How long are you going to think to yourself “I need to give that a shot” before you take the leap and try it?
In this episode we share our own stories about moving on, what we learned, how we did it, and how to do it better.
We also tell, for the first time, a new story about someone near and dear to this podcast. We start the episode with that announcement. Enjoy!

Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn. Have a great day.

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”
A Note From Caleb
Caleb here. I’m writing with mixed emotions today to announce I’ll be leaving Fizzle in a little over a month.
It’s time for the next challenge for me and I’ll be moving on to do the very thing we teach and support at Fizzle (namely, entrepreneurial stuff).
You know those bad high school dating break-ups where you can’t even make eye contact in the hall and all your friends have to choose sides? This IS NOT one of those. I’m moving on with a wonderful relationship with Corbett, Chase and Barrett in tact.
This is simply me being ready for the continuation of my entrepreneurial journey, just like we support you all in that same exact boat every day here at Fizzle. The next chapter starts with me being independent.
I’ll be around for another few weeks (Sep 30 is my last day). And even after that you’ll see me around as I occasionally join the podcast, write for The Sparkline blog, produce/edit videos and chat with you in the forums.
If you have comments, questions, or well wishes about this you can leave a comment below.
I’ll see you there or I’ll see you another time.
The Top 10 Mistakes in Online Business
Every week we talk with entrepreneurs. We talk about what’s working and what isn’t. We talk about successes and failures. We spend time with complete newbies, seasoned veterans, and everything in between.
One topic that comes up over and over again with both groups is mistakes made in starting businesses. Newbies love to learn about mistakes so they can avoid them. Veterans love to talk about what they wish they had known when starting out.
These conversations have been fascinating, so we compiled a list of the 10 mistakes we hear most often into a nifty lil' guide. Get the 10 Most Common Mistakes in Starting an Online Business here »
