I am working with a benefits company, a broker and an Employer Assistance company in a joint project.
I am wanting to promote this program to businesses in my state and even surrounding states, but not across the nation. At least not yet do to licensing and distance constraints.
I have a website. In the past for local promotion I used business…[Read more]
I did go blind in 2011 after my last mission trip to Africa. The dehydration pulled the retina and clouded the vitreous fluid in my eyes. The first surgery was a disaster and I was soon black as night blind in one eye as almost the entire retina came loose and still couldn’t see much out of the other eye. Two more surgeries that year saved the eye…[Read more]
Hope you are better now Bruce.
I guess I cope by fighting it.
Illness can be pretty brutal and at best limits you and at worst shuts you down. Last year I had three eye surgeries and with activity restrictions I lost a lot of productivity, not to mention physical fitness as I gained a few pounds. This year I had a week with a bad stomach bug,…[Read more]
Scott Hogue replied to the topic Building an IM Business is HARD WORK and this rant is about that . . . in the forum Ask Anything 3 years, 2 months ago
Tell it like it is Sean. Then let’s face it and get things done!
It really isn’t hard things we do (try digging ditches), it is just hard to do those things consistently and with interruptions when you may not always (actually pretty seldom) have a clear road to success laid out for you.
Just do it!
I have a cold, then do it
The rent is due,…[Read more]
About three years ago, I bought a van in Bowling Green KY. I spent the night with my oldest son and his wife there. We went out to eat with his inlaws (one of which has since died), picked up the van, spent the night, went to revival meeting the next day at my home town Church nearby.
At that time I was still drinking Pepsi.
He had bought a six…[Read more]
Scott Hogue replied to the topic What would it take for YOU to get 1000 new subscribers from facebook in 90 days? in the forum Ask Anything 3 years, 2 months ago
I first read this on my phone and didn’t see the 90 days part and assumed it was a month, which added to the What??? factor.
Still, 90 days seems like a tall order, but I think it is great to ask these “what if” questions, they often lead to breakthroughs.
If the average independent marketer could do this and the subscribers be in alignment with…[Read more]
I was trained years ago to do TOP exercises (Thinking On Paper) and although I use a computer now I still find it helpful to get things out of your mind where you can work on them and then put them back in your mind in a better organized manner.
I am going to share some TOP efforts and results here for comments.
Sean recently sent out some…[Read more]
I like the idea of minimalism, just not much of it.
-The Comic Relief Department
What really is Minimalism? I think it means some very different things to different people.
There is this movement that says to be a Minimalist you have to own 100 things or less. To me that sounds more like a game than a lifestyle. What 100 things? It is a bit…[Read more]
I feel for you. I guess I am out about a half million now because a man decided to start drinking before he took his step children to school and hit my wife and daughter. They are much more valuable than the money, but if I had not had the money they would have got the best care charity could have provided. That is far from the best care…[Read more]
Just walking out the door, I will check for your email.
I don’t get the flow. I think I need a flow chart on how facebook works and how things are connected. How do you get 50 likes from India when you aren’t even advertising?
I see things pop up on my page and before I can read them they disappear. What is that about?
I did advertise for…[Read more]
I remember you made some comments on helping people in third world countries. You had some ideas, were working on a few things. I seem to be growing in popularity in India (which I am not sure you could call a third world country anymore, they are becoming more and more advanced, I saw where some areas have more cell phones than people) I don’t…[Read more]
I may talk about the weather on my home and personal facebook page, but I always do a quote, suggestion, news bit or outline to a goal on my business facebook page. Sometimes I post to my blog or create an article for my website and then link to it on my facebook page.
I wonder if from the business facebook page they can find my personal page. If…[Read more]
Yes. To answer in general.
There is an old saying that an hour of sleep before midnight is worth two after midnight.
I am inclined to agree with that.
If I should go to bed at 9 pm (the wife away or what not) I usually wake up at 4 or 5 and reasonably refreshed. Unfortunately I may not be home by 9 pm or finished with my work. The wife is a bit…[Read more]
I made a post to my business facebook page today and in about two hours I see 13 people reached, one share and one like. I didn’t pay to boost it. Not sure if people reached means people read it or what, but interesting…
Sean says…Information is getting to the place where it is free on the internet, you can find nearly anything on the internet for free if you look long enough, but transformation is not.
The money is in helping people transform their lives.
The real value is in changing people’s lives.
Bruce, I think you are on track here. I also think we often neglect the goose that lays the golden eggs, in this case us, ourselves.
If we want to perform our best, be it physically or creatively we must take care of ourselves physically and emotionally.
I am wearing tracker watches and bands now to find some areas to improve. I didn’t think I…[Read more]
I am going to make a quote here:
Planning works poorly, but better than any other option we have.
My plans usually go out the window by 10 am. In management training I was taught that good planning time returned at least a ten fold return on investment. The problem is most project style plans are like links in a chain, steps that require each…[Read more]
