Thank you, Ivana. I have seen perfectly capable people take excellent ideas and fail. #1 reason: not believing it is possible to succeed.

Well, youknow the saying "Nowadays, everything's out there for you to learn." Maybe it's cheaper to hire someone for a month as a consultant, but before you do, "self-educate." This step might maximize the time (1 month) you're spending with the MBA and make the MBA respect you "more." It could be a sidejob for an MBA who's already employed as long as it's not a conflict of interest. Lots of MBA workaholics outt there I'm guessing! :)

An excellent article, Ivana. Than you. My consternation is that my morning routine includes going through my "Roadmap to Freedom" (Dream Into It) process ... and I have that on OneNote. Once the computer is on, of course, I need to check the G+ Community I monitor and weed out the spam ... then my email ... then one thing leads to another and I've drifted for hours. It's a tough deal, that's for sure.

I know exactly what you mean +Don Sturgill . I like to drink my morning coffee while going through my emails...pretty soon it's lunch time and the coffee is cold!. I'm a bit smarter now and try to at least exercise in the morning (veery early in the morning) before taking that coffee and facing the day.

One more angle worth considering: Link Building and Guest Blogging are a Lot Like Sex.

Writers ... why not pen that next great piece on a train? Amtrak plans to partner with wordsmiths.

I can't wait until they take this out of the pilot phase.

I've been having trouble receiving mail via don@donsturgill.com, a GoDaddy hosted domain. Various troubles, but all culminating in mail frequently getting returned to the sender as "Undeliverable."

The solution has been to ask folks to just use my g-mail address. No one has complained about bounce-backs there.

Two things I'm wondering:

1) Are you having any trouble with any of your non-gmail hosted accounts for email (whether GoDaddy hosted or not)?

2) Do you believe the following explanation from GoDaddy?

In a nutshell, the GoDaddy (GD) rep told me the government has cracked down on spam (apparently, a Congressman was spammed and didn't like it, so he wrote a law). Email hosting sites are now required to tighten up on what can and can't get through the filters. To ignore the feds is to get huge fines. The reason Google mail still works is because Google is paying off the feds. At some soon point, though, that system will collapse and the millions of businesses depending on Google will be in deep stink. The solution: Sign up for Microsoft 360 hosting via GoDaddy.

So, what do you think? Is GoDaddy leaking the next conspiracy theory ... or have the GD technicians been trained in ninja selling techniques?

GoDaddy is notorious for screwing with people's accounts Don. I sincerely hope you did not register your domain with them. They are also known to refuse to let you move your own domain elsewhere, even though you own it. Don't play with fire, GoDaddy is a huge company, they are using scare tactics and blowing smoke up your ...

Move to managed wordpress hosting. It's been amazing for me!
