DAY 008

I'm going to let you in on something.

Right now,

I'm pretty sure what I'm going to move forward with.

But, but...

I'm going to hold off on revealing it - until I go through the IDEATION for all the options.

(I've expanded the options a bit from what I started with)

โŒ Subscription as a Service: ๐Ÿ’ฒ Price point ($7 - $19) | e.g. Paid Newsletter

โ” Subscription as a Service: ๐Ÿ’ฒ+ Price point ($49-$199) | e.g. Paid Membership

โ” Subscription as a Service: ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ Price point ($799+) | e.g. Community

โŒ Subscription as a Service: ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ Do-it-for-you services ($899 - $3500+) | SEO services

โ” One time purchase - e.g. swipe file, manual, roadmap

โ” One time purchase or Membership - course/s (just no, but I'll leave it up here)

So far, I have eliminated two.

๐Ÿ’ก One important criteria I think about as I go through these options is that I have to honestly like what I choose. Some people may not care if they like the business they decide to build, but for me it's important. If I don't love what I do, it will get really difficult to keep doing it.

So I ask myself:

Would I love doing this - every day, any day, in the long run?

If the answer is yes - I'm good to proceed.
If the answer is no - take it off the list.

Listen to your gut.

Fear can rear its head here and make you choose an option that you don't actually enjoy doing at all - it doesn't matter how good at it you are.


I hinted at, well, I think I announced this yesterday...

I have decided NOT to pursue the marketing niche.

It became very clear that it was not the path I wanted to pursue. (see above ^) Although I'm a very skilled marketer, my heart is not in it. (more on this later)

The new (and obvious) direction is this - this thing that I'm typing right now. Documenting the journey of creating a business, step-by-step.

Makes so much sense.

Why would I build a second content stream, say, for marketing?

This is the content I share.
This is the journey, with its twists and turns.
What is the "product" this leads to?
Let's find out.

Branding ideas are starting to twirl in my head.

๐Ÿ“ I was a bit worried that it would take me a long time to get to this point, to figure out the direction, much longer than the seven days that I had given myself on Day 000. But it happened.


โณ TIME = 8 hours | total = 40 hours
๐Ÿงพ COST = $108 | total = $108
๐Ÿ’ฐ REVENUE: $0

If your heart is not in it, it can become really challenging to keep going. Choose what you love.
