Acquiring Local Blog/Uncategorized/Creating My First Email List

If You Build it, They Will Come

I'm sure that we have all heard the phrase, "if you build it, they will come." I hope that is the case.  I have been messing around with the Clickfunnels platform, trying to wrap my head around broadcasts, email sequences, building templates and so much more.  While this has been uncomfortable being completely in the dark on what steps to take next, it does feel good to be stretching myself to do more.  

Today I set up my first email sequence that is triggered when the newsletter is subscribed to. Right now, when it is just my second email and my mom on the list, it seems like all of the work that I am doing may just be for nothing.  As that thought creeps in, I think about Myron Golden one of my favorite online business mentors. He teaches Bible, business, and their correlation.  He has many videos talking about how when you do work, it will always produce results.  It may not produce results that you can see however. The work you do on something else may be working on you instead.  I find that extremally encouraging that when I work towards my goals, I either get closer to their completion, or become more like the person that can reach the goal I am aiming for.

Here is Myron Talking about this point: 

I hope that the work I am doing does what I expect it to, but I know that even if nobody ever sees this, I will be better suited to accomplish my goals. I understand my weaknesses and see how doing the work that no one sees helps make you the "overnight success" that everyone is attempting to be.  Another one of my favorite speakers online is Alex Hormozi.   He talks about his Rocky cut scene that made him successful, and if that's where I'm at.  I can only be grateful that I'm putting in my time now while I am young. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this.  If you want help me reach my personal goal of 2000 email subs, please add yourself to my list and share it with anyone you might think would get value from it. If you want to be super special, let Myron know that I sent you by leaving a comment on one of his videos, I'll be on the lookout for them.
