The long road to internet success, part 3: We veer into fear

Part 3 of the series, “The long road to internet success” Read Part 2 here. 

Last week we said that part 3 of this long journey would be about content, but a universal theme kept coming up: fear. Maybe not fear like horror movie jump scares, but something even more terrifying: the fear of failure. The fear, in my case, of getting on stage … and failing. So we’re going to veer here a bit and talk to some amazing entrepreneurs and/or comedians about overcoming the obstacles in your head.

The long road to internet success, part 2: When you’re consistently not consistent

Part 2 of the series, “The long road to internet success” Read Part 1 here

I’ve read that people who have children live longer. Not sure if that’s a punishment, but here it’s helpful to illustrate success. I’m not saying if you don’t have children you’re not a success. I have three and I’d love to hear from some non-breeders about how they sleep in and have extra cash. (And maybe in a sultry English accent not unlike Keira Knightley if at all possible.)

The point here is that kids are like goals: you gotta nurture them or they’ll never move out of the basement. And apparently that’s where I fail on a regular basis. I’m not tending to my goals and they’re wilting in the dark.
