My costume was a hit!
“Mom! Look, it’s Olaf!”
A little boy, probably 2, wanted a hug from Olaf. It was so damn cute.
Ashton made it about 3 houses.
Ava was a trooper and made it just over an hour, although I had to carry her the last 20 houses or so.
And as I promised you yesterday, here is a picture of us going through the candy…
Enough about this 35-year old man wearing a snowman outfit out here in the desert.
I recently started an expert interview series where I interview other Dadpreneurs.
One of my favorite questions to ask is…
What is the ONE thing you would tell your 2011 self?
I ask this in FB groups to other entrepreneurs, as I think there is a lot of wisdom to be gained from just that one question.
I got started in 2010, so I been ’round the block.
If I could tell the 30 year old Adam (my age in 2011) one piece of advice, it would be this…
Do this unapologetically.
The online world has too much vanilla
It is so easy to blend into the sea of sameness online.
Most play by the “rules” and are scared to offend anyone.
Most are trying to appeal to everyone.
I did it for years, so I know what it is like. It made me miserable.
I censored myself. I tried to be politically correct as I was scared to offend anyone.
Don’t make the same mistake I did, and so many others do.
It’s YOUR business, do it how YOU want to do it.
No one else.
There is no one you need to please
I have never been able to pay my mortgage with the people I pleased.
So if you want to wear a snowman outfit, do a FB livestream for the World to see, take Fridays off…
that’s what I do.
…and this email is that I want you to do YOUR thing.
Then again, if you want to model that “glamorous” lifestyle from above, I can help 🙂
