Is This A Great Christmas Idea Or What?

christmas basketIf you’re a single Uncle or Aunt who struggles with Christmas shopping for an extended family, this idea might just save your Christmas, bank account and sanity.

First, let me just say, I have never been a fan of Christmas shopping and for most of my life I’ve done all my shopping on Christmas Eve.  I would spend almost 3 hours (I know right) shopping for 10-15 gifts.

Now being single with no kids certainly makes it easier than the reverse, but it can be a struggle to find gifts for a growing extended family.  It also takes time and money.

Well, last Christmas I came up with an idea that changed my Xmas Shopping forever..

Why I switched to GeneratePress

I’ve been developing WordPress Themes since 2006.

The first theme I ever created was called “ZipSense” and I made it as a “bonus” for buying an ebook of the same name.  That theme and ebook are long forgotten, but it was my first.

The next theme I created was in 2010 when I was working with Joel Comm.  It was called The Socrates Theme and it was one of my most successful products.  It’s been installed over 200,000 times and still sells today.  That business was sold in 2012 but I help out on their forum when I can.

The next theme I created was called ACME Theme, that sold a few thousand units and went through a few generations of development.

I went on to develop a few other themes but development and support grew tiresome to me.

It’s great having your own theme to sell, but when you add in development and support time, it doesn’t always make financial sense.  Especially in an insanely competitive space.

The Launch of The ION Theory

iontheory-smallI’ve just released a new program to my followers which I’m pretty excited about.  It’s really something that I plan to expand, speak and focus on for the rest of my career.

It’s called The ION Theory.
What is it?  It’s a system of ideas, actions, processes and principles formulated to help its subscribers generate ideas, solve problems and achieve goals.

The theory is called ION because of the actual root and meanings of the word.

-ion Suffix – indicating an action, process, or state.
-Ion Noun – an atom or group of atoms that carry a positive or negative charge.

The idea for the ION Theory came to me when I had to give a presentation on Ideation at a marketing conference in 2012.

At the time it was just a clever hook to give a presentation on generating ideas.  Since the best ideas are usually borne out of inspiration, frustration, observation, the ION words made for excellent discussion points.  

But recently the idea has evolved into something much bigger.
