Don’t Put All Your Eggs In One Basket

Multiple Streams

The Big Deal About Multiple Streams

If you quit or lose your job then for most people that’s it until they get another job. As you might know that alone is enough reason to have multiple streams of income. Even if you have your own business you never know how it’s going to go, maybe there will be low spots or the product or service you offer stops selling. If you have at least 2 income streams that are working then you have some insurance especially if the income from either is enough to keep you going. The thing is not to have all your eggs in one basket! 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

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

White As A Sheet? Now You Wish You Had Paid More Attention (It’s All Gone)

A bit of an old chestnut this one but I know that some of us are still not taking this seriously and sooner or later there will be tears …

Let Me Tell You A Story

A few years back a small recruitment agency who was a customer of mine for their telecoms and who I liked were so far as I can tell doing OK and were building a good business. Time passes and one day I get a phone call that went something like this  (I don’t remember the exact time or the exact words but this is close enough):

Customer: “Hi Stuart, I wonder if you can help us out, can you get our phone records for the last 3 months” 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

Make the application and get in now!

Digital Marketing!

If you have been following my blogs then you will know by now that I always try to be straight with people and this post is no different.

The important bit – a heads up

Much of the Six Figure Mentors is about quality and that side of things is going to get even better. In fact if you have any interest in Digital Marketing and believe that the Six Figure Mentors might be right for you then you should get into it now before things do change.  I can’t say anything about what is happening until it’s all formally announced but there’s nothing else out there quite like it and it is definitely an advantage to at least make an application to join the SFM now and, here’s the link. If you have already seen enough and have more or less decided that the Six Figure Mentors is right for you then you can join up here. Don’t leave it too long though, by the time we get to November 2012 it may be too late. READ MORE

Banners Broker – is it or isn’t it, should I care?

Loads of people are in Banners Broker and they are right when they say you are bound to make money out of it … as long as you maintain it (which is easy) … and as long as Banners Broker doesn’t shut down or anything.

A lot of people’s first question is probably “is Banners Broker a scam?” and will then Google it to find out. They will probably come up with lots of sites telling you it’s not a scam with a few that say it is. So is it?  Well, I’ve pondered over this and I can’t really say for sure but I’ll tell you some of what I do know and you can decide. Before I do though, another question is “does it matter?” and for my answer to this please see my post Dodgy Schemes on the internet. READ MORE

Are Google the new dictators?

Most people know that Google’s motto is “Don’t be evil”.

But before I go any further please watch this video snippet for 2 minutes and 46 seconds. It’s A segment from the Australian show ‘Hungry Beast’ Aired on Australia’s ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) network.

Personally I like a lot of the things Google do, I use a lot of their products and I don’t want to turn this into a “let’s bash Google” article (but I probably will, a bit), it’s intended more as a thought provoker and for interest. READ MORE

Simple Solo Ads – Part 1


Some people say solo ads are an easy and quick way to build a list.  Some people say solo ads are the lazy way to build a list (in which case I say “good”).  Anyway, I quite like solo ads, they are simple and quick.  Most solo list owners are responsive and direct so you don’t waste your time chasing people about or having long conversations, most of them just get on with it.

This blog I may repeat/update a few times as my own experience with solo list owners increases but I’ll tell you what I know so far. READ MORE

The Charles Schulz Philosophy

Peanuts

Actually this is a bit wet but hey … I like Peanuts, I work for em and we need a bit of trivia now and then 🙂

Take the time to Scroll thru slowly and read carefully to receive and enjoy full effect.

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip.

You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on them.

Just read the e-mail straight through, and you’ll get the point.

  1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
  2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
  3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
  4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
  5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
  6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday.

These are no second-rate achievers.

They are the best in their fields.

But the applause dies.. 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.

10 Things I like about the Six Figure Mentors

10 Things I like about the Six Figure Mentors

There are loads of “how to make it on the internet” websites and systems out there.  Some of them are just giving you information, some of them give you a system and some include tools to help you on your way, some of them are good, some of them are average and no doubt some of them are probably rubbish.

Why pick one over the other … why did I pick the Six Figure Mentors?

I had already looked at some few of these systems but to be honest I took interest in the Six Figure Mentors because it was recommended to me by someone I trusted and by someone who had already spent some time and money looking at various systems.  That isn’t to say I signed up straight away, I looked into it and watched quite a few videos, read some reports and checked out what other people on the internet had to say about it.  I checked for scams and complaints, apart from the odd malcontent the overwhelming majority of people including those in the know gave it an excellent review.  Overall I was impressed and had no doubts so I signed up, and it has so far been a really good decision.

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!?
