Blogging did three things:
- Kept me accountable
- Organized my reference material, findings, and thoughts
- Shared said information with others who also want to learn
I want to do the same with my entrepreneurial journey. Maybe it will help others learn. Though, I’m not committing to blogging everyday.
Getting Priorities Straight
Normally, I go immediately into coding after my morning routine. But I wanted to get my priorities straightened out. To help with prioritization, I journaled for a bit on 750words.com before starting work.
After reflecting and brainstorming, I settled on this half fleshed out 30 day goal:
- Start selling on Ebay
- Use the money I make to test business ideas through fake ads
- Once I settle on an idea, continue to use Ebay to fund the business
I want to go with a small business idea that’s easy to start. Like one-on-one services or group events. Then scale the business up. The business ideas I came up with all revolve around my passions: food, fitness, health, or lucid dreaming. And of course I can utilize my new found tech skills.
For the next 5 days, I plan to work on Ebay. Made my first listing today. I reached out to an experienced Ebay-er for advice.
I worked on my helpmecode project by writing an article on how to use the #helpmecode hashtag.
What Could I Have Done Better?
I felt tired today. Because I felt tired, laziness ensued and I went on social media more than necessary. But, I was also productive on social media, so it wasn’t all that bad.
I think I was tired because I ate late meals the last few nights. Late meals raise my heart rate while sleeping. I’m back to fasting after 5pm. With this adjustment, hopefully, my sleep will improve.
