Chelsea Dinsmore

Scott Dinsmore was an amazing blogger…

After learning the basics with a few previous blogs, Scott launched a new website called Live Your Legend.

1 Paralyzing Blogging Limiting Belief and How to Slay this Dastardly Demon

blogging limiting beliefs

I am staring at a blank page here in Myanmar.

I am writing these words – offline – in a Word document but my web browser remains blank. Clear. A casualty of a less than stellar Burmese internet connection.

My wife Kelli and I prepared ourselves for this. We knew this country had recently opened up to the outside world. Having a strong 4G network is not high on the list of Myanmar priorities these days.

But even though I was aware of this issue I still have to be mindful of a paralyzing blogging limiting belief dancing around in my monkey mind, bedeviling me like a nasty little demon, trying to snuff out my successful blogging actions.

When it comes to effective business blogging, Marcus Sheridan just might be the king of the content marketing jungle.

He knows how to increase your digital marketing ROI because he’s done it first hand.

Maybe that’s why he is called The Sales Lion? 😉

And now, Marcus has shared his story together with some additional case studies in his new book: They Ask, You Answer.

Here’s why anyone who wants to make more income online should listen to this interview: in 2008, Marcus was co-owner of a brick-and-mortar business–a swimming pool supply store called River Pool and Spa. (He still owns it today.)

Then, in 2008, the economy crashed, and many advisers told Marcus his River Pool and Spa store should declare bankruptcy.
