It’s been a while since my last blog post. Personally, I suspect that I’ve fallen into some manner of time vortex! How else could it have got to be May? Wasn’t Easter only yesterday? Seriously though, real life seems to get in the way a lot and what with my rather prolific talent for procrastination, I’ve maybe been squeezing a good 5 minutes work out of every day…
This has to stop! It has to stop now!
Undercover Resource Genie didn’t sell as well as I’d hoped, although I suspect that was mainly down to my complete and utter failure to appreciate that I the recruitment of affiliates before launch is paramount to success. I know that now, and at the time I really wanted to get my first product out there because I was afraid that if I didn’t, I would keep it in a dark corner of my laptop forever.
Don’t get me wrong. It was hardly a flop, feedback was good, no refunds. Plus I still feel that if I could get it out to a wider audience, it would be of great value to a lot of people. Maybe I’ll relaunch it one day J Overall, it was a great learning experience and it took me way out of my comfort zone at times, so I feel I’ve grown as a person.
However, having initially had problems coming up with a follow-up product, I’ve been going through a period of self doubt that has held me like a rabbit in headlights, paralysed by indecision and finding it hard to move ahead for fear of getting squished, wondering whether I just don’t have what it takes to succeed… From what I’ve heard, a lot of internet marketers and probably most business owners go through something similar.
I’ve seen my peers in Dean Holland’s Inner Circle coaching selling hundreds of copies of their WSOs and making a ton of money. Whilst it’s encouraging to see that this make money online thing really can be done, it’s made me doubt my own ability a little…
In my doubt, I’ve allowed myself to get a little distracted by Shiny Object Syndrome. Not a terminal case, but enough to put me off my stride and skew my focus. There have been times when I felt like giving up, but I’m a stubborn bugger and hate to admit defeat, so that will never happen.
So here I am, doing something positive in the last half hour or so before my husband gets home for the bank holiday weekend and trusting that this will be the catalyst I need to get moving again.
I already have several ideas for products to create and although I have a few problems with the logistics of how to get the first one created, I’m going to forge ahead with it.
– No more being afraid that my product won’t offer value
– No more procrastination
– No more shiny things. Ever.
I’m going to the Warrior Gathering in London next weekend. My first live event. And I’m really looking forward to it. That should also serve to kiss my arse into gear too.
Despite everything, I know that I have what it takes to succeed online and that is what I intend to prove now!
