I 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
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?
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.
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
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?
I have been wanting to create something that I call the “MyWants Network”. It has been my idea, since the beginning of MyWants, to create a network of niche websites. Finally, I have been able to take the time to layout and create the start of the MyWants Network.
Let me explain a little on how this will work.
Hub Website (MyWants.co) – Being that MyWants is made of many different websites, we needed one single website that acts as the hub to the entire network. MyWants.co is going to act as a web portal with links to others sections of MyWants.co and other “Wants” websites.
Company Website (MyWantsInc.com) – This is just what it sounds like. This is the corporate page for MyWants Inc. This website is going to be a place to read news, stories, and latest happenings with the company. It is here that you can also meet the entire team behind Mywants Inc. +Continue Reading
