I am writing you to announce some outstanding news!
Our “most successful castle attendee” in recent years is a late sign-up for October Castle Extravaganza! No I am not trying to fill places! LOL! It is full and we are making room for him as a distinguished alumnus! Success does have privileges!
As some of you know and I have written in previous newsletters – from April 2010 to end of 2010 he made more money than he had done in his entire career and he was already successful! Admittedly he was only 39 when he came in April 2010, so he didn’t have such a long time to earn money! LOL! And to further refresh your memory, he waited 13 years to attend the castle event! You’re reading right! 13 years! WTF! He had regrets for not attending earlier, but he made up for it with a vengeance! Of course he thought what he could have accomplished if he had attended earlier! And I told him and others – better late than never! I have attached his Thank You letter I used in a newsletter in 2011! It is well worth reading! And to answer your question – he is paying like everybody else, but he like all alumni get a 25% discount!
We are happy to have Robert from Bavaria back at Guthrie to share his insights from experiencing QLA in the real world – if you can call Germany the real world! LOL! And if you can further call Bavaria the real world! Again LOL! After April 2010 he was doing 7 and 8 figure deals and I am told he has exceeded those numbers since 2010!
As many of you know, I also have a number of success stories from Germany (the Fatherland) since the first Castle Seminar in the mid-90s! I think it is something in the water! LOL!
We have coming to this seminar: 2 net gurus from Romania; 3 bricks, wood, mortar guys from Austria; 1medical doctor from USA; 1 net guru from Asia; 1 USA/Asia service provider to medical industry; 1 German (Robert) green energy provider; 1 Canadian/Hungarian food service provider; 1 USA apps guru; 1 Greek orthodox priest, if he can break away from saving souls. And again we will be also honoured by a real life very successful master Internet guru who will give several hours instruction on how the net can help your business!
Again I am very pleased to have Robert of Bavaria back to the castle! I am sure he will add a lot of value for the other attendees!
To your QL,
P.S. As I have written I have been cutting back on my schedule and traveling a lot more as my social media pics on https://www.facebook.com/danpenasr and https://twitter.com/danspena have shown the last few years! At this time I have no plans for a castle seminar in 2013, though that could change! I will be very busy in 2013: I plan on finishing much of my bucket list of places to visit around the world; my youngest son is getting married at Guthrie Castle; I am honorary chairman of my 50th high school reunion; I am climbing Mt Kilimanjaro new on my list; my daughter will graduate from Northwestern with her Master’s degree; sail the south pacific not previously on my list; revisit the silverback gorillas in Rwanda added to list again because it was so fantastic; and open a chain of Tuscan Italian restaurants in China!
P.P.S. In addition, I will be busy with a new concept for techies Asia in 2013! On October 8th, I will launch iZone Technologies’ new open free spirit techy office format in Asia. iZone-iHUB will be a free home for innovation and technology ideas – open 24 hours a day and 365 days a year! Developers, computer scientists, programmers, computer engineers, and geeks (LOL) will have the first free open forum in Asia to develop ideas on their own and be able to collaborate with other like-minded individuals – ALL FREE! If and where appropriate iZone will contribute funding and expertise. There will be free coffee, tea, air conditioning and security! And I am sure when I visit, free pizza! The first penthouse bean bagged decorated office will be in Manila. You can check them on FB https://www.facebook.com/iZone.iHUB.Philippines and Twitter https://twitter.com/izoneihub .
P.P.P.S. I will also launch an absolutely first for me – a brand new market area that will completely surprise all of you! More later!
nearly one year has gone, since we met for a whole week in your marvellous and ancient, fully renovated to deluxe class Guthrie Castle in Scotland.
What has happened since then to me?
My family already was very fine until then, but afterwards developed even much better – simply great and nearly unbelievable – thank you very much, Dan.
Until then I had negotiated and realized deals all together of a volume of a few million Euros.
During the last 11 months I could multiply that in a really fantastic way.
I listened to or negotiated about deals over about 1,5 billion Euros, was invited to deals on several continents and already realized a highly satisfactory multiple in project/deal volume of what I have realized during my whole life before.
I now own a multiple in shares/holdings/investments, than I did a year before – so, I earned more last year, than I did my whole life before – and I own more than 50 percent in each deal (in only one deal together with a partner).
Filling my emotional bank account with your support over the last year enabled me to feel something like I could convince the UN or any parliament in the world about anythink talking before them literally barefoot:
Even today – on saturday – I started to work at 5 a. m.
Yesterday I got a contract from the church for a fine project.
After that I fetched the building permission in the city hall from the mayor for this multi million Euro project, I was fighting for since March 2010. In December 2010 they still insisted on me taking back the planning application because "dirty" water there would "prevent a permission FOREVER".
Now, I PROVED them (the office of water economy, the state office for environmental protection, the governor and the government, the city administration, the mayor and the expert/surveyor/evaluator) guess what?
I applied to them all, wrote something like my own expert assessment/comment on the expert reports of the surveyors and now they all believe me, what is
YOU CAN DRINK THIS WATER!,
concerning the environmental "problems" that they insisted on and that would NEVER allow a realization of our project there.
But – funny enough – we do not want to drink this water or use it for
anything: we simply want to produce (green) electric power on this site.
I also tried to apply the behavioral patterns you preach, Dan, in a better way, than I did before in other deals:
A few weeks ago I met the director of a bank, who wanted to offer me a few projects. New financing by his bank without personal liability included. He had tried to get into a meeting with me for months. After two and a half hours he had offered me several projects, I immediately told him my oppinion about each of them and he seemed quite impressed. After three hours I left and we shook hands again – his hands were cold and wet, my hands dry and warm. I laughed about that quite a lot (after I had left his office).
Yesterday 2:12 p. m. shortly before I was back in the office after fetching the contract and the building permission, he wrote to me that the bank has accepted my offer – letter by letter – for the first of the projects.
I had made this offer yesterday at about high noon before I left to go to the church government and to the mayor – it was the first offer I ever made to this bank – one page in size – one price and about a handful of fine, convenient terms and conditions for us.
As I now simply write down and remember the things that happened only yesterday, I think, you or anyone else would merely believe this – what seems to me even more than reasonable -, but I want to add that to be able to accomplish this in just one day within about two hours is just by accident, of course – but to accomplish all of this AT THE END is just a few hundred hours of applying your QLA strategies and maybe even more your QLA ATTITUDE.
If the mayor writes to you in December 2010 after many months of fighting for it, that you should take back your planning application, because there would be no way for a permisson forever for sure, the simple question is:
"What will it take, to turn all the nay-sayers into friendly supporters?" I simply never gave up. And by teh way: I never gave and never took anything for such support.
But my simple QLA ATTITUDE was: " Whatever it takes – as far as it is legal and honest -, I will do it!".
So I decided to do 1., 2., 3., 4., 5….:
I went very deaply into all the details, read the german and Swiss drinking water ordinance, the german and European directives for sewage and water quality, then contacted the people of highest expertise of german universities etc. and so I could prove all of them at the end, that the water is OK, that the city does not have to spend millions for the filtering of this now proven clean and environmentally flawless water – AND: OUR PROJECT CAN HAPPEN, NOW.
So, I want to thank you again, Dan, for what you gave to me:
1. At the beginning a few years ago in your books and your tapes – I could apply several things immediately by getting all the financings I wanted etc.
2. But last year in April you and the QLA Castle Experience were still another level of graduation. Before that experience I already was convinced by your materials and my own experience, that I could do all of this.
After this experience I do not need this conviction any more, because now I really and deeply know it. And there are no more doubts, now, because if you know something, you do not have to ask a lot of questions about that, you simply are able to use it and to act, as if you had no limits.
Doubts about a deal are useful, but we never share them We are laser beam focused We act as if we landed in Britain and we burnt our ships – loosing is no alternative – we act, as if we had no limits So we do whatever it takes, as far as it is legal and honest …
I did so many things this year, they all told me about "You cannot do that!"
– but I did. You are absolutely right, Dan.
I still have not created a dream or a dream team what your suggestion is – so, doing this one day or another could result in entering even higher levels – but I am doing very well now, as you can imagine by simply reading about one great day.
What my conclusion is like your own, besides my deepest thanks:
Super success is not for everyone, maybe especially the touchy-felly ones (but even they can fill their emotional bank accounts with tons of self-esteem, self-consciousness and grow largely in confidence),
but I think super success and QLA is for all of those who are able and willing to do whatever it takes.
Because then they are able to do whatever they dream about, at least they simply are not anymore able to excuse and say, that they did not know how to do it.
So, I think, the best thing for anyone who has the chance and luck to be confronted in any way with themes of Dan Pena and QLA is meeting him in person.
I hope, I will meet you again at one of the next Castle Experiences –
I'll be back.
Thanks a million!
P.S.: Dear Dan, as I thank you so much, you may feel free to use anything of what I wrote to you for your own purpose if appropriate (here and today, I tried to give you again a better testimonial – than you have on video from me from last April when I still had to change my conviction into knowledge), if you remove my name, please – because there are so many details, that some of the guys mentioned above might kick themselves for, if this is shared.
And again my offer: If I can do anything for you, please let me know.
