This blog has been with me from the very beginning.
Home to a number of unique ideas and fantastic discussions, Marketing through the Eyes of a Teenager will always hold a special place in my heart.
However, reading back through some older posts, I’ve come to the conclusion that I no longer agree with half of what I wrote.
This blog is filled to the brim with the nonsense and foolishness that comes with one’s first year in internet marketing.
Now, in no way am I saying that I disagree with everything I wrote. All I am saying is that this blog houses some content that, to be perfectly honest, I would be ashamed of showing to new internet marketers – content that could do more harm to them than good.
My main goal here is to help others, and I’d rather start fresh with only awesome content than run the risk of harming someone’s chances of reaching the success they deserve.
So, this ending is very abrupt. But I feel it needed to be done.
For the time being, you can visit me at my new home, http://JaredSilver.name.
It is very much under construction, so I ask that you please bear with me.
Do me a favor.
Do the world a favor.
Stop saying that you’re grateful.
That’s easy to do.
Stop saying it; start demonstrating it.
Saying that you’re grateful is easy.
It requires no work. No pressure. No change.
Showing that you’re grateful is difficult.
It’s putting yourself out there. Doing work that matters. Changing the world.
How are you going to demonstrate your gratitude this Thanksgiving?
P.S. – Here’s my thanks to you for being a reader. Enjoy.
Steve Jobs made more than consumer electronics.
Steve Jobs made a difference in the world.
Steve Jobs didn’t merely leave behind a bunch of computers.
Steve Jobs left behind a legacy.
Mourn not with your words, but with your actions.
Do not merely remember him, but carry on his legacy instead.
Steve Jobs changed the world.
Now, it’s our turn.
You hear the same story all the time:
“If I hadn’t missed my train, I would have been one of the last ones buried underneath the wreckage.”
“If my alarm clock didn’t break, I would have been right next door when the plane impacted the building.”
“Because my meeting was cancelled, I didn’t have to go to New York that day. I would have been sitting right inside when it happened.”
On this day, 10 years prior, 2977 people lost their lives to a series of horrific attacks on the values of liberty, freedom, and rights.
What if you had to make the drastic decision between slowly burning to death or jumping hundreds of feet to your death?
What if you had to think about all of your family, your friends, your acquaintances that you would be leaving behind?
What if you were the 2978th dead?
The fact is, you weren’t.
You were lucky.
Others – not so much.
So, don’t complain the next time your alarm clock malfunctions.
Don’t get upset with the guy in front of you who is driving slowly.
Don’t be angry at the lady behind the counter who can’t seem to figure out which meeting room you were supposed to be in.
It is thanks to things like these that many more people did not pass away on September 11, 2001.
In fact, my very own father was saved by a meeting cancellation.
