"A lot of this stuff, in my experience delivers returns after the fact - especially when it comes to blogging and social media. In fact, Chris Guillebeau wrote a guide a while back called 279 Days to Overnight Success. What do think can do the best…"
"It was really the second part more than anything else. All those things - guest posting, SEO, social media, etc. are great, but which one provides the greatest return? For me, it was connecting and talking with lots of different people. My blog was…"
"I agree, Greg. I am trying to discern where I can focus my energy to have the greatest impact in creating that second income. Managing a day job, family, and trying to establish a second income is hard work, of which I am not afraid, I just want to…"
"Thanks for the reply, Rob. Back when you were getting started, and possibly before you had an assistant or could afford to pay for one, what were some of the specific actions to get your business off the ground?"
"Nick, great post. I am finding myself in what I call “spinning plate” mode which is trying to do all the things that you have described figuring that these will help build some traction. To help get some focused direction…"
"I focus in on the things that only I can do, and then get help for the rest. I've got an assistant who handles a lot of those things for me. I give her the guidelines for what I want, and how to do it, and then I've taught her how to do…"
I just read this week's WW: Absolutely Overwhelmed (if you have read this one, James gives some great advice and tips). Kent Sanders posted the following in his response: I get overwhelmed with all of the things I am supposed to be doing to build an online business and platform.

"Great advice, James! I have found that when I am feeling overwhelmed, I am trying to tackle too many things at one time. Simplifying is huge for me. That usually begins with a little time to "refresh and renew" in terms of clearing out the…"
"Lack of resources--mainly time but also financial. Between evening commitments of my day job, activities of my teen and soon to be teen, and flexible work schedule for my spouse, time is probably the most precious."
"Yield is more dangerous to me. That voice that says "You should just slow down a bit on making that decision or taking that action" becomes more of a deterrent than the stop sign. I begin second-guessing myself, seeking more (and more and…"
"My initial reaction was: If you are going to look for cost overruns, extensions, and lower your expectations, then that is what you will get. Just heard a radio conversation this morning about finding what you are look for.
Then I read the…"
Most people are aware of online learning, but did you know that it is a $9 billion market? With over 10 years of online learning experience, I can help you discover low and no cost ways to tap into this market by teaching courses on your own site or through popular sites like Udemy or iTunes U.See More
"I would say somewhat B, but F as well.
I tend to set goals and follow them as far as they take me. Usually, a new direction has opened up where that goal is no longer relevant and I don't always set that next goal and work purposefully toward…"
"Adam, I think you hit the nail on the head when you refer to this process as a continuum. With each step you take, a whole new view opens up and you can see things you haven't seen before. It is like walking through a forest. Each step provides…"
Thanks for joining Strengthen My Spiritual Life. I feel honored that you have joined our group and look forward to hearing/reading more about how we can help each other. I see you live in Ohio. That's cool because my parents live in Ohio as well -- in the city of Lima not too far from you!

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.
One thing I noticed on your profile is are good at coaching and advising. Those are two very useful competencies, especially together.
Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!
Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:
Hi Nick -- Welcome to the 48 Days community. We're glad you joined.
