Biggest Win of the week for me

Last Update: February 20, 2017

As many of you already know I've been hosting the Extra Paycheck Podcast since 2015.

It's been an awesome experience since I get to chat with successful entrepreneurs from different industries. Many of them share great stories, tips and strategies.

Well this week I have reached a milestone, episode #100. This means that I have released a new podcast episodes, consistently, every single Monday for the past 100 weeks.

To celebrate this special episode I've decided to reach out to my role model in online business. Some of you might have heard of him, it's Pat Flynn for the Smart Passive Income.


Since I released the episode I've already had friends and fans sending me messages and asking how I got such a big name on my show.

I think the answer is rather simple: don't be scared to reach out to influencers in your industry. Be creative with your approach.

If I had to take one single tip from that interview and share it with the WA community it would be this: Pat claims that whenever he built a niche website, it would take him about 18 months to really start getting traction. I am not saying it took him 18 months to make a first dollar. However, even though the results seemed insignificant and the work put in felt like a waste of time, it always paid off in the long term.

You can find the link to my podcast in my WA profile. You can also simply Google search: Extra Paycheck Podcast and you'll easily find my show.




Thanks for reading folks, I was very excited to share this milestone with you ;)

To the next 100 episodes ;)

Veronica - he is incredibly down to earth dude. We often put the "successful" or "famous" people on a pedestal when in reality they are normal people just like you and I ;)

Well done Alex congratulations and I really admire your determination.
Thanks for surprising me, I thought the big guys create a site today and in weeks they are making 3 figures minimum.
Reply
AlexSol Premium
Roamy it sure feels like that but it's not true. They might work less because they can pay someone to set up the site and create the content and all of that. However, it will still take a while for the results coming in.

No matter how successful you are or how much knowledge you have - there is still no shortcut to success. It takes time and effort.

Your Extra paycheck podcast has been more than important to my online business journey. i was lucky to find it even before i join WA community, because through the podcast i had already a real picture of how it works and i am doing great right now. Sometimes i even wish you could produce two shows a week. Thanks Alex for the hard work.you really inspire me

AlexSol Premium
Thanks for such kind words Armstrong ;)

It's great to hear that you have found value in the podcast and that's my main reason for doing it. I can't measure how much money I made directly off of the podcast and a lot of people tell me it's a waste of time. But in my opinion, if it's helping people learn something new and get motivated then it certainly is NOT a waste of time ;)

Alex, this is fantastic! I wasn't aware you did a weekly podcast but now that I am, I shall check it out. Very exciting to read this especially the part about niche websites getting success/traction after 18 months. I'm almost 6 months in so only a year to go :)
Appreciate all your help before and 100 podcasts is a great milestone. As they say in Scotland "gaun yersel".
Translated to English "Go on yourself".
And American "way to go".

Congrats on your podcast success :) and awesome advice from Pat, I think it's so important to remember this because you have to have enough interest in a niche to sustain you for a very long time.

AlexSol Premium
Totally agree with you on this one Deb. This is also the reason so many people say that we must pick a niche that we're interested in. Giving up is so easy when you hate what you're doing ;)
