Acceptance and Dream Big

Acceptance (Entrepreneur Journal – 12/2/2019)

Welcome to the December 2, 2019, edition of my entrepreneur journal. You can find my previous journal entries here.

I had another slow week. I took a break from writing last week so that I could spend Thanksgiving with family and friends. One Thanksgiving lunch and one Thanksgiving dinner (both with pie) later, and I’m ready to get back at it.

Not to worry, though. I still got some work done. I’m up to my armpits in SEO. I also set up a Quora account and started answering some questions. Check out my profile here.

Enough rambling. Here are my updates for the week.

Income Stream 1: Strength and Reason

What I Accomplished This Week:

  1. I only published one post this week. You can check it out here.
  2. SEO: I kept plugging away SEO.
    1. I’m diving deep into keyword research using Jaaxy, which I have access to through Wealthy Affiliate[affiliate link]. I’m also using Ubersuggest]. Keyword research by itself is time-consuming. I hope that it’s one of those tasks where the upfront effort pays off in the long-term.
    2. I’m learning how to optimize HTML title tags for SEO. Ahrefs and Neil Patel have articles packed with info.
  3. Wealthy Affiliate: I worked through more lessons on Wealthy Affiliate [affiliate link]. I’ve finished four modules with Module 5 is on-deck for this week. WA has been an excellent resource for getting Strength and Reason going.
  4. Social Media: I’ve been more active on Twitter. The good news is that I saw some traffic to Strength and Reason from there. It’s easy to get lost in the Twitter-sphere. So, I’m keeping it to 15 minutes twice a day. Click the link to the right to follow me.
  5. Planning: I planned out the next month of blog posts. Informative and fun. I guarantee it.

To-Do Next Week:

  1. Publish this journal entry: Strength and Reason Entrepreneur Journal – December 2, 2019.
  2. Publish a second weekly article.
  3. Continue working on SEO. My biggest bang for the buck will come from improving search engine rankings. That’s my priority.
  4. Work on the Best of the Best page.
  5. A picture is worth a thousand words, so I’m going to enlist my GF to snap a few pics of me to post on my About page. I’ll put on a suit to prove I clean up well.
  6. Wealthy Affiliate has an affiliate program. I’m going to work on a review post for WA.

What I Learned:

  1. SEO is a must. Word of mouth will only take me so far.
  2. As much as I don’t look forward to it, social media is also a must. I’m a late-comer to sharing my life online. So, I’m feeling out the whole thing. I won’t share much from a personal perspective. Instead, I’ll keep it focused on the blog.

Income Stream 2: Ecommerce

What I Accomplished This Week:

  1. Nothing to report here. Strength and Reason is eating up most of my time.

To-Do Next Week:

  1. I plan to spend at least one day doing product research.
  2. Continue with Freedom Ticket training.

What I Learned:

  1. I need to work on time management to make sure I keep each of my income streams moving forward.

Income Stream 3: Gig Work

What I Accomplished This Week:

  1. I’m keeping an eye on Field Agent. But nothing jumped out at me, but I’m going to check it at least once a day.

To-Do Next Week:

  1. Sign up for Wag.

What I Learned:

  1. I need to work on time management to make sure I keep each of my income streams moving forward.

Acceptance

I’ve accepted that being a successful entrepreneur is going to take time. About a year before Strength and Reason starts to get some traction. Keep working, and success will come.
