This is going to be shrot as I haven’t posted in Forever!!! I still gotta set up the podcast page and what not BUUUUTTTTT here’s the quick of it.
Developer To Millionaire is dead. Sorry, just couldn’t keep up with it, life happens, we move on. I got some great content on there, I’ll have to try and put it on the new podcast, but it’s when I have the time.
My new Podcast is on ANCHOR!!! Here’s the link to it:
(The Correct Link, SOrry about that)
It’s also on iTunes and Google and all the fun sites that have podcasts on them as TheJonPerezShow!
It’s fun for me so I talk about anything that’s really on my mind at the time, so check it out and enjoy!!
That’s all I got! Have a blessed day!!

I’ll probably get some flack for this, as I have in the past, but I really don’t care, because I’ll stand behind this rule forever.
Take A Break
The worst thing that can happen to you is Burnout and believe me when I say, that shyt sucks!
I generally work every night from 8 to 10, but keep in mind that I have 2 little kids. One is 1, and the other is 4.
This get’s pretty exhausting. My youngest doesn’t sleep very well, so there are some nights where I am just way too tired to do anything!
Here’s what I do…
I try to think of anything that needs to get done that I can get done pretty quickly. On Monday it was to create a FaceBook group. So that’s what I did. It took me a few minutes to get the graphic in and set up, but that was it.
I went to sleep right after that, I was totally shot.
And THAT’S PERFECTLY OK!
It get’s really annoying to constantly hear, “Keep going, don’t stop, you need to work work work, someone else is going to beat you” OMG Please SHUT UP!
We’re freakin’ human, right? Sometimes, we need a damn break!
[clickToTweet tweet=”We’re freakin’ human! Sometimes, we need a damn break!” quote=”We’re freakin’ human, right? Sometimes, we need a damn break!”]
So the next time you’re feeling rushed, or a lot of pressure to get something done, just take some time for yourself to enjoy the moment.
Sit back, grab a cup of coffee, maybe go for a walk and get some fresh air. If it’s too cold (Like where I live) watch a funny tv show and just enjoy some time for yourself. Then when it permits, go back and do something.
Trust me, it’s totally worth it! When you feel refreshed, your brain will work so much better and things will just pop in! 🙂
Make sure to join the FaceBook Group Zero To 30k, then you can vent your heart out 🙂 It’s definitely a healthy practice and a no judgment zone.Post Views: 877
Welcome to the first episode of the Throwback Series! There’s only a few of these but it’s going to be super fun to see where these folks were at over a year ago, and then the revamped versions of where they are now.
In this episode, I interview Hani Mourra. Super cool guy, he actually works full time like me! He created the amazing suite of plugins called Simple Podcast Press, Simple Video Press, Simple Social Press, and the latest amazing plugin called Repurpose (not released yet, but soon to be).
His goal is to help people automate with the right tools to help us content creators, grow our audience!
I use 2 of the plugins on my site for videos and podcasts, and I can’t wait for the release of his new one.
Hear Hani talk about his path to creating plugins with no programming background. What started with an idea, quickly grew rapidly.
I had a great time chatting with Hani, and I’m sure you love listening to his journey.

Yeah, I said it! Perfection is for suckers!
The problem is, so many of us need things to be perfect. You may think you don’t, but if a site is taking you forever and a day to launch because this or that isn’t right, then you’re a sucker!
I’m not trying to be mean; I just want to get this through to anyone who is going through the never ending project struggle. The projects that need this logo moved over 2 pixels to the left, and this text needs to be a little bigger, and let me get ten people to look at this before I get back to you. And WE’VE ALL BEEN THROUGH THIS! If you’re not currently a sucker, I bet you were.
I definitely was! There was always this constant need of “The client just needs to be happy.” or “The client needs to approve this, I mean it’s their site.” Looking back and learning from everything I’ve done, I realized, this is a horrible way to manage clients!
First, let’s look at perfection in it’s most basic form. It’s ENTIRELY SUBJECTIVE! What’s perfect for you isn’t’ perfect for someone else, and what’s perfect for them isn’t perfect for their partner and so on and so on.
You end up in this never ending cycle of people who want things to be perfect the only way they see it, and much like art, no one knows what they’re talking about.
I was just listening to the new Gary V Book, “Ask Gary Vee” and it’s excellent so far. He said something like “I hate perfection. Just move on. Perfection is in the eye of the beholder my friend,” and man, I could not agree more!
When you take on a project, yes, the client is paying, but much like I pay a mechanic to fix my car, I’m not going to start telling him how to put together my transmission. I don’t know why web designers take so much crap from clients.
Who’s the professional web guru here? You run your business, and let me run mine. My job is to help you, not to do whatever you want. Why? Because you don’t know anything about the web!
Simple as that!
