One of the many things that attracted me to the #InternetMarketingCollege was the philosophy regarding member services and support. This is a story by Harvey MacKay that reminded me of our philosophy: treat everyone with kindness and over deliver each and every time.
“One rainy night years ago, a gentleman and his wife entered the lobby of a small hotel in Philadelphia. The man asked the clerk if a room was available.
The clerk, who was actually the hire manager, was a friendly man who prided himself on superior customer service. He said that unfortunately the hotel was completely booked.
“However,” he said, “rather than send you out in the rain at 1 a.m., I would be happy to offer you my room. It’s not a suite, but it will be comfortable for the night.”
The man tried to object, but the clerk insisted. The next morning, as he paid his bill, the gentleman is to the clerk: “You are the kind of manager who should be the boss of the best hotel in the United States.”
Two years passed, but the two men stayed in touch. One day the clerk/manager received a letter from the guest inviting him to New York for a visit and including a round-trip airline ticket. When the clerk:manager arrived in New York, the man met him and led him to the corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street. He pointed to a brand-new building. “There is the hotel I want you to manage,” said the man. “You must be joking,” said the astonished clerk/manager.
“I can assure you that I am not,” said the man, William Waldorf Astor, and the palace that he had built was the original Waldorf (later Waldorf-Astoria) Hotel.
The moral of this story is you never know when kindness will come full circle.
Kind words and kind actions start with kind thoughts. In a hyper-competitive world, we might be tempted to take a dramatically different approach. But the tactics don’t produce any winners.
Mean people are not happier, or necessarily more successful. If you don’t believe me, spend a few minutes on Twitter or Facebook. The comments are too frequently cruel or extreme, and they breed even more ugliness.
Pastor and author C. Neil Strait said: “Kindness is more than deeds. It is an attitude, an expression, a look, a touch. It is anything that lifts another person.”
Contrary to the old saying, nice people can finish first. The key is to know how to use kindness to your advantage. If you think you might need a refresher course, here are some steps you can take to make kindness a habit.
>>First, be kind to yourself. You’ll find being nice to others easier if you build your self-respect with posit journeys about your personality and achievements.
>>Treat everyone the way you want to be treated, regardless of their position or job title. No one is too big to be kind and courteous, but many people are too small.
>> say no when necessary. It’s kinder to say no to somewhere you cannot devote adequate time and attention than to do a half-hearted job.
>>Do something nice everyday. Kindness pays most when you don’t do it for payback.
>>Take the high road. Trust me, it’s the road less traveled. It’s a big, wide highway with no traffic jams. And no road rage.
There’s an ID story about a king who had a beautiful ring and three sons who each wanted it. When the kind died, he left three rings for his sons and a note that said, “My dear sons, one of these rings is real, and two are fake. The way you will know who has the real ring will be kind and generous to all people.”
Each of the three sons spent the rest of his life being good to others – to prove that he had the real ring.
Mackay’s Moral: Funny thing about kindness: the more it’s used, the more you have it.

Thanks for taking a quick minute to read this.
I know you are super busy and I value your time.
Something HUGE has happened in my life and I’d like to ask a quick favor.
Would you mind reading this email and responding to me?
This is a very BIG change for me and it would mean a lot, thanks!
I have 3 VERY important points that I want to make with you today.
First off, I have stepped away from Orenda International as their VP of Business Development & working as a hybrid corporate guy in the field.
I am maintaining my downline with the company, as Orenda’s products are life-changing and I am a BIG fan (obviously).
Not only are their products the best in each category I have EVER seen, their owners and corporate team are some of the most amazing people I’ve ever had the privilege of working with!
Yes, this also means that I am no longer driving the Tesla!
1. => I have officially left Orenda International.
Let me share some insight…
I went to drop off a couple of the Clean Burn Shape 10 Day Cleanses to an old business partner of mine a couple of weeks ago (he ended up losing 10+ lbs on the cleanse!)
When I did, I bumped into an old networking buddy and some pretty interesting conversations took place.
What these 2 visionaries showed me was something that literally changed the course and direction of my career path.
They showed me months of intense focus and labor of their plan to build their new company, which is the best thing I’ve seen happen to this industry.
And here is my big news…
2. => I’m the new Chief Sales Officer for the World’s First Internet Marketing College!
I was BLOWN AWAY, to say the least, by what I saw.
I instantly joined the “No Sleep Club”, as this concept is desperately needed in the marketplace…
Everything from the concept, the curriculum, the compensation plan and the huge gap in the marketplace all equaled brain overload.
I knew I had to make some big boy decisions.
Stay laser focused on building a team with Orenda or be a part of the executive corporate team of something that I know will be a major movement.
With all of this being said, I accepted the position of Chief Sales Officer of a brand new Internet Marketing College (IMC).
My role is to build the company from the ground floor…
We have had 5 bonafide million dollar per year plus internet marketers join the team just in the past 24 hours.
Here is why the biggest leaders in the industry are jumping all over this opportunity.
That is available to EVERYONE, including YOU!
We know not everyone will achieve this but several will.
We have people that went from a grand total of earning $60 online to bumping that up to a cool $1.7 million just a year later.
(This is not a claim that you will do the same, as this is not a typical result)
My phone has been ringing nonstop with people inquiring about THE Internet Marketing College…
DO NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!
The internet is in my humble opinion the greatest wealth creation vehicle created in the past million years bar none! Knowing how to capitalize on it is the difference between making a little bit of $ and making as much as you truly desire!
And it can help you get more Traffic, Leads, & Sales for ANY business you want, including any direct sales company you might be building.
Contact me privately for details – we have a 3 day mastermind happening here in Scottsdale, AZ next Friday – Sunday, May 20-22.
Tickets are normally $1,200 but with my discount code, your tix are just $10 for all 3 days!
3. => Come Meet the Corporate Team and See the Vision for Yourself!
This is for all business owners, realtors, loan officers, internet marketers, affiliate marketers & network marketers!!!
ANYONE who wants to profit online or increase their current online revenues deserves to look at this closely right now!
I look forward to seeing you out here in AZ.
Mark my words… I am rarely wrong about stuff like this…
This will be the BIGGEST MOVEMENT to hit the internet marketing space in a long time!

P.S. I am around this weekend, as I am in San Diego with one of the founders, as he is a keynote speaker at a very large internet marketing conference taking place this weekend.
If you are attending No Excuses Summit 7, be sure to track down or send me a text so we can meet up. I’d love to introduce you to Chris.
***I am not building a team as a marketer – I am building the company’s launch team & working with our leaders to create MASSIVE results!***
One of the things I’ve learned over the years that have ensured my success is to check the T2 factor. What’s that? You haven’t heard of the T2 factor… It’s simple. Trend + Timing = T2. Here is how I’ve broken it down…
Before jumping into a new business venture, I always want to make sure that whatever I am going to look at is a trend and not a fad. A trend is something that will stick around for years, whereas a fad tends to be here today and gone tomorrow. Merriam-Webster defines a trend as:
: something that is currently popular or fashionable
I believe a current trend is something like peer-to-peer sharing like Uber & Lyft are with ride-sharing, whereas, something like #hastags or ear gauges are fads. OK… Once I’ve established that what I am contemplating diving into is a trend and not a fad, I look for the other T which is equally important…
The second T in the T2 factor is Timing. What I mean by this is, am I on the front end of the trend time wise or have I missed the opportunity to truly capitalize on the trend? It’s no different from a surfer in the ocean. All of the force and energy are gained by being in front of the wave. This makes it virtually effortless. It is nearly impossible to catch a wave by being behind the wave. No different with having the right timing…
So now that you know what my T2 factor is, let’s take a look at what I am getting involved in and how this may be a solid fit for you.
Internet Marketing: Is it a trend or is it a fad? I think this whole internet of things and internet marketing are here to stay and will only continue to get bigger and bigger by the second. (Thanks Al Gore, your “invention” rocks!)
It’s probably fairly safe to assume (hate that word) that the internet and marketing on the internet will be here in some form or fashion for 100’s or 1,000’s of years to come. The biggest question is how big will the internet and internet marketing become?
We’ve seen internet marketing change course and correct itself since it’s inception. Can you remember AOL, dial-up or life before Google? I shudder to even think that far back but, now I’m dating myself.
I recently grabbed an infographic that shows how crazy the internet has become.
People thought Jeff Bezos was crazy when he started an online book store. How was he going to compete with the big box book stores? Barnes and Noble & Borders were the definitive “go-to” book stores. Not only did Amazon succeed, they literally attributed to putting Borders out of business and drastically cut into B&N’s bottom line. It’s no secret that what Bezos did with books was just the tip of the iceberg. Amazon added EVERYTHING sold retail new and used. They have pioneered more than just books. Amazon does over $200,000 in sales in 60 seconds! Let that sink in. One of the coolest parts of internet marketing is that ANYONE with a little knowledge can make money and for those that truly understand how to harness the power of the internet, their fortunes can be made in record time!
With all of this opportunity, where does someone go to find out the nuts and bolts? There are so many gurus that are out selling this course and that course… constantly bombarding their clients to buy more and more and more and… it is a never ending cycle. But… what if there was a place where anyone regardless of their background or experience could come and learn? A place that serves everyone… realtors, business owners, would be internet and affiliate marketers, network marketers, photographers, doctors, lawyers, etc. Essentially ANYONE that wants to put the speed, power and profit of the internet to work for them!
There finally is this mythical place… Introducing the Internet Marketing College. Whether you want to learn how to build a website, a lead capture page, how to profit from Shopify, list building, affiliate marketing and countless other topics specifically designed to assist you in getting online and turning up the profits, the Internet Marketing College is your go to place for all things Internet Marketing related. Established by Chris Record and a team of industry experts… the Internet Marketing College is launching in August 2016.
If you’ve never heard of Chris, let me tell you a little about the brilliance of the guy who is creating the Internet Marketing College. His name is Chris Record and Chris has carved out a serious niche in the IM space. Chris began his marketing career with a real estate investment education college more than a decade ago. One of the real stand-alone unique characteristics of the real estate investment college was their use of the ISD educational process. This left an indelible mark on Chris that I’ll tie back in momentarily. After the real estate bubble popped, Record got involved in the internet marketing world and quickly became a top producer with a popular internet marketing blogging company. Not satisfied with the tools and resources provided by that company, Chris took it upon himself to develop the much needed resources for his business himself. He parlayed these tools and resources into becoming a highly successful affiliate marketer and started making money fast and furious launching other people’s products with the affiliate business model. Chris, being the smart entrepreneur, started offering his products to other savvy marketers and people began experiencing growth in their businesses unlike anything they had experienced prior.
The word began to spread and Chris was sought after to speak at countless conferences and events. He began pouring himself into others and his students’ results grew leaps and bounds. Chris noticed that the internet marketing industry has a real need for a solid, college concept internet marketing education system. Chris immediately decided to combine the knowledge of internet marketing with the ISD educational process that created his first taste of success from his early real estate investor days. The result is the birth of the Internet Marketing College!
I’ve recently made a course correction to my career. I’ve partnered up with Chris Record for what will be the world’s first true Internet Marketing College. This is a natural fit for me and once I discovered what Chris and his team of experts, instructors and leaders where doing with the Internet Marketing College, I joined the sleepless night club. I could not stop thinking about this and I knew without a seconds hesitation that I had to be a part of this from the very beginning. The Internet Marketing College passed my T2 factor test. The internet is a trend that is not going away in my lifetime and the timing of the college model is nothing short of brilliant. This was one of the easiest decisions I’ve ever made.
We are hosting the 1st Internet Marketing College Mastermind in Scottsdale, AZ May 20-22, 2016. Tickets are normally $1,200 (Chris has been selling mastermind tickets to this outside of the college format for years!). Since you have someone on the inside, I can hook you up with a $1,190 discount… Tickets are just $10 when you use the promo code “chrisrecord”.
Now that you’ve watched the video, go order your tickets TODAY before it sells out.

Day 2 of the 22 Day 22 Pushup Challenge…
I nominate Todd Falcone for the 22 day push up challenge (no bucket of ice water required)
Every day an average of 22 veterans commit suicide. That’s 22 people EVERY SINGLE DAY. As a community we pride ourselves on being proud and never backing down, but it’s important to know that there are times when we all need help. Facing your demons is not a recognition of failure, but rather an act that requires immense courage. We are all here for one another, and I hope that as a community and a brotherhood we can work together to get that number to zero.
Live up to that creed of Semper Fidelis, and always be there for your family of fellow veterans.
Day 2 of my 22 day 22 Pushup Challenge completed. My nominee for today is Todd Falcone – The Fearless Networker!! You start tomorrow!
The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push-ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted (from your knees) push-ups or that you have to stop and take a break that’s fine. The goal is to get them all done in one video
* Every day you must nominate a different person. Let’s reach as many people as possible.
* And finally, have fun with this. This is a simple and fun way to get the word out about a matter that more people need to be aware of. These brave men and women put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms only to get back and feel lost. It’s sad that so many good veterans feel that suicide is the only way out.
And for those of you that saw me nominate my wife Leslie Hamburger yesterday, she CRUSHED it today! Her pushups are better than a lot of the guys I know.
Check out day 1 of Leslie’s 22 day 22 pushup challenge. The funniest part is, Leslie was out walking and exercising with Jenny, a dear friend of hers. She asked Jenny to film her pushups and at the very end Leslie nominated Jenny. You’ve got to see this!
This is going to be a blast watching this awareness spread… who will be next? #22pushupchallenge
Day 1: 22 Pushup Challenge
Ok, let’s get down to business. Yesterday, I was nominated to participate in the 22 Pushup Challenge. I accepted and today, it was time to get down to business.
As a Marine Corps veteran, I might know a thing or three about hitting the deck and pushing my face off… Only, that was 20 years ago. Am I really that old? PLEASE, DO NOT ANSWER THAT!
So in full disclosure, I decided the best way to attack this without looking stupid was to do it at the gym BEFORE I started working out. That is exactly what I did… I arrived to my gym at my normal Monday morning time, dropped my 5 year old off at Kid’s Club, stowed my gym bag in my locker and found a nice little piece of solitude (or so I thought).
One of the cool parts of this challenge is nominating someone else. I thought long and hard about who I was going to nominate. I have some friends that are just “too cool for school” and I highly doubt they would participate. Careful, I might just nominate you! As much fun as this is, I want to reiterate WHY we are doing this…
On average, 22 veterans commit suicide per day. The struggle of PTSD is real. Please take time out of your day to watch the video, acknowledge your freedom and the price other people have paid for YOUR FREEDOM… and then, go do something! Make a point to help the veterans that have fought for the very freedom you enjoy! Ok. Off my soapbox. #22kill #22pushupchallenge
Watch the video to see who I nominated to start their 22 days tomorrow! Now get on your face and PUSH!
Be sure to check out my live twitter feed and see what mischief I am getting into… http://www.twitter.com/mhhamburger
My friend and business associate Jerry Spangler nominated me for the 22 Push Up Per Day Challenge. The way it works is that once nominated, a person must complete 22 push-ups everyday for 22 days straight?
Why on Earth would someone want to do 22 push-ups per day? The answer is chilling…
On average, 22 American veterans take their life through suicide each day. They come home from combat a different person than when they left and unfortunately, our country is ill-equipped to provide the much needed attention and support they desperately require. That is mind boggling. It’s 22 more that are dying than need to each day!
This is not much, but it is intended to drive awareness and support. I’ve accepted the challenge and I am committed to up keeping my end of this… I shot a quick video below accepting the 22 push-up challenge and making myself accountable!
I will be the first to admit that I am much more excited about getting on the deck and knocking out push-ups than I was when I got challenged to fill a bucket up of ice water and then dump it on my head!
Please consider doing a little to help. There are countless organizations that provide the assistance our veterans deserve. My favorites are: The Semper Fi Fund and Fisher House. There are several solid organizations that provide assistance and unfortunately, there are several that don’t send much of the donated monies to those in need. I recommend looking up any charity you are interested in giving your money to and checking their score. The resource I use is CharityWatch.org
Be sure to stay plugged into my Facebook page or my Instagram account, as I will be posting videos there each day… I’ll also be nominating others to join me to raise awareness. Please spread the word!
Great day friends!
Business lessons from a 5 year old: So it is Saturday morning at my house and my oldest daughter had some of her girlfriends over last night for a sleep over… I have never heard so many giggles in 24 hours in my entire lifetime.
I want to share something with you, adults. Have you ever wondered what children have that many adults lack?
It is having a clear-cut goal and the persistency to achieve the desired goal NO MATTER WHAT. I call it sticktuitiveness!
My recently turned 5 year old daughter goes to a special pre-school integrated with a gymnastics center. She has been working on her cartwheel for a long, long time… I’m thinking at least since the beginning of the school year 8 months ago.
I have seen more cartwheel attempts than I care to mention. I would guess that not a day goes by where there are not at least 40-50 cartwheel attempts.
“Hey Dad, watch this…” “Hey Mom, watch this…”
This girl has NEVER quit. She has NEVER stopped trying. She knew she would master her cartwheel. Day after day after day after day…. She put in the work at school. She put in the work at home. She is 5 years old.
He started our 10 day program, you may have heard me mention it before… I recently finished the 10 days and dropped 11 pounds. So my buddy, we will call him Mr. X… Mr. X immediately dropped 5 pounds in 4 days…That is 25% of his total goal. So awesome. And then it happened… he quit! Why? Great question. Lousy answer!
Try the 10 day cleanse or order a 1 day sample: http://bit.ly/trycbs
We have seen a 100% success rate we every single person that completes the cleanse and follows through! I cannot do anything to help a quitter. I just smile, shake my head and wonder what could have possibly taken him off track?
So back to my 5 year old… She nailed her cartwheel yesterday! Her hard work and persistence has paid off. She is head and shoulders ahead of the other students in her class. My wife Leslie and I looked at each other as we were watching her doing cartwheel after cartwheel after cartwheel this morning and we had the realization that this is just the start.
Why is it that a young child will persist without exception until they nail it and a successful adult is so willing to toss their desires off to the side so easily?
I’m amazed by how quickly some people are to quit on themselves. As a dear friend & mentor said last week, “All excuses are equal!”
We all pay a price, the real difference is the payoff! How far are you willing to go to achieve your dreams?
Do me a favor today… Ask yourself 1 question and answer yourself authentically… What are your desires, goals and dreams?
Are you ready to get on track to make your dreams a reality? If so, allow me the opportunity to show you an income vehicle that is changing people’s lives. Remember my friend Melissa? I told you about her earlier this week…
This is real and it works… if you do! See it for yourself: http://bit.ly/cbslive1
I’ll never promise you this is “Easy” but I will always promise you that it is worth it. You are worth it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend…
