Husband Fail Friday

It’s Friday! Time for another Husband Fail Friday!

This is your opportunity to share silly stories of how your husband pretty much failed you this past week!

Or, if you want to be honest (Mr. Husband) then go ahead and admit what you did and how it was so lame of you to do whatever you did before your wife shows up and does it for you!

Of course, this is a fun and silly activity, so don’t be too serious…

Me first:

This week I squashed my wife’s dream before I even let her finish. I think this is typically a really stupid idea and that I should never do it again because she didn’t like me for a long time.

WordPress Plugin: Featured Post in RSS Feed!

screenshot1Today I’m releasing a very simple WordPress Plugin that’ll allow you to add a symbol and/or text to “call out” a particular set of posts in your reader’s RSS Feeds.

I built this because a good friend, Michael Hyatt, needed something to call out his “Sponsored” posts in RSS Feeds.

So, you could use this for “Featured” posts, “Sponsored” posts, or anything else you’d like to make sure you’re reader’s don’t miss.

screenshot2This is especially important in today’s RSS-reading economy where people scan their feed readers; you’re going to want to make sure they don’t miss your stuff!

A few screenshots of what it might look like with default settings. It’s super easy to use!

Let me know if you have any thoughts and if you use it!



Emotionally-Tied Products


Sometimes I launch products which I have very little invested emotionally; and deployment is as emotionless as eating dry corn flakes.

There are others where it comes as close to “giving birth” as any male will ever come (or as close as I can tell in my extremely large bucket of ignorance). I think the latter was experienced recently.

I’m exhausted.

It can be very dangerous to tie oneself to a product launch. Sometimes it’s just inevitable. But, it can also be extremely rewarding.

You Can Learn Anything if You Really Needed To.

This kid is impressive. He’s learned to speak a number of different languages just so that he could sell his wares more effectively.

Brilliant and obviously very practical and smart.

I think we can learn nearly anything if we really needed to. Not everything, but, a lot of things, especially if your life depended on it…
