Because a bunch of you missed the Producing 101 teleseminar.

One of my bloggin’ missions this year was to give you what you want. So back in the frigid month of January (remember that nonsense?) I wrote a blog asking you specifically “what your problem was.”  I wanted you to tell me what you wanted in posts, seminars, and more.  And I’d adjust my New Year’s resolutions to try and deliver.

And one thing you don’t like to do is quit.  You started something, so G-d Dammit, you’re gonna finish it. I’ve always been that way in every aspect of my life, including the little things, like watching a movie . . . or reading a book.  I just have to finish it.  You know what I’m talking about right? …
