Jonathan's Blogging Journey

I first heard of blogging in the Summer of 2008. I was really fascinated by the idea and concept. It was about the same time that I began a personal mission to discover my true purpose in life. I had spent the previous five years building a start-up executive search firm with a few close friends. Although I was enjoying the journey, I really wanted to find my "fit" in the world...

Earn a Living by Solving These 6 Problems

Which of These 6 Problems Does Your Blog Solve?.

I’d easily win the award for the strangest little league photo as a kid. When I was in first grade, I came down with the chickenpox. Yes, the kind that is super contagious. Yet, even though I was contagious for some strange reason my parents still drove me to participate in my Little League team […]

The Fastest Way to Grow Your Network as a Blogger

Become the biggest giver in every relationship.

Most people hate the word networking. It just doesn’t feel right to them. It feels like a bunch of people trying to push their own agendas in order to get ahead in the world. Put in the mix important influencers and suddenly it feels more like junior high as you strategize what it’s going to […]

The Big Audience Myth

Why a Smaller Engaged Audience Beats a Large Audience Every Time.

There’s a myth that needs to be crushed. Your belief in this myth is holding you back from building a successful online business. What is this myth? It’s the false belief that we need a large audience to be successful. A smaller, engaged audience beats a large audience every time. “A smaller, engaged audience beats a […]

The ONE Thing Holding You Back from Being a Successful Writer or Blogger

Why What You Do Flows Out of Who You Are.

“Writing is just not your thing. Don’t become a writer.” I heard those words my Freshman year of college from the English Professor. Creative Writing 101 was one of the few college classes I enjoyed. Yet, I couldn’t seem to score higher than a “C” on most of my stories. I set my dream of writing on […]

I have a question.  I currently blog and I usually blog about financial or career issues. I was wondering should I start another blog for career and keep them separate?  Thanks

Hello everyone!  Excited to join the group, look forward to getting to know you all.  The blog for my business is at www.profitdriversconsulting.com/blog.  Just put up a new Year in Review post. Hopefully it can help inspire anyone going through a difficult time.

I'm looking forward to viewing all the videos in BYP University!

Have a Happy New Year's,

I looked at Zoho. Either I'm not seeing what I'm looking for, or this just isn't it.

Comment by Brad Kinder on December 23, 2011 at 5:35pm

I would recommend Zoho also.  I have used it and it meets my needs.  Like Jim mentioned, it is free!

I would give it a look!

Have you looked into Zoho.com or other CRM software. I haven't used Zoho much but it might help. Plus, it's free!
Comment by Jim Cordero on December 23, 2011 at 12:32pm

Hello. Does anyone here have experience with a contacts database program that you'd recommend? I'm building a list of info in excel, and now in google docs. primarily church leadership contacts, organizations, schools, and a list of individuals who volunteer at events / street team members. I want the ability to create fields and lay it out the way I want it. I'm mostly contacting people with email, and facebook, but will also mail materials to them, call them, and sometimes text. I want to be able to sort the info, and easily send email from it.

Ultimately I want to be able to simply enter / edit contact info, sort and manage it, and communicate with people on specific lists.

I'm not a master of excel, I've just started using google docs and have questions about it. So I thought before I spend too much time on this trail I'd ask and see if there's a better way of doing this.

Comment by Connie Foster on December 21, 2011 at 4:59pm
Thanks Rob. I'm just glad I had the whole day to sort through the process. It probably took me longer than most since I'm not very tech savvy. Let me know when you mark the task off your list so I can join the celebration.
Comment by Robert "Rob" E. Copeland III on December 21, 2011 at 3:55pm

Connie - A big congratulations!!  I am inspired by your commitment, good work, positive outcome, and probably a lot of perseverance. In all honesty starting a blog popped up on my Toodledo task list on 6/3/11.  It's time to get it done!!

Comment by Connie Foster on December 21, 2011 at 3:03pm

Jonathan and Bob,

Thanks so much for providing the Blogging Your Passion 101 video series. After much procrastination, I finally went threw the entire process today and, thanks to you guys, built my blog!!! I'm tired, I'm starving, my husband is starving, and there's no reason to get out of my PJs at this point since it'll be time to go to bed again soon. I would love the feedback from anyone out there with a moment to spare.


Thanks again, guys. Let me know when the next video series is ready.

Hi to all,


Thanks so much for your previous comments, and for everyone who looked at my site. I’m slowly working on the revisions, and will let you all know when they are complete. I’m also posting this same post in a few different places on 48 Days, so you might see it again! I am still working at my JOB full time, so my time resources are somewhat limited, apologies as to not responding or being involved as much as I really need to be. I am working on two websites for coaching (and yes Ken, speaking)! The first is The Exceptional American, which is focused on Life Coaching, and the second is The Leader Forge, which will obviously be focused on Leadership. My passion is leadership, though I see life coaching as a solid secondary focus, as not everyone can be nor wants to be a leader specifically, but everyone can and should be working on improving their life situation. I have been slow working on things, but am now laser beam focused on my sites, my speech, and my training formats, as I am planning my transition to full time coaching and speaking by mid-January. So, any comments, critiques, encouragement and questions are and will be appreciated. I have gained much from this community and really appreciate what you all are doing on here. Thanks much!
