2 Business Nuggets


Here’s two challenging questions:

1. Do you own your online platform?
2. Or does your online platform own you?

It is best to think about your social media platform as a savings account.

Make deposits when there’s excess time and money. Think of it as an investment into the future, not a way to benefit short-term.

It’s okay for you to hope that it grows long-term and kicks off interest in the interim so long as you don’t rely on that happening for your immediate success.


1 Quote to Consider

"Successful people make binary decisions and accept the tradeoffs. Unsuccessful people muck about in the middle, afraid to fully commit to a few things, instead opting for the perceived safety of many."

My wife's turning 40 next week. That's a line I thought that I'd never say. Still madly in love with her. That'll prob never change. So, that's cool. Oh, and leaving Nicaragua on Monday. Heading to Mexico for the next few months. We had a great time and will miss it here. Anyway, hope you're good.
