Hello Everyone, Michael The Traveling Trucker says” Be You”.
I had this conversation with my oldest daughter, Tori. She said she loved my Michael The Traveling Trucker and gave me some tips about Tik Tok. I have watched her videos and loved them, so I asked for her advise.
That’s right, There is only one of YOU. I know, you say, I don’t like me or why would people choose to talk to me.
We all have had this talk with ourselves. If you don’t like something about yourself, take 30 days and change it.
You were born as a unique person, there is no other person in this world who is exactly like you. This is also true when it comes to your personality. It is unique for a reason.
That is why it is so important to always be yourself.
Tell me one thing you like about yourself? I’ll go 1st. I have NEVER met a stranger. I talk to anyone anytime about any topic we choose.
I believe in you. You are here for a reason, so let’s explore the why.
Are you a care giver, love animals, good listener, organized, artistic, good at writing, natural leader? Whatever it is, use it. That’s why you have it.
Do you know who you really are? Ever since you were young, you have been conditioned to be one way or another. It may be weird just to spend a day being your spontaneous self, but sometimes it is the only way that you can learn how to be yourself.
Do you look at everything as a glass half full or a glass half empty? It can be easy to be negative about yourself. When it comes to being happy, it is vital that you learn how to be yourself and to be more positive.
Mistakes in your life do not always need to be seen negatively. Think about what went wrong, learn from it, and move on. This one right here is one of the MOST IMPORTANT steps—-LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES AND DON’T REPEAT THEM.
If you need help ASK. People love to be needed. Most of the people I have met are ALWAYS willing to help when asked. I need help all the time and I ask. It helps me grow when taught what I’m missing.
We all need help from time to time and we all can help someone else from time to time.
Best statement ever: A Blessing Is Not A blessing Until You Give It Away.
Sounds simple doesn’t it? Michael The Traveling Trucker has reason to think outside the box. Training is essential to any business, personal or faimly if we are to move forward and not remain in the rut of ho hum life.
Before we learn how it’s important, we need to learn why it’s important. Thinking fast provides a wide variety of benefits.
When people are asked to think fast, they are happier, more creative, energetic, and self-confident. Does that begin to sound like you? That’s right, it is becoming you as we speak.
Faster thinking will also keep your brain mentally sharp.
Do you know that it’s possible to become smarter—at any age? That’s right. Are You READY?
How Do You Think Faster?
The next question is how does one increase speed? That answer is:
Make faster minor decisions. Now eating is important, but deciding between beef, turkey or salad is inconsequential. Deciding quickly what to eat can help you with thinking faster.
There are things that we do all the time and we’ve gotten really good at — playing music, learning songs, writing, or doing specific stretches. Whatever the case, I encourage you to add another layer of challenge to those skills by speeding up.
Think Smarter: Critical Thinking to Improve Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Skills is the comprehensive guide to training your brain to do more for you.
Thinking is the foundation of everything you do, but we rely largely on automatic thinking to process information, often resulting in misunderstandings and errors.
READ BOOKS AND LOTS OF THEM DAILY
If you are not using your whole brain, you will fall behind.
Trial and error is a fundamental method of problem-solving. It is characterized by repeated, varied attempts which are continued until success, or until the agent stops trying.
The earlier in life a person learns to read and the more readingmaterials they are subjected to, the more cognitive skills they will develop.
For those who have limited reading comprehension skills, reading can help enhance their vocabulary and their development of intellectual functioning.
When we were growing with our 2 girls, teaching, showing and sharing books, we would read out loud. Everyone would take a turn. We would do voices, singing the songs. We would go to the library and let them pick out books. Today our girls love to read as My wife and I do.
We still do the voices and sing the songs, then laugh about it. It is a magicial time. Reading stimulates your brain and keeps it healthy, which is critical for your memory.

HEADLINES: You can have the best content, the best news for doing things, and the best news for making money, but if people don’t open your email or read your blog, you don’t have them. This should be a PRIORITY for your blogs and emails.
Keeping your emails short and sweet is very important when you are email marketing.
You want to make sure you get your point across as quickly as you can without leaving out any important details about the product you are promoting or the message you are trying to get across.
It is very important that you make sure that the marketing experience is as convenient as possible for the customer because this will surely lead to more sales.
Here are a few Headlines that caught my attention:
Learn how to make money online as an affiliate, Claim Your Free Traffic Package Worth 5To 20 Every Day, Get Paid To Log In Every Day!, New System Pays youmultiple timesPer day on autopilot!, $1,000IN MAILBOXCASH ,2k with New system.
Are you starting to let those juices flow?
SOCIAL MEDIA CONSISTENCY:
It’s so important to put content out DAILY on social media! You never know who is watching. As the saying goes” SOMEONE IS ALWAYS WATCHING”. If you are just showing up once a month on Twitter or other social media, people will not remember you or engage with you.
I believe that you need to be in front of people 24/7/365. Are you making videos on Youtube and sharing them? Post. Every. Single Day! No Exception!
Now for the BIG ONE: DRIVE THEM TO A CAPTURE FORM. Your goal is to make sure you are funneling potential customers and leads into your list. You should be adding to your list daily. Communicating with your people helps in the process all the way around.
Here is what I call the 10,000- hour rule. You must stay consistent. It takes 10,000 hours of consistent ‘practice’ to master your chosen niche. Most people won’t even invest 100 hours into their business. You have it beat already. Don’t ever give up.
I will grow my subscriber list by 50 new people. I will add 50% to my monthly income. I will learn 1 new thing per day. I will share my life with people daily.
I’m part of TL2Ivm –Traffic Leads 2 Income viral mailer coop with Rob Gehring- MY MENTOR. I buy leads through a package he has which sends me around 30- 40 leads per month for my 1 share in the coop. This cost is $50.00 per month. For me, my budget is 100 dollars a month for now. My increase is coming.
All of my coop leads promote Genesis Lifestyle Network. This is my high ticket sale item. Owner Jared Meyers does a fantastic job keeping everything up to date for us.
I’m part of THE CONVERSION PROS Which is a monthly cost of 50.00. It gives you a complete system to create lead capture pages, keeps track of your leads, and a host of other tools.
I have TCP on my phone. When a new lead form coop or my advertising from viral mailers, solo ads, and other Facebook groups, it gives me an alert. I can then call, text, or email my lead.
This is the lifeline to my Affiliate Marketing business.
Now my journey begins. I first leave a quick text saying,” Hi (their name), This is Michael Lipsey from the Genesis Lifestyle Network and I received your request for more information on our work from home program. When can we schedule a 5- minute talk”? Yes Folks it’s that easy. Welcome them to GLN. Tell them they are in the right place at the right time on your 1st call. Plant the seed, makes sense, right?
They text me back with a set time or when they are available and I call right then. If I don’t get a response that day, I contact them every day for 5-7 days. Be polite each time. You don’t want to scare them away. If no response MOVE ON. WORK WITH SOMEONE WHO WANTS WHAT YOU OFFER.
LET ME SAY AT THIS POINT, YOU MUST TAKE THE LEADERSHIP ROLE. YOU GUIDE THE CONVERSATION.
You should have a quick list of questions. Have you gotten your welcome email? Did you watch the video that explains who and what Genesis Lifestyle Network is? Did you sign up for the 7-day free trial?
Be calm and relaxed. Build a friendship. Set their minds at ease. Remember what it was like when you were deciding to get started.
I talked with one of my leads for several weeks, answering questions and guiding him with things to do. ( watch presentation video, read entire business plan). He became a core member at the beginner level.
I always encourage him/ them to start after the 7- day free trial period. Get the most out of the 7 days. You could earn your 1st commission. You would have zero out-of-pocket expenses.
At the end of your trial period, your system will be turned off until you become a core member. Let them know they can get started for as little as 50 dollars. I tell them the prices for all 6 of the packages. Some come in at beginner level some at Mastery level. Either way, folks you earn a commission. That’s exciting.
Build your list daily. The more the merrier. It’s all a numbers game. Go through as many as necessary to get your core member signed up.
If you are NOT part of this system, WHY NOT? It has everything you need. JUST FOLLOW THE SYSTEM STEP BY STEP.
JOIN ME NOW. I will introduce you to all our leaders. Sound good?
“A business idea is just another idea. But an idea backed by strong feasibility, a thorough business plan, and a smart team is no longer an idea. It’s now a solid business opportunity worth pursuing.” – Ajaero Tony Martins
Have you looked into the mirror today and told yourself, you are well-loved? YOU ARE. Have you said to yourself today, I can accomplish this task with speed and efficiency? YOU CAN and WILL.
Business Lesson 101: Start with a notebook and pen. Write down your thoughts no matter how big or small. Write what you see each morning, afternoon, and evening. This is the starting point of greatness.
Think about this next statement:
The Purpose of A Business
The purpose of a business is to offer value (through products and/or services) to customers, who pay for the value with cash or equivalents.
How do you offer your product or service? DO NOT EVER SELL PEOPLE. Research what they need and become the go-to person for solving that issue. When you help people, they are more apt to buy from you.
Value is always that which is perceived by the customer. Ideally, it should evolve, change, and multiply over time.
Talking to oneself is important. If you don’t speak positively to yourself, you are missing a valuable resource. You know what you are capable of, I see what you can and will become with a little training.
“The most important word in the world of money is cash flow. The second most important word is leverage.” – Rich Dad.
Pick one thing to FOCUS on until you master it. When I quit drinking, all I focused on for 2 years was not drinking until it became a habit. Now I don’t think about drinking.
Same with smoking. I focused on NOT smoking until it became a habit. Now I don’t think about smoking.
My mentors’ advice: MASTER ONE THING AT A TIME. DAILY HABITS START SMALL BUT GROW TO UNIVERSE-SIZE DREAMS.
I share my business with everyone looking to SUCCEED. You may not know anything about business but you can learn. It’s not that hard. Be TEACHABLE.
Start your day by saying, “TODAY IS A BLESSED AND PROSPEROUS DAY. I WILL BE MY BEST TODAY”.
Blessings and more blessings from Michael The Traveling Trucker. Today I did a double video. Sharing what I have learned with a new partner in crime. ( Not an actual crime.) With Antonio.
What are you, Dear READER doing to break the barriers in your life? How are y0u teaching what you have learned with others? I have the most wonderful mentors. They have a no-holds-barred approach with me. They are constantly challenging me to new heights.
I met Antonio in Elkton, Maryland. This man has an entrepreneurial spirit, a giving personality, and a thinker of new ideas. He shared with me how he got started in the trucking industry. Shared his entrepreneurial spirit for helping others succeed, and sharing life with people.
Antonio told me of the different trucks and trailers he uses for all the money-making opportunities. Dry van, reefer, and car hauler. If he wants to go to Vegas on vacation, he gets a load of cars going to Vegas. He shared with me being the bankroll for other projects. He wants to stay in the background and let other people shine out front.
We all can and should make a difference in the lives of people we live with, meet on a daily basis, and touch the hearts of complete strangers ( which I have never met). Mr. Shy, RIGHT? LOL
Let’s start breaking the rules, challenging and breaking stereotypes, and break boundaries of thinking that hold us back, and start to achieve success.
Your main focus is- Changing Your Thinking from the unknown to the known. We all have challenges, things we have never tried. Yes, there is a learning curve, but I know you are up for the challenge.
We MUST, MUST, MUST learn to persevere and discipline ourselves to greater heights. We have all the training we will ever need. ARE YOU USING IT? ACTION speaks loud, and people love action takers. ARE YOU AN ACTION TAKER?
We have to value and promote the contributions people make. Thanks, Janet, Rob, and Jared. Behind every family, there are people who fight on a daily basis to provide well-being and LOVE.
WATER is the source of life. Love powers it, and promotes healthy a body. We must train ourselves to be all we can be. Use the resources at hand, and then build them up. Give them away by teaching, guiding, and working side by side with people.
Hard work at the beginning makes for years of effortless daily life. Train yourself daily to complete tasks. Then mark them off. We have taught daily to-do lists. DID YOU WRITE THEM DOWN? ARE YOU MARKING THEM OFF AS YOU GO?
TO-DO LIST- Build your list. Build your relationships( phone, text, emails). Advertise daily. Build Like, know, and trust. Building your brand. I love being a trucker, can you tell? Michael The Traveling Trucker works so well for me.
Here is an exercise for NOW. Who are you? What do you do on a daily basis that you can share with others? Caregiver, good cook, writer, artist, homemaker, business leader, the list is endless.
Can and will you make a VIDEO? Stop looking at the camera as a horror, and create a best friend attitude. YOU MUST HAVE FUN. Smile a lot, laugh a lot, sing out loud, show the love that fills your heart with every breathe.
No matter what you do in life-BE YOUR BEST.
Share Life It’s So Much Fun
For more information on how I make money, leave a comment. I WILL get back to you.
The Maple leaf is on the flag, the Canadian dollar ($) (CAD) is it’s official currency.
What do we as American’s really know about Canada? It has an area of 9,984,670 square km, it is the world’s second-largest country by total area. Ottawa is its capital and Toronto is its largest city. English and French are their official languages.
The United States is its only land bordering country, with which it has the world’s largest land border. The country has immigrants from many countries, which makes it one of the world’s most multicultural and ethnically diverse nations.
Fun facts: Canadian food. Did you know Canadians eat more macaroni and cheese than any other country? I love my MacNCheese also. With kraft being the best, no wonder they have loved this food since before 1845!
I knew about Tim Horton’s. It is also responsible for having the most donut shops per capita than anywhere else. Throughout the entire world, there is not one country that surpasses them.
Being a trucker I love donuts, um I mean Canada.LOL
They’re even known for being the oldest brewery in North America and not only did they start it but the brewery is still running. Molson Coors Canada produced Molson Canadian beer and they are still making it right where they started in 1786.
77% of the maple syrup produced in the entire world is made right in Quebec.
There are no hormones in Canadian dairy products.
That’s because they don’t allow any kind of hormones to be given to the cattle. So if you’re looking for a healthy and all-natural drink, you’ll find it in the milk.
Imagine seeing license plates that are actually shaped like a polar bear.
I’m not too sure about this one but here it goes. In Dawson City Yukon, there is a cocktail where people drink whiskey with a human toe inside. It is called the sour toe cocktail.
People donate toes that have fallen off due to frostbite or other means. There is a $2500 fine if you swallow the toe. When people accidentally swallow the toe good samaritans donate newly severed toe to drink.
In the far north town of Churchill, Manitoba nobody locks their doors to their house or cars in case of a polar bear attack. Run for your lives and hope the lock is open. Churchill is located in the center of Polar Bear Alley and polar bears walk freely through the town.
Hopewell Rocks New Brunswick – Home to the highest tides in the world. This body of water moves 100 billion tons of water through its tides twice daily.
Manitoulin Island in Ontario is the largest fresh freshwater island in the world. It is an amazing place to visit. Located in Georgian Bay of Lake Huron, it is filled with hiking and cultural experiences. The Great Spirit Circle Trails allows people to immerse themselves in Indigenous culture.
This is for my sponsor Janet, Don, and family. I know from Janet that they are celebrating Their Thanksgiving weekend.

How many outstanding generalities do you know? How many people do you know with unique and distinctive characteristics? I want you to know from the first-YOU ARE A MIRACLE. You’re an original.
Be enthusiastic, It really does make people stand up and take notice. Have you ever been in a room when someone makes their entrance and the room explodes with joy, happiness, and laughter?
People are drawn to these people. Here is a cool saying” You can’t walk backward into the future”. I try to do this one thing everywhere I go, Leave people better than I found them. Give a little every day, not until it hurts, but until it feels good.
I’m a KOOL KAT.
Are you being flexible? There is great strength in tenderness. It’s amazing how a tender sapling survives a hard wind by being flexible and by moving with the wind instead of resisting it.
Say this out loud: I Am flexible, I Am Tender and Strong. Resilient and Grounded. Wow, I needed that myself. Thanks, Michael.
If you treat people as they are, they will remain as they are. If you treat people as though they were what they could be, You’ll help them become what they could be.
BIG TIP: DON’T SPEND YOUR LIFE STANDING AT THE COMPLAINT COUNTER. We all could have plenty to complain about, let’s find things to praise about, laugh about, love about, sing about. Be different, LOOK FOR THE BEST.
Which side are they on?
The sky’s not the limit. No one can put a limit on you without your permission. Don’t set limits on yourself either.
You need help and I offer my helping hand. You say you need more money, time, and freedom. LIFE is not FREE, but very attainable with a little work.
Ask me how by leaving me a comment and I will share my insider secret.
Most people are plodding along in their daily lives. They have an idea of what they can spend or what they can put on their numerous credit cards without making more money. They still want more, BUT are not willing to do anything to create more income.
For those willing. People can babysit, dog walk, housesit, deliver food, drive Uber, deliver phone books, or a host of other things. For those with a plan, you can make more money. It’s up to YOU.
For me, if I want more money I cut someone’s grass, pressure wash houses, do a yard sale. These are a few of my go-to items for making money.
18 months ago I can across Affiliate Marketing and decided to check it out and give it a try. Once into it, I said, I’m all in.
So why affiliate marketing? You make a commission selling someone else product. There is the Concept Of Passive Income. Affiliate marketing is one of the world’s most popular methods of generating passive income online.
Build your own brand, choose products that you love, create authentic content and you will be on your way to building a real source of passive income.
Imagine 8.2 billion dollars by the end of 2022. Do you want a piece of the action?
Four parties are involved in affiliate marketing: Affiliates: The promoters of the product, Product creators: The creators of the product, Networks: The networks managing the affiliates, Consumers: The end-users of the product.
An affiliate network acts as an intermediary between the merchants and their affiliates. An affiliate marketer is a person who promotes another person’s product or service for a commission. 10%, 20% 50% some 100%.
At the end of the day, before becoming an affiliate, you have to align your expectations to your earning potential. What kind of industry or niche you operate in, and what kind of work you do depends a lot on how much you want to make.
Some affiliates make a few hundred a week, some a day. I have seen firsthand some earn 100k per month.
Can you write a blog, detailing your product or service? Can you create your own product or service?
For me, I decide to promote GLN- Genesis Lifestyle Network. It is a complete done-for-you system. I earn commissions when someone buys a package from a link I promote. We sell digital education. You can earn a commission of 50,100,300,600,1200 and 2000 per sale depending on the package they purchase.
Food for thought: One 2000.00 sale per month. Extra 12,000 per year. That’s in your pocket commission. NOW BIGGER: 2 Sales Per Month-That’s 4k for the month. Extra 24k per year. Is it starting to make you dream BIG?
Included in your system is a downline builder for other products and services. Once you sign up, you will be given a link to promote that is assigned to you. You put the ending number into the downline builder and promote it. When people sign up under you and purchase a product or service you earn a commission. How cool is that?
Imagine 18 additional income resources at your fingertips to promote. It keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Here are a few actionable steps that you can implement and follow to become a successful affiliate marketer:
This is NUMBER ONE, Never Neglect Building Your List. This is your money for the long term.
Don’t give them all the information. Make them curious and what more.
Don’t Advertise The Product EVER. This is a BIG NO-NO. Use a capture page that creates wanting more from you so they reach out to YOU.
This one is CRITICAL: Be Familiar With What You Promote. Many don’t and lose people. People begin to ask questions and you have no answer for them.
LEARN FROM YOUR MENTORS. They have been through it, they can and will guide you.
Keep On Reading And Learning. This is a daily course of action. Leaders are readers. They keep learning and evolving.
Push Valuable Content To The Web. What you care about, share with everyone. There are others who will have some of the same interests as yourself.
