Hey there, amigo. I’m Wes Blackwell.
Isn’t it funny when “About” pages are written in the third-person, even when the author obviously wrote it theirself?
I sure think so. And after Wes Blackwell failed several attempts to sound sophisticated writing that way, he quickly cut the crap and decided to drop all the pretentiousness.
Others often feel the need to pack this page with a long list of accomplishments and make it read like a bloated résumé or the Tinder profile of some poor chump desperate to get a date.
But does that do anything to impress you or add value to the conversation? I think not.
So then, let’s just cut to the chase and answer the question that’s really on your mind…
“Is this person worth paying attention to?”
And for most of you reading this, the answer is NO.
1) I Can't Help You Get Rich Quick
I know… what a bummer.
If that’s what you’re looking for, you won’t find it here.
But there’s plenty of other people out there promising overnight success and easy riches, so maybe try them instead.
Look, I get it…
The lure of financial abundance, time freedom, and fame and fortune is what attracts most people to business.
But if you’re going to succeed, it’s not going to be easy.
It’s going to take a lot of hard work, frustration, and perseverance to get there.
So if you’re not prepared to put in ten times more effort than you’re probably expecting, then I’m not your guy.
2) I Can't Show You How to Get Paid for Doing Nothing
Damn… another buzzkill. I’m quite the party-pooper, aren’t I?
But like it or not, the only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.
When most people look for “the easy way” to do something, what it really means is that they don’t want to work. They want to get paid for doing nothing and make money while they sleep.
And while passive income is possible, it takes hard work to set it up AND maintain. So you can’t just expect to get it without rolling up your sleeves and pouring some blood, sweat and tears.
You get what you work for, not what you wish for. There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.
So if you want to find success, you better get to working.
And if you don’t enjoy working, you best get to steppin’…
3) I Care More About Helping People Than Making Money
Shocking, I know.
In a world full of fake gurus and second-rate scam artists, it’s a rarity to find someone who actually gives a shit about the people who buy from them. Nowadays it seems everyone is more concerned about looking good than helping their customers succeed.
And if you ask me, that’s pretty damn lame.
Imagine a sea of troubled souls out there, wandering around hopelessly lost, praying for an answer to their problems…
They need help. And you can help them… by selling them a solution.
But your clients and customers aren’t your paycheck. They’re your partners.
By selling to them, you become a trusted partner in helping them solve a problem and reach their goals. You’re not just some salesman who sold them something.
You become a partner in their success… or their failure.
And when you focus on your success instead of theirs, they’re certain to fail.
So if you’re the kind of person who cares more about what’s in it for you than what you can do for them, then we won’t get along.
You’re still here? Good.
Here's What You Can Expect From Me:
Actionable tricks, tactics and techniques that you can use immediately to boost your business and build your brand. For free.
Every day I reach into my big bag of goodies and pull out a nugget of knowledge that you can use to succeed.
But why do I do this?
Well, I’m glad you ask.
First and foremost, to help you. Because I believe my life isn’t about me, it’s about all the people whose lives I touch.
And if I can make your life a little better, then I can rest in peace knowing I made a difference. Even if I die dead-broke, destitute and penniless.
But I sure hope that doesn’t happen, so you can also expect offers to work with me and buy my stuff. Lots of them.
However, they’ll always be preceded by some kick-ass strategies you can use for free.
The idea is you’ll think, “Man, this free stuff really helped me. I think I’ll try the paid stuff.”
But not until I’ve proven I can help you first.
Although, you still may be wondering…
How Do I Know Your Stuff Is Any Good?
Well, I guess the easiest way to find out is to have a look at some of my free content.
If you like it, you’ll probably like my training, coaching and programs.
If you don’t like it, you won’t.
But I should also say that I know this stuff works beyond the shadow of a doubt because I’ve seen firsthand how it can boost your business and increase your income in record time.
After using it to double my own profits, I later helped a company triple their sales to over $200 million in less than a year. And I’ve seen it proven time and time again to help my clients get results.
But it wasn’t always this way…
When I first started out in business, I seemed to be doomed to an endless ride aboard the struggle bus with a first-class ticket. No matter what I did, I just couldn’t find a way to get new customers consistently.
And when I tell you I tried everything, I mean I tried EVERYTHING:
- I tried going after the low-hanging fruit, but nobody trusted me. They all said they were already working with someone or hung up as soon as I introduced myself.
- I tried promoting my business by sending mail to potential customers, but the only time my phone rang was when someone called to yell at me to stop sending them crap.
- And I tried every kind of new technology and fancy gadget under the sun. Super duper email auto-responders with cool drip campaigns. Slick and expensive CRMs that claimed to do all my follow up for me. And snazzy apps that were supposed to help me get leads on auto-pilot.
And guess what? None of it worked. None of it. It all sucked.
My efforts to get business seemed like nothing more than a giant waste of time and an endless money pit that drained me of all my hard-earned income.
I wasted so much money on shiny objects, fancy crap and worn-out strategies that didn’t work, only to spend months chasing customers till they blocked my calls, begging them for business and lowering my prices until profits were non-existent.
But for the life of me, I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t successful…
I was nice. I was charming. I was well put-together and good at what I did, but none of that mattered. I thought it’d help if I lowered my prices, but that didn’t work either.
I was completely lost and utterly frustrated. I was hopeless. It seemed as though I’d never escape that hell.
But once I stumbled across the concept of personal branding, I learned everything there was to know about it and used it to transform my business and completely turn my life around. And I’ve helped others do the same.
Seeing my clients get results is the reason I get out of bed every morning. I love showing people exactly what works (and what DOESN’T work), so you can scale your business and rapidly create the income, freedom, and lifestyle that you want.
Fast forward to today, and I’m known as the guy who wrote the little black book on personal branding, and the one person who can do more than anyone else to help you build a powerful personal brand.
Here's What I Will Help You With:
My main focus is to help you build a powerful personal brand to persuade people to purchase your products. Plain and simple.
I’m the creator of something called Psychodynamic Value Matching, which is a fancy way of saying “the deliberate demonstration of the match between your values and your customer’s values.” It is one of the main tools I use to build personal brands.
Because in my honest opinion, personal branding is the best way to build your business in today’s economy, and the only way you’ll be able to build your business in the future.
You can find out more about that in my book, Personal Branding for Entrepreneurs. It will provide you with a basic game plan for immediately improving your presence in the marketplace and separate yourself from the competition.

Thanks for reading this page. I hope you at least found it entertaining. If you made it this far it must have been.
Now get back to work, you sexy beast.
