Guest Lecture at CTC on Managing Your Career Online

ctc logoI was privileged enough to be asked to hold a guest lecture at Career Technical College in Monroe, LA on August 21, 2013.

Before I spoke, I was told to come up with basically whatever topic I wanted, but I was encouraged to speak about social media. The individual who got me the gig had attended a few of my public speaking gigs around social media and the web.

At first I wasn’t too sure about speaking just on social media to a career class. There was no need to teach these students how to actually function the tools. However, I decided to make the lecture match the class and my knowledge and made it about “Managing Your Career Online.” +Continue Reading

Starting My Blog Series on How I Get My Wants

If i’m going to write my book about getting my wants by utilizing my blog, I want to start off by taking the approach as if I was actually writing a book. The only difference is that my entire process is going to be public instead of hidden and private only on my computer.

So the first question… How the hell do I even go about writing this kind of book?

Start Rambling

I have read a blog post online by the title of “How to Start Writing a Book“. I guess that is a decent place to start. The reason I even mention it is because I read this, “When I sit down with a blank page I have no preconceptions. I just start writing and plan to figure it all out later once there are a few pages of rambles and rants to work from.”  That seems like a perfect place to start for me. I don’t really know where I want to go with this, so I need to simply start rambling about how I get the things I want.

I was thinking of at LEAST getting some topics listed as a place to start rambling about. The things I want in life mostly have to do with education, relationships, health, financial, and career. However, the most important thing is simply being organized. I don’t think you can get everything you want in life if you don’t plan and work on obtaining it. If this is the case, people really need to understand and have a system that allows them to keep themselves accountable.

These are going to be my starting points. I know for sure that I have a few things I want to say about each of these topics.

300 Calorie Meals Project

I got in contact with an individual who runs a publication in Louisiana called “The Minute Magazine”. The reason I did this was because I wanted to make a connection for MyWants, but I also wanted to possibly write a column for them and get some recognition among their readers. So, I came up with the idea of writing about how people can lose weight using YouTube. Cool article idea, right? haha

As I get into the article I came to a place where I needed to refer my readers in finding 300 calorie meals to eat. However, I ran into a problem! There was a bunch of poor videos and now reliable source for these types of videos. Being the entrepreneur that I am, my wheels started spinning!

I came up with the idea to start a video channel that was all about 300 calorie meals. Come to find out, 300CalorieMeals.com was also for sale. I contacted the owner and found out they were selling it for only $10. Once I found that out, it was on. I purchased the domain name, setup a YouTube account, and secured profiles on Facebook and Twitter. By that weekend, I had the website setup and ready to go. +Continue Reading

About Me and My Wants

As a college student I came up with the idea of a website and business that I wanted to create. Not knowing what to do or who to turn to for this very specific type of project, I ventured out on my own.

Long story short, I ended up getting where I wanted to be, but I took the long path with too many bumps in the road. If only I had someone to guide me along a path that had already been taken while helping me connect to every service provider I needed, PERSONALLY.

Over the years I have come to find out that people need help. Not only do people need help finding the right people and resources to get things done, but I also found out that people need motivation and coaching to help them accomplish big dreams and obtain their wants in life.

Yes, their “wants”! I understand that people “need” things, but my focus and the focus of my company is on those who want to push the envelope. I like to meet and work with people who strive further than their basic needs in their personal life or the life of their business. +Continue Reading

MyWants Facebook App Launch

We have been working on the MyWants app for just about a year now. What was supposed to be a 1 month project turned into a 1 year project. LONG story…

BUT anyway, the application is in BETA and ready for launch.

The MyWants app simply allows Facebook users to create a list of their wants and share them with friends. You can also use the app to help you Get your wants with the “Get This”

For a general overview, check out the MyWants App Overview video I made.

But most of all, I would like to hear feedback from those of you who check it out. What do you think of the overall idea? Is this something you think you will utilize?
