Scott Priestley replied to Ryan Brewer's discussion What theme to use? in the group Wordpress websites
"Hey Jeff, Let me disagree with you for a second - I think it does matter which theme you choose for affiliate marketing. It's SUPER important to do A/B split testing, track clickthroughs, etc and a good niche site theme can make that all much…"

Scott Priestley replied to Rob Orr's discussion Ed Dale Shuts Down "The Challenge" - what's your take? in the group My Website Workshop
"I was on the webinar, but got frustrated with all of the psychobabble talk and nothing about The Challenge - I bailed about 30mins in. What are your thoughts? I took it that they wanted to capitalize off Tim Ferris' 4-Hour Chef meme."

"Good luck!! Is this going to be a Niche site or an "Authority" site? I thought my site http://www.edcknifereviews.com was going to be a niche site, but now as I work on it I think I want more from it. Typically, a niche site is one where…"

"Mike, I don't have Alexa toolbar installed and the site is not tech-related. Are you saying that there's no correlation of Alexa rank with site authority or quality of back links, SEO, etc? Is there any value to Alexa rank at all? Do you…"

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I've been a friend of Justin Lukasavige's for a number of years and have followed his business pursuits, which of course led me to Dan Miller and the 48Days movement. I've previously had an account here but it must have gotten deleted for inactivity because I am being asked to sign up again.

I'm a Christ-follower, Husband to Rachel, Daddy to a 26-y/o daughter in the US Navy, 6-y/o Jack and 3-y/o Ellie.

By vocation I am a software project manager but by avocation I am an NRA Firearms Instructor, Range Safety Officer and recruiter. I am also the Editor of a niche website EDC Knife Reviews - a site to provide consumer reviews of great pocket knives for every day carry (EDC) at http://www.edcknifereviews.com

I'm also working on some other niche sites and plan on participating in Rob Orr's Niche Site Challenge.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employed full time and working on various passive income strategies in my free time.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
Personal fulfillment, flexibility, fun and security for my family (not necessarily in that order).
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Losing weight and getting fit with the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge (http://www.teampriestley.com)
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I'll come back to this - I actually just had a 64 page profile created for me that identified my EQ as well as DISC profile. Most of it was spot on, but some of it was situational.

Example:
I prefer to work with others than to be solitary.
I am very social and not at all introverted.
Although I enjoy speaking, I would prefer to deliver written instructions rather than try to teach you verbally.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.goodguyspersonaldefense.com
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
