Did you ever hear the slogan “In business for yourself, but not by yourself.”
McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc famously promoted this slogan (although I’m not sure if he coined the term or not) as a way to entice prospective franchise owners and suppliers to work WITH the parent company rather than for them.
Multi Level Marketing (MLM) companies (otherwise known as ‘Network Marketing’) promote the same basic philosophy.
Today I talk about why Network Marketing companies do their distributors a huge disservice by teaching them to bug their warm market.Continue reading
Now THAT’S a real positive, ‘let’s crush it!’ headline!
It’s not what you think.
I see so many beginner internet marketers that fail in their business because they have not yet become comfortable with losing.
But it’s not the type of ‘losing’ that you might think…Continue reading
Apparently some did not understand my ‘angle’ on my post/video from yesterday (and a few freaked out….shocker).
So here you go kids: I’m doing ANOTHER video clarifying what I said. Plus this is just a great excuse to blather on politics some more and rile people up!Continue reading
“You are not my friend anymore.”
That was the message I received in my Facebook Inbox from someone I had known for 20 years. They then unfriended and blocked me.
You could probably guess by now this had ‘alot’ to do with our U.S. Presidential election.
So this prompted my video today.Continue reading
Do you sometimes feel like everyone is a flake?
I used to feel that way…but not anymore. Why? Because I embraced (and put in to practice) a rule that has changed everything.Continue reading
As some of you know, I’m a retired drummer from my previous life.
And every year I used to attend the National Association of Music Merchants Convention in Anaheim, California or ‘NAMM’.
NAMM is the world’s largest music products trade convention, and if you love music related stuff it’s a must go if you can get a pass.
This year stopped by briefly to see one of my closest friends, John Gaudesi at Schecter Guitar Research. John is one of the preeminent electric guitar builders in the industry and I mainly just wanted to see him.Continue reading
…and what you must do instead.
What’s up internet veterans? It’s finally sunny here today in Southern California but we got more rain coming. But hey, we need it!
In today’s video (from a Facebook Live this morning) I want to explain to those just getting started with a website or blog how running ads on your site pages will not make you much money…and what to do instead.Continue reading
Greetings from rainy Southern California!
We’re still in the throes of El Nino in what used to be sunny So Cal but the rain is not letting up. A good thing though as we really need it.
So in my Facebook Live video this morning (below)… let me cover what’s happening in our world (and how it affects you), follow me as I follow some burnt out musicians, and shoot you (hopefully) a few nuggets of wisdom.
Covered in today’s video (below):Continue reading
Thank Judas I’ve been able to avoid big globs of snot dripping from my nose.
I’ve avoided the winter cold the past few years (knock on Ferrari bumper) by taking the right vitamins (not the store bought junk) and eating right (with some occasional detours).
And I think that has spilled (pun intended!) over in to my Social Media business and avoided the dreaded ‘influenza’.Continue reading
The nightmares of my senior year…
In my ‘dream’…I’m trying to find my high school locker. I eventually find it. Then, I cannot remember the combination. Then the school bell rings. I’m late for class…but then cannot find my classroom.
This went on for years. And I remember waking up sweating and thinking to myself, “I have NO IDEA what I’m doing here in school.”
Because I really didn’t.Continue reading
