Please read how I will be doing just that.

Dear loyal follower

The fact is some of what I know and have collected over the past couple of decades and more in my mind does change lives, change business and has time and time again created happier people. Because if things are going smooth in business, you are happier.

I have turned around failing businesses almost overnight. I have massively increased sales and profits sometimes in hours. I have delivered some incredible results for my clients that literally have transformed lives and even relationships. (You can even see a youtube video of a client sharing her story of how information shared by myself saved the life of a young girl.)

In other words what I know and will share with you is powerful – powerful information. That same powerful information needs to be more accessible and shared with more people like yourself.

Thinking of changes

For a long time I have been thinking of ways to create more change, more happiness and of course much more effective results in your business and life through Orange Beetle.

A problem has been over the past few years I have become more and more reclusive behind my keyboard only working with maybe one or two clients per year. Working mainly with one or two big clients will continue of course  but I want to share more with clients like yourself that maybe feel my services are too high to access in relation to what your income or turnover is right now. I’ve fixed that as you’ll see.

I’ve also so felt it would be better if we had a ‘drop in space’, meeting space and a place we can meet and join and even talk over a coffee without any pressure. After all it is a good thing to see a real face, a real person where you can really get a sense of them and who they are from a simple handshake and reaction. I have now fixed this also.

Since first moving to our new home in Hale, Cheshire one priority has been finding the right space to get these ideas of sharing, becoming more accessible and more open really kick-started.

Space to rent

One day just two weeks ago my darling wife Tamuna and myself went for a coffee not far from where we live. As we came out of the coffee shop facing was a sign that said SPACE FOR RENT. We walked in, walked up the stairs, looked at the place and said there and then YES we want it. Just under 1000 Sq ft of space we could easily transform and create an environment where we can share more into your business and your life.

Orange Beetle H.Q also known as ICONOCLAST H.Q. OPENS MAY 1st 2106

On May 1st we will fired up and ready to get things started.

I have named the space ICONOCLAST for reasons that may or may not be obvious.

Now you might be thinking this…

“Alan I would love to come but you are just too expensive”

The reality is working with me is free when you look at the returns of clients that do everything they are shown to do but that’s another story for later.

For now I have taken a serious look at fees and how I can make more openings to share more with you. I have added those pricing ideas on to the end of this email and as you will see they are prices to get excited about.

And for my premium rate VIP clients things will also change for the better as you will discover over time.

Who Is Alan Forrest Smith and Why Listen to Me?

I used to be a hairdresser but needed a life-change urgently. I re-educated myself fast. By 1998-9 I was creating advertising for others and consulting for other businesses. By 2001-2002 I was getting enquiries from all over the globe about my work. By 2003 I sold my salons. In 2004 I did my very first master class. By 2008 I had taken my master classes all over the globe. By 2016 my reputation travels well before me as a master trainer, consultant and mentor. If you need to know more depth just Google me!

I am also a

  • Published author
  • Writer
  • Poet
  • Consultant
  • Copywriter
  • Strategist
  • Philosopher
  • Philanthropist

My day can be filled with …

  • Riding motorbikes
  • My kids
  • Reading
  • Making business
  • Helping others
  • Creating lasting wealth
  • Designing a life that creates real happiness
  • And … work I love to wake up for!

And many more things I share and do in my life.

Today I have created a life that gives me a life-style most would die for (so they tell me).

I can only live the way I live today by creating the ‘job’ I have custom created for myself. I’ll show you how to do exactly the same (if that’s what you want to know?)

My fee for consulting alone now sits at £700.00 per hour. Clients find me and fly me to their country and put me up in first class accommodation just to consult and advise them.

  • Like Jens who flew me to Switzerland to consult for 4 days.
  • Like Caroline that flew me to the highlands of Scotland to consult for 2 days.
  • Like John who flew me to Melbourne Australia to consult with his business for 3 days.
  • I can charge upwards of £10,000 for writing sales letters – clients are more than happy to pay.
  • I work and live a life that suits me in fact I work 3 days a week for five hours on those days!
  • I’ve been living my life and running my business like this for years now – very successfully.
  • I can share that and more with you.

The Most Perfect Time To Create Your Own Future Is At My Copy Writers Mastermind Session

As you have seen on the news – whole economies are crashing. Banks are unstable. Cash investing is struggling while investments become worthless. Businesses are going to the wall – bust – broke – bankrupt on a huge scale everyday. That means jobs will vanish, jobs are vanishing!

Your job, your business … you can decide for yourself? Can you continue to take more risks by allowing others to control your life or will you take control of your own life and build a future that is recession proof?

Time and time again over the years I have worked with and mentored those trapped in the cycle of jobs, promotions, corporate ladders only to be unexpectedly exited by the next best thing. Fired, laid-off or burnt out by over work. These are the very same guys above you have seen and read about that have created incredible new lives, taking control and doing what suits them and their lifestyles!

I know that is what you’d like or you wouldn’t have read this far.

When you come to my classes and if you are familiar with seminars, training weekends you’ll find…

  • NO stage selling
  • NO pseudo experts
  • NO pretenders
  • NO NLP techniques
  • NO persuasion technique

  • PROVEN information that has a track record of success already
  • TIMELESS business practices
  • ALAN FORREST SMITH 31 years business experience and front-line life and business training

You’ll discover how to take everything within you right now, make the changes required, then be given the skills and helped and guided along a new path that will be supported by myself 100%.

GUARANTEE: It’s really simple: I do not offer cash refunds unless you can prove I absolutely didn’t deliver what is on this page.

I’m not saying you’ll walk away anything like me (god forbid ;-) but I am offering you an opportunity to spend a day with myself learning, discovering and having fun creating brand new businesses and skills that are going to be with you for life.
