It feels like I have done nothing but read for the last month. My head hurts!
It really does feel like I went back to college and took a intensive course, one where they beat you over the head with a book and keep your eyelids open so you have to watch videos for hours.
I can see why people keep doing whatever it is they are doing, no matter whether it works now or not. Learning new stuff is hard work. It can also be expensive if you buy all the products recommended. This is why everyone tries to get newbies on their email lists, you buy stuff in the hope it will offer you a short cut to success.
Sometimes it does, sometimes it offers a stepping stone and sometimes it is just a pile of poop written in large font so it fills the pages.
Why Look Into New Industries?
Because I have been caught before by just doing one thing, when I stopped doing software and solely worked on adsense sites I did very well..Until Google changed something and my sites tanked.
When I stopped everything else to work on one product for weeks.. Well someone released a very similar tool a week before mine and ate the market (especially since they were giving 100% across the board to affiliates).
I want to add another income stream to my business and the only way to do that is to go back to school. You can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results. If you have 5 sites that earn nothing and build another 5 using the exact same methods then the chances are you will get nothing from that 2nd group of five.
Use the knowledge you have and find a way to use that is different from what you already do.
You know how to make unique wordpress themes, find local companies with pig ugly sites and offer to make them a site that represents their business. Know someone who produces the most unique ashtrays you have ever seen, offer to set up their ecommerce operation.
Stop saying “i can’t” and change to “I will try”. If you try doing something and it doesn’t work as expected, then you can guarantee you will learn something along the way and that may be enough to create a new income stream.
One thing I have seen over the last 8 years online is that lots more people are talking mindset, and I will be honest and say I think that a lot of what I have read is hooey. But if you have a mind that says “don’t even bother trying” then you are doomed no matter what. You have to be in the game to have a chance of winning it.
If you can get your mind into a positive place and at least try then you have a much better chance of winning.
I have struggled to balance the new research with the needs of keeping income flowing now, there are only so many hours in a day and choosing how to use them can be tough. You have to balance all your personal and business needs out and that can be the toughest thing for anyone to do.
So is my research paying off? That is the big question.. The answer… Yes it is starting to and will grow
