“Covel, Why Are You Not on CNBC All of the Time?”

Seth Godin writes:

Media volatility makes more people and more ideas famous for ever shorter periods of time. What the fine art market shows us, though, is that real value isn’t created by this volatile fame. Consistently showing up on the radar of the right audience is more highly prized than reaching the masses, once then done. This works for every career, even if you’ve never touched a brush.

My work, my creativity, my thought–is driven around reaching the right people–not necessarily the masses.

Think about what drives the masses.

But: “Covel, Why Are You Not on CNBC All of the Time?”

  1. Haha..I about spit out my drink.  So true about the Kim Kardashian thing.  I think your point came out quite nicely.

  2. The other way of looking at is: You give out your advice to people who PAY for it (via books, blog subscriptions, dvds whatever) why is it on you to explain why you’re not on television, competing in a red ocean of noise and idiots to give it away for FREE more often? 

  3. Thanks for the feedback Ryan. One day we have to sit down…I know you bring fresh eyes.

  4. No Mike, please no porn from you, keep working those podcasts only 🙂
    The day you have 14M twitter followers, I’ll be really upset, that will clearly mean you’re doing something wrong.

  5. On Friday 5-4-12 Becky Quick said. “The market can’t be timed” on CNBC  They really aren’t interested in having market timers or trend followers on their show.  I am sure my article “Buy and Hold Is Dead” guarantees that I will never appear on CNBC  I like to deal with the small audience that “Get’s It”.  Most investors do not get it when it comes to trend following or market timing.  And that’s a good thing.  Let’s not encourage too many people to get into our game.
