Thanks Mark

Have a great rest of Christmas and New Year holiday.

Hi Folks
I'm looking for a well supported (up to date) and customisable front end job price estimator plug in for Wordpress.
This would preferably be configured for lawn maintenance already, but not essential.
I need something that site visitors can use to get an estimate of lawncare costs from the front end of the site.
Thanks
John

Mastering PLR & MRR Products / Personal Use Rights
« on: September 03, 2015, 12:02:04 PM »
Hi Folks

Here's a (probably dumb) question for you:

What does Personal Use Rights allow me to do?

For example the Muscle Building Whiteboard Videos in this month's Gold area are Personal Use Rights.

With a body like mine, these videos have nothing to teach me :laugh:, but can I use them on a site to promote another product or as list building bait (free access on a membership site) as long as I don't sell the videos?

Cheers

John

Compfight.com and the Compfight plugin for Wordpress are good for Creative Commons pics.

Yes John

Good points and good to see that the worm hole is open and active between our parallel universes!

Your point about discipline (in respect of using your time effectively and in diversification) is very valid; don't go fishing if your tax return is due Dom! at least until you've completed it.

Seriously though, this can be a major issue when you suddenly find the cage door open for the first time. I found it helpful to retain the services of my previous book-keeper. She is freelance and very efficient and having her around twice a month makes sure that I can't get too far behind with anything legal and that I am forced (i need to be) to keep good records without too much tedium setting in.

Regarding tedium though, its much easier in this lifestyle to move onto something that you are feeling optimal on and come back to the tedium when you are in the right frame of mind, by which time it might not seem like tedium anymore!

Cheers

John
PS. Just noticed your location John, the temptation to go fishing must be very strong there!

Hi Dom

A good move, well done.

After 20 years of employment (job) I started two companies back in the early 2000's, serving clients in the industry I had always been in. Freedom was mine!

erm!...After 8 years I realised that I had bought myself 2 full-time jobs working for the craziest, hardest taskmaster of a boss I ever met (me) and was hating it.

I jumped ship in October 2010 to experience true freedom, just like you're doing now.

I am a member here of course, but I don't consider myself to be in "IM" for two reasons:

1. Although I have had a fair amount of success selling information products by using the web to do business; these products are invariably about subjects I have already done my 10,000 hours on. I view the web as a tool for marketing and communicating not a business in its own right.
2. IM has come to mean selling stuff to people to help them make money on the internet, even though the sellers in many many cases have never made a cent by doing so themselves

Three tips from my experience:

1. Dig a Tunnel (oops too late!) get something solid or a series of solid somethings going while still collecting wages from your job
2. Make your business around something you truly enjoy or there is a danger that you will make yourself a very poorly paid job.
3. You don't have to do just one thing; a patchwork income model can be very rewarding and great fun
4. This is my IM guru style bonus, as you were only expecting 3 tips here! You are no longer constrained by 9-5 or Monday to Friday; some of my best work gets thrashed out through the night, early in the morning or at odd times when I feel like getting into it. You can go fishing when you used to be at work!

All the best with this, its bound to succeed if you feel good about it.

John

PS. I recommend Chris Guillebeau's new book "the $100 dollar startup" which is inspirational and also full of good practical advice.

I think you showed some very professional restraint in your reply.

I would have struggled to keep it together in your position.

You are in better company here.

Very impressive, well done!

Love the video too.

I'm sure the Almighty Cod would love to be on page 1.

Technical Assistance / Video Problems in Google Chrome
« on: August 26, 2012, 08:03:58 PM »
Hi Folks

I've reluctantly gone back to Firefox after enduring apparently un-fixable problems showing video in Chrome. This manifests as a black or missing video box on web pages. Youtube usually still works ok...just embedded stuff that causes the problem.

I also get a lot of flickering graphics in Chrome.

Anybody had this problem and found a fix?

It appears to be a Shockwave plugin issue.

I'm feeling hungry already Brian,

Looks good.

I couldn't resist doing a search for take aways in Hartlepool and thought "the Almighty Cod" was a classic name!

I've often thought about having an Indian Take Away in Dublin called "Bombay Mick's"!

Cheers

Hi Dom

Have you tried webgains.com or webgains.co.uk, should be something in there.

Yes Brian

I totally agree. The Local Cash machines model is great, but every now and then I came across a gaping ravine!

If you bridge the gaps, you might just have a nice case study that you can make into a product for yourself!

When I researched a similar model I was surprised by how many great domains remain unclaimed!

Keep up the good work.

Cheers
