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. In my constant search for great information, I have come across many a blog that offered interesting information, yet was lacking in one very important thing. […]

Stuck In The Employee Trap?

For some, working a 9 to 5 job their entire life is ideal. There are plenty of people out there who need the structure of a traditional job. While there is nothing wrong with this, I personally have an enormous problem with it. You see, I am one of those people who does not like to be […]

10 Reasons to Escape The Cubicle

Call  me crazy, but I don’t see how anyone can tolerate a sit-on-your-ass all day desk job. It blows my mind how people (my boss included) can literally sit in front of a computer and stare it for 8 straight hours. If I’m at my desk for more than an hour, I start to go […]

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 […]

Success Secrets of 28 Pro Bloggers

I probably should have written this post when I actually published my free eBook, Success Secrets Of 28 Professional Bloggers, a week ago, but hey, I’m still trying to figure all this stuff out. Actually, I wouldn’t even have thought to write about it at all, but I got an email from Chris Guthrie suggesting […]

5 Job Burn Out Symptoms

Work is a part of life. A HUGE part of life! We will spend more time working a job than doing anything else over the course of a lifetime. Given that we will spend upwards of 90,000 hours in a job, hopefully that we at least enjoy, it makes perfect sense that we would get […]
