Spoke with Jody Maberry yesterday – New Year’s Eve – and confirmed our “If Disney Ran Your Life” podcast will launch January 25, 2019.

Why then?

January 25, 1982 is my original Disney hire date.

Seems fitting to start a “Disney” podcast on the same day that i started a Disney career.

Could This Change Your Life?

Stop putting pressure on yourself to do too much too soon

Gloria Steinem quote about truth
Truth, it hurts and it liberates.

 

Stop putting pressure on yourself to do too much too soon.

Sure, you promised junglejeff.com goes live tomorrow, July 4th. And this is the third deadline you have created: June 8 your birthday, and June 25 your anniversary have come and gone. Now, July 4th.

Why?

Because you didn’t feel it represented your best foot forward. It is, after all, a Disney Keynote Speaker website.

We all struggle with feeling confident enough to launch without perfection.

Really hoping to be blown away

Really hoping to be blown away.

Spending a lot of money and placing a ton of trust in someone i’ve never directly worked with before.

How do you feel certain the person you’ve contracted is not squandering their time, effort, and attention on your project?

You don’t.

Well, you find out when the project is done.

And then, if you’re blown away, then you’ll know.

And if you aren’t blown away…

If Disney Ran Your Life

At Disney we call these “Cast Member Previews”

Disney speaker jeff noel new website
Prelude. Yesterday was my first look at my new Disney Speaker website (first draft).

 

At Disney we call these “Cast Member Previews”.

That’s when things are almost ready for the public, but not quite.

After Cast Preview Days, next is what we call soft-opening. This is unannounced admission into the new venue. It’s not scheduled or advertised to the public. Only the Cast know about it. The Guests are surprised and delighted to be able to “test” the experience.

It is often a highlight of their stay because they never saw it coming. Not many Guests get to participate in soft-opening.

Deep breath…may i (unofficially) present to you…

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
Look over there…it’s, it’s…it’s a new website..

 

Deep breath…may i (unofficially) present to you…

junglejeff.com

Spoiler alert because you may have never realized, this site you’re reading now is junglejeff.net 

Using GoDaddy’s handy domain name backorder feature (for many years) the previous owner abandoned it in early 2016.

Was quite shocked to purchase it.

Yee-haw!

Having a dot.com is a better piece of digital real estate than any other.

Location, location, location.

Domain extension, domain extension, domain extension.

PS. Today’s (June 9) reveal (rough draft form) is known only to a handful of people. However, by the the time this posts it will be polished up: .simple .corporate .different
