Minda Wilson Obamacare Expert Great Intent; Bad Implementation

Minda Wilson Founder at Affordable Healthcare Review believes the Affordable Care Act (ACA) comes from good intent, but is a big mess when it comes to implementation.

pic Minda Wilson Obamacare Expert Affordable Healthcare ReviewWhether you are a fan of Obamacare or not, the news this week about CGI and it’s failed attempt to build a usable website and platform for the federal ACA rollout has proved that implementation of the new law will not be as smooth as anyone would hope.

Add to that a very confused public and private sector over just how the ACA will affect everyone and you have a Continue reading

Register for Extreme Leadership Summit

I met Elayna at Author 101 a few years back and was immediately taken by her drive and intelligence. Elayna is all of 4’9″ tall and a striking women. I can only guess that this had to be an issue with businessmen and women, taking her seriously. She also has an accent so that added to her challenges.

Where Elayna succeeds is in her drive, vision, passion and willingness to take measured risks. I say measured because Elayna is also a single mom and so she, like any single mom, needed to make sure she could support her daughters. She didn’t do it overnight, but in the short time I have known her she has gone from having drive to being fully alive.

Elayna has written two books, she runs several organizations, she works with people like Jay Conrad Levinson and many other thought leaders and teachers she once only studied.

She is an expert at social media and especially on how to position yourself as an expert in your field so that people who have not met you, take you seriously. Many people talk about positioning and the difference with what Elayna teaches is about how to tout yourself as an expert and stay in integrity at the same time.

Elayna is speaking at the More Power Live Conference in Dallas September 20-23, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza, Dallas Texas. See the details below and register today.

This is a great interview everyone should listen to. Also thank you Elayna for hooking me up with an interview with Jay Conrad Levinson. – JW

Also want to thank Dr Prakash. He is thrown into interview after interview and instead of rushing me through as many would, he worried if he had given enough. You did Dr. Prakash.. Thanks JW

Dr Ravi Prakash JPL MSL Curiosity

Dr Ravi Prakash

Texas born Dr. Ravi Prakash, who received a B.S. in aerospace engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and a M.S. in aerospace engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, joined NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in 2005 and has been working at the Mars Science Laboratory ever since.

Dr. Ravi Prakash is a descent and landing engineer at JPL, working with his team to perfect an unprecedented unmanned landing on Mars, of the largest robotic rover ever sent into space.

This artist's concept shows thrusters firing during the entry, descent and landing phase for NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission to Mars.
Mars Science Laboratory Guided Entry at Mars, Artist’s Concept
This artist’s concept shows thrusters firing during the entry, descent and landing phase for NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory mission to Mars.

The entry, descent, and landing (EDL) phase begins when the spacecraft reaches the Martian atmosphere, about 125 kilometers (about 78 miles) above the surface, and ends with the rover safe and sound on the surface of Mars.

Entry, descent, and landing for the Mars Science Laboratory mission will include a combination of technologies inherited from past NASA Mars missions, as well as exciting new technologies. Instead of the familiar airbag landing of the past Mars missions, Mars Science Laboratory will use a guided entry and a sky crane touchdown system to land the hyper-capable, massive rover.

The sheer size of the Mars Science Laboratory rover (900 kilograms or over 2,000 pounds) would preclude it from taking advantage of an airbag-assisted landing. Instead, the Mars Science Laboratory will use the sky crane touchdown system, which will be capable of delivering a much larger rover onto the surface. It will place the rover on its wheels, ready to begin its mission at Gale Crater.

The new entry, descent and landing architecture, with its use of guided entry, will allow for more precision. Where the Mars Exploration Rovers could have landed anywhere within their respective 150 by 20 kilometers (about 93 miles by 12 miles) landing ellipses, Mars Science Laboratory will land within a 20-kilometer (12-mile) ellipse! This high-precision delivery will open up more areas of Mars for exploration and potentially allow scientists to roam “virtually” where they have not been able to before. The entry, descent and landing sequence will break down into four parts:

This image shows changes in the target landing area for Curiosity, the rover of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory project.
Revised Landing Target for Mars Rover Curiosity
This image shows changes in the target landing area for Curiosity, the rover of NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory project.
  • Guided Entry – The spacecraft will be controlled by small rockets during descent through the Martian atmosphere, toward the surface.
  • Parachute Descent – Like Viking, Pathfinder and the Mars Exploration Rovers, the Mars Science Laboratory will be slowed by a large parachute.
  • Powered Descent – Again, rockets will control the spacecraft’s descent until the rover separates from its final delivery system, the sky crane.
  • Sky Crane – Like a large crane on Earth, the sky crane system will lower the rover to a “soft landing” – wheels down – on the surface of Mars.

Curiosity’s Mission

Mars Science Laboratory (MSL)

With its rover named Curiosity, Mars Science Laboratory mission is part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of robotic exploration of the red planet. Curiosity was designed to assess whether Mars ever had an environment able to support small life forms called microbes. In other words, its mission is to determine the planet’s “habitability.”

Mars Science Laboratory will study Mars’ habitability

To find out, the rover will carry the biggest, most advanced suite of instruments for scientific studies ever sent to the martian surface. The rover will analyze samples scooped from the soil and drilled from rocks. The record of the planet’s climate and geology is essentially “written in the rocks and soil” — in their formation, structure, and chemical composition. The rover’s onboard laboratory will study rocks, soils, and the local geologic setting in order to detect chemical building blocks of life (e.g., forms of carbon) on Mars and will assess what the martian environment was like in the past.

Mars Science Laboratory relies on innovative technologies

Mars Science Laboratory will rely on new technological innovations, especially for landing. The spacecraft will descend on a parachute and then, during the final seconds prior to landing, lower the upright rover on a tether to the surface, much like a sky crane. Once on the surface, the rover will be able to roll over obstacles up to 75 centimeters (29 inches) high and travel up to 90 meters (295 feet) per hour. On average, the rover is expected to travel about 30 meters (98 feet) per hour, based on power levels, slippage, steepness of the terrain, visibility, and other variables.

The rover will carry a radioisotope power system that generates electricity from the heat of plutonium’s radioactive decay. This power source gives the mission an operating lifespan on Mars’ surface of a full martian year (687 Earth days) or more, while also providing significantly greater mobility and operational flexibility, enhanced science payload capability, and exploration of a much larger range of latitudes and altitudes than was possible on previous missions to Mars.

Arriving at Mars at 10:31 p.m. PDT on Aug. 5, 2012 (1:31 a.m. EDT on Aug. 6, 2012), Mars Science Laboratory will serve as an entrée to the next decade of Mars exploration. It represents a huge step in Mars surface science and exploration capability because it will:

  • demonstrate the ability to land a very large, heavy rover to the surface of Mars (which could be used for a future Mars Sample Return mission that would collect rocks and soils and send them back to Earth for laboratory analysis)
  • demonstrate the ability to land more precisely in a 20-kilometer (12.4-mile) landing circle
  • demonstrate long-range mobility on the surface of the red planet (5-20 kilometers or about 3 to 12 miles) for the collection of more diverse samples and studies.

The Beautiful Video Game That Drives NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover

So MSL Curiosity has landed. It survived the seven minutes of terror and safely touched down on the surface of Mars. A miracle in its own right. Now that it’s there, it needs a way to move around. Anyone who played Lunar Lander and Moon Patrol already knows how they’re going to do this: Video games.

Brian Cooper is the lead driver for MSL Curiosity, and he wrote the software to drive it. But that’s not all… READ MORE

I’m mainly known around Australia for being the go-to-guy for “How To Write A Best Selling Book”, and with good reason…

CConsidering that over the past 18 years I’ve brought to market over 85 books, and many of them have become best sellers – So I know what I’m talking about in this area…

I’m mostly recognized for the worldwide success from marketing the popular book, “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus”. This may come as a surprise to you, but when John Gray first started looking for a publisher for the book “Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus”, he was told it would never make it, and…

Every single publisher they tried rejected the book and knocked it back…!

Around that time, John and I became business partners, and I implemented some creative “out-of-the-box” marketing strategies for the Mars Venus Brand. And the rest is history…

Now – That book has gone on to sell over 40 million copies, been translated into 54 languages, and sold in 149 countries. It spent six and a half years on the New York Times best-seller list between 1992 and 1998, and has done over a Billion dollars in sales.

10 Day Business Turnaround

Darren Stephens and Spike Humer, two of the world’s most Brilliant Business minds, reveal the secrets to How to Transform your Business and make it Survive and Thrive in any Economic Climate.

What separates companies in any economy, any market or any industry is your ability to adapt, adjust and execute. Business owners who know where they are, where they want to go, and then take effective action survive and thrive – those that don’t face extinction. Read this book, your future might depend on it.

This book contains hands-on, real-world, strategies designed to show you how to take control of your present and what to do to design your future for you – and your business. The decision is yours. Stay the course or take action now.

Why it’s CRITICAL & URGENT to implement a “Turnaround” before it’s too late…

It could simply be that, you believe your business is not living up to its true potential. It could also be that you want to understand clearly where your business is at that moment, where you want it to be in the future so that a concise plan of action can be developed to get it there.

Maybe you want to build you business up so you can sell out for a BIG PAY DAY – or maybe you want to take advantage of changes in the marketplace or of a new opportunity, or on completion of your own business-building practice.

The reasons why a business embarks on a turnaround plan are many and varied. However, it would probably be fair to say that during times of turmoil hardship, or a tough economy – for the vast majority of businesses, embarking on a turnaround plan is most likely so that it can survive. That is why we look at an extremely short time frame in which to achieve this. It should take you no longer than ten days to come up with a powerfully clear, concise, and actionable plan to transform the business.

If you have any doubt about your need to turnaround your business today, bear this in mind…

Sooner or later you and your business will have to change; “willing change” is better than “forced change.”

The best time to create a turnaround in either your life or your business is when you ‘can choose to’ and not when you ‘have to’.

Bestselling author, top branding and social technology expert Simon Mainwaring talks to us about branding, copy, top of mind awareness and much more.

I will tell you that if you do not know Simon Mainwaring, then you are at a huge disadvantage.

Whether you are a fortune 100 or  a small to medium sized company, that is working hard to figure out how the web and social technologies can and should work for you, There are things you can do or change that will make a significant difference in how effective your marketing is on the web.

Too many of us are overwhelmed by social media, marketing and networking and how we should use them to increase business and profitability.

Many experts talk about having a plan, but Simon has been there and has done it for company after company with award winning results. Simon is now working to get out the word to the many of how they too, can learn how to make the web and social media work for you.

Simon works with business, not just to help them set up their marketing blueprint. He sits down with them and has them role up their sleeves and sharpen their pencils and come up with a “Useable Now” Blueprint plan of how your business can utilize and capitalize using social technologies.

Simon is working hard to make this available to everyone, especially non-profits and when I saw what he was doing I immediately called him to have him tell us directly what he was doing. Simon, who already has a voice on many national platforms, took his time with us and not only shared what he was doing, but answered many of my questions about branding, copy and marketing.

Simon has decided to have his first branding workshop. I believe this is a class you or any business NEEDS to attend to figure out how to use technology, how to build community and sales. Later I found out who will already be there.

Besides the three incredible teachers Simon is bringing in I have found out that many of the students in the room are major powerhouses themselves. I can not tell you who, but you will be very impressed. It is worth going just to network with this group.

Guest Teachers and world class experts Carol Cone of Edleman PR, the worlds largest PR Firm and Robert Tercek former president of Digital Media, Sony Entertainment and Creative Director of MTV. Simon is also allowing each attendee to bring for FREE someone from a non-profit, foundation or cause marketing partner you support.

Build a Business Around Your Expertise from Top Revenue Strategist Stefanie Hartman


Stefanie HartmanWe met Stefanie at Rick Frishman’s Author 101. Stefanie often works with authors and speakers to help them “Get it Done” as she helps them with marketing, revenue and other strategies.

Stefanie helps her clients propel themselves to new and higher levels of success.

I was at the conference for three days interviewing authors, speakers publishers, agents and many more excellent guests of Rick Frishman and as I did I would notice Stefanie sitting at a table with someone going over strategies for their business.

I was taken by the intensity and focus she gave each new person that entered the room and sat down with her. They each had her undivided and complete attention. Impressive.

I tried for the three days to get an interview with her as she was only 15 feet away from me at anytime she was in the room, but she had a steady line of clients the whole three days and could not find even a minute to sit with me.

Finally on the last day, I caught Stefanie as she got ready to break to get something to eat. I grabbed her… Sorry Stefanie, I know you and your husband were hungry, and had the wonderful Starley Murray do a short interview with her.

Rick had asked Stefanie to come to his event to help the authors that attended the event, because she has such a great track record of helping authors and other businesses propel their projects to new levels of success. I have never met Stefanie before, Rick has hired her for many of his top clients. That speaks, no pun intended, volumes to me. It turned out great, but I hope to get Stefanie to do a podcast with us soon. – JW
