We get catalogs almost daily, so the other day I decided to make use of them and see what branding tips that help establish your image I could find and share with you. This 7 minute video lets you take a look at a group of catalogs and shares what I learned.
It's amazing what you can pick up from the catalog cover and copy, isn't it? I give them a quick look (the covers) before I trash …
What REALLY works for small business owners? And what do small business owners really think of some of the deals they are offered by other internet marketers?
Marnie Pherson and I love to chat on Facebook about what's working in our businesses, what has been a total failure, who is too big a jerk to work with in the internet marketing industry, and how we really feel about life and work. In a conversation last week we decided to take it public - ALL of it. Welcome to the Marnie and Sue Peep Show - two successful internet marketer's unscripted chats about the good, the bad, the ugly and the …
Do you fool yourself into thinking that you are taking purposeful action toward what you want? I do that sometimes. Honestly I think we all fall into this habit now and again. Being conscious about your behaviors and how they are purposeful toward what you say you want is key for succeeding in business and in one's personal life.

Are you looking for speaking success?
I get asked often how to have speaking success - how to get in front of audiences and do so well that you get invited back often. Here's a quick video about Instant Speaking Success, a very useful little book I keep right by my laptop all the time. Why? Because the author, Paul B.

Outlining workshops and webinars
Setting up sales letters.

I was in Florida just about to indulge in my favorite food of all, the delectable stone crab claw. The ocean waters lapped up against the edge of the pier where I sat, and pelicans were busy soaring and swooping a few feet away.
