Quit NOW if You Can’t Do This Seriously…you need to quit now.

I know…I frickin’ know…

Usually my post titles are usually literary pieces of gold. But I’ve been in a rant mode lately because I’m seeing so much stupidity in our crazy world of work at homeness.

And I don’t want you skipping down this path of ill-repute…otherwise known as being broke the rest of your life.

But what I’m experiencing from some prominent online marketers is just flat-out lame and I don’t want you copying what they’re doing (or NOT doing).Continue reading

You know…the ‘break your heart’ kinda stuff.

Now I’m sure you’re thinking it’s never happened to an incredibly suave bloke as myself, but alas, I’ve had my share of the jilts…

But here’s the thing:

“I have a very particular set of email skills…”“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…

Did you go to work yesterday?

Jim Jones and the Social Media Koolaid

Shares

jim-jonesHey…do you remember Koolaid?

Do you remember Jim Jones?

In 1978 good ol’ Jimmy ran what was now famously known as the Peoples Temple…a crazy-ass cult ran by Jones who was the classic nutjob who got 918 of his cult members to swig Koolaid laced with Cyanide which completed the largest known mass suicide in recorded history.

Nice guy.

Apart from the over 300 children that perished in this tragedy (unimaginable to even think about), no guns were put to those grown-ups’ heads when they sealed their fate by drinking the concoction.

‘And what does this have to do with Social Media?’ you ask?

Plenty.Continue reading

Unbelievable.
