Sometimes we get stuck, frustrated, and purely overwhelmed. I am hoping to be open and honest along my journey as an entrepreneur to inspire you to create something new of your own. Plus, I need to face my fears of making videos and putting myself out there. I say all of this because I want to break through my own bonds of what has been paralyzing me – FEAR!
If you don’t know where you are going you will end up someplace else. – Yogi Berra
My life consist of sleep, food, and travel. I don’t have a home base as of right now. That is one of the cons of SELLING EVERYTHING to live out of a suitcase. I did pick up my RV as a part time living arrangement for when I am not flying off to somewhere those little wheels can’t take me!
I have been studying different media forms and what is gaining traction. With the digital media age we are in people want information lightening fast, so videos are a great way to help interact with your viewers, as well as, to convey your message quickly. 55% of Visitors Spend Fewer Than 15 Seconds on Your Website. Videos give the user information faster than any other traditional Medium.
When I first purchased my RV I did a lot of research about the type of vehicle and RV I wanted. I debated on a drive-able or pull along (aka bumper hauler as a fellow RVer taught me this lingo). Towing can be stressful at first especially when you are alone. Not to mention the dealership just did a 5 minute how to tow a 9000 lb whip around – so I wanted to share some of the things I have learned thus far as my research shows others have a lot of the same concerns and questions as myself.

“As I waited at the light to turn, I was approached by a man holding a sign asking me to donate money. Then I walked into the grocery store and noticed some children outside asking me to purchase some cookies from them. By the time I left the store, I was asked to sign up for a credit card and also donate to a charity.” I felt like I left to grab a $20 item and spent an additional $20 in donations. I didn’t feel so bad for the giving, as much as, I did the lack of care for me as the customer.
Here I am only coming to buy this one item that I budgeted for, planned out, did all the research and knew I was making a good buy. I had time to think and rationalize my purchase. Then, I was approached and asked to give, give, and give some more. How we brand and market ourselves is so important with the advancement of social media. Do you always ask others to do something for you first? Or, do you offer them something and ask how you can help them first.

Several months ago I decided I wanted to pursue a different side of the Internet — it turned out to be “a whole new world”.
I have had the hardest time trying to “niche” down, trying to not “niche” too much and just be myself. I swear it is information overload and crazy to see just how much information is out there.
I read somewhere that we are exposed to over 3000 marketing messages a day.
That should make you think twice about how you are sending your message aka what and how you are telling your stories, post, blog.
What voice is your post portraying? Who are you talking to on the other side of that computer screen? Continue reading Ideas for how to find your “perfect” voice as a blogger
I swear if I read another article on “Procrastination…”
You ever notice when you buy a new car all of the sudden everyone else seems to have purchased the same new whip? What about when you are going through a difficult time and every song on the radio seems to scream your name?
I have this problem with reading. I become obsessed with whatever it is I am into i.e. marketing, writing better, how to make my content stand out, the next blog post idea or place I am about to travel. I begin to see everything in tunnel vision. Continue reading Tomorrow is NO Guarantee: The Benefits of Today
