Why I Don’t Twitter and Facebook

I must get dozens of emails per week about following someone on Twitter or joining as a friend on Facebook.   I don’t have a Twitter account and I no longer have a Facebook account.  If you listen to some people, they would say I am stupid, crazy, and insane not to have a Twitter account where I could get thousands of people to follow me. I closed my Facebook account…

What’s Up For 2009??

I have been spending quite a bit of time thinking and planning for the new year… 2009.  There’s lots to consider, and much to be hopeful about.  One thing is for sure.  I never felt better about my decision to be doing what I am doing on the Internet than I do right now. After spending time with different family and friends over Christmas, hearing about layoffs at their jobs,…

McCain or Obama – Does It Really Matter?

I have mentioned before that in the grand scheme of things, Americans are putting WAY TOO MUCH emphasis on the outcome of this election.  Why? Because in the larger picture, no one president (even with a majority in the house or senate) can control your life… for the good or bad.  I am 100% behind McCain and Palin.  100%.  But, that doesn’t mean I am putting my hope in them. …

Success Diminishes Opportunities

I don’t know how many of you saw the Warren Buffett interviews this last weekend.  I didn’t watch all of them, but I was able to see enough to impress me with the wisdom this man has.  While I am not all about worshipping the wealthy, there are a few people that are worth your attention when they speak because, generally, their wisdom goes beyond just making a buck… it…

Robert Kiyosaki’s Financial IQ

To continue with the theme from the previous post, you HAVE to get yourself involved in personal development and training.  I picked up a copy of Robert Kiyosaki’s “Increase Your Financial IQ”  I’ve always like the whole Rich Dad series of books.  I’ve been waiting for the next release, and so far, about half way through the book, I’ve got to say, this is a must read.  Go out and…

If You Lost It All

We had some pretty nasty storms come through Dallas last night.  Some places got wiped out, leaving many to start all over. While there are many philosophical and spiritual directions to take this question, I just want to focus on career.  If you lost it all, what would you do in starting over.  However it got taken away from you.  If you had to start at zero or below, what…

You Are An Occasion… So Rise To It!

I watched Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium this last weekend.  It was a pretty decent movie (made better by watching it in Blu-Ray and surround sound).   It may not have the best story line, action sequences, or romance, but it is certainly worth a few bucks to rent the movie.  There was one line in the middle of the movie that was great.  Mr.  Magorium said to Mahoney, “You Are An…

A New Generation – “Work From Home”

Found a great article that I had to pass along.  I included a snippet from the article and then a link to go and read the rest.  Very good stuff for you to reference. “For decades in American households the most dreaded morning sound was that of an alarm clock. Sometime between 6 and 7am a beep or radio music signaled that it was time to get up and head…

Success Magazine is Back

I don’t know if you’ve been around long enough to remember Success magazine.  I used to love to pick it up at Barnes and Noble.  Then it was gone.  After several years, Success Magazine is now back.  I checked the publishing address, and it is in the same building that publishes all of the Success From Home, Your Business at Home, etc. magazines.  Except – Success magazine is 100% generic and…

Affiliate Marketing vs. Network Marketing???

Affiliate Marketing and Network Marketing… is there a difference?  For some people, the difference is HUGE; for some people they think it’s the same thing.  Let me give you my perspective on this.  This is not comprehensive of course, but it will give you a bird’s-eye view of things. Similarities: You earn a commision from selling someone else’s product You market to build your business and your commission check Differences: Recruiting:…

Learning SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

Now, this may appear to be a contradiction to what I posted yesterday about joining all these other companies, like Ann Sieg or whomever.  BUT, this is not a contradiction.  It is about learning new skills to help you improve and grow your business. One of the people I trust in the world of search engine marketing is a guy named Brad Callen.  I’ve used many of his products over…

It’s All Mental

I was listening to an interview yesterday between Frank Kern and Gauher Chaudhry.  These are two guys who have made fortunes, 7-figure fortunes, on the Internet.  One of the comments that was mentioned in passing was “It’s hard to imagine not being able to make money on the Internet.”  They have been doing it so long, that so many of the things they do are second-nature.  If it was all…
