Why I Prefer A Leica Camera

Why I Prefer A Leica Camera
Photo credit: Thorsten Overgaard Someone asked me recently what I like most about the Leica M compared to “normal” DSLR cameras. 1. It’s lighter. The Leica M is 680 grams. Compared to, say, the Canon 5D which is 860g. Strangely, if you don’t hold each of them separately, it’s easy to imagine the Leica is ...

The Bobobo Fruit, “Or, how to get rich in nutritional MLM with a nonsense product”

The Bobobo Fruit,
After over 20 years in the home-business industry, I’m convinced that the only thing it takes to create a profitable MLM company in the health/nutrition niche is: 1. An obscure fruit/vegetable that no one in America has heard of 2. A collection of fast-and-loose health claims that are statistically relevant for a majority of the ...

How To Ask A Question

I recently had the opportunity to participate in a panel discussion where members of the audience were invited to come to a microphone and ask questions of the panelists, all of whom were million-dollar earners in the Internet marketing industry. After the invitation was made and people began lining up to ask questions, the usual ...

How To Make More Money In Any Profession

It’s interesting to me that so many people seem to behave as though there’s something wrong with the owner/manager of a company earning many times what the employees earn. They seem to think that something is wrong when a CEO makes $4 million per year (or $400 million)……while an employee working for the same company ...

A Thought Before Heading To Bed…

I think it’s unfortunate that people attach so much shame and embarrassment to screwing up. Screwing up is part of life. And we all do it. The older I get, the more I’m convinced that the best way to deal with screw-ups is to just own them. “I did that. That’s my screw-up. Sorry. I’ll ...

How Do You Know What’s True And What’s Not?

How do you know what’s true and what’s not? What’s real and what’s fiction? What’s myth and what’s reality? There’s a trend of anti-intellectualism in this country that seems to pretend that “my opinion is just as good as your evidence”. Which, of course, is not true. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. That’s not ...

Disturbing news
I’m not an alarmist. Or a conspiracy theorist. I’m not interested in sensationalism and drama. I like reason, logic and facts. But, I recently read an article from Mike Dillard at The Elevation Group that may be the most disturbing piece of news I’ve heard lately. Here it is: “Ammunition maker ATK receives a 450-million ...

How Do You Know What You Believe Is True?

One of the challenges of life is dealing with beliefs. There are so many to choose from, aren’t there? Beliefs about the economy. Beliefs about God. Beliefs about how to become more prosperous. Beliefs about how to solve illness and disease. It can be pretty complicated to sort through them all. Because, not only are ...

Lies We Tell Ourselves, (or, “The Guy Who Knocks You Down Without Touching You”) 1

Have you ever known someone who was just a constant liar?  I mean, someone who lies so regularly and so convincingly that you just can’t tell they’re lying at all? For those of us who value honesty and integrity, it makes us wonder:  “How can someone lie like that all the time?” And, if you’re ...
