Today marks the 100th and last episode of the non-historic podcast. Listen in, and years from now, you’ll say you were there…

Nov 18, 2018

This week’s podcast is about why I am going to be ending this podcast with next week’s episode (show #100).

Many valuable lessons are embedded within.

Plus, more on why I snapped my fingers and "Thanos’d" my Facebook.

Nov 11, 2018

Today’s podcast is all about a term I throw around sometimes:

“Marketing prole”

And 10 tells that flag them as such.

Nov 4, 2018

This week’s podcast is kinda hard to explain without giving away the big reveal I tease at the beginning.

But, I will say, if you like:

1. Arnold Schwarzenegger

2. The Villains Book

3. Good movies

I suspect you will enjoy it more than the average panda.

This week’s podcast is for people who follow me but should be following Gary Vee, and my attempt to drive them over to his camp, and far, far away from me...

Oct 21, 2018

Recently at a mastermind, the chick who organized it gave me a magnificent compliment, when she said:

“You’re like a crotchety old guy in a young man’s body.”


And that’s why I am a much bigger fan of anti-social media vs social media. And in today’s podcast, I show my favorite anti-social media tools.

This week’s podcast is a peek into my righteous swipe file, revealing the top 10 sales letters I study, and believe anyone else should study, copy out by hand, and use as case studies, too.

Oct 7, 2018

Today’s podcast continues our journey into the bowels of my best-selling “Persuasion Secrets of the World’s Most Charismatic & Influential Villains” book.

Specifically, we walk through chapters 6-10.

Sep 30, 2018

This week’s podcast is the first part of a two part series walking you through the troll-tears creating principles and ideas found inside my best-selling “Persuasion Secrets of the World’s Most Charismatic & Influential Villains” book.

Sep 23, 2018

In this week’s exhausting podcast, I do my level best to persuade you, dear one, to sac up and take 10-mile walks each day, and all the business and various mony-making benefits that will almost certainly result.

Sep 9, 2018

This week’s podcast I reveal what is quite possibly the most profitable thing anyone can probably do to ramp up their sales and grow their business.

A very tip simple, too.

But, also too hair-raising for the great, unwashed masses.

Sep 2, 2018

This week’s podcast is my tribute of sorts to the late, great Earl Nightingale. Including why he is probably spinning in his grave, and the most profitable lessons, ideas, and principles I’ve learned from him over the past 20+ years of studying his products.

Lots of immediately-profitable info inside.

Aug 26, 2018

In today’s exciting podcast, I reveal the big secret behind how freelance copywriters can make all the money their cold, dank hearts desire. A secret used by everyone from the great Dan Kennedy to be the highest paid freelancer in the world, to the great Stan Lee to become the highest paid comic book writer of his day.

Aug 19, 2018

This week’s podcast talks about a secret, dare I say “miraculous” marketing secret used by a depression-era boxing champ that can (literally) save a dying business.

Very powerful information.

And so simple, even a coach can do it.

Q&A 0
Aug 12, 2018

Today’s podcast is an unsacred Q&A, where I pulled 5 questions from my righteous sack, answered them, and sent the question-askers on their merry ways with a figurative swat on the bottom.

Aug 5, 2018
This fine Sunday podcast is about using the brutal power of contrast to make all your marketing more memorable and profitable.
Jul 29, 2018

The subject line above is a quote from the great, and esteemed Bobby Singer of the TV show “Supernatural.” It’s also one of the 7 “Email Players” rules covered on today’s podcast.

Jul 22, 2018

This week’s podcast is about how to “unbroke” yourself. I have no idea if it will add anything to anyone’s life, especially since it teaches how to think and problem solve, and most people have no interest in doing either…

Jul 15, 2018

This week’s podcast is my ex-spurt review of the smash hit movie “Black Panther”, including a list of profitable business lessons, tips, and ideas I observed while watching it.

Jul 8, 2018

This week’s (very short) podcast reveals a secret publication (no longer in print, but easily accessible today) that was the secret weapon of one of history’s greatest copywriters.

Jul 1, 2018
Today’s podcast concludes my 4-part “Mount Rushmore” (hat tip to the great Brian Kurtz for the analogy) of people who get most of the credit (or blame…) for any success I’ve had.

The first 3 were Matt Furey, Gary Bencivenga, and Ken McCarthy.

All of which I’ve been fortunate enough to get testimonials from.

This 4th one, I won’t be able to get one from.


Because the great Gary Halbert passed away over 10 years ago. (Cue up one of the bat shyt woo-woo coaches offering to do a seance…) But, that doesn’t mean I can’t fan-boy all over the place about the things I learned from him and the impact they’ve had.
