I learned that the hard way. Do the things you love and only do the things you love and tell the people that you love that you love them and make time to go see people. I'm excited about the country opening backup and my ability to go see friends and family that I have not seen for a long time. I think as entrepreneurs and as startup, folks, we forget that. But make that happen. Make it happen. Because at the end of the day, it's the only thing that matters and don't have any regrets.

Tom Kulzer Founder/CEO of AWeber
On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Tom Kulzer Founder and CEO of AWeber CavnessHR Social Media cavnessHR website: https://www.cavnessHR.com Jason’s email: jasoncavness@cavnessHR.com @cavnessHR across social media @jasoncavnessHR across social media We talk about the following What is spam What do people get wrong about following up What is the definition of small business AWeber Tom’s Bio Tom Kulzer is founder and Chief Executive Officer at AWeber, the leading email marketing and automation platform for small businesses, where he is actively involved in the company's strategic direction, growth and evolution. Over the company's 20+ year history, Tom has nurtured AWeber from a small start-up to a robust organization, that has enabled over 1 million customers to grow their businesses, all without public or venture funding. Tom laid the foundation for AWeber while working at a computer hardware firm in the mid 1990s, where he realized sales prospects were falling through the cracks due to lack of proper follow up. By automating the delivery of personalized follow up emails to prospects, company-wide sales skyrocketed, and sales associates had additional time to spend pursuing new prospects.

Go to the link below https://www.aweber.com/free-t2.htm Tom’s Advice I would say just get started do something. Whatever that thing is that you've had on your to do list. That you've been anxious about and not wanting to get started. Just put something out there. Because once it's out there, you kind of get over that inertia and you'll start the ball rolling. So really, whether it's starting a newsletter or starting a business, just do something, get it out in the world. So you can start getting feedback and the rest will kind of go from there. But until you get started, you're not going to get any results and you're not going to get any feedback. So just move things forward.
