I went to Legislative Day in Albany, NY today, and it was an incredible experience. I got updated on what was going on in the Legislature, met several senators and a few assemblymen. One of the speakers had us keep repeating that we needed to have boldness, and he was referring to having the courage to approach our representatives about how we feel about key issues that are coming up for a vote.
How does this impact my writing to make money on the Internet?? Quite a lot, actually. I decided to practice boldness on that speaker, and among the large crowd of people milling around, I was actually able to approach the speaker where he stood in the hallway, and using BOLDNESS, I approached him, and in less than 30 seconds, explained who I was, what I was doing, and got PERMISSION to scan information he had handed out, write an article on it, and post it on the Internet, linking to his site!
What that means to me is several articles, and maybe a separate blog about politics, which is right up my alley, and I was using HIS idea, in more ways than one!
The lesson I walk away with today is that there is an opportunity everywhere for an article, or articles, and if you practice boldness, you might get a more positive response than you imagined! The worst that could have happened is that he might have said no, and I wouldn't be any farther behind than I started!
