MY PERSONAL Memorial Day GOAL: 30,000 Subscribers Plus
I asked you all to help me.
As I reported ISIS hacked my web site last year and brought it down leaving only an ISIS Flag. They don’t have a sense of humor for my calling them a gang of crazy brains. They got mad when I said if they were from Allah why did Allah’s other guys win ? Seems obvious which side of the FORCE ISIS is really on?
But they didn’t get the data base because we military grade your data files always off line with access to you – as in no way what so ever.
So I start all over with my first subscriber at year end. # 1. From scratch. In new even more secure world.
I wanted by five months on the Memorial Day Holiday to pass 30,000 signed up subscribers ( which is free ) Versus the click traffic we get on my way back to 100,000 subscribers and 1,000,000 to follow world wide.
You gave my a present.
This weekend while CEOSPACE was in session we could announce we in fact again passed 30,000 subscribers just as planned five months in – May on Memorial Day in 2018.
So back to 30,000 in 100 nations with my great gratitude from Moscow to Iran from the Gulf to South America from Island nations to the EU from Africa to Australia – you all rock and thank you America for sharing this blog as fast as you do.
Thank you for reading. We’ll do our best to keep the light on for all 30,000 of you. Hey if you share with three we’ll be at 100,000 in no time.
Thank you all and happy Holiday 30,000 milestone is done and counting.
Berny Dohrmann – ON WHAT IS GOING ON OUT THERE
HOSTING CEO SPACE – # 1 BUSINESS CONFERENCE GLOBALLY
CEOSPACE for those who view a video such as: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0g3Oc3Au5DU&app=desktop
A Trade Show That Works by a Silicon Valley Ap developer who shares his millennial experience with CEOSPACE. A fun film actually. On YOUTUBE if you search CEOSPACE you hit our main library which features celebrities you read – know – and regard highly – sharing their take on CEOSPACE.
A thirty year institution has changed a lot since it was founded. I’m happy to report in 2013 I resigned and turned over legacy ownership and management to the next generation and bowed out of my own global invention. Why?
Well partly health issues -my 23 pneumonia’s and 20 hospital ICU’s into 2017 became a bit much for a 70 year old. My doc team said – time to change life style. Pressure. Stress. So I did. Hey I had no idea how much I was under in the deep recession in 2012. WOW. WHO KNEW.
The next generation who have run CEOSPACE for half a decade now have won all the awards and recognitions. They have upgrade the product and made the 140 nation service to clients and members the leading BUSINESS CONFERENCE in the World Today. I could not be more proud.
Every founder loves that LEGACY MOMENT when you KNOW the institution will run – without you – beyond your life – and serve others when your gone and buried. Hey I’m surprised I”m still here in fact. I appreciate breathing more than most of you. Let me tell you.
My doctor is the # 1 ranked Doctor in Florida in 2018 and the top lung document in the State. My Doctor is a member of CEOSPACE as is my general practitioner and they love the results they have had from joining. WHO KNEW. Now we are dear friends. They want to keep me here with in a chronic condition I just “deal with”.
Today I write books.
Today I work to help resolve sovereign debt issues for nations to the extent my health and circles will let me – without pay and as a volunteer – I’m trust a bit more because I don’t want anything.
Its nice to be in that final give back of your own lifetime.
I do teach at CEOSPACE as they wish for me to and I like teaching as I’ve done that for over 45 years. My mentors are great educators including my own father and I hope I’m now reasonable good at my intention to transfer skills to CEO’s. I love doing it.
So next week I’ll be teaching. As health permits. And through next Sunday. This time of year I volunteer to speak at entrepreneur functions and it gets busy. They book me in the winter when I stay home a lot and send me out pacing me when its warm and nice in the Spring and Summer. I love that work from London to Romania to India to Jamacia.
I never know where the team wants me to serve but I love being able to contribute. Retirement as a back and watch sit com’s is not me as I love contribution if I can. Being where I have now years not wanting anything just to give back is such a blessing. Seeing my grand kids is a blessing…they call me G DADDY.
If I am remis on blog posting as often as you wish on news – it is because I’m at CEOSPACE and helping with mentoring and team mentorship when asked in addition to coaching. Trying to offer options on strategy and endless connections as I can hook others up to my contact list. Giving …never take fee’s or stock or anything just contribute without condition – unconditional giving and others join me too its a GIVE BACK FESTIVAL really.
We all treasure CEOSPACE as a wonderful environment to grow business skills, plans, teams and resources. A leading accelerator for business.
After CEOSPACE next week I’ll be more free to interact and we love your comments. I treasure if you disagree and wish to add in values and or you do agree and wish to add in. I always finish a blog with an unstated …AND YOU SAY??????? Comment and SAY.
I personally reply to all comments myself and I so wish to hear yours. If your a regular reader thank you. My goal this week is to announce LIVE if I pass 30,000 subscribers in less than five full months fresh starting my blog in 2018. YAHOO.
We note the opinions stated here are my own. We are not providing investment advice. We are encouraging you to check on our opinions and free speech declarations with your licensed professionals to explore options. We wish to be one of many sources you use to make better decisions. We hope we trigger discussion and debate that helps everyone.
We are never political.
We only speak economically.
Related to the Special Prosecutor – its economic.
Related to doubling the SEC BUDGET its economic.
Related to all our reporting it is opinion only ( mine ) free free to disagree I welcome that or agree I enjoy that – and never take offense as that was never not ever intended.
In todays spin bought and paid for media a blog that defines up to the second events on what is real – economically – what is really going on out there – why that is more than entertainment. That is a share and circulate as we all do better with more and better data.
Do we not?
AND YOU SAY?
Berny Dohrmann – Teaching AT CEOSPACE Coming up for a week what a blessing in my own life to be included still ….although we are all rotated …as CEOSPACE teams keep it new and fresh every time. Biggest one is July for your noodle on joining…in.
CEOSPACE RANKED # 1 CAN”T MISS BUSINESS CONFERENCE BY THIRD PARTY PRESS 2018
CEOSPACE is hosted at world PGA Golf Resort on guard gated 900 acres at Innisbrook Palm Harbor near Tampa Bay. Lifetime memberships for business owners and professionals invite the boss to upgrade skills, and conveyor belt in new clients customers and affiliations in a profit making week ranked # 1 in the world today.
Registration takes five minutes at http://www.ceospaceinc.com. Serving 140 nations it is Tuesday to Saturday and CEO’s are in a break every 60 minutes to connect to their responsibilities in running their ventures virtually CEOSPACE calls CEO Pacing.
Data mining reports the five programs a year, as “markets” to expand customer base for development space firms ramping up, for Fortune firms, and for every level in between makes CEOSPACE as a resource “unique”. Billionaires walk around with millionaires.
Films under the QUICKLINK video tab in the 2018 new web site allow Ceo’s world wide to due diligence, determine the fit, and explore the profit of a membership. Once you own a membership you can return free – for life.
The May and July back to back “markets” present a 30% premium proven RESULT acceleration over the October Dec and March “Business Grow Conferences” due to summer month timing setting up momentum acceleration into the second half of any year when 78% of all global consumer spending maximizes velocity. While all the FORUM’s as members call them are 100% the May event where you seeing forward financially and have more private time with the army of mentors at the top serving the CEO occur, allows the CEO to learn how to use the Conference maximally. July is the largest Conference of any year – because school is out and parents wait a full year to bring their Teens to the award winning TEEN FEAST PROGRAM. July is best harvested by CEO’s who attend May and know now how to maximum the value of the annual larger event. Make sense?
We are always excited to offer our highly ranked program – # 1 in the world for five years in a row globally ( not easy to retain in quality controls ) when we can deliver a 30% premium value to our members. We ask new members are you exploring new client relationships in an organized process interactively nine hours a day Tuesday to Saturday? You will be at CEOSPACE which is always a better week.
As a comparison parents have one priority job. Keep their children safe. Feed them three times a day so they grow. Business owners and professionals in practice have one priority job. FEED your business so it grows – which comes before all other work as opportunity. At CEOSPACE we feed our member business three times a day at meals and twice more in food networking breaks and at least once more in networking games we host on site.
May is one of the favorite classes of our members. Why? They get maximum time with faculty not possible in the larger July market space. If the owner makes a challenge list current to their quarter the $ 200,000 of FREE market rate resolution to the challenge list you created propels your business into the summer like nothing else can or will. That one on one time on your schedule removes every challenge save the ones you forgot to write down related to your business at the moment. Mentors who make millions are better brains to help you. Our members understand they are hiring the mentors they could not otherwise afford to accelerate and they do not wish to wait.
Plus CEOSPACE is as FUN as it is profit making. Members recharge the depletion of running a business or practice. It is lonely at the top for all of us and community of business owners and professionals is a balm elixir all of its own that is replenishing. We all benefit from that recharge do we not?
As we begin a fourth decade of service we have only one mission. To deliver a better quality to our business owners in the next Business Growth Conference than the last. This aspect of the Forum creates tools and tactics that remain yours forever.
As you can run your meetings and business virtually today, the CEO PACING model assures you have time to manage events back home while you pick up new business FEEDING your business many times daily. We pledge to maximize benefits for every hour you spend with us.
Our clients enjoy that the lifetime membership cost has not risen since 1988. They also enjoy the cost is tax dollars deductible and repurposes a second quarter tay outlay into a lifetime asset.
We invite our readers to share the opportunity for a better option coming up May 22nd ( Wheels up Tuesday ) or better come in Monday or even Sunday for a Bonus free extra day on new law capital skills training.
Again everything is fun and you profit maximally in 2018.
Share with business owners you know the OPTION of CEOSPACE. Share the http://www.ceospaceinternational.com web resource site to explore CEOSPACE. See a video under QUICKLINKS. If you desire maximum background go to http://www.youtube.com and search CEOSPACE for a library of celebrities you know well, best selling authors you read often – providing deeper information about the process and how CEOSPACE actually works.
CEOSPACE is the most endorsed global business conference in the world today. However we do not advertise or promote. We invite members from our own community by word of mouth. My blog sends invitations to my readers who are seeking acceleration ( which we guarantee or refund memberships before you depart the hotel – as we will not permit you to take a risk of any kind time or dollars ). Your invited as my readership which is global.
Business owners and professionals in their practices who wish to accelerate growth Tuesday to Saturday of next week swap an ordinary time period for a better improved use of their time.
We do confirm CEOSPACE is a business building machine designed for multiple use by membership. We are as far from a seminar or workshop in technology as a starship is from a SUV. If you want a faster vehicle to transport your growth into the 2018 future, with immediate results profits and outcomes, CEOSPACE is worth exploring. If you want an experience that grows your skill and options CEOSPACE is wroth exploring.
We can promise you CEOSPACE will be an experience like nothing else you have done….in your lifetime. For our Members I remind you that there is a 30% advantage in acceleration to you ( from our data mining in 2018 over all 30 years ) for the May and July programs back to back.
As founder and Chairman I am always excited and proud when we can offer a superior outcome to our guests, at our peak year performance by season weather ( winter is over now ) and the boom economics we all reside within.
These are the GOOD TIMES.
Using these “good times” for full potential is what our May and July back to back “accelerator” programs will deliver to our members.
Thanking my readers for any sharing with their circles who can use an acceleration as timely to their agenda.
Berny Dohrmann – CEOSPACE “IS” GOING ON “OUT THERE”
OIL SUPPLY WORLD WIDE IS SOARING – DEMAND IS FALLING:
Since the dramatic and unprecedented advances in production and manufacturing of the Industrial Revolution from the late 1700s to the early 1900s, humans have been digging up coal, oil and gas for energy.
Except for the introduction of nuclear power based on uranium in the 1950s and 60s, nothing has changed. Today, coal, oil and gas remain the primary sources of energy, fueling human activities around the world.
But the recent and rapid decline in prices of alternative energy sources like wind and solar, and the plunging cost to store them presage a very different future on the horizon – one in which fossil fuels go the way of the dinosaurs, and where in the next 10 years we will see more changes to the energy industry than we have seen in the past 100.
To begin, America only recently achieved its position as the largest producer of oil and gas; a rise made possible by hydraulic fracturing, commonly referred to as fracking.
Even the cost of 3/4 of the planets oil and gas ( under water ) is dropping so that massive off shore finds are annually coming on line into the mix and no end in sight against a price – only phony speculation has up at 75 dollars and after the silly spike – will fall – to the 50’s and stay there if not lower. Its been 29.00 as a low since 2014 and only speculation by Saudi and OPEC investing into future markets wildly on 50 to 1 margin leverage falsely bids the price up but that bid is not sustainable because of these facts. Pure and Simply boys and girls.
Controversial among environmentalists for the danger of environmental contamination many argue it poses, fracking has nonetheless revolutionized the energy industry by raising supply and lowering gas and oil prices.China is Fracking and Africa is Fracking the entire world is going to FRACK right when demand is falling off a cliff never to return ever again. Oil is like Dinosaurs unaware this was their last feeding – ever.
This process of energy extraction involves drilling down into the earth, where previously inaccessible energy reserves can be harvested, essentially fracturing rock to release the hydrocarbons inside.
One major result of the adoption of this new technology and the dramatic drop in gas prices it has produced is the hollowing-out of the U.S. coal industry, reduced from a 35 billion-dollar industry in just 2011, to a 3 billion-dollar industry in 2017.
Using this dramatic shift as an example, we can see the role cost plays in driving the direction of the energy industry. Consider now that solar energy, which has become steadily more competitive as its scale has grown, has gone from producing electric power at $179 per megawatt hour (mWh) in 2009, to $50 per mWh in 2017.
At this rate, solar energy has already undercut gas ($60 per mWh), coal ($102 per mWh), and nuclear energy ($148 per mWh) in cost.
Similar strides have been made in harnessing wind energy sources, with onshore wind costing $40 per mWh and offshore wind sources in 2017 priced at $60.
Posing zero threat to local communities and environments, offshore wind sources are already being adopted by cities like New York, where a contract was recently signed to build an offshore wind farm off the coast of Long Island that will provide power to millions of homes in the nation’s most populous city.
Dramatic price drop
Extensive use of wind and solar energy requires large-scale energy storage to handle their intermittency. The dramatic drop in energy storage costs, from $3000/kWh to $170/kWh in about 20 years, has made increased storage capacity possible, mainly through the development of the Lithium-ion battery.
For the same reason your new smartphone can hold a charge longer, wind and solar energy are fast emerging as a viable and reliable way of powering the entire economy.
Oil and gas will still have a market, though a reduced one, in supplying feedstock to the petrochemical industry for making plastics, and in air and sea transportation, where renewables or batteries are unlikely to be competitive. The drop in demand for oil and gas will, therefore, lower prices and drive out high-cost producers, including most deep-water wells and tar sands.
With power increasingly coming from a large number of intermittent sources and from energy stored in batteries, and with consumers increasingly generating their own from solar panels, the utility model is fast-changing.
The process of passing power from large generators to consumers will not support the complex power systems of the future without utilities taking a more coordinating role.
For these reasons, it is possible and increasingly likely that beyond the middle of this century fossil fuels will play little or no role in producing electric power in advanced economies. And if electric vehicles gain ground, as many in the auto industry expect, the future will be largely free of fossil fuels.
The next decade will be an exciting one for the energy industry, and for those who worry about climate change and the environmental impact of our energy use.
The GREAT REBALANCING of the cost of everything – energy – is taking place – oil king for 100 year is out and planet friendly endless energy – is in. By By Oil betting to profit on oil – why its humbug.
BOB CIRCOSTA THE BIRTH OF HOME SHOPPING ….

Bob Circosta Invented Home Shopping By Helping, Not ‘Selling’
Businessman and consultant Bob Circosta pioneered home shopping and found success in discovering novel products. (St Petersburg Times/Zuma Press/Newscom)
After five years of hosting America’s first shopping channel on a Clearwater, Fla., radio station, Bob Circosta was expecting hundreds of calls to pour in when the program went national on July 1, 1985.
He and Bud Paxson, the station owner, had started selling products on the air directly to the audience in 1977 and expanded to local cable TV. They called it the Home Shopping Club and eventually were taking in hundreds of thousands of dollars daily. Paxson lined up stations across the country for the big rollout.
Circosta kicked things off by announcing that any viewer who called in within the next three minutes would receive a free serpentine neck chain. An auditorium of operators stood by to take the calls, but not one phone rang. He quickly showcased some deeply discounted items and repeated the offer. Five hours later, they had $352 in sales.
“We tried to be like professional news anchors instead of our original approach of just helping our neighbors get great prices on valuable products,” Circostatold IBD. “We returned to our folksy ways, building rapport and explaining why each product could change their lives. Within three months we had reached $1 million in sales a day. The lesson was that the best way to sell is not to sell.”
Circosta, who has made 100,000 presentations and sold $6 billion in merchandise, still pitches on what is now the Home Shopping Network (part of the QVC Group(QVCA)), mentors entrepreneurs on “HSN American Dreams,” and hosts “What a Great Idea with Bob and Chad” with Chad Allen on a Canadian shopping channel.
Circosta, 68, grew up in Shadyside, Ohio. His father owned a bowling alley and entertainment center, and his mom managed a loving home in a supportive community. He attended Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, in the tumultuous years of anti-war protests of 1968-72, earning a degree in telecommunications. His original notion was that he would become a TV anchor delivering breaking news, but he loved interacting with people, so he headed out to Los Angeles to pursue his dream and ended up working in a men’s clothing store. There, he discovered that he hated selling.
Birth Of The Home Shopping Network
A call from his dad changed his life. His father invited him to come live with him in a town house near Clearwater. On arrival, Circosta found a job as a talk-show host for a tiny radio station. One day Paxson came in with a box of 112 avocado-green electric can openers, which he had accepted to settle an overdue ad bill. He announced they would try to sell these on the air for a bargain price of $9.95, if listeners would come by and pick them up.
Circosta resisted being forced back into what he hated, but by the end of the day they had sold all of them. Other merchandise was quickly offered, and they formed the International Suncoast Bargaineers Club. Members bought certificates they could redeem at stores and restaurants, which brought in new customers.
“For the next five years, we were making it up as we went, learning to sell by describing things to a radio audience in a way that became real to them, learning what would later be called relationship marketing,” Circosta said. In 1982, they bought time on a new Clearwater cable channel and soon stopped the radio simulcast, selling on TV in six-hour shifts, sometimes seven days a week.
One thing that sold well, which surprised even Circosta: the AM-FM Radio Telephone Toilet Paper Dispenser (remember, this was in the era before cellphones); 7,000 were sold in the first 10 minutes. Others he thought were great values, like the microwave cleaning solution in a tub, bombed. His longest-running winner is a water filter that only has to be replaced every 25 years, and in various versions has sold in the millions.
“What HSN did was combine two favorite American activities: shopping and watching television,” Circosta said. “These worked well with the rise of e-commerce because it gave people another option if they didn’t want to wait on the phone or go out to crowded malls. Now they can also just punch in the product number while they’re on the phone to place an order. They buy with confidence because they trust the host’s description of product benefits, they can ask questions of the operators, they know everything is very carefully screened for quality before it is offered, and they can read the online reviews.”
Many traits and practices separate the ordinary salesperson from the extraordinary. Circosta’s tips: Research customers deeply, treat the pitch as if it’s being made to only one individual, be authentic in stating the case for buying, make a succinct summary of the value proposition, and learn the presentation so that it doesn’t sound like a canned script.
There are many other aspects of becoming a master salesman, from overcoming nervousness and starting with a “grabber” statement to using variations of “power words” like new, guaranteed and fast.
In “Life’s A Pitch:Understanding the Secrets to Selling from Television’s Billion Dollar Man,” Circosta explains that too many efforts to sell fail to communicate the full value of the product or service. This starts with not thinking about how the features will benefit the customer from the customer’s standpoint.
It seems obvious, but most sales presentations analyze the details too superficially and don’t explain the benefits in a way that has an emotional meaning for the customer that will cause her to buy, he says. What product descriptions need is his WSGAT formula, pronounced “wizgat,” which stands for “What’s So Good About That?”
He gives an example of a 16-inch diamond-cut rope necklace made out of 18-karat gold with a lobster-claw clasp. As he drills into the details, the customer discovers that the length is important because of the way it lays on the skin and can be worn with a pendant that will be seen above the collar. The gold will not tarnish and is a good investment. The clasp is easy to open and close without assistance and very secure.
The customer now realizes this is something she needs, because it would work well with several outfits that make her feel good.
Aside from sales training, Circosta does general business and brand consulting and has worked with many celebrities over the decades, including Bob Hope, Ed McMahon, Suzanne Somers, Jillian Barberie and Patti LaBelle. He’s on HSN with his own products a few times a month, a couple of times a week with entrepreneurs he’s discovered traveling the country for “HSN American Dreams,” and does the live show in Canada once a month. Helping him are his three children from his first marriage: Mike, Chris and Angela.
“I’m excited every day I get up and think about all the possibilities,” Circosta said.
“Bob is the man who has most changed TV in our lifetime, creating a global industry,” said Berny Dohrmann, chairman of the entrepreneur network CEO Space International, at whose boot camps Circosta has taught since 1991.
“When the CEO of HSN gave him the first lifetime achievement award in 2012, everyone there from the cable networks and broadcasters gave him a standing ovation. Bob told them ‘This is just the beginning,’ and direct-to-consumer retailing is now a $350-billion-a-year worldwide marketplace. But more importantly, he is humble, has absolute integrity and has never been especially interested in the money; he just wants to help people.”
Nevertheless, he’s worth $400 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth.com, all from trying not to sell.

Overcame: No model for how to sell merchandise on radio
Lesson: The best way to sell is to just try to clearly explain the full benefits of a product from a customer’s viewpoint.
