Do You Have A Money Room?

I’d like to ask you a very important question.

Do you have a designated “Money Room”?

Okay, let me explain.

A Money Room is a place where you go to be creative, work and bring in the moolah. Before I move into any new home I always ask myself… “Where is the Money Room?”

Last week I once again moved into a new home. I know, I know, it feels like my 236th move in the last two years.  It’s a stunning home built on the golf course in the cute little surf town of Encinitas just north of San Diego. I actually left the oceanfront in La Jolla to share this dream home with my beautiful new fiancé Andrea. We have big hopes and dreams for this place.

Anyhow, when we were shopping for a new home I was very persistent about having a cozy room that was conducive to making money. Without it, there is no way I could justify the astronomical rent.

So, whether you live in a Bel Air mansion or a Tallahassee trailer park, it’s essential that you have a place you can go to make your money. Your money room doesn’t have to be an elaborate and expensive place, it just needs to be a place that will inspire you and put you in the mood to start cranking out the loot cakes.

One quick tip is you can decorate your desk with a Money Tree as seen here. Hey, it’s worth a try.

Cheers,

Jason

PS: Here’s the new Money Room. It’s yet to be broken in and needs some decoration, but I think it’s a nice start.

How To Fast Forward Video Without Controls

Okay, this may totally amount to internet marketing cock-blocking, but I had to do it. So many people have voiced frustrations with this so I thought I’d help y’all out.

Over the last couple years I’ve heard one complaint more so than just about anything else in internet marketing, and that is frustration with videos that have no controls. These videos will not allow you to fast forward, or rewind, and don’t even think about hitting the refresh button or clicking anything on the page or you’ll have to start the entire video all over from the beginning.

Now there is a reason why these type of videos have become so common place. The bottom line is they work. People have preconceived notions all the time, and if you don’t force someone to sit through the set up of a video sales letter, it’s very unlikely that they will be interested in your product or service if they are allowed to see the price tag right away. Therefore it’s a clever tactic, it’s just a bit annoying.

However, I’m super impatient. While I understand why the marketers do this, I too just want to see the bottom line. Show me the pitch already. So, if you are anything like me, I think you’ll really dig this tip on how to fast forward videos without controls and watch them at your own pace.

You’ll need a free tool called the Free Wimpy Desktop FLV Player. You can pick it up for free by clicking here.

It works for Mac and PC and they don’t require you to opt in or anything. For instructions on how to fast forward the videos without controls, watch the video below.

Oh, quick side note…

When filming this video I just randomly picked this particular video to use as an example. I had no idea I’d get hammered with 11 (yes I said eleven) exit pops. It’s pretty comical. Please excuse the foul language.

Feel free to share this video with anyone you think it may help out.

Cheers,

Jason

PS: In the comments below you’ll see quite a few people have suggested various Firefox plug ins or other tools that will allow you to do the same thing. Also, keep in mind that not all videos are .flv files. Some may be .mov, .mp4, .wmv, .m4v, etc etc.

Thanks folks.
