Incapable of Looking Backwards

Posted by | Uncategorized | 2 Comments

@garyvee In all your business ventures/career, is there anything you wish you would’ve done differently? — Chris Morgan (@HollywoodMoegan) June 7, 2014 This has been a common theme in just about all of the Q&As I’ve ever done, and I find it fascinating. It’s one of those questions that I love and hate at the same time. There is something inside of me that makes completely and utterly incapable of looking backwards. The answer to these questions is always “no.” I suppose at the same time the answer could very well be “maybe everything,” but I know what the net result has been, and of course I’m very happy.

That they’d look at it like starting a website, or opening a retail store, or painting, or anything else in life. I waited for people to realize that social media, like absolutely everything else in the world, is only as valuable as the person who uses it. I just assumed that it would happen, but here we are, mid-way through 2014, and we continue to have the argument. So I decided to make this Slideshare to really drive home this point once and for all. For all of you who understand that nothing has really changed, that this is simply the current state of the internet, and that the best users…
