Success in 2021 - Day 18 On the Move Again
Welcome Everyone to Day 18! (in the Philippines)
I resolved the issues I had needed to research further yesterday and again sorry for the very short Day 17. Yes, I was trying to be consistent with my daily blog post goal for 2021. In the future, I would create a Day XX/XX post instead doing 2 days at the same time or more depending on the situation. Your time is valuable, too!
I was set to spend $2500 for an Educational product this coming Friday. I have been saving for a few months to be able to do this. I believed in the people that were offering this.
I was also looking at becoming a Consultant for another Educational platform later this year at a cost of $30,000.
Neither of these are going to happen now.
For once, I decided to listen to my inner critic and do additional research starting with the $30,000 program.
I searched Google and Youtube.
I know there are going to be negative reviews/complaints on any product/program ever produced. You can't satisfy everyone.
I was able to reach out and gather valuable information from others related to both of these and was/am disappointed at both of them.
I am not going to go into details here. Perhaps some day, I will do a Review of each, but I am thinking I won't do that either, because there could certainly be pushback and I don't want that either.
Life happens FOR us.
What did I learn from this?
The higher the cost of a product/service, the more research is needed.
Where did I go wrong initially?
I really believed in the sincerity of the people involved with this so my level of trust went up when I should have remained vigilant in understanding exactly what I would be purchasing.
Neither one had any kind of a money back guarantee. That's ok, but another reason to do my due diligence in checking them out further.
Inital low ticket items and even free products/services might be Super Value Packed. That does NOT mean the higher ticket products/services will be also. A false sense of security.
Does this alter my 2021 goals? NO.
What is my solution to losing these 2 programs?
If they couldn't do it right, then I WILL DO IT RIGHT!
I will invest the $2,500 I was going to spend into building my Brand and Educational Platform. I will do my best to consistently over deliver and the higher the cost, then the more value packed content needs to be included. Under hype and over sell and provide REAL value along the way.
The Best form of advertising is Word of Mouth and If I am doing everything right I'll have very satisfied customers not only wanting to come back for me, but also spreading the word to others. A Win - Win. :-)
Well this certainly creates a lot of work to do that I was not anticipating coming into 2021, but to me its a even Better Vision than what I had.
To Our Success!
