Yes I know I say it every month! I can’t believe we’re at the end of October. There are only 2 months left of 2017. It’s got me thinking about what I have actually achieved this year and if I am brutally honest with myself, I am a bit disappointed. On reflection I think I have been very ‘busy’ but I’ve not really made as much progress as I would have liked.
I would have liked to have seen more success, more money coming in!
However I won’t beat myself up about it because despite not making much progress on the money front, I have made a lot of progress in other areas.
The amount I have learnt about Internet Marketing and digital products this year is huge! I have created my own products, I have a much better understanding of how the process of making and selling digital products works, I’ve started making my own videos, I have maintained my blog, started a Facebook fan page which nearly has 400 fans, a YouTube channel with 11 subscribers and I have a subscriber list of just over 100 people.
People come in to the online business niche because they believe it’s a quick and easy way to make money. Hands up! That is why I got into it. But it’s not quick and it’s not easy! I learnt that a long time ago but I am sticking with it because it still offers massive opportunity which I don’t feel is offered anywhere else.
What I have achieved this year is all part of the process, these things collectively have given me a solid foundation on which to grow, and that is what 2018 will be about.
When I look back at my monthly reviews, one thing that strikes me is they’re all a bit vague. I’ve written enough posts about having goals that are focused and measurable but it seems I’ve not been doing this myself. I need to be more specific about what I want to achieve, and I need to be more focus in what I’m doing.
October has been a strange month; I’ve kind of lost my momentum after September and completing the quick start challenge. I’ve not really been to clear on what I’m doing, and have been feeling a bit lost and a bit frustrated but that is all going to change.
The last 2 months are going to be about preparing for 2018. My focus for the rest of 2017 is all about my Facebook Page and my email list. I’m going to be running Facebook ads to get more fans and more subscribers. That’s it, a simple and clear goal which will place me a great position to get 2018 up and running and on that path to the 6 figure club.
If you’re not a fan on my Facebook page then make sure you pop over now and like it. I’m in the middle of an experiment looking at a cheaper way of getting more fans, which I’m posting weekly ideas about.
So that’s it for me today, i am really looking forward to the last 2 months of this year and having a simple focus. Let me know how you feel about your progress this year, are you pleased or you feeling a bit frustrated? What are you going to do to start planning for 2018?
