During the day we would go to the local batting cage where I would throw him pitches until my arm was about to fall off. Then back home to the barn where we would hit the ball off a batting tee.
Many times after Little League games we would go home and practice till midnight. We got his batting mechanics perfect, we got his pitching mechanics perfect. He can now throw strikes blindfolded.
It sure didn't start out that way. We worked through failure after failure and a lot of discouragement. But as you can see, our persistence has paid off big time for him.
We constantly worked on the mental aspect of the game. He knows how to set up hitters, pitch to their weaknesses and most importantly forget the bad events that happen during a game and go on with what he wants to get done.
Becoming a successful online marketer is really no different than what I've just outlined.
If you want to be an All Star marketer, you simply need to have the desire, practice your art, get your marketing mechanics down pat, learn from your failures, and never give in to those discouraging events that we all face.

Read This: if you have a listing on a pay per click search engine
Many of the smaller Pay-Per-Click search engines don't
What that means is, instead of putting in a line of
text for the heading of your listing, by substituting a special line of code; a pop-up window will appear every time a user searches for one of your keywords.
In other words, if I have a keyword "advertising" and
spend the money to get a first place listing, any unsavory person who knows how to use this code can bid on the lowest position on the page, yet when "advertising" is searched, that person's listing will become the first site seen.
Here's what happens:
If you have a listing on a PPC engine, go do a search
and make sure this event isn't happening and taking traffic away from your listing. If you find this occurring, immediately write support at the engine and complain as loudly as you can!
There are currently 130 PPC engines. If you have a
listing on GoTo, it is not affected by this coding trick.
Check your listings every few days, the code will soon
become common knowledge. Even though I have a few PPC listings, I refuse to use this unethical tactic and strongly suggest you follow suit.
As it becomes more well known the PPC engines will
ban any person found to be using this, so keep your listings clean.

All That Glitters....Is Gold
The U.S. dollar is losing strength. That's good news for
anyone invested in a gold mutual fund. Gold usually moves in the opposite direction to dollar strength.
As the stock markets continue their downward ride,
investor's like to buy gold as a traditional "hedge" against it.
Although there has been a shortage of gold mined in the
past several years, central banks have been selling their stock piles moving assets from gold to dollars. Now as interest rates are coming down, the banks will have less incentive to sell gold.
Demand for gold is very high and supply is drying up
rapidly. There has been little incentive for mining companies to further exploration and profits have been low on mining. India, Greece, and Japan are currently the world's major
buyers of gold.
Buying into the right gold fund now could mean a very
nice return on your investment if the dollar continues to show weakness.
The September gold futures on the New York Commodities
Exchange Center closed at 274.40 Friday. Speculators believe the price of gold will rise to 300 and possibly 400 over the next 3 years.
If you would like an experienced investor to help you
in choosing a gold or stock fund to suit your investment strategies, please write me for a free consultation.
We are currently getting returns of 15 to 32% on several of the funds we are invested in. Why put your money in a bank returning less than 3 % interest when you can invest in a high return vehicle.
We have a special Web site for anyone interested in
learning more about how Mutual Funds can benefit you.

The Good Guys Wear White Hats
Last Monday Floorz.com closed it's Web site for good and
filed for bankruptcy. Two weeks ago Beenz.com's site shut down for good. There were 21 dot-com failures in August.
Since January 1, 2001, there have been 248 dot-com
firms that have closed and 87,795 jobs have been eliminated in the process.
First, as an online marketer, that's 87,795 people out there looking for what you have to offer!
One of the highest trafficked sites on the Net, Amazon.com
has yet to show a profit. Every single month, their expenses are more than their income.
We are exceptionally pleased to announce that in August,
ChooseToProsper.com went out of the red and into the black, revenues exceeded expenses. Hurray!
While we are not ready to offer stock options, , we
are able to show a profit. ChooseToProsper.com has zero debt and returns 20% of all revenues into the furthering of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Without our loyal readers, good friends, and excellent
tech team, this would not have been possible, so we extend a very warm and hearty Thank You to each and every one.
