0041 - DON'T lose momentum!
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
After an extended break of about twelve months, during which time I devoted my time to my animal rights and welfare groups on Facebook, I am back, hopefully regularly.
It is very easy to lose momentum, to be distracted from the learning process by the demands of our families, our day jobs, our hobbies, other interests, and 101 other things - and put off until tomorrow what you really should do today. My advice - from experience - is : Don't Do It!!
I know the training here can be like being stuck in a school classroom, but it has to be done, and you can take a coffee or tea break whenever you want, go and watch TV, stroke the dog, whatever, and come back to it later, but whatever you do, come back to it and absorb the information without being distracted.
I never intended being away for so long (no, I haven't spent the last 12 months locked up in case you were wondering) and I am starting over again with the training having learned so much in my first six months as a member here. My highest member ranking was #73 and my absence caused a massive but inevitable drop in rank. My feeling is is that if you want to be a WA affiliate and sell WA to other people you have to have a credible ranking.
I renewed my WA annual subscription because I honestly think that this is the best place to learn internet marketing. It's very hard to find negative comments about WA; yes, I know some people say it can be a bit overwhelming but I'm sure learning to be a brain surgeon, a rocket scientist, or even a car mechanic is a bit overwhelming too when you first look under the hood/bonnet. It's the nature of the beast. Not everyone can do it. Internet marketing is a bit cleaner; no oily engines or bloody brains to deal with, just SEO etc.etc.
As Kyle says, the internet is a global marketplace with 2 billion+ customers - and you are not going to get them all passing a high street shop. It's the best and biggest and arguably the safest place to sell your digital or physical product and as someone who has run a traditional bricks and mortar business in the pre-internet days I can truly and honestly say that the internet is the best place to be and WA is the best place to learn.
So - NO distractions! DON'T lose momentum and DO the training.
Love and Peace ! - Dave.
