His first year in business he made $500. He used this simple exercise to grow his business by $3,000 a month.
I was about to give up on my business.
My first year in online business, if you could call it a business, was a washout. I netted over my first year, at positive estimates, $500. Now, I’m consistently making $3,000-$4,000 a month (while working a full-time job). I contribute this success to this simple exercise I started in my second year of business.
I set my goals too low when I started my business. I aimed for $500 per month. I didn’t know how I would make the money, but I pushed to find a way. I thought, “$500 a month is a stretch. I don’t think I can even make $100 a month.”
“Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re probably right.” – Henry Ford
My predictions were correct. I ended up making $50-$100 a month at best. In my second year of online business, I implemented my mentor’s advice that I shared in this episode of The 66 Day Experiment.
Are Your Goals Too Small? – Day 22
I hate snake oil salesmen, so let me make this clear: I’m not selling anything. I’m not trying to promote a course or book that promises dreams of riches and life on a tropical island (I live in the opposite of that: middle of Michigan).
What I do share is an exercise that
expanded my monthly income to $3,000+ a month, opened up new options to make money, and can be applied to your fitness, marriage, or any life goal you have.
