Comfort Zone

Blog Networking - How to Be Social to Internet Business OwnersI’ll start this post by making a painful admission:

I SUCK at networking.

Seriously, this is my biggest failure as an Internet marketer.  Although I’ve earned a full-time online income since 2005, I haven’t taken the time to meet many of my fellow entrepreneurs.

It’s hard to admit this because I talk about “Internet success” principles on this blog.  But I’m a *failure* when it comes to one core skill.

Moving forward, I’d like to increase my networking skills.  Unfortunately, I don’t know how to get started.

Here’s where I need your expertise.  I know that a lot of my blog commentators are WAY better at networking than me.  So I’d like to pick your brain and get some help.

I’m asking for a quick favor.   In the comment section below, please list one action that’s helped you with networking.  It can be anything that’s helped you “get on the radar” of fellow Internet entrepreneurs.

I’m hoping to use crowdsourcing to learn more about this invaluable skill.  If we all add our thoughts, this can turn into a quality article about networking.  So please list one “must-do” idea…

All right… In this post, I’m going to shift gears from the general tone of this site. Usually I’m a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of guy who uses humor and personal experiences to get my point across. [click to continue…]

I’m writing this post in a bar on South Beach, Miami; watching Manchester United play Munich in the UEFA Champions League. So I feel it’s only natural to give another update on my long term travel plans.

In the last few weeks, a lot has happened in regards to my trip. There’s not much time left and there are many things I have to get done.

Here are a few things that have happened… [click to continue…]

Eustress vs. DistressWhen it comes to stress, most people live in such a constant state of it, that they rarely acknowledge the pressure it puts on their lives or bodies.

Me? I’m a little different. I have fears like everyone else. But unlike a lot of people, I resign myself to knowing that I’m going to fail. So instead of worrying about overcoming a fear of failure, I simply know that it will happen and accept that it’s a normal part of the learning process.
