If you have a pulse…this should make you very angry that these phucking asshole marketers still exist to this day hurting people every day. This is specific to species targeting public school teachers. Folks, these are marketers pushing products that benefit THEM the sellers, NOT the buyers! Brings to mind many Titan credit card salesmen in the miles and points blog space who just push the credit card products relentlessly to their readers who don’t know any better and are roped in to them thanks to expert SEO and other marketing tactics. These “professionals” are NOT fiduciaries, they don’t look out for YOUR best interest! This drives me raving mad almost twenty years later after I started my Fee Only Fiduciary firm. You should listen to this guy’s webinar (originally posted at another good blog here) and I guarantee you (again, if you have a pulse) that you should barf all over yourself. Only fellow marketers will think this is brilliant, SAD!
Some lowlights from this video include:
- A call to find “Leaders and Builders” (AKA financial rapers and pillagers).
- “No charge backs, little marketing costs, and minimal drive time.” (Hit the ground running.)
- “All of your clients, in one location. Do it right!” (Like shooting fish in a barrel!)
- How to set up “Lunch and Learns” that are “big on data and will allow you to have summers off just like the teachers!” (Eat lunch and learn how YOU will finance the annuity salesperson’s retirement.)
- This business is a “recession-proof -business will increase during these times.” (There’s nothing like preying on people’s fears during the worst possible moments to generate commissions.)
It gets MUCH worse from there…
You have been warned!
In 2017 it seems that everyone is in everyone else’s business, and the list foreshadows the coming battles as various industries, and the titans who captain them, increasingly weave together into one.
A few of my favs are from #1 Bezos of Amazon:
Jeff Bezos – WORKOUT REGIMEN “Heavy weights and whiskey. Not simultaneously.”
Okay, this edition of TBB’s Best of the Web is more about personal finance it appears. I have always been a big fan of keeping it simple. Advice does NOT have to be complicated; on the contrary, the best advice is simple to understand. But so hard to administer and, this is important, to make people change their behaviors! Must read imho. Here are eight reasons listed:
There are at least eight reasons why taking a simple approach to investing is a wise thing to do.
- Reduced “Too smart for you own good risk”
- Clearer risk management
- Less trading
- Taxes are likely easier
- Not Trendy
First, let me just say I LOVED the film. May be a bit slow but it is a giant feast for the eyes! And of course, I am telling you, robots robots robots everywhere!
Like I said, it’s hauntingly beautiful!
A sequel you can believe in!
Mind blowing photography!
photomicrography is the practice of taking a photograph through a microscope or similar magnifying device in order to capture the intricate details of things invisible to the human eye.
And I leave you with this…
