Value Disconnects

On the web there is a meshing of a virtually unlimited number of value systems. If you can find ways to remove market friction or create things that will be relevant to many different value systems you stand to generate great profits. Search + advertising is one way to leverage others work into a value system of some sorts, but search is still in its infancy. That is why visual search is new and Google is trying so hard to shore up their other revenue streams. Money only has value because people push it hard and powerful organizations standardize it and require it to pay taxes. Value only exists in your mind. At the root of all value systems is a marketer and a belief.

The more your work resembles your own beliefs the easier it is to push it as being authentic because it is. The more time you spend figuring out your own value systems rather than accepting the ones others push the happier you will become and the more you will attract possitive influences in your life.

What things in your life caused the most abrupt changes in your beliefs or value systems? What knowledge or knowledge sources can help you bridge the gap to profit from value disconnects?

"...most abrupt changes..."


"What knowledge or knowledge sources can help..."

The Elite Retreat 2.0.

Sadly, I can't make it to 1.0 (wife due on Nov. 28). Do advise early when the next one will occur. I absolutely believe it would be helpful RIGHT NOW.

The price is a pittance in exchange for the experience.

As much as you and Shoemoney give away for free, I can only imagine what one gets when paying.

"What things in your life caused the most abrupt changes in your beliefs or value systems?"

For me, I think it was when my daughter was born. That made me realize there are more important things than me. Another thing was when my father told me to always question the things I hear and see before making a judgement call. That alone has bailed me out quite a bit :P .

I saw that visual search site a few days ago but it didn't really impress me. Today I saw yet another search engine, the difference was that it talked "go figure". I think this is all nice in the beginning but good old traditional text is always the best.

your keyword research tool is not working, giving lines and lines of errors though you would like to knw.

I've just started a few days ago so my blog isn't indexed by Google yet.

But please review my blogs and comment though. I'd love to hear your feedback.
