I Am Not Psychic – Repeat I Am Not Pshycic – Repeat – Well Maybe

Do you remember any of the predictions made for 2007?  I made it a point to track what I said on December 30, 2006 . For the record the December 30th post is published and I am repeating it below along with the first report on what actually is happening now vs. what was predicted.(2008 predictions will be published on December 29th. There will be some astonishing forecasts and if you pay close attention, prosperity will be yours in the next 12 months.)
 
Summary: the most obvious prediction that came to be true was Frank Kern’s hair – there simply was no doubt it then or now. Let’s look at what was said on December 30th 2006 and how it turned out!

Dan Kennedy and Bill Glazer will send out a big box next year to their customers wishing them the very best Christmas ever. In the box will be at least 10 opportunities to spend money on one or more of their in-house study programs or seminars. Read the Christmas card first of course. (Did you receive one of their cards in 2006. Was it just me thinking their mailing was tacky at best? ) Do not ignore Dan and Bill’s training unless you are netting more than $10 million a year from continuity programs. 
12-07 Update: 100% accurate (I received mine – did you?)

John Reese says that long sales letters are on the decline and using a combination of Camtasia, live video clips and sales copy on your sales page will be most effective. John is right. Actually John is nearly always right and will continue to be so in 2007. Why is that? He tests and validates before he opens his mouth. If you don’t read his monthly report you are not serious about making money on line. (Frank Kern is nearly always right even with blonde hair.)

The gap between those building wealth and those not increasing net worth will widen in 2007.

12-07 Update: 110% accurate Those not building wealth will blame those who do with even louder voices and will want the government to step in. Those building wealth want the reinforcement of our country’s constitutional principles which basically says we have the right to build our business and build wealth and who we help is our choice not a government mandate. People still don’t get the fact that jobs are created and more money flows into the federal and state tax accounts when we let people who know how to build business do just that. The number of those not getting this point will continue to increase in 2007.
 

Portal Feeder will win the Grammy for the longest running program to have people pay for the development of a new version that should have been offered when the original version was offered but was not, and still is not over a year later. The Grammy will be awarded for best supporting actors in a major film that has not been released. By the way – I love the PF team.

12-07 Update: 210% accurate. Portal Feeder not only one the award but released a sequal that is awesome.

If 2007 is a great New Year for you it is because you have accepted the responsibility to make that happen and not because me or anyone else says Happy New Year to you.

Be well and prosper,
