This past month has seen quite the bloodbath in the cryptocurrency markets.
All the major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple and Ethereum really took it on the chin as investors sold off in droves.
So what can learn from this going forward…?Continue reading
It has happened to all of us.
You’re out and about…enjoying your night with friends.
You meet someone. They’re great looking. Witty and funny. (Seemingly) self-assured.
But then it starts to come out.Continue reading

Today I’m answering some of the recent questions I’ve received regarding Facebook’s Recent Algorithm Change, the value of blogging and more juicy marketing tidbits.
So let’s get the party started…
There seems to be somewhat of a growing consensus that blogging is a waste of time. It’s no. The mere fact that billions of web pages are searched every day is evidence of this. I also go deeper in to this as well as running ads on blogs and overall monetization. I also talk about automated news sites.
Has Facebook rolled out an algorithm change for personal profiles? Here’s my take… Also, I talk about mastering just ONE traffic source.
Someone asked me if they should buy an email list that was offered for sale to them (2 million names for $375). Here’s my answer.
Are in Cryptocurrency? That’s the question I get 10 times a day. Watch my video to find out.
There’s a very popular, well-known analogy about the odds of success: It’s about baseball players. A baseball player that averages a .300 batting average is considered very good, if not great. That means…for every 10 times he steps up to the plate he gets a hit ‘only’ 3 times out of that 10.
Now let’s take Colonel Sanders, who created Kentucky Fried Chicken. He was a driven guy but had years of failed jobs and personal relationships. But at the age of 73, he hit it when he sold (now named) KFC for millions.
The California-based hard rock band Van Halen slugged it out in the LA club scene for years playing 6 days a week sometimes doing 6 sets a night in the mid to late 70’s. Every record label snubbed them over and over until they garnered such a huge following on their own (they started pulling in thousands to their shows) that Warner Brothers Records signed them to a recording contract. They went on the become one of the biggest selling artists in history.
But this is not about sticking out until you hit it…Continue reading
So we’re five days in to the new year. How’s the gym membership going….??
Today’s Dot Com Minute will get you caught up on some juicy tidbits of news: From Apple and their ‘battery’ concern for us, Facebook’s false flags (or something) more video data, 280 character Tweets…and weed.

Take a minute a think about some of the great inventions/discoveries of modern man:

These are just a few but significant ones.
Then there is the Internet…and Social Media…Continue reading
I want to take a moment and wish everyone a Happy New Year. I also want to make clear that I’m NOT anti-new year. ‘Resetting yourself’ on the new year can be helpful if you’re prepared to follow through. But some have commented to me that my 2 posts (here and here) are putting down resolutions. I am not. What I AM trying to convey is that you don’t have to be a slave to what the calendar and the media pushes on us.
If New Year’s Resolutions help you move forward…then do it.Continue reading
