Whoehooo... exited to start on the blog design!!!
CS 003 Create the Blog and setting up the contracts

Hey everybody, 

this is Marcel Martens and welcome back to the Cloud Secrets Podcast. 

Today, I’m really excited because today I’m going to make a start on this blog for our podcast. I’ve also set up some appointments with the legal department and our lawyers for setting up the contracts and the things we need to prepare for launching our Cloud Secrets project and be able to make sure that our laws are applied on any sales we do outside of the Netherlands. So busy day.

I’ve uploaded the last two podcasts to

That is what I use for transcribing all my texts, and this weekend I didn’t have any time to record it, but I also made the first two blog articles, because is absolutely amazing. If you upload a transcription like this one I’m going to upload to them, you get it back within a few hours, nearly flawless, and you only pay one dollar a minute or something for all your minutes to transcribe your audio into text. It’s absolutely amazing for that low price.

It’s not even possible for me. Well, I tried it once, with another podcast, to transcribe it myself. It cost me over an hour for just the 20-minute text, so when you all put it into balance, it’s way cheaper just to let somebody else do it, so you can keep pushing and keep your momentum and keep going forward.

Keep moving forward and keep momentum

So now I’m on my way to the office, where I’ll first have the meeting for the contracts for the course, and afterwards I will be continuing on our blog, so I’ll keep you posted. 

Thanks for being here and watch us. If you want to follow me along and join my journey onwards, creating Cloud Secrets and eventually launch it, you can follow me at @Cloud.secrets at Instagram.

  1. I think what you published was very reasonable. But, what about this?
    what if you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t
    good., but what if you added a post title to maybe grab a person’s attention? I
    mean CS 3: Create The Blog And Setting Up
    The Contracts – Cloud Secrets is kinda vanilla.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article titles to
    get viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    • Hi,
      Thank you for your feedback! I’ll take it under consideration.
      I needed to launch 3 episodes to submit my podcast to Itunes so they aren’t completely finished yet…

    more useful than ever before.

      Nice! thanks so much for the feedback! I’ll hope it helps you and your spouse to go next level!

  11. My best business tip is to focus on the prototype. Don’t focus on your pitch deck, business plan or financial projections.”
    If you get a prototype out and you get enough people using it, you never have to write a business plan, do a forecast or do anything like that. A prototype is where you separate the BS from the reality.”

  12. Start now, you don’t need funding. Watch out for when you want to do something big, but say you can’t until you raise money to fund the idea. It usually means you’re more in love with the idea of being big than with actually doing something useful.”
    For an idea to get big, it has to be something useful–and being useful doesn’t need funding. If you want to be useful, you can always start right now with just 1% of what you have in your grand vision. It’ll be a humble prototype of your grand vision, but you’ll be in the game. You’ll be ahead of the rest because you actually started, when others waited for the finish line to magically appear at the starting line.” Read this post from Derek for much more.

    • Exactly! Take the first step and get momentum!
      That’s where this blog, and my course by the way, is all about. Become a successful Cloud Service Provider without investing any money 💪

  13. The easiest way to tell if someone is a first-time entrepreneur is when they’re secretive about their ideas. I don’t reply to people who ask me to sign an NDA. Real entrepreneurs know good ideas are cheap and that success comes from hard work, not a stroke of genius.”
    The other big mistake I see entrepreneurs make is building a product for a customer they don’t know well. That’s why I always advise entrepreneurs to build a product for themselves–at least that way you ensure you’ve built something for a user you know intimately. All of the great tech companies of the past decade–Facebook, Twitter, Slack, Snapchat–were built by founders who were making products they wanted to use.”

  14. They wait to get started. They wait until they have more information, more experience, more, more money, and a more perfect version of whatever they have created.”
    All that waiting means they’re not really learning. When you’re an entrepreneur, the best way to learn is to do something, to put your idea into someone’s hands, or to talk to the people you want to serve. Stop waiting and do… something.”

  15. Scratch your own itch. Go after solving a problem that you have. Something that’s near and dear to you, not some random market opportunity.”
    Often new entrepreneurs wait too long to put their product out in the market. With limited resources at hand, its crucial that you get an MVP out ASAP and start getting traction. Take the user’s feedback to iterate and improve your products.”

  17. Not launching fast enough is a mistake you simply can’t afford to make. If you want to get an edge over others, launch now!”
    The most painful mistake I see inexperienced entrepreneurs make is copying or doing the same things that successful entrepreneurs have done, expecting similar results. What first-time entrepreneurs don’t realize is that the world is not a vacuum and there’s more going on behind the scenes than it appears. There’s much more effort that has gone into creating the success they see on the surface, and there’s no guarantee that a particular tactic or strategy will be successful for everyone.”

  18. I loved as much as you’ll receive carried out right here.

    The sketch is tasteful, your authored material stylish.
    nonetheless, you command get bought an shakiness over that you wish be delivering the following.
