Don’t Waste a Crisis. Here’s How.

Sharing is caring…At some point in project delivery, either in your own project or when working for a client, you will experience a moment of “Oh $£!*, what now?!”. While everyone else around you loses their heads, this is where you leap in to save the day. You need clarity of thought. You need confidence.…

They’ve indicated that sites running SSL will have a better ranking signal. Whilst this…

Sharing is caring…One of life’s skills is learning from your mistakes. Try these quotes on for size to give context: While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior. ~Henry C. Link An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made…

What’s a MOOC?

Sharing is caring…The joy of internet marketing is that it gives you the ability to pursue interests. It bolsters or replaces your income and frees up your most valuable commodity: time. How you spend your time is obviously the choice you want to be left with. Rather than spending time, though, isn’t it better to…

How not to fail…

Sharing is caring…So, we’ve talked about focus. That’s an easy concept to grasp but a difficult mechanic to apply. Just how do you focus? If I’ve learned one thing about delivery; be that content, information products, software or major IT projects, it’s this: plan. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. A good…

How to make money online

Sharing is caring… I am often asked about how I would start with internet marketing if I had to start again from scratch. Let’s be very clear: it wouldn’t be by buying every single product that some guru put in front of me! I’ve been there and you might be there now too! In a previous post,…

Sleepless nights?

Sharing is caring…I hope you’re having a great day! Mine’s better now but what a night last night! I’ve been working really hard on a new project the past couple of weeks and I was pretty tired when I put out the lights last night – but my brain was still whirring. How to solve x, how to do y; you know how it goes! Then I remembered a favourite quote: “Every adversity carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit” Who said that and why is it important? (Don’t go Google it, I’m about to tell you!) I flicked the light back on and picked up a favourite book. It re-energises me every time so thought I’d share it with you. Napoleon Hill. That’s the guy whose quote is above. What relevance does it have here? It’s very simple. Belief. Learning. Tenacity. The biggest mistake you can make is giving up. Nothing has ever been achieved by giving up. Take the stuff that hasn’t worked, analyse it, learn from it and do something different next. They always say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome! SO I went at my challenges from a slightly different angle and hey presto! Fixed! Does this sound like something that could help you? If you haven’t read any of Napoleon Hill’s work then I strongly suggest that you do. I’m not going to send you an affiliate link, just go look him up on Amazon! Pick up Think and Grow Rich and give it a whirl. Written in the 1930s, it’s one of the best examples of content curation you’ll ever see! It is as relevant now as it was then. I give this man credit for putting my mind into the right gear and getting going on the path to success. And then helping me find my focus again when I need to. If there is one thing in the IM space that irritates the hell out of me it’s the misinformation, scare-mongering and flat out lies that the “gurus” tell. Don’t get me wrong, there are some great people out there who truly get what people want. They are the minority though in an ever expanding pool of misinformation peddlers. What do people want? It’s good old fashioned honest advice and support. Consider this recommendation one from the heart and see where it takes you! I’ll continue to pose great recommendations but feel free…

Welcome to my new blog!

Sharing is caring…Hi and welcome to my new blog. In 2014 I’m going to take a business from scratch and build an online income with it. Why? Well, because the freedom that it represents is something that is absolutely achievable by anyone. That doesn’t mean it won’t be hard work but it will be worth…
