Thanks for this, Danny!

I have a new site coming where I'll just let 'er rip. This way I can drop more F-Bombs like that red headed woman we both know and love ;)

@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes Maybe I'll work up the courage to post on Facebook ;)

1 week, 3 days ago on Why Marketers Should Write Fiction


I've been writing some of my own ... not sure if it will ever be released to the public, but it's something I get lost in. That's all that matters.

Sweet! Rock Hot :) Congrats on everything. Love the new look of the site. The "book a call now" part of your sidebar is golden. Jon's idea or yours? Love it.

Hi Brent,

"the various internet marketing strategies began to coalesce and the lines between the different marketing segments began to blur."

– So very true, in fact I'm working on a 2,500 word post on this very topic ;)

Big fan of Gini's, as you know, so will definitely want to pick this one up! Thanks.

Loved this, Erika. 

I was terrified to speak in front of more than five people ... for most of my life. I've always hated crowds and hated parties even more (unless I was well supplied with scotch or similar ;)) 

I finally had the courage to go to a Toastmasters meeting when I was about 42 years of age. That's when I realized public speaking is stepping into a role and I was amazed at how easily it came after I got past the shaky leg syndrome, and now I'd rather speak in front of a group of 50+ than go to any party.

Now I'm going to start some sort of graybeard introvert club … well that will be part of the focus at my new blog – we'll see how it goes.

Anyway, congrats and thanks for the post! :)

–Just because you can solve a problem, doesn’t mean the problem is worth solving

–Talk to everyone before entering a new industry

–Don’t start a company unless you can commit

–Don’t spend money until it is absolutely necessary.

–Don’t believe in financial forecasts

–Honor the generosity and faith of your family

... Looks like this $50K "experiment" could turn into a 3,000 word "life experience" post ala James Altucher ;)

Hi Danny,

"Basically, the types of post that were easy to write but had little real substance."

–That was where I started ... it was fun while it lasted, but this old dog has learned a few tricks since then. 

You're always so damned honest and that's what I love about your writing, that combined with your generosity is what brought me here in the first place … oh and there is the value you bring ;) 

My current blog will be more and more business-focused, while a new one I'm building is more on the personal development side, for lack of a better term. That's where I'll be 100 percent focused on engagement and I'll finally do a deep dive into Facebook land.

Curious … excited about Brian Clark's new Rainmaker project?

You wake up to find yourself on a desert island. The sun is setting on the horizon. You don’t have long before you are going to be engulfed in complete darkness. You have no idea who you are or what you are doing here.  What do you do?

Just kidding. 

I LOVE this. Here's a few I would ask …

You have inherited $1M.  What charitable organizations do you donate to and why?

What annoys you most about people?

Favorite thing to do when not working?

Would our founding fathers be proud of us?

If given the chance would you go into space?

Worst lie you've ever told?

Who was worse, Hitler or Stalin?

Explain the best way to teach an old dog a new trick.

Are you right brained or left brained?

Tell us how to make your favorite meal?
