It’s All Your Fault

Posted by on Mar 15, 2008 in General | 4 comments

A few weeks ago at Russell Brunson’s 12 Month Internet Millionaire, one of the speakers said something to the effect of: if you are not successful it’s all your fault. This implies that you have control over your future, meaning that if you really are not successful you have the control to change it. Success doesn’t happen immediately but by taking control of your life and taking the actions necessary to become successful, you will become successful. Sure, you may encounter circumstances in your life that may slow you down,...

While browsing through my unpublished blog drafts I came across the results of a personality test which I apparently had planned on commenting on and publishing as a blog post. I decided to do some research and find out the source of the test, so I can share it with you in case you wanted to try it yourself. The test was the entrepreneurial personality test by The Entrepreneur Next Door. Below are my results: Overall Score = 76 Drive to succeed = 74 Social network = 72 Outlook on success = 79 Openness to new ideas =...

Blocking FaceBook Apps

Posted by on Feb 19, 2008 in Facebook, Social Media | 1 comment

I am now blocking all Facebook apps to which I am invited. The reason for this is that I was getting way more invites than I cared to deal with, most of which I was rejecting anyway. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Facebook’s open platform, and still use many facebook apps on a daily basis. What I have a problem with is the amount of inviting that is going on. The Problem Too many applications seem to push users into inviting their friends in order to gain access to certain areas or to receive incentives. The problem with...

Some Inspiration from Dr. Seuss

Posted by on Feb 10, 2008 in General | 1 comment

I love the book Oh, The Places You’ll Go, by Dr. Seuss. It seems to well represent the way I look at life—a journey where one should look forward to the experiences one will encounter, and even take action to seek out new experiences. I like the message it conveys that in life there are no guarantees and despite one’s ambition and confidence, one will still fail at times when striving to excel, even after experiencing great success and having been “on top”. Failure isn’t the end, however. One can always just...

The Whopper Freakout: Burger King’s Latest Marketing Campaign

Posted by on Dec 13, 2007 in Social Proof, Viral Marketing | 4 comments

I am impressed with Burger Kings latest marketing campaign, which combines both Television and the Internet advertising, and includes elements of viral marketing and social proof. Their TV commercial shows a few clips of people’s reaction to being told that the Whopper has been discontinued (the social proof element of the campaign). Then a website URL, http://www.whopperfreakout.com, is displayed. The website just contains a video that is basically just a longer version of the TV commercial, but is entertaining enough that people would...

Is it possible to outsource too much?

Posted by on Dec 9, 2007 in Outsourcing | 3 comments

Report: Many U.S. Parents Outsourcing Child Care Overseas Outsourcing it a growing trend, especially among internet marketers, and it is not just business outsourcing anymore. People have even begun to outsource elements of their personal life. Outsourcing makes sense. If your time is worth $X/hr., why waste valuable time doing something that can be outsourced for just a fraction of $X/hr. When you begin to outsource your time is freed up to focus on more important matters, but is there a point where outsourcing more tasks doesn’t make...

Google’s New Acquisition: Jaiku

Posted by on Oct 11, 2007 in Google, Twitter | 1 comment

Google’s latest acquisition is the popular twitter-like site Jaiku. I am a user of both Twitter and Jaiku and have enjoyed participating on both sites. Although Twitter has been the most popular micro-blogging site, this news from Google may eventually change that, or at least bring greater growth to Jaiku and put it in the limelight for the moment. I thought the following quote from the Google Blog regarding the acquisition was pretty interesting… Technology has made staying in touch with your friends and family both easier and...
