Today is New Year’s Eve. Last time, we suggested how you can put your cocktail napkin to good use this evening. Now we want to share what we learned about Bigg Success this year.

Biggest surprise
We understand that, when you launch an internet business, you’ll get hits from all over the world. However, we were surprised at the proportion of our audience that is international. We love it! Here are the top five countries coming to Bigg Success:

#5 – India

#4 – United Kingdom

#3 – Canada

#2 – Australia

#1 – United States

Tell your friends about Bigg Success. We’d like to see your country be on our list, or moving up on the list, next year.

Our favorites
We shared our personal favorites from this year. Mary-Lynn loved our interview with Santa Claus. He shared some tips for staying jolly. And … he taught us how to belly laugh.

George’s favorite was the John Bramblitt story. This young man went blind a couple years ago and then discovered … painting! Imagine that – a blind painter! He’s an inspiration to all of us.

Some things we found funny
Mary-Lynn is a veteran broadcaster. George isn’t. When we were setting up The Bigg Success Studio, Mary-Lynn told George he needed a “p-filter.” George was worried about that until he learned that it was just a device to stop his p’s (as in the letter) from popping.

There were words we rejected at Bigg Success. As you’ve probably learned, we like all things to be “Bigg” – with two g’s of course. We use the “bigg” reference whenever we can. Probably even to excess! But here are some times that we rejected “bigg”:

  • We decided not to call our favorite movies “bigg picks.”
  • We decided not to use the phrase “bigg tips.” We were worried we wouldn’t enunciate clearly enough!
  • Finally, we decided not to call the subscribers to our newsletter “bigg members!” The word “members” alone worked just fine!

Along those lines, when we signed up for iTunes, we noticed that a lot of shows like ours abbreviate their show name. We thought we might find it hard to draw a crowd to a success show called …

The B.S. Show!

Finally, we chose our favorite blooper of the year. George won! He’s just thrilled. We can’t do it justice in print; listen to our show and hear it yourself! It’s worth it!

Click on the play button above (just click the arrow), or, if you are viewing this in a reader, just click the mp3 button. You’ll enjoy seven minutes of entertaining conversation, and as a bonus at the very beginning, hear about something “bigg” that George DOESN’T want to hear from Mary-Lynn!

On a more serious note, our bigg quote today is by journalist and author Edward Payson Powell.

“The Old Year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead.
The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time.
All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months!”

Don’t let your New Year’s resolutions go in one year and out the other. Make this year your year – for all the bigg success you know you can achieve!

Next time, for New Year’s Day, we’ll ask, “How will you define success this year?” We have a Bigg Tool (that one made the cut … barely) that will help you with your goals! Until then, here’s to your bigg success!

    Mary-Lynn and George: congrats on a great start! So many people say, “I’m going to start a blog” — you guys not only launched one, but did it with a clear vision and, more importantly, useful content.

    Wishing you Bigg Success in 2008!
