Remember a few weeks ago when I told you the story of how WatchMeCode’s subscription service came to be? No? Check it out. It’s worth reading, and it sets up some context, here. But anyways… at the beginning of that post, I talked about how I was trying to give up on screencasting. It was becoming a thankless, sales-less, time suck that I couldn’t stand anymore. I was seriously down about this – near depressed, if not completely there (yes, I’ve dealt with depression in the past – I’m not just being dramatic in this case).
Well, guess what.
You get to hear the full back story of just how bad it was for me.
Entreprogrammers: Episode 4
I recently announced the release of the Entreprogrammers podcast, where I told you that we (John, Josh and I) would be sharing everything we go through as entrepreneurial developers. I wasn’t lying or exaggerating about that. There is very little that we won’t say when we know we’re recording. And the most recent release of episodes for the podcast is proof, starting with Episode 4.
In this episode, I lay it all out there. I let the guys know just how frustrated I am and how I am desperately looking for something to quit – with screencasting being my #1 choice. It’s a raw, unfiltered look at the downs in the ups-and-downs of entrepreneurial life.
From the show notes:
Derick expresses frustration in being involved in several projects, but somehow feeling lack of productivity in the right areas of his entrepreneurial marketing strategies; the team focuses on time management using Derick’s current situation as a reality check model – a great deal to be learned from this brainstorming session as the team isolates barriers and provides the solutions necessary in the dynamics of the entrepreneurial effort.
