Frank Kern talks about a high quality product as being the number one contributor to wealth.
I can see the truth in this too with 3 months of work creating video tutorials and not creating the product prospects want. That's not to say the content is poor but more about how I teach it and sound quality.
It's a school boy error to create hours of video tutorial work BEFORE getting it reviewed by ''go to guys and gals''. But it was actually a close friend that told it to me straight - ''you just sound off in all those videos you've created''.
God dam I thought it sounded good, I thought others would love it...
Turns out I sounded like Gollum on benzos...
I got stuck in my own head believing my own lies and forgetting the number one rule - will prospects and customers love it?
It hurts. I've burned the candle at both ends on this new product series, being told it ain't right and you need to do it again was like salt in the wound.
With a crushed ego and my tail between my legs I've spent most of Christmas brooding over my mistakes.
During that time it occurred to me that I might have been let off the hook. I could have released the product, spent money, and given myself a bad name that would be hard to shake.
Why didn't I get things checked out sooner? Well sometimes I think I know best and I forget that IM can be a little isolating. The mistake stems from being one degree off course every day and ninety days of that I'm going in the wrong direction.
My point is that despite all the effort, time and resources I've poured into the product it's irrelevant if the product isn't of the best quality it can be. That before it leaves the fingertips for launch it has to be spot on.
So with lessons learned I restart on Monday morning.
Do I want to restart?
I hate beginnings.
The other culprit?
Apart from me?
The $40 head set. I had great pleasure in cremating it into hundreds and thousands. I hate Samsung!
Anyone else made such a colossal mistake like mine?
