Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

I receive a daily health newsletter that usually has very good health information. But once in a while they give a little tidbit of "information" with a link to go to read more on. Essentially what happens is it is a "letter" with some kind of offer.
Today's was: Turning the internet upside down"
The offer is to purchase a DVD by JIM SHERIDAN regarding a home business opportunity.
Has anybody heard of JIM SHERIDAN's "opportunity" to guide you into business through this DVD?

notmuchgetsbyou :rolleyes:

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

I don't have an answer, but I have exactly the same question.
I get an email news update,
and received the same info. about getting the dvd by Jim
Sheridan. When you google "Jim Sheridan" you just get hits on the film director by the same name -- except that's also how I found this post!
I am also interested in knowing if anyone out there knows if this is legit.
The email news site it came from is usually very reliable, but....
If it seems too good to be true..???

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

Not before today....I got something a little different from you two. It's long so I will only post portions...actually he will be holding a summit in Orlando in this one.

My name is Jim Sheridan. Maybe you've heard of me, but probably not...

I'm an internet millionaire.

My "Instant Internet Income" home-study program has been one of the top-selling "how-to" courses on the internet, with nearly 10,000 satisfied customers!

And, no, I didn't make my money from selling this home-study program... I made some, sure, but it's a drop in the bucket compared from what I've made using the Instant Internet Income system. More about that in a minute... First let me tell you how my home-study program came to be...

My Instant Internet Income program was successful not because I'm some kind of brilliant internet genius, but just the opposite really...

I have NO special skill or ability - or 'gift' that you could never have. I was well below average at school. I went to college (mainly to meet girls!) but dropped out. If you come and visit me at my office, as some of my students have done, I'll dig out those 'certificates' and show you (if you promise not to laugh!).

I then spent years doing a job I disliked intensely until. . . well. . . one day I just said "ENOUGH!" It was then I decided to give that door to financial freedom a push, fully expecting it to be locked tight . Friends, family, teachers - all had told me it would be locked, so I hadn't even bothered trying before!

To be perfectly honest, I did have something 'special' which got me through that door.

Want to know what it is?

The WILL to LISTEN to opportunity knocking and the DETERMINATION to TAKE ACTION and succeed.

I 'm afraid you're going to need this too - so if you can't stoke-up a little fire in your belly and open your mind, forget your plans for one day breaking free!

Do not proceed any further because YOU WILL NOT SUCCEED at any kind of business venture without these qualities.

I want you to succeed by copying the exact and specific plan I'll be explaining to you IN PERSON, but you can only do this if you are prepared to rediscover these qualities within you.

Still with me? Great!

The only reason this would not work exactly the same way for you, would be if you didn't even try.

I hope you will agree that you owe it to yourself to give it a go. I have no special skills which you don't have.

What's that? I must have had money to start this off with? Forget it!

I Started With Nothing But Debt

Just a few years ago, all I owned was a pile of debt (maybe you are in the same position?) No matter how much extra work I put in; no matter how many promotions I got at work, there was always too much month left at the end of the money - know the feeling?

It was just like pouring water into a bucket full of holes!

I wanted a better life for myself and my family but didn't have a clue how to get it...

The Trouble With 'Get-Rich Quick Schemes'

So I started reading all those mailings I was getting promising the world (don't they all?). Most of them were written by broke people trying to scam a few bucks out of other broke people. Sad but true. I even kept the whole thing secret from my wife, I was so embarrassed! I mean, there's a bit of a stigma attached to 'how to make money' things isn't there?

I always thought it was suspicious how the person advertising the product didn't actually use it himself!

I mean, if this self-proclaimed "Money Guru" was so great, why wasn't he using his own methods? Reading between the lines and doing a bit of homework proved that many times, the person offering the product was flat-broke !

Why the hell would I want to learn about making money from someone who doesn't have any? Beats me!

And then there were all the stupid multi-level marketing schemes offering me the 'privilege' of selling THEIR products and services for them to build my own 'down-line'.

How generous of them!

But once again, this didn't pass my 'credibility test' because it seemed few people sold anything to an end-user! It was just one big 'down-line' of hopeful, lazy people - with some poor sucker at the bottom struggling to shift a few items of stock to real buyers.

I was starting to give up...

"Hot-Wire" The Internet In 2006 Super-Summit

At this unique event I'm going to reveal exactly how I have made a significant fortune using the Instant Internet Income program. I'm going to take you inside my program and show you how powerful it really is... how fast you can start making profits online... by becoming an Internet Deal Broker...

Don't panic! Don't be scared off by the technical-sounding name. I like to put a name to it because people always ask what I do - and my answer sure impresses them!

Remember, you don't need any skills, education or experience to do this. Your friends and family will be impressed by the title, but you and I will know the truth. Don't worry. It'll be our little secret. Really though, ANYONE CAN DO THIS...

An Internet Deal Broker has one main goal: to set-up as many streams of automatic income for themselves as possible and then to sit back, relax and enjoy life to the fullest.

The reason I've stayed so quiet about this for so long is because once I discovered it, I started making such good money on the net...so why on earth would I want to share my secrets with everybody else?

What Would You Pay to Attend An Event Like This?

Knowledge like this could easily be worth thousands upon tens of thousands of dollars to you over just a few months. But you won't even have to pay thousands for this live training event.

You can attend this exclusive event for just $997! No, I haven't accidentally missed off a "1" at the beginning! The price really is just nine ninety-seven... That's thousands less than most internet conferences. (One conference I attended recently went for $4,000 and that's not uncommon.)

I know that if you're serious you won't waste a second in securing your seat because you know a good opportunity when you see one. The people who dither around and procrastinate are LEAST likely to succeed in business - FACT. Seating at this event is limited and because of the low-price I expect it to sell-out quickly... so, if you're at all interested it would be a good idea to reserve your seat now... (you can cancel at anytime up until the end of the first day of the Super-Summit for a 100% full refund). And to make this absolutely irresistible (and fun)...

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

Hi All,

I get a daily newsletter called Early To Rise. It has business, personal and health info and so forth. It is run by Agora, and Jim Sheridan/Michael Masterson are featured article providers to the dailies.

Jim Sheridan/Sheridan Enterprises Group has a website linked in my daily ETR emails (don't know if I can post the URL here though). They have several products available aside from the Instant Internet Income program, but I have not ordered any. I am NOT associated with Jim in any way, nor do I endorse any of his products. I have been exploring and investigating his opportunities as you all have. :)

Argent.

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

I noticed that your threads on this guy are from back in 2005, but I just got an email with his offer and need to find out if it is legit! Thanks

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

I bought the product a couple of years ago and as was the case back then, looked at it once and it sat on the shelf ever since.
I just pulled it out today and was going through it ,it is good information some a little dated and the useful links to copy writing and services are mostly affiliate links.

But what I am not sure of is the link that is in the cd as an update for the information takes you to a site by Mark Edwards, thats how I came upon this forum by a Google for Jim sheridan to see if I could find him and find out what is happening.

I will post again if I get any other info

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

I bought Jim Sheridan's "Instan Internet Income" program a few months ago. It claims that you can start making money online without any money to invest, but that's not true. IT does take some money, not lots, but some. I actually found the program to be very very boring and the information not very well presented.

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

A quick update on emails to Jim Sheridan's course Mark Edwards has taken over the course apparently he was the website mechanic behind Jim's enterprise. I emailed him but the only way I was able to contact him was to enter my email for contact details. I have tried to let him know I was just interested in what was happening with the promise of updates but all I get is an offer for his course and the promise that he is the best thing since sliced bread Yeah right !!!! thanks for the personal interest Mark.

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

Hi Guys,

Funny this, as I looked up on google about the internet deal broker and found this Jim Sheridan coming up a lot.

However in the email I received with the link to the internet broker http://www.fsponline-recommends.co.u...32642&l=160382&

Check it out it should work, but it is by a guy called John Alexander and at the bottom says the company is called breaking your mould ltd.

I smell a rat, I wont be buying it!!

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

I note recent activity on this old topic (that seems to have rumbled on since 2005) again which I stumbled on doing due diligence on the Jim Sheridan product, too.

Whilst this product may not exactly be a scam, I think it is pretty much 'old hat' material to anyone who currently dips into the regular IM offers regarding making-a-buck online.

The missing info, which is the 'scammy; part of the sales page, seems to be the lackl of mention of the need for a pretty good sized 'list' in order to really make any money...but then who doesn't know that by now? (naturally implying it costs nothing to start earning without mentioning the likely pretty big Adwords bill to get enough useful leads is a bit questionable)

I suspect Agora saw the 'main chance' to revive this offer through its all-too-numerous 'free' financial tip sheet 'newsletters' (which are thinly veiled pitch fests for paid-for-info products like the 'Sheridan' product and other 'stock and shares' stuff).

Naturally the shaky investment environment may be killing off their usual sign ups for a years Tip Sheet subscription...but some bright spark saw that there would be increasing numbers of 'desperate' folks who might see this 'how to crack the Internet' pitch for the first time.

Re: Anybody heard of Jim Sheridan?

Yes I have! In fact I bought her DVD. He says he was a pilot in the UK and started making money writing for NICHE MARKETS. He says he wrote his first e-book on fly-fishing. On-going income not influenced by recession because it's a small market. Gives tips on how to sell on Internet, use Google for advertising etc. Problem is: finding that niche-market he says is so easy to find. He suggests going to your local bookstore and look at specialised magazines for answers. I'm afraid I couldn't come up with anything I was interested in personally as a nich market. Basically I feel I wasted my money.

Work from home: R50 000 per month?

PLEASE people - take care. I fell for this trick twice. They make it sound as if you can quit your job. You register, and enrol with a lot of companies. They pay a pittance, and the overseas ones give you points - you don't qualify for their perks like free dinner tickets to the local restaurant. As soon as you fill in SA, mostly you get a message "sorry not available in your country". All depends on your income and a lot on age. I never made a cent. All bull .....t

Re: Work from home: R50 000 per month?

Just want to add something here: do not be fooled with the "money back" guarantee. I tried it believe me. They all advertise "nothing to lose", but pay & you don't see anything back. Click on the icon "money back please", and it says "being processed". That is ALL. No money back - webpage also could disappear. These people prey on the vulnerable who need money - people like that are despicable.
