The Easiest Method of Accepting Credit Cards from your Customers [Doing Business Online]

Receiving online payments from your customers is not as simple as some make it sound. But it is not as complicated either.

And if you are trying to run a digital kingdom from Pakistan, then there are few more hoops that you may have to jump through.

But this is something that is fun to set up, and once you understand how the overall system works, it is going to be easy as well. God willing.

Hunting for the Perfect Camera To record adventure & business videos on

OK, so an interesting turn of events regarding the ‪#‎CameraHunt‬
I MUST decide by tomorrow which camera to get for my videos.
I wanted to first buy a ‪#‎Canon‬ 700D, used. Then a ‪#‎Nikon‬ D3200 (it actually shoots better video and is a LOT lighter and smaller — search YouTube for indepth comparison between the two).

But now I have shifted to buying a GoPro Hero4 Black. Shoots 1080p and even 4K. One of the reason I didnt consider a GoPro was because I needed to shoot a “business-like” video once a week… and I thought that the GoPro couldn’t handle it. But research shows that GoPro Hero4 Black produces great results, very polished. No depth of field, no bokeh etc, sure… but for a guy like me, a GoPro type action cam makes most sense. I know that the GoPro would be my “second” camera anyways, and I didn’t consider it seriously enough because I hadn’t seen the latest Hero4. (Thank you Kamil for the heads up on that).

But now, the ‪#‎Sony‬ Actioncam 4k is beating the ‪#‎GoPro‬ on most indept review sites. The GoPro fan boys (almost like Apple fanboys — arrgghhh!!) can be seen in the comments. But the Sony seems a better option for my adventures, interviews, vlogs and training videos because

  1. it is Sony,
  2. it is a bit cheaper and
  3. there are some manufacturing defects in GoPro that keep coming up on YouTube (search for GoPro Hero4 problems to see what I mean).

So now, I am looking for a Sony Actioncam FDRX1000-V 4K and no one is selling that in Pakistan!! Cant find a single site selling it online!!

Nisbat road here I come!? Perhaps.
“I am confused” doesn’t even come close to defining it. But I am praying, istakhara even… and am not worried. InshAllah, by tomorrow, I must decide.

Sony Actioncam 4k or GoPro Hero4 Black? Will people who sell them here offer some sort of warranty if things go wrong?

I was recently asked this question, and I quote:

“I hope you can shed some light as they are directly related to how you do what you do.

1. You earn via various means. You have a blog, sell e-books, cakes, affiliate marketing, you give speeches and talks etc. Thats great! What I want to know is, which of these would you prefer on the others, if you had to choose just one as the most lucrative source of income?

2. Please answer #1 again, this time picking the one that gives you the most overall satisfaction or a sense of achievement.

Looking forward to your response. Thank you.”

How to Generate $10,000 a Month from a Brand New Blog The 10% of Neil Patel's Challenge

cropped-focus-on-business.jpg

Neil Patel is an SEO expert, an entrepreneur and a blogger extraordinaire.

I have learnt a lot about blogging and search engine marketing from his blog over the years.

And he recently announced a “challenge” to earn $100,000 per month from a new blog that he will launch.

Yeah you read that right, 100,000 US dollars per month.

He announced the challenge on his blog, and I quote:

A week ago, I wrote a blog post stating that anyone can generate $100,000 a month in income. To prove it, I told you that I’m going to create a new company and grow it from scratch without leveraging my connections.

In the majority of your comments, you told me you wanted me to create a new company in a space that I had no ties to. So I’m now starting a nutrition blog.

The official start date will be April 1, 2015. And within 12 months, I have to get the blog to generate $100,000 in monthly revenue.

I have, in my naivety and foolish bravado I’m sure, decided to join him in this challenge.

I still rue the day when I “thought” about joining Pat in his Niche Site Duel so many years ago. I never did it, only “thought” about it! Not this time around! Continue reading How to Generate $10,000 a Month from a Brand New Blog The 10% of Neil Patel’s Challenge

5 Steps to make it EASY to talk about money

Thinking about money got me thinking about toasters. You see, I’ve got a question for you: is money the root of all evil?

Aren’t people – people making choices, albeit poor one – are the root of evil? Yes, they use money to “express” their evil… just like guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

And this gets me thinking: if guns dont kill people, people kill people, does this mean that toasters dont toast toast, toast toast toast.

talk about money is difficult

And this I think is absolutely funny. But money on the other hand, is not a funny topic, as you’ll see.
