Guess what I am giving myself for my Birthday?
My birthday is coming at the end of November and I have been thinking about doing something really audacious, a real BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL (BHAG) to both celebrate my birthday and grow my businesses. I have long considered myself to be a big thinker… I am saying this for no other reason than to point out that big means BIG!
So, what am I giving myself for my birthday? How about one new income site a day for 30 days… yes, thirty new sites designed to provide value for my customers, subscribers, and followers. I am pulling together 30 of my best unused domain names and a couple that I picked up from the best aged domain source and putting sites on them in November.
I am a big believer in the idea of practicing what I preach and I preach two core concepts, think big and take one daily action that brings you closer to your ultimate goal. As I thought about what I could do to make the month special (I usually don’t), I felt that this would be the best way to provide value for others, lead by example, and advance 30 steps closer to my ultimate objective.
There are several objectives being met through this crazy “little” project:
1. Take massive daily action to grow a sustainable business
2. Fully leveraging my assets… these are really great domains
3. Solving problems and providing value for my customers and members
4. Proving to myself that I can focus on daily actions and create something significant
I will blog about this daily in order to share each new site with you and certainly share a business lesson or two at the same time. About one one third of these sites are partially finished, so in a few cases you may have seen the site before, unaware that it really wasn’t finished. A site is not complete unless it is properly structured, optimized for SEO, loaded with value, and fully monetized to ensure that you provide the value that leads to a successful website.
Today, I shared this project with the attendees and 6 members have agreed to become my daily accountability partners, it is great to make your big goals public for this purpose. Kaye Towne, Lael Johnson, Laurie Shepherd, Lori Sivage, Marilyn Martin, and Kay Brasher will encourage me and nudge me along… I am very grateful for their support and friendship.
Please be sure to follow me over the next 30 days and I hope you will take the time to visit each site and share your comments on the site or below the blog post. I am here to help you succeed and I believe this very public BHAG will prove to be educational.
Have a blessed day!
