Is It Cold in Canada?

So I’m getting ready to head out the door on my way to Toronto.  My flight leaves in a couple hours and I figured I’d check the weather on my iPhone before heading out.

And I always forget when I travel this time of year that some places actually have 4 seasons.  And one of them is cold.

Did you know it’s cold in Canada?  I did too.  But there’s something about seeing that it’s 23 degrees right now in the place I’ll be in a few hours.

To put it in perspective, it’s 64 right now at 3:19am in Phoenix.  Today’s high will be in the mid-80’s.  Every day this week my wife lays out by the pool to get her tan back and I ride my bike just about everywhere I go.  The weather’s great.

I know I’ll pay for it in July when I have to pack my family up and head out for an extended vacation.  But it’s sure hard to leave right now.

I really should be asleep right now resting up for golf, or a climb, or a dive.

Instead I’m up at 3am and heading to Toronto.  In March.  It’s cold.

Why?

I’m off to Gauher Chaudry’s Pay Per Click Formula 2.0 seminar.

Gotta’ keep learning.  You never know where that next golden nugget might come from.

I “invest” probably $30,000+ a year on marketing products and seminars.  Most are garbage.  Some are not.  Learning just 1 or 2 legitimately new things each year can make a *huge* difference, though.

The last time I hit one of Gauher’s events (12/07) I came home and added over $24,000 per month to my income using a variation on 1 the things he taught me.  Worth it.

It doesn’t always work out that way, though.  Most “new” secrets aren’t new.  And they’re not secret either.  It would be disappointing if the same fundamentals applied over and over again didn’t work so well.

But they do and I’m happy.  And the game isn’t usually revolutionary as much as evolutionary.  Tweaking this.  Tinkering on that.  And if I can gain just a sliver of an advantage I’m gold.

So I buy a *lot*.  And I try a *lot*.  And I fail a *lot*.

The most I ever paid for an info-product?  $27,500 in 2005 or 2006.  Pricey?  Yes.  And I promptly made $87,500 3 months later.  Worth it.

What isn’t worth it?  Oddly, it’s usually the $47 – $97 – $197 stuff.  Tends to be stale.  Regurgitated.  Difficult.  More about timing than actual systems.

Want to know one of my greatest secrets?  It’s simple really.  Be willing to pay a steep price for massive success.  It takes more than $47.  And you’re probably gonna’ have to learn some stuff.  And sell some stuff (even you don’t sell stuff).  And do some stuff.  And buy some stuff.

That’s okay.  It’s certainly worked for me.

So I keep looking.  And I keep learning.  It’s important.  And worth it.

Site Sniper Pro for Free?!?

In case you’re interested, my friend Chris (AdGrenade creator) has a pretty killer offer going on right now.  In case you don’t know him, he partnered with Steve Clayton and Tim Godfrey (Commission Blueprint & Niche Blueprint fame) to create AdGrenade several months back.  In fact, my post kind of kicked everything off for him 🙂

Anyway, he’s got a good bonus for Niche Blueprint right now.  Get it through his link and he’ll give you AdGrenade for free *and* Site Sniper Pro for free!

He promised me a scuba trip in Cozumel in exchange for the free licenses of SSP.  Not a bad exchange, huh?

I’m not totally sure (since I got Niche Blueprint during the first launch), but I think Steve and Tim are only making it available again for a few days.  I could be wrong on that.  But if you want SSP (and AdGrenade) for free and you’re thinking of getting Niche Blueprint anyway then head over NicheBlueprint.net and check out Chris’s offer.

The Reign of the Slacker King…

After waaaay too many promises to update the licensing server code in my free software I’ve finally given up.  At some point point I just have to embrace my inner procrastinator and admit I have a problem.  Isn’t that the first step?

Hello, My Name is Matt… And I’m a Slacker…

But don’t worry.  I didn’t give up on the software… just the new licensing server.  Once I started playing with it I couldn’t stop.  I began all the new slick features I’ve wanted for so long.  And… like many  (too many) of my projects… it now sits in a mangled state of quasi-usability on my hard drive.

But you don’t have to suffer for my laziness anymore!  Woohoo!

I’ve republished all of my free software and completely removed any licensing code for now.  If I ever get around to finishing my killer new license server I may come back and re-integrate it.  But, for now, enjoy the free stuff.
