Episode # 325 Anik Singal
Natalie: Hi, I’m Natalie Ledwell and this is the Inspiration Show. Today on the show, I have a very special guest with me, actually a friend of mine, who is really helping people to get their message out into the world through the internet in a very unique and effective way. So, I’d like you to welcome my guest today, Mr. Anik Singal. How are you Anik?
Anik: I’m good Natalie. How are you? Thank you for having me, it’s an honor.
N: It’s an absolute pleasure to have you here. And we’ve got awesome information here to share with people today. And of course, I’m all about if you have an amazing message and you want to get it out into the world, for me, I always say the internet can change them. So, any way that we can help people easily leverage what they have and the message that they want to get it out there is always very interesting information for our viewers. But before we get into that awesome stuff, why don’t we start a little bit about your background and your story and how did you get into doing what it is you do?
A: Sure. I’d love to. So you know, I’m 31 years old now, I started about closing in on 12 years now, so 11 plus years ago, I was in college. I tell you, my whole inspiration to start when I first started was only because I basically just wanted to generate income. That’s the truth. I wanted to make income. I wanted to make money and so, I was sitting in college, I didn’t want to do the usual 9 to 5. I didn’t want to be controlled by somebody else. So I went out and start to looking for a way to generate an income. Now, those days and we were young, the whole concept of reaching the world and having a voice and having an influence is not really big at that moment. So what happened was I started doing a lot of things, I started learning internet marketing. I really struggled. I’m talking about big time struggle for 18 months and figuring it out. Finally, one day it was snapping into gear and I figured it out and before I knew it, sitting in college, I was making 30 to 50 thousand dollars a month, net profit. I didn’t get a job. I turned down amazing job offers from wall street just because I was so happy with my business – (2:02) spoke on stage, started doing amazing things and my business was booming and it was growing. I’ll tell you where I learned about the true impact and voice that we end up having without realizing it and it changed who I was, was when my business really took a big turn for the south. The economy crashed a little bit. I made some really bad business decisions. My expenses went through the roofs. I had this can’t touch me superman thing going on, so I thought I could do anything I want and that didn’t pan out very well. So all of a sudden I had a business that’s doing 10 million a year, to now being 1.7 million dollars in debt. And I was destroyed. And at this point, I’m going to end up declaring bankruptcy. So, I never shared this publicly, this is the first time I’m talking about this, basically, I had to do whatever I had to do to make money. Get that money back. So I ended up doing, I got led down to some tracks and I found some friends and I ended up in a market that I felt I can monetize very quickly, right? And it did, and I made a lot of money. At that time, it was like devil and the deep sea, I had to pick one or the other. I didn’t have a choice. Something started happening though, I started to monetize that industry. Of course, I started to make tons of my money back. I started paying my debts back and the whole business process that happened there and how email marketing saved my company, you know, you can see all of that, click the link and I’ll share the story. But what I want to talk with you guys is that I started travelling around and people come up to me and they would ask me stuff about the things I emailed them about and essentially I’ll tell you what happened, I went in to a market, I went from being a person who taught entrepreneurs and businessmen and internet marketers, to being someone who started supporting these one-click reach programs. This little button will make you a ton of money, because they convert it, they made money and I’m admitting it was a mistake, I wish I hadn’t done it but at the same time it paid the bills at that time, it saved my life. But what started happening, people came and talked to me about it. There’s a hey I bought that program, it’s not quite working and this and that, I’m trying, in my head I think, man, this person trusted me and based on my word not only bought this program but spent the last 6 weeks of her life trying to make it work, when deep down I know, it’s probably not going to work the way it sold. Nat, I had a real moment of just turn-around at that point and realized, you know what I’m not just (4:41) sitting behind a computer anymore, I had a voice, the world is listening, people are listening to me and I’m guiding people. I have to take that responsibility seriously. And it brought me a lot of joy, Natalie, to know that suddenly out of nowhere by mistake, I had fallen on the most beautiful method of being able to take my voice out to the world, while also generating a very high quality business out of it. It’s just now I take my voice very seriously – what I say, how I deliver it – I take it very seriously because I know people are listening. For those of you listening right now, you know you can have an amazing following, an amazing voice, teach the world, you can change the world all using as simple as email marketing business model and while achieving financial freedom for yourself.
N: Yeah. It’s interesting when you shift from, and I have a similar story, I had my 30s is what I called my beige years, because beige is just a yucky color, it’s a nothing color. But the reason why I called it my beige years is because it’s 10 years, Glen and I, we had so many different businesses, we had a night club for 5 years, bathroom advertising, property development, coffee franchises, healthy business, there were so many things that we did but every single business that we went into was like how much to invest, return on our investment, how we make money and our exit strategy, so it’s all about the money.
N: And for me, it was like, it wasn’t soul crushing but to me it wasn’t soul-fulfilling. It wasn’t until mind movies came along that we started to work forward through this. We started getting emails from people going this is changing my life. It started to wake something in me that really opened my soul up again and this is where I am supposed to be. (overlaps with guest)
A: I couldn’t agree with you more. Yes.
N: So totally. I think we all have done things in the past that we’ve done just for the money because we have to. But isn’t it interesting and I want to get your take on this on how you go from what was that shift for you? How do you feel now, going from focusing on just the money and how important it is for you serve people other than focusing on the money?
A: Oh man. I just got chills with that question because it’s such an amazing feeling. I don’t know how to put it in words. First of all, my income shot up by almost three-fold. Okay, so I think I want to make that a point. When I suddenly do good by my people, as they would say, my income went through the roof. And I love waking up in the morning, okay. I love when I have eighteen hundred emails from people. Today, right now, I’m busy doing all kinds of things with the launch going on, this and that, and I was joking with one of our affiliates this morning, man, I woke up this morning and (7:31) guess what, I love it. I have no problems putting them out because I know that I’m doing what I love to do. You know, I’ll tell you something, this recently happened, three days ago I was just talking to a friend of mine, he’s a really big motivational speaker and he said something to me and he said, if you were to die at exactly 7 days, if you knew you’re going to die, what would you do? What would you do in your life? And I froze. And I looked at him and said, nothing. And he said, what do you mean? And I said, I will keep living the way I am right now, like I won’t want to change anything. And that, I still get chills thinking about that. That’s a really big thing for a 31-year old to be able to say like I’m really happy, I think I’ve done a great thing, I’ve helped changed a lot of lives. I know a lot of my experience, personally now, three months ago where I’m a completely different person. The feeling is amazing. You literally feel you are fulfilling a destiny. You are actually out there changing lives, helping people. You see them, you hear them. I don’t know how it works but it works and in the process of doing it you make millions of dollars. So it’s like win, win, win all around.
N: Yeah. I agree. I mean mind movies, of course, we are focusing on serving and as a result of that is the most financially successful business that we have. That’s actually a very interesting question because when you just ask that question, then I’m like deep down I’m pretty much the same. I may actually fly back to Australia to spend some time with my family, but other than that, there is nothing in my life that I would really change because I’m doing exactly what I love and for me, I think we all have the same purpose in life and our purpose is to be the best human being that we could be and to make that contribution. Our mission on how that shows up is different for everybody. So that if you’re someone who is watching this show and you have an incredible experience that you know will help other people or you have some kind of healing knowledge or whatever that is, you are doing humanity a disservice not getting that message out there. That is such an amazing way to do that. So Anik, can you share some examples or stories of some people that you have worked with and how you were able to get their message out to the world?
A: Sure, absolutely. I’ll share some recent ones actually. We have, so what happened was we launched this program called (9:54) blue print back in January and from this program we had some amazing, amazing stories come through. There was an individual I’ll talk about his name is Tom. And he spent his entire life working and counseling and coaching dentists. He’s a marketing consultant, advertising and marketing consultant. He had helped dentists and dental hygienists build their business. I’ve known him forever and he is amazing in what he does. He was just doing, going about his day, one day he actually lands upon a killer research and he ends up creating a supplement that is, it’s changing lives, saving lives. Okay? The supplement coming is all about oral health. It’s something called, it’s the dryness like the dryness of the mouth. So he starts researching. He spent a lot of time researching, perfecting and creating this tablet. He’s working through the dentists, getting it out to patients and the patients were loving it, they’ve been giving him good feedback and he says, I’m going to take this, I’ve got to share this with the world. This is amazing. I don’t know how he lands upon (10:54) blueprint and by January, no marketing experience, no nothing and he starts doing it. And you know what happens with us is we kind of like keep track of the students who are just kicking buttons, we kind of like helping them more because they’re showing more interest, so I kind of learn of his story and started helping him more, we spent a lot of more time together. Now, fast forward today, he has an email list of around 20,000 people. And we built this entire funnel for him where he is able to get out more information, he’s getting out free information, pdfs, videos about oral health and he’s helping those people giving them the option of trying his tablet he has created. When before he had a pool of 79 dentists in one particular area that is sending out his message, now, he’s got 20,000 people worldwide from Singapore, Malaysia, India, US, China, Russia, South America, UK, Canada all of these people are on his list and it’s growing. His list is growing 5,000 a week and he’s just getting the message out there. This is just one story. We have about, there are tons of stories like that.
N: What kind of people can benefit from your program?
A: I tell you this, basically, anyone who’s looking to spending about an hour to a day who wants to start their own web-based business, but someone who’s got a little bit more behind it, you just don’t want to make money, because what we do, yes, we teach you to make money because at the end of the day a business is not going to function without money. But what we’re helping you to do is build an email list, helping you build a subscriber’s base, we are helping you reach the world, so someone who’s got a message, someone that really or they want to touch lives, if nothing else, if they have no specific thing that they want to teach or they don’t have a specific tablet and 98% of our students don’t have that, they just want to reach the world, they just want to send out inspiring messages, they just want to help people, if you got that desire plus you want to start generating 10,000 plus a month doing what you love to do and eventually you’ll only be spending one hour to a day doing it, that’s the person we’re looking for and we’re looking for someone super dedicated. This isn’t a push-a-button-click rich type of program. You’re not coming in here and click that button and be a millionaire tomorrow, I never promise that. That’s crazy. You definitely have to come in, you have to learn, you have to do some work but we’re here to support you, the whole team will gather behind you. But really we’re looking for two people, one, who wants to start their own business, wants to generate income from home and a nice-sized income like 10,000 plus. Second is someone who just wants to touch the world, just reach out and help.

It’s completely changed my life in so many different ways.
