This video is about YOU… not about me.
So if you’ve been struggling to get started with the whole online marketing thing, this will help you get un-stuck.
It’ll help you get out of your own way and on your way to creating videos on a daily basis to help you grow as a person and to help you grow your business.
Be sure to pay close attention to what I’m saying in the video and take IMMEDIATE action on doing the little assignment I give ya. It will help you as I know it has helped myself and countless others.
So my buddy/business partner, Brendan Wenzel created a video talking about releasing your weirdness and I decided to create a response to it.
Here’s my video response to his!
You’ll get to see one of my weird little quirks about me and that’s that I juggle. Many of you probably knew this and might not even think it’s weird any more, but many people who first hear that about me they immediately think I grew up in the circus.
While I didn’t grow up in the circus, I did end up going to a bunch of juggling conventions while I was younger and competed in different competitions at these conventions.
They were a lot of fun and helped shape me into who I am today.
Hey guys Chris Hughes here and right now I’m live at Finca Lerida here in Boquete, Panama.
In this video you’ll get to see the Finca Lerida coffee plantation. One of my buddies Cole, who was filming this video went to the top of the mountain there to have some coffee and share this experience with you.
This video is to show a little bit about the experiences I’ve been having while living in Panama.
The reason I wanted to create this short video was to show you how businesses are built in the offline brick-n-mortar world. You need to have some type of a system that you can run people through.
For example in the video here, we drove up an entire mountain to have the coffee that was produced at this place because the coffee there is so fresh and delicious and being above everything else is totally worth the experience.
The cool thing about Finca Lerida is that you get to see how everything is made.
When you are driving up the hill, you get to see rows and rows of coffee plants all over the place.
In the video I show some pictures of the rows of coffee, some pictures of the guys naturally roasting the coffee beans from the sun below where I am standing in that video.
In a little building in the distance of this video you get to see where the next step of the coffee process is, you know all the finishing touches and things like that.
To me, it is awesome to witness something like that where you get to see the entire process of being created and actually seeing where the product is being consumed.
When you are running a business you need to have some type of system in place otherwise you will not succeed. You see, Systems Succeed, People are the ones who fail.
Right now I’m actually using the Empower Network system to help train people on how to sell things online and earn an income from the internet.

Hey guys Chris Hughes here live from Boquete, Panama and I just wanted to show you the view here and I wanted to talk with you about something that Napoleon Hill originally spoke about in the book, Think and Grow Rich.
This video is going to be about forming a mastermind, which is basically a group of like-minded people to challenge you and elevate you to the next level and to become a better person. As well as to improve yourself and in the case of my mastermind, make more money.
You see, about a month and a half ago I really took the idea of a mastermind seriously and I took action and formed a mastermind with some of my closest Entrepreneurial friends.
This took place on a trip to Costa Rica and we all decided that it would be very beneficial for us all if we challenged each other, encouraged each other and shared resources that were helping us.
It was basically put together to force us to step out of our comfort zone and become better.
Now what happened was a little mind boggling…at least to me anyway.
I tripled my income and a couple of the guys in the group started taking their business seriously (now that the ego got involved) and they really started to do work.
Some of the other guys noticed that this put them on the path to ultimately get to where they wanted to be.
I really just wanted to share the importance of it because when I first learned about it, I did not take it seriously at all and I really missed out on a huge opportunity to grow.
My ego had gotten in the way and I thought that I knew better than Napoleon Hill and didn’t need to use his little success tips. Damn ego..
Now one of the biggest things I’ve noticed about this mastermind is that if you are truly struggling with something and you let other people in your mastermind know, they can help you overcome the obstacle.
Whether something isn’t paying off yet, or you have that little thing in your head telling you that you can’t do it, these guys/gals can help you break through.
It’s really a valuable lesson to actually create one of these masterminds because you’ll have people around you who want you to succeed.
You are probably aware and have noticed that a lot of people who you speak to about your business or your goals do not care about them.
Now what you want to do is start to find like-minded people to form a mastermind with you. Find people who are at the same level as you, or are just above your income right now.
Finding people like this forces you to become comfortable with where you’re at and it forces you to challenge each other to become more… plus, you can talk shit to your friends if you beat them in the mini challenges you guys come up with.
You can form a little facebook group and make it private if you aren’t in the same town/state/country. That’s what we’ve done with my private group. We’re all over the world but we keep in touch via facebook and meeting up around the world.
Earlier today I walked down into town to grab some lunch with my friends Cole and Max.
As you know, I absolutely love business and marketing and when we were walking back we came across a situation that taught a valuable business lesson…
Do you see a lot of people walking by this guy?
There wasn’t a lot of people who walk along this street, but it does happen to be on the walk back to my house here in Valle Escondido so we happened to be walking along the street.
Get this, about 2 blocks the opposite way is where downtown Boquete is. There’s people walking all over the place visiting shops, enjoying the weather and just waiting to buy some ice cream because it was a beautiful day!
Yet this guy was perched up here on this street with no people on it (except us).
This is something that a lot of people tend to do when it comes to building a business…especially an online business.
You’ve got to GET IN FRONT OF THE PEOPLE!
If you don’t have people walking into your store, or visiting your website you are not going to make any sales and that means no money!
I don’t know about you, but I like money. *cue voice from Idiocracy*
It can be very difficult for people to start getting traffic to their website when they first get started with marketing their business online. I know for me, I had a hell of a time trying to figure it all out.
Luckily, I ended up learning how to do it and now drive a LOT of traffic to websites so I can make a lot of money, which makes me happy happy happy like Phil from Duck Dynasty.
The only true tip I could give for this guy selling ice cream at the slowest street in town is to head back into town and start getting in front of the people!
The ice cream was only $0.75 and was delicious! It was the first time I ever had coconut ice cream and damn was it tasty!
Check out some of the pictures below and see the little machine he was selling this out of.
