Bob- The podcast with your Snowball sounds great on my Macbook built-in speakers. But why would a guy who travels as much as you get a desktop? I found it too confusing to remember whether the email I was looking for resided on the Imac or the laptop, so my imac is collecting dust.
All my questions about Hooper and Taylor and missing bloggers were answered when I reviewed your resources.
Five Steps is a nice New Year start. It is so easy to lose your way in this business, and wind up dazed and confused.
For a future topic, how about "How I became a musical Napoleon Hill". Explain how you went from focusing on your own music to focusing on the study of successful musicians and teaching the success methods to others. Does it ever bug you to not be prioritizing your own music?

Chuck, it's always good to hear from one of my oldest (as in longest-running) customers. Great questions. I plan to answer the last one in a blog post this week. Stay tuned.

BTW, folks, if you wanna hear some great rockabilly styled tunes, check out Chuck's band, Hillbilly Hellcats, at
