If you are like most small business owners and entrepreneurs I come alongside, you are already a high achiever. You are committed to being the best you can be. You are determined to do what is required to see results for your efforts.
You see beyond what is before you. Like many of my clients, you recognize a website is a key element in achieving your vision.
You have the energy, creativity, and stamina. But there is something in the way, isn’t there?
It feels like endless hoops to go through. Each step is like a stone crumbling into pebble after pebble after pebble. Launching your website seems like a race where the finish line keeps moving. Support is evasive – if at all.
I’ve been there, too.
I know what it feels like to question how something that is marketed as being so easy can be so baffling. I know what it feels like to have your vision shredded bit-by-bit by an inability to corral the maze of loose ends. For years, I struggled to champion it all. And my frustration resulted in upsets. The lack of practical instruction and support was frustrating.
The turnaround for me came when an associate pulled me aside for a frank chat. He recognized my frustration. He saw how much wasted effort was pulling me away from time that could be better invested on my business. His advice, “If you want a Do-It-Yourself website then get some coaching from someone who’s done it.”
In that moment, I realized that was the answer. Despite all of the marketing hype, launching a website requires key organization, planning, and implementation strategy. I acted on his advice.
That was in 2008. Today, a decade plus later, I am now the one to come alongside entrepreneurs, commission salespeople, network marketers, non-profit organizations, churches, and many others as their WordPress coach. I do for them what my guide did for me all those years earlier.
I still own a number of successful websites. I write eBooks, digital learning modules, and related training on how determined achievers can effectively launch their online presence. And, like my associate suggested, I recommend contracting with someone like me who will come alongside, provide guidance, and then step-aside.
Launching a website to achieve your dreams and vision is not a magic trick. I am certainly no superhero. I listened to the advice I was given. I contracted with someone for guidance. When I was able to forge ahead on my own, he moved on. That’s now what I do. Clear away the pebbles, remove the big stones, provide instruction, and then move on.
My biggest joy, seeing the people I come alongside thrive after I step aside.
