Wow! HUGE response to last week’s video kicking off a series about success habits of top mediapreneurs. More specifically, What are the most successful mediapreneurs (coaches, experts, personal brands, speakers, content creators, etc.) doing that the ones stuck in the mud spinning tires aren’t?

Back it with another juicy success habit today (and I can tell you after hundreds of interviews, thousands of customers, clients, etc.) This is a BIG ONE… Hint: it has to do with “technology” but no pocket protector is required. πŸ˜‰

Check it out below (and let me know in the comments section what you think).

I use RISE partner LeadPlayer for DSG TV, which helps me build my list with video. Check ’em out here.

  • So true David. People use technology as an excuse to why they can’t get started. Don’t try to master it all, outsource! Ok time for some coffee lol.

  • Freakin’ loved this, David! Absolutely SPOT ON. I don’t know how many websites I’ve designed now for businesses that haven’t launched yet because of the client’s refusal to learn how to use the easiest content management system around, WordPress. It’s such a waste of time, money and resources to hire a designer + developer only to sit on your sparkly new website and do nothing with it! #designrant

    • Well said, N…well said πŸ™‚ I had no clue how to do anything when I got my first website, but asking questions, learning how to do it, etc. super critical

  • Ryan Arnold

    Right on David. There are no excuses between digging in and DIY to inexpensive outsourcers like Fiverr and WPFixit, etc. You just have to suck it up and do it as overwhelming as it can be. FB groups can be a good place to get help from your peers as well.

    Speaking of no excuses good to see Natalie on here today because I owe her some pics for my site! Guess better go do that right now.

  • Totally agree, David! I have learned more this last year than I EVER thought I would be capable of learning tech wise!

  • Joseph Michael

    High five David! If you want something bad enough you will find a way – if you don’t you will find an excuse. None of us know it all. Those who succeed ask the most questions. And as Marie Forleo would say “Everything is Figureoutable”

  • Judith

    Yep, I’m definitely in the trenches, knee and elbow deep and am learning sooooo much! A timely reminder too. I did think (at several times) your iced coffee was going to splat everywhere!

  • Susanne Hansen

    Well, that was a pretty solid kick in the rear. Technology will not be boss of me!

  • Hi David,
    I totally agree. The only thing I would caution is that we do need to get absolutely clear on what we want to do and what we need to outsource. I know it can be a mud sticking problem also when we decide we’re going to do it ALL ourselves because we think we need to learn it all. That has bogged me down at various times because I’m a curious guy who loves figuring stuff out.

  • I prefer the hard-edge David.

  • AndreaShillington

    Agreed. I let technology be an excuse too. When I looked deeper at what was holding me back I discovered that it actually had nothing to do with technology. In fact it was MY mindset! I was telling myself this nasty little sentence “I’m not enough”…. Awareness is half the battle! Great post David thanks for showing up in the world as your bad-ass-self!
