Broken toes, product launch, amazing testimonial… oh my!

So I broke my toe over the weekend. I was running to meet my friend, tripped over one of the bricks covering my garden… and next thing I know… PLUNK! I come up with leaves all over my hair, bloody hands… and a broken toe.

I’ve always had a high tolerance for pain so I ignored it and went to my surprise for the night – dinner with some of my best friends, great concert tickets… and then I caught up with another friend after the show.

It was a great time!

So after that… partially because I’m stubborn and partially because I needed to dedicate time to my new product launch (Mafioso Marketing! It’s a great product that I highly recommend…. AND we’re having a JV contest where you can win $5k in cash and $5k in prizes! Contact me at rachelrofe at gmail.com if you’re interested)… I still haven’t gotten the toe checked out. I’ve been told you can’t really do anything for a broken toe anyway. :)

###

In other news, Brian and I were offering free sales letters for JV partners to get some quality mail-outs. To do so, we started collecting testimonials from past clients.

We got a ridiculous one from John Carlton!

“When I first met Brian and Rachel at my Copywriting Sweatshop seminar, I thought I’d have to rip their copy to shreds… and I did. But I also found two high-energy, creative copywriters with definite chops and solid marketing instincts, and they’re going to go far. For the right client – who is willing to overlook lack of experience in exchange for snagging a dedicated copywriting duo who are devoting themselves to learning the craft by studying and listening to veterans like me – this could be an opportunity to hire a two-for-one tsunami of blossoming talent and enthusiasm at a fraction of what they will soon be charging. They remind me of me when I first started out.

Are. You. Kidding. Me.??!@$%!$#@?

Alright… I’m off to go work on Mafioso. If you want it, you can get 25% off by entering coupon code “6BMB3Y7” (enter the Promo code after you get into the 2Checkout screen). :)

Home!

So I’m finally home…

And I miss California!

On the bright side, though…. being home has helped me catch up on a LOT of my projects.

And it was nice to see my family and some friends… (I’m going to see the rest on the 13th for some kind of surprise. Hmmm… I’m excited!)

Since I’ve been home, I’ve been trying my best to get out and do my work at a Starbucks or Barnes & Noble or something… just to avoid getting into my workaholic “sit-at-my-computer” mode.

It’s been pretty fun, actually. I get to eavesdrop in all sorts of conversations.

I watched two people on their first date the other day (they met online)… I heard a high powered attorney confide in someone about how he wants to divorce his wife… watched a father playing “I Spy” with his daughter…

I’m so freaking nosy. :)

In other news….

After receiving repeated emails about Jermaine Griggs’ Nitty Gritty Marketing launch, I finally decided to look inside.

(I had been ignoring all emails so that I could focus on work).

I probably should have looked sooner… because Brian went to Russell Brunson’s DotComSecrets event and raved and raved about Jermaine Griggs, and said that he was the only speaker to get a standing ovation.

Anyway… I went inside, and it looks really awesome. There’s a lot of value inside… and anyone who signs up as an affiliate now not only gets $50 commissions to the people that they refer… but they also get $17/month every time an affiliate that they referred makes a sale! How ridiculous is that!?

If you’re interested… sign up here.

If you have an IM list of over 50,000, please get in contact with me at rachelrofe at gmail.com. Brian and I have a huge launch coming up on October 16 (under a partner’s name)… and we’re offering free sales letters to anybody who will mail out for us. We have some amazing testimonials that we can furnish upon request. :)

We’ll also give you access to check out the product/sales letter, of course. This is a recurring income product. We tested it out on The Warrior Forum and sold over 250 copies… from one thread.

###

I guess that’s it for now! Need to work on this launch!

Having a blast…

I’m writing from Memphis, TN. My trip is almost over! :(

I could so do this for a few more months… but I have to be home by October 6 to meet with a partner for one of my membership sites. We’re going to a trade show to scoop up lots of leads.

Annnnyway, here’s what’s been happening:

###

Vegas was a great time! As I said, Jaime Mintun and Max came. They got along very well and we had a blast.

Not too many things to mention… just a few quick things (and not in order of importance)…

* I almost got married to Max (just as a random thing to do on my 25th birthday), but I found out that the annulment cost $800+. Rubbish!

* On the night of my birthday, a restaurant gave Jaime, Max, and I free wine and coconut cake in celebration. That was pretty awesome. :)

* Jaime and I have decided (for sure) that we’re traveling Europe. Soon. We’re going to go live in random cities and really just immerse ourselves in the culture of each place that we stay at. It’s going to be a-m-a-z-i-n-g. I can’t wait!

###

After Vegas, Max and I drove over to the Grand Canyon. It was BREATHTAKING. I’m so glad that we ended up going.

(I also saw my first coyote there!!)

###

From the Grand Canyon, we drove over to Amarillo, TX. The people in Texas were SO FRIENDLY!

###

Random note…

I find it absolutely hysterical that every time Max tells someone he’s from England, they immediately say, “Oh… from London?”

If they don’t ask that (or even if they do), they’ll ask him if he knows the Prince or the Queen.

And another random note… did you know that only 1 in every 5 Americans has a passport? Isn’t that crazy?

###

From Texas, we drove over to Little Rock for a night, and then Memphis.

I had been to Memphis once before, but it was on a weekday. We went to Beale Street last night, and it was SO COOL!

(Before we even got there, we asked some guy for directions, and he ended up just driving us the 1.5 miles or so to get there. I think it’s because everyone trusts Max because he has an English accent.)

Before entering Beale Street, you had to be carded. When we got in, there were hundreds and hundreds of people just dancing in the street with alcohol in their hand. There were fireworks going off… and the vibe was just incredible.

We had a really good time!

###

We’re going to go to Elvis’s house today, and then drive towards Washington D.C.

###

In other news, the weight loss site’s going amazing. Random things keep happening that are going to make it better and better (I just got an email from a HUGE guru that worked with one of my friends and they made $40k from an hour teleseminar…. he wants to promote my weight loss site!).

Brian and I are also working with J.D. Swanson to promote Mafioso Marketing, which has been working out incredibly as well. More on that later. :)

…Off to go get my first oil change of the trip!
