donny-deutsch-and-bill-gates.jpg I loved being on Donny Deutsch’s CNBC television show, The Big Idea, last night. If you missed my three minutes of fame, you can see it right here:

If you can’t see the above link to click on it, then you can click on either of these: or 

And no, I didn’t have too much coffee before I went on. 🙂

I was told I had three minutes to deliver three hour’s worth of information.

I was also told Donny is a super high energy guy who likes his show buzzing.

So buzz he got.

Every weeknight Donny interviews a wide range of people, from Bill Gates and Donald Trump to newbies to zanies to mom and pops to single moms to, well, you name it.

The show is fast moving, upbeat, and inspiring. Learn about Donny’s The Big Idea at 

You must watch it.

This guy rocks!

Ao Akua,

    Wow that was intense! 😯

    Great stuff, great pace, great information too. Congrats on a fine appearance! Can’t even imagine what the pressure to perform must be at a show like that.

    Too bad we don’t get the Big Idea show up here in Finland… yet.

  2. November 20, 2007 at 11:11 am

    This was great! Quick and to the point, practical and easy to understand so that everyone can relate. Perfect for setting New Year goals. Good job = )

  3. November 20, 2007 at 11:31 am

    Wow, man, I gotta say, YOU ROCKED on that show! How to tell it like it is in less than five mins. Awesome, well done Joe 🙂

    RE: The Donny Deutsch Show

    WOW! Mr. Fire!

    Thank you for all the ways that you give –
    by clearing and charging yourself with that
    cosmic fire, what is expressed is miraculous!

    I am so grateful for all this wonderful fire
    in its many forms that you manifest and
    embody! It is truly what changes the world
    from its most fundamental level. I thank you
    and bless you. May it return to you a billionfold
    in ways that you would never imagine!

    Have a miracle week, Joe – you and your family!

    Dear Dr. Joe:

    Nobody does it better.

    So why do you usually take 3 hours?

    Love to all.

    You rock, Joe! I’m a huge Donny Deutsch fan, and now I’m even more inspired! I think I’ll “nevelize” being on The Big Idea!

    :smile:Joe, you are truly an inspiration, and not just because you’re a cool, Italian guy, although that always helps, I’m sure! I read and reread your motivational emails each and every day, I visit your blogs, I’ve read several of your books and just yesterday ordered another. What a gift you are giving to all of us. I’m working daily on getting clear and it’s getting easier and things are really happening I never expected. Keep on going, I know you can reach everyone if you do. The world is ready for your messages!

  8. November 20, 2007 at 1:21 pm

    Thanks for posting the video online. I did miss Donny’s show last night. Boy was that high energy. I read the Attractor Factor, but it was also great to see you put it in a nutshell. I’ve found that “nevelizing” and “getting clear” do make a difference in manifestation.

    Thank you so much for sharing this video! I’ve been reading your books and have to force myself to put them down. I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of more of your books in the mail. Incredible stuff!!! 😀

  10. November 20, 2007 at 1:51 pm

    I missed the show last night, and was disapointed! I am so glad you put your clip on line for us to see! Great job — much much important information in that little clip. I hope millions of people continue to see it on line! What a wonderful world that would be!

    I pre ordered and read Zero Limits had been fascinated by the Hawaiian healing technique since I first read it on the net few years ago.

    If someone of the huge amount of new millionaires being born from your fiery energy and enthusiasm is interested in financing and marketing our latest book a therapeutic tale with powerful techniques to overcome bullying and other forms of aggression helping teenagers become self empowered, writen and published in Spanish, we are willing to explore this avenue!:wink:

    bear hugs!

  12. November 20, 2007 at 2:46 pm

    Dr. Joe,

    Great seeing you on “The
    BIG Idea” with Donny D. I’ve
    watched his show for a little
    over a year and love the format
    and LOVED seeing you on it!

    My only regret was that you
    didn’t have longer with him!
    Perhaps that’s where we come
    in…When we’re sitting on the
    show discussing our “Made it
    Big” idea and crediting you!

    Looking forward to that day
    my friend…Looking forward to
    that day!

    Sam P.

    Way to go! Loved the show. We actually just got the “Attractor Factor” and LOVE IT!

    WOW Joe, congrats man!! You are on fire!! 😀

    Hey, here’s another article I wrote that your readers might enjoy. 🙂

    Be well – I love you my friend!

    How to Turn Tragedy into Opportunity
    By Jason Mangrum

    I couldn’t believe it.

    They closed my Paypal account.

    I’ve been using them for years.

    It’s near the holidays, and they locked
    it up with all my money. I was at Madison
    Square Garden with my wife Skye and our
    friend Michelle to see Dane Cook (he was
    hilarious) and was informed by a puzzled
    cashier as he handed me back my debit card
    with a slightly raised eyebrow, that I was
    declined. So, I called them to fix it.

    After about a 2 minute wait, the guy on
    the other end said, “Ah dude, I don’t know
    how to tell you this, but your account has
    been closed, umm… permanently. I’m sorry.”

    I almost fell over.

    I’m a full-time entrepreneur “stay-at-home”
    type of guy with a family and a big house.

    “This can’t be happening!” the ego shouted.

    “I left all my money Paypal!”

    I’m not going to tell you how much.

    But it was enough to strike a pang of fear
    through my heart, which had now begun to
    sink slowly into the bottom of my chest.

    “Tell me what I can do to fix it.” I muttered.

    He returned, “…hang on a sec.”

    I’ve brought in over $33,898 into my Paypal account
    within a hundred and twenty days of promoting
    Passport to Wealth, and wasn’t too interested
    in spending my time and energy on much else.

    That is, with a few special… unique, exceptions.

    I’m also the Top Secret Copywriter.

    I have developed the ability to create money out
    of thin-air through marketing and manifesting.

    But all my money was in Paypal.

    He gave me an email address of someone I could
    contact about possibly getting my account lifted.

    There’s an AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) address
    they’ll give you if you treat them with respect.

    The moment we got home I ran to my downstairs office,
    threw myself at the computer and began to write.

    It was near the holidays… they had to respond.

    “I’m just a human being like them, I’ll appeal to their
    more personal side, and they’ll at least let me get my
    money out of there… for sure. I can do that.”

    The thought began its descent into my reality.

    Consciously, I was an emotional train wreck.

    Visions of sudden doom for my family, our home business
    and our income flooded every corner of my mind. I almost
    “wanted” to feel bad about the whole experience.

    It was a shock to the nervous system.

    Sometimes, when you’re right in the middle of what’s
    going on, you forget to practice what you’ve learned.

    I forgot to focus on the lesson.

    It was trying to get my attention, and I wasn’t listening.

    So, it tried harder.

    A few hours after I fired off my personal email to Paypal,
    I received a personal reply in a robotic sense, officially
    apologizing for the inconvenience, but stating firmly that
    my account was closed for violating the Terms of Agreement
    which was clearly against MLM, ponzi schemes, pyramids and
    “get rich quick” schemes of any kind.

    But I don’t promote an MLM, I promote Passport to Wealth,
    and it’s not an MLM. It says so, right in the video.

    Regardless, they put a hold on my funds for 180 days and
    told me to have a nice day. I was manifesting the end of
    my rope. I had asked for an appeal, and they said no.

    I wanted to sue them and get even. They ruined Christmas.

    There’s that ego again.

    I was left with no choice but to surrender to a higher power.

    I decided to turn inward.

    Within 30 minutes of meditating, clearing and energizing my
    light body using Falun Dafa, I gained the lesson. The “ah hah”
    moment hit me like a bolt of lightening… equally as jarring
    as the previous, less positive encounter.

    I manifested this to make more money.

    Many people don’t use Paypal, and the search engines are
    quickly filling up with anti-Paypal sites all over the place.

    There are some horror stories from ex-Paypal users that put
    mine to shame. My friend Carlos Garcia lost almost $200,000
    when Paypal shut him down and froze his funds overnight.

    Recently, a new, more widely trusted source has emerged.

    In fact, unlike Paypal they’re a household name. Google.

    Google Checkout is a new rival to Paypal.

    Billions of people search Google every day, versus Paypal’s
    few million users. That’s a bigger difference than it seems.

    People trust Google more than they trust Paypal.

    Google will increase sales.

    Their Adwords program works seamlessly with Checkout.

    In fact, my friend Chris McNeeny just released a video
    revealing his $1.67 million dollar ClickBank account to
    prepare the world for his launch of the Google Assassin.

    There’s a lot of money to be made using Google.

    Paypal is cracking down on any program or business that
    promotes the idea of being able to make money. They label
    it as “get rich quick” or MLM and freeze your account.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s a genuine and legitimate business
    selling access to $75,000+ in products and software with
    Master Resale and Private Label Rights for $997, to them
    it’s a scheme and violates their Acceptable Use Policy.

    Google doesn’t see it that way.

    They’re not perfect, but they’re better for sales.

    My best advice would be to remove Paypal immediately if
    your business promotes the idea that one can make money.

    Too much can be taken away from you overnight.

    Now back to the lesson…

    I finally listened.

    As a result of learning the lesson and paying attention
    to the universal clues surrounding the entire situation
    telling me Paypal was bad for my business — and I could
    increase my sales beyond anything I’ve experienced before
    using Google Checkout to accept all major credit cards,
    I received another email from them.

    This time it was a canned response. But it told me that
    my funds were now available for withdrawal. A miracle.

    I promptly logged into Paypal and began the transfer to my
    bank account. In 3-4 business days, I’ll have money again.

    They were kind and generous enough to lift the hold long
    enough for me to send the money to my bank account.

    I appreciate them. They were an integral part of my choice
    to manifest more money through my online business.

    And now, I can use the resources I have readily available,
    to turn this tragedy into opportunity and help other people
    by telling my story. They don’t happen without challenges.

    Every obstacle or problem is a challenge to give you
    the opportunity to turn lead into gold. If you don’t
    listen, it will try harder to get your attention.

    If you refuse the lesson, you are doomed to repeat it
    as many times as necessary to get your full attention.

    Just look for the clues.

    The lessons are there to help you know yourself.

    Looking back, I can see my reactions both inner and
    outer, that caused these manifestations to occur.

    Had I been mindful of the lesson at the time of
    experiencing it, I could have avoided the severity
    of what happened all together.

    But the moment the lesson is realized, you get relief.

    This didn’t just happen so I could increase my sales,
    I also learned that self-control while in the moment
    manifests a better, more positive and all-around easier
    projected experience. The outer reflects the inner.

    And now, I have a whole new arsenal of tools from Chris
    and his “Google Assassin” to make more money than ever before,
    and have it deposited from Google, straight into my bank.

    I hope this article helps you.

    In every moment, you can turn tragedy into opportunity.

    Remember, you must smile in the mirror first, before your
    reflection smiles back. But the change is instantaneous.

    Feel free to pass on this article everyone you know. Place it
    on your web site, in emails or on your blog. Let as many people
    see this article as possible to protect themselves and avoid
    having to learn this lesson the hard way, like I did.

    May your journey be filled with blessings beyond compare.

    That was intense! Man, were you ever switched on last night! Amazing how you were able to expertly distill multiple books of time-tested success wisdom in three power packed minutes of fiery extemporaneous genius. Very impressive. I was stoked the whole time you were on he air with Donny. Well done, sir.

    Awesome. Just fires me up to work on my site even more.

    Great interview Joe. Good to see our message getting out there more and more.

    Happy Thanksgiving – and See you Soon!

  24. November 21, 2007 at 1:36 pm

    How cool was that, Joe! Congratulations
    I love that show too and it’s only fitting that U were a guest!

    But I digress . . . I really logged on today to extend a heartfelt Thank You.

    Thank You for sharing your Dangerous Marketing – 21 Daring Ideas by Leading Edge Thinkers article with students of Mark Joyner’s Simpleology course over the Independence Day holiday this past summer.

    Joe, your Dangerous Marketing article inspired me to launch the Citizen Wish List Project.

    Before that, I kept waiting for someone else to come along and sound the horn to gather and start sharing great ideas about solutions to improve our quality of life.

    Then I realized I was supposed to.

    So on Labor Day I did just that.

    Thanks for those great stories by those who feared not.

    To Joe and Everyone Else . . . .here’s an OPEN INVITATION . . .

    Be part of the Solution.

    Submit your great ideas at

    Best Regards,

    Hi Joe,

    What a wonderful TV appearance. I loved how you mirrored Donny’s energy and pace, and how you managed to include so much value. You clearly described the five steps in a way that viewers can really use them.

    Isn’t TV so much fun? I’m glad that you’re great with it because it’s such a powerful medium to deliver your message. I’ve been doing a lot lately too and I also enjoy it a lot. Here’s a recent coaching gig I did for MTV that was wild:

    Talk to you soon!


  26. November 23, 2007 at 3:31 am

    Joe! Incredible! You actually pulled off talking faster than a New Yorker! I am amazed you didn’t stumble on your words and got everything out so smoothly! Excellent, clear presentation in a very compact form! Congrats too on being on Donny’s show – I know this meant a lot to you as you are huge Big Idea fan! I can only begin to imagine how you must have been vibrating with energy and excitement! Good stuff Joe… good stuff! :mrgreen:

    Jason Mangrum! Shame on you! I’m very sorry to hear of your issues with PayPal, but Passport to Wealth is a 1Up which is considered by many legal entities to be technically the same as a Ponzi scheme. You should have read the PayPal TOS. Your error.

    It is a tasteless and poor tactic to come onto someone else’s blog (regardless of the fact that you did some squeeze pages for Joe V. a while and have a working friendship), barely acknowledge the exciting event Joe just experienced that is the subject of this post to put out there your own personal obviously marketing-embellished story that goes on and on and on and on (with not so sincere sounding marketing copy!) and contains multiple links to your personal money making sites, of course one of which is this Passport to Wealth. It is disgraceful you marketed yourself so shamelessly here.

    It shows a complete lack of respect for another’s space, Joe and his blog readers.

    I don’t think you learned any lesson from your PayPal adventure. If you think the lesson was that with Google you will make more money…Jason, you are doomed to have the lesson repeat (it might look slightly different) because that was not the lesson at all.

    I’ve been exposed to your marketing tactics for this 997changesyourlife (a.k.a. Passport to Wealth 1up program) and how you are marketing it to the benefit of yourself and with little regard for those that you bring in (that you make money off their “legs” to infinity).

    I would say the lesson may be to realize that we are ALL ONE and the lack of respect you show to your fellow beings has to come back and slap you in the face just for that very reason. You are slapping yourself.

    Wake up Jason or you will find this money you have “manifested” so quickly will really vanish irretrievably the next time. Then how will you cover your new house payment?

    All Love and All ONE,


    You said you moved on from your desperation and fear… your posted comments reeks of desperation.

  27. November 25, 2007 at 1:10 pm

    Awesome interview – Straight to the point, great content, easy for anyone to understand and change their lives!
