Is what you are currently doing with your website meeting your expectations?

If it is, and you have zero website shame, then you can move on from this article. If your website isn’t converting sales, newsletter signups, etc., you are not alone…
Websites, like bed sheets, should be changed and cleaned way more often than they usually are.

Feedback has a 10th degree black belt in the art of derailing progress.

Early stages of building and creating can be very vulnerable. You don’t have thick enough mental armor to block the attacks of feedback. Especially from non-credible sources.
I’ve always been fascinated by the music industry. Not necessarily the labels, insane deals, and celebrity status but mo…

Podcasting hasn’t reached bubble status yet. It hasn’t jumped any proverbial sharks (although I personally think jumping sharks sounds kind of cool). It’s a wide-open playing field that’s gaining a lot of great attention and momentum, and is becoming more accessible than ever.
The Zoolander references stop with the title of this article. Now I want to talk to you about my current favorite medium…

No amount of marketing, PR, advertising, will trump the power of word-of-mouth. Build something worth talking about and worth sharing. If your business isn’t worth talking about or sharing, why are you wasting your time working on it?
If I were to start a new business right now and had no experience, no connections, no specific idea, and very little mon…

By avoiding the process of creating and only consuming, you’re denying the world your gifts.
Today is the day you admit something. Today is the day you flip the switch, and take a different direction. Today is the…

When I decided I wanted to write more consistently, I sat down at my laptop one day and popped open a Word doc.

I stared at the blinking cursor on that blank white page for what felt like forever. That’s about the time that I disappeared into the catacombs of YouTube. I was begging to be distracting by anything that didn’t feel like that Mount Everest of Word docs.
I published over 140 articles and released my first book in the past two years. I also threw away about 90% of the words…

I stood on the side of a stage, moments away from getting up in front of 200+ people. The woman who was speaking before me asked me: “what are you talking about?” To which I confidently responded “I don’t know, I haven’t decided yet.”

As the former president of the "I Got Burned Out And Didn't Think It Would Happen To Me" club, I'd highly recommend trying to avoid burnout.
Success is simply a byproduct of hard work. Success doesn’t fix problems. It doesn’t heal wounds. It’s merely an outcome…

It's been quite awhile since I've done anything with video. This is a short movie about fear and how it doesn't have to paralyze us.

The words in the movie read:

"What’s the worst that will happen? If you answer that question honestly and really drill down, the fear you have won’t be so paralyzing. In fact, the fear you once had might seem trivial. We aren’t born with it, fear is something we learn over time."

Your video of course made me think. Most of Jason Does Stuff does make me think. It makes me think - yep, I can do that.
Thanks for that laid back approach you have that makes it all seem possible.
Please let Dexter Britain know that the music he provided for this video was really good.

Simply having ideas doesn’t make you creative. We don’t remember famous inventors for all the inventions they thought of but never brought to life (they do have a ton of those though). We remember famous inventors for the things they actually built and created.

True creativity comes when ideas are given a chance to live.
Creativity is not just for artists, musicians, writers, and designers. We are all creative, but the folks who are known …

It seems as if our days are filled to the brim. It feels like there are never enough hours in the day. This makes it nearly impossible to find creativity and inspiration.
If the work you are doing makes you feel busy, then the work you are doing doesn’t truly matter to you. Work worth doing…
