When we were children (in age at least…) most of us were reassured with this very well-known statement:
“There’s no such thing as a stupid question.”
It was our elders’ way of letting us know that communication was encouraged even if we were embarrassed to ask a question.
Even if we felt it was ‘stupid’.
But for some reason, the online world is a breeding ground for stupidity. Maybe it’s because those who partake in retardassery (yes I said it so keep your PC responses in your trap) can hide behind their Chef-Boyardee covered keyboard.
So I wanted to point out some examples of plain stupid-ass questions (and my responses) you should never not only ask me, but anyone else if you want to be taken with even a modicum of seriousness about your business.
So without further A Doo Doo…Continue reading
It’s amazing how many ideas I get for content from my readers…
To those of you who email me here or on social media who send me warm compliments…thank you.
Then there’s the other side…
The internet is an interesting beast.
Everyone online seems consumed with ‘getting theirs’ ….and getting it now.
Especially the younger generation (yep, I’m getting older!). But this is hardly anything new.
But here’s a problem that I notice:Continue reading
“I need to make three thousand dollars this month…help me build a page to do that.”
This guy obviously needed to make some coin…and needed my help. What’s interesting was this was all he sent me in his email…no ‘Hello’, no ‘how are you’? Just “hey I need money help me.”
I answered him (sometimes I like to be entertained, but also I admit I wonder what makes people like this tick):Continue reading
I sat there for a second, then asked myself almost aloud…
“Did he really just say that?”
Then I answered: “Uh…what do you mean?”Continue reading
In the home-based business arena, MLM (otherwise known as Multi-Level Marketing or ‘Network Marketing’) is easily the most controversial. After Amway started in the late 50’s we’ve seen an explosion of this industry that continues to this day.
With this growth there has been so much misinformation and outright lies thrown around. What (and who) should you believe? Is it a viable business model? Is it a scam?
Let me tell you what MLM is…what it isn’t, and why I don’t (for the most part) see it as a viable business model…Continue reading
I always laugh when I hear the statement ‘…things happen for a reason.’
Yep…they sure do..as in literally. That’s where people get fouled up.
In recent years we have seen a many a music legend stun us with their passing before they should have:Continue reading
Entrepreneurship is tough.
Entrepreneurship will test your patience….every day…and make you want to quit.
In online marketing, we are constantly beaten about trying to attain success…and maintain that success.
And it’s a constantly moving target.
It’s actually a bit like NFL football…of which I’m a big fan.Continue reading
This isn’t going to be a post on why you should or shouldn’t invest in Cryptocurrency, but I will tell you why Cryptocurrency will fail.

I see something troubling these days…more and more people seem less willing to accept responsibility for their own fiscal health.
Take minimum wage: In principle I am basically against it. It’s not because I’m not in favor of worker’s rights. It’s because of economics.
Statistically it’s proven time and time again that when there is a minimum wage hike, employment goes down. Some people say we should actually legislate hiring so people can get jobs regardless of MW hikes.Continue reading
