First things first hope you all had a very merry christmas, and I really wish you a great new year.
Unfortunately I was as sick as a dog with hideous man flu, not very good at all infact I still have it.
So with the above in mind I am trying to keep this post short because I basically feel like shit, but I need to write this before the end of the year.
Also I have noticed a few students seem to have given up, and I was sorry to hear that Andrew Vaughan has chucked in the towel, I wish you all the best Andrew.
I know its hard guys but I hope you might read this post, or stop by and read my book ‘newbies journal’ when its done.
Maybe it will give you some renewed motivation.
But my key thing I always have in the back of my mind when I feel like giving up is this quote:
“Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”
Winston Churchil 1941
Okay so I just wanted to write a blog post to reflect on the small success I have acheived since July 2009.
I wont write my life story here but just a quick overview for my new visitors.
I am married with three children and infact my son was born just before I started trying to make an income online, and as those with children know it can be very hard to get other things done around your family.
I am a postman who works 51 hours a week.
I have been dabbling online trying to make an income for around 8 years.
My computer skills are virtually nill.
I also have had severe confidence issuse in the not so distant past, and believe it or not I do find it hard to do this stuff its completely foreign to me.
Anyhow now lets get on to what I wanted to show to you
learning from both Alex Jeffreys and Dean Hollands, I want to reveal to you my acheivements so far.
I am very proud of my results so far online and truly believe I can take my business forward in 2010.
Also I have smashed a couple of my goals and am really pleased to have done that.
My stats as of 30/12/2009
I have made close to 2k online and on top of this have a potential recurring income of $600 a month from Dean Hollands GTS program.
I set a goal to have 1000 people in my list by the end of the year, I am pleased to say I smashed it and now have a list of 2,400 subscribers.
I have also made $400 so far as I have been building my list, click below to see the business model I have used.
According to Google Analytics since the end of May I have had 6289 visits and 13865 page views.
I have received 520 comments to my blog.
I have a Twitter following of 20,000 spread over three accounts, I use one for building relationships and another to tweet about giveaway events and new blog posts.
I have done a couple of interviews plus testimonials.
Also made many potential JV partners, some of them big time marketers.
I have been to a seminar, and met real life marketers in the flesh. And I have used most of my profits to pay for a trip to vegas to Alex’s workshop at the end of Jan.
There I hope to learn a ton more stuff, get more social proof for my blog, and hang out with the likes of Lee Mcintyre, Mike Filsaime and so many others.
There we have it my friends what a great year. I dont have my plans for 2010 set in stone yet.
But I want to grow my subscribers list to at least 15,000 and I aim to complete my ebook ‘newbies journal’ just after I get back from Vegas. And I would at least like to become a super affiliate.
See my planning has not exactly been great, my main obstacle being having to try and work around my newborn not easy my friends I tell you.
But I hope 2010 will be easier to plan.
I have to learn so much, product creation I need to learn more traffic driving techniques, I need to learn how to use camtasia.
Well I just need to learn.
So I try and keep things simple and what works for me.
But remember guys just keep setting those goals, reach them then move forward, never give up.
Well this turned into a super long post again, sorry its not up to scratch as I do feel like crap.
So look out my my new book ‘Newbies Journal’
So im now off to bed have a great new year my friends looking forward to meeting a few of you guys in Vegas.
Love to hear from you its been a bit quiet lately.
PS Would especially like to thank Dean Holland for starting me out on this journey you have grown to become a good friend my man, Alex Jeffreys for giving me this fantastic opportunity.
Plus big thanks to Paul Hooper for being my wing man, and a good friend also.
Also to many others to thanks but thanks everyone who has helped me this year. Special thanks to Rob canyon to.
