“You realize we’re sitting on 45,000 pounds of fuel, one nuclear warhead and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder? Makes you feel good doesn’t it?” – Quote from ‘Armageddon’
Did you know that airplane maker Boeing outsources over 67% of the actual construction of their aircraft?
Here’s a little tidbit that may be eye-opening for you (and it should):
Spirit AeroSystems Inc. this week delivered the 10,000th Wichita-built 737 aircraft fuselage to the Boeing Co.
The milestone number, which was confirmed by the company, stretches back decades to when the Spirit (NYSE: SPR) facility was still part of Boeing Commercial Airplanes and where production on the 737 dates back to the mid-1960s.
A company spokesperson says Spirit will hold an event to celebrate the achievement in the coming weeks.
Spirit, which has work on all Boeing commercial programs, builds about 70 percent of every 737 that the company delivers. Those deliveries now are comprised of the company’s Next-Generation 737 models and the growing 737 MAX family.

Zapaygo, self-described as a lifestyle payment app for your smartphone, has launched an affiliate program. Problem is, they make the typical affiliate mistake….
First, here’s a bit on what Zapaygo is:
Zapaygo provides a menu of goods or services and a pre-order and payment facility to consumers through a free smartphone application.
The technology has been developed to innovate an age-old customer problem and to help venues and visitors improve their customer experience. Zapaygo will become the leading mobile payment platform in the sports, leisure and hospitality sectors.
The app streamlines the ordering and payment process in bars, restaurant, stadiums and many other venues, helping users and all types of businesses by reducing wasted time in queues and enhancing the service experience for everyone.
Zapaygo’s big mistake is their affiliate pay structure:Continue reading
So you’ve been pitched on the best thing since sliced (humble) pie…
They made a compelling offer and you bit.
“This is unreal!” they exclaimed. “Get set up and you’ll be making 10K a month working 4 hours a week!”
Not so fast Jackson…
I’m sure most of you have heard (or even read) ‘The 4-Hour Work Week’ by Tim Ferris. Ferris outlines a plan for streamlining your work processes so you put in less hours and have more time to enjoy your life.
No, I’m not going to criticize Tim’s book. What I am going to criticize is most people’s interpretation OF IT.Continue reading
My email gave me a beating yesterday like a cheap pimp at a furry dice convention.
Every time I hit refresh on my phone…27 more emails:
“Just 24 hours! 75% Off!”
“Get While the Gettin’ is Good! Everything Must Go for the Next 12 Hours!”
“Insane Mystery Coupon! 80% Off Your Next HO-Tel Stay!”
“Get Back to Me Now…My Clothes Are Off and I Can’t Wai……..”
(oops. I started reading my spam folder…scratch that last example…)
I think you catch my driftwood here…
This is why I didn’t post or email you. (Aren’t you just thrilled?)Continue reading
Well…you asked for it…you got it!
I get pestered on this particular subject just about more than any other.
Makes sense…I get it.
You want to know ‘the answer’.
That ‘thing’ that will tie it all up in a pretty bow and rain dollas’ in your banking app (I think ‘bank accounts’ is a passe term now, right?).
You want it demystified for you:
> How to get traffic (NO COST and VERY cheap paid traffic)
> Done for you content
> How to convert your traffic
> Facebook marketing
You get where I’m going with this…Continue reading
Ever had a friend that couldn’t focus on one thing for more than 3 minutes?
We all have.
They jump in to something full force with intensity that’s off the charts and next thing you know they’ve abandoned it like Dean Martin at an apple juice convention…
…and they’re on to the next thing.
It’s very common, and a surefire way to get nothing done.
This article in Entrepreneur characterizes it as a disease of distraction. But in the affiliate world this goes a step further: It’s when the serial buyer keeps buying course after course thinking that their latest purchase will bring them the success they desire.
That’s a troublesome rabbithole…Continue reading

Because the crap above is NOT a business.
Oh yes…the world is indeed competitive, but at the same time, it’s never been easier to beat the masses when there’s dung like this.
How? Start by doing the OPPOSITE of THAT. These ‘marketers’ are not only broke, but are being misled by the hacks that teach them success is a dishonest headline and a promise of easy-peasy.Continue reading
“I’ll only need your corneas for 20 minutes and then I’ll get ’em right back to you.”
I’m seeing (and hearing) a ton of these ads now on TV and radio…
You know what I’m talking about. The whole Lasik eye craze.
“Call now! Just $250 per eye while supplies last!”
I know quite a few people who have had their peepers overhauled with this procedure so I’m not arguing that it works. I’m just rather surprised that this method of advertising works for a medical procedure that’s obviously considered sensitive…
But from the amount of ads it IS apparently working.
“Start Your Own Online Business”
This reminds me of all the ‘ads’ I see on Facebook…especially the spammy groups.
An example I just pulled up from .76 seconds of searching:
‘If you could use a extra $300-$500 a week. for spending $18 one time…Would it be worth it?’Continue reading
How on earth can anyone…even Ms. Winfrey, compete with the Granddaddy of all greenbacks?

Let’s look at the tale of the tape shall we…Continue reading
A few months back I read an interview of a singer named Bruce Dickinson, who fronts the famous heavy metal band Iron Maiden.
Dickinson is also known for his accomplishments in aviation (he’s a licensed commercial airline pilot), fencing, writing novels and other pursuits.
He was releasing a book he had authored, and was asked by fan how he gets so much done with all he has going on in his life.
His answer was very illuminating.Continue reading
