Since I live in Kentucky people are always asking me about the Kentucky Derby and horse racing. Today Amazon Kindle is offering a free download of a book called “The Elite Elleve”. I don’t know of a better way to brush up on your horse racing fans.
When I started in the industry over 30 years ago I had a large poster in my office. It was a quote from Dr. Forrest Shaklee which said.

"I never see failure as failure only as a chance for me to refine my skills" I don't know where I heard this, or who said it, but I have never forgotten this quote.
Maybe it is just me, but there seems to be more people that perceive themselves as vitims now than at any other time I can recall. Not a week goes by that someone doesn't tell me they are hesitant to try a new marketing strategy because of their past failures.
I just want you to know, it is ok to fail !!
In fact failure is required for us to ultimately succeed!
We seem to have become a society of people that are afraid to fail and hold on to past failures in our mind and live them over and over.
Do you remember the TV… Continue reading
It is not that complicated. People spend all their time
looking for the easy, magic, push button system.
Unfortunately there are people everywhere promising
they offer success systems for the lazy and unmotivated.
They know that is what people want to hear. Just
look at the people lined up to buy lottery tickets!
I have no doubt it is easier to take advantage of the
ignorant than to tell people the truth, but I don't know
how some people sleep at night.
You cannot fight the way it is. If you go against the
wisdom of the ages any success you have will be
Successful people in all walks of life are simply willing
to do what most people aren't.

Thanks to my buddy Charllie Thackston for sharing
this with me!
I had not read these before. Outstanding!
At a time when our president and other politicians
tend to apologize for our country’s prior actions,
here’s a refresher on how some of our former
patriots handled negative comments about
the United States.
These are good
Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France
in the early 60’s when DeGaulle decided to pull
out of NATO. DeGaulle said he wanted all US
Military out of France as soon as possible.

Those of us who have been in marketing for awhile know
Don has been doing infomercials for many years. He was
recently charged with several crimes. His latest promotion
has been “The Greatest Vitamin”
Like many of you, I ordered Don’s “Make Money with Tiny
Classified Ads Course” several years ago. I think it was
$40 or so, and the information was solid.
I obviously don’t know the details or the specifics.
However, I did check out some “scam” websites from
the article and read a ton of quotes like the one below:
In general most Scam website are for people that made
bad decisions to vent or blame someone other themself

I just had an email from a friend, saying this YouTube video was
worth taking a look at:
and it is! It is not earth shattering, but it is inspirational
and the message is based upon the truth and wisdom of
This is what blows my mind.
As most of you knows, YouTube allows you to vote
video’s up or down. Like most of you when I see something
that will inspire people I will vote it UP.
It has to be horrible or an outright lie, for me to ever vote it
down, I would just say nothing, or express nothing, before I

The video rankings at the time of this writing blew my mind:
1,367 likes, 131 dislikes
It is sad to think that someone is so disgusted with their… Continue reading
