Seriously people there are 363 days until Christmas,
it's a little early to have the decorations up, isn't it ?

I have to say I like the pop up as well.

But clicking on "Click here" link on your pop-up results in the following

Sorry, Page Not Found
The Page You've Requested Can Not Be Found.

You are viewing this page via The Real Tracker, a free link tracking service that helps webmasters to track the surfing duration, uniqueness and source of its visitors. You are seeing this error message because this link doesn't exist or has been deleted by the webmaster.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but IMO it is better you know than not...


Thanks,  Jerome

this company is well over 140 yrs old... so has an extreme amount of credibility and nostalgia. In fact,  it was one of the first companies I represented, just because I had grown up with their products around all my life.

and starting in 2017 EVERY single team member will be getting a complete free e-com transactional website that they can personalize (currently that same site costs $65 to set up and $19.95/month) to go along with the free recruiting and training websites our team provides

So this November Special is a really good deal for...
 - ANYONE LOOKING to add (another) profit streams
 - WILL BEAT the $10 membership price increase ($29.95/yr after Jan 01, 2017)
 - YOU RECEIVE a $20 gift certificate
 - AND SAVE over $300 in expenses

This credibility/nostalgia is a real plus... personally I already have product placements lined up as 'preferred sponsors' with several clients and friends on their sites in a range of niches; sports, food, parenting, etc. And the new products being discussed for the coming year will certainly expand that potential.

If you aren't interested yourself, Jerome, would you please consider passing my link on to at least one or two that might be.

Thanks in advance

seems like I made the cut... lol


Because of the complete loss of our family home in a housefire* last year...
AND a unilateral determination by insurance company to not cover any of the loss...
after a brief hiatus, I am getting back to my income-generating roots... (at least partially)

So to kick things off...
I have a SPECIAL OFFER... for any and all of my US & Canadian-based friends here.
An offer that allows you to get a FREE $20 Gift Certificate for your choice of
ANY of the fine products... as well as an entire year of discounts AND potential income

YES, ALL YOUR other FRIENDS (US/CAN only) can get in on it, too...
but ONLY if you act BEFORE midnight on November 30th, 2016, so...

CLICK HERE and please consider joining me,
so TOGETHER we can begin to (re)BUILD a home-based income...

Thanks in advance for just checking it out. I really hope that some of you will join me on the journey...

Here's hoping that you have a GREAT rest of today, and even better tomorrow...
just because YOU CAN!


PS: I will have an equally beneficial Special Offer for all of those outside the US and Canada shortly

One thing to be aware of and maybe to make visitors  like me aware of is that this is for US residents ONLY...  :''(

I'll take a closer look at it after the election hoopla is over... (such a political junkie, even your country's election has me

hmmm... Jim, MM, et al;

my earlier comments re agenda still stand

for example this latest recommended watchdog... judgebinaryoptions, which on one-hand encourages you to "avoid binary option trading scams that follow the too-good-to-be-true mentality" and if you’re actually looking for a profitable way to supplement your income online through binary options "look towards more reliable services such as the 'proven' Copybuffett binary option trading systems!" 

and yet on the other...  this very same ultimate "judge, the jury and the executioner regarding all things related to binary options" states that the CopyBuffet system "doesn’t make any money" and warning investors to "stay away from this ridiculous scam" with the suggestion to either use Buffet’s "REAL" investment techniques, or just choose a "binary options system which is honest and could produce profits", such as E***** T** R***"

just tiny bit of research will usually provide at least some semblance of enlightenment as to their bias...

"Michael Dlouhy, the original creator of Success in 10 steps, did post it on that site."

How do you know?

Are you maybe basing that position on the 'fact' that there is an author 'profile' page?  or that the author's "name" is listed?

there is no form of personal information of any kind on the author's profile page  ( other than the link to the book... hardly what one would expect from someone as savy as Mr. Dlouhy.

Nor, as you say, is there any indication that he relinguished any rights to the work... which is clearly indicative, or should be at least, that it is not acceptable to assume one has liberty to do anything at all in the way of  'rebranding', 'repurposing', 'resale' or even (re)distribution


Thank you and glad that you "sent a message to asking for clarification since it is a repurposed version of a work already on their site."

hmmm... should not any 'checking' be done with the actual author??? 

if for no other reason that to determine if ANY 'repurpose' rights have been ever granted to ANYONE; the original poster here, or anywhere else?  And also to verify if anyone that may have been granted some permission to use, were in fact also given the right to remove copyright and other legal notifications, identification of the original author, and other liberties... as evidenced in the ebook that was made available here.

again, respectfully

Sorry Jerome, but while I appreciate your checking into this I have to disagree with your finding/opinion for the following reasons:

just because something is "given away" DOES NOT mean that they are granting any sort of rights  nor relinquishing any degree of control or permission to change the content or remove the author contact information or copyright.

"My purpose is to share what I’ve learned in nearly 30 years in network marketing, and present a 10-step success plan you can use with ANY network marketing opportunity." DOES NOT give permission to plagarize

your observation that...

Other things done right from a repurposing content standard point:
*created a new ebook cover (the original shows Michael and his wife).
*The author removed all the parts that have Michael's name in it. (which is what you are supposed to do when your properly repurpose content especially if you arent a part of the mentoring for free program)
*Link to Color of Success has been personalized (some people forget to change links that sometimes)

highlight changes that are legitimate if, and ONLY IF, those specific rights were granted by the actual author and specifically to the person making said changes

otherwise any original content created by anyone, whether to be sold, or 'given away' (or even simply created for sake of creation)... as an opt-in reward, loss leader, bonus etc,... would be 'fair game' for 'rebranding', 'repurposin'g, or 'resale" by any, and every, person that simply makes minor changes, like  creating a new cover image, personalizing a link, or removing small segments that identify the actual author.




Someone might want to check with the actual author (Michael Dlouhy) about exactly what rights area legally available with this book before ever promoting it

Simply putting a new cover or removing the author's contact and legal disclaimers hardly qualifies as the granting of resale rights of any sort or "repurposing" IMO, but what do I know.

Hey MM

Just went to check out your landing page at

and the only thing found is "404 Error - Page Not Found

Please check the URL.

Otherwise, click here to be redirected to the homepage."

you might want to look into this if you are still actively promoting that link
