I'm just going to go over a bunch of different gadgets, both online and offline, that I use just all over the place. I just brainstormed and sat my chair and thought about all the kinds of things that I use almost on a daily basis just to get through life and business. And I know I didn't get all of them. So if I get enough of them, I'll do a future episode as an update. But let's jump in and get started.

Lakia Robinson is here with me and she's been with me for about five years and takes a massive load off of my back and I still have to participate, too. It's not that I'm totally divorced from everything. Even with her handling this all day and all night. So it's a big production. It's a must have for you now in your business, because guess what? If any clients, the first thing they do is check you out on social media. Anybody ever heard of you? Does anybody care about you?

Why should you do this? Why should you get in the digital information marketing arena? Well, one reason, it's extremely low risk and another reason is its extremely high profit margins. I mean, digital products are 97 percent profit. I mean, if somebody happens to give you a check, it's 100 percent profit. But most of the time you've got a little credit card fees. So that's why we say it's 97 percent profit.

I've been saying that YouTube ads are the best bargain when it comes to online ads. Now, why do I say that? Because you can get tons of branding and name recognition totally for free. And when you do get an ad watch, that's usually at a bargain basement price. I mean, sometimes as little as one cent. But, you know, almost always mine have been below 10 cents. And the same keywords would cost me between a dollar twenty and four dollars and ninety two cents if I was putting the ad on Google search.

After being in business for many years, I started to notice certain principles that by living by them, they seemed to create more success for me. Then I started telling them to my mentees and they seemed to have more success when they adhered to them. And over time, these principles seem like they were totally solid and worthy of memorializing, which I did by making posters of them and hanging them on the wall of my school. And now in this episode, I guess I'm memorializing them in a little different way.
