Pandora is a great music service; Pandora One happens to be the paid version of Pandora. There are pluses to each version depending on your needs, and this post isn’t about which version is better so I won’t go into it. Though if you are interesting in what Pandora One offers click here to read about it on the official Pandora site. One of the big things in Pandora One is that you can use their desktop application instead of the website. This really is personal preference again about which one you think is better, but the point is that you CAN use it in Linux (not just Ubuntu Linux).Continue Reading...
Piotr Krzyzek InterviewI had the great privilege of being interviewed by Terrie Wurzbacher of Getting Unstuck LLC. I must say that was a very new and interesting experience for me! It was my first interview ever and we covered a whole slew of topics.
- More me
- Getting unstuck in life
- What internet marketing is REALLY like. Trust us, it’s not what all those ‘gurus’ say it is. It takes work!
- Great tips for getting your foot in the door with Internet Marketing
- Biggest challenges for new internet marketers
- and some info about my latest upcoming Facebook fanpage guide (for businesses).
It’s well worth the listen. But don’t take my word for it. Inside you’ll learn a bit more about me and Terrie, and a whole lot about starting off with internet marketing. But please go easy on me. It was my first interview and I was scared out of my mind the whole time And yeah, I did blank a few times.
That’s life people. It takes work, some balls and effort. Even internet marketing. This interview proves that with even a little bit of effort each day you can move forward in life. Terrie and I both really enjoyed the interview, and we both you do to.
Let us know what you thought

STOP! Don’t you dare think another thought. It’s what’s hurting you the most in your business. You think, think and think some more but never do. Some of you do go ahead and start on plans but never complete them because you over think or your mind strays. STOP IT. Stop thinking.
Thinking is what get’s people ahead right? WRONG. It’s action that moves business forward and thrives innovation. If people thought all the time we would still be in the dark ages. Don’t get me wrong here: be creative, think of new initiatives and new marketing techniques. Learn and expand your mind, but in the process “do”.
Many internet marketers fall for this exact trap. They become the proverbial eternal student. They jump from one internet marketing topic to the next. From article marketing to twitter to youtube and on and on and on. They never pin down what they need to (or want to) do. This is a syndrome that more people fall into than I’d like. I know I’ve been there, and sort of am now.
For me starting out in internet marketing, once I found what I thought was “the next best thing” I hopped on it right away. Started on it, thought about it. Noticed is really is harder than what the so called “gurus” told me. Thought more about. Then started worrying how hard it is and how long it will take to do. Then I came across the ‘next best thing’. And the cycle repeated itself.
I couldn’t stop thinking about it all, the small parts and big sections. Overall my own brain worked against me. I was focused on the task, but I just couldn’t move past the “goal/plan & think” stage.
So, my point here is: Turn off your brain and take action. No matter what it is. Even if you screw up and fail horridly, it’s OK. If you fail, you then know what doesn’t work. So learn from your mistake, don’t over think it, and go ahead with the next try or step.
Here is a tip if you ever start thinking in the wrong direction or on tangents: write it down on a piece of paper and forget about it. Come back to the other ideas later. Also try to do one ‘step’ forward each day. Do something which actually moves you forward in life.
My fellow readers, what do you think is a good way to stop thinking and finally move forward?

Getting anything done these days is becoming harder and harder. You have information coming at you from every direction and at times it is hard to decipher what is what and which way to go. One of the best things you can do is slow yourself down, and manage your time into a schedule that fits YOU … not your work.
There are so many ‘schemes’ to do put your life in-order, so I do not want to give you more. Instead, here are two general themes to follow for making your life more manageable. One way is the 40-30-30 rule, the other way is a strict scheduling method. Let me tell you about the 40-30-30 rule first.
