Hey friends! Today’s episode is a sort-of response to a question I saw in a Facebook Group a few weeks back.
There was a person who was asking the group whether it was viable to start a blog today. Whether they should even bother when the market is already saturated.
I’m not gonna lie, this question annoyed me. Actually, the attitude behind the question is what annoyed me. So I wanted to take a moment to share more thoughts in this video!
I believe there are two definitive types of people who get into blogging and want to start their online businesses.
The first group are the people who genuinely want to make it happen. They are the go-getters. They are reading about all the strategies, learning, up-skilling and acquiring all the tools they need. And every now and then they need reassurance, definitely, who doesn’t?
But then there’s this second group who want everything for nothing. They wanna be told over and over that it’s possible, they wanna be guaranteed that they’re gonna make a shitload of money with a months worth of effort. And they’re not really willing to put in all the work that’s needed once they find out how hard it can be.
The person who asked the question was clearly in the second group, and so I had to respond!
1. There’s no secret strategy
This guy wanted to know the secret strategy to making $5000 dollars a month. And I said to him, “Look dude, there’s no secret strategy. You have to work at it. You have to test stuff out find out what works, stick with it if it does, if it doesn’t drop it and find your groove. There isn’t some magic thing that’s gonna propel you to make this money, you’ve just gotta do the work. And it’s hard work!”
2. You gotta do the work!
You can create courses, digital products, you could create an ebook, you could do services like design or coaching. You could have physical products, you could import physical products. You could sell affiliate products. There’s just so many avenues you can go down. But if you’re not willing to do the work, you ain’t gonna make the money! But if you ARE willing to do the work, even in a saturated market, I believe that you CAN make the lifestyle of your dreams out of this. I think you can create the income you really want from this. You just gotta to the work!
3. We got your back!
But thank goodness there are other entrepreneurs like myself and my friends McKinzie, Meera, Ana and Jennifer who are here to help you. So why don’t we do that. Why don’t we focus on growth and progress and let’s get us to making our dreams come true that way.
Did you think business would be easier or more difficult? Be honest and let us know!
P.S – Please excuse the overexposed lighting in the video. It was afternoon and I was feeling in the moment!
