The Adventures of Burning Boats

Hello and thanks for checking out this week's podcast entitled "The Adventures of Burning Boats".

In this week's podcast I talk about "The Cortez Principle". or the legend of how Spanish Conquistador Hernando Cortez landed in Mexico, and immediately ordered his men to burn all their boats, thus committing them to their mission, and eliminating any plans of an escape route.  The idea behind the story is that by removing the option of going back, Cortez forced himself (and his men) to either succeed in their mission, or die trying, since those were the options available to them.

I've decided to apply this principle to my own life, given that I realized that I have limited time, money, and resources, and above all, I need to start utilizing my time better, since of the three, it's the one thing that can't be replaced or replicated.

Don't forget to check out my new series called “Bootstrapping Without Boots: The Small Business Survival Guide”, where the goal is to show small business owners how you can get what you need within the first year of your business for $365 or less.  I’ll detail the step-by-step process of everything you need to do and pretty much cover the basics of what all small businesses should have to operate successfully in a Web 2.0 environment, and I also include some awesome Youtube tutorial videos with clips of stuff that can help you grow a small business.
