….Diamonds or Dogs?
Decisions, decisions….feel paralyzed sometimes, just can't seem to get off dead center? A lesson with much decision making humor below…Watch it!
Stepping out and taking action on something new, something you have never done before, something you want to do but are not sure how to do takes courage. It takes belief in yourself, determination and self confidence. Don't let anyone one derail you from your dreams, not friends, not family members, and most certainly not strangers. It takes courage and as Abraham says…"It's up to you, and only you." Cowardly Lion: Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot? What have they got that I ain't got? Dorothy: Courage! Courage Video: Lions and Tigers and Bears..Oh My!
Those who continue to refer to this business model as a pyramid are light years behind the eight ball.
According Mad Money Jim Cramer the Direct Selling model is a great model that is in a “Tremendous Bull Market Mode.”
So why do so many people fail in this industry? It could be the same reason so many fail in their attempt to sell Real Estate. Having been in the Real Estate Industry for 25 years, I’ve witnessed the same same high percentage of failure. Once homes have been sold to friends and families the new real estate business owner quits and says it doesn’t work.
Both industries work and work well for those with an unstoppable desire to succeed and the tenacity of a bull dog. If one person has succeeded in the industry than it works. If it works for one it will work for you. All you have to do is make the decision. Make the decision you will Do What Ever It Takes to Succeed.
Watch the video below see what Mad Money Cramer has to say!
We all have those days in our business when it seems like more goes wrong then right. Those days we feel like we are the only business leader struggling. We have our own private pity party for about 2 minutes. Then our resolute mindset takes front and center and our inner voice speaks loud and clear……
Just Do It!
Do you enjoy uploading videos that you made to the YouTube website? If so, you may be pleased with all of the traffic that you get. YouTube is known to get thousands of visitors a day. For you, this means that your YouTube videos may be watched by thousands of people or more! As much traffic as YouTube brings you and your videos, you may be looking for more. If you are, you will want to examine other ways to market your YouTube videos. Just a few of the many marketing approaches that you can take are outlined below.
Perhaps, the easiest way to market your YouTube videos is to let friends, family members, or coworkers know that you have videos available for viewing on YouTube. For the best chance of success, you are advised to email the direct links for your YouTube videos to those that you know. If you just happen to mention having your videos on YouTube to a friend in passing, let them know what your videos are about or what your YouTube screen name is. YouTube allows site visitors to browse through all of their videos or search for something in particular, like one of your videos.
Another one of the many ways that you can market your YouTube video is by having any of your videos appear on any websites or blogs that you have. What is nice about YouTube is that you can easily get a few HTML codes. Those codes will enable you or any other internet users to post a YouTube video online. It is not uncommon for bloggers to insert a YouTube video in their blog, by using generated HTML codes. It is advised that you post your own YouTube videos on your own websites, but if you know of anyone else who has a blog, you may want to think about giving them the needed HTML codes to have your YouTube video appear on their blog. In most cases, you will find that even strangers are willing to do so, as long as your YouTube video is connected, in one way or another, to their blog or website.
You can also market your YouTube videos on online message boards. Online message board marketing can be done two different ways. For instance, there are a large number of online message boards that let you discuss of share anything, in general, with other board members. You may want to think about posting links to some of your YouTube videos, especially if you think the other members would enjoy watching them. If you belong to an online message board or forum that allows you to have a signature, you will want to look into doing so. Your signature will always appear at the end of each of your messages; therefore, the more active you are online, the more exposure your YouTube videos are likely to get.
Now that you know a few ways that you can go about marketing your YouTube videos to other internet users, you may be wondering exactly why you should. As it was mentioned above, YouTube, alone, is likely to generate thousands of viewers for your videos. If you are looking for more views, whether just to increase your online popularity or to help you get new clients, if you connect your YouTube videos to your business somehow, you will want to take the time to market your YouTube videos. What is nice is that you have a number of different methods available, including the three mentioned above, and most are free. In fact, marketing your YouTube videos to other internet users isn’t only free, but it is easy to. Many marketing tactics will only take up a few minutes of your time, if even that.
The decision as to whether or not you want further market your YouTube videos is yours to make. If you find yourself unsatisfied or unhappy with your current YouTube viewer ship, you may want to think about doing a little bit of your own marketing.

Making a fan page on facebook is a simple process. Fan pages can be used for business and pleasure; make a fan page for fun or as a marketing tool for your business. Fan Pages are often referred to as Business Pages.
To create a Facebook fan page you must first have a Facebook profile and be logged in. Information regarding your page should also be to hand – content, images etc.
Think about the title for your fan page – this is very important as Facebook will NOT let you change it. Take your time and pick your title carefully as this is what people will see when searching for your page and it is also what Facebook uses when searching for your fan page.
An eye-catching image is a must. This will draw users to your fan page. I feel a square image is best as Facebook will frame your image and crop it into a square icon. It is this square icon that will show in the news stream.
Now you are ready to create your fan page. Click on the link “Ads and Pages” link on the left side of your home page and then on the “Create Page”. Select the category of the page and the title you thought of earlier - I would advise on clicking the “Do not make Page publicly visible at this time.” until you get your page looking just the way you want.
This is your page created. Editing the information is very similar to your normal facebook profile. Make sure you add your image and information about your page before you publish and start promoting. No one will become a fan of a fan page that is empty!
Customizing your fan page design is more complex and requires FBML & HTML knowledge however it is worth considering if you are serious about getting your brand image across!
Now invite all your friends to become fans – all of them (the more fans the better!)
