The Lost Art Of Trying Things

try.png

I'm an entrepreneur!

I've been one basically for as long as I can remember, but officially since around 2003. That's when I actually started making real income from my efforts, but it's been in my blood since day one.

Something I learned from a very early age is that, entrepreneurs...Try things!

We take risks.

We poke around.

We always try to be on the leading edge of things!

For me personally, I can remember a few times in my career that I went against the grain and 'tried' something that wasn't common practice in my industry. The first was this whole affiliate marketing thing way back in the early 2000's. I got into this service called 'PayPal' when it was frowned upon to put your financial information into any online website.

Next was social media. I fought in my industry to bring social media to a world of online marketing that just didn't want to hear about it. Lots of people were more concerned about traditional advertising methods, rather than focusing on the 'people'.

And then of course....The blockchain and crypto! LOL If you would have seen some of the comments from people in the affiliate marketing community about 5 years ago about this stuff, you'd laugh. But of course, now they are all promising 'unlimited Bitcoin profits' with the latest crap they are pedalling.

Point is...My company has always 'tried things'. We always say, let's throw things against the wall and see what sticks. Not un-calculated risks, but understanding what is new when it comes to tech and the markets.

Tonight, we 'tried something'...

This is our first ever Twitter Spaces for the CTP Tribe!

(If the link doesn't show properly, you can click here to check it out!)

Now, fair warning....The first few minutes was me screwing around trying to figure out how the app works LOL

But after a few minutes, @blainjones @elianaicgomes and a host of CTP Tribe members hung out and gave Twitter Spaces a try!

This whole social audio stuff isn't really new per se, because I've seen plenty of people on Hive swear by it! And I have to give kudos out to @kevinli for pushing me to give it a try lol And it'll be interesting to see what the numbers are like from the recording in a few days from now...

This is what it's done since it aired which was about 30 minutes ago...

Nothing huge but heck, one new follower directly from the event is a win in my books :)

The point is....As an entrepreneur you HAVE to try new things!

Will I use Twitter Spaces in my business going forward?

There's a lot I thought was good about the experience and others that I thought weren't so hot. But the fact is, this is a platform we need to try! This isn't a post about the future of social media because let's be honest, I believe that'll be found on this blockchain lol

The main message is...If you want to call yourself an entrepreneur, you have to adopt the 'Lost Art of...Trying things!'

Never know until you try. I like to always look back on things I've done and say I gave it my best if it failed or succeeded. Dissolvability on a lot of platforms has become very difficult in the last 2 years.

Absolutely man. And you know the kind of environment I'm talking about. It seems like most people would rather not even give it a shot and say it failed, rather than try things out.

The curiosity to keep trying and exploring new things is so important. In the race of life, we lose it.

For sure. Have to keep trying things, you never know what will be a hit.

You're like me, I hate inertia and like to keep things moving forward. I tend to be the early adopter in my area and am always up on the latest innovations, but have not heard of Spaces. Sounds like a fun little experiment, and I'm glad that you found some utility in it.

I think there is also one more thing about trying new things. You get to experience the "content" as you document what you try. And that in itself is a good choice for just trying random things and keep creating content along the way. I think like clubhouse even twitter spaces would get a lot of future value if used the right way.

Great motivational tips! Many people often give up even at the thought stage. Although no one knows the end result if you approach it creatively or look at things from a different angle.

There are a few bugs that need to worked out, but once we figured a few of them out the rest of the night went well I think. It would be great for pod casts for sure.

It is something new that might work out and then it might not, but you will never know if you do not try it out.

Trying things is good way of staying above the curve, it reveals new levels of understanding and brings unrealized opportunities. With the need to constantly adapt and adjust, the more things you try the more you're able to adapt and adjust.

I don't see anything wrong with trying things out. If you like it and the results show, then I don't see a reason to not continue using it.

Nice job. I honestly don't spend as much time on Twitter as I should. It can be a huge time suck if you start following too many people. I think using it in moderation is the key. I had a personal account and I soon found that it was a full time job keeping up with all the stuff on your feed. Kind of like Hive I guess :) I hope this grows really big for you.

No risks, no gain. That is what I usually keep in mind.
Thanks for your encouraging story. 😊

Awesome that you tried Spaces. There are a lot of NFT spaces that run on there and people think that is Web3. Would love to see more Hive based spaces running. I've been cohosting a Space since April where we talk about Creating Content on the Blockchain that is geared toward people who know very little about the blockchain.

Would love to know when you schedule your next one and I'll try to support it.
