I guess if there’s a secret to my success, it’s not from the last two weeks. It’s from the last two months. April, I determined that I was going to work through my project regardless of the setbacks. Everyday I make progress, as little as it may be, it is still progress.
I work for a few minutes until I hit a road block, then I take whatever time it takes to find the solution, whether it’s two hours or two days. Then, I spend the few minutes (usually seconds) applying it and continuing on until I hit the next.
As you all know, I had my shares of discouragement and frustrations! I just keep believing that I will get through it, and I keep working at it rather than give up and try something ‘easier’.
There is no “easy.” This is all hard work until you learn it and practice it.
Funny thing. As I am writing this, I am watching a webinar on how to build a membership site in 5 minutes. For the last 10 minutes, the host has been struggling to get one step to actually do what it is supposed to do. I doubt the he thinks it’s funny, but I don’t mean laughable, funny. He is saying his file server isn’t responding.
That’s an experienced person having the same problem, live in a webinar! So, just expect that it is part of the cost of doing business. Either take the time to learn and work through it, or hire someone experienced in doing it.
One suggestion I do have, comes from the Bible. In the Old Testament, the children of Israel were instructed to rest on the Sabbath. That was a commandment for THEIR benefit!
If you are pressed and working this business 7 days a week, take a day off! Even secular psychology has now started saying that we are more efficient 6 days a week when we have rested one day than we are working 7 days a week.
I am completely new here and this is the first post I have read. Buck, if this thread is any indication of finding like-mindedness here, I am going to be thrilled.
I am coming from a much different place than you, but can still identify with your position. I have been in business for 26 years, first selling software in my niche (which was highly profitable for the first 15 years or so) and then adding information products and books. Now I find that the software part is just to top-heavy with my labor to go forward with new development.
That leaves re-invention and a transition to
My issue has always been “overwhelm.” There is just too much for one person to do. Sean’s materials have served me well but not in the way many people would think.
I look at his materials from the standpoint that I want to do what he is doing, the way he is doing it.
For those who might be reading this, Sean and I have a small (very positive) history, aside from the fact that I once posted on Warrior Forum that one should just blindly buy everything Sean puts up on day 1. As it turned out, he built new products faster than I could take them in and I simply couldn’t keep up.
LOL Dave, been there, done that! When Sean put up his entire pre-2015 business for sale, I first wished I could afford to buy it. When I looked at what I had, I laughed. I realized that I had already bought everything with either PLR or Resell rights. I spent weeks downloading and organizing it to minimize duplications.
