The last few weeks have been quiet here on the olde blogg. Two weeks ago we had a big video project that spanned 3 days and about 35 interviews, on top of the conference that I attended which is what I last wrote about.
Come on, you know you’ve googled that before.
I’ve got a great personal example for you from the last two weeks. Adding it all up, I’m guessing I spent 50+ hours working on rebuilding and relaunching my wife’s photography website from scratch. I mean COMPLETE redesign.
This week I was able to attend the inaugural Entrepreneur Simplified Entrecon at Utah Valley University. For a first run, it was pretty well put together, and I thoroughly enjoyed most of it.
Better than that, there were two HUGE opportunites. First, Alan (my business partner) and I got awarded scholarships to ES’s retreat next week, a $3500 value.

Life feels out of balance if we do too much consumption in relation to the amount of creating. I tend to go back and forth in …
At the beginning of this year, our company went through about a 2 month drought after a client bailed on a project that had already started. We were counting on another $30,000 coming into the company between December and February.
It still hasn’t shown up.
I’m a month in on this 100 day challenge experiment where I’m writing a blog post every day for 100 days. (Repetative much?)
One of the biggest take aways so far is just how important it is to write stuff down. In the last week alone I’ve found myself running for my notebook or reaching for my phone a number of times to get an idea down on paper.
A great script. A name actor. A name director. A realistic budget. A producer. Distribution. Someone willing to give you money. Seems pretty simple on paper, right?
