My dream is to be an entrepreneur and I have always been inspired by Tynan.
My question to Tynan: What right now sucks up most of your time that can be delegated to someone else?
I'm realizing more and more that I may need to work with entrepreneurs first instead of trying to do everything by myself in my apartment. I'd be willing to help out in any way to get exposure to your awesomeness :)
Always worth a shot Eddy ;). My only problem is I don't have any concrete skills to help people.
I've tried contacting 9 successful people that I admire in the past few weeks. So far I am now in contact with one via email, another one may possibly mentor me in person, and am going to meet another one for a few beers this week.
I figured if I keep contacting people eventually there will be one where I can offer them value of some sort. It takes a lot of misses but that doesn't really matter. I understand a lot of people it just won't work, they are simply busy doing the awesome stuff they are doing and I can't offer them anything that is worth their time.
This is part of an ongoing series. If you haven't read them already, read :
I wrote out this entire post before, and then the computer crashed and I lost it all, so I haven't felt like working on it. Finally, I'm biting the bullet and starting over :
I'm terrible at judging the quality of my own work.
I've almost deleted some of my best blog posts, thinking that they weren't good enough. I was ashamed to publish them, and I only did it to push myself to write better next time.
Guess what? Some of these posts, like this one that Tynan reposted to his community, turned out to be very good.
I've also noticed the same with photos I share on Instagram. Here, the quality (or the popular appeal) of a photo can roughly be judged by the number of likes and comments that a photo gets.
Over the past year I've uploaded over a hundred photos to Instagram... and I'm still struggling to see which ones will be well received. I'm almost ashamed to say this since I also give advice on how to take better photos with the iPhone.
