Building the business of your dreams takes a certain amount of moxie, tempered with an outsized amount of patience, slathered in perseverance. It also requires a clear vision, something often not obtained until you begin moving forward without it. That last bit has been where I quagmire out the most. Due to my makeup, trainings, and all else, I easily get confused as to which way is the best way forward from all there is about me to pick from. But the vision has been getting clearer every year, with some dramatic gains in clarity taking place just in the past few months. It's funny. I actually started getting down about things back in the Fall. Yet "getting down" just isn't something I am normally concerned about. Regardless of results, I am consistently too focused on remaining proactive and trying to find the positive that has to be buried in the shit covered negative of whatever's ailing me most at any one time. But I got down a bit, nonetheless. Things weren't working out as planned. And the plan itself was not speaking to my heart as it once was. I realized I was in the beginnings of a Big Rework Well, nothing's actually changed all that much. It's been more of a refinement of ongoing processes, coupled with a fresh dedication to using a system I invested heavily in almost a year ago, yet never used. I even–accidentally–found a partner to help me implement and expand upon the use of that system, the purpose of which, I'll reveal in the coming months. I got out of that funk. And as I began pondering what to speak on next, the Jason Leister article below jumped out at me from the list. Very apropos for what I was recently experiencing. You'll experience it all too. So read what the man had to say on it all. You'll thank me one day for leading you to him. Subscribe To OJ Podcast!

I have now broken all contact with Craigslist. Committed to my future online and with my new partner. My latest Big Fight was whether to focus on marketing or self help as a business focus I'm going to do both! I forgot to mention in the podcast: I was an extra in a white supremacist flavored TV pilot, filmed right here in Kingston, NY! (My Jamaican-heritaged wife got a huge kick out of that!)
