3 weeks and counting

Last Update: January 26, 2016

I can't believe its been 3 weeks already. Did I achieve all I wanted to in this period? Am i happy with my progress? Could i have done it on my own? All bloody good questions...

It took me a little longer than most to sign up to WA as I did probably more research then I should have but I wanted to be sure, and sure I am! I think the training materials and support of the community is awesome. At the outset I was super excited and fired up and set some high goals for myself, which is pretty normal for me and something i have to watch because often times I'm setting myself up for some sort of failure.I planned to write a blog a day which I thought was quite achievable but bearing in mind that I've got a full time job and a couple of young kids, its not as easy as a thought. In addition, blogging is not THAT easy and its not just the blogging but getting the layout correct, making sure you have the right keywords and then finding images. its a lot to pack in. But I'm not making excuses, honest! Anyway looking back, I think the website looks pretty good www.italianbraveheart.com (all about my experiences in moving to Italy from the UK). Have a look, I'm trying to throw some humour into the mix.

I still don't know if I have the niche right, i guess we all go through that at some point...is is too broad...Moving to Italy? I can see some product sales from this but am worried about the big ticket items, hopefully that will come to me over the coming weeks. Any feedback is appreciated?

I think the biggest success for me has been the realisation that I can make a big success out of this and its nice to work on a new project with thousands of like-minded individuals, it gives me a buzz. I'm also proud that I have stuck it out this far and am excited about the future with you guys. No sales just yet but that will come.

Looking forward to the next 3 and 6 months I can see big things. I hope that during month 3 we start to see the beginning of some revenue appearing and then by month 6 I'd like to achieve at least £500 per month with at least 2 websites.The plan is then to give up work by the end of the year.

See you soon.

Thanks for the kind words Katie. I'm still not sure about the niche..moving to italy. I'm battling a bit with the big ticket items. No doubt it will all come to me one night!

Hey Brendan,
You are moving right along with your site. Took a look and looks pretty good.
I hope you achieve your goals and make some money.
The niche may be a bit broad, but you can narrow it down as you go if you find that will help
Good luck!
