Ok… So I screwed up… Here’s how I’m fixing it.

Mistakes suck…

We all make them. It’s a part of life. The important thing to remember about mistakes is that they do happen, and when they do, as long as you handle them the right way, people will forgive, and you’ll probably end up being better off because of them.

Very recently, I screwed up…

It affected you, quite possibly in a pretty significant way, and I’m going to fix it in just a minute.

But first (because I always try to provide value in every post / email), I want to talk a little bit about how you can handle mistakes when they do happen.

Here’s what NOT to do (which is what most people do).

When you mess up, it’s very easy to do things like:

  • Run and hide
  • Lay blame and point fingers
  • Make excuses as to why it happened in an attempt to save face

Most people will do anything to avoid admitting they were at fault.

But… in the eyes of others, all this does is make you appear defensive, weak, and whiny. No one likes a finger pointer, and no one likes someone who can’t admit they screwed up.

Most of all, it pushes the accountability you have to own your life completely away from you.

We talked for the past few weeks about owning your life, and that includes the good and the bad.

So if you mess up, just come out and admit it, think what you could have done differently, and try somehow to make a positive out of what went wrong.

This is far better than taking no responsibility at all.

So here was my mistake, and how I’m going to fix it

Unless you live in a cave, you probably already know that the last few weeks were the initial release period for my newest course, 401k Millionaire.

In a nutshell, there were some ugly things happening on the sales pages with the payment processor that I used. These things prevented many people from being able to check out successfully.

Just check out this screenshot I received.

401k-millionaire-mistake

Ugh…

Since then, folks who emailed me have been taken care of, but many folks, yourself possibly included, were not able to access the pages to check out and purchase 401k Millionaire, at any level.

Now, here’s the point where I could go on a rant and start pointing fingers about what happened, but that wouldn’t fix anything.

It certainly wouldn’t help you with your 401k.

When it comes down to it, it was my sales page, and I was the one responsible to make sure it worked across every browser, no matter what the security settings, version, cookies, javascript, etc.

I made a mistake. I failed you. That’s completely on me.

So now I need to make up for that. Here’s what I’m going to do.

Here are my “mistake upgrades” for you. You’ll never find this deal again

For the next 72(ish) hours, ending Tuesday, Oct 9th at 6pm EST, 401k Millionaire will be re-opened for enrollment, this time with the checkout pages working completely correctly

And here’s where things get awesome. I’m offering you three awesome upgrades. All you have to do is email me your receipt.

If you purchase the eBook version, you get a free upgrade to the Audio Course version (a $30 upgrade).

 

If you purchase the Audio Course version, you get a free upgrade to the Premium HD Video version (a $70 upgrade).

 

If you purchase the Premium HD Verison, you get a free 60 minute coaching session with me included with your purchase, to be used at any point of your choosing (a $150 value).

 

None of these upgrades have been offered before and none of them will be offered after this promotion. This is my 72 hour way of saying, “I screwed up”, and you get to benefit because of it.

So again, I apologize for what happened with the checkout pages. I hope this helps to make up for my mistake.

I’ll send a couple more reminders about this to make sure you have every chance to take advantage.

After that, we’ll resume Academy Success as usual.

PS: I screwed up. The 401k sales page had a mistake that prevented some people from checking out, and I’m re-opening it for 3 days, with some awesome bonus upgrades.

Go here to get your copy, and free upgrade now, ending Tuesday, Oct 7th at 6 pm EST.

13 Ridiculous Excuses For Not Making Money

I’ve received all kinds of questions over the years about money and wealth creation, and quite a few more since opening my new course last week. Some are totally legit, but some are silly, like… “I’m 46. Isn’t it too late for me?” “What if I have kids? Kids cost money.” “I have a house to pay for. I can’t save any money.” Can you see what these people are doing? Over the years since I’ve been selling online courses, I’ve taken note of a strange phenomenon. It never fails. When I open a course, people ask question after question, […]

Your Three 401k Millionaire Options Explained

401k millionaire eBook

When I first started developing 401k Millionaire, it was originally planned as a high end video course only. It was packed full of several hours of high definition video content, plus extra downloads such as email scripts and templates, full slide decks, MP3s, PDFs, and accountability reminders. There was only going to be one way to get it, to be a high achieving premium subscriber. But then I thought back on why I created Academy Success in the first place, to help as many individuals as I possibly could. Yes… There are a ton of different ways I do that […]

Myth 4: Someone Else Will Handle Your Financial Future

myth 4 video thumb

So far in the Four Biggest Myths of Wealth Creation series, we’ve talked about several common limiting beliefs that are holding you back from a life of success in personal finance (we’re talking literally six to seven figure setbacks here, so pay attention). We’ve blown away the common belief that you can’t get rich working for someone else, by showing you that even an average salary can create a portfolio that will generate millions and more We’ve destroyed the limiting belief that you have to be a math genius, or a money person to invest by understanding that wealth creation […]
