Have you ever opened your eyes in the morning and realized you want more? (I’m not talking about wanting a Dr. Pepper or a ham and cheese omelet for breakfast here.) I do. I woke up this morning with a burning desire for getting more out of life. I want more from my business, more from my education, more from my relationships, and more from my spiritual life. I am no longer content with the ho-hum existence I’ve been living. I WANT MORE.

Now, I have no desire to acquire hordes of possessions, climb to the top of some corporate ladder, or become a rock star at 35. I think this is more of a spiritual nudging that I’m not living up to my full potential. I am capable of more; I was created for better things. YOU were created for better things, too.

So, where is all this borderline motivational drivel leading to, you ask? In my quest to plan out a course for achieving more, I found a wonderful little nugget of truth and wisdom, tucked away in a far corner of the Internet, and I’d like to share it with you.

You see, I have a small problem; I am not an entrepreneur by nature. Confidence and drive and persuasion do not come naturally to me. But I am an innovative thinker.

I’m looking for a new road map today. I’m planning a route for better personal and professional relationships, a deeper spiritual life, a robust education, and a solid, innovative, fulfilling online business. I’m doing a life make-over, an early mid-life crisis, reinventing the wheel- whatever it takes, and I found an excellent starting line today thanks to Sitepoint.com and WhitneyHess.com.

If you are looking for a starting point for your online business, or even if your focus has gotten a little hazy, this presentation titled Evangelizing Yourself will help set you back on track. Watch it more than once and take notes, because Ms. Whitney is about to provide your road map for success with a side serving of motivation and confidence.

  1. Hi Jamie. Yes I have woke with these thoughts. Sounds to me like you have graduated from one phase with flying colours and it’s time to move on to the next. You’ve outgrown “the box” 🙂 Enjoy the journey.

  3. Hi Davina,

    I’ve been here before, but I usually get cold feet and go for small, incremental changes. I think it’s finally time for an overhaul. 🙂 Time to pitch self-doubt and worry out the window.

    Thanks for support, it means a lot.

  5. Hi Whitney,

    Your presentation was truly brilliant, one of the best I’ve seen (and I see a lot of PPT presentations). I’ll be over to peruse your website soon. 😉 Thanks for sharing your knowledge with the rest of us to help even us little guys achieve rock star status.

Jamie, I also want you to know that I happen to think you exude greatness already, in so many ways! So, you’re well on your way in the direction you want to be going. You’re awesome!!

  9. Morning, Jamie! I’ve saved the presentation for later. I’ll watch it when I get home from taking the children to school. I just wanted to say that being an entrepreneur is fun, exciting, and a little bit scary, but ALWAYS worth it. Best of luck and let me know if you need anything at all. You are a smart lady who will do very well I’ve no doubt. Entrepreneurship IS innovative thinking.

  13. Hey Lance,

    We could all network a little better, I think you do a great job keeping up with a busy website and with the hundreds of tweets and emails we send you. Networking takes time and patience, which are scarcities in the digital age of instant results.

    And we’re all great in Christ. (But thanks for the compliment.) 😀

  15. Hey Sean,

    My drivel pales in comparison to Whitney’s presentation. It’s well worth the time.

    It is a bit scary at times, isn’t it? But the friendships and experiences make it well worth every second.

  17. Hi Vikum,

    LOL, consider it a free education from the real world.:) And I’m 34 going on 20, but I have an advanced vocabulary for a teenager. 😉 Maybe we should change Blue Duck’s tagline…Old Foggie Wisdom with a Dash of Spunk. Ok, that’s awful, maybe we’ll stick with what we’ve got. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
