If you want to work from home in your pajamas then don’t read this

Shares

work from home in your pajamasThere’s two sayings on the internet (because…y’know…there’s none of that online)…

‘It’s Not What You Know. It’s Who You Know’

And…

‘All working from home did was get me smelly pajamas’

Ok. Second one not so much. But boy is it ever true.Continue reading

Should You Use Bearspray to Repel Tire-Kickers?

Should You Use Bearspray to Repel Tire-Kickers?Never been a big camper.

I have done it…but it’s been quite a long time. Actually, my idea of camping is stocking up on some cheese and cabernet at a Ritz Carlton, then making a fort with the pillows and monogrammed robes.

(I usually have a partner when I do this…)

Hey…don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it!

Now, apparently, it’s recommended you take Bearspray if you’re going to camp in the deep woods.Continue reading

So you can’t wait for 2016 to be over huh??‘2016 is over…at last!’

‘It’s nearly 2017! Can we finally retire the current year….’?

‘Is 2016 the worst year in history?’

These three headlines took me less than a minute to find on Google and post them here.

Let me not waste any time by giving you MY take on this (especially #3):Continue reading

When shit gets tough it’s not about coloring books and safe zones…So, we had a pretty big U.S. Presidential election recently by all accounts…

…and a guy with hair that looks like a hairpiece that’s not a hairpiece (so we’re told) is about to become the next Grand Poobah.

And you know what?? I don’t really care.

I’m not here today to talk politics. But I know that you know that I’m gonna rant about something…right??Continue reading

Happy Holidays from the KensterI woke up this morning and guess what I found under my tree?

A new course to rank all my Youtube videos at #1 for any search term within 37 minutes…guaranteed!

Ok…I couldn’t resist! 🙂

Today I want to wish everyone a blessed and safe holiday. Go hug your family and friends, and sip a ‘lil nog (if that suits your fancy).

Wishing you a great TOMORROW with your business too. No, I’m not waiting till 2017. It’ll be great but there’s still some days left this year.

Until then…

Ronald Reagan, Trickle Down Ken-o Nomics and the Facebook Scammer

Ronald Reagan, Trickle Down Ken-o Nomics and the Facebook ScammerSo Ronald Reagan and I were having lunch one day back in 1982…

Ronny leans in to me to make sure no else was hearing (we were in his house so I think he was already losing it) and says to me:

“Ken…weeelll, I have a humdinger of an idea for a website on the internet.”

I gave him a puzzled look, certain he HAD lost it, and replied, “Ron, what the hell is the ‘internet’?”Continue reading

When the student is ready he’ll get off his ass and go to work“I’ve enrolled in another quarter of school…I bet there’s gonna be a ton of young chicks I can hit on.”

My friend was 42, and had been going to college since…well…high school.

That’s a lot of ‘higher learning’. Or in his case, younger socializing.

And trust me, there was no ‘Buddha’ anywhere in his name…

Hey, I got no problem with banter with the opposite sex, but my friend was deluded in to thinking financial success equated to how much school he could attend. Or maybe he was just lazy and afraid…

Either way, what was his ‘education’ really doing for him? (well…yeah…dates with broads 20 years younger than him but that TAKES money from you and doesn’t generate it!)

Which leads me to my disdain for structured education in our society.Continue reading

What Abe and Tiger Can Teach You About Failure

Shares

What Abe and Tiger Can Teach You About FailureSomething I tend to hear a lot these days is ‘haters’ hating on wealthy or successful people…

“Oh, he’s a trust fund kid.”

“He got lucky to get all those millions.”

Usually comments of this nature come from people who suffer from ‘class envy’.  And what most never see is great struggle, sacrifice and resolve that they endure.Continue reading

Now…which one to you sounds the most ’empowering’?Continue reading
