Default How Fred Tipped His Waitress w/ LED Flashing Glasses

Thanks Gordon,

Got a Question for the group.

Does Amazon.com - allow you to put links at the top of your book
listed on Kindle - (The front section you can read for F-r-e-e - that refer to another product at amazon?)

As we have done below?

=========
How Fred Tipped His Waitress
w/ LED Flashing Glasses

Fred Called me up after reading my Ezine Story about tipping a waiter
with a Flying Cow.

Fred had ordered a Dozen LED Flashing Glasses
and wanted to tell me what happened.

First off Fred told me, "You can't See SH_T with the Glasses Flashing in your eyes."

I laughed and Told Fred how I'd run into a post outside a
Restaurant - in the dark - while wearing the same LED Glasses. So I knew first
hand he had that right.

But Fred put them on After he sat down at their table with his wife. And
after 5 minutes a magician came over and complimented him on his "shades."

So Fred's glasses got him a F-r-e-e 15 Minute Magic Show.

THEN - in order to See better -
Fred Put his Flashing Glasses in his shirt pocket.

BEFORE The Waitress came with the menus.
Brought drinks.

Fred then ASKED His Waitress - Grace - "Do You Think of Yourself as an
Adventurous Person? You Like to Try New Things?

And

SURPRISE.

Grace Said, "YES".

Put on a pair of FLASHING LED GLASSES.

Couldn't SEE either.

Fiddled around with them and then Grace hung them between her breasts
at the v-neck of her blouse.

Fred told me the straight line he came out with next. Fred said, "I'll bet your tips go up while wearing those."

(His wife busted out laughing.)

Fred explained he got out of that mess by proclaiming, "Ok. Laugh it up. But
we're NOT going there."

And Put His Own LED Glasses Back on so
Grace wouldn't think she was the ONLY one
walking around with FLASHING - Red, Blue, Green LED Glasses.

Glenn,

Just bought the glasses and flashing rings. Why would I do that?

Because I think the glasses will make one helluva sales piece for one of my charity events. In September I will take 4 members of the UNR boxing team to Sydney Australia to box one of the world's best known peace activist's boxing team. Hoping to make it an international peace awareness event. It is amateur (per boxing regulations) against amateur. Should be fun and rewarding.

As you might have guessed, we need to raise money to pay for the trip. If the glasses sell like I think they will we should raise a few bucks. That means we still have to raise the remaining dollars but stuff like this is almost always an easy sell.

Anyone interested in helping us become an international peace mission is eligible to help us. We will of course give due recognition and appreciation to everyone who helps.

Good post!

Default You Have a Good Nose For MUNNY

Howdy,

Smart of you to order at a 1.00 each
and re-sell for $2 or 3.

Several people at three different Restaurants have come up to me wanting to B*UY my LED glasses.

So YES you can sell them - without having to CHASE prospects.

A couple of tips...

#1 - Don't wear them outside in the dark when you are walking.

I walked into a wooden post

#2 - Photos of folks wearing the glasses with the LED's flashing come out MARVELOUS.

The red especially fills the entire pic

#3 - The low Light in a Restaurant is where people RESPOND Best.

I wore them in a Wall-Mart.

The bright Glaring light - inside at night - you can barely notice the flashing
red, blue, green lines.

You are more than welcome. Hope it is a useful tool. Good luck with your food business (should you make the leap).

Default Flirt & Get Richer From Home - Case Study

Thanks Tom,

Customer Satisfaction Team members get yelled at, complained to
and generally treated miserably.

But what IF you Used The GOLDEN RULE?

Made them Laugh?

These folks have a LOT of power to help you - IF THEY WANT TO.

Glenn

Hi,

Last night I was reading an E-book on the Amazon, Fire HD 8 Tablet I bought on
Nov 30, 2016.

Got up in the morning.

Turned it on.

Dead as a Door Nail.

I had recharged it all night.

But even the power button got NOTHING.

So.

I went to my BackOrders at Amazon.com - Clicked on the "Return or Replace"
Button. And it said, "This item is past warranty. Can no longer be replaced."
Not the exact words. But you get the idea.

YIKES.

Next I decided My buddy Jeff Bezos wouldn't let me down. I just needed to talk
to someone "Live".

Clicked down thru the HELP button.

Entered my phone # - and the phone instantly rang. 10:30Pm and I was talking
to Melissa from FL who admitted she works from home - when I heard a kids in
the background.

I Told Melissa 3 Things:

#1 - "As an Amazon PRIME member I'm one of your best customers." And I
needed her help Because I was building a whole website using Photos taken
from my new Amazon Fire (Camera & Video.)

She laughed when I explained how I was posting Before and After Ax and
SledgeHammer log cutting photos at www.BackYardCow.com - and was
Depending on her to Tell JEFF BEZOS this is the First Camera I can use
Successfully because it's so Simple.

#2 - Then I mentioned I had just read that Amazon Reported 50% PROFITS this
quarter. And that I had read Jeff's biography.

Melissa was laughing.

#3 - Finally I explained how I am compiling lots of Lotto Ticket case studies for a
new book on Amazon Kindle. And I needed my Amazon "Fire" to see what the
book looked like on a computer And a tablet.

And explained how if She Gave Lotto tickets to The Cooks at Restaurants where
she eats She might get Extra Food on her plate - sometimes too. Like we do.

Melissa said, "Thanks." And laughingly said, "I'll try that."

Melissa Decided to help me.

When she Checked:

I - She said my "Fire Tablet" was out of stock.

II - She kept looking and Found One. And shipped it to me.

III - Emailed me a shipping label so I don't have to pay S & H to return my
Busted "Amazon Fire" tablet.

So.

(Date Ordered) Nov 30, 2016 to (Date BUSTED) Feb 14, 2017 - meant my Amazon Fire was Beyond The Guarantee.

But a Little Golden Rule Flirting with Melissa
Resulted in a -

89.99 New Amazon Fire Tablet
and
20.00 s & h

109.99

Thanks,
Glenn

Default The Woo - Woo Side of Flirt Tipping/Paying-It-Forward

Thanks Gordon,

A mentor who has Raised 2 Billion dollars for non-profits and charities
has a favorite saying, "The more people I help the luckier I get."

Just Suppose You Could Help Lots of People by Flirt Tipping at Wal-Mart
And Restaurants and other local stores and ATTRACT
Moolah to yourself from ELSEWHERE.

You Draw Your Own Conclusions
but This is What Happened to me This past week.

a - Last week I ordered a 50.00 Box of Super Spinach
Liquid Herb Energy Shots. Intending to Flirt Tip them to Waitresses who need
Extra Energy.

b - I drank one myself to test. And my cold and flu sniffles went away.

c - Told a sick friend MY RESULTS and HE drank one. And said he felt better.

d - I also ordered a 37.00 box of Herbal Wgt Loss Pills that a gal grossing
100 million a yr told me about. Ate 2 and didn't get hungry for 9 hours.
WHOA!

e - Told a guy at a party my Personal NOT HUNGRY Experience & my plan
to feed some of the ladies at all night grocery stores - some of the wgt loss Herb
Pills to build up some Testimonials.

f - Jerry Insisted on trying them. So I went out to the car and Got him
4 herb pills. (Dunno what happened yet - with Jerry.)

g - Plus I tipped 2 waitresses with yellow rubber Ducks

h - Gave the same two ladies a Choice of Getting a Donald Trump BILL
as a tip of a REAL 1.00 Bill. They Chose THE DONALD.

i - Tipped 5 Cooks in The Kitchen With THE DONALD or REAL Dollars.

j - Sent a client a FLYING ELEPHANT for his Wedding Gift
(It has rubber bands inside. When you shoot it against a wall it TRUMPETS
Like a wild Elephant. WISH I could be a Fly on the wall when The WIFE Opens
that gift!)

k - Thanked a New Ezine member Who Sent me 195.00
by Sending HIM a Flying Cow.

l - Total Stranger spent 39.00

m - David - who owns 3 horse farms - who I have not talked to in 10 years
sends me 50.00 for a copywriting book. And Ordered Super Spinach.

AND...

I got Lucky at the Grocery Store Last Night -

SOUP was on Sale - I saved 70 cents per can!

I bought 50 cans - which will last me 6 months or more.

35.00 In My Pocket
cuz I buy soup all
thru the year anyway.

And then.

The Cash Register lady and I got to talking and laughing after I tipped
her a LOTTO ticket.

While I took food OUT of my cart.
She Bagged it and piled it on the counter behind her.

Then she Handed Me Double Bag After Double Plastic Bag
of Canned Soup. LAUGHING because nobody ELSE had ordered so much soup.

When I drove 15 miles to my house
and un-packed.

I found 3 big Pizzas in my pile of food.

I Debated.

Drive back - maybe get the nice lady in trouble.

OR

EAT THE L-U-C-K-Y PIZZA.

I decided to EAT the 3 Pizzas - and bring some of my friends
to that store to shop. Balance things without getting the Cashier in trouble.

I looked up the Pizza Prices - at the store website:

6.99 each pizza X 3 = 21.00

RESULTS -

LUCKY SHOPPING in ONE NITE - 21.00 PLUS 35.00 = 56.00

3 New Buyers - Out of the Blue
All on the SAME Day - Who already spent over 300 bucks.
=========
=========
ACTION SUMMARY -

Just Sharing the fact that I Get LUCKIER IN ALL DIRECTIONS when I
Pay it Forward and Flirt tip waitresses and clerks and cooks.

AND TALKING about my plans of What to Flirt Tip Next
to people at parties and friends -- Creates Testimonials when They INSIST on
Testing out new products.

WOE
IS
ME.

What can I do if folks INSIST on Buying Stuff I Give Away in my Flirt
tipping?

As Sergeant Friday used to say on the old cop show,
"Just The Facts, ma'am."

Thanks,
Glenn
