Visualizations and goal setting

16 March 2007

0 Comments

At the World Internet Summit, one of the speakers had everyone close their eyes and visualize something they truly wanted or wanted to be doing with their lives. The idea is to spend just a few minutes everyday doing this and eventually the visualization will become a reality. It sounds a bit corny and I […]

I should have been interviewed in this story! “There is an immense feeling of freedom when you realize you are not tied geographically to your income source. The idea that I could work on a beach in Thailand as easily as in the center of Paris or traversing Canada is incredible. Technology has evolved to […]

I spent $25 on Stumbleupon, advertising my new dating site: www.wealthypeopledating.com. I happy to report I now have one member! I think Stumbleupon ads could work, if you have a site which has the potential to go viral. You use the advertising to get a kick start, and then let the stumbleupon community promote the […]

I am now in Bangkok on the first stage of my trip. It is going to be interesting to see if I am going to be able to adapt to working from internet cafes. The room I am currently staying in doesn’t even have a power plug for my laptop. Although I hope to compensate […]

Day 4 of the World Internet Summit

Today I listened to presentations by Marc Dussault (Jay Abraham representative), Ewen Chia, Rick Raddatz and Steve Pierce. I enjoyed Rick Raddatz’s presentation the most, more for the way he presented than what he was actually promoting. All of the presentations are half useful content with just enough to get you interested and then they […]

I think it was only time before Shoemoney launched his own affiliate program – AuctionAds. He did have something called Shoemoney ads, but I am not sure if he promoted it so much? Textlinkads and reviewme are great programs – easy to implement and start making money for webmasters. Nice, easy to use interfaces. Some […]

I just upgraded my last old mambo sit to Joomla. It is my New Zealand property site. I haven’t had much success with the site, so hopefully the new face lift will help give it a boost. I am also planning some new features for the site. I have now consolidated most of my sites […]

UK Offer has an interview with his mate who just sold his freebies website for 120,000 pounds. The site was started in 2000 on Geocities. His story is a familar one: I was a civil servant at the time, and hated my job with a passion so that certainly helped with motivation. After 18 months […]
