THE SMARTEST SMOOCHER IN TOWN

THE SMARTEST SMOOCHER IN TOWN by Joseph Tom Riach

Sam wasn’t a good looking lad, not by any stretch. His features were more car crash than Cruise, his physique more crisis than Christiano. In terms of intellect he was not only not at the races, he got lost on his way from the stables. And in the electric personality stakes he finished plumb last, a couple of A3s short of a torch beam. So what was it about him that made him irresistable to members of the opposite sex? Just what made him the smartest smoocher in town?

To say that this question persistantly perplexed his teenage contemporaries of the time (myself included) is indeed an understatement. We just could not understand his success with the ‘birds’ and, as time passed, his never ceasing and rapidly accumulating tally of conquests only instilled in us more and more confusion … and resentment!

But when confronted and had ‘the question’ aggressively put to him (in terms less than complimentary) it quickly became obvious that he had not the slightest idea of what we were talking about. He was oblivious to the fact that he was cornering the market in amerous encounters like a De Beers diamond dealer and certainly had no cleverly conceived strategy which he deployed. Only at the point of imminent physical assault did he desperately stammer,

“Look guys, all I do is ask!”

“What do you mean you ask?”

“Well … er … just that. I ask for what I want.”

next column …

“You mean you just come straight out and ask a girl for … ‘what you want’?”

Much guffawing from the gang … followed by,

“I’ll bet you get a heck a lot of slaps on the face!”

Knowing smiles and nods of agreement … ‘until …

“Yes, I do. But I get a lot of ‘what I want’ too!”

Sam you see may have lacked physical appeal or personal charisma but he possessed an inherent talent infinitely more powerful (and more powerful again because he was ignorant he possessed it)! … Sam was smart. He accepted that there would be slap downs but understood that life delivers just what you ask of it, no more no less.

Do you have it in you to be the smartest smoocher in town?

THE SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS

Meet me at my Author Page – just click the banner!

THE SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS by Joseph Tom Riach

In my early teens, my form teacher at school, exasperated beyond reason by my notoriously errant behaviour, prophetically declared to me, “One night you’ll be taken down a dark lane and given a good beating!” He would soon be proved right … both actually and figuratively.

I never sought sense. Neither indeed wisdom. The crumbs of each which have come my way were delivered rather than ordered. Many by way of blows.

Life’s daily barrage of straight lefts taught me caution and respect, the hooks and crosses tolerance. Humility came courtesy of the jarring uppercut of failure. With it I learned to take life on the chin. Then there were the body blows. The sickening mid-riff thuds of family deaths, loved ones gone, no redemption.

Yet I learned to hang on when hurt, bob and weave when pressured, deliver a low blow when desperate. I was saved by the bell more often than I deserved but was carried unconscious from the ring too.

At those times I was brought back from the edge, revived and restored by improbable allies. Friends and colleagues oft neglected, mysterious strangers, angels of mercy. And the simple hand of friendship proffered by well-wishers more worthy by far than I.

next column …

Each time I recovered, I came back stronger than before – my resolve undiminished. Enhanced in fact through the unconditional support of those who nursed me through the hard times. I learned that with pain comes gain. For that reason I’ll be in the ring again today … and tomorrow … and the day after.

You see I have an obligation to my schools. Both the one of my teen years and the other which no-one applies to attend but where all are accepted and awarded lifetime scholarships. In this latter school pupils get kicked around a lot, get sense knocked into them. Graduation may take place down a dark lane.

But it’s the best school in the world. It’s the school of hard knocks!

THE ROAD TO JOYFUL LIVING! 

How to Make A Smile Your Calling Card and Live A Life of PURE JOY!    

   A NEW YEAR – A NEW ROAD!

WHAT is self-improvement? WHY work at it?

I have spent a lifetime addressing just those questions. First from the perspective of my business and commercial activities, then in my personal life too. 

   I realised early on in fact, that the principles and practices of successful living apply equally in both personal and entrepreneurial pursuits. Get it right in one and you’ve got the winning formula for the other. Create a happy life for yourself and you’re well placed to help others to create happy lives too. Lives based on the simple principles of free thought and the power of self-determination which I myself practice. 

   It is these characteristics which I emphasise in vivid fashion in my latest book in my ‘successful living’ series. 

   In The Road To Joyful Living, I set out to encourage, inspire and amuse you with my gloriously original views on self-improvement. With my trademark blend of real life experiences, professional insights, personal views and fun stories, I identify exactly why and how personal development will work for you! 

   But the book is more than just another guide to the principles and practices of self-improvement. It is quite different. Exceptional in fact. Why? 

   As an entrepreneur, I do not deal in theory. I’ve been involved in a host of trade sectors, an encyclopedia of different enterprises and just about every self-employed situation imaginable. These experiences brought me into close and personal relationships as an adviser and confidant. I saw first hand how decisions and strategies relative to people’s businesses impacted on their personal lives and vice versa. I learned that clients valued my input as much, or more so, for how it would influence their personal lives and relationships as for the commercial considerations. They valued my integrity and sought my counsel on that basis.

It is these experiences of helping people to live at greater peace with themselves and in harmony with the world which lie at the heart of The Road To Joyful Living– and inspired me to write it. 

   As I write with the authority of one who has ‘been there, seen it, done it’, I know that bettering yourself should, first and foremost, be an enjoyable endeavour. I assert that it makes simple sense to make fun and enjoyment central to your existence; not a peripheral experience to fit in occasionally or when other demands permit. I insist therefore that you be generous and have fun while working to improve yourself! I urge you to do just that, every minute of every day and in everything you do! 

   My motto is to, “Live life, laugh and love!” – and become a better person as a result. The Road To Joyful Living shows you how.  

   This is a serious book of course but I’ve made it an entertaining and fun read too. I believe that you’ll love it. I’ve been told that there’s no other book on the subject comes close to matching my unique take on life. As D.M. (full name available) of San Antonio, Texas enthuses – “ … as good, or better, than any of the books I have read by the so called ‘masters’ of personal development and success books/training.”

Affiliate Marketer Mistakes

There are many affiliate marketers who use a direct link to a sales page, without even disguising their affiliate link otherwise known as cloaking

While using direct links is allowed on traffic exchanges and other traffic sites. it’s doubtful they will gain affiliate commission payments using this method

While you can find sites that provide a tool to shrink and hide ugly affiliated links, what is really needed is a bridge page or capture page where you can offer a Free gift, the page allows you to build a mailing list

I know that many affiliated marketers don’t have access to tools or knowledge to able to create any pages, but there is a way around this problem

By writing a unique article and not copying from anywhere else for the best results

Within your article can add your affiliated link hidden within the contents and make it a click enabled link

Another alternative for those who are poor at writing, videos can be used to replace articles (posts)

This will require posting regularly uploaded videos on YouTube and inserting you shorter link in the description

Whichever method your use you will also need items of interest to attract visitors to your blog, to stand any chance of anyone clicking on affiliated links

Make use of affiliated banners which will have your affiliated encoded

Free hosted WordPress, may not allow the use of HTML code

You can get around that problem, by uploading the banner image, and highlighting and adding your link

Here is an example of hiding links Click Here

The Truth About Working at Home

People assume that working from home is for lazy people because they think it is easy!

Allow me to start with the rose-tinted version first.

You get to choose your own hours of working.

You can wake up at a decent hour of the morning or stay up at night working in peace.

You get to be in your pyjamas if you want to and you can snack as much as you want

Not to mention that you do not have to deal with gossip, water cooler conversations, awkward communication with others including the strangely uptight boss.

Peace and quiet are a boon to home working productivity

Keep in contact with your co-workers, colleagues and associates via Skype, phone, or even instant message.

Going out for a bite to eat or hitting a networking event now and again will get you in front of other humans, too.”

Working at Home

You are on your own!

Here are a whole lot of negatives that come with working at home in the solo role

I have stumbled upon some people who do not set up any hours at all.

They work as soon as work manifests itself, which is a huge negative aspect of the job.

Being on your own can also suck because you are…on your own. Totally on your own!

There will be no one is there to help you file reports if you do not know how to file.

No one is there to help you work extra hours in the “office.”

There is no camaraderie. Yes, you may actually miss those workmates you were eager to get away from.

Working from home can be isolating at times.

It really is a lonely profession.

It is nice to have peace and quiet, but too much peace and quiet might just drive you insane. Sometimes, I find myself talking to myself to make noise in the otherwise empty of people space

Actually, I’m able to my kind of play music whenever I chose, which is awesome (okay, let us chalk up another one for the advantages column).

Finally, there is no technical support. I cannot even begin to explain the frustrations of technology failing me. “Let’s face it: Computers and technology sometimes don’t work the way we want

At the office, you’re likely to have an in-house IT person at your service.

That’s not the case when working from home so your machines may take longer to be fixed than you would like”

Working from home at the very least becomes a new JOB or perhaps a new Business which may add more negatives to the list

SO YOU WANT TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?

Meet me at my Author Page – just click the banner!

So you want to be a millionaire? Not unusual, many people harbour such a desire. Few however achieve their ambition. Most never get their dream beyond the realms of a fluffy fancy breezing around in their mind. In short they don’t … One : Evolve a concrete plan andTwo : They don’t write down their plan and Three : They don’t act on the plan.

But wait … there’s a FOURTH infinitely bigger obstacle which blocks the way of those seeking millionaire status. Worse than having no clear idea of where to start, they are blind to one simple, yet critical factor. A reality essential to any aspiring millionaire but so obvious that it totally escapes their attention. What is it that they so spectacularly fail to see? It’s this –

$1m is One Million ONE Dollars!!

You want to be a millionaire? Then don’t think millions. Think One Single Dollar. It’s only by knowing how to make $1 that you can accumulate great wealth. Put it this way – If you can’t make just $1, how on earth do you expect to make millions of them? No chance! But, when you know how to make $1 then there is no limit to how often you can repeat the trick. Remember –

$1m is One Million ONE Dollars!!

Let’s make that first dollar.

Find a solitary location with table and chair, quiet with no distractions. Put $1 on the table. Also a pen, a blank sheet of paper and a timer. Set the timer to 1 hour. Begin.

Draw a line down the middle of the paper, thus creating two equal columns. In the left hand column write how much money you intend to make (financial target), then how long you are giving yourself to reach the target (time limit). Eg $1m and 5 years.

next column …

Now, concentrate your gaze on the $1. As you do, think of and picture ways you can realistically turn that $1 into $2. As the ideas flood from your imagination, list them in the right hand column on your sheet of paper. Write down as many ways as possible to make just $1. When your timer sounds at the end of 1 hour – stop!

Select your favourite way to make $1 from the list you’ve created, then immediately go out and put the strategy into practice – ACT NOW!

As soon as you have made that first $1, repeat the process. This time create $2 – either by $1 + $1 twice or by $2 into $4. Continue like this until your financial target is met – simple!

Pin your list in a prominent position where you will see it and be motivated by it each day. Use other strategies from your list as and when you consider it desireable. Add others as you think of them too.

Keep at it until you reach your goal. Determination and perseverance are all important.

So you want to be a millionaire? Then say, “Yes!” to One Million ONE Dollars!! It really is that simple.

ONE SHIRT AT A TIME

Meet me at my Author Page – just click the banner!

ONE SHIRT AT A TIME by Joseph Tom Riach

The clothes in my wardrobe (often on the floor) fall into three categories :

My very few ‘Good Clothes’ are new-ish and saved for wear only on special occasions – dining with the Queen and such like. In time they are demoted to –

My ‘Every Day Clothes’, which may lack the sheen of new but are smart, respectable and comfortable. Only after some considerable time (years mostly) are they relegated to –

My ‘Scruffy Clothes’. These I wear for lounging around the house, messing in the yard, hiking and climbing in the mountains, doing exercises and training sessions. (I am it seems something of an oddity nowadays in that I hike, jog or cycle to feel good for me rather than to show off expensive designer apparel for others)!

Only when a scruffy piece of clothing becomes reduced to a series of inter-connected holes do I discard it. At this point I demote a garment from my every day clothes to replace the scruffy item deceased and I remove an item from my good clothes to replace that one. This leaves a vacancy in my good clothes department which I may replace (note the word ‘may’) with a new purchase … but only on offer of course!

This clothes management system which I employ is testament to my Scottish and Presbyterian upbringing. Each imbued great thriftiness … but my family were not very well off anyway. Clothes were replaced only on the inter-connected holes basis described and I went through many winters with newspaper stuffed into shoes with completely worn-through soles.

next column …

But the benefit of all that is that I learned to spend, and throughout adulthood have spent, only a fraction of the money on clothes which many people do. Yet I am perfectly able to be well dressed and maintain a smart appearance. I even shower, shave and comb my hair when I don’t have to!

My system is also eco-friendly (no waste), charitable (not supporting far east sweat shops) and it’s sensible. For anyone unfamiliar with the word ‘sensible’, it’s what existed prior to ‘woke’. The demise of the first coinciding with, nay being created by, the rise of the second … but I diverge …

The money I save by not being a clothes mad shopaholic, I invest in business opportunities and ways of making money rather than ‘blowing’ it. So with my thrift I become better off and, some would say, thus better able to afford to buy more ‘stuff’, more clothes even! But no, I’m very attached to my proven and effective clothes management system.

After all, as was told me in my youth by a highly successful entrepreneur – “Regardless of wealth … you can only wear one shirt at a time!” Think about it.
