Busy week. You, too?
My big goal for this week was to complete recording of a new video course that I will be releasing soon. This will be a 30 day training program on how to transform your blog into a site that actually achieves the aims you set out for it. And, it will be completely free. Details soon.
One “lesson” I will pass on is this…
Set deadlines for yourself.
I had been working on these videos less than efficiently for a few weeks. Then, this week, I just decided “fuggit” and I set a deadline to get them ALL done before the end of the week. It also helps that I’m part of a mastermind group here in Tampa where we hold each other accountable.
Tasks will expand to fill the time alloted for them. So, set deadlines to ensure that you don’t allow yourself a lot of time. Get things done.
OK, from the homefront this week:
- How To Start A Podcast: An In-Depth Guide From Planning to Launch Day
- TBP004: Blog Evaluation Checklist: What I Look For When Consulting People On Their Blogs
Also, next week, I’ll be hosting a webinar with Jonathan Mead. I emailed out my main list about it already. It should be a great webinar. To learn more about it, check this out.
Now, some stuff I found from around the web…

If you haven’t heard, Google has been messing with people. More changes to search which are making waves.

Pat Flynn puts it into perspective and explains why this is actually a good thing.
