Throwing Pebbles & Conquering Mountains

I just wanted to post real quick to wish you guys a happy new year & a happy new decade!

Many times, we get so caught up in routine and habit, we end losing steam on accomplishing the major goals we set out for ourselves.

Wherever the past 10 years have taken you, you now have the next 10 to make it count.

“It isn’t the mountains ahead, to climb, that wear you out – it’s the pebble in your shoe.” – Muhammad Ali

In this next year, and in this next decade, I invite you to join me in a challenge to remove all the pebbles from your life, and conquer that mountain ahead.

Meet you at the top!

Why I Decided To Close My Business

soaring_eagle_350

The past few weeks have been intense – to say the least.

Amongst a heavier-than-usual workload, slicing my thumb like it’s deli meat, and several personal engagements; I also came to a serious decision and milestone in my career. After 4 years of pouring my blood, sweat and tears into my own business, I’ve decided to close shop.

It was not an easy decision, by any means, however it was a decision that was desperately needed.

Blog Goals, Sideblogs & Microblogging

As you are well aware, makingthemogul.com focuses on the business side of the music business; getting into the business, issues surrounding it, lessons learned, etc – and it’s offered through my personal perspective as I continue in my journey.

Thing is, I don’t update as much as I should.

I acknowledge that.

I’ve actually been speaking to a few fellow bloggers recently about that and have requested their own personal tips and suggestions on updating regularly. It’s not easy when you have a 24/7 work schedule. A REAL 24/7 work schedule, not a pretend schedule that’s primarily spent doing nothing (read: sh*t talkers).

Anyhow, I have a new goal I want to share with you: next week (October 13th -17th), I am committed to posting at least one new post per day. And yes, I said “at least”, so I may post more than once a day, but I might not. One post per day seems like a good goal for me. (I’m going to attempt to post often this week as well)

This might not seem like a big deal to some, but remember that this isn’t a news or gossip blog, so I don’t have to update daily. (I’m going to get a few phone calls and messages about that last comment, guaranteed)

I admit, I take advantage of that leniency though. I figure I’ll treat this like an exercise or diet plan -let others know about my plan and then stick to it so that I don’t break my word.

So there; I told you.

On that note, there’s certain things that I feel like sharing online, but they don’t really fit with the theme of MakingTheMogul. For that reason, I also have a “sidebar” blog, called moe’s art, where I just post up random things I find funny or post-worthy.

And as always, you can find me on Twitter.
