5 Cool Taxi and Bus Ads

22 Dec

A taxi or a bus is a fantastic outlet to advertise your goods. Commercial drivers are well aware of this and use their vehicle all the time to earn some extra dough by letting brands use their car. You can do this the standard way or go all out and make some special of it. Here is 5 examples of companies which chose for the latter:

1. Using the tire as a camera lens

2. ‘At the Beach’

3. Keeping the city warm

4. The lobster bus

5. Sopranos taxi ad, good way to bring attention to an ad 🙂

Millionaire Fastlane Review

30 Jun Millionaire fastlane review

Before writing this review, I read both “The Millionaire Fastlane” and the newest, updated version of “The Four Hour Workweek.” Some people believe 4HWW to be better due to the addition of outsourcing references. I read it with the expectation that it would give solid information about how to create wealth, but it did not deliver. Instead, it demonstrates one method of building up a particular type of income without having to work long hours to profit.

On the other hand, “The Millionaire Fastlane” does not outline a particular method for making money. It is not an instructional manual for Adsense, affiliate programs or any other small business idea. That information is already covered in dozens of other books, on hundreds of websites and blogs all over the internet.

The book is an inspirational directive about how to achieve millionaire status well before retirement age. Imagine being in the financial situation of someone like Mark Zuckerberg? Someone who achieved this kind of wealth while still young wrote the book, and he shares all his ideas and information about how to truly get rich quickly. The book is about building wealth, not just making money.

Anyone who is looking for small business ideas, or how to set up an income stream or two on the internet should buy a different book. If you want to learn about affiliate programs or internet marketing or buying into a franchise, there are 1,000 other resources – many of them free – that can help you travel down that road.

Those resources will not help you find answers to some of the most important questions of all:

  • Is even getting into affiliate marketing worth it to begin with?
  • Is it possible to achieve wealth while working a regular job?
  • What roads should I take if I want to get wealthy as quickly as possible?

The book “Millionaire Fastlane” is worth millions, but only if you put into practice all the lessons it teaches so clearly.

This Dorm Room looks Incredible

2 May

It’s obvious this kid is a genius.  I have no idea how you would even begin to set something like this us, and to go along with his technical prowess, he made it incredibly practical but also hilarious.  The question is, does that Romantic mode ever get any use?  About 3 minutes in I was starting to have that bad feeling that in a few years Sorkin would be writing snappy dialogue for the latest movie about a boy genius who never get any ass and now is a huge dick to everyone.  Four minutes in, on party mode, with blasting Levels?  Come on.  This kid is banging girls every night.  Awesome stuff.   Worth noting that the background music for the first section was the same that was used for the equally incredible-looking google glasses video a few weeks back.  Lends itself perfectly to cool technology videos I guess.

Revel Casino in AC Looks Amazing

27 Mar

This summer’s AC trips just got even better.  Not sure how I haven’t heard about this but I guess I haven’t been since last summer–all throughout the winter, a $2.4 billion casino has been being built on the beach, strictly to host my soon-to-come craps heaters.  Here are the stats:

“With a 20-acre footprint, the 47-story Revel – the tallest building in Atlantic City – covers 6.3 million square feet and features more than 1,800 rooms and suites, all with ocean views.  It will have 14 restaurants, many run by celebrity chefs, including Jose Garces and Marc Frangione, 55,000-square feet of retail, a 31,000-square-foot spa, two nightclubs and a dayclub, 10 pools, and 160,000 square feet of meeting space.”

Revel opens late May.  I can’t wait.  Summer needs to get here.

 

2012 Startups Part II

9 Jan

Last week, Don’tTazeMeBro posted a link to another blog’s article on 15 Startups to Watch in 2012.  This week, I’m featuring 3 startups that I personally will be following in 2012.  These 3 upcoming startups are online websites that offer free services I can see myself using in the nightlife, transportation, and gym industries. 

Coming into the new year, everyone has their resolutions they try to stick to.  Why you have to use a new year as a reason to declare a resolution opposed to any other day beats me.  I personally don’t believe in New Years Resolutions.  However, Continue reading

15 Startups to Watch in 2012

5 Jan

Since we here at NSD are spontaneous and creative types that can create a website based on girls in skirts on a whim one slow Friday afternoon at work (and subsequently grow it into a multi-million dollar corporation…in 2013), we are always keeping an eye out for the next big thing in the startup world.  Of the 15 on this list, I’m most excited about food.ee, YayTalent, and Happily.  Food.ee especially is a good one–there really isn’t anything besides FourSquare and Yelp for people who love restaurants to tell their social networks about places.  Both FourSquare and Yelp are too broad though, with way too much going on, and neither have all of the functionality and scope that food.ee looks to have.OP  Continue reading

American Express Gift Chain

7 Dec

Today I received a promotion from American Express.  During the holidays, they are offering incentives to shop online at select stores for the opportunity to receive a free gift from American Express.  The promotion is available for up to 10 gifts and include gifts from $2 to $500.  Gifts may be statements credits, gift cards, etc.  Here is how it works…

1.  Register any eligble AMEX card.

2.  Spend $25 or more at participating online stores up until 12/21/11.

3.  You will receive an email with your free gift from AMEX.

I’m not going to go out of my way to purchase anything to receive a gift from AMEX, but since the holidays are in season, there is a chance I buy from one of the participants anyways.  Only the first 250k applicants that submit their card are eligible, so you might as well register your card just in case.  Particpating retailers include: Continue reading
