For those of you keeping track, we started Kicktastic back in June of 2012. The idea was to take what we learned using the Kick Awesome Show to make more money and have more fun, turn it into a product and sell it. That plan morphed into a subscription based model where we would keep creating content each week, interview other awesome business owners and share the knowledge.
With people paying us each month we really felt obligated to crunch out the content—nearly 100 videos and 50 blog posts in a little over a year. I'm getting tired just thinking about that.
And though we made a bit of money, we just felt like something was missing. After lots of conversations, feedback from people we trust, and some inspiring talks at World Domination Summit 2013, we finally figured it out:
Yes, we know it's been a year since the last Kick Awesome Show. But today we're back! We've got tons of high fives, our favorite spam comment, a cool new shirt and we'll explain where we've been for a whole year!
Here's the cool thing, though - this will be the first time Nate Croft, Jon Longnecker and our new Kicktastic partner Austin Church will be discussing businessy things live on the internet. You will laugh. You will cry. You'll probably never talk to us again. Or you might just fall in love with our weirdness.
But you won't know for sure unless you tune in Friday at 1pm EST.
So! If you want to attend one of the best web conferences around and see some awesome live shows go and get registered for Converge Florida October 4th -5th 2012. Tickets go on sale August 1st for $200. We'll see you there.
You read that one right. Nate and I are bringing the Kick Awesome Showlive to the ConvergeSE folks. If you're in town early (Thursday the 26th) and want to come hang out, watch us be goofy on stage, interview some of the speakers, eat some food, drink some drink, – you know – have some fun – come to the IT-oLogy center at 6:00pm.
The ShopTalk show is a live podcast by CSS Tricks/Wufoo master Chris Coyier and Paravel pointman Dave Rupert. Chances are we'll talk about the Kick Awesome Show and maybe even this new website! Send in your questions now or join us live to pick our brains.
As 2011 draws to a close we continue the tradition of short, lame Christmas shows.Scary sing-a-longs, Italian Christmas Mobsters and or course - Christmas Tic Tac Toe. Merry Christmas Kick Awesome Friends!
Watch what happens when we try to do a whole episode in one take with no editing! We talk about making web apps in Lion, Mutemath’s remixing contest, CSS text shadows, Losttype, and our picks from DesignersMusic. Whew!
This week we’re bringing you Assets from Pixel & Tonic, Dropp app, and phasers! Yes, the Star Trek kind! Our music picks will rock you like old people on the front porch, and Jon does some interpretive mime.
