Hi Everyone,

I'd like to introduce you all to an amazing and inspiring person that you will learn a lot of valuable information and lessons from. He is a Passionpreneur (a phrase he coined) who teaches people how to turn their "passion into profit" and live true to themselves. His name is Walt Goodridge, originally from Jamaica but grew up in New York, and is an Author, Traveler and SPAM BLOCK. He has written 20 books, many articles, runs a dozen profitable websites, conducts coaching seminars, been featured in many articles and magazines (including Time), and been interviewed by radio shows - which is very impressive.

This is a guy that you can learn a lot from. I've seen his books and listened to his interviews and will say that this guy is truly one-of-a-kind, genuine and highly spirited. His books contain a lot of fantastic useful advice for finding resourceful ways of doing what you love and making money from it. I would say they are a must read! I've looked through two of his books - "Turn Your Passion Into Profit" and "Living True to Yourself" and I would suggest starting with those.

Check out his websites, books, articles, interviews, free personality test and audio series at these main hub pages to his work:

And here you can take his FREE personality test to find out what type of role you are best suited for: (here was my result)

Here is his travel blog "Jamaican in China":

Walt and I have a lot in common. We are both online entrepreneurs, freethinkers, freedom junkies, and vegetarians. He is definitely a kindred spirit. I ought to try to travel around China with him next time he goes. He and I could be an Asian and Black passionpreneur duo, like Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in "Rush Hour". lol Anyway, I've been corresponding with him and we are going to try to help cross promote each other's website.

If you Google him, you will find a lot of third party sources praising him and his accomplishments, some of which contain interviews with him - all of which give him a lot of credibility. Some examples:

Time Magazine:

I am the only one who gets a kick out of the fact that Scepcop just made a post about the skeptics on this forum being paid shills and then goes ahead and makes a post which is basically a paid advertisement and he'll very likely get $back from clicks generated from this site?

Totally FALSE! I make zero money from advertising him. He is my friend and his message is one that I deeply believe in and live myself. That's why I'm promoting him without anything in it for me. His books are empowering, inspiring and transformative. There is nothing wrong with promoting something you believed in, as long as you truly believe in it.

That's totally different from being a paid shill out to suppress information to protect the interests of the establishment. Why are you mixing two things that have nothing to do with each other? That's totally illogical.

Btw, even if my friend Walt did have an affiliate program (which he doesn't), it would be based on commission from sales, not clicks. So much for your knowledge of internet marketing. :P

Oh speaking of his book, I just got the paperback version of it and wrote up this raving review of it on Amazon.com. You can get it at his website: http://www.passionprofit.com

http://www.amazon.com/Turn-Your-Passion ... 593&sr=8-1

"I recently received my paperback copy of Walt Goodridge's "Turn Your Passion Into Profit" book. I must say it was better than I expected. The book is easy to read, fun, interesting, witty, inspiring, motivating and makes you see things in a way you never thought of before. It's not just a how-to guide, but a guide on transformation in consciousness. As you read it, you feel inspired - like suddenly you feel and sense a world of possiblities you never knew existed. This is the kind of book that is priceless. It's not just a book, it's like an "experience", one that you have to sit down and go through to understand what I mean.

Goodridge truly has a gift of teaching and guiding in this area. He takes a difficult, complex and broad subject and handles it like a Zen master, using simplicity and elegance to convey his teachings and guidance in everyday layman's terms. I'm quite impressed, and it takes a lot to impress me.

While reading this book, it seems apparent that Goodridge was made for this role of Passionpreneur teacher, kind of like how people say that David Carradine was made for the Kwai Chang Kane role in the "Kung Fu" series, and Kevin Costner was made for his role in "Dances with Wolves". Likewise, Walt Goodridge was made to be a Passionpreneur guide, teaching people how to turn their passions into portable businesses one can live off of. He is like the "Kwai Chang Kane" of the Passionpreneur lifestyle. When you see this book, you will understand why.

This is not just a practical how-to guide, it guides you in transforming your consciousness to another level, where you are better able to manifest your wishes and desires. I think this is important, and what other books about starting your own business lack. You see, for the law of attraction to work for you, and for the universe to begin helping you, you've got to operate from a higher plane of consciousness which allows it all to come into possibility. True change begins within, and that's where Walt starts. That's what makes this book special compared to others. I know that might sound a bit New Ageish, but it's true. I've experienced this in my own life, as a successful self-employed "Passionpreneur" myself, so I know what it takes to become one.

Walt is one of the few gifted writers who understands this inner transformation one must go through to change one's life, because he too, has had to undergo a transformation in consciousness in order to live a life of freedom, authenticity and abundance. You see, changing your life is more than just about doing practical how-to steps in the physical world. One must move from a state of being locked in fear and limitation into one of abundance, possibility. That requires a transformation in consciousness, for true freedom begins in the mind. At that point, the inner change will manifest into the outer.

Walt has a gift for helping people in this area. He was tailor made for this role. This book is his best work. And it's a MUST HAVE for sure. I tend to be very skeptical and cynical about things, so for me to praise something, it's gotta be really good for sure. And this book definitely fits the bill.

Every page is filled with motivation and wisdom which helps you to discover yourself, your true potential, who you really are, and how you can awaken to an empowering truer, more meaningful and more authentic life. I liked how Walt used analogies from the film "Shawshank Redemption" with Morgan Freeman, a great masterpiece film, and explained how the lessons from it apply to our lives.

After corresponding with him, I would say that Walt is one of the most awakened people I've ever talked to. While most people in the world are energy leeches and vampires who suck the energy out of you, Walt is one of the few that radiate energy and give it to help others, for he draws his from some "cosmic source" of abundance, rather than from ego or illusion. That makes him a lot more authentic than most people I've met.

You've all heard the saying, "Do what you love. The money will follow." Well this book is the epitome of that. Once you read it, you will understand more than ever the wisdom behind that saying. It's true in more ways than you might think. You see, if you only live to work, then you don't have a true purpose in life. The most authentic lifestyle is to follow your passion, and make a living while doing that. That is the TRUE way to live true to yourself and live freely. This book will help you do that, in many ways.

So anyway, if you are tired of living a robotic life working for others as a slave to make a living, and looking for other alternatives and answers, then get this book. It's inexpensive and priceless. It is truly life changing and transformative, as well as a masterpiece work of inspiration. Even if you've already begun your journey of awakening, this book will help bridge the gap between your new awakening and the steps you can take to manifest your inner changes into your everyday life that will allow you to live in freedom, abundance, authenticity and passion.

If that sounds like you, then this book could be the catalyst that marks the turning point in your life, and the next stage in your evolution of being as well.

Thanks for reading my review which comes straight from the heart.

Sincerely,
Winston Wu
Author of Happier Abroad"

Hi all,
Here is an interview between me and Walt featured in his newsletter. Hope you find it interesting.

http://www.waltgoodridge.com/archives/newsletter6.html

Message from Walt

Today, we continue our "interview by a skeptic" series with questions for me from Winston "The Debunker" Wu, of HappierAbroad, Intellectual Expat, and DebunkingSkeptics . First, however, here are a few announcements:

• 7 Conversations to Freedom, the free ebook available on the passionprofit.com site, has been reformatted, edited and expanded and is now available for Kindle e-reader. Check it out for $0.99cents at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00750LALQ

• Want to share THIS edition of the Achievable Freedom Newsletter, tweet or share on facebook or your favorite network? Direct your friends to this link http://www.waltgoodridge.com/archives/newsletter6.html or http://tinyurl.com/7wo4nf3

Freedom to Profit: What's the book about?

WINSTON THE DEBUNKER asks:Is your Turn Your Passion Into Profit book more about starting a traditional business or an online business? Many of my HappierAbroad.com readers are interested in making money line, generating passive incomes, or doing freelance work, so that they could live overseas. So that would appeal to them.

THE SHORT ANSWER:
(1) It's first about clarifying the concept that underlies the business (i.e. clarifying the product or service the business should be based on--your passion/talent/hobby... AND

(2) since the whole underlying concept of my life and message is freedom, even the products I suggest and recommend are always those that have the potential to be marketed remotely and passively. I rarely, if ever, suggest a brick and mortar business.

(3) I also have two supplemental manuals, The Turn Your Passion into Profit Quickstart Manual and Websites That Sell that focus additionally on setting up and mastering the online side of things. I follow the Robert G. Allen's Multiple Streams of Income Philosophy for what makes the perfect business, so less employees (as in zero) is key, and mobility and freedom is built into my philosophy and formula. Check out all the books and what versions (Kindle, paperback, audio) are available at http://www.waltgoodridge.com/books-websites/

Freedom to Escape: Why New York??? Aren't you free to escape?

WINSTON THE DEBUNKER asks: ...I am wondering, why didn't you just go live overseas like in Saipan or China? Why stay in NY? Isn't it expensive to live there? Isn't it best to live in a place where cost of living is cheaper and where values are less materialistic? I mean, don't you want to set your business on auto-pilot, so you can just travel perpetually? Isn't that your dream? Why aren't you doing that now?

THE SHORT ANSWER: Absolutely! I do, in fact, plan to return to China! I've been living on Saipan for the past 6 years. I only came to New York in September because of a family matter. I wasn't planning on staying, but one thing led to another and now I'm "stuck"--(albeit pleasantly and willingly!--hint) But, I'm hating the cold, and the general unfriendliness. If it weren't for certain "compelling motivations," I'd be out of here in a New York minute!

The business is pretty much already on auto. I have that freedom now. That's what made the 6 months in China possible. However, every now and then, I need to stop and focus and tweak some things. For example, the whole publishing industry is changing VERY rapidly right now! Once I got the Kindle/Nook bug, as I do now, it's better for me to be in one place with a reliable internet connection and some consistency (here in NY, for instance), converting, uploading, tweaking, re-uploading all hours of the night and morning to get everything in order. Then next, I need to focus on marketing the Kindle/Nook editions (basically, learning a whole new paradigm and strategy) to get things up to a certain level of exposure and sales.

So, as much as I hate the cold, this stay in New York has been great in that regard. The cold weather keeps me inside and I've gotten so much done that I may not have been able to if I were traveling, or even if I were on Saipan.

Now--since Dec--I've been promoting 10 titles at the same time on both Kindle and Nook platforms as well as paperback formats. First there was the tedious manual conversions of each book to kindle format, then to Nook, then to Smashwords for one title in particular.

Then, there was
- writing press releases for each book (10)
- submitting to dozens of press release distribution sites one at a time each press release individually to dozens of sites
- writing articles that reference each book (10)
- submitting articles to article distribution sites one at a time
- posting on forums
- commenting on news articles
- finding blogs and emailing reviewers one by one
- contacting book clubs
- emailing/faxing stores (for paperback editions of all books)

However, the Kindle sales are already building slowly and are on track to surpass the paperback sales, and once I'm past this initial inertia stage, it'll probably be Spring, and I planto head back to China! So, the last year and a half has looked like this: 6 months in China, 6 months on Saipan, and now it looks like I'll be 6 months in New York, before returning to Saipan and then China-- on auto pilot again!

Freedom to Age Less: Why are you vegan?

WINSTON THE DEBUNKER asks: Why are you a vegan? What is wrong with milk and dairy products? I read up on it and the conclusion was that everything should be in moderation and that as long as you aren't lactose intolerant, it's ok to consume some dairy products. Isn't that true? It's hard to be a strict vegan. If you are vegetarian at least you can order a cheese pizza or scrambled eggs or an omelet.

THE SHORT ANSWER:
1. I'm vegan because I want to age less and live longer. I don't eat anything animal- derived. No meat, no fish, no eggs, no dairy, no cheese...and also no sodas, no coffee, nothing in cans, nothing in plastic bottles (a few exceptions)...and for the record, fish are not vegetables. I am healthier and more energetic not eating animal flesh (perhaps you can interview my ladies, hee hee). Poison in moderation is still poison. and a "moderate" gunshot wound to the head might still be fatal, don't you think? :-)

2. As far as what's wrong with milk and dairy, check out http://www.notmilk.com

3. When you say "the conclusion was..," whose conclusion was that? Was it yours? Was it the dairy council of milk sellers, or a study funded by them, perhaps? The basic premise of what I teach in How to Reverse Aging is that you are your own authority.

Here's an excerpt: "Furthermore, the flaw in using that word "science"--as it is used in our society--is that it puts the entire conversation and power into the hands of others who are presumably more qualified to find answers. In other words, since we average people in our society do not consider ourselves "scientists," it becomes necessary for us to wait for the scientists to research, prove and validate all of our decisions. However, once you realize that scientists are themselves flawed humans--men and women--with their own gender and cultural biases, religious and political leanings, world views, personality disorders, cognitive shortcomings, often linear (rather than wholistic) ways of thinking, as well as distortions or method and reporting that are subject to corruption by greed, prestige and the interests and the dictates of the state and/or the highest bidder, then you realize the fatal--yes, literally fatal--flaw of giving control of your health to "science" and scientists.

Further in the interview, I responded to another question: Fasting means no food. Only water. Perhaps a few times a year, I might do a 7-10 day lemonade fast/cleanse based on this book: http://themastercleanse.com/master-clea ... -cleanser/

Next week, Winston asks: Have you tried it? How did it feel? There are so many ways to detoxify yourself out there. How do you know which one to use?

Check out this new interview with Walt Goodridge on BlogTalkRadio. He makes a good point that in order to become self-employed, you have to think outside the box and adjust to a different wavelength and zone than others, which means that you might lose friends in the process.

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/arippleeff ... ple-effect

Description:

A wealth of knowledge and anecdotes, Walt shares success stories about people who've done it, as well as the strategies and concepts necessary to adapt in order to duplicate the same success.

Walt is the author of more than 20 books and audio products--all self-published--and "escaped" from America to live on a tropical island in the Pacific. He travels the world and blogs about it in his award-nominated blog, "Jamaican in China!" In other words, Walt walks and lives his talk, being himself... a full-time "passionpreneur" and "nomadpreneur" (both phrases he coined) while helping others to achieve the same freedom!

Passion to profit is taking what you love to do and generating income. Learn from an expert, ways to turn your hobbie or favorite skill, a means to earn income or build a business.

Join us, call in, listen, and tell your friends. Share stories about moments and other people who changed or challenged your lives. Listen to and possibly learn from these stories about happy, hurtful, courageous, challenging, and embarrassing experiences that had a lasting impression and a ripple effect.

I don't think that I am an official passionpeneur until I read the book, which I am seriously considering buying. Right now I'm enjoying the movie "Godzilla" due to three free months of "Showtime" that I scored today thanks to Walter.

I took his personality test and IMO it was "on the money".

As SCEPCOP said:
His books are empowering, inspiring and transformative.

From what I heard in his highlights, if his books are only half as enjoyable and insightful as the audio and videos that I watched/listened to today, he's a winner. I must say, I liked this guy a lot.

Check out Walt's new website for his new book "Living True to Yourself", available in multiple formats.

http://www.livingtruetoyourself.com

I've read it and highly recommend it. It is VERY empowering, motivating and inspiring. It's also a spiritual book as well, with many awakening concepts that are in line with my article as well: http://www.happierabroad.com/Awakening.htm

It's the kind of book that aligns your consciousness with your will, so that you can live more freely and consciously, in accord with who you are and whatever your calling is. It also identifies social and psychological traps that we've fallen into, so that they no longer pose a hindrance to us.

I would definitely put this book in the MUST READ category. It's the kind of book that changes lives.

In addition, Walt has revamped his websites with Wordpress. They look a lot better now. Check them out:

All his audio interviews are now hosted on one easy to follow page.

Me and my friend Steve both posted raving reviews on Amazon for Walt's book "Turn Your Passion into Profit". You can get it at his website in multiple formats at: http://www.passionprofit.com

Here is mine:

http://www.amazon.com/Turn-Your-Passion ... 593&sr=8-1

"This is not your typical fluff and puff, September 10, 2012
By steve55
This review is from: Turn Your Passion Into Profit (Paperback)
Ive seen a lot of motivational books (such as Tony Robbins stuff) and this one is VERY different. What you don't get is the typical fluff and puff of most motivational writings that only temporarily make you feel inspired yet leaving the reader with not knowing really how to apply it. This author actually describes the "HOW TO" in coming up with your own passion ideas for making an income stream based off what you know and what you are passionate about. This is the KEY difference.He describes the step by step process and even shows how he markets his books too. I haven't seen other motivational books that do that. This author is very direct, real and down to earth which is what I think makes him so credible. Its real life common sense stuff that he teaches you how to act on and a lot of "make sense" philosophical creeds" to go along with it all. I give this book the highest possible recommendation. It can be a life changer to those who read it!"

Let's see. . .judging by his photos I'm doubting this guy has hit his mid-30's and yet he's got tons of books. videos, etc. to go. . .

First things first. . . 90% of what he's going to say will be found in the Dale Carnegie books as well as Science of Mind and various aspects of basic psychology. Sorry, but snake oil is still snake oil and this "self-help" type jazz typically helps only one person; the dude selling the shit. I was in it with Terry Cole-Whitaker, Louise Hay, Tony Robbins and a myriad of others over the years including the most recent incarnation THE SECRET, which is nearly word for word what Hay & Marianne Williamson taught, just with the accent on "attraction" vs. "self-creation".

Yes, I am judging a book by its cover; I've been around this stuff for far too many years to not have this particular reflex. I am a professional Psychic, after all and a former Carney and Public Speaker, Team Building and all that other related jazz e.g. I'm a skeptic whenever anyone offers a magic pill that will fix it all for you . . . no such thing exists. What does exist are the statistics. . .

Typically you'll see a big evangelic styled start-up such as we see in Winston's hype; there will be a truck load of folks that read the first book and maybe the second who have had their lives transformed. This placebo effect is normal and unless the author of this elixir follows through with more bread crumbs, fewer than 10% of those that started will still be actively using the tools six months later. Tony Robbins has all kinds of Challenge Weekends and courses for advancement each costing a few thousand dollars more than the first and suckers willingly cough it up because, like a high school pep rally, it jazzes them up and helps them accept a sense of new confidence -- its proactive psychology; you walked across the hot coals without fear so you can do anything. . . you jumped out of a perfectly good aircraft so you can do more . . . the list goes on and on. Tony makes millions a year because he understood how to perpetuate the hype and use that energy as a vehicle that serves him and his personal goals -- to get filthy freak'n rich.

This is the same sort of thing L. Ron Hubbard exploited when he wrote Dianetics and the whole Scientology concept. . . which was a bar bet initially. Yet, it is likewise a CULT and depending on who you're talking to, it may very well be a dangerous predatory cult. Not all such fellowships are "dark" but at their heart, they are manipulative money grabbing machines that bring homage to one key figure or worse, a book :roll:

I can only extend a word of warning for anyone taking a curious venture into this material; make certain you keep grounded and not overly lured in with what is offered. A lot of it will seem logical and practical as well as viable -- it is! It's been taught for centuries by philosophers, mystics and prophets but it's still the same thing, can't change that. Understand though, someone is exploiting these things and in turn exploiting YOU. So please don't get into the ritual of buying more and more stuff and getting sucked into a potentially dangerous situation. Just evaluate the following and do so regularly. . .

Internal Control: Amount of internal political and social power exercised by leader(s) over members; lack of clearly defined organizational rights for members.

External Control: Amount of external political and social influence desired or obtained; emphasis on directing members’ external political and social behavior.

Wisdom/Knowledge Claimed by leader(s); amount of infallibility declared or implied about decisions or doctrinal/scriptural interpretations; number and degree of unverified and/or unverifiable credentials claimed.

Wisdom/Knowledge Credited to leader(s) by members; amount of trust in decisions or doctrinal/scriptural interpretations made by leader(s); amount of hostility by members towards internal or external critics and/or towards verification efforts.

Dogma: Rigidity of reality concepts taught; amount of doctrinal inflexibility or “fundamentalism;” hostility towards relativism and situationalism.

Recruiting: Emphasis put on attracting new members; amount of proselytizing; requirement for all members to bring in new ones.

Front Groups: Number of subsidiary groups using different names from that of main group, especially when connections are hidden.

Wealth: Amount of money and/or property desired or obtained by group; emphasis on members’ donations; economic lifestyle of leader(s) compared to ordinary members.

Sexual Manipulation of members by leader(s) of non-tantric groups; amount of control exercised over sexuality of members in terms of sexual orientation, behavior, and/or choice of partners.

Sexual Favoritism: Advancement or preferential treatment dependent upon sexual activity with the leader(s) of non-tantric groups.

Censorship: Amount of control over members’ access to outside opinions on group, its doctrines or leader(s).

Dropout Control: Intensity of efforts directed at preventing or returning dropouts.

Violence: Amount of approval when used by or for the group, its doctrines or leader(s).

Paranoia: Amount of fear concerning real or imagined enemies; exaggeration of perceived power of opponents; prevalence of conspiracy theories.

Grimness: Amount of disapproval concerning jokes about the group, its doctrines or its leader(s).

Surrender of Will: Amount of emphasis on members not having to be responsible for personal decisions; degree of individual disempowerment created by the group, its doctrines or its leader(s).

Hypocrisy: amount of approval for actions which the group officially considers immoral or unethical, when done by or for the group, its doctrines or leader(s); willingness to violate the group’s declared principles for political, psychological, social, economic, military, or other gain.

I have used this guide for close to 30 years now, when I speak to groups about potentially Dangerous Cults, how they operate and how to identify the shysters starting such things up. As I said earlier, I don't know for certain where things stand but in my experience if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck. . . well, chances are pretty darn strong that it is a duck. :mrgreen:

What the blazes are you talking about Craig? You are barking up the wrong tree. This has NOTHING to do with any cults. You have no right to say that, esp since you never read his books or listened to his interviews. This is about empowering yourself and taking back your power and liberating yourself of fear and social traps. Nothing wrong with that. It helps people and transforms them, esp in their consciousness. There is nothing cultish about it at all.

I challenge you to write a book to help people and see if you get even a tenth of the raving reviews that Walt has gotten. On Amazon.com, he has plenty of 5 star reviews from genuine people. You can't match that. All you can do is BS and mislead people by seeing something that's not there. Dang, you clearly are delusional.
