Panic at the Border: How Corbett Barr Got Started (FS003)

Do you wonder how you’ll ever actually do the things you dream about? In this episode Corbett Barr shares how he made the transition from dreaming to doing.

It wasn’t easy for him (wait till the bit about his panic at the Mexican border) but it completely changed his path, expanding his perspective about where he wanted to go with his career (and life).

If you’ve been a reader of Think Traffic for a while you already know Corbett. But in this episode you’ll discover what started the journey from a burnt out consultant to an electrified, successful and celebrated blogger and business builder.

We also answer a couple of colorful listener questions (thanks Dave & Jeff!) that lead to Chase’s 5 website design tips and Caleb’s killer Santa Claus metaphor.
