7 Tips to Hepl Your Child Confidence



Custom and Designer Apparel as Unique as You Are


Ruth was one of my best friends in elementary school. She was not the most talented student, nor the most intelligent.


She was not the best student in class. But she had great confidence. She had this special attitude of “I can do it”. Later, after graduation, she went on to work for a corporation. I followed her career, when she went up the corporate ladder, and finally landed a very prominent,


central position at her company.

I saw her take on projects that took major skills, I thought she didn’t have. She just attacked each project using this “can do” attitude, and she always found the right resources to either acquire the skills she needed, or found the right people to take on the assignments she could not perform herself. I was amazed at her achievements.


From observing Ruth and many other people around me in my career,

I learned a very important lesson: one’s confidence determines one’s career. A person can be a genius. He can be most qualified for a job. If he doesn’t believe that he can do it, he might not even take on the assignment in the first place. If he does take it on, most likely he will not be as successful as he could.


Just a few weeks ago,

I had a conversation with Tammy, another friend of mine. She is a very talented psychologist, very respected at her work place and by her superiors. She told me about a position that has become available at her office. I thought that it would be a fabulous opportunity for Tammy, but she said that she is not going to apply for this position, because she doesn’t have enough experience,



she does not have the skills needed,

and it will take at least another 5 years for her to be able to fulfill this position.Whether Tammy was right or not in her assessment, I think that this incident proves my point: confidence is a deciding factor for how successful one will be.


So how do we make sure our child develops strong confidence in his ability? In my opinion, this is one of the major issues in parenting. All educators need to ponder this and make sure they support confidence.


Here are a few suggestions that can make a huge difference in your child’s confidence:


1. “You can do it”.

Say it to your child often. Teach your child to say to himself, when he attempts to conquer a challenging assignment: “I can do it”.


It is very noticeable that when working on a Math problem, again, confidence is the deciding factor. A student who doubts his own ability to solve the problem, may not apply himself in trying to solve the problem. He will easily say “I can’t do it” or “it’s impossible to solve this”. A student with strong confidence will try until he finds the solution.


Help your child, by reminding him that he can do it. Teach him to say to himself, “I can do it!”.



2. Don’t criticize your child when he attempts an activity.

Don’t correct him. It is so tempting to correct a child, when you see him doing something “wrong”. You watch your child coloring, or trying to write, at an early age. He is holding the pen in an awkward position, and your mind is screaming “You hold the pen like this, not like that!”. Exercise discipline – don’t do it!


Should you let your child hold the pen incorrectly? No,

of course not! But let him do his research, his experimentation. Let him try different ways to hold the pen, and find out by himself what is most efficient. If you want, you can take your own pen, and your own paper, and do some writing right next to him. He will watch you, and see how you hold the pen. I am sure that he will try your method, and come to his own conclusion.



My neighbor Chris visited me with his 4 year old son, Nick. In order to keep Nick happy and busy, we gave him some crayons, pencils and paper, so that we could have our own conversation. As Nick was trying to write his name, holding the pencil in a slightly awkward position, writing some letters that had no resemblance to the letters in his name,


his father jumped up, yanked the pencil out of his hand, wrote the name down in front of him, and said, “What happened to you! This is wrong, this is how you write your name!” Nick is a very serious child, who attempts everything to the best of his ability. As I looked at him, I noticed the expression on his face.


It was very troubled. He laid the pencil down, and refused to try any more. What is the message Chris has given to his son? I think that the thought that went through Nick’s head was, “I am not good at this”. Ok, I give you 3 guesses: how good is Nick’s handwriting now, at age 8? – You guessed it! It is not good.

Working With Online Bookmakers

As An  Affiliate Marketer



It seems like an impossible situation,

Thousands of people each and every day attempt to raid the online bookmakers’ pockets, placing bets on a wide variety of sporting events.


Unfortunately for the majority of these the percentages back the bookmaker and therefore some will win but some will inevitably lose.


barring a radically successful betting technique,

which is improbable to the point of being impossible, Or becoming an online bookmaker yourself, ways in which to beat the system seem slightly limited. However if,


rather than trying to fight against the sports betting sites, you decide to take a step back and join them you may well be on the right tracks to turning losses into profits in no time.


Without having to spend a penny or lock horns with the gambling fraternity, an Internet user of any skill can earn money from the sports betting industry.

They can do so by joining one of the many affiliate-marketing programs available within the industry.


It may sound a little speculative or even downright crazy,

but affiliate marketing is actually one of the most successful ways for the common man and the big industries to profit from the Internet.


Because It works by simply rewarding persons who choose to host advertisements on their site, with a cash reward or a percentage of the profits from each player who clicks on them.


Website owners can sign up to these affiliate programs for free and even receive all the advertising and marketing paraphernalia that is required as a part of the bundle.


There are no hidden catches or risks involved,

all that a sports betting site requires is a small area on the site in which to place an advertisement.


Therefore In exchange for this free enterprise advertising opportunity a sports betting affiliate has the potential to tap into one of the most unique online affiliate programs.


Rather than offering a small percentage of a sale or an up front fee,The affiliates can choose to earn as a sports betting site earns it’s money.


Laura Geller


All so each time a player loses money a sports betting site gains that money. However if that player has joined via the links of one of the many affiliate links on the Internet,


that affiliate will receive a percentage of each lost bet.

These percentages can range anywhere between 15 and 35%, depending on the level of the affiliate and a number of intricacies within the affiliate program.


So each an every time a player bets an affiliate can earn up to 35% of that bet if it is lost.


However as it is gambling, players often win as well as lose, therefore some may question whether they are liable to lose cash should a player go on a rampant winning streak.


The answer to this is a simple ‘no’.

Most affiliate programs offer their members a sort of protection, as they pay at monthly or bi-weekly intervals, they have the opportunity to tot up the overall revenue.


This process takes into account all of the wins and the losses encountered by all of the players that each affiliate represents. If this is a minus figure, the affiliate will not be held liable.


Beside that the sports betting site foots the bill and the affiliate has to simply settle for receiving no money in that period.


However the more players playing for an affiliate,

the less likely this is to occur. Therefore the onus is on them to bring in more customers, which in turn benefits both them and the sports betting site.

Make Money Marketing to Marketers



 Many on line marketers sell all kinds of goodies to make it easier for other marketers to make a buck.


Marketing to other marketers to make it easier to make money is great but many of the buyers never use the products and just try to pawn them off on other marketers.


So you wind up with all these people selling scripts, programs, e-Books, and more to other on line marketers and they profess how great they are without ever using them.

They are just trying to make a buck

as an affiliate of someone

else’s idea.


     First of all   I am all for new marketing ideas especially the ones that automate tedious tasks. I love submitting articles and use an auto submitter. RSS feeds provide news to my sites.


Automatically creating links to Clickbank items based on keywords in my blogs is a godsend.

But, to me, if people don’t use these products and just pimp them to others, they are missing out on the long term benefits for a quick buck.


I admit that I have done this in the past and may do it again in the future – but – I only sell products that I actually use and approve. That way I can actually vouch for them since I have used them and can speak from personal experience.





Personally, I prefer to market to the average Internet Joe. I market to people who are looking for a deal on a credit card (and I use a super script to keep my site current).


  Therefore  i recommend hotels in Thailand and can speak from first-hand experience.

Also i post links to hotels in Thailand forums and also have 6 Thai affiliate hotel sites.

 For instance I also write articles about Thailand and list my hotel affiliate links in the author’s resource box. These are pretty easy to write since I have been traveling to Thailand for over 30 years.


  However I also write the occasional marketing or credit article to get some traffic to those sites. I have about 10 article sites and advertise on those sites that others submit their articles to.

I would rather make a few bucks marketing a product to people who are actually going to use it instead of marketing to someone who is only going to try to sell it to someone else.


All of this is just my personal opinion. There is nothing morally wrong or illegal of marketing to marketers. I use many of the items that are up for sale, especially those that make my life a little bit easier.


The one thing that I do object to is the folks that market to others and make false or misleading statements indicating that they use the product and how wonderful it is when they have never used it and just want to make a buck.


Anyhow, keep coming up with all those great products that marketers can use to make our lives easier. Just market them honestly.


Local networking events

Local network



Build your business network by talking to EVERYONE you meet and then keep a catalog of names, contacts and resources. When you find yourself in a bind and need to dip into your resource pool, you will be prepared. Keep in touch with these people,

and talk to them to find out what new information, job or contacts THEY have acquired.

Have you ever been invited to a networking breakfast? Or a networking lunch? These may should sort of strange to the person who has never been to one before,


But these types of situations are key to moving yourself to talk with others about what you do,How you do it, and what you provide in the form of services and products.

Many areas have their own type

of networking events

These include business meetings to talk about the economy, or business meetings to set new ordinances for the local surroundings – everywhere you have people; you have the opportunity to ‘do’ additional networking.


The more people you know and talk with the stronger your network of business contacts and customer contact is going to become.




a man writing in abook

Local network



The first step to successful local networking

is going to involve doing it

You need to get out there, and be where other business owners are, or at least where large groups of people are going to be found. Next, you need a good opening question. The best question you can ask a person when you are networking is,


What do you do? This is not only going to open the door to talking with another person, but also it is going to open the door for that person in turn to ask you what you do – which is just what you want them to ask you!


Networking should be done in conversation when you are in situations where you don’t know someone all that well. Business cards are often given out, and passed around. If you are heading off to a club meeting, or a networking business affair,

you should also have marketing materials with you,

Such as a brochure or some type of printed matter to show and tell others what you do. As others find your materials handed to them, or presented on a table of information, they have something tangible to take with them, read later, and to think about later.


Collect phone number, emails and

information about other businesses

As you collect information about others, you will soon learn that you can use this information after you are back at the office, back at your own business. Create a marketing package for each individual that you have met. Mail out the information with a personal note from you,


that it was great talking with you,

And you just wanted to share some additional information about your business with them, in case they ever have a need for a product or service that you provide. This is very straight marketing, after the initial networking event, make it work for you!

What is Self Image?


Answering the Time-Old Question 


Self image has been scrutinized by psychologists and philosophers alike for centuries.

Even though there are many arguments as to what self image is exactly, people will agree

that self image has much to do with how a person feels about him/herself.


Some would say that self image means how a person views himself in the world. What a person does everyday – their job, how they treat others, how attractive they are to others – hinges on their self image.

Some people have positive perceptions of themselves, while others do not. It is believed that people who have positive perceptions of themselves have been told they are good, or useful.


Those who are constantly told they aren’t good or useful, have

negative perceptions of themselves.

This leads to another definition of self image which is how others view a person. If others do not enjoy a person’s company, the person may develop a poor self image. If other people do not find a person attract, the person may suffer from poor self image.

People often put too much emphasis on what others think about them. It is important to remember that one’s self image will change throughout their lifetime. They begin to rely less on what others think about them as they mature and find hobbies and social groups that accept them.

Their perception changes as they become more educated. Learning a skill or learning more about the world can have a positive impact on a person’s self esteem.





Sometimes, though, a person needs counseling in order to develop a positive self image. This is very common among women and teenagers. Fashion magazines show women that are perfect when in reality they are not.


Some women feel they cannot live up to these expectations and

become depressed.

Teenagers feel the same way when they compare themselves to others in their peer group. Unrealistic comparisons like these are dangerous. They can lead to eating disorders, disruptive behavior, and eventually drug or alcohol abuse.

Talking with a therapist can sometimes make a person realize that they do not have to compare themselves to others. Their self image improves and they can lead happy lives.

Self image needs to be nurtured. Everyone feels less than perfect sometimes. But most people recover and go on with their lives.


But some people cannot let go of these bad feelings as easily.

Their self image is so unrealistic, they make themselves sick and need professional help and advice in order to gain the strength needed to get past those bead feelings.





Membership Websites Attract

New Visitors  Daily





 The Internet reaches a mind-boggling number of people,

putting amazing amounts of information at their fingertips. Lately, however, it seems that Web surfers have begun to change the way they find that information.


Although the Internet was originally conceived as a medium by which information could be freely exchanged, membership websites –

sites that charge membership fees for access to informative content – are becoming increasingly more popular.


“The Internet is no longer free,”

 Michael Rasmussen, author of the e-book ‘How to Start Your Own Highly Profitable Internet Membership Web Site.’

“People are eagerly seeking information, and they will gladly pay for what they perceive as more valuable, reliable content.”

Membership websites include news sites and expert information sites, such as CNN.com and The Wall Street Journal (WSJ.com).

Although an extensive Internet search can often turn up the same information contained on these sites,


many Web surfers simply don’t have the time. They prefer to pay a membership fee and get the desired information easily and immediately –


rather than taking the time to find the information themselves.

According to Rasmussen, there is a formula that all successful membership websites must follow. His information, available at www.MembershipSiteInfo.com  ,

explains the workings of building and running a membership website.


Readers learn what are the most popular topics that people are willing to pay for, and why; how to find valuable content for membership websites;

tips on designing a site that is both attractive and functional;

Also a methods for successfully marketing a membership website.

Written from Rasmussen’s own extensive experience, the resource is guaranteed to help entrepreneurs tap into the growing popularity of membership websites.

“This is the future of the Internet,”


Rasmussen said of paid membership websites.

“People today want quality information. If you can offer them reliable, accurate information on topics that they’re interested in, they are more than willing to pay.”

Why So Many People Fail to Earn In Affiliate Marketing



Free UK Delivery on all online orders over £10


More and More people are lured into affiliate marketing

and you might be one of them. Indeed, affiliate marketing is one of the most effective means of generating a full-time income through the Internet.


It’s a fair deal between the merchandiser and his affiliates as both   benefit from each sale materialized. Like in other kinds of business, a great deal of the profits in affiliate marketing depends on the  affiliate’s advertising,


  First of all  Promoting and selling strategies.

Everyday, as affiliate marketing industry expands, competition heightens as well so  an affiliate marketer must be creative enough to employ unique and  effective ways to convince potential buyers to purchase or avail of the  products and services offered.


Compared to traditional advertising practices,

affiliate programs are  more effective, risk-free and cost-efficient. But why do many people  still fail in affiliate marketing? There are a lot of reasons and a lot  of areas in the program to look into.


The most critical aspect in the  affiliate program is advertising.

Many affiliate marketers fail in this  aspect because they lack hard work, which is the most important thing in affiliate marketing and in all other kinds of business as well.  Although it pays to be lucky,


   In addition  you cannot merely rely on it.

Affiliate  marketing isn’t as simple as directing customers to the business site.  If you want to earn big, of course, you have to invest time and great  amount of hard work in promoting the products.


As earlier mentioned,

the competition is very high and customers nowadays are very wise, too.
After all, who doesn’t want to get the best purchase—that is, to pay  less and get more in terms of quantity and quality.


Lack of preparation is also a reason why one fails in affiliate  marketing,

whether he is a merchandiser or an affiliate. Part of the  preparation is researching. On the part of the merchant, he has to be  highly selective in choosing the right affiliate websites for his



affiliate program.In order to be sure he has the best choices,

he must  have exhausted his means in looking for highly interested affiliates whose sites are sure fit to his products and services. The affiliate site’s visitors must match his targeted customers.


On the other hand,

Affiliate marketer must likewise research on the good-paying merchandisers before he signs up for an affiliate program.


He must ensure that the merchants’ products and services match his interests so he can give his full attention and dedication to the program.


 Therefore He can get valuable information by joining affiliate forums,

Comparing different affiliate programs and reading articles on affiliate marketing where he can get tips from experienced affiliate marketers on  how to choose the best merchants and products with high conversion rate.


The website is a very important tool in the whole affiliate program.

As an affiliate marketer, you should plan how your site is going to be, from domain name to the design, the lay-out, the content,

and ads. Some users are particular about what they see at first glance and thus when they find your site ugly,


they won’t read through the content even if  your site has many things to say and offer. On the other hand, there those who want information more than anything else. Affiliate marketers
with “rich-content”


web sites are usually the ones who prosper in this business because the content improves traffic to the site.

Websites with high quality contents—with relevant keywords and more importantly, right information about the product and not empty hyped-up  advertisements—


  Therefore  it  allow you to earn big in affiliate marketing even when  you’re asleep.

If you won’t be able to sustain the interest of your site visitor, you won’t be able to lead him to the merchants’ site. No click-through means no sale and thus, no income on your part.


Selecting a top level domain name is also crucial to the success of the  affiliate program. Lots of affiliate sites don’t appear in the search engine results because they are deemed by affiliate managers as personal sites.


Major search engines and directories would think of your site as transient ones and thus,

they won’t list it in the directory. Before you decide on the domain name, know first what you
are going to promote.


Many fail because their sites are not appropriately named,

so even when they feature the exact products the  customer is looking for, the customer might think the site is not relevant and thus, won’t enter the site.


Above all, an affiliate marketer must be willing to learn more.

Certainly, there are still a lot of things to learn and so an affiliate marketer must continue to educate himself so he can improve his  marketing strategies.


Many fail because they don’t grow in the business  and they are merely concerned about earning big quickly. If you want   long-term and highly satisfactory results, take time to learn the ins
and outs of the business.


Stacy Adams

Continue to improve your knowledge especially  with the basics

in affiliate marketing ranging from advertising to  programming, web page development, and search engine optimization techniques. Likewise,study the needs and wants of your site users and  how different merchandisers compete with each other.


Keep on trying;

don’t get disappointed if your first attempts did not pay off. Thousands are attracted by the possibility of generating  skyrocketing incomes through affiliate marketing and so they sign up in  any affiliate program without carefully understanding every aspect of the business.


When they don’t get instant results,

they quit and sign up for another program and repeat the process of just copying links and referring them to others. When you sign up for an affiliate program,


don’t expect to get rich in an instant. Work on your advertising  strategies and be patient. You’ll never know how much you can get if  you don’t persevere.
