Buffett’s annual letter: What you can learn from my real estate investments

In an exclusive excerpt from his upcoming shareholder letter, Warren Buffett looks back at a pair of real estate purchases and the lessons they offer for equity investors.

FORTUNE — “Investment is most intelligent when it is most businesslike.” –Benjamin Graham, The Intelligent Investor

It is fitting to have a Ben Graham quote open this essay because I owe so much of what I know about investing to him. I will talk more about Ben a bit later, and I will even sooner talk about common stocks. But let me first tell you about two small nonstock investments that I made long ago. Though neither changed my net worth by much, they are instructive.

Florida Is The State Where You’re Most Likely To Get Scammed, FTC Report Finds

 By Jillian Berman Posted: 02/27/2013 12:08 pm EST  |  Updated: 02/27/2013 12:32 pm EST

Most people know Florida as the home of Disney World, sandy beaches and senior citizens enjoying their retirement. But Florida has another, more unsavory distinction: It’s the state where you’re most likely to get scammed.

Florida has the highest rate of fraud and identity theft complaints per capita, according to the Federal Trade Commission’s 2012 report of annual complaints. And you’re at risk of getting your identity stolen almost anywhere in the state, nine out of the top 10 metropolitan areas for identity theft complaints are in Florida, the report found.

The situation is especially bad in South Florida, which has been the nation’s identity theft leader since 2010, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The number of identity theft complaints more than doubled in the region between 2011 and 2012.

IRS Apologizes for $60,000 Star Trek Parody

The Internal Revenue Service got chewed out by Congress for wasting taxpayer money on a couple of videos made for a training and leadership conference in 2010. One was a parody of
Gilligan’s Island, but most of the $60,000 spent was for a Star Trek parody that “does not appear to

The notion of a miraculous genius being born smarter and more capable than the rest of us mere mortals charms our curiosity. Robert Greene, author of the popular The 48 Laws of Power (Penguin, 2000), would disagree. The fascination we have in prodigies, he says, is “bogus. It’s completely bogus.” Exceptional talent is about hard work, he says.

Frivolous and Lawsuits Have New Bed Partner: Useless

By consumerist.com            May 31, 2006

Yay! Free money. Clampants got a card in the mail yesterday from the “Benny/Lundberg Settlement” against Sprint, reading:

“You have been identified as a potential member of a Class Action brought by current and former customers of Sprint branded wireless telephone service that will be settling claims.”

While he was a Sprint member before switching over to Cingular, Clampants is less than jumping out of his rollie chair to sign up. Possible benefits pending his participation include a $2.50 long-distance card, or a series of eight quarterly credits totaling no more than $7.

If he doesn’t want to wait that long, he could also get an immediate credit of $15. However, to do so, he’ll have to sign a new two-year contract with Sprint.

Consider A Plan For Personal and Small Business Risks

Do you or your family ever feel at risk about anything? You may be so fortunate that you are blessed with total “peace of mind”! Or maybe some risks concern you. If they do then the next question is do you think you should do anything to minimize those risks? This post suggests that you take a few minutes to reflect on major risk areas in your lives and decide if you should take any actions. As humans, we are much more concerned with fear than with any other emotion that we experience…so why not explore ways to address our fears?

  • Financial Budgeting and Cash Flow Risks… Includes meeting your financial obligations such as paying your mortgage and bills and having enough money to do all the things you want to do including having extra money for travel, college, vacation, retirement, second home and more!
  • Career risks… Are you satisfied with your career and future employment situation? Are your earnings needs being met? Look good for the future? Do you have a Plan B?  Could additional and multiple income streams benefit your lifestyle and degree of financial independence?
  • Disability Income Risks… In the event of accident or long-term illness do you have protection for these possibilities?
  • Personal and Family Legal Risks… Includes those events that are subject to laws, actions by others who may want to file legal actions against you, by people who may not abide by the laws and adversely affect you, traffic violations, court representation and accidents,  which occur and may bring significant legal actions and consequences. What happens to you and your family in case of trivial or traumatic legal issues? Do you have any way to cover these costs? Do you know and trust good attorneys in all fields of law?
  • Identity Theft Risks… The risks associated with someone stealing your personal name and identity and using it or selling it to someone else, using your Social Security number and filing your tax return or using it for employment, your Drivers License number to avoid arrests or to gain the ability to drive, your checking account to gain access to your cash assets, and credit cards to purchase goods illegally. For (12) years now this has been the largest consumer complaint crime in the U.S. and some 30,000 new victims of identity theft wake up each morning to this very horrible event that many times takes professionals to access your private data and years to restore.
  • Medical Risks… Includes health issues whether caused by natural or accidental reasons. Most everyone would agree that if you do not have good health that all of your other aspects of life are very much in question. It is imperative that we maintain good health! Do you have good medical protection to protect you against depletion of your assets as well as adequate cash reserve and/or disability income insurance to sustain you through an extended period of time?
  • Home Ownership and Rental Risks… Includes those risks that occur in the event of fire, flood or personal activities on properties. Do you have insurance on your property, personal items, and personal injury, accident or lawsuit?
  • Automobile Risks… Includes risks of damage or destruction of property and injury to individuals. Do you have also have legal coverage to pay your family’s legal costs to represent you in the case of being charged with accidental homicide? Ask your agent if you have this legal representation? Rarely does an automobile policy include such coverage.
  • Small Business Ownership Risks… Includes thousands of issues involving legal contracts, reading and modifying contracts, legal advice and counsel, legal representation in case of suits,  legal costs, property costs, liability costs, healthcare costs and many others.  Do you have a plan for affordable legal services as a small business owner?

Do you have a budget planned for each of these potential risk areas? Do you think that it may be a good idea to protect yourselves for these risks?

It is my intention to inform you about solutions to solve these issues, at costs that you can afford, who can help you with each, and to give you options of what to do next.  Just contact me on my email at dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

Live That Dream!

Steffie's Treasures
Steffie’s Treasures

About four years ago one of my fellow Christian Emmaus Brothers elected to move to another city to nearer to one of his best friends. My friend had received severe combat injuries while fighting for our country and in my opinion is a brave warrior for our country.  I had the privilege of briefly meeting his lady friend during that moving process, and at that time I introduced myself as a financial advisor working with individuals and small businesses.

This week I learned that this lady had been searching for my telephone number to contact me as she has developed a terrific dream of providing lovely quilts for nursing home patients, and her dream is to first build an internet business of quilt providers and contributors and eventually to have a storefront business for the same purpose. Her idea is really non-profit as she wants to benefit the nursing home patients with lovely quilts, benefit many talented lady quilt makers with a way to market their quilts, and to hopefully gain charitable revenues for associated christian organizations through tithes and contributions.

Her reason for seeking me out was to gain my advice on how to get started in her business. I was delighted to talk with her on the phone for over an hour where we talked over her legal needs to get her business started, her need to develop a business plan to give her business direction, and then to talk about a marketing approach using attraction marketing methods to promote her new business, which is now only about one month old.

For me this entire conversation totally confirmed my reasoning for developing this blog that you are reading now. I know that there are thousands of people that need direction in starting a new business or adjusting the direction of their current business or lifestyle in some ways that would be very helpful. This is exactly what I am working to do with this blog and posts…to provide information and tips to help individuals manage their lives, be more secure and manage their small businesses better so as to make them more prosperous.  I also know that it will take time for individuals to get to know me and trust me that I can help them in this process.  References are available on request.

If Your Target Market Doesn’t Bite, Fish Somewhere Else

Elizabeth Grace Saunders, Young Entrepreneur Council | Aug. 22, 2011

The Challenge: As a woman business owner myself and a confidante to many others, I knew that many women business owners felt stressed out and overwhelmed. Given this knowledge, I initially targeted the marketing of Schedule Makeover(TM) time coaching and training toward female entrepreneurs. Many women wanted to know about the services — and even cried about how stressed out they felt — but they rarely were willing to invest in themselves.

How to Reach Your Target Audience Through Tribal Marketing

If you enter a room full of crying but healthy babies, chances are they all share at least one of the same needs: food, sleep, a diaper, or some undivided attention from a loving grown-up. As they grow into early childhood, they will hit the same developmental benchmarks at roughly the same time, and they’ll still want and need lot of the same basics (snacks, naps, potty, hugs), though they are beginning to assert their distinct personalities

My Sincere Thanks to Lorraine McNulty

If you attempted to read my blog from Wednesday evening and Thursday until 10:00 pm in all likelihood you saw an error message and were unable to access the site for viewing. If you did try and were unsuccessful I sincerely apologize to you for any inconvenience. For (28) hours I agonized over the fact that a software malfunction had caused the entire site to disappear…and I was very concerned about the accessibility of all the post data created since October 2012 with this blog and some (75) posts.

I am pleased to report that all is well now…and I was blessed with the assistance of a highly competent lady in Ontario, Canada who read about my plight on Facebook around 9:30 pm last night and in less than (15) minutes had solved the problem and saved all of my data. For this reason this blog is dedicated to Lorraine McNulty today…a very willing and competent, experienced professional on blogs, WordPress (a very popular blogging platform), and how to examine and correct errors in code of application programs.

Lorraine was very capable and knowledgeable in this area and within minutes she had corrected the coding issues. In return for her kindness I want to give major kudos to Lorraine and to share her businesses below with my readers…as she may very well be able to render assistance to you in some ways.

Do You Need Money To Fund Your Startup Business?

Do You Need Money To Fund Your Startup Business?

Do You Need Money To Start Your Business?
Finally it’s time to start your own business!

 

If you would like to listen to “America The Beautiful” by Ray Charles while you read this post go to the bottom of the page
and start it now….

I wonder how many Americans would start a new business today if they had 1) the money to start it and 2) they thought they have a good chance that they could succeed and 3) they could do it full-time or part-time while doing their present work?

Would it be important to you if I could help you solve these challenges? At no cost to you?

Do You Need...
Start Here

Would you?  If you are one of those…here is a solution for you…

If you would go to my media sites at…

Google+       “Road To Financial Independence” and “Great                                                       Recommendations Now”

Facebook     “Road To Financial Independence”  and “Dan Norris in                                     Longwood, FL”

LinkedIn       Dan Norris

Twitter          “@dannorris42″ and “your_law” and “your_attorneys”

Email              dannorris42@gmail.com

and let me know if you would like to start your business and you are wondering how to solve any of the (3) questions above.

Why would you do that? Well it could be that I could help you to start your business. How can I do that?  By sharing how to solve each of these challenges! If you have questions about my qualifications I invite you to read information under the “About Dan” tab on this blog. And yes, there is no charge for this assistance for you! My assistance is free!

Dan, why will you help me to start a business for free?  And here is my answer…First I know that building a trusting relationship with you will fill a void that you probably now have. You know a lot of people but very few who are truly qualified to help you do what you want to do.  And more often than not you are not sure you can trust them.

Do You Need Funds..?
Info and assistance
www.stauntonseniorcenter.org

The reasons for me  that I will help  are that you come to my blog and posts and you read my information and ever so often a few of you decide that the services and products that I have to offer in the ads on the side and bottom of each post  are valuable to them. Really! Yes, Some of my readers actually like the value of what I offer on this site, and because they enjoy the free information and advice that I give, they return the favor by taking advantage of my products and services by ordering them online. This is the way I receive payment for my services. Zig Ziglar taught me some things…

Zig Ziglar- Memorial Video ( Some of Zig’s most Powerful )

As you think about starting your own business you will have many questions…which is great…I can be one of your professional staff to contact so that you can pick up the phone and say…Hey Dan…can you help me with this question? and I will say…if I can’t then most likely I will know who to refer you to so that you can get your answer at no cost…or to refer you to qualified professionals who will have a free consultation with you and let you know if any costs may be involved and what they are so that you can decide if you want those services.

The point is here to help you move forward so that you can be a real entrepreneur and take that giant leap to start your own business! This is the American Way my friend. More than 99% of the businesses in America are “small businesses” with less than 500 employees….and more than 50% of Americans (120 million individuals) work in a small business!

It would be a real pleasure and opportunity to help you start your business! Just contact me at any of the media addresses above or call me on 407-749-9395.

Just get started on your own Road To Financial Independence plan today!

3 Little Known Factors That Are Affecting Your Success!

 

The topic today is “3 Little Known Factors That Are Affecting Your Success!”

This is another post in a series to share with you that attraction marketing, also called content marketing…can be successful because it has basic principles and strategies that are appealing

to human beings. How many would not prefer ice cream and cake to…well you think of your most non-favorite food. Would you prefer to be enticed with good thoughts or bombarded with the same commercials over and over until you want to change the station. We typically enjoy pleasant things much more than displeasing things. And that is what attraction marketing principles and strategies are all about.

How To Get Started and Get Noticed … Even If You Don’t Know Exactly What To Create

April 5, 2013      By Eric Walker 3 Comments

How To Get People To Care

You can’t get people to care about what you care about. Not even the best persuasion does that. Yet as a marketer, it’s absolutely your responsibility to talk about the topics your audience already cares about.

To accomplish this, sometimes you have to do a bridge.

Let me give you an example of a bridge.

Most marketers don’t want to hear about excel spreadsheet formulas that help to track and optimize Pay Per Click ad spend, right? It’s heavy, boring math stuff.

The One and Only Shortcut That Makes Up For Being a Lousy Content & Copywriter

April 12, 2013 By 5 Comments

Do you realize that the headline of this blog post is a contradiction?

It is.

It’s a contradiction because if you actually obey the “short cut” that you’re about to receive you WON’T be a lousy writer (of any kind).

Here Is The Shortcut

Ditch the jargon, and just be clear.

You don’t need to be persuasive if you can communicate clearly.

Here’s an example of an unclear, full of jargon, makes-no-sense tagline:

“Revenue-focused marketing automation & sales effectiveness solutions unleash collaboration throughout the revenue cycle”

Ugggh!

The IRS and Small Business Owners

Auditing of small business owners by the IRS has taken on a new importance given recent events.

We are coming up on the October 15th deadline for filing taxes for those who were granted an extension since April.

These three articles are provided to assist those interested in keeping up with major tax activities.

We are coming up on the 100th year anniversary of the income tax next April 15th, 2014.

According to  the PEW Research Center non-partisan polling “Tax Fairness” ranks 8th in the order of public priorities for all Americans. The charts for all Public Priorities are shown below.

What Are Your Odds Of Being Audited By The IRS?

Tony Nitti, Contributor

Dear Client,

It’s late March, so forgive me if I come off as a bit harsh, but do you know the old saying, “there are no stupid questions?”

That’s bull.

In fact, there are lots of stupid questions. This time of year, I hear them daily. For example:

No, you can’t deduct your hot tub as a medical expense because your “legs get sore.”

Nor can you deduct the amount paid to prostitutes as “sex therapy.”

And no, you can’t have your company make your bonus check out to your 6-year old son to avoid income taxes, though I admire your ingenuity.

As frustrating as these types of questions may be to field, however, I assure you they don’t annoy your tax advisor nearly as much as this one, which is asked all too often this time of year:

“If I do this on my tax return, what are my chances of being audited by the IRS?”

Public Priorities: Deficit Rising, Terrorism Slipping

January 23.2012

As the 2012 State of the Union approaches, the public continues to give the highest priority to economic issues. Fully 86% say that strengthening the economy should be a top priority for the president and Congress this year, and 82% rate improving the job situation as a top priority. None of the other 20 issues tested in this annual survey rate as a top priority for more than 70% of Americans.

Refreshing Your Content for Better Results

Laura Lee Sparks               March 19th, 2013

Your marketing materials are so important for reaching out to prospective clients. The time and effort that goes into creating the perfect web site or brochure can be intense, but the simple choice of words can play a pretty significant role in the number of folks who make it through the front door. We live in a time when content gets stagnant pretty quickly, though, so don’t forget to revisit your content and give it some tweaking from time to time.

Identity Theft

 

Identity Theft  

What is Identity Fraud?

ID Fraud Incraasing
Identity Fraud Increasing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Identity fraud may occur when someone steals personal information, opens credit card accounts in the victim’s name without permission, and charges merchandise to those accounts. Conversely, identity fraud does not occur when a credit card is simply stolen. Stealing one’s credit card may be consumer fraud, but is not identity fraud. Identity fraud is a synonym of unlawful identity change. It indicates unlawful activities that use the identity of another person or of a non-existing person as a principal tool for merchandise procurement.

Identity fraud can occur without identity theft, as in the case where the fraudster has been given someone’s identity information for other reasons but uses it to commit fraud, or when the person whose identity is being used is colluding with the person committing the fraud…

Protecting your child’s identity

Posted: Wednesday, Apr. 24, 2013
By Gracie Bonds Staples
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

We’re told to monitor our credit, to protect ourselves from identity theft. But who knew to apply that same wisdom to our offspring? Last year the number of identity theft victims reached 12.6 million, up 1 million from the previous year, according to a Javelin Strategy and Research Identity Fraud Report released Feb. 20, 2013.

According to the AllClear ID 2012 Child Identity Theft Report, about one in every 40 households with young children is being affected. “Child identity theft is a fast-growing crime,” said Robert Chappell, a veteran Virginia State Police Officer and author of “Child Identity Theft: What Every Parent Needs to Know.” “Criminals target children because kids have clean credit records and the theft can go undetected for years.

Small Business Owner – Reduce Legal Costs

At a time when small businesses are struggling to survive, here are several cost-cutting topics that may be beneficial to you…

Small Business Owner – Reduce Legal Costs

Real Estate Agents and Attorneys

Depending upon the nature of transactions, the State in which the transactions occur, real estate agents, attorneys and mortgage brokers are usually required to successfully review, negotiate, finance, file and complete real estate transactions. The real estate agent will provide significant expertise in informing and negotiating with the buyers or sellers of the real estate property. The degree to which an attorney is required will vary dependent on the above factors. As Real Estate Agents are the primary representatives of the buyers and sellers, it is their responsibility to resolve and successfully navigate through this complex process. It is by no means a simple process. Considerable education, training and sound judgement is required. During the sales process a real estate agent faces a multitude of questions and legal risks. Many real estate agents want and need affordable and rapid access to qualified professional attorneys to help them successfully accomplish their transactions. Some agents have these legal services provided to them by their broker agency, while others have needs that are not being fulfilled as economically as agents would prefer.

Solutions To America’s Unemployment Crisis

God Bless america
United States

Yes, there are solutions to America’s Unemployment Crisis! And it is up to you and I to provide them until we can find leadership that is truly interested in the welfare and livelihood of the American people.

While driving I truly enjoy listening to a variety of smart, conservative, logical talk show hosts, both local and national. Today while driving to my local places of business I heard some startling figures that point to the real state of our nation. The first was that we are at the lowest number of employed workers in many years. So many people have given up on finding jobs and are no longer counted in the work force…and that it actually benefits the employment numbers game. The second number that I heard was that “real unemployment” is close to 24% when counting everyone that would really like to be working. The third number that was so disappointing is that the Average American family’s wages in 2012 was $31,000 and less than previous years.

I am sure that many of you agree with me that the mainstream media and this administration don’t even want to talk about these numbers…and that is a shame…because you and I have to live with them. Somehow we have to find a way to overcome the bureaucratic government takeover of private sector jobs, reduce regulations, implement a simple tax system such as The Fair Tax, allow the energy sector to build pipelines and mine coal as much
as we can and as much as we need.  Why should we be sending our precious American dollars for gasoline and oil to the far east??? This money could be much better spent at home.

I don’t know about you however I am as active as I can be with my government leaders, letting them know how strongly I feel about every key issue.

I really enjoyed Brian Tracy’s video below…he nailed our situation and offers sound solutions…are you also concerned about our situation and what to do about it? Brian also talks about the 80/20 rule where 20% of the population always continue to reinvent themselves by learning new skills…he is singing in my choir as that is exactly what I am promoting with you.

Identity Theft By Stealing Your Tax Return Rebate

E-File Tax Identity Theft Fraud is Exploding: Here is How to Protect Yourself

by G.E. Miller on February 6, 2013

As with anything, when the majority of a population uses something, it usually becomes the target of malicious or criminal activity. Just ask Microsoft Internet Explorer engineers.

Now that over 80% of tax returns are e-filed with the IRS, the thieves have found clever ways to claim your tax refunds through fraudulent identity theft, as I alluded to in Monday’s tax return guide.

E-filing had such a good thing going there for its users – quicker returns, easier to catch errors, no trip to the post office, and the peace of mind that your return reached its destination. And the IRS loves e-filing because they result in easier audit pulls, electronic data storage, and fraud detection.

5 Places Where You Should Never Give Your Social Security Number

By Adam Levin | Credit.com – Fri, Mar 29, 2013 3:29 PM EDT

Every time you go to a new doctor or dentist and they give you a clipboard brimming with documents to fill out and sign, notice how they always ask for your Social Security number? Do you dutifully give it up? Did you ever wonder if they really need it?

I once asked a doctor why he wanted it. His response: “I don’t really know. I guess it’s because we’ve always asked for it.” (In actuality, most doctors ask in case your insurance doesn’t pay the entire invoice and/or to fill out a death certificate if you die. Offer a next of kin who knows the number instead, and your phone number for billing issues.)

THE ATTRACTION MARKETER’S MANIFESTO

Attraction Marketing Manifesto
Attraction Marketing Manifesto

Success in your own business, internet marketing or any other business, comes from making intelligent business decisions in all areas. In the last two years I have found two incredibly good business opportunities that are second to none. The first is an internet marketing approach that applies to any business ranging from internet marketing to storefronts. The basic principle that makes this approach so successful is that it is based on your prospects and customers finding you as opposed to you finding them. Technology has given us communication tools and other marketing techniques that allow people to search for what they want on the internet by typing in a few keystrokes. The savvy business person now needs to find marketing mentors that can help them in learning about Attraction Marketing and how to go about it.

Renegade Marketing
Ann Sieg
Renegade Marketing

I am fortunate to have found Ann Sieg whom I consider the leader in Attraction Marketing strategies and training…and she has trained some 350,000 people around the world so that they can be profitable in their businesses. There is an offer below to provide you with a free copy of Ann’s highly interesting e-book…The Attraction Marketers Manifesto!

My secrets to success for those who choose to work with me also include mentoring and guiding them as to how to proceed in the study of necessary information and techniques. I have always been a do-it-yourselfer…rarely asking for any assistance…however after three months of determining my own direction…it was obvious that I needed to be a participating member of Ann’s Renegade Marketing Team…a closed group of more than 1000 professionals sharing information on how to best learn and implement Ann’s attraction marketing techniques.

As a result of my involvement with the Renegade Marketing Team I have been fortunate to receive the mentoring of a highly competent member of this team,  Edwin Cabrera, http://edwincabrera.com/Online Marketing Strategies – Online Marketing Consultant who has provided his knowledge and services to me for several weeks now..and this has been invaluable.  Also assisting me are several others who have many years of experience and expertise to help me become successful.

My important point is that it is rare that you can be successful by yourself…you need the right marketing strategy, the leading key mentors, and willing and competent individuals who will share their secrets to success on an ongoing basis. If you want to begin modern-day techniques of marketing your business, increasing your customer base and increasing profits. If you would like to build your internet marketing business with the latest marketing technologies…like “getting people to come to you rather than you sorting through them” to find warm prospects, I am really impressed with Ann Sieg’s excellent work for the last several years on Attraction Marketing! The Attraction Marketers Manifesto…Click here now to get your free copy!

Don’t Believe The Debt Ceiling Hype: The Federal Government Can Survive Without An Increase

Jeffrey Dorfman, Contributor

Ignore what you hear and read in the news. The federal government actually reached the legal debt ceiling about four months ago. Since then, the government has been financing its monthly budget deficit by stealing/borrowing money from other government funds, like the federal government employees’ pension fund. In about two weeks, the government will run out of tricks to keep operating as if nothing has happened. If the debt ceiling is not raised by then, the government has to balance its budget.

That’s right. As much as the politicians and news media have tried to convince you that the world will end without a debt ceiling increase, it is simply not true. The federal debt ceiling sets a legal limit for how much money the federal government can borrow. In other words, it places an upper limit on the national debt. It is like the credit limit on the government’s gold card.

What is the Law of Attraction?


What is the Law of Attraction?

Are you attracted to those you love? Your partner?  Your mate?  Your children?

Are you attracted to your friends?…Your family members?…Your

Let Prospects Find You!
Attraction Marketing
Image-easym6.com

neighbors?

Are you attracted to your groups, schools, organizations, animals?

Are you attracted to anybody?  Are you attracted to anything?  Everybody? Everything?

This exercise is to motivate you to think about the magnetism of attraction and to ask yourself why if you are or not attracted to someone or some thing.

What is very obvious is that we are attracted to some people, beings, things,  and so on while not being attracted to others. And in many cases it is difficult to explain our feelings.

Yes, the Law of Attraction applies in essentially everything we do!

And another important element to recognize is that we have “relationships” with most of those to whom we are attracted. Therefore the question, does being attracted to someone or something mean that it is easier to begin a relationship with that person? It certainly seems that the answer is yes. Then reading Dale Carnegie’s great book on “How To Win Friends and Influence People” is certainly important to our development right?

So now, let’s apply the “Law of Attraction” to marketing our products and services so as to generate profit ok!

If you were marketing a product or service and If you were to try to get all of your family members, relatives, friends, email contacts, meetup contacts, and those you see in the mall… and so on to buy what you are marketing, I bet you would experience a lot of frustration. The reason is that some may not be looking to buy what you are selling! And so then you make a warm market list of all the people who you know….probably 300-500 contacts usually…and you approach them as well with your products and services…how does this work out for you?

For some it could be very well however for most it becomes a very challenging investment of time…writing the list, making phone calls and making contacts with each person, meeting with them….and if you have been successful with more than 3% you are exceptional! I call this approach “harassment marketing”…taking advantage of your relationship or incidental contact with someone to ask them to do something or buy something that they do not like or have no interest.

Now let’s try another approach called the “Law of Attraction”! For more than 100 years this phenomenon has been studied, books have been written, movies made, however it is yet to become an exact science as is mathematics, physics, chemistry and the like. What this is to me      is a nebulous concept that truly works. I look at the practicality of attraction….and that is virtually why I do everything that I do. I am attracted to this person, or this concept, or this opportunity, or this idea…you name it.

Are you this way as well?

As I search for information on Attraction Marketing I find a considerable amount from creditable people….particularly the movie made in 2006 called “THE SECRET” and available in full on YouTube. Personally I enjoy two more examples of Attraction Marketing…the first is a 1989 movie called “FIELD OF DREAMS” in which the concept of “build it and they will come” became a national treasure concept about baseball.

I also think about Steve Jobs with Apple Computer, who I think was a genius of technology and attraction marketing. Look what he did to attract buyers who loved his products..not just a brand…but usable, friendly products, because people liked them!…and then how about the social media concept of “liking”.

I am beginning an in-depth study of the Law of Attraction…motivated recently by meeting a very intelligent marketing professional by the name of Ann Sieg…who is teaching me and many others her concepts of Attraction Marketing. I am intrigued as this lady with 19 years of marketing experience has now trained some 350,000 people on Attraction Marketing and is considered the industry expert on the subject by many.

I am very impressed with the thoroughness of her detailed, professional, non-hype, very affordable training programs and the community of some 500+ people who are proceeding through the comprehensive training programs as I am. Even with nine years of college in my early years including a degree in marketing, and many more years of real business experience across the U.S., I am excited to listen and learn from all that is being presented. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is thinking about being successful in marketing, no matter what your business or situation. This information could help make you much more successful in whatever business or opportunity you are in…and also possibly help you become a more fun person to be with as well. I think we all would like to be considered likable and attractive!

Let me introduce you to my mentor on Attraction Marketing, Ann Sieg…

I encourage you to take advantage of these excellent tools developed by Ann over many years of trial and error…and then she achieved excellent earnings following these early years of frustration. For me these documents were so exciting that I focused on them for several days in order to get Ann’s initial recommendations implemented as rapidly as I could. Many others have felt the same way. And the learning curve goes on and on.

For Deanna Evertt – A Letter of Appreciation and Recommendation!

My topic today is a testimonial…For Deanna Evertt

This is “A Letter of Appreciation and Recommendation”!

Deanna lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is a very experienced professional in the graphic design, advertising, copy, marketing publishing industry. Deanna is an active member of the Daily Marketing Coach organized by Ann Sieg, industry leader for Attraction Marketing including the Renegade Marketing Team and The Inner Circle.

Marketing Pro
Deanna Evertt

I invite you to visit Deanna Evertt’s  EverBetter Marketing website at

http://www.everbettermarketing.com/

My reasons for giving this testimonial are directly related to a recent professional introduction to Deanna at the private Daily Marketing Coach Facebook Page. The scenario goes like this…Edwin Cabrera, also of the Daily Marketing Coach…and a personal mentor to me on my marketing system…recommended that I write a book on one of my key projects on which I have a great deal of passion. I began writing the book and designed the cover given the tools and experience I have as a early career mechanical designer. Enter Deanna Evertt…who saw my book cover design on The Daily Marketing Coach. For many years Deanna has designed book covers and book content for many brick and mortar companies. She is exceptionally talented in “book cover design” and all aspects of publishing a new book.

After seeing my initial book cover design on the DMC FB Page, Deanna contacted me proposing that we work together on the book project and that she would design a new book cover and help me to format the interior copy of the book to prepare it for the publishing process. We reached a working agreement at that time and in my enthusiasm I expected to complete and have the book published within two weeks. I had elected to self publish the book using Amazon and their self-publishing company CreateSpace. I had never written a book before, much less published one, so you can imagine how challenging this exercise turned out to be.

After completing the book and cover design for the first time and having it ready for submission to Amazon/CreateSpace for publishing, the approvals for some aspects of the book did not come through and as a result the book needed to be rewritten. I live in Orlando, Florida and Deanna lives in British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, and my mentor Edwin Cabrera lives in Manassas, Virginia. Even though the significant geographic separation of each of us we were able to jointly collaborate on the design of the book. I rewrote the book, Edwin gave his editor approval comments, and Deanna redesigned the cover as well as formatted, proofed and contributed to the interior pages…and within three weeks  the book has now been published for international distribution on 7/20/2013… on both CreateSpace which publishes paperback versions and Amazon Kindle KDP which provides the electronic E-Book versions. Interestingly there are different database criteria for each of these publications

I extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to Deanna and Edwin for their major contributions on the creation, design and publication of my first book! This recommendation is intended to inform those interested in book design and publication that I highly recommend Deanna Evertt for any book that you may consider! She is highly professional, competent and talented. I will call upon her for any future book that I write and publish.

Further, Edwin Cabrera has been so very instrumental in guiding me up the ladder of personal development as a Marketing Trainer…and I am grateful to him as well!

Thank you very much Deanna!!!                     And Edwin!!!

They both received credit in the book foreword. And by the way, this book shares

So Will You Ever Be Ready To Become Rich?

If you become what you think about…Are you ready to become rich?

Many believe that the Law of Attraction can be very important in the process!

imagesTheyBecomeRichandPowerful
Become Rich

Procrastination is a wonderful pastime! It allows us to enjoy the moment without any reason to be challenged! Unless you happen to be challenged by the world of opportunity that is offered to you every day! Would you really like to become rich?  Nowhere in the world…other than the United States…is there such freedom of opportunity, speech and pursuit of happiness. If you don’t know this then you should really travel the world and discover it for yourself.

Since we have this opportunity you would think that 50%+ of our population would be jumping on the chance to become financially independent, another way of saying becoming rich,  and to take advantage of the opportunities….and the numbers are growing but nowhere near what they should be.  But this will change. The current leadership will try to stop all creation of wealth or to take it away from the wealthy….but this kind of regime even with the compromising, unprofessional press will not stand. This is not America my friends….and the number of Americans unhappy with lack of employment, downgraded lifestyles, costs of fuel while buying it from the Mideast, rising food prices, more taxes, too much regulation on businesses, incorrect priorities for spending  , and having less fun is growing every day.

I thank you for reading my posts….and let me know what you would like for me to write about…enjoy!

Here’s a look at the industries where U.S. companies with $10 million or less in annual sales have shown the highest and lowest percentage change from Jan. 1 to Dec 31, 2012.

Opportunity Missed in U.S. Bailout?

By CHRYSTIA FREELAND | REUTERS<
Published: November 22, 2012

LONDON — Sometimes, the aftermath is more devastating than the storm. That is the story of the 2008 financial crisis. It was disastrous at the time, but what has been worse is how long it has lingered. That halting recuperation is why the global economic meltdown is still at the center of the political debate in the Western world.

SEO from a Newb’s Perspective

April 1st, 2013 – Posted by HappyBrooke to Content & Blogging

Sometimes it’s fun to temporarily place yourself back in the mindset of a beginner. You probably can’t remember the day before you understood SEO backwards and forwards, can you? Well, I’m still there. (Yes, thank you for the supportive smiles and knowing looks.) I still don’t understand it all; but I’m on my way, and I’m making progress.
