Driving time can sometimes be down time; you might be trapped in city traffic for long periods, or driving down the highway for long stretches. Why not put it to good use? Here’s a way to turn your vehicle into a university on wheels.

This APC post and the three previous ones were inspired by an experience I had earlier in June where I was amazed by the achievements of a particular group of university graduates. I touched on this in the post, Internet Marketing Experts Made, Not Born.

I was inspired by the commitment to excellence demonstrated by the graduates. They pushed through a variety of very challenging obstacles in order to achieve their educational goals and advance their career prospects. It is incredible how much value focused study can have for a person.

Internet Marketers and home business entrepreneurs can be dedicated learners and achievers as well, even if they don’t attend university. There are other ways to build one’s knowledge base, and turning your automobile into a university on wheels is one of them. … Read the rest of this entry

Have you got a few minutes to answer a question? It has the power to change your life forever. All you have to do is just think about the question for a minute, determine your answer, then use it to accelerate your success, beginning immediately.

Here’s the thing. In my previous two posts I talked about what it takes to achieve mastery in your field. I made references to recommendations from two inspirational leaders, Earl Nightingale and Brian Tracy who both promote the value of committing to a dedicated daily reading program.

Looking at their philosophies on personal and business achievement I realized that the foundational theme is focus. You must decide what your focus is; you must commit to that focus; and you must engage in a program to excel in that area of focus. … Read the rest of this entry

Brian Tracy says that it takes five to seven years to achieve mastery in your field. “There are no shortcuts that work in the long term,” he cautions. You must commit to excellence and you need to regularly feed your mind with positive materials.

In my previous post, Internet Marketing Experts Made, Not Born, I highlighted a similar perspective put forward by the late Earl Nightingale. Earl said that if you spend an hour a day studying in your chosen field, you will become an expert in five years.

It is clear that these two highly influential thought leaders believe that the key to personal and business success is commitment: more specifically, a commitment to personal development, educational edification, and mastery of one’s field of endeavour.

Some people may think that five to seven years is a long time to wait to become an expert in their field. Brian and Earl have each pointed out that the time is going to pass anyway, so why not use it constructively and purposefully? … Read the rest of this entry

The week before last, it was my pleasure to be part of a three day event recognizing the achievement of some highly motivated and dedicated individuals: graduation ceremonies for adult students who earned graduate and undergraduate degrees through distance education.

Honoured at this event were about 400 grads that travelled from across the country and around the world to attend the ceremony. Thousands more were not able to attend.

My role in this event allowed me to take a close look at the challenges and highlights of each of the nearly 400 who attended. This intimate review of their stories was both humbling and inspiring. It is incredible, the commitment and sacrifice that some of these graduates made to reach their goal. … Read the rest of this entry

Lost Interest In My Internet Home Business?

Hey, friends and readers, you may (or may not) have noticed that I haven’t posted here for a few weeks. It’s not that I have lost interest in my Internet Home Business, no not in the least. It’s just that I have been very busy offline.

You may (or may not) know that I am a home based freelance writer in addition to building an Internet Marketing business. I have a few local corporate clients for whom I write content: some every few months, some a few times a year, and one contract that involves a major annual event that consumes much of my time and attention for approximately two months, mid-April to mid-June.

This year, it just so happened that ALL of these projects came together at about the same time! It’s amazing what a person can get done, under the gun, when time is at a premium.

Well, I’m not out of the water yet … Read the rest of this entry
