Welcome to…

Hi, I’m Tom.  I teach how you can create an income earning blog.  This doesn’t involve recruiting your family and friends, hosting corny home parties, or setting up 3 way calls, and you can keep your business and private lives completely separate.  All this means is that you still get to have a life.  How great is that?

I’m taking this blog places, and you can hop on board and come along for the ride.  I do this with the Empower Network System, and this blog is my luxury yacht.  Ready to set sail?

Network marketing doesn’t have to be the awkward & pushy profession that many think it is, especially if you do it the smart internet way. People are searching for this stuff, so give them what they want.

Give up that leaky bath tub and let’s build a cream puff to set sail in.  Won’t you come along?

Tom Connelly

Hey everyone!

I wanted to let you all know that EVERY Monday night, Empower Network holds it’s “Empower Hour” call, which anyone can dial into and get a flavor for what is talked about within Empower Network.  Sometimes it’s inspirational, sometimes they talk about upcoming products and promotions.  They ALWAYS talk about what it’s like to not have to go to a regular job and work a miracle business from home.  You’re sure to find something that inspires you on the call.  So, if you listen in and find that you’ve found what you are looking for, or feel that this is something that you would like to get into or hear more about, GET ON THE MONDAY Empower Hour CALL!  It’s open to everyone.

Dial This Number (209)255-1040

If you miss it don’t fret, the replay number is (209)255-1049 Access Code: 498575#

…and get back to me when you want to get into the best thing out there today.  I already know this, but if you’re new you may need some time to let it all sink in.  That’s okay, take as much time as you need, but when you’re ready, I’ll BE HERE!

Anyone who knows Vick Strizheus knows that the guy is a guru when it comes to acquiring and driving traffic that converts into sales.  Vick was the genius behind Big Idea Mastermind, and he has been not only one of the top income earners inside Empower Network, but with any affiliate offer that he decides to participate in.

Why? …you ask?

Because the guy knows where and how to get the traffic that converts.

It’s that simple, yet for many, that hard.

I’m amazed at the number of online marketers who can’t even build their own lead capture page or squeeze page.

Too many people leave it up to the host program to supply that.

I have built my own and I use the company capture pages, but it all depends on the path I want the lead to take and which sales funnel I want them to enter.

The difference here is that too many are totally reliant on the company provided capture pages.

What’s the problem with that, you say? While company provided capture pages are slick, if it is a really popular offer, the chances of that capture page becoming stale or worn out are high. Wouldn’t it be great to send people to your own capture page and use your own funnel?

Again, it’s all about which way you want them to go.

You make the choice.

So, here we have Vick Strizheus, and he is the brains behind the new Empower Network product called Internet Traffic Formula.

You can download the Think and Grow Rich PDF from this page, but please read on to learn the key points from Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.  The Think and Grow Rich PDF is available in many places, but here I want to provide some digest information about it in order to distill the key points for those wishing to read the original work of art by Napoleon Hill.


As you read the book, you’ll notice a striking similarity to many of the success mantras that are preached by the majority of today’s motivational speakers and success gurus. For the longest time I never knew this but after being exposed to this overall body of work for so long, you can easily see this. Also. ever since The Secret movie was released in 2007, you can REALLY see the similarity. The Secret took much of its philosophy from Napoleon Hill’s work. They mixed it with some other work as well, like the philosophy of Abraham Hicks, for example.

In addition to the Think and Grow Rich PDF which I provide at the end of the article, how about hearing from the author himself?
