Are You Better than CNN?

79728816_a181f16cfd_mOnce upon a time, I used to be in the news business.

Newspapers, magazines (and even now I consult at a small town newspaper and help out at a community radio station).

So why I am I telling you to ignore the news?

Here’s the thing.

If you were to listen any of the TV newscasts last week, you’d think the end of the world was nigh. Maybe today. Maybe next week. But economic collapse was around the corner.

You wait and see.

Except that it wasn’t, as we know.

The thing is, CNN, Fox and the rest of the newzmongers get ratings when they press the fear button.

 Each time they trip that fear trigger, a little bit of adrenaline seeps into your bloodstream. And you get addicted.

So you keep watching.

I know – I was in the news business. And fear sells.

But here’s the thing.

There’s just nothing you can do about what happens in Congress.


But you do have the power to focus on your business.

So turn off the TV and start working on that.

Make your future YOURS.

Build something.

Contact a client.

Do some marketing.

Send a newsletter to your list of clients and past clients. Distract them from the TV with something entertaining and informative.

The newsletters I make for you have…

-          Interesting articles that aren’t about the debt ceiling (I promise)

-          Engagement devices to get them to contact you

-          The ability to edit them 100% to make them really yours.

The 30-day trial is at

Do something to change your future – debt ceiling or no debt ceiling.
