You probably have never heard of Dean Holland but he is one of Internet marketing’s rising stars.
Just two years back he and I were being coached by Alex Jeffreys, also a rising star and one that shines even brighter and stronger than either Dean or I, at least at the moment.
Dean produced an e-book, which he offered as a gift at the time, which showed how to install a SEO optimised WordPress blog. I didn’t use it to launch this site but I have used it as the backbone of launching several others.
As a result I wrote a blog post elsewhere with the title: “How Dean Holland Changed My Life.”
I have always enjoyed life changing experiences. Back in the days of the ‘Human Potential Movement’ I attended lots of workshops and experienced Gestalt Therapy, Rolfing, Bio-energetics, Shiatsu, T.A, Gestalt, and Hypnosis.
Also I qualified as a therapist and founded a few psychotherapy courses and centres along with colleagues I met along the way.
Dean’s contribution to my change, however, was different.
His is the example of how someone starting with a simple blog, and a little coaching, can turn a £5000 credit card debt into a business that pays its affiliates £20,000 to £30,000 each month.
I am not so successful but I do make sales on-line.
Over at the Internet Marketing Warrior Forum I came upon an old post from Dean written long before his business really took off:
“Its a great feeling ya know ?! It just drives me even more to see the impact I am having on people
“In fact earlier I got a ping back to my blog so went to check it out what the site was… The subject of the post was ..
“Dean Holland changed my life !!!
“I mean.. WHAT !! Wow.. What a compliment.. I just couldn’t believe my eyes..
“The guy that wrote this – Stephen Bray just got my ebook and with it built his own blog.. In his words it made it simple !
“Sorry don’t mean to go on but that’s just the biggest business compliment and achievement I could get”
Now this post isn’t really about Dean, or me. It’s about you.
You see what goes round comes round. What you do in one cycle of life affects those that follow it, but in doing so it also can affect other people too.
Have you changed anyone’s life recently?
