Video Torture

To all the wonderful members of the Quickstart Challenge Community who visited my very first post, a heartfelt thank you. These two little words are simply inadequate to express just how much your comments have meant to me. You have encouraged and supported me with such generosity that I finally believe I will be able to create an online business.

I’m afraid I have only managed to visit some of your blogs so far, as I am suffering beginner overload! But I promise to be over your way soon.

In the meantime, I have been on a mission today to catch up with Week 2 of the Quickstart Challenge – the Tough with a capital T; yes, that’s right, the knee trembling, heart stopping Video Post!!!

It’s been a Sunday of laughter and tears trying to record a tiny, itsy, bitsy, 1 Minute and 17 Seconds of video promoting my QSC experience. It took me about two hours of fussing with light, poor sound and my mind going blank every time the Record button was pressed. By the time it was over, I was overcharged with adrenalin and had to go for a long walk by the beach just to get it out of my system.

Watching my cringeworthy performance now, with a voice that sounds like I’m lost inside a tin can and a body posture similar to a robot, I think I’d better stick to writing!

Now, my QSC friends, I know you’ve been through the same video torture trial, so we are bonded by our group struggle together.

I await your comments and don’t worry, I want the truth…really, I mean it…well, okay you can lie just a little bit…

Late Bloomer

Hi QuickStart Community,

This is my very first post to the world…amazing!

I’ve just started the Quickstart Challenge 2.0 with Dean Holland, Craig Crawford and JF Garsula this week. Yes, I know, it started April 7th and now its already the 23rd of April…so what have I been doing???

I’m worried…about telling you my story and looking a bit silly; or maybe very silly…depends how you look at these things. So here goes:

At age 48, let’s just say I haven’t exactly made all the right moves…Divorced after fifteen years, with no home to call my own, I seriously need to get some cash.

In 2012, I started researching how to make a living on the internet. I guess I was a little desperate to find the magic solution to internet riches, so much so I’m now twenty thousand in debt on my Mastercard – not quite sure how it happened. I told myself I have to ‘spend money to make money’, and in a little over two years the debts have started to pile up, but I’m yet to make a single dollar in cyberspace. Pretty sad huh?

Somewhere along the way, I forgot you can’t just buy IM courses and software, you’ve actually got to take action! Otherwise, as Dean says in the first video, you won’t make any money.

It makes complete sense when you think about it, but I’ve found this so very hard to do, I don’t know why. Even now I’ve struggled to start this blog and write this post. I always begin with a great idea, but can’t seem to get past the ‘research’ stage.

I really love Dean’s approach in the Quickstart Challenge and its a fantastic opportunity to stop asking why and start creating an online business.

My goal is to make that first dollar on the internet – how sweet that will be?! How will it happen? When will it happen? I don’t know yet. In fact, I haven’t a clue…its time to stop asking why and when and just…do…it…yeah!

I’ve had a look at some of the blogs everyone has set up and I find it really scary…you’re all so good at this stuff already! So if you have any words of wisdom for this late bloomer, I could really use your advice.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read my story. Any tips you have to offer will be very welcome!
