2016 State of the Nation

I want to preface this post with the following. I am not a political pundit by any stretch of the imagination. However I felt the urge to write about politics in this context which I like to call my State of the Nation address.

I will be telling you why I believe Donald Trump should be our next president!

I don’t know how many of you remember the 1992 presidential election. There were 3 candidates. Ross Perot, Bill Clinton and George Bush. Ross Perot was and probably still is a business man. He ended up taking votes from George Bush, Clinton won the election and the rest is history.

I think Clinton did a pretty good job running the country with a few exceptions but those indiscretions don’t really matter anymore. Politicians will be politicians and since women are attracted to powerful men, these potential pitfalls will always exist. Much like very famous musicians always deal with temptation. I can’t speak on this topic with much experience other than to say I can’t imagine how any man can continue to say no when sex is literally being offered up on a continuous basis. Oscar Wilde said it best when he said “I can resist everything except temptation.”.

Decision 2016 makes me think back to 1992, except this year the business man is running as a Republican and not an Independent.

Donald Trump should be the next president of the United States because he is a business man. I think it’s high time we start viewing running this country from a business perspective and stop viewing it as a popularity contest.

I imagine you’re probably thinking that Trump has said some pretty dumb things. That may be the case depending on how you believe but he’s also said some very true things. I sincerely believe that Donald Trump would make a good president not only because he’s a business man but because he says the truths that people don’t want to hear but they need to hear. Often times hearing undesirable truths is just the thing people need to hear for real growth and forward progression. You may not always like to hear what the man says but at least he’s not afraid to speak the truth. Reality needs to be faced at some point and the sooner the better, no matter how painful it might be.

This is a man who doesn’t need campaign contributions. He should not be susceptible to being in some campaign contributor’s pocket when he gets in the white house. That means he will actually get to execute his own plan and not have to “payback” campaign contributors.

Can you honestly say the same thing about Hillary Clinton? Hasn’t she already cost people their lives as Secretary of State? Hasn’t Hillary been alleged to have mishandled Top Secret information? How many questions marks are acceptable for a Presidential candidate or even worse a Presidential candidate’s character? Does hurting people’s feelings with your words now carry more power than killing people with your actions?

My fellow Americans we have a big decision in 2016. We have seen and already know how politicians run this country. Perhaps it’s time we see how a business man would run the United States of America. For me it’s been refreshing to hear a candidate speak the truth (even abrasively) and not just say what I want to hear to get my vote.

It’s time to stop focusing so much on partisan lines and start focusing on making this country great again. At the end of the day we always take a leap of faith with whatever candidate we vote for. Let’s take a leap of faith on business and let politics sit this one out.

How to Naturally Increase Testosterone Levels

Testosterone is the hormonal word that is synonymous with “manhood! It’s a hormone that is manufactured in the testicles based on signals received from the adrenal glands. The signal between your adrenal glands and testicles can be weakened by things such as age, alcohol and coffee consumption.

The Top Reasons Internet Companies Are Failing

The Top Causes Internet Companies Are Failing

The economy of the 90’s and early 2000’s was fueled by technology. Many internet companies came and went in a short time. Currently, there is a new generation of internet companies, some with amazing ideas. There are of course, many internet companies that have thrived for years, including Google and Facebook. For every successful Internet company, there are dozens, if not hundreds, that have failed. Here, are the top 5 reasons internet companies are failing.


There are a lot of websites with huge followings and awesome products. What is holding them back is a failure to monetize. Even larger companies run into this problem, having a site with hundreds of thousands of daily visitors means nothing if profits are not created. Anytime a website starts charging for content, users flock to free alternatives at the drop of a hat. Anyone starting a web based business needs to figure out how to monetize their customer base.


A lot of internet companies do not have experienced employees. There are fundamental business concepts that are being ignored. Many internet companies have very young employees, which is okay for the tech side. For the business side, internet companies should be seeking out employees that have experience and serious knowledge of what it takes to make money.


The internet is very competitive for many businesses. Any business that is easy to start naturally is going to run into a lot of competition. Groupon is a fabulous business idea that has become very popular. Unfortunately for them, many companies have sprung up that are trying to replicate their success. An internet business can hit the ground running within a few weeks, which makes potential competition fierce.


Many of the greatest ideas are pretty well established. Social networking, search, news, these fields have been conquered. To make money on the internet, one needs to come up with truly new ideas. Unless well funded, nobody is going to unseat the big boys, nor even make a dent in their markets. Thinking outside of the box is important when running an internet company.


People on the internet are very finicky when it comes to choice. What is hot one day, may fall by the wayside very quickly. Myspace and AOL are two internet companies that come to mind. Established sites can lose their dominance in what seems a matter of months.


Gone are the days of massive venture capital investments. Now venture capitalists are reluctant to throw money at anything on the internet. In the past boom, anything that had to do with the internet could get solid funding. Right now, a solid business plan is needed to even think about asking for money. Many internet companies are not even able to get off the ground without adequate funding.

Internet companies have come back to life. The 90’s were an anomaly for internet companies. Now, to succeed, any company must strive to be like a normal business. This means adequate funding, serious employees, and a business plan that will make money. With that being said, there is still a lot of money and fame to be had by starting up an internet business. One just needs to be much more cautious than before.

Words to Live by When Choosing a Reputable Phoenix Moving Company

When it comes time to move in the Valley Of The Sun there are plenty of Phoenix moving companies from which to choose. That is a good thing; however you are then faced with the task of finding out who you will hire to do the task. There are a lot of factors that go into making sure you choose the right Phoenix moving company and that you are getting the most for your money. We will go into what to look for in when making this very important decision.

First of all let’s address the issue of moving…period. It is a major pain; there is no other way to describe it. Now, some folks choose to go it alone while others elect to let someone else handle it all. That being said, if you decide to hire a Phoenix moving company here is what you need to know. Start by talking to others you know who have hired a moving company here and find out what their particular experience was like. Whether they were good or not, get their honest opinion. Ask about the strengths and weaknesses of the moving company they used.

When checking out various movers in Phoenix you want to make sure that they have a good reputation and record of reliability. You also want to make sure you research as many Phoenix moving companies as time permits. Compare their rates, guarantees and see if they’re licensed, bonded and insured. In addition to the aforementioned, check with city and state agencies to see if there have been any complaints brought against the moving companies on your list.
If the movers you are considering have websites, by all means check them. See if they have testimonials and also do an online review of the company. Most reputable Phoenix moving companies will have a website along with a physical address and a phone number that is answered by a live person during normal business hours. Another thing is to make sure they are as full-service as possible and can handle your every moving need.

Also, when screening Phoenix movers, make sure they send someone out to actually see what is being moved so you they can give you a clear estimate. If any companies will not do this, by all means scratch them off your list. And remember, cheaper is not always better. We know everyone wants to cut corners money wise, especially in today’s economy. But when it comes to something this important value is not always measured in money.

That said, there are plenty of reliable Phoenix moving companies. It is on you to practice due diligence, check reviews on each prospect thoroughly and apply common sense. Doing so will lead you to the correct Phoenix mover for your needs.

Dangling the link exchange carrot

I recently had someone contact me through one of my blogs wanting to exchange links, after I had already agreed to exchange links with them from another site of mine. They obviously didn’t know they were dealing with the same person. That’s one of the great things about the internet. You can be almost anyone you want to be. Their goal was three links to three unique URLs. I told them to write me a unique blog post of three hundred and twenty five words and I would be more than happy to post their article on my site. Do you know what I heard from them? Jack squat, no response, not one single word.

It’s funny how ambitious people are when it comes to asking for links but their ambition wavers quickly when you desire more from them than anchor text and a URL. I don’t feel as though I asked them for too much. They were asking for a link on a PR4 blog and not just some link juice evaporated, high outbound link piece of garbage blog. We’re talking about a well managed, pay attention to the number of outbound links type of blog. Did my website strike you as the kind of website that just gives links to everyone who asks? Come on, be serious!

The aforementioned occurrence conjured up images of another individual who emails me about links on that very site. We’ll call him the g mail individual. This g mail individual must have several hundred domain names all of which are PR1 or better and all seem to have at least one hundred outbound links. The g mailer has at least the same number of g mail accounts as he has websites. He, she, them or they pretend to be man, woman, child or beast. They always have the same tired offer. I will exchange three links from my sites for one from your site. If you own a blog PR3 or higher then you probably know the people I’m talking about. I’m sure you’ve received the same emails. Check out the image below. The wording of the email probably looks familiar.

Roland Barthes dot com

I’m not going to lie and say that their offer isn’t intriguing. The thought of getting three links in exchange for one is a great deal when you’re trading equal value. Unfortunately, the exchange I’m writing about isn’t a great deal for me. It’s a great deal for them but NOT for me.

Until next time, take care of yourselves and each other.

Free Challenge Coin Artwork

Free challenge coin artwork seems to be all the rage these days. Customers want to see what their custom coin is going to look like before they order and custom challenge coin vendors gladly fulfill the prospective customer’s desire with hopes of attaining a new customer. Task Force 145 Military Challenge Coin

The prospective customer’s point of view is easy to see. What person, group or organization doesn’t like to get what they want, especially for free? I am a member of the, “I like free stuff majority” believe me. However I disagree with the free challenge coin artwork practice. I understand the logic behind it but disagree nonetheless.

The idea of giving something away in an effort to obtain business or customer information is not anything new. This practice is known as the law of reciprocation.  Non profit organizations have employed this strategy for years. The best example I can think of off the top of my head, is the free address labels I used to receive in the mail. You’re probably familiar with what I’m talking about. The address labels that were included along with some information about how you can make a donation as a thank you for the “free” address labels.

I believe that all challenge coin artwork is free. As a matter of fact, I know it is. I can’t think of a single custom coin manufacturer that charges for artwork. Artwork is part of the process of creating a custom coin order and you are NOT charged anything for the artwork itself. Another thing that irritates me about “free” challenge coin artwork is the companies that are supposedly giving away free artwork seem to charge their customers more in an effort to make up for the lost time and money that was invested in the free artwork that didn’t convert into a challenge coin order. Asking a graphic designer to invest their time into anything for free devalues the entire design industry. Would you tell a house painter to paint your house for free so you can see what it’s going to look like? Not likely. Then, why in the world would you ask a company to provide you a free rendering, proof, artwork or whatever you wish to call it without any form of a commitment or obligation? Such a request makes no sense. It’s good for the customer but sets a horrible precedent for the challenge coin industry as a whole. Prospective customers expect all custom coin companies to join in these reindeer games, which is a preposterous notion to say the least.

I will finish by saying that prospective challenge coin customers are still going to get their free challenge coin artwork from ten different companies, pick the least expensive option and custom coin vendors are still going to do free artwork without a commitment. All I have accomplished here is just another blog post.
