WordPress, Hosting, idea, how to Start, how to start online
Sunday 20th – 28th of January 2018
I hope you’ve all been having a great week.
This is something I’m going to be sharing with you each week, on a Sunday.
What I’m up to, on what motivates me, and things I am enjoying,
I hope you enjoy
Here’s your weekly dose of “Weekly 5.”
In case you’ve missed it
Last week I was talking to three clients about where to start. I see this is a huge problem for most people, that they don’t know where to begin.
Most new entrepreneurs think what they should do is find a business model that works and copy from it. In some cases that might work, but not all. What works well as a business is that if you are passionate about something, something that you are actually interested in, like sport, movies, coffee it could be anything.
That is where this talk of “the riches are in the niches” comes in.
Find something that you enjoy and build a business on that.
How I help people find their thing is that, I ask them to draw a bubble and write “idea” in the centre of it.
Then I ask them to set a time for 1 min. During the timer they would write down hobbies, interests and things they like coming from the bubble.
Once the timers up, then they stop.
If they went on any longer it would be a waste of time because if it took them over a minute to think of what they are interested in, it means they aren’t that interested enough.
Then with that information written down they will be able to see a few opportunities. Now for the fun part.
What they should do now is circle each idea they wrote down and do the same thing as they did before.
This will give them sub-niches.
I find that doing this it will make coming up with a business idea a lot easier then spawning one out of thin air.
I was caught in this circle until I drew out my idea bubble. Now I have business and a forward plan.
Let me know how you get on, I’d love for you to share your idea bubbles below. You can then use this post to come back a year later to see how far you’ve gotten.
What I’m doing at the moment
The only way to become successful is to put in the work and if you know me this is something I talk about all the time.
It’s amazing how many people I’ve spoken to, that ask me for my help on stuff that I think that is quite simple. Like setting up a WordPress website or Hosting a domain name.
By putting in the work over the years I’ve become a pro at doing stuff like this. It’s amazing really how much I know that I didn’t realise.
We all have skills like these that we spent years mastering. Maybe your awesome at building furniture or an expert in astrology. whatever it is, there is opportunity in everything and money to be made from all I spend at least half my time on my phone learning about new things. This week I’m bouncing back and fourth from copywriting (as this month is copywriting month) and day-trading. Two very interesting topics and completely different as I don’t need to know copywriting if I knew how to day trade and visa versa. It’s just I enjoy each topic and find them very interesting.
So, I search online for blogs, groups, newsletters and YouTube to master each skill. Unknowing to myself I’m becoming a professional at each. The most important take away from this is that I don’t just read or watch what’s going on, I put it into action., I practice.
One of the top or most interesting posts of the week.
Jason Elliot posted this during the week and it got a great response.

A tip or advice from an Influencer
– Scott Voelker –
I was listening to Scott’s podcast “The Amazing Seller” this week, where Scott talks mostly about Amazon FBA.
Before he got into what he usually talks about, Scott had a bit of a rant. His rant was about fake friends.
He was saying a neighbor asked his wife to meet up sometime for a chat. Ok, that was nice. To meet up with new people and make new friends is awesome but when she did she was basically pitched to buy a product.
Scott was so annoyed with this and I agree with him.
What this person did was pure fake. They came across as if they wanted to be friends but went straight into a pitch.
I’ve come across people like this also in my own town.
What these type of people should understand is that if you want to sell something you have to get the person to like the product first and not be a pushy seller.
You need to share with the buyer first, value, advice and a why. Not a pitch!
