Hi Craig, many thanks for the welcome. It's been truly awesome here so far. For the first time, I am actually enjoying learning this, even the scary bits, because now they don't seem so scary!! LOL. I have been a member of another site and scouted round a 3rd before finding this one. NO ONE can touch WA in my opinion. Really excited for the future :)

So how have you "worked" as a Life coach? Are you wanting to use that experience for a website? Looking forward to seeing what you do with the opportunity. :D (How are you geographically challenged?)
Reply
MandyCollins Premium
Hi POrtega, yes I have 'worked' as a life coach. I moved away from 121 coaching for a while but am still in the PD community. It's not my experiences that I want to blog about or build a website around, its about helping others who have never really been exposed to coaching or a goal setting process.

I am geographically challenged as I am rubbish with directions. One of my old colleagues said I was the only woman he knew that could get lost with a SatNav! Lol......
Reply
POrtega Premium
Lucky you, your disadvantage puts you in the best place to develop an overcoming attitude and lifestyle, lol.

Geographical directions are like recipes, we can picture the end result at the beginning but we can't miss the important steps necessary to get us to the end (and some recipes/directions are written in a way we just don't "get").

Its just taking each step slowly until we make it through to our destination. Sometimes I've had to pull over to reset my directions.
Some directions are harder to understand than others (and some SatNavs too), so its wonderful that there are so many options out there now days. Just set aside the ones you don't comprehend and find one that works for you! :O

When my iPhone changed the maps program I wanted to pull the hair out of my head when I used the "new" mobile app. Yikes it sucked. But I found another app and could finally understand where I was and how to get where I wanted to go. Good luck traveling.

What niche are you thinking about?

Hi kyle, I only have 1 word.....WOW!! Yes, I am having an awesome time, thank you to you and Carson for creating such an amazing community and sharing all this knowledge :)

I do have a question. The answer is probably further into the training, but as you asked, lol ;) Background first: I done a course a while ago and the guys that ran it have sent me an affiliate code and some videos to promote it. I will earn commission on anyone that books. Now, I am a novice when it comes to the subject, so would in no way be able to blog about it without extensive research (Forex trading), but they are really good at what they do and the videos are pretty cool.

So my question is this: Can I do something similar to Leadpages in here, where I set up a lead magnet page, line the videos up in sequence and let it do it's thing or should I just shelve this idea until further down the line? What do you think? Yay or nay?

I am not looking for a quick win, but I am looking at working with what I have :) Am I getting a bit carried away here?
Reply
Kyle Premium
You can use "squeeze" pages in your business (what lead pages are) when you are ready to build a list. You don't build a list until you have a foundation for your business, you have content, and you have traffic.

Too many folks are teaching "build a list, build a list, build a list..." and fool people into thinking they can put up a squeeze page, create a sequence and away you go. It doesn't happen this way.

You are going to learn how to properly create a business online here and it definitely does not start with the use of squeeze pages (again, what leadpages are).
Reply
MandyCollins Premium
Yes, this does seem to be the common approach, thank you for the reframe :)

I will shelve that idea and get back to my lessons ;)

Hi Kyle, I hope you have had a good week? Thanks for the check in. What you have created here is amazing :)

I have done lesson 1. School holidays are a little challenging as I have to share a laptop with my youngest (and he has just got his first paid 'job' editing a spreadsheet for someone, so my access to the internet has been a little sparse, HOWEVER, I am now child free for the weekend and looking forward to working through the rest of the lessons.

Must dash, lesson 2 awaits, lol.

Have a beautiful day :)

Hi Carson,

Many thanks for the welcome. I'm really looking forward to getting my hands dirty while I learn. I have one product ready to go and another being written now and what I am missing is the knowledge of how to market and sell online. I don't know how I have never come across you guys before, but I guess today I must have been on the right side of the rainbow huh ;)

Look forward to chatting with you soon :)

Best wishes,

Mandy
