People often ask, “What’s the most important thing I need to do in building my platform?” My answer? ‟Develop a robust email list.” It may just be easier than you think.
When I first started blogging, I thought traffic was everything. Same with social media—the more followers the better, right?

A friend emailed me recently asking for counsel. He’s been working really hard growing his online business—putting in lots of time and effort—and he’s discouraged.
While he had seen some really significant growth for a few months, it now feels like it’s at a standstill or even dropping off. He’s frustrated because he’s put in so much effort and it feels like he’s just not seeing the results he’d like to see.
I’m pleased to announce registration is now open for the Platform Conference, which will be held in Colorado Springs, CO, November 9-11, 2014. This is a conference you don’t want to miss!
Why? Because you have an important message you want to get out. Maybe it’s about a product, a service, or a cause. Maybe it’s just a vision for how to make some part of our world better.
In this episode I share a recent interview I did for Platform University with Dan Miller on the topic of monetizing your platform. Unlike so many others, Dan shows you exactly how to do it.
If you don’t know Dan Miller, he’s the author of the New York Times bestseller, 48 Days to the Work You Love. He is also a popular podcaster and blogger. You can find out more about him at his 48 Days Website.

Remember when you used to actually enjoy blogging, back before it became something you dreaded? Back then, sharing your message was all that mattered, and you couldn’t wait to get the word out, hoping to impact others with your story. But then something got in the way.
I know the drill. Here’s how it happened to me.
I’ve had thousands of people ask me what theme I use here on my blog. If you were one of them, I have great news.
I’m about to make the WordPress theme I use here at MichaelHyatt.com available to everyone. It’s called the Get Noticed! Theme. It’s been a long time coming, but it has been worth the wait.

People often ask me how I get so much done, and it all boils down to one word: planning.
I’ve just finished a new book, The Life Plan Manifesto, (forthcoming), blogged about taking control of your time by designing your ideal week, and more recently even created a course, 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever. Each of these focuses on the importance of planning.
