Remember the Importance of Focus

Last Update: November 14, 2019

Started my third website today. This one is all about Alaska -- stories from me and from others, and also some examples of Alaskan art and jewelry. It's going to be a labor of love. Now, if I could just clone myself, so there would be more time available.

When you build a WA website, you are wise to focus solely on that one project, as there is so much work to do, especially at first. You need to keep your focus on only one site until it is going successfully.

I was determined to do just that until the SAC came along. Then I had to start a separate website to promote WA in order to be part of the program. It has not been easy, and is not a process I can recommend. However, to participate in SAC, I had no choice.

Now I am starting a third one. Am I crazy? Possibly. If you think so, you won't be the first to have that opinion. However, I will not be building the new site very fast. I can work on it at odd moments when my other work is completed. At least it's started!

If you are struggling, or making slow progress, I urge you not to bite off more than you can chew. Focus is so important if you want to move forward. At times I wonder if I am learning to be a super affiliate or if I am just trying to do the impossible.

Don't do the same, please, until your first website is going well and bringing in some income. Don't dilute yourself to the point where you are stuck in the mire of overload. Of course, if you decide you don't like your first niche choice, you can always scrap the idea and start afresh.

Remember eating the elephant -- one bite at a time. The same goes for websites. This is not a race. Be aware: Here we have a case of "do as I say, not as I do."

Of course, I have yet another domain purchased, as I'd also like to start a website on wild and edible plants. Will I get to that one? Possibly, but I promise you it won't be soon.

So, take a lesson from me. Unless you are crazy or have more time than most of us, focus on one website at a time. Your life will be far mellower, believe me.

Meanwhile, wish me luck! I hope to be able to wade through all my projects. Perhaps it's all caused by a sense of urgency, as I'm not getting any younger.

Drat!

I have wondered how others can keep up with multiple websites. Myself, this is a learning process that I am learning for the first time and I do not need to rush things. So you are advising to wait to do the bootcamp training until our first website is up and going well?

Have a blessed time
where ever you are

Do you have your entrepreneur training done? Yes, get your website going well. You could start the lessons, but I'd say don't start a website at the same time. Once your first one is established, that's the best time to start another one.

Drat this here is some good advice and words to live by. I was thinking maybe I might not be getting the steps done correctly. But you're telling me not to rush it and work on what I have already built. Thanks for the advice. It was much needed Elevatedinfo.com

So glad it was helpful. You are right -- take your time to make sure you do it right, and work on your present website.

I wish you luck with your new website, Fran.

I also agree with your advice about focus when it comes to the number of websites personally owned.

I have 4 websites. Unfortunately, two of those sites have not received attention from me for far too long. The other two sites I continue to develop and find it hard to keep up with the level of content required.

Oh, yes, I hear you. The two are hard enough to keep up with, and as for websites, I, too, have 4, but have not done anything on the fourth one for a long time. Will slip in an Alaska post from time to time.
