Obituary...' a fallen friend passing ..! Courtesy

Obituary printed in the London Times.....Absolutely Brilliant !! Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense , who has been with us for many years. 
No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. 

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm;
- Life isn't always fair;
- And maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. 

 Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. 

Common Sense was preceded in death,
-by his parents,
Truth and Trust,
-by his wife, Discretion,
-by his daughter, Responsibility,
-and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers; 
- I Know My Rights
- I Want It Now
- Someone Else Is To Blame
- I'm A Victim
- Pay me for Doing Nothing

  Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

"Why a Break-ation may be just for you" states James Martell in an Email to Johan of

James Martell wrote: Hi Johan, Success in the affiliate marketing business so often depends on sharp wits and creativity. Those wits can be dulled after plugging away at your computer for months at a time. That creativity can wane. When they do, you'll see your conversions falter, your traffic ebb--that's not a good thing! How do you get that razor's edge back? Take a breather. Step back, let your mind rest. I know you probably don't feel like you can get away from your business, especially when you're still trying to get it up and running, and you don't have to. Break-ations are an easy way to get your creative juices flowing again and blow those cobwebs right out of your head. The beauty of affiliate marketing is that-outsourcing and mobile technology can offer you incredible freedom--you can stay on top of things anywhere you can get a Wi-Fi signal. I often combine trips to seminars and conventions with a day or two of "me time" somewhere refreshing. I've toured San Francisco, spent time in Germany, been to the Caribbean, and even roamed around my own "backyard" to discover some truly unique experiences. You don't need months away, usually a few days will do the trick. It doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg either. Arlene, my wife, is my own travel agent. She's an expert on where and how to find the best deals, how best to structure a short getaway to get the most relaxation and excitement out of it, and she knows a ton of little tips including one that can net you a $600 dollar suite for just $20!

"Four P's of Marketing" Discovered in Blog of Rosalind Gardner, Penticton BC; Penned by Heather Smith.

The Four P’s of Marketing

Guest post contributed by Heather Smith.
If you do not know what the four P’s of marketing are – you are not alone.
There are many people who do not understand the basic relationship that makes up successful marketing. The four P’s were originally created as a marketing mix. Having a marketing mix is often fundamental when forming a product or brand’s unique selling point i.e. the unique quality that makes a product different from its competitors.
The term marketing mix was originally created in an article written by Neil Borden called “The Concept of the Marketing Mix.” He became aware of the term after he heard about if from an acquaintance, James Culliton, who in 1948 designated the role of the marketing manager as a mixer of ingredients.
Getting to the point, a proper marketing mix allows your product or brand to achieve the highest sales and recognition it possibly can. Like having a balanced meal makes you as healthy as possible, having a balanced marketing mix helps to make your product or brand as profitable as possible.
The four P’s that make up the marketing mix are: price, product, promotion, and place.
  1. Price

    The price is the amount of money a customer pays for the product or service. The price is very significant as it governs the company’s profit and therefore existence. Modifying the price has an intense impact on the marketing strategy and, contingent on the price elasticity of the product, it will frequently affect the demand and sales as well. The price that the marketer sets should balance the other elements of the marketing mix.
  2. Product

    The product is the simplest idea. It is an item or service that fulfills what a consumer needs or wants. Your product can literally be anything, even an idea. You must have a concrete grasp on what the product is, however, before you can successfully market it.
  3. Promotion

    Promotion can be all of the methods of communication that a marketer may use to deliver information to various people about the product. Promotion is made up of things like: advertising, public relations, personal selling, viral and word-of-mouth, and sales promotion. Promotion is essentially how you get the word out about your product or service.
  4. Place

    Place is all about providing the product at a location which is convenient for consumers to access. Today, that is frequently online. Place also has a lot to do with distribution, or getting the product to the customer. Several approaches such as intensive distribution, selective distribution, exclusive distribution and franchising can be applied by the marketer to match the other parts of the marketing mix.
The four P’s can help you become a better marketer by understanding the simplified balance of marketing products or services. Once you have a good understanding of these four aspects, you can have more success in marketing your products or services.
