I've finished level 2 of the Online Entreprenuer Certification Course. Yay!
I'm on the last section (10) of Part 2 of the online entrepreneur certificate, and I was very glad to hear Kyle finally talk about moving on to how to make money! I've got seven posts up and as many YouTube videos and I was wondering the other day, "Now what? What's the point?"
I am very impatient - I know this about myself. I also know I don't suffer fools gladly, I cannot bear injustice of any sort and I'm driven to help others whenever I can. So bad and good. But I was very glad to hear that we're moving on to monetisation.
I have to say I really feel like I've come a long way in a short time here at WA. I remember the almost mind-numbing feeling of being overwhelmed when I first joined premium. I didn't know where anything was, I couldn't tell one section from another, and confusion was my name.
BUT I just kept doing the training and with the help of other members and ambassadors I'm pretty pleased with where I am right now. SO thank you all very much.
My niche is creative writing - my background in running writing groups. The whole idea was to run a LIVE writing group in YouTube but after two weeks of terrible fails, I've had to admit that where I live makes it impossible to have a good enough connection to even attempt that! YouTube kept saying, "you're streaming at 670 - could you turn it up to THE MINIMUM of 4,500, please?" Anyone in Oz who doesn't live in one of our seven capital cities knows that - no! I can't turn it up. NBN? Bah! Humbug!
So, after a mid week slump where I felt very sorry for myself for a day and a half - and railed against the universe for ruining my plans - yet again (I'm also a trained actress and drama queen) - I'm remodelling. I'm recording my sessions as though I'm live and hoping that works. It could fail horribly. If people stop watching - the YouTube algorithm will beat me up for lack of engagement. So, the jury is still out.
I'm REALLY disappointed I can't do what I want, but I'm still trying to find a fresh path that makes me happy - still within the writing niche. I'm sure I'll figure it out with your help.
Thanks to all of you who got me to week 7!! I've enjoyed meeting and sharing with you.
