It’s been a long time since I sent you a live broadcast email—too long.
Things have been crazy, but in a good way. I’ve been on the road the last 2 weeks. First stop was New York, and then to Las Vegas for the Super Charge Summit.
From there I went down to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where I stayed at the Sheraton Hacienda.
This is one of my favorite resorts (easily a top 3), and the location of the very first Titanium Mastermind I ever did back in September, 2013.
I wasn’t there for a holiday though; I was there to get design ideas for the new MOBE resort.
After more than 18 months of searching and trying to put deals together, we finally got our first resort, and it’s in Costa Rica. Right now there’s 37 rooms, but plenty of room to add more on the 8 acres of beach front property.
I’m here right now in fact, filming some videos to share with you.
Expect to see them soon. One of them is a ‘before and after’ style video where I’ll show you the condition the resorts currently in (right now it wouldn’t qualify for One Star).
Then in about 5 months, I’ll shoot the ‘after’ video where it will be transformed into a Five Star resort.
I’m recording a lot of videos showing all of this on Snapchat—if you want to watch from your phone, just get Snapchat then add me as a contact. My username is ‘mattlloydmobe’ (send me a personal message too if you like, and I’ll reply)
If you’re wondering why I bought a resort, I’ll tell you; to save money.
Over the last 3 years, MOBE has hosted about 16 international masterminds at 4 and 5 star resorts all around the world. We’ve done them in places like Fiji, the Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Bali, Thailand, Curacao, Canary Islands … and some other countries I can’t remember right now.
And we have spent millions and millions of dollars on these events. They are not cheap, that’s for sure.
In order for us to continue to grow as a company, I wanted to get our own resort where we could cut our costs by at least 40%, and also provide a better experience to our attendees.
Now we can film our events without interruption. We can have whatever meals we want. We don’t have to worry about noise complaints. We don’t have to deal with outside AV companys.
We’ll control all the variables, and can dedicate the entire resort to functioning around our masterminds.
From March 2017 onwards, we’re going to be host the majority of our masterminds here.
From our Titanium Mastermind, which is all about scaling your business through ever increasing revenue levels …
To the Platinum Mastermind, which is all about investing your business’s profit into other asset classes, like Real Estate, precious metals, stocks, etc …
To the Diamond Mastermind, which is all about exit strategy (selling your business for a big pay day), to also starting your own information marketing company in your niche.
I’m working on getting a similar sized resort in either Thailand or Fiji, so we can have a place to do our masterminds on each side of the world for our clients.
I’ll tell you why this is important. For someone in Australia to get to Costa Rica, they can be traveling for up to 45 hours! (I know this from personal experience).
And for someone from the USA, getting to a place like Thailand can easily take 25 hours.
So with 2 resorts, no one will have to travel too far. At most, it might be 15 hours of travel time.
That’s still a long time, but much more bearable than 45 hours.
While I’m here in Costa Rica, I’m also exploring all the activities we can do with our guests to create an experience they’ll never forget.
From horse-riding through the forests and along the beaches … to cruising up and down the hills on ATV 4 wheelers, to exploring waterfalls.
And of course, zip-lining above the forests.
This will all be available to you when you come to a MOBE mastermind here.
Meanwhile on the other side of the world, exciting things are happening at the MOBE head quarters in Asia.
Construction is well underway at our new Penthouse office, which is right in the middle of the Kuala Lumpur City Center.
We’re trying to create a really nice office that will help us attract world class talent, so we have a new 6,000 square foot space we are taking over, with incredible views.
Each day I’m getting sent photo updates on the renovations. Right now they’re ripping up all concrete floors, getting ready for the new concrete / wood flooring we’ll be putting in.
And also exposing all the ceilings too, which we’ll then paint for a more raw industrial kind of design.
So there’s a lot going on.
Why am I sharing all of this with you though? How does any of this benefit you?
Well to be honest a big reason is I’m just excited to see all these projects come to life, and wanted to tell someone.
But even more than that, I want to help you see what’s possible for YOU.
See, just a few short years ago many of these things would not have seemed possible.
I’d always wanted to be able to travel the world, to be able to invest in real estate, to create …
But I did not have the means to do any of that. Paying my rent and making ends meet was hard enough.
But through getting involved in internet marketing that fateful day in late 2008, it’s opened up a world of possibilities for me.
For you to do the same, it takes the following:
- A high converting sales funnel you can promote online (like this one here).
- You driving quality and quantity of clicks to that high converting sales funnel.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to you getting enough of the right people to click your affiliate link for a sales funnel.
And as you hone your skills, you learn how to help influence someone to take action (to buy) before they click that link.
This can be through having a video that sets up the sales funnel … writing a blog post … writing a personal story based email like this one here. It could be a 10 second video Snapchat video. Or a photo with a caption on Instagram.
But fundamentally it’s about getting an audience in front of an offer.
Learn how to do that with scale, and you’ll be able to live out many of your dreams and not have to worry about money ever again.
But remember; none of this happens unless you make it happen. Take aggressive, impatient action right away, and don’t stop. It may take longer than you’d like, but it will all be worth it in the end.
