This book is for everyone who desperately needs to find a way to cope with the jerks, the idiots and the terrible people in our lives.
The truth is, we’ve all got a little bit of jerk, idiocy and terribleness inside of us. The question is, just how much? Want to find out? Read this book. And maybe the even more important question; when we meet people who have a Chernobyl level of it all pumping through their veins, how are we supposed to deal with them?
This is NOT a book for people who get offended easily. If you want to have some fun by exploring the inner, most dark thoughts we all have in our minds about how to deal with people who drive us crazy… then this book is for you. If you are bothered by those things, it’s probably best if you look for a book about unicorns and rainbows. Yes, you are better than us.
Have you ever felt yourself secretly wishing that the guy who cut you off in rush hour would spill boiling coffee in his lap and drive into a ditch? At any point in your life do you wonder how your co-worker managed to get the raise you deserved even though they are so obviously unqualified because they can’t even spell their own name correctly? Have you ever been perplexed why there are so many truly terrible people in the world who seem to exist just to mess with you?
Told in a fun, conversational tone, you will gather an understanding of how the world, and humans, have raced to the bottom and how to free yourself from letting these jerks, idiots and terrible people control your life.
It’s gonna be a fun ride. You in?
ANYONE can do this. It depends on how bad you want it.
Do you want it?
This is a short, fast read that will kick you in the pants and make you believe and understand how you can do it.
NO fluff here. You can read this in a short plane ride and you will walk away educated and excited about how you can build your own business around a lifestyle.
This book, and the two volumes that will come after it, are written to help you understand how to live the life you always wanted, by building a business that can help you get there. A business that doesn’t control you. A business that doesn’t force you to work 80-hour weeks, or work on something you absolutely dislike.
There is absolutely no reason you shouldn’t have the life you always wanted. Life is too short to live that way. The stories and examples from the lifestyle entrepreneurs in this book will open your mind to this very true reality and hopefully get you to finally understand these facts.
So let’s get down to business. It’s time to change the way you think and show you how possible all of this can be.

Excerpt from the book...
#1 Reason - Laziness
I don’t think there’s an easy way to put this. I have to assume that you’re lazy. Every single successful person works their butts off to get where they are. It’s ok to be lazy. Just admit it. But don’t whine about not being rich and successful, ok?
#2 Reason - Entitlement
Only a few people in the world are part of the lucky sperm club. You and me? We gotta work to get what we want. Quit thinking you are owed something. You’re not. Get to work.
#3 Reason - Fear
You are afraid, plain and simple. Afraid of looking silly. Afraid of what your friends and family will say. Afraid of everything. Look, you’re either going to stop being afraid, or you’re not. Nobody can convince you to stop. Imagine though... what awaits you when you stop with the fear excuses?
#4 Reason - Negativity
You may not realize it, but the people you associate with might be negative assholes. They could be soul-sucking beings who don’t want anyone to be successful. Get rid of them, now! Surround yourself with successful people. People you want to be like.
#5 Reason - Stop Thinking
How much do you want to bet you have paralysis by analysis? You think way too much about what you could or should do. Doers get what they want, and everyone else gets what they get. Stop analyzing and start doing.
#6 Reason - No Goals
You plan nothing. You believe that someway, somehow, everything you always wanted will just magically happen. So you “play it by ear” and wait. You need goals to shoot for. Otherwise, you’re just treading water.
#7 Reason - “They”
There’s no “they”. There’s no secret group of people that controls your success or failure. You’ve made that up to make you feel better about yourself. The truth is you, and you alone, control your success in life/business/everything. It’s easy to blame “them” though, isn’t it? Weak.
#8 Reason - No “X” Factor
You can’t do it because you’re not pretty enough. Or don’t have a strong personality? You don’t have the “X” factor? Wow, what an unbelievably lame excuse. The truth is even jerks, idiots and boring people can be just as successful as anyone else. Your problem is you don’t believe it yet.
#9 Reason You’re Not As Successful As You Should Be - Time Waste
You’re a classic time-waster. You spend hours and hours every day working on not-working. You do things that aren’t productive. How are you ever going to get anything done, or reach any goal if you keep wasting time? You’re not. So you might as well give up now if you’re going to keep this path.
#10 Reason - Social B.S.
You spend way too much time in social media land. You waste probably about 50% of your productive hours of the day doing this. The sad part is, you know it, but you can’t stop. So you can’t get anything done that matters.
#11 Reason - Think Small
You think way too small. You are constantly looking only a day or a week ahead instead of years ahead. Because of this, you never get anywhere, and you never lead; you always follow.

"Stop! Don't buy a domain name until you read this book first."
From the Author...
I’ve always been fascinated and entertained by fun, memorable domains names. Well, not just the domains, but the actual businesses and the ROI behind them as well. If a domain name is used well together with a creative idea, you can create a killer marketing campaign that can skyrocket your sales, leads and publicity for your business or brand.
And that my dear reader is the entire short premise of this book.
It’s brilliant really. Think about it. For the low cost of under $10.00, you can build an explosive, and memorable creative marketing campaign that will get customers to remember who you are.
It doesn’t get simpler than this, or cheaper.
Using a domain name to market your new idea, or your business, or to review an old project or whatever, is simply a smart thing to do. This book is written to not only inspire you into taking action, but also to help you understand how others are doing it and how you can do it too.
But Is It Really A Marketing Plan?
By no means is the $7.95 Marketing Plan a real marketing plan. My apologies to all the MBA’s out there who fell of your chairs when you saw the title of this book. Of course it's not a "real" marketing plan in the true definition. (Frankly, we think those are overrated in my most cases anyway).
However, If you’re so inclined to be one of those people who feel the need to have a full marketing plan in place then I highly recommend you do that. You're just not going to get that kind of crazy talk here where we do things willy-nilly (that's a highly technical term for half-assed).
For me, well, I’m more of a “let’s throw it up there and see if it sticks” kind of marketing guy. Not only does this allow me to move faster than well, everyone else, but it also allows me to fail more often than most. And to me, failure is just another step toward success. So if you’re like me, be warned, moving ahead on frivolous marketing campaigns as described in this text can be a risk to your long-term success.
There, I said it. I'm covered now right? I'm sure the MBA's still hate me. But then again in my defense… Doing it my way is way more fun and sometimes, more rewarding.
Especially when you just catch lightening in a bottle and even more so when it only cost you only $7.95. :)
