Adrian Morrison's New Product - Before You Buy Read This!
Because you are about to hit the 'Crap Wall.'
What's that you ask?
You may be familiar with the long distance runner's wall? The almost impenetrable barrier of fatigue that stops many of them dead in their tracks.
Except in this case the wall will be your email box.
Your inbox will quickly become a confusing avalanche of non-sense! Emails about the most incredibly useless approaches to making money will clog your inbox.
Regrettably, it only takes responding to a couple of make money offers to trigger this process.
And, just like the long distance runner, it will have the same effect. You will be stopped cold in your online money making tracks.
Your email box will fill to the brim with distractions and time wasters. But that's not the worst part.
It's the irony.
Because in addition to not making you any money this non-sense will actually suck money out of you!
Usually these distractions will take the form of what I call 'the flavor of the day.'
Here are a few of the flavors that may already be in your email box right now:
- Google (Plus, Play, etc.)
- Magic Software
These offers will bury you under a mountain of useless information. They will spin your wheels and waste more of your time without putting any money in your wallet.
Much of what you purchase will simply sit on your computer. You may not even open most of it.
Not because you're a slacker.
It's because you are too busy with your life to decipher and apply these schemes.
After all you probably sought money online because you didn't have time for second, or third, job.
And most of the stuff you purchase will be hard to 'make work.'
So you will simply keep going to the next offer in futile attempts to make money online.
But I'm getting ahead of myself.
Let Me Rewind A Bit
Learning to make money online can be one of the most difficult undertakings in your life!
Because the approach that most new online marketers take require too many moving parts. This is exactly why you have failed in the past.
You didn't know what to do first, how often, or with which resource. Most of the stuff that you are being taught is designed to put more money in the guru's pockets anyway.
Let me tell you that your dream to infuse life with an extra income stream is a good one. And you can make it a reality!
We can help you -- if you let us.
Don't Trade Time For Money Online!
Everyday people who have a skill offline come online to earn money from it. They setup a site, and offer that skill in the form of a service.
Sometimes they join 'micro job' sites like Fiverr, Odesk, Freelancer, etc. where they sell services.
This requires pleasing clients who are trying to gouge you and spending 'sweat shop' hours on your computer. Many soon discover that they have simply traded a lousy off line job for an even worst online version!
I don't believe that this is your true intention...right?
We Can Save You Time (And Money)
Let's say that you don't have a service to offer. Instead you have come online to discover other ways to make money from home -- without trading time for money.
You see the real advantage of the internet is that you can have machines (computers) doing the work for you.
What is the secret?
The REAL Secret!
Here it is plainly. The real secret to making money online (at least in the make money niche) is in training and teaching.
That's represents 95% of the offers in your email box. (Check if you don't believe me).
But you have to be able to deliver the training without "physically" being there yourself. This is how you make it the most profitable!
If you are new to the whole 'make money online' thing you probably don't have anything to teach yet.
Odds are that you haven't learned any of the hundreds of skills necessary to provide valuable training to an audience.
And, if you are really smart, you won't spend hundreds of hours trying to learn them either.
Instead you will leverage someone else's training.
That's where MoonLightWealth.Com comes in. Much of what we teach is aimed at new authors.
But YOU can make good money from our system -- without having to become an author yourself.
And we are talking about very good money.
But It Gets Even More Complicated

Only 1 Out of 4 Men with Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Seek Help...
According to The Journal of Sexual Medicine only one out of four men diagnosed with Erectile Dysfunction (ED) ever seek help.
That's a lot of unsatisfied men walking around!
So if you are one of the 75% who have not sought professional help for your problem the information here may assist you (disclaimer: this is not medical advice).
The Bad News!
The smooth muscle cells in the penis can wear down. This can happen through several illnesses:
- high cholestrol
When these muscles wear out there really nothing that can be done. Unlike skin cells, for instance, when they die they don't come back!
But there is hope one new study from Australian researchers found that some men can reverse erectile dysfunction with lifestyle changes. If you fall in the category of men who can be helped here are some natural options to consider:
Exercise! It improves blood flow by increasing nitric oxide in blood vessels which aids in acheiving healthy erections.
Less Alcohol. Alcohol is a depressant and can cause both temporary and long-term erectile dysfunction
Sleep. Sleep loss can lower testosterone levels in men. This loss increases the chances of sexual dysfunction.
Waist size. Healthy eating, along with exercise, can promote weight loss. Men who have 42-inch (or larger) are 50 percent more likely to have ED. Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Avoid saturated fats and trans fats.
Stop Smoking. Smoking and even smokeless tobacco can also cause the narrowing of important blood vessels. ED is believe to be the result of vascular disease which restricts blood supply to the penis.
Herbal Remedies. Ginseng and Pomegranate juice have been shown to improve blood flow and prevent atherosclerosis.

12 Ways to Get Rich Online Fast While Working Full-Time
I have read one of Noah Christian's books in the past and, not only did I enjoy it, but actually learned something.
But the title of his new book; "12 Ways to Get Rich Online Fast While Working Full-Time" initally made me roll my eyes.
It seems everyone has carved out a piece of the infamous "make money online" category.
Curious about what he had to say I plunked down my .99 cents and took a look.
Well, to say that I learned something new would be an understatement. "12 Ways" is more of a White Paper than a full fledge book.
Yet this did not take away from the impact of what he revealed.
Usually the word revealed is used too often. Especially when it comes to the MMO category but what he had to say was eye opening.
Mr. Christian must spend many hours staying on top of the hottest trends. Actually the market movements the talks about in "12 Ways" will probably give rise to new sectors in the economy.
The most fascinating point that he makes is how accessible several of them are to ordinary folks (like you and me).
I must admit there are at least 2 approaches that I am personally giving a closer look.
If you have gotten tired of the typical MMO dribble you might find Noah Christian's insight bordering on brilliant.
Amazon Free Products - How to Get Free Stuff on Amazon
Face it, few things beat getting something for free.
Now you can get all kinds of free things on Amazon.Com. Nope, not talking about anything illegal here (not hacking or scamming, etc.)
I am referring to ways to get products free on Amazon.Com that other people pay hard earned money to receive.
You may ask why on earth would anyone give you a product for free?
Good question. Here's the answer.
Enter the Amazon FBA Program. What is Amazon FBA?
Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) lets regular folks (referred to as Merchants) store their products in Amazon's fulfillment centers. When customers (like me and you) ordered these products Amazon will pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.
FBA warehouses are large and each has hundreds of employees. Employees are responsible for four basic tasks: unpacking and inspecting incoming goods; placing goods in storage and recording their location; picking goods from their computer recorded locations to make up an individual shipment; and shipping. A computer that records the location of goods and maps out routes for pickers plays a key role: employees carry hand-held computers which communicate with the central computer and monitor their rate of progress. A picker may walk 10 or more miles a day.
Sorry, I digress... where was I?
Oh yeah... so when these merchants are selling their items they want to get a higher ranking.
What is Amazon's Ranking?
If you look down the page to the ‘Product Details’ section, you’ll see it says ‘Amazon Bestsellers Rank’. This is a number that’s purportedly calculated hourly and is linked to the number of recent sales of the product relative to the other products in that category. The smaller that number is (500 versus 5,000) the higher that items is said to rank.
Merchants are well aware of that and that's why they are eager to give away products in hope that you will rate their product high (5 stars) and help them climb the rankings.
So how do you get the free stuff from them? (To continue reading this article go to the link below)
What is Popular on Twitter?
What is Popular on Twitter?
Looking for some good ideas for article content or to discover what's going on right this very second? Twitter may be your solution, here's why:
What Is Twitter?
Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called "tweets". Registered users can read and post tweets, but unregistered users can only read them.
Why Is Twitter Popular?
Twitter is fast! Using 140 characters means that you can get in and out in quickly. It is also very easy to do from a smartphone which is harder with other sites like Facebook.
Twitter Has Lots of Advantages:
- Twitter is a great place to get content ideas for blogs, videos, and tweets.
- Twitter is free.
- Twitter is easy to join.
- Twitter has a billion registered users.
- You can use twitter on your smartphone
- Twitter can be integrated into your blog posts (http://www.movies4fans.com)
- You can use your twitter ID to log in to other website and also post comments
- Every tweet goes to your followers. On Facebook, each post you make only goes out to some of your fans because of Facebook’s algorithm. On Twitter, unless you tweet directly to someone, each and every tweet goes to all of your followers.
- Lots of well known celebrities use Twitter and you can find them, and follow them, by searching.
A word, phrase or topic that is mentioned at a greater rate than others is said to be a "trending topic". Trending topics become popular either through a concerted effort by users, or because of an event that prompts people to talk about a specific topic. These topics help Twitter and their users to understand what is happening in the world and what people's opinions are about it.
Trending topics are sometimes the result of concerted efforts and manipulations by preteen and teenaged fans of certain celebrities or cultural phenomena, particularly musicians like Lady Gaga (known as Little Monsters), Justin Bieber (Beliebers), and One Direction (Directioners), and fans of the Twilight (Twihards), Rihanna fans (Rih Navy), and Harry Potter (Potterheads) novels. Twitter has altered the trend algorithm in the past to prevent manipulation of this type, with limited success.
The most popular trending topics are shown in a sidebar on the Twitter home page - either the most popular topics globally, or the local trending topics

Virtual Assistant Training: How Your VA Can Make Your Rich
What is a Virtual Assistant?
A virtual assistant (typically abbreviated to VA, also called a virtual office assistant) is generally self-employed and provides professional administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistance to clients remotely from a home office.
In recent years Virtual Assistants have also worked their way into many mainstream businesses and with the advent of VOIP services such as Skype it has been possible to have a Virtual Assistant who can answer your phone remotely without the end user's knowledge. This allows many businesses to add a personal touch in the form of a receptionist without the additional cost of hiring someone.
The fact that they work from home also means that it frees up office resources. You can hire VAs on sites like; Odesk.com, Elance.com, and Fiverr.com.
Importance of Virtual Assistants
Virtual Assistants come from a variety of business backgrounds, but most have several years experience earned in the "real" business world. The advantage of using a virtual assistant is that they can free you to focus on more important parts of your business like marketing.
Typical Ways Entrepreneurs Use a Virtual Assistant
Most new entrepreneurs use VAs to perform services like the following:
Social media monitoring
Writing board reports
Managing Your VAs
Online tools have made it easier than ever to manage your VAs. You can use Dropbox.com for file sharing, Google Apps for calendars, email and contacts. Skype can be used to communicate with your Virtual Assistants.
The Way to Maximize Your Income with a Virtual Assistant
Despite the fact that Virtual Assistants can perform the tasks we've mentioned this is not the most effective way to increase profit with a VA.

How to Invest 10000 Dollars in 2015 and 2016
Okay, so let's say you have ten thousand dollars to invest. Let's go further today that you need to make the money back quickly.
But first make sure that the money is disposable and you don't need it for everyday use (or for bills).
If you want to see what I would suggest you can scroll to the bottom to find what I consider a solid investment.
But here are a few options to consider:
Mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are a good way to get started. Wealth front is perhaps the largest and fastest-growing online financial advisor in the industry.
Based in Silicon Valley, Wealth front was the first to reach $1 billion in assets under management (AUM), and they did it in just two and a half years. Wealth front has removed all commissions and account maintenance fees, by charging just 0.25% of AUM in your account. And the first $10,000 is managed for free.
Tim Ferriss, notable author of The 4 Hour Workweek, has an investment fund. The minimum investment is $1,000, but his typical investment is $10,000.00.
Beginner investors can purchase a major index like the S&P 500 via mutual funds or ETFs. This ensures you’re diversified across a large group of companies and sectors. For instance, the S&P right now is made up of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM), General Electric (NYSE:GE) and other well-known companies across a wide range of businesses. You can buy a little bit of all those companies by buying the entire index.
Boost 401(k) Savings
Boosting your 401(k) savings is a great idea, especially if your employer matches contributions. Say your employer matches your contributions up to 5% of your pay, but you're currently only contributing 3%. In that case, you're essentially forfeiting 2% of your monthly salary. Consider increasing your contributions at least up to the company match. The contribution limit for this year on 401k plans is $17,000.
Start a College Fund for Your Children
You may also want to take your nest egg and invest it in your child's college fund. Your best bet is a 529 plan. The cost of college is staggering, and anything you can do to help pay for these expenses can help your children lessen their reliance on student loans. Depending on where you live, you may be able to deduct your contributions on your state income tax return.
Increase Your Mortgage Payments
Say you're 10 years into a $200,000, 30-year fixed mortgage at 6%. Bumping up your payment by just $100 could save nearly $19,000 over the life of the loan, and you'll pay off your mortgage almost three years earlier.

Amazon Penny Books: How Do People sell Books on Amazon for a Penny?
Amazon Penny Books: How Do People sell Books on Amazon for a Penny
If you are a confused Amazon FBA Seller or a Curious Buyer Read This...
"How Do People sell Books on Amazon for a Penny?" this question is usually asked by Amazon FBA sellers trying to compete in this marketplace.
But occasionally a skeptical new Amazon buyer will inquire.
Let's answer the question:
(BTW - this answer is being brought to you by MoonLightWealth.Com. If you want to make money online without hassling with shipping books or setting up websites - link at bottom of article).
The first thing you need to realize is that these "sellers" are not your average Amazon FBA seller. They can access THOUSANDS of books. Many times they are getting hundreds of pallets of books for FREE.
Many times these books are donated or gotten from charity affiliations. So here's how the numbers stack up:
(Originally posted in Amazon Seller Forum)
.01 + $3.99 = $4.00 charged to customer
-$1.35 variable closing fee
-$0.99 non PM fee
-$2.77 postage equals
a loss of $1.11--yes, you are paying Amazon $1.11 to take the book off your hands (and that doesn't even include shipping envelope, book acquisition costs, or labor)
-$1.35 variable closing fee
-$2.77 postage equals
a twelve cent loss (you are paying amazon .12 to take the book off your hands), and again, that doesn't include the cost of the shipping envelope, the book or labor.
For a 1# book, it's only a nominal improvement:
-$0.99 Non PM fee
-$2.38 postage equals
A seventy-two cent loss per book (paying Amazon to take books off your hands).
For 5 years, and counting, MLW has helped regular non-technical on-liners earn money. If you want to make money online without hassling with shipping books or setting up websites go to:
Paperless Pipeline Review - Dane Maxwell and Pat Flynn
Pat Flynn interviewed Dane Maxwell about Idea Extraction and using the SaaS to deliver profits...
...and the fastest way to "Building a Lucrative Business with No Ideas, No Expertise & No Money..."
Dane's approach to online business building involves SaaS (Software as a Service).
Dane doesn’t start with an idea, and he’s not interested in becoming an expert at anything other than understanding the pains and problems that people are having in a particular market, and that’s exactly what he does. He asks people what their pains are, what do they wish was available to help make their jobs easier, what are the repetitive tasks that they perform every day, and he builds software solutions that specifically solve those problems.
SaaS is a software distribution model in which applications are hosted by a vendor or service provider and made available to customers over a network, typically the Internet.
In the interview Pat Flynn and Dane Maxwell discuss:
Why software is the most lucrative vehicle to finance your freedom.
Dane’s thoughts on the human desire to become an expert, and how that cripples potential entrepreneurs.
Why people have reservations about getting into software.
The most important questions to ask in order to understand people’s pains and problems.
How to find companies and who (and how to) contact them to get information for potential software solutions.
Why stripping away features is important to get your software launched, and how to use that to your advantage.
An example of how Dane decided to create his first software business just by asking questions.
Why questions to ask to understand how much to price your software.
How to get guaranteed paying customers and have no chance of failing.
The most common mistake that people who attempt to create software make.
The secret language of millionaires that can’t be learned overnight, but must be experiences.
Criteria for great markets to get into to build software for.
How to automatically find the solution to people’s problems.
Success stories from his own students, and the idea extraction process that went along with their businesses.
The #1 reason why people aren’t paying for your product.
How to break down businesses to help break down their problems and pains.
The problem with All-in-One Software Solutions
The Downside of SaaS
Yes, the concept is great. But it does have its challenges:
1) You have to be able to approach entrepreneurs to sell them on the software you will create.
2) You must find a reliable software developer that will work within your budget. This, obviously is a BIG challenge when it comes to this model.
3) You must determine a way to work with a software developer who won't steal your idea and implement it themselves!

Top Online Marketers, Like Frank Kern, All Have Membership Sites - Here's Why...
Ryan Lee, of Premium Funnel Workshop, calls it continuity income.
Back before the internet it was called 'subscription income'
The subscription business model is a business model where a customer must pay a subscription price to have access to the product/service. The model was pioneered by magazines and newspapers, but is now used by many businesses and websites.
Rather than selling products individually, a subscription sells periodic (monthly or yearly or seasonal) use or access to a product or service, or, in the case of such non-profit organizations as opera companies or symphony orchestras, it sells tickets to the entire run of five to fifteen scheduled performances for an entire season. Thus, a one-time sale of a product can become a recurring sale and can build brand loyalty. It is used for anything where a user is tracked in both a subscribed and unsubscribed status.
Membership fees to some types of organizations, such as trade unions, are also known as subscriptions.
But no matter what you, the internet marketing entrepreneur,decides to call it membership site income is a quick route to wealth.
The numbers can be insane.
If you have a $97 dollar product and you manage to get 1,000 members (click link below) you will earn $97,000.00 dollars in one month.
Most people never see that after toiling for an entire year in a job!
But it gets even better because as the original members share the benefits of your membership site -- you get more members!
Remember, 1,000 members is more than one million dollars a year.
That's why so many internet marketers spend years trying to perfect membership sites.
In a recent Inc article Colin Klinkert, of ViralURL, said:
The most important step, they say, is to find a need or niche to fill, or a problem to solve. Klinkert recommends that you make sure your solution delivers massive value and keeps your member base coming back for more.
"Also make certain that you are the leading service provider in your niche, your content is easy to absorb and the membership site easy to navigate," he says. "It is important to make your new customers 'raving fans' as soon as possible. To do this, clearly illustrate the benefits of using your solution, provide the best customer service possible and remember that your customer is the life blood of your business."
The medium can be as important as the message, when you start out building a site. "It's important to know your audience and determine ahead of time whether your site should be mobile-friendly, mobile-ready, or responsive," says Adam
"Finally," Klinkert says, "ensure that your membership site has 'viral aspects.' Small businesses don't have huge marketing budgets and therefore need their new 'raving fans' to be able to go and champion their cause as easily and effectively as possible. This includes, providing social sharing options, having a social media presence and rewarding your customers for spreading the word. (Affiliate programs, recognition etc.) You need to leverage your customer base to attract new business."
There are many crucial components to a successful membership site, but Weedman reminds us that they're not all online. From the start, he says, you need to be considering how hosting events can help build and tighten your community. "Events, events, events. It's all about places to go, and to learn, and to interact," he says. "Members don't join to pay dues, or read a lot of content. They join to interact with other members and learn something."
Michael C. Podlesny started Mike the Gardener Enterprises, and today his main product line is a Seeds of the Month Club membership. The site currently has more than 20,000 members in 15 countries. Podlesny says customer service is the cornerstone of a successful membership-based site. His rules include:
1. Respond quickly to customer concerns.
2. Announce any issues or changes that will occur to the membership. In his case, he says, "once we became large enough to obtain a USPS shipping permit we made that announcement so customers would know." Podlesny ensures that you do not want any surprises for your customers.
3. Ask for customer-feedback—and take it. For this membership site, simply asking "what would you like to see changed to make the club better?" is a great question and garners tremendous response.
Membership Programs Have Lots of Advantages:
- Generate a Consistent and Reliable Stream Of Income
- Good Way To Implement Internet Marketing Strategies
- Share Your Valuable Content
- Membership Sites are Easy to Maintain
- Membership Sites Can Be Easy To Set Up
- Can Grow Your Site Using Social Media
But the challenges are clear:
- How do you start?
- What if you are not an expert?
- What on earth would you offer?
- How do you get members to 'stick'?
- What if you don't have money to invest?

Marijuana Income - Should You Open A Marijuana Store for Fast Cash?
If you live in a state that has legalized the sale of marijuana for medicinal purposes the thought of opening a store may have occurred to you.
In fact, as of this writing, twenty-three states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form.
It even looks like Wall Street may be throwing their hat into the ring with the large number of investors starting marijuana related businesses.
An amazing fact is that the medical benefits of marijuana date back to 1850 with some of ailments it has helped including:
- labor pains
- and most recently glaucoma
Although marijuana is well known for its ability to heighten euphoria (this is the "high") and help you to relax its side effects can be:
- decrease short term memory
- impaired motor skills
- increased paranoia
Despite these side effects worldwide use is estimated to be about 162 million. It is also state that 22.5 million people use marijuana daily.
Let me rush to add that fact that since 1990 approximately 17 million Americans have been arrested on marijuana charges. In 2010 there was an increase in marijuana related arrests that represented an increase of 800 percent since 1980.
But How Much Does A Marijuana Store (Dispensary) Make?
Nearly 60% of dispensary owners who responded to a recent industry survey said they take in $500,000 or less in annual revenues, according to first-of-its-kind data in the newly released Marijuana Business Facebook, published by MMJ Business Daily. A fair share (27% of all respondents) reported sales of between $100,000 and $250,000, while 15% said they bring in less than $100,000 a year.
More than a quarter of dispensaries in the survey reported annual revenues of more than $1 million, and another 15% said they generate between $500,000 and $1 million.
Marijuana and Prohibition?
Yes, the parallels between Marijuana use and the early years of alcohol prohibition are obvious. The powerful incentive of being able to tax American citizens for marijuana consumption, and taking the financial incentive for illegal marijuana sales, gives the legalization argument momentum.
Is Mobile Marijuana Delivery Rival the New "Food Truck"?
This remains to be seen. But, in general, a delivery service tends to have less restrictive regulations and be easier on the whole to establish. It's cheaper to run, quicker to set up, and you don't have the physical limitations of a brick and mortar location.

Craigslist Dangers: Dangers of Selling on Craigslist
Every day more people are looking to the internet as a new source for income. Projections state that 3 billion new users will be online in the next two years.
For many years one of those resources has been Craigslist.
Craigslist is a classified advertisements website with sections devoted to jobs, housing, personals, for sale, items wanted, services, community, gigs, résumés, and discussion forums.
Craig Newmark began the service in 1995 as an email distribution list to friends, featuring local events in the San Francisco Bay Area. It became a web-based service in 1996 and expanded into other classified categories. It started expanding to other U.S. cities in 2000, and now covers 50 countries.
Below are some accounts of the dangers that can be involved with using Craigslist:
The 28-year-old was shot and killed Sept. 12 while meeting a potential buyer in a parking lot of an apartment complex, allegedly by a 16-year-old girl who, along with her boyfriend, sought to steal the video gaming system.
Crimes linked to Craigslist are still making headlines. New Haven native Felix Dejesus was robbed and shot to death after trying to sell an electronic tablet. Police said Dejesus arranged a meet up through Craigslist In May of 2013.
Sellers who have posted contact information on their Craigslist ads have occasionally been victims of robbery and murder. In his article for MSNBC, Herb Weisbaum reported that an Edgewood, WA man was murdered after a woman responded to his ad listing a ring for $2,760. She arrived with three partners, who robbed the residence and killed the ad's poster. Weisbaum quoted Michael Kaiser of the National Cyber Security Alliance as saying that criminals have become very skilled in culling personal information from Craigslist, using it to virtually case a residence and determine if the property is worth robbing.
The fiancé of a man murdered for his cellphone says he wondered if the man who planned to buy it was setting him up for a robbery.
Clayton County police say 18-year-old Terrance Dent shot and killed 25-year-old Jevon Freeman in a church parking lot on Highway 85 near Riverdale Wednesday. Officers say Freeman met Dent to sell him an iPhone Freeman had advertised on Craigslist.
Another man, trying to sell some fancy sneakers met his potential buyer at a Dunkin’ Donuts, Tuesday night. The potential buyer pulled a gun on him. Police arrested Moses Hurley, 18, and a juvenile is connection with the Dunkin’ Donuts robbery. Police do not believe they are responsible for Playstation robberies and stabbing.
Never list your home address, phone number or any other personal information in your Craigslist ad, and create a dedicated email account that you'll use solely for Craigslist transactions. When selling a small item, arrange to meet the prospective buyer at a public place. If you're selling a large object that's impractical to move, have other people with you during your appointment with a prospective buyer. Never arrange for a meeting at night and never allow the person to enter your house, particularly if you're alone.

Use eBay with Stripe? Looking for PayPal Alternative?
What is Stripe?
In case you've been busy making your millions online and haven't heard the news: Stripe is a no-contract payment gateway that lets you collect payments (including recurring payments), and place the money to your own account.
It does all this without:
- you needing to store credit card information
- you needing to use SSL on your site (this saves you fees)
- you needing a private IP
- you worrying about PCI compliance
(And if you use other payment gateways PCI compliance is the new way to suck money out of your account).
Because of these wonderful features Stripe is developing a passionately loyal following.
Stripe's CEO Patrick Collision is in conversation with many payment platforms and app developers to get exposure for his service. In a recent interview at the Ignition Mobile conference he said:
"One of the trends in mobile is that advertising isn't doing very well. It's very possible that advertising business models will simply never do as well on mobile devices as those oriented around transactions."
PayPal Has Issues!
You may be one of the many online entrepreneurs who have run afoul of PayPal's dubious payment policies. Chris Lema, CTO of Crowd Favorite, recently wrote an article telling of his woes with the payment processor. In the article Chris writes:
"...They (PayPal) went into my checking account and grabbed 70% of the funds that had been paid to me. Yes, $700 dollars were yanked out. Without notice or approval. Without complaint from the customer..."
Here's A Shocker!
Perhaps payment processors (like PayPal) are seeing the writing on the wall. It may even surprise you to know that all three of PayPal's cofounders; Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, and Max Levchin—have invested in Stripe!
Downside to Stripe?
As wonderful as Stripe is the user interface is hard for non-nerds to navigate. Yes, there are lots of "how-to" instructions on the site. But, unfortunately, too much of it is 'geek speak' and beyond the grasp of the average netizen. And sites like Zapier are working diligently to integrate Stripe with eBay (and Amazon). So all we can do is wait.
YHC To The Rescue
But if you are one of the countless website owners, designers, developers, or dabblers trying to figure out how to integrate Stripe with your site -- help is just a click away.
YHC has created a simple interface that will let you enter the information for your product or service (name, costs, recurring billing, and most importantly, a redirect link (which frees you from being there and lets your customer get the digital goods as soon as they pay you).
All you do then is drop the HTML code that it creates into your (static or blog) website. Many designers are already using this service for their clients (and themselves).
The interface creates your Stripe payment button without muss, fuss, or any programming skills necessary.
You can create payment buttons at:

Many People Think that The Law of Attraction (LOA) is Hot Air But...
Many People Think that The Law of Attraction (LOA) is Hot Air But... Life is vibrational!
What do I mean?
Have you ever walked into a room and didn't like the "feeling" it had? Or have you ever met someone and liked them instantly?
Back "in the day" hippies use to talk about vibes. Their mantra was "peace, love, and happiness." Weed smoking aside, these people were learning to tune into a higher/happier vibration.
Sometimes we are on the same vibration with people we don't know or haven't even met.
Example; have you ever chosen a domain name that was already taken? It happens all the time. Imagine, someone, sometimes on the other side of the country, had the same insight as you about the same idea.
Quantum Physics teaches us that:
"Your consciousness affects the behavior of subatomic particles."
In 2006 the documentary "What the Bleep!?: Down the Rabbit Hole" went into great details about this whole science. It reveals the link between quantum mechanics, neurobiology, human consciousness and day-to-day reality.
I believe that, in life, there are no coincidences.
The fact that you are reading these words is not an accident. Your clicking and searching has brought you to this article and, perhaps, what comes next (more about that in a second).
Research on LOA shows that many are folks online are looking for:
law of attraction success stories love
law of attraction success stories money
law of attraction relationships success stories
law of attraction success stories ex
law of attraction success stories getting ex back
law of attraction success stories weight loss
Today more and more people are learning about LOA from the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. The essence of Abraham–Hicks’ teachings since 1986 has been presented as follows:
– Individuals are physical extensions of the non-physical.
– People are in their bodies because they chose to be.
– The basis of life is freedom; the purpose of life is joy.
– People are creators; they create with their thoughts.
– Whatever people can imagine totally & completely, by creating a perfect vibrational match, is theirs to be, or do, or have.
– Individuals choose their creations as they choose their thoughts.
– Emotions indicate what people are creating, either consciously or subconsciously.
– The Universe adores people; it knows their broadest intentions.
– Individuals should relax into their natural well-being, and know that all is well.
– Life is not meant to be a struggle, but a process of allowing.
– People are creators of “thoughtways” on their unique “paths of joy”.
– Actions and money are by-products of focusing on joy.
– Individuals may depart their body without illness or pain.
– People cannot die; their lives are everlasting.
Yet, many are still frustrated because that hear the teachings but can't seem to apply them in their daily lives. Most people are still trying to solve the riddle regarding:
- Becoming healthier
- Finding true love
- Creating financial abundance
Much of the failure to get results has to do with the negative thoughts that we adopted at an early age and are still repeating today.
Fear may be the barrier holding you back from experiencing the joy and happiness that you want in life. Discover how you can break the cycle at the link below:

Finding a Sales Rep - What You Should Know First
Reading these words means that you already know the important role a sales rep plays in generating income.
As the saying goes; "nothing happens until somebody sells something!"
A good sales rep can take your business to the next level. Of course it’s hard trusting a new person with such a critical task.
The questions immediately race to your mind:
- Are they dependable?
- How much will they want?
- Will they actually generate sales?
Perhaps the biggest question of all is; will they generate sales fast enough to become an asset instead of a liability?
One of the smartest angles for finding a sales rep is to find a happy customer who is willing to promote your business part-time. After all they have already proven that they like your product/service.
Now you can give them a chance to rake in some extra money and help grow your business.
But there is significant risks hiring a salesperson:
Will they be a good ambassador for your brand?
Are you training a new competitor?
Can you trust them with your money?
As a business owner feeling the pinch of low product sales you know that hitting the 'tipping point' could drastically change things.
If you can build up enough momentum with your product sales then exponential growth is likely.
Before hiring a sales rep there are a few areas of your business that may need inspection:
1) Do you have a sales process in place?
2) Are they collateral and promotional materials for new reps?
3) Are you clear about their compensation?
4) Have you written a clear job description for the new rep?
5) Do you have a script for the new rep to use?
One of the best ways you can tap into the benefits of your product or service is by surveying happy customers.
- Why did (do) they buy from you?
- What don't they like about the product or service?
- Have they ever referred you to someone else?
- What could you do to make your offering better for them?
Yes, hiring a salesperson could be exactly what your business needs. But there is ground to pave before bringing them aboard.

Lead Pages Versus Alternatives: Reviews and Warning!
Lead Pages Versus Alternatives: Reviews and Warning!
Everywhere you look Lead Pages are being recommended for website landing pages. But exactly what is a landing page?
In online marketing a landing page, sometimes known as a "squeeze page", "lead capture page" or a "lander", is a single web page that appears in response to clicking on a search engine optimized search result or an online advertisement.
The Idea is Simple.
When someone comes to your website you should first attempt to capture their contact email in case they leave before getting the gist of your site or taking advantage of your offer.
The real reason for this is because the bounce rate (how long someone stays on your page) is so high for most sites that it negatively impacts sales.
And, after all, that is the reason you've gone through all the time and effort to create your website - to make sales.
If someone does 'bounce away' from your landing page after entering their email address you can continue the conversation via email. Unless, of course, they have given you a bogus email address in the first place!
Many visitors type in fake email addresses to get to the offer on the other side of the landing page. Somewhere in the great cosmic internet void there are millions of phoney Yahoo or Gmail addresses that will never be confirmed.
I will reveal how to deal with this BIG problem in a second (and, with the number of emails, making them confirm their 'correct' email address is NOT the best solution).
Landing Page Strategy
The typical strategy involves bribing visitors with digital goods. They will receive these goods (via email) when they opt-in to your offer.
A few of the items that you can give away include:
- A resource list or rolodex
- Training course sent via several emails
- Free report or whitepaper
- An ebook
- A "how to" video
- Mp3 that reveals useful information
- Discount on a valuable training etc.
All of the focus on landing pages is putting the cart before the horse. Here are the reasons why:
1) Many of the site owners who are worried about landing pages don't even drive enough traffic (visitors) to their site for the landing pages to even make a difference.
2) Many of the sites that do have a decent amount of traffic don't convert! In other words; after the visitors come to the site they don't take action.
I am among the 'counter-wave' internet entrepreneurs who believe that you don't want to waste time making a prospect go to their email box to confirm their opt-in email address.
There are a couple of reasons, based on our testing, why this is actually a BAD idea:
1) The number of shinny offers in your prospect's email box makes this the last place you want them to go.
2) Many visitors will become distracted and NEVER even make it to the email box.
