Dani Johnson teaches how she went from homeless to Millionaire in two years.  She’s had many clients from all walks of life double and triple their income following her training, people have paid of enormous amounts of debts and got promoted at their jobs.  Those that are in a home business many made no money and after her training learned how to make a multiple 6 figure income.  I’m one of those people, but I’m only one of 1.000′s that have been through her trainings.

So how do you get prepared and get the most out of what Dani Johnson will teach at First Steps to Success?  There are 3 basic things you want to do, one is to understand exactly how you got into the room in the first place.  The second is be ready to learn taking copious notes and finally understand where the content is coming from.

Let’s start with the first one, understanding how you got into the room.  Most likely the person who directed you to Dani Johnson did it completely out of the kindness of their heart.  What I mean by that is they aren’t compensated by Dani or her company in any way, unless they are an employee.  She teaches a concept in her training that if you help someone create enough results they will tell others about you.  99% of the room is filled simply by word of mouth because of the results someone else got coming out of an earlier training.  I’m one of those people, I’m a client just like you and that’s part of the reason I’m writing this blog post.  Just to do my part and give back.

Second, when you understand how you got there.  It wasn’t a paid endorsement or anything like that then you can be sure the person that recommended you found something that created crazy results either in their income, career or family and they wanted you to get the same experience.  So be prepared to get all you can out of the weekend.  Dani Johnson covers so much info so dang fast make sure you have two pens and a full clean notebook going in. You don’t want to miss one thing that you are suppose to learn.

Finally, understand the origin of what you will learn. Dani Johnson is not politically correct, she was homeless and started a home business out of a pay phone booth.  She has used those lessons to help people from all walks of life but she does it by being extremely specific and strategic.  Her training isn’t hype or fluff, it’s the nuts and bolts of exactly how to increase your income, pay off you debt, get a pay raise at work, get more out of your employees, have a productive marriage and happy kids.  Dani, is very specific her agenda and business model is based off of you getting results and sharing her message with someone else. She’s not going to tell you what your home business company will want you to hear, or your boss at work or your spouse.  She’s going to tell you what you need to hear to act, reduce stress and increase your income.

So if you understand how you got in the room, why you should take notes and the origin of the content you will learn.  Then the biggest thing you should do before you go or right after you get back is THANK THE PERSON THAT TOLD YOU TO GO.  There are 1,000′s and 1,000′s that hear a message and unfortunately in this world most people only care about themselves.  They hold things close to their chest and won’t share their “secrets”.  That’s not who that person is and is definitely not who Dani Johnson is. Thank the good Lord you needed a road map or a way to improve things and God put an awesome person in your life to guide you when you needed it.  That person who guided you to Dani’s training is one of a kind, make sure you value them.

To Your Success,

Have You Lost Your Dream?

By · Comments (0)

Bill Gates, wanted a computer in every home in America in the 90’s.

Steve Jobs, believed every person would walk around with a computer on them back in the 2000’s.

Benjamin Franklin, believed there could be a light bulb in every home one day.

Martin Luther King, believed the idea of separate but equal which was a common practice in his time would be obsolete one day.

These are just a few people that a vision was placed in them, they had a dream.  Even though the masses would not agree with them or even support them at the time.  They surrounded themselves around people who could help their dreams come true.  What did you dream once?  Back when you were 18 and 20 what did you think about accomplishing one day?  Maybe buying a house, being debt free, traveling and vacationing all over the world and having a life of freedom to enjoy your family that you expected back then?  Where are your dreams you once dreamed?  Are you pursuing even the little ones like maybe taking your kids or grand kids to Disney?  There have no doubt been people who wanted to change our world during their lifetimes and no doubt many have.

For some reason after we get a job and an income after high school as Dani Johnson says we shrink our dreams to meet our income.  We say things like it’s ok I don’t really need a big house.  You know I don’t have to take a fancy vacation and I don’t need a new car, it’s all a waste of money any way?  Maybe you once thought about all the people you could help and inspire to do more and be more, then you doubt how you can help because you are struggling yourself?  Your dreams were placed in you for a bigger purpose in the long run, it could be to simply live an amazing life and to prove to others so can they? Your kids and grandkids learn what to expect based off of what you accept in life.

You never have to lose your dreams.  God stated in his word, “A man without a vision will parish.” 

Surround yourself with the remnant that are going after their own dreams.  Surround yourself with the remnant that believe what you want is possible.  Be okay, living for a purpose versus just living for a Friday.  Surround yourself with a remnant, because our world is always impacted by the remnant.


Your Desires, Visions and Dreams are real for as long as you believe in them.
To Your Success,
Stacy O’Quinn


P.S. AS long as you believe you will walk in the direction of that belief, versus delay, justify and procrastinate until it’s to late.

#1 Key To Working From Home

By · Comments (0)

Most people put a ton of emphasis on finding the best product.  Almost as if some kind of product “sales itself”.  But the fact is no product sales itself, think of some of the most amazing products to reshape our modern times and which one sold itself? The answer is NONE, people sold the product.  But I believe if you want to succeed at marketing some type of product or service then you really need to focus on the industry not the product.  Because your product is really people and serving people, so you have to find out what industry are the people spending their money in.  You shouldn’t have to guess what they might want or may want!  You just look for what they are already spending money on and serve that need.  The reason you find out where the people are spending their money is so you really are providing and serving them and not “selling” anything.  People hate salesmen but they love to buy what they want!  You must be able to give them what they want.

I’ll show you an example of this.  This isn’t the only example but it’s one I know extremely well.  The travel industry…

Travel Industry facts source link below

-$2.1 trillion: Economic
output generated by domestic
and international visitors to the US alone
(includes $887.9 billion in direct
travel expenditures that spurred
an additional $1.2 trillion in
other industries)

-More than 3 out of 4 domestic trips taken
are for leisure purposes (78%).

-U.S. residents logged 1.6 billion person‑trips*
for leisure purposes in 2013.

-$209.5 billion: Wages shared
by American workers directly
employed by travel.

-The U.S. received 69.8 million international
arrivals in 2013. Of those, approximately
32.0 million were from overseas markets and
37.7 million were from Canada and Mexico.

-Each overseas traveler spends approximately
$4,500 when they visit the U.S. and stay on
average 17 nights.

For more Travel Industry facts and to better understand what I’m talking about read the link below

Think about this for a moment, people buy what they want versus what they need.  We all need health insurance but almost 50% of the population that can afford it
chooses not to buy it.  Also consider this most travel is purchased with a credit card, which means it’s an industry where people are spending money they don’t have
Therefore if you can help them save the money on the travel they are going to take anyway.  You could be in a lucrative niche.  This of course is one of the reasons,
I’ve been in this industry for so long.


Success begins with how you position yourself!

Caring, Is Mission Possible

By · Comments (0)

There are so many needs in the world.  People are down on their luck, there are those born into horrible situations, there are people who are victims of horrible crimes and circumstances, there are those are hurt from mean people, there are people that are starving, abused, neglected, thirsty and disabled.  The list of hurt and pain in this world can be overwhelming.  No matter how successful you become, you can give and give and give some more and it will never be enough.  It can feel hopeless when you really want to help people.

The truth is having a way to not only help people but empower them to give back and help others is the only way you really can make a difference.  If it was only up to you, there would never be enough and what would happen when you were no longer around?  You have to duplicate your ability and success which allows you to help in the first place.  This is why I love the idea of home based business and work form home opportunities.  Think about it!  When you do it and do it well you can not only give back but you can help other people learn so they have the freedom to give back!  Years ago when I started working from home I never imagined I’d make a six figure income.  Today I think about giving away a six figure income.  Imagine, it only takes 10 of us to do that and it’s a million dollars! 

Who would have thought? Ordinary people like you and me we can do extraordinary things!

If you’ve been following along you know that helping people improve their lives and making decisions and choices to live to their fullest potential is something that drives me every day I wake up!  Every year I’m focused on how many people I can help make a 6 Figure Income that year.  Now we are taking it one step farther with a select group of individuals that have a similar desire in them as well.

Some folks get passionate about giving people a fish (and there is a time and place for that) I’ve always been excited about teaching people to fish, so they have fish for the rest of their lives and for others.  Recently I’ve announced this Boot Camp training I’m doing regardless if I can directly benefit form you or not, I’m not charging for this training but after a strict application process, that required people to really reflect on who they were and what they wanted and their own desires to lead, impact and help others with Coastal Travel a small group has come together.  The cream has risen to the top if you will.

These are some pretty amazing people!  If you happen to know them or get a chance to learn from them in any way shape or form consider yourself blessed!  Since hundreds and hundreds heard the message but only a few qualified showing the desire and commitment it’s fair to say this is an extremely rare group!

Congratulations on committing to this intense Boot Camp because you care about others! You are an example not just in our industry but truly all of mankind.  Most people don’t care about others, unfortunately!

Each of these people have really grabbed a hold of that others count on them being the best that they can be.  I said it was a rare to find a group so focused and dedicated to others, but what’s most exciting is next year I will not be the only one looking to build 6 Figure Income earners.  For once I get to help others master helping others.  That’s more valuable than the most precious diamonds on earth.

I’m so stinking excited as I write this, talk about a new level for so many people.  But it just starts with a select few and this is who they are!

They Lied to You?

By · Comments (0)

It’s not lonely at the top! While I’m not at the top yet, I’m high enough to have a different perspective.   I’m not sure who ever started that rumor but as I’m hiking on a vacation here in the Blue Ridge Mountains I’m just reflecting on the things we hear.  And that is one phrase that just isn’t true.  While few people make the decisions to give it their all every day and to live life with a purpose.  Those that do are a close knit group that make it to the top.  They work together they succeed together and they seem to encourage others to join them “at the top”.  As a matter of fact, I see more people who have succeeded reaching out to help others do the same.  It’s a relatively, crowded close knit group but it’s definitely not exclusive.

Now that is the crux right there, see if someone tells you “It’s lonely at the top”?  Why would you want to be there,  maybe it seems like there’s undesirable people there? Possibly rude, mean, greedy and arrogant people right? Wrong!  So now we don’t want to be one of those people so we don’t have to try?  A revelation hit me, the person that said it’s “lonely at the top”.  That’s someone who hasn’t made it to the top.

It’s different for sure at the top.  Imagine how different life would be to be financially independent.  Imagine how crazy life would be to not have to work a standard 40 hour work week, but instead to work, travel and do on the schedule that you want? Question for you, who could you travel with regularly those stuck in their 40 hour a week jobs or those that have the same freedom you do?  Just because it’s different at the top, it definitely doesn’t make it lonely.

As a matter of fact your friendships will be stronger and your relationships will be more enjoyable.  You actually have time for them.

See Ya at the Top,
Stacy O’Quinn

More Details Released

By · Comments (0)

I’m blown away at the talented people I get to work with.  Amazing people, we may be ordinary moms, dads or grandparents but we aren’t staying that way.  We will become simply extraordinary.

Recently we announced the details of a special training for a small select group of people.  This small group will work together, to pay off our debt, increase our income, we will travel and create the most amazing memories all while working together to help others and make this world a better place.  As I’ve been working out this intimate small group training, one of the areas I know people struggle with is closing.  So I’ve made a decision that this training will be different than any other on how we teach closing.  First we will start coving the basics of closing, then we will go to building relationships and prospecting your clients and finally before we get in to the deep strategies on building a million dollar business we will first revisit closing on a more advanced level.

This content will be taught like it NEVER HAS BEEN BEFORE!  Every All Star has mastered the basics and we will be no different!  At least for the select few that are accepted that is!

There are a few people who have wasted NO TIME, applying for the Executive Boot Camp Training.

I want to say a huge congrats to people aren’t playing around.  These individuals heard the call and their desire prompted them to take action and to do it immediately.  If you happen to know any of these folks, then you know someone that has a rare quality.  You know someone who wants to lead from the front, not the back.  You know someone who is decisive and focused.  It would be a total honor to work with any of them one on one, they are special people who have crazy obstacles to over come, but made the commitment anyway.

1. Margaret Morency

2.  Kathy Brown – Told she couldn’t do it and is wasting her time (good thing she doesn’t listen to naysayers well)

3.  Dennis Kwasnycia – If you heard the launch call he is having shoulder surgury and could have used it as an excuse but he’s applied and determined to succeed regardless of the pain.

4.  Jason Baucom

5.  Landon Straton

6.  Heather Lefoll

7.  Dianne McGuigan – Already made over a half a million dollars in two years, but still was the very first one to send in her application when she heard the details of the Executive Boot Camp. Still teachable, rare trait and she’s not peaking yet, she’s just beginning.

Once again congrats to each of you for applying, you each will be hearing from me soon. 

REMEMBER, This Friday Sept 5th is the final day you can apply.  All application must be submitted by then to be considered!


To Your Success,
Stacy O’Quinn

P.S. The video at the top of this page was the video you had to watch prior to submitting your application.


P.P.S. You’ve probably prayed for something like this. For someone to show you teach you that next step and now it’s happening.  Every application will be prayerfully considered as well.

Executive Boot Camp

By · Comments (0)

This fall a group of people will begin a journey.  A journey where they will learn how to not only build wealth but be an example for others as well.  It doesn’t matter why you want to make a 6 Figure Income.  Probably you just would like the freedom of working form home and spending more time with your family and kids.  Maybe you want to be comfortable, have fun and actually take a vacation for once?  The fact is history will be made with a small group of people and your application must be in by September 5th

The Board of Directors tell us that Coastal has been around well over 25 years.  As a product it offers the highest payout of any thing else in the home business world with no end in sight. With that kind of background how can you rattle a company to the core?  You take a small group banded together having success and surpass anything anyone else has done before. There is no one else not just creating income like this and growing together but living life to the fullest, having an adventure traveling the world and building memories for our kids and grandkids.

This small group will be meeting for workshops weekly.  We will all be following the same model that Dani Johnson has laid out for our team.  We will all have access to the exact same advertising I’ve been using for over 6+ years.  As a team we will be iron sharpening iron! As a team we will be the remnant that inspires others not just in our industry but the world at large we live in.  As a team we will do our part to make a difference in the lives around us, starting with our on family.

We will Vacation, no question, we will travel to a resort where we can let our hair down and relax.  But it will be this small group and we will strategize how we go from 6 figures to multiple 6 or even 7 figures.  This will be a team like no other.

To Apply to the Executive Mentor Group you must join Coastal Travel.

And you must be willing to learn from a Millionaire as well as multiple 6 figure income earners who have already done it and continue to do it.

Do you qualify?

Are you ready for the next step?

How else would you ever make a 6 Figure Income from home?

What are you waiting for Apply Now!


To Your Success,
Stacy O’Quinn

Would You Be Chosen?

By · Comments (0)

The Executive Boot Camp screening process will be openly shared tomorrow.  In this article I’m going to share what it is and what it will take to be chosen.  First off if you’ve been working with me long or following what I do you know that the last time I did a mentorship training people made more money than they ever had and decreased their stress while paying off debt. I DIDN’T CHARGE A DIME FOR IT AND I WON’T THIS TIME EITHER.

Here are more of those results READ NOW

getting to the top

Now this new group will do more, be more and eventually take the next step that we didn’t do last time.  This new group will not only increase their income but also help others do the same.  This new group will not only get out of debt but help others do the same.  This new group will not only learn investment strategies to grow long term wealth for generations to come but the will help others to do the same.  Someone has to be the tip of the spear and lead the way to impact and help others and this new group will do just that!

How do you get chosen for this group?  First you apply but you have to show three things, first a choice, second commitment and finally a resolve and grit that you know what you want and you are committed to your success to get there!


1.  The Choice: – An amazing business man and NFL football player Shawn Harper said, “We are not born winners or losers we are born choosers.”  It all starts with the choice that you don’t want to be on the slow path to success.  You don’t want to allow another decade to go by and you not be where you know you should be.  That choice puts you in a place to not only be mentored but also follow through.  Nothing happens with out first making the choice I’m doing this no matter what, come hell or high water!

2. The Commitment: – The commitment is the glue that puts it all together.  To learn and apply you understand that while I may mentor you for free, it will take a commitment of time and money.  You have to commit to learn and to work.  Our goal is to increase your results while you learn and work, but with out commitment our mentorship can’t last long because it would go from learning to entertaining.  I’m not an entertainer and I’m after your success first and foremost.  If you are not committed I can’t be committed for you.

3. Grit and Resolve: – This will piggy back commitment but you have to understand as you build your skill and you create some success there will always be another skill needed.  Raising a infant doesn’t mean you know how to raise a toddler or a teenager.  We are going from “Glory to Glory” as God intended it so being prepared to conquer the unknown but know that it’s worth it no matter what is grit and resolve.

First making the choice, then having commitment to invest time and money in your success and maintaining a healthy dose of grit and resolve will get you chosen.  You can be the first one in your friends and family to be debt-free, to travel the world having a blast, helping others and follow a proven step by step approach.  Together we can do more!

Join us this Thursday on the All Star Call at 5pm as HISTORY is MADE!

To Your Success,
Stacy O’Quinn 


P.S. While I’m completely volunteering my time and most of the people I’m working with will not be able to directly impact me or my income.  This is not charity we will have strategy coupled with accountability… success is simple and we will get there together!  Because being at the top doesn’t have to be lonely.

P.P.S. I believe in you.

Have you ever been in a situation and you just needed a little guidance or direction on what to do next?  Have you ever needed a hand up vs a hand out but couldn’t find either?  How much would it have meant if someone showed you how to quickly pay off your debt in a moment of struggle.  How much would you have paid if someone showed you how to double or triple your income?  The fact is we value guidance in our time of need.  But so often in business people are more focused on the bottom line (which is important) but they don’t realize if you help others and focus on your clients, customers, partners and team members with a little guidance your own bottom line will take care of itself!

helping hand

In business so often it is about ME ME ME ME ME!  But you don’t have to be that way or be part of something like that.  We are about to launch something called the Executive Boot Camp with a small group of people I work with.  One of the key components of this training is learning the ability to help others.  Not just focusing on your own bottom line.  But in the Executive Boot Camp we will show how to duplicate your efforts and your income by helping someone else.  We’ve all heard the saying, “Help enough other people get what they want you will get what you want.”  But why don’t more people put that into action?

Personally I believe that God has created some incredible people out there.  I believe there are others that want to help and be that person to make a difference in another humans life.  Honestly in the beginning we are so focused on our own stresses and struggles of living life we just may not know how to focus on someone else.  But if we master this it can change not just our life but someone else’s life, family and their community.  You can be the difference!


Together we do more!
Stacy O’Quinn
