Interesting Questions About Email List Building Best Practices

Maria asks…

Do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 know a private trainer who can change my life in Los Angeles or even out of state/country?

I am 25 years old and scared for my life. I have always been insecure with my body and the physical abuse from my mom certainly didn’t help. I feel closed and life is definitely passing me by. People in America have problems being overweight, mine is the complete opposite. I am thin and the insecurity blocks me from wearing shorts and a shirt for the world to see. This may seem obscure to some of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势, but my insecurity really hurts. I know I take my life for granted, but what good is life when you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can’t live with it. I feel that 6 months of pure gruel training and eating can change my life. This may be easy for some but difficult for me. People will say go to the gym, but my insecurity blocks me from going. What I truly want is to go away and train and grow my body, my soul, my life. I always dream of that Jean-Claude Van Damme movie where he goes off to Asia and trains like crazy. I know somewhere on this universe someone is willing to help.

Richard answers:

I have been “weight challenged” all my life as well, but maybe not to the degree you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are talking about . . . I am 5′ 8″ and graduated high school weighing 125 pounds. I am now 32 yrs old and still only weigh 130 pounds . . . At least until recently. I recently decided that I FINALLY wanted to finish my karate training and get my black belt. I am currently trying to gain some weight to put on more muscle before my black belt test . . . So far I have gained 8 pounds in maybe two months . . . I made a decision to eat EVERY 4 HOURS, regardless of whether or not I “felt” like eating . . . I have also made it a point to eat food high in protein (peanut butter, tuna, etc) with every meal. The basic idea is to take in more calories than you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are burning off in the course of you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r day. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 do that, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 should start to gain . . . I have been going to the gym some and training karate, but I have been trying to minimize my activity in order to retain more calories. You should try to find a good balance between being active for health and to be physically fit, but not so active as to burn too many calories. You want to gain weight, but you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t want to end up being OVERweight! For the time being, keep “cardio” to a minimum (jogging, cycling, aerobics, swimming, etc). I figure that as I become accustomed to eating more, my stomach will stretch some to accomodate, and I will eventually be able to eat enough food that will allow me to workout a lot and still not burn off too many calories . . . I would also suggest doing push ups and sit ups at 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. In addition, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can use a milk jug filled with sand or water as a dumb bell to do arm curls, deltoid raises, etc. You could also use ankle weights to do leg raises (and possibly practice kicking exercises if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want). A book that I recommend is “Arnold Schwarteneggers Encyclopedia of Body Building” . . . I’m sure you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 don’t expect to become as big as a body builder, but there are principles taught in it that will help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. Also, there is an extensive list of exercises for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to refer to. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have the money you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 could always buy a set of weights and dumb bells and a bar bell for use at you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r 500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势. Also drink plenty of water and get plenty of rest. I hope some of this helps . . . I would love to hear back from you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 to find out what solution ends up working for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and to hear what kind of progress you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 make!

Lizzie asks…

What is the best option after a 3 -year Undergraduate degree in U.S?

I completed a 3 year UG course in Biochemistry which is considered a degree in my country but not in the U.S. I then applied in the U.S as a transfer student (for Psychology) and got admitted in 6 univs.I wish to know if I could have straight away applied for a PhD in Psychology somehow.Thanx

Richard answers:

I’m not sure how the international transfer works, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r best bet is to contact one on the six places and either email or speak with an academic advisor (admissions may be able to help as well). Here are the ‘steps’ to getting a PhD in the US(on average):

Associate’s Degree (this takes about two years and is the lowest of all degrees, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can get one from a junior college, community college, or university…some people get their associate’s from a community/junior and then transfer to a university to get the next level…)

Bachelor’s Degree (this is the degree that most students go for, it takes normally takes four years at an accreditted university)

Master’s Degree (this takes roughly six years, and is usually in preparation for the next step…)

Doctorate (this is the highest level of degree available and takes roughly 8 years to complete)

Each of these degrees build on each other….so when I say that a doctorate takes 8 years that includes getting the rest, but in itself is normally only a 2 year program. Sometimes you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 can go directly from a bachelor’s to a doctorate, but that’s not the typical practice. There are also specialized degrees (like a law degree…which you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 go to Law School for, right after recieving you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r bachelor’s, and takes an additional 3 to 4 years to complete). Sometimes certain things are required before finishing a degree (like a thesis, research, or examination) It is all rather confusing. The best thing to do is determine what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are using you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r degree for (do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to be a psychologist? Or just a therapist? Do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want to go to Medical School? Ecetera) and then go through the program that will get you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 there. If you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 list a particular use for you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r degree, I’ll try to help you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 further :) . Good luck, and hope this confusing answer helps!

Ken asks…

can you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 hypnotize people who already know you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势?

i am studying the power of suggestion, NLP, and basic hypnosis. my questions are: #1, can you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 hypnotize someone who already knows you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r speech patterns/mannerisms (since you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have to fake confidence, among other things)?

#2, would anything about my appearance make it more difficult to hypnotize people? i’ve noticed that most hypnotists are men who command presence and respect, and i wonder if being moderately attractive, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势ng, female, or shorter than my “subjects” would get in the way of controlling their complete focus. please answer only if you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have experience or knowledge to offer.

Richard answers:

As for #1, yes. Many of the people I have hypnotized are people that I have known. While patterns/mannerism can be important, I would put rapport building *MUCH MUCH* higher on the list. Confidence comes with practice. I remember my first time I was nervous as all heck, but now I barely even think about it.

#2, What you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r describing with the way people dress, etc. This are examples of creating the expectation (or setting the stage). Creating the expectation is important. Why do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 think top level business people all wear “power suits”? It creates expectation that they know what they are talking about, and one should listen to what they have to say. While it can be effective, remember everyone doesn’t necessarily respond the same way. I’m sure everyone can think of a time where someone dressed in a “power suit” (think: obnoxious salesperson) and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 were just turned off completely.

The other thing to remember, is you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 need to work with you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r client. I tend to use client rather than subject, since subject tends to be cold/clinical and that they are being “subjected to” hypnosis. That not the typical expectation I want to create. Again, depends on the particular needs of the client.

As for questioning “if being a moderately attractive, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势ng, female, or shorter than my “subjects” could get in the way of controlling their complete focus.” Ask you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势rself this.. Are you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 creating you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r own expectation that this will be a determining factor? I know many hypnotists that are all and none of the factors you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 listed (and everything in between) that are successful.

Make sure you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r clients expectations are realistic. Expecting to be able to “control their complete focus” is not realistic. If they don’t want to focus, they are not going to focus. PERIOD. The question is: As a hypnotist/NLPer, how to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 best facilitate an environment that will assist them to focus better? It’s a collaborative process. I’m not sure the exact environment that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are planning to work in, but that can make a difference.

George asks…

Do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 think privatization is the answer to reducing the bureaucracy in democracy?

Richard answers:

Yes, paying contractors 3 times what you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 pay the bureaucrats to get the same work done makes a crapload of sense.

To some of the other answerers: yes, anarchy is SOOOO much better than democracy.

To John E, in particular: and you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势’ve actually worked in the federal government, and can say this conclusively is true? Because I do work for the federal government, and I can tell you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 right now that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r answer is complete BS.

“Yes, golgafrincham, I can state conclusively that I have worked, and seen the tremendous efficiency.”

I never said it was efficient, did I? That wasn’t the question.

“I only worked from 630 to 430 today (in my real private job), no OTJ breakfast, didn’t eat but 5 minutes lunch on the job.”

Sounds like my day, except I start a half hour earlier and I consciously take a half hour for lunch. And I didn’t / don’t put in for overtime or comp time, because I know I am working for the taxpayer.

“Why, in every federal place I have worked, has the first step been to ‘punch in’. Then its coffee, email, breakfast, shopping online, go get an oil change while on the clock. Maybe you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are in charge of policing it.”

The fact that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 say “punch in” shows how much of a liar you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 are. And funny, both in private and public jobs I’ve held, bringing in donuts (before work, but to be eaten during work time) and making coffee (on the clock) were / are commonly accepted practices. And email is part of my workday, that is just weird that you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 listed it. The rest is according to the individual, although I’ve never seen or heard of anyone getting an oil change on the clock. And, no, I’m not in charge of policing, it, I just know myself and my co-workers have respect, not only for the oath of office we took when we were hired (*), but in respect for the taxpayers (which includes ourselves) that are footing our wages.

In my two years with the federal government, I have never put in for overtime pay, even though I technically work overtime most weeks. And I know several people who put in far more hours than I do, that I know never put in for overtime pay (some of them do put in for comp time). I know in my last two private sector jobs, we had something called “beer-thirty” every Friday, on the clock: can’t do that on a government job. We also frequently had potluck lunches that usually took over an hour, and no one accounted it as a long lunch. I know I can as-built a building in less than a week, or contract someone to do the same job in the same amount of time, and pay them 3 times as much, but only after going through the contracting process to hire them. I know my folks can lay 2,500′ of sewer line for well under half the price of a contractor: we put the contract out last year, had crazy high bids (even in this economy) and opted to do it in house for just that reason.

* Ever take an oath, of loyalty to you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r country, to protect you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势r country’s interests, and to uphold the Constitution, in the private sector? Sorry, NDAs don’t count. My oath of office was pretty doggone similar to the one I took when I joined the Marines back in 1985.

The answer to reducing bureaucracy in a democracy is to dismantle the democracy. A government with an efficient bureaucracy is called a dictatorship. In a democracy, we have oversight, buffers, checks and balances to ensure objectivity and control corruption, and to ensure the bureaucracy does not become more powerful than the politicians. These are all things a dictatorship doesn’t need, a dictator can simply execute someone that makes him unhappy. These are also all things that make the bureaucracy less efficient than it could be (yes, I know that not ALL government bloat is in the checks and balances and oversight, but that is the vast majority of it). And in a democracy, these are all things we must have.

So, you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 have a choice: do you500彩票幸运快三怎么看走势 want a democracy, or not?
