This Time It IS Different

That’s Insane!

The definition of insanity is doing the exact same thing again and again and expecting different results.

I saw an ad in rotation today for “A brand new penny auction–guaranteed 100% legal”.  Really?  Somebody is really going to try that game again?  I’d guess that the idea is to make a pile of money then get out just before the Feds come crashing through the door.  I wonder what country the current site is based out of.  I’d bet it’s not the US or the UK.  I didn’t even run whois on the address, I just don’t care.

The point I am trying to get to is that all of us have moral choices to make about who and what we support or promote or own.  I like to think that I watch myself pretty carefully and that my choices are always good.  They aren’t.  But money isn’t worth enough for me to violate my standards…

Moral Choices in Advertising?  Are you Kidding??

Not at all.  Some of my friends won’t eat Tuna as a way to protect dolphins.  I have friends that ride bicycles to ‘save the earth’.  Some people won’t bank at a corporate bank under any circumstance.  We all make choices and actions based on our moral values.  I would ask you all, and will try myself, to make those same sorts of choices in the TE business.  Don’t let money be the only currency you trade in.  Please.  We’ll all be a lot happier if we don’t.

Next batter…

I got friends in looowww places…

Don’t let that song fool you, I’m a rock and roll guy…and I got to watch some pros rock and roll this week.  I was on the near sidelines to watch the run up and the launch of the new Tim Tech mailer, Listnerds (join here).  Very exciting to watch and even be a small part of. Those guys really did a bang up job on the mailer, I’m sure it will be a wild success.  Two days in and they are at 2000 members and still growing hourly…

Haven’t heard of it??  You will.  Tim Tech gave their affiliates the first two days to make hay on the new subscriptions before they even began to advertise.  They will carpet the industry with ads and promotions, you can be sure.  A really classy move giving the associates time to push the launch.  I’m not so sure I’d have had the patience to do so…Nicely played, TimTech!

I’m just sayin’
