How To Be Clutch In Stressful Situations

Watch Texas Rangers relief pitching if you want to learn how to NOT be clutch! Wow, I mean come on.  How does that one kid throw 11 balls in a row and walk two SF Giants batters in the 8th inning of Game 2 when the bases are loaded?  It’s absolutely unbelievable how bad the Texas Rangers relief pitching was, and it’s simply due to mental weakness.  Texas going from having a chance down 0-2 in the 8th to losing the game 0-9 is a 100% ass kicking.

I understand how difficult it is to close things out due to competitive tennis.  I’ve blown my share of 5-4, third set leads before, and 9 times out of 10, it’s because my mind broke down.  Tennis, like many one-on-one sports is a complete mind bend.  I started worrying and thinking about all the “what ifs”.  What if I shank the ball when going for it?  What if my calves start cramping?  What if he starts catching fire?  As soon as I start filling my mind with doubt, my body follows suite and then before I know it, I’ve blown the lead and lose.

I’ve since been able to calm some nerves that have helped me cross the finish line in tight situations before.  Here are some tips for keeping your head in the game.

Site Review: An Innovative Way To Buy And Sell Solutions Online

There’s a new site called which smartly allows people with questions to buy solutions and sellers to sell their solutions.  The site is very well designed and easy to use.  One of the main draws for sellers is that you can sell your solutions over and over again, earning a passive income stream for life.  Sounds great!  The real question is, will people go there to pay for answers?

The main thing the site lacks is credibility of the sellers.  It’s one thing to take advice online without having to pay for it.  It’s another thing to actually spend money for advice.  A brief glance shows that solutions are being sold for anywhere between $2 to $10.  That’s not a lot, but it’s $2 to $10 more than what many people will pay thanks to the invention of Google, Bing and other search engines out there.


Even Millionaires Can’t Resist Free!

It’s been a hectic second week back after labor day and I’m so encouraged by what I’m seeing in the economy.  It’s as if the world decided to suddenly get back to work after a long dormant summer.

The one tip I want to leave you guys with is that no matter how rich your client, your boss, or your prospect is, they cannot resist free.  It doesn’t matter whether you take them out to lunch, buy them a drink, take them to a baseball game, or send them a book.  He or she can be worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and that small $20 gesture will do the world for you!

You may think it’s odd that you are giving something to someone who can afford anything, but you are mistaken.  Those who are richer than you and can afford anything are generally the ones who are always giving.  Hence, as soon as you give them something, you’ll stir up their appreciation that they never knew they had.

In the spirit of free, here are some of the posts out there which do just that.

On A Mission To Refinance America

Recently, I’ve been on a mission to tell anybody who will listen to refinance their mortgage.  I get nothing in return, just the satisfaction of knowing that someone who isn’t a rate hawk like me can get a nice kick in the pants to save some money every month for the next 5-to-30 years of their lives.  Nobody gave me a kick in the pants when I locked in my refi, which is why I had to pay 0.125% higher than I should have because I was unsure and waited a little too long.

Banks have promotions all the time, and your duty as a borrower and saver is to identify which banks are offering the most attractive terms at any given moment.  That bank is Citibank, with mortgage rates often 50 basis points (0.5%) cheaper than any competitor out there for 5/1 and 30-year mortgage products.  Citibank is on a rampage to build up their loan book again.  As patriots, it’s our duty to spread the word and make sure we don’t fall off a cliff again!
