Turn Your Passion Into Profit - FREE Ebook, CD, Test

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 Coach. 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:

You can listen to a FREE audio CD of Walt's "Passion into Profit" lecture series by downloading it here:

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":

http://www.jamaicaninchina.com

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:

Senate Resolution on Saipan Island congratulates Walt Goodridge for his accomplishments and contributions to society:

What an impressive guy huh? Like I said, this is a guy you can learn a lot from.

Here are some photos of him when he was young. You can see the look of intelligence and ingenuity on his face.

Here is his interview posted on YouTube. He sounds so knowledgeable, passionate, aware and authentic. It's amazing. People like this are rare and one of a kind.

I'm writing this review of Walt Goodridge's "Turn Your Passion Into Profit" to post on Amazon.com, after receiving my paperback copy of it. You can get it at his website in multiple formats at: 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"

Steve Neese also read Walt's book and LOVED it! Check out this raving review he posted of it. It's right above mine.

http://www.amazon.com/review/R7G7DOBF52 ... deID=&tag=

"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!"

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.

What’s more important to you in your life, security or freedom? Think about it. That’s a question I usually ask at the beginning of my Turn Your Passion Into Profit Workshops. I believe it’s a very important and revealing question, and your answer will affect the unique challenges you will face as you turn your passion into profit, and , in fact, may determine if you’ll actually be successful at it! On Monday, October 8, 2012 at 8pm Eastern Time, I’ll be offering a FREE call-in, interactive seminar to explain what I mean, outline the Passion Profit philosophy and formula, and take questions. In case I have to “muteâ€￾ the call to cut down on background noise, your best bet is to send your questions in advance to questions@passionprofit.com, and I’ll answer as many as I can live during the call!
