Follow your passion and heart. Success will follow.

I’m Greg Goodman
dad • artist •
husband • entrepreneur

I can trace the journey of my adult life into three distinct eras. All of them are chronicled on this website.

Photographic Storyteller

For a decade, my wife and I bounced between traveling, living abroad, moving home, working, saving, and doing it all again.

Along the way, I shared photos and stories from our adventures — simply because it made me and other people happy.

That approach to life attracted success – culminating in a National Geographic TV show about my life as a travel blogger.

Business Owner

As a kid sitting at grandpa’s old wooden desk, I dreamed of being a “businessman.” Today, I run a one-man marketing and web design agency that helps small business owners SOAR.

Goodman Creatives allows Carrie and me to own a home, take care of our kids, and live the life of our dreams. And, it keeps me chained to a desk.

Paradigm Shifter

Today, I’m combining these worlds to create a new reality. A reality that’s free of financial shackles. A place where we can all follow our hearts and find success.

I also dedicate myself to radical honesty on social media, giving voice to the internal struggles we all face — but seldom talk of.

A Journey Awaits

Adventures of a GoodMan is the graphic novel of my life and the next chapter is still being written.

5 Common Marketing Mistakes and how to fix them⁣

Marketing comes in all shapes and sizes. ⁣

So do common marketing mistakes! ⁣
» Paid ads⁣
» Organic FB marketing⁣
» Websites⁣
» Google⁣
» SEO⁣
» Personal branding⁣
» Funnels⁣
...... the list goes on. ⁣

Most business owners understand that marketing is an essential part of growing their business. ⁣

However, those same business owners often express frustration at previous marketing failures.A⁣

s the owner of a digital marketing agency, I've heard so many stories about failed marketing.⁣

From those, I came up with a list of 5 must-know tips for successfully promoting your business.⁣

1. Don't invest in marketing until you have clarity on your dream client and niche ⁣

2. Don't spend your whole marketing budget on a website -- leave enough for paid ads⁣

3. Don't try to manage Google Ads and SEO yourself - let an expert get the results you need⁣

4. Don't talk about yourself until your dream client knows you understand THEM⁣

5. Don't choose more marketing channels than you can keep up with⁣

I get really excited about a lot of things.⁣

Most recently, I was regaling my mom with all the reasons why I LOVE my new online educational platform.⁣

In addition to leveling-up my business world, it's helped me go SO deep internally. ⁣

I've only been a part of it for the past few months -- and it's the best thing I've done for my personal growth since spending a month in the Amazon doing plant medicine in 2014.⁣

It's been epic, to say the least.⁣

And, true to form, my mom replied with a simple, yet incredibly powerful bit of advice ...⁣

In the middle of all the excitement, just remember to breathe.⁣

So wise, mom. So wise!⁣

Thank you thank you thank you mom, for being you!⁣

Love you!⁣

Happy Monday! ⁣

What are you going to accomplish this week?
...

After an uncomfortable night sleeping in our rental car, Carrie and I resumed our drive down the Oregon coast just after sunrise.⁣

With the early-morning light shining through the trees of Highway 101, she spotted a turnoff and pulled in so I could snap a photo.⁣

We never could have imagined the stunning sight that awaited us…⁣

Sometimes it pays to get up early!⁣

(photo taken during a 2013 road trip down the Oregon coast)
...

We have more than 60,000 thoughts each day⁣
90% of them are repeats.⁣

Stale patterns.⁣

Outdated beliefs.⁣

Broken records.⁣

Shame. Guilt. Fear.⁣

Planning. Remembering. Dreaming.⁣

Loving. Laughing. Singing.⁣

54,000 times a day.⁣

What thoughts are you ready to release?
...

It was 7am and we were still exhausted. ⁣

In the past hour, I had asked my wife, Carrie, to stop our car several times so I could hop out and snap a photo.⁣

This time, I decided not to ask.⁣

That’s when Carrie said, “Greg, I can’t believe we’re not pulling over…”⁣

So we did and I snapped this shot. ⁣

Thanks, darling, for continuing to be my patient and loving inspiration!⁣

Share your elevator pitch in the comments. 👇⁣

Here’s mine — or at least, today’s version. ⁣

It’s an eternal work in progress. ⁣

I help online business owners get more sales without being salesy by creating an authentic, ethical, kickass personal brand that stands out in a busy online crowd. ⁣

I do this through 1-1 coaching, traditional web design and marketing (at my digital agency), and with an affiliate/network marketing-based online learning platform/community full conscious entrepreneurs who are dedicated to personal growth as a path to making the world a better place.⁣

>> Unforgettable.⁣
>>> A once in a lifetime experience.⁣
>>>> Like scuba diving beneath a school of fiery lanterns.⁣

Think of Yi Peng as a cleansing of the soul.⁣

Every year in Northern Thailand (Lanna), thousands of people gather together for a mass lantern release on the Lanna Dhutanka temple grounds in Chiang Mai.⁣

Yi Peng literally translates to “second month,” which is when the festival falls on the traditional Lanna calendar.⁣

Before the mass lantern release at Lanna Dhutanka, the Yi Peng festival’s activities include group prayers, meditation, monk procession, and Buddhist ceremony.⁣

Then, it's time for the main event ...⁣

Sending up a sky lantern is a release of all your negative emotions, anger, worries, troubles, grudges, bad feelings, and misbehavior.⁣

First, write your hopes, dreams, wishes, or a personal messages on a rice paper lantern.⁣

Then, join thousands of people in releasing these fiery lanterns into the night sky.⁣

The resulting sea of flickering light is simultaneously powerful, beautiful, wondrous, and magical.⁣

When was the last time you went for a hike in nature? ...

Remember the sound of dial-up?⁣

Remember animated gifs bouncing around the screen?⁣

And …⁣

Waiting foreeeeeever for pages to load?⁣

And …⁣

Using thick, printed directory books to find website URLs because Google didn’t exist?⁣

And …⁣

Feeling awestruck every time you typed in www.⁣

And …⁣

The joy of looking at anything online because you had never seen anything like it before?⁣

And …⁣

Geocities, AngelFire, Compuserve, Prodigy, Lycos, Ask Jeeves, and …⁣

WELCOME⁣
YOU’VE GOT MAIL!⁣

The year was 1996.⁣

I was a junior in high school.⁣

Computers were my thing, so I took a coding class as an elective.⁣

That’s where I fell in love with HTML (Hypertext Markup Language).⁣

I did my coding by hand in Notepad.⁣

Netscape was my browser.⁣

AOL was my ISP.⁣

I was hooked for life.⁣

Thanks, June Idzal! 🙏⁣

My final project was a James Bond website.⁣

It’s still online today - universalexports.net⁣

In the years since I’ve created dozens of websites for fun and for pay.⁣

Most are long gone.⁣

Some never even saw the light of day.⁣

However, there are two extra-special websites that continuously fuel my personal and professional growth.⁣

1. AdventuresofaGoodMan.com — My Photographic Storytelling travel blog - which is how I express myself creatively. ⁣

2. GoodmanCreatives.com — my marketing, web design, branding, and coaching agency⁣

Along with Universal Exports, running these sites has helped me keep up with the latest trends in web design and marketing for 25 years.⁣

So there you have it.⁣

That’s my resume.⁣

Ask me anything.
...

Sometimes people don’t have the time to sift through loads of information. ⁣

That lengthy blog post cuts into their time they have with family. ⁣

So in the end, traditional content marketing can become static.⁣

To prevent that from happening, here are a few ways you can integrate interactive marketing into your approach.⁣

» Quizzes⁣

» Interactive Data⁣

» Contests⁣

» Being active on social media⁣

» Email marketing⁣

» Chatbots or live chat⁣

Why Should I Pay More for Web Hosting?⁣

It’s a good question — and one we get a lot here at Goodman Creatives. ⁣

The short answer is that cheap web hosting can slow down your website, leave you vulnerable to hackers and malware, and potentially drive customers away. ⁣

Think of it this way,⁣

If you just bought a Ferrari, would you put sand in the gas tank?!⁣

On one hand, you don’t want to blindly go out and spend big bucks on top-of-the-line options that you’ll never use or understand. ⁣

On the other hand, having this technology in place can make a big difference behind the scenes … even if you never know it’s there. ⁣

Does this feel right? ⁣

Is my content truly authentic or secretly self-serving? ⁣

Can a relationship be genuine if the person might be a lead? ⁣

To consciously create a personal brand, we must continuously ask ourselves the tough questions.⁣

There’s a fine balance between your self-promotion and the value you share with the world. ⁣

Keeping the scale tipped to the side of “giving back” is essential to having a personal brand that people relate to and want to support.

Google searches for Online Therapy, Teletherapy, Virtual Therapy, and Video Therapy have been on the rise since the early days of COVID-19.⁣

Part of the reason for this uptick in intakes is the fact that you can promote online therapy services to your entire state, not just your local geographical area. ⁣

Here's what Google had to say:⁣

"Online Therapy“ — gets between 10k – 100k searches each month.⁣

If you’re using Google Ads, you will pay between $7 – $18 to get your result on Page 1.⁣

There is high competition for this keyword.⁣

Teletherapy — gets between 10k – 100k searches each month.⁣

If you’re using Google Ads, you will pay between $2 – $11 to get your result on Page 1.⁣

There is medium competition for this keyword.⁣

Video Therapy — gets between 1k – 10k searches each month.⁣

If you’re using Google Ads, you will pay between $4 – $11 to get your result on Page 1.⁣

There is medium competition for this keyword.⁣

Virtual Therapy — gets between 1k – 10k searches each month.⁣

If you’re using Google Ads, you will pay between $5 – $9 to get your result on Page 1.⁣

There is high competition for this keyword.⁣

What does your dream life look like?⁣

Strip away all the details. ⁣

No stuff or locations. ⁣

I follow my heart,⁣
Share my passions, and⁣
Success follows me.⁣

What do you miss most about travel?

Personally, I always love long transportation rides.

A chance to see the natural ebbs and flows of local life.

Villages.
Countrysides.
Cities.
Landscapes.

People get on.
People get off.

Food vendors come on.
I eat something yummy.

On to the next stop.

“There’s never enough time”

Sound familiar?

Most people tell themselves that daily.

I certainly do.

And what does that lead to?

Nothing good!

» Overwhelm.
» Stress.
» Anxiety.
» Frustration.
» Anger.

These are the results of “there’s never enough time.”

Here’s the thing …

😱 IT’S ALL A HUGE LIE!!!

“There’s never enough time” is a limiting belief — a construct of the human brain — a vicious cycle and a broken record.

There’s ALWAYS enough time.

The question is, what do we do with it?

As human beings with free will, we get to CHOOSE what we do in every moment.

Anything can be a distraction, if we let it.

🚀 Elon Musk once said:

“””“You have enough time.
168 Hours/week

40 at work
+ 7 at gym
+ 56 sleeping
= 65 HOURS LEFT!

Stop wasting, start doing.”“””

Granted, this is an oversimplification by a man who probably has no idea what “normal life” is like.

It assumes that we all work 8 hour days, exercise daily, and get a solid 8 hours of sleep every night.

It doesn’t include transportation, eating, getting dressed, pooping, family time, relationships …

And, regardless of Elon’s math, here’s a fact.

🌈 At any moment, you can change your reality.

When those old, familiar feelings come up - you can choose to go down the same old rabbit hole.

Or, you can choose to take a breath, feel it fully, and move on with your day.

Choose how to spend your time, and accept the consequences of those decisions.

That’s my goal these days.

I’m done being stuck in this cycle.

It gets me nowhere … fast.

🦋IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE 🦋

Yesterday, I woke up with that same old feeling.

“So much to do today! Aaaaaahhhh!”

However, instead of jumping right onto the computer, I took 15 minutes to meditate.

Then, in the middle of the day, I left my desk and got a network chiropractic healing … for 90 minutes!

What a gift to my self.

Last night, I chose to go to my Men’s Group instead of spending the night in front of a screen.

Granted, I was up until 2am finishing some things up …

And, it was totally worth it!

We all deserve a life free of “never enough time.”

💣 It’s time to break the cycle. 💣

Whose with me?!
