    5 things you can do to move past your hurdles


    Courage to do it

    You are ready to do this with the current skill set you have right now.  This is the perfect time.
    Right now!
    It’s the perfect time to help someone who is just a few steps behind you.   Step out in faith – the path is there.

    Ask for help.

    There are people all around you who can help with those little things that may have kept you frozen in time.  Maybe it’s a technical issue (“I’m technically challenge – how could I possibly hold a webinar?”) or maybe it’s related to money (“I need money to create a prototype, or hire a designer to make the perfect website).  But remember, if you’re asking friends and family for advice on your next project, don’t take their response to heart.  Listen to your market for this type of advice.


    Take Imperfect Action

    Perfect is another conversation I’m passionate about, but I’ll just quickly say this.  Being perfect is a myth.  Taking imperfect action will move you forward like nothing else.  Take a risk, test the market, see what people really want, and “perfect” things as you go along.

    Focus on your #1 most profitable idea

    Examine what you’re working on in business right now.  Ask yourself where you’re spending the most time and also where the money is coming from in the easiest way.  Focus on creating more of this “easy flowing money”.  Stick with this project, finish it, sell a few copies and then be open to change.  You can always perfect it later.

    And have fun!

    Most of us got into business to have more freedom and enjoy life.  If you’re not already taking time to have fun, make the time.  It’s not proven science, but stories are told over and over again of money being made right after, or during some kind of completely fun event that had absolutely nothing to do with working in, or on, your business.  Give it a try! Go have fun.

Thank you for reading this series. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed writing it for you. Please share with a friend who needs to hear this today! Thanks,
