I went home this Christmas for 10 days to be with my wife and the family. I spent as much time as I could with her. We got to see each other every morning when we woke up and every night when we went to sleep. Of course I’d be up watching t.v. or a movie after she falls asleep. She tries her best to stay up and watch with me but she’s usually out in less than 5 minutes.
Our first night out in town.
On the second night, I took her out to the Reunion Tower and ate at the Antares Restaurant. The restaurant is located a few hundred feet above the ground and rotates in a circular path. We would get a full 360 degree view of everything outside in approximately every 45 minutes.
Before getting there, I was joking around saying that we should leave an hour early so we can spare half an hour to get lost. Ironically, we did. We got lost for exactly half an hour and then finally made it just 5 minutes before our reservation. Because it is winter time, 6PM just isn’t early enough to see the sun set. Heck, they don’t even open ’til then anyway.
The meal had cost us about $100. Not too shabby for such a nice place. I had the sea bass while she had some Thai something shrimp. I can’t remember the name. It was really hard to pronounce. They were both delicious though. I recommend if you ever stop by Dallas, Texas to go on up there. It’s the tower with the ball at the top.
I am now looking toward 2007. One of the biggest year of my life.
I will soon be launching FAN, returning to the States for good, permanently be with my wife, start on my secret project, meeting people at seminars and even speaking on stage and I’ll probably more than likely have a baby. We both really want one. Especially after seeing our nephew, Sean. He’s just so cute you want to hold on to him forever.
Sure I might have my plate full and I’m trying to take on too many things. But that’s just who I am. The way I see it, the bigger my goals and dreams, the more I get out of it.
Some people are afraid to set their goals really high.
I’m not because even if I don’t meet that goal, I would have at least gotten close and achieve more than I started out with. I went from no list, to a list of over 2,000. I went from 2 forum members (me and my wife) to over 650 members. I went from ground floor to making a few extra thousand dollars. while I was at sea for 7 months this year.
Out of it, I got my Plane Captain qualifications, which allows me to launch, recover and maintain an F-18 Hornet. I’ve gone to Thailand, Singapore, Korea, Guam, Northern Japan and Australia. I also advanced to Petty Officer third class. I’ve received letter of appreciations and commendations for my work performance. I’ve also gotten two outstanding performance awards on my PFA (Physical Fitness Assessment).
I’m already dreaming up my life for 2007.
I can see myself buying back my military contract so I could live my life with my family. I see my business reaching out to millions of people all across the world. I can see myself driving the car of my dream, which is a Porsche 911 GT2. Although it may not be practical for everyday use, it sure will be a lot of fun on the weekends!
On the contrary, I see myself in an SUV taking my wife to the hospital to deliver our baby. I don’t know it yet, but I have a feeling she’s pregnant. *crossing fingers* cjnmcjnfjkj ajjn lak kfld n… okay, it’s hard to type like that, but you get the point.
I don’t consider myself an Internet marketing junkie.
But I do consider myself an Internet marketing fanatic. I love to do it and work with people who do it. I love to come up with new ways to drive more traffic to my website and keeping them there. I love to help others grasp the same concept and apply it themselves.
It’s no danger or harm to myself for helping others. I feel happy helping people. It’s my nature. It’s just me.
I’m seriously excited about FairAdsNetwork.com.
Looking over it’s capabilities, I know it will do more than give Google AdSense/AdWords and YPN a run for their money. We’ll even run away with their money – legitimately and legally. We’ll win the hearts of millions and convince them that their PPC and keyword relevancy venture days are over. It’s just way too costly to the advertiser and way too little for the publishers to profit.
Networker’s Debut will also soon get a face lift for the new year.
I will be including a few additions for the new year. First up is a whole new newsletter system. I’m tired of using another server where I am limited to doing what I want the way I want it.
I’ll also be adding a news publishing system to help reflect the key objective of Networker’s Debut, which is to get you the latest and up-to-date news on Internet marketing.
Last, but not least important, is a traffic tracker that will allow me to see how many hits I really am getting, what country they are coming from, what time of day, what type of browser they are using, how long were they on my site and so much more. I want to use this data and analyze it to determine the best ways to keep the visitors coming and staying.
All great things start out as an idea.
I mentioned something about a secret project I’ll be working on soon. Can I give you a hint?
It has to do with ebooks, but it’s NOT an ebook. It will be free for all, but it’s not a classifieds site. Anyone can join, as long as they speak and understand English. It will be consisted of a huge community, but it’s not a forum. It’s been done before, but not ANYTHING like this. My product line will be unlimited, but it won’t be me producing them.
At this point, you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about… uhh, I can’t tell ya. You’ll just have to stay tuned and find out. I’ll tell you this though. The idea was sparked after reading a book called “The Long Tail” written by Chris Anderson, who is the editor in chief at Wired Magazine.
The secret project will be using the Long Tail Theory and combine the concept of Amazon and Wikipedia all in one. Like I said, 2007 is going to be a really big year and I can’t wait to see the things we accomplish together.
