    Nobody on Their Death Bed Wished They Had Spent More Time at the Office 

    Why do folks do endless loops? Last time I ran a business with employees, I felt like I was running a marathon with no time to look back. You do what you do and keep going – Did it turn out ok? Great. Did it turn out bad? Damn, make a note and above all, keep moving. The main focus for me running my company was to GET OUT OF THE WAY. If I was in the way of something, it wouldn’t get done, since I had true overload of stuff – I was plenty busy getting out of the way so things and people would “Run with it”. I would ask people to just figure it out and do it – My motto was “I trust you” in the case of people managing people, I always made it clear “I will back you up 100% no matter what – it doesn’t matter if you get it wrong, I don’t care – I care about CONSISTENCY and getting it DONE”.

    Now I’m stuck in Groundhog Day with the Red Queen.

    I’m in a meeting to prepare for the meeting in preparation for the meeting we need to prepare for the real meeting.

    These people take themselves way too seriously. Tomorrow I’ve got a single four-hour conference call. Gotta be shitting me.

    I See Buyer Data 

    Something that struck me as odd is that I can see the full name of the people that buy through my affiliate ID in Clickbank. I’m seeing much more information than what I imagined spread to the four winds. Let’s see:

    1- I see the full search terms that drove the visitor, not just what I bid on.
    2- I see the mouse movements of the visitor on my site, when they left, when they came back, what they highlighted, what they clicked.
    3- I see their e-mail and name

    That’s a heck of a lot, considering that all I’m doing is acting as a go-between.

    By the way… Another conversion tonight! .. After days of dry traffic.

    But this really sucks – By the time I can dedicate some time to my site(s) I’m falling asleep. I’m getting about 3-4 hours of sleep a night – I’m going for the Deluxe night tonight… Five hours!

    Something’s gotta give.

    Expensing Lap Dances & Dancing with Poles 

    Having worked in corporate Sales, this video struck home when I saw it a couple of years ago. Its simply hilarious. Just got a memo from the Rat Maze Overlords saying something about not taking customers to “indecent entertainment” or some other euphemism… In other words: Folks, don’t take customers to nightclubs or brothels – depending on your location.

    Meanwhile…  Azoogle wants to take everyone to the PlayBoy Mansion for a “Job Well Done” or a “Well Done Blow Job”, I’m not sure yet – Jeremy sure has a big grin on his face in this picture.

    I Dream of CPA 

    I just dreamt I was playing well with CPA offers – my stats were good and I was telling myself “all I have to do is drive traffic! Wow” – I was even showing some family about it. Talk about a one-track mind. All I really want to do is go to the Playboy Mansion with Azoogle in August. I’m submitting my 250 word “essay” for their contest ASAP!

    Jonathan Volk 509 – Bandwidth Exceeded 

    Looks like Jonathan’s latest story about his sis’ birthday party is a killer – I get error 509, bandwidth limit exceeded. So much for unlimited hosting.

        Wow. You are *really* on top of your mentions.
        Now that you’ve paid the bandwidth bill, I gotta say I love the crazy cake idea.

    Bit.ly Spying 

    Love it when folks use bit.ly to shorten affiliate URLs, all I have to do is add a plus sign at the end of the URL to peek at their stats… Number of clicks, countries, referrers, etc.
