It all starts with a dream.
Five years ago I began to dream a new dream. I wanted to become a coach, helping people with their finances, careers and personal development.
Over the next year I narrowed down my coaching offerings to focus on just work and careers. I had experience helping people with work related issues and decided to start there. So I registered my business with my state. Enough with the planning, time to get started.
While continuing to work at my day job, I worked on my business on the side. Early on, I listed my business on Google and found I was able to rank consistently in the top five coaches when someone searched locally for a career coach. After six months, I landed my first paying client.
Eventually, I began to write a book based on the material I created and was able to get a well known career blogger to write a blurb for it. In October of 2011, I published it on Amazon through CreateSpace. After nine months, I sold my first copy online.
All this took place over a period of around three years. And as I mentioned earlier, I kept my day job as I worked on my coaching business and book.
During the next year, my focus shifted from coaching and turned to blogging. After getting advice from someone that worked with best selling authors and reading Michael Hyatt’s book, Platform, I decided to focus on building my platform online to pursue another dream of becoming a best selling author.
As I look over these last five years, I now see that I got it backwards. Although what we are talking about is not black and white, it would have made more sense to start with blogging.
If I would have started blogging five years ago and really focused on building my platform, I would have had a better shot at getting a book publishing deal (which is a good step, for me, on the road to becoming a best selling author). Then, over time, I would have built an audience to offer my coaching services to.
So why didn’t I start with blogging and not coaching? I didn’t know what I know now.
What You Can Learn From My Experience
What is your dream? You may want to be an author, blogger or coach, like me. Or maybe, you want to be something totally different.
Whatever your dream is, it is going to take time. And usually the bigger the dream, the longer it takes. [Tweet “Doing something great does not happen overnight. It takes years. @drewtewell”]
So if you have big dreams remember:
To do something great you have to become someone great.
Anyone that tells you something different is selling something.
Don’t buy it.
