How and why you can win or fail with WA!
Let me start with what made me think to write this for you. Well I have run several sized businesses over the years and worked on project sites, committees and the rest. They are all different, as is this platform here.
There is however one element which is the same. That of course is the actual people involved. So I am writing this as if I am looking down from my ivory office tower and seeing you all very busy here on WA. So far - so good!
I cast my eye across my desktop and see the Activity Dashboard, (Top left).
Ah Activity! One click and here MrsJones007 can see lots of unanswered questions, hmmmm, now I see Mrs Jones007 is opening and reading them and wanting to comment, even though she only joined today!
Oh! Look JohnBoyJohn has seen the chat and he is off - ah yes, he is making new friends, chatting away! Boy this is great, he has even asked if anyone is making any money here yet, very ambitious is he not?
Next we get the Classrooms, ah and hereeeee's Johnny2! He is headed in the right direction, but wait..., he is scrolling all the way to the end, yes he has found the most important one - the affiliate programme. Well he needs to know how much money he will not be making without the website he has not started with yet! At least he did not go straight to Email or Video Marketing?
Ah, next we get the Top 10 list, this is great as PolliPaulina can read the blogs that are currently popular, like those 2 from OldMule! (Yes, you lovely people got us 2 top ten 4 days in a row because you are awesome!), but as PolliPaulina does not know anything about the OldMule, perhaps something from Kyle may have been a bit closer to the reason of joining yesterday?
Fortunately there are currently no notifications so RobDaJob can cruise on to, hang on, what is that - an aeroplane? WOW! Must go check that out dude he smiles and is gone with the fairies for the next hour. Oh well, moving on!
SimplePieMan sees the pen symbol and thinking he may have to write something he skipped past that button and now he is learning how he can rank and be the next ambassador! How cool is he?
PompousPratz has seen the profile button and is seemingly doing a great job on creating a profile page, full of useful stuff about himself and .... wait, hang on, we better take a closer look! What has he written?
"Dear Santa. I have joined this magic pill place and I am going to make a ton of cash! How cool is this WA place? So, my goals are that you give me a Pontiac Muscle V8 with all the trim, holiday home is good, kidz thru coledge, and apart from that I want it in 2 days or a week, if I must wait, thaz ok. i will do writing some more later when I can fink of more to spend the money on. Thanks. Your good friend, PompousPratz". He too is obviously very ambitious?
Get started here, we see WillieWinker has clicked the link and seen the first lesson - great stuff here! Ah, wait, he has just gone through the lesson titles and is now .... ah he found Build My Website, we have a forward thinker here as he is now working out how to send a support ticket as he can not see his 2 free websites! After all he did start 2 hours ago. Must be better than actually doing the lessons first?
GingerVitals has found the bootcamp and gone straight to see what is going on in Phase 2!
Yes, there is a but on the horizon and it could belong to anyone of our lovely members, that would be a sad day! They had finally found a place that could have worked for them - but they did not go to class and step up to the steps!
I know just as anyone else that it is difficult to find a group of fairly like minded people, yet we have that at WA.
Those who win here HAVE done the classes, taken the steps, asked for help and through determination and focus and commitment to themselves, have themselves succeeded.
So please do not be a MrsJones007, JohnBoyJohn, Johnny2, PolliPaulina, RobDaJob, PompousPratz, WillieWinker or a GingerVitals!
[These names are the property of me and should never be used here on WA, or elsewhere, ... please, ... for your own sake, ... really!]
And there has to be only one OldMule, surely?!
Here is hoping that you enjoyed the post but also got the jest of the potential waste of time and energy that doing things you do not need to, instead of focusing on your goals, and by following the steps, is simply a massive waste of time, energy and potential revenue!
