McAfee Sends a Message from His Grave

John McAfee was the eccentric founder and US presidential candidate. He died from an apparent suicide. According to some reports, he preferred to die than be extradited to the U.S. to face tax evasion, securities fraud, and money laundering charges for what he allegedly did during the 2000s. That is another story.

McAfee antivirus is what interests me. It's a poor product that McAfee sold his software company for $100 million in the 1990s. How did he do that?

Perhaps he was just in the right...

How to Make Money from Other People’s Ideas

I want to be clear right up front – there is NO stealing required to do this.

In fact, professionals have been doing this same thing forever, or at least since people have been creating stories, content, and so forth.

I’ll give you some movie examples:

Bridget Jones Diary (2001) is really a modern version of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

Clueless (1995) is based on Jane Austen’s Emma.

Cruel Intentions (1999) is a modern version of Pierre Choderlos de Lacios’...

Case Study: $4,200 a Month with Zero-Knowledge and No Product

This is a part-time business that quite literally requires no specialized knowledge, and you don’t even need a product.

You need just enough people skills to build rapport over the phone, Skype, Zoom, or whatever mode of communication you choose.

business strategy Dec 14, 2020

Why is it if we would like to be at our most creative and innovative, we resort to utilizing the very worn-out cliché at our disposal?

"We will need to think beyond the box on this one!"

It gives us guidelines and bounds about what we would like to achieve.

By way of instance, if the state I would like you to compose a post on fresh ways small companies can utilize social media, I have only given you a 'box.'

How School Ruined Your Business Skills

In a traditional education you are taught there is ONE right answer.

Remember multiple choice tests? You were told that “C” was the right answer and “A” “B” and “D” were wrong.

But what if there is a “E”, an “F” or even several hundred different possibilities?

Nope. According to school, there is always ONE right answer.

It makes grading tests a whole lot easier, plus it trains people to follow orders from bosses who...
