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

You have such an opportunity in front of you…
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
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
…they ride in to town not bringing death, famine, war and conquest…
…they bring Facebook spamming, product-oriented pitches, no email list building and a get-rich-quick mentality.
People who are desperate search for the brass ring of riches…any way they can get it to avoid the inevitable stampede:
– Play the lottery
– Marry the rich dude (or dame) hanging at the hotel bar
Not the best of odds.
For some they set out to start their own business…
“I’m buying a franchise!” they say.
Not so fast…Continue reading

I must start out by letting any gamers know who might stumble upon (sounds like a great name for a website!) this post that this has nothing to do with any ‘game mechanics’ slowdown or even Star Citizen directly. So know that up front my PC warriors.
Now, to my online affiliate minions…
Star Citizen is a computer combat game for gamers to play each other online in real time (called a ‘massively multiplayer online role-playing game’ or mmorpg).
Now, why would I write about this you might be asking?Continue reading
“I can’t follow or unfollow anyone now it’s so frustrating! I need help answer me now.”
This above…the latest ‘comment’ on one of my popular Youtube videos on the practice of rapid following and unfollowing on Instagram.
(…by the by, this practice essentially no longer works…so if you’re doing it, I’d advise cutting it out)
So my fellow here demanded I answer him. Hmm. Ok. But first, a couple of quick questions:Continue reading
