1) Career Change - Blog On To Google AdSense Secrets (Don't Miss This!)

151558-247541-thumbnail.jpg Discover the Google AdSense Secrets you can't afford to miss!  

A quick shuffle around Google's Annual Accounts Information for the SEC reveals that Google is paying it's publishers MORE than it is getting in income from it's advertisers!  So what? 'She's not on her blogging hobby-horse again is she?' I hear you ask.

Well, this 'Blogging Queen' got a cheque (v tiny) from Google AdSense this morning! (shown here - suitably BLANKED) and this golden money-making 'hands-free' income opportunity may not last forever!

So now is the time to change your career and create a blog, sign up with Google AdSense and fill it with highly optimised content!

You will learn to
'Blog On' to Sky-Rocket your click-through ratios, increase your Earnings per Click and easily pay for all those little monthly extras that tend to add up! In fact, every page is bursting with hard-to-find Google AdSense tips, tricks and proven strategies - gleaned whilst researching my book - 'Blog On To A Career Change,' from successful (and expensive) AdSense Masters.

Play by the rules. Read. Apply. And don't forget to send me the pictures of your cheques.

2) Career Change - Transform Your Life On The BBC

ist1_508527_blue_eye.jpgThe BBC have asked me to source some people for them who are transforming their lives. The programme they are making takes one person and follows them as they start a new life for themselves. This can be anything from relocating to the countryside to starting a new job.  The idea is that the programme follows them for two weeks at the beginning of February and sees how they settle into their new lives.

If you are interested in taking part, then give me a call +44 121 706 1623 or email:

3) Tom Peters and Reader's Digest

ist1_252771_breeze.jpgAs we say in Yorkshire, "I am absolutely made up!"

I received a comment today, from one of our colonial cousins that describes my content and style as 'Tom Peters meets 'Readers Digest.' LOL.

Things could be wilder - check out
Ling's Contract Cars' Nuclear Missile and hysterically good web site. Tell her I sent you and I might get some noodles/Yuan/wrapped polo mints or a part in her next movie. Can't wait.

3) Career Change - Beware - Non Average Job Salaries!

151558-244180-thumbnail.jpgAccording to the Society of Human Resource Managers, US, 53% of all job applicants lie to some extent on their resume. What if you have been 'economical with the truth' on your 'home-made' resume/cv and, as a result - have been offered an outrageous salary? It happens!

I guess the natural reaction would be to say that being 'Overpaid' is on balance a superior position but in fact, I believe in practice it is almost without exception a damaging situation for all concerned.

Imagine you were given a hundred thousand spondulicks rise in pay because the recruiters believed (perhaps from your fake resume) that you were fully capable of handling a national emergency. (see Malcolm Brown's outing)

At first it would be such a thrill wouldn't it? Especially when you got your first salary cheque and found that you were paying more tax than you'd ever earned in a month. (You could pay off the credit cards with relish. 'Take that!: Bank of Scotland. Eat me!: Virgin: The end is nigh!: Barclays) Then what? You could plan a holiday - if they'd let you take a holiday!

You would know however that at any minute of the day or night, someone might see 'The Emperor's new clothes' and raise the alarm. Could you live with that?

Your employer is watching every move you make in anticipation of your 'Doing something', to justify the outrageous fee thay have paid you. They are becoming so impatient and critical that you wonder if they would have anytime for Superman, nevermind your increasingly limited ability to 'make things happen'.

Colleagues are jealous of your limelight and are slipping 'innocent' sounding comments about you into everyday chats with the boss, like 'banana skins' on steps. They're NOT out to get you. They are just being helpful.

The morale is: Avoid the trap - find out what you are worth BEFORE you negotiate your salary and if for whatever reason they offer a salary crazily in excess of your wildest dreams, ask if you can 'Sleep on it.' This will 'fix' the sum in people's minds.

Then, overnight, you can decide whether they were genuinely enthusiastic about your potential or compensating you in advance. If the former, you can come up with a performance-related bonus system that will bring you within range of earning this fee, whilst taking 'home' a salary that is commensurate with your talents.

Sensibly offer this arrangement at your next meeting and you might see a sigh of relief AND renewed respect for your judgement.
