[Pictures enclosed] I kid you not, “DOGA” is a real thing

I’m an avid yoga practitioner. Every day I hit the mat for at least 20-minutes. I love the way it makes my body and mind feel. But some folks are going overboard with this whole yoga thing. Earlier this year,  I reported that my crazy wife Karen was excited to do “goat yoga.” This is where you do yoga with …

Why this guru is dead wrong

One of my former students has gone on to become a highly-successful guru. The dude is the real deal and gets results for his customers. However, he was dead wrong in when he wrote in a Facebook book that people who are starting to create an online business should not focus on doing webinars but instead should focus on list …

Cilantro and Deep Fried Selling

I had been looking forward to going to what has been consistently been voted one of the best restaurants in Atlanta. It’s a Chinese place with the humble name Masterpiece.

What Ralph Kramden Can Teach You About Success

The cast, the storylines, the acting, the comedic timing was spot on. In the following clip, Ralph’s pal Ed Norton is trying to help him learn to play …

What I wrote in my journal this morning

You reap what you sow

So I was on The Facebook earlier this morning, and a marketing dude was offering a hardcover book for free, and you only pay shipping and handling.  He was using the now classic book funnel. I started reading some of the comments, and what to my wondering eyes did appear? People were complaining that the book wasn’t really “free,” others …
