Starting your own business can be frightening and exciting all at once. There will be more obstacles than you can imagine. Some of these include the naysayers, money, and the list goes on and on. The biggest obstacle, however, will be YOU.
This journal is being kept as way to make myself accountable and hopefully provide you, the reader, with some insight into the mistakes and successes that I experience along the way.
The first thing you must do when starting a business is get educated. There are several places you can find education for the online business world. Affiliate marketing is probably the most common way to make money online. To get started with affiliate marketing, you can read about my start up recommendation here. For my favorite and most effective recommendation, check out the video on this page. You will be asked for an email to get the video. You don’t want to miss this one.

I have really been putting forth effort towards growing my business pretty heavily for the last month. I did have a week off where my wife and I took a cruise to the Cayman Islands and Cozumel. My business was growing itself while I was away without internet access. The reason for that can be found in the aforementioned video.
Today, I made my third video, but it was the first time I made one using the setup that purchased this past week. It was nothing extravagant, but if you check out my YouTube channel, you can see the difference between the first two videos and the one I made today.
I have made a lot of mistakes in the last couple of months, even in the last few weeks. I think my biggest mistake has been not staying focused on just ONE thing. Instead, I was busy trying to learn everything I could and about getting this business going.
Now, today, I am on my second of a 30-day challenge that I will share with you as well. This challenge is meant to help me get better at my business by learning from others who have succeeded. I am extremely excited because I feel more focused than ever.
Buckle up and let’s get ready to take this journey together. Feel free to contact me at any point throughout this journey for help getting started or even help getting out of being stuck.

Today started out great. I have started to really focus on making this schedule work for me. My new routine is to wake up and get the dogs fed. Then I focus on checking and responding to emails while my stepson is getting ready for school. I also go ahead and get breakfast done before we head out. After dropping him off at school, I immediately put this audiobook by Tony Robbins on play for the ride home.
After I return, I begin work on today’s mission. What mission, you ask? Well I will give you the answer to that, but first I want to tell you a little bit more about this journey. When this started out back in September, all I could think about was making money, I need to make money online, I need to get away from working for somebody else. Well, all I did in return was spend money, looking for the next shiny object. Then I found the training I had been looking for.
Ironically enough, I found this training while I was checking out reviews for another training that was supposed to make me a lot of money online. You can find my review of the original training here. The “new” training I found changed my whole focus on things. I watched one video and realized this is where I need to be learning. After watching the video, I found the challenge I mentioned to you earlier.
The challenge I am currently working on is for the purpose of growing your business into something profitable. I wrote a review on a company called Clickfunnels here. This company puts on a One Funnel Away challenge that I highly recommend for anyone looking to start a business. While I am only on day 3, I have already learned a lot about getting my ducks in a row if you will.
That about sums up Day 2 of the journal so far. Oh yeah one other thing, I came up with a new slogan today, be different so you can BE DIFFERENT.

Whew, today has been a busy one to say the least. I am actually a little out of sync on my daily schedule. Typically, I have been doing my YouTube journal first then coming to write here.
But today is a little different. I completed day #4 of my One Funnel Away Challenge. Today’s video for that one was a little longer than the previous days but man did Russell have some good stuff in there. If you haven’t signed u for this challenge yet, I highly recommend doing so. In the first four days of what they are calling the “pre-training”, I have learned so much.
At any rate, the timing of that one threw me off a little bit for the rest of the day. I had already planned to do a video review for one of the traffic creating products that I am giving a test run. I will also be creating a review article for that one.
Right now, as I type this message, I am on a live training webinar with one of the great coaches I have with the advanced education classes and my #1 recommendation. Which reminds me, I still need to do my informational review article for this education. Don’t wait for my review though, check out the informational video here
Days like today are exactly why I am starting my own business, it has been extremely busy and the schedule hasn’t worked out quite like I was planning but I have the control over that and instead being annoyed by the schedule, I am having a blast and enjoying the heck out of this day. I feel like I’m making so much progress.
Day 3 has been great so far….
