Fight Poverty: It’s Blog Action Day today!

It is today, it is now, it is blog action day.
Once again thousands of bloggers unite to deliver an important message.
This year (Today) it’s about one subject:

Poverty!

The numbers above are rising fast, meaning that this is working.
My message is very simple: We can end poverty. Not tomorrow, not next year, but right now.

I need comments on this post!

I know that you can share something good, and I did and still doing my part by being active socially, Online and offline.
One group that I promote (And proudly THE TOP recruiter on the hall of fame on it) is the facebook cause called: “MicroPlace” which is a brilliant idea by non other than eBay founder (and his network) Pierre Omidyar. (Note: in order to be able to view the cause page on facebook you must have a facebook account and be signed in or try here).

The idea of MicroPlace (Which also can be reached at www.Microplace.com) is very simple: People helping people. That’s it in a nutshell.

People generally like to invest money. Why not micro invest their money to help families around the world to start a small business? This way they helped them out of poverty, provided an honest work environment, shared the love, and also shared the profit. But then again it’s not always about profit, it’s about how good you will feel after helping someone. If you watch Oprah, you will understand her point of helping people without expecting anything in return but the joy knowing what she did was a great thing.

My point of showing you the facebook cause/group is to show you that I have been doing it for a long time now, almost on a daily basis, and I beleive that if everyone who is reading this right now start by just spreading the word about MicroPlace (everyday, not just today!), I beleive that we can put an end to poverty very soon.

I still need comments..

Another way you can help is by telling me your idea or share your thoughts by commenting on this post, this is why I need you to spend just a minute and tell me what you think or how can we all come together to help with the issue. And I can’t wait to hear your voices 🙂

Another thing that I will do, is to buy 25 dinner boxes and tweet about my location where I will be giving it out in New York city tonight, feel free to come and help out, I will be posting tweets on my Twitter page here of what’s happening.

This must really continue, I blogged about it before here and here, and I will continue to do my best by sharing on all my networking activities online or off. (Feel free to join me on any of the networks found on the top right corner of this page), make sure to comment, do any of the 3 actions I shared above (Join a cause and sread the word, write about it or tell a friend and go out and give something no matter how small you thin kit is). And I will see you soon 🙂

Video interview w/ eBay President & CEO John Donahoe

First of all, I would like to apologize about the big mistake I did while taking this video, and to clarify why, is simply because I snatched this interview as soon as I got the chance, however, my camera was on very low battery and it was set in the previous recording on the zoomed in position, if I have realized that and tried to zoom out before taking the video, I would loose the power and the entire interview in general.
I know it might seem funny, but everyone make mistakes!

In the interview, John Donahoe, eBay’s current president (Who also used to be the eBay marketplaces president for a long time), speaks positively with confident about eBay, urging new users to sign up, buy and sell, even create social networks around it.
I first met John last year at eBay’s DevCon in Boston, briefly spoke to him about his visions and found out that he is not only a brilliant & open minded person, but I thought that he is the man for the job, taking eBay to the next level (In my opinion, this should have been done a long time ago!) and I agree with every move he made since taking over his position 100% (And yes I don’t think that eBay should be just a big garage sale, there is a lot more into it than just that).
John, me and Pierre Omidyar (eBay founder) share the same vision that drove a lot of current sellers away or mad or whatever you have seen in the news latley, but I think that consentrating on eBay’s core business, opening more doors to developers (API’s), and cleaning up the site in general of some of the old rules that brought the company somehow down, is the only way for eBay to become what it’s meant to be since the begining, an online marketplace!
Yes I understand that I might get a lot of comments against my opinion, but I truly believe that if you reialze how much more money you can make though eBay without even selling anything, you will be amaized of what you didn’t know before. All I can ask you is to open your eyes, think outside the box, research on how to become a real player in this game (Not just a big seller) and I guarentee you great profit and bigger bussines than you can even imagin.
Before I leave you with the video, I wanted you all to know that I am including at least 2 months total of eBay training, not only on how to sell, but also a complete work around to make profit in other ways but selling, including the affiliate program, API calls, integration into other applications and similler stuff. (Don’t start going crazy now, I promise that it will be so easy for any one to do it with the least experiance) and will be all for free on the upcoming Online School that I announced here.
