Where to get started with Location Independence?
I'm the type of person that when I get a new idea or a new project I'm running at a million miles an hour straight away. Getting stuck into projects and working really hard is where I'm always strongest, but the real question I always get stuck with is, where do I start?
Usually, it goes one of two ways.
Clarity – I find exactly what I’m after straight away and work towards it.
Insanity – I get so drawn into figuring out what I’m going to do, I get sidetracked with a million and one other problems.
So when I decided to buy the Paradise pack and take the first step towards this new challenge I had a decision to make.
SMART Goals you say?
I’ve talked briefly in a few other posts about setting SMART goals, but I think it’ll be beneficial to go into a little more detail to help any of you who are considering starting your own remote business, lifestyle business, blog. To be honest, once I figured out how to use SMART goals I even started using them in my day to day life! (Who doesn’t love setting up goals for your laundry, right?)
Last week I talked to you all about the importance of building a great first impression with your readers and how in a short space of time you can either invite your reader in to learn more, or have them bounce back out and move onto the next web page (You can catch up on that post here).
They say that true Sales are in your genetics…
My dad lovingly refers to Sales as ‘the gift of the gab’. If you’re unlucky enough to have ever been at a family function and have a family member who’s been a moderate success in the world of Sales, you’ll no doubt know how the story goes…
It goes something along the lines of your Auntie throwing out loose terms about your cousin who sells used cars part-time such as, “Our Robert is a true salesman; he could sell ice to Eskimos!” (I always wondered how difficult it would be to actually accomplish this!)
So I’m sitting here with my laptop open; I’ve bought the domain, setup WordPress, come up with a name, designed a logo and I’m now ready to go (at least that’s what all the other ‘set up your own blog’ posts advised me to do.)
So now what?
Well now I need a game plan.
In my last blog post, I explained my motivation for wanting to leave my job and ‘Get Jobless.’ Now the real challenge for me is sticking with the cause and making the dream a reality. See, for me, my real struggle always comes whenever I see something new or want to start something fresh and I have buckets loads of motivation! I fly headfirst in and spend hours and hours on whatever it is I’m focusing on, but then my mind wanders and it gets left behind. A quick google of ‘disorders related to starting something but never finishing’ may give some insight but I think thats an avenue I’d rather not explore!
