Don’t Quit in the Dip

Have you given up on something? Already failed your New Year’s Resolutions? You probably quit in the “dip” (the worst possible time to quit, because you’re so close to breaking through).

Seth Godin’s WordPress Blog is Live!

Mastermind marketer Seth Godin’s new WordPress blog went live this month and as such I thought it would be a great opportunity to stay on top of everything he’s posting – and more importantly stay on top of all the latest marketing trends and insights as they are constantly changing.

The Best Way to Safely Capture Credit Card Details Online

If you’re a freelancer or run a small business and are looking to capture credit card details online, there are tons of resources out there to help you do this. The two best inexpensive resources I use (and my clients use) are Stripe and Formstack.

In today’s video lets dig into both Stripe and Formstack and learn about how and when to use each of them.
