“I don't know what you mean by ‘glory’,” Alice said.Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don't — till I tell you. I meant ‘there's a nice knock-down argument for you!’”“But ‘glory’ doesn't mean ‘a nice knock-down argument’,” Alice objected.“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor les

There is a lot of talk here on Wealthy Affiliate about choosing a niche. And one piece of advice that is offered by many — myself included — is to choose a niche based on passion.Sure, you can follow more traditional business advice and research the market, identify gaps, and develop products and services to meet demand. As a guy with a business degree and over 30+ years in management, I can attest to the effectiveness of such a process under normal circumstances.As a writer, howeve

“This year’s top grossing film!” “Billions and billions sold!” “5 out of 5 stars!”Movies like The Avengers, chains like McDonald’s, and best sellers on Amazon all have one thing in common…They are the marketing equivalent of the “popular” kids. Have you ever wondered why something popular seems to continue to be popular? Why do the things “on top” seem to grow even bigger?Popularity generates a form of social evidenc
Are you just getting started with affiliate marketing? Or, have you been going for a while and still not seeing the results you would like?

Would you believe me?What if I could prove it to you?How It StartedToday’s message began as a conversation I was having with my friend Tiffany (@TDomena) about marketing and sales.

“Put that coffee down … coffee’s for closers only!” - Glengarry Glen RossIt’s no news to anyone that I am a reader and a writer. I love fiction, non-fiction, poetry, you name it. I just love words.What may surprise you is that I am also a HUGE theatre buff. While I like a good film as much as the next person, I am more partial to plays. I just like how you can tell a complete story and get to intimately know characters, all without CGI effects or leaving the confi
Do you ever watch Discovery or the Travel Channel? Did you wonder how the hosts of those shows got such a sweet job? Have you every dreamed of getting paid to actually travel? It's not as crazy as you might think...Many of you read of my family's recent cross-country move, and through your love and support you know I have decided to turn it into an actual book. And to quote the late night infomercials, "But wait, there's more!"This decision also lead me to ponder actual travel sites. More impor
As you may know, I am a huge advocate of self development. And while there are dozens, if not hundreds, of so-called “gurus” out there, there is one in particular that I owe an overwhelming sense of gratitude to for being the first in my life.Unless you have been living under a rock for the past 30 years, I am sure you recognize the name Tony Robbins.Now, Robbins was not the first motivational speaker in the world, of course, but he was certainly the first for me. His work in Neuro-
“The difference between those who succeed and those who fail isn’t what they have — it’s what they choose to see and do with their resources and their experience of life.” — Tony RobbinsYesterday I posted some exercises on how to develop your creativity. And in that post, I promised that I would also show you how to use the skills you learn in those exercises to help overcome negative mindset issues such as fear, anxiety, etc.Before we get too far, let me jus

Do you consider yourself creative? Believe it or not, not many people do. Often we see creatives as something special, as if it is a gift that one is born with; you either have it or you don’t.And there is nothing further from the truth. Creativity is a skill — a skill that can be developed — and is nothing to be intimidated by. I am often complimented here at WA for my humorous and witty writing style (I know in my heart that I’m funny, dammit!), but I wasn’t alwa
