There appears to be a grass-roots movement to have another UnSeminar.
I hope enough people commit to coming to make it viable.
If it sounds like something you’d want to be part of, find some UnSeminarians on FaceBook and join the conversation. Or, leave a comment here and I’ll help you get connected.
Of course, I’m delighted with this and am looking forward to reconnecting with old friends and making new friends. UnSeminars are only about Internet Marketing on the surface. Yes, you can learn how to make money there – but that information has a very short lifespan.
The connections and relationships are what’s important.
Since I’ve moved to my off-the-grid cabin in the desert near Terlingua, I’ve kinda changed my direction. I notice that a lot of former UnSeminarians have, too.
I’m keeping busy composing music for TV, video and film projects. I’m making music videos for my musician buddies. I’m exploring some spiritual stuff that I think is exciting – and I wrote a book about that.
I’ve also restarted my music career, in a modest way, by playing gigs here in the Big Bend. I also do some session work on other people’s records.
I’ve also started a 501.c.3 charity. I’m not quite ready to talk about that, but it involves formalizing the structure for the charity work I’ve been doing for the past year. The bumpersticker: we’ll be able to accept charitable donations and apply for grants, which will allow us to do bigger projects and help more people. You’ll be hearing a LOT about this soon.
But, to be honest, the most interesting (to me) things I’m doing involve watching the sun rise and set here in the Texas Big Bend. Playing guitar (for free) on the porch in the Terlingua Ghost Town with my friends.
Yes, having an online business that you can run from anywhere is cool. It finances a lot of the toys I use in my other projects and buys me the time to do fun stuff. But… remember, I’ve been doing this for a decade, now.
I’m spending a lot less time with beginning marketers and more time consulting. Working with multi-million dollar corporations to help them accomplish their online goals is about as frustrating as teaching a beginning marketer how to accomplish their goals- but, the budgets and the paychecks are bigger.
Since I moved to the desert, I haven’t been North of Alpine, Texas – and, aside from the possibility of an UnSeminar – have no plans to. I’ve always been an introvert (most performers are, strangely). I can pick and choose who I hang out with and what I do, and I value this luxury and defend it.
Recently, I backed out of speaking at an IM event. With bad manners and at the last minute. Because, as I contemplated facing another room full of beginning Internet Marketers, I realized that I just didn’t have anything to say. Already said it. That’s also the main reason I turn down TV and radio interview requests. I can’t be bothered repeating the same thing over and over again, and I don’t want to sell you another book/video/course that you’re not going to use.
Although the granular level procedures change, the meta-concepts don’t. It’s easy to assume that anybody who wants an Internet Marketing business already has one or knows hot to create one. There are free books, like “Money From Anywhere,” that explain the whole thing.
My new book, “Practical Business Wisdom and Magic,” has my most up-to-date information.
You could also just read the last year’s posts on this blog- the information is there.
Of course, it’s more fun to learn Internet Marketing at an UnSeminar, but that’s not why you go to an UnSeminar. You’ll meet some of the most interesting and talented people on the planet. You’ll make connections that will turn into friendships that will last for years.
You can’t buy that with money.
See you at UnSeminar X.
