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

iLivingApp.com – Is It, Isn’t It, Haven’t Got A Clue, OMG, I Just Don’t Know!

iLivingApp

Well I’m giving it a go!

I like to recommend things that I personally either believe in myself or have been up front about.

iLivingApp launched on the 1st February 2013 so the truth is nobody knows how well it will do yet but from the due diligence that I have done it mostly looks like it’s worth ago. Whatever happens, with such a low entry cost it won’t be a big deal if it doesn’t go the course. If you don’t join, especially at the beginning, it does do well and you miss out then it’s bit like not playing the lottery when you had the winning numbers. READ MORE

Gold Marketing Extreme, Brand Up

Marketing Extreme

I went to a 3 day training session over the weekend. It was a DEA (Digital Experts Academy) Gold training course. Altogether it was really good. I have to admit that I didn’t really enjoy the first day as I think it lacked content and was, well a bit boring and repetitive. Some people liked it but not me, I guess nothing is perfect.  The second and third days were fantastic though and I can genuinely rave about them.

The course was hosted by Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek. There were two main speakers, Red Rose (for real) and Daniel Wagner.  Red spoke for one and a half days and Daniel for a little less than half a day. 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

I don’t like techy stuff, it drives me nuts! Some tips

Techy stuff, it drives me nuts!

Actually I do

Actually I do like techy stuff but then I spent 20 years working in IT as a programmer, analyst etc. so I’m comfortable with it.  Even so, sometimes I get stuck with techy stuff too and have to ask for help.  Sometimes when I look at some instructions my eyes glaze over in the same way as they do when I look at a tax form (I find everyday accounts intensely boring but unfortunately necessary).  Mostly though I ok with it.

But most people don’t

Most people in my experience don’t like techy stuff and would rather put pins in their eyes than configure a router or grapple with some HTML on a web page.  “Computer; make your way to ground floor via the window as fast and as hard as possible!”  But don’t blame the computer it actually does an amazing job despite the frustrations and yes I know, there can be a lot of frustrations.  Sometimes you can spend a day or two just trying to make it work but most of the time they actually do work ok.

We stopped being wise

I was going to to do a blog here about not clinging to things that don’t work but instead I want to share this video from Barry Schwartz who I think has a fine mind and puts into perspective what we humans can be like.  It’s about 20 minutes long but I hope it will help you think for the better and perhaps apply it to your daily life … enjoy …

“Barry Schwartz makes a passionate call for “practical wisdom” as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy. He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world. READ MORE

Balancing your scepticism

Today I want to talk about balancing your scepticism.

This was bugging me most of yesterday because some people are so negative and cynical that they won’t acccept anything. They analyse things so much that they can end up talking themselves out of a good opportunity. There is a lot of junk out there so you have to have some caution but don’t go over the top.

Successful people are positive and open to look at things, you see this time and time again. They tend to able to more easily identify a good opportunity and reject this things that are probably no good. READ MORE
