20 Simple Ways To Turn Your Bad Day Into A Great Day

If you haven’t noticed already, I tend to be a somewhat cynical and morose writer. That just comes from living the grind for so many years. I write from the heart and evidently my heart is filled with darkness and misery. If you struggle with the day to day grind of life, you know how […]

Beyond Bored Straight

If you’ve never seen the television series, Beyond Scared Straight, it’s about troubled teens being sent into maximum security prisons to get a taste of what they have to look forward to if they continue on their current path in life. They then proceed to shit their pants and cry for mommy. This article is […]

How To Stand Out In The Online World Of Average

As bloggers, Internet marketers, and online entrepreneurs, our platform is our websites. Everything we do revolves around the images we portray and the messages we send to the public. If our goal is to create a profitable business, we need to make sure our message is strong and clear. Without those things, we will surely become […]

I Love The Smell Of Comments In The Morning

(OK, the picture has nothing to do with comments, but I couldn’t resist! Gotta love Apocalypse Now!) I admit it, I am a comment junkie. It’s not that I get a lot of comments, because I don’t. But when I do, it makes my day! I don’t know if most or all bloggers feel the […]

Why Your Personality Is Killing Your Blog

Our blogs are distinct representations of us, in every sense of the word. They tell the world what we’re like, what’s on our minds, and what are goals are.

10 Reasons to Escape The Cubicle

The 7 Habits Of Highly Miserable People

We have all heard about or read Stephen R. Covey’s best seller “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People“. This is a fantastic book on personal growth, empowerment, and self-mastery. What you haven’t heard about is Stephen R. Roy’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Miserable People“. Well, now you have… Even though Covey’s book has been read […]

Why Job Security Is Complete Bullshit

If you asked 1,000 people to sum up in a single word what a typical job with health benefits, paid vacations, and a 401(k) retirement plan means to them, they will most likely answer ‘security’. I would have answered this question the exact same way a few years ago. We are taught to go to school, get good grades, go to college, and […]

Make Your Passion Pay You

I love the saying “make your passion pay you”. It represents my whole outlook on life. Its meaning is simple: find what you love to do and turn it into an income producing job or business. What I don’t understand is how so many people can go through their entire lives doing something they don’t […]
