Ana Marie Cox is the senior political correspondent for MTV News, conducts the “Talk” interviews in The New York Times Magazine, and founded Wonkette.

“When people are sending me hate mail or threats, one defense I have against that is ‘you don’t know me.’ You know? That wasn’t something I always was able to say. As I’ve become a stronger person, it’s been easier for me to be like, ‘The person they’re attacking, it’s not me.’”

A. Merc Rustad | Later, Let’s Tear Up The Inner Sanctum  

Still in the hospital. Radiation burns suck. Mom came to see me, though, which was nice. She probably had to argue with that dick of a boss she works for to let her off early. You’d think since I nearly died because superheroes were fighting above my school that I’d get some sort of benefits or medical insurance, but noooo, it’s all on me and Mom to foot the hospital bills because fights are not a novelty anymore. | Copyright 2017 by A.

Minisode Monday #40 | Skill vs. Talent  

If something can be learned, it is a skill. If it's innate, it's a talent. The reality: most so-called talents are skills in disguise, so stop making excuses that you're not talented enough to do things and skill up!

Welcome to Minisode Monday, where we kick off the week with something quick and actionable -- to make you more magnetic and effective -- that you can implement right away. Let's get to it!

The Cheat Sheet: The concept of "talent" is overrated. If something can be learned, it is a skill. If it's innate, it's a talent. A lot of so-called talents are really skills in disguise. If even one person can learn something through study, coaching, and effort, it's learnable -- therefore, a skill. Next time you put off an activity because you think you're not "talented" enough, try to determine if you're just using it as an excuse. Maybe you avoid shooting hoops with your coworkers on lunch break because you think they're all so much more talented than you. While it might be true that you suck at basketball, it's a skill you can improve with practice. If you want to learn the skill of systematically attacking belief systems, building confidence, and forming personal and professional relationships we invite you to take the Art of Charm Challenge by clicking here, or text CHARMED to 33444. Also be sure to check out our Social Capital Intensive here! Let us know about how you put today's Minisode Monday into practice!

#147: How to Ask Better Questions and Get Better Business Results with Marie Forleo  

Today I’m talking about the ONE THING that could be holding you back in your business.

This is a real obstacle that can STALL your business growth.

I know this because it stunted my own growth.

Today I’m talking about the low-value bullsh*t questions you ask yourself that make you feel stuck. These are the questions that suck the soul out of you and can make you feel that you are not cut out for this entrepreneurial life.

The scary thing is that you likely don’t even know you’re doing it! But if you feel discouraged by your progress and “not enough” in your business, you are for sure doing it.

It’s time to find some new, alternative questions, don’t you think?

To help me tackle this very important topic, I’ve asked my own mentor and former business coach (and one of my favorite guests!), Marie Forleo, to help me make this into something extremely tangible and actionable for you.

I put five “low-value” questions—the kind that make your heart sink—in front of Marie and I asked her to turn them into questions that will lead you down the road to bigger results and successes. And boy, did she deliver. We also have some fun in the process, so take a listen here.

Before we dive into those 5 crucial low-value questions and their empowered high-value counterparts, one last note: Marie has released a free video training series—and it’s exceptional.

It answers the question I hear ALL THE TIME: “How do I know I’m working on the right strategies and focusing on the right things to make my business work?”

So this has become a must-watch for me, and my students.

Here are the five questions Marie is making over in today’s podcast:

LOW VALUE QUESTION #1: What if no one buys what I'm selling?

LOW VALUE QUESTION #2: What if they think I'm a fraud?  

LOW VALUE QUESTION #3: I don’t have enough __________ (experience/time/money/know-how/exposure) so how can I possibly compete against X?

LOW VALUE QUESTION #4: I’m too far behind! Why didn't I get into this online marketing game earlier?

LOW VALUE QUESTION #5: This is taking too long. Why am I not finding success more quickly?

Check out the NEW high-value questions here—and then starting USING them to shift your mindset to get bigger results in all you do.

Let’s get rid of the limiting beliefs and negative self-talk that may be holding you back—time to get inspired and raise your business game, for good.

Self-Acceptance Doesn't Suck  

It can suck to be on the receiving end of the advice, "just accept it."

However, whether you’re facing something stressful or uncomfortable, or you’re interested in being more mindful, thoughtful and present in the world, self-acceptance is the key starting point.

The Enormous Lie About Modern Life (You Likely Believe)  

Once you hit your mid-twenties, everything starts beginning to suck. Your favorite band? Not as good as when they first came out. Favorite hangouts? All gone to shit since all the young people started showing up and ruining everything. The world? Basically a day away from total anarchy.Even the idea of time begins to suck. The present is somehow always the worst and no matter how bad your life was 5, 10 years ago– it all seems tinted with rose-colored glasses. Sure you were bored all the time, had no way of communicating with people who weren't your neighbors and loved Hootie and the Blowfish, but man the 90s were the absolute peak of human existence, right? Not really.Somehow humans have this bias that makes them think the world is always at the brink of complete collapse and that things were better before...before AIDS and Ebola started killing everybody; before all the bees disappeared; before crime took over the streets, when you could leave your front door open all day and the criminals would tip their hats and say, "good morning!"We're here to say this way of thinking is wrong and completely ignores all of the amazing advancements humanity is continuing to make every day. It's just you don't hear about them because the headline "Cancer Deaths Slowly and Steadily Dropping" isn't as flashy as "IT'S ALL BURNING DOWN MAN, DON'T EVEN BOTHER!"On the podcast this week, Jack O'Brien is joined by Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) to talk about how we're neither going to hell nor are we in a hand basket. Poverty, war and disease are at all time lows, all you have to do is look away from the news to see it.Our next live podcast is on Saturday, February 11th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles. Just in time for Valentine's Day, join Jack O'Brien, Michael Swaim and Teresa Lee as they welcome Dr. Christopher Ryan, author of Sex at Dawn for a discussion about love, relationships and why our sex lives now bear no resemblance to the way our ancestors got down.

Gambierna drar en suck av lättnad: Richard Myrenberg i Gambia  

Utrikeskrönika den 26 januari 2017. Kigali. Kigali torsdag. Det vi lördags eftermiddag som jag fick information om att något var på gång på flygplatsen i Banjul, Gambias huvudstad. Jag hade befunnit mig där ett antal dagar för att följa dramat kring Yahya Jammeh, landets starke man och diktator i mer än två decennier. Påtryckningarna var enorma, och allt pekade på att han skulle ge med sig efter valförlusten i början av december förra året. Men när? Jag sprang ut på de öde gatorna, alla turister hade lämnat landet några dagar tidigare, men lyckas ändå hitta en taxi. Jag bad honom skynda sig, det verkar som om Jammeh drar härifrån, sa jag. Men att få en gambier att köra fort, ja det låter sig helt enkelt inte göras. Här hostar man fram i gamla mercor i 45 kilometer i timmen, max. Det är som det vore oartigt att lägga in tvåan och köra om. Och kanske är det ändå bra. Med tanke på den omfattande konsumtionen av ganja, dvs marijuana - jag hade redan åkt med ett antal chaufförer som rökte i bilen - så var det nog bra att vi inte höll autobahn-hastighet. Under resan ut hann jag fundera över denna intensiva nyhetsperiod. Till exempel min debut i tv-kanalen al-Jazeera där jag intervjuades om läget. Det gick bra, men jag glömde eller hakade upp mig på ett viktigt ord, som jag tjatat om i varje sändning - Ecowas. Denna regionala samarbetsorganisation i Västafrika som varit en stor spelare i det gambiska dramat. Hade det inte varit för Ecowas militära och diplomatiska påtryckningar så hade nog Jammeh fortfarande suttit vid makten - i strid mot alla regler. Men nu hade styrkor gått in från Senegal och i Dakar stod nigerianska flygstridskrafter redo att agera om Jammeh inte gav med sig. Samtidigt hade organisationen, efter det att tidsfristen gått ut, skickat in dem som stod Jammeh närmast, presidenterna från Guinea och Mauretanien, för att övertyga den envise mannen, att det här: det går inte längre. Ecowas hantering av hela krisen kommer att närstuderas av afrikakännare och statsvetare under lång tid framöver. Den flexibla kombinationen av hårda militära muskler och mjuka diplomatiska samtal gav utdelning, utan att våld behövde användas. Det visade sig att jag hann i ganska god tid till flygplatsen ändå. Jag och andra kollegor lyckades ta oss ut på plattan där ett litet jetplan väntade. Efter någon timme kom så kortegen med skottsäkra bilar, sirener och limousiner. Sedan gick det fort. Jammeh ställde sig vid ett litet podium och lyssnade på militärorkestern som spelade Gambias nationalsång, sedan begav han sig med raska steg in i planet och viftade med koranen som en sista hälsning. Därefter kom ögonblicket som så många gambier väntat så länge på - planet lyfte i mörkret, vi såg bara de blinkande lamporna försvinna. Gambier som jag träffade där berättade om tortyr, mord och försvinnanden av oliktänkande. Hur alla var rädda att kritisera Jammeh, att det fanns angivare överallt. Hur han systematiskt stal, ja, plundrade landet på pengar och resurser. Hur han levde ett liv i lyx och flärd. Den klassiska bilden av den starke afrikanske ledaren. Många finns kvar, men nu är en av dem borta från makten. I samma ögonblick som Jammeh försvann i skyn, var det som en suck av lättnad gick igenom landet. Redan i taxin på väg därifrån märktes det. Chauffören i jättelik rastamössa sjöng glatt med i Beres Hammonds reggae-klassiker. Han verkade nöjd. Gambierna kan börja andas igen. Richard Myrenberg, Afrikakorrespondent

TPP202: How to invest in 2017 and what to look out for  

In this week's episode we're going to look at how to invest in 2017, which is a great follow up to last week's 'where to invest in 2017' podcast.

Rob B the radio star & a news of a new RMP office

We're also bowing down to a new radio star in our midst - Rob B has been appearing on local radio in Liverpool. He's also been 'up north' looking in and around Warrington for the second RMP office - exciting stuff!

Rob D - getting things done

Rob D has had a great week too though and has been making some serious headway into writing his new book which is going to be all about lettings and management. A HUGE thank you to everyone who took up the challenge and sent over their tips, the book will be all the stronger for your input!

The Property Hub Magazine - landing now

There's a cat on the front cover, what's not to like? Subscribers will be receiving their copies very soon, and we can promise you it's a great one.

The Property Hub Meetups - next week

It's nearly time for The Meetups again and Rob B will be heading to join Roxane and the Richmond Hubbers, while Rob D will be in Stratford, East London. Find your nearest Meetup here and head along.

What's on the agenda for 2017?

Negative Media

The media just love a good dose of doom and gloom, particularly if it is property investment based. It hasn’t happened yet, but we are giving you some advanced notice. It will happen this year and if you’re not careful could suck you in. When the media gets negative we get excited, this is when the best opportunities arise. 

Tax Changes

We have covered this in some depth in the following episodes -

The upshot is bad news for landlords who have been in the game for a long time, not so bad for new investors because they can plan.

Lettings Fee Ban

The government has just confirmed consultation will begin in a few months time, with the outcome to be announced later this year. You might not notice changes immediately after implementation, but we expect see a trend of letting agents increasing their fees to landlords.

PRA - Prudential Regulation Authority

Sounds complex, but basically all this is means is mortgage companies increasing their stress test levels. Will impact investors in the southeast, investors in the north won't notice the changes.

Article 50

Uncertainty and fear are most likely to be on the menu (again). This will spook some amateur investors, but actually the effect of brexit hard or soft will be felt years down the line.

What should you do and how should you prosper?

Avoid London Remember your goal, don’t get lost in the noise Ignore the media and most of your friends Take advantage of any uncertainty Get your tax affairs in order Get practising your smug face for a few years time Resource of the week

Photo Splash  is this weeks ROTW and is a great fun free app which is perfect for creating some fun images.

We're social -

We're making big efforts to become more social this year, and we'd love you to join in the fun.

Episode #301 – Secrets From The $100k Meeting - Part 2 of 3  

The 3 steps to build a cult…

Today’s episode is part 2 of a 3 part series of Russell speaking at a $100k event where he taught about the psychology of funnels.

Here are some of the things you will hear in part 2:

The three things you need to build a culture or a following. Why having a new opportunity is the most important part of building a culture. And what the difference is between an Opportunity Switch and an Opportunity Stack.

So listen below to find out how to build a cult following.


Russell Brunson: My next book I'm working on now, it's called Expert Secrets and it's really about building a cult, to be completely honest. I don't ... Well, we call it cult-ure. If you get through my inner circle [inaudible 00:29:13], we have big things about, "Hey, we've got to build a cult." Sure. As I was preparing for this book, I started studying, I got super deep in to cults. I wanted to understand how they work and why they work and so I was reading all the amazing books on cult dynamics and you know, just totally geeked out on it. After looking at a whole bunch of things, I'm like, "What's the pattern?" The pattern I found for every single cult is this. Three things. Number one, every single cult has an attractive character. A charismatic leader. Whatever you want to call it, right? Typically, for most of you guys, that's you in the business. There's somebody who's like leading the march, right?

What's interesting is, I'll go through these ... This is true for negative cults and positive cults. It's the exact same for Hitler as it was for Christ. It's the exact same for Hillary as Trump. It's fascinating, you start looking at it. Every mass movement across time, follows this exact same pattern. One is the attractive character. Number two, in to bring their people in to a future cause mission. This is where we're going. This is the plan. This is what's happening. That's number two.

The thing I want to spend the most time on, because this is the key to everything, is they always offer people a new opportunity. Okay? When Christ came, what was the new opportunity he offered? He said, "Look, we've been doing a lot. Moses is doing all these kind of things. That's gone away. No longer do you have to do animal sacrifices. Now we're switching over to, you come to me with a broken heart and contrite spirit. It's different." Hitler came. World War One, Germany got all this oppression, all these kind of things and said, "Look, we're not going to try that. I'm not going to help you guys to solve this issue and pay our debts off. We're going to freaking take this thing over and we're going to get this new opportunity, new Germany. It is a new opportunity."

What most of us are doing, is we create products, we call these in our, in my world they call them urb products. Products that will make you better, smarter, happier, faster. That's the worst possible thing you could do. Okay? We also have these improvement offers. Improvement. Same thing. Improvement offers or ER offers. If you were selling an improvement offer to somebody, I'm going to help you to improve. What are the things that they have to admit before they give you money?

Improvement offers are the worst possible things on earth and if your product's like, "Yeah, my product makes you smarter, it makes you stronger, it makes you faster, it makes you better, it makes you happier, it makes you sadder, it makes you ..." If you can tie an er to it, that's why your business sucks. To be completely honest. Okay? This is the biggest problem most people have, is that ... How many of you guys are looking and you're like, "Crap, I have an improvement offer, to help you become better,"? Right?

Russell Brunson: That's the biggest problem. People do not want to get better. Perry [Beltzer 00:32:03] was telling me this. He said, "2% of the world has ambition." 2% of the world wants to become better. 98% of the world do not want to become better. As soon as you position what you're selling as an improvement offer, 98% of the world just left. You've lost 98% of your market instantly. Now you're selling to 2% who actually want to become better. Way harder to do. Okay? If you want to get a mass movement and you want to build a cult share of people that give you money, it comes down to this. It's creating a new opportunity. That's what people want. Everyone wants a new opportunity.

The question comes back, how do I create a new opportunity. I was looking at all the different opportunities that we looked at. New opportunity. They are basically all new opportunities can be broken down in to one of two things. Number one, we call it opportunity switch. Number two is an opportunity stack. Most of your offers ...
