The other day a gentleman (not sure why I just typed “gentleman”, but hey it must be a classy day over here at The Rise To The Top) told me about his great idea for his mediapreneur business.

He had the platform figured out (he wanted to create a web show). He had his audience figured out. He even knew what product/program he wanted to introduce first. So I asked him, “What’s stopping you?”

“Well, you got started 5 years ago. It’s 2013. I think it is too late for me.”

Let me tell you right now – it is NOT TOO LATE for anyone to get started or take their mediapreneur biz to the next level. Period. Exclamation point. We are still at the EARLY stages of building online audiences/fan bases, platforms, products/programs. No, we won’t be at the early stage forever, but there is no better time than now to get started. The Internet makes room for passionate people.

To emphasize this point, I hunted down Vasavi Kumar. Vasavi is an absolute rising rock star and her biz was only started about a year ago. So, I tracked her down to have her share with us exactly what she has done over the past year to put herself on the map and freakin’ dominate (including putting together this awesome retreat in Malibu). If she can do it, so can you.

Watch/Listen below and hop into the comments section. It’s never too late to get started or take your game to the next level.


I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ’em out.

  1. I agree that the Internet ship hasn’t sailed. The seas are more crowded than ever though. This just makes the need to embrace the fundamentals of personal development, marketing and business that much more important. It’s about a commitment to mastery (on your own terms and time-table) and helping others. Vasavi has what I would call a magnificent obsession with this. The entire interview is an illustration of the power of this mindset and drive.

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

      Absolutely stephen! So well said and I completely agree.

  2. Jason Gracia says:

    Awesome interview, David! Thank you so much for sharing.

  3. Thanks for this! Love the realness.

    I got totally confused about building an “online business” until I realized that I just needed to run a business.

    The 1-1 coaching is absolutely critical. I’ve been working with clients and digging in. It’s been AWESOME. Networking and working with real people is a great credibility and expertise boost. I realized that it feels damn good to help people hands on because the live real-time responses are gold.

    Still not focusing on creating a course. Just creating great shows, engaging with my audience and hustlin’ to market my stuff.

    1. David Siteman Garland says:

      Awesome keep it going. The folks that are successful at this are all about consistency and hustle

  4. Went to Vasavi’s website, she is so gorgeous and vibrant.
    Love what Vasavi said: “If you are not exectuting in your business you are not really an entrepreneur”.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it!!!

  5. Tynisha says:

    Hi David, Thank you so much for this interview. It’s exactly what I’ve need to keep me inspired and going as I launch my new web show this summer.
