Difference Between Websites And Blogs

blog, website, computer, laptop, tablet, smarphone

What’s up ? This is THE stephane ANDRE !!! I heard Olivier Roland’s tips and I learned some good stuff.

Often people ask themselves this question to start a company on internet: “What is the difference between a website and a blog ?”.

The answer is that there is no difference because a blog is a website. To be more precise, a blog is a type of website because there are websites that aren’t blogs. A blog is a type of website in which the content is published by antichronological order (it means that the last published article is displayed first). It’s possible to have a static home page for blogs, this is an option.

In the case of e-commerce, a blog can be a complementary website to attract qualified prospects. I take the example of fitness. You have a company that sells fitness accessories (weightlifting belt, squat knee sleeves, etc). You create a website to sell your products with Prestashop , Shopify , Magento . By creating another blog type website, you share content that will interest your potential clients, fitness fans.

On the blog, you share articles like: “Protect you back with these 4 strength coach secrets” or “7 exercises to build your strength and power foundation” or “How much protein, fat and carbs should you eat to lose weight”. Topics that interest people who do fitness. You have to publish content to attract qualified prospects, it means, qualified prospects who are likely to buy your products.

Study case

analysis

It gives a huge advantage compared to your competitors who don’t do that.

Here is a concrete example. Bonnegueule is basically a blog about French men’s fashion. But the Bonnegueule’s founders did more than what infopreneurs usually do (sell online training and ebooks) They created their own clothing brand in collaboration with fashion designers. Since 2014, they have 3 physical stores in France.

What is innovative with Bonnegueule is that on the products sheet of clothes, there is the complete details of the materials used, tips to be elegant with the clothe, how to associate this clothe with others, tips for good maintenance of the clothe and the fashion designers pictures.

With all this people see Bonnegueule as advisers and not sellers, even if they sell products. And that makes a huge difference in the relation with clients.

It’s also smart to create multiple types of content (text, video, audio) on other platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, Facebook or Soundcloud to attract other qualified prospects to other locations.

Bad Fitness Tips

bad advice

I read a Nerd Fitness article  and I learned good stuff.

In the fitness world, there is a lot of contradictory information and it’s difficult to be healthy with this mess.

This for this reason I’ll give you  advice that my old friend Bobby told me so it’s Bobby who talks and Bobby says :

Clothes

fitness clothes women fitness clothes men

It’s important to have nice expensive sneakers to have results. You need to have the lastest Nike/Reebok/Puma/Adidas/etc.

For clothes, you need to have spandex pants because it helps to burn fat in thighs. You burn fat faster by doing less effort.

The gym is a fashion show.

Material

nautilus multi exercices machine

Abs machines

You need to have a machine like Ab Coaster, Ab Roller, Ab Chair, Hawai Chair (it’s the best ) . Abs, it’s life.

A training without being exhausted

It’s stinking to be exhausted after a training session, this is why that Flex belt is pratical . This is something else, Weight loss wraps . You put that on your body and your body becomes thinner, this is cool.

Shake Weight

If you’re a lady and you want to have arms toned, Shake weight  is for you. You do it 10 minutes per day and you’ll have results.

The 562 movements machine

Do you know Nautilus machine ? It’s the same thing. You sit down, you move your arms and legs and you’ll have a pro bodybuilder’s body. Don’t use free weight because it’s really heavy and really difficult to use.

Treadmill

It’s a machine when you use it, you feel like you’re walking on a hill. It’s better than walking outside.

If you want buy everything, I advise you to take a credit. Don’t worry, your bank will like it. Look this new generation of treadmill.

Training

luxury gym

Most expensive gym

I advise you to choose the most expensive gym of the town with the most machines as possible. You need to avoid free weight because it’s hard to be with people who lift dumbbells and barbells.

Subscribe to all gym’s classes

You need to participate to all gym’s classes like jazzersize, boxersize, supersize, sweatin’ to the oldies, dub-steppin’ to the newies, etc. You can just do one lesson, it’s cool.

Free weight

This is for lady. You need to don’t lift dumbbells or barbells otherwise you’ll have a bodybuilder’s body. If you need to lift a weight, I advise you to take the lightest weight and do 50-60 repetitions. Attention, you must not lift dumbbell more than 1.3kg (3lbs).

Change your program all 4 hours

By this way you shock your muscles. You need to change your training program very often to prevent your body from getting used to. There is 28-day workout split, it’s excellent. Tomorrow, it’s « left arm » day.

Diet

diet pills

Doesn’t change your diet

You don’t need to change what you eat. The proof is there are gym that offer pizzas and bagels . You need to take a lot of pills and shakers to have an athletic body. Diet pills, fat burner shakes, mass gainer, double up muscle building power, etc.

Supermarket

At the supermarket or grocery, you avoid all fruits and vegetables. Anything that doesn’t have labels « low-fat », you also avoid. You need to have healthy preprared meals. If on the labels there are 50 unpronountable ingredients on the label, it’s good.

Take everything that has the label « low-fat » like ice-cream, bagels, bread, cookies, french fries, etc. Takes whatever is « low-fat » is healthy.

If you don’t like to do shopping you can buy salads in fast-foods. Salads are healthy like macaroni salad, potatoes salad and deep fried ball of lard salad.

Energy drinks are excellent for you health, you can drink it like you want. It’s better than water.

Here was advices of my old friend Bobby. You smart and I know that you noticed that ALL THESE ADVICES ARE CRAP. Sadly, a lot of people think that these advices are useful and they become crazy when they don’t see results.

Tips For Eating At Restaurants And Staying Healthy

restaurant

I read a Nerd Fitness article  and there is good stuff.

It’s easy to prepare our meal when we’re in our headquarter because we have all ingredients but when we go eat at restaurant, it’s not the same thing and we enjoy to eat anything.

Eat at restaurant = unhealthy meal ? No, not cecessarily

If we have go to the resaurant, whatever reason, we can make change when we order a menu that help us to eat healthy.

Teddy Roosevelt (the 26th president of USA) said  :« Do what you can, with what you have, where you are »

Restaurants

restaurant

Here are techniques to help to eat healthy when you’re outside.

Explores the menu before

Explores menus on the restaurant’s website and pre-selected your options before to go to the restaurant. This avoid you to struggle to have the willpower to eat healthy when you’re going to place the order.

If possible ask to place your order first. Whenever the server asks who wants to order first, speaks ! If you’re the only person of your group of friends who eat healthy, this will help you to not be influenced by the Matrix (pizza, french fries, etc). This avoid too to heard this sentence : « live a little ! ».

if you order first, the opposite can happen. You can influence your friends to eat healty and it’s cool.

Ask for help from your server

If you see a menu that who like at 80 %, don’t be afraid to modify the menu. This happens all the time and the server really doesn’t care. A chicken sandwich can become a plate of meat and vegetables.

99 % of the restaurants where I go give me a plate of chicken and vegetable, if I ask for it, even if it’s not on the menu. The goal of restaurants is to make clients happy.

Order water

Order always water rather than soda or other sugary drink ! Processed sugar is bad. You want someting with taste ? Sugar-free Ice tea.

Avoid fast-foods

Go to a grocery or a supermarket to find hot good food.

Avoid french fries

Order potatoes baked, grilled or steamed.

Not chips, bread or popcorn

Ask your waitress to not bring them.

Big entree

If the entree is huge, ask to decrease protions. This avoids eating a meal at more than 3000 calories.

Eat slowly

It take 1 minute to your brain to realize your stomac is already full. Slow motion, enjoys the conversation of people with who you eat.

manges.

Joker

If you friends harass you with « live a little », explain them you have an allergy or a weird reaction with some kind of food (you can lie, it’s for the good case). You will see, they will help you to eat healthy.

Not force to eat all the plate

According to the culture from where you come, not eating the whole plate can be rude. Put a napkin on the plate and ask to take the rest for home.

Stay cool

so serious

Remember that you’re human. If you decide to eat an unhealthy meal and it not a cheat meal, you don’t do anything bad. Your human, your scheldule can be crazy, and somethimes you just want to eat a pizza. It’s OK. Remember that there is nothing wrong, if it’s a conscious decision and you have chosen to do it. But the next meal must be healthy to back to good habits.

A unhealthy meal will not destroy your day but if you thind « I ate unhealthy at the lunch, my day destroyed. I will eat unhealthy tonight and I will eat heathy tomorrow ». This type of thinking destroy your lifestyle, this is really bad.

Managing Haters

haters

I read a Nerd Fitness article  and there is good stuff.

Imagine you’re in a restaurant with your friends and the order is :

  • Person A : Chicken and broccoli, please !

  • Person B : I’ll have fish quinoa and a salad please.

  • Person C : I’ll take the steak, asparagus and sweet potato, please.

  • Person D : I’ll take a hamburger and french fries, please !

In this situation, we see that person A,B,C are healthy and person D is overweight. Do you see person A,B,C say to person D :

  • « Are you seriously going to eat that ? »

  • « Are you sure you should be eating that ? »

  • « You’re overweight enough, you should probably eat more like us ».

Obviously no ! Person A,B,C will not say that, it’s too rude.

Now, imagine this 2nd situation :

  • Person A : I’ll take a medium pizza with sausage and side of garlic bread.

  • Person B : I’ll have the chicken parmesan pasta and salad with extra ranch.

  • Person C : I’ll please have the lasagna and let’s get nachos for the table.

  • Person D : I’ll take a chicken salad please, dressing on the side.

You can see person A,B,C say to person D :

  • « Oh come on, why eat like that ? »

  • « Come on, live a little ! You’re too skinny already »

  • « Jeez, I feel bad for you having to eat like that »

If you’re a healthy person, you live the 2nd situation more often than the first.

When people eat unhealthy foods, everybody is silent but when someone eat healthy food, everybody talk, everybody complains !

Haters gonna hate

haters gonna hate

The truth is most people don’t like change. They want change but they don’t put effort to realize them. When they see a person do positive change, it makes them feel insecure about their lifestyle.

Rather than change themselves, they prefer :

  • Try to pull you down to their level saying « live a little ! »

  • Decrease the magnitude of your results saying « with all you effort you make, you have only that as results »

  • They explain to you why they can’t change saying « it nice for you »

All these comments serve only for haters feels good about themselves. They’re afraid to change their lives and fail or they tried one time and they failed and see you succeed is the proof that they have really failed.

All these haters in our lives can really make us depressed. We feel we’re the only « mutant » who want evolve and we must be the pariah of the group.

Seth Godin said : « You will be judged or you will ignored »

If you’re afraid that people judge you because you try to change your life by having a healthier lifestyle, you have another option : be ignored. Be part of the mass, be a number. There is nothing exciting but it’s without danger.

How

how to

Haters are inevitable and there is ways to deal with.

  • Understand judgments are inevitable

    We’re judging every minutes everydays. Be judged because we « eat healthy and do exercices » is too cool, it’s amazing. It requires a mental change to ensre that it is a « badge of honor » for being the « weird one ».

  • Consider the source

    Constructive criticism can help you to be better. But if you’re criticized by someone who is unhealthy, overweight and miserable, it’s not worth to have interest to this criticize. You can answer with a smile : « I know, I weird, right ? ».

  • Board them

    We have friends and family who want change too but we don’t realize the damage from their comments about our efforts. Explain them what you try to change and tell them you would like to have their support and their help.

  • Reevaluate your best asset, your time

    Analyses the 5 persons with who you spend your most of time. Are they negatives people who never reach theirs goals ? If that is the case, you’re surrounded of people who will never help you to reach your goals and you will end up like them. Be surrounded by people who already reached goals you want to reach to exceed your limits. It’s an excellent motivation to see a person live your goal.

  • Understand you’re not alone

    With internet ew can find communites or groups that share the same values to have a healthy lifestyle. Do a search and sigh in. You can still have unhealthy friends and family but spend more time with people who are healthier and stronger than you.

How do you deal with haters until now ?

motivation

Comment rester motivé quand tout votre entourage ne comprend pas pourquoi vous vous entrainer autant ? Et je ne vous parle même pas des faux ami(e)s qui vous accompagnent 2-3 fois à la salle et puis qui vous balancent 1000 excuses pour ne pas venir.

“Arrête tu es assez musclé !”, “Trop de muscle c’est moche, arrête !” “Arrête Steph, on passe plus du temps ensemble (ouais, à rien foutre surtout ouais)”, ” Arrête et viens de te bourré la gueule et fumé des spliffs avec nous”, “Tu nous manque, blablabla”.

Ce genre de speech, ça met la pression et on dort mal. Par contre, une petite video bien sympa de personnes qui sont plus en avance sur moi et vous, qui en plus, vous partage leurs expérience (c’est là qu’on voit qu’on vit tous ce genre de sentiments et franchement ça rassure un max). Voilà comment, je garde ma concentration pour atteindre mes objectif.

TiboInShape

TiboInShape est le 1er que j’ai découvert et j’ai tout de suite adhéré à son humour. Un mec barraqué qui déconne c’est trop cool et en plus maintenant il a ses T-shirts.

BodyTime

bodyTime

 

BodyTime, c’est quand j’ai vu une vidéo avec TiboInShape. Je me suis dit WOW, les mecs ils se connaissent tous ou quoi !?! (un  peu comme Mister V, Norman, Cyprien, Hugo tout seul et je m’arrête là parce que toi même tu sais la liste est longue…..). Les mecs sont plus techniques que TiboInShape et ça complète bien. On voit que ce sont des coachs qui connaissent bien leur métier et qui proposent tellement d’approche différentes que tout le monde trouve son bonheur, D’ailleurs les mecs ont un progrmme de muscu maintenant c’est le programme Apollon et Déese.

Juste pour info, j’aimerais dire que ce n’est pas en 6 mois ou 1 an que le corps va se transformer en corps de model de magazine de Fitness mais ça prend quelques années, c’est pour ça que ça devient un style de vie. Donc on lâche rien chaque poids soulevé et minute courru  compte pour devenir ce qu’on aurait dû être.

La bande de YouTubers Aesthetics

PS: Aujourd’hui, au boulot un client, genre 50ans, m’a dit qu’il n’y croyait plus à la retraite parce qu’il va sûrement mourrir d’un cancer comme tous ces potes qui tombent comme des mouches. J’étais genre “arrête tes conneries”. Il me dit: “Tu vas voir bientôt, avec le stress du boulot et la mal bouffe, ça fabrique des générations de faibles qui meurent tôt, désolé petit. Mais toi t’es sportif alors je me fait pas de souci pour toi mais fait gaffe à la tentation. Je suis encore choqué mais j’ai bien retenu la leçon, c’est pour ça que dans quelques minutes je vais m’entraîner et continuer à faire mes Tupperwares LOL.

 

Allez pour rire un coup, la bande de YouTubers comique
