The Ben Cummings “Blunt Force Success” Podcast Series



You may have noticed what seemed to be more deals in the retail-sphere this holiday season, with even more on the way. You wouldn’t be wrong in that observation.

Across all markets, including Amazon, the sales season has been purposely stretched in order to relieve pressure on the two, singular sale days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Amazon, not unlike other retailers, is making the shopping event starting on Thanksgiving calmer. Deals are no longer constrained to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Instead, they are spread out over days leading up to it and continue once it is over …

The Shape Of Cyber Five 2019 On Amazon



A lady is in an accident and is in the hospital. While there she’s visited by God.

“Am I dying?” she asks.

“No,” He says. “You have 30 more years to live.”

Excited, when her recovery is done she decides to stay on and get a whole battery of plastic surgery. All the nips, all the tucks, all the plumps and everything else she can afford.

When she’s done she looks like a new woman.

As she’s leaving the hospital she’s hit by an ambulance and dies.

At the Pearly Gates she finds God and asks, “I thought you said I had 30 more years to live?”

He looks at her a moment, then recognition dawns. “Ah!” He exclaims. “I didn’t recognize you.”



“Failure is success in progress.”
