I upgraded to premium today with 3 days left in my trial period. Something you would rarely see me do as we all know what it is to milk a trial period for SaSS products or memberships. (Anyone seen my Netflix password?) I’ve realized that the key to building this WA community is on keeping the babies on milk. I discussed it in-depth on my previous post here. But more importantly, building individual success is a process that requires you to step away from the Participant ribbon table and really get into the arena. I hate to say it, but I’m growing more apprehensive as I receive encouragement by way of cheezy impersonal emails and gamified training modules. I get it, not everyone actually is here to make a full-time income. Most people want an extra $1000 or 2. I don’t mind that, I just can’t believe that this same route will get me to goals I’ve set for myself. There is a process and I’m sure it involves some serious adversity and learning. I’m also sure that no matter how easy other people, coaches, communities make it seem. They aren’t really there to do the work for you.
My point is simple, WA handles you with kid gloves, but when it comes time to write great, quality, relevant content and pick offers that convert what happens when you fail? Most of you reading this have seen the MLM pitches, the Real Estate shows on HGTV. Everything seems easy, and everything has it’s hard parts. Why not talk about approaches to those particularly rough spots early on? Why does it get put off and offer us a source for our anxiety?
The struggle to make your first couple thousand is real and it’s not something to run away from. We identify the difficult in order to prepare an approach to succeeding. Am I the only one that feels this way? I’m frustrated with the “grand reveal” nature of this style of course layout. I look forward to completing the course, but not so much the next lesson (or next email from my friend Kyle for that matter.)
Give me a friggin break. I don’t care about sharing or viewing my profile. How about we get to the meat of the course?
