I do want top rankings 
I do NOT want top rankings.

Which one of those statements is true for you?

I am willing to invest time or money to get top rankings.
I am NOT willing to invest time or money to get top rankings.

Which one of those statements is true for you?

Not many things in life are black and white...but getting top rankings for your website is. 

You either have them or you don't AND you are either willing to do something to get them, or you're not.

I think a lot of people fool themselves into thinking they will do what it takes and then when the times comes to invest the time or put up money, they don't follow through.

I don't mean to be too blunt, and I definitely don't mean to be offensive but I do want to be honest and hopefully get you thinking.

It's worth repeating.

You either have top rankings or you don't.
You are either willing to do something to get top rankings, or you aren't.

What is true for you and what does that truth mean to you, your business and your goals?

It has been said that inaction is action, in and of itself.  So, the question is - you are already taking action in some form, so are you taking the right action?

SEO may not be for you.  You may not want a lot of new traffic and leads and sales.  If that's the case, that's OK.

But if you want or need traffic, leads and sales - then you need top rankings.

Not sure where that come from, but I guess that was my little rant for the day!  Stay tuned for more SEO tips.

Google Buzz goes after Facebook, Twitter

Google is Jumping into the Social Media Waters

Is Google Jumping into the Social Media Waters?

Facebook, Twitter and Now Google!

Just reported on CNN Google is Jumping into the Social Media Waters!

Google is expected to plunge into the world of Facebook and Twitter, using its popular Gmail service to allow users to post status updates and items.

The search-engine giant, which recently tweaked its search function to allow easier access to social media results, has planned an event for Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET at its California headquarters.

That comes a day after the Wall Street Journal quoted "people familiar with the matter" saying the feature would allow Facebook-style status updates, as well as pinging when users post something to affiliated sites like YouTube or Picasa.

If it appears as described, it would be a sort of anti-Twitter, making a user's updates private by default, as opposed to open, as they are on the micro-blogging site.

The hands-down leader in the search engine world, Google has been branching out on projects that include its Nexus One smartphone -- the company's first foray into hardware marketing.

Late last month, Google announced that people could tweak their accounts to make results related to friends, co-workers and other members of their social networks appear above all other results.

The Social Search feature was introduced to a limited number of Google users last year and was made available to everyone in beta status on January 28.

The change came with a hint of more things to come.

"This is just a first step in our ongoing effort to ensure that Google Web search is always as social as the Web itself," the company said in an instructional video posted to its official blog.

Search Engine Optimization Today

Search Engine Optimization Today

Today Google Real-Time Search Changes Everything. Not being where your customer is looking could be costing you their business! Search engines are tightening up the loopholes to manipulate positioning.

So-called “doorway” pages, tricks with meta tag/keyword files, etc. no longer are effective. Keyword positioning, along with indexing, is the way to be seen on today’s Internet.

• The vast majority of clicks occur within the top 5 positions on a search page.

• As a rule, the more competitive the business category, the harder it is to attain decent placement. Conversely, the more competitive the business category, the more important placement is to success of the business.

Entrepreneurs and small businesses constantly find themselves looking around asking themselves why they can’t quite seem to find a good fit for what they need from service providers.

People do business with who they like, who they trust and who truly care about their business. In fact, a recent study by US News & World Report revealed that when clients leave their current provider it’s not because of a pricing or product problem, but a “people” problem. People that no longer value their business, or seem indifferent to it. A whopping 68% of them.

• A fractional 14% defected because of a pricing issue followed by 9% who were successfully wooed by a competitor.

• With Google Real-Time Search the playing field has been leveled.

• No longer can you or your competition sit back and think they own their TOP organic Google positions!

Google search engine ranking factors are among the most important items to check in any SEO work. This will ensure that the strategies formulated are effective, current and optimal for the best search engine ranking results. Every search engine optimization analysis examines the website's performance against these important ranking factors. This article series will take a closer look at these factors and find evidence for their existence, so you will know that you are on the right track when performing SEO on your website.

If deficiencies are found in a site's Google search engine ranking factors, the SEO in charge will attempt to make some changes to the website in such a way that it will now become search engine friendly and compliant with SEO ranking factors. Taken from a broader perspective, these improvements cover three important aspects:

• Content (using optimal titles, checking content quality, focusing relevance to targeted keywords, etc).

• Links (how other sites reference the website in terms of quality and quantity).

• Technical aspects (i.e. crawlability of the website) to name just three.

Are all big factor's in SEO, to improve Web Site Search Engine Rankings, with the Top Ten Search Engines, like Google, Alta Vista, AOL Search, Ask Jeeves, Excite, Inktomi, Lycos, MSN, Teoma and Yahoo.

SEO is the skillful art of placing researched keywords, that have a known searching audience, into various places on a web page that are known to be given weight by the ranking systems and algorithms of Major Search Engines

It is estimated that less than two percent of the commercial and small business website content writing on the Internet have had any optimization for search engines today still.

Our SEO Campaign Management Services provides you with the ultimate search engine optimization (SEO) system - virtually ensuring you will obtain top ten search engines rankings for your chosen web sites and keywords to Improve Web Site Search Engine Rankings

Google's Real-Time Search Changes Everything

Today Google Real-Time Search Changes Everything

The real-time Web is here. Google has officially jumped into real-time search, taking full advantage of its recent partnerships and changing the face of search engine optimization. Conduct a search on Google and you might now see a sizable part of the page dedicated to real-time search. This is a scrolling, live update of content from across the Web about your query and one of the most significant public-facing changes Google has made in a long time. It's also one of the biggest changes to SEO (as it applies to Google) in recent history as reported by Website Magazine.

The real-time updates - or Latest results - take up a significant portion of screen space. After the sponosored listings at the top of the page, then the top organic result comes the real-time updates. In some cases, the box is also very close to the fold. In short, as it stands today, your company's organic listings might have already changed dramatically. While the total number of results does not seem to have changed, you might have dropped below the fold. That means checking your search positions immediately, and getting to work on improving them.

Below is a Google results page for Obama health care. The first result is the top result, then you will see the real-time results. The bottom result after the real-time box is just above the fold. This is a hot topic, so keep in mind that not all queries will produce real-time results, or results will be ordered differenlty. For example, a search for zhu zhu (a popular toy this holiday season) shows real-time results, but at the very bottom of the page. Also impacting the position of real-time results and normal organic listings will be the number of paid search results.

Real Time Search

One thing is for certain - Web professionals stock in Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, FriendFeed, Jaiku and Identi.ca just went through the roof. Those companies are now partners, waist-deep in the Google mix; and that's where many of the real-time results are coming from. In short, if you're not on some or all of these networks, its time to get started. And you must go beyond just making a profile. These real-time results will take into account your social graph - the connections you make and your authority in the space, as well as the content you provide on these networks. We're talking quality here. Businesses must provide value to their social connections. For example, if you tweet an important piece of information and it gets re-tweeted by your followers, you can bet Google will take notice. Google will be examining accounts' social stock and including those in the updates - on the first page of Google. You will also notice that real-time results are not limited to social networks, but include blogs and other websites. Content creation and optimization (creative copy, keyword-friendliness, etc.) becomes a mission-critical business objective.

It will also be interesting to see if these new partner networks get flooded with content noise, once publishers realize the opportunity. It's quite possible the personal space users feel they have within networks like Facebook will be come serious spam magnets.

•At least first page placement is vital to be effective on the Internet. Your potential customer, client or user rarely clicks beyond the third bona-fide choice they are presented with. If your site is not on the top half of the first page, forget about being effective on the Internet.

•Strong placement on the Internet is becoming an absolute necessity, even for brick and mortar based retailers and non-internet related service providers. Consumers under 40 years of age are much more likely to search the Internet first for almost anything (making the "Yellow Pages" and other directory advertising much less effective).

•Companies that offer "voodoo" search engine positioning or "secret" methods will tell you not to expect results for several months. Meantime, they will keep asking you for money. While you're waiting for results, potential customers are doing business with someone else WHO IS NOW at the top of the search engines .

Eagles & Bears Blessed are the Peacemakers

Eagles and Bears | Veretekk Platinum Control | Blessed are the Peacemakers

Eagles and Bears - Blessed are the Peacemakers

The war had been going on for centuries.  The war between the Eagles and the Bears.  Nobody in the forest knew what started the war.  But everyone know how often Bears were injured terribly or killed by dive bombing Eagles or just as often Eagles were killed in large numbers by sudden attacks by Bears or as they dove and the Bears swatted them from the sky.  Far too often the ones hurt the most were the children or babies or mommies of the baby Eagles and Bears who wanting nothing more than peace to raise their children.

Nevertheless, rumor had been in the air for a long time of a war to end all wars.  A final battle was coming that would pit every Bear in the woods against every Eagle and a final victor will emerge.  But nobody knew when that day would come.  But that day did come, before anyone was prepared for it.  It came about when Bartholomew Bear was playing in the woods by himself.  He wasn’t supposed to do that but sometimes children forget the warnings of their parents because they want so much to explore and learn.  He was chasing a butterfly laughing and leaping at it from a log to a stump to a rock and then to the ground.

Suddenly he felt a shooting pain in his foot.  He cried out before he even know what happened but he heard the SNAP of that man trap closed on his foot and he knew he was in big trouble.  He must have cried for hours wishing his Mommy or Daddy would come.  Little did he know they were preparing for the final battle, the war to end all wars with the Eagles. 

The butterfly lit on his bear shoulder.  “Can’t you get your foot out Bartholomew?”  The butterfly said.  “I want to play some more.”

“NO,” the little Bear cried big tears in his eyes.  “This trap has my leg in these pointy claws and it really hurts.”

“There is another one right next to it.”  Mr. Butterfly observed.  “Make sure you don’t get your other foot in it.  I will fly for help.”

“Yes please hurry.”  The sad little Bear begged his friend.  It was not long later that Bartholomew saw his help coming.  Dozens and dozens of bears appeared on the ridge. 

“Wow they sent everyone” he remarked to himself as more and more Bears lined up on that ridge and just stood there staring over at the other ridge on the opposite side of the valley Bartholomew was in. 

On the other side, the armies of the Eagles were gathering.  Filling the trees of the thick forest there, they dug their talons in and stared hatefully at the army of Bears just across the way not knowing the poor helpless Bear cub was trapped between them.

“DADDY HELP ME!”  Bartholomew’s voice suddenly rang out.  Both armies looked into the valley and recognized the plight of the child Bear.  He was crying loudly as he looked up spotting his Mommy and Daddy in the Bear army on the ridge.  Oh, the hearts of that Mommy and Daddy were torn seeing their child in that spot.  When the battle begins in just moments, the two armies will rush into that valley and the killing will be most awful. 

The Chieftain of the Eagles watched the little Bear.  His heart was touched but not enough to call off the attack.  “Daddy we have to stop it.”  His son Edgar Eagle said to him perched on the same branch with him.

“No son.”  The king of the Eagles declared.  “We can only hope somehow the Bear child survives the battle.”  The Chiefton of the Eagles watched the situation, unwilling to call the attack but unwilling to call it off.  He did not see the tiny Mr. Butterfly light on the beak of Edgar Eagle.

The entire armies of Bears were in anguish watching Bartholomew struggle.  But despite the begging of Bartholomew’s Mommy and Daddy, the King of the Bears would not call off the attack.  The clamor for war began to rise and Bartholomew was terribly afraid.  Suddenly, before the call to attack, a lone eagle soared out from the wooded side of the valley ridge.  All eyes were glued to that lone figure as it did several near spins and spiraled down in long elegant arches toward the stranded Bartholomew.  All of a sudden, the king of the Eagles knew who it was. 

“EDGAR VeretekkPlatinumControl” The cry went out and both army’s tensed knowing the son of the King of the eagles had gone into the valley first.  He landed at the side of the frightened Bear and looked at his injured leg.  “Don’t worry.”  Edgar VeretekkPlatinumControl said to Bartholomew.  “I come to help” but as he moved around assessing the problem.  SNAP the other trap closed on Edgar’s foot.  While Edgar VeretekkPlatinumControl was a soldier, the pain of the trap caused him to cry out in misery.

Without a call to war, suddenly two figures burst from either side of the valley.  The King of the Eagles shot form the ranks to the aid of his son and the king of the Bears rushed to help the fallen Bartholomew.  Seeing their kings’ rush to save the children, both sides suddenly dropped their armor and weapons and rushed into the valley.  The thunderous stampede was not a charge to battle and death but to save the precious youth plus the internet marketing newbie and for mercy. 

Within moments, the two armies were working like a single-minded people to free the children.  The Bears had the strength to pull open the traps and the Eagles the keen eyesight and ability to figure out the mechanisms so they opened them safely.  Slowly and carefully, the traps were pulled from the legs of Bartholomew and Edger and they were free.  Bartholomew rushed to the arms of the king of the Bears weeping with gratitude and Edger VeretekkPlatinumControl to the king of the Eagles CEO Tom Prendergast embracing him for stopping the attack to save their lives.  Then, just as though it was the natural thing to do, Bartholomew ran to the king of the Eagles and embraced him and Edgar wept in the arms of the King of the Bears. 

A thunderous shout of celebration went up from both armies.  The war was over forever.  Never again would the Bears and the Eagles live in warfare but instead they would be brothers and friends for eternity.  And all because the son of the King was willing to fly into the valley and was willing to give his life to save his enemy and give him life instead of death.

SEO Link-building Mistakes

7 Deadly SEO Link-building Mistakes

We hope this information will help you develop your web-site to a more effective and profitable. Stop by for a Free Web Site Evaluation of your Business

SEO link-building has become one of the main high leverage activities in any online business. The simple fact is that back-links will give you a high page rank and a high page rank will rank you higher in the S.E.R.P's. Obviously this means more traffic and more money, as reported by VodaHost General & Forum Administrator

Back-links make up 90% of your Google rank and because of this, link-building has taken on a life of its own. Most people seem to misunderstand it completely. For starters you should know that not all back links are good links. They can actually hurt you more than help you.

SEO Link-building is all about building links that are natural. Google did not design their ranking system to be manipulated. It was designed to reward good sites that get linked to it naturally. That's why getting the right links can be incredibly difficult if you try and do it manually.

Unfortunately, you have to build in links these days otherwise you will not be competitive. If you sit around and wait for sites to link to you, you might wait forever. The good thing is that this also give the "small guy" a fair shake to get good rankings in Google, Yahoo and M.S.N.

Most guys build Back-links kamikaze style; that is they go in there and just get as many links they can from wherever they can and at whatever cost. This is a recipe for disaster. Once your site gets marked by Google, you might as well start over again.

Rogue link-building techniques can render months of hard work useless, so be very careful when building Back-links. Here are the 7 deadly S.E.O link-building mistakes. Avoid them at all costs.

Mistake #1: Mass Link Packages

Obviously, some sleazy and unscrupulous people are out there selling link packages that are not even worth a mention. Most of the time they blast ads out to classified directories or other spam filled networks. These links are the equivalent of buying spam email lists. Don't do it. Your links might end up on banned sites that can really hurt your Google image.

Mistake #2: Link Exchanges

Back in the day, exchanging links was the main S.E.O link-building strategy. You link to me, I link to you and we both win. Right? Wrong! Google caught on to this when hundreds of link farms opened up. Google can easily trace reciprocal links and they simply don't count for much anymore. Getting links from big link exchange networks can actually hurt your business.

Mistake #3: Linking From Non-Indexed Sites

Most people who spend hours building those free Back-links make the mistake of building links on non-indexed sites. For your back links to count, the page on which you have your link has to be indexed. Having links on non-indexed pages means nothing. It's a waste of time.

Mistake #4: Not Using Anchor Text

At first this probably won't sound too scary, but if you build 2,000 links without relevant anchor text your site can easily pass for a spam site that just gets random links. By using anchor text that is related to your site, it gives your links link-juice; meaning it makes your links relevant and increases the perceived value of each link.

Mistake #5: Not Being Relevant

Google is getting smarter by the day. After all it is their business to provide the most relevant information for each and every search that is conducted. If they don't, people will stop using Google. That's why they protect it so vigorously. When you get Back-links from relevant and related sites that would naturally link to you, then the link will count for a lot. Unrelated and random links from any old site really does not make Google see your site as being important.

Mistake #6: Inorganic links

As I mentioned earlier, Google designed the page rank system to work organically. They are looking for links to come to your site naturally. For the most part that means, slowly and consistently over time from a variety of related sites. If you go and get 1000 links overnight from the same site then Google's alarms will go off and you might land yourself in some Back-linking trouble with the big G. Slow and steady wins the race - especially if you have a new site.

Mistake #7: Buying Links

High PR Back-links are worth gold. Quite literally. I've seen a single PR7 link sell for as much as $250 per month. There are a lot of link networks out there that make it their business to sell links on high PR sites. These links have become quite expensive, but the lure of instant results have people buying links like it's going out of fashion.

Google is catching on and there has been widespread reports of Google slapping page rank. If links are publicly traded then Google can probably trace them and penalize you.

SEO link-building is all about being as natural and as organic as possible. Always go after links that are 1-way, relevant and on sites with a high page rank. If you can get links on pages with a high page rank, even better. Don't fall for the quick-fix promise of so many link building services. In the long run, slow and steady links that look natural will keep sending more and more traffic your way.

I hope this information will help you develop your web-site to a more effective and profitable.

Paid Search Is About Process, Not Planning

Paid Search Is About Process, Not Planning

Many times we’re asked to present a plan for the next 30 – 60 – 90 days of a paid search program. This makes a great deal of sense when we bring a new client on board and have to fix or re-build their program. It takes time to build out a program comprehensively and laying out the priorities helps manage expectations. After that point that request for a “vision” or “plan” reveals a fundamental misunderstanding about the nature of paid search marketing as reported by George Michie .

Paid search is an amazingly powerful channel for capturing existing demand. It is not a demand generating channel. Like the yellow pages people only see the ads when they’re in the market for the advertiser’s products or services. Yellow page ads don’t make people interested in taking yoga; they convince people who are interested in yoga to try the advertiser’s studio. Paid search plays the same role, but it’s easy for marketers steeped in traditional channels to miss the implications of this fact.

For demand generating channels planning is of paramount importance. Television ads seek to 1) create awareness of a brand; 2) infuse that brand awareness with positive connotations; and 3) catapult that positive awareness into action. Marketers must plan the proper messaging and imagery for each phase, and plan the timing and budgets. Even direct marketers like catalogers must plan contact strategies, page counts and formats, circulation counts and frequency of touches. Planning is required because the marketer must generate interest and action, and the time lag between marketing investment and eventual payoff is both long and not guaranteed.

Paid search is different in every respect. Budgets don’t make sense for advertisers with shopping carts on their sites because the sales happen before they pay for the ads. We don’t have to plan what products to push or when; the ads will be served to the right audience at the right time and in the right volume to respond to consumer demand.

This is not to suggest that paid search requires no work. Paid search demands well honed processes for dealing with product turnover, landing page changes, promotional offers, seasonal shifts and more. Skilled analysts study data six-ways-to-Sunday to find nuggets of gold in search logs, in click-to-order intervals, and in new classification schemes that feed statistically meaningful differentiators to our algorithms. Reacting to shifts in consumer behavior and anticipating them whenever possible takes knowledge, skill and mountains of well-organized data.

However, it doesn’t really require a plan. Indeed, predicting what projects will be most valuable 30 days from now, or 60 is both impossible and unwise. The priorities change depending on all kinds of factors outside of the analyst’s control. Locking an analyst into an arbitrary schedule prevents them from adjusting to the priorities of the moment and thereby squancders opportunities.

Asking an analyst for a long range plan for a paid search campaign is like asking your stock broker what stocks you should buy and which you should sell 6 months from now. They can make those recommendations if you really want them, but usually you’d be wise not follow them.

Absence of “a plan” is unsettling, particularly when you’re working with an agency. You can’t see them hard at work at their desks every day, so it’s natural to wonder whether they’re asleep at the switch. This fear is compounded by the reality of PPC agencies that all too often are asleep at the switch.

Trust comes from results, and in PPC results come from smart people with great tools and great processes. Anticipating and reacting to changes in the landscape requires hard work, knowledge, skills and the flexibility to follow one’s nose.

When to Run Away from an SEO Company

When to Run Away from an SEO Company

You probably shouldn't be charged for a couple things that many "back alley" or "strip mall" SEO companies and consultants still offer. In some cases, even larger marketing organizations are trying to push value into some tactics that are outdated or simply don't work to help rankings, as reported by Chris Boggs, Search Engine Watch, Sept 2009

No two sites on the Internet are identical. In rare instances, some of the below tactics may work. But most of the time, if your SEO company is pushing these services on you, take a good hard look at what you're paying for.

SEO Tactic Octogenarians: Time for Forced Retirement

1. Submitting Sites to Search Engines: There's a big difference between submitting your site to the search engines and submitting your site to Directories, Link Pages, Online Malls, Classified Sites! . This type of submission is a very important part of link building, and has continually proven to be valuable.

Submitting your sites to the search engines isn't as valuable to SEO. This simply offers another way for the search engines to find your site. If all you do is submit it to the search engines and sit back and wait, you likely won't see any rankings, other than potentially for your brand name.

Search engines no longer need you to submit to them, although they still provide the functionality for you to do so. As Google says on their submission page, however, "We do not add all submitted URLs to our index, and we cannot make any predictions or guarantees about when or if they will appear."

Google and the other engines are fine taking this additional information, but if you're paying someone to do this once, or even monthly, then you're wasting time and money. As Google also states: "Only the top-level page from a host is necessary; you do not need to submit each individual page. Our crawler, Googlebot, will be able to find the rest. Google updates its index on a regular basis, so updated or outdated link submissions are not necessary. Dead links will 'fade out' of our index on our next crawl when we update our entire index."

2. SEO Landing Pages: Another outdated tactic is building landing pages just for SEO, although this is a temporary solution that e-commerce companies sometimes choose to take rather than spending the time fixing the actual site and navigation. In most cases, if you want long-term results without sacrificing user experience consistency, you should optimize your actual content versus trying to create circa 2001 "doorway pages."

3. Reciprocal Linking: The last outdated tactic is using reciprocal linking as a primary link building tactic. If your SEO company or consultants requires that you place an outbound link to every site that is linking to you, then you should run away. Some reciprocal links aren't bad, especially ones that occur naturally -- just be worried if this is the only link building tactic presented.

SEO Tactics on the Bubble

1. Social Bookmarking: One tactic that has very few concrete results is social bookmarking. Some people will likely argue this, but we've yet to prove ranking lift from the addition of a URL to a Delicious or StumbleUpon. These and other links appear within backlink reports, but that alone doesn't indicate that the link is helping from a SEO perspective.

Yahoo-owned MyBlogLog cleans out their bookmark links on a regular basis. As seen in this FAQ, they provide a good reason for this: "New with Me is a moving river of updates. We are not trying to re-create the Internet. We store the last 100 items and up to 25 'clusters' of events. If you're interested in looking at older updates, we direct you to the original service provider for the full archive."

It's very important to understand that not all links are permanent. Thus, to build lasting SEO value, the majority of links developed should be permanent and carry some sort of authority.

Of course, a "natural" pattern would be that some links come and go. But if you spend a large amount of time (or are pay someone else for) building links using social bookmarking or other "expiring" link tactics, you won't get full value from your time investment.

Please note that some people do this at an almost "industrial" level to help boost rankings, by building literally thousands of links, and "refreshing" the links with new ones as they age or get stale. This would only look natural to a search algorithm if the target site has tens of thousands of existing links. Those using this tactic need to keep building links over and over, and have likely budgeted hundreds of hours to support this task with the amount of hours that it would need to provide long lasting value.

2. Article Syndication: Other tactics that are "on the bubble" include large-scale article syndication and "press release over-optimization." Articles that are relevant to your site and contain links pointed back can be valuable if syndicated on a limited basis to hand-picked partners, but using mass syndication services doesn't often yield the kinds of backlinks that could be garnered from a more personalized approach. The jury is definitely still out on this tactic, but a custom approach (which takes longer) provides value.

3. Over-Optimizing Press Releases: Press release "over-optimization" is something that many readers have probably seen after setting up an RSS feed to monitor a particular word or industry phrase. I always laugh when I see the same SEO company put out a press release every time it signs a new client, because when I check even month later, they haven't climbed in the rankings for the terms they seem to be targeting.

The use of press releases and syndicating through PR Newswire or PRWeb can be valuable, but like article syndication, this tactic must be leveraged in moderation. If you're concerned about how many press releases you've sent out to support your SEO efforts, consider if you're overdoing it. For large companies with lots of relevant news, however, this is a different story -- these companies may be OK with up to two to three press releases a week, and you might as well take the time to optimize them.

SEO Marketing Channel

SEO is the marketing channel that brings potential customers to your site who want what you offer, but don't know how to find you. These are people that will browse through the search engine listings of websites that show up for the product or service they're looking for, and choose one to purchase from. If your site only shows up for your brand name, you're not even in the game; the sale will likely go to one of your competitors who have an optimized website.

If you only want to serve the needs of people who already know your brand and aren't interested in new customers, then you don't need SEO. But if you want to use every marketing channel at your disposal, SEO is one of the most cost-effective marketing channels to bring in people who don't already know about you but want exactly what you offer.

SEO Chatter Eulogy For Yahoo

SEO Chatter Eulogy For Yahoo

This SEO update is brought to you by SEO Specialist Online, Professional SEO Consultant and Content Writers for all your SEO needs. For a Free Web Site Evaluation Visit Here

A Search Eulogy For Yahoo  And then there were two.

Make no mistake, Yahoo’s out of the search game. I know the spin. Better user interface, new ways to innovate, a winning play. Let’s not kid ourselves. They’re done. Not today, not necessarily in a year, but down the line at some point. Done, as reported by Danny Sullivan

And it’s sad, because they were one of the originals. There was a time when the mighty Yahoo roared above all other search engines. When people were so worried about being listed in Yahoo that they pondered lawsuits over the issue, because not being in Yahoo was like not being on the internet at all.

Sound familiar? Yeah, Yahoo was the Google of its day. Funny to write that — it should be Google is the Yahoo of its day, but that’s how the tables turned in the search space.

Yahoo started out in search as a human-compiled directory. Editors, finding sites, writing short descriptions about them. It worked at first. When it didn’t, Yahoo had partners that “crawled” the web automatically to provide “backup” to its directory results. Open Text was its first partner. Later came AltaVista, then Inktomi, then eventually Google.

Ah, Google. It demonstrated that you could index millions (now billions) of pages AND have relevancy. Why use a card catalog-like human directory when you had a tool like Google that could read every page in every book in the library and pull back the matching pages?

Eventually, Yahoo decided it needed to own crawler technology. In 2003, it bought Inktomi and AllTheWeb. It also bought Overture, to have paid search technology and got AltaVista as part of the deal. All these things it needed to own, we were told, because search was so essential that you couldn’t outsource:

Given how important search is to our businesses, we really needed to control our own destiny in this space and not be dependent on any one third-party provider

That’s what I was told at the beginning of 2003 by Jeff Weiner, then senior vice president of search and marketplace at Yahoo. What’s changed since then? How did search go back to being a commodity to Yahoo?

Microsoft squeezed it. No blame to Microsoft. Yahoo was sitting there with leadership that couldn’t communicate clearly how it was a strong second-place player to Google. It seemed weak, ripe for the picking, and Microsoft went to pluck it last year. Google tried for Yahoo itself through a partnership deal. The US Department of Justice, like Amy Winehouse, sang “No, no, no.” Do that, and we’ll take anti-trust action against you, Google.

Microsoft never went away, though to its credit, it continued to improve its own search offering making it even more credible. Bing’s a long way from being proven. Perhaps it might never have succeeded. But it got buzz. Not only was it not embarrassing, it was impressive to some. Yahoo didn’t seem as necessary to Microsoft’s plans.

We’ll never know if Bing could have succeeded on its own. Or, maybe we will, if the proposed deal doesn’t go through. It’s still just a proposal, subject to investor and regulatory approval. But if it does go through, Microsoft becomes the number two search player. It controls the core search technology. Yahoo will have “parity” with Microsoft to use the search technology, we’re told. Soothing-sounding words, but parity doesn’t matter when Yahoo seemingly has given up on search as a top attraction overall.

Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz has made plenty of noise about how Yahoo isn’t just a search engine. Or not even a search engine, at times. How Yahoo has some of the web’s top destinations. That’s true, all true. But search was a leading property as well, for Yahoo. Yahoo wouldn’t consider outsourcing its email or IM services. Wouldn’t decide that its Yahoo Finance area could be powered by someone else. So why’s search got the boot?

Because Microsoft wants it, and they weren’t going away. Neither was Bartz standing up to definitively say that in the long term, it made more sense for Yahoo to keep search as a core technology. That few companies had such crown jewels. That technology alone a year ago worth $1 billion to Microsoft didn’t suddenly become worth no upfront payment a year later.

But also because Yahoo seems to have no choice. It keeps losing talent. It’s fine to have a great machine, but someone’s got to run it — keep developing it. So if I sound harsh about Yahoo getting out of search, I’m also understanding. It would have been incredibly difficult to keep it.

AOL and Lycos are two examples of portals that gave up their own search technologies and watched their traffic drop. Perhaps Yahoo will be the exception. Perhaps it will surprise me and be a long-time search player — a place where substantial amounts of searches happen. Part of me hopes it plays out that way, if only for nostalgic reasons.

But I doubt it.

More Americans Online because of Recession

This SEO update is brought to you by SEO Specialist Online, Professional SEO Consultant and Content Writers for all your SEO needs. For a Free Web Site Evaluation Visit Here

Recession Sends More and More Americans Online

The recession has affected Americans in many ways, forcing people to cut back on their spending and in some cases, out of their homes. According to a new study, it seems that more and more U.S. residents are heading online in search of solutions to their financial woes states Brandon Dimmel.

In the past, community leaders and social workers were relied upon by Americans looking for help during tough economic times. However, today there's an easier way to consult experts for assistance.

Americans Hope for Quicker Solutions Online

A recent study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project found that most Americans have ventured online to get help with their economic problems. In fact, the study estimates an astounding 88 per cent of all American Internet users have employed the web in order to research the recession and solutions of their own financial concerns. (Source: Internetnews.com)

Pew director and report co-author Lee Rainie believes the results reveal Americans' desire to get the information they need to help get through this difficult period. "People are anxious about these hard times," said Rainie. "They are more information-hungry than in normal times." (Source: reuters.com)

Web Used as Multi-Purpose Tool

The unemployment rate continued to grow last month, hitting 9.5 per cent across the U.S. With more people out of work, the Internet has received increased traffic with people both searching for solutions and creating their own blogs to help resolve the problem.

However, the web isn't just being used to search for jobs or financial advice. Many Americans are using it to research products they might have otherwise purchased more impulsively.

And that means several things: for one, there is a greater market than ever before for sites dedicated to protecting and educating the average consumer. However, it could also mean more Americans vulnerable to Internet predators. The challenge for security experts will be to keep the sharks at bay with more fish in the sea than ever before.

What do we Mean by Keywords, and Why do They Matter?

http://www.seo-specialist-online.com

This SEO update is brought to you by SEO Specialist Online, Professional SEO Consultant and Content Writers for all your SEO needs. For a Free Web Site Evaluation Visit Here

What do we Mean by Keywords, and Why do They Matter?

Keywords are the foundation of any Search Engine Optimization or Search Marketing campaign. If you don’t know what keywords are being used in searches by the people you want to attract to your Web site, you can’t effectively market through the search engines to those people.

The terms keyword is often used as shorthand for keyword phrase. When we use the term keyword, we mean the word—or words—that may be typed into a search engine by someone carrying out a search. In fact most searches these days are not single-word searches … most searchers now type two or more words in their searches.

If you’re reading this, you probably already understand why you need to know the keywords people use when searching for products or services such as those promoted by your Web site. Just in case …

• If you don’t know the keywords, you can’t optimize your Web site properly.
• If you don’t know the keywords, you don’t know what keywords to put in links pointing to your site.
• If you don’t know the keywords, you don’t know which keywords to bid on in Pay Per Click programs.

Selecting keywords, then, is important. But there are two ways to select the keywords you need for your campaigns:
• Guess
• Do a full keyword analysis

The most popular method is to guess at the keywords. The most effective method, however, is to do a full keyword analysis (which actually begins with you guessing at what keywords you think are important, then using a free KeyWord tool to “dig” into databases of actual search terms).

What happens if you simply guess at the search terms you need, and don’t do a full keyword analysis? Typically two problems arise:

• Many of the keywords on your list will be more or less irrelevant. People simply aren’t using them in searches.
• You’ll miss keywords that people are using to search for your product or service.

What Does an SEO Specialist Do?

Essentially, a SEO Specialist does two things:

• Helps you develop a list of likely keyword phrases. SEO Specialist searches other Web site’s KEYWORDS tags and searches a thesaurus, to help you create a preliminary list of keyword phrases.

• Based on these keyword phrases, it shows you what people using the Web’s search engines are actually typing into the search engines.

How to accept credit cards for small business

SEO-Specialist-Online.com

This SEO update is brought to you by SEO Specialist Online, Professional SEO Consultant and Content Writers for all your SEO needs. For a Free Web Site Evaluation Visit Here

How to accept credit cards for small business

The benefits of accepting credit cards almost always outweigh the risks, and the chances of this are greatly improved if you do your homework before opening a merchant account. In this article I’ll talk about the importance of accepting credit cards, what to expect as you compare merchant accounts and how to keep your merchant account in good standing once you begin processing.

Convincing a business owner that they need to start accepting credit cards isn’t as tough as it once was and it’s getting easier every day. Credit and debit cards are a staple in consumers’ wallets and the trend isn’t showing signs of letting up any time soon. For merchants, the ability to accept credit cards often translates to larger average tickets and greater gross monthly sales volumes. Of course, along with the greater sales volume comes the expense of processing credit card transactions. Fortunately, profit from increased sales typically far outweighs processing costs.Here are a few helpful points that you should know before beginning your search for a merchant account.

Merchant account fees are not standardized

Merchant account Rates and fees vary widely from one provider to the next. Aside from the amount of fees charged, some accounts will have entire categories of fees that others won’t. As you being to research your options, look at every account as an individual.

Credit card processing rates and fees are not written in stone

Haggling is the name of the game when it comes to negotiating the best merchant account rates and fees. Consider the rates and fees of an initial merchant account quote as a starting point from which you can start to reducing costs.

There are a lot of providers competing for your business

Don’t begin and end your search at your local bank or even with the providers in your town. There are thousands of merchant service providers all competing for your business. Use this competition to your advantage to get the best rates possible. Consider using a web site like CardFellow.com to get quotes from multiple providers from a national market.

Once you begin contacting merchant service providers, you should expect to encounter some pretty good sales people that may employ high-pressure sales tactics. The key is to remain methodical in your search process and look at the facts surrounding an account, not the salesperson’s interpretation of them.

The best and truly knowledgeable salespeople will use the rates and fees of their merchant account quote to help portray the benefits of their offer. They’ll take the time to learn about your business, present calculations and estimations of processing expenses using an effective rate, and they’ll take the time to answer your questions in a consultative manner. These are the salespeople to look for, but not necessarily the ones to expect.

Once you decide upon a merchant account provider and start accepting credit cards, your education about credit card processing has just begun. Don’t look at the task as complete, but as just beginning. The bankcard industry is always changing and new regulations that affect you are commonly brought to legislative attention. The phrase “knowledge is power” translates to merchants in the bankcard industry as “knowledge is money.” The more you know about credit card processing, the more you will be able to save yourself in processing expenses.

Once you begin processing credit cards, frequent reliable and unbiased sources on the subject to keep yourself up to date about the industry and ways you can optimize your merchant account to lower costs. The best sources of merchant account information are the ones that aren’t trying selling you processing services.

A wealth of Information to help businesses that start accepting credit cards find the best merchant account is available at the MerchantCouncil.org.

Submit Your Site Properly

This SEO update is brought to you by SEO Specialist Online, Professional SEO Consultant and Content Writers for all your SEO needs. For a Free Web Site Evaluation Visit Here

Easy steps to submitting your website in the right category.

Submitting to the Open Directory Project:

Yes, the Open Directory Project is free, and yes, you can submit much more quickly. But the problem is there's no guarantee that your site will be listed. I've seen sites get into the Open Directory Project within a week or two of submission, and I've seen others that waited months without ever getting in. In addition, the submission forms sometimes don't seem to work! But don't give up. As I mentioned earlier on that, the Open Directory Project is very important. Here's how to submit:

1. Read the editor's guidelines at dmoz.org/guidelines/describing. html. If you know what guidelines the editors use, you may be able to avoid problems. It's hard to get into the directory, so you might as well give yourself the best chance of getting in.

2. Go to www.dmoz.org. The Open Directory Project home page appears.

3. Find a suitable category for your site.

4. Click the Suggest URL link at the top of the page.

5. Follow the (fairly simple) directions. Submitting to the Open Directory Project is much easier than doing so to Yahoo! Directory.

You simply enter your home page's URL, a short title, a 25-30- word description for the site, and your e-mail address. That's it. Then you wait.

But understand that the editors at DMOZ don't care about your site, they care about the directory; in fact, read the DMOZ forums at www.resource-zone. com and you'll find that the attitude tends to be "tells us about your site, then go away and forget about it."

There are all sorts of factors working against you:

- There are 8,000 editors managing over 700,000 categories.

- Many small directories may only be reviewed by an editor every six months . . . or far less frequently.

 The editors regard a six-month wait, or longer, not particularly excessive.

- In some cases editors may even ignore submissions. As one editor explained, "there is no obligation to review them in any order nor is there a requirement to review them as a priority . . . some editors find it more productive to seek out sites on their own and rarely visit the suggested sites."

Search Engine Optimization, Website Development and Search Engine Spiders

Do you have some experience with HTML and web site development, but haven't really gotten your feet wet with search engine optimization? Keep reading, because you're in luck. In this article we'll cover some of the more important aspects of SEO, focusing on the changes that you should find easiest to make to your web site. After you read this, you should know where to concentrate your efforts now and going forward.

HTML Tags and SEO

The <Title> tag is the most important part of the page. It is the tag that visitors see in search results, and it should contain your targeted keywords. The title tag can make your page rank or make it disappear from search results. Use this format for web page title tags:

Keywords | Website Name or Brand

It's okay to include only  your keywords without the site name, especially if you aren't branding using other Internet marketing methods.

Your <h1> tag is very important. As with the web page title, you should include your targeted keywords in this tag.

Your <h2> tag is next in importance. You should put keyword variations in this tag It's okay to be more natural here.

Your <h3> is less important, but still very useful. Promote keyword variations or subheadings using the H3 tag. You can relax a bit with this one and mention keywords only once in a while.

Now that we've talked about the title tags, let's briefly touch on links so you can see one aspect of why getting the keywords in your title tag is important. An incoming link to your pages is typically formed like so:

Link: <a href ="http://www.site.com/page.htm" title="keyword">anchor text keywords</a>

It's very important to include targeted keywords in anchor text in inbound links. You should also use targeted keywords in internal links, including navigation. The search engines take strong notice of keywords in these positions.

This is true for links that are followed. But what about links that are designated nofollow? Many blogs and other sites make any links in comments automatically nofollow.

Next Time Link No followed

So, tell me, have you heard about Web 2.0? It’s a term you see applied to a lot of Web sites on the Internet these days, but today, I’m going to go a little more in depth about its meaning. Web 2.0 describes the changing trend in the use of the World Wide Web technology and Web design that aims to enhance creativity, communications, secure information sharing, collaboration and functionality of the Web.

Those Web 2.0 concepts have led to the development of Web communities, social networking sites (MySpace and Facebook), video sharing sites (YouTube), wikis (Wikipedia) and blogs (Blogger). Wow! You probably use Web 2.0 Web sites more than you thought, am I right? Well, let's learn even more about it!

A Web 2.0 Web site doesn’t have any technical specifications. It refers to the revolution of using the Internet as a platform. That is, using a Web site to perform a task instead of a program on an operating system. The 2.0 refers to a rebirth after the end of the 2001 dot com bubble, which I’m sure you heard about in one way or another.

Worst SEO Mistakes - Alt Tag Stuffing

SEO

Content Writers Professional SEO Consultants | SEO News Tricks  SEO Campaign Management

This SEO update is brought to you by Jim Gras and the SEO Specialist Online, Professional SEO Consultant and Content Writers for all your SEO needs. For a Free Web Site Evaluation Visit Here

Last time we talked about Worst SEO Mistakes, this time lets discuss Alt Tag Stuffing

ALT tags are designed for blind people. Alt tags should describe images, buttons, navigation and other site elements to make browsing easier for those who can't see. Some people stuff their keywords into ALT tags, in hopes of ranking better in search results. This doesn't work. If spotted, you'll be punished.

On top of being ineffective, it's a real hassle for blind people who have to listen to the BS webmasters stuff into these tags to manipulate search engines. Use alt tags for image descriptions, and don't worry about the keywords.

Comment Spam

There are several types of comment spam.

One type uses robots to put in generic BS comments and links back to their owner's site in hopes of getting more valuable inbound links. Google discovered this and doesn't count comment links anymore. Bloggers also use the nofollow tag, so it doesn't matter if there are links in comments.

Another way to spam comments is to leave generic comments like "I did an article about this too, come check it out" in hopes of driving traffic and subscriptions.

Blog comments are designed for discussion, so saying something useful without intent to get something back plays a lot better in the long term. You get respect and eventually the blogger becomes more interested in you. Then you get your link.

Forum Spam

Forum spam involves leaving forum messages disguised as editorials, but are nothing more than ads for a website.

This type of spam looks really nasty and irritates all forum users. Don't do it. If you want to drive visitors from forums, participate in discussions, offer advice and help everyone. You will gain respect and people will visit your site from the signature. This time however, instead of saying "who the hell is that guy?!" they will land on the home page wit the thought of "that guy is good, let's see what he's built here."

Reliance on Meta Tags

Meta tag's days are not over. Keyword meta tags do work. I would spend more than just a few minutes on keyword meta tags. The description meta tag, is very useful. It is the description that shows in search results, so make sure there are clear calls to action.

Submission to a Bunch of Social Media Sites

You've probably seen those one-vote articles sitting in no-man's-land with headlines like "New marketing methods" and "Super interactive website www.spamsite.com" Those are attempts by marketers to get diggs, reddits and other types of votes. Social media marketing is a craft of its own, and a link to a generic site doesn't do it. You can learn a great deal about social media marketing over at Sphinn.

Roses in the New World

by Charlie Farricielli from Rose Farm Buy Farm Fresh Grower Direct 

Of the 200 species of Wild Roses know worlkdwide, about 35 are considered indigenous to the Unites State , which makes the rose a American as apple pie. The first American species mentioned in European texts was R. virginiana; notable other species are R. Carolina, the ‘Pasture Rose’, R. setigera, the ‘Praire Rose’, R. California, R woodsii and R. palustris, the ‘Swamp Rose’. Several of these are named after their naturally selected habitat. Captain John Smith wrote about the Indians of the James River Valley who planted Wild Roses to adorn their village surroundings. In 1621, Edward Winslow, a founder of the Plymouth Colony, planted lots of fragrant white, red and Damask Roses.

Modern Roses

In 1867, the French breeder Guillot introduced a medium pink variety called ‘La France ’. This variety was considered unique in that it possessed the general habit of a Hygrid Perpetual (Mme Victor Verdier’, its seed parent) as well as the elegantly shaped buds and free-flowering character of a Tea Rose (Mme Bravy’, the pollen parent). Recognition that “La France ’ demonstrated a new group was delayed for almost thirty years of acrimonious discussion in the popular horticultural magazine of the era. Gardener’s Chronicle. Nevertheless, the first Hybrid Tea had been born! Although technical difficulties hindered the direct mimicking of Guillot’s work, practical experience over the following twenty years finally resolved the problems and rapid expansion of the Hybrid Tea class with different colors and foliage took place. Hybrid Teas, now known as Large-flowered Roses, quickly replaced Hybrid Perpetuals in popularity in gardens all over Europe and America . Planned breeding has now developed over 10,000 Hybrid Teas that demonstrate a wide range of color and blends and even stripes!

How to be the world's WORST Notary / Signing Agent

Mobil Notary | All Purpose New York Notary | Apostille Processing | Legalization and Fingerprinting

Brought to you by Kenneth A Edelstein All Purpose Certified New York Mobile Notary

How to be the world's WORST Notary / Signing Agent

Never write things down - rely on your good memory. Book EVERY call that you get and go to the one that pays the most. Use the same stamp for life - after you cut off the "99" from the date then cut off the "19" and just write in the 2000 year. Never clean your stamp. Dress shabby - looking poor might get you a tip. Arrive late - they will appreciate you more when you finally show. Ignore all rules - backdate, fax notarizations, loan out your stamp and seal when you are on vacation - for a commission of course. Curse out the loan officer when the docs are late or over 50 pages. Shrink all e-docs to cheaper letter paper - legal paper costs too much anyway. Ship completed signings only on Saturday - it's easier to find parking.

Bait and Switch all "signing companies" demanding double the agreed fee - save this demand till an hour before scheduled time. Eat lots of beans and garlic - borrowers sign quickly in a flatulent environment. Charge extra for using your embosser - after all it's extra work. Never renew your commission - just update the stamp. Never check ID - nobody really gives a hoot who signed it as long as it's not blank. Retain the signature page of the mortgage till the title company pays you. If your check doesn't arrive promptly, sue the borrower - after all it's their signatures you notarized. Pirate other notaries web sites - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Send phony invoices to lots of Title Companies and signing agencies - collect what they did not pay other notaries.

You're entitled to give opinions about the interest rate and any aspect of the loan - be colorful in your comments.

Bring your lunch to the job - it shows you have good time management skills. Have the affiant sign in day glow green ink - legal docs need a bit of color. Always tell the borrower what you think they want to hear - promise anything to get them to sign quicker.

Put your stamp in the MIDDLE of the page - show them who's important. Never give the borrower a copy - most can't or won't read it anyway - and paper is expensive. Make a copy of the return FedEx/UPS airbill and use it to send your invoice if not paid in one week. When the borrower's apartment/home is a DUMP - it's OK to tell them so. You must tell all clients that you expect tips - otherwise how are they to know. This tongue in cheek humor from http://kenneth-a-edelstein.com

Park on the borrower's lawn so you won't be blocked in on their driveway. Any room without a No Smoking sign is your invitation to light up. If the borrower forgot to make a copy of their drivers' license just slip the original into the package when they are not looking. Make any changes to the documents that will get the borrower to sign - after all you are a public official with authority. A few drinks can help steady your hand. Off color, sexist and racist jokes show self confidence and professional ability. Never read signing instructions - who are they to boss you around? Keep phone charges down by calling the borrower collect. Learn to shortchange - clients usually have their mind on the documents. Never go alone - bring friends to help create a festive environment. Answer all "legal" questions with your best guess - it makes you appear very wise and lets you bill the borrower directly for your legal opinions.

THE ORIGINS OF CULTIVATED ROSES

Red Roses | Yellow Roses | Long Stem Roses | White Roses | Rose Bouquets

 

It has been estimated that 150 million plants are purchased by gardeners worldwide every year, and sophisticated breeding programs have produced a plant that dominates the world’s cut flower market; the annual crop is calculated in tons. Roses have also made a tremendous contribution to the perfume industry.

Roses boast an ancient lineage, and they are intricately entwined in our history and culture.

As a motif, the rose has been and still is depicted in many national emblems. It has been adopted by countless political factions, and even by businesses and several international events.

THE ORIGINS OF CULTIVATED ROSES
Rose’s species have a natural distribution through out most parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Paleontologists inform us that they become established in the Tertiary Period, which began 70 million years ago. This means that the ancestors of the rose predate the evolution of humans

Europe and the Middle East - The Dawn of Rose Breeding

Well before the Christian Era, the transportation of useful plants had played an essential part in the expansion of civilizations. The sprawling Roman Empire together with the excursions of Alexander the Great in Asia introduced many species never seen before in the Middle East and Europe . The dog rose ( Rosa canina), for example, was long thought to be a native of Britain , but was in fact brought there by the Romans.

By about AD 1200 the first five groups of domesticated roses had already begun to evolve in cultivation: Albas, Centifolias, Damasks, Gallicas and Scots Roses.

The Far East - the Birthplace of the Modern Garden Rose

Although rose growing enjoured high popularity in the gardens of Europe for many hundreds of years, it was not until the end of the eighteenth century, with the discovery of R. chinensis in China , that a major step forward was achieved. The revolutionary characteristic of this rose is its ability to flower repeatedly from early summer to late autumn.

Some commentators have used the term ‘perpetual flowering’ but this can be misinterpreted and used too literally. ‘Parson’s Pink China’, ‘Slater’s Crimson China’’, Hume’s Blush Tea-scented China’ and Parks’ Yellow Tea-scented China’ – the first cultivated varieties – opened up a new vista of roses with a modern classical shape, a true crimson color with a very pale hint of the early yellows and a repeat –flowering performance. The Far East became the birthplace of the Modern Garden Rose, and the rest is history.

Roses boast an Ancient Lineage, by Charlie Farricielli from Rose Farm Buy Farm Fresh Grower Direct  Do Something!

Prosperity Cast Network | Web 2.0 | Social Marketing | Mentors In Motion | Val Smyth | Jim Gras | MIM Online Magazine

This update is brought to you by Jim Gras, Val Smyth, The Prosperity Cast Network and MIM Online Magazine

Do Something!
 
When something is troubling you, that's your cue to take positive action to resolve it. That may seem obvious, yet far too often it's a choice that is overlooked or avoided.

The discomfort you feel is attempting to tell you something. It's time do what you can, what you must.

If the troubling situation is within your power to change, then do what's necessary to make it better. If it is something you cannot change, then take steps within your own life to put yourself out of reach of the negative consequences.

If resolving the issue will take considerable time, don't let that stop you. The sooner you get started, the more firmly in control you'll be.

Not only does it feel lousy to be worried and anxious, it does nothing to improve the situation. So choose to re- direct that negative energy into positive action.

Do something about it, and instead of being a helpless victim you suddenly become a powerful force for change. You'll quickly discover that it's a much better place to be. Take a Step
 
There's something out there in life that will delight and amaze you. Get up, get moving, and go find out what it is.

There is always more to life than what you've already been doing day after day. Climb up out of your rut and have a look around.

You'll see things that will ignite your passion. You'll find richness you never knew was there.

Can you recall the last time you experienced the thrill of discovery? Remember how great it felt?

You are wonderfully equipped to explore new territory. So by all means, make use of that valuable skill.

Inject some priceless energy into your life. Step boldly into the world and see what great things you can discover.

Your Approach
 
Is what you're doing now getting you where you want to be? If not, then it's time for some changes. Yes, change can be frightening and difficult. Yet it is immensely more desirable than continuing to put your effort into going where you don't want to go.

Most likely, some things you're now doing are working and some things are not. It will pay you enormously to figure out which are which.

Achievement is a moving target, and conditions are constantly changing. So regularly adjusting your approach is necessary to a successful life.

Even the most skillful captain must make adjustments in the ship's course along the way. An important part of reaching your destination is recognizing when you've strayed off the path and then finding a way to get back on it.

So take a good look at where you're headed, honestly, objectively, and with the intention of making whatever adjustments are necessary. Keep yourself pointed toward the goal, and your actions will surely take you there.

What if you lost your job tomorrow?

Prosperity Cast Network | Web 2.0 | Social Marketing | Mentors In Motion | Val Smyth | Jim Gras | MIM Online Magazine

This update is brought to you by Jim Gras, Val Smyth, MIM Online Magazine and The Prosperity Cast Network

What if you lost your job tomorrow?

Fighting against something is not a very good way to avoid it. For by your efforts to fight it, you give it more power in your life.Seek instead to create a positive alternative. Make the negative situation irrelevant by building an even more powerful positive force.

The best response to hostility and anger is not more hostility and anger. The best response is a new vision and energy that will move everyone to a more valuable and creative place.

Choose to transcend the fight, and then you can make your way forward unhindered and unopposed. Take the energy of the situation and re-direct it toward positive, productive pursuits.

When you feel the urge to fight, whether against another person, a difficult situation, or your own weakness, stop and reconsider. Instead of fighting against, is there something even more compelling that you can work toward?

Almost always, there is. And the moment you choose it, you're already moving quickly ahead.

Persist
 
When you're weary, it means you've been making a difference. Keep going and see it through. When each obstacle is more difficult than the one before, it means you're making real progress. Persist, and make it all count for something great.

The exhaustion you feel is preparing you for the sweet taste of accomplishment that is surely to come. Every effort you make serves to give that accomplishment more value and meaning.

Sure, the way is difficult, and by moving through each difficulty you're creating something that can never be taken away. Keep going, and enjoy the priceless reward of knowing you did it.

As the path become steeper, it means you're nearing the summit. Now is when it's especially important to keep climbing.

Your efforts have already brought you a long, long way. Persist, and enjoy the full rewards of your labor.

 Your Vision
 
Follow that vision You can visualize anything you choose. Your imagination is yours to control as you wish. So make use of that powerful imagination to visualize the best of all possibilities for yourself and your world. You don't need any special resources, you don't need anyone's permission, and you don't even need to be realistic.

Simply go in your imagination to the place where you'd most like to be. Visualize all the details, all the richness, all the feelings of the experience.

Make it real in your mind, and you'll be well on your way to making it happen in your world. Visualize with the entirety of your being, and you set into motion a powerful momentum.

Visualize the most positive and desirable of alternatives. The more richly and intensely you see them, the more attainable they become.

Where there is vision, there is life and growth, accomplishment, fulfillment and joy. Visualize the very best for your world, and allow your life to follow that vision.

Learn From Disappointments

It feels lousy to be disappointed, whether it is by other people, by circumstances, or by your own mistakes. And yet, in each disappointment there is also opportunity.

When a disappointment comes, acknowledge it and feel it for what it is. Then quickly step away from it and take a more objective look.

You'll discover that in the larger context of your life, that disappointment can have positive value. Though one door has been closed to you, many more have just been opened.

From each disappointment you can gain knowledge, motivation, perspective and a more clearly defined purpose. From each disappointment, you can learn much about life and about yourself, much that will help you move on ahead.

When life lets you down, there is value to be found in that disappointment. Quickly get back up and begin to live that value.

When you go forward, you will occasionally stumble. And when you choose to positively recover from those stumbles, you'll move more quickly ahead.

Choice of feelings You create your feelings and you are responsible for them. By controlling those feelings in a positive and purposeful way, you can profoundly change your life for the better.

If you blame another person for your feelings, what you're really doing is giving that person control over an important part of your life. If you avoid taking responsibility for your feelings, those feelings can quickly overwhelm you and leave you powerless.

The way you feel can affect every corner of your life. By taking positive control of your feelings, you put yourself in a powerful and influential position in your world. Keep in mind that every feeling you experience is a feeling you have chosen. Though much of what comes your way is beyond your control, the way you feel about it all is completely up to you.

If your life seems to be stuck, that's a sure sign that you're holding on to feelings that are no longer appropriate. Know that you can let those feelings go and be gloriously free to move quickly ahead.

Feelings are powerful and can bring much richness to life, and the power they have is the power you choose to give them. Choose your feelings wisely, and life will be rich indeed. The purpose of The Prosperity Cast Network is to enhance the serious marketer’s ability to succeed. See how here http://www.prosperitycastnetwork.com

"Why is Article Marketing so darn important in 2008" Part 2

If you want maximum results for your article marketing, you would be best served by adopting the following tactics:

Target the top article directories and go for a few quality links instead of hundreds of low-quality links. In other words, hit the top article directories and devote the rest of your time on the next couple of steps.

Find themed article directories / content sites that are related to the niche that your article addresses. For example, if you write about CSS, you would be looking for directories and websites that accept content on website development and more directly, website programming.

Use articles as link building tools - find high-ranking sites related to yours and instead of simply asking for links, pitch your article to them as an offer to their readers. If your article is engaging, fresh and unique, most websites will gladly publish it on their websites (or at least give you a reference link), leading to increased traffic as well as link popularity. There are a few more things that you can do to make sure you came out ahead of the search engines’ spam filters:

Avoiding Duplicate Content Penalties

Ideally, you shouldn’t publish articles that you submit on your own website – this “may” help you avoid the duplicate content penalty a bit. On the other hand, this does not address the concern that carbon copies of your article will suddenly pop up in hundreds of places on the Internet. To deal with this, you can use one or more of the following techniques:

Post the article on your website, and wait for it to be indexed by the major search engines before you submit it to the article directories. Post the full article on your website and submit “ half ” of it to the article directories (works best if you have a 1000 words+ article). Have your writer create a second, different version of the article. Then, you can submit that version to the directories while keeping the original on your site.

Deep Linking

Instead of just putting links to your main site page, link to a few inner pages of your site from within the article text. Of course, the inner pages must be relevant to the article topic. This will help spread the link popularity you receive throughout the site. Deep links are one of the ways search engines use to evaluate the value of links.

Themed Links

Use different articles for different purposes. For example, you could have one article promoting your main website, another promoting your new book (and linking to the order page), and yet another article linking to your newsletter signup page. The key is to remember that articles also mean traffic, and along with deep links, getting traffic to the key money-making areas of your site is very important.

Find Quality Article Sites

There are very few article directories (like Ezine Articles ) that have a stellar reputation within the search engines. Directories like Go Articles and ISnare are popular precisely because they themselves have managed to rank highly within the search engines.

The top ranked directories will not only get you the most link wealth but also the most traffic. However, don’t be satisfied with just hitting the general purpose article sites – make sure that you find sites within your niche that accept articles exclusively to the topic – if you can get links from within your own topical link neighbourhood, they will be worth much more than the links you get from the big article directories.

Lack of links to get the pages indexed quickly

This is another very common problem, but can be solved extremely easily. In order to get your pages indexed, you simply need links. The more links pointing to your website, the faster you will get indexed, period.

How can you get easy, fast links to your site? Go to LinkMetro.com and either sign up for a free account and manually exchange links with over 20,000 other websites listed in very tightly themed categories OR upgrade to an Advanced membership where you can get links even quicker and easier or contact me to see how you can be included into my Veretekk Platinum Marketing System for SEO Specialist Online

Whatever you decide. Go to LinkMetro.com and start getting links and I can guarantee that your pages will get indexed MUCH quicker than had you not done so.

Well, that wraps up the importance of article marketing for me today. I hope that this has taught you some new strategies for using articles as effective marketing tools for your online business and I will speak with you soon!

Until next Time

7 Marketing Lessons We Can Learn From TV Infomercials

I hate to share this, but I love watching infomercials. And I've ordered more than once from them! Everything from weight loss products to cell phone accessory's.

When pressed, my friends admit the same. If you sniff around most people's homes, you'll find something ordered from an infomercial, whether it's the Ronco Rotisserie or Victoria Principal's skincare.

You may think of these often annoying programs as "trash TV", but think again. Did you realize that they use many of the exact same strategies that we should?

Now, I don't mean you need to scream at your customers or flash "$19.95" in blinking digits on your website! Those are gimmicks.

But what most people don't realize is that many of the strategies that sell the kitchen doohickey gadget are the same ones that can also sell your products and programs.

Here are 7 of my favorites:

1. They grab your attention.

Infomercials air on the most challenging medium there is out there: television. You're just a second away from your prospect clicking their remote to the next channel. So they do their best to get your attention right away and KEEP it for as long as possible.

That's why infomercials give bold statements and emphasize how this doohickey will change your life. You should do this too -- stop beating around the bush and make it clear to your prospects how your products and services will change *their* lives!

2. They give tons of real-life testimonials.

You'll see that TV infomercials have evolved greatly since years ago. It used to be one or two people talking to a camera for the entire time. These days most typical 30 minute spots are over 80% customer testimonials! And that's for good reason... they are the hands-down BEST way to gain instant credibility.

A great example is for one of those home exercise machines. I noticed years ago they just showed the super-ripped guy using it on the infomercial. Now they show that guy, PLUS dozens of before and after testimonials from real-life guys with beer bellies and real jobs who used the product with success. That was a great move on their part, because c'mon, we never really believed that super-ripped guy looked like that from using it just 30 minutes, 3 times a week!

3. They use personalities.

The most successful infomercials now use celebrity guest hosts. They know this gets people's attention more than practically anything out there. Pro Activ uses Jessica Simpson. Youthful Essence (a skincare product women love) uses Susan Lucci. Even NutriSystem is now using Dan Marino in their commercials to target men.

You can do the same in your marketing. You can either hire a star, or even better, make YOURSELF the celebrity... by sharing stories, being personal, and having fun with your market.

4. They give an irresistible offer.

It's rare these days to see an infomercial asking for you to pay for something in full. You'll mostly see things like "3 payments of $19.95" or "4 payments of $39.95". Why? Cash-crunched Americans are always more concerned about cash flow than the total price. They'll even happily pay much MORE in the end in order to gain a lower monthly payment!

You can do the same. Offer a payment plan for your products, courses, workshops, and coaching. You'll be AMAZED at the increased response, and it's easy to do with marketing-savvy shopping cart systems.

5. They give a strong call-to-action NOW.

These folks know that as soon as you change the channel, you're going to forget about their product. So they make it very urgent that you pick up the phone and call them now or visit their website and order. They usually say something like "If you call in the next 10 minutes you also get..." and they list a few great bonuses.

This isn't just specific to TV. Everyone would rather put off ANY decision these days, we're all so busy and overwhelmed! So you need to give people a good REASON to act now, whether it's a discount that expires, a payment plan that expires, a limited number of products or seats, a special bonus... you get the idea.

6. They sell on continuity.

What's "continuity"? It's when you make ONE sale that results in multiple charges over and over. For example, because my Wife Rosie's friends have been raving about I.D. Bare Minerals natural makeup, she recently ordered a kit from their infomercial. Now, every 2 months, she receive a fresh supply in the mail, and my card is charged again. She love's it because she doesn't have to remember to reorder. They love it because they only had to make ONE sale, and how they've got me as a customer forever until I cancel!

Hear me now... continuity will change your life! Consider how you can use this principle in your business. Could you convert some of your current offerings into a monthly membership? Or instead of doing one-shot teleseminars, create an ongoing monthly program? (I did this with my Premium Managed Marketing and SEO Campaign's .)

7. They repeat themselves. And repeat themselves.

And repeat themselves again! Smart marketers know it takes an average of 9 TIMES for someone to see/hear your message BEFORE they will even consider purchasing! That goes for you too. So many of my clients complain that advertising doesn't work when they only ran one ad ONCE. Or published ONE newsletter and it didn't get them results.

Remember it's the ongoing exposure and repetition that breeds familiarity and trust with your prospects! And that leads to more sales than you've ever imagined.

3 Success Principles That Have Reshaped My Business

Over the past 15 years I've immersed myself in learning. Because my business is marketing, I have attended many and spoken at marketing seminars when I was younger. But I also make plenty of time to read books, attend seminars, and listen to audio programs on personal development as well.

Why?

You should actually work harder on yourself than you do on your business (or job). I first learned that from Jim Rohn, whom some call the father of personal development. Some call him America's foremost business philosopher. I just call him brilliant. (Jim was one of Tony Robbins' first mentors, too.)

There are three success principles I've learned over the years that I wanted to share with you. I call them my "a-has" because they put my attention on areas I'd never thought of. And following these guidelines has helped me skyrocket my business.

1. You are the average of the five PEOPLE you hang around the most.

When I first heard this quote from Jim, it struck a big nerve in me. Robert Allen says something similar, that your bank account balance is typically the average of the five people you hang around the most. (Yikes!)

I realized I needed to surround myself with people whom I wanted to be like. I still love my old friends, but I make a specific effort to be around people who take risks, think big, and talk about great ideas instead of the latest celebrity gossip, the price of gas, or how much they hate their clients.

What first opened up my circle of influence was attending seminars. I continually go to seminars on marketing, business, and personal development. There are so many great seminars going on every month all around the country, at all price points. You have no excuse not to get out there and meet people who are playing big!

2. Your HABITS create your future (and your fortune).

I like to talk a lot about this. Your daily habits create your long-term results. Your habits today will determine your outcomes tomorrow. If you want to be a millionaire, you've got to have millionaire habits. If you want to be a great leader, you must have the habits of a great leader. If you want to get in shape, you've got to have the habits of a fit person.

What new habit can YOU put into place right away?

I wanted to put into place a millionaire habit. Because I detest budgets (and enjoy spending), I needed an easy way to save money. So now I have a set percentage of my inflow automatically go into a savings account that I don't touch.

3. Make sure your ENVIRONMENT supports you in playing big.

A few years ago I had the chance to hear a dynamic woman named Artemis Limpert speak. In her talk, she pointed out that when you have a pet fish that's sick, you treat the water -- NOT the fish.

Your success depends more on your environment than you know, but it's extremely important that you give yourself an environment that supports you at the level you want to BE at. (Note that I did NOT say the level you are at now!)

There are 3 areas of your environment you should pay close attention to:

First, your physical environment. Do you love your office? Do you have enough space to work and plan? Are you surrounded by attractive things? Do you have a nice view or at least a beautiful piece of art to look at? I paid a pretty penny for my condo, but I can't tell you how inspiring it is every day to look out at the all the golfers or take a short walk or drive to my peaceful ocean, sailboats, blue sky, and the sand. It fuels me.

But you don't have to spend a lot of money on your environment. Little touches like candles, flowers, music you love, and photos of friends and family can go a long way. (Even if your office is the kitchen table!)

Second, your emotional environment. Are you getting the support you need from your family and friends? It's up to YOU to ask for what you need.

If they cannot provide it, find a Mentor or coach, a mastermind, or a support group. I find it wonderful to have our Fast Track  mastermind group for support. I can bounce ideas off them, ask for help with problem solving, share my victories, and sometimes just vent!

Third, your intellectual environment. Jim Rohn says, "Are you feeding your brain protein every day, or are you just giving it candy?" Most Americans sustain their brains solely on candy - that is, useless television shows, news, and gossip. Are you stimulating yourself with big ideas and new learning? Again, check out a seminar, take a Veretekk class, or buy some books or audio programs. (I love listening to programs on CD or iPod, so I can learn while taking a walk or driving my car or relaxing on a plane.)

REMEMBER, "THE MORE YOU LEARN THE MORE YOU LEARN"

Remember - 97% of the people marketing today are full of excuses and live their lives thru tragedy and self created disappointment!

Don`t let this be YOU! Make it Count!!!!

Procrastination Marketing -- It Actually Works!

I'm guessing that right now there are several marketing tasks you've been putting off. Perhaps it's revamping your website. Or sending out your first e-zine. Or getting listed in the search engines. Or putting together a media kit.

So why haven't you done it?

Believe me, this is a battle I fight with myself too. But you know what I realized?

Procrastination is NOT evil!

Instead of seeing procrastination as a terrible thing, I now see it as a tool that helps me learn how I work best.

In fact, I've arrived at six different reasons why we all seem to procrastinate. Here they are, along with what you can learn from (and do for) each.

Reason 1: You are procrastinating because you don't enjoy the entire task or job.

Solution: One of my Mentors told me several years ago that if I didn't like doing something, I should "delete it, delegate it, or automate it." What a great way to look at things! I'm a big fan of ONLY doing tasks I enjoy or am good at. The rest I outsource to people who are good at it and/or enjoy it.

Reason 2: You are procrastinating because you don't enjoy a PART of the entire task or job.

Solution: If you're putting off a whole project just because there's one part you don't want to do, figure out how you can get away without doing that part. Again, delete it, delegate it, or automate it.

Reason 3: You are procrastinating because you don't know how to handle the task or job.

Solution: The answer will not drop in your lap. Get help -- a Mentor to teach you how, a book or home study course to show you how, or even better, outsource it to someone who can just do it for you.

Reason 4: You are procrastinating because you simply can't find the time.

Solution: Schedule future time to do it, or get rid of other tasks to create the time you need. If you still can't do this, then you need to find someone to do it for you.

Reason 5: You are procrastinating because you feel stuck.

Solution: You may just need to get momentum going. Give yourself permission to do just one small part of the project only. Or do the easiest part first. (That's how I started putting together my entire Mentoring course.) This usually creates momentum, and you end up doing a lot more than you intended to!

Reason 6: You are procrastinating because you don't really want to do what you thought you should do.

Solution: This means you may have the wrong objective or strategy in the first place! Is this something you really want to do, or do you just think you SHOULD do it? Or is it an old goal that doesn't fit you or your business anymore? Your answer may surprise you. Let the goal go for awhile and see what happens. : )

Start Paying Attention!

Once you start paying attention to which activities you put off regularly, you'll know sooner when to be stricter with yourself or find help to get those tasks accomplished in a more timely manner.

So take a minute and make your list right now of what marketing tasks you've been putting off! Don't beat yourself up about it, just make a note and figure out how to get them done. (Or delete them and find an alternative to help you reach the same goal.)

Remember - 97% of the people marketing today are full of excuses and live their lives thru tragedy and self created disappointment!

Don`t let this be YOU.  Make it Count.

19.  You like chasing prospects, and never getting a decision.
 
18.  You are already rich and don't need to make any money in this industry.
 
17.  You are happy with the status quo and don't want to upset the apple cart.
 
16.  You are trying to win the award for the world's smallest downline.
 
15.  You've never tried the Old Fashioned recruiting techniques the Top Trainers teach, so you don't know that they don't work.
 
14.  You've never made a recruiting call, and never plan to, so it doesn't matter.
 
13. If you make any more money, you will lose your unemployment benefits.
 
12.  If you become super-successful, your friends will shun you.
 
11.  You got into this business as a hobby, and are not looking to make a profit.
 
10.  Your upline never told you what to do once you sponsored a new distributor.
 
9.  When you signed up, your sponsor told you there was no work involved, and you believed him.
 
8.  You're working with a 15 year old computer, and it would take 4 hours for the shopping cart to load.
 
7.  You just found out that you might have to physically talk to someone to be successful in the business (you must have missed the fine print).

2.  You are going to go back and pitch your friends and family. They have only heard the sales pitch 10 times. Maybe the 11th time is the charm.
 
And the Number 1 reason You Should Not Use a Marketing System "You believe that recruiting is a numbers game, and if you have to make 5,000 cold calls to get one sponsored, you are committed to doing it".

Top Ten Reasons To Work For Yourself

1) Be there for your family. This is frequently the number one reason for starting a business. Being there for your children, your spouse, or your aging parents... it's so important.

2) Make yourself wealthy. Why would you continue to work on making someone else wealthy when you can use all that hard work toward your own future?

3) Choose your own hours. Work when you want, where you want, for as long as you want. It doesn't get any better than this!

4) Write your own paychecks. You don't ever have to ask for a raise. You work for it. If you need more lncome, you know exactly what you need to do to get it.

5) Tax Benefits. You'll save thousands in lncome taxes when you know what you can deduct as business expenses. Check with your accountant!

6) No Commute. Actually, you will have a commute - from your bedroom to your home office (which may even be in your bedroom!). The average working American wastes hours per day sitting in traffic on the way to and from work. No more!

7) Live where you want! You no longer have to worry about being close to your employer. City, suburbs, or mountain home ... it's up to you.

8) Eliminate your overhead. You don't need to rent a big fancy office and furnish it with expensive equipment. It's called your house! A spare room or just some space in an existing room will do.

9) Vacation days whenever you need them! Need a day off? You won't have to "call in" to anyone but yourself. Talk about flexibility!

10) You are the best BOSS you've ever worked for. It shouldn't be any other way!

Are you ready to work for yourself?

7 Wise Ways to Collect Email Addresses

It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!

Let's talk some more about: Essential Rules for Effective Email Marketing

In today`s newsletter, you`re going to learn 7 Wise Ways to Collect Email Addresses and Build Your Mailing List

Have you been enjoying your journey to email marketing success? Better still, have you moved into the fast lane and started to put some of what you`ve learned into action?
 
If the answer is "yes" -- congratulations. The tips offered in the first two lessons of this course are the building blocks for what comes next. They don`t require any cash, just a little time, and believe me, you`ll get back much more than you give or expect.
 
Okay, enough motivation and inspiration. Let`s get down to business...the business of today`s lesson. We`re hunting big game -- you`re going to learn HOW TO CAPTURE EMAILS.
 
If you`re wondering why you need emails, there`s a key point to remember: your whole objective must be to BUILD A LARGE EMAIL LIST of prospects and customers. Once you have an email list, you can begin to make SERIOUS MONEY
 
So how do you capture email addresses? I`m glad you asked. The answers follow.

=====================================================
7 Wise Ways to Collect Email Addresses and Build Your
Mailing List
=====================================================

 
=> Wise Way #1 - OFFER A FREEBIE
 
You have to give in order to get. If you want people to offer up their email address, you`re going to have to offer up an incentive. Nothing works better than something that`s complimentary (you spell that F-R-E-E). You can give away no-cost reports, books, software, or even sample pages of a book.
 
Example:
FREE REPORT - Anyone Can Be a Millionaire. . . . . .
"If They just Use Their Head" Visit Here
 
=> Wise Way #2 - USE POP-UPS
 
Pop-ups are one of the most common methods you can use to capture email addresses and build your email list quickly and with ease. Simply construct a web page or blog containing code for a form and set the page to open (pop up) when visitors ENTER OR EXIT your site.
 
Make sure the pop-up offer is something that`s valuable enough to motivate visitors to take time to give you their contact information. Your offer can be a complimentary report, download, or e-book that arrives instantly through your autoresponder to their email inbox when they give you their email.
 
-Word to the Wise: If you need a pop-up, you can pick one up F-R-E-E from
http://tooaddsun.veremail.com/ or I have software that enables you to create your own.
 
-Son of Word to the Wise: "Instant" is a very powerful pop-up offer.
 
=> Wise Way #3 - USE POSTCARDS
 
If you have a mailing list that contains snail mail (street) addresses, convert it into an email list by sending out a postcard and inviting people to VISIT YOUR WEBSITE to receive a gift of some kind -- a report, a discount coupon, etc. Visitors don`t have to pay in order to receive their gifts, they simply need to enter an email address.
 
-A Word to the Wise from the U.S. Post Office: Postage is much less expensive for a postcard than a standard-size letter. (Not only are they economical, postcards are more likely to get your message across since the consumer doesn`t have to open an envelope.)
 
=> Wise Way #4 - SUBSCRIBER BOX ON EVERY PAGE
 
This is a clever trick that so many people overlook. Put a RESPONSE FORM ON EVERY PAGE of your website offering a newsletter or other freebie. This will increase the number of  email addresses you capture exponentially
.
Why? When search engines index the pages of your website, a visitor may come directly to a page other than your home page. If you only have a subscriber box on your home page, you`re missing the boat, not to mention the thousands of visitors who bypass your homepage.
 
=> Wise Way #5 - CONTESTS
 
Contests very often prove to be a good way to generate traffic and buzz for your business. Create a contest and put a form on your site or in a pop-up box. The entry "fee" is their email address.
 
-Word to the Wise: Not all the people who sign up for your contest are good prospects. Many are just contest "junkies" -- people who are only looking for freebies and have no intention of buying a product or service.
 
-Warning to the Wise: If your prizes are cash or large-ticket items, you should be sure to check with local agencies to make sure you`re not violating any contest laws.
 
=> Wise Way #6 - DISPLAY YOUR AUTORESPONDER ADDRESS
 
Most people give their website link when they place solo ads, ezine ads, or other marketing messages. To be one step ahead of the game in collecting email addresses, LIST YOUR AUTORESPONDER ADDRESS instead of your URL. This way you can capture email address and funnel them into your follow-up sales letters.
 
=> Wise Way #7 - JUST ASK
 
If you`re chatting with a prospect on the phone or a potential customer stops by your place of business, don`t be shy: ask for an email address or business card (which usually includes their email address).
 
Okay, you know what you want...you know what you need. It`s time for you to set your traps and CAPTURE THOSE EMAILS! In the meantime, I`ll be putting the finishing touches on the next lesson.

Remember - 97% of the people marketing today are full of excuses and live their lives thru tragedy and self created disappointment!

Don`t let this be YOU!

Make it Count!!!!

I'll see YOU at the top,

Email Aesthetics

It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!

Let's talk some more about: Essential Rules for Effective Email Marketing

In today`s newsletter, you`re going to learn Email Aesthetics

In today`s newsletter, you`re going to learn how the APPEARANCE of your email message affects the way your prospects feel about you and what you have to offer.

==================
EMAIL AESTHETICS
==================

It`s an old, old saying, but it`s true: you only have one chance to make a good first impression. And in email, the first impression is always visual -- a consumer LOOKS/SEES before he/she READS.

Imagine walking by a grotesquely garish storefront with all kinds of things hanging off the front porch, every floor painted a different color, and odd music playing through loudspeakers. Would you want to walk in the front door? No way! You`d assume that the owner is a kook, at best, or a deranged axe murderer, at worst.

Did you ever have an ugly looking email land in your mailbox? You know what I`m talking about: an orange background and yellow borders, multi-colored text in all sizes from gigantic to microscopic, a message that looks like it was created by a crazed six-year-old? If you did, I bet you didn`t feel the urge to read it. You probably just wanted to delete it as quickly as possible.

=> PUT OUT THE WELCOME MAT

You want your email message to be friendly and inviting, not bizarre and scary. The suggestions below -- and they`re just suggestions, not hard and fast rules -- will go a long way towards making recipients` eyes say "come on in!" to your message.

=> DO`s and DON`Ts FOR ATTRACTIVE EMAILS

-DON`T use COLOR fonts in your message. (Leave that to junior high girls who want to write about Britney and Justin)

-DO use BLACK TEXT ON A WHITE BACKGROUND. (When  you`re "speaking" in black-and-white, people will give their full attention to your message without being distracted by your color scheme.)

-DON`T use UNCOMMON FONTS. (If someone`s system doesn`t recognize the font you`ve selected, they could see gibberish
instead of your brilliant message).

-DO use the email marketers` FAVORITE FONTS: Arial, Times New Roman, and Courier New

And please.

-DON`T use flashing buttons or banners in your email! (Your prospects have undoubtedly gotten their fill of "bells and whistles" when they`ve surfed the Internet. They don`t need more from you.)

=> GET HYPER" WITH EMAIL HYPERLINKS

An "email hyperlink" is just techno-talk for a link in your email to a website, or email address. Sounds simple enough, and it is -- unless you try to contact a prospect on AOL who may not be able to receive "clickable" links.

Don`t worry. There`s a "Fix" for this: simply type mailto: in front of your email address (no space in between, and include the : )

For a link to a web page, you need to write your link this way: < a href=http://www.leadgeneration.24ex.com/ >
http://www.leadgeneration.24ex.com/ </a>. .

(And tell your recipient they can copy and paste this link into their browser if it`s not highlighted.)

=> ALWAYS USE SIGNATURE TAGS

Today, it`s common practice on the Internet to tell people about your product or service with a SIGNATURE TAG, which is 3-6 lines of text (usually) that is automatically added to every message you send.

If you`d like to add a tag to your messages, simply open your email program. Find the SIGNATURES TAB (located in the TOOLS/OPTIONS menu in Outlook Express). Follow the (simple) instructions for creating a sig file. Easy as pie...and the results
will amaze you.

That`s it for now, but get your "net" ready. Next lesson we`re going to hunt down and CAPTURE EMAILS.

I'll see YOU at the top,

Essential Rules for Effective Email Marketing

It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!

Let's talk about: Essential Rules for Effective Email Marketing

In today`s newsletter, you`re going to learn THE BASICS OF EMAIL MARKETING.

Now I know what you`re thinking: Basics don`t sound very exciting or "empowering." But the basics are the foundation upon which everything else is built. Miss these and you may end up spinning your wheels for the next 12 months.

(Wouldn`t you rather be spinning stories about how you made your first million?)

So find a comfortable spot, put up your feet and let`s get ready to rumble!

Essential Rules For Effective Email Marketing

If you want an email campaign to succeed, you don`t want to offend anyone when sending your messages. Turn off a consumer with your email and you can be sure they`ll tune out your message. Don`t let this happen to you!

A message that earns respect makes sales. That`s why our first topic for discussion is email etiquette. (Later in the course, we`ll talk more about how to write an email sales letter.)

Train yourself to always -- and I mean ALWAYS -- stick to the rules below when crafting your email message.

=> RULE #1 - ALWAYS WRAP YOUR LINES AT 65 CHARACTERS OR LESS

Whenever you write an email, always format the lines so that they`re 65 characters, or less, across. To do this, you may need to do a "hard return" by hitting "Enter" at the end of the line.

Wondering why to limit your lines to just 65 characters?

(Good question! It shows you`re thinking.) There are two reasons that "less is more"

-- The first thing to remember is that looking at a computer screen for a long time causes EYE FATIGUE for many readers.

The shorter span of characters across the screen makes reading easier and more appealing to the recipient of your email message.

-- The other reason to go short instead of long is this: some email clients AUTOMATICALLY ENFORCE LINE-WRAPPING at 60-65 characters on received messages. If your email is wrapped at 70, the content will arrive all "chopped up."

This makes it unattractive...and worse -- unappealing.

-- Tip within a Rule #1: Email clients such as Outlook Express allow you to SET THE LINE-WRAP to any character-width you choose. That means you won`t have to hit enter each time after typing 65 characters. Makes life easier!

-- Tip within a Rule #2 - You can type 65 asterisks or dashes in a Notepad file to create a template. Then paste your email below it to see if any lines extend too far to the right.

=> RULE # 2 - BE CAREFUL USING ALL CAPS

How many times have you changed the TV channel to avoid listening to a screaming car salesperson? No one likes a screaming salesperson...and no one likes a "screaming" email message, either. Odds are, when someone has over-amped the volume of their message by using too many capital letters (not to mention too many exclamation points and other punctuation) - you`re going to be turned off.

On the Internet, email messages written in all caps are considered yelling. It`s okay to write some sentences and some words in all caps, but don`t go overboard. (As you can see in this message, I`ve tried to use capital letters to help break up sections of the content from time to time)

-- Tip within a Rule: Consumers buy from a source they trust. Emails in all caps are perceived as "shady" or uneducated, and have an appearance that damages the credibility of an offer.

=> RULE #3 - WATCH YOUR Ps & Qs (Spelling and Grammar) Would you be influenced by an email selling you something that had noticeable spelling and grammar mistakes? Sure you would...and the influence would be negative, not positive!

When a consumer reads a sales message that`s filled with errors, they think to themselves, "Good grief, this person doesn`t even take the time to get his emails right. His product is probably the same quality as his emails."

When you`re in business, YOUR IMAGE IS YOUR REPUTATION and your reputation is the reason people buy from you or the guy down the block. It`s essential that you create an image of INTEGRITY, CREDIBILITY, and HONESTY in the mind of your prospects. Sending emails filled with errors doesn`t hurt your professional image...it destroys it. (Ouch!)

That`s it for now, but I`ll be back with the next Lesson faster than you can say, "I want to be EMPOWERED"

Until next time,

FACT: A consistent high quality lead generation program is a MUST.

Hello Jim Gras here, Welcome back to my Retire Today Online Home Business Newsletter

Each issue you will receive business information, articles and quick tips you can use to build your home business.

In this issue, Imagine planning on going a big party or special event where nobody shows up. You’ve worked your tail off getting everything ready, you’re all dressed up, the buffet is laid out to perfection…and the room is empty.

Maybe the guests took a wrong turn along the way, maybe they took one look at your house and drove on by, or maybe they never got the invitation in the first place.

No matter…you’re left sitting alone, and that’s a pretty depressing picture to say the least.

And this is exactly what can happen if you get your website “all dressed up” without the foundation of a full spectrum marketing plan in place. Nobody shows. Because no matter what the home biz “pimps” tell you, there is one “absolute” you must be aware of…

********************************************************
FACT: A consistent high quality lead
generation
program is a MUST.
********************************************************

So where are in the world-wide-web are you supposed to get a steady stream of leads? Will you attract them by “Sharing?” Hardly.

Face it, if you think the “smile and dial” school of marketing will generate enough business to keep you in profit mode for years to come…you’d better have the endurance of an Olympic athlete, the patience of a saint, and the iron will of a Navy Seal.

A good long distance plan wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

This leads us to a very serious problem that destroys businesses right and left…

*******************************************************************
BIG MYTH: You Don’t Need To Worry About All
That Complicated Marketing Stuff To Be Successful
*******************************************************************

What a crock! Yes you do!

It’s absolutely correct to say there are tons of people out there looking for exactly what you’re offering. But if you are not armed with a fully equipped arsenal of heavy duty marketing artillery, you will be defeated by your home business, pure and simple.

Forget old-school marketing (please don’t even think about Yellow Page ads!) and instead, focus on cutting edge marketing techniques of the 21st century.

What you must have is a state-of-the art, powerful, but simple to implement way to generate quality leads.

When you have this, there’s no need to worry, especially if you have a muscular system in place doing all the heavy lifting for you. In other words, it needs to be a system you can easily implement…without spending the next 4 years trying to learn everything yourself (or sinking piles of money into the process).

The problem is, there hasn’t been ANYTHING that even remotely resembles this kind of automated marketing system that works 24/7, generating high quality leads FOR you…

Instead of worrying, you can get excited, because we have a solution to bring you out of the dark ages in record time. You can learn more about it right here.

As a starting point, let’s do a quick checklist of  three key points you’ll need for running a successful marketing campaign:

1. A website that brands you, not someone’s “poster child.” A Branding page helps prove you’re a REAL person, establishes your credibility and is a powerful way to share your journey and achievements.

2. A product prospects want, not something you want to sell. When you have a hot, in-demand item, customers will track you down (IF you have the rest of your marketing puzzle solved). You won’t have to go chasing all over for them. Isn’t that a refreshing idea?

3. A constant stream of qualified traffic. Without it you’re out of business. It’s very competitive out there on the Internet. Who-finds-who first is critical. But remember, don’t chase: Instead attract. The right kind of marketing system is a powerful magnet to pinpoint your perfect lead!

This is just the tip of the iceberg, the small 10% at the very top. You’ll find the rest of the whole truth right here, Get on "The Fast Track". http://whoisjimgras.com/mymarketing.html

So, stop treading water, getting nowhere fast. Keep doing that and eventually, you’re going to sink.

Instead, build your business by guiding the right kind of high quality leads to your branded website, connect with them for a high value product they already want, and do it all incredibly easily and effectively.

Start today! Do this ONE thing--and you won’t be sitting at the party all by yourself ever again.

Remember - 97% of the people marketing today are full of excuses and live their lives thru tragedy and self created disappointment! Don`t let this be YOU!

Make it Count!!!!

To your massive success,

There are few sellers in the land of dreams

It’s Jim Gras here, from "Retire Today Online" Home Business Weekly Newsletter.

Every so often I will send you a Home Business Quick Tip to help you, build your home business.

Have You Lost money in YOUR online business?

There are people who start businesses on the Internet and then do absolutely nothing. And I mean, they don't even monitor their site for opportunity nor do they communicate with others to create opportunity.

This is a lot like whispering down a well about your business.

The only thing that's visible is your rear-end and no one can hear you!

Don't let this happen to you...

Having a business on the Internet is just like having a business anywhere else. The same principles apply. Most important of all are generating leads and turning leads into customers.

To be successful you must get leads and turn some of these leads into customers.

What happens when you get a whole lot of people in your business chasing a dream? If you haven't already guessed or been through the experience, let me tell you...

You get a whole lot of people in your business dreaming!

If there is one concept about Network Marketing that I want you to take away with you it's this...

"There are few sellers in the land of dreams."

So get ready!

You're about to get a lesson in business like never before!

BIG MYTH: All You Need Is A Good Home Business And You’ll Make Money Fast

It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!

FACT: 9 out of 10 Home Business Entrepreneurs Fail
 
With this sobering fact staring you in the face, it’s not exactly time to quit your J-o-b.
 
But it just about drives me nuts because so many good people like you have no idea this is how it is. Yes, you really can make it (I did and so can you!). But first we have to cut through the garbage and get to the land of reality.
 
I’d kind of like to punch somebody’s lights out for this one…
 
******************************************************
BIG MYTH: All You Need Is A Good Home
Business And You’ll Make Money Fast
******************************************************

Oh perfect, your problems are solved.
 
Unless you’re into self-torture, do not fall for this!
 
If it were that easy, folks would be lined up for miles, just trying to climb on board the money train. Offices would sit empty, commuter trains would grind to a halt, and Parris Hilton would look like a poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks.
 
Get this firmly planted in your brain…
 
******************************
It’s NEVER that easy!
******************************
 
Don’t get me wrong--
 
If you have a smart, start-of-the-art Marketing System in place, you can blast right past failure without batting an eye or breaking a sweat.
 
But you need to be willing to put in a reasonable amount of effort,  be present in your business, AND you need to have a full spectrum, systematic marketing machine that makes everything run like clockwork for you.
 
Then, and only then, can you make a smashing success of the right home business or network.
 
But how will you know if the one you’ve set your sites on is good or not?
 
What criteria are you going to use to make this all-important decision when the unvarnished truth is getting on "The Fast Track"
 
**There’s no censorship by any regulatory agency on the Internet – less than ethical marketers can (and do) say what they want—without worry.
 
If they eventually get dinged for their lies with sanctions that can run in the millions of dollars, it’s barely a bump in the road--that’s chump change to them. Just like the old Timex ads, they “take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’”.
 
**The guru’s lie to you – and truly don’t care. Your start-up money is happily lining their pockets and they’re smiling all the way to the bank.
 
Good for them--sucks for you.
 
**Unless you do something drastically different, the odds are completely stacked against you – a staggering 95% of home businesses never break even AND out of the surviving 5%, only a tiny 3% of THOSE will ever make any profit.
 
And that’s just part of the gloom and doom reality.
 
************************************************************
But here’s another more encouraging fact…
************************************************************
 
The truth is, if you have a proven product that people want AND a multi-faceted marketing system behind it you’re going to succeed! Maybe even beyond your wildest dreams.
 
It all comes down to something so basic--so absolutely essential--it’s been fueling successful businesses for years.
 
Can you guess what it is?
 
Proven sales and marketing strategies that are built into your business. Glued together like love and marriage, pretzels and beer, and money in the bank.
 
I'm not kidding. The lack of this one element alone has brought down 95% of all home businesses. And the crackerjack “bigwigs” trying to get you fumbling along with them can’t even answer this one important question …
 
“How will you support me with an effective marketing plan?”
 
And why do you suppose that is?
 
Because they’re happily playing “follow the leader,” parroting what they’ve been told by the “High Rollers.” Never thinking beyond finding the next willing recruit, and frankly--not having a clue about how to help you succeed long-term in your business.
 
In other words they don’t have an easy to use, step-by-step marketing system in place that provides EVERYTHING you need to make your home business the fast track to success you’ve dreamed of.
 
***********************
The TRUTH is…
***********************
 
They can’t give you what they don’t have.
 
They can’t teach you what they don’t know.
 
And they can’t provide you with the power tools you need to build a strong foundation under your business, if all they have is a rusty old hammer and some bent nails.
 
Listen, if you don’t do one other thing, do this…you need to learn the truth about what it takes to grow a successful home business before you waste one more minute (or one more dollar) on big promises based on a load of hot air.
 
For less than you probably spend a month on fancy coffee drinks, magazines, or a cheese pizza, you’ll discover exactly what destroys 95% of all home businesses…and assure YOU are one of the 3% who make it.
 
Yes, you CAN beat the odds--but only if you’re armed with the truth and get on "The Fast Track" and learn to bring Prosperity into your life
 
To your massive success,

Take care, and we'll see you next week!

If You Just Think Positively, You Will Succeed. NOT!

Hello Jim Gras here, Welcome back to my Retire Today Online Home Business Newsletter
 
Each issue you will receive business information, articles and quick tips you can use to build your home business.
 
In this issue let's talk a little about.... are you on the wrong track?
 
FACT: It takes much more than thinking positively to build Your Business.
 
Remember that kid book, “The Little Engine That Could”? I think I can, I think I can. Yes, definitely a great concept--full of heart, hope, and brimming with positive intentions.
 
And yes, we absolutely agree this is a very important part of your business model.
 
No one is denying positive thinking, an upbeat attitude, and success mindset are important. But they aren’t the ONLY component building your business.
 
So if you’re huffing and puffing down the wrong track, trying to “think” your way to success, you’re in for a painful derailment soon (or maybe it’s already happened!)
 
This leads us to…
 
**********************************************************************
 Myth: If You Just Think Positively, You Will Succeed!
**********************************************************************
 
Is this not the MOST annoying and brainless statement you’ve ever heard, especially if you haven’t a clue how to launch your business into orbit?
 
The idea that positive thinking will solve ALL your business problems has to be one of the most damaging “messing with your brain” lies yet.
 
Get this: the reason this lie is so powerful is because they can always get away with it!
 
It’s the perfect scapegoat. As long as you believe in this flimflam they don’t have to know what they’re talking about, or give you any real concrete answers. How’s that for brilliant?
 
That’s why uplines, downlines, and crosslines use this stopgap.
 
Because the truth is, they haven’t a clue why most people in their business aren’t making it.
 
Millions have been given this magnificent “half-truth” bit of knowledge and really haven’t seen much of a change.
 
So what are you supposed to do?
 
**Risk life and limb driving everywhere with earphones stuck in your head, packing your brain with the content of every motivational CD you can get your hands on. If it doesn’t put you to sleep or distract you into a fender-bender, maybe you’ll even retain a morsel or two of it.
 
**Decorate your home with fluorescent post-it notes stuck on everything from the living room lamps to your bathroom mirror, scribbled with motivational quotes and “verging on desperate” declarations of your goals to “motivate” you. Your family may be confused, but hey…maybe
it’ll work.
 
**Attend every rah-rah session within 100 miles of your home and spend enormous amounts on gas and hotel bills – this will have you pumped uplike the Goodyear Blimp and raring to go for the next week…at least until you get to the parking lot.
 
Hold on a just a stinkin’ minute!
 
Does this make any sense? Is this one thing going to get your business on the right track for success?
 
Of course not!
 
Listen, we are ALL for the power of your mind helping fuel your success.
 
It’s hugely important, and the lack of the right mindset can definitely keep you from achieving your full potential.
 
But it must be joined with ACTION! The unrelenting application of repeatable, sustainable, and effective action is key.
 
The truth is, if you’re building a profitable and lasting business, you’re going to need a full-fledged, muscular marketing system as your     foundation. That’s the only way you’ll see the results you’re looking for.
 
They may trickle in at first, but soon you’ll have a flowing river.
 
And when this occurs, you’ll find plenty to be positive about! Keeping your mindset dialed up to prosperity and abundance will become second nature.
 
So far, we’ve raised the curtain to show you the “wizard” behind the first five lies. But these brief reports are only a small piece of the puzzle. To truly achieve the level of success you’re looking for in your business, you MUST have ALL of the truth, get on "The Fast Track" It’s  waiting for you.

This Thing Sells Itself!

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back with your Retire Today Online weekly home business newsletter!

How are you?  I'm doing well here.  OK, so you’re all set and ready to roll.

You’ve researched the wonderful world of network marketing and Home Business, and you’re super excited, because your sponsor (and a bunch of websites that all look exactly the same) have assured you this is a slam dunk.

You can’t wait, because all you have to do is…well…what exactly?

In other words, you have just been given a first class one-way ticket to…

*************************************************
Another myth: This Thing Sells Itself!
*************************************************

And you don’t need to do ANYTHING more than present it on a Silver Platter.

Frankly, this could very well be on of the dirtiest little lies in the entire industry.

Reality Check: Nothing sells itself. You can have the most incredible, cream of the crop product on the market, but unless you’re using a full-on marketing system to get your message out there, no one will know about it.

Case in point: Remember the recent hysteria about the launch of the iPhone?

Apple is about as smart and savvy as it gets. But they certainly didn’t depend on throwing some iPhones out on a table and waiting for the world to figure it all out.

They launched a virtual blizzard of marketing strategies, specifically designed and implemented to get their crowd worked into a “camping out for days in advance” FRENZY to get their mitts on an iPhone.

Nothing accidental about it--nothing left to chance. Super gorgeous, fun and innovative product, that most definitely and absolutely did NOT sell itself.

So consider this…do you seriously think ANY product you have will magically draw a feverish herd of buyers?

That’s just silly.

Yet somewhere along the line, the thinking that simply buying into a product was enough to make you successful has latched onto the collective minds of network marketers.

*******************************
How Did This Happen?
*******************************

It’s like this…

Just over 60 years ago Network Marketing was introduced to the world and things haven’t been the same since.

Folks with “employee” mentalities, and absolutely no business experience, were suddenly in business, literally overnight sometimes.

One day they were a teacher, mechanic, or secretary, the next day, an Entrepreneur.

These clueless souls were told they’d be making more money than their boss, their parents, their doctor--more money than they’d ever seen in their lives! And, the really “magical” part was, they didn’t have to do anything but “show their friends and families, because this THING (whatever it was) would sell itself!”

And maybe that even worked for a few times, or a few months…but eventually (as you may have already discovered) things fizzle out.

There is no foundation, no LEGS, under this kind of approach to building a business. Pretty soon, you’re on the scrap heap of failure, thinking you just weren’t cut out to be in business for yourself.

It’s the same B.S. today as it was then.

The “follow me clones” rinse and repeat this stuff, because that’s what they were told so it has to be true. And on it goes, creating a kind of historical subculture and twisted expectation about how this all should work.

The upline tells the downline.  The downline tells their prospects. Their prospects tell their friends. Everyone is excited about how much money they’re going to make, with very little effort and absolutely NO understanding of how marketing works in the real world.

It snowballs--taking on a life of it’s own and growing bigger every day.

And the next thing you know this “snowball” becomes an avalanche of disappointment that has you running for your life, trying to keep your hopes and dreams from being buried alive.

******************************
Now for the GOOD news…
******************************

It doesn’t have to be this way! Together, we can change how home business is being conducted, and truly transform the lousy statistics (which were based on decades of the old “business as usual”mentality) forever.

Since you’re here right now, it’s likely you’re still looking for a sustainable and profitable Internet business based on a REAL foundation for sustainable, reliable, longevity and profitability.

Yep, life will be good when that happens!

And NOW it’s entirely doable and surprisingly easy to accomplish.

But, it’s only easy if you know The truth and are on The Fast Track!

Because finally, there’s a breakthrough approach to seamlessly fill the gaps in building a profitable home business, not just for a month or a year…but for as long as you’d like to be in business.

We promise you this: it doesn’t have to be the all too familiar dead-end road anymore.

If you’re ready to welcome success into your life, and feel absolutely fantastic about yourself, your income, and your future, you’re in exactly the right place at exactly the right moment.

We urge you to test us for yourself. First, get your hands on this: http://www.whoisjimgras.com/mymarketing.html

Is starting a home business is cheap?

It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!

I received and email recently with this question: Jim they say Starting a home business is cheap! All you need is a computer. Is This True?

All you need is love? Oh wait, that's a song...

Hey, remember the Beatles song? “All You Need Is Love”…la-ta-da-da-da”

Nice song, nice message, but unfortunately, not that simple in real life, or in real business

FACT: A robust and sustainable business takes a whole lot more to run than what you’ve probably been led to believe.

Look, unless you just fell off the turnip truck, this is so basic it’s ridiculous:

Any business takes money to operate, right?

Right.

So why-o-why, does this lie live on?

***********************************************
Starting a home business is cheap!
All you need is a computer.
***********************************************
Oh really?

These less than ethical tactics fool people into thinking it doesn’t cost much, if anything, to have an Internet business.

The truth is, at a minimum, you’re going to need…

A home computer – yes, they got that part right!

But don’t ignore…

**Marketing Website and design
**Copy (the words on your website)
**Advertising
**Additional Software and Hardware
**A Quality Product

And the list goes on and on.

Let’s get real here…

Yes, of course you need a computer, but as you can see, you also need a lot more.

If anyone has the nerve to keep singing you some pretty little “love” song of “you can start this from your kitchen with nothing more than your laptop”, run far, and run fast. They’re flat-out lying to you.

Even if you cut it down to the bare necessity of a computer, there’s nothing “cheap” about starting a home business, at least not if you want to compete with tantalizing success stories that sold you into the business in the first place.

And what if you don’t have a computer or yours is so outdated it should really be used as a boat anchor? Just starting here, with an up-to-date computer, you’re looking at $650 - $4,000.

Believing you can start a real business on a wish and a prayer is pretty much living in a fantasy world.

And if you’re here right now, it’s because you are seriously interested in building a REAL business on a lasting foundation.

And guess what?

Now, for the first time, there’s a way to do it that maximizes your investment in such a hugely effective way, you’ll have all the potential to turn every dollar you put into your business into much, much more.

It is entirely achievable and surprisingly affordable too!

But remember, it’s only easy (and profitable!) if you know the truth and you can swim through all the lies.

If you’re ready to grab onto controlling our own destiny now, instead of wasting more time wandering down dead-end roads, this is your ticket to freedom—you MUST start here with all the facts.

It’s easy for anyone to make money on the Internet - NOT!

Hello Jim Gras here, Welcome back to your Retire Today Online Home Business Newsletter

Each issue you will receive business information, articles and quick tips you can use to build your home business.

In this issue let's talk a little about.... The Lies of the Home Business Industry!

If you’re filled with self-doubt because you’re seeing your business dreams disappear through the smoke and mirrors the “marketing guru’s” have shown you, you’re not alone.

Maybe this sounds familiar...

You’ve asked for help and instead have gotten knee-jerk answers like,

“Everyone wants this!”

“Each NO means you’re closer to a yes!" Or

“You’re just not TRYING hard enough!”

Frankly, that’s a load of B.S. spouted by people who either don’t really understand marketing, or are out and out lying to you. So right off the bat you need to get this through your head...

FACT: Practically everything you’ve learned about how easy it is to build a successful home business is LIES!

But as with most lies, it is tinged with just enough truth to be believable.

We’re going on a journey together to expose the most rampant myths, half-truths, and downright lies bombarding you from this industry.

It might make you smoking mad sometimes. But if you truly want to be successful, it’s time for the truth.

It’s easy for anyone to make money on the Internet. FACT: Actually, this one is half true.

Right now, you might not understand what’s missing, but you know there’s some invisible wall stopping you from making any money on the Internet.  YES, there’s something missing.

And the most successful folks in this industry are NOT telling you what it is.

The thing is, if you don’t have these crucial elements you might as well throw your hand up in the air, wave it madly and say, “I want to fail, pick me!”

Yes, making money on the Internet is completely doable. But you need a full-proof marketing plan to do it. Not half the story.

So here’s the first step towards the truth. It sounds so incredibly simple! It’s absolutely basic to marketing success, but when you stop and think about it, if you’re just getting started, it can stop you before you begin.

Here it is...

Everyone comes to the plate with different skill sets. In order to level out the playing field, your website must have YOU standing out in front of the crowd.

However, all the bells and whistles won’t do a thing for your website unless you have...

1.  A product people want. It’s a waste of time trying to convince someone they “need” your product. So don’t, just offer them something they want!

2.  A constant stream of traffic. Without it, you’re out of business. Look, the Internet is a very competitive arena. Who-finds-who first is extremely important. Don’t chase your prospects. Let them find you!

Wouldn’t it be nice not to worry about spinning your wheels trying to convince people they “want” your product? Or how about easily attracting the RIGHT kind of potential customers instead of chasing after folks who aren’t even interested in the first place?

Especially when it can be SO much easier and effective!

The Veretekk Marketing System is a Perfect place to start. It's a product people want and need and it's totally generic. Every online business needs marketing results and YOU can take them by the hand and show them what your doing to make your business successful for yourself, and teach them how to use this same system., and make $$$ too.

If finally finding your way to a truly sustainable business sounds appealing to you and you want to learn the whole truth about effectively creating a reliable profit stream, don’t waste another minute.

Go to the Live Trainings and Learn the True "Art & Science" of Building ANY Home Based Business Opportunity!

That's it for today, we will be back soon withe the next issue of your Retire Today Online Home Business Newsletter

Yahoo plans record layoffs ~ Firing 700 could result in $100 million savings

The Prosperity Cast Network
 
Lehigh Acres - After seven months as chief executive, Yahoo Inc. co-founder Jerry Yang has concluded hundreds of employees will have to be fired to help the slumping Internet icon recover from years of misguided management reported today by Jim Gras.
 
Gras a Distributor of The Prosperity Cast Network Online and Trainer for Veretekk marketing a leading online marketing company states unfortunately headlines like this happen all to often. Just recently IBM announced pension freezes which has a ripple effect.
 
Economist predicts 2010 will bring recovery. 2010???? What is a person to do until then? A home based business may be the answer says Val Smith founder of the Prosperity Cast Network and the original Renegade Marketer.
 
The Prosperity Cast Network is a break through marketing system using the latest technology and teaches internet marketers how to use web 2.0 and social networking to build their own internet empire. It is Web 2.0, Social Marketing, master minding and marketing training from the master who has produced multiple million dollar producers.
 
Val Smyth has made millions building downlines in multiple networking companies and began a successful mentoring company, Mentors in Motion in 2001 in which he taught over 2 million people and inspired the wave of mentoring courses that continuously pop up.
 
"This opportunity is for real," said Val Smyth on a recent call. "There's no Mickey Mouse gifting program here. You'll learn how to become 10-feet-tall and bullet-proof in marketing."
 
The purpose of The Prosperity Cast Network is to enhance the serious marketer’s ability to succeed, Gras states The Prosperity Cast Network presents 8 live introductory business calls weekly. Feel free to listen in Monday thru Thursday - 4pm & 10 pm EST Dial 1-605-475-8500 pin 5572503

IBM pension freeze has ripple effect, More companies refuse to bear burden for retirement

The Prosperity Cast Network
 
This month might mark the moment when workers in America finally accept the idea that PENSIONS are on there way out as reported by Gannett News Service today. Jim Gras, Internet marketing Mentor.Trainer states, this is getting really scary for the average baby boomer.
 
IBM Corp. a large and profitable American company whose reputation for providing blue-chip benefits was once legend, froze all pension plans as of January 1, 2008, saying the change would save the company $3 Billion by 2010.
 
"Save the Company" not the American worker. The American worker has to claim there own Prosperity.
 
We have seen it time and time again. Healthy companies such as  General Motors, Verizon and Lockheed-Martin has retirement experts predicting the era of the pension will soon be over for up to three-quarters of the roughly 21 million workers enrolled in such plans.
 
This is an urgent problem now says Val Smyth Founder of The Prosperity Cast Network. Most things that end up being urgent didn't start out that way. Most urgent matters, had they been addressed when they first came up, would not have to be rushed.
 
So what are your expectations, asks Smyth. You could cut corners and still get by. But why would you ever want to settle for merely getting by? You could do a little bit less than what's expected of you, and it will probably be okay. But with just a little bit of extra effort, you'll be able to deliver more than what's expected. 
 
Starting your own business may be the answer for many, however you need to be educated in the business you have chosen. Did You Know... Out of all people that start employment at age 20, by age 65 1% are wealthy,  4% have enough money to retire,  3% are still working (can't afford to quit),  63% depend on Social Security, friends or charity,  29% are dead and 95% of all Americans retire in poverty after working for 45 years! - Bureau of Labor Statistics.
 
If your not one of the 4% who have enough money to retire, you certainly don't want to be one of the 63% who depend on Social Security, friends or charity. You want to take charge of your life. Starting a home based business is one of the easiest way's to go say Gras. The Internet has come of age.  New technology has been developed and new opportunities have been created with this technology that you probably haven't heard off yet.  But you must learn the craft. Weather it's with a health and wellness company like Xooma WorldWide or  a education company that teaches marketing like Veretekk you also need a sponsor, coach ~ Mentor Who won’t leave you high and dry.

Try It Out First

It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online weekly home business newsletter

How are you?  We're doing well here. 

Try It Out First

You’re starting a home business. Before you go any further and start investing your time and cash it's a good idea to test things out on a small scale.

Here are some things you can do.

No matter weather you plan to sell physical things, or your starting a website build a prototype. A prototype is a small version of your product that you build quickly to prove your idea is feasible. Show your prototype to a few people to see what they think. If you get a good response then you know you have a winner.

If you are providing a product or service why not test it out on a few customers. Give them a free try or a big discount to make sure that everything runs smoothly and the customers are satisfied and happy with your product. 

And don't forget to do some kind of survey to find out exactly what your customer thinks of your service. You could hand it to the customer, include it with your product, or call them up and say that you are just calling to make sure everything is went well.

So what ever you are planning remember it's a good idea to test it out on a small scale before you hit the big time. Trying it out gives you the opportunity to build confidence in yourself and your business without making big costly mistakes.

Remember, it's YOUR responsibility

With responsibility comes control. The things for which you are willing to accept the most responsibility are the things over which you are able to exercise the most control.

It may sometimes seem that avoiding responsibility is the easiest way to respond to challenging situations. Yet when you avoid responsibility, it allows other people and events to control your life.

And before long, taking the seemingly easy path of avoiding responsibility becomes very difficult indeed. Because when you run away from responsibility, you severely limit your options.

With The Prosperity Cast Network and Val Smyth, you can take responsibility, and use that responsibility to move your world forward. Take responsibility, and take positive control say's Jim Gras Veretekk and Prosperity Cast Network marketing trainer.

It may seem unfair to have to take responsibility for difficult situations that are not your fault. And yet, it is that very responsibility that will enable you to move positively forward through those challenges.

Though responsibility can be difficult and can require great effort, it is more an opportunity than a burden. For with responsibility, you can inject real, positive value into even the most troubling situation.

Gras was quoted as saying as an Internet Business Owner, you must take responsibility for your marketing too.  If you wait for others to do it for you it will cost you thousands of dollars do it right. If you are involved in an internet business you must have a Mentor that you have access to.

Members of The Prosperity Cast Network will have access to exclusive, live mentoring classes on proven marketing techniques and Web 2.0. training.as announced on January 12, 2008

"This opportunity is for real," said Val Smyth on a recent call. "There's no Mickey Mouse gifting program here. You'll learn how to become 10-feet-tall and bullet-proof in marketing."

The purpose of The Prosperity Cast Network is to enhance the serious marketer’s ability to succeed, Gras states The Prosperity Cast Network presents 8 live introductory business calls weekly. Feel free to listen in Monday thru Thursday - 4pm & 10 pm EST Dial 1-605-475-8500 pin 5572503

Courage and Prosperity go Hand in Hand

Hello, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online weekly home business newsletter!

I sure hope you're having a terrific week and have a good start to 2008!  I've been so busy with my business but that’s a good thing!

People want to live longer. They want to reach their goals, get in shape, eat better or have more energy. Help them reach their goal and you will reach yours.

Courage is what happens when your desire to make positive progress is greater than your fear of a negative setback.

Courage is what happens when you look at those fears, listen to them, learn from them, use them to prepare, and then move boldly forward. Courage is how problems are turned into opportunities. Courage is why some people are able to move the situation forward though there seems to be no hope.

Courage is when you do what you know is right, even if it is the more difficult and unpopular choice. Courage is something that builds new strength each time it is exercised.

Courage is not something that you must obtain or struggle to develop. Courage is a choice that can be yours the moment you decide to use it.

When the goal is worthy and filled with meaning, the courage to reach it will be there. When your sense of purpose is strong and clear, your courage will be too.

Courage is indeed a powerful way to live. And you can choose it every time. And always remember,  Courage and Prosperity go Hand in Hand.

See where you're going with The Prosperity Cast Network

When you can clearly see where you're going, you greatly improve your chances of getting there. The more clearly you can visualize your goals, the more likely you are to reach them.

Pursuing a vaguely defined objective is like traveling through a thick fog. It's slow and difficult to make any progress, and even when you arrive you may not know you're there.

Yet when your goals are clear, specific, and filled with rich detail, all kinds of great opportunities for moving toward them will continue to come into view. Your progress will be swift and sure, and you'll enjoy increasingly abundant rewards as you draw closer to them.

If you're putting forth the effort to get somewhere, take the time to determine exactly where it is, what it will look like, and how it will be. Get clear on your goals, and you'll find plenty of ways to achieve them.

Keep your goals clearly in sight by reminding yourself of them on a continuing basis. Experience them often in your own mind, and you'll soon be experiencing them in the reality of the outer world.

Rise above the fog of fuzzy wishes, and make your Goals your intentions, that are clear and specific. That will point you solidly toward wherever you want to go.

The purpose of The Prosperity Cast Network is to enhance the serious marketer’s ability to succeed.

Do You Have a Marketing Plan?

Hello, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!

I sure hope you're having a terrific week! 

Let me ask you a question. Do You Have Marketing Plan?

Marketing is the real back bone of your business. Don't you think that it is important enough to need a plan, completely separate from your basic business plan? After all with out a plan how will you know where you are going. Let's go over the basic information that your marketing plan should include.

First you need a marketing strategy and a budget. It is a good idea to get the basics of your marketing plan written down, so that you can see exactly what you are  aiming for. Start the process by making lists.

List of all the advertising you plan to do. Include websites, newspapers, radio, flyers, the yellow pages ect.

For each form of advertising you should assign an estimated cost. Determine how many customers you expect to reach. This will allow you to work out your cost of per customer, which is how much of you budget you need to spend on advertising to bring in one customer.

Next make a list all of the pricing policies you plan to have, as well as any special offers that you think will be good. Don't worry you can make price changes and new offers later, The idea here is to have some  basic long term plans.

Another good idea is to have a list of other businesses that could be considered to be competitors.  You need to know who you are up against and a good plan to differentiate yourself from them.

One of the best marketing company's I have ever found is Veretekk Marketing for online marketing. Try it and get a free silver system for a test drive.

This is just a basic outline for starting your businesses plan. Remember, when in doubt seek out help. Do a quick search for sample marketing plans online or visit your local library for more information.

Well, thanks again for joining us,

Retire Today Online Home Business Newsletter

Consider for a moment all the valuable achievements which have come about because someone wasn't satisfied with the way things were. Throughout history, great leaps forward have been made by people who were seeking something better.

Time after time, something wasn't working as well as it could have, there were problems, shortcomings, issues that needed addressing, and someone addressed them. Someone saw what was wrong, envisioned something better, and then made it happen.

What we think of as progress is really a continuing positive response to dissatisfaction and frustration with the way things are. When things are not perfect, there is always a way to make them better.

Hello Jim Gras here, Welcome back to your Retire Today Online Home Business Newsletter

Each issue you will receive business information, articles and quick tips you can use to build your home business.

In this issue let's talk a little about....

Have You Been Brainwashed to Be Broke?

The sad fact is that most of us were taught how to be broke. Brainwashed, really, to be stuck in crappy jobs with low wages.

But there is a way out. And you don't need anything but your mind, focused in the proper direction.

What's all this about Prosperity?

The Prosperity Cast NetworkThe things to which you give your attention will grow stronger. Think about something, focus on something, give your energy to something, and that energy gives it life, whatever it may be. What you work toward will grow stronger. What you fight against will also grow stronger.
 
If you focus on your frustrations, you end up becoming even more frustrated. And if you then continue to dwell on those frustrations, eventually you reach the point where it's nearly impossible to focus on anything else.

Real happiness does not come from the fulfillment of every desire. You can chase an endless chain of wishes and desires, and still manage to be unhappy says Val Smyth the original Renegade Marketer.
 
However Prosperity comes, quite simply, when you allow it. Though your life may be filled with challenges and difficulties, still you can be genuinely happy. Whether you are close to reaching your intentions, or far away, or already beyond them, real happiness is always close at hand.
 
With The Prosperity Cast Network Smyth says, Each new skill you master makes your existing skills and knowledge more valuable and more useful. Thus the relatively small amount of effort it takes to learn something new can end up paying off in a big way.
 
Start something new, and your level of confidence can increase dramatically. Start something new, and you experience a whole new, interesting, exciting corner of the world.
 
Yes, it takes some initiative on your part to get started on something new. Once you get going, though, your energy level will increase to more than meet the demand.
 
Start something new in your life. The richness you'll gain is well worth the effort.

Add some Joy to your Life this Year with The Prosperity Cast Network.

 
Take a few steps away from the chatter and confusion to a place where you can see more clearly. Take a few steps away and give yourself a new and empowering perspective. You'll see that much of what concerns you, need not concern you. You'll see that the problems are more than overwhelmed by all the opportunities and positive possibilities.
 
You'll see that many of the things which hold you back do so only with your consent. You'll see how easy it can be to let them go and to let yourself move forward. Take a few steps away, to a place where you can focus on what is truly important. It's a place where your purpose really matters, where your efforts truly and easily make a positive difference.
 
Life is beautiful, and filled with an unending stream of wonderful possibilities. Take a few steps away from the noise and confusion, and you'll see the best of those possibilities come clearly into focus.
Every joy you've experienced, even years and years ago, is still with you. Time and events can take away the conditions and surroundings of that joy, yet they can never take away the joy itself.
 
Joy has no need of being remembered, for it is always with you. All you have to do is allow it to fill your heart, and it will.
 
The terrain will change, the colors will fade, the sounds will grow silent and other experiences will take their place. Yet the joy is always as fresh and new, as sweet and revitalizing as ever.
 
Even when memories grow dim, the joy will shine ever more brightly. For joy is truly timeless.
 
Put joy into your life and it will always be there. The more often you let it touch you and fill you, the more of it there will be.
 
Put joy into your moments and create value that you can always draw upon. Spread joy to others and you give a gift that will keep on giving, over and over again.
 
Add some Joy to your Life this Year with The Prosperity Cast Network.

Val Smyth say's This is for Real

You cannot avoid being successful. The things you have fully committed yourself to achieving, you have achieved.The things you have truly expected of yourself have become real. The life you lead is exactly what your thoughts and actions up to now have succeeded at creating.
 
Yes, you are successful, for it is your very nature. The question is -- successful at what? Have your thoughts, commitments, expectations, and actions succeeded at creating the life you desire, or have they succeeded at avoiding it? If the success that you've already achieved has not brought you to where you want to be, then you can adjust your approach. You have successfully brought yourself to this point. And you can successfully go from here to any place you choose. It's great when things are going your way. And yet true fulfillment in life does not depend on everything always being perfect. It's great when fortune smiles on you. And yet it is in the difficult, challenging times that you grow stronger and gain valuable wisdom says Val Smyth founder of The Prosperity Cast Network
 
It's great when you get something right on the first attempt. And yet there is much to be learned from mistakes and disappointments as well. It's great to spend some time relaxing. And yet if that's all you ever do, life can become unbearably empty. Whatever life may send your way, there's a way for you to make the most of it. In every up and every down, you have the golden opportunity to fully live.

Val Smyth say's your value does not depend on what others think

The Prosperity Cast Network
And yet your value does not depend on what others think.
 
The question now is, what results would you like to achieve next? Aim your focus, aim your commitment, aim your priorities, aim the efforts of each moment in the direction of those results, and they will most certainly happen.

It's great when things are going your way. And yet true fulfillment in life does not depend on everything always being perfect. Take a look around you, right this moment, and you'll see the results of your past priorities. Whatever has been most important to you, whatever has been the focus of your time and commitment, has come to pass.
 
It's great when fortune smiles on you. And yet it is in the difficult, challenging times that you grow stronger and gain valuable wisdom.  It's great when you get something right on the first attempt. And yet there is much to be learned from mistakes and disappointments as well. This is exactly what I teach say's Val Smyth founder of The Prosperity Cast Network
 
It's great when others think highly of you. And yet your value does not depend on what others think. Happiness is far too valuable to be put off until later, or buried in the past. Happiness is here for you to bring to life in the only place where you can truly experience it, the present moment.
 
With The Prosperity Cast Network, whatever life may send your way, there's a way for you to make the most of it. In every up and every down, you have the golden opportunity to fully live.

Do You Need Staff?

I hope your week has gone well!

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter.

Tell me.....

Do You Need Staff?

When your business grow large enough you may have to consider the fact that you can't do everything that needs to be done by yourself. You need to hire some help.

Did you know that employing people is like investing? You invest the cost of the wages and you get a return on your investment by getting more work done. If you stop getting a return on your investment then you need to start investing in someone else.

The first step in hiring a staff is to advertise. You shouldn't have too much trouble with this part, since there are always people looking for a good job. Look online, check out a few agencies or tell some people you know. Once you have a few takers you can start interviewing.

Remember when you start interviewing that you are looking for someone to not only make your life easier, you also want someone capable of increasing your bottom line. You don't want to spend a lot on your investment if you aren't going to get a good return.

Ask some basic questions so that you can get a feel for their personalities. You want to work with someone who is personable, competent and reliable. Start out simple.

- Tell me about yourself? The response to this simple question will give you a good idea about their personality what they think is important, as well as some insight to their ability .

- Why should I hire you?  This will give you a good idea of how confident they are in their ability to do the job. Have them explain how they will meet your job requirements.

- Why did you leave your last job?  This will give you a feel for how they view their past employers. This will also help you spot potential problems. If they use excuses or complaints then you may want to put them at the bottom of your pile.

As an employer you have the right to ask any questions that will help you find the right person for the job. Just remember by law, you can't ask as anything that could be thought of as discrimination, including questions related to age, race, religion, nationality, marital status, medical history or disability.

One last note. When you hire people, you need to remember that you have to pay taxes. You will more than likely have to pay their income taxes as well as medical insurance taxes. Make sure you check your local tax laws. Or better yet check with an accountant who can help you.

Take care, and we'll see you next week!

The "tipping point" in my business...

Every morning I have a ritual.
 
First, I wake up... usually while it's still dark outside... to the smell of fresh coffee. (I have one of those coffee makers with a timer that turns itself on and automatically brews a pot of java goodness for me.)
 
Then, I roll out of bed and stumble into the kitchen with my sidekick, my cat Missy.
 
I pour myself a cup of java in my lucky mug I got from my Granddaughters, head into my home office, and turn on my computer to check my emails with Missy lying on my lap.
 
That's it. It's simple, and it's been my morning ritual for YEARS.
 
But NOW, something shocking has happened...
 
I opened up my inbox, puffy eyed and coffee mug in hand, and what I saw almost knocked me sideways --
http://www.prosperitycastnetwork.com
 
Now up to this point, business had been good.
 
But this morning was the "tipping point" that propelled my business from good to *great*... and by great, I mean making money hand over fist!
 
And it was stupid easy.
 
A lot of people try and make this more complicated than it really is. But if you know the right strategies, it's actually VERY simple. And the best part? YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

Handling Financial Strain

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!,

Wow!  We've been moving a mile a minute around here. 

I hope you're doing well!

Today we're going to talk about the Handling Financial Strain

When you start a home business it's easy to get carried away by all your new responsibilities like keeping your customers happy, managing expenses  building your business. All of this can be very stressful and most home business owners simply ignore this and keep on going. But that is not always the best idea.

Many people get stressed out and upset a shortly after they start their own business and quit their day job. They feel like they gave up their financial stability and start to regret the decision.

If this starts to happen to you the best thing you can do is step back and remember the reasons that you started you business. Go over your business plans and reaffirm your ability to make your business a success. Remember you knew this was going to be hard on you financially when you started so it's no excuse to call it quits.

One thing you can do is keep good records. Not knowing exactly what your financial situation is can be the most stressful part of running your own home business. I know you might think you don't want to know, but when you leave it to your imagination that is when things really start to get out of control. If you know exactly where you stand you will feel more control over the situation. The simplest way to keep records for yourself is to use an accounting program like QuickBooks or even just a simple spreadsheet.

Don't give in to the stress. When you feel stressed out your first thought may be to hide under the covers and ignore whatever it is that is stressing you out. By hiding you will only make your situation worse. By facing it head on you will feel stronger and more competent to make your business a success.

When you run a home business, you might have to make a few sacrifices or sell a few things to make it through the tough times, but I guarantee you  that you will find it is the most rewarding adventure of your life if you stick it out and make it a success. Check Out The Prosperity Cast Network to help your Handling of all your Financial Strain

Before You Do Anything

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!

How are you?  We're doing well here. 

Try It Out First

You’re starting a home business. Before you go any further and start investing your time and cash it's a good idea to test things out on a small scale.

Here are some things you can do.

No matter weather you plan to sell physical things, or your starting a website build a prototype. A prototype is a small version of your product that you build quickly to prove your idea is feasible. Show your prototype to a few people to see what they think. If you get a good response then you know you have a winner.

If you are providing a product or service why not test it out on a few customers. Give them a free try or a big discount to make sure that everything runs smoothly and the customers are satisfied and happy with your product. 

And don't forget to do some kind of survey to find out exactly what your customer thinks of your service. You could hand it to the customer, include it with your product, or call them up and say that you are just calling to make sure everything is went well.

So what ever you are planning remember it's a good idea to test it out on a small scale before you hit the big time. Trying it out gives you the opportunity to build confidence in yourself and your business without making big costly mistakes.

I hope that’s helpful. Talk to you later!

You take care and I will see you next week,

Attract Money and Material

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online home business newsletter!

I'm excited that you take time each week to let us into your life.  Please feel free to write in and share any of your tips and ideas on how we can make this newsletter more informative and meaningful for you. 

We'd love to hear from you!

Today we're taking a look at some powerful concepts

How Can I Use Affirmations to Attract Money and Material Possessions?"

So you desire to gain material things in life? Affirmations are usually effective in this respect - maybe even more so than with other desires because material desires often come with stronger emotional attachments.

You'll recall that in my previous article, "Why Do Some Affirmations *Work* - and Others Don't?" I emphasized that affirmations that are emotionally charged are the ones most likely to work. So when you are emotionally connected to your desire for material things, you can use the power of affirmations to see how quickly your need is manifested!

Power Affirmations for Attracting Money. If your desire is to have an abundance of money to fill your needs, practice this affirmation: "I always have an abundance of money to meet all my needs." Repeat it several times, and then stop affirming. Be silent while knowing, visualizing, and feeling how it is to already have the amount of money you desire. Feel as though it has already happened, and that all your needs are more than satisfied. While in this state, hold yourself open to all the ways and means by which you will have money flow into your life to meet your every need.

Following are other power affirmations for abundant supply. Choose the affirmations that feel appropriate to you --those that resonate with you, or strike an emotional chord. It is important that the words feel comfortable to you and are in line with who you are. Feel free to create one for your specific need by substituting other words that have special meaning to you:

Affirmations of Abundant Supply:

* I am now open to receive.
* Life is easy; I have an abundance of whatever I need.
* I now have surplus, all my needs are being met.
* I have unlimited abundance.
* I now give and receive freely.
* This is a rich universe and there is plenty for all of us.
* I now live in a rich and loving universe.
* Money comes to me easily and effortlessly.
* I am always supplied with whatever I need.
* I move forward with an expectancy of my greatest good.
* I look for and receive a bountiful supply.
* My greatest good is coming to me NOW.

The last affirmation was a turning point for me personally.

TIP: How to Maintain the Emotional Charge of Your Affirmations

Most people who practice affirmations experience the challenge of maintaining the emotional charge of their affirmations. That's because although the power of thought is amazingly strong, it remains strong for a short period of time. Its quality changes and tends to diminish with each repetition.

For example: Suppose you recite an affirmation such as: "All my needs are met instantaneously." The affirmation produces a feeling, and you understand and connect with the affirmation at a certain level. But when you continue repeating the affirmation, "All my needs are met instantaneously," again and again, the thought seldom maintains the same level of emotion previously achieved. With each repetition, you tend to lose the mental picture of what the words mean, and they start to have less meaning.

Affirmations that are meaningless fail to reach deep enough to touch the limitless powers of your subconscious mind.

To prevent this from happening, we developed Unlocking The Master Key. Discover how to tap into the power of computerization to take the power of your affirmations to the highest level at http://www.unlocking-the-masterkey-system.com

Join the millions of People Around the World Who Have Discovered the Power of The Secret. Originally published in 1912, this 24 part self study course sold over 200,000 copies before being banned and mysteriously removed from public knowledge, only to resurface by chance in 1994. Why?

An Agreement was made...

Those that knew how to Harness and Apply these Incredible Insights, Dominated and Controlled their environments, while the masses would be at their mercy..

Interesting, wouldn't YOU agree?

Retire Today Online weekly home business newsletter!

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online weekly home business newsletter!

Glad you're back! I sure do hope your week is going well!

Do you know if, You Need a License?

Did you know that there are many types of businesses that are strictly regulated and controlled by the government?

I once knew a lady whose great idea was to make croutons from her house. Needless to say, that didn't last long when the inspector heard about it.

If you think you've got an idea that’s going to make you big money, there might be a reason why everyone else isn't doing it and that reason could be related to the law.

As I mentioned above if you are going to sell food, you will need to license and register for hygiene and safety inspections. For many reasons most local government agencies are especially strict if you plan to handle food especially raw meat.  Food licenses aren't too hard to get provided you are willing to have your kitchen and products inspected at regular intervals

An in home daycare will need a license. There are all sorts of courses to take and regular inspections to go through. If you ever wonder why there’s a shortage of in home childcare providers it’s because it’s so hard to keep up with the rules and make a profit.

Gambling is almost always strictly regulated.  It might be fine to gamble privately with your friends depending on where you live, but as soon as you start running it as a business you are on shaky ground. You'll also find that most places have laws against lotteries. Applying for a license to turn your home into a gambling establishment is pretty sure to fail.

You will need a license if you plan to serve alcohol. Getting an alcohol license for your home, unless it's for some kind of special event and the drinking is just incidental is pretty much out of the question. Alcohol licenses are subject to appeals from people who live near you. So unless your whole neighborhood is ok with it you may have trouble.

Anything medical will probably need a license. When I say medical, I mean doctors, dentists, opticians, and even vets. You might think it is a great idea to turn your home into an animal hospital, but you need to be qualified and licensed. Of course, if you've previously been a doctor, dentist, or whatever, then you shouldn't have too much trouble getting licensed to do the same thing from home.

This list just covers some of the most common businesses that need licensing. The best idea is to check your local laws and make sure your home business is properly licensed.

Avoiding Home Business Scams

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online weekly home business newsletter!

I sure hope everything is going great for you today!

I'd like to tell you little about: How you can avoid home business scams.

If you're thinking of working from home you have to realize that at least 99% of the offers out there are scams. Now really if is so easy to pay a few dollars and make thousands, wouldn't everyone be doing it by now? Here are the biggest scams out there, how to recognize them, and how to avoid them.

First where did you see the "Big Money" work from home offer? If you received it in your email, saw a poster tacked to a bulletin board or one of those little signs on the side of the road then I can almost guarantee you that it’s not a legitimate offer. If you saw an ad in a newspaper, a job magazine or on a job website, then it’s more likely to be legitimate but not always. Remember always check out any offer, and assume it’s a scam until you have proof it's not.

Envelope Stuffing is one of the most established work from home scams. The way it works is once you pay your money and sign up to work from home, you are sent a set of envelopes and ads just like the one you responded to. Then you stuff your envelopes and pay to send them out. You could make some money if someone responds to your ad but the chances are slim. Don't waste your money on this one.

Home assemblers wanted. Charging for supplies is hard to pin down to any one scam it’s the way almost all work at home scams work. First you will be asked invest in the materials needed to do the work and then you will be sent very cheap materials that aren't worth anything like what you paid for them. Once the product is assembled you'll find that there’s no one who will buy it.

Quick tip: If anyone asks for money up front run away fast. A real company should be willing to deduct any ‘fees’ from your first paycheck. If they won't do that for you, then that’s because they don't ever plan to pay you.

A variation on the scam common with crafts is that you might be asked to work at home making clothes, ornaments or toys. Everything seems legitimate you've got the materials without paying out any money, and you're doing the work. Unfortunately for you, when you send the work back, the company will tell you that it didn't meet their ‘quality standards’, and will refuse to pay you. Never do craft work from home unless you're selling the items yourself.

Now let’s discuss home typing and medical billing scams. There are lots of work from home scams that will lead you to believe that they have more work than they can handle so they need people to work from home. What will happen? You will be told that you would be typing documents, or entering medical bills into a computer. These scams have one thing in common. They say all you need is your computer and then all you have to do is buy their special software to do the job.

This software might appear to be from a completely unrelated company, but don't be fooled. The whole reason the work from home ad was there to begin with was a sneaky way to sell you their software.

I hope this helps you see running a home business that involves you working for one company is a bad idea. You don't know whom you're dealing with. Remember even with entirely legal work at home offers that does pay you for your work, you still won't make near as much money as you can with your very own home business.

I'm sure you get bombarded daily just like I do with email offers that promise to make you rich beyond your wildest dreams. The trouble with the majority of those offers is that they are bogus. They may be good programs, but all too often they lack what would be great marketers really need - good training, coaching and personal mentoring.

A true wealth building system requires the personal touch. There is no such thing as an automated system that will do all the work for you. A good automated system is one that does the sorting for you. Sorting means separating the tire kickers from the serious business builders.

An honest wealth building system incorporates training, personal coaching and mentoring within the system. This requires a team of professional successful marketers who will teach YOU the art and science of building an internet business. You must have personal access to these successful people.

A legitimate wealth building system requires an investment. You simply cannot expect something from nothing. If you expect to make money from a system, you must expect to invest money.

The real secret to building wealth comes from the movement of money. You must also invest your time. Remember, you will get out of your online business in direct proportion what you put into it.

This is true of both time and money. If you join a $19.99/mo program, don't expect to make hundreds of thousands right away. You may well make 6 figures, but it will not happen overnight. At $19.99/mo, you need thousands of people under you!


My wealth building system provides you with:
multiple income streams
access to top producers (Val Smyth, Jim Gras, Karen Weir to name a few)
live training and personal coaching on a daily basis
a proven results oriented system
an education that will enable you to market any product you choose
inside information on new income streams and wealth building strategies
much much more... ~ Plus ~
You can enter at whatever level you are comfortable with

Your job is to determine your outcomes by your intentions. What are your income expectations? Are they in alignment with your time and budget?

What are your Intentions click here so I can help you develop a Business Plan based on your own intentions.

(Note: At Mentors In Motion, we do not set goals - we simply do as we intend)

I promise, I won't be wasting your time.

Let's make money and change lives.. Together

Choosing a Name for Your Business

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online weekly home business newsletter!

Just wanted to share... Another Home Business Quick Tip with you.

Remember people want to save money. They may want to invest for the future or save for a big purchase. This will make them feel more secure.

Business definition for the week:

Director. The people ultimately in charge of a company are its directors. For a large company, there will be a board of directors, appointed by the shareholders. For a home business, though, you can appoint yourself as the sole director since you are also the sole shareholder Look for another home business quick tip soon!

How are you?  We're doing well here.  Tell me have you gotten around to....

Choosing a Name for Your Business?

One of the most important things your business needs is a name. Your name will be the very first thing that almost all of your customers see.

You have to pick a name that says something about you and your business that people in your target market will remember easily.

A good basic idea is to use your last name followed by what you do. Like Walton's Feed and Supply or Anderson's Plumbing. You could also add the town where you live in to the name like Anderson's Little Rock Plumbing.

You can also leave out your name and simply become Little Rock Feed and Supply. This makes you sound like the first choice locally and will help target your local area.

If you are going to be dealing with the big companies you may want to consider a more corporate sounding name. Think of a word to describe your business then add the word "Consulting".

If you're going for a trendier market you might want a less formal name.  You may want to name your business after an animal, and use that animal in your logo too. If you don't have a big marketing budget, this is a good way to get started branding your business. For example take Geico. They use that gecko lizard on everything. What do you remember when you think of car insurance?

Try a short name. Take two or three words that describe your business then shorten them to make it one word. So you end up with IHOP (International House of Pancakes) this is a great way to express what you do without having long hard to remember name.

And when nothing else seems to fit make up a name. Just play with your words until you come up with a name that sounds right and the best part is it will be completely unique to your business.

Whatever you do make sure your business name is easy to pronounce, spell and remember

Once you have a few names picked out make sure you check to make sure no one else is using them. You don't want to get your business started then find out that the name you want is taken.

Well, hope that’s helpful to you, Talk to you later!

Advice on Starting a Business

Hello again, It’s Jim Gras, back again with your Retire Today Online weekly home business newsletter!
 
I'm excited that you take time each week to let us into your life.  Please feel free to write in and share any of your tips and ideas on
how we can make this newsletter more informative and meaningful.  We'd love to hear from you!
 
I've been quite busy this week with running my home business!
 
I'm always on the Internet,  looking for informative articles!  I found one that I think you'll really like.
 
Getting advice when you start a home business, it can be easy to get confused. Chances are you don't know anyone else that has started a home business so where do you go for help.
 
First go online. The Internet is a great resource for people who have a home business. You can find articles and newsletters with information and advice. There are also many message boards, forums and blogs where you can read, ask questions and get advice from other home business owners.
 
Go to your local library. Talk to the librarian. Libraries contain all sorts of home business books and resources. Your librarian should be more than happy to help you do research.
 
Find a Mentor. They are usually volunteers who have had great business success and will be glad to help start up new businesses. They often have years of experience and can be really helpful.
 
The SBA. The Small Business Administration provides a multitude of material on starting your own business. Visit http://www.sba.gov
 
Depending on where you live, you might find local government agencies that will give you free help and advice. Check your listings for small business center in your area.
 
Your bank should have been the first place you went if you were thinking of starting a business. While they're no replacement for accountants, most banks will have a business advisor on staff to help you open a business account. They can be especially helpful with the technical and financial elements of starting your business.
 
Lawyers know all about starting a new business. It can be well worth paying for an hour of a lawyer’s time and just asking them every question you can think of. Look around you may even be able to get a free consultation.
 
Accountants also know all about business and can be less expensive alternative to lawyers. If you want your business to be profitable you should take the advice your accountant gives you and if you don't have one, you should get one.
 
Look for investors. There are people who back businesses for a living. If you think your business would be attractive to investors then you can try going to an investor with your idea. If they like it, they will often have a quick process set up to get your company up and running as soon as possible.
 
Visit your local universities. They are full of business students. They spend all their time learning about business, and many of them would just love to help get a real one off the ground. Business students can be a great source of free help and advice.
 
Remember whatever industry you're thinking of entering probably has some kind of trade association, society or union. You should join as soon as you can, and take advantage of all the resources that offer to people getting started in their industry.
 
There is an endless supply of help and advice out there. Just don't be afraid to ask!

Jim Gras here, Welcome to my Retire Today Online Home Business Weekly!
 
Each week you will receive an issue with home business information, articles and quick tips you can use to build your home business.
 
In this issue let's talk a little about.... Why You Want to Start a Home Business?
 
Working from home is a big dream for many. But fear holds us back. Below I have listed a few reasons why starting a home business is a great idea.
 
Your Great Idea Comes to Life. You have a great business idea. This is the number one reason that most people go into business from home. Remember the kind of ideas that are good for a home business are ones that can become real quickly, and start bringing in an income almost immediately.
 
You can do What You Love. Most people have something that they really love to do.  Getting paid for doing what you love is a dream come true.
 
You get to be the boss. No more working your fingers to the bone for someone else. You will be the boss and you will reap the rewards.
 
You want more time with your Family. No more missing out on weekends, family occasions or Holidays. You will be home for every special moment.
 
No More Wasting Time and Money Commuting. With the high price of gas and the average commute to work being thirty miles one
 
way just think of the time and money you will save when you work from home!
 
These reasons alone are good enough to say I am ready to start my own home business. In an up coming issue we will discuss How to write your business plan.

Health Tip of the Day ~ "Getting Fit. . . One Step at a Time"

A study at John Hopkins University discovered that listening to soft music while you eat helps you eat less and chew slower.  Rock music causes you to eat faster and consume more food.
 
It seems obvious and yet it's a powerful truth that's all too often overlooked. To stay focused you need something on which to focus -- something specific, something clear and well defined.
 
Are you having trouble staying focused? Then perhaps you need to more clearly define the object of your focus. As an example, let's say you're attempting to focus on making more money.
 
Did You Know?
 
Water is an essential nutrient that regulates body temperature, transports oxygen and nutrients to cells, cushions joints, and protects organs and tissues.
 
The human body is more than 80% water!
 
The vague goal of "making more money and Water" is not clear enough nor definitive enough. Exactly how much more money do you intend to earn? Precisely how do you intend to earn it? What will you do with it when you get it, and why is that important to you? Questions such as these will provide you with a clear and specific object on which to focus.
 
Millions of people around the world today want and need to make money from home. I'm proud to say that I believe the best global business in existence today is Xooma Worldwide.

Someday ... If Only ...

The young boy and the young girl say, "Someday when I get out of school, move away from home, and start college, I'm really going to have fun. I'll be happy and life will be great."
 
The college student says, "Someday when I graduate, get my degree, get a job and my own apartment, I'll be happy and am really gonna live!"
 
The young couple says, "Someday when we get moved into our new home, get that promotion, and join the country club, we'll really be happy and life will be so good."
 
Mother and father say, "Someday, when those kids get out of school and we get this place paid off, we're really gonna be happy and truly enjoy life."
 
The older couple says, "Someday when we retire, we're really gonna enjoy life, do all those things we've been wanting to do but never seemed to take time to do ... we're gonna be happy and have a good time then!"
 
The accountant says, "When tax season's over ..."; the teacher says, "When school's out ..."; the farmer says, "When the crops are in ..."; the technician says, "When this program's completed ..."; the engineer says, "When this job's done ..."; the speaker/entertainer says, "When this tour's finished ..."; the candidate says, "When I'm elected ..."; the coach or player says, "When the season's over ..."; the statistician says, "When all the numbers are in ..."; the health minister says, "When I see what the others are gonna do ..."; ... ad infinitum.
 
On the way out, they look back longingly and say, "Wow! If only I had it to do over again, I'd have gone barefooted to school in the spring like Billy Bob did, and slipped off to the creek with Ralph Raymond and Joe Day to go swimming after school like they did."
 
"If only I hadn't gotten married so young, I'd have gone to Alaska with Ed, Kendall, and Pete ... what fun that would have been!"
 
"If only I'd borrowed the money, taken the chance, and developed that idea of mine into a business like Ed did instead of taking a job with the Grist Mill because of the security they offered, two weeks vacation with pay each year ... a company car and expense account ... an insurance program ... retirement, social security, and a gold watch."
 
"If only I could do it over again, I'd smile more, worry less ... I'd take chances, I'd travel to exotic places, meeting interesting people, ride motorcycles, fly airplanes and hot-air balloons ... I'd hike mountain trails, zip across the desert, camp out, canoe, portage, fish, hunt, laugh, love, and live!"
 
"Oh, If only I could live it all over, I'd take better care of myself, exercise more often, drink more juices ... eat less fat and more veggies. I'd treasure every day, love everybody, thank God for my blessings and lessons, my successes and my setbacks."
 
"If only ... I'd be happy and truly live every day!" There's an old fable ... and the subject of a recent great book by Mark L. Feldman and Michael F. Spratt ... that goes, "There were five frogs on a log ... four of 'em decided to jump. How many frogs are left on the log?" The most common answer is "one." The second most popular answer is "none" ... because, the guesser reasons, if four decided to jump, the remaining frog probably went along with the majority. The right answer is "five"! Deciding to do something and taking the action to do it are two entirely different things. As my daddy used to say, "Aiming to, don't pick no cotton!" Continue the article...

Become a “ Mastermind ”

Do you have a “Mastermind Group”?

Almost every single millionaire in the country has a Mastermind Group. If you're serious about changing your lifestyle, then this may be one of the first things you’ll want to do.

One of the best books ever written on how to achieve great success is "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. It’s the #1 best-selling book of all time on creating wealth.

It's most powerful principle? The “Mastermind Group.”

Whatever you could normally accomplish on your own is instantly multiplied when you’re part of a Mastermind Group.

Here’s the problem...you can't “mastermind” with just anyone. You need to find people who are working toward the same things in life you want. You need to surround yourself with people who will support your goals and dreams.

Consider this fact: Think about your 5 closest friends. What are their average personal incomes? According to leading business experts, 3-5 years from now YOUR personal income will equal the average of your 5 closest friends.

If you're not happy with your current income or the average income of your 5 closest friends, then it's time to make a change. Become part of a Mastermind Group, like ours, who is dedicated to achieving wealth through additional streams of income using the Internet.

This is your chance to work with a proven team of professionals...and the best part is you can get started by simply making your first product order with us.

Or call me at 1-800-897-6458. (If you get my voicemail, leave a message with your phone number and I'll get back to you as soon as I am available.)

Respectfully,

Jim Gras

P.S. The moment I turned my back on the negative and skeptical people in my life, I found it was much easier to succeed. As the old saying goes, “You can't hang around a fire without smelling like smoke.”

In that same spirit, you can't hang around people with negative attitudes and expect to be successful.

How many people do this every day?

Here’s an important question...

How many people do you know who drink water?

Think about it. Do you anyone who DOESN’T drink water? Heck, you probably know many people who tell you that they need to be drinking MORE water.

The reason this question is so important is because it reveals one of the main reasons our Company is so successful and why we believe we can help YOU succeed.

Virtually EVERYONE around the world drinks water! From infants to the elderly, water is the one beverage that everyone needs. Our product, Xtreme X2O, is a WATER enhancement product. It takes plain water and transforms it into a powerful health beverage without changing the taste. In fact, in most cases, people report that it makes the water taste “cleaner and fresher.”

So, here’s the real question...

Can you find at least 2 people in the next 30 days who drink water and who want to make extra money working from home?

If you answered “yes,” you can make money with our Company. Let me show you how easy and fun this business can be. And don’t forget...you can get started with us by simply placing your first product order.

Xooma is waiting for your call...

Now, here's some facts about water that will blow you away!

Thirsty?

Bottled water consumption jumped 57% between 1999 and 2004, according to an Earth Policy Institute Report.

The U.S. leads, with an average of eight ounces a person a day. Next is Mexico, followed by China and Brazil.

Each year, consumers spend $100 Billion on water!

Meanwhile, 1.1 billion people lack a secure water supply, a problem the United Nations says will cost 30 billion
dollars a year until 2015 to reduce by half. Source: National Geographic, 12/2006


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Water?

Water constitutes 90% of your blood, 75% of your brain and muscles, 25% of your body fat and 22% of bone.

Water helps the body in all of its functions by regulating temperature, flushing impurities and even improving mental alertness.

Without water the body can only survive a few days.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Ocean is our relative?

The earth is 70% water. And our bodies are 70% water. It's no coincidence. Ocean-based minerals are vital to our health and well-being.

Unfortunately, most people still get their nutrition from land-based elements.

You get 74 essential minerals from X2O.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For YOUR information:

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half world pop.)

In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken
for hunger.

Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.

One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the
dieters studied in a U-Washington study.

Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could
significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with
basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%,
plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to
develop bladder cancer.

Now the question is:
Are you drinking the amount of  X2O infused water you should be everyday?

Experience X2O - YOUR body will be Thankful!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wouldn't it be awesome to have a business with a simple system online
and a product EVERY human being on the planet needs?

Take control of your life today!

You don't have to see anyone, meet anyone, go anywhere, push products
or services on people who don't want them, or work long hours. We have
the perfect business that allows you to spend time with your family and work
any time you want to or not want to.

 Listen, it's time you start making much more money than you are

What if you did not have to work tomorrow?

Can you imagine having so much money coming in every month from your home-based business that you no longer had to work? Well, stop imagining and start turning that dream into a reality.

EVERYONE wants that type of opportunity and you have it right in front of you.  We're not talking a huge investment here. Especially when you compare it to any other type of business.

So why wait? This is a simple business that you can start on a part-time basis. Once your part-time business income is more than the income from your job, you’ll finally be in a position to where you WON’T have to go to work for someone else. You’ll be able to stay at home and work for yourself.

This is the exact system that money earners are using to build their business... and now you can too. The sooner we get you started, the sooner you start making money. I’m ready to help you in any way I can. The only question is, are you ready?

Let’s go to the following website watch the movie and find out together.  Go Here
 
After you complete your research, we can then speak live and take the next step together.

Water or Coke?

I could not believe this.....  Very interesting

WATER

#1.   75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
        (Likely applies to half the world population.)

#2.   In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak
         that it is mistaken for hunger.

#3.   Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as 3%.

#4.   One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs
         for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of
         Washington study.

         you should drink every day?

 

COKE

#1.    In many states the highway patrol carries
          two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from
          the highway after a car accident.

#2.    You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke
          and it will be gone in two days.

#3.   To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the
         toilet bowl and let the "real thing" sit for one hour,
         then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes
         stains from vitreous china.

#4.    To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers:
          Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds
          Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

#5.   To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour
         a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble
         away the corrosion.

#6.   To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola
         to the rusted bolt for several minutes.

#7.   To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into
         the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake.
         Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the
         drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy.

#8...  To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke
          into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run
          through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen
          grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your
          windshield.

         FOR YOUR INFORMATION:

#1.     the active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid.
          It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric
          acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major
          contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis.

#2.   To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the
         commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place
         cards reserved for highly corrosive materials.

#3.     The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean
          engines of the trucks for about 20 years!


      Now the question is, would you like a glass of water?

            or Coke?

Make each challenge pay

Challenge can make you stop, or it can make you unstoppable. It all depends on how you respond. Challenge can compel you to make valuable improvements that you never would have attempted otherwise. Challenge can open your eyes to a whole new level of possibilities.

When the challenges come, gladly accept the energy that they have to give you. Greet each challenge with the expectation that it will make you stronger, more capable, more experienced, more effective.

Then jump right in and get to work on that challenge. The more quickly and enthusiastically you get started, the more real value you'll be able to gain.

Challenge will give you the opportunity to discover how very much you can accomplish. And knowing how much you can accomplish sets you up to accomplish even more.

When there is a challenge in your life, it's only a matter of time and effort before that challenge can be transformed into a real and lasting treasure. Take the time, put forth the effort, and you'll surely make each challenge pay.

Somewhere new

No matter how many places you may have been, there is always somewhere new that you can go. No matter how many ideas you may have already explored, there is always something new to consider. Nothing can energize you in quite the same way as going to a place where you've never been before. Whether it is visiting a new physical place, considering a new concept, or making a new friend, each new experience adds much richness to life.

When you seem to be stuck, and not making any progress, a change of scenery is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Whether it is for fifteen minutes, a weekend, or a month, going somewhere new and different can get you moving forward again.

It may seem like a waste of time to stop what you're doing and switch your attention to something else. Yet often, the best way to maintain your focus is to give that focus a rest for a while.

By gaining a new perspective, you can re-connect in a powerful way with your purpose, your passion, with the energy that drives your life. By experiencing yourself being somewhere new, you can learn valuable new things about yourself and your world.

If would, of course, be foolish to try to run away from your problems and responsibilities. Yet when you take the time to get away to somewhere new, you'll gain new insight and energy for successfully addressing those problems and fulfilling those responsibilities.

On a regular basis, go somewhere new. And keep fresh, positive energy flowing into your life.

Water Facts

Do you pay taxes?

If you’re like most people, you probably pay more than your fair share. In fact, if you’re part of the largest working group known as the “middle class,” you probably pay a higher percentage of taxes than anyone else.

But even worse...

The rich and wealthy are buying their mansions, luxury cars, and yachts with YOUR money. Keep reading...

Believe it or not, the wealthy are paying a much smaller percentage of taxes than you do.

How do they do it?

The vast majority of wealthy people OWN their own business. They work for themselves, as a business owner, they qualify for hundreds of tax breaks that most people don’t even know about.

FACT: If you’re an employee working for someone else, you’re underpaid and overtaxed!

With one simple decision, you can start enjoying some the same tax benefits of the wealthy. How?

You start a profitable home-based business with Xooma Worldwide and qualify for many of the same tax-deductions wealthy business owners qualify for. Imagine being able to deduct expenses such as:

- Your vehicle
- Your home office
- Meals and entertainment
- Your travel and vacations
- And more...

Things you're already spending money on may instantly become tax-deductible items. And instead of spending tens of thousands of dollars or hundreds of thousands on a traditional business, you can get started in your own home-based business with us by simply placing your first product order.

Heck, having just one extra tax deduction this year could easily help you keep hundreds of extra dollars in your pocket at tax time. In fact, it’s probably costing you more money (in taxes) NOT to have a home-based business. So, why not say “yes” to the easiest and most rewarding home-based business on the planet – Xooma Worldwide.

Remember, I’m here to help you make money (and pay less taxes)!

Let’s get started. You can email at JimGras@tooaddsun.com

Or call me at 1-800-897-6458. (If you get my voicemail, leave a message with your phone number and I'll get back to you as soon as I am available.)

Respectfully,

Jim Gras

P.S. There are countless tax benefits available to you as a home-based business owner. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can start keeping more of your hard earned money in your pocket.

 

The Ten "secrets"

 
Here are the ten "secrets" to starting a wildly profitable Internet-based business in your spare time.
 
If you're serious about earning an extra income from a home-based business, then you must learn and apply these ten secrets today.
 
SECRET #1: Leverage your time.
 
You'll never get rich trading dollars for hours. The wealthy let their money and other people work for them to produce a profit.
 
You may only be able to work 10 hours a week, but you can leverage the work of 1,000 other people to create a 10,000 hour work week. That's the way to become wealthy. By the way, you can do this without ever hiring any employees.
 
SECRET #2: Use an automatic selling system.
 
Guess what? The number one reason people can't make it in business is they can't or don't like to sell. In fact, that used to be my problem as well.
 
The solution is to simply set up an automatic selling system where the lead generation, sifting, and selling is all done for you.
 
In fact, you can even have people trained in your business mostly on auto-pilot. Your job is simply to be there and be yourself.
 
SECRET #3: Don't Re-Invent the wheel.
 
Don't start from scratch. That's the hardest way to do anything. Inventors go through tons of frustration, failed tests, and often ridicule. I'd much rather be a copy-cat.
 
Find a system that's already working. Then just jump in and follow it.
 
This will save you thousands of dollars in wasted money and years of lost time.
 
Just do what already works.
 
SECRET #4: Find a personal coach.
 
Every top athlete has a coach. In fact, many of the best have two or three coaches. They're there for one reason...to help that person be the best they can possibly be. In some situations, they instruct. Other times they encourage. In it all, they work side-by-side with you on the way to success.
 
A coach will help you set your course. They'll help keep you on track. They'll take you from where you are today to where you want to be. The
 
only problem is that most business or marketing coaches cost $400 or more per month!
 
Keep reading and you'll find out how to get your own personal success coach...for FREE.
 
SECRET #5: Generate leads.
 
Lead generation is the biggest advantage in most businesses. We've found several ways to cut our leads costs to almost nothing. Using the Internet and a few strategies we'll reveal to you, you can get all the leads you'll ever need.
 
SECRET #6: Use tax advantages.
 
Starting your own home-based business gives you the advantage of tax benefits not available to the general public. For example, a portion of any money spent on your home can become a tax break. Your vehicles may also be tax deductible.
 
Your meals and entertainment could become a tax write-off. Your travel or vacations may be deductible too. You can put more money in a retirement fund without paying taxes on it. You can even pay your children as have it be a tax deductible expense.
 
Everyone should have a home business just to save on taxes!
 
SECRET #7: Avoid hype.
 
The claims of making a “$1,000,000 in the next 30 days for almost doing nothing” may sound good, but they come at a heavy cost. Too many people have fallen for this hype and have lost all sense of real business principles.
 
We can take you to where you're making $100, $500, or even $5,000 a month...But it usually won't happen overnight. It will also take some effort on your part. But, if you follow the simple system which has worked for me and so many other people, you will succeed.
 
SECRET #8: Join a Mastermind group.
 
One of the best success books of all time is, "Think and Grow Rich." If you don't own it, you should hop over to a bookstore and buy a copy today.
 
One of it's key principles is the Mastermind group. Every top leader and almost every millionaire takes part in a Mastermind group. By combining your talents and skills with others, you'll able to multiply everyone's efforts.
 
Every single person in the group becomes more successful as a result. I have my own Mastermind group and we are currently looking for a few more people if you're interested.
 
SECRET #9: Build a residual income.
 
Don't just sell a product one time. Find a way to earn a residual income from anything you sell. In other words, market something that people want and need and will use or consume regularly.
 
This is how you build real wealth. It isn't by selling a one-time item and finding a new customer for it every day. Work an hour today and earn an income forever.
 
Try telling that to your boss. Tell him or her you want to go to work tomorrow. Then you want them to pay you for the rest of the year. They'll laugh you right out of their office.
 
Yet, the wealthy do this everyday of their lives.
 
SECRET #10: Set goals.
 
Are you sailing through life right now without a plan? Most people live paycheck to paycheck all their lives. They hope Social Security or the Government or their family will take care of them when they get older. Not only is that a mistake, that’s no way to live. You have to make a plan today...or you'll end up in desperation tomorrow.
 
It's your choice. You can stay where you are right now in a never-ending spiral...or you can turn the corner and experience the money, lifestyle,and dreams you've always wanted.
 
You CAN make money on the Internet from home with our Company. I'll coach you all the way. I'll even open up my Mastermind group to let you benefit from everyone else's insight. However, the actual decision to get started can only be made by you.
 
So, are you serious about making money from home? If so, let’s get started. The sooner you contact me, the better your position will be in My organization.  Visit here for FREE REPORT - Anyone Can Be a Millionaire. . . . . .  If They just Use Their Head

Have you ever wished for something better in your life?

Have you ever wished for something better in your life?

If you’re like most people, you get up and go to work every morning whether you feel like it or not. Even if you hate your job chances are you’re still doing it every day. Why? Because if you don’t, the bills won’t get paid and your family will suffer, right?

Believe it or not, I know where you're coming from. I've worked my tail off at jobs I didn’t like only to make other people wealthy. All the while, my credit card bills were growing and it seemed like I was on an escalator going in the wrong direction. I just couldn’t get ahead!

Fortunately, the solution finally came to me. I realized that my destiny didn't lie in working hard to make someone else’s dreams come true. I knew that the only way to get ahead in this life and to live my dreams was I had to start working for myself – in my own business. Thanks to this opportunity, I’m doing that on a part-time basis and it feels great!

I now wake up every morning with excitement and enthusiasm because I’ve got a legitimate way out of the “rat race” lifestyle that so many people get stuck living in. Thanks to Xooma Worldwide, many things are starting to change for me. The good news is they can change for you too.

If you're on that same escalator going in the wrong direction, I’d like to help you make the positive change that I’ve made. I'll take you by the hand and lead you from where you are...to where you want to be.

This is your chance to work with a proven team of professionals who can help you escape the “rat race” of life. The best part is you can get started by simply placing your first order with us.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Jim Gras

P.S. If you’re finding it harder and harder to get up and go to your job every day, you’re not alone. If you don’t decide to make a change, chances are you’ll be in the same situation (or worse) a year from now. Let our team of business professionals help you make a positive change for your future. We’re just a phone call or email away.

Who is Jim Gras

Remarkable

The triumphs will be sweet and the regrets will sting. Take it all in, whatever it may be, and move on steadily ahead. Whatever experience life may bring your way, find in it something to value. Take that value and make the most of it as you apply it in a positive, purposeful direction. Concern yourself not with what is wrong, but with how you can make it better. Take pleasure not in what you have, but in what it can enable you to do. Let go of the envy, the anger and despair. Hold on to the love, the joy and the hope. In each ending, find the new beginning that is surely there. In each setback find the will to go forward, and use each success to create value that goes far beyond yourself. Appreciate every moment, whatever that moment may bring. And from those moments will come a remarkable life. Visit MIM Online Magazine

Details

It's extremely valuable when you're able to see the big picture, having risen far above the mundane details. Yet it is just as important to know and understand the nature of those details.

And for that, there is nothing that can replace actual hands-on experience. Most endeavors benefit from a competent manager, and managers become competent through intimate familiarity with what they're managing.

How can you direct someone to tend your garden if you're not regularly digging in the dirt yourself? How can you develop a successful customer service strategy if you're not regularly dealing with customer issues yourself?

If you consider yourself to be above the details, then those details will very likely bring you down at some point. Certainly delegate when you can, but be sure you know what you're delegating.

Modern life is complex, and no one can be expected to understand all of the intricate complexities. Yet by the same token, it is essential to grasp the fundamental details upon which your world depends.

Be willing to get your hands dirty with the details of life. And you'll be well equipped to make the big picture even brighter.

Some days it seems like you're spinning your wheels

Some days it seems like you're spinning your wheels and going nowhere. When those days come, the best thing you can do is to just keep spinning. If you give up and stop altogether, you're guaranteed to never get anywhere. Instead, keep spinning those wheels and you'll eventually start getting some traction.

Going slow is vastly better than not going at all. Although you might do no better than just staying even today, that puts you in position to move ahead first thing tomorrow.

In every frustration is the seed of opportunity. That opportunity is available to those who refuse to be discouraged even after moving sideways for a while.

Keep moving, and soon you'll start to move forward again. Check out our AMiGO Products and Team you'll be glad you did.

Choose to exceed expectations every chance you get.

You could cut corners and still get by. But why would you ever want to settle for merely getting by? You could do a little bit less than what's expected of you, and it will probably be okay. But with just a little bit of extra effort, you'll be able to deliver more than what's expected.

And when you consistently provide more than what's expected, you raise yourself to a whole new level of success. By doing just a little more than is necessary, you can achieve a great deal more than you otherwise would have.

Once you've done what must be done, that is the time to step forward and do a little bit more. For a modest amount of extra effort can produce a spectacular measure of additional gain.

Instead of being fixated on how little you can get by with, put your energy into discovering how much you can get done. Instead of slowing down when the finish line is in sight, speed up and take advantage of the opportunity to go far beyond it.

Choose to exceed expectations every chance you get. And you'll never have to worry about merely getting by.

It seems obvious and yet it's a powerful truth that's all too often overlooked. To stay focused you need something on which to focus -- something specific, something clear and well defined. Are you having trouble staying focused? Then perhaps you need to more clearly define the object of your focus. As an example, let's say you're attempting to focus on making more money. The vague goal of "making more money" is not clear enough nor definitive enough. Exactly how much more money do you intend to earn? Precisely how do you intend to earn it? What will you do with it when you get it, and why is that important to you? Questions such as these will provide you with a clear and specific object on which to focus. Focus is impossible without a focal point. Just the act itself of clearly and specifically defining that focal point will serve to lock your mind and your energy into focus. And when the object of your focus is well defined, you can quickly get back on track if your focus should happen to stray. Know, understand, and appreciate precisely where you desire to be focused. The more clearly you can define the object of your focus, the more intently and effectively you can focus upon it. Decide exactly what you intend to do, and almost as if by magic you'll find yourself actually getting it done. Jim Gras 800-897-6458 Mentor.Trainer A Few Minutes

There are good and valuable things you know you could be doing but you're not. There is a way of life you know you could be experiencing but you're not. This moment, as you read these words, is your opportunity to change all that. As you consider how truly special and precious your life is, this moment is when you can begin to fulfill your most treasured and valuable possibilities. Set aside just fifteen minutes and then spend that fifteen minutes getting started on whatever you've been putting off. It's easy to find just fifteen minutes, especially when you'll be using it for something positive, productive and fulfilling. Set a small, easily obtainable fifteen-minute goal, and then make the effort necessary to reach it. Then when you've reached it, delight in the feeling of accomplishment, delight in knowing that you're actually moving forward with something you've been meaning to do for a long time. After that, find another fifteen minutes and continue the process. Get yourself addicted to accomplishment and to the fulfillment which comes from moving steadily toward those things you truly value. Today is a perfect day to start living life on purpose, with purpose and with passion. Give just fifteen minutes to the best of your possibilities and let it be the start of something great. Jim Gras Mentor.Trainer 800-897-6458 MIM Online Magazine A Powerful Revolution Is About To take place

A Powerful Revolution Is About To take place Most people have absolutely no clue about the unstoppable force that is already on the way… There’s a massive revolution about to occur all across the world and those that truly understand it can get rich. In fact, this revolution has already begun, but in the next several years it’s going to change everything online. But those that ignore this revolution, or fail to understand it, will become merely a fraction of the success they could have become – or quite possibly go out of business altogether. Beyond the next 5 years, Internet Marketing will experience exponential chaos. Businesses marketing online will experience massive rates of failure. It will become nothing short of financial devastation for many. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, 95% of small businesses fail within the first 5 years. (i.e. 95 out of 100 fail – so only 5 actually survive.) In the not-so-distant future, because of the revolution already in motion, this figure will become more like 99% will fail within the first 5 years. The success rate will only be about 1 out of 100… and it will get worse as each year passes. Why? It’s rather simple actually. Until next time, Jim Gras Mentor.Trainer 800-897-6458 The Fastest Way to Build a Large Network Marketing Downline

Over the past decade, tens of millions of success-seeking Network Marketing distributors have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on Network Marketing “how-to” training books, tapes and magazines in an attempt to learn the “Secret” to Network Marketing financial success. They devour the information They memorize the entire book of wonderful Network Marketing clichés They revel in all the tantalizing “rags to riches” stories They do everything the books and tapes tell them to do And yet the sad truth is that less than 5% of them will ever build a large downline and consistently earn $7,500.00 or more in monthly income ($90,000.00+ per year) The question is: WHY is it that over 95% of all Network Marketing distributors fail in their attempt to achieve financial success in Network Marketing? The overwhelming majority of them fail because they recruited the wrong people and they apply the wrong strategies and tactics The Time-Proven Strategy of Network Marketing’s Top Earners The whole process of building a large Network Marketing downline and making $10,000 or more a month seems so easy to accomplish. And in theory it is. But unfortunately, the Network Marketing industry is overflowing with illogical theories and silly strategies that have proven themselves to be absolutely worthless. There is however, a single time-proven strategy that has repeatedly earned savvy distributors exceptionally large five-figure monthly incomes … incomes in excess of $10,000+ per month. It is simple and logical strategy of recruiting Network Marketing distributors into your downline. This strategy of recruiting Network Marketing distributors into your downline is so logical, so powerful, so effective, and so consistently proven, that it is the primary reason why virtually ALL brand new Network Marketing companies begin the downline-building process by recruiting some Heavy Hitters, because those Heavy Hitters more often than not, quickly build large downlines! And the strategy they use time and time again to build their downlines quickly, is recruiting experienced Network Marketing distributors. Rarely – if ever – do the Heavy Hitters quickly build large downlines and achieve Network Marketing financial success by requiting their “warm market” (family and friends) and/or “opportunity seekers” They do it by recruiting experienced distributors ! And if you copy their strategy, you can too! Jim Gras Mentor.Trainer 800-897-6458 Regret

Regret would be a wonderful thing if it came earlier. If you could feel the bitter sting of regret before making the choices that would cause that regret, you'd be powerfully persuaded to make better choices. The biggest regrets usually result from missed opportunities. Feeling those particular regrets early would encourage you to make the most of your possibilities. Yet in the real world, regret is experienced only after it's too late to avoid. Even so, there is something you can do to make regret a positive and powerful influence in your life. You can use your mind to imagine regret in advance. By doing so, you can benefit from regret's lessons without suffering from its pain. Before taking action, or before passing up an opportunity, travel in your mind into the future. Find the choice that would cause no regret, and then make that choice. By imagining your regrets far enough in advance, you can avoid them completely. And that's a strategy you'll never regret. Until next time, Jim Gras 800-897-6458 Create the Sense of Urgency

Most things that end up being urgent didn't start out that way. Most urgent matters, had they been addressed when they first came up, would not have to be rushed. Putting off a difficult task until later only makes it more difficult. To truly make your life easier, go ahead and take care of the hard stuff as early as you can. When you put off something that needs to be done, you don't get rid of it. You merely make it more burdensome than it otherwise would have been. Each time you procrastinate you deny yourself the opportunity to get the work done calmly and carefully, at a comfortable pace. Instead, you push the work to a time and place where it must be hurried. That ends up creating needless anxiety and reducing your effectiveness. The far better choice is to go ahead and get it done before the need for urgency sets in. What could you take care of today that would prevent you from having to deal with an urgent matter later? Go ahead, get it done, and bring more peace and positive purpose to your life. Until next time, Jim Gras 800-897-6458 MIM OnLine Feature Live Call!

If you run from the difficult challenges, they will pursue you unrelentingly. Yet when you turn to face them with resolve and commitment, not only will you get through them, you'll become stronger as a result. The challenges can indeed be disparaging and demoralizing, until you consider where you'll be when you get past them. Look to the other side and see the positive possibilities. There's no sense in looking back or wishing for the difficulties to go away. They're here and it's time to deal with them. You can do it. The ability to adapt to changing conditions and to prosper no matter what comes your way -- that's part of the very definition of life. You are gloriously alive, so act like it! The difficulties you face can be an excuse to give up, or they can be a reason to reach even higher, to become even better, to live even more fully. Rise to the challenge. It's your nature. It's your best choice. It's your destiny, waiting for you to give it life.

Regardless of how far behind you may be, you always can choose to move forward. Though people and events and circumstances may conspire against you, you can decide to move ahead anyway. Success depends on your direction, not on your position. No matter where you may be, it is always within your reach, and you can always begin to work for your own special success. It's perfectly okay to be where you are. Because from where you are, you can move steadily to wherever you desire to be. Sure, it's probably not the ideal situation, and yet it is a starting point. It's the starting point you have, and one from which you most certainly can move forward. It will happen because you decide to make it happen. It will happen because you'll do what's necessary to make it happen. This day, this place, this situation is your starting point. Now is your moment to reach as high as you care to reach. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't do it. Decide for yourself and start moving yourself positively there.

Though in some ways it might be nice to know with absolute certainty what will happen tomorrow, in many ways it is good not to know. For uncertainty compels us to develop courage, creativity, flexibility, commitment and initiative. If we knew in advance exactly how our lives would unfold, it would surely drain all the joy from the experience. The strengths and qualities we develop, and the experiences we gain as a result of uncertainty bring a richness to life that cannot be equaled. Though there are many uncertainties in life, there are also things of which you can be certain, things such as your family, your faith, your truest friends, your highest values. And those certainties indeed become strengthened to the degree that everything else is so uncertain. Though it can be frightening, uncomfortable, and even painful, the uncertainty in this world and in this life is also a blessing. It makes anything possible, and it gives even more meaning to those things of which you can be certain, those things which matter most.

Most of the things which seem to be impossible are not really impossible. As soon as you're able to look at those seemingly impossible things from a higher level of awareness, they suddenly become very possible indeed. Impossible is a concept which exists in your mind. And by expanding your thinking you can make possible those things which were once impossible for you. History is filled with the achievement of things which were once considered absolutely impossible. In your own life, there are things you thought you'd never do, or see, or become, that now you take for granted. What was once impossible for you can indeed become a reality. The reality will begin with your acceptance that it is possible. Once you get to the place where you know it is possible, it has already started to happen. Let your mind and spirit go above and beyond what seems impossible. You'll find that it can be done, and indeed you'll find that you are doing it.

If the things you desire are only for yourself, then what you accomplish will be empty and unfulfilling. Desire turned inward is nothing but greed, and will bring you nothing worth having. The greediest people are not those who desire too much. The greediest people are those who desire too little, who desire only for their own narrow, limited concerns. The more outwardly your desires are focused, the more fulfilling will the fruits of those desires be. What you desire for the world beyond you, for all of life itself, will bring the most lasting, fulfilling rewards. The person who solves his own small problems will receive some real value from his efforts. Yet when that person can make the same innovation available to others, the value that can be created is virtually unlimited. Desire can be a powerful force, so be sure to point it in a positive direction. The more your desire is focused beyond your own concerns, the further it will take you and your world. Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader! keywords: mentors in motion, mentor, mentor in motion, Jim Gras, Val Smyth, online training The Best

There is a world that you will soon come to know. There is a life that you will soon begin to live. There is a person whom you will one day become, and that day is fast approaching. Can you see it in your mind? Yes, you can see it even now. For the things you most consistently visualize today are what will define your reality tomorrow. Where your most sincere and abiding thoughts are now is where the rest of you will soon be. Whatever you can see most intensely in your mind's eye, you are already beginning to become. The choice you have is not whether to visualize, but what to visualize. For you are always visualizing something. So choose to see the best, in clear and rich detail. And let your most positive, brilliant vision guide you steadily there. Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader! Keywords: mentors in motion, mentor, mentor in motion, Jim Gras, Val Smyth, online training Control

Often it will occur that one part of you desires something that another, more enlightened part of you knows is not right for you. When this happens, it is helpful to remember that neither of those conflicting urges defines you. The mere fact that you're able to see the conflict within yourself means that you are also able to rise above that conflict. The fact that you're able to perceive what you're thinking and feeling means that the real you is beyond those thoughts and feelings. When you are longingly tempted to overindulge, or to become angry or resentful or hurtful, and yet you know it is not right for you, remember that you can take a step back. Step back to a place where you can look objectively and lovingly at the conflict within you. Being in such a vantage point, you can let yourself fully experience the desire without allowing that desire to take control of you. You can let that desire out in the open where it harmlessly burns itself out, and then be done with it and free to follow the course you know is right. Inner conflict can be difficult to resolve when you're stuck in the middle of it. So step back to the real you that exists apart from that conflict, where you can settle it peacefully and effectively. Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader!

How many things do you worry about, that don't really matter at all? Imagine the positive energy boost if you could simply let them go. Most of the things that annoy you do so only because you have chosen to be annoyed. Think of how life would be if you spent less time annoyed and more time truly living. When something comes along that troubles you, ask yourself if it really matters. You'll discover that many things really don't. When something pops up to worry you, ask yourself if your worrying will make it better. Chances are, with most things, it won't. Most worries and annoyances are completely worthless, and only serve to bring you down. Is that really what you want? Practice diverting more of your time and energy to positive, useful, productive pursuits. Replace the worry and annoyance about things that don't matter with real, effective action for the things that do. Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader!

Or are you the person who can work your way through whatever obstacles may confront you? Are you the shortcomings and disappointments you've known? Or are you the most magnificent, most treasured dreams you can imagine? Are you the empty, meaningless pursuits of the materialistic culture that surrounds you? Or are you the deeply held, lasting values you know to be truth? Who you think you are can make all the difference, in this moment, in your life.

Imagine that problems are no longer a problem for you. Imagine that the frustrations no longer frustrate you. Imagine that you are no longer limited by the limitations. Imagine that the obstacles no longer are able to hold you back. Now consider this. Your life is the way it is not because of what comes your way, but because of how you respond to it all. If you can truly imagine that the problems are no problem, that is the way it will be. If you can sincerely imagine that the obstacles cannot hold you back, they won't. Do you respond to the difficulties by making them even worse? Or do you choose to imagine yourself beyond them? The moment you imagine, it changes nothing except you. And yet, that is more than enough to completely change your world. So Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader!

There is nothing that feels quite so good as knowing that you've made a positive difference. There is nothing that energizes you in quite the same way as a real and valuable accomplishment. Take a situation that was unpleasant, unhealthy, dangerous or destructive, then turn it around, and you know you've really made a difference. Take a goal, a dream, a passion, then bring it to life, and that effort will in turn bring you to life. The next few moments, the next few days, the next few years can be spent just getting by, just keeping up. Or they can be used to get things done, to make a positive difference, to reach real and meaningful accomplishment. When you fall into bed after a day of focused, positive effort, you carry with you a sense of satisfaction that cannot be duplicated. And you wake the next morning to a brighter world. When you have the choice between making the effort and sitting on the sidelines, choose to make the effort. When you find yourself dismayed at how things are, find a way to make them better.

Every situation is a lesson to be learned. From the most mundane chores to the most complex projects, life is always ready to teach you something. Life is ready to teach when you are willing to learn. And the more you learn from what life offers, the better life becomes. The lessons are usually not all that obvious. Yet they are there if you will think to take a look. The lessons are there in every moment, in every dilemma, in every frustration and every joy. They are there in every sadness, every victory, every discomfort and every pleasure. Each lesson you learn paves the way for a new and even more valuable one. Each lesson you ignore keeps coming back, again and again. One way or another, life will teach you its lessons. When you're a willing student, those lessons are pure gold.

The big challenges get your attention. By virtue of their seriousness, they demand to be addressed. In fact, big serious challenges can be quite energizing and stimulating. They're often referred to as "wake- up calls." The smaller challenges, though, don't get as much respect or response. They're the ones we tend to let slide. The problem with that is that they accumulate. Those small challenges, never dealt with, can soon combine into a substantial burden. You keep piling stuff in the closet, just a little something every few days, and suddenly there's no space left. You keep putting off doing your expense report, day after day, and suddenly find that you have a whole quarter or year's worth to go through. The little challenges, though they're easy to forget about, can quickly add up and eventually hold you back in a big way. So make a point to deal with them as they come up, while they're still small and manageable. Not only will you become more disciplined and effective, you'll free yourself from their cumulative burden and be able to focus on the truly important things in your life.

When you attempt to get ahead at the expense of others, you'll be resisted every step of the way. Yet when you seek to get ahead by creating value for others, the world will happily push you forward. Rise above the crowd and then genuinely seek ways to bring the crowd along. It's a much more effective strategy than looking for ways to push everyone else down. There's only so much you can possibly take away from others, yet there is no limit to what you can create for yourself and the world around you. Those who win big can't do it by creating losers. In fact, those who win big do it by creating other winners. Those who win big do it not by fighting over what's already there, but by creating something that has never existed before. Losers look for ways to get away with stealing value from others. Winners know that the way to true abundance is to create as much value as possible for as many other people as possible. You can do it too, right now. It happens every day, and the whole world moves forward as a result. So do Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader! Keywords: mentors in motion, mentor, mentor in motion, Jim Gras, Val Smyth, online training Get it done!

Do what needs to be done. Say what needs to be said. Listen to the things you need to hear. Learn what you need to learn. Explain what you need to explain. Rather than constructing elaborate methods for avoiding these things, or elaborate excuses to evade them, just get them done. Instead of letting things slip and continue to weight you down, get them done and let your actions energize you. The avoidance of effort is just as difficult as effort itself yet avoidance accomplishes nothing positive. Success is not always easy, yet it is for the most part simple. The way to accomplishment is not hidden. It is in plain view. You can see what must be done. Stop fretting. Quit worrying. Don't complain. You know what you need to do.

Do you know what's going to happen tomorrow? Of course you cannot know for sure, yet with careful planning you'll have a much better idea. Do you ever find yourself wondering what to do next? With a good plan you'll spend less time wondering and more time doing. Have you ever made a trip to the store, forgotten to buy a certain item, and then had to go right back again? What if you lived 100 miles away from the nearest store? If that was the case, every time you traveled to the store you would carefully plan what to get, to avoid the need for an unnecessary trip. If you did forget something important, however, it would be possible to go back again. But it would be a lot of trouble, so you would learn to plan each trip very carefully. With that in mind, consider that you only have one chance to live each day. There's no way you can go back and live it again. So planning for it is even more important than planning a 200-mile round trip to the store. When you plan each day, and follow your plan, there's so much more you can get done. The time you spend planning will pay for itself many times over. Make a plan, follow it, and get the very most from each moment. Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader!

There is risk in any undertaking, and it is wise to minimize risk whenever possible. Yet to avoid risk completely is the greatest risk of all. When you move forward, there is always the possibility of defeat. Yet if you never move forward at all, then defeat is certain. There will always be plenty of excuses for standing still, for not taking action. But excuses offer no comfort or refuge when viewed in the unrelenting light of reality. What matters is what is done, what is undertaken and what is achieved. Courage is not the absence of fear. Those with the most courage also know the greatest fear. Courage is the determination to act in the face of fear, the ability to learn from fear, to be energized by fear, and to use that knowledge and that energy to move successfully through the fear. Action does not assure success, and yet directed, focused action is the only way to achieve success. We live and grow and prosper and find fulfillment because of the risks we have taken, because of the challenges we have accepted, because of the fears we have transcended. Life is a process of successfully dealing with uncertainty. Our bodies are designed for it, our minds are made for it, and our spirits are energized by the challenges of moving positively ahead, whatever the risks may be.

How is it possible to move confidently toward the future after experiencing a disappointing setback? By learning from that disappointment, and knowing that you can adjust your approach accordingly. If confidence resulted only from success, no one would ever have the confidence to reach success in the first place. In all confidence there is necessarily an element of faith. Certainly past successes can add to your confidence, but past disappointments do not have to erode that confidence. Because you have the wonderful ability to improve with each effort. You can make adjustments and apply the lessons you've learned through experience. Those valuable lessons are yours to use in a positive way no matter what has happened before. The powerful fact is that every experience can add to your confidence. The cheers and the sneers, the compliments and the complaints, the wins and the losses can all build confidence. Take the best from what has happened and add the best of what can be. Move positively forward with a realistic, well-founded, ever-increasing confidence.

What are you doing when you're not thinking about what you're doing? You're busy fulfilling the most sincere expectations you have for yourself. That's why your expectations are so important. They take control during the times when you lose yourself in whatever you're doing, and thus they exert a powerful influence. When you truly expect something, it's like programming your mind to seek it out every chance it gets. Expectations have a way of becoming reality even in the moments when you're not aware that you're making them happen. Your genuine expectations of others work in a similar fashion. The expectations you have for someone else are communicated to that person in a way that can easily override whatever you do or say on a conscious level. Real, ingrained expectations go beyond intentions, beyond pronouncements, beyond the surface, to a level that is deep and undeniable. Whatever you truly expect to happen, is very likely going to happen. So expect the very best, of yourself and of others, with sincerity, conviction and persistence. Almost as if by magic, it will come to be. Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader! Keywords: mentors in motion, mentor, mentor in motion, Jim Gras, Val Smyth, online training Proper aim!

Take a look around you, right this moment, and you'll see the results of your past priorities. Whatever has been most important to you, whatever has been the focus of your time and commitment, has come to pass. If you're satisfied and fulfilled by where you are, you know what it took to get there and you can continue cheerfully along the same path. If you're not completely pleased with the results of your past priorities, the first thing to do is change those priorities. Every moment of every day you are committed to something. When enough of those moments are focused on a particular priority, on a particular possibility, that possibility will come to life. Look at the possibilities that you've already brought to reality as the result of your focus and commitment. Whether you like the results or not, the fact is that you've definitely achieved results. The question now is, what results would you like to achieve next? Aim your focus, aim your commitment, aim your priorities, aim the efforts of each moment in the direction of those results, and they will most certainly happen. With persistence, you will surely get where you intend to go. Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader!

When you've attempted something and failed to achieve it, then made another attempt and failed yet again, and then failed even one more time, it can indeed be overwhelmingly disheartening. It is at that point, however, where persistence can be truly golden. Because each disappointment you experience not only brings you more knowledge of what works and what doesn't, it also serves as a powerful reminder of why you truly desire to succeed. It would be a shame to waste all that motivation and knowledge. So keep going. Persist in what you know you must accomplish. Experience the power of your disappointment, direct it toward persistence, and you'll make it a force that will move you along. The time and effort you've invested have already begun to pay off, even though the results have so far been disappointing. You certainly don't want to walk away from that investment before you're able to reap its rewards. Persist. Keep up the effort for as long as it takes. You're making positive progress. You're moving in the direction of your goals. Use what you've learned, use what you've experienced. Adjust course a little if necessary. Keep on moving, regardless of what has happened before. With persistence, you will surely get where you intend to go. Why be a Follower, When YOU can become a Leader!
