Rank #2: 5 Ways to Build a Powerful Email Newsletter List
It’s one thing to understand the importance of email marketing and quite another to actually build an email list that allows you to reach a large audience.
One of the best things I ever did as a blogger was to build my own email list.
It gave me the power to no longer beg for attention, but be able to communicate regularly with an audience of people who wanted to hear what I had to say.

Rank #6: 219: Your Best Creative Tool (Is You) with Paul Jarvis
As you may know, I’ve been traveling quite a bit this year.
It’s been fun to meet many of you at the various events I’ve spoken at or attended.

Rank #7: Why You Failed at That Last Goal You Set
You didn’t fail.
The goal was to learn something, so if you learned, you succeeded. It’s only when the unexpected happens and we don’t learn from it that we really fail.
The reason why you may not have achieved what you set out to achieve was that you were measuring (and therefore expecting) the wrong thing.

Because the cost of not having it is greater than the cost of acquiring it.
This is true for almost everything but especially for sales and marketing.
If you want to thrive as a creative professional, you need to understand what it takes for someone to buy from you.
Otherwise, you just might starve.
