A very (painfully) personal letter
from Azam Meo,
If you're a real estate entrepreneur or small
business owner - or you want to be - and you're still craving the big
bucks, so much so that you're sick and tired of losing sleep because
you're living so far beneath your potential...
Allow me to help -
What its NOT...
NOT because you don't know the internet marketing, Google,
Yahoo, YouTube, etc. "tricks"...
NOT because you don't have a website or answering service to
"do the work for you"...
because you don't hire enough "virtual assistants" who barely speak
NOT because you don't have "motivated sellers"... (isn't
every seller motivated?)
NOT because you aren't following the right real estate or
NOT becuase you aren't faking it 'til you make it "good
NOT because you don't have "enough" signs on your car...
NOT because you aren't on Twitter or Facebook...
NOT because you just aren't in the "right market"...
because you are in a "bad economy"...
because your area is "different"...
The answer is much, much simpler.
In fact, I already gave it to you.
And it is so simple that almost everybody ignores
Here's some PROOF that
almost nobody gets "it"
Even in America, so few people ever make any real
money - it is unbelievable.
And I'm not talking about making millions either,
just making $10,000 - $30,000 a month in net income is a
complete deal breaker for almost every business owner.
This is isn't just in real estate either, pick any
business in any industry.
Almost everybody remains broke.
Spinning their wheels in frustration.
Eventually becoming just another
Maybe you're starting a business, thinking about
starting your company or maybe you have a current business (in real
estate or otherwise) and you feel like you've hit a plateau and
you're not clear on how to take things to the next level.
Either way, the fact remains that if you're an
entrepreneur and you're brave enough to start from scratch (where most
of us start) you have almost no chance of success. How
about finding a suitable trainer? Almost no chance of that either.
How can I say that?
Look at the numbers every year - they don't change
- if there was a large movement or group of people that knew what they
were doing, then why does almost everybody fail?
The Government Says
You're Successful If...
you don't go bankrupt!
How's that for lowering the bar?
Imagine starting a business on the internet, and a
year later you've spent tens (or hundreds) of thousands and you have yet
to make a single penny. This happens everyday by the way.
A few more years go by and you've put everything
you have into growing this business, every penny, and you still haven't
made any money.
Fast forward a little longer and now you are
bankrupt, divorced and looking for work.
Well guess what Uncle Sam thinks?
As long as you
exist and haven't
completely disappeared - that's a success; not failing.
What's more sad is that the numbers
Historically they remain just about the same;
almost everybody fails at the money game.
It doesn't matter if you're just getting started,
if you have a current business (in real estate or otherwise) that is
struggling or even if you're killing it right now - the real question is
how are you going to grow your company into Empire that runs with or
The statistics -
the factual data -
tell us that almost nobody knows how to do this, so I'll make this real
So what group are
Ask yourself how often you hear
yourself others say (or feel) the below phrases.
Be honest now, it is the best way for
us to learn and grow.

"What am I doing wrong?
I did everything I was supposed to and I'm still
spinning my wheels?"
"Every time I find
something that could be a deal, there are 100 other investors

"I went to my local

"There are so many people
in my life I'd like to help financially, but I just don't know how?"
"I actually want to
help people, but from what I know all I know how to do is take
advantage of people."
"My business is stuck,
this year is going to look a lot like last year..."
"I'd love to hire help,
but I just don't think I can afford any real good help... that speak

how it feels to be an untrained but "experienced"
"The money is
okay... but I'm breaking my back and working like a dog, there has
to be a better way."
"My numbers this year are
going to look exactly
like last year."
"I just don't see how I
can subtract myself from my business, I am my business."
"This used to be fun, but
I now that I want to move on to something else I feel trapped because
if I stop working I stop making money."
"Business is okay, but
I want to spend time with family and I just don't know how to make
that happen without killing my revenue."
"Every time I walk away
from my business - even for a few minutes - it seems like everything
falls apart and I have to start over from scratch."
"All day I'm putting
out fires, I rarely
have time to spend growing my company."
"I'm making more than I
would at a job, but I still have a job and I feel like I'm
cheating on my business to spend time with family and friends."
"I'd love to sell my
company and be done with it, or start a new business in another
industry, but I just don't know
how - what's worse is
that I don't know what will to my company once I'm gone."
"I would love to give my
company to my children and pass it down through generations, but how
can I do this without just giving them a series of jobs like I have
And lastly, the third group is made
of two smaller groups. One portion are the "experts" or the
know-it-alls (the people that chant things like "I've been doing this 35
years...") and the other portion are the complete idiots, or the
What these people say, is usually
code for what they really feel.
So to help understand them better
I've provided translations.
how it feels to be an untrained "expert", know-it-all, idiot or
"There are no secrets
in real estate investing."
(or "no secrets" in whatever industry we're talking about)
Translation: "I know everything."
Translation: I tried it, and I
didn't have immediate success or instant gratification so instead of
being ambitious and making it work - I gave up. Now whenever
anybody brings it up, I'm threatened by their potential success
because it would force me to admit my own shortcomings (if somebody
else did it and I didn't, then it was my fault) so instead of facing
this potentially painful admission I'll just write it off and
hopefully discourage my audience from proving me wrong or making me
look bad. Phrases like this are a great way to justify my
work in my business/area/industry."
Translation: I'm not smart enough
to find a way to make the connections (the definition of
intelligence!) to my situation so instead of even trying, I quit every
time. To glorify my quitting I will invalidate any and every
idea that may reveal my ignorance or humble me by providing knowledge
and education. I'm dangerously loyal to ignorance, so phrases
like this are a great way to justify my
lack of intelligence.
doesn't work for anybody!"
Translation: Instead of claiming
that "it" doesn't work for just me, I need a way to justify my
laziness. So this is a great way to not only explain my lack of
activity, but it also allows helps me feel smarter than others who are
attempting something that I know doesn't work. In the
unfortunate event that somebody proves me wrong, I still have a backup
plan to avoid learning; I can still say that it "doesn't work in my
area." I use phrases like this to justify my
doing this for 35 years, there's nothing new under the Sun."
Translation: In reality I've had one
year of experience repeated 35 times. By now it is too painful
to admit flaws or learn to overcome incompetence, so my hope is to
conceal my ignorance and lack of skill by advertising my seniority.
It would be terrifyingly embarrassing to admit that I've been things
wrong for decades.
So I ask you again...
What group are you in?
Do you feel a sense of certainly when it comes to
growing your company?
Or are you just guessing?
I supposed the answer of "Training" is a little
vague, so let me clear up what I mean - and more specifically how you
can tell if you're on the right page.
Before I do though, I want to stress that almost
nobody the planet understands what I'm conveying to you, and yes
I know how that may sound - but take a look at the statistics and the
research yourself - almost everybody fails, and fails miserably, they
aren't doing it on purpose, are they?
See most people are so deluded that they don't
even know the difference between the training they should be seeking,
and the training they are getting (everybody is being trained, whether
they know it or now) so the first real challenge is understanding that
It can save your life.
Think of it this way...
BUSINESS requires a
completely different skill set and training...
Do you recognize these
side effects of bad
Too many people are just guessing.
And they'll guess themselves all the way to
- most likely dying broke.
You may be thinking, "Oh Azam, is it really that
bad?" Maybe or maybe not, you tell me.
Side Effects of
waste time becoming an ambulance chaser, hunting for people
in divorce, unemployed or with recently deceased family - because that
means their "motivated" and more likely to accept your shi**y offer.
waste time on "teleseminars" and at "Weekend Bootcamps" where
you spend thousands upon thousands (without verifying the claims of the
"Guru") hoping that this time you'll finally get the magic bullet
waste time learning to become a handyman so that you
can waste even more time fixing properties, cleaning out houses and
doing yard work to add "curbside appeal"
waste time getting your credit cleaned so that you can borrow
money from a bank (that you're bailing out anyway) because you think it
"takes money to make money".
waste time by finding ways to put money into deals by
borrowing from friends, credit cards, family, etc. because you think you
have to have "skin" in the game
waste time searching courthouse records and trying decipher
novels of legal language, because maybe "that's where the deals are"
waste time doing short sales, trying to convince idiotic,
hopeless banks that their property is really worth "a lot less"
waste time looking at properties and going to Home Depot to
price-shop for the best deal on a used refrigerator.
waste driving around neighborhoods looking for drug dealers,
prostitutes and other "bad signs"
waste time learning how to fill out pages of legal
paperwork so that you do things "right"
waste time making hundreds of offers because you've been told
it is a "numbers game"
waste time trying to convince your family and "friends" that
you aren't just a wannabe
waste time making excuses for your tenants not paying you
their rent on time.
waste time sending junk mail that is thrown away faster than
a used condom.
waste time getting your real estate license so that you do
waste time negotiating with bank/ers for impatient, thankless
waste time looking at properties and inspecting them for
And... ultimately, you end up just another
Don't become just
Nobody sets out to waste time, spin their wheels,
lose money, piss away opportunity or die broke - it just "happens",
The fact is too often people have been so
demoralized, deluded and even defrauded that they wouldn't know a golden
ticket if it were handed to them on a silver platter... it is so
much easier to write it off than get your hopes up - like a defense
Here's the sad reality
So right now I'm going to let you in on what I'm
doing to solve this problem for you, me and all of us trying to make
"So, how good is
your training Azam?"
First I should explain that when you go through my
whole story (the link is below) you'll see that I was working with
companies and growing businesses for some time before I worked with real
estate investors - and I started working with investors almost by
But when I started training individual
entrepreneurs (in real estate and otherwise) I learned how different a
real entrepreneur's mindset is from many the employees I was used to
It was a great switch, and something I immediately
fell in love.
Then I learned that there was an entire network of
"real estate gurus" who traveled around the country speaking and
teaching their secrets, philosophies and ideas on how to make money in
"How great!" I
The ability to pick the brains of people who are
making it happen in real estate?
To learn from experts that can help your company
To be around GURUS who can teach their secrets?
That's just too hard to refuse, right?
As I heard more about these guys and gals, spent
time listening to them and tried to pick their brains - I realized
something painfully obvious... as I got more and more into their mindset
and even when I would talk to them individually it was apparent that
their money came from...
And, what's worse, they normally weren't making
that much money teaching either.
And, very often, they never "did" very well either
before they started teaching.
So, basically, their entire business model was...
successful and sell others your "Secret"
Now I'm not putting all of these people down, at
least they are taking action and (hopefully!) helping at least some
people - so good for them.
And I'm not saying that listening, studying,
purchasing, learning from, etc. a vast source of outlets is a bad thing
- it is a great thing and honestly if you don't learn from somebody it
says more about you than anybody else because a great mind always
finds lessons to learn from.
You should mercilessly hunt for excuses to learn.
Find excuses to
learn - instead of
learning to find excuses.
So no matter who you're talking to, where you are
or how stupid your company seems - a willing mind always
Anyway, you can learn from anybody... anybody.
That's my point.
With that said so many of the real estate "gurus"
were more interested, involved and dependent on selling their
information than they were in actually helping people succeed.
This is shy so many people were coming to me and wanting to be on
It had less to do with me and more to do with the
credibility and real-worlded-ness of what we were doing. Then,
slowly, as the crowds got larger, as one bus became so crammed that we
didn't have enough room for anybody else - as I started working with
more and more people over the Internet, around the state... around the
country... and later around the world... something happened...
I (reluctantly) became
(called) a "Guru"
I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but before I
knew it people were in forums and chat rooms asking about my stuff.
I didn't have any stuff - and I still really
The only program I offer is at:
And I wrote parts of that program while I was on
that bus because I wanted the people who weren't able to get a seat to
have something work with so they didn't have to leave empty-handed.
That is the only material (aside from the
Alliance Project) that the general public would know about because the
other training I've done is largely based on referrals and working with
So I didn't think I was much a "guru" and over the
years I've went out of my way to make sure that people don't mistake me
for one - I don't want to be put in that group and I don't want to be
known as a "guru".
Well anyway, that's how the "guru" title got
I'm a real person though, and I've put blood,
sweat and tears into everything I train and teach with - and I'm
thankful that people notice that. Even though I've had more than
my share of critics, and although there is plenty to critique I'm sure,
one thing is for sure; nobody questions my credibility.
You may not like me, my attitude, how I look, how
I speak, what I say, etc.
But you won't ever have to wonder...
"Does Azam know what
he's talking about?"
At least not if you spend any time
"checking me out".
Speaking of which we still have to answer the
"So how good is
your training Azam?"
Ironically not enough people ("gurus" or trainers
I mean) really understand what this means - it has less to do with what
I've accomplished or how much money I've made, of course
that is important to establish - but to measure the strength of my
training one must look at those that I've trained, right?
Common sense, right?
Well in a moment I'm going to get into what others
have done with my stuff, but first here is a rough outline of the three
main phases in the Student Alliance Project:
I Train You, We
Split Your Profits...
My go here's a brief glimpse of what others
- NOT ME - but what others, clients, students, etc., have done with my
ONLY training on the planet where you can see exactly how to
take your company from zero and sell it for huge numbers (we're talking
eight and even NINE figures here), take it public or leave it for your
children to grow
ONLY training on the planet you can buy, sell and own
companies like Subways, Dunkin Donuts, etc. with no money down, no
credit check, without getting loans - or any of that other BS.
ONLY training on the planet where you can learn exactly how
to start your business and hit $10,000 - $30,000 a month in NET income
by working less than 10-15 hours a week
ONLY training on the planet you can buy, sell, rent real
estate - across the world - without leaving your house, getting your
credit checked or even talking to a bank
ONLY training on the planet where a student can own theatres,
airports and even luxury jets - with no money into the deal and without
even being in the country
ONLY training on the planet where you can buy, sell, own and
grow virtually any business you want - no money down, no credit check,
no loans, etc.
ONLY training on the planet where you see how just two signs
a month made a student about $50,000 a month... in less than five hours
ONLY training on the planet that has been proven to take
companies from zero to $10 million, $20 million and even $100 million
ONLY training on the planet where you see exactly how a young
lady cold-called her way to the President of the United States
ONLY training on the planet with the single highest success
rate of trainees, clients and students
This is the
training on the planet proven...
Does my stuff "really work"?
Are you kidding me?
By the way...
Make Me PROVE It!
You'll notice some outrageous claims and wild -
even unbelievable - stories of success - so hold me to higher standard
and make me prove it. In a moment I'll send you to a page
where you can see, listen and watch undeniable proof of every
claim that I make.
My Mentor Program has now been added onto and
expanded into the Alliance Project, this is my holding your hand and
walking you through every step of the process - so it is important that
we both qualify each other.
I only select a small, tiny, almost microscopic
group to work with because I don't want standard seminar junkies wasting
my time and bringing the group down.
I'm serious about that - dead serious.
entrepreneur irrefutable, undeniable and shocking proof?
This page explains
and includes a "Proof" section that you have to see to believe...
Go here now:
Not only will get to watch the Special Episode
that explains how we can work together, how I'm building our Team and we
can partner after you're trained with my stuff - but you'll also get to
go through the five part Debriefing which will help you even
You'll be able to take the Empire IQ Test and see
exactly what kind of company I train people to build...
You'll get the Personality Test to see if you're a
good fit for this project...
And, of course, you'll get to go through the Proof
items that verify everything I'm saying...
So check it out, and don't be lazy (another
characteristic of "statistics") and make sure you go through everything
and see if you qualify - all the details and instructions are right
there on the page, so go here now:
And see if you qualify.
You'll thank me.
See you there,
Oh yeah - one last thing - this is something I
would've killed for when I was starting, so either way you should
go watch the Special Episode (above) and ask yourself one very important
"Am I really properly trained; how will I
avoid becoming just another statistic?"
