As we enter the last 3 months of 2016, its time to pull out our goals and review our progress or lack thereof. Which goals are still important? Are any of them achieved or no longer relevant? What have you been doing to move closer to your goals? What results are these actions having? Are you surprised at what you see? Now is the time to see if there are adjustments to your strategies, your advertising, your actions that will help move you forward toward your goals.
This year has flown by for me, and although I dislike excuses, so many things have occurred in my personal life, that I am no where near where I wanted to be by now. Part of the reason I feel like I have been so inefficient, is that I didn’t have a real plan in place yet, so when things came up, it was just too hard to keep going.
The lesson I take home from this is how important it is to make a written plan. Its okay to make revisions and changes, but it gives you a map to continue to move forward even when you don’t know the exact next step. As for me, I am now working on an updated game plan for the last quarter of the year. How are you doing?
If you have any tips on how you plan, leave a comment…I would love to hear what you have to say.
For those of you who follow my blog, I want to apologize for the long silence on my part. I was just getting started re-inventing my blog and presence with a personal tragedy occurred. One of my reasons for wanting to build my online business is to have more time to take care of family and friends. A couple of months ago, my youngest grandson Andy who was only 5 months old, a beautiful, happy, healthy little boy, was found not breathing when his babysitter returned to the room. It has been a devastating thing, not only losing my grandson, but also having to watch my dad and my daughter grieving the loss. Its an experience I hope no one out there has to go through.
As a result, I have been just going through the motions of life, just the basics. I miss his little smile every single day. I am now starting to learn to focus again on building my business. I hope you will be patient with me as I start over yet again. Its a lesson in life, even when getting knocked down, its important to get back up and start over.
RIP little angel…I miss you Andy.
I was a little unsure what to expect as far as results from participating in sponsoring an egg badge for the contest at ClickTrackProfit. As a relative newcomer to the industry with my blog, I knew I wanted to reach more people and build my list, but I was not sure if I could be successful. After all I had no idea what that would entail. However, I decided that it was worth a shot and learn as I go.
I have to say I am so impressed so far with my results. Now I know the real results Continue reading
So why am I talking about hunting eggs ? It’s almost time for the CTP Egg Hunt. This event takes place starting tonight March 14 at midnight and goes through March 28. 75 members will win cash prizes for finding the most of those elusive eggs or for doing various tasks for a hint or the badge itself. The folks over at CTP have worked to make it fun for its members to participate in a variety of contests. Many of these help not only the members, but also the participating sites for promotions by generating fun and a challenge!
This year I have decided to be a sponsor of one of the egg badges.. its a new step for me as I learn more strategies to grow my business. As most of you have heard many times, the money is in the list and there are many unique ways to grow your list. For me its about providing valuable information and building relationships with my readers.
If you want to learn about building your list , let me know. I use RocketResponder as my autoresponder, a must have if you are serious about building your business. I’ll write more about this in a future post but for now… Happy Hunting! Egg Hunting that is..
Hello all… I am making some changes to my site over the next few weeks, so I hope you will be patient while the pages will be changing slightly each day. I look forward to your comments on the changes!
The following is a reprint from a post I recently did for another blog. I thought my readers would also find it an interesting subject and I would love to get some feedback on it..
As I was thinking about what I wanted to write about, I was thinking about some of the issues or problems people in this community have the most difficulty with. One of these is the need for new members, new sign-ups. This is something we as affiliates deal with as we try to grow our networks, as well as the program owners. There are many things we can do to help us in our quest. However….
there is one issue that I have come across before, but just recently realized how prevalent the issue is. As I am working on updating the information on my blog and going through the many, many programs I am a part of, I want to start more actively promoting the programs to add to my income and help in my recommendations. There is one MISSING piece Continue reading
Now for another post about the Marketer’s Cruise 2016. In the last post, I talked about the importance of a Mastermind Group. Since then I posted on that topic here on the CTP Blog as a Guest Author (another step out of my comfort zone). I hope you will check it out and leave a comment.
Now to complete the story of the cruise. We had stops in Grand Turk, Curacao and Aruba. Since this year one of my goals is to travel to more places and to experience new things, I got to check 2 new places off my bucket list. Continue reading
Excitement on Deck!
As I started up the gangway and looked at the ship that I would call home for the next 8 days, I was filled with excitement, anticipation and since I didn’t know anyone yet, a little trepidation. Going through the lines waiting to board, there is somewhat of an excited carnival or pre-game atmosphere. I couldn’t wipe the grin off my face wondering what awaited me throughout the next week.
After boarding the ship, I found my way to my stateroom, my first time having a balcony in my room. I knew from the first time I stepped onto the deck of the balcony, this would be one of my favorite places to sit and meditate as I looked out over the ocean and contemplate my future. Its worth the upgrade!
After meeting my room-mates who were delightful and very successful ladies, we headed downstairs to Continue reading
This is what I woke up to the morning I was heading to Florida!
Hi everyone… For those of you who have been following my posts, you will see that I have been missing for a while. I was starting on my goals for 2016 and found out 6 days before the Marketers Cruise was leaving that I was able to get a cabin and attend! It was one of my goals for the year. Boy was I ever excited and it was crazy because since it was so last minute and a winter snow storm hit a lot of the country, I decided to take off in my car and drive to Fort Lauderdale, FL and the port.
My theme for this year is living more healthy, with joy and being more courageous. If you would Continue reading
