Very exciting news this month: My first iPhone app (“Sales Calls On Fire”) the weekend of March 11th elbowed its way into the #8 position in the App Store Business Category. It’s now steady in the top 200 in the iPhone “business” section and surging here and there popping into the top 100.

This is like watching your book climb in the Amazon rankings. I labored over the app (with superb help from JacApps doing the programming and many beta testers) for many months, whipping it into shape and waiting for the Apples approval to dive into the wonderful new world of app sales that has exploded like five hundred sticks of dynamite .

Is it my ego, or is it me… I don’t know which it could be…

In 1973, I had some friends who started a rock and roll band and wrote the line above for a song with the same title. The line has stuck with me forever. I may be the only person on Earth who has a cassette recording of that song. But it makes a good point.

As far back as I can remember, my parents and teachers tried to teach me over and over again to be humble, to not brag or boast. I didn’t listen. I have been called egotistical, arrogant, and several other unflattering things in my life. I always make it a point to say thank you to the person that does this name-calling. To quote Will Rogers: If you done it, ain’t bragging.

The point I want to make here is that I don’t understand why people won’t tell the world about their accomplishments. It’s not wrong to be proud, if you’ve produced something good! In fact, it’s very positive behavior to tell about your accomplishments. It helps prepare you to try other things in life. For example, when your marketing effort proves successful, then you will be more likely to try something else.

Everybody asks this question at one time or another.

“What’s in it for me?”
