TAS 200 : Simplify The Process and Take Action (Your Success Plan)

This episode of the podcast is pretty special because it’s only been a bit longer than a year that Scott has been publishing the show and he’s already reached 200 episodes – and for this episode he wanted to do something special. That’s why he’s doing something a bit different – a solo show – that covers the information he spoke at the Rocky Mountain Resellers conference in Denver, Colorado at the end of April, 2016. It’s a motivational, inspirational, get started talk that will give you practical ways to get started making money online.

You’ve got to be clear on why you want to build a business.

Everybody has dreams of doing something of their own, making a product, running a shop of some kind, making a business work on their own. But very few of them who get started actually keep going long term. Why is that? Because they don’t have a strong enough sense of WHY they are doing what they are doing. It has to be about more than the money, more than the success, more than the creative outlet it might be. You’ve got to have a “why” that will motivate you to keep going when you hit obstacles and difficulties. On this episode Scott goes deep into the issue of “why” and gives you practical ways to develop your own “why” that will fuel you long term.

A key element in your success is keeping short term goals in mind.

When Scott was a young man he worked with his father in his construction business. He did well, worked hard, and loved the work, but he knew in a short amount of time that he didn’t want to do that kind of work long term. That’s when Scott and his wife started figuring out how much cash it would take for him to step out of that role in his father’s company and work full time in his own business. That’s an example of a short term goal that gives you something to aim at and move toward. You need to know where you’re going if you are going to get there.

You don’t need to have everything figured out – just enough to get you started.

Many people never start a business because they think they have to have all the details figured out before they can get started. The problem is that they never will get everything figured out because life and business don’t work that way. On this episode of the podcast Scott is going to walk you through how to figure out the basics of how to simply get started and then pivot and make adjustments as you are going. It’s the best way to build a business because it takes advantage of momentum and enables you to learn in the crucible of actually doing it. You’re going to learn a lot from Scott’s experience and insights on this episode, so be sure you listen.

There’s lots of power in focusing on the stage you’re at instead of moving ahead.

Nobody can deny that there are thousands of things to learn as you build a business of your own. It’s true. But you don’t have to learn all of them at once. That’s the beauty of the things Scott has to share on this episode. Scott talks about real life examples of how he’s learned only the things he’s needed for the project he’s working on at the time. That enables you to specialize in what’s most important at the moment and to make adjustments to your learning and processes as you go. You’re able to keep moving without getting sidetracked and make the most of the time you’re dedicating to the business. On this episode Scott shares his insights about how anyone can get started on their own business dream.
