One response, eh?


I’m hoping you can help explain these statistics.

Remember that “I used to hate Mondays” post from last week? Here are the raw stats from that email that was sent out to a portion of my list:
708 subscribers were sent that email.
144 opened it and read it.
Then, I sent a follow up email to those 144 subscribers that opened the original email. 
In that follow-up email, I said:

Man, I used to loathe Mondays.

How do you feel about ’em? Mondays, I mean?
I hated Mondays because it represented everything I was unsatisfied with in my life. On Mondays, I had to leave my family (yet again) to go to a job that bored me to absolute tears, while working with a few good people, but mostly a bunch of lawyer-ish twats. [Read More…]

Headers and ad banners and memes and and and…

Cheese Please
Let’s get to the heart of the question…


Face it. At some point you’ve probably unzipped a PLR package and said to yourself, “Self, what do I DO with all these things?” I’ve done that too, no worries.
Today, I’m going to let you in on some ways you can use the graphics that come in my PLR packages (or anyone else’s, for that matter) for the forces of good, not evil. Read: drive traffic and increase your income.
Here’s a rundown of how I recommend you use those awesome graphics: [Read More…]

Fave Ways to Use PLR Articles


Do you use PLR articles in your business and/or on your websites? I thought you’d be interested in MY favorite ways to utilize PLR articles.

We all know that the search engine gods LOVE unique content, and PLR articles don’t fit that particular bill. So what can we do that’s quick and easy?

Rewrite ’em! But not the way you think. Oh no, I have an easier way that’ll have you creating unique, interesting content in absolutely NO time at all. [Read More…]

Fear is a Motherf&cking Rainbow, Dammit!



Rainbow roses, yo!

Now before you go thinking that I’ve gone crazy(er), because of the change of content here, I gotta explain something to you…


I’m 43 years old. If the ego develops around, say, five years old, then it’s safe to say that I’ve spent the last (counts on fingers) 38 years trying to gain acceptance from those around me. Literally, my life and nearly every action I’ve taken have been to gain someone else’s acceptance.


Thirty-eight YEARS, you guys.

I’m scrappy. Are you scrappy?

In the dog-eat-dog world of IM, you gotta be scrappy.


*Note: No puppies were hurt in the making of this crappy scrappy meme.*


Because if you’re not scrappy, THEY will eat you alive. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. And I can count on one hand the people I can actually trust in this industry, out of the thousands of people I know.


But that’s okay, because for each person that I learn I can’t trust, it’s just someone I know I don’t want in my tribe. And then you find those you can trust – the good guys – and it’s fun and awesome and amazing again!

Are you stuck? Do you think you suck?


I’ve totally been there, too.

Last year, right around this time, I was in a bad, bad place in life. I had just realized that I had been in a deeply debilitating depression for about a year and a half that had taken my business, and had very scarily nearly taken my life. [Read More…]

Where Do You Start? Where Do I Start?

The title…that’s what really fucks a lot of us up, isn’t it? I know it does for me.

I have plans – BIG plans – but I seem to always get throttled because I don’t know where to start. God, it’s frustrating too, when you’ve got so many ideas and so much goodness inside you that feels like it can’t come out.

So for today, for right now, I’m starting right here. Come with me? Because I’d LOVE it if you were with me on this journey. [Read More…]

Avoidance, I Am Your Queen

There are a lot of things that I don’t want to do. Learning new skills or habits is one of them. I want to be instantly good at whatever I try to do. This has prevented me from learning to do many things I’d love to learn to do.

Learn acoustic guitar.

Learn to draw.
