The Comet is designed with the core belief that smartphones are not merely devices, but extensions of who we are.

As we all know, smartphones are becoming the primary way we reach out to people around the world today.

In other words, your smartphone is not just a device but a custodian of your life and it’s limitless experiences.

And are currently running a campaign to raise money on Indiegogo

With Comet, you will never lose your smartphone or data stored in it simply because you dropped it in water.

Live the moment, enjoy the beauty of water without the panic of losing your smartphone.

Indiegogo empowers people like Prashanth Raj Urs to activate the global community to make ideas happen. Then, they help you spread the word.

So on behalf of Subro Lord, Prashanth and his team over at Comet Core, please get out your wallets and purses and contribute now at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/comet-world-s-first-buoyant-smartphone#/story

Global Business Collaboration

Ian Haines, one of my business associates has started up his own group on LinkedIn.

Ian Haines

Global Business Collaboration Group 

This group was set up to allow individuals and companies to position their products or services to a global international market and for buyers to find international suppliers.

Ian is Owner of Ianmhaines Consulting in Codford St Peter, Wiltshire, United Kingdom

Ian’s business interests are in;

1. His core business is a general call centre and BPO partners worldwide;

Has a portfolio of 500 partners worldwide although we probably only work with 30 regularly and use no more than 100 on an ad hock basis.

But the point is we have a partner somewhere in every country around the world so all bases are covered.

They hunt for companies that want to outsource some inbound/outbound or BPO work and then place that with a partner of their’s after conducting a business matching service.

The partner has to have demonstrable experience in the clients vertical, they have to be in the right location, can achieve the price points and the way the client wants to remunerate them (has to be a win for both parties – client and supplier)

The supplier can tick all the boxes relating to size of operation, data security, recruitment, training, political stability, business continuity planning etc etc.

The two big call centre areas for Ian right now are multi lingual – They have circa 40 partners across Europe who can handle in one site between 10 and 20 European languages via a mix of native, bi and tri lingual agents.

One centre even offers multi lingual Social Media Management via their own platform managing – voice, web, text, chat.

They specifically target North American, UK and European businesses that trade across Europe who need multi lingual partners.

The 2nd area is a large call centre partner operating in China with 2 huge sites helping US and European companies with inbound CS and sales support that wish to trade in China.

The good thing is that this 3,500 seat operation is Canadian owned and they will support a small 5 seat operation and upwards. They specialise in supporting luxury brands with inbound sales and CS support.

2. BPO business in India who specialise in the whole accounting and payroll outsource side of things;

They have a team of 80 accountants and other back end financial staff who manage this outsource side of things for UK and US businesses.

Ian is looking to try and generate as much work and enquiries as possible for them.

This is a massive growth area currently and they are a real premium supplier of these services – not on price but on quality of service and delivery.

Earn1KaDay 2015 Seminar in Las Vegas – Get The Recordings Now

seminar

Experts Shared Their BEST Money Getting Secrets

Long time friend Dennis Becker and several dozen Internet marketers recently travelled to Las Vegas, Nevada for the Earn1KaDay Seminar.

They came from near and far, by car, plane and bus – not to win a fortune in the casinos, but to learn life changing information in a closed hotel conference room.

Here I want to give you just a few reasons that these recordings are an incredibly great value…

— Wilson Mattos talked about success and failure, and why you should quit.

I know Wil very well, he’s been a good friend for many years and has been at every single one of my seminars, all
seven.

Yet when he shared his personal history for the first time ever publicly, I was shocked.

It put his advice into so much greater perspective, I can’t begin to do justice to the power of his presentation.

— I thought I knew a lot about Kindle publishing… turns out I still have a ways to go to keep up with the rest of the experts on our Self Publishing Panel.

These recordings not only can, but WILL, change things for you…

— Gene Pimentel had me shaking my head in wonderment when he shared his tips (and yes, tricks) to profit from buying and selling domain names that he acquires for as little as $1.00.

The recordings of are now available [CLICK HERE]

dennis_becker_seminarYou’ll hear other experts like Connie Ragen Green, Kristen Joy, Chris Miyamoto (wow, does he know a lot about SEO!), Teresa Miller, John Rhodes (Why did he sell out from a very successful business to take a job again?

You’ll find out.), Justin Popovic, Brenda Trott, Adrienne Dupree (profits with Amazon FBA), Jon Griffin (building an empire with Kindle fiction books).

I don’t want to single out any one as “best”, and I suspect that each of the presentations will be labelled favourite by someone, depending on what you’re looking for.

Get The 2015 Earn1KaDay Seminar Recordings Now

You’ll love these ideas, and I’m sure there will be some ideas that will have you taking action right away to implement them in your own business.

Trust me, I have.

Life changing? For me, yes. For you? You be the judge.
