Have You Got 6 Minutes To Help Me Out?

Trust Me

Trusting Me, Trusting You?

Abba or Alan Partridge might have said that 😀

I’m talking about me as well as anyone else! After all, who am I, why should you trust me and why should I trust you? Over the internet it’s not as easy to establish trust as it is if you meet someone face to face and/or speak to them on the phone. It’s not the first time I have mentioned this in a blog. One way to help build trust is to make a video so people can at least see the whites of your eyes so to speak. Another good way is to have lots of identity on the internet so that people can see that you are not hiding ready to run away from some scammy deal. READ MORE

Stuart Ross’s Shirt

Stuart Ross Shirt

Stuart Ross, the founder of the Six Figure Mentors, is excellent at many things and there is little to criticise from my point of view. Coming from me that’s quite good because I am quite outspoken sometimes and I don’t always care too much who I am outspoken to (sometimes I get in trouble for it). I just think it’s better in the long run to tell the truth. There is one thing I don’t like about Stuart Ross and that’s that shirt. I can never forgive that shirt, it should be burned … at a fashion show. What, what, you say you like it, nooo, I don’t believe you. You need new glasses. READ MORE

Hosting Nightmares And Solutions

Hosting Nightmares

Hosting Nightmares – Arggggghhhhhhhhhh

I really don’t like hosting nightmares, it can take a lot of time up sorting them out either by fixing it yourself when you can or by contacting your hosting company’s support.

I have been having hosting problems for the last week or so but I’m still going to sing my hosting company’s praises because they have always been there to sort things out as best they can and as fast as they can. They also put up with me when I get a bit frustrated with it. I am fairly patient but I still get a bit fed up sometimes. And, as usual with them, I have a happy ending. If you read my post Migrating WordPress And Some Tips you will know I touched on how important it was to have good support there. READ MORE

Bad Google? Are They Overstepping The Mark?

Bad Google

Bad Google? What Happened, Perhaps Your’ Not Well?

Oh boo hoo, Google, you were one of our best friends but now it seems we cannot trust you after all!

What is it with companies that become so big? Do they have to become corrupted? The usual shyster accountants and lawyers seem to get control and then it’s all about the bottom line followed by a moral spiral downwards. Why is it that companies have to constantly grow? We all know how dangerous monopolies can be and there is a point at which a company cannot grow much more anyway so should that be the emphasis? READ MORE

The Secret List Of Blocked Web Sites

Blocked Web Sites

Secret Blocked Web Sites … Scary Stuff!

I can’t remember where I picked this article up from, probably twitter or something, maybe Facebook. Anyway, I have lifted the text below from this article on TorrentFreak – Pirate Bay Proxy Now Included in Secret ISP Blocklist.

If governments and/or big companies get control of the internet who will the good, the bad and the ugly be then?

It’s not to do with whether you agree or not with torrent sites and digital piracy it’s to do with the the fact that there is a secret list of blocked web sites at all. Right or wrong, up to now the internet has been a pretty much unrestricted space even if it’s a case of the good, the bad and the ugly. Once you start restricting things where do you draw the line? Who decides? It’s an eternal discussion but once governments and / or large companies get control of the internet things are never going to be the same again and what you can and can’t see will then be decided for you. If blocked web sites are in a secret list then you won’t even know about what you can’t see! READ MORE

No Engine And Without Flapping

Gliding In Sail Planes

I used to think I was scared of heights but it turns out that this is not true, I’m scared of edges. I’m scared to the point of vertigo and the compulsion to jump just to get it over with. I can jump out of a plane (with a parachute of course), I can para-glide off of hills and I can happily get in any plane or helicopter. Put me on a cliff top and I’m a wreck.

I could write a ton about this subject but I can’t really write a book here so I might do an article on this now and again. For today I hope this will give you a flavour of this incredible, unique and much undervalued sport. Sometimes a little scary, sometimes incredibly beautiful and always a privilege to be in an environment we are not really meant to be in. READ MORE

How did I get to be in a band – part 1 – yeah, OK, let’s do it!

In a band

My friend John said “if you get a drum kit we’ll form a band” so I did and we formed a band.

Before I get going though I should say that this is the 70’s and I was a weekend hippie so sex drugs and rock and roll applies … that’s the way it was. As I started to write this I started to remember more stuff so now it’s not a potted history anymore, I’ll have to write it in more than one part, not sure how many yet. Some memories are a bit vague and I’m not sure of the chronological order of things any more. I recently found my old band diaries so I can probably sort most of the order of things out as I get time to do it. Anyway, we’ll see … join me on a journey … READ MORE

Ok then, if I join the Six Figure Mentors, what will I get?

Why would you want to Join the Six Figure Mentors, I mean really, what makes it better or different?

There are some things that are unique to the Six Figure Mentors but if I’m straight with you, you could probably get all the information and training elsewhere and possibly for free! But … here you get it all in one place, in logical sequence, already tried and tested, with support, with the benefit of experience, in digestible chunks and more.

I have said before that one of the great things about The Six Figure Mentors is that the system does not stand still.  As things change the site gets updated.  Small improvements occur regularly and recently there has been a significant update. This keeps things up to date, fresh and interesting.  It is of course important that things do not change so much or so fast that you cannot keep up. READ MORE

Not every day the sun shines and I’ve been “captcha”d

Just a reflection of how thing can go, it’s that frustrating day that you get sometimes.  In the great scheme of things I guess it’s like an ant nibbling at an elephants foot so I don’t think it’s going make me cry or anything but all the same:-)

Anyway, today and part of yesterday was a bit frustrating because some of the blogs and forums I tried to register with just would not co-operate.  They either gave me errors trying to register which stopped me dead, would not send me the verification email, on one I couldn’t figure out the answer to their random question (it was easy in the end, I’m just a dummy:-() or I couldn’t put in the captcha letters and digits correctly.  I’m over it now I think but it doesn’t half slow you down.  Anyway I’ve managed to sort them all out now.  I wonder if that means tomorrow is going to go really well!?
