Who are you trying to please?Ever look at a website and scratch your head?Pretty pictures... Nice layout... what's it all about?Are you writing for your own pleasure?Who is your customer?What are you selling?Are people buying what you're selling? If not, have you asked why?Have you answered these questions?Do people leave your website wondering what you want them to do?Did you ask them for a decision? Did you actually ask them to buy what you're selling?A basic question, but you would be amazed

Yep, it's been a while!I've been absent, without leave!Enjoying every minute of it!At age 83, I decided to slow down... really!So, I quit chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.Decided to live in the here and now.Of course, I do miss the dialogue with my friends daily...I rose to #7 as Ambassador...I wrote a blog every day...

What?Your success! WHEN? As soon as you do it the right way!There are three ways of doing things... Right way... Wrong-way... Your way!Which way are you trying to do it?Everyone has a "better mousetrap.": Don't need all those lessons...Got a better way of doing it... WRONG!If it ain't broke, don't fix it!Sure...You might swim the ocean, except for sharks, big waves... etc.Sure you could fly an airplane, but instruction is better... could avoid a crash.I personally witnessed a guy buying an air

All pilots have!Reasons are many...high winds, heavy airplane, misjudged approach. It can be a teeth jarring experience or a destructive landing.Pilots don't stop flying after a hard landing...All of us will experience "hard landings" in life!Everyone fails at least once... it's whether you continue to fly.Hey... it's not the end!There will be opportunities for bad landings... get up and fly again.Choose the wrong niche? Not the end of the world!Not making money? Rome wasn't built in a day...

Keep It Simple Stupid!More than a motto... It's a way of life for me!I was a "shiny new object person" Every bell and whistle I HAD to have!House was filled with them... Every new piece of software I loaded. Joined every new scheme that promised me a fast buck...Didn’t find it!After 83 years I found it!I made the painful decision... Get rid of it... Leave it... Move on!KISS it! It's a brand new way of living. It's liberating! You've just gotta try it. From 10 websites to 3 - 1 my church
