Coaching a Convict to Millionaire Status – Week 1


Millionaire Mentor Week 1 Accomplished
As you may or may not know, I am donating 3 hours of coaching per week to an old friend named Mark Lyford. After a pretty successful internet marketing career in the late 1990’s – 2005, Mark fell on hard times and to keep things going he started to grow marijuana. This lead to his eventual arrest and 28 months in prison.

Now that Mark is out. We are working on ways to help him get some income. We started by simply looking at his applications available on his Mac. I found one app with some potential and set him out on the path of creating content. I loaned Mark $20 in seed money to make his millions. So far with my help he has turned that $20 into $98 in just a few short days. Tonight we will be looking at how to get the same results with his $98.

This story is unique because Mark is VERY motivated to get things going. Some of my coaching clients claim to be motivated but they don’t have the same forcing function in place that Mark does. I am refreshed by Marks ability to carry out the tasks I put in front of him. This will make a huge difference in his bottom line.

What can we learn from all of this?
Well the first thing to learn is you must start somewhere. I gave Mark just $20 and we have already found ways to get a 5x return on that small amount. I am confident that we will continue on this path and see more money on each task we finish. There will always be setbacks but overall this was a great start. It’s important to understand that even though only $100 has been generated that the number of zero’s is irrelevant. He could have just as easily turned $20k into $100k or $200k into $1 Million. All it takes are some solid strategies and the determination of someone who wants it all so badly he can taste it.

Keep watching my blog or better yet subscribe to my email updates in the top right corner. I will update you on Marks progress each week. We are also recording all these skype calls and will be releasing them in the coming weeks.

  • Hi Brad,
    I found you on Facebook. Not a favorite of mine as it is a time sucker! My family always gets me there somehow. Glad they did this time, I am so interested to see what happens with Mark. I know he is going to make it big! We all are, there is plenty to go around. Those who share the most, get the most in return!

  • I can't wait to see how Mark gets on. I know he'll do great. I find it very inspiring that

    a) He had the guts to "man up" and care for his family, do it again to serve his time, do it AGAIN to admit he was wrong and turn his life around. So very proud of his unstoppable spirit.

    b) Brad has given of himself to help a guy out when he's down.

    You guys are both inspirational and I look forward to all that is to come.

    Hey Guys,

    I'm new here I just found your blog from the WF. What strategies are you using with Mark?
    This will be cool to follow.



  • Brad Gosse


    The full coaching call videos will be available soon. The strategy changes each time we talk because it has to evolve.

    We start with a plan but it's always in flux.

    Well that was a whole lot of nothing LOL. Mark started with a music product because he loves music and has the skills to produce it easily with his mac.

  • Excellent case study Brad. I am looking forward to following it and watch the success unveil before everyone's eyes.

    Thanks Bill! It's going to be a fun journey

  • I love this story and really look forward to following Mark's quest.

  • Brad Gosse

    Thanks Ted.

  • Great point. I think it is just as important to celebrate the 80$ wins as it is the $8000 or $80,000 wins. The mentality is the same and the same success habits are required to take you from one level to the next. I think the biggest mistake most people make is they set huge goals and then forget to celebrate the small wins along the way. The big success is nothing more than a series of small wins.

    Congrats to you and Mark to a successful start to the challenge.

  • Brad Gosse

    Agreed that you need to celebrate the small wins. Too often we overlook them when they just need scaling :)

  • Hey Brad and Justin

    its right, my first pay check from the old days was $452 , that turned into $185,000 a month within 18 months. its all a numbers game and scaling. which is why im so excited about getting going :) I feel I can scale my operation with a lot of hard work and the right decisions to achieve the goal I ahve set... Which is $1,000,000 in the first year and then $1,000,000 in recurring income year on year ...

    And your right Brad, you wont find any one more motivated to succeed than me !

    Bring it on world ! :)
