Be Safe This Weekend !
Thanks Jim for lookin out after me :))
FYI: My e-gold accounts are almost depleted. I have enough left to buy another position in one of my private programs, and that makes me happy. But I don't have enough for any more trades. Sorry folks.
Just read a note from Michael Badger. He didn't forget about us. Everything for the new product launch is just taking a little longer than expected. Fine by me :)
Special Announcements Section :)
#1 - Tuesday, June 3rd was Missi's Birthday!
So Happy Belated Birthday Missi,
and many many more!!!
Good Luck on your upcoming move also.
Sounds exciting and should be a lot of fun!
# 2 - My long time internet buddy, Randy in Arkansas (no pic available) has completed his last day of School.
No, he's not a student. He's a Teacher and was very excited about retiring after many many years of teaching High School Students 'History'. (is that right Randy?)
Now I know he's looking forward to a summer of Golfing ... but after that he'll be spending more time here on the net (hopefully with me) learning what I (we) do to make more money!
Nothing wrong with supplementing that retirement pay eh?
So Good Luck Randy and do enjoy your summer knowing that you're FREE !!!
You know the old saying, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen"?? I thought of that line just a few minutes ago based on a couple of things.
I just read some notes from folks who reminded me of my newbie days trying to make money from internet programs. Now, being a newbie and trusting everyone and everything ... I lost big time!
So feeling like a fool ... I've since learned to do more research, get-in-good with some knowledgeable people, try things out for myself, and learn who to trust.
One of the most important things I've learned is: Never spend more than you can afford to lose. And to this day ... I keep that promise.
Another very important thing I've learned is to Relax. Do Not let your blood pressure go sky-high because of something that is out of your control. Talk to someone. Take a deep breath. Look at the problem or incident logically.
Most times you will realize it's something that ...
- can be fixed
- wasn't as bad as you thought in the first place
- or good thing I didn't spend the rent money (in case of a loss)
We all take chances here on the net. And we should all accept responsibility for our own actions. If something goes wrong, ok it's a bummer. If something goes right, Whoo Hoooo! We did good !!!
So when I read a note from someone who appears to be confused, upset, freaking out, or just complaining about something that I'm knowledgeable of and/or personally involved in ... I try my best to do the research, help them out, and hopefully get it resolved (or explained) as fast as possible.
And I've learned to do that very calmly, and most times with a smile on my face.
Sometimes things are just not as bad as they appear on the outside. You need to look within yourself, take a deep breath, and find the answer. Am I right?
My Lesson for Today is: Don't Publish your blog until you're done with it. Else all the comments that come in will be about the STUPID BEER SIGN!!! hahaha
