I just want to take this opportunity to tell all my readers a very Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope with all my heart that all of you enjoy a good dinner with people you care about in a warm and comfortable home. After dinner do yourself a favor and reflect on all the blessings we have in our world. I have done this for a number of years. It adds to my day, makes me more aware of something besides myself, and gives me a chance to be thankful for others too.

May God's blessings be with you today and throughout the coming year.

Working Round 'The Big Dogs'!

I visited a website yesterday before it's launch. Everything talked about there appeared to be terrifically encouraging, direct and real as far as being a method to succeed online. Just a few hours ago I visited it after it's launch. I went to look what the price tag would be on it, all along hoping it would be permissive. But at $997 it might as well have been one of those Super Guru's products priced way over $3000. It was way out of my league. Am I disappointed? Yes. Am I surprised? Not at all. I knew the way he talked on his video it would be out of my range. It seemed as though he was ready to be a 'Big Dog'. This is not to say he is a bad person or that the testimonials on his site cannot be believed. I am merely saying he is moving on up in the industry and loosing site of those behind him.

There are people like myself; who are still struggling to make a living. Sure I want to be able to save time; but that is not as important as keeping the lights, water, and heat on. I am working hard to get "there". As always it infuriates me to see brash people on their sales pages say things like 'only this or that price'. These people are not catering to the little guy or gal but the gurus that want to make money with the next workable system or the poor fool that just got a large settlement or inheritance of some kind, or has a credit card that isn't maxed out yet.

I do have quite a few people in this business that I look up to today. But a lot of the other people I perceive them saying; 'I want to help people'; then they turn around and charge unattainable prices for their products. As I have said before; I am not a tire kicker, nor am I addle brained. I am an intelligent determined and articulate lady entrepreneur with little or no capitol; which makes it hard to get from point A to point C. But I will struggle on because I am convinced that I will succeed.

So though I am annoyed at a lot of the people that are selling systems, software, and other products for excessive prices I am here to tell you this. I believe that I shall soon have that experience of going to paypal or my bank account and see the money I have made with my labor. And I won't have to charge high prices, make people feel bad because they can't buy this or that, and I shall end up touching people's lives in a positive manner.

Cat With a Hat Just like Jason's

I just saw a video that Jason Moffatt made at some seminar in California I think. This young man is irreverent, swears worse than any sailor I have never known, and his appearance is to say the least very 'casual'. Having said that I think he is a truly caring, empathetic, and sincere individual.

I understand a great deal more about marketing and videos than I did before. I have learned that some marketers are very flamboyant and that Jason doesn't mind having a lot of fun.

I went to his blog, and learned a lot about him and what he really cares about. I also learned a lot about marketing from the blog. I got a great deal from his other site here
and the accompanying blog as well. He isn't a polished young man but he is definitely on his way to making a great mark in this industry!

Oh by the way Jason, congratulations on the new house!

Ranting about Products Offered on the Net

I was looking at some new courses and products on the web. I was suddenly stricken with a thought. No wonder these people are millionaires! They not only charge exorbitant fees for all their marvelous 'Can't miss', 'Will make you thousands', and my favorite, 'So easy my 10 year old can do it' products they are trying to sell you. They razzle dazzle you with pictures of all the tangible things they have acquired because of their product. Generally speaking, they didn't get rich using their product but selling it at humongous prices.

There are those that have courses that will probably do what they say and really want to help others; as well as make money; but they are few and far between. The one course I am particularly thinking of has his client/student pay almost $500 and that is only 10% of what the person will end up paying. However the one good thing about his pay system is that the customer is on the honor system and doesn't have to pay the balance until he feels he has earned enough from the fruits of the labor that is associated with the course.

My problem with this whole high priced thing is that I don't consistently make enough yet to be able to afford even one of the few excellent courses or products that are online. I am having fun just trying to keep a roof over my head and food in my stomach.

Of course I suffer from information overload just like everyone else. This month I am trying to weed what I want from what I don't in my email accounts. This is a huge task as I usually get 800 or more each account. Most of the business contacts on my accounts are sending me multiple offers a week, but its spamming if I try to show them something of mine which I believe really unfair! Its not that I don't understand why they technically call it spamming but why shouldn't you take a gander at mine if I have opened and read yours?

Well so much for today's rant. We'll see you in the next post and please feel free to comment if you wish.
