Bloggers and business builders commonly make this mistake, ending up with stunted growth (and stifled creativity).
There’s a stage we all go through in our writing/creating. I certainly went through it.
And though it may be OK when we’re just starting out, it eventually makes the work tedious, squelches the engagement of our audience, and causes our writing (and our businesses) to fade off into the noise… ignored and boring.
In this video you’ll learn how to fix it and start getting better results from more joyful, honest work. Give it a watch: [Continue reading…]
There’s a huge debate in the business world about “lifestyle” businesses. Is there something deep and true here?
Could it completely change the direction you choose and your definitions of “wealth,” “purpose” and “happiness?”
Or is it just a fad, a buzzword of the time used to sell books (and hammocks and beach-side wifi)?
In this episode WE. GET. INTO IT. Corbett’s experience (he’s been doing this for a while) and insatiable hunger for Mexican guitar music drives us onward through the big questions about what you may be taking for granted and which ball is made of rubber. [Continue reading…]
Our podcast launch week was a big success! Here’s some of the best resources we’ve found on podcasting (and some of our favorite podcasts).

As a business builder you absolutely have to learn to balance the creative stuff with the business stuff.
This is something Chase Reeves is well versed in. He’s one of the hosts of the show and we get to know him in part 2 of the Meet Your Hosts series.
In this entertaining episode he shares some lessons learned as he navigated his career through media and project management stuff to reading LifeHacker.com for 10 hours a day to newborns and lay-offs and start-ups, oh my!
There’s much to glean from his colorful way of looking at these things. (five finger shoes, anyone?)
Do you wonder how you’ll ever actually do the things you dream about? In this episode Corbett Barr shares how he made the transition from dreaming to doing.
It wasn’t easy for him (wait till the bit about his panic at the Mexican border) but it completely changed his path, expanding his perspective about where he wanted to go with his career (and life).
If you’ve been a reader of Think Traffic for a while you already know Corbett. But in this episode you’ll discover what started the journey from a burnt out consultant to an electrified, successful and celebrated blogger and business builder.
