Why Are You Waiting?
Are you put off creating an online product or programme because you think somebody else has something similar? That somebody went there before you?
Well, today’s interviewee Christie Halmick waited nine full months after a friend told her that the programme she wanted to create had already been “done” by someone else.
But she kept coming back to the fact that her clients kept asking HER for this information. (hint: if your customers keep asking the same questions, it’s time to think about how you can respond to that!) And a year after first conceiving the idea, Christie has launched her PDF Workshop.
Listen in while she talks to me about her journey and the lessons along the way…
Set The Date!
Christie isn’t the only one of us who battles her inner perfectionist. Setting a deadline and selling her programme in advance means she is holding herself accountable to complete. Success happens sooner because setting a date (and those paying customers!) means you WILL get it done.
Putting boundaries around what she’s including in the programme and not responding to all the things she could add in is helping Christie to keep this first version of her workshop manageable. She could add in more. But she’d rather do this well and re-assess for round 2.
Start Where You Are – You Know Enough
I was really surprised when I asked Christie whether she thought being the expert at what she did gave her an advantage when it came to launching her programme. Listen in to the end to hear how she responds!
I’d love to know what this sparked for you. Are you waiting for something? Does this inspire you to start sooner? Leave me a comment below!
