I think it is important to share this with you today, especially all of you wannabee bloggers and internet superstars who think the road to success is paved with expensive software and e-books!
A tip'o'me hat to Julia Smith (Idealist Blog) for sharing these very important things everyone should be doing/aware of. These tidbits are taken from a larger article diretced at a totally different audience :::
"Use free stuff; there is so much of it now. Blogs, Google Apps, Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, Salesforce licenses, and much much more. We run our whole organization on Google Apps, for example, which means that all our email and office software is free, and there is no reason why you should pay for it, either."
"Build your network. And I don’t mean by “networking,” going to conferences, and exchanging business cards or Facebook connections. What I really mean is to try, wherever possible, to treat people the way you like to be treated. If you do this, over time you’ll have a real network of people who will be there when you need them most."
and one more...
"...what’s the worst thing that could happen if you fail? Think big, and go for it! Some days will be challenging and frustrating, but if you are doing what you want, they will never be boring."
