What I learned from one webinar

My friend Mark is a well-respected affiliate marketer from New Zealand who recently opened up doors for his Training. In conjunction to the launch, he taught a webinar hosted wonderfully by Reena Shohet at Associate Programs (who are giving away 7 valuable bonuses) which had great takeaways for affiliate marketers.

Mark’s affiliate marketing adventures started in 2009 when his friend Charlie put up a website on GeoCities. This lead to Charlie putting up an affiliate link for a dating site and earning commissions for about US$90 per month. This prompted Mark to ask the question, “How do I link up people with products and earn commissions?” and like they say the rest is history.

Mark is based in New Zealand which shows time and time again that you can be successful on the Internet even from outside of the US as location generally has no impact on online business. What’s inspirational about Mark is that he started out small (like the most of us) and had a student loan to pay. He juggled his Internet business with a part-time job at Pizza Hut.

Quickie Dinner: Ginger Carrots + Bonus Marinade!

I didn’t plan to blog last night’s dinner, but it came out so yummy that I decided to share! I made it up as I went along, so feel free to tweak it according to your own tastes. Add more chili sauce if you like heat or more sugar if you don’t. Either way, it will be tasty!

We ate these delicious carrots with some basmati rice, edamame, and an equally yummy soy-marinated pork tenderloin. I’m including the recipe for the marinade at the end, as a Wednesday bonus!!

Oh, and as a bonus-bonus, this meal is C-H-E-A-P. As long as you have the pantry ingredients on hand, it comes out to less than $5 for dinner for two. ($2.50 for a 1-lb pork tenderloin on sale, already had the basmati but it would come out to about $.50/cup, organic baby carrots $1.00 on sale and edamame $1 for 1/2 of a $2 package)

5 Reasons You Need to Hire a Coach

The purpose of learning is to grow better and stronger than you were yesterday. Are you better today than you were yesterday?  Are you making the most of your potential?

If the question is no, this post could be exactly what you’re looking for.

A coach comes in many forms.  This can be a friend, a sibling, a colleague.  It doesn’t matter as long as it’s someone that can help you.  Of course, most people close to you will gladly help at no cost.  While this is great, sometimes you need a little more.

I’m talking about paying someone who’s an expert in their field to help you get better.  Yes, it’s an investment b/c people’s time costs money (and sometimes it’s a lot).  My experience has been that it’s well worth it.  In fact, I would put the Return on Investment of hiring a coach at 10x (10 times what you paid) in most cases.

HERE ARE 5 REASONS TO HIRE A COACH:

Spicy Chicken “Lasagna”

Sometimes the best laid-plans just don’t work out. I had been dreaming about a steaming hot bowl of the Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Tortilla Soup (you may have noticed that I mention PW every 1 in 3 posts- obsessed much?) all of yesterday. When I got home and began preparing to make it, however, I neglected to read the cook/simmer times (rookie mistake!).

The problem? We were hungry like…10 minutes ago. Since I had already roasted off the chicken breasts, I needed a plan B. I still wanted that spicy, tomato-ey taste that I’d get from the tortilla soup, just quicker.

Relish the Valley: Life in the Low Points

What if your low point could be a high point? What if this time of desperation could be a time of spiritual growth and increased understanding unlike any you have experienced before? It certainly won’t be, not if you’re lusting for the mountaintop.

The thing is, even when you summit the mountain it won’t deliver the thrill you have longed for if you get this wrong.

My life experience has taught me to laugh at adversity, so this is my message I pass on to all dropouts I meet in my volunteer work. Yes leaving high school is not the best step, but everyone can take online classes and pass the GED exam.

With the GED diploma in hand they  are back in track.  I’m still learning but a little personal schadenfreude goes a long way. If it’s possible to laugh at something, why give it the power of calling it a tragedy?

Unless you get really good at trudging around in the valley, you won’t be able to enjoy the mountain for fear of falling. It will all be too dizzying.

To be an effective leader you need to take advice

Wess Roberts in Leadership Secrets of Attila The Hun is already a few years old, but still highly relevant. It has the following general principles about Leadership and advice:

  • A wise Leader never ignores the person who gives bad news but rather ignores the person who fails to give them bad news
  • A sensible Leader never asks questions where they will ignore the answer
  • A Leader who asks the wrong the questions will always hear the wrong answers
