Journal 19 – I’ll Only Kiss My Sweetheart!

Listen to Audio – After a year of “playing the field,” I’ve decided to break up with all but one of my “girlfriends” and fix my eyes on that special one. She’s really amazing, but I’m a little scared. You see, a year ago, I set out to start three businesses. It was like dating three great women. It sounded good at first, but eventually I realized it couldn’t last. Sharing my time wasn’t fair to them or me, for that matter. They were all jealous of each other and I found it impossible to make them feel special. It’s now time to…continue

Journal 18 – Walking a Mile in the Snow: The Cold Hard Facts of Entrepreneuralism

Listen to Audio – My validation scheme was to offer three free videos to entice potential customers to leave their email address – if I got sufficient interest, I’d move forward. However, my efforts were in vain, because I didn’t get many interested clicks and even fewer people left their email address. This validation step was a great disappointment and it made me second guess my entrepreneurial expectations; and because of this, I’ve made a major decision. Disbelief I really don’t know how a real estate training program could not be successful. The potential market includes the 10 percent of Americans who…continue

Journal 17 – Validation: 3 Feet From Gold

Listen to Audio –   The easy part of being an entrepreneur is dreaming. A close second is developing the mechanics behind the dream – the web sites, the podcasts, buying cameras and reading books or watching how-to videos. But, once you kick-off the business, the dreams come into stark contrast with the realities of the marketplace. That’s where I am right now. Project 4’s validation hasn’t won out. In fact, from what I can tell, there’s not a demand for a for-sale-by-owner online training course. Ever heard of the ol’ saying about the Alaskan or California gold rushes?  It’s said…continue

Journal 16 – A Validation Nightmare

Listen to Audio –   I can’t believe it took so long!  Looking back at my Journal entries, I see that I committed to validating my next business idea in July (Journal 14).  It took about three times as long as I thought it would take and every conceivable nightmare jumped out like a bad Halloween movie.   Like most things, I opted for the most complicated way again! Is it Murphy’s Law kicking in or is it a new phenomenon, “Nick’s Law”? I’m starting to wonder! Here was my great idea. I would validate my training course with a fantastic…continue

What’s the Secret to Startup Business Success?

Listen to Audio –   What’s the secret to start-up business success?  This question has been poised by many throughout the millenniums. It’s the manta, the food we’ve all so wanted but could not taste. Well, just like Ponce de León’s search for the Fountain of Youth, I’ve searched for the equation to start-up success. Like me, thousands have wondered if such an equation exist.  It’s like trying to find a Cookoo Bird in the Rocky Mountains, it’s possible – anything is possible – but unlikely.   Well, today I’m happy to disclose that I’ve found it.  It’s no longer hidden or…continue
