Using A Second Monitor With Your Main Computer

using two monitorsHey party people,

I didn’t send an e-mail broadcast yesterday about my latest post.

I am seriously thinking on quitting blogging for good to focus on product creation.

But today I was thinking how can I teach you about wordpress, themes and customization when I don’t have a blog?

That would be a valid point but still, for a lot of my projects I’ll be using wordpress so I still would be good in that area but honestly, I think I can still keep this blog and just update it about once a week.

That number will decrease with time to maybe once every 15 days or even once a month, I’m not sure yet.

But I promise I will share the most ridiculous amazing information EVER on the internet.

Not because I’m that good but because I believe that sharing with you an actual way to make money would be far better instead of teaching you all the small details about blogging.

With that said, I recorded a quick video yesterday and I want to show you what you can do in case you have a spare monitor and a video card with two video outputs.  Continue Reading →

How Social Media Can Help You Stop Credit Card Fraud

stop credit card fraud with social mediaSocial Media has come a long way since the Internet was created.

So has credit card fraud.

And whenever I read about credit card fraud I immediately get bored.

It’s a topic I don’t enjoy reading because it has never happened to me in the first place.

Well that changed yesterday…

It All Started With An Unknown Payment On My Bank Statement

A few days ago, I checked my bank statement online and I couldn’t recognize a payment.

If it had been $1, or $2 or even $20 USD, I wouldn’t had been worried about it but it was more than that.

unknown payment

$1,010.09 MXN

I buy a lot of stuff online and I normally keep good track of what I’m buying but I was 100% sure that payment was NOT mine.

However I let it slip because the legend said “SPORT SEASONS” and I’m all up for sports.

I watch them, I used to bet on them and I practice a few of them (I’m a long distance runner).

So I thought… well maybe I did buy something after all and just can’t remember.

All of this happened as soon as I woke up so I went downstairs to prepare breakfast, took a shower afterwards and all that time I couldn’t stop thinking about that payment and I decided to do something about it.

After all, you can never be too secure right?  Continue Reading →

Share A Sale Affiliate Network And First Check Odissey

shareasale affiliate networkImportant instructions for reading this post…

1. I really wanted to name this article like this:

Why You Should Join The Share A Sale Affiliate Network If You’re Serious About WordPress.

But the reality is that I spent all my day trying to cash a ShareASale check and it wasn’t pretty. (I ended up soaked in sweat even though I had a cold shower before going outside)

So I’m leaving that boring headline Share A Sale Affiliate Network And First Check Odissey instead which sounds more like what happened and…

2. I’ll be as brief as possible as an attention span experiment for you. (and because it makes me feel smart to say random stuff like that)

In fact, I’m going to start with the best part and finish with the boring part and see what happens.

The WIIFM Element

That weird looking acronym means “what’s in it for me?“.

And for addressing that, I made a quick video opening the check envelope (bo-ring!) and revealing how much I made (ok, that’s more… Me Gusta!)

It’s not one dollar in revenue but it’s not thousands either… so let’s check it out now, shall we?  Continue Reading →

How To Organize Yourself Like a Pro With Less Than $5 Bucks

How To Organize Yourself With A Monthly PlannerIt’s finally Monday again (I love starting the week!)

And here I am as always, trying to improve my productivity and keep myself organized.

A few days ago I was talking about how to organize your gmail inbox using gmail labels and gmail filters.

Well I just ‘discovered’ a new item that is going to help me quite a LOT to keep me even more organized now.

The Monthly Planner

The reality is that I needed to buy some double layer DVDs.

And yesterday after some roaming around the local office store, I found some incredible whiteboards.

Magnetized, non-magnetized, black boards, fluorescent boards, digital boards, I was in whiteboard heaven.

I did not go crazy though and decided to bring home one tiny 30x40cm whiteboard (monthly planner) with me.

A Few Ideas For A Monthly Planner

From the top of my head, you can use this for:

  • Important Webinars
  • Skype Interviews
  • Business Chat Meetings
  • Blog Schedule Posting
  • Product Launches
  • Product Development
  • Book Creation
  • Software Projects
  • Etc

Really, you can do just about anything as long as you consider the size of your whiteboard.  Continue Reading →

Friday The 13th Face Your Fears

friday the 13thRemember the Friday The 13th… movies?

I used to love watching Friday The 13th when I was a kid but I also remember the fear that those movies made me feel.

A normal let’s watch a friday the 13th movie day would start something like this:

Friday The 13th: My Watching Experience

1. At first I would be undecided to watch the movie and analyze what my chances were.

  • Am I going to watch this alone?
  • Is it really dark outside already?
  • Are my parents home?

2. Then I would man up and start watching the movie.

  • First ten minutes and I’m watching it like a boss.
  • When the killings start and the panic is everywhere, I start thinking that maybe watching this movie wasn’t a smart decision after all.
  • I’m also afraid to move one inch from my spot.

3. By the hour…

  • I’m all freaked the heck out of my mind and I’m seriously thinking I’m going to die.
  • Jason is inside my house and my job is to not bump myself into him at all costs.
  • I’m 100% sure that my chances of surviving are actually, ZERO.

How To Use Gmail Labels And Filters To Keep Your Gmail Inbox Organized

How To Use Gmail Labels And Filters To Keep Your Gmail Inbox OrganizedUsing Gmail Labels and Gmail Filters shouldn’t be something hard to understand.

I remember that not too long ago I wasn’t using any kind of gmail filters or gmail folders and my gmail inbox was the definition of chaos.

I was missing important e-mails left and right and I had to constantly find myself browsing through pages and pages just to hunt down an e-mail I thought I had never received.

That stopped since I started using the power of gmail labels and gmail filters and today I want to share how you can get out of that gmail inbox nightmare, stay more organized, be more productive and save yourself some precious time.  Continue Reading →
