I am going to venture out and say this will be WSO of the Year. It launches in about 8 hours but I already know its gonna sell like hotcakes because its easily worth 50x what they are asking for it!!!
So my wife and I were chatting today about how we were a bit bummed we didn’t get a white Christmas this year as we absolutely LOVE taking my daughter sledding each year. Well, someone was listening because our wishes were answered! I just peaked my head out (its just after 6am) and its snowing like crazy outside. It was 60+ degrees on Christmas so this is quite the happy surprise. Here’s a video for you! (Looked way better on my iPhone before I uploaded it)
I been winding down the last few days from a extremely busy and eventful year and I was inspired to write a post on my results from 2011. My whole reason for this is to show folks just how fast this business can change your life when you take massive action, care about your fellow man, and stay true to yourself.
This is in no way everything on my mind but just some key points I felt warranted mentioning.
April 2011 – My Start on Warrior Forum
Up until this point I had been quietly making money online through various tactics including both affiliate marketing and adsense. I had developed the ability to make a full time income online but was ready to take it to the next level through product creation.
In order to accomplish that goal I hired a personal coach, Jarrett Stevenson, who showed me the ropes of creating my own informational products. It was in no way an all inclusive training but it definitely gave me everything I needed to get the ball rolling. Of all things Jarrett did for me he changed my mindset and that was PRICELESS.
I released my first product on Warrior Forum, AutoProfit Pirates. Contrary to popular belief it was not a huge hit out of the gate. In fact it was anything but. I sold 19 copies and bumped it three times which meant I actually lost money on it. I had poured my heart and soul into it and was just crushed at the result. If it hadn’t been for my insane determination to prove all my doubters wrong there is a good chance I would have given up right then and there.
Today – Where Am I Now?
Luckily for me I didn’t and I pushed forward eventually relaunching my WSO with a partner and securing WSO of the Day. Since that time I’ve released eight WSOs all of which have sold over 1,000 copies except for just one. Five of them were WSO of the Day and two of the WSO of the Week. All in all this led to a very solid six figure year for me.
That’s a far cray from the first one selling just 19 copies and crushing my spirits.
2012 – Where I’m Going!
In 2012 I have some very lofty goals but I know without a doubt I’ll hit every single one of them because I have taken the time to build a business and not just a fly by night operation. Sure, passing up the opportunity to squeeze every last dollar out of my WSOs and my list resulted in less income this year for me than I might have made otherwise but its led to me building a solid reputation in the online community both within the Warrior Forum and outside it.
I can’t stress this point enough folks. Recently while watching some training from Eben Pagan he made a comment “Short term results and long term results are almost always different and often times opposite.” Now, simply put “what tastes good in the belly today sours tomorrow.”
The marketers with short sighted mindsets who burn bridges/relationships today so they can make more money are the same marketers who will be broke and out of business tomorrow. Do not allow yourselves to sacrifice morals/ethics/or relationships for money. The truer you stay to yourself the further you will go in your market.
I hope that you will all be taking some time off for the holidays whether you celebrate Christmas or not. We all truly need/deserve time to ourselves. During my time off I am finalizing my goals/plans for 2012; I hope you will all take the time to do the same!
Happy Holidays Folks!
