LastPass Review – The Last Password You Will Ever Need To Remember

  • Are you sick and tired of trying to
    remember all your online passwords?
  • Do you worry about a hacker gaining access
    to all accounts on your computer?
  • Want to save time by just remembering one Master Password?
  • Want to quickly access all your accounts
    across all your devices?

Watch My Review of LastPass

Since the year 2000 I’ve created 100s of passwords to log in to different accounts online. I often used the same password for every account thus making my accounts vulnerable to hackers.

Whenever I cleared my browser cache and cookies I’d lose all my login passwords and need to refer to my excel spreadsheet to find them again…a huge waste of time.

If I tried to access my accounts from another computer I’d often waste time trying to remember what passwords I used..usually making several attempts to find the correct one.

Perhaps you’ve had the same experience. If so, the best solution is to sign up for LastPass…a secure password manager.

5 Ways To Prevent “Shiny Object Syndrome”

shiny object syndrome

  • Do you currently have reports or software on your hard drive you’ve never opened or used?
  • Have you ever purchased products that did not deliver what they promised?
  • Did you ever buy products because the sales page was so good?

I have to confess I’ve purchased a lot of “stuff” online that still sits inside a folder on my computer waiting to be opened or installed. I bought it because I’d say to myself “I’d better get this now because I’ll probably need it later.” Inevitably I get busy with other things and soon forget what I’ve purchased and the initial excitement and enthusiasm for the product has disappeared.

What is “shiny object syndrome?”

Goal Setting – 5 Secrets To Success You Probably Never Thought Of

Article marketing strategy
Goal setting is a futile exercise if it’s not carefully planned out and acted upon. Every year I sit down to write out my goals for the new year then wonder why I didn’t accomplish them all. One of the main reasons is that I didn’t constantly refer back to them and created so many that I got overwhelmed.

Well, I have a solution for you that seems to work for me. You’ve probably heard of S.M.A.R.T. goals before but perhaps haven’t seen them personalized.

Online Business Ideas for Kids – Benefits

Have you thought about teaching your kids how to start an online business?

It’s crossed my mind many times during the growth of my children but I’ve always put the idea on hold because I wanted them to first interact with others (especially adults) in a physical location such as a store or restaurant.

Today is my son’s 15th birthday so I decided to revisit this topic.

The only job he ever got paid for outside our family setting was cutting the neighbors’ lawns. It made him good money but fizzled out in the winter (even though I suggested shoveling snow or racking leaves in the autumn).

This summer he wants to have a job that he can work at every day however I told him he needs to be procative because more qualified people are taking the jobs normally filled by students.

Benefits of kids starting an online business

1. Provide beginning business skills

Business skills are not normally taught in school until college so why not jump start the learning process and make money as well. Making money is a great incentive for kids to start an online business.

2. Teach personal responsibility

Apart from doing chores around the house an online business is another way for kids to take personal responsibility for the actions they perform to achieve the goals they want to attain.

3. Provide funding for college

College tuition is increasing every year and it won’t be long before your teenager is off to college. Starting an online business now may defray some or all of the costs of tuition down the road. It will also be a confidence booster for your kid. If successful at an early age he or she may become a very successful entrepeneur.

4. Transfer video game skills to entrepeneurial skills

Most kids these days are very skillful at mastering online games. They easily spend hours in the virtual world mastering online games. Instead of getting frustrated at all the time spent on these games transfer your kids’ skills to online business building?

By introducing the idea of starting an online business they may like it especially if they can use the money to purchase items they want but couldn’t afford before.

When it comes to raising kids I you want to expose them to many things. You never know what may peak their interest. For example I’ve exposed my kids to many sports however they only liked 1 or 2 of then so far.

Why not introduce them to starting an online business now?

Starting An Online Business – How to Have the Correct Mindset

mindsetBefore starting an online business you need to get your mind in order. Here are some things to think about before you dive in:

1. Make a commitment to go all the way

If you’re serious about doing business online you can’t just dabble in it. Commit yourself to finding one niche and stick with it to the end or make a time commitment.

2. Focus on one niche

Don’t jump from one opportunity to another. Decide on one idea and don’t get distracted by other offers even though they may look very appealing (there’s always something that looks better than what you have:-)

3. Follow your passion

Find a niche you’re passionate about. It will be easier to create content and market it. Your passion will also carry you through difficult times. If you select a niche you have no interest in you’ll soon lose interest and want to give up.

4. Surround yourself with positive people

You may be confronted by friends and relatives that say you are wasting your time and “get a real job.” Don’t listen to them. Instead relate to people who are in the same business by joining forums, master mind groups, attending teleseminars and reading blogs related to your field. You will receive a lot of positive support by interacting with people who have similar aspirations.

5. Create a business plan

Most businesses that are successful write a business plan which outlines their goals and objectives. It provides the road map to fulfilling your goals.

6. Create a marketing plan

Marketing is the life blood of your online business. If you don’t attract visitors to your web site you won’t make many sales. Choose several marketing strategies that work then stick with them. For example search engine optimzation, pay per click advertising, article marketing, blog.

7. Reward yourself

It’s easy to get consumed running your online business to the point where you get tired or burnt out. It’s important to keep up your energy level by eating and exercising regularly and rewarding yourself every time you accomplish your goals (especially if you the only sole proprietor of your business). Take breaks every 1 or 2 hours in the day to keep up your energy levels and you’ll continue to be productive.


Creating and running a successful online business takes discipline, hard work and a strong commitment. You’re not going to build it overnight so give yourself at least a year or 2 to make it work. Most businesses fail within the first 2 years so determine yourself to join the people who build an online business that is profitable.

Starting An Online Business – 7 Questions to Ask Before You Jump In

You’ve probably been inundated with emails from online marketers promising you’ll make 1000s of dollars if you buy their program or software. It’s easy to be tempted by these offers because the sales letter is well written and the promise of making a lot of money sounds good.

7 questions to ask yourself before starting an online business

1. What are your goals?

If your goal is to make 60K a year you need to first create a business plan how you will get there especially if you are just starting out. If you just want to make some extra income on the side you still need a step by step plan how to achieve it. (If you want to make an extra $100/day that shows you step by step how to do it, please visit: Starting an Online Business

2. What time commitment can you make?

If you can’t commit to at least 10 hours per week, you won’t make much progress and will be disappointed with yourself for investing your time and money in an unsuccessful business. A full time income from an online business means you need to invest at least as many hours as an offline business. It also takes great discipline and ability to focus on completing daily tasks that move you towards your goal.

3. Is the offer too good to be true?

If a business promises 10K/week, it sounds too good to be true and it probably is. Many marketers make money selling their products to others but know the product can’t deliver what it promises.

4. Who is behind the offer?

Trust is one of the most crucial elements for doing business with someone online. Check their web site to see if they included their contact information. Google their name to read their articles, myspace page or have a twitter account. If they are active online you will soon get an idea if they can be trusted by the content they’ve written or comments form others.

5. Are they easy to contact?

Email, call or fill out the contact form on their web site. If you don’t get a response within 24 hours go elsewhere. The faster the response the better. Ask to speak to the owner of the business rather than an assistant. Then owner has a big stake in making sure his business is successful.

6. Are there testimonials from satisfied customers?

A series of testimonials from customers that have done business over a period of time adds great credibility to a business. Testimonials should include email address or web site so they can be easily contacted.

7.Are you jumping from one business opportunity to another?

You’re probably familiar with the saying “the grass always appears greener on the other side.” If you don’t stick with one business offer it’s easy to jump to another. If you already have an online business look for ways to improve it instead of creating a new one. For instance you could improve conversion rates by rewriting your web copy or create a series of autoresponder messages to follow up on new clients and generate repeat sales. You could also offer new products (ie ebooks, short reports) that relate to your current business.

By asking the 7 questions above, you’ll make a more informed decision about starting an online business and increase your chances of it becoming a successful investment of time and money.
