Before investing money in any learning materials, follow these tips.
1: Study the Creator
I mean, really study the person. Spend a few hours reading their blog, checking their background and getting to know the person. Are they knowledgeable? Connected? Well known in their niche? If their free content feels helpful, their premium products tend to be helpful, too. Feel clear on your buying decision; check the source of the course or eBook.
2: Consume the Offering (Skip NOTHING)
Read every page of the eBook. Follow every module of the course. Before putting the knowledge into action you need the full amount of knowledge, to put into action. Complete the offering with patience and persistence. Take your time. Soak it up.
3: Take Notes and Study
These are often new concepts quite unfamiliar to you. You better take notes, and study, to allow the ideas to seep into your mind, to take the knowledge with you.
Example; if you published 1 post monthly on a free blogging platform, as the whole of your blogging efforts, ALL 60 plus pages of my blogging eBook will be new, unfamiliar knowledge, to you. Unless you possess a photographic memory, you cannot remember all 60 pages to put into use, later. Take notes. Study.
4: Put Your New Found Knowledge into Action
Put your new found knowledge into action:
for months, then years. Good things take time. If you've been blogging or marketing the terrified, panicked, amateur hour, struggling and failing way, it's gonna take ample effort, ample time and detachment, to do things the clear, calm, confident, detached, professional way. Be patient. Relax. Feel discomfort. Proceed.
Nobody makes you successful, but you, following smart, sound advice from proven, heart-centered, pros. The course is the guideline, or tool. You are the craftsperson, learning how to use the tool by dissecting it, then, using it patiently to develop your skills.
Success will find you.
Follow these 4 steps. Prosper.
