Fiverr is the world’s largest marketplace for small services costing five bucks. This is a great resource for making some extra cash when you’re broke, or for buying things for your business like video reviews. Give it a look and you’ll be surprised at the services offered.

PayPal is the most widely used method for receiving money on the internet. It can be used to receive payments for small odd jobs or to receive payments as part of an online store. You can get a debit card from them that gives you instant access to the money people send you. They also have a very small device that plugs into an iPhone or iPad enabling you to physically swipe credit cards.

LegalZoom is the place to go for the paperwork you’ll need to file when starting a business.

Lexington Law is a great way to fix your personal credit reports.

Kickstarter offers crowdsource funding. If you need to raise capital for a project, this is the best way to get it.

Wix is an easy, free, and quick way to get a website up for people who know nothing about building websites. When you’re ready to start selling online, you can upgrade to a fully functional online store for under $20.00 per month.

With the click of a button, you can make your work instantly available for purchase on Amazon.com, one of the planet’s biggest online stores.

Fulfillment by Amazon is a great way to outsource all of your shipping. You send one big shipment of your product to their warehouses, and then use their website to direct individual shipments as you get orders.

Chromebook will get you online for under $200.00.

Amazon Mechanical Turk is a great way to make money if you’re broke, and can be a great resource for businesses looking for online labor.

AdWords Express is the basic version of AdWords, designed for the less technically savvy.

PRWeb is a great way to distribute your own press releases. This is an indirect form of advertising.

The Vocus PR Suite is the software that professional Public Relations firms use.

Ted Williams is the homeless guy with the radio voice. Here’s the YouTube video and the Wikipedia page.

Google Analytics is used to see who’s coming to your website and what they are doing.

When You’re Awesome And No One Knows It is a story about violinist Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world, who played in Washington DC, at a Metro station.

Suing For Partial Custody Of Her Vagina

by Drawk Kwast – February 2nd, 2013

Imagine for a moment a man standing in front of a judge, asking for a divorce from his wife, but demanding partial custody of her vagina. The judge would look at the man with disgust, horrified that he thinks he’s entitled to sex with her a few times a week even though they are divorced. Consider however that this is no more insane than a woman standing in front of that same judge and expecting money, her ex-husband’s money, in the form of monthly alimony payments.

First, let me say that I’m NOT talking about child support. I believe that the financial support of children should be a burden equally split between both parents. What I am talking about is an ex-wife behaving like a child and thinking she is entitled to her ex-husband’s money. The very fact that the court proceedings will refer to it as “his” money is the only indicator needed to establish who has rights to it. It’s as simple as the money he earned being his, and the money she earned being hers. He works one job and she works another. If they happen to own a company together, how the money gets divided up needs to be written in the operating agreement. Divorce has no bearing on previously earned income. And if she didn’t work while in the marriage, that was her choice. If I had a jobless old college friend sleeping on my couch, why would anyone think I owed him something after kicking him out? Would it make any difference if he was cooking meals, cleaning my bathroom, and feeding my dog while he was there?

The argument for a woman being entitled to a man’s money after divorce is made to “maintain her standard of living.” Any divorced man knows that phrase all too well. It means that he is legally obligated to give her enough money that she can maintain the same lifestyle as when they were married, and the cost of doing so ensures a lower standard of living for him. Here’s my argument:

If she gets the “same standard of living” so should he. He’s entitled to sex… or at least the cost of replacing that sex to maintain the same standard of living.

If I enter into a contract with a company to replace the roof on my house, and they stop working halfway through, that company is legally obligated to finish the roof. If they stop working, they owe me money to pay someone else to get the job done. In the same way, when a woman agrees to marriage, she agrees to sex “till death do they part.” Given no judge is going to grant her ex-husband partial custody of her vagina, but he should be able to sue her for his losses. She should be paying the bill for every date, vacation, or bottle of champagne he shares with any other woman, because that is the cost he incurs to get the sex she had agreed to. And believe me when I say that the biggest factor in a guy’s “standard of living” is whether or not he’s getting laid.

I believe that a sexual relationship must never become a financial relationship. Any woman who disagrees with me and thinks that sex entitles her to money is a prostitute.

How to Flirt: Three Elusive Concepts

by Drawk Kwast – October 1st, 2012

flirtingYou already know that the world’s best training ground for learning how to flirt with women is Las Vegas. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you also know I’ve lived here for a little over five years. In my time here I’ve seen students progress from shuddering creepy guys, to men who can literally talk the pants off of women. I’ve also been fortunate enough to meet some other Vegas locals, who like me, are professionals at it. I’m about to teach you three elusive concepts that all the pros know about flirting with women.

Concept One: Sarcasm is the opposite of flirting. Sarcasm is saying something good and meaning something bad. Flirting is saying something bad and meaning something good. Understanding the difference is crucial for success. An example of sarcasm would be rolling your eyes as you say, “You’re the smartest girl I’ve ever talked with.” You said something good, but she knows you really think she’s an idiot. An example of flirting would be looking at her with a sly smile and saying, “You seem dangerous. My grandmother told me to avoid girls like you.” You said something bad, but she knows you really think she’s fun. If you do the opposite of flirting, you will get the opposite results.

Concept Two: Flirting isn’t sexual. Flirting is nothing more than playfully talking to a girl you may be interested in, to figure out if you actually are interested in her. Some guys think flirting is sexual, and they will walk up to a girl and say something idiotic, like “Nice ass. Can I try bouncing a quarter off of it?” Remember that the flirting process is the same for her in that she will playfully talk with you, if you seem like a guy she may be interested in, so she can figure out if she is interested in you. If you say anything sexual before she’s interested in you, you greatly hurt your chances that she will become interested in you.

Concept Three: Ambiguity. As things progress, there is a magical grey area between flirting and being overtly sexual. Once you know you’re interested in her and she knows she’s interested in you, the key to angling toward the bedroom is ambiguity. You may say something such as “I like you. You can be my girlfriend for the next 5 minutes.” If she says anything negative (saying something bad and meaning something good) in response to that, you smile and say, “Wow, I’m glad I’ll be out of this relationship in another four and a half minutes,” (saying something bad and meaning something good). “Ah, but we’ll always have the memories.” And just like that, you’re back to flirting. You keep this playful ambiguity going until she says something like “If I’m your girlfriend, I should probably take you home and give you a backrub.”

If you would like to learn more about flirting, have a look at my third book, Magnetic Interactions: Secrets of the Alpha Male Book 3.

Lifting Weight vs. Getting Stronger

by Drawk Kwast – September 11th, 2012

bicep curlsNewcomers to the gym don’t understand the difference between the goals of lifting weight vs. getting stronger. Successful men not only understand the difference but also how to apply this as a powerful metaphor for life in general.

Let’s say that a guy walks into the gym for the first time and decides to start with his biceps. He sees someone else doing standing bicep curls with dumbbells. He watches and thinks to himself, “Looks easy enough, just stand there and lift the dumbbells up.” He grabs the weights and starts to lift. As it gets difficult, he quickly realizes something. If he uses his entire body to flail the weight up, he can lift much more than if he only uses his biceps. There are two things he doesn’t realize, however. The first is that he is risking hurting his lower back. The second is that he isn’t properly working out his biceps because that muscle group has become secondary to all the other muscles in his body he is using to flail the weight up.

The root of this problem is in his thinking. He is more concerned about getting the weight up (people seeing him lift the weight) than he is about getting stronger. A very strange thing happens when I ask people like this what muscle group they’re working out. In the case of this guy, he will tell me it’s his biceps. I will ask why then is he using every other muscle group to lift the weight, and he will get a confused look on his face. I’ll then explain that working out with the goal of getting stronger is about isolation and concentration. If you want your biceps to get stronger, you focus on using only your biceps. You work them out until they fail and then you’re done. He’ll thank me for the advice, but the next time I see him in the gym, he’s back to doing it the wrong way again. He’s more concerned with lifting the weight than he is with getting stronger. You see, when you lift to get stronger, you can’t lift as much weight, and most men’s egos can’t take that. Somehow there’s a disconnection in their brain with the logical fact that if they don’t train to get stronger, they won’t get stronger.

Here’s where this gets interesting. Move past Neanderthals throwing around heavy things in the gym and look at this metaphorically. In life, are you more focused on showing off or bettering yourself?

Would you rather buy an expensive sports car with a monthly payment you can barely afford or drive a lesser car that’s paid for in full?

Would you rather move your business into a flashy expensive high-rise, or spend the money increasing your advertizing budget?

Would you rather have your friends see you get the phone numbers of 10 women, or get rejected by 9 but actually meet up with one who likes you a few weeks later?

Would you rather find a magic pill that would let you walk into the gym, bench press 315 lbs. one time with everyone watching, or find a magic pill that would help you walk into the gym five days a week, working out until you’re nauseous from exhaustion, and actually get stronger and stronger over time?

Life isn’t about showing off. Those people never improve themselves. Set your ego aside and focus on becoming stronger. Become OK with others seeing your weakness as you train because tomorrow, you’ll be stronger than they are.

The Perfect Beverage

by Drawk Kwast – August 5th, 2012

lemon lime waterThere is no such thing as an unhealthy alpha male. I’ve previously covered the importance of what you eat, and why you’re insane if you’re not following a strict Paleolithic diet. In this article I’m going to focus on what you drink, tell you things to avoid, and give you the recipe for the perfect beverage.

I have a basic philosophy when it comes to what I put into my body: If I don’t get a specific benefit from a chemical, additive, or other man-made ingredient, I don’t eat or drink it. I do make use of pre-workout drinks for energy, during-workout drinks for electrolytes, and post-workout recovery drinks that are high in protein because they are engineered for a specific nutritional benefit. I won’t drink additives such as high-fructose corn syrup and soy, which have an overall negative effect on my health. I then take it a step further: Even if an additive may seem nutritionally neutral, like FD&C Blue No. 1, I avoid it. My thinking is simply that if it’s a chemical, and I don’t get a benefit from putting it into my body, why would I put it into my body? It’s better to err on the safe side.

Something most don’t consider is how many empty calories they’re drinking. An inescapable fact of controlling your weight is that if you consume more calories than you burn, your body gains fat. A 32 oz. Coke has 400 calories with zero nutritional benefit. Contrast that with 32 oz. of water that has zero calories and does a better job of quenching your thirst.

Now let’s consider juicing. If you own a juicer, and are using it at least once a day to make organic vegetable juice, congratulations as you’ve found a very easy way to stay lean, healthy, and more energetic. One thing you’ll want to avoid however is using your juicer for making fruit juice, which is healthy, but way too high in calories. People who juice have also learned that it’s just not practical to juice a bunch of vegetables every time they’re thirsty… which brings us to the recipe for the perfect beverage.

When I’m not drinking something related to my workout or vegetable juice, I’m drinking purified water with a squirt of organic lemon juice and a squirt of organic lime juice. It’s just enough to give some flavor and quench my thirst faster. At first this may seem a little tasteless, but believe me, once you get used to it and drink a 7-Up in comparison, you’ll think everyone else is crazy for drinking over-sweet sugar water.

It’s worth mentioning that I’m not cutting up lemons and limes. I’m cheating by buying organic, not from concentrate, lemon and lime juice that comes in little bottles. As for my water, it’s purified spring water that costs me about $55.00 per month delivered to my door. If you’re going to have water delivered, be sure to read my blog post about the dangers of storing water in plastic for long periods of time and ask the delivery service if they have a glass bottle option.

Finally, you need a plan for when you’re not at home and out for dinner. Ask the waiter for a glass of water with a wedge of lemon. While the lemon probably isn’t organic, the water probably is at least filtered, and this is way healthier than ordering a Coke.

Musical Taste and Influence

by Drawk Kwast – May 22nd, 2012

trance musicThere is a direct and very strong relationship between your brain and the type of music you listen to. Your preference of beats per minute indicates your intelligence level, while the lyrics you listen to have a hypnotic effect as they influence your thinking and behavior at an unconscious level.

Different styles of music have different tempos, the speed the song is played at, which is measured in beats per minute. If you venture out to the nightclubs in my hometown of Las Vegas, you will find that the majority play hip-hop/rap, while the remainder play house/trance.

Hip-hop/rap tends to have a tempo of around 100 BPM. You can find some exceptions to this, but the vast majority is close to this average. Some popular hip-hop/rap songs are listed below along with their BPM.

2Pac – California Love – 92 BPM
Dr. Dre – Dre Day – 94 BPM
Kanye West – Mercy – 70 BPM

House music is faster at 120-130 BPM, while trance music ranges from 125 to 150 BPM. Anyone who has ever been to both types of nightclubs knows that these different types of music attract a very different type of clientele. As for me, I don’t go to the hip-hop/rap clubs. I don’t like the music. I’m happiest at a club playing fast trance at more than 140 BPM. It’s also no coincidence that my friends also like this type of music, and that the people I meet at these clubs seem to have the most in common with me.

How does BPM indicate intelligence? People who think faster tend to like faster music, while people who think slower tend to like slower music. Here’s the research that backs this up…

Amit Agarwal holds an engineering degree in computer science from IIT and has previously worked at ADP Inc. for clients such as Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch. One of Amit’s more interesting projects was using Facebook data on the musical tastes of college students, and mapping that data to SAT scores. He found that fans of Lil Wayne‘s music got the lowest SAT scores, while listeners of Beethoven‘s work were among the highest scorers, with trance fans in a very close second place.

From Amit’s work, we can look at the average BPM by music type and see a correlation between intelligence and BPM. While Lil Wayne has a handful of songs at a higher BPM, his music is hip-hop/rap, which has a slower average BPM than trance. So what about Beethoven?

The type of music Beethoven’s work falls into has a relatively fast average BPM. Beethoven’s symphony No. 9, for example, changes throughout the piece as it ranges between 120 and 160 BPM. We can also look at some of Mozart’s work. His Sonata K. 331 has a tempo of 120 BPM.

Beethoven and Mozart were the “fast music for intelligent people” of years past. The largest group of “modern fast thinkers” is computer hackers. For the purposes of this discussion, we’ll use the term computer hacker in the broadest sense, to include people who are highly skilled at the programming and use of computers for things such as engineering, bio-tech, mathematics, etc. It’s no coincidence that the people who make today’s high-BPM trance music rely almost 100 percent on computers to make their music. While hip-hop/rap makes use of computers during production, its roots are in vocals and human-created sounds. This is why trance music falls under the broader musical group of “electronic music” while hip-hop/rap does not.

You may be wondering why listeners of Beethoven get higher SAT scores than listeners of trance music. The answer for this one can be found by looking into the social culture of the different groups. You’re more likely to find listeners of Beethoven at a yacht club or wine tasting event, while you’ll find trance fans at a rave while on multiple illegal recreational drugs. Computer hackers, with their more rebellious nature, love this environment. While they’re hyper-intelligent, they usually could not care less about SAT scores. They don’t take school seriously, usually drop out, and still become millionaires at a ridiculous rate. Coincidentally, if you’ve ever been to a rave, you know that no one gets down like young Asian women, who are also among the highest scorers on the SAT. Listeners of Beethoven tend to be more sober, less rebellious, and take things like SAT scores very seriously.

That covers the correlation between music speed and intelligence. It’s not that faster music makes you smarter, but rather that smarter people tend to like faster music. Next, we’re going to jump into how the music you choose can affect you.

One of the biggest reasons that I can’t listen to most music is because I don’t want to hear what they’re singing about. The words of most popular songs drive me crazy. When I’m at the gym, I can’t avoid it and get subjected to “popular” music like “Without You.” Here are the lyrics that song starts with:

I can’t win, I can’t reign
I will never win this game
Without you, without you
I am lost, I am vain,
I will never be the same
Without you, without you

Exactly what type of sad, hopeless bastard would speak these words? I am amazed that when I listen to the lyrics of most popular songs, the people are usually singing something to the effect of meeting the perfect person, whom they are hopelessly in love with, but that person doesn’t want anything to do with them. It’s either that, or they’re singing about how angry they are that they got dumped and/or cheated on by this person. Song lyrics work as hypnotic suggestions to your unconscious mind. You don’t want to listen to people singing about feeling worthless and unloved because you will begin to associate with it personally.

If you don’t believe me on that last point, or think it’s irrelevant, let me ask you the following question: When you listen to these hopeless and pitiful love songs, who’s singing? If you are like most people, you sing along with them in first person, as in singing the song in relation to an experience you had. When I hear these songs, I hear them as someone else singing them to me, about what’s going on with them. It sounds pitiful to me and I don’t want to listen to it. If it’s a guy, my answer is, “Shut up and grow a pair of balls. There are billions of other women on this planet.” If it’s a girl singing, it’s even more painful for me to listen to. I hear this woman singing to me as though I’m the man she loves, but who doesn’t care about her.

In any case, I don’t want my unconscious brain to be programmed with “that girl got away and she was my only chance at true love” type thinking. Most of the music I listen to has no words.

Think of it like this: If you were trying to read a book, work on a project, or focus on problem-solving-type thinking, how annoying would it be having a teenaged girl in the room who wouldn’t shut up about her boyfriend who just cheated on her? That is exactly how I feel when I listen to the words of most songs. It’s annoying and hinders my ability to focus. So I choose songs with no, or very few, words. When words occasionally pop up in the trance I listen to, they aren’t bitching about lost love. The lyrics are few and far between, and usually something along the lines of “Hell yeah!” They are about someone having a good time on a positive note, never anything negative.

Now, for your third and final lesson about music: Choosing the music you work out to.

target heart rateYou can use this chart to make a good guess as to what your target heart rate should be while working out, depending on your age and workout goal.

Here’s the connection most people don’t make about the music they should be listening to while working out. You want to listen to music that has the same BPM as your target heart rate (also measured in beats per minute). Depending on your age, you’ll notice that trance music is perfect for aerobic training. The trick is to use the speed of the music to pace your heart.

Kwast’s Law

by Drawk Kwast – May 9th, 2012

sexy women in lingerieKwast’s Law states, “If you’re searching for a sexy, smart, and sane woman, it’s impossible to find all three qualities in the same one.”

If you’ve slept with more than ten women, you’ve already figured out that the crazier they are, the better they are in bed. If you’ve slept with more than that, you’ve probably started to wonder if you will ever find one who’s a perfect combination of sexy, smart, and sane. The answer to this question is in fact no, and you’re about to learn why as we look at the different types of girls.

We will call him Dr. “Dave” to save him what little dignity he has left. Dr. Dave met a very sexy, very smart girl at his local strip club. This girl did wonderful things, like blowing him while he drove his car. Dr. Dave told everyone about his new girlfriend, and his friends were a strange combination of horrified yet jealous. Before too long, Dr. Dave and his girlfriend were married. She stopped stripping while he paid to move her family out of the trailer park, and sent her to law school. Two weeks after passing the bar, she used her new law degree to draft divorce papers. She took him for over a million in the divorce. She’s a sexy, smart sociopath.

So why is it that a sexy girl can’t also be sane and smart, all at the same time? There’s a very simple reason for this impossibility. A sexy girl who’s smart realizes how much power she has over men. The sexier she is, the more power she has, and if she’s smart enough to know this, logic becomes unnecessary as her emotional swings create new rules by the minute.

Personally, I’d rather insert my manhood into a box of thumbtacks than have sex with an ugly girl, so that simplifies the remainder of this discussion to sexy dumb girls. In one of my previous blog posts titled Why Men Prefer Sexy Dumb Girls, I talk about how men don’t notice intelligence from 35 feet away, but they will notice a great rack and a tight ass. The allure of a sexy dumb girl is simply that she’s sexy. The danger of their dimwittedness won’t surface until the day after you take them home, when they set your kitchen on fire while trying to boil water to make Mac-N-Cheese. I’m not speaking metaphorically here. I actually had this happen to me. She was sexy, sane, and as dumb as a bag of hammers.

Unfortunately, when it comes to being with sexy women, this is a problem without a solution. A smart man understands the game, and continues to play because he enjoys playing, but he insures that he can walk away at any point without much hassle or penalty. Keep playing and the day may come that you’re sure you’ve discovered sexy, smart, and sane all in the same package. If that happens, hold on to her. Just don’t be surprised if you discover you were wrong.
