How often do you contact your list? Every now and then? Once a month?
You know my feelings on this. I mean, I post my stuff every day, even if you don’t read it every day. One of the things I’m often asked is, where do I get my ideas? How do I come up with a story or an email every day?
My answer? Simple.
I pay attention to the world around me and I carry around a notebook in which I enter all my ideas. And I read a lot.
One of the most recent books I’ve read is Born Standing Up by Steve Martin, his autobiography. It’s brilliant. I’ve learned a bunch of stuff from that book, from reading about his work ethic and what success really requires…
But the thing I’m going to share with you today is this:
“I’ve always believed that there are funny people everywhere, but they’re just not comedians. In fact, some of my best comedic inspirations were not professional entertainers.”
That’s how I get my ideas. From everywhere.
Anyway, ideas are everything. Good ones, bad ones, mediocre ones… and my book, Business For Superheroes, is stuffed to the gullet with a bunch of ideas you can use to grow your business in 2017 – without needing the huge budgets big businesses rely on.
