What It Takes

Posted by on Apr 24, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Personal Psyche, Wow Posts | 0 comments

Abstract:  I am no one special but many people have asked me for advice on how to get started in blogging, podcasting, or live-streaming.  There seems to be a huge gap in what people are willing to share and how much they are willing to help beginners.  As for me, anything I know I will openly share regardless of how people feel about it that are already doing it.  It promotes unity, builds stronger entertainment, and personally, builds friendships.  Below are some tips that I wanted to share based upon where I am at with my own journey.  I am no better than anyone else nor have I stopped in my quest on climbing this mountain to the top.  In fact, when I reach the peak, some of you will have already made it there because I am pushing you ahead of me.  Regardless, I hope this helps someone in …

Witnessing Success through Integrity and Truth

Posted by on Apr 12, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Personal Psyche, Wow Posts | 0 comments

There are only a handful of people who truly are inspiring in the live-streaming community today.  At least to me.  Of course there are thousands upon thousands of live streamers.  Several are purely out for themselves and just trying to make some coin from viewers across several avenues of commerce.  There is nothing wrong with this and you can pretty much tell within moments of joining a stream if this is the case.  Also, some have the ability to stream full time, which of course, is pretty awesome if you think about it.  I  always say do what you love.  If this is live streaming full time, then do it wholeheartedly and reach for the stars!  Forget those who are negative.  Let them stand in awe of your success.
Regardless of the intention of the streamer, it really comes down to content, personality, listening, and interacting with viewers.  To me, that is …

The Cross-Realm Podcast # 14 – Get Back

Posted by on Apr 3, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, The Cross-Realm Podcast Series, Wow Posts | 0 comments

The Clown is back in the recording seat bringing you the NEXT episode of The Cross-Realm Podcast with #14 in 2014!  Wow, it has certainly been awhile since my last podcast posted on August 18, 2013.  The best thing about having your own schedule and doing your own thing, you set the dates and times when you want to continue.  If people are still interested, they will listen and enjoy.  If they are not, they will move on to entertainment of their fancy.
I have not touched Audacity since then so I was a little rusty editing this podcast so you will notice some volume issues and such, but hey, I am getting back into it and its not bad at all.  I enjoyed it and all of this is pretty much off the cuff.  I like recording and doing my shows extemporaneously.  The pace is actual conversation pace.  I hope …

Making Gold – Shinn Style!

Posted by on Mar 26, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Wow Posts | 0 comments

Gold making does not have to be overly complicated.  Rather, I fancy myself on earning gold as EASY as possible.  When I learn something new, I always try to break it down to its simplest form and make it repeatable.  If there is something I do not understand, then I ask others who have already done what I want to do.  The important point here is, you can make just as much gold as anyone else, whether you are new or have been doing this for years and are just getting back into the game.  What does it take?  Time, dedication, and a little risk to try new things.

What I wanted to take a moment and highlight here is a special person in the gold making community that really needs a shout-out for his efforts in helping people learn gold.  He is a stand up gent, live-streamer, and fellow blogger. …

Monday and I – Updates from Profitz

Posted by on Mar 24, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Wow Posts | 0 comments

Maybe it’s just me or this Pink Floyd music is getting me in the writing mood for some deep thought provoking, gnome wackin’, killer internal stuff.  Yeah, something like that.  Anyways, how is everyone doing?  I wanted to take a moment and send you some positive thoughts on what I am up to and what you can expect from the Clown as we continue onward into 2014.
First, I am learning ALL of what I do through failure.  I learn to succeed through failure and sometimes that makes me into a better clown (I mean man).  When I face obstacles, even in real-life, I always remember what a former martial arts master told me, “seek to the heart of the problem to find true safety“.  A scriptural reference would be found in Ephesian 4:26, “…do not let the sun set while you are still angry“.  This is how I have …
