SWEET CAREER ADVICE: How to Start a Professional Blog Without Losing Your Mind...

Career development day at the Capitalist - TOPIC: How to Start a Professional Blog Without Losing Your Mind.  

I'm 6 years in and I can reduce your pain levels - I've made every mistake known to man when it comes to blogging.  Whatever your speciality or niche, a blog is a great idea.  Only 1% of the population has what it takes to be a content creator.  Are you a 1%er?  The good kind?  Actually, 1%ers are good all the way around.

Here's my game plan for helping you start a blog - slide deck from a recent preso below.  (email subscribers click through to see the slides).  Reach out if you have questions.  I only charge $3,000 an hour.  

Actually, it's much less than that and I've been known to trade for Diet Mt Dew and/or NBA tickets.
