But you MUST look deeper…past the cleavage…

“This whole ‘Internet thing’ sounds just a bit sleazy.”

Hoss (that’s what I’ll call him) left it at that…and apparently has visions of scantily-clad dames when he looks at a sales video for an IM product.

Look…I don’t always like some of the stuff I see out in the wild.

It comes off a tad too hypey, shall we say.

And here’s the thing:

I get it.Continue reading

Why Lottery Players Do Not Want to be Wealthy

The headline of this post “Why Lottery Players Do Not Want to be Wealthy” over a background image of a broke guyYep…Lottery players don’t really want the money.

Let me explain my young minions…

Yes, we all ‘want’ the money. But most people don’t know WHY they want it.

Oh sure, there are the typical answers: To quit their job. To buy a new car. To go on vacations.

Then there are the altruistic reasons: To take care of their families. To start a charity.

But for the vast majority of lottery players that play and say they want the above things, they sure don’t do anything about it. In fact most of those same people have a negative mindset: They complain about their jobs, their life, etc….

Consider some of these stories of ‘Lottery Success’:Continue reading

Seriously?

The headline of this post “Seriously?” over a background image of post author Kenneth HollandYes…there is a serious problem which I need to address…

“I don’t have the money to do this.”

I get this a lot.

Here’s some truth serum for you:

If you ‘can’t’ come up with a few hundred bucks a month to start your online business…

You need to check yourself.

Maybe get a job?

…or decide you’re worth more than a lame excuse like this one.

Call it tough love from the ol’ Kenster here…

Does Positive Thinking Really Work?

The headline of this post “Does Positive Thinking Really Work?” over a background image of post author Kenneth Holland

Does Positive Thinking Really Work?

We hear it and read about it all the time…

The power of positive thinking.

Most of it centers around affirmations we’re supposed to tell ourselves:

‘I am doing this.’

‘I am a good parent.’

‘I am successful.’

It’s the process of affirming or declaring something to be, if you will.

We’ve all also had those moments when we try to pump ourselves up for a task or challenge ahead:

‘I know I can do this.’

But does positive thinking really work??Continue reading

Are You Gone with the Internet Marketing Wind?

The headline of this post “Are You Gone with the Internet Marketing Wind?” over a background image of Rhett ButlerThe internet marketing world has become the virtual street corner of beggars and shamsmen.

Not 2 days goes by now where I get a message on one of my social channels from someone asking for ‘help’.

I use the word ‘help’ loosely because it’s often not so much about help as it is for a handout or a ‘deal I can’t refuse’.

“I don’t have any money for my business…I need you to give me some.”

“Do a business with me but I need you to pay for it.”

I could go (oh…I could go on) on but why bother?

It reminds me Scarlett begging Rhett to stay…

Did it Go According to Plan?

Well…here we are.

The grand calendar has been laid down before us once again, and we’re usually asked 2 questions (or some variation of them):

“How did your year go?”

“What’s your New Years Resolution?”

It’s the ‘end of the year’, and we all have various levels of reflection: “Did I accomplish IT?” “Was THIS YEAR successful?”

Well…was it?

Did it go according to plan?Continue reading

‘The Leads are Weak? The Leads are Weak? You’re Weak’

The headline of this post “The Leads are Weak? The Leads are Weak? You’re Weak” over a background image of Alec Baldwin“The leads are weak? The &#$%@#@ leads are weak? You’re weak.”

Anyone who has seen the movie Glengarry Glen Ross knows this line well.

The movie depicts the lives of four burnt-out real estate salesmen who become desperate when a corporate trainer, played by Alec Baldwin, comes in to their office to tell them they’re all about to be fired unless they start making sales.

The Baldwin scene is well-known and become iconic not only for its scathing message about performance in the sales world, but the graphic use of profanity.

The Leads Are Weak…Are They…Really?

I’ve made many excuses in my online (and offline) career why I wasn’t making sales. I’ve used them all. But the one I used most was…you guessed it:

“The leads are weak.”

No. I was weak.Continue reading
