Every so often I waste my money on things that I don’t really need. That might explain why my storage is filled with about dozen types of stereo speakers, every sort of cleaning device for clothing and god knows how many chairs that I didn’t like. If you are anything like me, you like spending your money on ridiculous things. Then again, isn’t that why you got into the marketing industry, so you’d have the money to spend on ridiculous things? I know that I did.
Two Dell Ultra Sharp Monitors
Whether you have a Mac or a PC, there comes a time when you need to have a better monitor. Perhaps one of the best investments I’ve made is using very large monitors, side by side. First of all, the benefit of the large monitor helps with eye strain and visibility. If you are using a cheap monitor, there is a huge difference on how fast your eye’s get tired and that can make a different in your productivity. Secondly, I highly recommend getting two of them. Two monitors allow you to multi-task better, and that is important while checking stats, loading campaigns. Buy at Dell
Herman Miller Embody Chair – Starting at $1,200
I was one of those people who loved my Aeron Chair, and even bought a dozen of them for my NYC office. However, this chair brings… chairs, to a whole new level. If you aren’t concerned about the chair, realize that bad posture over a long term can create additional issues. Don’t want to be one of those guys who ends up in the hospital with a neck issue, missing out on making more cash. While I’m not sure that it does everything that their brochure claims, including “boosting creativity” it definitely the chair that makes me want to cheat on my other chair. Check it out at Herman Miller
Luna 2 Designer Italian Office Desk by Uffix – $12,000
This has to be one of the hottest desks that I’ve ever seen and itself is a piece of artwork. If you want something impressive that makes you want to work every day, this is a great place to start. It will take at least 3 months to get these desks, but its well worth the wait. A desk for an executive (and yes, affiliates you are an executive of your life) is much needed. Think of it this way: when you sit down every day to a nice desk, you’ll first think how you’ve worked your ass off to be successful, and now can have a beautiful desk to help you be more succesful.
Kohler’s Numi – Starting at $6,000
Good news is that you can actually get this much cheaper, that is the MSRP. The great news is that this is best fricken toilet you could imagine. Seriously this toilet does about everything for you, from opening itself, heating your ass, self-cleaning and even lights up in the dark. Somewhere I believe there is even a reach-around button. I have to be honest, this toilet makes me want to spend more time on the can.
Check out this amazing commercial about the product. I have to admit after watching it, I’m not sure I should be using this for a toilet.
Chivas Regal Royal Salute 50 year old – $10,000/bottle
If you aren’t a scotch drinker, become one. Scotch Whiskey has a tradition of being drunk by the richest people in the world, especially while doing business. The Chivas Regal Royal Salute is one of the best Scotches that you can buy, and I promise that anyone that you invite to your house and offer them a glass of this, will be your friend and customer.
