Actually, I’m not sure the first time I heard Dan Kennedy say these words “Money On Demand”, he was talking about the Info-Marketing Business at the time, although the words summarize something all Entrepreneurs should strive to achieve.
Breaking the barrier of limitations, imaginary, real, or self-imposed.
This ability, among so many other things, is one of amazing achievements you will experience as your develop and adopt Glazer-Kennedy Marketing and Business principles.
I think about those words, literally every day – “Money On Demand”
And believe me, it can shake you up at first, once you really internalize what it means. And perhaps, it will even offend you – to think, to realize, to know that Making Money really doesn’t have to be difficult, slow, or confusing.
What I did not say was that you can create “Money On Demand” without work, effort, time, complexity (at least if you want to sustain it), or that is was necessarily easy.
However, what stands in your way from achieving this are specific, actions, principles, and strategies that can be replicated to any business.
What “Money On Demand” symbolizes, at least to me, is the ability to create my own reality, control my own future, enjoy unlimited possibilities.
No time for a long story here, but I first realized how important this was, as I grew up, watching my mom raise my brother and I by herself for the first 10 years of my life, working her ass off, and now currently still working her ass off, having been a Registered Nurse at Union Hospital longer than the oldest Janitor and outlasting any of the Directors…
I watched her tirelessly devote her life and efforts to us, no matter how many hours it took to provide the money we needed to get by and get the most out of the ‘important’ aspects of life.
We never had what many people would consider the “luxuries” of life, even for middle income families, but we didn’t go without and we learned life, the right way, by our standards.
But the formula never changed…
What we needed divided by amount of income left over after the bills each paycheck, determined how long we had to wait to get it.
Now, the details you’ll have to catch me another time for, but reassured, it all worked out, she met the man I consider my dad and we were and are still blessed to have her parents, my grandparents intricately involved all along the way.
So really, she wasn’t by herself – we had a team – and we won.
And we didn’t go without – my mom would NOT go back and change anything – because the outcome worked, for her, for us, but not in spite of that fact that this was all she knew.
The only sad news is, my mom’s still playing the game…and while she’s about 2 years from retirement, she will still never make the money she’s worth, in my opinion and in any of the thousands (literally) of the patients she has taken care of.
The REASON and my point today is…
BECAUSE, she didn’t and doesn’t CONTROL her own income, her ability in your chosen role in life has limited her to X dollars for X amount of time.
Budgeting her life through the numbers – SET – on her bi-weekly paycheck.
And she’s fine with that. And believe me, my parents have done well for themselves and retirement with the “American Dream” as the best of any employee could.
It was growing up that I learned what I must do, if I wanted to live the life I want to live…
CONTROL MY OWN INCOME
And the advanced philosophy on that is as Dan says,
“The Ability To Create Money On Demand”

I sorted chuckled to myself last week and again yesterday, thinking about St. Patrick’s Day and all. Really, I do anything different that day than another, but still – I enjoy the holiday and find it sort of weight lifting and heart lightening.
It dawned on me last week when I was completing a Email Campaign for a brand new business Launch (more a business within a business launch) for a Client.
And tying into St. Patrick’s Day to hopefully, have some good luck (pun intended) with email open rates…basically disguising the purpose of the email.
I was writing and working in the topic on every ones mind – the “R” word.
That’s when it began to all come together, not just the copy, I talking about my own thinking! Of course, I teach it, write it, live it, and certainly learn it from Dan and Bill, that right now is the greatest time, probably anyone who’s alive has ever had to get rich and build a business.
Because…so goes the saying, that I believe, there really is a Pot of Gold at the end of the Rainbow – the ironic part of that is what it takes for the Rainbows to occur.
Now, I am no scientist, need a little leeway on this, let’s say at least we’re talking figuratively here…
Rainbows happen after storms happen.
Times get bad before they get better.
Projects go wrong before they get you rich.
Dan Kennedy says (and maybe someone before him) “in every adversity lies an equal or greater opportunity)
Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure.
You Bet It Is!
And right now when things are down is when the strong survive and when the best chance for creating a little luck is in your favor.
Here’s a motto for you:
“When the going gets tough – the tough…get excited!”
Because they know there is more opportunity, less competition, abundant market share, and upside, upside, upside, all around!!!
I was talking with my Dad last night, who is about as conservative as it gets and still breathing and he is plotting and planning for retirement from Eli Lilly within the next 24 months, 100% guaranteed.
And he’ll make a decent income after he’s retired, anyhow, unless of course Eli Lilly or the Government go out of business, which is obviously highly likely, at least the latter of the two.
I asked him what he was doing with his money right now and how he was positioning in the Stock Market…
“We’re In – Scott – Buying as much as I can buy and still be smart about it”
And I thought, damn, I have taught him something, he’s been listening.
That’s a joke, he’s a smart man without me.
But if a traditional, employee, minded conservative, 6-24 months from retirement is
What the heck are we complaining about…as my Dad astutely pointed out, he never thought in all his investing years he would ever be able to amass the volume of portfolio he is now able to amass, on a ‘working man’s pay’!
He’s got the right idea.
And we all need to adopt it.
Of course the Sunshine in our Life and Rainbow in our Economic Storm is that we have the greatest investment of all, that others don’t!
You’re Skills, Talents, Education, Marketing Ability, and YOUR BUSINESS!
These are by far the best investment a person can make.
Quite frankly, you’re plum crazy to not be running around the campfire dancing for more Rain-bows and chugging down some St. Patty’s Day Lucky!
Of course, you’ve have to make the right kind of investments in your business, if you want to create your own luck.
And turn this Economic Recession into your Business Revival!
If you want to have your very own Pot of Gold, overflowing with cash and customers – you absolutely do not want to miss this month’s Chapter Meeting!

Monday was my “phone-day” for the month where I cram together all my implementation calls with my Private Coaching Group members, have a Q and A opportunity with Mastermind Members and Host a Chapter Plus “Take Action” call to review last months material.
Dan Kennedy preached this time management strategy of ‘clumping’. Where you plan to complete similar tasks together and allocate an entire day for that one thing rather than a bunch of times throughout the month. It takes the task from being ‘random’ and makes for a more focused productive day for both myself and my members.
Often, as the case was Monday, conversations move quickly from the ‘nitty gritty’ details about marketing and the action plan for the month, to “entrepreneurial life issues” I like to call them – where we get into brief discussion about things only (we) understand.
Some members even mention the practice of ‘therapy’ as being part of what I do for them on these calls and in meetings. This is not uncommon. In my participation for 2 years in Bill Glazer and Lee Milteer’s International Coaching Program, Peak Performers, I very often thought to myself that one of the main reasons I’d fly to Baltimore, leave ‘my little world’ for 2 or 3 days was for just that – Therapy!
And to be blunt, if you’re doing all you should be doing to build your business and grow your wealth…if you’re ‘busy’, profitably busy – and you don’t feel like you need ‘therapy’ from time to time, something’s wrong.
Honestly, who do you share your deepest aspirations with, your secret financial objectives, and feelings of deserve… Who do you open up to about the reality of business failures and frustrations, about trying times and challenging decisions… Even if you have an involved and understanding spouse, a business partner or friend, you as a team still need additional support, ideas, information, methods, and help… You need a “Place for Prosperity™” as Dan and Bill accurately refer to GKIC and our Universe
Every month, we hold our own place right here in Indy: www.NoBSIndy.com/ChapterMeeting
I know, “Therapy”, you’re shaking your head.
Of course I’m not talking about therapy in the medical sense or needing psychiatric care, I’m talking about everything from simply needing someone to vent to, to share your dreams and visions, all the way to someone to bitch, moan, throw your hands up in the air and want to give up to, just in time to be picked back up, assured that everybody else is feeling the same way from time to time and that you are not alone and it’s okay…
A few saying that make my point clearly:
Bill Glazer’s “The entrepreneur is the loneliest person on the planet” and I’m not sure where this one comes from, “No man/woman is an island”, meaning success doesn’t happen by yourself.
Without scheduling time to reflect, refocus, make sure you’re on the right track, and invest time into doing what you do, more, better, faster, and always keeping your antenna’s up and ready for new opportunity – it’s only a matter of time before you become burnt out, stressed out, frustrated, overwhelmed, and eventually, lost and helpless…
If you try to fight the obvious necessity of being plugged into a serious, entrepreneurial environment with proof of results and successful members, you could end up needing a different type of therapy, if you know what I mean.
Look, if your offended by now, I don’t blame you, and I’ll tell you what you already know, that is that you’ll never know about the opportunities and the possibilities and the money that you could’ve – should’ve – would’ve been exposed to – unless you just jump in.
I remember Dan saying, “success is transparent” you can read, watch, learn, study, and choose to emulate (or not) the behavior of business success and wealth achievement of all types of entrepreneurs in all different industries.
I’ve given you, perhaps the most significant strategy to break through the struggles of the economy and recession, right here, right now, to go where other people are already doing it! Just click right here www.NoBSIndy.com/ChapterMeeting
I’ll tell you two little secrets, I still need “entrepreneurial therapy” each and everyday, I experience all the same setbacks and feelings and emotions as I’ve described here. That’s why I stay connected, and surround myself with people like you and learn and immerse myself in all different ways and all different topics.
The other secret is the most successful people do the most, study the most, get involved the most…your breakthroughs can only be as big as your commitment to and investment in yourself – that’s a rule, not made by me, Dan, Bill, President Obama, or anyone else you know – it’s a rule of the universe, no sense in fighting that one…
And if you’re looking for a ‘safe haven’ from the recession BS and evils of the economy, and an Entrepreneurial Success Environment to clear the way for your business endeavors, jolt you forward and accelerate your progress you can enter our Marketing and Money Making high powered intense plotting and planning strategy session for your own market and industry dominance at this month’s Glazer-Kennedy Insider’s Circle Chapter Meeting!

Last night the title of Hannity was “No One To Blame” and I found that very relevant, not in the political sense that was meant by the show – rather to our given situation in yours and my businesses, right now.
To me, “no one to blame”, represents one of the most important aspects of success and the wealthy – it eliminates excuses. I remember recently reading an article or something Dan Kennedy wrote, stating that in all times, in all economies, people get rich and people go out of business.
So, why then do so many people try to achieve business and financial success and so many fail…no matter in what economy.
It has little to do with what is going on around them,
and much more to do with what they are going around doing.
As example, even in an industry such as financial services, a good friend of mine and successful member, an entrepreneur who’s into multiple endeavors said to me just the other day…(in my words, slightly restated)
“sure, it’s hard right now, but there is so much opportunity. People who’ve been burned and not communicated with properly are finally willing to switch advisors who otherwise wouldn’t have…I’m able to pick up a lot of business. And I’m offering things that others don’t even know about, things that match what people need, now”
Why is he finding, making, creating (key words: ‘finding’ ‘making’ ‘creating’) ways to make an industry that has been hit as hard as any, in confidence, reliability, and credibility, etc.
It’s because of what He ‘does’, not about what others do around him.
Another little saying, “in every adversity, lies an equal or greater opportunity”.
Basically, I’m talking about ‘taking responsibility’ for where you are at and where you want to be.
Here are the keys I’d focus on:
Know where you want to be.
Have a Plan to get there.
Go to work on executing it.
Make no excuses.
Adjust and continue.
And if you want the secret to going from improbable success to impossible failure…it’s that you must rise above the ‘general public’ and the situational economy and create your own universe to do business in.
It starts by surrounding yourself with other people who follow and buy into the same principles and being in an environment that supports your goals and objectives – and where you can be armed with strategies for Marketing and Money Making Success proven to work right now, when you need results and stability.
Take a breath of fresh air and relax, it’s always good news or bad news, for the most part though, you get to make your own news either way!
There’s no one to blame, so long as you take control and get busy doing the things that lead to success – you choose, same as anyone else, whether you reach your goals, now, later, or never – you choose, same as anyone else, whether you find ways to succeed now in this economy or you don’t.
Rest assured there’s people who aren’t sitting this one out, they are finding ways to conquer the recession, seize opportunity, and make the most of it – now – they are still moving forward, making money, starting new businesses, launching more projects, and chasing their dreams and creating their lifestyle…
And you can too!
Here’s to your Success –
Scott J Manning
