Writing and Sharing
Can’t believe it but it’s been over a month since I wrote my last blog on this website.
This has been the LONGEST break where I have not written in almost 3 years.
And I miss you.
I miss sharing and especially writing to you.
Of course you probably have heard me on MLM NATION podcast or on Facebook but I don’t feel it’s the same as I’m sharing with you directly on this blog.
As a kid, English was always my worst class since it was my 3rd language (after Chinese Mandarin and Chinese Cantonese) but I realized early on that I liked to write.
I started my first diary as a 7th grader but it stopped after a month. I basically wrote cause I felt that it allowed me to vent and share my thoughts.
Remember, this was WAY before Facebook or social media.
I wrote that diary mainly because I liked this girl and I felt that I had to tell someone about it!
And then Miss Evans in 10th grade English had us write a diary for a month and I enjoyed that but it ended after the assignment was over.
But I missed writing.
So in December in 1991, I started writing a diary everyday and since then, asides from a 3 week break in 2009 where I thought about giving it up, I haven’t missed a day.
I still keep that diary going and also I’ve been writing 2 books for my kids. Every night I spend 5 – 10 minutes writing my thoughts and feelings about them before I go to bed.
So I guess I really love writing but I’ve never considered myself a writer till recently.
I realized I do a LOT of writing.
1) I write a daily diary
2) I’m writing a book for my oldest son, Ethan
3) I’m writing a book for my youngest, Brendan
4) I write a monthly newsletter for my MLM NATION Insider members
5) I write blogs for MLM NATION’s website (more on this later)
6) And of course… And I write this blog!
So, it can be overwhelming and I guess that’s why I haven’t written here in awhile but it’s going to change.
I’ve been writing a blog every week for almost 3 years without fail and this was first time I’ve taken a break.
Main reason is because there’s been too much going on and I felt that there was no point to write just for the sake of writing.
I wanted to have something of value to share.
Tons have been going on since I last wrote so here are some exciting things.
Launch of MLM NATION podcast
The launch of MLM NATION podcast has been very successful.
At this moment, we’re top 20 in new business podcasts on iTunes and also the #1 new Education/Training podcast on iTunes!
Thanks for all the support and feedback!
Launch of MLM Nation Website
We also have launched MLM NATION’s website at www.MLMNation.net where you can find all the episodes, show notes and resources.
I’ve also relaunched a second blog on MLM NATION.
Going forward, all content related to MLM and network marketing training will be on MLM NATION’s blog while all personal content and sharing will be here.
That means there will be more writing! 🙂
So this will be more of a personal blog and now that I have 2 sites, it’s easier to keep things separate.
Good Times with Good Friends
I got to hang out (though very briefly) with one of my best friends, Simon from Hong Kong as he and his family visited Los Angeles.
Visit from Mom
And of course, one of most memorable moments was having my mom visit us for a week.
Finally, fatherhood has been super fun and rewarding.
It can get tiring and crazy at times but I always remind myself to “live in the now” because I’ll never get these precious moments back.
Everyday is a Blessed Day
So that’s what my April has been like.
It’s come and gone and I’m super grateful and blessed.
Everyday is a blessed day and I start every morning with gratitude.
Stay positive, stay focused… and remember, I’ve never met a negative cynical person that has been successful in life.
