Do you feel like people are always trying to sell you something during a training session? What’s the selling all about. Sure people are trying to make a buck but what else is going on. You should watch this.
If you are not improving yourself each and every day with videos, audios or books, then you are missing the boat.
I used to scoff at this “self improvement” and mindset stuff. I didn’t need that. Really?
Every expert you listen to or learn from online will tell you that they read books or do something to continue learning and making themselves better. If they are doing it, why would you scoff at it?
So after rejecting it for years or doing if half way, I jumped in and started reading, listening and watching.
At first I only did it 15 minutes a day. But I wasn’t seeing any real improvement. Then a mentor mentioned I should submerge myself into improving myself. Listen and read for hours a day.
HOURS? I don’t have time for that. That was my initial reaction. But I also believed I needed to get out of my own way and stop making excuses. Here’s some ideas on how you can fit in hours of reading, listening and watching into your day. Read the rest of this entry
Gurus, experts or experienced marketers are constantly giving you advice on what to do to build a successful business. They are giving you this advice based on what they’ve been taught and what worked for them.
Most of the advice is similar with a slight twist on it from whatever marketer/expert is giving the advice. I’d spend wasted time trying to do what the experts would say. Then I’d beat myself up and feel guilty because I couldn’t do what they said.
A few years ago…ok more like 5 years ago, after listening to a training about internet marketing and setting goals, I was pumped up! You know how it is right after you listen or watch a really good training, how you’re ready to take on the world and tell everyone about it… at least for a good hour before reality and doubt set in.
How many times have you come across training that you say to yourself when you’re done going through it “I’m not doing that because it might not work?” or “I heard that doesn’t work anymore?” (And this is assuming you actually go through the training you bought).
You’ve already decided that it’s not going to work WITHOUT taking action and trying it for yourself. Who said it wouldn’t work? If you really are truthful in answering that question, you’ll soon realize that the people saying this or that won’t work are the people who have never done it.Read the rest of this entry
I recently went back through my comments to check on my fellow Quick Start Challenge (QSC) folks to see how they were doing. When I started this blog, I was part of a much bigger community that was starting our online businesses together. There seems to be comfort in crowds. You can read about the QSC in my post A Challenge May Be The Start You’re Looking For.
So, I went back to see how my fellow QSCers were doing and much to my dismay, many of their blogs are either gone or haven’t been updated since the challenge ended or soon there after.
It is very sad that so many dreams were broken for people hoping to make it online. These dreams were broken by a lack of follow through, lack of effort, life getting in the way or just giving into that tiny voice in their head saying “you’ll never be successful”. Whatever happened, it is sad! Read the rest of this entry
There are a few things that can drive me crazy and comment spam is one of them. But if you’re going to have a blog then you are going to have spam. You just have to figure out how to deal with it.
A few months ago I read about a product on a blog, http://www.wazzupyo.com, that could STOP SPAM COLD! So I figured I’d give it a try since I was getting several spam comments a day. The best part of this product is that it is FREE and is a WordPress plugin. Excellent! Read the rest of this entry
