I am coming back after a multi-year hiatus to work on three projects that I started back in 2012, when I joined the digital marketing world.
I had great ideas, did a lot of work, but never had the discipline to stick with it. I had the "shiny object" syndrome, which had me running from product to product, from theory to theory.
Since then, I had set down my three websites and forgot about them. It is time to change this.
What is my goal?
• To earn a minimum of $2,000 per month collected income from my two Adsense sites that will feed into my third product site.
• Have a CTR of 4-5% on both sites
• Have at least 10k impressions per day across both sites
• Sell at least 25 items per week
What is my deadline?
December 31st, 2018
Why am I doing this?
I work in DM in my day job; I love my job and the people I work with. But it is not my goal to move up the ladder, I can--but I simply do not want to. My true desire is to be financially and location free. I have plans to move to Mexico City come January 1st, and I want to make sure that I am making enough money to feel secure, as well as have my projects to keep my sane. I made a date, and I am going to change my life on this date.
How am I going to hold myself accountable?
I will post to this forum throughout my journey, sharing highs and lows, asking for advice, sharing my statistics, and my feelings. It is okay if nobody reads it, but it is proof that I actually tried. I can't say that I was afraid of failure, or that I lost this opportunity, or that I was lazy. There will be no "what ifs."
What do I consider success?
It is knowing that I actually tried my best, I went on this journey, and that I was active in going after my dreams. I am human, there will be hiccups, or I will go MIA for a tiny bit due to my constantly traveling back and forth from Mexico, but I will plug forward--especially when it gets hard and I want to run, or give up.
