Hey there friend, Welcome to my Post 😊
I hope it finds you well and enjoying an awesome week!
All week I have been seeing this word, enough times that it has grabbed my attention.
I know when this happens to me I need to take note.
Does this kind of thing happen to you?
It’s not that I have been inconsistent, I haven’t but maybe it was about to kick in 🤪 and if it were going to, I think I know why.
It is a pertinent word for this stage of my journey because I am beginning to build momentum with many fundamentals now in place.
In the latest training session we had this morning, we talked quite a bit about emails. I will talk more about this in my next post.
In our next training session we are moving into the subject of Traffic.
That word Traffic makes me feel NeRvOuS!! and it feels HUGE
Logically I know, it is because it is unknown territory for me, somewhere I have never been, another foreign place but a more scary place and because that signals to my brain that….
Sh#! is about to get real! 🤣
Dean talks a lot about this because he really struggled at the beginning too. He had all the same trepidations and they felt HUGE to him. So when I listen to him talk about it and how he overcame those trepidations, it calms me.
The reality is…..
What we can conjure up in our minds is going to happen when we begin using a traffic source, and we put ourselves out there, becoming totally visible in the online world, vs what will actually happen are not the same…by far.
Even though I know that, I can go from feeling calm, then I’m not, I’m nervous and feeling a bit sick, then I am calm again then nervous…. so on and so forth – it’s nuts!!
But…..the struggle is real.
Still, struggle or not I am not going to let my nervousness and that negative dialogue that plays out in my head win….not anymore.
I need to stay consistent (there’s that word) keep moving forward step by step and push through.

Through the week I have been working on the homework Dean had set for those of us involved in the amazing programme, The Beginners Advantage.
It was quite full on, learning how to set up a complete funnel from scratch and then copying that funnel into our WordPress Website/blog.
The result is titled Your Free Gift.

I have read about funnels before, enough to know generally what they are and what their purpose is, but I would have had no iota of an idea how on earth you would go about building one.
Going through the training felt hard…actually, hard is probably not the right word, foreign is more accurate, a bit like visiting a country you have never been to before where they speak a language you do not understand.
Anyway, on Tuesday morning I was doing about an hour’s work before I headed off to my 9 to 5 job for the day.
I wanted to finish the part of the process I was working on so I could start the next part when I got home that night, but about 10 minutes before I needed to shut my laptop I hit a bump.
I had followed the steps exactly but my result on my screen was NOT what was in the training and I had no idea why.
I sat there looking at it for about the next 5 minutes, but I could not immediately see what was wrong.
I had no more time, I had to shut my laptop, it was time to leave the house.
I didn’t bother me through the day but I did think quite a few times geez I hope I can sort that out without too much bother – fingers crossed!
That night when I was able to look at it again, I saw that Dean had added a note about an update to the system that changed things slightly, so I went through it again using the update and it worked.
So it wasn’t so bad after all.
Once I was done with setting it all up the last part was to test the funnel and see if I had built it correctly, If I had it would work perfectly.
It was a bit of a hold-your-breath moment as I tested it but it did work and perfectly and I was so pleased with myself I have to tell you.
That’s another Win into my Jar of Wins I am collecting!!
As I was working through it, it was starting to become clear that in very basic terms you are putting steps together in a sequential order.
When a person clicks on a tab or link it sets off a set of actions that will take place in the order you set.
With a bit of practice and repetition it will become pretty easy to put a basic funnel together and once you have that down pat you can be clever and add lots of bells and whistles.
If you are building your own online business, I highly recommend learning to do this at the beginning of your journey, at the very least learning the fundamentals, it can only ever serve you well.
This in itself can become another source of income for you if you decided to dive in and become highly skilled at it.
You could become sought after!
Now there’s a thought 🤔
Well that brings me to the end of how my week has been…
My funnel is built and on we go into Traffic…
Onwards and upwards!
Thanks so much for reading, I appreciate you took the time and I hope it was helpful to you.
If you would like to comment, I would love to know your thoughts and please feel free to share my post!
Have a great weekend and week ahead.
See you in my next post…coming soon!
