I’d never heard anyone talk like that before – This Week on JMO.com

The guy obviously knew what he was talking about… I’d just never heard anything like it before. And, as I listened I never would have imagined what he was saying would cause me to change everything I was doing.

But, before I get into the story here’s the tutorials I posted this week in case you missed any:

Back to the story…

I was watching a presentation from a well-known online marketer named Frank Kern. Maybe you’ve heard of him.

And, he was talking about the idea of “suspending your disbelief”.

I’d never heard that phrase before.

But he told the story of how he and another well-known internet marketer, John Reese, had suspended their disbelief long enough to try a different approach to marketing online and the crazy success they’d had as a result.

He told several other stories of people who had suspended their disbelief long enough to take action and the success they’d had as a result.

It really struck me because as he was talking I couldn’t help but think of all the times I’d NOT suspended my disbelief… and how it had stopped me from acting on ideas that may have been wildly successful.

That day changed my life…

Because, I stopped letting my skepticism stop me from acting on ideas. From that day forward, I vowed to let every idea succeed or fail “on the field” not in my head.

And, all the success I’ve had since is a result of that one decision.

I bring this up because I know a lot of you are probably dealing with this too. Letting your disbelief stop you from acting on YOUR OWN ideas.

And, I created this video specifically to help you with that:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EB_vYbeVOjA

In it, you’ll hear about real people like you and I who have gone through incredible transformations in their web development career.

The father from a small town in the UK who got over his fear of “not knowing it all” to build a successful freelance business so he can provide for his three kids.

The young developer who was able to tackle the “ghosts” in his head and get his very first client.

The musician who suddenly had it “click” and knew exactly what he needed to do to brand himself and attract the kinds of jobs he was after.

And more…

I made this video to inspire you. To motivate you and give you the confidence to keep going… to suspend your disbelief long enough to act on your dreams.

I hope it hits home for you.

I hope hearing how others just like you and I have made this kind of transformation will encourage to make one of your own.

I hope you’ll be writing me to tell me YOUR story.

So, please if there’s only ONE podcast of mine you ever listen to, let this be the one:

Thanks and let me know what you think after watching it.

P.S. Just a reminder about the discount I was able to nab you for my top recommended course on Udemy from Rob Percival. If you’re looking for one place to learn everything technical you need to know, this course is it:

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

I have been following John Morris for several years now. His instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO-level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I can’t speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
