 Dear Mark,

 I’m writing today to thank you again for your continuing and far-reaching impact on my life. Your guidance has proven invaluable time and again in more ways than I ever could have imagined….

 Running a business is perhaps old hat to you, but not all of it has come naturally to me…. The principles you laid out in Ready, Fire, Aim [LINKTO BOOK] helped me get started doing things that scared me before I felt ready – which is a good thing because I started two and a half years ago and I still don’t feel ready! And thanks to your advice in Seven Years to Seven Figures, [LINK TO BOOK] I’m looking at launching a totally different product to create another source of income for myself.

Even though I’m not quite at $100 million, or really even in the ballpark yet, there is no question that I am much further along thanks to you…. And for that I will be forever grateful…. But more than anything, I just wanted to say thank you for doing more for me than you probably realized to help me follow slowly but surely in your footsteps.

Just wanted to say thanks for everything you’ve done to help me and so many others. Every day I marvel at how my life is changing for the better… and how others’ lives are too….

Although I read a million newsletters and enjoy several… no one teaches
quite like my friend Mark!

Hey Mark, about a year ago you gave me some advice on a promo. Well, we just got final DM results back. We did a split mailing, and my 30,000 test won, doing 127% ROI to front end and 290% ROI to backend. That’s probably the best ROI of any DM this year.

Thanks for your help!

I’m still ecstatic over your talk and the fact that you came up for the seminar. Many people said your talk was worth the entire price of the event. Wanted you to know that…. I want you to know you touched a lot of people – including ME. And where I come from, THAT is most important.

I will always be seeking to learn, improve, and grow. Words are supremely powerful things but still can’t express what you’ve taught me through your writings and personal discussions. You are the gold standard to me!

I’ve been reading your [essays] for a good while now. Not all of it applies to me, but I read it all nonetheless.

 I’ve always been confident in my capabilities and those of my fabulous husband,… 18 months ago, we left an uber-cushy expat job in Asia to partner in some new ventures in order to provide a legacy for our three kids, then all under 3.

 It’s tough going… but we’re not going to give up.

Your nuggets of information and inspiration always seem to say just what we need to hear, to suggest a different way of considering things, or riding out the storm.

 So, thank you.

An email from KP:

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all your writings, and as I’ve told you in person, I KNOW (stronger than “believe”) that Ready, Fire, Aim is the best business book there is on small/medium-sized business and marketing – done right….

 I look forward to continuing to enjoy your wonderful insights.

I just love getting your “stuff” in my e-mail…. I read it every time, as 90% of the time it is of relevance and value to me on some level. Having just re-launched a business at the age of 61, I gain great heart and hope from your wisdom and untiring efforts to elevate your fellow entrepreneurs in any way you can. Thanks for your inspiration and advice. It has been a great blueprint for us, and will certainly be the backbone of our new business strategy and action.”

“It’s a bold claim… to make someone a millionaire in seven years or less… but Mark Ford (a.k.a. Michael Masterson) shows you exactly how to do it in Seven Years to Seven Figures. 

 “I’ve seen first-hand how he has transformed the financial lives of numerous people, myself included. Seven Years to Seven Figures is partly a diary of these real-life transformations… The book offers detailed case studies of how these ordinary people were able to make such incredible leaps in their financial life….

 “I’d highly recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t want to wait a lifetime to get wealthy.”
