WALT BAYLISS | Millionaire Podcaster and Online Marketing Software Creator
I have been using Jeff's Video Training since the beginning of 2014 when I first found out about it online through a friend who was looking for an affordable way to learn how to make money with real estate investing. The training has helped me tremendously and continues to help guide me as I continue growing this business into something that can sustain itself long term while still giving myself room for personal growth and development outside of just selling homes on Zillow/Trulia! The training also gives you all the tools necessary for starting your own business so you don't have any
Today I’m joined by Walt Bayliss! Host of the Business and People podcast, online entrepreneur and software company owner.
From farmer to hospitality and sales - Walt thought that working in the corporate world was the only way forward.
But something changed.

Two intense blowaways already. The time spent taking action is equal to the same amount of time as doing nothing and the "see the future", if then metaphor Walt mentioned. Amazing stuff 💯🙏. #entrenation #questforexcellence
That by far was the most inspiring episode of "Millionaire Secrets" (the quotes don't mean anything bad, I just wanted to draw attention to that term). Let me tell you why...
Man in 2018, I finally beat the suicide trap. On my life, I attempted suicide 4 times.
I lost my mom at a young age, I had 6 figures when I was 20, lost it and the business in like 9 months, Lost ALL of my family ties, lost about 3 more businesses, DUDE this video is so inspiring to me.
I've been able to build a $25k residual income online even while having a mental illness, but man Walt was so right.
Back then I totally thought I was a menese, I wasn't worth anything, I'd never get the money back. Man, I had a guy steal my idea and make 6 figures, Dude I felt so crap about myself.
I am loving listening to this. I just created a brand new biz that I'm launching in November. I'm going a totally different route with it, but when Bayliss said the whole "Apple" thing, it made sense.
The IM market NEEDS me, I am valuable!
Thank you to you both. You always give great value Jeff, but I had NO IDEA Walt was gonna bring that much value. Wow! This is so inspirational.

A Must-read Book for Technology Executives!
Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2016
The Complete Software Project Manager is a must read for any executive involved in software projects. Don't stop there, though, the project team(s) should read this book too! Murray's extensive technology and project management experience is clear as she explains projects in an easy-to-understand manner, providing real-world examples to convey specific points. Even if you have experience working with software project teams, this book will help clarify the project roles and the individuals that fit those roles, outline the issues that invariably arise during most projects, and provide ways to avoid or work through those issues. Murray's writing style is refreshing--honest and straightforward, with the perfect amount of humor.

Very practical advise for Software project management

Anna is amazing. The entire book is written in very simple to understand language with easy to relate examples. I hope she includes more specific guidelines for medical device software project management and its nuances in future publications!
VERY VERY PROFESSIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE RESOURCE!!!!!!!
Reviewed in the United States on June 5, 2017
Are you a business leader, programmer, project manager, or program manager? If you are, then this book is for you. Author Anna P. Murray Nancy C. Muir, has written an outstanding book on software project management by giving you processes and advice that is appropriate for medium-to-large projects.
Author Murray, begins by defining software development as any activity that involves the creation or customization of software. The author also provides you with an understanding of Agile and Waterfall, which are two ways of approaching projects and are foundational to good software project management. Then, she continues by introducing you to another aspect of project approach, which deals with the high-level technology decisions that must be made. The author then covers how the business and its technology advisor need to have one clear voice and a clear direction; and, this needs to be communicated to the teams underneath. Next, she discusses how you must have a trusted technology partner on board to help advise you on business decisions. In addition, the author looks at final discovery, which simply means the last phase that is necessary to get to the detailed plan of action. She also gives you some practical advice that will help you through the process of budgeting, in order to give you a chance to reach an accurate budget. Next, the author recommends that you should always budget for your risk factors and be prepared for the contingency to be spent. In addition, she suggests ways to structure your meetings; as well as, agendas that are good to follow. Then, the author continues by discussing that if a project is going well, business requirements have already been collected, in the most highly visual way possible, so that the programmers have a clear roadmap of what they need to do. She then gets you acquainted with the project’s first third, which is usually occupied with preparation, which involves: roles, team building, and conflict resolution; discovery; risk identification; and, business requirements. Next, the author takes a step back and looks at problemswhat happens when the software doesn’t shape up and becomes a risk factor. Finally, she explains how the incorporation of business users into the prioritization of development work often produces a very efficient and collaborative environment where everyone knows what’s important to get done and why.
This excellent book has provided a framework for managing software projectsthe things the author has seen time and time again in website launches, database migrations, finance system replacements, custom n development, and packaged software deployments. In other words, this great book has pragmatic stuff that you need to know: organizing and staffing a project; the common conflicts that crop up; planning; risk management; and, of course, budgeting.
Non-jargon filled guide for non-technical executives leading software projects
Reviewed in the United States on June 5, 2018
This book is an outstanding resource for non-technical executives facing the daunting task of overseeing a software project. In an increasingly digital world, few executives can escape without impact from some software project that is critical to achieving their goals. However, to many executives, software is a black box that is just supposed to work, but most do not understand the complexity of how a well-executed digital customer experience came to be!
Anna Murray is a seasoned executive who has clearly lived through the many successes and failures that inform her perspectives. She has effectively translated her wisdom into a non-jargon filled and easily readable book that leads the less tech-savvy executive through every aspect of delivering a successful project, pointing out likely landmines, pitfalls and incorrect assumptions along the way. From the critical initial planning to budgeting, resourcing, planning and tracking progress, testing and, hopefully, delivering a successful project, Murray guides you through the process effectively. The simple project tools are particularly helpful, as is the glossary of terms.
As an experienced product executive, I alternately grimaced and chuckled as I saw a mirror of all the projects that went wrong, because of one or more of the pitfalls Murray has identified here. I definitely recommend this as an easy read for those embarking on a project or already drowning in jargon from their colleagues – or worse, wondering what went wrong!
The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But The Truth About Software Project Management
Reviewed in the United States on February 23, 2016
I'm about halfway through Murray's book on software project management for non-specialists. I've worked in the IT business both as developer and manager for 30+ years, and this is the book I wish someone had given me when I started out. Having made most of the mistakes Murray warns about, I can reliably report she has done all of us who work in the business a favour by itemizing project pitfalls, and providing sound advice on how to avoid or mitigate the dangers.
Chapter 3 on Project Approaches contains particularly cogent advice on the perils of premature purchase of off-the-shelf applications. Since there are by now OTS solutions to all common business functions, writing large applications from scratch is becoming increasingly rare. Murray treats various issues involved with OTS software deftly and in depth. She also describes how newer framework technologies are making custom development more affordable. So you get a balanced approach in choosing the solution that best fits a given situation.
Chapter 4 on Team Roles and Responsibilities competently describes the conventional divisions of work and responsibilities on a software project. I have a little quibble with her distinction between Program Manager ("The Captain") and Project Manager ("The First Mate"). Here in Canada it is the project manager who is the "general in charge of forming and executing the battle plan." (And yes, they do often do the business case.) On large Canadian projects there is typically a role informally known as the project secretary or assistant project manager who "is in charge of interacting daily with the technical team, making and tracking the detailed plans, and using project management tools to report on progress." As I say, it's a small cavil, probably a cultural one. Toward the end of the chapter Murray calls executives to task. She insists they step up and inform themselves regarding decisions that they and they alone must make regarding technology and how a project is to be run. Amen to that.
Murray's is a book I believe that all executive sponsors of business automation projects should read. I hope it becomes required reading on EMBA programs; no divisional executive with significant siging authority should be without training on how software projects ought to be run. Executive involvement up front in understanding requirements in depth and asking pointed questions are essential elements for a successful project.
What I particularly like is Murray's writing style. It's terse, pithy and to-the-point; the woman wastes no words. This is an author who has worked in the trenches, and lived to tell about it! Great job Anna!

This is a must read for any business leader about to take on a project on the technical side of the house.
Anna identifies many of the potential pitfalls faced by non-technical managers and carefully guides them through the process.
I've also had the pleasure of working directly with the author on a major legacy conversion project. Reading her book prior to
The project set the expectations quite high. She continues to deliver on all levels, and I've used her book as a field manual for success.
This book is worth every penny I spent and more. It is a very practical and realist guide to PM in software development.
Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2016
This book would be extremely helpful for anyone involved in software development, particularly to someone in leadership role. The book addresses the use of Agile in the real world, which is really useful because many books and courses I've read or partaken in seem to advocate pure Agile instead of Agile-enough. As for PMP who has no experience or training in managing software development, this book probably is a great reference to have. I have purchased this book for my library collection, after I read a copy borrowed from public library.
Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2016
What's great about this book is that it is readable (even--gasp!--enjoyable) by people like myself who are not software experts. I felt like I learned things about management in general that I could put to use in my own work, even though it's outside of the software arena. Don't be put off by the "Software" in the name... I would recommend this book to anybody who develops ANY kind of large-scale project, digital or otherwise.

Exceptional. Concise. Actionable.
Reviewed in the United States on March 15, 2016
This is a more than a software project book. Ms. Murray has clearly "been there - done that" a few (hundred) times! Every chapter is filled with meaningful and immediately actionable advice that you could easily apply to any project, not just software. This is a valuable business book written in language that all can understand, incorporating wit, humor, and wisdom that can only come from a season professional. Highly recommended!
