Episode 028 Transcript
Digg is Dead – Is Google Next?
I’m back on the mic in the great state of Texas. It’s great to be home. I have been all over the world. I’ve been to India, I’ve been to Florida, I’ve been to Galveston, Texas, I’ve been to Taiwan recently, I’ve been all over the place. It’s really great to be back. I’ve done a pitiful job of staying on the mic during that time and for that I do apologize.
I do thank all of you who took the time to send me a friendly and encouraging tweet or Facebook post asking where the next episode of the show is. This is the next episode of the show, it’s episode 28 and I really appreciate you guys being here.
I’ve got lots of excuses for why I have been having trouble getting this show out. There’s lots of stuff going on at my day job. One of the things that I try to do in the Mason World brand, the whole idea is this part time internet marketing thing and how do regular people like us figure out how to build a successful business online. I call it late night internet marketing, building businesses one night at a time because that’s really what I try to do. The challenge is sometimes life really gets in the way, it’s just really complicated.
Last episode I shared with you my tips for how I think you can fight that. Sometimes you can win and sometimes you don’t win and you have big gaps, delays, or projects get delayed. I think one of the big tips that I should have had in that episode is a tip I’m going to give you right now.
You’ve just got to get going again. When you realize some water has gone under the bridge you can go ahead and get started again. After all, the future is all out in front of you and there’s no time like the present and all of those great clichés like that.
If you’ve got a project out there that you haven’t made as much progress as you wanted or you let a couple of days go by and those days have turned into a couple of weeks and all of a sudden you’ve gone a month without publishing your weekly podcast, like I did, that’s okay. Get back on the mic, get back on the keyboard, send out that next blog post. You’ll find that once you get that moment rolling again that’s usually the kind of thing you’re going to need to get yourself started and you can build from that. That’s okay.
The important thing, I think, is not to give up. Most of the people that I’ve seen in internet marketing who fail often times it’s because they’ve given up too soon. One of the sayings that I love is, “Behind every instant success is a 10 year story that you don’t know about.” I think that’s almost always true. There are all kinds of struggles and failures and difficulties that people have behind the scenes that you never know about, these famous people and exactly what happened to them or how they got to where they got.
Just keep slugging away at it and I’m going to do the same thing and hopefully that will be helpful to you.
