Welcome to my updated personal blog
Hello, My name is Anthony welcome to my business and investing blog. Here I will post investment ideas, tricks, tips, experiences, insights, and more so we can learn from each other. The goal is the same, get rich, and if we form a “mastermind group” sharing our experiences we can move up the income ladder faster.
I will really be diving into new wave thinking and sharing my new experiences and thoughts. I have really been involved with law of attraction as of late and had much success, so I will look forward to writing about my take and experiences in future blogs.
If you have areas of interest or pending subjects you would like to chat about, feel free to contact me or post your thoughts in the comment sections. I get them all and will read them. This blog is going to mainly feature posts on subjects that I find most important. I want to warn you now though, they will be all over the place! My mind is usually pretty scattered so I tend to write on many different subjects. For instance, right now I have been really into manifesting my dreams through products like “The Secret” and other self help materials. You can only listen to Tony Robbins for so long after you get his message and want to move on. After that I began studying how to make lots of money as fast as possible. I studied real estate, stock investing, internet companies, franchising, direct sales, and so many more. For a while I worked with Amway and had pretty good results, but in the end I decided I didn’t like the direct sales approach. I closed my business and began searching for others ways to make money. I started researching email and listing building techniques and purchased some courses on that. This strategy involves creating opt-in pages and attempting to collect niche specific email addresses. By giving you their address people “opt-in” to your email auto responder system. This is usually a series of 10-50 emails that give them valuable information while also attempting to sell them on affiliate products. This strategy works best with the affiliate links from companies like ClickBank and others.
The other business idea I had was a iPhone repair business. Usually I go for passive income, but I figure this could be quick cash that would come in handy right now. The theory here is I would simply buy extra screens, buttons, and other parts for iPhones. Then when people drop their iPhone on the ground instead of buying a new one I would be able to repair it for them for $40-$60 dollars. I could set up a website, Facebook, get business cards, and set up a logo on my car to attract customers. This idea would be quick cash, but in the end seemed like more work then it was worth. Having employee’s would be challenging because it would be hard to train someone on how to fix an phone. Also, if your employee messed up a customers phone you would be out the money.
The idea I finally decided to go with is a health food e-commerce online store. Yeah I know what your thinking, you can never compete with Amazon. Well that might be true but I don’t need a lot of customers for health products. Since most of the items I would sell are higher quality with large profit margins, I would only need to sell a few items. The other great thing about supplements is they are a niche market that has less competition then most. I have noticed lately that more people are getting involved in eating organic and non-gmo so this could be a good growth market to get involved in.
I hope you enjoyed reading about all the business ventures as of late. I’m always searching for new ways to make money and eventually have 100% passive income. This way I can travel the world and not have to worry about a 9-5 job. I would also be interested in hearing about your money making schemes. Leave your ideas in the comments below and we can get a discussion going. Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you find some of this information valuable. -Anthony
Top 5 Productivity Tools to Make You More Money
I just watched a great video on the Top 5 productivity tools. My biggest issue working online is getting distracted. I’m currently working from home and it’s hard not to get caught up in the distractions going on around me. I’ve learned it’s easier for me to work at coffee shops and other quiet study labs because then I can focus on making more money. Pat Flynn is a master of making passive income online and he made this great video breaking down his top 5 productivity tools. Of course you don’t need these to be effective, but any edge you can get will help. Enjoy the video!
The Best Way to Use the Law of Attraction to Make Millions
A friend of mine turned me on to Bob Proctor the other day and I’m happy he did. If you haven’t heard of Bob he’s basically a believer and pusher of the Law of Attraction. He focuses his teacher on training students how to change their brain to attract the riches they desire. Now I know this sounds crazy but hear me out first. He claims there are universal laws that if you follow them you will get your desired results. At first I found this hard to believe but the more I use his methods the more results I see. My favorite quote of Bob Proctor is, “I’m so happy and grateful that money comes to me in increasing quantities from multiple sources on a continuous basis.” He calls that an affirmation and your supposed to repeat that multiple times daily with emotion behind it for best results. Check out the video and tell me what you think.
Do you believe that you can use the Law of Attraction to make millions? What if you can? Where do you learn more like I did? These are all great questions! You can go about it multiple different ways, search youtube, watch endless videos. My friend that turned me on is actually a Bob Proctor student and coach now. I feel I owe him a thank you for turning me on to Bob. His site is http://www.lawofattractioncoaching.net and there are lots of free and paid coaching options to learn more. Or you can save time and see some of his videos posted on his law of attraction youtube channel. Either way, they are some great options to help you get started on your path to manifesting more abundance in your life today.

What is the Best Way to Rank Your Website in Google
The question a lot of web masters have is, “what is the best way to rank my website in Google?” In this post I will explain some of the strategies I use to build and rank my webpages in the google search engine. So let’s start at the beginning. There are many different sites out there to build web pages with. Some of my favorite web design platforms are Weebly, WordPress, Bravenet, and Wix. The first step is to pick your platform and then build out your page with text, pictures, videos, and keywords inserted correctly. This deserves a blog in itself, but I will give you the basics here. Make sure you add content and tag keywords in your pictures, pages, and fill out your general website description. Now, you have built your webpage and your ready for traffic.
The first step is to set up your social networks. I usually start with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and then Youtube, and after a day or so you can add Pinterest and Vimeo. There is much debate in the web development worlds on whether you need to be active on social networks or not. My theory on this is it will help you to have active followers, but you don’t need follows. If you have an important company or brand then it’s best to post 2-5 times per week and engage your followers, but this is not required to rank your page. It is still important to make the social accounts though because each social platform gives you the ability to link back to your main page. This link will be coming from a trusted source such as Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter which will help your page rank better. I would not by followers or views because it’s important to have niche based followers which can only be built naturally.
The next step to ranking your webpage in the big search engines is to fill out your Google Business Listing. If your a local business then you can add your address and be geo located on the map which is very powerful. If your not a local business filling our your listing will still help because it shows the search engines that your a legitimate company. To do this you first need a Gmail account. Once you’ve signed up you can go to Google+ and start your page. Once you have a Google+ page you can now click on the arrow to the left and scroll down to Pages. From there start a new business page and fill out all your information. Make sure you add your name, phone number, address, hours of operation, and photos. Once you have done this Google will ask you to verify your listing. It takes 1-2 weeks to get your card in the mail, and once you receive it you need to add this verification code to your listing to be officially verified. At this point your Google Business Page is now complete. Now you just need customers reviews so your listing looks better than your competition.
So far we have created a webpage, added relevant content, added social networks, create your business listing, and now your ready for backlinks. Back linking is essentially links from sites that direct into your website. A good place to start gathering links is from Web 2.0 sites. These are sites like WordPress, Weebly, Tumblr, and Bravenet. Essentially these websites for free will let you build out content onto their domain name. Then take these blogs you have written on Web 2.0’s and embed your videos, pictures, and create anchor text links back to your online assets. Remember, you don’t want build a wordpress page and host it on your own .com site. Instead you want to build a WordPress page and keep it hosted on their domain. For instance, if you wanted to make a blog about web hosting in Oregon, then your domain name would be WebHostingOregon.Wordpress.com. Then if you link this new page to your money site your getting the DA from WordPress.com passed through to you, which in turn will help you rank in search engines.
Now you have a brief summary on how to rank in Google with search engine optimization. If your competing for local or weak keywords then this alone will allow you to rank on the first page. If your niche is more competitive your going to need even more SEO tricks and tips. For this I would advise hooking up with a quality SEO Company in the city your located in. I use a firm here in Portland named Oregon Web Solutions here is their website http://www.oregonwebsolutions.com/portland-seo-company/
If reading is not your expertise you can always watch the Portland SEO Video they put together that explains their Google ranking services in great detail. I hope this search engine marketing advice was of help to you. It seems complex but like they say, the best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time. So start with your social networks, then business listing, then point some web 2.0’s at your main site. If this doesn’t work it’s time to hire a good search engine optimization company.
