‘I Will Try’ Will Keep You Broke


Have you ever said to someone ‘I will try’?

Of course you have. I have. We ALL have.

You KNOW why you say that, don’t you?

It’s because you more than likely will not do what you say.

It doesn’t make you (or me) a bad person…sometimes we say ‘I Will Try’ because we’re afraid to hurt someone’s feelings by saying….’no’.

However, you need to be careful what you DO say for your own mental health and overall success in life.Continue reading

If It Were Easy Everyone Would Still Not Do It


If It Were EasyIt’s frankly funny to me when I hear the statement “Well…*adjust jeans over pot belly*… if it were easy everyone would do it!”

How to Establish Credibility in Your Business: 5 Musts

Facebook Page Reach Decline: The Blessing in Disguise


Facebook Page Reach Decline: The Blessing in DisguiseWe’ve all heard moans, groans…and the whining and the bitching: ‘The Facebook Page Reach Decline has killed my page’!

It’s true. The reach on your Facebook Page has slowly declined to the point where it’s almost zero. In fact, I’ve heard numbers that suggest that Facebook’s average organic reach in 2017 is about 1% for pages on the social behemoth.

That means of all the people who ‘Liked’ your page, only 1 percent actually see your posts.

‘This is an injustice!!’ I hear you bark. ‘You’re making me pay to reach MY people’!Continue reading

Why Following Your Passion is a Bad IdeaSo exactly why is following your passion a recipe for disaster?

First off, welcome to my relaunch of the Dot Com Minute, broadcast on Facebook Live.

I’m honored that you’re here…so thanks for stopping in.

[1:01] Before I get to today’s topic of ‘Following Your Passion’, let me give you MY vision on how these shows will go…as well as HOW and WHY I want YOU to be a part of the show.

While I definitely want you to comment and ask questions, I’m NOT going to answer them during the show…and here’s why…Continue reading

Is it Time to Dump Twitter?


Is it Time to Dump Twitter?Twitter has been around for over ten years.

And yet, it’s still misunderstood by many who have either tried using it, or those who haven’t and just end up giving it a sideways look.

In today’s DOT COM MINUTE, I don’t pull any punches: Should you use (or continue to use) Twitter or not?

How to Set up a WIFI Extender in Your Home


How to Set up a WIFI Extender in Your HomeSo I came down with the flu today.

(Need I say more…???)

To say my creative juices are a bit compromised is a big understatement.

So today I’ve got a small bit of tech training. I just moved in to my new place in Palm Desert, California (more on that soon if you follow me on Social Media) and the internet router in the house is far enough away from my office that I get a crappy internet signal.Continue reading
