Okay, here we are again.
The End of another week.
Only, this week was more awesome than the week before. It wasn’t perfect, though, but it was definitely “awesomer” than the week before.
Along with the realization that hit me about underestimating difficulty level last week, this week I realized if I want to get better at my craft (blogging, online business consulting, SEO, and the rest of my other crafts), I had to take the game to another level.
So I talked it over with myself and decided I would be blogging every day from now on.
Yes. Every day.
And if you’ve followed me so far, over this week, I have literally been pumping out content every day like a machine.
I even wrote a post about becoming a Content Making Machine. And I’ve been getting views that have been way better than what I’d been getting prior to posting every day.
It’s been tough. I’m not gonna lie. But the results speak for themselves.
I didn’t get to work on my ecommerce biz tho. That was one of the drawbacks this week, but it’s part of the sauce that makes the soup sweet so I accept it as is. I’m definitely going to make some moves on it this coming week.
Any way, without any more “senrenre”, I’m gonna give y’all a few highlights and lessons I learned this week:
#1: I’m sorta signed up to Steve Harris’ email newsletter and this week, I read a story about a lady who took his Master the Business of Your Talent Course, and how she turned her life around.
From a pack of indomie and some chicken change in her pocket to making REAL CASH MONEY!
What struck me was the fact that at the time she decided she was going to take the course, she didn’t have a way to pay for the course.
Either way, she got off her ass, went into the streets and got clients for her fitness business and made it happen.
No Stories or “senrenre”.
That challenged the hell outta me. And I’m up off my ass right now, and I’ve got about 6 prospects for a crash course in online business.
Nice one abi 😀
#2: Yesterday, I was watching Steve Harris’ live video… the #AskSteve #DriveTimeChallenge where he was dropping nuggets of wisdom.
I asked a question and he gave me a response that rearranged the way I was thinking about my business. And gave me a new way to approach my hustle.
If you must know, the question was “How do I become a business consultant?”.
And Steve emphasized the importance of a hands on approach over attempting to digest all books ever written on business.
#3: Last night, I sorta got into one of those slumps.. You know, those ones where you’re trying to figure out some thing and it’s just proving too difficult..
So there I was, feeling frustrated.
I didn’t know how to get past it. I took a 3 hr nap, and then I got a call to go see the Patient on admission (Yeah, I’m running a day job and dream job hybrid right now). I attended to the patient, then came back and got back on the hustle.
I ended up figuring out some other things I had been cracking my skull to figure out for a year.
That was awesome.
Now, my lessons for this week:
#1: Frustration pushes you forward if you let it.
#2: When you have the will, you will find the way.
#3: Chip away at the mission, every day, come rain or hailstone.
#4: Commit to doing whatever it takes. Like, really commit to achieving your goals, regardless of how difficult it may get, and you’re more likely to succeed.
And I think that’s done, for this week. Next week, I’m going to go in on that ecommerce site so I’m gonna let y’all know how that goes.
Did you learn anything new this week? Put it in the comments section… Make we yarn.
