Week 4: SAC is the Challenge I Didn't Know I Needed
As this is an SAC update post... First the update:
This past week has definitely had it's growing pains. Such is life, huh?
I have managed to very quickly have my Business Page posts removed from Facebook, despite all of my preemptive attempts to avoid just that. Facebook apparently doesn't have enough people employed to answer their User's support questions, as I've e-mailed them twice with no response, yet.
While I've placed that venture in limbo, I've continued on the with the SAC Checklist:
- I completed another Review post, and this time I used the thread that Kyle made to post for comments and feedback (from Bootcamp Phase 2). I've received three very good comments so far, so I appreciate the interaction there.
- I added several more Jaaxy keyword phrases to my Saved Lists
- I found some information that caught my curiosity and will be the topic of my next Review post, which I will start writing today
- I managed to stay caught up with Chat minutes
- I created a plan to move forward with alternative social media / marketing efforts
- I made some edits to three older posts (Wow! Is it something to go back to older content and see the difference in content & styling!) I also made them a bit longer.
When One Door Closes, Another Door Opens
In the midst of a whirlwind week, I chose to set some time aside to focus on my offline business, which, funny enough, meant more time on the WA platform(!), as I am building out a new website.
After much debate over which theme to use, I have narrowed it down to a couple. I have created the necessary documents to upload to the site, and am very pleased with the progress there.
After reaching a good stop & reflect point, I jumped back into some training, and realized what has been happening these past few weeks.
Kyle Teaches with Purpose
As you progress through the training here, things that may have been brand new to you start to feel like second nature. Things begin to click. Your ideas expand. You start craving the research process. You start writing faster, while creating better content.
Since the SAC started, it has meant being in the hot seat. Continuous drive. No stops. Research. Content. Engage. Repeat.
Knowing full well that Kyle always leads us to the point we need to be, I have followed the winding road half blind but in confidence. I know from completing the OEC that Kyle teaches information in a specific way at a specific time for a specific reason.
Every time I questioned something, I simply did the task to the best of my ability, and moved on, trusting his leadership, and knowing that I can edit or change things down the road if need be. Almost every time, the answer I needed was right around the next corner.
Why is the SAC the Challenge I Didn't Know I Needed?
There's a metamorphosis taking place here with each of us.
Yes, we all come here to learn new skills, hone existing skills, and build businesses that cover every industry possible, but through it all there are subtle changes taking place that we don't even realize until there are enough of them to turn on the light bulb. Aha!
Did you know when you first started, that you would EVER write so much content in your life?
Did you know that you would learn so much about a certain topic that YOU would become an expert of that topic?
Did you know that you would make a difference in the lives of hundreds and thousands of other people with your words, your blog, your website, and your community interaction?
Did you know that WA would become such an integral part of your daily life?
The SAC takes everything we are taught here, expands it, and then puts it into a condensed soup can.
We are on overdrive, but instead of creating stress, like a job deadline, it creates hope and motivation like seeing a finish line 50 yards ahead. You're GOING to make it.
It's streamlined, next level, training. Everything we need to push us to where we want to be.
For those of you completing the current SAC, envision that Finish Line.
For those of you following, or those who are new, add the next SAC to your To-Do List. It will surely improve your skillset and add value to your business.
I am enjoying it immensely, and I hope all you other SACer's are as well!
