Questions, Topics & Notes:

  • What happened at the CIA Summit?
  • What was the biggest realization?
  • How do I get rich?
  • well I just want to live comfortably
  • I can’t seem to break the 50k mark in salary :/
  • ~ Tim, Delray Beach, FL
  • I have been so busy working as an independent business owner, I have not done my taxes; any suggestions?
  • will it blend? – that is the question

Will it blend, was brought up because of an interesting article in the Salt Lake Tribune, and a post that landed in Jonathan’s RSS Reader. It’s a simple marketing campaign that is very effective.

Next Q&A will be on April 24th, and Greg will present the basics of copyright and then take questions. Listen to the Q&A4 titled “Video Copyright Producer” where we all have some similar background.

Submit questions when you think of them, then show up at 5:05EST and you can be reminded of your question and ask it live.

Summit Lessons | April 1, 2008

Kelsey Muse Each year I have been to the CIA Summit I have taken something away. Normally a single deep thought that changed the eventual outcome of how I do business, reminders of past lessons learned, and other new ways to view situations. This year was no different, and now the things that impacted me the most will be outlined here. Read more

plans go boom | March 31, 2008

Part of the plan for today was to write up notes from the CIA Summit and email people we meet there.

Instead we are sitting here working on some upgrades to the great little piece of software that runs this and millions of sites across the world.

If something looks wacky here today, it is due to the upgrade process.

A few pages, like the insider pages, are not working properly now. We should have this fixed in a day or two.
