How To Start A Mailing List With Mailchimp

Again, back to my Seth Godin obsession.  Seth starts his 3 Day Startup event talking about what you will encounter as an entrepreneur but at the very end he focuses in on a really important idea I want to reiterate: Building an online presence and a following is really important.

Why is that?

Say for whatever reason you created a mailing list.  Now instead of having 2-3 friends’ opinions, you get 10,000.  Sure, you can have facebook, but really… not everyone will go on facebook all the time.  However, everyone will check their emails at least 5-10 times a day.  GAURANTEED.  And all it really takes is one click for them to go from their inbox to your message.  Now you are in the realm of the “heard”.  All you need to do is build your following.

Seth also highlights the importance of things being share-able but first only to a select niche.  Because all you really need is a few people to like what you have to hear but more importantly feel compelled to share what you have to say.  That small tiny group can then expand because they will self propagate your message {And really, it doesn’t matter what your message may be… as long as you make it feel share-able.)

Therefore I feel like I should tell you guys about Mailchimp.com. (more…)


The Real Hours of a Non-Disruptive Startup

Some of my friends have asked me what exactly is it that I do… dance around in my warehouse all day?  (I secretly grow a warehouse filled with weed, after all, they don’t call this the “high” desert for ain’t no good reason).

GOT YOUR ATTENTION NOW? ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?

Don’t be silly.

There are two types of start ups and two types of entrepreneurs (or so I’ve been schooled).  Of course there might be more but that isn’t relevant to this post.

How to Do Online Dating

Let’s face it.  Everyone needs this.  RADIO needs this.  Because I can rap about everything except for Jesus! (Woa, strange tangent there…)

And I am suuuuuuuuch a pro by now that I can clearly give advice on this matter.

I have been through horrible, life-changing, soul crushing disappointments and have lived to tell the tale.  No, for some reason life didn’t hand me the card of “meet the love of your life in high school and stay with him until you are 80” type of ordeal.  Life handed me a wild card.  So wild that by now I won’t be surprised by almost anything.  But hey – I emerged from it pretty damn deliriously happy so I just want to put in my 2 cents.

A close friend of mine recently started venturing into the world of online dating and she was detailing me her trials and tribulations because I have “been there” and “done that” and “is still doing that” –  I just feel compelled to write this blog post.   And I have many friends talk to me about their online dating experience as if they are noobs.  (Does this mean I am “seasoned”?  Sounds nasty coming from a female – doesn’t it?  Sounds like 3 weeks old cabbage sitting in the back of your fridge)  I just don’t want you to get “pawned” when entering the world of online dating.

Below I will write two guides.  A female guide as well as a male guide. (more…)


Have you ever thought to yourself while you are reading an email… “I would really like this EMAIL to be magically UNREAD at some point later on in my life and re-sent back to me just so I can read it again”?

This could be anything from a reminder to yourself to buy that extra apple at the grocery store, a notice of your eviction date from your tech savvy landlord, a letter from the Nigerian prince you built a deep connection via online communication and wanted to follow up on, a bill reminder from Mint.com, to an email newsletter from me with great important tips you’d like to revisit…….. It could be anything in the world.

But the reality of life dawns on you: once something is “marked as read”, you will never revisit it.  It will be lost the oblivion of your inbox and you are absolutely helpless to remind yourself unless you take the desperate measures of physical sticky notes or alarm clock notices.

WELL SAY NO MORE.

You now have Boomerang.  Boomerang is ingenious because it can tie itself to a couple of the most wildly used mail applications – gmail and outlook.  Surprisingly the version for gmail is a separate company than the outlook one.

The outlook one has a $29.95 one time fee while the gmail boomerang has different tiers ranging from free to $14.99/month.

Sometimes…. I want some variety (pandora, spotify, asian, cracker, chocolate, panini… j/k!).  But sometimes I just want the same damn thing on repeat like a billion times throughout the day.

That is where this website will come into use.  I know, I know, you can also use grooveshark but there is a shortcoming to grooveshark ==> you can’t loop VIDEOS!

This is narrow mindedly, specifically, for Youtube.

Another praise for human-sent technology… goes to CAMSTUDIO.  Beating out its contestants = a million other random thoughts floating about in my brain.  I know, you are probably thinking… a MILLION?  I usually can only count five thoughts and then everything is but a blur afterwards.  Oh, the nightly alcohol does that to you, doesn’t it?  [I told you not to keep on drinking alone – it isn’t the cure all to your childhood issues!]

Some of you might be familiar with Camstudio already since its inception, but for those of you who are not familiar with Camstudio, I just want to harp on it for juuuuuuust a little bit.

Also, after this I talk about strange happenings over at my warehouse.
