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.

  1. Hi Leslie,

    Congratulations on your great accomplishment of completing the challenge 🙂

    Yes, as you mentioned, one challenge ends but the real one has now begun, to implement all that you’ve learnt and make sure you follow it all up. But I am sure with all the support and help, it will be possible for you. Just take small steps – doing one thing at a time so you don’t get too overwhelmed with it all.

    Thanks for sharing, and wishing you the best. Have a nice weekend 🙂

    1. Thanks Harleena! Happy Mother’s Day to you!

      You are correct, small steady steps. Getting overwhelmed is the killer of momentum for sure.


  2. Laslie,

    I like your site.

    What do you think is most crucial to your long term strategy/success? Curious to hear your answer. 🙂


    1. Rob, steady consistent action that will impact my bottom line.

      In my case, that includes keeping my focus on getting traffic to my blog and building a list.

      Which for me means knowing why I’m doing this so when I lose focus or momentum, I can review “my why” and get myself back on track.

      Thanks for visiting.


  3. Hi Leslie,

    Your blog is looking very nice. I agree, keeping up a steady pace will be the next challenge, but I think you are off to a strong start and on the right track.

    It’s been a fun journey. I wish you much luck and success.

    1. Thanks Teri! QRS has been fun and the community is strong so that will be what I rely on when I have lapses.

      Good luck to you too!


  4. Hi Leslie,

    Ahh…the quick start has ended and now it’s time to roll up your sleeves and have some fun! Consistency is the key.
    Update your blog and give some good information i.e. whatever you have learned…share. Even if it may seem insignificant to you, someone will find value in it. That’s the trick lol.
    I see you have your ducks in a row with your opt in box on your right side of your blog. That is the best way to start your list.
    Get out there on social media too and start engaging.
    You will be surprised how fast things will grow!
    Wishing you all the best,

    1. Hey Donna,
      That is the key is realizing what you know may be helpful to others.

      I think we down play our knowledge and think we don’t know anything. Or who wants to hear what we have to say. When really there are a lot of people who could learn from our experiences and knowledge.

      Social media is a little bit tougher nut to crack for me. I either waste time there or get overwhelmed and am not sure which to attack, when and how.

      All things I’m sure I’ll figure out in time. Thanks for stopping by.


  5. Congratulations Leslie and now it’s time to go to work.

    I did something similar a few years ago but it was actually a course I was going through. What I found though was that not many people who had enrolled actually did the work but the few who did, and trust me you couldn’t even count them on one hand, we killed it.

    It’s the consistent action that you need to take in order to get any type of traction.

    I agree with Donna because I shared what I was learning, what I was doing and then sharing my results and people were impressed. Oftentimes I’ll get asked “how did you do that” when I had been sharing every single thing I had been doing but they were just either too lazy or scared to move forward.

    I think you can help a lot of people through what you’re doing so I say go for it girl, you’ll do great and sounds like you have a lot of support with your group too. I wish you the very best.

    1. Thank you Adrienne!I still struggle with the consistent action, but I’m getting better each day.

      And it’s still weird to wrap my head around that I can help people. I want to, but sometimes I think I’ve done so little what do I have to offer.

      I need to remember everyone started off at this point.

      Thanks for the well wishes.


  6. Hi Lesliez: As others have commented: attractive blog site,and wonderful posts, AND how the hard work continues. Glad to hear that you have a coach for the next period of time. I decided that Dean did so well for us, I needed to continue with him: look at the steps defined, and go at it, one step at a time. The best to you!! Anne

    1. Hey Anne,
      Thanks for stopping by!

      Yeah, Dean is a great coach. I’m lucky to have worked with and still be working with great coaches. The interesting thing is that they both basically teach the same thing…create a blog, drive traffic, build a list. They just put their own twist on it.

      Good luck to you Anne.


  7. Hi, You’ve put together a great blog here, intersting and informative. I like the way you have explained each step of the QSC, and that you’re not afraid of presenting video’s!
    I look forward to keeping up with your future progress
    Regards Brian Butler

    1. Oh Brian, I still have hesitation with creating videos. I just am trying not to obsess about it or try and make it perfect.

      Just do it! It might not be perfect, but I’ll learn something and realize along the way that it wasn’t as scary as I first thought 😉


  8. Hi Leslie,

    Congratulations on finishing the challenge. You’re absolutely correct that the real challenge lies ahead. I decided to join Dean’s coaching program to keep from flailing aimlessly. So far, so good. I’m really looking forward to progressing through that program next.

    Best of luck to you moving forward.

    1. Congratulation to you also on completing the QSC. It’s great that you’ve taken yourself to the next level with coaching.

      But even with coaching of any kind, you are the one who has to believe in you and make it happen. Stop flailing, start focusing.

      Focus makes it easier to see success because you become less overwhelmed and you don’t spend every other second looking for the next great thing that will make you successful.
