  1. Hey Sean,

    Looking forward to the follow up videos and the information that you will reveal. Also looking forward to putting it into practice and starting to earn a little extra, to start off with, and then eventually replacing my income.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers,

    Pete
    .-= Pete´s last blog ..peteboyr: @bullhunter Thanks, Sean. Just reviewing the webinar, and will get to your blogs after that. Big night ahead, pizza on the way! =-.

  2. Hello Sean,

    I have the same mindset and passion you are talking about here but not the same results…. It’s something missing and you’ve just made me realise this! Getting hooot…!

    Talk soon!

  3. I need an electrician to do a few chores around my place, Sean, and I can’t send an SMS either. I like the content but this video would have been preferable as an audio. There’s too much background noise.

  4. Another audio, please, Sean, the sooner the better as we can put the instruction into practice.

  5. Hi Sean, I watched this video in 2009…happy to refresh my memory, thank you

  6. Hi Sean,
    I know Replacing Your Income Online will entail some serious work but I am willing to put the time in to achieve that result
    .-= Rita pepper´s last blog ..Learn and Earn =-.

  7. Thanks for sharing your story Sean. It really sets the foundation and inspires us to push our limits, and set empowering online goals.

  8. Yes, time…..children, home, work, study…just keeping the focus of why I’m doing this. I do know that I love doing this, and that’s such an important part of the equation.

  9. Hi Sean,

    I would love to be able to replace my income online and I’m working really hard trying to make it happen. I’m really looking forward to the next video in this series and the next seven weeks.

    I’m hoping that I’ll be able to work out which pieces of the puzzle I’m missing. Hopefully by the time the competition is over, I’ll have worked out exactly what I need to do to start generating an income online.

  11. Dennis Carr says:

    Cmon Sean, couldnt send an SMS.
    I have had many roadblocks too and lost more money than I could earn in 10years at worsley.I will be giving the internet a shot now after the option market has repeatedly beaten me. Will be looking forward to see your blueprint.
    Cmon, no website or products. We will see.
    I do have an open mind and am passionate about achieving results.
    Will be anxiously waiting, Dennis Carr

    • Hi Dennis
      Indeed, I couldn’t send an SMS in 2005. As soon as someone showed me how, I knew how. It took 2 minutes to learn. The thing is that I had never had the need to do it and never bothered learning.
      That’s no more than the same hurdle everyone faces in society – and that most people use as an excuse; “I haven’t done that before!”

    • Jayne Pleysier says:

      My brother-in-law recently introduced me to options. After the initial excitement, Paper Trading has been awful and I had to be true and realise my heart wasnt 100% in it and I was wanting to spend the time on my websites…….go where the heart is!

  12. I watched this video back in 2009 but am always open to refreshing options and it is just what I need to motivate me instead of promising myself that I will get around to doing more.
    .-= Isa´s last blog ..Get Your Life Back! =-.

  13. Being able to replace your income online by grabbing a spare hour here and there over a 24 month period shows true dedication. Congratulations on turning your passion into reality and coming good on your promise to your electrician workmates.

  14. G’day Sean,
    Replacing Your Income Online.

    Very Powerful video this one. The real power I feel is the statement ” NO PRODUCT, NO WEBSITE, NO MONEY ” and the statement of how your family is the most important thing in your life. I’m sure they love to hear such loving statements.

    Having listened to you for the best part of a year and knowing a bit about motivation, I was surprised to hear you say that even though success was in your dreams, you didn’t think you’d ever be there. Goes to show that mindset and concentrating on your goals is strong and powerful enough to overcome your doubts. Great !

    I’m hoping my results will be on their way in the not too distant future. Been brave enough to state in the forum a few weeks back, that by the Bootcamp in October I’ll be earning $ 2000 monthly from all my varied YOTA activities.

    Replacing Your Income Online – You said it’s easy with the right knowledge.

    Cheers

      Nice comment Harry. There’s more to learn here than what’s on the cover eh? The word ‘inspiration’ comes to mind. GH

  15. Very intriguing lead in to the video series, can’t wait to see the next one. Determination and persistance, a dream and goals – I’m looking forward to the journey over the next 7 weeks and beyond. Thanks for the opportunity to be involved.

  16. Hi Sean,
    That is a powerful video. You are at a level where your marketing abilities are growing exponentially. So to take the time (which is all we have really) is a show of tremendous character, to give back, to share this knowledge. Let`s all spread the word to get more people involved. Well done Sean and family.

  17. These videos are the first videos that gave me instruction and hope when I first started out! I learned how to actually start a blog with them and as you can see from this comment I actually have a website up. It was baby steps to get my own domain and website set up but these videos were where it all started! They will give a step by step and pretty much guide you by the hand which is what a newbie (me) at the time needed! This was about 3 months ago and my site is up and running with ads and all! All thanks to Sean! Keep watching!

    What’s that saying .. “slow and steady wins the race ” Liked the honest remark about how long it took you to start making a regular income.
    So, I’m revving up my passion and planning on being able to make money online.

  19. geoff harnden says:

    WOW!!!! man that was AMAZING!!!!! Accountability to oneself and to everyone else.
    Passion. Commitment. The whole gamut is all in that video. I discovered you some time ago… seed wasn’t ready then. Germinating big time now. Absolutely awesome video. And yes, what’s an SMS? GH

  20. Hi Sean , Thanks for the video. I am already working at doing the things you are recommending. Looking forward to the day I can replace my income online.

    Thank you for sharing your secrets. Doctor Bill

  21. Thanks for the reminder Sean. Good to remember that patience and perseverence are keys to the “making money on line”. Also good to hear that you started as the rest of us are – with busy lives and little time. I look forward to all you have to offer.

  22. Hi Sean,
    I want to replace my income and I know I will in time. I’m in the best place to be able to achieve that goal. I’ll be learning during the competition and by being a member of the YOTA Forum.

    I do understand there is a lot to learn and I am willing to take the time and learn at my own pase. I am enjoying being here and commenting on the blogs. All the reading of your articles is a fantastic way to be learning.

  23. Hi Sean,

    What caught my attention the most, I think, was your openness about where you were at, what you were up against (in your own belief systems) and what you did about them. Deciding what you wanted to do; filling yourself with so many deep deep reasons to give you the oomph to get through the hurdles; to draw on your passions as inspiration – all these seem to be the keys to success in any venture of life. You inspire me daily to achieve more than I did the day before, and for that I thank you.

  24. Hi Sean,
    To replace my income on line will be a very welcome achievment. This will only happen if I am prepared to spend the time to learn what you have to teach us.

    We are so lucky to have you to help us navigate around the roadblocks.

  25. Jayne Pleysier says:

    Was great watching this video again and picking up on points previously missed when I watched it. Information is great, relevant and important and it is great to start this journey by refocusing my motivation and setting goals to focus on my family which is why i want to succeed with this. Having experienced the “Bushy End of the Pineapple” πŸ™‚ this is a fresh start and I really thankyou for providing this opportunity over the next 7 weeks.

  26. hey sean i felt this video to the core of my soul !! because it represents my current situation! in this case i am currently an administrative support officer in the mining industry.. but i have decided to let go off that and pursue my passion in doing music.. as an indie dancehall/ reggae artiste i have basically over the past few yrs liaised with enough ppl in the industry, networked with other artistes, linked with promoters tour managers etc and created a network & fan base worldwide so i am now at the point where i must now let go and plunge into my destiny into being full-time artiste/musician.. u mentioned having no option.. and thats it for me.. there is none!!.. no huge money put aside to secure a financial stability for me or my family now will there be a steady 9 to 5 job. Therefore, my only choice is to utilize the tools and resources ie: the networks, fans,the social networks, internet, radios etc. i have now, while going forward to achieve my goals i set out to accomplish. u mention the motivation u had, spurred by the love of your family.. this is the same thing that drives me.. that take me to new heights in myself, pushing me to levels i never knew i could go to achieve things i never thought i could.. its what keeps my fire burning thru the disappointments and failures to be able to go back to the drawing board!.. its the same element that keeps new ideas coming.. its the same thing that brought me to this webinar! .. so u see i can relate to all that you have said in the video earlier, irrespective of the different field we are in and the different goals we aspire to achieve.. bottom-line is; .. believe in your DREAMS and your ability to achieve them!!… while bearing in mind the greater purpose of helping those around you by what you are doing … and that’s what i think will bring the greatest joy, happiness contentment and ultimate fulfilment! .. thanx again for the video Sean, im looking forward to see the next 6 videos for the “blueprint” to successfully creating online income!!

    • Hi Rohan
      If I can get you across the line to make a definite decision to accept only success for you and your family, then that is huge reward for me.
      Chase your dreams mate! They are yours and they are waiting for you.

      • Trish Rock says:

        Rohan congratulations πŸ™‚ Only the brave can step into the unknown and say-well, I’m here, there will be no excuses now, I will succeed.
        I too have given my self “no option” but to succeed (of course there are always J.O.B.S that would be available but to know that you would be letting yourself down keeps you from that) and its a very great experience!
        Do you realise how strong your conviction to this is? I can see it and I have a strong knowing that you will get all you are wishing for πŸ™‚
        Here is a book I would recommend reading-Warren A. Henningson-If I can you can. Its extremely uplifting and helpful and brings into a different light how wonderful it is to have the “no options” attitude!
        Good luck to you and hope to read of some of your successes soon <3

  27. It’s great to be watching these videos again.

    What really comes across is how honest, passionate and sincere Sean is. There is no hype, no special deals, spend big to succeed or advertisements to buy this product NOW, just a sincere wish to help those around him and show everyone how they can start their Internet Marketing journey.

    Sean, it’s been a real pleasure this last year and I look forward to many more years.

  28. Hi Sean, I’m looking forward to learning how I can replace a six figure income with no product, no website, no money, especially if I can do it in a shorter time than 23 months. Bring it on!

  29. Hey Sean – I hadn’t seen this video on replacing your income online before. Good stuff – looking forward to more of them. Missed the first webinar on Monday but plan on watching now! Thanks.

    This is what I want. I want to build an income online so that my husband and I can live quite comfortably while he goes to school to do what he’s always wanted to do. I just want to have my little new age shop and make my jewelry and not have to worry if it’s going to make enough money because my online income takes care of all of it.

  31. Kelly Wilson says:

    I came into this competition not knowing if internet marketing was for me, and thinking that I would just dip my toes for 7 weeks to see if I liked it. This video has really sparked my interest, and I am really looking forward to the other videos. I am a stay at home mum, so I have the perfect opportunity to build a business from home in a short amount of time, as I do not have to go out and work a 5 day week. Very exciting!

  32. I have watched this video series before but must not have been ready to listen. I am now 100% fully committed to being an internet marketer and replacing my husbands income online so he too can be at home with his family.

  33. I had seen this before – but obviously didn’t let it sink in! So am keen to see the follow up – the no product, website etc is very intriguing!

  34. Sean

    It was great to revisit the video and reinforce the learning.

    It’s so easy to get distracted and forget the basics. The end game has to be kept in sight all the time

    Thanks for the reminder and I am sure there is lots of people that will benefit from the lessons

    Great video Sean! Actually, at the beginning you seemed a bit shy so I thought it may have been a video you did many years ago but then I saw the date and listened and, no, not shy πŸ™‚
    I believe all excuses are equal and with so many great teachers coming into my life I have a ‘lesser fear’ of facing any fears and getting out of my comfort zone. I know this 7 weeks with you is going to push me and will eventually ‘push’ me over the line!
    I cant thank you enough and I’m looking forward to the next videos πŸ™‚

  37. So inspirational! To learn how to replace my income with Internet Marketing like Sean has would be nothing short of life changing and is but a dream for most. I have been learning about Internet Marketing for almost a year now but have little results. Hopefully Sean will be the one to set me in the right direction! : )

  38. Being able to replace my current income with an online business is definitely my major goal as well.

    Watched the video and thought it looked familiar, then I remembered getting a cd some time back, wasn’t motivated enough and put it on the shelf! Now I have no money, as I am unemployed, no website, as I don’t know how, and no product! But I am now motivated!!

  40. Great video Sean and I really need to get stuck into doing instead of thinking about doing. One can watch videos, read text, but nothing changes without the ‘doing’. That terrible word ‘procrastination’. The how to overcome procrastination is in the excitement that your teaching motivates in one and that is worth its weight in gold. Here I am ready and able to get into the swing of things.

  41. Christopher Steiner says:

    This is great stuff Sean. There are not many people out there giving away this sort of information for free!
    I think many people are going to be inspired to do something because you can now show them away to make money without money! Only effort, that’s all it takes!
    I will be giving it my best to achieve my goals. Thank you……

  42. Brenda McNutt says:

    Thanks for the second video so soon. It’s a teaser though, because I just can’t wait for the next video to get started on something.

  43. Another video with a great philosophy on getting your goals acted upon.
    I agree making your goals, deadlines or outcomes public for something you really want to do or achieve. It puts the pressure on yourself, as no one really wants to fail at something they said they would do.
    This competition is a classic example of that!
    I’m wondering if it’s in someways one of the lessons we should learn?
    Set your manageable goals up with a time frame that can be done and make it public for all to see!
    It would help in keeping the passion alive for what you want to do to or achieve!
    When the passion is dwindling, that’s when you need to think about what it is going to achieve in the long run. With each little step, your getting closer! That should spur you on! It does for me anyway.

    • Letting others know your intentions is a great way to hold yourself accountable Duncan, then follow it up with action and commitment until those goals are achieved πŸ˜‰

  44. Hey Sean,

    Tell you what?? It’s a booo for people who ignored the invitations to join this worthy cause to learn and earn. I’m glad I did and can proudly tell everyone now that I have that same passion as you. After watching this video I have already set my Goal and am inspired to replace my income online despite of obstacles and road blocks as you said. With the trust i now have in you to help me achieve my goals, I know I’m in the right place.

    And yeah with No Product, No Website & No Money and with 20-40 mins of lecture from you, what am I waiting for??..Bring on the next video Sean!!!

    I am truly motivated!!

    Thanks Sean

  45. Nothing gets my blood flowing faster than hearing someone tell me I can make money on the Internet without a product, without a website and with no investment of money on my part. Actually, I’m a strong believer in this concept. What you need most though is the discipline and it seems that you certainly had that discipline in your early days in order to develop your procedures. I like the fact that you were willing to put your reputation on the line by publicly stating that you were going to become a successful Internet marketer and then persevering until you accomplished your goal.

  47. Christian K. says:

    Sean, this is inspiring. Really, I do think what you did in 23 month is amazing (who wouldn’t, haha). But what you do now is great too… You inspire people, hopefully make some of them able to maybe do the same as you did, and in return you get good publicity… If your way is possible for everyone out there, that would means lots and lots of people can be lead to a better life, empowering themselves… The the thought of the possibilities of united, self empowered people all around the world, taking care of one another is one of my most precious. Hopefully we’ll see that day soon. Now I’m going to watch part 2 of the series…

    All the best,

  48. Leo Bookham says:

    Hi Sean,

    Thank you for opening up to us and telling us how you started out in the beginning of your journey. l always admire the person who first built the road for the rest of us to just follow to hopefully achieve similiar results. l can certainly relate to your goal of doing it for your family. Thank you for the inspiration.

  49. I don’t believe I can earn a living on line, I know that I can.
    I know that it will happen because I am learning from someone that is doing it.

    I too left my job having replaced my income through trading options. That took 3 years of hours and hours of study, nights, weekends, many workshops and lots of cups of coffee. I also have a family and worked full time a long way from home. I wanted to go to sleep at 9pm every night but would push myself to go and watch a training video or practice on a simulated account, usually eventually falling asleep at the computer!

    Deriving income from one source only is not in my plan. The Stock Market goes up and down and different strategies are needed, but it is a great first step.

    When I left my JOB last year I said I will never go back. I have burned my bridges to that life of soul destroying drudgery. I will succeed at creating several streams of income and I am doing it thanks to you Sean. Thankyou for being courageous and burning your bridges. You are a true role model.
    .-= Elly´s last blog .. =-.

  50. Your success Sean is greatly enhanced by your wonderful generosity in sharing your journey with others. What makes you a genuine person well worth following is that you are prepared to make these seven weeks a freebie for all who make the effort.

  51. Tara McGhee says:

    Sean from this video I am picking up a formula:
    1. Set a GOAL – make it public, make yourself accountable
    2. Get emotional about that goal – you need to FEEL it and get PASSIONATE
    3. Take ACTION!
    I too have left the daily grind of a JOB. I have decided to be an entrepreneur. Most of my friends and work colleagues don’t understand what I am doing but the true ones don’t need to but are supportive. Like the people participating in this challenge, I am determined. I am coachable and trainable. I will succeed. I thank you in advance for your contribution to this and the value you are providing. To all the people sharing this journey, I wish you all the success you desire and can’t wait to share the stories!

      I’d like to comment on your George Sheehan message. I mostly have a great problem believing in the person I’m MEANT to be. So thank you very much and if you don’t mind I’ll take it on board.

  52. Yes, the online virtual space is full of potential to make wonders. I can’t imagine a life without my computers and Internet. I am sure I will in Cloud 9 if one day the Internet is making big money for me as well and I will be financially independent with a flexible life.

  58. I’m really looking forward to the upcoming videos Sean. I was most inspired by your comment that if we work with the same passion and dedication that you had when you built your IM business, we could achieve similar in results in 4-5 months from now. Imagine if everyone participating in this competition hit their financial goals by Christmas – now that would be a stimulus bonus worth getting excited about!

  59. Nice video Sean, I heard you speak live about this – the dedication of your spare time over an almost 2 year time frame, to replace your income online. I also have the same driving passion for my family & our sponsor kids, which I know will get me to my own success point of income replacement in the near future – I simply need to focus more in one direction, instead of scattering my resources (time & money) in too many areas at once as I have done over the last 12 months.. BUT, I have certainly learnt A LOT!!

    You couldn’t send an sms – I barely knew what a ‘blog’ was, let alone know how to set one up, until I finally UNDERSTOOD HOW last year, thanks largely to your help. πŸ™‚ I also know now that it’s better to take lots of small steps & get things set up right from the start, than taking giant leaps, missing important info on the way & then having to back-track & fix mistakes. In desperation to try & QUICKLY replace my J.O.B, I’ve been there, done that & it’s sooooooooooo frustrating, when I could have simply paid more attention to detail as I started!..

    Live & learn, there is ALWAYS another opportunity just around the corner & it’s never too late to be great!! Cheers πŸ˜‰

  64. Hi Sean,
    I totally agree with you. It is important to have a goal, and an end result of what you want to achieve. Your family was your main focus. Mine is to be able to live where I want, that is the beauty of the internet. And be able to have a lifestyle where I can stay home when I decide I have children. Thank you for the video.

It was interesting how you said about making your goals public, it reminded me of a story in think and grow rich about how a great warrior sent his boats full of soldiers to an enemy’s country, unloaded the soldiers and the equipment and gave the order for the ships to be burned, leaving his army with no choice, win or perish.

    I became interested in internet marketing whilst recovering from total left hip replacement surgery and have had some success with pay per click. I do wish to work from home full time, and hopefully with your guidance Sean and my hard work I will be able to achieve this goal. Thanks again for the opportunity.

  67. Great ideas, love the aspect of promoting a product that you are already a customer of – this will ensure your authenticity shines through.
    Having completed Warrior Spirit course over the weekend – it was a wake up call to setting your goals – telling as many people as possible (I also find it ingrains it in my mind too), and most importantly take action – so what is your first step?
    Nothing like hammering it home – Cheers

  68. I can hear the passion in how you talk and have the inspiration to not just write down my goal but make it public. Wahoo how empowering!

  69. Here’s my first place of becoming public (amongst like minded people must be a good place to start).

    In my mission statement that I have already written I have that I will be an Enlightened Millionaire by 31 March 2014.

    I will achieve my first giving goal, not a donation towards but sponsoring a guide dog puppy through it’s two years of training, in 12 months time, 1 July 2011.

    • The way you are going, the 2014 goal may come earlier! However, my reply here is about your last line – that is such a good goal. I really like it.

      My aim is to sponsor though World Vision and to be able to make a difference in some child’s life.

      Attending the webinars, exploring the blogs here and commenting and so on are my little steps towards achieving that goal – which in the long run is more important than anything I gain for myself wealth-wise.

      I am at an age where material things mean less and less to me, but giving to others has always been a practice and hasn’t lessened with age.

      • I have already replaced my income using a leverage business from my graphic design business and have scaled that back. I have had a bit of trouble giving it up altogether as I like the creative side.

        However this business is online it is not totally internet based, hence wanting to learn about improving my position in this way.

        I have made a post on http://www.seanrasmussen.com/webinars/do-you-feel-lucky-internet-marketing-competition/ about my big giving goal and that is to help people closer to home via a trust that has centres around the country.

        Not that overseas child and people overseas are not worthy of our support but there is also such a great need right in our own communities, towns, country.

        It could be something down the track that we could work on together. The only requirement would be passion for the cause.

    Back at my desk and trying to catch up after a week of hospital and tests for a Heart attack scare!!! They wouldnt let me take my laptop to the Cardiac Ward.!!!!! Funny that…
    I want to learn how to make money online and I keep getting road blocks in one form or another I am over it!!!!

    • Couldn’t take your laptop? Gee, some folks are unreasonable aren’t they?
      Seriously though, hope you are feeling better and all is well.

      • It is ‘funny that’ Leigh. Maybe they should have moved you to the luxury suite at the end of the ward??

        I’ve just changed brick walls to road blocks in this Randy Pausch quote. Does that then give me the right to claim it??

        “The road blocks are there not to keep us out (FROM REPLACING OUR INCOME ONLINE). The road blocks are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.”

    • Keep going with your alternative options for better health.

  71. Wow Sean! – the power in this video for me was your openness in publicly disclosing your goals and aspirations to others before you had achieved them and how that seemed to propel you to these goals.
    The learning I’m getting from many different angles in this competition is awsome.

    • His openness is part of what makes him successful. When you think about it, why shouldn’t marketers be open – yet many really keep their cards close to their chests – so it is difficult to know how to relate to them and to trust them

  72. Hi Sean,
    I’ve watched this video before and it’s more inspiring than ever. Perhaps that’s because I’m understanding better the internet Marketing possibilities you speak about or possibly it’s that your sincerity shines through more once we get to know you better.

    Either way this replacing income video is very inspiring.
