Put Nature’s Invisible Army to Work on Your Crops Building Bigger Roots for Better Yields

Giant marijuana buds in closed space

Very big fat marijuana budEven though you may be giving your plants all the quality nutrients they need, there’s a good chance they aren’t absorbing a lot of it.

This means less potency and smaller yields than you’re probably shooting for.

In fact, right now there’s a good chance you’re flushing time, money and resources down the drain and your harvest won’t be nearly what it could be.

But it’s not your fault, because hardly anyone knows this stuff.

The problem is the roots.

I’ve put together a white paper that shows you how to maximize your root’s ability to absorb the nutrients they need.

In this cutting-edge white paper you’ll discover the secret behind bigger and more absorbent roots.

You also learn about one of nature’s most misunderstood growth and bloom stimulators.

The Velocity Factor

Cheetah running into the wild

Indoor marijuana gardeningI wanna share something with you that has been a key factor in my own success, and can help you not only to be more productive in your growing adventures, but also in your life.

I call it the “Velocity Factor”

Imagine green sugary buds. Beautiful, big, fat sticky ones. As many of them as you want to grow.

That’s what I did 31 years ago.

And then I got busy.

Did I make a plan? Sure. But planning doesn’t attract success. Speed and execution attract success.

No amount of studying, planning, brainstorming, or mentally preparing even come close to the power of just getting to damn work.

A running cheetah in the wild. I’ve known people with all kinds of amazing plans to harvest tens, hundreds, thousands, or even tens of thousands of bright green beauties; or to start their dream business or launch a product line, and their plans are amazing… I mean they’re as prepared as one could be, but the problem is they don’t actually jump in and do it.

They let fear, self-doubt, perfectionism, waiting for inspiration or the “right time” to get started, keeping them stuck in a state of perpetual “gonna do something great” but they never go out and do it.

“I wish to have no connection to a ship which does not sail fast; for I intend to go into harm’s way.”

– John Paul Jones

The key is to dive in headfirst and let the path reveal itself to you.

Action not only alleviates anxiety, but it attracts the answers, tools and momentum you need to be successful.

No book, plan, thought, meeting, insight, partner, blog or forum post can give it to you.  It takes massive action in the direction of what you want.

Sure, study your ass off and make well calculated plans, but all the best information and planning in the world is completely useless without execution.

A moment of NASCAR crashAnd the faster you execute, the more success you’ll attract.

Yes, you’ll also make more mistakes, I spoke about this in-depth my last post actually—How to Become an Epic Grower—but mistakes are good. They’re a necessary component of success.

Be willing to make a mess, break some stuff, spill nutes, kill plants and maybe even get some blood on the floor.

That’s ok, The path is never perfect. It’s dynamic, changing and sometimes a downright pain in the ass.

But if you move fast and fail fast, you’ll also learn fast and attract success fast.

So don’t worry about trying to do everything perfect, especially if you’re just starting out.

In fact, perfectionism is your worst enemy if you want to succeed. It’s a form of fear and control. You have to be willing to embrace the chaos and face it head on.

“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.”
― Bruce Lee

An artistic image with two racing carsThe more successful you become as a grower, in business or at ANYTHING in life, the more chaos, hurdles, and setbacks you’re gonna face.

But it’s all one big test. Success is testing you to see if you have what it takes. To achieve what you want in life, you have to become a person who achieves the kinds of things you set out to do. You have to grow, evolve and prove you can handle yourself under the pressure.

If you currently grow 10 plants and want to grow 10,000, you have become a person who can handle growing 10,000 plants. And to become that person, there will be series of tests every step of the way.

As you pass the tests, you become stronger, wiser, more tenacious and more successful.

However, none of this happens when we sit on our ass. It happens when we get moving, Even if we don’t know where to start, the key is to start. And then once you get moving, opportunities, possibilities and rewards will open themselves up to you.

My entire life as a grower I lived by the principle of velocity.

And yeah, I’ve made mistakes, crashed, burned, blew shit up… the whole deal.

But velocity has allowed me to achieve things that there’s no way I ever could have done had I tried to come up with the perfect plan or waited for inspiration to come give me a swift kick in the butt.

I had to get busy.

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
― Stephen King, On Writing

A running athlete finish off the trackAs long as you can see the first step, take it. You’re never going to figure out all the steps you need to take to get to where you want to go. The first step will lead to the second step and so on.

When I first started the Advanced Nutrients Holiday Heroes Program—to feed hungry families in Bulgaria—from the time of conception until we fed our first 1000 families was just 21 days.

People said it would be impossible. I guess they didn’t understand the power of velocity.

And yeah, we ran into ALL SORTS of problems that we didn’t foresee. But we never would have been able to figure everything out just sitting around waiting for the perfect plan to come together. We got busy and learned as we went.

And before long we were able to feed not only 1,000 families at a time, but 16,000 people at a time.

Just like anything else worthwhile I’ve accomplished in my life, it’s because I started with a goal, got busy taking action in the direction of that goal, encountered all kinds of problems, learned, grew and sometimes had to adjust my course a bit, and finally either reached my destination or one better than I had originally set out to reach.

A biker wins the raceJust like Tyler Durdin said in Fight Club “I don’t want to die without any scars

Whatever it is you want to achieve in life—giant gardens with big fat sugar-coated buds, owning a business, getting into shape, going after your dream life or career, if you just start moving in the direction of it—not tip-toeing around, but taking large and bold strides—the path will reveal itself to you, and you’ll either achieve your goals, or something greater.

And I want great things for you.

Talk soon,


“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark would burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

Jack London

Advanced Nutrients BigMike Recommends Competitors Product

Hey – I realize this probably sounds crazy. But I want you to use a competitors product instead of one of my own products.

This is not some publicity stunt, or is Advanced Nutrients going to be distributing this product. It’s just straight up the right thing to do.

In the video I explain in great detail why I’m doing this. In fact when our research showed that one of our competitors had a better product and it was going to take us awhile to play “catch-up” so to speak. There was only one thing to do, and this is it.

No I haven’t lost my mind I really do want you to go out and purchase my competitors product. Because in life I’ve come to realize, that doing the right thing isn’t always the easiest thing.

Enjoy 🙂
