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.

Why Most People Die at Age 25? And what can I do about it

Watch the video and leave your answer in the comments below (one lucky winner will win a virtual high five and a chance to give high fives to 5 other less lucky winners)

Life means growth. No growth means there is no life.

Here’s the quote:

Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75

+++

Growth means that someone somewhere did something for the first time, and then kept doing it. Someone somewhere got out of their comfort zone, someone took a risk — for growth only happens when some of the old is replaced with some of the new. When one learns, one grows.
