Frustrated by Your Lack of Progress in Building Your Life Vision, Business, Non-profit… or Gaining Clarity on Where to Begin?

Lack of clarity in WHAT you’re aiming to create, WHO you’re creating it for, and HOW you’re going to do it is why most people fail.

It’s not that you’re not capable of making it happen—whatever ‘it’ is.

It’s not that you don’t have enough time or money to make ‘it’ happen. Too many people have proven that.

But hard work and investment isn’t enough…

You can work hard. You can spend money and burn time.  But “it” isn’t going to happen until you get serious about the process of gaining CLARITY.

Here’s why it’s so important to learn the “Life Coaching” skill in order to gain clarity on your WHAT, WHO & HOW.

1. You Can’t Figure it All Out Alone

Most people are trying to figure “it” all out in their head, or on their own. You might purchase courses, attend events and read books, but none of this allow you to work with real people, ongoing, who use ‘coaching skills’ to ask you powerful questions and draw out information that leads you to creating a highly organized plan aligned with who YOU are, your resources, your core values & YOUR unique goals.

You’re not going to gain clarity on your ‘What, Who and How’ by having someone just ‘tell you what to do.’

While most seek a consulting process alone (just tell me what to do), it doesn’t work that way.

Also part of this same point, you must engage with real people to practice your message. But it’s costly to do this in the real world. Practicing your message, videos, marketing, etc. within a supportive and safe coaching environment is KEY to expediting the process of figuring out what “it” all looks like:

- WHAT you’re aiming to create,
- WHO you’re creating it for, and
- HOW you’re going to do it.

2. You Must Also Use the Coaching Skills… on YOURSELF!

As you build out your life vision, business, non-profit, products, services and marketing, you will often find yourself alone. You must know how to coach yourself. It’s imperative that you know how to ask yourself powerful questions, and how to lead yourself through the productive planning process. When you meet with an obstacle, and you most certainly will, you must know how to overcome it. When you have a new idea that is key to moving your bigger vision forward, you must know how to implement it effectively.

Learning the Life Coaching skill teaches you this process.

3. Success is a Process, Not a Destination

While most people are floundering as they look for the quick answer, or the single magic bullet, the Life Coaching skill teaches you a process that you get to use day in and day out, to gain clarity on what to do, moment-to-moment, to manifest your vision. It is the skill that allows you to lead others and yourself to solutions, and overcome challenges as they arise. This is true empowerment. This is the foundation of offering your value to others.

If you have a life vision, or are lacking clarity on WHAT exactly you’re setting out to create, WHO you’re creating it for, and HOW exactly you’ll build it and offer it to them…

Learn the Life Coaching skill and immerse yourself in a community that supports you, short and long-term through the process of not just building it, but that also teaches you how to figure out whatever comes your way, with clarity.

Want MORE Confidence?

Confidence impacts everything…

It impacts whether you’ll nail that next job interview or even if you’ll apply for the ‘job you really want…’

It impacts the success of your business, such as whether you’ll charge what you’re really worth, or be able to represent the value you really have in your marketing message and presentation… it even impacts if  you’ll ever start on that business or non-profit idea in the first place!

Your level of confidence, or lack of it, is immediately felt in your words, even in your writing… on a blog, Facebook post, a video, and through your voice.

There’s little debate, confidence is one of the most important skills you can develop.

Yes, it’s indeed a SKILL you can develop.

You must learn it and you must practice it–ideally in a safe and supportive environment such as the one we’ve created. Such learning places are unique, so take note and advantage of what I’m sharing with you here…

On Thursday I’ve invited on Barbara Silva—an instructor and co-founder of the Academy of Coaching Cognition, to share more with us about how you can develop your confidence by working on “Life Coaching” skills.

Even if you have NO INTEREST in being a life coach as a career, the confidence you will gain before summer this year… will profoundly impact every area of your life, forever forward.

Join us Thursday to start gaining more confidence, ASAP… Because your life is now!

Is “Happiness,” Love & Healthy Relationships a Skill?

We’ve experienced it or seen it…

Someone who loves the other is screaming at the top of their lungs, furious.

It may be a spouse, parent, girlfriend/boyfriend or friend.

We’ve also experienced or witnessed a person beating up on themselves in much the same counterproductive manner.

How do you communicate with someone who disagrees with you on topics that are important, which you are passionate about, without losing it when the other person pushes back or appears offensive?

How do you guide someone you’d like to positively influence from one perspective, which you see as harmful or destructive, to another perspective, and see them willing to follow you there, rather than resist? How do you do it without manipulation or tricks, but instead, transparently and openly?

How can you lead yourself in much the same way, from where you are now, to where you want to be?

If you want to be happier, or improve your quality of relationships, learn about the skill that impacts the quality of life, relationships and results offered by all other life skills—take a time out to learn about the skill known as “Life coaching.”

What’s it Take to Be a ‘Success’ in Network Marketing?

You believe in your products and opportunity, but getting others to see it has been tough.

You know there are people in your company doing well, so why not you?

What’s missing when hard work or “following the system” isn’t bringing in results quickly enough?


1. Authentic Confidence:  This can be described as a genuine kind of engagement, with an openness and transparency. You’ve seen this skill from other successful people in their marketing copy, videos, webinars, and in-person. You’re feeling it even right now through these simple words on your screen. It’s rarely described because so few people know how to teach it.  If you’re ready, we’ll show you how to get it, and own it forever.

2. Coaching Skills: The ability to communicate effectively by asking “powerful questions,” listening for problems you can solve, and knowing how to give feedback so it’s clear to a group or the individual that you have THE solution to their problem.  You’ve seen this skill used by successful people, over and over again. It’s the foundation for leadership and sales, but it’s rarely taught in its pure form because so few people know how to teach it. If you understood the value of this paragraph, we can teach you coaching skills before summer.

3. Connecting Emotionally: Whether it’s in front of a group, on a webinar, in a video, or in person, you must connect to people on an emotional level. This has nothing to do with learning ‘direct sales language’ or sales copy, even though millions of dollars have been made telling people they can just “swipe” their words and get the same result. You know better. This is about you connecting emotionally with your audience using your own words, like I’m doing with you right now. You’ve seen this skill in ALL successful people. If you’re ready, we can show you how to master this powerful skill.

If you still think you can build your business without these 3 skills, you’re going down a long, hard and very expensive road.


If you start learning these skills NOW, you’ll jump onto the fast-track and join a very small group of people who can call themselves leaders, and get paid for it.

How To Discover & Market Your Own Value In The New “Empathy Economy”

There’s a healthy shift underway…

The heartfelt center of our economy is growing.

Here’s why:

Consider how much information we have access to today.  We constantly pass  thousands of ads and messages online.

Facebook posts, blog articles, videos, emails–

It’s impossible to process a fraction of it.

With so many people trying to get everyone’s attention, it’s only natural that quality will become more relevant than quantity.

But what makes a “quality” message?

Think about it…

If a Facebook post, advertisement, blog article, video, or email resonates with your own core values and interests (much like this article you’re reading now), it grabs your attention. If it goes on to solve a problem or address a need, you move forward to consume more (clicking on the ad, giving your email to subscribe, purchasing a product, etc).

It’s extremely inexpensive to reach large quantities of people online… IF you can connect  heart-to-heart.

Free Classes With Mike Klingler & Free Copy Of Mike’s Course Book 101

- Discover your purpose and passion-filled career using the Internet.

Free classes with Mike Klingler May 17th-June 14th. —————————————————————————————————————

This is extraordinary because it’s driving our business and marketing culture to learn what it means to truly CARE!

And it’s creating the opportunity for you to thrive with your own online business, by simply being who you already are.

As you’ll learn, discovering your message and niche is far easier than you think.

By creating a business out of your core values, passions, interests, hobbies, life experiences, insights and authentic personality, you set yourself up to win in every way (financially, but also by loving what you do).

You set yourself up to find a niche audience who naturally connects and appreciates what you offer.

It’s ALL Changing To The Empathetic Person’s Advantage!

More people are becoming savvy to the use of marketing tactics and ploys.

They’re becoming sensitive to the difference between a marketer who cares versus a brand that merely pretends to.

They’re appreciating authenticity over the “overuse” of sales psychology.

This all drives at one of the reasons your opportunity online today is so extraordinary:

You can compete with corporations and their multimillion dollar ad budgets doing what they’re unwilling to do–care & connect.

But are YOU willing to start here?

Are you willing to build your entire business, message and marketing structure from a more authentic and empathetic intention?

Are you willing to develop the skills and awareness to know how?

If yes, you will thrive.

If not, you will struggle (unless you belong to a very small percentage of charismatic personalities or have a large advertising budget to compensate).

Most people are fixated on marketing strategy alone because it “seems” like the faster path to achieving one’s goals.

But if you want results,  it will be faster to focus on what we’re discussing today… a business and marketing plan that merges your “authentic self” and core values with a structure and message that will connect you with your audience in a meaningful way.

This is great news if you’re innately empathetic.

If not (if you’re more motivated by what you get than what you give), I’ll put this into terms you might understand:

You will make a lot more money if you move away from studying marketing strategy alone and into learning skills that authentically connect you with your audience.

You CAN learn it.

As human beings we all have the capacity to connect, if we choose to.

The key is to merge the “authentic you” (based out of your core values, personality, interests, passions, life experience and insights) into a message that fills a need; and then to place THAT message into a marketing structure that effectively sells without an overuse of “old-school” sales tactics.

There’s a huge added benefit if you do this:

In addition to attracting a lot more financial success, you’ll have a more sustainable business that you enjoy, with customers who truly appreciate what you offer.

So how do you arrive at a message that aligns the authentic “YOU” with a need?

How do you find your niche in the process?

Where do you begin?

How do you structure your funnel so it leads people to act, and so you profit, while it represents your core values and personality at the same time, authentically?

No Matter Where You’re At In The Discovery or Development Process, Start & Remain With What You’re Passionate About.

You may or may not have a clue yet what you would enjoy giving in a business online, but if you start with what you’re passionate about and remain true to yourself, you’re ensured to end up with a genuine message that will turn into a successful business (if you follow the practices I share in this article).

If you do have ideas of what your business is all about, the same practices I’ll be sharing will lead you to all the answers you’re looking for (including offers, framing, all of it).

One thing is for certain, the technical piece is NOT what is holding you back–that is easy to overcome if you know what your message is and exactly what to say and how to set it up to profit. I’ll return to that later.

The meaning in your work is becoming a key consideration, but making money will be a major factor in your progress or lack thereof.

While an authentic heartfelt approach to your work is defining the new business and marketing culture, money is still the primary tool to get your message out.

In fact, the greater the impact you want to have, the more money you must make.

The challenge?

Those who are most empathetic (most caring and thoughtful) often shy away from learning how to gain influence with money.

They shy away from business and marketing planning, and learning sales psychology.

This limits our most important contributors in their capacity to give what they are here to give.

The good news?

As our culture continues to shift, more ‘empathetic people’ are finding a healthy balance between empathy and selling.

The new online economy has made it
easier than ever to find this balance.

Our world needs more empathetic marketers, coaches and business leaders to be financially empowered (and to gain influence by refining their communication & marketing skills).

Empowering these types of people with vital skills will inevitably accelerate the positive shifts we see unfolding today.

In fact, it’s among the most practical, “grounded” plans for securing a brighter future.

The School Of Online Business is the leading resource for finding your purpose, identifying your value, discovering your niche, and creating a passion-filled career by leveraging the Internet effectively (in full alignment with who you are).

We are committed, as a complete resource and friendly knowledge-base of close-knit community contributors, to support you through practicing the needed communication and marketing skills that will allow you to fully thrive and prosper in the new online economy.

We also provide lucrative incentives to encourage people to spread this message… so we can move those who are ready to their best selves (as defined by them), by creating their own online-based career that’s aligned with a deeper purpose and their own values.

We believe this new education-business system is changing the world in practical terms.

This article describes how.

The Three Key Components

These 3 items must be learned and practiced continuously in order to create a passion-filled career. When guided properly, it’s fun, not draining.

1. Marketing Funnel (how you structure your message and value to profit)
2. Communication Skills
3. Refining Your Message (Finding your niche, offers, products AND confidence)

1. The single most important and valuable asset
within reach today is a Marketing Funnel.

A marketing funnel is what most people are missing who try to make money online.  It is a simple but highly organized means of attracting an interested audience, collecting email addresses, establishing trust and selling through an automated fashion.

The key is that your message and entire
funnel should represent your core values.

The key to accomplishing this is to get real help that considers both introspection + external engagement (practice) under supervision.

Basically, you need a clear path that will help you figure it ALL out, from A-Z, so that what you create is congruent with your values and works (makes money).

The process includes highly time-efficient course work, but also one-on-one and group coach-consulting to take EVERYTHING into consideration (personal challenges and limiting beliefs, business experience or lack thereof, skills, fears, strengths and guided real-life practice). Nothing should be left to chance.

2. The Mother Of All Skills: Coach-Communication

There is another skill that is KEY to this entire process.

We call it the coach-communication skill.

Among other things it encompasses:

Active Listening
Goal Setting With Client
Holding Client Accountable
Asking Powerful Questions
Re-framing (Shifting Client’s Perspective)

These skills are vital to success in business. They should not only be learned but practiced. Later in this article you’ll see how we develop your entire discovery process to ensure you find your ideal niche, message and profitable funnel by leveraging the coach skill.

3. Refining Your Message (niche, offers, products, confidence)

Later in this article you’ll see how we develop your entire discovery process to ensure you find your ideal niche, message and profitable funnel by leveraging the coach skill.

Your Life Experiences, Insights & Personality Make You More Valuable Than You May Possibly Yet Imagine…

Align yourself with how you make your living & you’ll find yourself thriving in the New Economy!

Like most kids, I considered what I'd “be” when I grew up.

From a young age, I’ve been attracted to living with purpose.  This inspiration was continuously kindled by many cross-cultural sources of wisdom (from the Bible to the Bhagavad Gita, and other congruent sources I met with in between).

I resonated with their “common ground” message,


  • We get more when we look for MORE
  • We get less when we believe there is less
  • Giving and receiving are interconnected, as are we
  • Be the change you want to see

There are more, of course, but many overlap into a purposeful message:

"Your life matters & you CAN make a difference" 

This idea, valued throughout history, resonated with me when I was young, as it does now.

But, as many others have experienced, I struggled finding peace with this “knowing.”

I have always been passionate about life:

As I watched the news and images of war, hunger, and political propaganda over and over; I somehow felt, by age nine, one day I would do ‘something’ to help make it all make more sense.

The atrocities of our time ate at me.
