“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
― Calvin Coolidge
Did you know you could collect email addresses via the Facebook timeline? I had no idea.
Mixergy fan, Thomas Kjeldgaard created SplashPost and gave me early access to his Facebook time tool that expands the kind of embeds you can add to your Facebook timeline. Here’s a screenshot of one of the things it can do, and the stats I got from my first test.

From Inc magazine’s article on Jamail Larkins:
At 14, he petitioned the Federal Aviation Administration to get an exemption to fly solo before his 16th birthday. When the agency wouldn’t budge, he wrote to more than 100 companies asking them to sponsor his trip to Canada, where the age limit was a few years younger.
I read that while researching Jamail for an upcoming Mixergy interview.
Digg’s new owners say that the Digg effect is back. I don’t see much traffic from them on Mixergy.com, but I see Digg often in my Clicky stats.
From Wed, Feb 6 at 5pm:
What makes Pipedrive so amazing is that it forces me to organize company’s goals into a series of steps and work together to achieve those steps. For example, to book a guest on Mixergy, we go through 8 steps that include finding the guest’s contact info (step 3) and pre-interviewing them (step 6).
You can read the case study of how Mixergy uses Pipedrive to book guests.
If you go to Pipedrive‘s pricing page, you’ll see my “celebrity endorsement” ;)
Looks like others are complaining about this issue.
