Blurring Doesn’t Work — YouTube Didn’t Save the Changes on My Video

The Custom Blur feature in the YouTube editing area is not at all user-friendly. I tried a few times to use it for obscuring my personal profile information in my Pizza Plan members area.

Finally, after waiting forever for my video to be processed for the third time only to find out that the blurring didn’t work, I asked the Telegram group about the best way to get that done.

That is when @blainjones answered and told me to just create a junk account with fake information.
I can do that.

I am the owner after all.

I am so new that I must have forgotten that I have seen that done elsewhere before at some point.
I was able to get my tutorial done and posted. It was very easy after learning that.

Thank you,@rcaine for your helpful feedback about the recording volume on my Pizza Plan walk-through video.

So, I have actually learned two new things.

In case you haven’t seen it, @markhodge wrote an awesome post promoting The Pizza Plan, entitled Shiny Object or Evergreen Plan.

Really appreciate the very nice review.

That is about all I have for you today!

Time for me to dive into some ListNerds curation.

Looking forward to going through my inbox there today.

Compromise or Sacrifice — Either One Will Get You What You Deserve — Which Path Will You Take?

A little background. Many years ago I bought a course called the Proven Amazon Course to learn how to sell items on Amazon. I did learn how to do that. And then decided that it wasn’t for me. I like the idea of selling physical products online but didn’t want the inventory cluttering my space at home.

Recently I sent some books to Amazon using their Fulfilled By Amazon program. That renewed my interest in the eCommerce business model. I never really lost interest but I still don’t want to put my hands on the inventory. That is a sticking point for me.

I belong to a group on Facebook started by the owner of the Proven Amazon Course. His name is Jim Cockrum. He wrote a book many years ago called The Silent Sales Machine. It has since gone through many editions. This year they are having a virtual conference called Ecommerce Opportunity 2022 Conference. It is free to people who have purchased the Proven Amazon Course. They are live streaming presentations today and tomorrow and they will be recorded as well.

One of the speakers I listened to this morning talked about how the voice we hear the loudest in our minds is our own. That means that we have to be really careful about how we talk to ourselves. He also talked about the two paths from which we need to choose. The first path is the one of compromise and giving up on our dreams. The second is one of sacrifice and not making excuses. Either path or choice will get us to the same destination which is what we deserve.

I Am Going to Stop Right Here!

Where will you be next year at this time?
