Features that you would like to see added to TipDrop

I would like to be able to click on a person's picture and get to their home page. Right now it takes 2-3 clicks to get there. This seems natural to just click on them.

Saving Money On Transportation

Fill up your tank before it's empty. Each car is different. But I've noticed that I get the best mileage when I fill the tank before it's 3/4 empty. So watch and learn from your car.

How to potty train

I used the one day training method with all 3 of my girls and it was a dream. One day of intense interaction with just that one child and your potty training worries are over! Of course, you do have to figure out what to do with the other kids that day...

Do a lot of teleseminars and webinars. Not only are they less threatening than facing a live audience, but you can set them up yourself. (Great way to build your list!) The more you speak the easier it gets - regardless of the format.

Build Your Business with Teleseminars

How To Manage Your Child's Meltdown

Isolation is what always worked for our kids. Put them in the corner, in another room if they're old enough. If at home you can even take a 2-year-old to her crib so she can calm down. Generally it only takes a few minutes.

Audible.com is a long-term provider of audio books. And it gets tons of traffic. One of the people who interviewed me 6 years ago loaded the audio to Audible and I still get clients who first found me on Audible. Great credibility and great traffic.

Dash or no dash in a domain name?

  » Computers & Internet


Rule of Thumb - If I'm going to speak the name most of the time - no dashes. If I am using it strictly online with hyperlinks, dashes are okay - especially if there could be confusion such as SecretsExposed - which has sex in the middle of it!

How to shoot professional looking video

Lighting makes the difference between a fair video and a great video. You can buy professional lights on Amazon if you shoot in a home studio. Or you can use the "work lights" from Home Depot if you're on a budget. But add light to your videos.

Reasons NOT to buy a Flip Camera

  » Consumer Electronics


I use my camera to shoot video of me, talking to the camera. The flip is difficult to line up - to be sure you're in frame. The Insignia has a rotating screen, so I can face it toward me to be sure I'm still in the video lens. Saves time & frustration!

Reasons NOT to buy a Flip Camera

  » Consumer Electronics


I looked into buying a flip camera, but found a better, cheaper alternative. I purchased the $99 (on sale) Insignia DV camera at Best Buy. Stores to SD so I can just put a new one in, rather than erase video recordings. Charges quickly & lasts for hours.
