Internet Lifestyle Cow Named Oscar

Delivering pizzas in 1996 for little Caesars was the last job I’ll ever have.

Before that I had a string of other dead end jobs including delivering newspapers, signing people up for credit cards in front of Sears, and selling satellite dishes door-to-door in a community that was almost 50% Amish.

The Internet spelled FREEDOM for me.

It freed me from being broke, $50,000+ in debt, and a life full of go-nowhere jobs.

Today I live life on my terms.

I coined the term “The Internet Lifestyle” almost a decade ago.

You get to control where you live, who you work with, and what you do.

Design your life to fit you and your family.

Your work can finally make a difference.

Choose hours that fit your lifestyle.

Live anywhere you want.  Maybe you love the city.  Maybe you’ve always dreamed of living overseas.

Personally, I love the country air.

When I first came up with the term ‘Internet Lifestyle,’ I was living out of town smack dab next to a horse farm.

They had a cow called Oscar that always came up to the edge of their property.

It would stick its head sideways through the fence to eat the grass on our side.

It was a running joke that our nearest next door neighbor was a cow named Oscar.

I mentioned Oscar in an email about the Internet Lifestyle.

It became a legend…from one email.

Wherever I went people asked me how Oscar was doing.

We moved from that location and I lost track of Oscar.

Yet people still ask.  Someone asked recently at an event.

“I don’t know.  Old Oscar was may have been eaten.”

How is this story important to you?

It’s an illustration.

People forgot the points I shared.

They forgot the lesson and it’s application.

But they remembered Oscar.

They remembered the story about the Internet Lifestyle.

No matter what niche you’re in, there is more than enough “good content.”

Information alone doesn’t stand out anymore.

Your prospects are drowning in content.

But what if you share a story your prospects remember?

And what if they not only remember your story, but they share it with others?

Till it becomes an online legend…repeated a decade later.

How will that make a difference to your bottom line?

That’s what the “Autoresponder Alchemy” does for you.

P.S. Yes, I know castrated male cows are actually called steers.  But I didn’t know this when I wrote my original email so many years ago.
