Who Is Vitaly Grinblat And How Can He Help You?
Hi, my name is Vitaly Grinblat and I want to thank you for visiting my blog.
Since you’re on this page, you probably have some questions like…
Who the heck is Vitaly Grinblat?
Why should I listen to him?
And can he really help me with this whole internet marketing thing?
Pull up a chair, sit back, and I’ll share with you how I went from being scared to pick up a phone to call on my very first prospect almost 20 years ago…. to becoming a Million Dollar copywriter.
That’s someone who writes sales ads and emails. Actually, by my count I’ve generated near 8-Figures (that’s almost $10,000,000) in sales for myself and my clients.
That’s me speaking to a group of entrepreneurs at the No Excuses Summit in Las Vegas.
But I’m jumping WAY AHEAD of myself.
Because I certainly didn’t start there.
I’m not going to bore you with pictures of my life, as I’m sure you could care less about this stuff, but if you’d like to know a bit about my background and how I’ve arrived to a point where I’m able to make more money working from home, and having the ultimate freedom to work when I choose to (not someone else), let me give you glimpse into my life.
I’m a serial entrepreneur and have been my whole life. Since 1995, from the age of 19, I’ve been formally involved in my own business.
Actually I started even earlier than that. First I got involved in a jewelry business, and at 17 thought I knew enough to run my own little shop.
So I borrowed some money. Dropped out of school (imagine the surprised and shocking looks I got from my family)… and was going to build a big business.
I quickly learned how partners can screw you and by 18 I ran out of money and lost several thousand dollars (which seemed like a million at the time) and had to basically sell off all the equipment at a fraction of what I paid for it.
Now most people would look at that as failure. As a matter of fact, most would stick their tail between their legs and quietly crawl back to playing it safe and settle for mediocrity.
I guess I’m just not made that way. Like the famous quote by Gene Kranz, NASA flight director, to Appollo 13 goes “Failure is NOT an option”.
I also sold Kirby vacuum cleaners, door to door. The ones that cost $1,600 (or so they used to). I only lasted there for 3 weeks, but actually sold 3 units. Something about going door to door in a suit trying to convince people to let me in and shampoo their carpet for “free” (that’s the sales pitch) just wasn’t for me.
Although I must say it was an interesting experience.
I got to meet people who were getting high during my presentation.
Shampoo one guy’s car.
Do a presentation in a ghetto on the East Side of Detroit.
Fun, isn’t it?
But what I did realize very quickly, is if you wanna make BIG BUCKS… you have to sell something.
And most people have a very poor opinion of sales and sales people, which is totally understandable.
After all, the typical image that comes to mind is one of a “used car salesman”. And there are plenty of them out there. But that’s NOT what professional sales is all about.
Before turning 19 I got involved in the financial services field, where I spent over 10 years, prior to discovering that you can make money from home on your computer without EVER having to make sale (in person) or call anyone or prospect anyone, all that crazy stuff I did for over 10 years, that most people wouldn’t do if their life depended on it.
This is where I cut my teeth in selling and persuasion.
Here was the problem though.
You see at that point I’ve done more than 1,500 kitchen table presentations in my business, have recruited dozens of people into my agency, and personally had over 1,000 client accounts I was managing.
I’ve probably made in excess of 20,000 or more phone calls over the years to people I didn’t know trying to see them or get them to come to my office. For 5 years in a row, I did 2 meetings EVERY single week, without an exception, unless I was out of town. A meeting for potential agents and weekly training for existing agents. Fun wouldn’t you agree?
Now I did have some success with it.
I was making money, winning trips and awards and it all looked GREAT from the outside.
This is my wife and I getting recognized in Maui, Hawaii for achieving the designation of a Regional Vice President, back in 2001.
However… I worked day and night and with small child at home it wasn’t easy and it wasn’t the kind of life I wanted to live.
Although business was good, THIS WASN’T the lifestyle I was after. I was willing to work HARDER than anyone else to have more freedom, but it seemed like the harder I worked, the more work I created for myself. And although I was one of the top producers, winning all kinds of awards and exotic trips to places like Hawaii, Vegas, Boca Raton, etc…. ultimately I still had to get up everyday and do all the manual labor it takes to manage that business.
See I wanted to have a business that gave me MONEY freedom as well as TIME freedom. Do what I want to do when I want to do it. And honestly, I got very, very good at sales, but I was sick and tired of chasing people, making calls, follow ups, and constantly having to rely on my daily drive and motivation (which I did all those years) to go and make money for my family.
I had a business, I just didn’t have the freedom I wanted, and I became a slave to it.
In September of 2005 I somehow stumbled onto some information about making money online and actually made my first online sale for $50, which was enough to get me excited about the fact that you truly can leverage your time and have lots of freedom IF you have a business that works while you don’t.
Because if I can make 1 $50 sale, that means I can make 10, 100, 1,000 or more.
So I committed to studying and implementing internet marketing strategies and techniques, and over the next 3 months, I started making more money online than I ever did in my financial business.
Because the internet allows you to leverage your time by being in many places at the same time.
Meaning people from all over the world could be visiting your website while you’re doing something else.
Where as in my old business, I was the one that had to personally pound the pavement so to speak to drum up appointments to go see people.
And did I mention I had to do it personally?
This is what we can manual labor. Nothing wrong with it, IF you want to limit your reach to what you can do personally, but no one has become a rich by doing it all themselves. What online marketing lets you do is have your website(s) be the salesperson and do all the talking. I think it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I guess you have to go through years personal selling to have a real appreciation for this business.
As a result of learning some skills and implementing what I’ve learned, I’ve been able to work from the comfort of my home, making a nice six figure income, and having a blast.
I went from making prospecting calls and going on appointments every night, to staying at home ALL THE TIME.
This has allowed my wife to stay at home and both of us to spend lots of time with our now 3 kids.
This our whole clan taking a month long vacation in North Miami. Living in a condo on the beach overlooking the ocean.
And it’s not the only trip we take during the year.
Now I don’t say all this to impress you, but to impress upon you that this whole “Internet Lifestyle” thing is more than doable.
IF you put in the work.
This does take work and lots of it. Anyone that tells you anything different is full of BS, and you need to RUN from them like they’ve got the plague.
BUT, there’s a HUGE difference between working hard and working smart.
I believe success comes to those who want it, desire it, and are mentally prepared for it.
It takes a certain attitude, expectation, and thought process to make serious money. How you think and how you respond to challenges in life will determine how successful you’ll be.
I made a decision back in 1995, when I was 19 years old, that I will NEVER work for anyone, and that I will build a business that can provide for me and my family and allow me to live like I want to, and not be at the mercy of the economy, my company, or anyone else.
And although I had to make some changes in the course along the way, I didn’t stop seeking and searching, until I found the “magic formula”.
Actually, the truth is there’s no “magic formula”, although everyone wants to believe there’s one.
When it comes to making money online, there are a few basic principles you need to know.
1. You need a good product (whether your own or someone else’s)
2. You need targeted traffic, which is visitors that are interested in what you’re promoting
3. You need a good web page that can convert that traffic into leads and sales, which means $$$ to you.
4. You need a KILLER follow-up system (my specialty), so that you can EXPLODE your profits.

I wish you lots of success,
