The Latino Edge is On the Move
Anyone who knows me knows that I am always up to something (big cheesy smile), whether it's writing for The Latino Edge or in collaboration with other projects. In these hard economic times, I believe in order to be successful, a person has to know how to roll with the changes. We live in an era where global markets change at an alarming rate. Once solid industry giants like GM and Chrysler have taken fantastic falls from great heights. Thousands have lost their jobs, pensions and homes. Peripheral companies have been forced to close their doors indefinitely.
What does that mean for folks like you and me? In plain language, we have to seriously assess our resources and create new personal strategies if we want to stay ahead of the herd. That's exactly what I did.
The Latino Edge made a bold and exciting step forward. TLE has partnered with the extremely brilliant graphic artist and published author E. Frencci Rivera to bring you the hot and spicy slice of Latino humor called Legal Aliens.
My articles are being featured in the very influential online Christian writers' guild, FaithWriters.com. I have received numerous email and phone calls from around the world, as far as India and Romania. In fact, one pastor wrote that he used one of my articles as a basis for a few of his sermons. He has extended an open invitation to speak at his church whenever I am in town (thank You, Jesus!).
In addition, requests for interviews, several invaluable conversations and even a whisper of a book deal have followed.
Here's the icing on the cake... as early as next Tuesday, I am meeting with the host of the political/variety show, "Off the Kuf" to discuss Latino issues in depth and to develop a website with live streaming audio and video - the next step in reaching the global community. We have the blessing of underwriters and the fans are already "chompin' at the bit". This very well may be the next "big thing" of radio talk show!
Certainly, the Latino market remains untapped and underestimated. Nevertheless, that will change in the years to come.
If this appeals to you - and it should- I strongly suggest you check out my good friend, master Internet marketing guru, Ed Dale. He has tons of professional and relevant information on how you too can survive this ghastly economic meltdown... and it's free.
You may be asking, "Yeah this is all good but are you making money?" You bet. I refuse to waste my time on losing propositions. Neither should you.
Be encouraged, my friends. The best is yet to come.
Let's get to work!
