How to Remember & Use What You Read

You read a book and a week later you hardly remember a thing.

How to Remember and Use What You Read

You watch a video and a day later it’s lost from your memory…

The fix? Always write down your three biggest takeaways from anything nonfiction that you read or watch.

Keep a notebook or file just for this purpose. Review it often. And put those three things to work in your life as soon as you possibly can.

The world’s wisdom and secrets is at your fingertips inside books old and new. Many of the world’s greatest teachers and successful people share their secrets and strategies inside the pages of a book.

When you read for learning, you are only moments away from discovering some new information that can change the course of your life in new and better directions.

But you must take action.

And you must REMEMBER the insights that really matter.

5 Myths about Affiliate Marketing

Bad information keeps many people from making money online.

5 Myths about Affiliate Marketing

People give a half-hearted effort to one form of marketing, get disappointed that it didn’t work, and then cry out to the world that it no longer works…

How many times have you seen one of these headlines:

“Email Marketing Is Dead!”

“SEO No Longer Works Thanks to Google…”

“Content Marketing Has Lost Its Luster…”

Or the big one:

Affiliate Marketing Is for Scammers!

When something is proclaimed dead or not working any longer, it’s probably because someone was gaming the system and the system owners plugged the hole.

Ethical marketing always works in the long run.

That’s why Affiliate Marketing has worked for decades and will continue to work for the non-scammers of the world.

But the headlines persist, and the myths and misc

Jack Daniels and Frank Sinatra – Leveraging the Power of Endorsements

In 1955, Jack Daniels wasn’t the bestselling whiskey in the world. In fact, most people had never even heard of Jack Daniels. It was a small, regional brand selling just 150,000 cases annually of its black labeled Tennessee whiskey.

Jack Daniels and Frank Sinatra - Leveraging the Power of Endorsements

But by the end of 1956, sales had doubled and there was a Jack Daniels shortage. Demand in the U.S. for the whiskey steadily increased at such a high rate, the distillery wouldn’t have enough product to export to other countries for almost two decades.

So what changed? One tiny little sentence uttered onstage by just the right person – Frank Sinatra.

Frank brought a glass onstage and uttered this line: “Ladies and gentlemen, this is Jack Daniel’s, and it’s the nectar of the gods.”

Here’s what we know:

One endorsement from the right person and your product can

7 Steps to Write Better, Faster and More

Would you like to write a great blog post or email in half the time without losing quality – and perhaps even make your content better in the process?

7 Steps to Write Better, Faster and More

Here’s how you can start writing better, faster and more:

1: Create an outline. Your outline is your plan, and it’s going to make your entire task easier for 3 reasons:

Having a plan diffuses procrastination. When we look at a project our mind tells us it’s big – too big. This causes stress, which makes us want to avoid the whole thing. By having a plan, we can break the writing down into manageable, stress free steps.

Having a plan keeps you from wandering off topic. If you have a simple outline to follow, it’s just a matter of filling out each section of the outline. But without a plan, you could waste a great deal of time writing about thi

3 Steps to Change Your Business Mindset

If you have the right mindset, then everything else will work itself out. But if you have the wrong mindset, nothing else will work.

3 Steps to Changing Your Business Mindset

Here’s how to get your head on straight:

1: Trust your own ideas and strengths.

Stop comparing yourself, stop second guessing yourself and stand behind your own ideas and decisions.

2: Know your worth. Charge accordingly.

Dan Kennedy suggests that every business owner immediately raise their rates or prices.

You’ll get better customers and clients who appreciate you, fewer headaches and more revenue. So go ahead and give yourself a raise.

3: Realize you can’t do it alone.

Whatever ‘it’ is, you need help. Focus on the ideas, make the decisions, do the parts you’re good at and outsource everything else. You’ll stay sane and

Marketing Lessons Learned From Psychopaths

In my never ending search for ways to better appeal to my audience, I sometimes venture into the dark recesses of the human psyche so that I might better understand my customers and even myself.

Marketing Lessons Learned From Psychopaths

I’m not picking on psychopaths here. Nor am I villainizing them. As I understand it, psychopaths are born the way they are – it’s not a choice.

A psychopath is generally someone who feels little or no real emotion, and instead has to fake it. They might lie a great deal. They have an inflated sense of self-worth. They use superficial charm and glibness to manipulate and con others. They lack remorse, guilt or empathy. And they constantly are in need of new stimulation.

About 1 out of 100 people are psychopaths. Odds are you know at least one, yet you might not realize it. Remember, most of them are not killers as the media might portray the

“I don’t have the confidence to ___”

Fill in the blank. What is it you don’t have enough confidence for? Calling potential JV’s or business people on the phone? Making your own product? Starting your own business?

Confidence and Courage

Confidence comes from doing something over and over again until you get good at it.

When you’re doing something new, you don’t need confidence.

You need courage.

So get the courage and just go do it, and the confidence will follow.

More than needing confidence that you can succeed in a home business, you need the courage to dive in and get started. It’s only once you’re in the arena, taking action toward your goals that you will gain the knowledge, experience and results needed to acquire an unshakeable confidence that will increase your success in anything you set your mind to.

Then read their posts, listen to their podcasts and consume everything they put online.
