How do I get into the New York Times?

  
  
  
  
how togetinnyewyorktimes2

It's been about seven years since I sat across the dinner table from Cameron who had the honor of being invited to celebrate Gary Vaynerchuk's 300th video blog for Wine Library TV. After dinner, my new friend says to connect and follow Gary V - and so I did.  No, we are not best friends (though I do have a book Gary V signed saying: "To my new BFF") but he does remain an inspiration and resource. What you may not know is that Gary Vaynerchuk is on HubSpot's advisory board.  As a HubSpot partner and perpetual inbound marketer, I appreciate working with a company with such an advantage.

Perfect. Everything is going as planned.
If you think in terms of poking the box.
Poke, adjust, poke, adjust.  What happens when we do this?

I love when reality bears its head and says “I am reality".

Advice for someone with lots of expertise, but afraid to market and sell

  
  
  
  
afraid of marketing sales

This topic relates to almost anyone, not just entrepreneurs. If you have a job and a quota, this can still work. Entrepreneurs have a harder time because there is no one standing over their head holding them accountable. Entrepreneurs create their own obstacles since feelings, emotions and comfort levels can have a more dramatic impact until a personal commitment and discipline takes over. 

The trick to creating content

The trick to content:
Don’t think.
Listen to the questions.
Answer them.
Done.

Those who think before they listen can get lost in the possibilities.
The deeper they think, the bigger the possibilities.
It’s not that they are wrong, but it quickly becomes a buffet of opportunities without focus.

So "think first" is not the mindset. It is "listen first" and "serve" which means you may have to Unthink.  Like those in this video:

Duplicate your way to success

  
  
  
  
imitate

I love to sing. (Though you will rarely find me singing now)
When I was in 8th grade I took choir class in junior high school.
Found out I wasn't as good I as I wished for.
Couldn't read music well, could not sing a note on request.
And so I copied the person next to me.
I became an expert at listening to the person to my right and immediately matching their pitch. I believed no one noticed... at least no one said anything.
It was the best I could do. By being a fast imitator and keeping up, I passed the class.

---  Which could be referred to as mimic, copycat, impersonator, parodist, pretend, fake, simulate, replicate or duplicate. Most of which are not words to be proud of.
