Since joining this forum I not only launched my first product online but the people that bought it love me for it.
The day I made my first sale (November 2010, within the first week of launching my product that too!!) was probably better than my first kiss! No really, even my first romantic relationship never left me that excited!
I realized that it made me happier that someone out there who I never met told me I made a huge difference in his business and gave me a testimonial for my product. The happiness I felt was worth more than the money... and the money wasn't a problem, because the product was valuable enough to get weekly income.
I was also lucky enough to be reading Harv Ekers Millionaire Mind (which btw, I got from the library) and then eventually bought my own copy because I wanted it by my desk while I work from home. Which brings me to my next point... I now work full time from home! **To save you time, my biggest take away from that book was to create value! If you create value, people will love you for it!
I am a social being ... but I somehow don't feel lonely at home because I finally started working on products I felt strongly about. It took work but then again my product is in a specific niche and I understood what I was getting into before I committed.
What I learned a month into this is to make time to work out (I gained like 10 pounds in one month from being glued to my screen lol), to leave my desk even if I am just going to take a walk but to LEAVE my desk for atleast a few hours in the evening and it helps me come back refreshed! I don't know how this works, but it just does!
Anyways, long story short... this forum is awesome!
I sometimes worry if I might burn out, ... will this excitement last?
If anyone else has experiences (not necessarily related to marketing) but more related to habits that keep the excitement going, I would love to hear it!
