Would You Like To Improve Your Security?

Not only is ID theft a major issue that can be life changing, legal issues can too. If we don’t know our legal rights – we don’t have any!

Are you interested in always knowing what your legal rights are…especially when it comes to your identity, including protecting it as well as restoring it…if the need should every arise?

If you would like to know more about these two subjects please email me on dannorris42@gmail.com or call me on 407-749-9395.

And then there are respectable, solid, honest ways to create more assets and income…with a solid business opportunity. If you would like to discuss this topic as well…use the information above to contact me.

If you are currently an employee and would like to own your own business, here’s something important to consider. Many times the corporate world can be very appealing and rewarding…I enjoyed working with two Fortune 10 companies for 35 years of my career…in retrospect…I truly wish that I had built an independent company on the side during this time to which I could be the decision maker and reap the rewards…not just for a corporate entity…what about you???

Increase Your Income?

On the business side—

If you’re happy just being someone’s employee the rest of your life and building their residual income and dreams rather than your own, that’s fine.

If you would like to build your future part or full time…and you’re ready to invest the time to discuss business opportunities then I recommend that you contact me.

It is very possible that I could help you reach that financial independence goal that would be so important to you and your loved ones.

Thank You Ted Cruz For Speaking For Americans Against ObamaCare Funding!

obamacarespeech2cruz.floor.gov

Millions of Americans want to thank you Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul and other supporters for speaking for 21+ hours on the Senate Floor on behalf of defunding ObamaCare! Your marathon speech created a lot of good according to many opinions, and you did this in the face of much vocal displeasure by some of your Republican colleagues and especially across the aisle with all of the Democrats.

The reason so many disliked your position is that they will have to answer to their voting constituents on their positions on ObamaCare. This Affordable Care Act Bill, which is in fact is grossly unaffordable, is an albatross hung on the necks of American citizens and businesses. For years the Democrats have promoted a government controlled health care system that would totally control all citizens both with healthcare and their financial lives. They now have legislation in place to do this…and are tightening the noose to get it implemented. Many Americans have no idea what is happening to them.

For this reason I for one am very pleased to see that true American Patriots have expressed the dissatisfaction of the American Public where 60-70% of the population do not want ObamaCare. Today’s post is dedicated to conservative Senators for speaking up for Americans…

Thank You Ted Cruz For Speaking For Americans Against ObamaCare Funding!

Many campaign promises by President Obama were made about ObamaCare which have turned out to be totally untrue. Not only were the American People misled but now the President, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi refuse to stop and acknowledge the trainwreck which is happening, however have granted more than 1400 waivers to companies and organizations to be exempt from the Bill.  Here are a few examples of total untruths presented by President and the Democratic Party…

Obamacare Will Increase Health Spending By $7,450 For A Typical Family of Four

Chris ConoverChris Conover, Contributor      9/23/2013

It was one of candidate Obama’s most vivid and concrete campaign promises. Forget about high minded (some might say high sounding) but gauzy promises of hope and change. This candidate solemnly pledged on June 5, 2008: “In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year….. We’ll do it by the end of my first term as President of the United States.”  Unfortunately, the experts working for Medicare’s actuary have (yet again[1]) reported that in its first 10 years, Obamacare will boost health spending by “roughly $621 billion” above the amounts Americans would have spent without this misguided law.

The Explosion in Healthcare Premiums in One Convenient Chart

Those nerds at the Society of Actuaries have crunched the numbers and gave us a tidy little forecast of insurance premium rate hikes under Obamacare. Oh, by the way, taxpayer subsidies don’t eliminate costs. A “free” elementary economics lesson out there for anyone confused about TANSTAAFL    (There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch).

Congress’s ObamaCare Exemption

The President intervenes to give Members and staff a break.

To adapt H.L. Mencken, nobody ever went broke underestimating the cynicism and self-dealing of the American political class. Witness their ad-libbed decision, at the 11th hour and on the basis of no legal authority, to create a special exemption for themselves from the ObamaCare health coverage that everybody else is mandated to buy.

The Affordable Care Act requires Members of Congress and their staffs to participate in its insurance exchanges, in order to gain first-hand experience with what they’re about to impose on their constituents. Harry Truman enrolled as the first Medicare beneficiary in 1965, and why shouldn’t the Members live under the same laws they pass for the rest of the country?

_________________________________________________________________________

Millions of Americans and Businesses are being adversely affected by the Affordable Care Act Legislation.  It is inconceivable that so many politicians are choosing to ignore the requests of the American People to stop the implementation of the Bill at this time. But this has been their plan all along and Mr. O says hell nor high water is not going to stop them. To quote the usually articulate President this week….”It is not about you…they are messing with me”. Let’s recognize the rights of the people to disagree and act as a leader sir…citizens don’t like your policy…you have lived on being liked for far too long.

Certainly politicians now turning a deaf ear to the public will at some time soon have to face them and answer as to why they chose not to speak up with any objections other than…”this was voted in by the Congress, the Senate, the President and the Supreme Court and no matter how bad it is or how much damage it will do…we will keep this Bill in place”. This answer truthfully translates into…(“we slammed this health care bill down Republican throats because we owned the House, the Senate, the Presidency,  and the lame stream biased Media…and it really didn’t matter what the American people thought about it…they are not smart enough to understand it anyway-we want a federal health care program”).

The Bill was rushed through passage without reading it in the middle of the night by Democrats only, with Nancy Pelosi saying “we have to pass this 2700 page bill to find out what is in it”. The 2700 pages have now been interpreted into 20,000 pages of HHS regulations, most of which are very destructive to people, businesses and the economy of this country. I repeat, more than 1400 waivers have been given by the President to exempt thousands of people and organizations, especially Congress, from the Bill.  This is the height of hipocrosy. The implementation is not on schedule and some factions have received waivers like business which has been granted a one year delay…whereas such a delay has been denied for the public.

In my humble opinion the idiom “pig In a poke” truly applies to the Affordable Health Care Act. Others say it was passed  by “bait and switch” or “sleight of hand”. It will be up to the American voting public to decide if they will consider this to be true and to accept what is being thrust upon them.

10 Questions to Ask When Creating a Social-Media Marketing Plan

BY     September 16, 2013

Ever heard the saying “Failing to plan is planning to fail?” That old but wise adage often rings true when it comes to social-media marketing. Creating a detailed, goal-oriented social-media strategy is just as important as having a rock solid business plan.

“If your social-media plan is to just wing it, your fans and potential customers are going to know,” says Amy Porterfield, social media strategist and co-author of Facebook Marketing All-In-One for Dummies (Wiley, 2013). Worse, it could turn them off of your brand and on to your competitors.

To attract and engage social-media fans and followers — and ideally convert them into customers — you’ll need to carefully map out a clear, effective social-media strategy. Here are some questions you should ask when building your company’s social-marketing plan:

I agree: It’s a lousy picture. But one of the biggest dangers of an economic downturn is the excuse it gives small-business leaders to lie down and do nothing.

These 14 traits show up again and again when examining the reasons behind business success.

How does a small company become successful? Despite the bad news we so often hear about the number of small businesses closing or moving, the news really isn’t all that bad: Thousands of small businesses startup every year, and a good percentage of those companies have learned what it really takes to survive the early startup years and become successful enterprises.

After working with dozens of small companies, I discovered that the successful ones share some common traits. Here, then, are the 14 qualities I’ve witnessed in many of the thriving small businesses I’ve worked with:

Are Prospects Looking For You? Attract Them With A Blog!

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

We are most familiar with personal direct sales situations…where the prospect and the seller meet face to face and discuss needs, wants and solutions.  In a given day the number of transactions that can occur in this manner may range from as low as 0 to as many as 200…depending upon the availability of both prospects and sellers…and the demand for the products and services involved. Usually the seller has performed advertising in the form of newspaper, tv media, direct mail or other method in order to attract the prospect to the sales situation…or it could be that the seller is making cold calls for whatever the reason. The buyer is attracted to the seller because there is something about the offer that is appealing. It could be a special price or certain product…the seller has found a way to attract the buyer to consider the offer. Now do you suppose that buyers are constantly deciding that they are in the market for products and services…and go online to search out their options to purchase? The data says that most shoppers have checked out their options online before buying.  Suppose that you could expose your products and services to 10 times the number of prospects that you are doing today. Would that be a good thing for you and your business? Ok…

The topic today is…”Are Prospects Looking For You? Attract Them With A Blog!

Are you beginning to get the message about the value of blogging? For clarification, blogging is part of a marketing system that provides valuable, educational and entertaining information to viewers on the internet by using attraction marketing or content marketing messages. If viewers become interested in the content of your messages…they will tell you by offering their information and requesting more information from you. Viewers find you by the way that you identify your website and the messages that you send out from your site. And yes there is some technology involved, including copywriting…that is how to you write appealing messages, website design…how to make your site easy to read and appealing, search engine optimization….how to use keywords to gain readers…and more, and especially fine-tuning always to improve your message, your site and your system.

Leads
Prospects

Recently I have focused on the subject of blogging, attraction marketing and content marketing as I am looking to connect with individuals that have interests in these topics.  I invite you to continue to join me to enjoy the blogs…and appreciate hearing from you in the comments. I especially invite you to request a free copy of “The Renegade Marketer’s Manifesto” below as well as a download of “The 7 Great Lies of Network Marketing on the right side of this page.

Why Content Marketing Is King

BY Mikal E. Belicove | October 20th, 2011

When it comes to marketing strategies, content marketing has just been crowned king, far surpassing search engine marketing, public relations and even print, television and radio advertising as the preferred marketing tool for today’s business-to-business entrepreneur.

Late this summer, HiveFire, a Cambridge, Mass.-based internet marketing software solutions company, surveyed nearly 400 marketing professionals about the state of the business-to-business, or B2B, market, and discovered that marketers are retreating from traditional marketing tactics such as search marketing and have made content marketing the most-used tactic in their brand-enhancing tool box. Fact is, according to HiveFire’s B2B Marketing Trends Survey Report, twice as many B2B marketers now employ content marketing as they do print, TV and radio advertising, according to the survey.

How to Make Your Best Employees Even More Profitable

Unfortunately, some of my worst decisions involved hiring the wrong employees. That said, some of my luckiest decisions, have been hiring the right employees. A bad employee will set you back months, if not years, and a good employee will pay for themselves tenfold.

Richard Branson on Decision-Making For Entrepreneurs

Editor’s Note: Entrepreneur Richard Branson regularly shares his business experience and advice with readers. What follows is the latest edited round of insightful responses. Ask him a question and your query might be the inspiration for a future column.

Q: What were your most important managerial decisions — the ones that changed your business? - Volodymyr Kravchuk, Kiev, Ukraine

A: Most good chief executives or entrepreneurs only make three or four key decisions every year. Running your business’s day-to-day operations and managing your team can take much of your time, so there are usually only a few that stand out — the game-changing decisions that can make or sometimes break a business.

Looking back over my career, which now spans more than four decades, there were many occasions when I got it right and a few when I did not. A few guiding principles helped; these are the things I would have liked to have known when I was just starting out.

Dad joke—well it is father’s day. Decisive: How to make better choices in life and work by Chip and Dan Heath offers helpful advice for improving our ability to make decisions. It describes how we can focus on what lies in front of us and ignore many of the background factors that may, in fact, be even more important to the choices. It takes us beyond trusting our gut, on the one hand, and careful analysis, on the other. It helps us to understand some of the hindrances that get in the way of good decision-making, so that we can overcome them and choose wisely.
