Worn Out

Last Update: August 18, 2016

Another long week of fixing problems on my site. It seems to be never ending right now. I'm also finding the lack of traffic to my site frustrating. I think maybe I just need a couple days off, after spending at least twelve hours a day on this the last few weeks. I'm just not sure how to do that -- lol! I feel like if I take time off everything will really fall apart. Must be part of the psychology of having a brand new business and not earning money yet.


On the brighter side of things, Google accepted me to Adsense today. I've been so focused on fixing things that I forgot I'd even applied! We'll see how that goes. First I have to figure out how to get some traffic! Maybe with a couple days downtime my brain will be fresher

You mean my third arm? I wasn't sure it was detachable anymore. LOL! Seriously, I hear you. I'm working today and then going to leave the laptop off over the weekend.

Good for you - I'm good at giving out the advice but not so good at listening to myself! I know what you mean about that 3rd arm! :)

Thanks for the encouragement. Just to clarify, I'm nowhere near giving up. Just too tired and realizing I'm probably a hindrance to myself because of it. I'll recharge and be right back at it! :-)

Hey there. I share in your frustration of not having traffic. I'd like to share with you a little story that I keep telling myself for motivation. I have this friend, Shuli, who started a spice company around 2000...I remember his very first "office"...warehouse...I remember his business troubles, having to take loans from banks, friends...you name it. I remember when he finally opened his shop in Napa Valley and moved his warehouse to a larger building. Day after day was a struggle for him. Then after he opened that shop, finally he started to make some money, after paying somebody good money to get his website noticed etc...many many years of growth and struggle, many times he was gonna give up. Took years for him to see profit. The guy has now moved back to Israel, his shop in Napa is still open and functions well without him. He just has to take a few trips to the U.S. to maintain etc. Took about 5 years to see profit, took about 10 years to see growth, took 15 for it to become a semi-passive income. See what i mean? We've just started.
2 hours a day daily is better than knocking yourself out and burning out. Yeah, take a couple days break from this if you need. Relax, don't burn out.

Yuriy.

Thank you for this inspiration. It is a great reminder that sometimes the "long haul" is a lot longer than we imagine, but it will happen with enough time and dedication. Wishing you more traffic, and know that we will both get there!

Not going to give up, but I am going to follow your example and take a couple days off before jumping back in. Thanks for the encouragement!
