Talk about taking business on the road, I’m writing this blog post from Roswell, Georgia. I got in late so there’s not much time to explore the city before the wellness event tomorrow, but the view from my room as the sun sets is beautiful!
It’s Day 14 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge and today I listened to an inspiring podcast with special guest Jaime Tardy of the Eventual Millionaire. You can listen here.
Today’s prompt is:
What are two key ways you could use the habits of a millionaire to monetize your blog in the next month?
Jaime Tardy shares her story of moving from a 6-figure corporate job to paying off all her debt and being able to start her own thing while raising a family. While she discusses working in corporate, traveling and hating it, I don’t necessarily thing it is a bad thing. I think we all want different things out of life, some of us want to travel, some of us want the corporate job and being able to travel, go to meetings and deal with high-level strategies, planning and strategic management. Some of us want to freelance and provide services for others. And some of us just want to create art, share it and create a revenue stream from it. As long as you’d doing what you love and are happy doing what you love, go for it!
Things learned from listening to today’s podcast:
- If you don’t ask, the answer will always be 100% no. If you ask the odds of getting a yes immediately jump to 50%. (that’s pretty high!)
- It’s all in the details! Small steps all add up, even if you don’t feel like you’re getting anywhere keep going. You’ll be able to look back in 6-12 months and see how far you’ve come
- No excuses – it’s time to overcome those excuses and create positive change. Evaluate what is stopping you from moving forward and get rid of it. While everyday won’t be an easy walk in the park, hard work and dedication will get you there
- You don’t have to do everything. Some of the best advice I received was freshman year of college, my professor told me:
You don’t have to do everything, but do what you do well
What have you learned from habits of successful individuals you look up to?
