What I Learned from My 2016 Reader Survey

5 Ways I Can Better Serve You

I’ve been blogging for over four years, and since 2013, I’ve done a reader survey every year. It’s pretty exciting stuff as I receive feedback from you and all my other readers. I’ve learned it’s one of the best ways to get real, useful, and solid information so I can better serve you each and every year. - What I Learned from My 2016 Reader Survey

And just like last year, the number of people who participated in this year’s survey more than doubled. And also similar to last year, the feedback I received is helping guide the path and content that I’ll create this year. A survey is like my own little blog roadmap that will help me get the results the most important people, you, need from my blog.

Help Me Create Content That Serves Your Needs

I’m committed to making things better—in marriages, family relationships, and in all I do. Because this is my commitment, I want to ensure my blog does the best possible job of answering your needs and interests. And that means I need to know more about you. To do that, I’ve created my 2016 Reader Survey. - 2016 Reader Survey

Would you please take a few minutes to fill out the survey? By doing so, you will not only help yourself by helping me create content even more interesting and relevant to you, but you will also be helping countless others.

Receive 5 Exclusive Benefits as Part of the Launch Team

One year ago I was hard at work writing the manuscript for my book, The 7 Rings of Marriage. The manuscript was completed and sent to my publisher around Valentine’s Day. Then for the better part of 2015, I continued to work on this book — editing, reviewing, discussing, recording videos, speaking about it, and more.

Please Take My 2015 Reader Survey

At the end of December, I went through some goal setting exercises with my wife, and also with a few guys in one of my mastermind groups. We used the Best Year Ever goal setting course from my friend, Michael Hyatt.

The exercises in the course gave me the chance to reflect on 2014, while looking ahead to 2015. If I were to compare my 2014 to a movie, I’d say it would fall in the “adventure” genre.

What I Learned from Working with New York Times Best Selling Author Michael Hyatt

My guest post on
September 13, 2014

You get opportunities, and then you get OPPORTUNITIES. I received an email a couple months ago that immediately screamed OPPORTUNITY. It was from the assistant of New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt inviting me to meet him in Nashville to share my blogging and platform building story.

What I learned from working with Michael Hyatt

My story was featured in his video-series, I upgraded my web site, and many other opportunities have come as a result. I’ve learned a lot through it all, and Michael asked me to share these lessons by writing a guest post on his site. That post is live today, and I think it’ll be a blessing and source of encouragment for those who’ve reached a point of being stuck.
