Terrified, Funny, Suck-Loving Humans and a Heartfelt Goodbye

About 6 years ago, I answered a Craigslist ad to become a marketer’s assistant. In doing so, although I didn’t know it at the time, I took the biggest, most audacious step of my life to date, and it meant more change, more personal growth, and more opportunity than I ever imagined. And I’m about to take another one. After many long and wonderful years working with Danny and the team at Mirasee, it’s time …

Bouncing Back After a Business Failure

So you screwed up. What next? There’s something you notice a lot in online marketing – the story of how an entrepreneur tried, failed, recovered and then succeeded. It’s a good story and an important story. But it kind of misses a little something sometimes. Let’s be honest.

Early Signs of Online Audience Business Success

Last month was kind of a special month for me. On around the 15th of April, I celebrated 5 years working with Danny at Firepole Marketing. Now, 5 years may not sound like a lot – but for a millennial who, pre-Firepole had almost 40 different jobs (most of them sucked), it’s kind of spectacular.

Project ABC: Goodness Gracious, It’s Actually Happening…

I’m really excited. Okay – I’m usually really excited – but today more so than others. Today, I’m excited to tell you about the last year at Paying for Life, which has gone from an idea to a blog with about 650 people paying attention to it. This is small potatoes in the blogosphere – but it feels HUGE to me. Note from Danny: This *is* huge. Megan has grown almost as much in her …

Planning a Business Retreat: One Step Back for Two Steps Forward

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. Or months. Or years. You’re doing your time, responding to your emails and blog comments, reaching out and building new relationships, and always creating content, thinking about the future and planning what you’ll need to get there. It can be exhausting, and no matter how much you love what you do, how passionate you are, or how much it all matters, you can’t keep this up forever without …

Project ABC: Tiptoeing Towards a Business

Hello Again! Well – it feels like it’s been ages since I’ve written one of these! I’ve enjoyed reading the posts, updates and lessons from our wonderful ABM students – and I’m happy to be back with some news and progress to share with you as well. Summer is, if not technically, pretty much over. It’s been fun, and it’s been busy, and some of it has even been relaxing – but the leaves are …

Lessons Learned from Our Biggest-Ever Business Education Experiment

Everyone has a reason that they get up in the morning. For some people, it’s family and friends. For some it’s faith. For some it’s art. For some, it’s a passion, or obsession. For many of us at Mirasee, it’s about business and education. So when Danny shared his idea to take a giant, scary, expensive risk in the name of business education – we were apprehensive – but it felt right. Giving small business owners …

Ask the Readers: What’s Wrong with Webinars?

If you’re active online, then dollars to donuts, you’ve attended a webinar of one kind or another. Some of them are sleazy pitches, and some of them are valuable learning opportunities. If you’re running a business online – maybe you’ve run them too – they have a tendency to work really well in terms of getting tons of new subscribers interested in what you’re doing. We believe strongly in the webinar as an engagement, and …

Awesome Engagement Strategies Contest Winners

This has been an amazing month for Mirasee, and it’s largely because of how well our finalists and community have done at making the Awesome Engagement Strategies contest such a gigantic success. I am floored, blown away, honored and thrilled that everyone worked so hard, and did so well. Not only have we gotten a taste of a huge variety of amazing engagement strategies, but I feel like we’ve really gotten to know many members of this community in whole new …

Today, in Fireside Chats with Danny Iny, we’re going to be talking about something that everyone thinks about, most people want, and few people would say they have enough of… Money. 😉 Specifically, we’re going to be talking about monetization, and turning the audience you’re working so hard to build, into an income that you can live on and more. This is one of the things that we get asked about the most by new …
