Dear Entrepreneur:

Record numbers are turning to the internet to build businesses or to expand an offline business.  But for every entrepreneur that succeeds online, there are hundreds of thousands that don't make it. 

If you've been online for more than a day, you've probably heard countless so-called "Guru's" screaming things like "The Money's in the List!", "Anybody can make 7-figures online!", and even "You can make $1,000,000+ in your SLEEP (or at your kitchen table sitting in your underwear).

If you've tried any of the video courses, membership sites, ebooks, and other information products even once, you've probably already realized how NOT true these statements really are.

Reality looks a LOT more like...

You put up websites, only to find that no one ever finds them.
You create an ebooks and pour your heart and sould into it, agonizing over every word for months and months -- only to find that not a soul ever reads your words because no one ever finds your website!
You  hear that the money is in the list, but no one ever signs up for newsletter, your free report, or your free membership!
You're told that you can make millions online overnight, but months after you got started online, you still haven't been able to put even $10 into your bank account consistently every day for a week!

If you've been felling like having a successful business is just a hopeless dream, then this will probably be THE most important message you'll ever reader!

Let me introduce myself...

I am Gina Gaudio-Graves, the Dean & Founder of DirectionsU where we help entrepreneurs get direction for their life & business, we show them how to give direction to their prospects and customers, and in the end, guide them to impact the direction of the world!

The "What If's" above are all examples of the kinds of stories that I hear from Students every day of every week.

As our graduates know, though, it is NOT hopeless at all!  In fact, anyone can build a successful business online!  All it takes is two things ...

KEY INGREDIENT #1:  A Strategic Action Plan!

KEY INGREDIENT #2:  Action!  Not just any action, though.  But -- the RIGHT ACTION!

When you have these two KEY ingredients, EVERY business will be successful online!

If you've been online for more than a day, you've probably already picked up tons of info products that teach you things like ...

  • How to Build a List

  • How to Drive Traffic to Your Site

  • How to Set Up a Blog

  • How to Create Your Own Info Products

  • How to Turn PLR Products Into Hot Selling Info Products of Your Own

  • How to Make Money in Affiliate Marketing, Selling Other People's Products

  • How to Use Joint Ventures to Make More Money

Perhaps you've even tried some of the strategies that you've learned in these products.  But most likely, you're still sitting there with an empty bank account.

Does this sound like you?

Don't be discouraged -- it's not your fault!

I blame it on the info product creators themselves.  They've set you up for failure in a big way!

You see, what you've got from all of these products is the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle.  You're sitting there right now with all of the pieces you need to assemble the puzzle completely.  BUT -- you're still missing one huge ingredient ...

What you're missing is the puzzle box!

If you've ever tried to put a puzzle together without looking at the picture you know just how hard this can be.  Can you put the puzzle together without the puzzle box?

Maybe.  But it's going to take you a LOT longer and you're going to get a LOT more gray hair in the process, right?

And if it's one of those ultra-complicated puzzles with 1,000 pieces or more, you'll probably be sitting there next year at this same time with only a small portion of the puzzle assembled.

That's the same thing that's happening to you right now in trying to build your business ...

You're trying to assemble an ultra-complicated jigsaw puzzle that contains 1,000 pieces without having a picture to look at to help guide you!

That's where the DirectionsU Associate Membership comes in ...

It's the puzzle box that you need to build your business!  And, it even includes ALL the Puzzle Pieces as well!

You see, the jigsaw puzzle called "Your Business" really has 5 main pieces in it and a few additional pieces.  The 5 main pieces are each one of the 5 core systems that EVERY business needs.  They are:

  • The Mindset System - This means having a positive mental attitude.  Coming from a place of abundance instead of scarcity.  It also means having a VERY detailed, crystal clear picture of where you want your life and business to be 1 to 3 years from now or 3 to 5 years from now.  Without the right Mindset,  you can do everything else perfectly in your business and still get no results.  But get the Mindset piece right and even if you mess up on everything else you can still get HUGE results!

  • The Relationship Building System - Tthis means using WordPress to build your site so that you can have a conversation with people instead of talking at them and then tying your website to ALL your social media presences where your prospects are already hanging out.

  • The Monetization System - Online, people aren't searching for "stuff" to buy.  They're looking for strangers with experience who can help them solve their problems.  That means that they really want is INFORMATION.  To you that means using Information Products to generate leads (new customers) so that you can then get them to buy ANYTHING else you'd like -- whether that's more information, physical products, memberships, services, affiliate products, etc.

  • The Leveraging System -- Leverage means getting bigger results with less effort in a shorter amount of time.  In your business, "Leverage" comes from using Joint Ventures and Strategic Alliances to get EVERY asset your business needs including products to sell, people to sell them to, traffic to a website, a list of buyers and subscribers.

  • The Traffic & Lead Generation System -- Once you have the first 4 core systems, then everything is about driving more people to your website, getting them onto your list, and then turning them into loyal customers who not only buy over and over again but who also can't help but tell EVERYONE they know about you.  (These people are called "Raving Evangelists".)

In addition to these 5 Core Systems that EVERY business needs in order to be successful, you're going to need just a few more pieces before you can even attempt to put your jigsaw puzzle called "Your Business" together.  These are:

  • Copywriting System - Understanding how people buy and why people buy is critical!  And once you understand what makes people buy and why, having a system that you can use to create your message that ultimately sells your product or gets people to take some action is pretty easy!  CopyWRITING means much more than written words on a page.  It includes videos (after all, the script is simply an example of COPY), oral messages like those in a webinar, and anything else that conveys a message that gets people to take an action.

  • The "Triple Power Play" System - This system incorporates Video Marketing with Webinars and Podcasting to create a truly viral MACHINE that can not just send your hit counters soaring but can also kick-start a relationship that will product life long customers!

Within these 7 "systems" are ALL of the components that together create a VERY successful business! 

Unfortunately, most information products at best give you one of these pieces.  Some don't even give you an entire piece but just one little tiny corner of it.  No wonder why you're not having any success in your business, right?

What if you could find a way to not only get ALL 7 pieces of Your Business's Jigsaw Puzzle PLUS the Puzzle Box PLUS Help Putting Your Puzzle Together?

How much FASTER would you reach the levels of success you want in your business?

How much EASIER would it be to put your business together and get it making your dreams come true?

  2. "Finding Your Greatest Potential" Report - this goal setting report will help you assess your passions and determine what it is that you really want in both life and business.  Without knowing what it is that you really want, you can't move forward in building a plan that will get you there.  (Freshly updated just a few weeks ago!)

  3. Entrepreneurial Four Leaf Clover - what kind of business will you build?  Who will you target?  In other words -- what niche will you be in?  It's important that you build your business around your passions.  Otherwise you won't have the expertise to be successful and others won't perceive you as an influencer or an expert.  Use this chart to help you determine what your potentially profitable passions really are.

  4. Profit Funnel Flowchart -- follow along with the Profit Funnel Flowchart so that you can build this same system into your own business

  5. Traffic Sources Worksheet -- use this Excel Spreadsheet to figure out exactly how many visitors you need to reach your sales goal and put together a plan that will help you get there every time
