I’m Starting a Business
And I went out to eat seafood.
I’m typing this newsletter sitting on my bed with an icepack on my knees.
FYI, your girl has got cleared to head out and drive. My doctor’s review on Wednesday went really well and I can officially head out to eat and have fun.
So I did, went out after 7 weeks. Drank beer and ate seafood after 7 weeks. Look at the smile!
And then I came home exerted and my swelling is back :”) But hey, baby steps, right!
I’m SO MUCH better than how I was 3 weeks ago, and I’m sure I’ll kick some ass in another 3 weeks. :) Patience and I are getting along, for a change.
Today, we’ll talk about:
My new business!!!!!
Your last 2 months
What I’m reading
What’s the ‘Business’?
“I have lots of ideas. How do I pick the right one? Execute on as many as possible. The right idea will pick you.” ― James Altucher
Okay, so it’s just an experiment. Which, if gone well, could be a business.
I’ve figured that the writing community has one primary challenge which is also the only ingredient to grow as a writer online. Today, writers aren’t just writers but are also marketers and need to build their audience along with their personal brand.
All this needs consistency. And that’s where I can help.
I thought I should do a pilot run with a few writers and help a group of 10-20 people achieve results.
BUT, my random tweet got over 130 people interested and 70+ applications!
It was so so overwhelming and got me super nervous. I mean, why and how were so many people sure that I’ll be able to deliver? I need to believe in myself as much they believe in me! It’s a shame how much we put ourselves down :(
The approach I’m using is what James Altucher says, do everything like an experiment.
So, either this will work or I’ll learn. Either way, I’ll have a lot of fun and make new friends with writers from over 20 countries. :)
This program will run from November 01-21 and I’ll keep you updated. After all, you should not know the yummy success bits but also bitter challenges and learnings.
“The only truly safe thing you can do is to try over and over again. To go for it, to get rejected, to repeat, to strive, to wish. Without rejection there is no frontier, there is no passion, and there is no magic.” ― James Altucher
Your Last 2 Months
I truly feel New Year’s resolutions need a trial period like Netflix. Because what if you don’t even enjoy these resolutions?
It takes time to build a new habit or get aligned to a goal. Why not try and test earlier and get on track by the time next year starts so you can actually achieve your goals by next year?
I started working on my 2021 goals in October 2020, got more clarity by February 2021, got a direction by March and it’s now at the end of October I feel more settled. Had I started in 2021, it would’ve taken me until 2022 to reach where I am.
There’s a reason Netflix and Prime and even fitness apps give us trial periods. Try to use it with your new year resolutions?
I’ve written about this in detail which I hope gets published next week. :)
This Book Is Mindblowing
I’m not a very religious person but Conversations with God was on my wishlist for very long. In fact, it’s been lying on my bookshelf too for over a month because I felt it’ll be boring.
But I am mindblown.
If you know me, you know how much I believe in the secret, the law of attraction, the power of our subconscious mind. If you don’t, sorry if I lost you here.
This book feels like all my existing beliefs are getting together under one umbrella. I’m not just reading it, but I’m experiencing it. It’s fulfilling my soul in a deeply wholesome manner.
If this is something that excites you, grab a copy!
“Thought is creative - Fear attracts like energy - Love is all there is.” ― Neale Donald Walsch
This is all for now, folks. No articles for this newsletter because I mainly posted around creator economy and writing which I’m not sure you’ll like. I did send them to my ebook readers though as they’re into all things side hustles. :)
If you want to build a side hustle and make money online, you can get your free copy now 👇🏼 There are over 1200+ happy readers!
I will see you next week, take care.
