You’re gonna love the new theme song from Phil Mason. If you thought last years song was awesome, you’re in for a treat with this years.

Check it out and give it some lovin’ on digg, stumbleupon and all the rest. And I’ll be back later with my 2nd half of yesterday’s post about this years cool tools.

Intermission – Kelly Clarkson

So, if you’ve read my blogs at all, you likely know I like Kelly Clarkson. And just for you, here’s a live version of one of my favorites – (just because it’s good to take a break now and then)

Quicksilver

30 Aug

This is not what I intended to write about today, but I just had to share another cool tool – Quicksilver. Now, if you’re not on a Mac, this will mean nothing to you but read on anyway. 😉

I have had Quicksilver installed for months but never really knew how to use it. Just hadn’t had the time to figure it out or look at any tutorials for it. Anyway – I saw Ed use it a week or so during one of the 30dc videos and thought I really should learn how to use it.

Well, let me tell you – it’s really cool. I can find any THING on my computer, launch any program on my hard drive with just a few keystrokes. Very cool.

Here is a good intro video – enjoy!

And if you want to learn even more, here are two good websites –

Magic happens when . . .

21 Aug

Magic happens when all the pieces come together. And that’s what I think has happened in today’s training. Everything Ed and Dan have been teaching step-by-step have all culminated today into a big picture.

I like big pictures. Details are great too. But big pictures show me how the whole, the sum of those parts. And that way, I can follow the trail. It’s like looking at the whole map before embarking on the trip. That works for me. Honestly, I wish Ed had given us the map at the beginning so we could follow along at each bend. For me, that would have made much better sense instead of just blindly going along.

But I realize that’s just me. 😉 And many others will not see it the same way. That’s ok.

Embarking on this journey was interesting for me. I’m not usually one to just follow along blindly. So this has been an education in several things in addition to the marketing and business materials we’re learning.

So, today’s training has been great. I can now go back, look at all the steps we’ve been through, put them into my mindmap and see what’s been happening as we’ve traveled this road. I can assess where I’ve been and see if I’m still on track to get to the destination. That’s worth a lot and is more valuable than anything else. Well, except maybe the research.

In any case, I’ve enjoyed todays podcast and PDF. Gotta go get my new copies of iLife and iWork – I know, I’m behind here. But I’ve been following the 30 Day Challenge so closely, I haven’t had a whole lot of time for much else, though I have taken time out to spend with my family and take care of normal daily things. Just had no time for extras like shopping at Apple. 😉

Anyway, thanks Ed for another great lesson!

Oh – and for the record, I really like Kelly Clarkson.

The A-Z of Success

5 Aug

My friend Tom over at tomledree.com gave me permission to post his video here. I was highly impressed by this video because of it’s simplicity. Well, that and of course the wonderful song – one of my favorites.

Have a look. It fits in very well with my entire mission in life — “To use my compassion, writing and intuitive gifts to assist others in discovering their Personal Power.”

Thanks, Tom, for allowing me to share your wonderful video! 😉

Niche•ing

2 Aug

Here’s a quick, short slideshow about what I learned today on Day 2 of The Thirty Day Challenge about Niches.

Here’s a very distilled version –
A niche should be:

1. Something you’re passionate about
2. An area in which you’re knowledgeable
3. Subject with a broad customer base (not huge, though)
4. A place where there is a problem to solve
5. Linear

Recently, I heard Pat O’Bryan’s Unseminar series (I’m part of his Portable Empire University) and the above are what Pat recommends. He also recommends hanging out in forums and says that keeping your eyes and ears open in forums and on networks for those problems people are asking for help with is a good way to find niches.

The biggest thing I took away from the sessions –

“Every problem is a product.”
