MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
SQUAWKS FROM ZACK
Want to be a member of my club? You know you do!
Ciao adoring fans….in case you didn’t know, that is a little Italian lingo. I am a bird of the world after all!
So, Dom has been writing and doing interviews all over the place on membership and membership websites. I don’t get two things….1) why aren’t I the one being interviewed (I’m much better looking)….and 2) if he had any questions on membership, why didn’t he ask me….I mean after all who has all the adoring fans? Hint: it’s not Dom…hee, hee.
Anyway, I am going to bail Dom out yet again and I probably won’t even get an extra Brazil nut for my effort…Sometimes it is just hard to be me, even though I am pretty awesome!
The best way to say it, is to say it…..Everyone needs a membership site! I’d have one for all you adoring fans, but Kerry won’t make me one (she claims to be too busy, sheesh!) and it is hard to type and use the mouse with only 4 toes and 2 of them face back! Enough about my problems, my job here is to pass along some of my hard won wisdom…..It doesn’t matter if you use it in your business, or in your hobby. Whether you charge for access or let them be members for free. I would, of course, let my adoring fans have free access to my site (if Kerry would build it) with a small donation of peanuts or Brazil nuts.
Anyway, Dom wrote a great article about why you need a membership site (using the ideas from my fertile bird brain, by the way) which you can read here.
NOTE: Dom talks about herds in his article instead of the more proper term - flocks.
Hanging out on my perch until next time,

DO YOU KNOW THE ANSWER?
I have a ‘man on the street’ question for you. You know what I mean - Jay Leno did it, Jesse Waters does it now on The O’Reilly Show. Someone stands on a busy city street with a microphone (and probably a bodyguard) and stops people to ask them a pretty basic question. They are looking for how many people get it right (and how many people get it hysterically or sadly wrong).
Here’s my question (for our readers who live outside the U.S., you get a pass).
Please face the camera and speak clearly into the microphone.
“What historical event are we celebrating on the Fourth of July?”
While you’re thinking, I’ll share an easy and festive recipe to create for your Fourth of July bash, for a family-friendly thirst quencher.
Slice lemons and place in the bottom of the drink pitcher. Add 1/2 cup fresh mint and 1 cup sugar on top of lemons. With the wooden spoon mash the mixture for 1 minute. Add the berries and lightly mash. Add 1 quart water and refrigerate until chilled.
To serve: Fill a tall glass with ice and fill 3/4 with lemon juice mixture, top with club soda and serve.

TICK TOCK, time’s up… got your answer ready?
Yes, you got it!!
The full answer, according to the never-wrong Wikipedia, is:
“Independence Day of the United States, also referred to as Fourth of July or July Fourth in the U.S., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress declaring that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and no longer part of the British Empire.”
Happy Fourth of July!
