Every minute on these boards, there is a community servant willing to share their expertise, their experience, and their thoughts to help someone else. It is truly awesome to see.
As a motion of gratitude to the community, I'd like to give everyone the opportunity to do something purely selfish (its all good though).
It has two parts.
First) Give some details about your current situation, and maybe a brief look into your past.
Second) Give yourself the best advice you have for yourself. What do you feel is necessary for you to reach the specific goal you have for yourself.
I think this will serve two awesome purposes. One, it will give you an opportunity to reflect on your current situation, and what you need to do to move forward. And secondly, each piece of advice posted will give the community another valuable insight that might help them through a difficult challenge.
Cool right? I thought so...
I'll start it off...
I've been struggling online for the greater part of 3 years. I've had small successes, but nothing more than a few hundred dollars here and there. The past two weeks have been the best I've ever had, ($760 & $910), and I'm finally starting to get traction.
My advice for myself is to continue to optimize. I have let small successes like this derail me from my determination. If I continue to improve the systems I've developed to get to this point, and continue to manage the money in a conscientious fashion, to keep the business growing, I don't see any limitations.
Now its your turn!
