If you follow the NFL, you know that the season starts this week (first game is on September 8 , 2011) and the last round of cut was a few days ago. All the teams had to get to a 53-man roster limit.

When I first started network marketing, Twitter was just starting to become popular. Everyone was trying to figure out how to use Twitter. Many network marketers were also trying to find out the best way to use twitter marketing.
At that time, network marketers were jumping onto Twitter and trying to get people to their sales page. Much of the Twitter training at the time was how to get as many followers fast and post your links to sales pages.
Then a little while later, many started several Twitter accounts and automating all of them using automating tools. However, this way of Twitter advertising is not the best way. I know this from experience.
If you have been in internet marketing for any amount of time you know it can be very difficult learning all the technical parts.

If you have been around attraction marketing and reading around my blog you will hear a lot about value. First we should look at just what value is. I define this type of value simply as the ability to help other marketers reach their dreams and goals.
You have gurus telling you that you should buy one of their products and get value. However, it is much more to it than just buying a product. While there is some truth there, it is missing a very important part. You can know every marketing strategy, generate hundreds of leads a day and still be struggling and in the end broke if you are missing this crucial ingredient to success.
