I was interested in discussing the issue of giving up. Because we hear a lot about succeeding, but how do you know when a project is simply not going to work - and managing the process of stepping away.
I ask because I've been helping with a project for two-three years but the founder has decided to give it up. Which is fair enough. We were getting 7,000 - 8,000 visits a month, but we tried to launch a course - and unfortunately none of our 2,000 plus subscribers actually took us up on it.
And after that, the founder decided, 'well we tried but I think it's time to knock it on the head.'
It's a good niche and part of me wonders, what if I took it on myself? Perhaps I could try monetizing it via Adsense, affiliate marketing and e-books.
I'm really stuck in two minds at this point... perhaps I need to take on a new side project and learn the lessons from this one.
Anyway, I'd be interested in hearing people's thoughts on this one... (And general experiences in this regard)
