thanks to Michelle Ulrich of The
Virtual Nation. Now that you've got your virtual team in place, how do
you make sure everyone is on the same page?

"There's no way I can hire anyone to do what I do. No one can do it as well as I can."
Do you resemble that remark? If so, you've got much in common with most other
business owners in the world. We never think that anyone else will give
something the time, attention, and dedication that we will. And, you're right,
to some degree. No one cares as much about your business as you do. However, if
you don't choose to delegate those…

Today was hot and horrid, as days go. Nothing particularly bad happened, just one of those days that beats you to a pulp and leaves you struggling for air.
When I got up this morning I had many things on my todolist for today. I figured I'd whip them off one by one and be done by noon, when I needed to start playing taxi driver for the kids, but that didn't happen. About an hour into my list the phone began to ring, life began to get in my way, and I suddenly realized God had a…Continue

I've been reading Seth's Godin's great book, "All Marketers Are Liars." The subtitle offers a more accurate description of the contents: "The Power of Telling Authentic Stories in a Low-Trust World."

First of all, Hello!
Second, I have a question based on the recent note in John's newsletter about people sending in less than polished letters to edtiors etc.
It continues to amaze me that writers do this, especially when they have more access to editors than the average person. I'm wondering if people don't seek out editing because they feel embarassed they need help writing as a writer, or if it's to save time, don't know who to turn to etc.
Whether you'd like to…Continue

This morning I was busy posting to my website a new article I'd written and I realized I hadn't edited it completely. There was a paragraph at the bottom that didn't make as much sense as I had hoped it would. My cutsy details were missing definition and comprehension, so I took them out.
Then I considered how often I find myself editing out a 20 second slot of work on a book... It's pretty often. When the reality is that what I wrote to begin with belongs in the book. But, editing…Continue

I always thought writing was a challenge. It was my passion, but at the same time I felt it was challenging. How could that be? What I learned is that it wasn't really writing at all that was a challenge, it was myself. What I mean is that is was pracrasination, doubt, inconsistancy, can I really accomplish this, and the like.
I am happy to say I've gotten past that. Well, at least for the most part. I now read a lot and I write a lot to improve my craft of writing. And I only think…Continue
