There comes a time when you must accept the work you have put in, prepared all that you can, left your family well off for your time away and readied your men for all that may come ahead. Your weapons are broken in and set to defend, your armor is hardened for battle, you ask Njord to guide your ship and Odin to favor you should the need arise. You have your bows and arrows ready to pour down on enemies from your ship if there is no chance of talking first, you are a warrior, a Viking. It is time to take the leap and set sail!
Set Your Ship to Sail:
By this point in your online adventure you have:
- Paid for hosting, paid for a domain name and maybe some extras such as SSL Security.
- Designed your page, maybe something simple, maybe an online market style, maybe a blog, maybe a hybrid of sorts. Your page has something to look at!
- You have begun networking with like-minded people, learning from everyone what they have to offer, as well as sharing what you have to offer yourself.
- You have built your social media, maybe you are very active in them and have built them to a large extent. Maybe you are like me and terribly suck at staying active on your social media!
- You have started to build your Master Mind Group. You know who you want to work with and you have talked to them about your plans. They like the ideas and offer their assistance.
- You are ready to take off!
When you sit back and look at all you have done, you will realize you have put an immense effort in to your business. Maybe it’s not the best it could be. Maybe you could have done more, or should have done this instead of that. But it is OKAY! Do NOT stress yourself out over the imperfections.
Unless of course these imperfections prevent you from being able to take off….which is worst case scenario and highly unlikely..it is time.
Give The Battle-Cry and Ready Yourself:
Are you ready? Are you pumped?! Are you EXCITED?? WE CAME HERE TO EXPLORE! WE CAME HERE TO CONQUER AND TO GROW AND EXPAND!
We are NOT going to back down nor are we going to quit, turn our tails and head home before we have even taken off! It is time brothers and sisters to take a stand, raise your voice and PREPARE FOR YOUR DESTINY!
Now is the time. Advertise. Spread the word. Make yourself a nice business card with a decent logo, your website and contact information. Hand it out to the people you network with, hand it out to customers at your day job, just pass it around! Spread the word on social media, and by that I do NOT mean just on your own pages’ social media but also your PERSONAL accounts! Let your friends know, let your family know. Get them to read your blog, check out your products, offer discounts in exchange for honest reviews and feedback so you know what’s good and what’s bad. Build your FAQ list for your products, make it POP!
It’s now or never and we’re going to take off! Full force, do NOT STOP until you have reached your goals!
Work Hard, Live Strong, Set Sail and CONQUER!
