This great speaker slash trainer, wants to offer my real estate websites as a part of their real estate training… and quitereal estate websites sincerely I am faltered.

To present my products to the real estate agents that they work with they have asked me to create a logo of sorts to place on their website. So I did a quick search on the web to see what it would cost and how long the turn around time would be. The cost was not much – $5.00 to $20.00 and the time to create would be 2 to 5 days.

I then thought about tackling this little project myself, after all I to like these little creative techy challenges. As well I thought it might be a good story to share. It took me about an hour to crate this logo, remember this was my first attempt. I think with a little experience this time could be whittled down to 20 minutes. I would have had to spend at least an hour working with the design person anyway.

What I did was look around the net for some Royalty Free images. This is fairly easy,  just Google royalty free images or the keywords that you are focusing on and you will find plenty of images to choose from.

Then drag or download the image to your desktop and you will have what will become your background.

I use a great little piece of software called Snaggit and with this software you can do screen captures and with the built in tools add text. Once you have added your text you will save you work to your desktop. Voila, you are done.

If you are shrinking your image as I needed to do do for the purposes as adding it to a product page on a website.  You will need to save it so that your text will stay  in the order it was set up before you do your resizing. After the image has been saved to your desktop you will need to do another screen capture of your saved work and then you can resize the image to the required pixel size. In my case it was 150 x 150.

THIS IS A GREAT STORY ON PERCEIVED VALUE

Posted by James Osmar | Posted in Random | Posted on 19-02-2012

A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that 1,100 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.

Three minutes went by, and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace, and stopped for a few seconds, and then hurried up to meet his schedule.

A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping, and continued to walk.

A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally, the mother pushed hard, and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the most talented musicians in the world. He had just played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million dollars.

Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.

This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste, and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?

One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?

Prospecting With VideoI have just downloaded a very interesting video editing software call ViVideo, it was only $23.99 after an emailed 40% discount. The attached link will save you $16.00. Because I was emailed the special discount link and it is not posted on the site, I have included it here.Check it out...

FREE TRIAL http://www.wondershare.com/multimedia-software/

MAC DISCOUNT https://usd.swreg.org/com/shop/46637/cart/2702288701

PC DISCOUNT https://usd.swreg.org/com/shop/46637/cart/2702288701

You might ask why I would post this... That's easy, the software is simple and easy to use, the thing that I like most is that it works on both a Mac and a PC, and I love my MAC.

However, because most people have a PC it makes it hard to teach people how to do special things with video if they do to have the same software. And I don't mind teaching, if the student gets a benefit.

I do not know how long the discount is on for, but at $23.99 just do it!

Oh, and one last thing, I'm not making a penny on this...

In 1984 Steve Jobs went against his board of directors and ran this ad. More that 96 million people watched the ad, it was unlike any they had ever seen before. In a pre YouTube era it was picked up buy all three major networks and 50 stations aired news stories about it. It was eventually selected by TV Guide and Advertising Age as the greatest commercial of all time.

Imagine his multi-million dollar board of directors said not to run it, they even wanted to fire the company that created it.

Steve Jobs and the 7 Rules of Success

Posted by James Osmar | Posted in Random | Posted on 17-10-2011

Steve Jobs' impact on your life cannot be underestimated. His innovations have likely touched nearly every aspect -- computers, movies, music and mobile. As a communications coach, I learned from Jobs that a presentation can, indeed, inspire. For entrepreneurs, Jobs' greatest legacy is the set of principles that drove his success.

Over the years, I've become a student of sorts of Jobs' career and life. Here's my take on the rules and values underpinning his success. Any of us can adopt them to unleash our "inner Steve Jobs."

1. Do what you love. Jobs once said, "People with passion can change the world for the better." Asked about the advice he would offer would-be entrepreneurs, he said, "I'd get a job as a busboy or something until I figured out what I was really passionate about." That's how much it meant to him. Passion is everything.

2. Put a dent in the universe. Jobs believed in the power of vision. He once asked then-Pepsi President, John Sculley, "Do you want to spend your life selling sugar water or do you want to change the world?" Don't lose sight of the big vision.

3. Make connections. Jobs once said creativity is connecting things. He meant that people with a broad set of life experiences can often see things that others miss. He took calligraphy classes that didn't have any practical use in his life -- until he built the Macintosh. Jobs traveled to India and Asia. He studied design and hospitality. Don't live in a bubble. Connect ideas from different fields.

4. Say no to 1,000 things. Jobs was as proud of what Apple chose not to do as he was of what Apple did. When he returned in Apple in 1997, he took a company with 350 products and reduced them to 10 products in a two-year period. Why? So he could put the "A-Team" on each product. What are you saying "no" to?

5. Create insanely different experiences. Jobs also sought innovation in the customer-service experience. When he first came up with the concept for the Apple Stores, he said they would be different because instead of just moving boxes, the stores would enrich lives. Everything about the experience you have when you walk into an Apple store is intended to enrich your life and to create an emotional connection between you and the Apple brand. What are you doing to enrich the lives of your customers?

6. Master the message. You can have the greatest idea in the world, but if you can't communicate your ideas, it doesn't matter. Jobs was the world's greatest corporate storyteller. Instead of simply delivering a presentation like most people do, he informed, he educated, he inspired and he entertained, all in one presentation.

7. Sell dreams, not products. Jobs captured our imagination because he really understood his customer. He knew that tablets would not capture our imaginations if they were too complicated. The result? One button on the front of an iPad. It's so simple, a 2-year-old can use it. Your customers don't care about your product. They care about themselves, their hopes, their ambitions. Jobs taught us that if you help your customers reach their dreams, you'll win them over.

There's one story that I think sums up Jobs' career at Apple. An executive who had the job of reinventing the Disney Store once called up Jobs and asked for advice. His counsel? Dream bigger. I think that's the best advice he could leave us with. See genius in your craziness, believe in yourself, believe in your vision, and be constantly prepared to defend those ideas.

Carmine Gallo is a communications coach, a popular keynote speaker and author of several books including The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs and The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs. His latest is The Power of Foursquare (McGraw-Hill, 2011).

What is Your Teachability Index?

Kevin Trudeau

I am just sitting down listing to a CD series by Kevin Trudeau, Your Wish is Your Command. On one of the first CD's he is discussing a very interesting topic about your teachability index.

He has askled a very simple and direct question. What is your teachability index?

This refers to your ability to learn, and your willingness to accept change. If you are not willing to learn and change, you have what is considered to be a low teachability index. If you have a strong desire to learn and are willing to accept change, than you have what is considered to be high teachability index.

In other words, a low teachability index means that you are stuck and you will remain doing what it is that you are doing. In order to move forward, you must have a high teachability index… a desire for knowledge and change.

If you have a high teachability index and are willing to change you might want this crazy giveaway. Kevin is offering this course for only the cost of shipping. $20.00 is all he is asking, the set includes 14 CD's that were recorded over two days somewhere in the Alps, where group paid $10,000.00 a person to attend a two day event.

I just did a quick Google search and there are prices up to $400.00 posted on various websites, so if you are interested, follow this link. After listening to the first two CD's on this set, I am suggesting that you jump all over this, as it suggests that it is a limited time offer.
