Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain

Ryan Blair – Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain


I wish I could tell you I came up with the title of that book because it sounds soooo sweet!

I’ll get to the book in a minute, let me begin from the main purpose of this posting.

So it was just the beginning of summer of 2011 and a lot of changes were happening in my life from receiving a negative letter in the mail & email from a product I was promoting and really passionate (started to market it in Q4 of 2010). Also my friend had a serious injury and I recommended to contact Dallas Personal Injury Lawyers | Kraft & Associates, the lawyers helped him to get fair compensation. The letter was about that I can no longer market the way I have been marketing this particular product because of the nature of the product. I won’t go into the details of what exactly happen, but let’s just say when you have passion for something and a nasty letter comes in from the company because you share a true story of a testimonial and you can’t tell the truth about, you naturally make a decision to take your marketing efforts elsewhere. They wanted me to use their “replicated website.” If you have been following me for awhile, you know that replicated websites are the worse websites you can market on the internet because it doesn’t have YOU branding YOU in the front and the law of attraction doesn’t separate you from the masses. So I took my efforts elsewhere. The question was where?

After hanging out with 11 different companies like Sweat Equity Fitness, and studying their business model, – what made the most sense to me was asking my better half for her encouragement, prayers, and wisdom. As many of you know we just had our 3rd son, Luke, and her ultimate goal was health and nutrition. Luke also has diabetes and the way of cure is metformin which contains the active ingredient metformin hydrochloride (or metformin hcl). Metformin is available both in combination with other drugs, or as a single treatment (a monotherapy). So we tried several different products at “their taste parties” and to be quite honest, most of them tasted like chalk. I needed to replace my income quick because my dreams of bringing my wife home from work so she can be with our 3 boys was quickly chattering. She also knew that I was more entrepreneur minded than I was an employee type person, so she encouraged me to get up and work at my trade.

So we landed on a concept that I knew made a ton of sense. The 2 major reasons why new people in the industry struggle in direct sales (network marketing) is #1-recruiting and #2-auto shipment.  So about 2 years ago a company by the name of Visalus Sciences restructured their whole business model to fit into the current economy’s situation calling it “The Body By Vi Challenge.” People want things easily and free. So to squash the recruiting concern, they setup a killer online and offline model that “is internet approved ;-)” — instead of mesmerizing someone with a business opportunity, they have a 90 Day Fitness Challenge Party! So those that care to make extra income with the business can. Most importantly, those that don’t care to pay for something every month (auto shipment) can get their kit for free if you refer 3 other friends to do the challenge with you (no need to be apart of the business). If that wasn’t exciting enough, as a promoter they put you into a BMW car program by referring 12 friends to the Challenge/Business. If more people would know about the site:, then they could get prepared for this intense challenge and get through it with ease.

The business model is so simple that a 5 year old can explain it, see below:

… So the ultimate question in my new efforts is…1) Cesar did you really become a Shake mixer? Absolutely unequivocally yes!

2) But why Visalus Cesar? Answer: Because the Shake tastes like Cake and I lost 22 pounds in 25 days and my wife 17 pounds. They work. Look at my wife and my latest weight loss progress here: (digitally tracked with a social
proof digital scale called Withings

Not only is Visalus the fastest growing company in the home based business, direct sales industry, but the “culture” of the company is super amazing. Their concept really stood out to my wife and I. On top of that they promote giving back as an “auto shipment” to help local charities in need of food assistance. This is awesome and rare in the industry!

If you’d like to know how Visalus went from a few hundred people joining the challenge a month to 82,000+ people joining in ( September 2011 ), you deserve to read the CEO Ryan Blair’s book Nothing To Lose, Everything To Gain — How I Went From Gang Member To MultiMillionaire Entrepreneur

I had to opportunity to hang out with Ryan in Atlanta last weekend and his partners Blake Mallen and Nick Sarnicola.

In closing, I have an immediate goal to bring my wife home from work by June 2012. If you would like to be part of my organization, I remotely assist you (remote connection for free) to build your custom capture page sales funnel system. I can only tell you what works in marketing and how to attack your local market place. This is all about timing and you can position yourself with top income earners in Visalus if you get in early. Note: I do help you build your business and I won’t leave you as a dead soldier because I know what that feels like and it’s not healthy. If you’re ready to join my team, Click Join the Challenge and Become a Promoter by going here:

Let me end with this..There is a word called INTEGRITY. I joined a particular group of strong builders in Visalus for a reason. I will not mention names but there are a few “so-called leaders” that DO NOT live by Integrity and they are just in it for the money and are considered “company hoppers” that consults with unfair dismissal lawyers Melbourne. They throw people in and leave the struggling to become dead soldiers. I am disgusted with these people and they sell the “get rich quick scheme-dream.” Avoid this pain at all costs. If you give me 50%, I’ll give you 50%. If you give me 100%, I will give you 100% until you reach your goals and start running.

The Importance of Branding YOU

Hello my friend

Your awesome friend Cesar Ramirez here. Many folks have dreams of having a successful business on the internet so that they can essentially move anywhere in the world and still have that business through the internet. Just imagine, you have lived in a certain area all your life and you just want to pack up and be anywhere your heart desires with cash flow still coming in. Very few people understand cashflow. Let me paint you a picture. Wouldn’t you like to get paid on work you did 5…10…or even 20 years ago? It’s not a pie in the sky. This is called residual income (mailbox money). Money that you don’t have to go chasing for month after month. Just like in the insurance industry, you can build that book of business. Here’s another example of a business I started in July 2014 and still pays me month after month. [Click Here]

The question is, what is your passion? Can you build or work a vehicle (homebased business) so that you can work on your passions after?

From my years in the people industry, I have come to the conclusion that many of us stop dreaming at the age of 25. This is around the time you have either been beaten up by your peers at your job or just out of college and you still cannot find a job. So what do you do? Like my great friend and mentor Mr. Jim Rohn use to say, you work harder on yourself than you do at your job. Personal Development. 10 pages of a good book a day, and 15 minutes of a great audio book a day.

Here’s a recommendation that got my wife Xochitl and I started as a great foundation. Jeff Olson – The Slight Edge:


Audio Book:

That book changed my life.

The entrepreneur spirit is inside you. You just have to step back and look at your life from the age of 5 to the age of 15. What were your dreams? Dig deeper and put them down on a large poster board so you can open up that dream machine again.

Allowing yourself to put some part-time in working for yourself is a process. Go get a mirror or go to the bathroom and look at yourself. Tell yourself: I love you “your name”, and we are going to work together today on me because I know that if I work harder on me, I can influence others through my actions and words.

The beauty of working for yourself is all because you can manage your time. You are your only boss that would be your client. You set yourself clear defined financial goals of course. However, we first need to know the importance of branding ourselves online, if we do wish to have a successful online business.

First and foremost, it starts with affirmations and belief in yourself (every morning you wake up) as in the example above. If you are not willing to take the risk of taking chances, then you will have a slow growth, if any, in achieving anything at all in the entrepreneur world.

Secondly, writing an article with passion on a blog or eArticle sites. You have to write something out of your interest to attract like minded thinkers. The art of the pen is not a lost art, nor is it an esoteric preserve left only to the offbeat or intellectual. It is a vital part of living in a textual world, however much we have come to view our civilization as somehow more audio-visual than in the past. If you want to learn more about writing an article out of your own interest, start reading books, articles, news out of your own interest. Get ideas from there…then, start practicing your own ideas.

Lastly, it is indeed important to know the art of Video Marketing with your face in front as you noticed in [this example]. That website still brings me hundreds and thousands of dollars for something I did once. Viewers need to make sure that you are not a scammer/spammer. You are building that trust. Showing your face on the video and being professional wearing decent clothes and approach that would surely win customers from your list of targets.

Yours in Success,

Punk Kids Killed My Income!

My friends, at the end of the day you have to ask yourself, “Am I running an undercover business, or do I want people to know I am open for business?” After all, money only comes from one place and that’s people. Therefore, you deserve to be recognized by the masses online. The only way I know how to do that is to properly brand yourself.

Why Branding Yourself is Important?

Simple! Attraction Marketing’s foundation is “YOU“.

Now, I’m going to allow you to understand a simple concept. I spent the last 18 months learning how to brand myself properly and I did it with this Blog site early of 2010. This lead to learning new measures and developing my niche. Most of you know that I created my own marketing product ( because I wanted to solve people’s biggest pain. Spending too much outgoing money on Pay Per Click, SEO, Social Media, and not receiving a single qualified lead.

I recently ran a webinar with Russell Yurmal from Social Spin and you are fortunate enough to see here.  Let me shed some light on Russell and his team for a moment. I have spent hours and hours creating blog sites for clients to properly brand themselves, and at the end of the day I was burnt out from having to change their changing habits.  These guys blew me out of business because they are giving Blog sites away for free. How can I compete against that? So what I ended up doing was partnering up with them and I became a part of their affiliate system. I know what you’re thinking, can I become an affiliate too? Answer: Yes (but watch the webinar). You and I can make a small percentage off the sales of hundreds and thousands of blog sites and we didn’t have to lift a finger of technical knowledge because they got “The Factory” in place.

====> Click here to grab your FREE Blog site like this one now. (Make sure to let them know you want a custom header better than mine (Cough cough, I made mine).

Seriously, I’m a victim of “doing it yourself” and at the end of the day I didn’t make a dime playing techno-geek. It doesn’t make sense to. Your time is best spent doing what you love doing -> Making money. Additionally, using your blog site that Social Spin put together to write about your passions. What you will learn from the webinar below is “why it’s important to put yourself in the mind of the reader and connect to their pain.”

Now this pain is different for everyone. It could be about any topic that average people and/or business owners are struggling with (can be a technical article for example). Or talk about your product and service and how it has benefited you and your family. Or capture a reader by having them opt-in to get your free ebook drip on them with a few emails.  What Russel Yurmal at Free Blog Factory recommends is to focus on people’s pain first and give 80% FREE value and 20% sales. The sale always comes after giving enough FREE value in your email drip list (autoresponders), teleseminars and webinars.

Start your journey to “Branding You”. Watch the webinar.

To your massive success,

Cesar Ramirez

P.S. When you have your FREE blog setup, make sure to ask Russel’s team how you can create backlinks from your site to mine and I will do the same. (You’re going to love the traffic!)

The art and history of self hypnosis

About a year ago, my wife introduced me to a concept called Self-hypnosis. She heard about it through a gentlemen name Burt Goldman. It stemmed off from watching The Secret and then as some bold people do, decided to dig deeper. This lead into studies of Abraham Hicks which lead into the concepts of Self-Hypnosis. I’ve always thought it was a bit of strange concepts, but as I started to hear more about it through the audios that my wife had playing, I got intrigued and decided to write an article about the history of self-hypnosis. Enjoy and leave your feedback below on your experience or interest.

Lets talk about Hypnosis. I believe many of us is now addicted and exercising self hypnosis in their daily lives. While modern hypnosis is credited to Austrian Franz Anton Mesmer, it is actually an ancient practice. Hypnosis can be traced back as far as 3,000 years to the Evers Papyrus of Egypt. But Franz Anton Mesmer helps us to understand better modern hypnosis.

First allow me to thoroughly explain the history of hypnosis as self hypnosis is hypnosis minus another party hypnotizing you.

Franz Anton Mesmer was 32 when he received his medical qualifications. His dissertation was written on heavenly bodies on people’s health. This became the basis in which his philosophy of mesmerism would be founded on. His theory of magnetism would come from seeing a street magician use a magnet to get people to do his bidding.

Mesmer had success with patients when he used his new founded magnetism techniques. He then at the age of 43 moved to Paris. Mesmer had great fame and success until a group of people one of which was Benjamin Franklin began to investigate him. The group concluded that the people who were cured had done so with the powers of their own imagination and that their cure had nothing to do with Franz Anton Mesmer and his magnets.

It was in 1841 that Dr. James Braid would bring mesmerism back but this time be as hypnosis. Braid coined hypnosis from the Latin word Hypnos which happened to be the Greek god of sleep. Dr. Braid would go on to discover the fixed gaze technique that could cause a sleeplike state of mind. Many more people would follow suit and in the twentieth century Milton Erickson would begin to use hypnosis in his psychiatric practice. From there it was in 1958 that the American Medical Association accepted hypnosis as a medical form of treatment. It´s probably more effective though to read Bed Time Stories for Children to fall asleep.

As for the history of self hypnosis there have been important connections between self hypnosis and the Jewish cabalistic mysticism made. Before it was used in western medicine, self hypnosis was used for healing and as part of human religious practices. Self hypnosis now a days is widely accepted as a scientific approach to self discovery and change.

The extent in which self hypnosis has become widespread is apparent in all those self help audio tapes that people are buying and listening to while they are in bed. This method is done in the hopes of achieving positive results while a sleep that will carry over into the waking conscience. This is a far cry from the earlier day of hypnosis and even the earlier days of self hypnosis. As history has unfolded and knowledge has taken shape, we have learned that if you have a problem or a bad habit hypnosis can be used to fix or cure your problem.

More and more people are learning more about hypnosis and bypassing a hypnotist and doing their own hypnotizing. No longer are people dependent upon a trained hypnotist for them to be able to use hypnosis to bring about positive change in their lives.

I suggest that everyone, must practice Self hypnosis each day. Simply, because life now-a-days is filled with so much stress…Keep your mind trim by giving it a chance each day to rest and properly process information. Hypnosis can also be used to accelerate healing, so any winter ailments will quickly get better and a routine of practising hypnosis can lead to a general improvement in health.

At the moment, one of the famous self hypnosis is “The Silva Method”, this is the name given to a self help program developed by José Silva, which claims to increase an individual’s IQ and sense of personal well-being by developing their higher brain functions. Proponents believe that it can improve a person’s self image, allow them to think in a clearer manner, and that it can assist people in overcoming conditions such as nicotine addiction. So, if you want your partner to get rid of smoking, then you must of-course, get so much knowledge and practice “The Silva Method of Hypnosis”. Many people are also addicted to alcohol and drugs, this is harder addiction to overcome than nicotine. If you have strong addiction for drugs then visit St Louis drug rehab center and get treatment, read their popular take on it.

According to notable author Arthur C. Clarke and former stage magician James Randi, the Silva method consists of the application of positive thinking, visualization meditation, and self hypnosis. Some, including Silva himself, believe that it can be used to develop paranormal abilities such as ESP, and that practicing it can allow you to tap into a higher consciousness.

The Silva Method is one of a number of therapeutic techniques sometimes grouped under the name Human Potential Movement.

Silva began developing the method; formerly known as Silva Mind Control, in the 1940s before launching it commercially in the 1960s.

It developed out of Silva’s belief that the thoughts and actions of 90% of the world’s population were governed by the left hemisphere of their brain; limiting them using only logical, intellectual, objective means of problem resolution. Silva believed that by training people to think with both the right brain hemisphere as well as their left they could access information stored at a subconscious level. According to Skeptical author Robert Carroll, the Silva method appears to be based on the work of Roger Wolcott Sperry, but with Silva’s own twists in it that is claimed to make it an inaccurate model.

Your OWN custom system

I woke up today a bit teed off in the industry. I know I may get some rants on this subject but I just want to tell you my experience from a user/producer. I have had success in the industry of Network Marketing and my niche is online marketing. Now there are a lot of systems out there that you can sign up for and they’ll teach you a lot of nuggets, the problem is that they are overloaded with (technical term: CRAP). Not all of it is crap, but it’s just information overload. I’m sorry if you don’t agree. The problem is that you will end up confusing the SH*T out of your team if you don’t have something that is a copy and paste system. I pretty much sum it up in this video below on my thoughts and what I believe works and will continue to work.

Sure you can learn Pay-Per-Click, Social Media, Organic Article Writing, or Classified marketing (my personal favorite), but until you realize that ALL you need is to squeeze information out of someone. They connect to “you” through video. If you are not comfortable in front of video, then learn how to be ok with it. Just be you. I have tested this concept with 5 different MLM companies and 4 direct sale companies and it just simply works.

Items needed:

1) Squeeze page (your video of you telling the prospect who the heck you are looking for to be on your team with a lead capture list builder (example here).
2) Forward that opt-in prospect to either your replicated website to view a few videos of your opportunity. Or squeeze some more information like address and phone number to deliver your product samples with a simple video of your presentation (no longer than 40minutes) of your opportunity video (no other links should be surrounded). – (see 2nd page example here)
3) some simple ad creations with some hyperlinks to your squeeze page
4) save those simple ads in a text file
5) copy and paste ad information to different websites (I love Craigslist)
