Hack #41 - Taking Action Without Complete Information - 7/1/2017

Taking Action Without Complete Information - Hack #41

Are you a procrastinator or are you an action oriented individual? Some people want to take action but don't know how. It's not a problem. The problems comes when that problem keeps stirring you in the face asking you: what are you going to do? Your answer probably goes something like this: "Let me think about it," or "I will get to it next week," "I am out of town," and the list goes on, on and on. I have analyzed successful people and the one common thread I notice is they all know how to TAKE ACTION WITHOUT COMPLETE INFORMATION



That what sets them apart and keeps them at the top of the food chain Yes, getting more information about something is great, but by the time you get all the information, the opportunity may have already disappeared. This happens alot in certain highly regulated industries like Financial Services. On the contrary, complete information is always worth its weight in gold. For instance, gathering market intelligence with which to launch a new strategy or enter an unproven territory. In the final analysis, it's not when you make the decision but actually taking action. Did you know that for 90 percent of the decisions we make everyday, we don't need complete information? It boils down to making the decision or not making the decision. Of course, one caveat is if you need to get approval or permission to take action.

Nevertheless, I will submit that you don't need complete information to TAKE ACTION. TAKE ACTION THIS NEW MONTH AND LET'S CIRCLE BACK IN 30 DAYS AND YOU WILL BE SUPRISED AT WHAT YOU'VE ACCOMPLISHED.

Google Hit With A $2.7Billion Dollar Fine By The EU!!

Google Hit With A $2Billion Dollar Fine By The EU!!





According to Reuters, Google has been fined $2.7Billion dollars by the European Union (EU) for "anti-competitive" practices. Full story here

What does that say about the power Google has over global markets? The EU apparently had enough and levied a huge fine to let Google know who is "boss."



Do you think this fine is fair to Google? Is Google anti-competitive? What shopping markets did Google corner? According to people familiar with the case, this fine was as a result of a seven-year investigation. Further, the story continues, Google has 90 days to end the alleged anti-competitive practice or face additional fines.

5 Reasons Why Niche #Podcast Ads Are The New ROI King Of A Growth Hack!

Hack #38

Advertised lately?

I'm sure you got a huge #ROI on your impressions! I'm also sure your sales funnel saw an uptick not to mention the level of conversion you are enjoying. Here are 5 reasons #advertising is in serious trouble and what you can do about it!

1. Advertised on the #socials lately? I'm sure all those likes are showing up on your bottom line. Oh, all those word searches, boosts and views will automatically covert to sales.

2. Advertised on #Radio lately? Those 30 second spots sure do sound great but who remembers what was said in the next minute? Is that enough time to build an enduring engagement with potential client, customers and users of your product or service?



3. Advertised on #Television lately? Watch closely and you will see your ads cut off or be counter programmed just to expend your impressions. Is that an effective use of your ad dollars?

4. Advertised on #Print lately? Print still has a certain level of mystique to it. Enjoy it but soon it will be a thing of the past. All those dollars wasted on paper. Do you remember the last time you looked at the classified section? I thought so.




5. Advertised on #Billboard lately? Now that seems to work if you are on the I-4 or I-75 corridor in #Florida. But you have to spread the billboard every 5 miles or something!
So, advertised on #Podcast lately? Podcast? Yes, on Podcast! If you are not advertising on Podcasts you will be so sorry you let this secret pass you by. Well, it's not a secret anymore. You need to be #podcasting

Ask me how I can help you get started #Podcasting.

Hack #39

Problems Persist At VA As New Overhaul Law Takes Effect


Do problems still persist at the VA? Who is responsible for the long wait times? Are VA employees and leadership taking appropriate steps to help our Veterans get the care they deserve? What will be the result of VA employee malfeasance? Are VA employees negligent in the performance of their duties?

The Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017 marks Trump's 40th law signed.


President Trump just signed legislation into law and said:

"What happened was a national disgrace and yet some of the employees involved in these scandals remained on the payrolls," Trump said just before signing the bill. "Outdated laws kept the government from holding those who failed our veterans accountable. Today we are finally changing those laws."

The Real Reason We Are So Empty - Hack #37 - 6/22/2017

Hack # 37 Do you ever wonder why everything around us seem to be falling apart? People are not getting along anymore, countries remain at odds, children refuse to listen to their parents, parents don't know where to turn for help? Even those available to help are overwhelmed? Do we need to get another awakening to know we don't need a lot of materialist things to be happy. How do we measure happiness? Is it based on our worldly possession?  One time I was in a hurry to drive to an appointment and my car stopped at a stop light. There on the corner was a homeless man with a sign that read
"I am saving to go find a job."
When I saw that sign I didn't know what to think. At least he had a plan. Do we have plans no matter our situation?  What worries you at night? What keeps you awake at night. Can you turn your worries into a profit center or a new business? Think about these questions. The absolutely has to be a reason for all this. Is their a master plan that we are being kept from knowing? A higher plan beyond our comprehension? These are some reasons we are so empty. An empty vessel can either be used for a highly calling or can be filled with worldly desires, worldly lavishness and worldly ways. Could that be the reason we are so empty? Comment below. I'd like to hear you thoughts on this topic. Don't forget to like, share and comment.
