I first met Michael Force at a Master Marketing Event in Phoenix in 2011. I simply walked beside him and interrupted someone else talking to him by asking if they took copious notes. It may have been a bit annoying, though it did play on one of Michael’s key phrases. It was his radio spot about being a former Marine and not really knowing marketing, yet he got into a marketing business known then as Carbon Copy Pro (it became Pro U). Though he is tall, is shorter than I, so it is all relative.

I met Andrew Cass during that same event, though in a more formal setting of the after party designed to put new marketers with the pros. I did have someone take a picture of the two of us. For those of you with a Facebook account, the picture of the two of us is here. For pictures of the whole MME 7 event, back up a bit to here.

In the Pro U world, Michael Force and Andrew Cass were 2/3 of the three Amigos, the latter third being Gregg Davison. In those days, the three seemed inseparable, conducting team trainings together, webinars and a mastermind event in Miami. The Top Gun training that weekend so blew my mind that the result was captured in this video on the Sunday evening. All seemed to be going well.

Andrew was the first to branch out on a way for online entrepreneurs to get funding required to really get going on their business. Gregg was striking to grow his team to become self-sufficient as quickly as possible and Michael was taking a great role in mentoring Pro U members. Then suddenly, it all changed. Silence was heard from all three.

Gregg Davison as the first to drop out of communication with personal problems. Our thoughts and prayers went with him.

Andrew Cass went completely silent.

Michael Force resigned his position as mentor for Pro U to concentrate on Business to Business.

Others filled in the gap.

Now Michael and Andrew have returned. Their new business is less an opportunity and more of a marketing vehicle for other businesses. It is concentrating on mobile marketing. It is about using iPhones and Androids to reach customers. A personalize iPhone app is available. Websites converted to be mobile device ready. Now is to the time to get in. Act now.


Bryon Lape has seen much and been around many opportunities that failed. The IMall, Streamline, ebay selling, etc. He has seen much and failed at more. Pro U is about community and sharing. What does this have? Can it be used to sell Pro U or The Empower Network?

The answer is yes. When launched, the new vehicle expands into the realm of the mobile device. Users are no longer content to pinch and expand websites really meant for computers into their phones. When they scan your QR code, they want to go to a site made for their device and buy now. They are serious. They want the right information coupled with the right experience. They don’t want to futz. Make then do so and they are gone.

This is gonna be big.

Throughout the weeks, great ideas for postings and articles come about my mind. Many times complete articles run about, nearly always at times where I am unable to put thought to paper, electronic or the old style analog. What does one do when stuck in traffic or walking the dog? Let ideas flow and dispense them into the universe and let the universe return the ideas to you. What else would one do? New ideas will replace old ones. New directions will emerge from the withered husks of the old.

Upon this week, I’ve decided to do with something new. As I look at the marketing of others in articles, videos, blog and even Facebook, I have noticed three common mistakes. This week I will present my take on this mistakes via video, blog and article. Not before have I been focused on one topic in all my ways of communicating with the world.

It is now time for the words to flow via all forms.
