The grammar police dah dah dah dah dah dah dah!!
In 3rd grade my older brother had this teacher named Miss Swanson who was, shall we say, a bit of a totalitarian.
I’m pretty sure it was ‘Miss’ because she needed people to know she hated men…but I digress…
It didn’t help that my bro was a bit of a muckraker…you know…a troublemaker.
So when he would cut up, Swanson was at the ready with the ruler…
Usually on the back of the hands or on the rump roast. Eh, you get the idea.
In this day and age teachers can hardly get away with raising their voice at a student much less be able to whack ‘em with a ruler, wooden spoon or garden rake. Bleh! Cream puff world we live in now…
And this reminds me ofContinue reading
There is a reason why hard selling rarely works in online marketing and no…it’s not because of car salesmen. In fact, I will illustrate why your social media pitches fail and what you should be doing instead…all the time.

There’s been a ton of hubbub lately on the European Union’s legislation, The General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR.
With user data being collected at massive levels by countless companies online AND offline, there has been growing concern (and rightly so) on what these companies are DOING with our data.
Smaller online marketers are freaking out a bit as we all are trying to figure out what exactly is ‘compliance’ so we don’t get in to hot water with the data that we collect.
While I think it’s VERY important that we (online marketers) adjust and comply with the new laws (that go in to effect on May 25th, 2018…tomorrow), I want to give you my reasons for why I think most people are overreacting and what to do going forward.Continue reading
A couple of years ago I stumbled onto a radio/tv sportscaster personality named Colin Cowherd. You may or may not have heard of him…he has a morning show where he gives his opinions on sports topics. It’s called ‘The Herd’ and people usually either really love him or really hate him, but he’s very polarizing and it’s quite popular.
The reason why I bring him up and what drew me in to his show was his ability to tell stories. Let me explain what I mean…Continue reading
…who (like yours truly) would rather rake in the moolah on his own terms than work ‘for the man’.
It’s not often that I sing the proverbial praises for another Internet Stud (especially with the same surname…as I thought that was reserved for me), but that is exactly what Dean Holland is.
Now, I have no idea if he lifts weights, but I’m pretty sure that he is pretty adept at lifting the ever popular 12-ounce curl. (Again, a talent I am also adept in)
Dean has been through the wringer in the online arena over the years but unlike most he never gave up.
It’s a familiar story: Failure after failure…piling up big debts trying to figure out what it would take to succeed in his online business.Continue reading
A few weeks back I was having lunch with internet marketing legend John Chow.
(He has these ‘Dot Com Lunches’ in California on the weekends…good stuff and I always learn a ton)
So me, John and a few others are talking about online business strategies while eating some good Pho… (ever had Pho??)
John then says…Continue reading
Got a quick little Old Town Scottsdale Happy Hour for you…Famous 48 is a new restaurant in Old Town so I had to sample a few bites. Plus…I rant up on Congress on the Facebook privacy scandal.
Popular autoresponder company Mailchimp have started shutting down accounts that are related to Cryptocurrencies and ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) in an apparent effort to protect their service from potential scams.
You may not be in Cryptocurrency, but this could still affect you. Watch my video to find out why.Continue reading
“Instagram Wont Let Me Follow Anyone”: I’ve been doing some testing on my Instagram account and found one reason why you may not be able to follow anyone…
People that don’t respect your time is usually the result of people not knowing what they want and them not valuing you as a person.
To be successful your job is to identify when this is happening and respond quickly. Let me give you some personal examples…Continue reading
