"Think of your words as reps, your paragraphs as sets, your pages as daily workouts."

There’s no avoiding it. You have to grind it out. The more you push, the stronger you become as a writer.Here’s Colin Nissan from The Ultimate Guide to Writing Better Than You Normally Do:"Writing is a muscle. Smaller than a hamstring and slightly bigger than a bicep, and it needs to be exercised to get stronger. Think of your words as reps, your paragraphs as sets, your pages as daily workouts."The more you push, the stronger you become as a writer —…See More

Brian Del Turco commented on Bruce Koerber's blog post How Does One Become A Non-statist?
"Agreed! As the State (Big Gov) swells in size, more and more choices are made for you. Big Gov = smaller citizen. This progressively erodes personal choice and an entrepreneurial lifestyle."

Dark Horses (Switchfoot)

Posted on March 4, 2015 at 6:23pm 0 Comments

We’re singing hey, you can’t count us out

We’ve been running up against the crowd

Yeah, we are the dark horses

We’re singing wait, it’s not over now

We’ve been down but we’ve never been out

Yeah, we are the dark horses

You're doing something uncommon. Something entrepreneurial. Maybe you're a "dark horse."

The “dark horse” is a competitor who is not known and is almost impossible to place betting odds on. You can be down, but it’s not the end. Find the way out. Run against the grain. You’ll survive the rain … the pain. Emerge from darkness.

(Complete lyrics below.)

No oxen. No shit. No revenue.

I'm betting there are those seasons you can relate to that one guy in every parade ... the one right behind the horses.

So how much life do we want anyway? It depends, in part, on how much we're willing to shovel.

Where no oxen are, the manger is clean, but much revenue comes by the strength of the ox (Proverbs 14:4).

What stinks in your life right now? This is a funny, penetrating read by Morgan Snyder of Ransomed Heart (John Eldredge).

Get a grip on your shovel. Read it here — Oxen. Shit.…

Free Yourself from the Wholesale Conformity Underway Around Us

Posted on February 5, 2015 at 1:30pm 2 Comments

The merchants of mass identity are relentless.

Life is too valuable to be mass-conformed! Free yourself from the wholesale conformity that is underway all around us.

Are you worn out from being over-stimulated and shoved in a certain direction?

Here's one powerful thing we can do to resist this ...

Read.

Good reading FREES us from mass identity and helps to develop and preserve our individuality.

Refuse to conform. In a good way, be a contrarian! (Defined: opposing or rejecting popular opinion; going against current practice.)

You Can Forget About Selling Books Like 'Mad Men'!

Posted on January 28, 2015 at 10:07am 0 Comments

AMC’s Mad Men is a fascinating look into a NYC advertising firm in the 1960’s.

That dark, brooding, conniving, out-of-control Don Draper

Don Draper and his brood convince clients to spend beaucoup bucks on campaigns to sway (manipulate?) American consumers.

Well, as you know, those heady days are in the rear view mirror …

Traditional, interruption-based marketing is fading

It’s still here of course … radio and television advertising, billboards, telemarketing, direct mail, print advertising, and on and on.

But it’s becoming less and less effective and people are learning how to block it out.

Whatever you're doing, when it comes to authentically reaching people today, inbound…

Brian,

Welcome to the Online Selling and ecommerce Group here at the 48 Days community.  I just looked at your site.  Love the niche and the site.  Both are great examples of the new online selling. It's not a picture and a price.  Instead it's about answering someone's problem, building trust and offering something of so much value that people want to purchase it from you.  Old fashion selling is dead, now it's about helping your customer purchase.  Excited to have you as part of our growing group.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for the friend invite and the great advice on my question in the "Write It Forward" group. 

Have a tremendous day!

Josh

Hey, Brian, thanks for posting on 48days.net. 
The forums are specifically a place to ask questions and get advice from folks. I'm assuming your post is looking for guidance somewhere, but since you're not asking for anything and just leaving a link to your website, we consider it spam.
To avoid being deleted in the future, please remember the forums are a place to ask honest questions and get guidance from your peers. If everyone was doing that, the forums would be an awfully boring place, filled with links to member's websites.

I'd love to see a blog post here from you, perhaps expanding on something already on your website.

Thanks,
Justin Lukasavige

Hey Brian,

You are so welcome. Enjoy the site--it's powerful!

As an FYI, one of the most powerful things about 48Days.NET is the many Groups. You can hit the ‘Groups’ tab above and search for anything you are interested in. I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:
* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Wishing you REAL Success...

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian
