I know I know. I have been dormant for the past few months. So I am going to give you an update on what I am up to lately.
Alright, to be frank, I was inspired to start this blog back in Sep 2013 after hearing about Dean Holland’s success story. It was after I attended a webinar conducted by Alex Jeffrey.
Alex talked about how Dean was $60,000 in debt when he first met him. So the first thing Alex told Dean to do is to start a blog and that was what Dean did. Fast forward to today, Dean went from $60,000 in debt to having an online business that generate 7 figure a year. Dean has also become a well respected coach and mentor himself having helped many people become a full time Internet Marketer.
When I first started this website, I actually wanted to blog at least once per week about my IM journey. But somehow, I got distracted again due to the shiny object syndrome, which I believe many internet marketers are suffering from.
I know I have to get myself back on track again if I am ever going to hit my goal of $10,000 per month online. So when I first heard about Dean Holland’s Quick Start Challenge 2.0 in April 2014, I decided to join.
From what I know, the first Quick Start Challenge in 2013 was a huge success. Many people have went on to become a full time Internet marketer since the first challenge. This year challenge is going to be better since we are going to have 3 coaches. Other than Dean Holland himself, we also have Craig Crawford and JF Garsula, who are both successful marketers in their own rights.
Basically, in this program, Dean is going to show us exactly how he got started online. He will show us a proven plan to start an online business. I will share more with you as I go through the next few weeks of the challenge.
Right now, I have just been through the first week of the challenge. The very first assignment that Dean has given us is to start a blog and write a blog post. And so here is what I am doing.
I know this may not seem significant but Dean reminded us that his sucess started from his very first blog post.
Here are the 6 lessons that I learn from the very first challenge.
1. No matter how busy you are, you have to make time for your business. At the very minimum, you should commit at least 1 hour per day.
2. You need to have a plan so you know exactly what you need to do when you are in front of the computer. This is what I am going to learn from the Quick Start Challenge.
3. You don’t have to be an expert to start blogging. Just be yourself and share your journey with others. Don’t try to fake it until you make it. When people see that you are real, they are more likely to connect with you. That was how Dean got started on his path to success.
4. Don’t hesitate to ask for help when you need it. Don’t be afraid to ask questions so that you know you are on the right track.
5. You need to take that very first step if you want to be successful, even if it is a very small step, such as writing your first blog post.
6. Just do what your mentor tells you to do even if you can’t see the purpose of doing so. For example, when Alex Jeffrey told Dean Holland to write his first blog post, Dean didn’t even know how it is going to help him make money online. But Dean did it anyway. And now, he is a phenomenal success.
I will be sharing my results and what I learn from Quick Start Challenge over the next few weeks. Hopefully, you will find it helpful to learn from my mistakes and successes.
