While appearing on Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show, Trace Atkins, a country superstar, shares his story about his childhood and life before he was famous.
Trace was a DJ in the Southwest for five years. He then moved to Nashville and continued playing in bars for three more years before he signed his first recording deal.

It’s great when we can use free advertising to make sales, right?
Like when affiliates send you traffic.
Oh, wait… you have to PAY those affiliates.
Okay, but when you do guest posting, and appear on podcasts, and haunt forums and do all those other things that are free…
Except all of that takes TIME. And it may – or may not – send you the traffic you seek.

I love to look at markets outside of the online marketing niche to see what others are doing.
For example, Tesla.
In 2008, the electric car manufacturer was worth about $15 million.

I’m on a lot of mailing lists simply because if something is working in another niche, there’s a good chance it’s going to work in my niches as well.
One of the lists I’m on is for dating advice – specifically, dating advice for people who want to date men. (I’m also on lists for people who want to date women, married couples having problems and recently separated couples. As I said, I join a lot of lists because I’m always in learning mode.)
