You must have come across people who are consistently successful at everything they do. They start a business and they succeed. They start an online marketing venture and prove wrong, all those people crying hoarse that it’s not going to work.

Many a time have I been asked two questions. 1) Do I really need a blog and 2) Can you show me how to make money blogging.
Having a blog online is very important in many ways. You may come across people who tell you that it’s a complete waste of time and doesn’t do anything, but that’s the opinion they have formed.
Generally, the people that tell you not to waste time building a blog are mostly those that don’t like putting their face out there and make themselves easily findable online. They prefer to sit behind their computers and make money without anyone knowing who... (more)

WE MAKE BIG PLANS BUT GET SIDETRACKED ALONG THE WAY!
The best-laid schemes of mice and men go often awry.” – Robert Burns, 1785
An entrepreneur starts a business with specific plans after spending hours on end perfecting it, but ultimately diverts the attention to something else. A student resolves to spend time studying for a few hours every evening, only to end up watching the sports channel. A woman who is on a low-budget, decides to buy a small gift for someone, but ends up buying an atrociously expensive one only to regret it later. So what’s happening to these people?... (more)

Ask the losers …. Ask the birds in the trees … Ask the fish in the sea! Who am I? … I am THE winner!”
I am the one that won against all those losers! I am THE winner!”
Among a million people, the winners shine like Roman conquerors, while the losers sit quietly. While pride and confidence are the traits of the winners, losers wear the armor of timidity.
Fortunately, there exists only a thin line between the two, and quitters/losers have the ability to fling... (more)
Have you had much success with guest posting? Those of you that have actually tried posting on sites that “qualify” and are worthy of your attention, should know that it’s not an easy task getting your content on there.
Some of the top sites have pretty strict guidelines and that’s understandable. You can’t just send out mails saying “I would like to do a guest post on your blog.” Most of the time, you can expect such emails to end up in the junk folder.
People with quality blogs/sites, who accept guest posts, have the potential to get you some fine links.... (more)
Each of us are exposed to hundreds of media messages every single day, and hundreds of subtle messages of daily interactions. All of them are intended to persuade us to influence our attitudes and behaviors, although we don’t always label them as such.
We ignore some of these messages and others get through successfully. We persuade a friend to watch a movie or a co-worker to leave work a few minutes early.
We use persuasion to have things our way and this is what your target audience needs – communication that is persuasive in nature – persuasion that prompts them to buy.... (more)
