Hi and welcome to my site. My name is Dereck Celis, thanks for stopping by to check out my bio and learn more about how I might be able to help you.
Let me start by telling you a bit about me, what drives me and why I turned to the Internet in the first place! So bare with me and keep reading… you might find that we are not so different!
A Quick Bio…

Primary Residence: Clapham, London, United Kingdom.
My Market: Anyone who is serious and genuine about changing their financial lives and wants to work from the comfort of their home online.
Favourite Business Books and Authors: ”The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne (excellent movie too!), "Rich Dad Poor Dad" Robert Kiyosaki", "The Richest Man in Babylon" by George Samuel Clason
Favourite Part of my Business: Knowing the sheer opportunity and knowledge that having a presence online gives me access to a MASSIVE MASSIVE audience!!
Least favourite Part of my Business: None so far.
A Bit More About Me:
This is me with my beautiful partner Georgina. Now, if I’m honest she doesn't fully understand the ins and outs of building and running a successful Internet Business, but hey, she doesn't need to, she gives me great support which is more than enough to me! That's why I took her on a lovely Marketers Carribean Cruise in January 2011, she deserves it. You see having some kind of support is mega important, whether as a friend, partner or mentor, plain and simple it just makes things easier. The BIG difference is, a mentor will support you, push you at times, but will get you where you want to be! And soon, if you choose to, you will be able to mentor others! This is the fastest route to your goals without a doubt. I have some great mentors and a fantastic community to network with right now.
How others would describe me: People who know me well would describe me as somebody who has a real thirst for life, and a big thinker, oh and definitely… Money motivated! I don’t believe money is everything but sure helps for the finer things in life. The bottom line is Money, whether we like it or not, gives you time freedom and choice! My partner probably knows me best and she would definitely say I’m a straight talking guy and that I like to make money, but also a generous person and really enjoy helping people out who genuinely appreciate it, that’s what makes me tick
I’m from a Sales and IT background and have been to university so most people think that's a winning combination for a good future and job. If you love your job, then that's great but one thing that came to light is this… "how ever many hours you work you are always limited to what somebody else wants to pay you!" I must admit it took the penny to drop a couple of times before I finally really realised what I had to do! Ever had that? You think, right I’m gonna do something to change my life, then you go for it and then your steam or patience runs out or generally life just gets in the way! Well, there comes a time when you just need to make that jump and say to yourself "no matter what, I’m going to do this and see it through… No matter what!"
Why I Turned to the Internet:
My family have always been a huge motivating factor in working towards an income rich future. Family values and helping others are really important to me, but my top reason right now has to be building a great financial future for when I have my own kids and family one day. Of course my other goal will be to teach them to do the same! Another major driving factor has been to help my friends and especially my parents! Why? Because, honestly… I personally don’t think their pensions will give them the life they want… And I am sure they're not the only ones faced with that dilemma! Isn’t there somebody in your life that you want to help right now?
Hobbies & Interests
There are lots of hobbies I enjoy, from keeping fit and Salsa dancing with my partner, to us going on vacations and getaways when we can, you've heard it before; "life is just too short!". Sometimes it’s just short breaks away to the coast, or buzzing cities, to more recently travelling around Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and across to South America before flying home! That’s us sorted for a little while! Wouldn’t that be nice to have the option to do that, whenever you want?
Travelling can be one of the many “perks” of having an International home-based business, and having both the financial freedom and the time freedom to just get up and go when you want is truly great. It’s actually one of my long term aims to have ‘a friend in every major city’ and with this type of business that may just be possible! Anyway, rather than keep going on………… So what would I say is the golden nugget I learned that allows so many to be so successful online??? Well very simply…………..
One of the most powerful concepts I learned from the top mentors I have worked with is that to create financial freedom in my life, I was going to require an absolute vital ingredient called leverage.
Truly understanding this concept is what separates the poor and the middle class from the wealthy. The poor will learn how to use enough leverage just to get by. The middle class will wait until they can look at their life and say “Gee, I think I’m comfortable” and then stop adding leverage to their lives. But the wealthy will keep adding more and more leverage throughout their lives to create more and more wealth. Wealthy people understand that creating wealth involves leveraging their time and money. And that’s why they have a lot of poor and middle class working for them.
But what is leverage, really? Well, my Thesaurus says it’s: influence, power, force, control, pull, weight. Simply put, leverage is doing more and more with less and less. Less of what? Less time, less effort, less energy, less worry, less investment.
More of what? More income, more results, more value, more free time. If you’re currently trading your TIME for MONEY, you can only exchange about 14-15 hours a day and only earn so much (and you’re literally selling your life). But if you can LEVERAGE time and have “systems” set up that run on their own, there’s virtually no limit to how much you can earn.
So… the true secret to living an abundant life is not to get a great job, but to learn how to leverage your life. This has obviously been made more and more possible by having the Internet at our fingertips… Now there are certain forms of leverage that most people have absolutely no clue about. These are only used by a very small majority of every society who use it to live a life of abundance. The funny thing is, the ones that don’t know about this kind of leverage are taught to believe that these things are “too risky”! Ironically, that’s exactly why they never become wealthy themselves.
How do you leverage Time?
Well, one of the most popular ways is to become a business owner – this is someone who leverages his time by having people work for him, and/or owns a network marketing business where they earn a percentage from other people’s efforts (their downline). The other way is to be an Investor – someone who uses money as leverage.
How do you leverage Money? You let other people’s money work for you. * Your bank makes money with your money * Your insurance company makes money with your money * Your mortgage company makes money with your money
Let's pause for a moment… can you spare some time to Watch this short Video? It's concept is all about 'Leverage'!!
"Isn’t it time YOU started making money with leverage?"
So, What is The Secret?
I think the movie “The Secret” holds many of the pieces to the puzzle many of us are after. After watching this film and implementing the techniques and suggestions, I started experiencing massive benefits from my actions and thoughts. More open thoughts to what, truly is so possible if you just open your eyes long enough to discover that the opportunity you’ve been looking for is right here, and now! You have to believe that, after all, you have read this far, so I’m guessing you hadn’t found it yet? Maybe that’s about to change?
The Secret is an amazing movie and I highly recommend it to EVERYONE! I will email you more information and the first 20 minutes of this movie once you subscribe to my email list. As far as specific business is concerned, I don’t think there is one magic secret that will give you all the answers. There are certainly basics and fundamentals that will help you build a successful business, but the proper mindset is really the hidden key that many are looking for.
But how about timing, is now really a good time for building a business?? Never better… let me show you why! Just think of the opportunity we have before us now. We have the world at our fingertips. Literally…the World Wide Web… more like the World Wide Cash Machine. Think of how many customers or clients we can offer our services too. Truly Amazing! All we need to know is… What is the PIN number? Once we know that we can withdraw as much as we want. Well…..what is the PIN number you might ask? Very simply… it is Online Marketing. If you can become a master at this, then you will never have to worry about your finances again. What I mean is Effective Online Marketing – not just throwing a bunch of money into the web and generating business like that. I mean using as little cash as possible to generate the biggest return. Yes, there are still costs associated with marketing of any sort. Whether the cost is time or money, there is always a cost.
What you want to be is conscious of the returns you’re receiving from your efforts. The trap that many fall into is that they run out of money before they figure out what works best. This is one of the biggest reasons that you should always go into a new venture with someone who is already doing what you want to do. They can provide the help and guidance that can make the difference between Success and Failure. I know that if it wasn’t for mentors in my life I would not be on the path I am today. Anyone can show you how to sign on the dotted line or buy this or buy that, but if you’re looking for a genuine mentor or coach who will support you in your new business, please get in touch. I’d be honoured to help you in this incredible journey. For those who partner with me in my business, I offer my knowledge and education in this extremely important arena, and show you how you can start to master the art of marketing!
You see it doesn’t really matter what business/product you have, business opportunities will come and go but the understanding of how to effectively market will last forever
What I have done is set up my business to be as passive and automatic as possible. Now my business isn’t 100% passive, but I have built it so that I only deal with individuals that have an interest in a product or opportunity that I’m involved in! I don’t chase people or hound my friends and family or anyone else for that matter. I don’t have to “cold call” lists of leads for hours upon hours. By setting up these systems those that come to me already know a little about me and understand that I am a real person and am serious about their success and business. The beauty of all of this is that now I only speak to those who want to speak to me. How refreshing! Well, well, here we are… thanks a lot for sparing some of your valuable time to learn more about me, I’d like to think you feel like you know me a little better now and I hope you take an interest in this business that I am very passionate about. I look forward to the future with you!
Please get in touch with me with any questions. I don’t bite….I promise.
To your success, dreams and goals!
