If you want your message to reach the maximum number of people, a blog is hands down the best means I know. But who’s got time?
It doesn’t matter if I’m speaking with someone just starting to blog or someone who’s been building their platform for a few years, the No. 1 struggle people face is finding enough time in the day to do it. Maybe you can identify.
This is a guest post by Jonathan Milligan. He is a former executive recruiter turned professional blogger. He also enjoys coaching others on how to get more done and build better blogs. You can find and follow him on his personal blog or on his Blogging Your Passion website.
Did you know many of your favorite Disney moments from the 1930-1970s were birthed from a mastermind group of animators? Walt Disney referred to them as “Nine Old Men.”
While still in their twenties and thirties, when Walt first coined the phrase, this mastermind group brought to the world such classics as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,Peter Pan,Cinderella,Alice in Wonderland,Sleeping Beauty, and many others.
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’d like to invite you to join me for a free, LIVE Webinar on Tuesday, April 1st at 9:00 pm Eastern Time (8:00 pm Central, 7:00 pm Mountain, 6:00 pm Pacific). This is something I usually only do for our Platform University members, but I am opening this one to the public.
Me Presenting a Live Webinar
In this webinar, I will share a “Recipe for a Killer Blog Post: 7 Steps to Creating Content That Gets Read and Shared.” My goal is to help you go further, faster and save you the years it took me to get to where I am now.
A little over a year ago, we launched Platform University. Since that time, it has been fascinating to watch how the world of platform-building has changed.
Working at the Desk in My Library
If you want the short version, it is this: platform building is getting easier every year. For the first time in history, ordinary people can build a real business or take their existing business to a new level.
Writing is lonely but fascinating work. That’s why I love talking to other writers, especially accomplished ones like my good friend, Max Lucado. I had the privilege of being his publisher for many years.
As you probably know, Max is the author of almost 100 books with more than 80 million copies in print. There are probably less than five authors in the world who are that prolific—or that successful. It’s mind-boggling.
A while back I had the opportunity to sit down with Max and talk about his writing process. In this five-minute interview, he shares:
Several months ago, I hosted a teleseminar with Jeff Goins. If you don’t know, Jeff is a full-time author, blogger, and speaker. I wanted to re-post it here as a way of introducing you to his Tribe Writers course (more about that in a minute).
We had some technical challenges in the call when we were both suddenly dropped by Skype—twice!—but we kept forging ahead. Regardless, Jeff shared some powerful content for anyone who is serious about building an online platform.
