I have to admit I have tried and failed more times than I care to admit. I have tried multiple times to build an online business but somehow life just kept getting in the way. I always had a good reason *ahem* should I say good excuse like I am too busy at work, or I am too tired, or my wife asked me to do something, or I have to help my children with their homework. As you can see I can go on and on with excuses.
I knew what I needed to do but didn't have a plan of action. Of course, I had no one keeping me accountable so the results…nada! zip! zilch!
I feel that I needed someone to put me on the right track. Someone that will lay out the steps I need to take daily in my path to success.
I went out to search for that person. There were plenty of marketers that I respected online, some had coaching programs, some offered mastermind groups, some had one on one mentoring. I have to admit I felt overwhelmed. I know I wanted a mentor but I didn't know who so I kept researching. Hours and hours were spent online trying to find the right mentor. Sound familiar, again I knew what I needed to do but I wasn't taking action.
I made myself a promise. That promise is to take ACTION! Massive ACTION! I stopped researching new programs, looking for my new mentor and just started taking action. This blog is part of that. I also partnered with John Thornhill who is a very well respected marketer. It is time for me to take control of my SOS (shiny object syndrome) and stop looking for the next big thing.
Guess what? It doesn't exist. The only thing that does exist and is guaranteed to work is good old fashioned hard work. That is where I am now.
These are some of the things I am working on and you should see in the coming weeks. I will hopefully have a blog posts and/or videos on all these topics.
It would also be great if you can help me by adding comments to my blog posts. Please no SPAM or obvious promotions. Let me know what you would like me to write about or if there is a specific how to that you would like me to address in a video
That's all for now folks.
