Help Others and Forget Yourself

He Who Helps The Most People WINS!

If you haven't noticed, the Internet is CHANGING

When I started online at the end of 2000 (I retired from work), it was easy. Millions were scouring the Internet for any way to make money and all you had to do with put up a little page with big promises to show on a Traffic Exchange and you could have 100 people sign up in a few hours.

Now the best way to catch a little attention so you even have a chance, is to help someone else further their own agenda and hope to foster a relationship with them so they search you out to see what else you do. At least that puts them in the right frame of mind to seriously consider your offer and not just blow it off so they can get back to pushing their own.

I got to thinking about this today when a new contact on ApSense had the familiar "I will add my bio later" on his profile page, so I extended an offer to connect with a quick note that he needed to fix that problem in my invitation.

He accepted, so I sent him a message explaining how much he was missing out by not having a bio, and he replied, "What Is A Bio?".

Ding, Ding !!!

I could never have imagined a sweeter invitation to reach out and help someone, so I opened up my free copy of LibreOffice Writer and using screenshots from my free Jing screen capture utility, I put together a PDF document explaining how it was done.

Then I started thinking how many others on ApSense (or not but should be) might be having the same problem. I know it must be a few, because I have seen that on a lot of profiles.

Bottom Line: I see this as another tool I can use to help many others and it could very likely result in more people viewing my own profile and even sharing my PFD file with others they know. Can you say Viral?

This is not because of my great experience and knowledge that other members do not have, it's more because of my commitment to WIN the game. You Can Do This Too.

It does not take a masters degree, just getting on YouTube and learning how to use free tools to do the same thing, or you can ask me for help.

It may be time to stop burning your time and money by choosing activities to promote your offers that no longer work.

You can see the simple PDF I made at

Have fun,

Warren (oldbuddy) Contreras

I promise you my friend, I put my pants on one leg at a time just like you probably do, but I have been doing this stuff a long time (almost two decades), so it's second nature to me now. You can do it too if you keep at it long enough.

Akbar, don't over complicate things. It simply means I put my right foot in the right leg, then stand on that leg while I put the other foot in the other leg. Not many people are good enough to jump into the air and get both feet in the proper leg without falling on their face.

As my dad would say, a home run hitter doesn't have to tell you they can hit a home run, they just step up to the plate and do it! No tooting your own horn, or claiming to be a Guru, you are just being you!
It's refreshing to see someone who knows what they're doing, steps up to the plate, and knocks it out of the park!
ps - honestly, I hate wearing pants! ;{)
