Over the past 5 Years Dawn and I (Dave) have been building our brand online. You know what I mean and probably know all the time it involves staying up-to-date. We had multiple blogs, founded/created/managed communities such as Tribe Syndication Association (TSA), used Social Media sites such as Facebook (Groups, Like Pages and etc.), Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, Digg and the list goes on…
I guess this all started after being in a Network Marketing company that told us to make a list of our friends and family (Old School Marketing) and I vowed that I would learn a better way. Well we learned! We learned that “New School” methods take a lot more work. Don’t get me wrong, I am not opposed to work as long as there are measurable results.
Learning from both systems we integrated “Old School” and “New School” methods into what I like to call our “Hybrid Marketing” system. Taking both approaches into account, we had Much Better results compared to just using the New School approach. Now I am not saying that the New School methods DO NOT WORK to some degree but, when I really looked at this industry, I noticed that 90+% of the MOST SUCCESSFUL Network Marketers in the WORLD hardly have an online presence at all.
During these past 5 years, I would venture to say that we have spent well over Read more…
This past week we had the privilege to be interviewed by Teach Jim for The Teach Jim Show. It is always an honored to be interviewed by great people like Jim. If you have not been exposed to Teach Jim and his very educational show, you’ll really want to check it out and follow the upcoming shows. The main topics that Jim teaches about are: business, education, legal, science, news and politics so there are relevant subjects for today’s business person. Jim is so easy to talk to and he made us feel like we’d known him for a long time.
We were introduced to Teach Jim and his show a few weeks ago when he did a great interview with Gavin Mountford. The subject of that interview was Gavin’s very efficient Daily Method of Operations based on his planned and followed time management system. We were impressed with the information that Gavin shared and Jim’s great way of bringing out the best. You can go to Teach Jim radio Show and to the Teach Jim blog to catch all you may have missed from Teach Jim’s interview with Gavin Mountford.
TSA Attracts Another Great Leader
Another very notable focus for Teach Jim is his recent involvement in Tribe Syndication Association (TSA).
He is just another example of the high quality entrepreneurs that TSA attracts. It’s like Dave and I and all the members of TSA are attracting an ever-growing group of like-minded online entrepreneurs that have one common goal – to help everyone else attain a high level of exposure on the internet. I’m sure that the TSA members attracted TSA to them. It’s a two way streak and we all benefit.

Can you build a HUGE network marketing organization only using online methods and strategies like Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and etc…? NO!
Why is that you ask? Well it wouldn’t be much of an article if that was the only answer. So let’s go a little further and I’ll explain why I said “NO!”
I see and hear it all over the place. “Old School Marketing Methods Don’t Work Anymore!” Waa, Waa, Waa. Actually, I bought into these beliefs myself awhile back. It is true that nobody really wants to make a list of their Friends and Family but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. The truth is, it works and people are still making a ton of money using these methods. As a percentage of people in these businesses, more are still making larger sums of money using Old School methods vs. marketing online. Let me explain.
If you asked me last year if old school network marketing methods still worked in the industry my answer would definitely have been, NO! However, with all the information we have bombarding us today people have become more informed of scams and illegal programs. In short, everyone is a hundred times more skeptical now than anytime before. That being the case, we need to get in front of people building relationships in order to build something huge. Plus, you need to make the method so simple that ANYONE can do it.
Online marketing is a great way to build leads but, Read more…
Imagine a VIRUS that gathers intelligence, including keyboard strokes and screen captures, uses your microphone, eavesdrops through Skype, MSN and other chat programs, accesses storage devices, networks, Wi-Fi, USB, system processes and even turns on Bluetooth devices like your phone and other devices. Well imagine no further, it’s real and it’s called sKyWIper (aka FLAME).
FLAME is so sophisticated that it has been running under the radar of many government agencies for the last couple of years. This is a highly massive sophisticated piece of malware and has just recently been found infecting computer systems across the Middle East. Unlike most viruses and malware, FLAME is believed to be part of a well-coordinated, ongoing, state-run cyber-espionage operation.
How can you Stop Flame? Unfortunately You Can’t!
“It’s a blend of artificial intelligence with the capacity to be updated and become more sophisticated on the fly,” said Tom Kellermann, a security expert with Trend Micro and a member of U.S. President Barack Obama’s commission on cybersecurity. Read more…
Once Google connects all the platforms together under one profile, they can easily become more profitable by targeting specific advertisements customized for you based on your search results. Let’s just say for an example that you are here in Florida and you do a Google search on Disney World and then you watch a video on Youtube (which Google owns), then all of a sudden Google suggest you watch a video on Sea World which is located in the same town.
Brilliant! Google wins by making money from the Sea Worlds’ advertising budget and then Sea World wins because after you go to Disney, you’ll probably go to Sea World.
Google claims it collects information from its users to provide better services to all of their users. Whether it is figuring out where you live or something even more complex like which ads you find useful or even the people your follow online, The Big G knows you better than your best friend or even your spouse!
Many privacy advocates and/or competitors claim that Google is violating users’ privacy. European Union authorities say these new privacy rules breach European law. The EU is mainly concerned by things like Google linking the data in your web history with data in your Gmail account, as well as the fact that it links your location to your data.

If you were a Victim Of Identity Theft, What Would You Do? I read an article titled “To Catch an Identity Thief” and it got me thinking what people would do if this happened to them. After reading this post, ask yourself if you were a victim of identity theft like the lady mentioned below, what would you do?
The article was about a lady named Karen Lodrick and her life was a living hell after becoming a victim of identity theft. Because of our business I hear a lot of people say stupid things like “they can have my identity.” Really? This has to be one of the dumbest statements because they don’t truly understand how devastating being a victim of this crime can be to them and their families.
Karen ordered a latte at Starbucks while waiting nervously for the bank on San Francisco’s Market Street to open. She had been anxious and distracted of late but couldn’t help noticing the scruffy looking pair standing next to her: a tall man wearing a navy baseball jacket and a large woman in jeans and Gucci glasses, carrying a brown suede coat and a Prada wallet. The woman looked vaguely familiar. That coat. A cold tingle of fear ran through Karen as she took it all in. The distinctive faux-fur trim along its edges looked as unkempt as the woman who held it. And then BINGO she knew. Karen’s ID had been stolen five months before. Her bank account had been emptied, and her life sent reeling out of control. The coat she was looking at was the same one she’d seen in the bank surveillance tape, worn by the woman who’d stolen Karen’s ID.
The day before, Karen’s bank had called after Read more…
Now days Seventeen Dollars ($17) doesn’t buy you a whole lot in this weak economy. Seventeen dollars can buy you and your spouse two tickets to a movie theater, one good steak at a nice restaurant (not including the tip) or about 5 gallons of gasoline for your car.
The above are just a few examples of what seventeen dollars ($17) can buy you and they may be great, but they do not provide you peace of mind for you and/or your family.
Okay, I know what you are thinking and that’s fine. You are probably asking yourself what is Dave trying to sell me now, right?
