A Personal Story And Struggle...😨
Have you ever been in any of these situations before? 😞
“No one is reading my content that I’ve spent hours to create…”
“No one is buying the products I’ve spent months to create..”
“I’ve lost money with paid advertising…”
‘My competition has a bigger budget, and more resources than me, and therefore I can’t compete…”
“I’ll never get this digital marketing thing to work, everyone else is experiencing success why can’t I?”
If you’ve experienced any of these scenarios, you’re NOT alone.
These are just some of the questions I’ve asked myself and searched for the answers…
There are so many times that I’ve felt stupid, and nearly given up on my dreams.
I felt like a failure spending day after day, I spent hours and hours each day creating content, building products, sending traffic to them. In the end, the results were nothing short of a catastrophic failure!
After spending hundreds of dollars on design work, countless hours of writing, blowing through ad budget dollars, purchasing training courses, and tools, only to end up with broken dreams and in worse financial distress than when I started. I was at the end of my rope, my wife was at the end of hers too.
I remember when I started on this journey, my first success, an email to a warm list of leads and a sale. I was hooked. My second sale a $70,000 piece of real estate form a site that was 3 weeks old. I had no credibility or clout but I made it rain ⛈️⛈️⛈️.
The time and space between those 2 sales were too many days to count. In that time I’ve experienced more set back, struggle and more opposition to success than the average man should ever have to endure 💪.
To be honest, starting all over again after a BIG failure like that IS MUCH HARDER than if you’re NEW to the DIGITAL MARKETING game and everything is NEW…
… there’s no EXPECTATIONS and COMPARISONS
So if you’re NEW to this, then you have a great start…
… but if you’re like me,
I’ve had more failures in business than success, but to be successful you have to be committed to the process. Failure is part of the process. 80% of marketing campaigns fail, you have to be willing to take the risk, not just any risks but calculated ones. Not every idea will be a smashing success.
I’ve had to reinvent myself time, and time again, let’s be honest here; “GETTING STARTED IS HARD. GETTING STARTED OVER AFTER A HUGE FAILURE IS EVEN HARDER. You have previous experience and success to reflect on, past fears to haunt you. You’re not starting from a clean slate with fresh eyes, and you’re not full of optimism.
It took me months to rebuild myself up to a place where I had a slight desire to start again. If you’re like me, and you’ve done something that worked before and now it didn’t… I’ll tell you something that I should have told myself before I tried to rebuild everything back.
TRUST IN THE LEARNING PROCESS…
TRUST IN YOURSELF.
HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOUR PROCESS (If you don’t have one model someone else’s, and make it your own.)
It took me years to muster up the nerve to put myself out there and risk it all once again. I made 2019 the year I chose to relaunch my online business. I started my blog chronicling my journey from start-up to six figures with affiliate marketing. I started on Q4 2019 so this is all brand new. I’m glad you’re here on this journey with me. I’ve never done anything like this before.
I’m going back to my beginning entrepreneurial days, revisiting my failures, positioning myself for success. My goal is to teach others how to build a successful online business, take back control of their lives through entrepreneurship.
Are you going to be one of them?
