Oldie But Goody

thumb-penguin-with-books

I came across a facebook post today that is of a type that always gets my goat. (Someday I need to look up the derivation of that saying. The story is bound to be interesting.) It’s another one of those “this guy doesn’t make a living doing what he’s teaching” rants. I have an instant …

Paranoia

thumbRIPhopes

So lately I’ve been working on a program of building affiliate sites. It’s been a bit of a slog, since getting any traction has proved to be quite slow. On top of that, the Mozcast is stormy and rumor has it the changes happening are targeted right at me. Google has gotten the best of …

Topical – Keapernick

Love Kaepernick? Hate Kaepernick? Don’t know who the heck Kaepernick is? You’d love to stay and talk but you’ll be late to the flag burning?   It doesn’t matter.   Except that it matters a bunch. To somebody. If your facebook feed hasn’t been filled with that particular scandal for the last week or so, …

Wal-mart Hits The News

thumb-robot sign

Wal-mart has hit the news again. The headlines read that they are laying off 7,000 people. Now this is not new news, and supposedly these folks are being offered other jobs at Wal-mart. But it’s still important. Here’s why I think this matters to you. The time is coming, and soon, when the promise of …

Rational Beings Need Not Apply

I hate people thumb

People are not rational beings. We like to think that we are, but we are not. We are ruled by our emotions, held hostage by our preconceived notions,prone to the whims of magical thinking, filled with hopes and dreams. I am guilty of all these things. I recognize that about myself. I buy things on …

How do you feel about sales pitches that include success stories? You know the ones – anecdotes or testimonials about people who was able to use that particular method to achieve financial freedom in just weeks (or days or hours starting from now). I admit to being a bit jaded myself. I always wonder how …

Be Billy

Here’s a short personal observation. While I was looking for a synonym for “someone you hate”, I checked out an article called “11 overused things dumb people say”. (Link at bottom if you’re curious) I had a moment of self-doubt because most of them are in my lexicon. Then a couple of things occurred to …

How Loved Do You Need To Be?

thumg-people

How important is it that everybody like you if you are going to make a living on line? Not so much. Let’s do a little math. (Not to worry. I’ll do. You just watch.) Not counting friends and family, how many people do you know? Make the group as broad as you like, it won’t …

Here’s the deal

monkey

So. Here’s the deal. By popular reckoning, 95-98% of people are never going to do anything with the information or services you provide to them. (Oddly enough, that’s probably the same 95% that will never make a dime online. Another time, another story.) Once you get your head wrapped around that you should realize two …

All This Techy Stuff

I don’t know how you feel about techy internet stuff, but I like it a lot. Once I get it down, that is. The problem is that I have no patience with trying to bull my way through the learning process. One of the reasons that young kids seem to learn new things so well …
