The Homeless Man VS a Homeless Child (Social Experiment)

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Videos worth Watching

When I started watching this video I couldn’t help but think, “Of course people are ignoring him, they see it everyday and can’t help everyone. They’ve probably read about or witnessed so many ‘fake’ beggars scamming people that they learned to turn a blind eye.” As the video played and I watched how the meter-maid treated him, verbally and physically, I couldn’t help but think, this is just wrong. As the video played another man dumped his food on the homeless man. No one deserves to be treated like that. But what happened next was jaw-dropping and eye-opening at the same time…
Words alone cannot describe it… you have to watch the video. You’ll be glad you did.

I know this post doesn’t have anything to do with the content of this website, but every now and then I come across something that just has to be shared.

Post your thoughts about the video below.

T’is the Season

girl with christmas presentWith Christmas just around the corner, now is the time to start de-cluttering your home of all the items you no longer need or just don’t use. This is especially true if you have small children. There’s only so much room​ in the toy box and you know Santa is going to bring more, so where are you going to fit it all?

If your house is anything like mine when I was growing up, Santa also gave me clothes. I wasn’t particularity happy about that when I was a kid, but as a parent and grandparent I certainly can see Santa’s point. So what are you going to do with all the old clothes?

Some people like to donate them to thrift stores, but with all the stories about how frustrated people are that thrift stores are overpricing items that were donated to them, that doesn’t seem like a reasonable option anymore. Why let a store profit from your item and your generosity when some of that money is going into upper management’s pocket and not back into the community?

Sell your items and keep the money, you deserve it – you already paid for it once, so why not recoup some of that money to put towards new toys and clothes for your own children and help the community out at the same time?

There’s a lot of people who could benefit from used toys and clothing who can’t afford to shop at those over-priced thrift stores. Cut out the middleman and sell directly to them so they can afford to buy the items they need for Christmas.

Sound like a good idea? Great, so where do you start? The first step is to take my course to learn exactly how to sell your used items for free on Buy & Sell websites like eBay, Amazon, Kijiji and Craigslist without paying for costly ads. In this course you’ll learn:

  • How and Why you need to use pictures
  • How to take better looking pictures regardless of what camera you are using (including your cellphone)
  • How to write emotion-based descriptions that grab the buyer’s attention
  • How to price your items more effectively… and so much more.

Hidden Money, Right in Front of your Eyes.

Posted on Posted in Online Courses

Slide5I love finding money. Who doesn’t?

Money doesn’t always come in the form of paper notes, sometimes it can take on another form we don’t often think about as being money: the items you have sitting around your home collecting dust and cluttering up your basement, garage or storage shed. That’s money too! The trick is learning how to turn them into cash.

My brother updated his car stereo and gave me the equalizer he was replacing. I took it with the intention of putting it in my car, then life got in the way and I never got around to it. I was going through some storage boxes when I spotted it – forgotten about for almost 15 years! I almost threw it away but at the last minute, I decided to sell it online instead. Even if I only got 10 or 20 dollars for it it was better than nothing because I was going to throw it away.

I created and posted the ad. Within a couple of hours I received an offer for $80. I didn’t haggle, I took the money.

You’d be surprised how much people are willing to pay for items you think are not worth selling. If someone can benefit from something you’re not using, and you make money selling it, everyone’s a winner!

Posting an ad online doesn’t always mean sales because there’s more to it than simply having something to sell and somewhere to sell it.  If you want to have more success you need an ad that grabs people’s attention and makes them want to own it. Easier said than done right?

I made some rookie mistakes at first and couldn’t seem to generate enough interest or sales, so I studied countless books, websites and how-to videos to learn how to sell more effectively. It took me a long time to figure out what worked and what didn’t work, but you don’t have to do it the hard way like I did… I created a course that will teach you what you really need to know to create effective ads to turn your used items into cold, hard cash.

Selling used items online is different from selling face to face because your Ad is the only information potential buyers have when it comes to purchasing decisions. The Ad you show them can work for you or against you. I designed this course to help you create more effective Ads that get attention and results. Each section will focus on one key area and I break it down into everyday language to help you better understand why it is so important, and how you can easily implement those lessons into your own selling efforts.

Topics covered include:

  • The importance of proper images
  • How to take better pictures regardless of what camera you are using.
  • How to price your item correctly so you don’t miss a sales opportunity.
  • How to generate more traffic to your Ad without spending any money.
  • How to write emotional description that appeal to the buyer’s various senses to increase your chances of landing the sale.
  • How to generate more traffic to your ad without spending any money.

You’ll learn all that plus other tips, techniques and best practices!

BONUS: Included with this course are my two guides: Selling Online, a Reality Checklist and Writing Descriptions that Sell.
