The Truth About Starting Something New

November 10, 2013

My company has been online since 1995 and my “other blog” has a history.

When you go there, you see something like this…

42000subscribers

That’s a lot of people, isn’t it?

I set up this blog about four months ago. I didn’t tell anybody about it until I was 100 days in.

And today, 124 days in, this blog has…

5subscribers

That’s right! FIVE people subscribing to what I write here, including this post.

A couple of days ago, it was four, so I’ve increased my subscribers by 25%! I think that’s the way you have to look at things like this when you’re starting something new. Otherwise, you’ll go crazy.

The Truth About Starting Something New

It’s scary as hell and it doesn’t always work out as quickly as we’d like.

What makes it really scary is when you’re making the jump from something comfortable. If you’re still working a day job, perhaps you can relate. It’s hard to leave the comfort of a steady paycheck, good benefits, and a career that people respect.

Starting something new can be painful. The “unknown” of the future can make your dismal present feel like a warm cocoon.

So why do it?

Because starting something new is also very exciting! And perhaps more importantly, because you can’t not do it.

Mad as Hell (and Not Going to Take It Anymore)

When you’re not meant to work for somebody else, nothing is more painful than punching a clock. I know because I’ve been in that situation myself and, since 1995, I’ve worked to help people escape the same fate.

Having been down this road hundreds of times with creative people just like you, I can tell you one thing for certain…

If you’re ready to bring value to the world, whether it’s through a blog, a book, music, speaking, or art, there is room for you.
