Default Re: Close... but no cigar.

> Hi Michael,

I bought the success report yesterday and what you reveal is absolutely true. It' the main reason that drives me to finish my offline newsletter on time, even though friends and family beckon me on a Sunday afternoon. It gets me up early in the morning when my family is still alseep ... making sure I have returned all the answers to questions from my subscribers. It's the force that keeps me going when I start a new project, keeps me focused until it is complete.

Michael, I buy a lot of info products. Some a good, some fall short of the advertising copy. Your success report lived up to it's promises and more.

Now I've always known about what you reveal ... but I've never articulated it ... never been able to leverage this concept in my business.

That has now changed. So thanks to you Michael, I will now rectify the situation.
