Heartbreak, Debilitating Fear, and the Craziest Risk We Might Never Take…

There’s a scratch on the back of my brain. It’s a thought that sits there, and niggles at me. It’s not always front-and-center, but it’s always there, reminding me that I’m forgetting something important, that I really should have done by now. For the world, for my audience, and for myself. And no matter what I do, or achieve, it sits there, reminding me that something important still hasn’t been done. It all started with …

Serious @PayPal Problems + Open Letter to @DavidMarcus

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve pulled back the curtain and shared the sordid details about everything that happened behind the scenes with our January launch. I shared how massive success grew past the point of manageability, and turned into an excruciating sense of overwhelm. And I shared all of the nitty-gritty details of the launch; what went right, what went wrong, and what we improved along the way.

The Epic $294,865 in 25 Days Launch Breakdown (and Office AutoPilot Review)

Okay, it’s time. You know about the launch craziness, and the ensuing retreat. You also know about the spectacular numbers; $294,865 in revenues generated in just 25 days in January. Now it’s time for us to pull back the curtain, and share the nitty-gritty on exactly how we did it all. The good, and the bad; what went right, and what went wrong. So buckle up – this is going to be legen… wait for …

Exhaustion, Retreat, and the Excruciating Reality of Succeeding Beyond Your Wildest Dreams

I blinked twice, and rubbed my eyes. It was done. I had just delivered the last webinar of our launch; the last of almost thirty webinars that I had delivered in about three weeks. My day’s work wasn’t close to being over – there was still a mountain of emails to answer, tasks to complete, and loose ends to tie up. But before diving into all of that – before even getting up to make …

Starting An Online Business? The Audience Business Blueprint Infographic (Free Download)

The other day, I asked you if you were interested in the free “Audience Business Blueprint Infographic” that I was making. I didn’t want to spend a bunch of time making this if no one was interested, so I asked you to let me know if you wanted the kit… …if at least 500 people said they wanted it, I said I’d make it. Well, almost ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE wanted it. I was both blown …

Pre-Holiday Burnout: When You *Should* Celebrate, but Just Don’t Feel Like It

It’s that time of year again. Everything is winding down for the holidays, and everyone is in a happy, cheerful mood. This is usually the time to take stock of all the successes that you’ve had, give thanks to those who helped you, and rejoice in your good fortune. And originally, that’s what this post was going to be – a big “thank you” run down of all the great things that have happened over …

Why We’re Moving 184 Videos over to LeadPlayer

When your blog is small, switching to a new video player is no big deal. You install the new plugin, change the embed codes in a few posts, deactivate the old plugin, and you’re done. When you’ve got 184 videos spread across 500+ posts and pages on half a dozen different WordPress installations, though, it’s a HUGE deal. You have to catalogue all the places where you’ve got videos running off of the old plugin. …

We’re excited to bring this new podcast to you in the hopes that you can benefit and learn from hearing a casual conversation with the Freddy Krueger of Blogging. Today we’re going to be talking about a webinar we ran a few weeks ago called Naked Marketing: Alignment, Attraction and Engagement – a webinar that didn’t go exactly as planned, but still ended up being …

Why the Deck is (Unfairly) Stacked Against You When You Are Starting a New Business

Warning: This post is long, and it may not be a fun post for you to read, but I think it’s an important message to share with you… When you are starting a new business, your head is full of dreams. Dreams about the life that you’ll create for yourself, the impact that you’ll make on the community that will assemble around you, and the difference that you’ll make in the world. You’re intimidated to …
