Which niches are the most expensive to advertise in the UK?

Obviously, if you want to make money on the Internet, you need to pick a niche that has value. You don’t want to pick a niche where the unit value of items are only pennies because that would mean you’d have to shift units in their squillions to make decent profit. That would make you a very busy fool indeed. Do not choose too broad a niche This kind of speaks for itself, doesn’t it? If your chosen niche is too broad then the traffic within it will be enormous, but you’ll never be able to rank in it because …

The Life Long Habit Rule : Turns Out Einstein was Right (again)

I recently came across this crazy article called ‘People who talk to themselves aren’t crazy. They’re actually geniuses. In the article, they pointed towards a couple of shocking studies by Swingley and Lupyan in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology. They had two groups of people.  The first group they told without any instruction, look at this image and try and find the banana and they timed how long it took on average for that group to find the banana. Then they got the second group of people and told that group to talk to themselves by consistently repeating ‘banana, …

The Property Training Industry 12 Months On – Still Swimming In Snake Oil

Financial Freedom Anyone? In February 2018 we decided that we’d go to see a property trainer who was offering a free ‘crash course’ as an introduction to property investment. We’d read Samuel Leeds’ book and it invited us to check him out so he could show us how easy if was to become ‘Financially Free’. 😉 By that point we’d already bought a couple of houses ourselves and had gone through the process. We knew it wasn’t simple, but we knew what it was about. We’d bought those houses by conventional Buy To Let (BTL) means and I had also …

Wisdom on a Wednesday – Presentation and Pitching

Guest Post by Daniel Laing Today’s Wisdom on a Wednesday’s post is on the topic of presentations/pitching. The reason I have chosen this topic is to help people improve on their pitching. Additionally, it has also been chosen to help people become aware of what some of the dubious trainers do, so they don’t fall victim to them. Presentations are one of the few things where the audience focuses on how someone delivers it, as much as the content. Some dubious trainers take advantage of this and use it as a way to emotionally manipulate people and mislead them. Today …

Why Most People Won’t Make The £5K A Month They Dream Of

OK, in this business of affiliate marketing and online adventures, I see hundreds of people from all over the World trying to get a business going online and the large majority of those people have a goal of around £5k per month for their online business. Some are even more ambitious than that, aiming for £10k+ a month. Whilst this sounds great,  it’s great to have goals and I actively encourage them, but many of those people lack the skills needed or the consistency of effort required to achieve this amount of money online regularly. There’s a very valid reason …

Charlie Chaplin : As I began to love myself

This is Charlie Chaplin at age 26, photographed 100 years ago. It’s believed he wrote the poem below at age 70. I feel he pretty much said it all with this one… As I began to love myself, I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is Authenticity. As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though …

How to Stick to Your Goals When the Obstacles Seem Impossible

Getting over the wall. Almost everyone knows the value of setting goals. Setting them, writing them down, and then marching toward their completion is the best and surest way to make progress, right? It doesn’t matter what your goals are, as long as they’re important to you, and let’s face it, if they weren’t important to you, you wouldn’t have made them goals in the first place, right? Problems arise, however, when you feel as though you’re not making any progress. Sometimes it feels as though every force in the universe is acting against you, trying to keep you from …

Are you a busy fool? Now, I don’t mean a fool in a derogatory way. You might not have heard the phrase before. A ‘busy fool’ is a person who always has no time to spare, does loads of work, but never seems to make any headway. He’s running to stand still essentially. This is because his time is chaotic, with no structure. We all lead busy lives these days and despite the fact that you might want to start a home based business, you think that you’ve no time to commit to it. Your available time is limited. But, …

Cannubu CBD Oil Review

Can CBD Oil help my back pain? I’ve not really considered CBD Oil as a way of treating my dodgy back before (and knees), but I came across this rather funkily packaged product under the monicker of Cannubu so thought i’d give it a go and review what I found. In the UK, we seem to be the last to adopt new ideas. Certainly any mention of Cannabis over here and eyebrows are raised and curtains start to twitch. This CBD Oil is made in the UK. What is this CBD Oil? Isn’t it just a secret way of getting out …
