My Own Example

Sign the check underneath the printed name. Since you were the check's original payee, you still have to sign it. As with restrictive endorsements, endorse underneath your transfer instructions to give those instructions legal effect.

If possible, leave room for any restrictive endorsements or other information they may want to add. Give the person the check. At this point, the processing of the check becomes the responsibility of the person you've signed it over to.

You may also have to go to the bank with the person, especially if the check is for a large amount.

The revelation has been, and continues to be astonishing! I am beginning to make some pretty drastic changes in my life that will allow me to live the life that I was created to live…and consequently, become the answer to the prayers I was sent to answer.

My apologies for rambling, but this movement is something that I am incredibly passionate about! I absolutely hate it when I see people settling into lives that will never satisfy or inspire. Thank You for all you do…. Thank you so much for your comment! We were each created for something and, when we live that out on a daily basis, we are blessed with the joy and satisfaction that comes from living a life of significance rather than chasing comfort.

If you have any thoughts about how we might work together, feel free to shoot me an email. God bless you too! The same concept, giving away your dreams- is one of the things I used to try to pound into my students brains sometimes- stoned students, hence the pounding.

I taught for a year in an alternative program. I loved the kids and the idea. I hate schools as much as an educator, as I did when I was a student. But that is a different story. They would sit around being stoned, imagining all sorts of fantastic events and lives for themselves.

But that ultimately, they were smoking their dreams and destroying their potential and handing their future into the hands that dealt them their drugs.

And the person who sells them the drugs HAS that boat. But the idea is the same- about giving away our dreams and our Power, choosing to be sheep, and looking for the escape from the guilt-hangover. It is quite sad that so many people have lost their belief in their own power and potential.

I am just starting down this road. So now I am entering the speaking phase of my career to try and motivate and coach. I find that seeing others succeed is what truly brings happiness into my life. If I can be a part of that, I would be happy. Thanks so much for sharing! Congrats on your career change and for having the courage to change direction after 20 years. Love this post and thank your wife for leading me here by following me on Twitter!

A year ago I would have probably ignored this post. Yet a lot can change in one year and although I am still doing the same job and I am loving it, my attitude has changed. I realized that working for a big corporate organization the relationship between corporate and me was totally unbalanced: And that hit me when they changed the deal we made 2 years ago. And all I could do was take it, or leave. Which was good because all of this forced me to take full responsibility and ask myself the question what I could do to make our relationship one of equals.

And that has led to a number of things which are way too many to discuss here. And I am looking forward to more crossings in the future! One question I have though is whether you work with specific organizations who are open to listening to your story?

Thank you so much for dropping by! Truly appreciate you checking out the site and leaving a comment. In answer to your question, I definitely work with organizations on this stuff.

It all depends on the needs of the company. Please shoot me an email to travis [at] travisrobertson. Im still deciding if I will try to build an audience for that particular niche first. I think after reading this article I will! I found your article information and timely.

This is my first visit to your blog and I will subscribe to future updates. I found the length of the article abnormally long but I appreciated it because you covered the necessary content. I am going to revisit my current project and take your advice into consideration. Congratulations on the success, I look forward to future posts about your progress.

Glen, that is not a complaint. It gives me hope. I find myself NOT blogging because I hate cutting my word count. Thanks so much for this post Glen! Did you give away many free copies to other bloggers in exchange for reviews? Or were all your sales basically from your site alone? I think I gave out about 5 free copies and the rest were reviews from people who bought it first.

Thanks I needed this information. I charge extra for the physical copies. What are your thoughts Glen? As I build my readership, I have been thinking about writing an ebook.

At first, I was overwhelmed at the idea, thinking about all the factors that go into writing, designing, publishing it, and marketing it. So easy to follow and understand, as usual. Great Post, Glen as always! I know I need to spread the word more widely…. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem, because some sites like Squidoo that I want to make use of, only use PayPal!? Keep up the good work! What an awesome post.

This was exactly what I needed. What a great article. Proofreading should be done tomorrow. Your passion for helping people really shines through. I think Eckert Tolle would be proud. I love writing ebooks. I have written about 10 in the last decade. Some were great some not so great. I still make money to this day from an ebook I wrote 6 years ago with revisions.

All I do is try to come up with the next greatest ebook. Some people try to come up with the next best phone app, I do that with ebooks. Just finished my latest one February It is a book about where you can still find places with no building codes in the United States. Why did I write it? Because there was no book like it in existence—which was the impetus to write it. I got any agitated e-mail from a customer the other day that was upset that I was switching to ebooks from physical books — seems a lot of people still have a strong almost emotional attachment to physical books.

Glen, This is an excellent article. Wow, I definitely learned a lot here. Just a quick question. When you wrote cloud living, you must have had an idea that it would be replicated in some way. I say this because of the size of the audience you are able to communicate with, through not only this blog but guest posts and so on. I was wondering if you bought any domain names to protect the brand and your investment?

I see the domain http: Thank you for this useful post. I am nearing the completion of a book that will change the world and am considering a multitude of ways to market and produce this book.

Your information is gold! Thank you for your kindness and sharing spirit. Thanks for the well-written article Glen. Just what i needed. I just found your blog today and i want to tell you that your articles are fantastic, especially this one, which comes right on time, because i am about to write my on ebook.

Hey Glen, thanks again for writing this very useful post. I will definitely heed your advice before issuing an eBook to sell. I am going to launch an e-book in a week. I have two important questions I would love to know the answer to. One on the value of social media followers the other is about the value of AdWords advertising: I have over a thousand on Twitter, and 60 on Facebook.

Are these followers a decent replacement for my blog followers? Is this any good for selling the e-book in your experience? Hope you can answer this, I would be thrilled if you can! Adding more pages and lots of filler to make your book appear great will bring you more returns than sales.

Thanks so much for your post. I am so very happy to have found your website and I find it very inspiring just to read other peoples post, in a way it has helped me stay motivated. I practice an ancient form of medicine and I am really thrilled to create an eBook so that I can bring that information to a larger audience. Thanks for the inspiration! Thanks for the explicit info.

Glen, first, always a pleasure to learn from your posts! Could any of this be applied to affiliate mini sites pages? Secondly, would you use your check list in cloud for maintainence of affiliate sites, or would that only apply to blogging? Hi, Nice ebook guide, enjoyed it. As Eben says, the amount you earn is in direct proportion to the value the customer thinks the product has.

I really enjoyed your information as it is hard to find legit advice online. I am a single mom and my current situation has inspired me to want to help others. What are some good resources for proofreading and ecovers without spending alot of money and someone stealing an idea? Thanks for giving us some honest recommendations on this topic. I have sought out a good variety of good information about natural health and some unreliable recommendations.

Do you have any more good recommendations or places on the Internet that I can find more detailed ideas? This would be much appreciated! So, keep up the good work! However, starting out with a small list that may not be an option. The mail form is from aWeber, probably the best email — list service out there.

I continue to be blown away by this website and your content. Trouble with your content and your readers is that after reading your post, I have to read all the comments as there are so many really good people just wanting to get going and who have great comments too. How do you prevent people from illegally replicating your eBook which deprives you of all of the income you deserve?

Do you have any insight on how much traffic is enough to produce decent sales on an e-book? Hi TJ… Have you considered self publishing? I did a kindle book on Amazon, Kindle Books sell at rate of to every ordinary books and then found out about Smashwords…a better free publishing platform.

They distribute yr book everywhere! I think I just want to time the release right. Thanks for the tip on Smashwords. Great article Glen — have been considering writing an e-book on recipes as I run a restaurant in Ireland and would love to have a go at compiling an online publication and see how it goes.

I have been blogging for a year now and now on to my 2nd blog. I have an ebook in the works and this guide offered me some valuable information. Hi Glen, I found your tips on ebooks to be really inspiring — I had one on the back burner and after reading this post today I actually went and purchased a great domain name. Just gotta write it now!!

Also, an acquaintance of mine uses ClickBank here in Australia, and says they are good. Wow, Glenn, I am very impressed with your article as well as the blog. You make it sound so easy: D but actually, it takes me days to write a page PDF… how can I write a whole book in this rhythm?: Wow, this is the best information that I have seen in a long time that is free.

I have to always give you 2 thumbs up because you post really good information that is complete. I was thinking about writing an ebook because I heard how much better it is to have a least one product that is your own. Your post just motivated me more to get this done. How did you protect your ebook? I have recently downloaded OpenOffice since I researched online and came to similar conclusion as you that it is the best PDF link conversion tool out there in the market. Also, I hope to signup for ClickBank and see how things goes with my near future eBook projects.

My niche is somewhat complex. A bit of personal development, a bit of theology, a bit of technology etc. I am enjoying riding in your train so far. Hey glen, As a budding entrepreneur, I have enjoyed your blog for sometime now. In general, what percentage of the audience will purchase the eBook? Very good post with valuable information!

I am very new to the online business and blogging. There are only few blogs that provide valuable information to the newbies, often leaving the key information or being downright bizarre. A question though, what is often a good way to check which topics for ebooks sell?

I know for me I have had a bazillion ideas for eBooks over the years, but my problem comes down to focus. I always get distracted by something else that seems like a better idea. To get started I usually bust out Google Docs and create Chapter headings, from there I add a number of points and ideas for each chapter, then I turn those into sub headings and create more points.

This is where I usually lose interest. IF I were to continue I would then start turning those points into cohesive paragraphs and go from there. Maybe one day I will finish an eBook. I did it once and made almost 5K from it, but really I think that was just pure luck. I recently just started writing for me blog after a two year break and think that I will come up with some ideas, start working on the draft version of a few eBooks and then release it once I have built up a bit of a following on my blog.

Always coming up with great information once can readily buy outside. My question is this, what if the niche is something you do not have an idea on, you hire someone to do the writing of the e-book and sales letter.

The one set-up a squeeze page to capture mails, how long shouuld the interaction with the list go before the e-book is been presented for sale? Thanks a lot Glen. It has definitely changed mine. Thank you for sharing all your resources! I am getting ready to complete my first ebook and am excited about the launch! I want to create an Ebook for vegans I have lots of ideas but not sure which would sell the best..

Hi, I really enjoyed reading your post. I am just starting out and have just got my website up with wordpress. I am looking at writing my first free ebook. Cheers ps my first ebook will be on Feng Shui for Newbies.

Thank you so much for such a great step by step article. I have reversed a disease over time that has never been done by mankind to my knowledge. As far as Google is concerned, there has never been a recorded case. I have given my time free for years as a Holistic Health Practitioner for those that need help and could not afford it. Today, I would like to share my miracle of faith and individual hard work for hope when all else fails.

Is there a market for that without having a current blog or following? How do I start? I am currently working on my first travel e-book. Thank you for sharing the tips that would help me make it a success.

Great article and good advice; especially the last part on knowing how to price your product. I find this very useful information because I am at this very stage now that I have also launched my first audio-book. The first bunch of replies to this article are obviously written by the author. Jan 19th at I learned nothing, and since he is faking his audience, it shows his over inflated sense of self importance.

Yes, but building an audience is a real hard way to go. So, Affiliates may be the best way to go if you want to see your sales increasing. This is much appreciated! Great story i have a question i am not a good writer and also not fluent with English is it a good idea to hire some one and also any recommendation. A lot of just great advice in this post, but weirdly enough, what stood out the most for me in this post is that I need to build my audience. I need to start promoting and working on S.
