Handshake hypnosis?

Brad Fallon is an SEO expert and great guy. I got to know him on the marketing cruise I was just on. After our presentations, we hung out together and picked each other’s brains. He asked me about my P.T. Barnum book, writing in general, and hypnosis, too. Brad wanted to know if it was true that a hypnotist could put someone into a trance just by shaking their hand.

I told him, yes, of course. Stage hypnotists do it all the time. They have to learn instant inductions in order to make the show happen fast. Milton Erickson was famous for being able to put people into a trance state with a handshake, too. I told Brad I could do it, as well, and I stretched out my hand.

He offered his hand to mine but just as we touched, he quickly realized what could happen and pulled his hand away. We both laughed but the point was made. The expectation that something as innocent as a hand shake could put you into a hypnotic trance is exactly what makes it possible.

There’s a lesson here in all human dealings, but I won’t spell it out.

I’ll let you think about it….



How to make wine at home

I grew up drinking homemade wine. My father made it every year. He never used chemicals. No yeast, sugar, preservatives, sulfates or anything else. JUST grapes. It was the fountain of youth.

People today can’t believe that you can make pure, natural wine at home with only grapes. They all want kits and chemicals. What they don’t understand is that natural homemade wine is made the old school way — the way the ancients made it as far back as 2,000 years ago in Greece or Italy — only they used clay pots and today we use glass bottles. Still, the system to make wine is the same.

I miss that healthy wine. I wrote a report on how to make homemade wine yourself which I just posted at http://www.DadsHomeMadeWine.com

If you know anyone making wine without the additives, let me know. I’d like to sample some.

To your health!



Hypnotic Writing Wizard now available

My software for helping you write sales letters, ads, articles, books, speeches, news releases, and more — called Hypnotic Writing Wizard — is now online, and in two cool versions.

This is the famous Windows software that people have been raving about for a longtime. Larry Dotson said –“This software should be ILLEGAL. It makes it too quick and easy to write anything. It shot the words out of my mind like a rapid-fire MACHINE GUN.”

Direct marketing legend Joe Sugarman said –“Not only does this leading edge software help you write sales letters with ease, but you can also write news releases, ads, articles, speeches, web copy and even entire books with it. The hypnotic inductions by Joe are simple, short and, more importantly, they work. I was skeptical about the Hypnotic Readability Formula, but I used it to analyze one of my own letters and the results opened my eyes. Hypnotic Writing Wizard is a breakthrough in creative writing.”

Prolific author of 50+ books Bob Bly said –“Anyone having trouble writing anything needs to boot this program up. Within minutes you can slide through blocks, get a handle on what you want to say, and come up with memorable ways to say it. This is a real breakthrough.”

You’ll find even more testimonials online.You’ll also find there are now two versions of the software:

#1. The Basic one gives you all the tools you need to write letters, ads, books, talks, etc.It comes with the formulas, inductions, tools, headline generator, readability analyzer, unconscious directed writing, etc. You could become a hypnotic writer with just this alone. It’s that powerful.

#2. The Deluxe version comes with all the basic tools but includes the famous Swipe File, containing proven words, phrases, sentences, closers, etc, which you can just weave into your writing to make it much more compelling. This is beyond powerful.You simply copy and paste — “swipe” — the proven sentences that improve yourwriting. This is almost too easy.

The Swipe File has been and still is my secret weapon in writing my emails, sites, articles, and books with such speed and power. I love it and *always* use it. Obviously, it works. Again, it comes with the Deluxe version.

I’m very excited about Hypnotic Writing Wizard. This program is based on my first best-selling e-books, Hypnotic Writing and Advanced Hypnotic Writing (and includes them for easy reference). The program is my own upgraded version of an old DOS program called Thoughtline, that I always loved and once sold. I hated that it is gone and managed to create this new and improved version based on some of the key concepts in Thoughtline.

While my new software won’t do your writing or thinking for you, it *will* guide you to writing with more ease and power. The hypnotic inductions and other tools will stimulate your mind to come up with fresh ways to express yourself with persuasive power.

Hypnotic Writing Wizard is fun. You’ll probably feel like you are playing a video game rather than writing anything. It’s all intuitive and playful.If you’re at all interested in writing with more ease and focus, using every hypnotic tool in the book, then check out my software at —


I wonder what you’ll write after you get Hypnotic Writing Wizard today…

My motto: "Dare Something Worthy"

Where are the next millionaires?

On the flight to Miami I took a book with me that turned out to be so riveting I kept nudging Nerissa and exclaiming, “This is terrific! I have to tell everyone about this!”

At my presentation on the ship I held up the book, described it, and urged everyone to get it. My passion for the book, and the nature of my talk, was so passionate that I got a standing ovation. (Thank you, thank you.)

I’m not making a cent from telling you about this book. I don’t know the author, either. I just think this little masterpiece is the most inspiring and informative book I’ve read in way too long.

I’m talking about “The Next Millionaires” by Paul Zane Pilzer. It’s a book so new that Amazon doesn’t even carry it yet. (They might by the time you read this.)

Get it from — http://www.TapesandTools.com 

Pilzer is the bestselling author of many books, including “Unlimited Wealth” and “The Wellness Revolution.” While I like all of his works, this new one goes straight to the heart of what interests me: The location of future wealth.

I love Pilzer’s optimism. He says we never run out of natural resources, and that our fear of scarcity is what compels us to use technology to solve the problems. He also reveals his six laws of Economic Alchemy that I found fascinating. I can’t say enough good things about this one. Again, this isn’t a paid promo. I just love the book and want you to have it. Again, just see –http://www.TapesandTools.com 

I’m going to lay down now until the room stops floating…
