‘2016 is over…at last!’
‘It’s nearly 2017! Can we finally retire the current year….’?
‘Is 2016 the worst year in history?’
These three headlines took me less than a minute to find on Google and post them here.
Let me not waste any time by giving you MY take on this (especially #3):Continue reading
“I know who you are…and I know what you want. If you are looking for the freebie push-button way to riches, I can tell you I don’t have that, because no one does. But what I do have are a very particular set of email skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that can make you a ton of money. If you don’t listen to me, that’ll be the end of it (and you making any money). But if you do, I will look for you, I will find you and I will help beat your competition’s ass.”
In yesterday’s post, I brought you up to speed on the ‘must’s’ of Social Media. That’s how you pull people in. Now you must use the dagger of online marketing to put money in your pocket…
…to be precise…they ceased operations on October 26th, 1861.
Not many people know why. Would you like to know??
Because they downloaded Facebook and Snapchat on their frickin’ smart phone, that’s why!!!Continue reading
‘Shiny happy people laughing’
‘Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands, take it, take it’
‘Whoa, here we go’
(from REM’s ‘Shiny Happy People’)
A top 10 hit by the boys from Georgia…ka ching!!
The problem with so many newbies in internet marketing is they think they’re Michael Stipe.
But they aren’t, and they fall for ‘Shiny Object Syndrome’ over and over.Continue reading
So, we had a pretty big U.S. Presidential election recently by all accounts…
…and a guy with hair that looks like a hairpiece that’s not a hairpiece (so we’re told) is about to become the next Grand Poobah.
And you know what?? I don’t really care.
I’m not here today to talk politics. But I know that you know that I’m gonna rant about something…right??Continue reading
“Christian, you are the state lottery, the cure for cancer, and the three wishes from Aladdin’s lamp all rolled into one”.
“The quick fix is the ONLY way to get results these days. If you’re doing ANYTHING ‘by hand’ online you must be lost, no??
“I mean, for crying out loud, you don’t actually write your own content, do you? I mean…that would be insane. Let me sell you a software that does it for you.”
ah…beware of these charlatans.
But let’s back up for a moment…Continue reading
I woke up this morning and guess what I found under my tree?
A new course to rank all my Youtube videos at #1 for any search term within 37 minutes…guaranteed!
Ok…I couldn’t resist! 🙂
Today I want to wish everyone a blessed and safe holiday. Go hug your family and friends, and sip a ‘lil nog (if that suits your fancy).
Wishing you a great TOMORROW with your business too. No, I’m not waiting till 2017. It’ll be great but there’s still some days left this year.
So Ronald Reagan and I were having lunch one day back in 1982…
Ronny leans in to me to make sure no else was hearing (we were in his house so I think he was already losing it) and says to me:
“Ken…weeelll, I have a humdinger of an idea for a website on the internet.”
I gave him a puzzled look, certain he HAD lost it, and replied, “Ron, what the hell is the ‘internet’?”Continue reading
“I’ve enrolled in another quarter of school…I bet there’s gonna be a ton of young chicks I can hit on.”
My friend was 42, and had been going to college since…well…high school.
That’s a lot of ‘higher learning’. Or in his case, younger socializing.
And trust me, there was no ‘Buddha’ anywhere in his name…
Hey, I got no problem with banter with the opposite sex, but my friend was deluded in to thinking financial success equated to how much school he could attend. Or maybe he was just lazy and afraid…
Either way, what was his ‘education’ really doing for him? (well…yeah…dates with broads 20 years younger than him but that TAKES money from you and doesn’t generate it!)
Which leads me to my disdain for structured education in our society.Continue reading
Something I tend to hear a lot these days is ‘haters’ hating on wealthy or successful people…
“Oh, he’s a trust fund kid.”
“He got lucky to get all those millions.”
Usually comments of this nature come from people who suffer from ‘class envy’. And what most never see is great struggle, sacrifice and resolve that they endure.Continue reading
