Online Success Cast #12: Bob “the Teacher” Jenkins
I'm back with another interview! 🙂 This week, my guest is Bob “the Teacher” Jenkins – another friend of mine, and successful online business owner making a difference.
The audio recording of our interview is at the end of this blog post. Just look for the “play” button and listen. It’s free!
I met Bob at a Live Event earlier this year (Willie Crawford's 50th Birthday Celebration) and then we got the chance to hang out again at Ken McArthur's IMPACT event in Orlando a month or two later.
See? Here we are!

I knew that I liked Bob immediately, even before we were introduced. I noticed his warm smile and I wanted to meet him, even before I realized how flippin' smart he was, too. He just stands out in a room full of people as someone who is really special.
Also, every time I walked by him, at the event, I noticed that he was typing notes in a weird program. It turns out that he's a Free Mind addict and he's helped me to learn about the program and use it, too. It's great for brainstorming ebooks before you start writing them, and for thinking through projects that involve a lot of steps.

-> Free Mind Training (You'll get rid of post-it notes forever.)
So, anyway, I finally got an introduction and I knew my life would be better off for knowing this new friend.

I really appreciated Bob’s explanation and your conversation of ways to use Roboform. I had looked at Roboform in the past and thought “Why the heck do I need that, I have a pretty good memory for passwords.” Now I see why I need that! 😉
