2011 90 Day Summer Success Challenge
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Hi Warriors,

I just saw a blog post by a colleague of mine issuing a summer challenge to her members and I thought it was a great idea.

You might have heard (or experienced) that summer is slow in IM (depending on your niche). I'm not so sure that's true (or at least to the degree that it's talked about). It's easy to let that idea kill our efforts, momentum and motivation. So I thought a WF 90 Day Summer Success Challenge (running June - August) might be good for us all since it would 1) help keep us on track, 2) provide support and motivation and 3) create measurable results at the end of 90 days.

If you're in need of a summer "reboot" or support for your goals/growth, maybe a 90 Day Summer Success Challenge will help you make progress or get over a hump you've been dealing with for a while. If you're comfortable with it, post your goal here for support and encouragement. If you're not comfortable with it, just write it down for yourself. Either way, committing to such a challenge may be just the thing to help you make some real progress.

To be successful, your goals 1) should be limited to just 1-3 goals (primary, secondary, etc.), 2) specific and 3) measurable. Since everyone is at a different place in their business, "success" will be different for everyone. You might need to focus on listbuilding, or product creation or client-getting, or... But no "busy work" is allowed! The goal(s) is to achieve a specific, measurable goal in the next 90 days -- one that will move your business forward in a concrete way.

If you choose to post it here, post periodic progress reports here for ongoing support and encouragement.

They say that success begins with having specific goals and writing them down, so I'll go first:

Personally, I struggle with fear (which creates a lack of momentum and motivation), lack of ideas, overwhelm, etc. And I end up being very busy with a lot of "busy work" that's not really moving my business forward, even though I know (intellectually) what I need to do. It's the mental/emotional stuff that's holding me back.

I'm launching a new membership site. My plans are to pre-launch it this summer and then officially launch it in Sept. or Oct. I'm excited about it, but nervous too.

I have just two goals for this summer (the pre-launch phase of my business):

1. Build my list to 1,000

Since this is a brand-new membership site (not yet launched), my list is at less than 10 for this site right now. I've built very small lists before, so 1,000 seems huge to me (especially since I'm starting from scratch).

2. Get 10 pre-launch charter members (paid) before the official launch.

That's it!

Anyone else want to share and join the WF 90 Day Summer Success Challenge?

Michelle

I'd love to hear your goals/plans for this.

In spite of being so connected by the Internet, it's easy to feel so disconnected and isolated. And it's even easier to lose focus since we have such tremendous latitude in our schedules and deadlines/progress. It actually works against us.

I'm serious about my own goals in this challenge. It would be nice to have the camaraderie of knowing others are traveling the same path I am this summer.

Ooops! Thanks for the heads up.

I honestly didn't mean to post it in the wrong section. I usually come to the main forum and rarely go to any of the others.

Oh well. I can't move it myself, so I guess it's up to the mods to put it where it belongs.

It's been 17 days. Not sure why this thread died so quickly but I wanted to post an update on my goals.

Goals:

At the end of the 90 days

1.) Make $1000 total completely online
2.) Build a buyers list of 100
3.) Create and launch 2 WSO's


1.) $354/$1000 So far
2.) 40/100 So far
3.) 0/2 So far

I think I'm on track to hit my goals pretty quickly. Once that happens i'll be sure to push them further and keep going.

How is everyone else doing?

Hey Gregg,

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I have minimal posts and cannot PM or leave a visitor message. Just recently was corrected on the fact that we can leave email addresses for others.

As far as the logo, I still need one, what are your prices? Ya man, we have several things in common. I'm 21 in college out here in Cali, the whole deal. Always looking for a JV, list swap is a possibility but not for a month or two.
I'd love to get in touch, as you said, very similar goals.

nrhopkins@gmail.com

As for my goals, My list is over 250, strictly on organic traffic. I'm moving, short on time

Look forward to speaking with oyu Gregg.

-Nate

That's great. May we know please the steps you took: How and what you did to reach this goal? We all need to learn from each other. You can share what you did without revealing too much to saturate your efforts.

The money I made was all through fiverr gigs for logos.
The list building was purely through free books on the warrior forum and participating in discussion as well as a little through my blog.
