It is here! Day 90, and I am sort of in disbelief that this challenge is done. I am preparing a ‘Challenge Summary’ that I will post very soon detailing all of the things that I learned, the money I invested, approximate hours that I put into it, and where I will go from here.
It’s Not Over!
The 90 Day Challenge itself is over, however my vision for achieving job-ending income is nowhere near over. In fact, it has strengthened as I gained knowledge and experience through my efforts to hit that goal.
I have not yet hit the monetary goal that I set. I created that ‘stretch’ goal with the purpose of making me push beyond anything I had done before. It was not impossible, but it was unlikely that I could hit it in 90 days. Putting my all into working to make that goal happen did 2 things:
1) I learned what worked and advanced my business
2) I learned what did not work to move me toward that end goal
Knowing what works means that I will invest time and money in those areas. Knowing what did not work makes me examine why those actions did not produce the intended results. An unintended outcome doesn’t mean you have failed, it means that you have learned! The key is to take what you learned and use it to take action to move you forward. That’s progress.
Within a the next week, you will see the detailed ‘Challenge Summary’ post. After that post, I will be doing shorter term goals with the ‘vision’ still being to hit $4,000 month after month. That ‘end goal’ or ‘vision’ as I will refer to it from now on, is still what I am aiming for. I will be setting some short term goals, which I will call ‘targets’ that I will work toward in 30 day increments.
For example, my first Target will be achieving 1,000 subscribers. I currently have 202, so I need almost 800 to get there. I’ll work through a 30 day plan to get there, and I’ll post about it along the way.
Live Case Study
This blog remains a live case study detailing the journey to self-employment and financial freedom. Stick around, because you will continue to learn WITH me. I promise you that!
