People always want to talk about how things are an “overnight success.”

But that’s only because the public wasn’t witness to the years of blood, sweat, tears, and failures that led up to the ultimate public success.

History is full of “famous failures” who would never have been known if they hadn’t persisted; hadn’t taken their lumps; hadn’t repeatedly gotten back up after being knocked down over and over and over.

For instance, did you know that:

Picture this...

You're at a business function, strolling around, holding some sort of finger food in one hand, and a free drink in the other, sheepishly looking around the room waiting for someone with a warm smile to catch your eye so you can start up the same old awkward conversation.

The Power of Persuasive Questions - NLP InfluenceAs a frequent trainer of influence in the field of NLP, I'm often asked how to get people to listen.

Most people today report that they feel like people just don't listen. We live in a world that is cynical, jaded and disconnected. People are more inundated with information, opportunities, and marketing than ever before. I recently heard a researcher who said that we are now exposed to over 30,000 marketing messages per day.

So, people are (justifiably) more guarded than ever.

This can lead to a bit of depression for small-business owners who often feel inextricably interconnected with their product or service. People are not rejecting the thing. They are rejecting "me."

Product Review: DocRaptor

Friday, August 26th, 2022 : Read 46 Times : 146 words (Aprox 1 min read)

Our clients often see the cool things that we do with images and PDFs and ask me what I use to create these kinds of things.

So I thought this would be a great time to review our preferred service: DocRaptor.

DocRaptor is a service built on top of the Prince PDF engine, which can be very complex. But DocRaptor makes it simple.

It allows you to create custom PDFs from simple HTML sources, which is easier to use than traditional programming. So you can send invoices, custom documents, customized ebooks, personalized quiz results, and more with minimal technical knowledge.

It's got some great formatting too, like adding tables of contents, page numbers, indexes, footnotes, and more automatically.

And you can use Zapier to connect DocRaptor to your other services like ClickFunnels, Keap, ActiveCampaign, Kajabi, and more.
