Shipped In Time For Christmas Graphics

The season is fast approaching when black Friday and Cyber Monday deals will be upon us.

I'm working on an incredible deal for the massage music we have over at Music Of Massage, and created a few graphics to help me with that.

I thought I would share my "shipped in time for Christmas" graphics here. Feel free to download and use freely.

I've put them into .PSD, .jpg, and transparent .gif. The .psd graphics aren't layered into all layers as I built the original images in Power Point.

Anyway, hope these help you! If they do, please link back to this page using anchor text "shipped in time for Christmas graphics".

Work is Pretty Much Boring

Mark: "Do you like working where you're working or is it pretty much boring as hell?"

Jonathan: "I like working where I'm working, but yah, it's pretty much boring."

That was the conversation I had some time ago with my friend Mark.

Most people go into business thinking that they will avoid the "boring as hell" stuff that they have to do in their job.

But you know what I've discovered? In business, there's plenty of boring-as-hell stuff to do as well.

And if you don't do the boring stuff that your business requires (or at least hire someone to do the boring stuff that your business requires), then chances are good that your business won't succeed, and you'll be back to doing the boring stuff for someone else.

Business is more work than a job. Having and running business takes more initiative and drive than having a typical job.

But I'd much rather do boring things that I know are going to benefit me, as opposed to boring things that I know will benefit someone else in exchange for a paycheck.

That's not very optimistic, and... to be clear... not all business stuff is boring.

You should go into a business you are passionate about.

But know that there will be boring things that you just have to get done in order to get where you want to go with your business.

10 Reasons You Aren't Yet A Millionaire

A good article from Good reminders.

The reason why you aren't a millionaire (or on your way to becoming one) is really quite simple. You probably assume it's because you aren't earning enough money, but the truth is that for most people, whether or not you become a millionaire has very little to do with the amount of money you make. It's the way that you treat money in your daily life.

Here are 10 possible reasons you aren't a millionaire:

10. You Care What Your Neighbors Think
If you're competing against them and their material possessions, you're wasting your hard-earned money on toys to impress them instead of building your wealth.

9. You Aren't Patient
Until the era of credit cards, it was difficult to spend more than you had. That is not the case today. If you have credit card debt because you couldn't wait until you had enough money to purchase something in cash, you are making others wealthy while keeping yourself in debt.

8. You Have Bad Habits
Whether it's smoking, drinking, gambling or some other bad habit, the habit is using up a lot of money that could go toward building wealth. Most people don't realize that the cost of their bad habits extends far beyond the immediate cost. Take smoking, for example: It costs a lot more than the pack of cigarettes purchased. It also negatively affects your wealth in the form of higher insurance rates and decreased value of your home.

7. You Have No Goals
It's difficult to build wealth if you haven't taken the time to know what you want. If you haven't set wealth goals, you aren't likely to attain them. You need to do more than state, "I want to be a millionaire." You need to take the time to set saving and investing goals on a yearly basis and come up with a plan for how to achieve those goals.

The Hanoi Hilton: Brilliant Propaganda

When the United States was at war with Vietnam, it became official policy of the North Vietnamese government that if an American pilot was shot down but still alive, he was to be brought to a certain prison (actually built by the French in the 1800's) in the center of Hanoi.

Hoa Lo Prison.

These American pilots were to be treated with the utmost respect and dignity, and given the best treatment a POW could hope to receive.

That is how it is told in Vietnam today.

It is also told that the pilots were treated so well that they began to call the prison the Hanoi Hilton, because while still very uncomfortable and of course imprisoned, it felt like the hotel version of being a POW, hence the name, the Hanoi Hilton.

You Can Never Understand A System From the Inside

Perry Marshall sent out this email today.

So much of it rang true for me, and I wanted to share it with you here, as well as archive it for myself.

In 8th grade one of my teachers assigned me to write a report about the United States and one other country. I chose India.

I'd never left the US and I'd never gone to India. Yet somehow India wasn't all that hard to write about - I asked one of my other teachers a bunch of questions because she had been to India. I wrote about women's colorful dresses and Hindu temples and all that. All the stuff a foreigner notices.

How many order buttons do you have in the world?

How many order buttons do you have out there?

This was a question asked by Paul Myers in his newsletter today.

It made me think.

How many order buttons do I have in the world?

"Order buttons" defined: Places where people can pull out their credit card/debit card/bank details and (in exchange for the value I'm providing them) pay me something in return?

I promote lots of other people's order buttons and other people's businesses.

I do this through affiliate marketing.

Some of the companies I promote pay me commissions when one of their products is sold from my referral.

However, for products and solutions I provide, I really only have two order buttons in the world right now.

Order buttons (for us) would be places where (when people buy) the money goes directly to our business account.

Those two places are Healing Scar Tissue and Music of Massage.
