Win a FREE copy of John Reese’s Traffic Secrets 2.0!

Hi everyone,

Something unexpected happened.

A couple days ago I sent you an email letting
you know what’s going on with one of my mentors,
John Reese.

His new Traffic Secrets 2.0 course that’s
been in the making for 4 YEARS is going to be
released to the public very soon (that’s not the
unexpected part).

He’s also GIVING AWAY two valuable training videos
that are crammed with killer traffic-producing
tips you can use right now to get more people to
your websites.

If you haven’t had a chance to already, you can
check them out for free right here.

In that email I sent you, I also mentioned
Robert Kiyosaki and that I considered him and
John Reese to be two of the three “main mentors”
most responsible for my success.

However, I failed to mention who the third one

Well, apparently many of you REALLY wanted to know
because afterwards my inbox was bombarded with
this exact question – which, to be completely honest,
caught me totally off guard!

So I had an idea.

Sure, I could just GIVE you the answer — surrender it
on a silver platter… but that would ruin all the fun!


Why not turn it into a contest?

So how about this:

The first person who correctly guesses who the “mystery
mentor” is, and posts it on my Renegade Network Marketer

I will personally buy you a copy of John’s brand-new
course, Traffic Secrets 2.0 once it’s released!

It’s real simple.

All you have to do is post your guess (who you think
the 3rd person is) below as a comment to this post.

Just a few things I’d like you to keep in mind…

1) Only one guess per person — PLEASE! (If you submit
more than name you’ll be automatically disqualified
from the contest)

2) After someone makes the right guess, I’ll announce
the winner on the blog. Then after Traffic Secrets 2.0
is released, I’ll have the UPS man deliver it straight
to your doorstep, courtesy of me :)

3) The blog I’m using for this contest is pretty old…
so don’t mind the cobwebs! The truth is, I thought I’d
never use it again after I launched The Renegade Network
Marketer over a year ago — turns out I was wrong!

Oh, and one more thing.

For those of you who don’t have the slightest idea on
where to even begin formulating your guess…

Here’s a BIG HINT!

The mystery mentor actually happens to be one of John
Reese’s biggest mentors as well! In fact, he’s been
studying him since he was FIFTEEN years old! (How’s
that for a head-start?)

Good luck to everyone — I’ll announce the winner soon!

To Your Success,

Ann Sieg

P.S. – One reason I like John so much is because he
always does MORE than is expected of him — it’s
one of his “Reese Rules” that he swears by.

His brand-new, totally FREE videos that he just released
are no exception! They have some really high-quality ideas
in them — stuff you should definitely see.

Just click here to watch both of them.

  1. Perry marshall

  2. Ann, My guess is Dan Kennedy.

  3. Jay Abraham is John Reese’s main mentor.

  4. Shavaun says:

    Is it Eben Pagan

  5. Daryl Kinnaird says:

    Andrew Carnegie is my Guess

  6. Jay Abraham

  7. Hi Ann

    Might it be Key Evoy?

  8. Kyle Wilson says:

    Hello Ann,

    I’m going to say Dan Kennedy, the “Millionaire Maker”, for his unique and wildly successful copywriting and business building strategies.

  9. Eric Reinertsen says:

    I believe it is Brig Hart. Am I a winner? 😉

  10. I’m guessing Napoleon Hill.

  11. Zig Zigler is your other mentor

  12. Ken Evoy

  13. Leslie Carocci says:

    My guess is Zig Iglar

  14. Hello Ann, I am a beginner at this but did some research and came up with a mentor. I am going to submit a guess and say the 3rd best mentor you are talking about is ‘Eben Page’. Could that be close? :) :)


  15. I think it’s Corey Rudl.

  16. Hi Ann, Brad here.
    I hope you’re having a good day.

    My guess is Dan S. Kennedy….So did I win???????

    By the way I just bought your ebook…..so far I am dazzled. I was told by a mentor that if you cannot find a good leader in your upline, (do words like leader & my upline even go together?) or a good system online that I should make one myself……
    I was attempting to do that but your book has stalled me..

    What a short cut!!! I am still tweaking a personal “this how Brad does it” set up but your book will save me weeks of time and STRESS.

    I thank you sincerely and look forward to more.
    Brad Bylsma
    Vancouver Island.

  17. Is it John Meatte?

  18. My guess is:

    Jim Rohn

  20. Oops, I just saw that Shavaun already guessed Eben Page. :)

  21. Hi Ann!

    I did watch both the videos and they were ‘awesome’! Thank you for passing them along! I believe the Mentor you are talking about is Napoleon Hill. I went back to notes I had from your “InterNETwork Marketing Mastery” Webinar Training that you did on Thursday, November 29 with Ken Envoy and I believe Lou Abbott hosted it.

    I love Napoleon Hill, too. If he isn’t the right guess, I’m sure he is on you Mentor List somewhere!

    Thanks for all the great info. How I win, I would love the opportunity to get a copy of the Traffic Secrets.

    Have a great weekend.

    To you Health and Wealth,
    Tina Williams

    Thank you!

  294. If not Dr.Dan Kiley, author of the Peter Pan Syndrome, for men who haven’t grown up,(usage
    scriptural’in Him there’s neither male nor female’
    plus,if God is talking, it’s to mankind.) then, this isnt’ part of my answer as ‘one guess
    only applies’ because two authors, Hill and Stone
    writers of ‘Success through a positive mental
    attitude’ could not be described as ‘a’ mentor and
    it’s obvious Ann, you have it,to your mom and dad
    your formative years’ teachers and peer groups, > well done, thanks for the Ann we now know

  400. Marlin Cooper says:

    Jim Rohn

  401. All right Mrs. Siege, enough guessing here, lets bring the mystery man’s name to the light, but first, let build some more drama…

    I just went through the entire 398 posts and man, what a valuable list of powerful and influential personalities to learn from. Here’s my best guess since I see nobody has already mentioned this one and since you said that John has been following this model since he was 15 years old, then it makes sense to bring this guy who is 63 years old today.

    He is a psychologist and in the field of influence and persuasion, he is the most cited social psychologist in the world today, his name? Drum rolls please…

    Dr. Robert B. Cialdini

    Born on April 27, 1945, this guy has really set some serious knowledge on marketing.

    His book, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion (published on 1984, that is 24 years ago when little John was still a teenager), is a must read for anyone who is serious enough about their business success.

    This book instantly became a classic for marketers to apply each of the psychological tactics to success and consistently ranks within the top one half of one percent of books sold on Amazon.com.

    Also, Influence has been listed on the New York Times Business Best Seller List and Fortune Magazine lists Influence in their “75 Smartest Business Books.”

    The content of this book has truly a power that should only be harnessed for good, so please folks and gals, use it to make this crazy world a better place.

    All the Best,
    Peter Palatnik

    thanks for your effort in editing the entries.

    Above whom there is none other, may be truish

    and we are free ‘choose now whom you will serve’

    either to believe that if God exists ( he gives

    us special permission to posit any outcome either

    by brimging them to Him, ‘by any means’ or via,

    the injunction / commandment to’spread the gospel

    like a sweet perfume,’) He IS NOT always part

    of the sales’ process presentation, by name,

    unless the prospect is first bringing Him in, or

    for any other legitimate and conceivable reason.

    My best wishes are that you and yours achieve
    your hearts’ desire.
    Please may I leave you with a short hybrid verse,taken and adapted from a tea-towel on the wall in the kitchen? Thanks;
    You are writing a Gospel, a chapter each day, by
    the things that you do and the things you may say
    Either spoken or written, as long as it’s true,
    Say, what is the Gospel according to you ?
    All the best from FalkirkJohn in bonny Scotland.
