MARQUEL’S FAVORITE QUOTE

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ― Marianne Williamson

112: Accidental Success

SUCCESS & ADVERSITY

What is accidental success, and how is it related to adversity? The answer is fascinating, and it may not be what you expect.

Jeff Hall, today’s guest, has achieved massive success with Overflow Cafe, the company he created to help businesses master the SEO game and achieve high rankings online.

You may be surprised when you learn that his journey took him from one accidental success to another. Each time Jeff developed a new skill, he did it by taking bold action in the face of adversity. He put one foot in front of the other, even when we was stepping into the dark.

WINNING AGAINST THE ODDS

Adversity is relative, so what kind of challenges did Jeff Hall face and overcome? Here are just a few:

  • A childhood of abject poverty
  • Bites from bird eating spiders and fire ants
  • Derision as a student for having only one pair of broken down shoes
  • Humiliation for lacking the money to join school outings

DRIVEN BY PAIN

Jeff Hall’s outer world was often very tough. His inner game made him unstoppable, a trait he learned from his remarkable grandmother.

Jeff’s circumstances could have created a powerful victim story for him to live into. Instead, Jeff turned each painful setback into victory.

In this interview, you will learn:

  • How Jeff became a resourceful salesman at the age of seven
  • How he became a computer wiz without knowing a thing about computers
  • How lying about his age took him closer to success
  • How the name Overflow Cafe was just another accident

DISASTER TO MASTER

Today, Jeff’s knowledge and skill, and his company’s expertise offer businesses a powerful unfair advantage in our digital marketplace.

Love it or hate it, businesses need the Internet to grow and thrive in the 21st century. A key ingredient to growth online is strong SEO. Jeff and his Overflow Cafe offer you that.

It’s a wonderful ironic twist that a young man who knew nothing about computers became an internationally recognized SEO expert. He literally proved what one of my mentors, David T.S. Wood, often says, “Every master was once a disaster.”

You will find the life lessons and the business savvy in this interview with Jeff Hall eyeopening and highly entertaining.

You may even tweak your own inner game to make you unstoppable in the face of any obstacle.
