"I am not there yet, but I am closer than I was yesterday..."

I joined this forum less than 6 months ago and this post is specifically for other newbies who are browsing this forum.

There are on only 2 things that you have to do in order to be successful in using this wonderful place.

  1. Read
  2. Take Action

Seriously. That is all there is to it.

No matter what questions you have, no matter what problems you are facing, there is someone on this forum who have already been there & conquered it.

Examples

I read this thread, by @Sean Marshall, and I TOOK ACTION starting my own company in a few days. He literally gave all the steps that I needed to get started.

I read this thread by @EarlOfChina, and I TOOK ACTION to test the concept. The results were incredible! 1 Closed Deal, 1 White Label Partnership & 3 more warm leads from the first 12 videos that I sent out. It's been so successful that I am going to be expanding it to be a focal point of my efforts.

I read this thread by @UnrealCreative, and I TOOK ACTION that very same night. Seems like a crazy idea to look for clients on Craigslist right? I spent 45 minutes and sent simple emails to a bunch of people all over the country. One of the businesses replied back asking for a website audit & what did I do? I sent them a video in the same format as above and BAM! He said it was "amazing" and I have a sales call with a perfect client from New York City on Friday.

I read this thread by @Johnny boy and I TOOK ACTION. Results are coming.

I read this thread by @AllenCrawley and I TOOK ACTION. My email marketing has never been better.

I have read many threads by @Andy Black and I AM TAKING ACTION to learn Google Adwords and I already have an Adwords client lined up thanks to my processes outlined above.

Read. TAKE ACTION. Fail often, and don't stop.

That is all you have to do.

Thanks Kyle!

Not just for newbies but everyone needs a reminder sometimes as to why we're here. I know I just did...

Number 2. Might as well tell some to go jump off the Empire States Building. I have seen it happen. People read and study, but can't make that extra step to start number 2. It is like they freeze up. Frozen in the tracks of entrepreneurship time. They begin to have too many negative what ifs steam roll through their head. What if it doesn't work. What if I fail. What if I hurt someone. And they forget about what if I change people's lives. What if I grow exactly where I need to be?

Reading is one thing. Number 2 is just a whole different animal. Maybe we have it backwards? Maybe people should just do Number 2 then read Number 1 later to get help on how to fine tune? :clench:

There's a constipation joke in here somewhere.

I'm sure it'll come out eventually...

Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.

Wow, surprised this didn't get much traction despite its clear message, coupled with a roadmap of threads.

Marked NOTABLE plus REP+.

Thank you to everyone! Excited to have my first Notable thread.

More Tips for Forum Newbies:

Learn to use this forum as a tool and not an escape!
My first few months here I would procrastinate just by reading dozens of different threads on here.

While this forum is an incredible resource, you need to learn that your time is even more valuable.

Here is how I recommend using this forum as a tool:


1) Don't read every single thread! Find threads that are relevant to your current struggles and read those ones thoroughly.

Example: Even after I started my digital marketing business, I spent 10+ hours reading about E-Commerce. Am I planning on starting an E-commerce business anytime soon? Hell No. I was just spending time on the forum because I didn't want to be doing the stuff that made me uncomfortable. The stuff that would actually move the needle for my business!


2) Participate! Rather than sitting there and praying that someone in a thread would answer a question that you have, just friggin ask it. Being an entrepreneur is about being a problem solver and the longer time that you spend being stuck & twiddling your thumbs, the longer you are going to spend in the slow lane.


3) Document your journey. You don't have to post your picture. You don't have to give your real name. You don't have to tell us your niche. But you should tell us about your struggles and accomplishments! The power of accountability is a HUGE motivation tool. Document your journey and share it with this community because we all want you to succeed. That's what this community is all about.

Maybe someone reading about your journey will stop you from making a disastrous mistake?

Maybe someone will have comments that lead you to a life-altering epiphany?

You will never know unless you put your journey out there!


4) Strive for the Gold. Once you are documenting your journey, focus 100% on going for the GOLD. Use your thread as motivation and create a business that is LEGENDARY. Leave your mark on this incredible forum and join the Fastlane while doing it.

Create a legacy that future forum newbies will spend hours & hours reading.

Once you do that the circle will be complete!

Probably because the title isn't something like "How I made $17,483 in 90 minutes--while watching TV".
Stay tuned. That will be my next thread ;)

That seems to be a good strategy! Reminds me of the book, "Ready, Fire, Aim!" by Michael Masterson

Thank you, sir! It is a true honor. I read a lot of books but I can honestly say that yours has been the most life altering for me.

I can't express how grateful I am to have found this forum.

Awesome and a rightly deserved NOTABLE from MJ.

Why are so many people stilted when it comes to action? Fear? Fear of what? Failure? Not doing anything is failing! As Alfred said to a young master Wayne, "why do we fail down?...so we can pick ourselves up again." OR something like that, it's been a while.

I closed a $600/month deal today using this method! As I said, the results are coming!

Learn from the forum & Take Action!
