    Yes, you read that right. As you might imagine, this is a bitter sweet event for obvious reasons ...

    Firstly, let's just acknowledge that this hasn't been a great return on time or money invested. (Obviously) However, I'm still happy that this represents a milestone based on a couple of simple points ...

    1. I discovered this strategy 20 years ago, was impressed but not of the right mindset to execute in my late teens. I rediscovered the strategy a few years ago and decided to follow through.

    2. I have in the past failed on projects due to a lack of focus and commitment, when I started this I committed ... no retreat, no surrender. This is why I'm happy with closing a deal, I can put hand on heart and say that I overcame the lack of commitment and focus that killed previous projects. I have spoken to several others operating the same model and I'm always complemented on my persistence.

    3. It has been really hard ! I know we all get deep into the hustle and suffer to make things work but I have had a marathon of ups and downs with this so I can step back and really say that the commitment has seen me through and helped me grow ... there is a clear benefit to this aside from just the money.

    4. I have actually discovered some gaps in the industry I operate that could be effectively systemised and productised, the standard advice of 'repeat what works' does stand true here but after my journey so far I am obsessed with creating a new platform to support this industry.

    That's it for now, I'll do another thread with the details of my journey when I get time. Thanks for reading
