Hi everyone! Well here’s my vlog and some text is below:
Dang it! The red air soft hit is still visible on my forehead and here I thought I had covered it up well. LOL! Better not be permanent. Looks like I have a gigantic zit on my forehead. My son keeps trying to say, “I can’t see it anymore” but I know better.
So I read a neat article on FoxNews.com that I’m going to summarize here in today’s vlog. I am a reality TV addict – but you don’t have to be to appreciate the lesson. The article was about 3 reality TV shows that can teach entrepreneurs a thing or two.
The first one was about Project Runway. I used to watch this show but got bored of it. In Project Runway the host (Tim Gunn) always tells the contestants “Make it work!” He doesn’t mean take shortcuts. He means dig deep, find your vision and share it. The contestants are usually on a very small or nonexistent budget, have virtually no time to do their task, and no help.
Just like entrepreneurs, right? The article said that if you let that stop you, then you’re not cut out for this. So maybe you can tackle each day as if you were on a reality TV show fighting for the win.
So You Think You Can Dance was the next one – I don’t watch it – but what I liked about the article is that it said it’s not about the BEST – it’s about the FAVORITE. That’s true in the marketing world, too. You don’t have to be the very best. You have to be likable and fun and heartfelt. This is why I try to force you guys into putting some personality into your blog posts, not stale content.
The Voice was the third show. I don’t watch that, either. But what apparently happens is they judge the contestants blindly initially and then later judge them based on how much better they became after working with a mentor. As entrepreneurs, we always have to be bettering ourselves. That doesn’t mean you have to be learning NEW things, but you need to be looking to improve your skills.
I never review products just for money purposes. If that was the case, I’d just pick an item with the biggest dollar amount. I pick things that I personally want to learn – and that I feel others need to learn.
Anyway, here is the article on Fox News.
Hope y’all have a great week coming up!
