Entrevista con Andrea Rodríguez Rojas, autora del blog de www.viajeroemprendedor.com


Andrea Rodríguez RojasHubo un día en que Andrea Rodríguez Rojas dijo: “No, esta noche, paso”. Y mientras sus amigos se divertían en la noche de ese viernes, Andrea se apoderó de su teclado para no soltarlo más. Y se dio cuenta de que estaba viviendo su sueño.

Con esa pasión y con ese convencimiento para lanzarse de una buena vez sobre esa idea que le rondaba la cabeza desde hacía más de seis meses, Andrea lanzó su blog www.viajeroemprendedor.com, y desde entonces de lo único que se lamenta es de “no haber empezado antes”.

Asegura que tras darle “vueltas por mucho tiempo” a la idea, hoy se siente “feliz”, y no duda en “pasar horas trabajando en este proyecto”. Incluso comenta que cuando está regresando de un viaje lo único que quiere es llegar a su casa “a escribir un artículo” que se le “acababa de ocurrir”.

Viajero Emprendedor, según lo define su autora, es un espacio para inspirar emprendedores a lograr sus sueños y vivir su estilo de vida ideal.  Andrea asegura que en sus entradas se puede encontrar “inspiración para lograr tus sueños, herramientas para encontrar tu pasión en la vida, y aquello que no te enseñan en la escuela: ¿Cómo ser feliz y exitoso?”.

En una interesante apuesta, su blog se nutre de entrevistas con emprendedores exitosos, herramientas para lograr libertad en la  vida, tips para aportar mucho más valor a los clientes, inspiración y motivación.

 

Un blog Part-time

Andrea tiene 23 años, vive en México DF, soltera y sin hijos, trabaja como consultora de pequeñas y medianas empresas, por eso su dedicación al blog es “por ahora” de tiempo parcial y desde su casa.

Ella sostiene que su principal motivación es “inspirar a otros a lograr una vida de libertad y sueños cumplidos”. Cree que la mayor forma de realización de una persona es “poder despertar y decidir en qué vas a ocupar tu día; saber que las horas que dedicas a generar un ingreso, son horas en las que llevas a cabo tu pasión y que además ayudas a muchas personas a tener una mejor vida”.

Ésa era precisamente la idea que le rondaba por la cabeza. Pero le faltaba el empujón para decidirse, sobre todo luego de leer muchísimos blogs en castellano y darse cuenta de “cuánto le falta al mercado hispano por crecer”.

Objetivo: ayudar a los emprendedores a arrancar su aventura >>>    Leer más “Entrevista con Andrea Rodríguez Rojas, autora del blog de www.viajeroemprendedor.com”

How to Blog Like Bond. James Bond.

When it comes to being a badass, few can hold a candle to good old 007.

Calm, cool, and collected under pressure, Bond is known as much for his seductive personality as he is for his incredible ability to get himself out of any situation in one piece.

What he isn’t known for is writing a successful blog.

But everyone’s favorite fictional, womanizing secret agent has more to do with writing killer copy and running a great site than you might think.

Here a few things you can learn about great blogging from everyone’s favorite snappy dresser/sex addict/paid assassin.
Know exactly who you are

From the specific type of drink he orders (martini, shaken not stirred) to the unique presence he commands when walking into a room, James Bond always knows exactly who he is (yes, I realize I sound like an American Idol judge, but it remains true).

When you’re dealing with James Bond, you know what you’re going to get. If you’re a psychopathic villain bent on world domination, you don’t want to find out that Bond is on your case because you’re most likely going to end up dead.
Readers should know exactly who you are within minutes of coming to your site.

* When you visit Copyblogger, you know you’re going to learn how to write great content that builds both your business and your reputation.
* When you visit The Art of Nonconformity, you expect a point of view that challenges the status quo. You also learn very quickly that author Chris Guillebeau has made it his mission to visit every country in the world.
* When you visit Man Vs Debt.com, you know you’re getting a guy trying to destroy his debt.
* Spend three minutes on any of Gary Vaynerchuk’s sites and you feel like you’ve known the guy for years.

Your reader should know not only who you are but also what you’re providing within just a few lines.

It took me nine months of writing every day before I finally found the right “voice” and felt confident enough to use it. Once I finally embraced my personality and injected it into each post, my site really caught on with new readers and became much more enjoyable for me to write.

99 Excuses For NOT Making Ideas Happen

There’s an old Yiddish proverb that goes, “If you don’t want to do something, one excuse is as good as another.” In other words, if you’re NOT doing something, what does it matter why? We recently polled our friends on Twitter for a list of the most common excuses for NOT making ideas happen. Not surprisingly, the response was overwhelming. We can all make a list of excuses as long as our arm for why we’re not taking action.

So what’s the point of us listing them out here? Reason No. 1: To face facts. If we recognize the patterns we fall into, we can change them. Reason No. 2: To invalidate them. As an antidote to inaction, we’ve provided a counter-argument for each excuse. Don’t commiserate, instigate!
