I was writing a post today aimed at the many people out there who have their websites completed but are having a hard time getting started with writing blog posts. I was in the process of listing the reasons they might have for not getting them done and then I stopped. I realized that I am actually in a very similar situation. Not about blog posts. I get my posts written but I have find myself stuck on my next step in the same way many of you are.
I have known for a while, that I want and need to package up my knowledge in a information product or an online mastermind group, that lets me get my methodology out to more of you. I have so much information to share with you. I want to hold your hand and offer you the knowledge and support you need to take the steps, that I know will work to get your business off the ground and grow beyond your wildest dreams.
But have I done this? No. I have not. I am still working with you one by one, which I love, but that is not going to get me or you our goals. Oh, I have many excuses:
1. I am too busy.
2. Other people are already doing it.
3. I don’t know what to do first.
4. I don’t know what to name it.
5. I am not sure of the format.
6. Did I mention I am too busy?
7. I am afraid no one will want it.
8. I don’t want to deal with launching and selling it.
9. I am afraid to put it out there.
I could go on. And you can see that all of those things are actually just fear and procrastination. It is so much obfuscating dribble. Really, I have a responsibility to take this next step. It is a lot to expect that you can get everything you need to build your business from a random lot of blog posts or meetups. Yes, it is possible. If you are persistent you can do it eventually. I did. I had no idea where to get help back when I started so I did it but it took a lot of time and so much trial and error. I sure don’t want you to have to go through that on your own.
Everyday, I help people get their gigs together. We figure out their business name, their branding, their logo their websites, what are the best things to go in a sidebar, how to do the e-mail opt-in and what to send to their people as a newsletter, how often should they do it? We discuss how to make a social media plan to fit their businesses and just how do you get started with Twitter? And when is Facebook a better option for a particular business? But not everyone has access to or the resources to spend on meeting with me in person. I am ready to figure out a way to be there for more of you. I need to get off it and take my next step.
I would like your support, ideas and feedback. How can I best help you reach your goals?
