Wednesday 9th June 2010


Hope this finds you fit and well and that your like this new format of the newsletter.

I have been receiving positive feedback on the value of my TLAT (Tips, Links and Tidbits) newsletter so have prettied up the presentation of it and am opening it up to the general public for a free subscription.

If you know someone who would appreciate this weekly dose of enlightenment and entertainment, feel free to point them to this page where they can sign up. http://www.tlat.net I have updated the archive of all past copies at this site so you can browse back issues too.

An update on our new Schnauzer, Darcy. He is a hoot. If Julie or are away for longer than an hour he treats us like a long lost friend and is all over us like a rash with puppy yelps of excitement. In typical Schnauzer style he is a great doorbell, open the front gate and he is already announcing, I mean barking your arrival before you hit the front door!

Enjoy this week’s selection of information morsels and have a great week!

General Interest

A Great Philosophy

Never, ever worry about something for longer than it actually takes to do it.

A Wise Quote

“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why we call it the ’present’.” Kung Fu Panda

A Quote From Dr. Rashid Buttar

The last unknown is not outer space. It’s within the body. We are incredible beings capable of incredible things. The perfect piece of machinery is the human body. If we were a car and we put the kind of crap we put into our system and we were a car, we’d only run for 2 weeks. Remember that. Take care of your body, do the right thing, and everything else will fall into place.

You Won’t Make Sales To Those Who Most Need Your Product\Service

I recently listened to over 20 hours of audio from one of the top 20 copywriters in America, Dan Kennedy. One of the points he made was that you will not make sales to those who most need your product. The person who most needs it will not purchase it. For instance the chiropractor earning $50,000 a year who needs every practice management tip you can give him won’t buy a $5,000 consulting program but the chiropractor doing $500,000 a year will purchase it.

Firstly, the guy doing more turnover can more easily afford it. Secondly, even though the $500,000 a year chiropractor needs the data far less, he operates on the principle of the slight edge. He only needes to get a 1 percent improvement out of everything in the coaching program to cover the cost of it.

The $50,000 a year chiropractor who needs to get a 10 percent improvement to cover the cost of the coaching program is orders of magnitude less likely to sign up.

This principle of the slight edge was used to sell me a sales course over 30 years ago. The presenter said the number one golfer last year made $500,000 and the number 50 golfer made $50,000. Over the year, on average how many strokes difference per game was there between number 1 and number 50, for ten times the earnings?

The answer? An incredibly small 1 stroke per game. That one stroke per game was worth $450,000 in extra income. 10x. So the question I put to you this week is, What are you doing that is shaving strokes off your business and personal game?

Here is a link to a tool with great potential

It will be nice when it is more advanced. I typed 6 queries and did not get a single useful answer. I would still like to know the nutritional analysis for freeze dried Acai berry powder, nopal powder, mesquite, maca powder and a few other ingredients I put in my food bars. Oh well. Even nutrition data specific sites don’t know so I can’t expect Wolfram Alpha to return results if they are not available on the internet. http://www.wolframalpha.com/screencast/introducingwolframalpha.html

If you still watch the news you might read this:

I received this rant from an on-line marketer. It so closely matches my philosophy I wanted to share it with you.


One conspiracy I definitely believe in is the conspiracy to suffocate you in paralyzing mental garbage and global negativity.

I don’t generally buy into conspiracy theories. But I do believe in cosmic episodes of stupidity and planned mass mediocrity.

And the #1 conspiracy of the modern world is to choke your brain with sewage and kill your spirit with overwhelming feeling that you are small and insignificant and helpless.

I almost *never* watch the news. I figure if there’s something I absolutely have to know about, somebody will call me and tell me about it. That habit has worked pretty well so far.

But on Monday I was in a restaurant and CNN was on. Couldn’t help but watch the endless parade of catastrophes.

I know that CNN is “normal” to “normal” people. But I also realize, most normal people accomplish fairly little in their 70 trips around the sun. Those of us who are going somewhere in life have better things to do than listen to relentless droning about 147 tragedies that we have no ability to solve.

Right now, especially with the Gulf oil spill, the world is AWASH in negativity.

You as an entrepreneur MUST fight this. Proactively. Because if you don’t it’ll kill your business, kill your sales, kill your dreams and everything you really care about.

Watching CNN while you eat breakfast is like visiting a cholera epidemic at a refugee camp and letting sick people drool on you. Then changing their bedpans and rubbing your eyes and licking your hands.

Listen up: The mass news media is NOT your friend.

They exist for the purpose of selling you fear, paranoia, and prescription drugs.

Not only must you protect yourself from the constant, incessant paralysis of depression, you need to combat it with your customers.

You need to tell them what’s GOOD. You need to greet them with a smile and with encouragement.

You need to talk about what’s HAPPENING.

You need to celebrate little tiny victories EVERY SINGLE DAY. (More on that at www.perrymarshall.com/positivefocus).

And... when you have a major victory in your life, you need to telegraph it to encouraging people who will celebrate it with you. Because GOOD NEWS is NEWS INDEED.
