Okay folks, it’s time to get personal.
I recently joined a marketing challenge created by Dean Holland.
It is based around “challenges”.
And everyone is being ultra responsive about completing these challenges since we started the training (hint!).
The Video Challenge
The latest challenge was to create a video about the training.
No strict rules, just say you’re enrolled in the training, what do you expect to learn from it, stuff like that.
So far, I have seen VERY creative videos and other videos that maybe aren’t that good but nevertheless, people are taking MASSIVE action.
Me… I’m not very good at following step by step things.
I tend to check out what the goal is and then I do it MY WAY.
So I created my video.
Even though I DO mention Dean Holland’s Challenge, the video can be watched by anyone who wants to see what my current situation is.
Warning: There is absolutely ZERO sugar coating on this video.
The first step in making things right is accepting there’s a flaw so I’m GAME for this.
The video is unedited, the only thing I did to it was to take the original audio out and synchronize an audio file recorded with a lapel mic and an audio portable device.
Also, the video was not scripted (heck I don’t even know how to do that) so I missed important points like:
- money made so far
- how much have I invested online
- what the follow up plan is
- etc, etc
But it still provides a really “take no prisoners” breakdown of where I’m actually standing right now.
So Who The Heck Is Sergio Felix?
Have you seen how almost every guru has a very humorous story before becoming rich?
“I was living at my grandma’s”
“My girlfriend was paying for my tuition”
“I was maxed out on all my credit cards”
Well this is my “I was living under a bridge” story only that I’m still in a rags to rags story.
I’m sharing this with you now because I need to believe this in order to achieve it.
Not long ago I spoke about how I made $1,500 USD with just one offline client using WordPress and guess what?
That’s NOT the Internet Lifestyle.
That’s me doing a site for a client and it is lightyears away of what I want to do online.
I have also mentioned a few times how I made about $30,000 USD developing just one site… that’s STILL something I had to exchange my time for and made that money only once, so guess what?
Still… NOT the lifestyle I’m after.
Raw Uncut No BS Video
So here it is… are you ready for it?
Honestly, it is embarrassing as hell but making this public is the only way I actually make stuff happen.
Please… be real.
If you were able to watch the whole thing please let me know in the comments area (if you want).
If you couldn’t watch the video (for any reason) please do not pretend you did, that’s even worse than not leaving a comment. I’m a grown up and I know time is the least thing we have available online, I can take it. ;-)
Another thing you should know, is that I’m not aiming for guru level.
The only things I could be a guru about is playing my guitar to a drunk audience, playing fifa (football) on the PS3 against a drunk player and partying with drunk people.
That’s it. That’s my story. I embrace it.
And I hope my girlfriend doesn’t kill me now.
