Invest Better By Deleting All Investment News

I just got off the phone with a new client that said, “investing is crazy complicated, I can’t keep up with the news, the numbers and all the terms, there’s just too much new stuff happening every day and I don’t have time.” I said to him, you’re right. There is a lot of numbers and news and technology that constantly feeds information to you about the markets. BUT if you’re paying attention, this one minute email will save you a decade of stress and frustration. If you believe protecting and growing your money is about more information and faster information and better devices to deliver that information to you AND that you must keep up with the latest ‘bit of info’ then you will for sure be in a constant state of overwhelmed. AND you will never actually be able to make a smart decision about your money consistently. …

Changing Multiple Online News Feeds - Varying Rates of Speed and Viewer Attention Spans

It seems that those that run the financial cable television news each day are finding new ways to keep the humans entertained and watching their show. When they go into a station break there are all sorts of graphics which pop up, along with the common sound themes. Their branding is absolutely brilliant, and I know this because it is something that I study. Further, lately I’ve been noticing all the different newsfeeds which come across the screen.
There will be one at the bottom with all the stock market quotes, one at the top which shows the price of oil, gold, the stock market, and the bond yields. Then there will be the occasional news alert which comes across at a different speed from a different direction than all the rest. It seems that these stations have learned the same secrets to keeping the attention span of the human …

4 Great Ways to Use Facebook to Market Your Kindle Book

Amazon’s Kindle platform has, in the last few years, caused what can only be described as a revolution in the world of publishing.
These pioneers of publishing, however, often find that without the backing of a traditional publisher – and the agents and publicists that come with them – it’s extremely difficult to get the word out about a new book. The readers are there, and they’re looking for new authors, but the marketplace is still crowded with established bestsellers who have a direct line to the eyes and ears of readers.
This is where social media comes in. Promoting your book with Facebook advertising is one of the best ways to use the power of social networks to spread the word about your work. While you can’t grab yourself a high profile review in a national newspaper or win a coveted display in the window of your local bookstore, …

Preserve Your Assets

For decades we’ve been made to believe that Economics is a “science” that should be handled by a handful of intellectuals. After all, we shouldn’t worry much about the details! We should leave those in the hands of those that have the ability to analyze and make decisions. All too often I hear about the idea that man-made economics is far better than the free market economics. It’s been now more than 60 years that our economy had used the Keynesian man-made approach but does it really work? I wonder if man – as smart as he is – recognizes that sometimes the universe is bigger and more powerful than he is.
Reality is that economics directly affects our lives. Just because we never lived to experience an economic depression doesn’t mean we’re immune from such crises. The good news is that we can do something about it. All it …

Make Your Networking Count! Relationship First, Business Second

Last week I was the MC and the motivational speaker for a MEGA Networking event. I had the opportunity to watch more than 100 people spend more than four hours making connections, exchanging business cards and learning about each others’ businesses.
Each person left that day with at least 80 or so business cards, and a whole lot of opportunity to build their network. In fact, I am sure that more than one person left that room feeling a little more than overwhelmed. I mean, how great that you made so many connections, but now what? How do you make your networking count?
To get the most out of networking you need to follow these simple rules:
1. Know Your Criteria — You meet a whole room full of people, you make great connections and now you have a stack of business cards thicker than a triple-decker sandwich. What are …

Internet Marketing News - Brad Gosse Blows The Lid Off IM

It’s not often that I read something that makes me smile anymore. At least not when it comes to Internet marketing. But the other day, I read a PDF created by Brad Gosse, who just may be one of the smartest Internet marketers on the planet, that had me grinning from ear to ear. In this article, I’m going to give you the five cent tour of what he wrote. I’m still grinning.
Okay, the name of the report is called Bubble Manifesto. Yeah, me too. I saw the title and thought to myself, “huh?” What does this mean? It certainly DID get my attention. But what REALLY got my attention was how the PDF was formatted. It wasn’t the usual drab mountains of text that make up most PDFs. There were some really neat illustrations in it. Actually, they were more like the kind of things you’d see in …
