If you’ve ever read Seth Godin’s great little book, Purple Cow, you’ll know what I’m doing right now…sneezing!

I’m a sneezer.  I find stuff that makes me say “Wow!” and then I SNEEZE.  I let other people know about it.

So anyway, lots of people already know about this remarkable product, but my fellow Jackalope, Chris Brown, sent me an email recently that had a really cool screen shot with annotations in it.  I zapped back a reply and said, “Dude, how did you do that?”

To which he wittily replied, “Jing.”

“Jing?” I said?

“Yep,” he said, “Jing Project“.

OK.  I visited the Jing Project site (, did the quick download and now I can send out great looking screen captures anytime I need to.

Check it out and see if you don’t think of at least 23 ways to use this in your business and online life right away.  Oh, and the best part about it…it’s free.  Gosh.

Here’s a quickie screen shot I made of Seth Godin’s website and then cropped only the part of the image I wanted to share with you.  Then, I pointed an arrow, did a highlight and typed in a short message.

Sorry to have been absent with new posts for a while!  Things have been busy.

Even with all the crazy times in the mortgage world, I’ve been doing plenty of business with folks who are taking advantage of the lower prices to get screaming deals on homes.

Anyway, here’s a little encouraging story by video.  I don’t sell stuff on the Jackalope Club very much, so just realize that I’m excited to share this with you.

Check it out…


PS…I find myself getting an average of about a phone call or email PER DAY from past clients or referrals.  Sure, in today’s tight market, I can’t do a loan for every one of them, but…the phone is ringing!
