Indian Man Sues GM Cause his Car is NOT a Goat and Wins!..??

An Indian man sues GM because his car is NOT a mountain goat or at least doesn't preform like one as stated by GM. I assume that mountain goats are perceived as being at the pinnacle of off-road performance in India. I guess this guy has been suing GM for 3 years trying to get retribution for his car that broke down in only 1 foot of water in 2005. I personally have heard of mountain goats that can go through at least twice that amount of water with out a single problem. I get where this guy is coming from, goats are way better than cars. Why would anyone say that a car is as good as a goat. He won the lawsuit after his case made it all the way to the Indian Supreme Court. GM bought back his car and paid for the lawyer's fees. He should have just bought the goat in the first place.


Julian Smith, a british saxophonist got a little crazy with his Jeep Cherokee and a group friends. They created a cool beat just using car noises. The result was nothing short of Stomp-o-riffic. And below Smith's beat there's another take on car noise hip hop with Snob Scrilla and a Toyota Yaris. Check it.

Building and Growing a Business- Stephen Pierce

I have been trying to learn about internet marketing and doing business online for a little while now. Believe me there is a lot of crap out there. But this guy, Stephen Pierce seems to be the real deal. There is some good solid advice here on improving your sales process and growing your business.

I made some notes as I listened to this rather lengthy video(well over and hour). I will post them below. I don't know how long this link will work, but I thought it was a very good presentation. I can appreciate good solid, grounded advice as apposed to a lot of the overly hyped and exaggerated stuff you will find.(especially in the world of internet marketing)

My notes:

Vince Lombardy- If you are not keeping score you are just practicing. (metrics, numbers, accounting for business)

Don't do what you can't measure.

Only automate something that is already working (making you money)

If you try to be strong everywhere you will be strong nowhere.

Three things you need to have success in anything.

* Focus
* consistency
* patience
