Following the last post “The Value of What You Know”, I found a hilarious example to use as a follow-up and lighten the mood. What is it that this guy “knows” and is using to draw value from others? … Fighting Zombies of course!!!
That’s right! There is a place in South Jersey that is offering a “Zombie Survival Course”. The program prepares you for the “upcoming zombie apocalypse” through teaching you to shoot guns, hot wire cars, perform first aid, and even the martial arts of “Zombitsu”. So how much does it cost to learn these life-saving survival skills? Packages run anywhere from $149 to $425 per person! Click on the video to see some great footage (I apologize in advance for the advertisement in the beginning).
In personal news: Did you miss me yesterday? My day unfortunately began with a brief trip to the ER after a small scare during a minor operation. I passed out and the doctor felt as though I may have demonstrated symptoms of a seizure!! However, at the ER, it was ruled that it wasn’t a seizure and that I was instead experiencing Vasovagal syndrome. Apparently something as small as being poked by a needle can trigger me to become unconscious. So much for ever trying to be a tough-guy again!
In blog news: I’ve been receiving a significant increase in requests for guest posts and advertising interest. I’m glad to finally see some attention from potential business partners! And another thing I’m really excited about – my Google Adsense has made over $16 this month! Yeah!! $16!! I know some of you who make $1,000 per month in blog revenue will sneeze at this, but I’m pretty proud! I’m still completely fascinated that complete strangers clicking on my ads have the potential to create revenue for me. To them I say “Thank You!”
