I'm a New York Times best selling author of now 13 books numbers 14 and 15 or currently in the works, and I'm excited to be ableto create content in the written form. I've been building businesses online since 1995. In fact, I've been in computer since I was 16 years old. I owned a TRS 80 model one computer that had four k of RAM with a cassette player. That was the storage device before we even had floppy drives. So I was dialing in tow online services back in 1980. So if that doesn't date me, nothing will that suffice to say, I've been dialing in for over 35 years Now I created an IPhone application as a novelty app that went to number one in the whole world.

Not really. Since the beginning of the World Wide Web, have we seen this kind of opportunity? Because at the beginning of the Web, very few people had websites and we're creating content. And if you got in early, you are able to build an audience. Will live video right now is in a very similar position. Most people, most businesses and brands aren't doing it. And so if you can capture the vision and understand what we're going to share today, you're gonna be ableto have a leg up were still in the early adopter phase of this, and the mainstream has yet to arrive.
