Don't Quit Yet... It Gets Easier!

Written by John Colanzi

I remember when I first came online. It was such a different world. The big breakthrough when I was in college, were those key punch machines.

Man, this was a whole new world, I was overwhelmed by how much I didn't know. It seemed I would never getrepparttar hang of it.

Luckily I had an offline business to keep me going. You wouldn't believe how many times I felt like throwing inrepparttar 123990 towel.

This was a world for techies, not for a dinosaur like me. HTML and allrepparttar 123991 other terms were a foreign language. The more I studied,repparttar 123992 dumber I felt.

Have you felt like that?

Do you still feel like that?

Well you're not alone. Building an online business is like anything else. It gets easier with practice.

When you first start onrepparttar 123993 ride uprepparttar 123994 hill to financial freedom,repparttar 123995 only thing you see isrepparttar 123996 steep climb ahead.

This is whererepparttar 123997 average person throws up their hands and quits. What a shame.

If you just put in some time and effort your view would change.

Inrepparttar 123998 beginning you're like a little child walking throughrepparttar 123999 woods. Asrepparttar 124000 walk continuesrepparttar 124001 child has trouble keeping up with his father.

Innovating Your Way to Success

Written by Julie Jordan Scott

The calendar is chock full of fun facts like this: "The first successful parachute jump from a MOVING airplane was made by Captain Berry at St. Louis, Missouri in 1912." Naturally my mind immediately jumped in wonder torepparttar first successful parachute jump from a NON MOVING airplane. Has there ever been one?

I also learned aboutrepparttar 123989 skills of a funambulist. What is a funambulist? A tightrope walker! Better issue a warning to my next challenger at Trivial Pursuit!

Finally, I discovered Andrew Jackson wasrepparttar 123990 first US President to ride on a tran.

>From there my brain immediately jumped from President on a train to Trains + President = Whistle Stop Tour.

With some supportive help from my favored Search Engine, Google, I quickly learned some fascinating details even above and beyond Whistle Stop Tours. I studied my way intorepparttar 123991 delightful path of innovation.

For example, did you know thatrepparttar 123992 first president ofrepparttar 123993 United States, George Washington, took an earlier version of a Whistle Stop Tour? He took a "Ship Tour" ofrepparttar 123994 Eastern Sea Board while he was in office. Reportedlyrepparttar 123995 citizens of New Hampshire had an especially intense celebration for Washington. They reverently compared their President to royalty or deity.

Impressingrepparttar 123996 American citizenry using common modes of transportation is as old asrepparttar 123997 USA. The main difference is how innovatively individuals have used this tool. From here, my brain leap frogged to asking this question: How could anyone leverage something ordinary to create something truly extraordinary?

While Presidents Taft, Wilson, and both Roosevelts used Train Transportation as a campaign method, it was Harry Truman who maderepparttar 123998 Whistle Stop Tour into a franchise.

He took something that his predecessors had tried and used successfully and exponentially improvedrepparttar 123999 method right back into re-election! As history has shown us, it was TRUMAN who defeated DEWEY. Notrepparttar 124000 other way around.

Innovators create success.

How do they do it?

1. They listen torepparttar 124001 passion within their hearts and subsequently take action towards their vision. They are not passively waiting for someone else to do something, they are creating life. They are collaborating with "the flow".

2. They followrepparttar 124002 sometimes unusual path ofrepparttar 124003 strongest computer at their disposal every moment of every day. Their Brain! Did I know that reading some trivia would invite me to write about innovation? Nope! Did I benefit from going with it? Yes! Did You?
