As part of ACN’s long-standing relationship with Mr. Donald J. Trump, he has graciously agreed to provide us with a regular inspirational note – prepared exclusively for ACN IBOs. I don’t have to tell you how incredible this is. People pay big money to get inside the mind of a billionaire, and now, this valuable insight will be a regular feature on our website.
To be successful you have to be willing to do what successful people do. There are certain characteristics, certain practices that all successful people share and who better to communicate those than one of the world’s foremost billionaires. I hope you will enjoy reading his first message below and I’m confident he has some exciting and insightful things in store for us that will be uniquely Trump.
Rely on the Power of the Printed Word
I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone that I am in the media a lot — being in the public eye is a necessary part of what I do. It’s always refreshing when I can pick and choose the media outlets I appear in — and that was certainly the case with the latest issue of Success from Home Magazine, which features ACN and is available on newsstands right now.
I know from my conversations with the Co-Founders that this magazine is an important tool, but here’s my take on why this magazine could be important to you.
Don’t get me wrong — I love technology. It’s an important part of our lives today and an important part of helping me grow my own businesses, but there is something to be said about a printed piece — holding it in your hand, flipping its pages. I still read the paper (several of them actually) every day, and not on my computer but the “old fashioned” way. I’m a firm believer that a printed piece legitimizes something in a way an email or webpage can’t. A printed piece often does the talking for you when perhaps you can’t. Don’t mistake that to mean I condone shyness as an excuse not to get out and talk to people — quite the contrary. I think using shyness as an excuse to not be successful is a cop-out, but that’s a topic for another day — though we will touch on it here. Some of the most soft-spoken, seemingly reserved people I know can bring you to tears in a boardroom. But perhaps you aren’t there yet and that is ok, because this magazine may do more to legitimize your business, more to communicate your company’s values and business model than anything you could ever say.
Get to the newsstand and check out your company, and definitely share this magazine with others. I’m not just saying that because I’m in it. If talking about and sharing something you are passionate about isn’t enough to get you outside of your comfort zone, then I don’t know what is.
— Donald Trump
