To attract attractive people, you must be
To attract powerful people, you must be powerful.
To attract committed people, you must be
committed. Instead of going to work on them, you
go to work on yourself.
If you become, you can attract.

We can have more than we've got because we can
become more than we are.

possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does
to the human spirit to maximize your human potential
and stretch yourself to the limit.

Pity the man who inherits a million dollars and

pitiful: If your revenue grew and you didn't.

The most important question to ask on the job is not
"What am I getting?" The most important question to
ask on the job is "What am I becoming?"

It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained
through personal development.

After you become a millionaire, you can give all of
your money away because what's important is not

What you become directly influences what you get.

The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes
of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will
always be the far greater value than what you get.

When Andrew Carnegie died, they discovered a
sheet of paper upon which he had written one of
the major goals of his life: to spend the first half
of his life accumulating money and to spend the
last half of his life giving it all away. And he did!

Some people are disturbed by those tough days because
all they have is the days. They haven't designed or
described or defined the future.

Goals. There's no telling what you can do when you get
inspired by them. There's no telling what you can do
when you believe in them. And there's no telling what
will happen when you act upon them.

We all need lots of powerful long-range goals to help us
past the short-term obstacles.

The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice
you to become the person it takes to achieve

Don't set your goals too low. If you don't need much,
you won't become much.

If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to
work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan
will go to work on you.

We all have two choices: We can make a living or
we can design a life.

Here's what is exciting about sharing ideas with others:
If you share a new idea with ten people, they get to
hear it once and you get to hear it ten times.

Sharing makes you bigger than you are. The more
you pour out, the more life will be able to pour in.

Somebody says, "Well, I can't be concerned about other
people. About the best I can do is to take care of
myself." Well, then you will always be poor.

What you give becomes an investment that will
return to you multiplied at some point in the

When somebody shares, everybody wins.

The amount you give isn't important. What matters is
what that amount represents in terms of your life.

Only by giving are you able to receive more than you
already have.

Best Headlines of 2004

We all know that bad news and tragedy make headlines,
so once in a while it's nice to see some humorous
headlines, intentional or otherwise.

Most of these have been around for a long time, so I
make no guarantees that they occurred in 2004, or that
they ever appeared in any newspaper, for that matter. I
only promise they'll make you chuckle. Enjoy.

To be young Again...When we were kids

You lived as a child in the 50s or the 60s or earlier.
Looking back, it's hard to believe that we have lived as
long as we have...

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or
air bags. Riding in the back of a pickup truck on a warm
day was always a special treat.

Our baby cribs were covered with bright coloured lead-
based paint.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors, or
cabinets, and when we rode our bikes, we had no
helmets. (Not to mention hitchhiking to town as a young

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a
bottle. Horrors. We would spend hours building our go-
carts out of scraps and then rode down the hill, only to
find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the
bushes a few times we learned to solve the problem.

We would leave home in the morning and play all day,
as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.
No one was able to reach us all day. No cell phones.

We played dodge ball and sometimes the ball would
really hurt. We got cut and broken bones and broken
teeth and there were no law suits from these accidents.
They were accidents. And No one was to blame but us.
Remember accidents? We had fights and punched each
other and got black and blue and learned to get over it.

We ate cupcakes, bread and butter, and drank sugar
soda but we were never overweight....

.....we were always outside playing. We shared one
grape soda with four friends, from one bottle and no
one died from this?

We did not have Play stations, Nintendo 64, X Boxes,
video games at all, 101 channels on cable, video tape
movies, surround sound, personal cellular phones,
Personal Computers, internet chat rooms ... we had

We went outside and found them. We rode bikes or
walked to a friend's home and knocked on the door, or
rung the bell or just walked in and talked to them.

Imagine such a thing. Without asking a parent! By
ourselves! Out there in the cold cruel world! Without a
guardian. How did we do it?

We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and ate
worms and although we were told it would happen, we
did not put out very many eyes, nor did the worms live
inside us forever.

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the
team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with

Some students weren't as smart as others so they failed
a grade and were held back to repeat the same
grade.....Horrors. Tests were not adjusted for any

Our actions were our own. Consequences were
expected. No one to hide behind.

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke a law was
unheard of. They actually sided with the law, imagine

This generation has produced some of the best risk-
takers and problem solvers and inventors, ever.

The past 50 years has been an explosion of innovation
and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and
responsibility, and I learned how to deal with it all.

And you're one of them.


I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an
adult. I have decided I would like to accept the
responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.

I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star

I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and
make a sidewalk with rocks.

I want to think M&Ms are better than money because
you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade
stand with my friends on a hot summer's day.

I want to return to a time when life was simple; When
all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and
nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because
you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't

All you knew was to be happy because you were
blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you
worried or upset.

I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest
and good.

I want to believe that anything is possible. I want to be
oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly
excited by the little things again.

I want to live simple again. I don't want my day to
consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork,
depressing news, how to survive more days in the
month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills,
gossip, and illness,

I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind
word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination,
mankind, and making angels in the snow.

So . . . here's my cheque book and my car-keys, my
credit card bills and my tax statements. I am officially
resigning from adulthood. And if you want to discuss
this further, you'll have to catch me first, cause........

......"Tag! You're it."

Pass this to someone and brighten their day by helping
them remember the Simple things in Life!

For people over 40 . . .

A computer was something on TV from a science-fiction
show of note.

A window was something you hated to clean And ram
was the cousin of a goat

Meg was the name of my girlfriend.

And gig was a job for the nights

Now they all mean different things

And that really mega bytes.

An application was for employment

A program was a TV show

A cursor used profanity

A keyboard was a piano.

Memory was something that you lost with age

A CD was a bank account

And if you had a 3 inch Floppy You hoped nobody found

Compress was something you did to the garbage

Not something you did to a file

And if you unzipped anything in public you'd be in jail
for a while.

Log on was adding wood to the fire

Hard drive was a long trip on the road

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived

And a backup happened to your commode.

Cut you did with a pocket knife

Paste you did with glue

A web was a spider's home

And a virus was the flu.

I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper

And the memory in my head I hear nobody's been killed
in a computer crash

But when it happens they wish they were dead.

A WASHINGTON POST columnist runs a column
each summer listing interesting WOMEN'S T-shirts
observed at the Ocean City, Maryland beach.

"I had a linguistics professor who said that it's
man's ability to use language that makes him the
dominant species on the planet.
That may be.
But I think there's one other thing that separates
us from animals.
We aren't afraid of vacuum cleaners."
- Jeff Stilson

Being powerful is like being a lady.
If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.
- Margaret Thatcher

"If someone is going down the wrong road, he
doesn't need motivation to speed him up.
What he needs is education to turn him around."

your own profitable website!


To find out how ANYONE, even a computer
"Dummy" like me, can make your own web site
check out:

Or visit these specific pages for your subject of

o The SBI! Small Business Locator
"Find YOUR Small Business (Or Idea)"
Do you reach a rather broad-based audience? Or
what if you want a wife to read your article and perhaps
point her husband or friend in another direction?
This site gives you multiple chances to make a sale...

o For The Aspiring Infopreneur... InfoPublishing
Build an online business based upon what you know
(from work experience, hobbies, passions, or past-times).
If you know your subject matter, and if you're motivated
to build a REAL business with growing, diversified revenues...

o Funnel RELEVANT Traffic to Primary E-commerce/Corporate Site
Already have an online store? A sales site?
Most SSBs who do are in supreme pain... no traffic.
Remind them of their "no traffic" pain. The best way is to
suggest that your prospective customer visit...

... and take the "Get to the Point Test" -- it's a powerful
demo of just how badly off their business is, traffic-wise,
and how much better they could be doing.

Some SBI! clients have spent $30,000+ on their main e-com
But their major source of traffic comes from their $300 SBI!.

o Master the Word to Professional Webmasters
Small business people who "do it themselves" are the tip of
the iceberg. Webmasters reach the iceberg... those who want
others to do it for them.
Use this RR URL to reach the folks who reach the iceberg...

o Affiliates
Finally, the promise of affiliate marketing is realized.
Publish a theme-based information-jammed content site.
Monetize with the cream of affiliate programs, blend in
additional AdSense and other revenues. Finally...
Build an affiliate site that WORKS. Diversify as you grow.

o Network Marketers
Network Marketing starts with recruiting/lead generation.
Generating leads is "made for the Net." But that's not the
way matters have unfolded. Why? Because everyone in the
industry has tried to force offline methods, online.
There's no need to push (i.e., chase cold calls/prospects)
when you can motivate them to pull (i.e., they call you).

o Online Auction Sellers
Encourage auction sellers to free themselves of eBay
The "Big 3" will do it --> #1) Own #2) Diversify #3) Build equity.
Now auction sellers can build REAL businesses that THEY own.

o For LOCAL Businesses with LOCAL Clients
There are tens of millions of small local businesses not yet online.
Those who ARE online? They die deaths of quiet, no-traffic
Show them how to build a Web site that WORKS...
One that delivers 100 times the benefits of a Yellow Pages ad,
At one tenth of the cost.

o For Those Selling a Service... or Could Be!
It's *THE* Most Overlooked Opportunity on the Net.
Build an evergrowing client base until you can say...
"I'm sorry... I'm not taking new clients."

An SBI!-built Theme-Based Content Site is perfect
because every service revolves around a theme.

o Referrers/Finders
Get paid a referrer or finder's fee by an offline business
for finding a customer (or a "lead") for it. This
monetization model is as classic as business itself.
The Net, though, makes it far more cost-effective.

o Selling Hard Goods
Thinking about selling products online?
Maybe you already are,
but want to do better... much better?
If so...

Year by year, both retailers and shoppers are moving ever
more online.
It's the low risk, easy, efficient way to sell.
And, for shoppers, it's the ideal way to buy
(fast, convenient, reliable, endless variety, cheap).

So why do 98% of small business online retailers fail?
And why is this little-known, disastrous "98%-fail"
statistic good news for YOUR audience?

o Selling E-goods
E-books (especially non-fiction "how to"), e-photos
(booming!) scans, niche software, etc. The whole "digital
goods for sale" space is soaring.
--> Anything can be digitized -- sell it.

o Sales/Rentals

Whether you represent villa rentals in Tuscany, medical
imaging manufacturers, or the services of computer
programmers, you CAN sell or rent effectively online.

o Do you reach small business people who already have Web sites?
Challenge them to put their sites (or sites of friends or
colleagues) to the traffic test that we call the...

"Get to the Alexa Point Test"

o Invite your visitors/readers/friends/colleagues to compare
SBI!s' feature set with Yahoo! Web Hosting Pro, Verisign
Web Business Expert and Microsoft bCentral Professional.
The difference is striking...

o "I love it, but I just don't have the time."
Overcome this tragic-but-common, all-too-true objection by
referring this "too-busy" small business person to the
sales-generating Certified Webmaster Directory...

o Make Your Site SELL! 2002
"The definitive work on making ANY Web site SELL!"

o Make Your Knowledge Sell!
"Turn knowledge into revenue -- sell your brain on the Net."

o Make Your Price Sell!
"How much money are YOU leaving on the table?"
Price with complete confidence & double your Net profits.

o Make Your Words Sell!
"Want to sell MORE? Become an e-persuader."

o Make Your Net Auction Sell!
"An e-biz in every closet... Get into Auction Action!"
Now Updated and FREE!

o SpamCheck Report
Now your readers can stay out of the "Junk Mail Folder."
Just direct them to check their newsletter for "spamminess"
by sending it to YOUR unique spamcheck e-mail address...

... and we'll send back a full SpamCheck Report in seconds.
Make sure "TEST" (all capital letters, without the quotes)
starts the subject line or we'll ignore it (we consider all
e-mails to this address without "TEST" as being spam).

Use SpamCheck Build It! (you'll find that in the QUICK JUMP
Drop-Down Menu in the 5P Club) -- it will create some great
copy for you, as well as your HTML with your RR URL.

We'll write your cookie right away, even if the visitor to
the SpamCheck Web page never actually uses it! :-)

This is ideal for the small business person just starting
out (and there are zillions of folks in this boat, looking
desperately for the perfect solution -- SBI! is it).

o A Revolution in Web Site Monetization -- Google's AdSense
A Tailor-Made Way to Monetize Your SBI! Site!...
Rarely will a custom-made solution be dropped into your lap
(let alone from the Net's smartest company), just begging you
to capitalize. Ride Google AdSense for all its worth. Send
visitors to THE word on how to get the most from AdSense...

Wishing you all the very best life has to offer,
