Introduction
Hi, my name is Dan Rippon, and I do internet stuff that makes businesses more money. How are you doing today? 

I'm a freelance SEO and web marketer, running Spinifex Media, based on the Tweed Coast in Far Northern NSW, Australia.

Google+ Community
I'm also the creator and a moderator of the Tweed Business Connections community. If you run a business located in the Tweed Shire, please drop by. The aim of the group is 'pay-it-forward' and promote / refer other businesses, or let everyone know about a great business you've dealt with recently.

Outside of Work
I'm a keen CrossFitter, and my journey along that path has seen me lose a substantial amount of unfit, and gain an equally large amount of life. Without a doubt, walking into a CrossFit gym was one of the best things I've ever done.

I'm also spend as much time as I can surfing, and there's little hope that my kids will be any different, what with their Mum being pretty good on a board too.
Bragging rights
Finished in 64274th place at the 2014 CrossFit Open :)

Spotted a promo billboard for the Netball World Cup coming up in August at the airport, and I think I've worked out what Australia's game plan will be... (cc +Priya Chandra)

It's all gone a bit crazy round our way at the moment. Some bloke called Johnny Depp has been getting helicoptered in to our little piece of paradise for some filming.

Reckon there's more people up on the headland (which is fully cordoned, fenced, and security patrolled off) than there is people live here (circa 580 at the last count).

If you listen carefully, he gives a funny response to someone asking about his dogs at the beginning of this clip: Johnny Depp, sense of humour, confirmed.

Surprised an old friend that's just joined Twitter with this. As a concept, I think it might have legs. Nice one +Gary Vaynerchuk! #goingdeep

OK, I might be a tad slow, but loving the Google Fonts support in Drive. That's just gold for report writing!

Tell It Like It Is Tuesday...
I really like it when people link to my websites, it’s different to a retweet or being told your cool by a stranger over email just before they ask you to publish their guest post about a new device that removes hard skin from feet. A link is the most genuine of recommendations. A link …

Do you take coffee naps?

Been a fan of "Grandpa naps" for years (those Spanish are onto something with their siestas, I tells ya!), but this looks like an interesting experiment to try out...
The first time I ever heard about coffee napping was way back when I launched the original design of the “caffeine: my drug of choice” t-shirt you may now recognize.  We sold it online in the earliest days of the internet.

I'm no cook (seriously, I could burn water), but I gave this brown rice cooking method a run tonight.

Can confirm it works as described, and even got a rave review from my wife. Didn't get the same reaction from the 5 year old though...sigh.
Note: You can use any type of brown rice (long grain, basmati, etc.) If you make this and find the rice isn't quite as tender as you like, add another minute or two to the boiling time.

So many home truths about running a business in today's world right here... Cash is Oxygen

There are "experts" out there pushing books, webinars & seminars and all kinds of crap, sometimes for mega dollars, that aren't worth one episode of this show. Go on, get stuck in.  #askgaryvee
