It’s days and weeks like the past few that remind me why I love being a “Streamer”. I’ve been working like crazy, and have had my head down without much interaction with anyone.
Why do I love what I do? Because, I know that all this workload (for this project) will eventually come to an end. I’ll be back to my old self, and playing around on Facebook soon.
Plus: All this should (nothing is ever a guarantee) bump up my “cred“.
CRED? What the heck is that?
Why should I worry about my Cred? It has been one of this years goals to step outside of my comfort zone and get out of my hidey-hole (home office). This is on my list-o-stuff to accomplish this year (2014) and I’ve had to figure out how to make it happen.
It’s not about proving that I’m honest, trustworthy and helpful. I already know that about myself.
It’s not about being everywhere online that I can possible be (time suck but so worth it) and help everyone I possible can.
It’s about getting personal. One on one – Face to face. Yep, I needed to UP my face time.
Not only attending live events – where I meet and interact with incredible people, but also upping my “cred” to a point where I’m being asked to speak at events.
One Tiny Part Of My Cred To-Do List
Revamping and Re-focusing this very website. The DebraConrad.com website has been around for a long time. I go through stages of never working on it at all (for a few years at a time) because I’m so focused on other things. My error.
This website is my name… for crying out loud. If someone is searching online for me.. they would see a ghost-town of tumbleweeds and cobwebs.
I’ve had several butt kicking about this fact, and had to take time to rectify. If I’m going to keep up my “cred” – where better than to make sure my own name website is always active with what I’m working on and sharing.
New Project Takes A Bunch Of Heavy Lifting
I’m working on a new project, (sorry I can’t tell you what) that’s going to rock! It’s so flipping huge that it’s taking a ton of heavy work every day, and yet I know what the end game is and it will be worth all my sweat (yes, I have times I’m sweating bullets over this one).
This project is really a sum of all the things I’ve learned over my 10+ years of creating my online business. I’m so excited about the way my own business has taken this sudden (because we small businesses can turn on a dime) turn and given me clarity.
I talk about internet marketing and product development on this website often. It’s the way I can create my multiple streams of online income and feel safe that my income will never dry up.
Why do I spend so much time making sure I get that message across? Well… if you have all your efforts focused on one stream of income (Amazon, eBay, affiliate marketing, book publishing, product creation etc. ) you will not have a safety net. Of course we can all build up our savings safety net, but I don’t want to ever HAVE to dip into my savings just because I’m an idiot. (Harsh but true)
That’s exactly what this new project is all about. One great big project that is not only helping me get my focus (groove) back, but also makes me so excited to share with You!
It’s so hard for me to hold back anything, I’m not real good at keeping it to myself.
I hope you have big plans for the rest of this year and are looking several years ahead,
p.s. Of course, all this new focus has taken it’s tole. I have had to strip off my calendar so many things I had planned to do this year, because they are not “fitting in” with my new plans. It’s okay, it’s just going to take time to really evaluate every single tiny detail and put what works in the plan, and the rest doesn’t not sit in the “someday-maybe” pile – It Just Goes Away.
