Expedition 206 – What does happiness mean to the world?

If you had the opportunity to find happiness in every region of the world, would you do it?  I would too 🙂

My good friends from around the world are competing for the opportunity to do just that.  The opportunity is called Expedition 206, where the winning team will travel to 206 countries in 1 year and tape, blog, and Tweet about their adventures and the people they meet.

The amazing part is that we get to choose who goes on the trip! Check out my descriptions for the teams below and then decide who you want to vote for.

Merry Christmas: A thank you to those that made 09 awesome!

merry christmas

I find it easiest to write when I’m feeling stressed, angry, unhappy, or frustrated.  I’ve recently been plagued with a string of happiness, making me feel uneasy, as if I don’t deserve it.

By no means have I ‘made it’ yet, but the tunnel was pitch black at so many points this year, and I finally see a dim light at the end of the tunnel.  I feel that this year was ‘the Dip‘ for my team and I, and if we’re able to push through and make it through the last part of the Dip, we could potentially come out of this 2-year tunnel alive and well.

My partial and limited ‘success’ was greatly dependent on some very special people in my life who have been through thick and thin with me.  This Christmas post is a Thank You to each and everyone one of you:

Chance spat on my shoe in 2009.  2010 is the year I take action…

10 Things I Wish I Had Known Before Starting My Own Web Video Series

Jun Loayza

I am very proud to announce that the first season of Living the Startup Life is now complete!  (Yes I know… took quite a while, huh?) Video is becoming more and more powerful, and I have noticed that a lot of entrepreneurs and Gen Y bloggers are starting to use it to add a more transparent, personal element to their blog.

Just some of my favorite Gen Y Vloggers:

I taped Startup Life episodes from Summer 2008 – Winter 2008 and had a blast doing it, but more importantly, I’ve learned the Do’s and Don’ts of creating your own video show.  If I had to start things all over again, I think I would have done things totally differently.  Luckily, I’m taping Startup Life Season 2 starting next week! So I have plenty of time to create a much better show.

My 1-Year Blogging Anniversary

According to my blog, I am officially a 1-year old blogger!  Woohoo!  Looking back on the year, the thing I value most from creating this blog is NOT the money I’ve generated nor is it the press that I’ve gotten; it’s the people that I’ve met along the way that truly makes the experience so worth while.

For my 1-year anniversary, I want to give back with the top 10 lessons I’ve learned since I’ve started blogging.
