My latest commitment

My latest commitment

This Spring, I wanted to restart my blog, but I had so many tasks to finish. I know what you think. Excuses! Yes, they are, indeed. I simply didn’t follow through. 

After joining Quick Start Challenge 2018, I decided to make another promise to myself. It often helped me in the past when I wrote it and announced publicly, so I think this post will serve the purpose.

Yesterday, when I wrote the post what I did in the past year, I realized how much I missed my business and marketing blog. In my other businesses, I talk about astrology, personal development, and personal finances.

Whenever I tell something business and marketing related, people write to me and ask me why I changed the topic. Many advised me to stick to the main subjects and don’t bother them with business. On the other hand, I love to talk about business. I’ve been an entrepreneur since 1990 and still love it.

Facebook groups

Honestly, I don’t spend much time on Facebook. I joined several groups, but one of my favorites is the iPro Partners Facebook group because I always find something interesting there. Dean Holland and his team share new tips every day. They really want us to succeed online.

My problem is I have nothing to say there. People in the group are willing to talk about business and marketing, but it’s a closed group dedicated to affiliate marketing. I can’t share there my days and takeaways from my other businesses. By writing this blog, I already feel I belong to the group again.

Big commitment

When you work online, you are in the lonely place. People are reading your blog posts (or not), send you Facebook friendship requests and want to talk to you on messenger. It’s a great thing, but as much important is to connect with like-minded people who inspire you and give you feedback on your efforts.

So, the obvious solution is to write my blog more often. Today, I decided to more often share about my days or what I do in my business. For the next 90 days, I will update my website, write more blog posts or work on backend at least five days per week. After that, I will review if it still brings me so much joy or I should turn it into something else.  

I hope you will visit my blog, read my posts and learn something from me because I love to share and help others to create a happy and prosperous life.

I would love to hear what you think. Please, take a minute and write a comment of encouragement.

    Can you tell something nice to encourage me to stick to my plans? Thank you so much! 🙂

    Hi Irena. We’ve made contact before and swapped a few things. I know exactly what you are talking about. About 3 months ago I was invited to join a group where I got to know quite a few people. I joined about 6 groups who were already within the main group I joined. What I found was that I got completely bogged down in the engagement of all these groups who were posting the same posts throughout the 6 groups. Answering these people just wore me down. I see this every day and I’m actually going to cull most of these groups as I believe that they haven’t actually progressed at all. I’ve narrowed my products down to 3 things now. A payday system, Deans program (I just love his daily energy) and a lead system which even though the other two systems mentioned, an independant lead system is always handy. I believe that there are “gurus” out there who just want to be the leader of a large group with some, but not all the answers to marketing online. The question you’ve got to ask yourself, is why did you get online in the first place? Overwhelmingly, what I’ve been told, is to make money and how quickly will I see a return. That’s why I got online and I suspect you also. I’m trying to get back what I lost in a bad business decision. That’s my WHY. I doon’t want to, nor do I have the time, to do some “goody two shoes feeling” course. We all know that there is or will end up with a monetary input as well as a time period to get a momentum up and running. But when you brush aside all the noise that this business crteates, there are systems out there that are simple, straight forward, legitimate, automated and have a history. I think everyone of us will go through a period where we have to take a step backwards and realise maybe we’ve been taken for a ride and to just go back to the simplicity of things.

      Indrek, thank you so much for your comment. Yes, I remember you from the iPro Partners group. You always share something valuable with us. I can totally relate to your experience with the FB groups. There is one more: Neurogym group that is very active and I love to join it sometimes. For other groups, I feel like you do. I come and go and most of my time I don’t see my interaction worth of my time.

      When you suspect why I’m online, you’re wrong. 🙂 I simply LOVE the internet and the freedom it gives me. My first chats online started in 1998 or 1999. (I really don’t remember anymore). I’m not here just for the money. Yes, I put affiliate links in blog posts and post some banners on my website because I would like to help people shorten their way to profitable business online.

      The main reason that motivates me is to help people and connect with those who feel they would like to know more about my journey and can trust me. (In the past I made so many mistakes, so I’m aware I need to earn that trust) 🙂

      The second reason is selfish. English is not my native language but I’d like to stick with it. I’m aware my English is not as good as it should be to write those posts but writing regularly will help me to get better and better.

      I’m not the most successful person in the world and I don’t want to be one of them. I love to enjoy my simple life. 🙂 With my other businesses, I earn enough to cover my needs. Affiliate commissions give me an opportunity to pay for new knowledge, hire best mentors, use best tools and share with my audience what I’ve learned so far.

      You say you made a bad business decision. As long as you learned something from it, it’s OK. I bet you didn’t make even a percentage of my bad business decisions. 🙂 Look at them as teachers and the most important life lessons. They give you wisdom and opportunities to make it right this time. I’m positive you can make it happen and wish you best luck in your business journey.
