One of the things I love most about our blog is that Gary and I write and or say what we want, when we want. Another reason is there is no debating as to why we write or say it. We simply want to share our experience with you if you care to hear it. This is our digital home and, unlike our own homes, ‘Mi casa es su casa’, so everyone is invited… and can leave any time they want. That is the true beauty of the internet.
The Great Thing About Blogs
Blogs are incredible when you know how to navigate them. Unfortunately, there is no good way to extract all the good information unless you have a guide to help you. If you have a blog, I suggest you create a post like this to help people find all the articles you have worked so hard and so long to write. It is such a tremendous injustice that most blogs have less than 1% of its information read.
I was inspired to do this post as Gary and I constantly send article links to people who ask questions about various subjects that we have covered in detail somewhere on this blog… So I have created this guide..
Here is a simple, easy-to-follow guide through that should include everything you wanted to know but (perhaps) were perhaps afraid to ask.
If you look at the last few entries you will see they are very solution-based and offer quite a bit of information on branding, something Gary (in my opinion) is one of the best at. Gary has spent the last 23 years handling the branding for four of companies in which we have owned together, as well as for some of the top brands and entertainment personalities in the world.

Turning Failure Into Success
I, on the other hand, write a lot about what I have learned from failure, and how to turn failure into success. So much so, I wrote a book about it. It is no twenty- page E-Book. It is an eleven chapter, 213-page book that contains fifty-five case studies of what I have learned from the mistakes I have made over the course of the last 20 plus years as an entrepreneur. If you want to find out more about it, click How To Ruin A Business. You will see that some people and brands you may have heard of have said some good things about it.
I have also dedicated an entire section of this blog to everything an entrepreneur should NOT do when running a business. My belief is that, by reversing the traditional way we learn and teaching people to learn from the mistakes of others, we take the ego out of the equation so entrepreneurs can take their guards down and learn objectively, while still allowing them to enjoy the freedom of their own experience. If you want to go to that section, click what not to do in business to see the list of articles.
How To Raise Money To Start A Business
I have also written a number of articles on the subject of raising capital and pursuing investors. I have been on both sides of the table as well as in the middle quite a few times so I have an interesting perspective and decent insight on the subject I think. If you want to read those articles, click how to raise money to start a business.
Help For New Businesses
If you are starting a business, there is a section you should not miss, as it will give you access to 4 training modules that Gary and I spent quite a bit of time on. It is called The Start-Up Toolkit. A lot of people contact Gary and I and ask us questions that we have already answered in detail in those videos. To find out about The Start-Up Toolkit, click help for new businesses.
