A Case Study of a Ten Thousand Dollars a month Membership Site

Daniel Scocco is a blogger from Brazil who used his blog as a launch pad for a membership site. He went through Yaro Starak's Membership Site Mastermind program, then went to work to launch his membership site.

He did a 5-day launch and brought in OVER 200 members at $48 a month. If you do the math on that, he generated a $10,000 a month income stream in just five days.

That's incredible and inspiring stuff and you can hear Daniel and Yaro break down exactly what he did in this podcast interview here (it won't cost you anything) -

What's particularly powerful about Daniel's story was how he was able to leverage the relationships he built up with high-profile experts in his industry. He invited well known people to contribute content to his membership site, which meant he didn't have to do all the content creation work.

He also leveraged their fame and access to people to help sell his membership site. A brilliant strategy that you could replicate in your market, so you need to listen to this interview.

Set aside some time now, download the podcast and enjoy the discussion - it's truly motivational stuff -

If you want to be the next success story like Daniel, join Yaro's Membership Site Mastermind program. The current enrollment ends on Monday, (May 11) so you only have a day left to go before you miss out. You can learn more about the program and sign up here -

MANNY "Pac-man" PACQUIAO is the new International Boxing Organization (IBO) and Ring Magazine World Light Welterweight Champion.

Here is a recap to his latest triumph in boxing history. Boxing Champion Manny Pacquiao floored Ricky Hatton in the second round of their Battle of the East and West at the MGM on May 2,2009 before a global audience and more than 16,000 boxing fans who watched it live in Las Vegas. It was Pac-Man’s powerful and solid left hook that annihilated The Hitman. This victory of Manny Pacquiao made a world record tying sixth division world title and fourth consecutive wins in a different weight class therefore making him the best fighter of a generation.

Manny Pacquiao who is called “The No.1 Pound for Pound Boxer in the World” …”The Mexi-cutioner”…”The People’s Champ” and “National Fist” has returned home today , the 8th of May at six o'clock in the morning. Manny arrived in the Philippines with his delegation despite the Influenza A (H1N1) virus scare and typhoon Emong.

Fresh from his victorious and spectacular bout against British boxer Ricky “the Hitman” Hatton, the unstoppable and still undefeated Manny “Pac-man” Pacquiao appeared excited and in high spirits as he greet the Filipino people during a brief presscon at the airport. The whole nation is anticipating his arrival today to see their “hero” who continuously brings honor and pride to their country and all the Pinoys around the world. President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has even declared his arrival as a National Day of Celebration. He is set to perform in a solo concert at the SM Mall of Asia to thank his supporters and will attend the Thanksgiving Mass in Quiapo Church. His customary motorcade will be scheduled next week hopefully with a better weather condition.


Together with all the Pinoys around the world, I am proud of Manny Pacquiao’s conquests and popularity. I hope that he would still be the same Manny – Filipino’s pride and inspiration, in whatever endeavors he wants to take in the future. There are news reports saying he will run in the 2010 election as Congressman. The news has caused various reactions from his fans and Pinoys all over. Because politics in the Philippines is associated with corruption, fans fear that Manny’s jump into this dirty field may taint his person and eventually destroy him. However, I think that Manny should be given the chance and just hope that he remain the humble, God fearing man who upholds his good intentions for his nation and countrymen. Having said this, it is beyond any doubt that Manny Pacquiao reigns supreme not only in boxing but most importantly in the hearts of every Filipinos.

For all the Filipino boxing fans, check the latest updates on Manny and other Pinoy boxers at

Manny Pacquiao writes a regular column KUMBINASYON at and Abante to reach out to his millions of fans worldwide.

A Step-By-Step Guide To Launching A Membership Site

Today a new report was released by Yaro Starak, a well respected blogger and Internet marketer. His report is called the Membership Site Masterplan and as you would guess, it is a step-by-step guide for launching a profitable online membership site. You can download the report from here: The Masterplan

Yaro's a great teacher and writer, and whenever he releases a report people always eagerly await what he has to say. His gift is the ability to take complex subjects and make them very easy to understand. As you will see in this report, Yaro makes the process of setting up and profiting from a membership site so easy, anyone can do it, including you.

The Masterplan doesn't disappoint, and once again Yaro has not held anything back. This is a report that is full of CONTENT, it's not some hype-filled document just designed to sell a product and not really teach you anything.

In the Masterplan Yaro explains how he was able to make $250,000 from just one membership site and then goes on to lay out a plan so you can launch your own membership site and earn at least $100,000 within the next 12 months.
In the report Yaro takes you through the following process:

- How to find topics for a membership site

- How to develop preeminence, which means people choose to join your membership site over all the other options

- What sources of traffic Yaro uses to bring members to his site and build his list

- What technology Yaro uses to deliver content (this is so simple, anyone can do it)

- How to make money from a membership site BEFORE you create the content for it

- How to fill your membership site with hundreds of new members in a matter of days by conducting a powerful, yet simple, launch campaign

- and much more...

Download the Masterplan here:
Click here to download the Membership Site Masterplan free report

This is by far the most comprehensive report I've ever seen on this topic and I can't believe Yaro is willing to give it away. Of course Yaro hasn't put all this work into the report for nothing. He's launching a training program next week and this report is designed to introduce you to his teachings.

That being said, this report is a complete document - no matter whether you decide to join Yaro's program or not, you will benefit greatly from this report, I know I did.

If you're thinking of selling something online, a membership site is definitely the top choice. A product that you sell once, yet continues to deliver income month after month, is by far the best business model. But listen, I don't need to convince you of this, read the Masterplan. Yaro has put together a very compelling story and followed it up with a very detailed plan so you can do it yourself.

Go get your copy now and Good luck with your membership site!

Before I forget,
Yaro told me he's going to release an audio version of the Masterplan too, so you can either read this report or listen to it, whatever you prefer. You can go register for both versions here -

Easter Reflection : A True And Inspiring Story

“Focus on the possibilities, rather than on your disabilities”. Bo Sanchez of the Kerygma Community emphasized this message as he talk about “happiness” when I chanced upon him on TV last Black Saturday. I was about to do some errands that afternoon, but this guy caught my attention. He is such an excellent speaker, and I remember way back when I was still in my teen age years that I used to subscribed to his magazines. I was delighted that after so many years, I would have the chance to listen to him again. Anyway, I was more immersed into his talk when he told the story about this extra ordinary Filipino-American lady who despite of her disability was known internationally to be “the first pilot to fly an airplane using her feet”. Her name is Jessica Cox.

Jessica Cox was born armless, a disability which gives us an idea of how limited are the choices she would have in life. But this special girl showed to the world that she can do what ordinary people usually does. Jessica Cox even exceeded far beyond what any person can do, taking into account her condition. At a very young age of ten, Jessica started tae kwon-do and eventually earned her first “black belt” at fourteen in the International Tae Kwon-Do Federation. And believe it or not, she can even drive her own car and was the first armless woman to be given a pilot license.

Everything about Jessica is so amazing and inspiring. Her courage and high degree of self-acceptance was impeccable. Her disability did not stop her to dream big and to do what she always wanted to do. And because of this, people did not only accept her but made her their inspiration. Jessica Cox now an international motivational speaker carries the message that nothing is impossible. If we only set our hearts and minds to something, we can make our dreams come true.

Easter for me became more meaningful and hopeful this year when I had this opportunity to know the story of Jessica Cox. If you want to know more about her, please visit her official website at

A Lenten Reflection

" Though I am unworthy, You sacrifice Your life for me and died on the cross to save me from my sins...Thank You to my Redeemer and Savior JESUS CHRIST!!! "

Isaiah 53:5

He was pierced for our transgressions

He was crushed for our sins

The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him

And by His wounds,

by His wounds we are healed

Song: "By His Wounds" by Mac Powell, Steven Curtis Chapman, Brian Littrell, and Mark Hall

In the Philippines, a “fashionista” is not only a person who works in the fashion industry like designers, models, fashionable celebrities and the likes. It is also commonly used now for ordinary people who love to follow the latest trends in fashion, as seen in their clothing, shoes, hairstyle and accessories. Some pinoys now use the word “fashionista” to describe a person who is not only confident but also bold to express herself or himself through the clothes and accessories she/he wears. There are also fashionistas who are sort of risk takers, because they couldn’t care less if their fashion statements are likeable or not.

Having read so many articles about fashion from the time I started to know what it means, I want to share with you more or less the most basic guide for “fashionistas” which I found of great value. These are the timeless dos and don’ts in fashion. They are practical steps that even a fashionista wannabe will find them easy to follow. I personally feel that fashion shouldn't be taken too seriously because after all great style should look effortless.

Fashionistas get inspired usually by Hollywood celebrities whose style they love and want to imitate. There is nothing really wrong with this although you should learn and observe how these celebrities put pieces together and why these work for them. Consider their shape, height even the season of the year they are wearing those wardrobes. You don’t want to be seen wearing something for winter while it’s simmering hot in your place. Common sense is really the key here.

It is practical to do a closet check at least twice a year. It will save you a lot if you know what to keep and what to toss before shopping. It is smart to learn also how to care for your clothes and how to properly store them in your closets. Try to group tops separately from the bottoms as these will give you hints for possible combinations just by looking at them. Avoid ramming clothes at the back of your drawer; not seeing them will surely make you forget them. As much as possible, do not use wire hangers as they deform the shape of the clothes.

Fashionistas love to show their best and dressing up for a night out. Avoid wearing flats, instead opt for high heeled shoes or stilettos as they make you look taller and more confident. When going to clubs, wear something sparkly or if you’re not into glitzy top, wear a dressy top and pair it with rockin’ accessories. This is the perfect time to reveal some skin but choose just one feature to show off. And when dressing for a date, don’t overdress and over-accessorize. Wear a statement ring, necklace or anything vintage which could be a good conversation piece. Don’t forget to wear a sweet or subtle scent. If you want to achieve a sexy look, make sure to have a good posture, wear a low-key make-up, slip a pair of stilettos. Don’t miss your pedicure. Don’t reveal too much and do get a tan and moisturize.

In as much as I would like to share some more, the list could be endless. Never the less I’m sharing some fashionista must haves from head to toe:

1. Shirts - Crisp white shirt/ white tank top. Buy more than one piece in other colors and learn to layer.

2. Jeans – Buy those that are perfect fit for your body. Go for tighter fit jeans and invest in raw blue or black shades as they never go out of style.

3. Dress – Invest in a “little black dress” (LBD) which never gets old.

4. Jackets –Do own a nicely cut jacket. Do look for tailoring features.

5. Bags – Invest in a statement bag, also do own an evening bag and weekend bag.

6. Shoes – Invest in classic pointy pumps and reliable stilettos. Get embellished sandals and ballet flats.

7. Accessories– Invest in authentic pearl or diamond stud earrings and buy trendy belts and accessories. Own big, dark sunglasses for travel.

With the present economic crisis, a fashionista can also do good being a "recessionista". I must say that one can still look great and in style given the present situation. Economics shouldn’t be a nuisance at all. If you’re a pinoy living in the Philippines, ukay-ukays or surplus stores can be your good option. Seek inspiration from magazines and fashion websites.
