And so It begins…
Over the last year or more I’ve been trying to sort out precisely which direction I would endeavor to travel next. It’s been a very complicated, as well as confusing process.
I have lots of projects going on simultaneously such as: I wanted to release another book (e.g., The Business Of I), along with wanting to update my last one. I wanted to do more speaking, offer more seminars, do more impromptu events such as live interviews, and on, and on.
The list became so large, and the options for allotting the proper time to each became so onerous not only in the conceptualize parts, but to then hone them down so that the actual “work” can begin, followed with; completing, pricing, choosing which platform to release them on, and more. It became near exhausting before I even started. So much so, that many of the “ideas” I wanted to pursue actually became too much like “chores.” And we all know what happens once doing something you like/love becomes a chore – you unknowingly procrastinate. With the worst type being “over analyzing everything.”
Finally I decided enough was enough, and the breakthrough happened. That “breakthrough” came about during the summer of last year. The idea is something I thought about years, and years ago. And for years, I had pushed it to the sides because the timing, or platforms never seemed quite right. Then, out of the blue, it re-emerged, and here’s what that idea is…
What I wanted was a format, along with a site, which represented not only my views in a more articulated forum, but more importantly, how subscribers could access those views or ideas in one place. What I didn’t want (or at least was trying to avoid) was creating something that’s only a derivative form of what’s already out there. I believe this to be anything but.
This is truly original in nature, content, as well as groundbreaking delivery, pricing, and format.
To my knowledge no one, and I do mean precisely that, no-body is currently offering what I will be doing with MYTR, especially in the manner in which I will. Big statements to make for sure, but as many of you well know – that’s what I do. Will it work? Who knows, but that’s what being at the “tip of the spear” truly means doesn’t it?
In a nutshell MYTR will be a daily one hour based program delivered live, and hosted by yours truly. It will combine a plethora of my assorted ideas or works in a no-holds barred approach, and much more. It will focus on such issues as: The business news of the day, markets, along with my commentary, opinion, as well as pragmatic ideas on how they can, or will affect business. Along with this, I will also delve into subjects such as strategy, sales, motivation, boardroom insights, entrepreneurship. Again, and much, much more.
No politics! Except for how some form of policy may affect businesses e.g., corporate tax, tariffs, monetary policy, etc.
There will also be other video, audio, or articles added along the way with recorded seminars or teleconference type projects, to name just a few, that I would normally sell as stand alone packages. i.e, sales topics, self improvement, motivation, goal setting, etc., as I feel, or see the need fits.
This won’t be for everybody, and no – it won’t be a “free” service. Quite the contrary.
It will also be exclusive, as well as exclusionary by design. i.e., It’ll only appeal to those who want to be on the cutting edge of business, and want to be with others of the same caliber. Or put another way: It’s meant for the movers and the shakers. The one’s who are not only “in” business but rather “get” business. Whether they own one, work for one, run one, or want to start one. I intend to make this their program.
I’m creating this entirely for the person who truly wants information they can not only use, but can’t get anywhere else. Again: This is meant for business people looking for information that gives them an edge. i.e., The entrepreneur, the small business owner, the corporate CEO of the large or small, sales professional, et al.
Over the course of the next few weeks I’ll be releasing samples of precisely what the “MYTR BROADCAST” entails. But for now I wanted to make the announcement on this day.
The reasoning was (just to reiterate – it’s not based in the political) once Mr. Trump under the banner of “Make America Great Again” became the nominee, then was nominated, then won election, I thought what better timing – if – in fact, the “Make America Great Again” campaign truly gets adopted by the nation. For if it does? We’ve got a lot of work to do, And I want to be right in there with anyone else willing. And again – to be perfectly clear: Regardless of one’s political affiliation.
So when it comes to this new endeavor I’m creating many will ask: Why this model?
Because I believe in leading by example, while also believe – this will be the future model going forward for others. i.e., I can’t give advice why a business should charge for their wares – and never charge for mine. It doesn’t make sense or better still – stand up to the smell test.
I also believe in the “buy in” principle because I know it works via my own experience And, there’s no sense in giving away “million dollar” advice or insights for free – for it to only fall on deaf ears with idle hands.
Again just to make clear: MYTR will be a separate, stand alone site, and entity from this blog. As of today and going forward in the foreseeable future: Nothing changes here on MarkStCyr dot-com, both in content, postings, articles, and more.
As for MYTR, I truly believe, and will endeavor to produce a broadcast unlike anything else currently available. Both in price, as well as product.
To some it might seem expensive. To others “sticker shock” might be more appropriate. However, to those who know and understand true value? It will be seen as a bargain unavailable anywhere else. That’s the goal, only time will tell, but that’s “the bar” as they say, I’m setting, or shooting for. More details on that also as we work through the roll out.
There’s a lot too say and they’ll be more over the coming weeks, but I wanted to make this announcement, on this day, because of the U.S. presidential inauguration. Again: For if we are indeed going to “get back to work?” I wanted to be right there at the forefront because – it is business that needs to lead the way. Regardless of political leanings.
I am all about business, not politics, and what I believe is missing is precisely that: true, real, pragmatic insights, focused squarely on business. In my opinion today’s “business” shows are anything but.
Business, and more precisely: capitalism, true capitalism, is what has fueled the American Dream since its beginning. If there’s no business – there’s no jobs, no economy, no dreams, no nothing. Period. Again – regardless of your political leanings.
Trust me, I’m not the first to ever understand this principle. And for proof, here’s a quote from none other than Napoleon Hill which I keep prominent on my desk. It reads…
“It may well be that the Science of Personal Achievement will become a strong factor in neutralizing the cancerous evil known as communism, which now threatens the liberty of all mankind.” -Napoleon Hill “Grow Rich With Peace Of Mind” 1967.
Think about it.
Once again, to reiterate, the website and more are still in the works, but should be ready within a few weeks or so for roll out. In the meantime StreetCry™ will be posting samples and updates to my blog as deemed appropriate or, as they say, “ready for prime time.”
Before I end, let me also make this one announcement for the “subscribers” to this blog.
As you know I have always stated “there are benefits to being a subscriber.” I’m looking forward to making that statement more concrete over the coming weeks, so please stay tuned and make sure your current subscriber email is up to date.
So to all of you that have been with me since the beginning, or followed this blog over the years (and those who continue to subscribe) let me make very clear: Thank You! And let’s get back to business shall we? Personally, I’m all too eager and ready. I’m hoping you are too – because this mentality – ain’t gonna get it done.
