Blog post at Productive Superdad : On the 31st of December, 2010, I published my first post on this blog. Ever since then I have been blogging on a frequent basis...
3. Get a coach from the get-go
This is one of the things I wish I had done when I started blogging: Hired a coach.
Although I hired some temporary help when launching my blog in 2011 (and to which I was happy with), I still wanted something more.
In January 2012 this changed, as I started working with Danny Iny and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Coaching has made a huge difference in my productivity as I’m able to focus on things that are truly important.
It’s also a great way to test new ideas: I might have a crazy plan in my head which I pitch to Danny. If he thinks the idea is not so great, I put that on hold or get it off of my list completely. This is a huge time saver and I can keep on track without any extra distractions.
Although coaching is expensive, it’s also a much faster way to get to your destination. Besides, you can rarely get to your goal by buying a $19 e-book.
Here's the comment I left:
What an incredible job you have done with your blogs in the past two years! You are so right about the hard work that goes into the art of blogging and it’s really a smart idea to get help right up front. Working with Danny is a plus and having a system in place is also key.
I don’t know what I would do with out wonderful guest contributors like yourself that keep a constant stream of value-added blog posts flowing on my blog.
Thanks for all you do and best wishes for another “productive” year in 2013!
