Pure Leverage Members Area And Why I Couldn’t Leave It Out Of The GVO Story Book

The GVO Story by Jean ShawEver since I mentioned Joel Therien was such a bother, people have been asking me,

… “Why?”

Well, the thing is I’ve written and published The GVO Story which is all about him, his company and the amazingly affordable products and services he offers to anyone wishing to have an online presence, regardless of where they live in the world.

Of course, they have to have an internet connection

… Duh!

Anyway, the book had everything in it, and I was happy.

Then he went and introduced Pure Leverage!

Naturally, I couldn’t leave that out, as not only does it provide affordable services, which can SAVE you MONEY if you need them,  but can also MAKE you MONEY  if you wish,  as it also provides a unique 100% commission  business opportunity to anyone interested in that form of marketing.

It’s not compulsory though.

You just choose the package that’s best for you, but obviously at the moment they’re heavily promoting the business opportunity, which I personally think might put a lot of people off as not everyone is a network or mlm marketer.

Indeed, just the mention of that type of opportunity makes a lot of people think of Pyramid Schemes and turns them off.

Anyway, incase you’re interested in just what you get for your money with Pure Leverage, here’s a look inside  the back office.


Now you see why I couldn’t leave it out of my book, don’t you?

Take care,


Dean Holland – Internet Profits – Is It The Answer To The Job Centre?

Dean HollandLike many countries, UK is currently going through a recession, and at the beginning of this year, a young lad I know very well lost his job.

It was a case of last in, first out, and he found himself at the Job Centre, where the staff were not particularly helpful.

Basically, you fill in a form and then go off and register on loads of job agency websites, apply for as many suitable jobs as you can in the hope you’ll eventually get an interview.

This proves you are actively seeking employment and therefore entitled to any money the Job Centre is able to give you to keep the wolves from the door.   It’s a soul destroying experience, but fortunately the young lad was able to find alternative employment within 5 weeks, albeit at a much lower salary than he’d previously been on.

However, he had to take it, because a) if he hadn’t his benefits would have stopped, b) he needed to pay the rent and c) it’s somehow easier to find employment when you’re already in work.

Now, about four weeks ago, a friend of the family found himself in similar circumstances in as much as he also lost his job.

This time, however, he wasn’t the last in.

Infact, he’d been in his job for over 20 years and had a managerial role.  He also had his petrol paid for, a mobile phone and private health cover, so it came as quite a shock to suddenly find, as the only bread winner in the family, he was “inbetween opportunities”, as they say.

Like the young lad, he’s been enduring the Job Centre, and finding it just as depressing.  He says, the staff there make you feel really guilty as if it’s your fault the whole country now has more people than suitable jobs.

They more or less tell you to take anything that’s available even if by doing so you wouldn’t be able to pay the mortgage, or feed and clothe your family.

Fortunately, at the moment he’s resilient and hasn’t yet been worn down by the process, but unquestionably he will struggle to find the type of job he wants and would be ideally suited for.


Well, firstly his age – he’s fifty(ish) and secondly, his education.  You see he didn’t go to university and his previous job didn’t require him to go on numerous courses to get bits of paper.

That means when he goes to fill in the application forms, there’s no-where to say, well actually I haven’t got those requirements, BUT I have got over thirty years experience in the school of life in the real world of work.

My point is, no matter how skilled, or dedicated you are to your JOB no-one is indispensible.

Many people have discovered that the hard way, and found they needed another way to either earn, or supplement their income, which is why many have turned to the internet. Indeed, many have found their fortune online, but there are many roads to travel and lots of pitfalls if you don’t know where to go and who to follow.

Dean Holland, found that out to his cost.  Well, at least, initially, but soon turned his life around and went from being over $60,000 in debt to living the life of his dreams, and he’s now teaching others to do the same.

The nice thing about how he’s doing it, is he’s not expecting anyone to spend a fortune, because he knows the majority of people just don’t have it.

His methods are proven to work, and are current, which is a good thing because we all know how quickly the internet changes.  Dean is a good instructor too.   He doesn’t make you feel as if you should know what he’s teaching, unlike some people who assume too much.

Anyway, if you want a free video to see if Dean could possibly help you get started online as a backup plan incase your employers decide they no longer need you in your Just Over Broke position, you might want to click on the link below and go here.

Dean Holland – Dare You Take His Quick Start Challenge?

Dean Holland's Quick Start ChallengeLike many people on line I have bought lots of courses for ALL sorts of things and am probably what’s known in UK as a Jack of all Trades – meaning I know a little about a lot.

One of the courses I was on was run by Alex Jeffreys, whom I’ve mentioned a few times on this blog, and I’ve interviewed him a couple of times. You can listen to them if you like over at

Anyway, one of his most well known students is Dean Holland, who was, I think, on the same course as I was.

Incase you haven’t heard of him, he famously went from over $60,000 in debt to selling over $1,000,000 online in just 3 years, which makes me wonder where I went wrong!

Dean is one of the good guys out there and doesn’t feed you a whole load of hype and false promises, but the reason I mention this is he’s just handed down the gauntlet and challenged people who either want to get started online, or speed up their progress to take his Quick Start Challenge.

So, what do you think?

Do you dare to take the QSC?

I won’t be taking it, although from the results already achieved by some of those who have, I probably should.

Instead, guess who I’ll be trying to get an interview with?

Pure Leverage – Shall I Give It A Year?

Pure_LeverageLast night I went to see the film, I Give It A Year.  It was brilliant – really funny.

It’s about the trials and tribulations of a pair of newlyweds during their first year as a married couple, and the language sometimes is unbelievable. How the actors and actresses managed to keep straight faces, I’ll never know. I won’t reveal the plot, but let’s just say it does have a happy ending.

Anyway, when I got home, I couldn’t sleep, so I did a bit of reading and realised if I hung on for a little while longer, I could listen to the Pure Leverage training webinar starring Daegan Smith.

I’ve heard his name often, as he’s quite a power house as far as list building  is concerned, but I’d never seen him, so I decided to tune in to see what he sounded and looked like.

That’s the thing with the Pure Leverage conference suite – you can see and hear the presenters – all at the same time too as you can drag the presenters into the middle of the screen!

Anyway, last night or rather this morning for me,  I watched and listened to Joel Therien, Mark Call and Daegan Smith explain how they had all started with nothing and worked their way up to the dizzy heights they now find themselves in.

They started off acknowledging each other, which I must admit, in the early hours of this morning I could have done without.  The mutual admiration society bit may have provided the necessary social proof and be well deserved, but sometimes, people would rather just have their time respected.

Just saying!

Still, I looked and listened as once again it was pointed out, IF you want to better yourself, you need to look at who you spend your time with.

It seems your life is directly affected by the five people you most associate with, so if you want to increase your financial status, you need to hang out with the people who have more than you do and know how to do it.

Mark Call certainly believes that.  I’ve known of him for a few years now and even met him a couple of years ago. I’ve watched as he’s risen up the ranks,  and last night he revealed how just five years ago he’d been through a messy divorce and had left the family home.  He’d lost everything other than the things  he took in the five boxes he’d placed in the back of his pick up truck.

He’s certainly made up for it since, and attributes that on the positive guidance and influence of Joel and Daegan.

Of course, a lot of hard work has gone into it too, but their message is you have to give in order to receive.

Some people claim you have to be rich before you can give, but historically, the people we perceive to be really wealthy, actually gave generously before they became rich.

It’s the same with anything else in life, whether that be relationships, health, fitness, religion.  If you want to get better at something, hang around with those who can do it, and have what you want.

If you can’t do it in person, read their books, listen to their audios, watch the videos or get involved in the online webinars.

If you want life to change, YOU must change.

All three presenters prove anything is possible if you put your mind to it and focus, and all three agree Pure Leverage is a fantastic tool to focus on.

It changes lives.

Admittedly, Pure Leverage is a new opportunity, but it’s based on solid foundations, and proven systems.

I’ve met Joel Therien the CEO of the company, and written two books about him; The GVO Story and The 7MinuteWorkout Story, so I guess you can say I’ve been hanging around him for some time.

I’ve never met Daegan Smith, but as the webinar last night was recorded for the VIP members of Pure Leverage, no doubt I’ll be watching him again.

Apparently, they’ve got many more guest presenters lined up in the future, so  with all those very rich, successful and influential people waiting in the training section with great advice

Pure Leverage – Why It’s Equivalent To Shovels In The Californian Gold Rush!

Pure_Leverage -100%_CommissionToday is my birthday!

It’s also the anniversary of when I first discovered the internet as a vehicle for making money.  The problem is, as you probably already know, there are literally hundreds of money making avenues to follow.

It’s a confusing landscape and taking a few unnecessary detours can cost you dearly.

Your internet adventure can soon turn into a financial nightmare, but who can you trust?

There are many good guys and girls out there; offering great products and advice, and it’s not for me to judge.  Obviously, I have my own opinions, but no matter whom you follow or what you do on the internet, you will need certain tools.

Remember, the days of the Californian gold rush?

No, I don’t either because I’m not that old, BUT the people who got really rich in those days weren’t necessary those panning for gold, but the people selling the tools for them to do it.

Anyone selling shovels, sieves and buckets had a unique selling proposition.

It makes sense.

Fast forward several years and the people making the consistent money in the virtual internet gold rush are the people selling the tools.

Products come and products go, but tools go on forever!

Anyone selling blogs, websites, auto responders, audio and video facilities, conferencing rooms, lead capture systems, marketing training, etc., certainly has a unique selling proposition.

It makes sense.

Now, just imagine if one company could provide ALL those services from ONE location at a really AFFORDABLE price with ONE set of LOG-IN details, and…

…provide a 100% commission compensation plan which pays you to promote the products you use…

… for ever!

Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it, but that’s what Pure Leverage offers.

Joel_TherienSo, can you trust them?

Well, here’s my take on it in case you’re interested.

Pure Leverage is run by Joel Therien.  I’ve met him, interviewed him, written two books about him, written copy for him and always found him to be ethical, open and transparent.

He is, in my opinion, one of the good guys, and I am part of his GVO and 7MinuteWorkout communities, both made up of “real” people from all corners of the globe.

Joel is all about lifestyle, and whilst he does have lots of those essential “boys toys” to prove he’s a success,  Joel is essentially a dedicated family man, not just towards his own family but to his “extended” family communities.

Several years ago as a result of ill health, Joel had a vision.

He determined to make the internet a level playing field and provide affordable essential online marketing tools and services to everyone with an internet connection, no matter where they lived in the world.

Joel achieved that in the internet marketing world with GVO – Global Virtual Opportunities, and in the health and fitness world with the 7MinuteWorkout program.

However, his vision grew.

He listened and learned, and realised some people have poured their heart and soul into this internet “thing” and yet still never made a penny.

He had, and not just from providing online marketing tools and services, but from affiliate internet marketing and network marketing of high value non- physical  products, which could be delivered online and didn’t require expensive shipping.

That’s when he asked, “What if….?”

What if he combined all his tools and services with the combined knowledge of both his and other “do-ru” success stories? He’d met a lot over the years, all experts in various different marketing strategies, and  who actually made money from the actions they took.

Joel already had all the tools and services with GVO and they’d been proven to be just as robust, and much cheaper than any of his competitors. That’s why hugely successful internet and network marketers use them all the time, so why not combine these tools and services with marketing know-how and  turn them into a commission based home business opportunity?

After all, the tools and services are equivalent to the shovels and sieves of the Californian gold rush, and the knowledge and training equivalent to having a map to know exactly where to look!

Hence, Pure Leverage was born.

It is a unique business opportunity providing a 100% commission payout, and it doesn’t restrict network marketers to promoting only the Pure Leverage products either.  Instead it enables you to enhance, rather than compete, with whatever other lines or products you choose to promote.

There is a basic monthly package of $24.95 which includes –

•           A fully installed authority blog
•           A full auto responder service
•           A fully hosted 100 seat webinar conference suite
•           Video e-mail software
•           Video hosting and streaming
•           Turn key (Pure Leverage) lead capture pages
•           Turn key (customizable) lead pages

and much more.

There is also the second tier monthly VIP package of $97, which includes PLR (private label rights) materials and top quality expert internet and marketing training, to help members grow and form a relationship with that all important “list”.

You can just use the basic tools and services for yourself and even if you do just that, you’ll save yourself a fortune on comparable tools, services and training, BUT for an additional reseller fee of $19.97 per month you can promote the products. This covers the cost of the infrastructure to run the backend, the support system and access to the merchant account facilities.

The way the compensation plan works for resellers is you can receive commission on any sales of the products you own from personally introduced members in your downline.

I emphasise the YOU OWN bit, because there will be various upgrades within the company and unless you actually own them and use them, it would be very unethical to promote them, wouldn’t it?

So many times marketers promote things they’ve never seen or owned, or authors claim to be experts in a whole variety of fields about which they know little or nothing about. Whenever someone purchases the product through your direct recommendation, you receive 100% commission on the sale for the first month.

On the second month, you receive 50% commission on that sale, and 50% commission on the sales of your directly recommended downline, but only for the products you personally own.

Matching checks for any product sales in the direct downline pass upwards for ever, BUT if you don’t own the product then commissions’ jump over you to the next person who does.

Significantly, even if you change your mind at a later date, you can’t benefit from the sales of those who signed up under you for upgrades before you did.

It’s a fair system and Pure Leverage is destined to change lives.

It simply can’t fail…

…it’s the equivalent of shovels in the Californian gold rush!
