What does it take to get free?

We want freedom in our work for a primary reason...we want freedom in our lives. Flexibility, control, meaning and more. But free agency, aka self-employment, doesn't start with business know how. It starts with and understanding and mindset:

  1. WHO...are you to do something different than the norm?
  2. WHY...do you want to do this? Specifically and defined?
  3. WHAT...is an idea that truly fits you, and then the marketplace?
  4. HOW...do you take that idea and make it stand out in the overcrowded marketplace?

This is what we talk about here. The goal is to birth free agents. Let's do this.

I also have the honor of claiming...I started this 48Days.Net community along with Jon Dale. And yes...Dan Miller is my Dad. Great to be here with you.

Hi Everyone,

A Music Producer friend of mine, said he's motto is: The 3Ps, Preparation, Positioning and Payment.  I like it.

Thanks to everyone who participated in Phase One. I appreciate your time and effort.  I will let you know when Phase Two will begin. In the meanwhile, the Homeschool Adventure Show now has its own website, check it out:

Hi Everyone:

I like to thank those who participated yesterday in downloading my new Amazon Kindle book:Homeschool Adventure Show: Interview Highlights – First Grade Book I. I have one review in place (thanks to Amy). I received messages from others saying they downloaded the book and will read and review when they get a chance. The free day is now over. If anyone would still like to help me with a review-here is the deal. For Memorial Day only, in honor of the U.S. Veterans who have given their lives in war my book will be .99.


Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Everyone:

I am in Phase One of marketing my new book on Amazon Kindle: Homeschool Adventure Show: Interview Highlights-First Grade Book I. I am looking for a few Reviewers to help me reach my goal of 20. Today only, it is free on Amazon until 8pm.  This is not the big launch day. It is for my online friends to see the book first and leave a review on what they liked about the book. You can message me here if you noticed anything I need to correct i.e. grammar spelling, blank pages, confusing areas etc....  This will give me time to make the changes before the big launch day. Thanks in advance for helping.

Hi Everyone:

I am presenting a different promo video for my new book: Homeschool Adventure Show: Interview Highlights - First Grade Book I.  I have used in the past; video scribe, animoto, and powtoons.  This one (also a Fiverr gig) was done as a movie trailer.  Let me know what you think???

I'm so glad to be a part of this network. The more ground I take, the more I know I can do anything. I'm unsure of how I can fully connect with this online family, but as a Voice Actor with self set schedule, I don't want something as small as ignorance keep me from jumping in. I'll be stopping in more regularly! Look forward to seeing what everyone in here pushes into this year!

Hi Everyone:

I wanted to touch base and let you know about my latest project. For those of you who do not know, I have been a Homeschool Mom for the last three years.  Akili and I have also Co-hosted the “Homeschool Adventure Show” on Blog Talk Radio since lst Grade (currently 2nd Grade). Basically, I interview her to see what she can remember learning each week. We cover the various subjects such as Spelling, Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science, History and Geography.  By popular demand, I am in the process of transcribing the show notes into an Amazon Kindle book. Homeschool Adventure Show: Interview Highlights –First Grade Book I.  

I will keep you posted.

Hi Everyone:

I was asked on the Marketing and Promotion forum to explained how the animated videos were created that you see on Udemy as my promo videos. You can click on each class to see them.



Step 1:  I created a free account with powtoons.   http://www.powtoon.com/

Step 2:  I browsed their templates and found one I liked.

Step 3:  I replaced their "script" with mine. I kept their music.

Step 4:  I saved it and it will generate a link. You cannot download the mp4 with the free version.

Step 5:  I found a seller on Fiverr.com (2 different ones) but will recommend: https://www.fiverr.com/godbendz

Step 6:  I communicated with them before I ordered the gig. I sent them the link.

Step 7:  They said "no problem" we can do it. I ordered their gig.

Step 8: I now have the mp4 in which I can post it where I like-Udemy, Youtube (with added coupon slide).

Note: You have the option of not having the music or you can have them to lower the volume to very low if you plan to do voiceover (reading the script). Then you can place it in your video editing software (Movie Maker etc...) to add your voice as it is playing. 

Hope this helps.

That's what I assumed. I believe they want it to work on all platforms. Thanks for your info Tony. It was very helpful. I appreciate it.

In the mobile world, a cross-platform app would be an app that can be built for different operating systems such as Android and iOS. iOS is what runs on iPhones and iPads.
