BUILD AN ONLINE BUSINESS
IN A YEAR CHALLENGE
LEVELING THE FIELD FOR NEW ONLINE BUSINESSES
About This Challenge
I am just one guy who had always dreamed of sacking my boss. It was always my favourite topic with colleagues:
'So, what are your plans for the future?'
There would be one of three possible responses:
1. They had never contemplated a world outside the company they worked for.
2. They would have dreams for their own business.
3. Or they would have actual plans in progress for their own business.
The first group i didn't know what to do with so I kinda left them in peace to their sleep-walking :)
The second group i could pass the time with and inspire them to run with those dreams.
The third group made my job just about as enjoyable as it ever could be with the conversations we would have.
So which group do you fall into? If the first group I assume you are at work now, working your routine, working for a good annual evaluation, working for a promotion, wondering if there will be a 2% pay-rise this year, wondering if the boss will grant you those two weeks holiday you requested. Whoever you are, i know you are not here reading this but I salute you. Our country and economy will always need you.
But you are here, reading this so you, dear visitor, are either the group two or group three person. If group two, i hope the one year build an online business challenge will inspire you, and remove many of those objections your inner voice has been coming out with over time - or at least give you options for.
Group three, your business model may be much different to mine but the core building blocks will still be the same so there is a ton here for you to discover and learn during the course of this year. Check out the 50 formulas book you get when you sign up for reports, you will find a lot to help you here too.
So, what is the business model?
My business model is Digital programs. More specifically, I have a mission to create five foundational programs that take the person from shyness and social anxiety to becoming the ultimate, wealthy, confident, fulfilled human.
For twenty + years I have been training to fulfill this role, with ten years spent creating my materials and intellectual property. Perhaps this path is the hardest one to get started on, (especially if you are a perfectionist and want your material to be innovating and world leading). Naturally, you need not create all your own products from scratch - Check your free 50 formulas eBook to discover all the options ;)
So here it is, I have lots of material in various stages of development, the first signature program (Wordshy) is already complete and available, as are a number of my books, but this is where the real journey begins.
Any aspiring authors out there, sorry but that's the gut punching reality, spend years crafting a beautiful book and you wont get a single sale - well you will learn what it takes to do so throughout the course of this challenge - if you stay around.
There are a seemingly endless amount of components needed to build your online empire and i made the classic mistake of trying to learn them all and do them all (at the same time) all that happens is overwhelm and inertia - especially when you are doing it in the evenings after a full day shift at work.
But somehow, even-though i was not blessed with heart-melting good looks, i was gifted a relentless determination to keep pushing forward no matter how many roadblocks and punches life throws my way. Think of that Rocky quote - 'Life aint all sunshine and rainbows...' quote, but don't think of Rocky picking himself up off the canvas after the latest heavy blow from Creed or Drago, think of me instead :) cos I got the face that looks like it took the blows too.
What you will get out of this?
So right now this online build a business challenge is an evolving project, but what you can expect as a minimum is this:
1. A breakdown of every marketing strategy i use (and i know many)
2. Details of all the tools and force multipliers i use
3. The mental strategies i use to keep motivated
4. Daily summary reports detailing activities done, time breakdowns, strategies
There will no doubt be much more to come if this idea takes off (such as live-streams), if i get some real support and feedback about what you would like from me etc.
But consider the 50 formulas eBook as my first bribe to get you behind me (these come from the many and best business books i have read over the years) I have simply had the foresight to document them as i came across them, then compile them into the eBook you can access for free.
What Qualifies me?
I read all the business books and went to the seminars, bought and completed the marketing courses. I learnt NLP, Hypnotherapy, and became a master of memory techniques. I wrote books and became an author, Did presentation courses, did presentations.
In fact, i am the ultimate victim of the shiny penny syndrome, forever learning the latest, or must know strategy, and never really deploying. I am a walking talking resource that is so ready to take action that i quit my day job of twenty years to do so. If I had waited any longer for the moment i would be ready, this challenge would never be taking place.
But it is, I quit without any savings but still with all the monthly bills to pay, so i am highly motivated and ready to pop.
This is a unique opportunity for me and perhaps for you too because while many books will try to sell you the shiny penny of being able to build your own business in half an hour (or some such crazy unrealistic empty promise) I am offering you the unique chance to see it done under the harsh glare of reality.
At the very least, you can think of it as a business reality show that you can interact with, or just watch from afar. You can learn a little or a lot about what to do and what not to do, strategies and software to use and not to use. And if it all turns into a metaphorical car crash you will see that too (but that wouldn't be entertaining at all)
Well I think I have said it all for now, so I hope you are intrigued enough to sign up for the ride. I'm certainly curious to know what will happen, but lets agree one thing, if you are as like-minded as me about having your own online business or laptop lifestyle, then there is everything to be gained by following my progress, and nothing to be lost.
