Microfinance: How You Can Change the World, One Poor Entrepreneur at a Time

Microfinance, like New Media, puts the power in the hands of the little guy. Rare thinking entrepreneurs like you know what it takes to go at it on your own. You are willing to risk it all and reap the rewards. If you are grateful for what you have, and you’d like to discover how you can quickly and painlessly give a poor person a hand up instead of a hand out — take three-minutes to review this report. You’ll quickly realize how big of a difference you can really make with a very small action.

In India, Vadla Baguma with her buffalo business is one small example of the power of microfinance. To date she has repaid in full all her loans up to $600. With her most recent loan, Baguma decided to diversify beyond their buffalo milk business. She purchased a sewing machine and does mending for hire. With this additional income she is able to send her son to school. He’s the first in their family to do so.



Women stepping up

In the world of microfinance, most loans go to women. Industry averages run at 95% repayment rates with women. The money when repaid cycles back in and is re-loaned to other micro-entrepreneurs. The money supply grows with interest being added to the repayments.

Microfinancing is a way for poor people to get access to the same economic power that creates wealth in every capitalist economy in the world.

The poor of the world seem likes such a big job. We all want to do it, but it’s difficult to get your hands around. With microfinance you — yes you, one single person — CAN make a significant, and direct impact on the lives of dozens and possibly hundreds of people.

You can change a family’s destiny right now

This weekend, September 13-16th, as speakers at the World Internet Marketing Main Event in San Francisco, we’re proud to be part of a special funding drive for Unitus called “Internet Marketers Against Poverty.” And you, as an independent, gifted business person, can help an entrepreneur change her family’s destiny this weekend.

Unitus is one of the world’s leading microfinance accelerators. They won the 2006 Fast Company Social Capitalist Award. Unitus invests in microfinancing organizations in the world’s poorest countries with finances and consulting. They are decreasing poverty by increasing access to finance, and that is where you come in.

With just $5.50 you can help one micro-entrepreneur fuel their dreams to better the lives of their family. And while you can do that anytime, this weekend’s funding drive is rewarding you for taking action now.

Normally I shy away from “rewarding” people for helping others. But this venture is so different, so powerful — because it’s a “hand up” rather than a “hand out” — that Deb and I just had to participate.

We, along with dozens of other marketers and entrepreneurs have donated products that are bundled together as thank you gifts for your taking action during this funding drive.

Depending on your donation, you can get up to $2,200 in high quality products as a reward for taking action. (Note: rules for contributions of products required that these be products that are currently sold, not given away free. So this is a real bonus package.) The goal is to raise $300,000 in four days.

To help micro-entrepreneurs glimpse a shadow of the self-sustaining dream that you and I live as successful business people live, go to http://www.60secondmotivators.com/unitusbonus.php now.

When the Wright brothers flew their plane for the first time, it stayed in the air for 20-seconds. It covered 120-ft. At that time we could have said “so what.” But that little flight changed the world. For the first time a human being flew.

Microfinance is the Wright Bothers plane in the fight against poverty. It is covering that 120-ft in the efforts to help poor people. If you could, (and you can,) wouldn’t you be willing to help get it off that ground and help the poor around the world help themselves?

Help us hit the $300,000 goal in added funding this weekend. Go to http://www.60secondmotivators.com/unitusbonus.php now and choose your donation level.

You’ll be rewarded not just with the knowledge that you’re given a hand up to entrepreneurs in the world’s poorest countries, and directly impacted the lives of hundreds of people in a tangible, lasting way — you’ll also get the bonus gift packages listed as our thank you gift for helping.

New Media Marketing In Action – Live at TIMME and WIMME

We’ve just arrived to San Francisco where we’ll be speaking about Web 2.0 and New Media Marketing at this year’s *WIMME event with Paulie Sabol, Donna Fox, Mike Filsaime, Stephen Pierce and other leading internet marketing gurus.

Try not to feel sorry for us as we’re busy traveling and “networking” as we speak and promote our book, blog software and business in San Fransisco, California.

Sure, we’ll be mega busy… but if this “Networking” Video gives you any indication how “tough” it is living the ultimate business owner’s lifestyle, how networking for joint venture partners and deals is REALLY done – then you’ll not only NOT feel bad for us… you’ll want to JOIN us this Saturday morning at the Marriott Hotel in San Francisco for the WIMME event!

* WIMME = World Internet Marketing Main Event Formally called TIMME which the above video was from the night after we spoke from the main stage to promote our book, Secrets of Online Persuasion, and Blogi360 – originally called Blog Interactive 360 when the course was first released.

I gotta’ say, ever since that night, Harris Fellman (the funny guy who coined the word “POG” won my lasting friendship with all the laughs he gave me! Plus – he’s a really cool guy with a ton of integrity. And he really knows how to market using Web 2.0 Mafiosa style.

Oh – btw: if anyone’s wondering where I am at this networking soiree, I’m behind the camera – and even though I was primarily drinking iced tea, these guys had me laughing so freaking hard, I couldn’t hold the camera straight. Sorry about that!

But you’ll be able to catch me in the pictures at the end – I’m right in the middle on the last shot.

Note to self – at THIS year’s WIMME event in San Fransisco – give the camera to someone ELSE while shooting video – so people will know who is behind the camera.

Anyhoo – I’m looking forward to getting away, and “networking” at this week’s WIMME in San Francisco. We’ll be speaking Saturday morning (that’s this weekend) – as we’ll be hosting the “New Media Marketing Mimosa Party” soooo – let’s hold the evening partying for SATURDAY Night, so we can celebrate the event’s success and “network” with all of you who are here in San Fransisco with us.

Deal?!

PS: Thanks to the powerful Blogi360 system, I can be in TWO places at one time! Right now, I’m at my booth in San Fransisco, setting things up, meeting a ton of new people, and JP is entertaining a bunch of cool folks at the WIMME event, with his new magic tricks he’s been practicing on me and all our neighbors. (Tribal Seduction at its best!) All the while as we’re busy connecting with our tribe, attracting new tribe members and checking into our hotel, our Blogi360 is busy posting and updating social networking sites FOR me – so I don’t have to!

Ahhhh – Here’s a toast to having the best systems for your business so you can have a life – or make money while Blogi360 does the “grunt work” so I don’t have to! LOL!
