Don’t Fall Into The Gap

Dan Sullivan  Avoid the GapIn the US, Memorial Day is all about looking back at those people in the military who have sacrificed to give us our freedom.  It’s about being thankful for not only those from the past but also those in our present.

In our lives we need to not only focus on our future goals but look at our past accomplishments.  Focus on how far you’ve come and what you’ve accomplished thus far.  Stop the continual feelings of failure by looking at how far you are from your goals.  We all spend too much time downplaying our skills, what we have to offer others and what we have accomplished.

SEO Sucks! But I’m Good With That

NoSEOI have tried a million different times (ok, so that is a slight exaggeration) to get my websites, blog posts and videos ranked using SEO.  My latest attempt was my Google Hangout for The Quick Start Challenge.  And yes, once again I failed to achieve any ranking…not just on the first page or two, but anywhere.  I can’t find my video anywhere.

An “expert” explained in their webinar that Google Hangouts were EASY to rank, even with the hardest, most competitive keywords.  Afterall, it is Google’s own property so they should give priority to Google Hangouts.  Seemed to make sense…

He explained how to do it.

1. Create your Hangout and schedule it for the future with your keyword in the title and the description. Read the rest of this entry

The BIG Blogging Problems – SOLVED!

newspaperWhen I started my blog there were several questions that I asked as I was getting started.  So I thought if I asked them, then everyone who has started a blog must have also asked these same questions or at least some of them.  That brought me to the writing of this post.

For those of you who are thinking about starting a blog or have just begun your blog, you’ll need the answers to these big blogging problems.  Some you may have already answered yourself or gotten different answers then I offer, but I know you’ll pick up some little tidbit that will help you with your blog.

I also provide several GREAT RESOURCES from other bloggers who go into the answers in either more detail then I do or who have a different take on the question and answer.  Someone told me it makes them feel like they’re back in college with reference material.  But seriously, the links are more exciting then college…ok maybe not, but they are definitely worth checking out!

Challenge Ending…Bigger Challenge Beginning

This week the Quick Start Challenge ended.  Now the bigger challenge will begin.

Continue to do the things Dean taught us in the challenge.  Continue to grow my business. Continue to update my blog.  Continue to get traffic.  Continue to grow my list.  Continue to progress.

But I and my fellow QSC members are not alone!  As we have an awesome Facebook community of very supportive people.  They provide help, encouragement, and someone to bounce ideas off of.

So, many of the pieces are in place for my success.  Not to mention my coaching program with Marc.  All that’s left is for me to stay focused on getting traffic for the next 90 days and building my list.  That is the biggest challenge…taking steady and consistent action. 

As I’ve heard before…this is a marathon, not a sprint.

Leave me comment below about what your biggest challenge is in your business.
