Your Extraordinary Life Episode #-1: Get Books For Free From Amazon, Legally, Ethically and Morally. No tricks, just pure unadulterated reading fun!

Hello and welcome to this first episode of Your Extraordinary Life. My name is Peter Krzyzek and this is THE podcast dedicated to creating an extraordinary life for you and everyone around you. My goal is to help you create amazing experiences by having an open mind, using a bit of common sense, and becoming a better person and leader.

In this pre-launch special Christmas/Holiday/New-Year edition, I talk about how and where to get books to read for free from Amazon. In one method, you need an Amazon Kindle and a Prime account. In the other, all you need is a regular Amazon account.

This is a video version of my previous post: Start 2014 Off Right With Thousands Of Free Amazon Kindle Books!

No matter what career path you are in, more than likely you’ll eventually want to or have to make a video presentation. It can be on Youtube, Vimeo or even self-hosted, but the point is that you’ll have to create a video and publicly post it. This means you’re video will have to educate and persuade. For today’s short-attention spanned audiences, a 10 minute video is usually pretty perfect. If you’re creating a sales video, something even shorter would probably work.

How To Create Viral Videos That Are Extremely Persuasive

There are many scenerios, styles, methods and variables but thankfully the post (and video) on Social Media Examiner .com by Michael Stelzner lights the path! His post comes in text form, video (links) and podcast format! Woot! I recommend reading it first, then watching the videos.

How to Properly Add A Youtube Video To A Post In my last post I added a Youtube video. Nothing special, but a first for me. “So”, you might be asking, “why on earth are you blogging about something so common?” The answer is simple, because it’s not as straight forward as it should be. Youtube makes it easy to insert their videos anywhere, but if you follow their instructions (all of a two step process!). WordPress’s way does not seem to be the answer.

On the offical WordPress help pages, it states that all you have to do is click the “Insert Media” button, then click “From URL”, add in the youtube url and POOF! It should work. Sounds easy right? Well kiddies, it’s not that easy. Maybe it’s the changes in the WP api or changes in Youtube, I don’t know. But you can’t do it that way. All that happens when you do that is you get a simple, normal, boring, hyperlink.

The link points to the video, but does not embed it at all. That was following WP’s way detailed here [1].The proper way is a heck of a lot simpler. Here is the step my step extremely complicated process:

  1. Find the youtube video you want and open it on youtube.com
  2. Copy the code from the Embed section

Business Man Stray Pet There are always things that make our day brighter even in the face of recessions and all the like. In a recent article recently on The Consumerist (here [1]) they added a little sketch comedy video by the Kids In The Hall. The video has a young boy bring home a stray businessman.

Like any stray pet, the mother does not approve of this action. The businessman ‘pet’ acts much like a stereotypical business man and once he’s inside the house, hilarity ensues. Watch as the boy and businessman pet have many adventures through life and the boy learns about life (more hilarity). More silliness as the story comes to an end with a rather odd ending. Watch and enjoy the Kids In The Hall making fun of most business men (and women).
