50 Shades of Jay # 31 – The Super Shade
Separate Resources From My Body Of Work
These include wonderful videos, specialized courses, highly provocative Deep-Dive interviews – – both of me and by me, self assessments, eclectic presentations, and some wonderful surprises.
Most of THESE items are non-duplicative to the resources here on the “Shades” page. You will find it fascinating that the resource collection provides clear-cut explanations of exactly what each item contains – – before you even choose to access it.
This was done because we asked people for an opt-in on this page, before they received open access to the total collection of resources.
It’s still set up not to open – – until after you’ve fully reviewed the offerings, then opted in. Please don’t feel uncomfortable opting in. You are welcome to opt in if you wish access, and then immediately unsubscribe if you are at all uncomfortable. BTW, we probably already have your email anyway (lol) or you wouldn’t be coming to this private page. But trust me, these additional resources are more than worth examining carefully.
Also, and always, we are grateful and eager to see these resources shared generously with as many deserving entrepreneurs as you can help us reach.

In 1997, I wrote a 4 ½ page feature newsletter article on the Strategy of Preeminence that totally, utterly, stunningly transformed the thinking of something like 25,000, then entrepreneur subscribers.
I haven’t looked at that article for 16 years. A good friend scanned it and sent it to me to re-reflect on last week.
It’s still provocative as heck. If you’d like to read IT, it’s here for your intellectual enjoyment. No strings attached. Enjoy!
How to get investors, co-founders, resource providers-galore – Listen to Jay’s recent presentation for the Thiel Fellowship andor download the complete transcript.
In this 1 hour presentation conducted in Canada, Jay thoroughly and systematically teaches this group of realtors and entrepreneurs “The Meaning of Business Life.”
More Gifts For You:
My two, top-rated books.
The Sticking Point Solution: Nine ways a business gets itself stuck, stagnates or stalls and how to correct these problems quickly, definitively profitably and safely. I recommend you start here. The Sticking Point tends to be more strategically focused. Getting Everything tends to be more tactical methodology base. There are 336 examples in Getting Everything. There are more immediately implementable transactional guidance/recommendation examples in The Sticking Point. So, Start there.
A complete and thorough grounding on The Strategy of Preeminence
I learned it from a client who used this belief system to hurtle their company to dominant leadership in an ultra-competitive industry. More interestingly, they out-sold their closest competition by 40% and had margins 35% higher. This “mini-collection” explains how they did it – how I do it – how YOU can do it, too!
This strategy should become the underpinning of your culture, hiring, marketing, client interaction – everything should flow from this powerful belief system and new world business view.
You receive three components: One, a transcription of a live discussion I did of the concept to a huge conference group. Two, the key belief points to always focus on. Three, 2 videos I did to seperate groups, one several years ago and one this year. Four, a “Cliff’s notes” document containg the most important points for you to focus on. This should be next in your progression cycle.
Why some businesses achieve many times
more success in their field than all their competitors
Classic interviews of me done by Tony Robbins and Fran Tarkenton. These are considered timeless. They are penetrating examinations of many (but not all) of my best high-performance philosophies, strategies and foundational thinking. Both Tony and Fran separately interviewed me for hours and hours. Then a famous editor spent months cutting out all the fat. While both interviews approach the same topics – Tony and Fran went about the process totally differently. So the interviews are intriguingly complementary. You get them both audio and digitally. I recommend the Tony Robbins version to listen to first, because it’s extremely evocative. Read the transcript next – before progressing to the Fran Tarkenton version. Do the same with it.
My interview of Stephen R. Covey on “Effectiveness”. Stephen R. Covey is author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. I conducted a deeply penetrating interview with him where he invested over 90-minutes answering my “hot potato” questions about effectiveness. I’ve taken the interview and had it carefully transcribed for you so it’s easy for you to read and learn from.
“My interview of Stephen M.R. Covey on “The Speed of Trust.” I’m purposely putting this interview here – – – between my own proprietary resources. Because it explains to any business person how to command great trust, loyalty, certainty, connectivity, following and multiplied performance results from everyone you deal with – meaning buyers, vendors, team members. People who’ve read this transcript say it totally shifted their thinking on everything from communication, advertising, hiring, selling, motivation, persuasion, etc. See what it does for you.
Abraham 101: This is a quick, simple short-course review-primer of my foundational basic philosophies and strategies. It’s good to quickly peruse after going through the preceding five elements – just to make certain you’re not overwhelmed, overloaded or failing to see how things interconnect in my business building world.
The Abraham Mind Shift Challenge: If you’re ready now to suspend linear thinking and explore/encounter some utterly unclassifiable fresh ways to see possibilities, opportunities, options and gaps none of your competitors ever fathom – – – this 63 page compendium provides it. Something like 45 highly stimulating, paradigm-stretching case study examples, stories and illustrations. Don’t read this document until you’re ready.
John Dudeck: Highest and best use theory. Provides penetrating comprehensive interview with no-nonsense, effectiveness expert who breaks personal and team performance/achievement and performance enhancement down to simple fundamentals- It challenges you to simply take a sobering look at what your business REALLY pays you to do for it – and perform a reality check to see if you’re delivering the goods!
I interviewed 57 remarkable business icons (everything from top organization – Harbor, Who Moved My Cheese to famed experts at persuasive influence) — dividing them into panel groups of approximately 5 experts per panel (assembled based on their specialized expertise). We (my interview partner and I) posed 5-7 critical issues/challenges/problems entrepreneurs face to each panel and asked each expert to answer separately on each question.
The vast majority of responses were golden. A few are abstract. But most provided exceptionally actionable insight that any CEO/entrepreneur or P&L responsible manager can immediately put into use.
An outrageous collection of business lessons, life secrets, high-achievement “ethical short-cuts,” performance enhancement “accelerators”, explosive ways to leverage-up your impact/output/results.
This is a one-of-its-kind “Collector-Worthy” compendium of deep, penetrating, Socratic interviews I personally conducted in the last two months with six legendary Super Stars of business, sports, entertainment, arts and entrepreneurship.
Rather than see the electric ideas I “mined” out of each legend’s mammoth brain go unused–I took each unabridged full-length interview (averaging one & a half non-stop hours/15-20 transcribed pages each), combined them ALL together into one wildly enriching compendium–totaling 100 pages of rich wisdom, exceptional insights and rarely discussed fresh “slants”….on business, life, personal performance, competing masterfully…and so much more.
How to Find Influencers and Win Friends, The Right Way – Dominate Social Media, using methods even the big companies don’t know. I collaborated with one of the technology world’s most sophisticated research groups to come up with a four-part, insightful look at how a business can best master social media with total authenticity, connectivity and maximum positioning impact. This report is unprecedented.
Putting my ideas to work, in real business situation
Videos of me in action: Two types, long and short. Both offer exceptional instructional, illustrative guidance of how my mind works in real-world business situations.
Here you’ll find 35 two to four minute long “quick fix” videos (external site, not a download) I did, called the Abraham Advantage. They each take on a powerful topic, concept, and distinction and clearly explain/explore it in a way that causes you to think deeply. Some are more relevant to a given business situation than others. But feel free to select any of them by their descriptions.
Hot Seats/Lightning Rounds: In these videos, you’ll be able to watch me roll up my sleeves and embrace highly, specific business situation scenarios and issues – in a non-theoretical, no-nonsense, straightforward, high-level, problem solving process.
The hot seats reveal more probative examples of how I think, work, function. The lightning rounds show how quickly it’s possible to re-think a given business situation.
Hopefully, both examples will demonstrate application of what you’ve learned from my other resources (you’ve studied) so far – Also, hopefully you’ll see that my grasp of different business scenarios is quite expansive – and perhaps it’ll inspire you (if suitable) to want to talk with me directly.
Two Questionnaires: Here I’ll provide two questionnaires. One is an 87-question self-assessment designed to help you examine how your business really stacks up. It poses many never-before-considered issues, facets and performance dynamics of your business you’ll want to carefully examine, explore and reflect upon.
The second document is a version of a 200+ “monster questionnaire” I ask prospective private fee and performance-based clients to answer. I DO NOT recommend you try and fully answer this longer questionnaire now. Merely review it to see if you even can and let the haunting realization that many of these questions have never been thought about – challenge you to take all you learn from these resources more seriously.
Nine Drivers of Exponential Profit Explosion. There are nine, key “force factors” or “drivers” a business can concentrate on for highest impact and performance improvement. I’ve tried to quickly list and explain each force here so you’ll start looking at every action, effort, activity and interaction your business conducts more attentively.
Creativity Switch Transcript. This is a transcript of a disarmingly simple, yet profoundly effective short course instructional we created a while ago to help propel linear thinkers into creative, innovative, inventive, possibility-based creators of value and agents of competitive change.
Originally it was done in audio format. This is the literal transcript of that short-course primer. If you do the simple requests required – your paradigm will expand – your world of possibility will stretch.
RECENTLY, I was the “Surprise Guest Presenter” at a unique business conference–focused squarely on teaching business owners the “ins-and-outs” of successful partnering. Rudolph Giuliani was the keynote. Oprah Winfrey’s friend, Steadman Graham was one of many speakers. But they brought ME there—for one reason:
To blow the lid off people’s linear-minded thinking about all that’s possible—by doing more inventive forms of power partnering deals with other organizations.
Anyhow… I spoke twice… Each time for about 90 minutes. My working title was called “Maximizing The Leverage In Relational Capital”. I barely got through a tenth of my slides…YET my presentations (remember I did TWO) were rated “The Best, most provocative…stimulating, possibility-provoking discussions of the event.”
If you’ve ever wondered what kinds of things keep me up at night… what kind of pressing issues I so desperately want to find easier, better, quicker, more efficient solutions for that will help YOU — the hard working entrepreneur — so you can make a significant difference in your life, the life of your customers, the life of your team and ultimately your family’s life, then you’ll want to download and consume this series of 8 philosophical journeys thru the deep recesses of my constantly probing mind.
Here is a recent presentation I did for some of the world’s top Speakers, Authors and entrepreneurs at SANG – the Speaker and Authors Networking Group which is an annual gathering of some of the top minds in the media and publishing world.
In October I shook up the minds and challenged attendees of SANG – The Speaker and Authors Networking Group to “The Ultimate 45 Minute Reality Check.”
Explaining – Comparing – Describing what he did on that stage in less than an hour is difficult. Suffice it to say that in that period, Jay only talked a total of, maybe, 17 minutes… but what he got the highest performing minds in the room to confront, then do, then share was… well, it was utterly incomparable to any reference model I could describe. So I want to share the entire, unhedged/unabridged 45 minutes of video footage – I promise you’ll find it wildly stimulating.
Listen in on this unique presentation I gave for the folks at Kinder Reese and discover what I really think of Steve Jobs and my surprising revelation of what the key to his success truly was!
Then watch me interview the owners of the company, Jay Kinder and Michael Reese, about how they built their agency. Then watch me interview their top sales people – the high performers – who reveal the distinctions that helped them rise to the top of the sales charts!
Back when I conducted those $15,000-$20,000 per person Protégé-Mentor programs – I spent the first four hours of the first day of EVERY five-day event – painstakingly sharing with attendees exactly/precisely and in stage-by-stage steps, activity-by-activity – exactly how I went from Jay Abraham, young, unknown, up-and-coming marketing “aspirant,” to media-dubbed “Marketing Genius-Extraordinaire.”
I shared my life in marketing (up to that freeze-frame point in time), BECAUSE I felt it would best demonstrate and connect the dots for people (like you) on how vitally important it is to travel outside your industry — or your current reference sphere — to expand your perspective, to enhance your comprehension, to liberate your sense of possibility – to empower you to never again get stuck.
I want you to watch the same four-hour segment I mandated that everyone attending my five-day $15,000-$20,000 protégé-mentor live program experience. I promise you’ll be impacted meaningfully by watching this video.
Land Your Dream Job – Expert Advice from a Top Headhunter
This is a wonderful e-book a partner of ours created on “How to be Your Own Headhunter.” Simply put, he’s a world-famous headhunter we have an interest in. But he knows that well-skilled people like many of you – deserve a far better career future – if you’re not going to start your own business, right now.
So he created a one-of-a-kind book to guide you on do-it-yourself, masterful headhunting.
Think of it as having a six-figure headhunter on your shoulder guiding you through the moves and maneuvers required to secure the premier of career positions – in an economy that sucks. It’s a great, self-directing instruction that sells nothing.
A fresh new slant on the power of Relational Capital
A fresh new slant on the power (and specific possibilities) available to you–by utilizing the infinite power of Relational Capital. I already posted two, separate 90- min. videos and transcriptions of the session I did approximately a year ago on Relational Capital. Well, I did two “more-advanced”, 90-min. sessions a month ago.
These were tied in to an experimental beta program we offered, so I analogized and demonstrated (more literally and tangibly) exactly/precisely/expansively–how many additional ways a business owner or aspiring entrepreneur could use this powerful dimension of understanding.
We’ve just taken the full-length, transcription of that double-session and distilled it down to its “quintessential essence“—just the meat!. The transcript is yours—again, without cost/without any required action.
Discovering the Greatness Within You – Interview of Jay by Nightingale-Conant (audio and transcript).
A distilled transcription of a 4-hour session I did two months ago on the concept of what “value” REALLY means to the receipient. People paid $1600 to hear this. The transcript condensation is yours–gratis.
Do your marketing efforts overlook the obvious?
If you own or control a profit oriented business, you should probably talk to Jay Abraham. That’s because Mr. Abraham is an absolute wizard when it comes instantly increasing sales and producing an almost overnight high-speed cash flow increase for nearly any type of owner operated business.
Willie Jolley – Fun, fascinating interview Jay did with Hall of Fame speaker for his nationally broadcast Sirius radio, talk show.
