I am proud of myself today - writing achievement

Last Update: January 27, 2020

Hello WA community!

Hope you're doing well and working hard on your businesses.

This is a quick post because I'm feeling rather proud of myself! I just realised I've hit 260,000 words. I'm pretty happy about that! These are all my own words, I've never outsourced my writing.

This has all been done whilst working, caring for children, and life in general.

I write whenever I find time. Right now my kids are doing sport (they do trampolining and it's our third hour here) and I haven't stopped since I got here. I try to be as efficient with my time as possible - I have to be. Of course I stop to cheer on my kids, and take photos and videos. I love watching them, they are amazing.

Tiffany inspired me with one of her posts this morning:

It's all about doing what we can in the time we've got, even when we think we don't have time.

Thanks to everyone here on this platform. You inspire me every day to keep going. Best wishes to all of you. Hopefully this inspires you too.

Please drop me a line below to share your successes, and tell us how and where you manage to get your work done.

Thank you ALL.

~ Melissa

Thank you Mia,

I remember when my children were younger, working to fit in efficiency so I could have more quality time with them.
In a way I think the restrictions have put them in good stead to be quite self-sufficient as young adults.

I'm working now to come up with a schedule that will help me achieve my goals.
I have personally observed that as people get older, the biggest factor that seems to support their health is having some sort of routine and schedule, and when that is disrupted other things do too.

Great post and thank you for sharing!

Best wishes,

Jacquie

Hey super congratulations Melissa that really is a tremendous achievement which I truly aspire to. Having recently hit 50,000 in under two months I can imagine the huge satisfaction derived from a total like 260,000

Again congratulations and keep writing. I hope you don’t mind that I follow you.

That's an incredible amount of work you've done Melissa, you should be proud indeed.
Time management is key, for sure. I think I have the balance almost right but still think there is room for improvement. It would be much easier were it not for 'life' sticking its oar in, still, that's it's job I suppose.
Anyway, well done.

These are the stories I like to see in our industry. They're real. It's real people with grit. Affiliate marketing requires work ethic and I'm glad you've shared this story so people can see affiliate marketing isn't just about beaches and laziness.

It's about real people with real families making real sacrifices to reach real goals. You've got a lot on your plate, but when you accomplish things, it proves what can be done (even with pressure).

I think many real people quit online businesses because their journey looks harder than the 4-hour work week and "laptop lifestyle" the gurus talk about. I know Tim Ferriss didn't mean to abandon work ethic, but I think many people take the title that way. Hahahaha.

Hats off to you for juggling it all. You can do it and your success will make you so much more confident, full of character, and it will create a resume that will impact many others.

Keep rockin!

I have a day job so I have to work at night and mostly weekends. My main niche site takes a lot of research so I try to do that during the week. I just started an MMO site too but it's easier to write for that one anytime. :) Great job!
