David in his den attempting to make a point about something or other...

“David’s Diary” is where I talk mainly about what I’ve been up to in my online business…

My first MyPayingAds Credit Pack Competition ran all through November and finished yesterday with six out of 17 participants sharing the $200 prize pot!

Here are the results:

  • 1st Prize ($100) goes to Ivan Arburtha
  • 2nd Prize ($50) goes to Geoff Yong
  • 3rd Prize ($20) goes to Clair James
  • 4th Prize ($15) goes to John Miller
  • 5th Prize ($10) goes to Rina Baxter
  • 6th Prize ($5) goes to Perry Rosenfeld

Congratulations to Ivan for taking first place, and to all the cash prize winners! I will PIF the cash to the winners’ MPA accounts over the next few days.

Thank you also to the other 11 participants. This was my biggest competition so far in terms of numbers of participants.

Everybody who took part also qualified for 2,000 free credits on theTrafficSwirl traffic exchange.

If you took part in the competition and have not yet claimed your free credits, drop me a line and let me know your TrafficSwirl username so that I can add the credits to your account.

SFI November Goals (mostly) Achieved!

November was a good month for me in SFI. To my surprise, when I clicked My “Goals” tab to earn a VersaPoint on 30th November, I saw that I had actually completed all but one of the goals I set at the beginning of the month:



Wow, that has not happened very often, partly, I must admit, because I had not put much thought into the goals I was setting in SFI each month, even though I know the importance of goal-setting.

SFI: Constantly Innovating & Improving

SFI is one of the most innovative affiliate businesses online today. Improvements are constantly being made. In November, a new sign up incentive was launched, with a well designed and effective new squeeze page to help affiliate refer more team members. I have experience a jump in sign ups both for myself and my team.

Setting & Tracking My Goals In SFI

From now on, I will try and track my monthly SFI goals more carefully and seek to improve on them month by month. With the screenshot of my results for November 2015 posted earlier, I feel that I have something I can measure myself against.

Here are the goals I have set for this month. As you can see, I have tweaked some of them upwards based on my performance in November…


Meanwhile, Here In Hiroshima…

A hectic month beckons here in Hiroshima. My first Christmas party is with one of my community centre English conversation classes on Thursday 3rd December. We’ll be having lunch at the Coral Hotel just across the water from the “Holy Island” of Miyajima.

Two days later I will be zooming up to Osaka on the bullet train with my wife and daughter, Eileen, to see my daughter’s hero, Ramin Karimloo at the Umeda Arts Theater where he is performing in The Prince of Broadway. Ramin Karimloo is also currently playing Jean Valjean in the Broadway revival of Les Miserables. Eileen was captivated by his performance of Enjolras in the 25th anniversary performance at the 02 arena, the DVD of which she watched over and over again.

The following week we are hoping to see a production of Les Miserables performed by pupils of the International School in Hiroshima.

Meanwhile, one of my business partners – Okeiko House – is negotiating with a business group to have me coach Japanese businessmen in English presentation skills. If it comes off, it could bring together my English teaching and my business experience in a new and exciting challenge going into 2016.

Whatever happens, it’s going to be a hectic and fun-filled December!
