Sure I destroyed my guitar at every concert, but it was okay, because I’d always get a shiny new one the very next day. Patti Smith
And so it goes on.
I had recently made the transition to a full time internet marketer. I was fortunate to work with an outstanding mentor who truly cares about his students. Being an established player in the IM industry his focus is on creating products and recruiting affiliates to promote them (of which he has hundreds).
This is a effective strategy to catapulting a product launch into the best seller list. It’s a well intentioned, sleekly marketed and highly effective strategy.
Is it the only one? I don’t think so.
In parallel I purchased a blogging authority course from the outstanding Ryan Deiss, as well as a slew of WSOs dealing with anything from How to Rank your Video on the 1st page of Google to the latest WordPress SEO Theme.
Have I lost my focus?
Not in the slightest.
Has it given me a new perspective about this fascinating industry?
Has it pushed me out of my comfort zone, made me try new hacks, tried me to the limit, allowed me to connect with a number of bright young inventors?
You see dear reader, life is what you make of it. If you choose to be distracted, baffled and confused by a slew of new technologies than it is exactly that – a choice.
Can doctors ignore the latest techniques and innovations that befall their profession? I don’t think so. And neither can I.
Quite simply, I cannot afford to fail. I want to know everything that moves, breathes and pulsates in this industry. And I suggest that you do the same.
As always I’d love to hear your thoughts.
