Typical Haters…

I think just about everyone has at least one hater. You know someone that has to say something negative about everything that you do, that takes the time out of their day to try and bring you down. We all know one person in our life that does this and if you are in any way successful you have a good amount of haters.

I’ve had quite a few haters over the years. First it started with people who said I couldn’t make ThinkComputers a real business. They would say I could never make money off of a website or that it would never work out. I just look at them and laugh and ask them how their 9 to 5 that they complain about so much is going. I also remind them that ThinkComputers has been my main business for almost 10 years now!

Another type of hater that I have come across is people who don’t like me because I am successful and I am well liked. That is probably about the dumbest thing I have ever heard of. Why would you hate me for being successful? Shouldn’t you want to learn so maybe you can become successful too? They just waste their time hating instead of seeing what I am doing to become successful and learning from it. Yes I have a good amount of friends, but is that a reason to hate on me? Maybe you don’t have any friends because you are negative all the time?

Talking about being negative all the time I was dating this girl not that long ago and I was telling her about launching the ThinkComputers YouTube channel and her response was, “Who wants to watch you?” Then I also told her about getting a national client for my new company and her response was, “Who would want to hire you?” Well as you can guess I am no longer dating that girl. No one wants to be around someone who is negative all the time!

You may think that having haters is a bad thing, but honestly it serves as great motivation. I love it when someone says something I do will never succeed. It makes me strive even harder to make it successful. You know you are doing something right when people are hating on you. Sorry if this post was a little out of left field, just something I have been thinking about lately. And on the subject of haters…

Launched the Official ThinkComputers YouTube Channel!

ThinkComputers has really not done that much video, although we should! All of the videos on ThinkComputers prior to a month ago were mixed in with videos on my personal YouTube page. This was an issue for many reasons so I decided one to create a channel specifically for ThinkComputers and to produce more video content.

So the ThinkComputers YouTube Channel was launched! I have done a good job so far keeping it updated. I want to post at least 1 video a week if not more. Right now we are doing a lot of unboxing videos, but we also will be doing video reviews, game reviews, and event coverage!

Another great thing about having a separate YouTube channel for ThinkComputers is that I am able monetize the videos to start making money from them. This not only will put some extra money in my pocket, but keep me more motivated to keep on producing videos.

Check out the ThinkComputers YouTube channel and let me know what you think! If you like the channel make sure you subscribe!

Logging the Hours This Week!

A while back I logged my hours and I came out only working 20 hours a week! This was back in 2007 so how many hours a week and I working now in 2011? Well at the end of the week we will find out! I feel like I am much more productive these days and I am getting more work done. This is a perfect way to see if I actually am! The main reason I am doing this is to see how exactly I am spending my days and which days I work the longest.

I am using an iPhone app called aTimeLogger to log my hours. This app is really cool and easy to use. If you want to keep track of anything such as work time, workout time, sleep time etc it is the perfect app and it saves all your data so you can look at it months later.

So how many hours do you think I will work this week? I am going to be tracking for a full 7 days. The average person works around 40 hours a week, so let’s see if I get around that mark. Anyways hope everyone is enjoying their Monday!

Instagram Update 9-24-11

If you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and other social networks you know I use Instagam a lot. In the past year it has replaced twitpic as my daily photo program. I really enjoy Instagram and you can create some really cool photos with it. So I have decided to share my photos with you each week. I will be posting 5 of my favorite photos during the past week. Let me know if you enjoy these posts!

Becoming Personal Again…

Well the other night I went back and read every post I’ve ever written on this blog. I think I just wanted to look back over the past 6 years, but I noticed something. Up until a few years ago I was really being personal, talking about what was going on in my life, how my business’s were going etc. I honestly love reading those posts again, seeing how motivated I was and seeing the encouragement from friends and other people who commented on the blog.

Well after a night of thinking I really need to start blogging like that again. No only is it a good way to start up a great conversation again (no one really comments here anymore!) but it is also a great way for people to see what I am going through and how things are going. This also is going to serve as good motivation to get back in to personal blogging. I admit for the past 2 years this blog has been quite dormant, so hopefully I will be keeping it up to date like I used to.

One thing I really enjoyed about blogging back then was the group of bloggers I became friends with. As of right now only 2 of those people maintain blogs now. So I am going to start looking for some great personal blogs to check out and comment on. Obviously this blog will not be all personal things, I will still be talking about things that interested me, giving you tips and other things I want to write about.

Stay tuned a lot of great post are to come!
