Million Dollar Web Sites – Hot Off The Press

Alan Weiss and Chad Barr are pleased to announce a new joint venture, Million Dollar Websites. This was created in response to consistent requests for a combination of superb and powerful marketing text combined with state-of-the-art web technology. We’ve created an absolutely unique web site development approach—turnkey for a new site, metamorphosis for an existing site—with three programs to accommodate a variety of investments. The return on those investments will easily reach seven figures. Hence, Million Dollar Web Sites. We …


No Man Is An Island, Or Is He?

I’m announcing a rare and unique charity fund raiser. Not long ago, I raised $50,000 for the Newport International Film Festival, which I chair, by offering a day of coaching at my home. Nine people have since come or scheduled appointments. However, my wife is the special events chair for Festival Ballet Providence, and she is none too happy with me, since the ballet is in dire straits financially (artistically, it’s brilliant). Who knew that no good deed goes unpunished? …


Zero Degree Feedback

Tom Fishburne has kindly given me permission to reprint this cartoon he created for his blog. I think it symbolizes the nuttiness of current evaluation systems and the huge amounts of time wasted by people who don’t know how to evaluate, trying to give feedback to those who have no respect for their evaluation.

Someone to Edit Audio Presentation

I need someone to listen to a three-hour audio presentation recorded live, and note where there are editing needs by the minute. For example, we need to cut out the dead air during exercises or breaks and so forth. I’ll give their detailed notes to my audio guy for editing and then duplication. I’ll provide an editing credit on the eventual product and $500 in cash or $1,000 toward any future workshop as a credit. I’ll ship the three CDs …


The Workshop Workshop

I’m really excited about this new offering, The Workshop Workshop, or W2. I realized some years ago that brief, very high-end workshops were both more rewarding for me and more useful for participants than the quick, in-and-out keynote speech. Most of the money being made today in the speaking business is in training (non-celebrity, non-diversified keynoters are mostly starving). So, after launching over two dozen such offerings and realizing six figures per workshop and over seven for the year from …


Global Elite!!

There are so many scams out there that it’s no wonder I think the Internet is largely filled with crap. (In the great play, Avenue Q, the monster sings, “The Internet was made for porn.”) A “global elite” outfit for speakers contacts me out of the blue and wants me to join “4,500 elite global speakers.” I told them that 4,500 doesn’t sound very elite, it sounds as if they’re taking on anyone willing to sign up. The National Speakers …
