Nothing to sell or teach today. Just a few personal opinions.
What a day that was… I remember we had several people in town in Dallas that day that had flown in for a business meeting. In between crying, staring at the news in disbelief, calling our families and just praying for all of those effected by the tragedies of that day – we scrounged up rent cars for everyone so they could drive back home to be with their own families. The only priority on anyone’s mind was to be reunited with the ones they love so they could just hold on.
I remember my mother calling. She was in Europe at the time and the news was skechy at best. At one point the news mentioned Dallas airport instead of Dulles. I can only imagine her horror when hearing that, (as I was frequently flying in and out of DFW at the time) and I know the relief and gratitude when we were finally able to communicate over the phone that each was alive and well. I remember the feeling of being able to hold my children, and my husband and thanking God that I had them. I remember the tears at the thought that so many families suddenly didn’t have that anymore.
Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined the atrocities that took place here in our own country. It was a nightmare we couldn’t wake up from. But, this nation is strong and great. Through the tragedy came strength and a unity in our nation. We were all one in this together. We all had to deal with it in our own ways. We saw strength, dedication, heroes from the unexpected and some of the greatest acts of kindness and bravery we will probably ever witness.
To the many families who lost someone, or everyone, my prayers are with you and yours. There are no words that could appropriately express my feelings. I cannot and will not even begin to try and imagine the feelings you must be experiencing.
To our soldiers, here and overseas who have and will continue to protect this great nation, my eternal thanks. My prayers are always with you and always will be. The sacrifices you endure in the name of keeping our nation safe, are great. The families who sacrifice so their loved ones can serve their country – thank you as well.
Lets spend today remembering the many that were lost, saying a prayer for their friends and families, and a prayer for our soldiers overseas and at home.
Lets spend today reflecting on the things that really matter – family. Whether its the brothers, sisters and parents you grew up with, or the family you have built around you, let them know you love them and appreciate them.
As for my family and friends, know how much I love and appreciate each and everyone of you.
Try an act of kindness today in honor of the ones who gave so much on that date. Pick up the phone and call someone you haven’t spoken to in a while, just to let them know you are thinking of them. Lend a hand in your community. Give a donation to a local charity. Just pick something and do it. I firmly believe in paying it forward. I’ve seen the wonderful things that can happen from a random act of kindness.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my thoughts and opinion.

When I introduced myself, I promised that I would search for and provide resources for you to build and or expand your internet marketing business.
I promised to do this with good, sound, free or low cost tips, tricks and products to achieve this goal. Well, here is another great resource I have found. Frankly, I think it’s foolish NOT to check it out and give it a try.
Why? Is it a rare thing to find someone giving away something of great value? You bet it is! Are you ready for it? Get ready… because I am going to hand it to you!
I want you to spend a second just thinking over your last few internet purchases. Does this sound scarily familiar?
~~~You spend heaps of money on the latest ‘guru’ offering. Give it a go for a bit, maybe make a couple of dollars back… but get bored. Feel like a bit of a failure because you were told all of those other ‘noobies’ were doing it much better than you…. So you drop it and move on to the next thing… Believe me when I say that you are not alone in this frustrating cycle! Day after day people just like you are losing hope, lacking inspiration and getting ready to throw the towel in.
Maybe this might even sound more familiar:
~~~You start a project You work hard to build it, make it look great and then…. For some reason, nobody is visiting it… It turns out that your website has an enormous amount of competition, against people who have multi-million dollar budgets. Let’s face it, not many of us can compete with that! What you need is a niche.
~~~What if I am not creative enough? == It’s ok! This site, which is completely free – is the perfect option for you.

Have a look for yourself, and grab access – while it’s still free to join!
Till the next time!
It’s no secret to the subscribers that have been with me for a while now that I don’t just recommend everything and anything that comes down the pike. I find it more important to be objective with my reviews so that you can make a sound decision about the products and services you’ll use for your business.
Now I do make money by marketing products online as an affiliate, but I only endorse them if they meet or exceed their stated values. So how does this relate to you? Well, it means that I take an in-depth look at Internet marketing products on the market and I share my objective findings with you so then you can make an informed decision.
Today’s review is on a program called ‘Resell Rights For Newbies’ from Liz Tomey and John Hostler. Now I don’t often get excited about resell products but this is something a little bit different…‘Resell Rights For Newbies’ is actually a complete system designed to teach new marketers how to start and build their own Internet business from scratch, using resell rights products.
The reason the system is built around resell rights products is because of their low barrier to entry. Low barrier to entry simply means that you could quickly and easily secure resell rights products and turn them for profits.You avoid the pitfalls of product creation, yet enjoy the rewards as if they were your own… most importantly keeping all the profits for yourself.
Now with that said, this does not mean if you run out and purchase a 20 pack of resell rights products that you will make thousands the very next day. And that’s why most programs fall short…they sell the sizzle and not the steak. They tell you that by purchasing resell rights products you are sure to make money. You see, it’s still a business and must be treated as such. In order to be successful with Resell Rights products you need to:
• know where to find quality products that aren’t being marketed by everyone under the sun
•know how to set up a web site to market those products
• have the marketing tricks up your sleeve to be able to move the products
• know how to drive traffic to your web site
Thus the beauty of ‘Resell Rights For Newbies’. This is a complete system for profits with resell rights products. It is a step by step program that covers the 4 crucial components above by way of video tutorials, ebooks, and a web based tool kit. The 12 video tutorials, are straight to the point learning tools that will teach you everything you need to know about getting, creating, and starting your own web site and finding quality resell rights products to sell. The 3 info packed PDF’s are filled with valuable information about marketing methods and strategies for selling your new resell rights products. And the ’24 Hour Plan’ PDF was designed to have you making sales and your first profits within 24 hours…
Liz and John really went to town with ‘Resell Rights For Newbies’ and have laid out a system that anyone can follow, regardless of experience level. It’s no fluff and because it’s been done in multimedia, accommodates people with all different types of learning styles. Oh, and if you’re feeling weary because you’ve heard it all before…well, Liz and John have done the unthinkable and made this available for FREE for a limited time.
The bottom line on ‘Resell Rights For Newbies’ is that it’s a weapon you should put in your marketing arsenal…and quickly.

A joint venture is nothing more than an agreement in which two or more partners (or businesses) work on a project for a set period of time. These projects can be short term or long term. Joint ventures can include a wide array of projects and promotions in many forms. The benefits of joint venturing truly are endless. Here is just a list of a few of the things that can be accomplished through joint venturing:
1. You can increase your credibility by teaming up with other reputable, branded businesses. This is great when you are fairly new and still building your reputation. A common method for this is participating in give away events with a better known marketer. It is also widely used when launching a new product you have created. The more well-known marketers you are working with, the larger the list of potential subscribers and or customers.
2. You can get free or discounted products and services. Many marketers will trade products and services for the option of posting or publicizing a review to your list or blog. Not only does this get the word out to more people, it also enables you to build your list. (We always want to build our list!)
3. You can get an edge on your competition. Obviously if you are partnered with one or more people when marketing, then you have the ability to target a much larger audience. This gives you the opportunity to outsell your competition. For example – a well known marketer is launching a new product. You and your partner(s) are affiliate marketers participating in the launch. So are about 50 other people. Your joint venture has a potential of targeting more customers by sending to multiple lists…. that’s a larger target audience….see where I am going?
4. You can solve your business problems. Sometimes teaming up with a partner (especially one with more experience) leads you to some shortcuts or solutions to problems you may have been experiencing in your own business. Learn from their experience and expertise – the time, money and frustration you may save yourself makes this priceless!
5. A great economical reason to participate in a jointventure is the ability to share or offset some of the advertising and marketing expenses you would normally incur. In these times especially, that is a pretty compelling reason to consider joint ventures.
6. There is a lot to be said for volume sales. If you participate in a joint venture and can increase your target audience, not only do you build your list, but you can increase your ROI (return on investment) and possibly lower the cost of your product – or just make more money!
7. Sometimes, participating in a joint venture is just the leg up you may need to create new or increased funding sources and lines of credit.
8. You can find and create new distribution channels for your products. This is priceless and can carry on throughout your marketing career.
9. The alliances you build with other businesses and marketers will open up new opportunities in ways you may not even think of at this time. A great example I saw recently was a product launch of interviews conducted with 5 different marketers in their specific fields of expertise. The person launching this had joint ventured with these individuals at various different times over the last few years and culminated it all now into a new product to sell and teach with. That’s pretty savvy marketing if you ask me.
10. You can almost always offer more bonuses to your customers as a result of combining your resources. Sometimes, when there are several affiliate marketers competing for the same sales – the bonuses are the cincher in the deal.
As I said earlier, these are just a few of the numerous benefits of considering a joint venture opportunity. There are too many more to try and list here today. I probably couldn’t think of all of them right now anyway.
Hope this information is as beneficial to you as I intended. Remember, my goal here is to find you good, solid, free or inexpensive tools, tricks and tips for launching and growing your internet business.

Update immediately to 2.8.4 if you have anything older – update it now!!!
Otto42 of OttoDestruct, a key WordPress developer and supporter, reports that there is an “attack” on older versions of WordPress right now. The number of sites hit by this is growing every hour. Protect your WordPress blog now: UPDATE NOW!!!
Things You Need to Know Now
UPDATE NOW! Reports are that this attack impacts ALL versions of WordPress up to 2.8.4, the most recent release. Report from WordPress on Attack: How to Keep WordPress Secure. Information on the most recent update of WordPress that prevented this attack on updated WordPress sites: WordPress 2.8.4: Security Release.
What Version Am I Using? If you dont have a nag screen that alerts you to update – you have a version that needs updating now. No exceptions.
Some people are suggesting to use a WordPress Plugin for Protection: Do not rely upon a WordPress Plugin to protect you. There are many reports of Plugins that will “help” in the comments. While they might help in other ways, please upgrade now. That is the only solution if your site has not been impacted.
WordPress is Not Secure: WordPress is incredibly secure and monitored constantly by experts in web security. This attack was well anticipated and so far, WordPress 2.8.4 is holding. If necessary, WordPress will immediately release a update with further security improvements. WordPress is used by governments, huge corporations, and me, around the world. Millions of bloggers are using WordPress.com. Have faith they are working overtime to monitor this situation and protect your blog.
Fear of Upgrading: This attack is serious enough to overcome all your fears of updating. If older WordPress Plugins are holding you back, update them to the latest version or replace them with new. If your Theme might break, contact the Theme author and update or replace it. There are thousands of free Themes to choose from, probably some better than what you are using. If you are using a recent version of WordPress, updating is as easy as clicking a couple buttons. If you are using an older version, download the most recent version and upgrade now.
What to do if site has already been attacked: There are two clues that your WordPress site has been attacked. There are strange additions to the pretty permalinks, such as example.com/category/post-title/%&(%7B$%7Beval(base64_decode($_SERVER%5BHTTP_REFERER%5D))%7D%7D|.+)&%/. The keywords are “eval” and “base64_decode.”
The second clue is that a “back door” was created by a “hidden” Administrator. Check your site users for “Administrator (2)” or a name you do not recognize. You will probably be unable to access that account, but Journey Etc. has a possible solution.
To Prevent Your WordPress Blog from Attack, update your WordPress site IMMEDIATELY to the latest version. Change ALL passwords to a strong password immediately, including WordPress blog access for all users, database, FTP, control panels, everything.
If Your WordPress Blog Has Been Attacked: If your site has already been attacked, it appears that the hack attacks the database, going deep. We’re looking for solutions, but the easiest appears to be to export all your content with the built-in XML WordPress export (pre 2.1 versions, try the WordPress-to-WordPress Import WordPress Plugin) and literally remove your WordPress installation totally (save images and general files). DO NOT EXPORT YOUR DATABASE! Install the latest version of WordPress and add the “clean” backup of your WordPress Theme, then import the XML export. The export will contain your posts, Pages, and comments, and hopefully no other hacked code.
“How To Completely Clean Your Hacked WordPress Installation” by Smackdown is a good article on how to reinstall WordPress after being hacked, but take care to keep your export limited to the post content and comments (and Pages), not the entire database as the hack goes into the database.
WordPress has been requesting users update as soon as an update is released for several years. They also now have a excellent team to track down this issue and quickly protect WordPress with any necessary updates.
Please blog and Twitter about the attacks. It’s important that we spread the information throughout the WordPress Community as fast as possible, encouraging everyone to update WordPress. Take care not to promote rumors, just the facts, until we know more.
If you have pertinent information that will help the WordPress team track down and stop this attack, please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check the WordPress Support Forum for more information and support. Also check for news and announcements on security issues and updates on the WordPress Development Blog and in your WordPress blog Dashboard Panel.
Please, keep your WordPress site constantly updated. You are now informed of updates directly through the Administration Panels. Act upon it. The following are additional articles, posts about this security issue.
Lets face it, getting started or building up your online business is all about traffic! Yes SEO is not only valuable, its NECESSARY! Learn what you can about generating websites that are SEO (Search Engine Optimization) friendly. Do your research. When searching for keywords, search for long tail keywords as well. Which leads me to a great new tool available at Google. Its called the Wonder Wheel.
It not only gives you some of the best ranking keywords in your niche, it also gives you related searches. Its a free tool, and it works! When online marketing, a big key is to use all the tools you can find to make your site the best it can be.
Remember, quality gets the customers coming back! If you have good, quality articles, merchandise, and related ads to your niche, then you will get organic traffic to your sites. Keeping that content fresh and updated, keeps them coming back.
Think about it, when you search a keyword and then go to a site, if it has exactly what you are looking for, then it becomes a favorite! If I need to access that info again, or MAKE ANOTHER PURCHASE, I’m going back to the site that had what I wanted in the first place.
Now, getting back to the Wheel, using the tool is easy. Go to your Google Search and type in Camping Equipment (thats my example for today, use whatever you want). Once the results come up, select show options then click on the Wonder Wheel link on your left side of the screen. The results? A wheel is displayed with Camping Equipment in the center, and all the related searches around it – just like a wagon wheel. In my search the additional results that came up were RV supplies, camping gear, camping cooking gear, backpacking equipment, camping world, camping equipment ist, and camping tents.
Well if you have a site that sells equipment, you just got a ready made request form of other items you can offer as well. You have also been given a list of article topics for fresh content, and a list of long tail keywords. Not bad for a free tool!
As I have said before, use all the tools you can to make your sites be the best they can be. Quality and fresh content will keep your users coming back and new ones visiting your site. When you are marketing, remember to make your customers first. Just like in the real world – quality gets your customers and fresh content and great service keeps them coming back for more!
