Embrace that pain.
I read somewhere once that pain is just excitement.
Like fear and love and pretty much every other emotion.
Since it's all excitement, it's all the same energy.

Whenever one of those nasty ol' 'negative' emotions ...more

I read a post on Seth Godin's blog the other day.
It follows nicely with some thoughts I've been sharing with you lately.
Seth was talking about some straw hats he had ordered for a party.
The company sent them in a plastic bag, probably because it's cheaper than a box.
But the hats were ruined.
He didn't get an ...more
There's an awful lot of talk about transparency lately.
And being authentic.
And all the other BS jargon that wannabe marketers toss around when they wanna sound like they're down.

One of them is this...
Entrepreneurs lead with their wallets.

You don't create content.
You're a marketer not a crap-spewing generator of useless netshit.
Hey, I just made a word!
I think it's a good one.
One that should replace the word content everywhere you go.
Whenever you hear "content" think "netshit".
Because crapola is exactly what it is.
And it belongs in the sewer.
Think about this phrase... "Consume a piece of ...more

Do you still fall for it?
The desire to get something for nothing?
For you, maybe it appears as simply hoping for a break.
