I have been cooking our food instead of going out to eat. It’s saved us money and I know exactly what’s in my food because I put it in there. I don’t have to worry about the cook having a bad day or the kitchen staff wanting to pull pranks. So with that in mind, I checked out a copy of Cheap. Fast. Good! There are SOOO many recipes in here, your only problem will be deciding what to cook first. You’re sure to find something that will please even the most pickiest of eaters.

Okay so I bought a copy of Adrienne Graham’s book, “No You Can’t Pick My Brain, It Costs Too Much” a while back and I just had a chance to finish reading it. It is something I recommend wholeheartedly whether you are just starting your business or are a seasoned professional. Invariably you will start having people ask you to “Give them a call.” or “Do lunch” or “Have coffee.” when what they really want is a free consultation without going through your sales funnel. This book will give you ammunition and teach you what to say when people start trying to pick your brain. Don’t delay! You are losing money if you don’t add this book to your collection and APPLY the information you have learned. I have links to purchase your copy of this book below (yes this is an affiliate link).

I’m sure you are aware of how easily systems can get broken into. It seems like every other day we see news stories about a website getting hacked into and information getting stolen. This is obviously not something you want happening to your company. This type of thing is a PR disaster. I can only imagine the legal hassles that happen when these things occur. So what can you do to prevent this? Well you can make sure that your employees are trained in how to keep data secure. You can make sure that your employees are using passwords that aren’t easy to guess.
If you’re reading this you have already decided that your business needs to get on Facebook. You’re probably confused about how things on Facebook work. You probably have questions about Custom Tabs and how to keep your page full of content. If you have all of these questions, you might want to consider hiring someone to manage some of these things. Here are some things to think about when you are looking for someone to outsource your Facebook marketing to.
Today you guys are fortunate enough to read a guest post by one of my buddies, Nicole Dean. This will be all about helping virtual assistants understand plr. Enjoy

Here’s a question that I received today. I thought it was such a valuable question that I wanted to share my response.
I hear you talking about PLR articles, but I’m a Virtual Assistant, not an Internet Marketer. I need clients, not content.
Why should I care?
Dear Virtual Assistant:
Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to respond to your great question.
PLR content can actually help you to get more clients. And, I’ll explain how.
As someone who hires and works with a lot of Virtual Assistants in my business, I’ll tell you that I hire oftentimes based upon the knowledge that person shows just as much as what they “say” they can do.
For instance, let’s compare two Virtual Assistants (hypothetically – these aren’t real people).
Susie and Tessa.
I go to Susie’s website and she’s got three pages – including contact, services, and pricing. I look around a little and discover that Susie specializes in videos and multimedia. I think “hmmm… interesting” and then leave.
Next, I find Tessa’s website. She’s got the same pages on her website as Susie – contact, services, and pricing. It looks to me as if she also specializes in videos and multimedia. That’s not what I’m looking for, so I’m about to leave when I notice that she has a blog. On her blog, she’s got articles about how I can use video in my business and how to also use video to get more traffic and make more money. I’m interested. She obviously knows her stuff. I contact her to find out how she can help me to get more traffic with my existing videos – and to brainstorm more videos that I can incorporate into my business on an ongoing basis.
Tessa got my business. Susie did not.
Why? Because Tessa did some things right.
She showed her knowledge.
She demonstrated that she understands marketing by having a blog.
She made me think about my business.
She seemed like a person who I’d like to work with.
How does this apply to PLR content? Easy.
Susie could have had my business if she had purchased some great quality PLR content and published it on her blog. Of course, as always, I would recommend that Susie use the content as a starting point only and then add her own ideas and examples into it to make it uniquely hers. But, the important thing is that she could have had an active blog offering great value to potential new customers that showcased her talent and made people desperate to hire her.
And, she could have done it for under $20.

Okay so I caved in. I saw this email in my inbox about niche websites that all I had to do was upload a file to my server and I’d have a monetized site all ready to go. That offer was too good for me to pass up. Let me explain why. One of the things I’ve been working on is building up my passive income. These sites already have adsense and some clickbank and amazon programs already in place. All you have to do is change a few fields and upload the site to your server. Now you should probably change some of the colors and add some more content just so your site looks differently from everyone else’s. Don’t wait until your site is perfect to launch it. That is the worst mistake people make is waiting until things are perfect. You miss out on money doing that. So here’s how you can take advantage of today’s Wacky Weekend Dimesale. Just click on this link (my affiliate link): http://www.learnsmallbusiness.com/suggests/15turnkey.html now to take advantage of this great deal.
I had the pleasure of sampling some free chicken from zaycon foods thanks to being a member of the Georgia Social Media Moms group. Basically what the company does is they buy certain food items such as chicken and turkey in bulk direct from farms and then they sell it from the back of a truck at special events in locations across the country. I made some of the chicken for lunch and for dinner yesterday and let me tell you, these are some huge pieces of chicken. I wouldn’t want to meet these chickens in a dark alley. By the way the smallest package you can get is like 40 lbs. Yes you can buy more than one box. The chicken is boneless and skinless so it is basically ready to refrigerate and freeze. If you don’t have a freezer big enough, you can just split some with a neighbor or a family member.
Why Social Media Is My Favorite Form Of Internet Marketing
by DeAnna Troupe
I write a lot about social media. I probably beat the topic to death. I can’t help it. Social media simply rocks for me. It’s the best thing that happened to the Internet since Al Gore invented it. 🙂
All kidding aside, I will explain why I love social media so much in this blog post.
I know accounting is not the most exciting topic in the world. However, it is important to have some type of accounting system to track your money when you run a small business. Here are some free accounting software programs that I have found from across the web.
This is a desktop based program.
https://www.matrixboss.com/ – This is web based. It’s free if you have 0-200 customers. If you have more than 200 customers there is a fee.
