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

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
