A Kick In The Wallet and a Thornhill rant!


ship discount prom dresses 2016 at groupdress.comThe following is the guest blog post which I submitted to be published on John Thornhill`s blog. I talked about this in my previous post called “Overcoming Procrastination”


I have been meaning to write this blog post on procrastination to submit To John Thornhill`s blog ever since the end of March when I bought a product through his affiliate link and was given this opportunity as one of his bonuses. But guess what?…I`ve been putting it off all these months!

I regret to admit that I am one of those people that need a kick up the backside to get moving and will always find a thousand excuses to do something tomorrow (or never!) rather than today. In this particular case, the combination of a realization that my bonuses would soon expire and re-visting a video of one of John Thornhill`s epic rants were the spurs to jump start me into action!

I am actually improving… things were worse before because as I realise now, I was wallowing in complacency. You see, I had my own small business (a driving school) and also work in a hotel, here on the beautiful mediterranean island of Cyprus. Although not exactly rich, my combined incomes were enough for me and my wife to live on.

I had been dabbling in internet marketing for a few years but not really taking it very seriously. Like most newbies, I have purchased a lot of products, filling up several hard drives in the process, but have rarely completed or mastered any of the courses that seemed so promising at the time I was clicking the buy button!

In 2013, the bottom fell out of our world! Suddenly, to our horror, we discovered that the Cypriot economy was collapsing. My bank, after years of throwing credit at me, suddenly froze my credit card and told me I had to pay them back what I owed them! Yikes! Worse was to come. After 15 years of having two jobs, I was told by the authorities that I could not renew my driving instructors licence because I earned more from my hotel job than my driving school. They were suddenly implementing a law dating from 1968, which had previously been ignored!

To cut a long story short, I have now had to close my driving school and that was the kick in the wallet that has motivated me to take the internet stuff more seriously. I have started a blog, after buying the domain name 5 or 6 years ago but never using it (no surprises there!) and have decided to partner with a marketer whose progress I have been following for a number of years. Dean Holland is one of the most well respected internet marketers around and I am very pleased to now be involved in his iPro membership program. Dean has an excellent team around him and the support & encouragement provided by them and the other partners through weekly webinars and a lively Facebook group is outstanding. It`s early days yet, but I have already made some sales and there are many success stories amongst the more established partners.

If you are interested in learning more about Dean Holland & how you might benefit from his vast online experience, I suggest you watch this free video where he explains his flagship product, The Big Commission Blueprint. Hopefully, watching that video will be able to motivate you, even if you too are a chronic procrastinator!


Unfortunately, John Thornhill felt unable to publish my above post with the promotion of BCB, as he is promoting Dean`s product in other ways and felt it would be in conflict. So what I did is edit it slightly, removing all mention of BCB & Dean Holland and just leaving a link to this blog. I am happy with that, as any extra traffic to my blog is welcome and there are plenty of opportunities once here, for a reader to click through to BCB 🙂

John has just informed me that the post is live and can be found here.

Attack Of The Vinda Losers!

buy discount bridesmaid dresses at theluckybridal new collectionSo yesterday I had a phone call out of the blue from a lady with a strong Indian accent claiming to be from Microsoft Tech Support. She said that my computer had been infected and that she was going to talk me through the procedure of correcting it.

I was immediately suspicious and asked her where she was calling from. She said she was in London. There was a lot of background noise and chatter, and it sounded like she was at Victoria railway station or more likely Mumbai railway station. Anyway, I played along with her game. At one point the line went dead but she immediately called me back.
I asked her to verify that she was from Microsoft. She instructed me to open a cmd command on my computer and type “assoc” and enter. That brought up a string of characters including a CLSID. She correctly quoted the CLSID  number I had on my screen and said she wouldn`t know that number if she wasn`t from Microsoft. Apparently, that CLSID is the same on all Windows computers but I can see how that would convince some people.
Next she instructed me to open another cmd command box, type “eventvwr.exe” and press enter. At this point I informed her that I don`t like being scammed and hung up! Needless to say, she did not ring back.
This is a lesson to us all about how many scam artists there are out there on and off the internet trying to steal our hard earned cash.
Every day you will come across websites that make wild promises of incredible mountains of cash that will come your way if only you buy their one click software or join their membership site. Whilst some of these shiny objects may not be out and out scams like the one being run by the Vinda Losers, most of them just do not work. They will happily take your money and leave you high and dry.
That is why you should go with something & somebody that is well established, has an excellent record of honest, ethical marketing and who really has your best interests at heart.
Introducing Dean Holland, the founder & CEO of iPro.Dean has been helping complete newbies to start making money online for years now.His reputation for producing products that deliver on their promises is second to none.
iPro`s flagship program is called The Big Commission Blueprint and it is literally transforming lives.
I urge you to watch a free video where Dean will walk you through BCB and show you real examples of ordinary people, with no previous marketing experience who are now earning big commissions on the internet. This is no scam. It is a real business that will require some honest hard work and commitment from you, which will reward you big time.
That is something the Vinda Losers of this world will never understand.

Dust In Time To Make Paydirt!

lichtreflektor//faltreflektoren fotografie//faltreflektor 60cm//faltreflektor 5 in 1Woke up the other day to a peculiar hazy yellow sky which got steadily worse throughout the day! The normal strong sunshine and bright blue mediterranean sky were completely obscured by this fog of dust.

It was difficult to see where you were and where you were headed!

If you dared to venture out in it you would soon be coughing and spluttering and stumbling aimlessly.

Got me thinking about running an online business.
For most people starting out it`s similar to being in a sand storm.
Not knowing which direction to head in.
Not seeing the bigger picture.
Choking in the IM desert
Being constantly attacked and robbed by bands of guru bandits!
But wait!…… There is an oasis close at hand.
A place where you can see a clear path to success ahead.
Where your efforts will soon start to earn you big commission coconuts!
Even if you decide this particular watering hole is not for you, you are sure to dig up some hidden treasure in the words spoken by Dean Holland in this FREE video!

Why Do We Go To Restaurants?

I have recently been doing some pruning of my aweber lists. By that I mean that every so often I go through each list and unsubscribe anyone who has not opened one of my emails in the last 6 months. It is fairly frustrating to see how many people only open the first message which has a link to the freebie that they subscribed for. Suprisingly, some people don`t even open that first message!
I have started to tweak my messages, changing headlines and wording, trying to make them more eye-catching, in an attempt to improve the open rate. After all, there`s no point in crafting & sending messages if nobody even opens them.
Here is an example of a recent message I added to my follow up sequence. Any comments welcomed 🙂
Why do we go to restaurants?
Have you ever asked yourself that question?sexy evening gown
So why do we go to restaurants? I mean,  it`s cheaper to cook at home and eat in the privacy & comfort of home, right?And yet we like to get in the car, drive around looking for a restaurant and a parking space. Sometimes we even have to stand around waiting  for a table to be free!
The reason for this odd behavior?
It`s because of the appeal of the  “done for you option”!
You get to feel special, waited on by experts, served up food prepared by professionals.
And all you have to do is sit back and enjoy your meal!
It`s the same with an internet business.
You can slave away at home in front of your computer, learning about HTML, CSS, FTP,SEO, copy writing, squeeze page design, product creation, email follow ups, etc, etc  and even after years of trying to master all this techy stuff – there`s  still no guarantee that you will make any money!
You can take the sensible option…Shortcut your success by teaming up with a well respected internet millionaire who`s been there, done that and got the t-shirt!
Just plug in to his tried & tested systems and let the experts do their thing!
It`s not quite as hands off as eating in a restaurant – you will have to do some work to promote your links and send traffic to them, but you will have expert training & guidance to help you – and you can be up and running in minutes, not years!
Imagine using an established private business system for yourself and being involved in an opportunity that’s already banking up to$12,296 per DAY!
