If you’re a member of my free, Private FB Mastermind Group, you know that my family and I had to evacuate for Hurricane Matthew last week.

That was quite the event, but by pre-planning and having a solid plan in place ahead of time, it was a relatively stress-free process.

I’m happy to report we are safe, didn’t experience any major damage and we’re back in the normal swing of things.

In today’s Podcast episode, I’ll detail the importance of having a disaster plan for not only yourself, your family, pets and your residence, but also for all aspects of your online business.

There will be lots of key takeaways and recommendations that you can and should take action on right away.

Quick Mention


I mentioned at the beginning of the episode that I received an email from Jessica Larrew this week stating that the Amazon Boot Camp v2.0 will be closing it’s doors this Thursday, October 20th, 2016.

This will be the last time you can get in on this self-guided video training course for the remainder of the year.

In 2017, she will be releasing the next version of her program, but she also mentioned that the price will be increasing.

In addition, her Private FB Group for the program, which is staffed by paid moderators and an essential piece of the puzzle, will become separate and you’ll have to purchase that at an additional cost.

So if you are at all interested in the idea of selling products on Amazon for some side, or even full time income, in the new year, you should check out the Amazon Boot Camp v2.0 now, before it closes for good.

I just wanted to quickly thank all the folks that reached out in the FB Mastermind group and those that reached out to me directly, to wish us well during the storm.

It means a lot and that sense of community is really what I enjoy most about creating content for you guys.

Hearing that what I’m doing is helping motivate you guys to achieve your goals, really provides that motivation for me to do my best work.

If you have any suggestions for content you would like to see on the site or hear on the Podcast, don’t hesitate to leave a comment or reach out at any time.

Thanks and I hope you have a fantastic and safe two weeks, until the next episode!
