As Rosanne Rosana Dana would utter, "its always something".
Since 2000, having survived the y2k scare, Dien and I have had an adventure. I've created over 200 proprietary information products, from HOTSHEETS TO COURSES and had a few travel adventures, which I documented my journey here.
And Dien, went to S. Korea to teach English, went to West Africa as an Importer/Exporter, we listened to Harvey Brody and established our own TOLL POSITIONS, one being SowPub, now 23 years old.
One day at a time. Bit by bit.
Now we've learned a lot, shared a lot and here we are today.
What lessons are there?
Well, one of the biggest is, one found in the very beginning. You learn by DOING.
Professor Rice, his Ph.D. in physics and ten bux still gets him a Starbux latte.
He embraced selling, copywriting, and put himself out there with his Korea and African adventures, got married, had a kid and now is approaching his mid life with gratitude and happiness.
Well, DOING is what is important.
If I have any wisdom at all to depart, it is; DO, try, fail (cause you will) fast, rethink, adjust, and have a goal before you.
Now I don't like to get BOGGED DOWN, although I have many times, usually by biting off more than I can chew. One of my many faults.
But I stand by this:
Get SOMETHING out there quick. Build and expand. Keep going. Learn to automate. Let tech do a lot of the lifting.
KEEP IT SIMPLE, avoid the quagmires, quick sands, and quandaries of uncertainty and adjust your behavior to get back on track.
So. What are you doing today? Are you too building on your past?
