You always hear people say you should stick with one thing and really focus on it until you make money. You also hear a lot of people saying not to “put all of your eggs in one basket.” This can really confuse a newbie…
When people ask me about this I usually say you should stick to something until you can make it work, but what then? Do you move on to something new or stick with what works?
I’m a bit odd in that I have to be involved in many projects or I get bored and don’t work at all. I figured this out early on.
Here is just a short list of some of the things I do:
- Freelance writing.
- Selling PLR.
- Niche sites promoting affiliate products.
- Creating my own products.
- Offline affiliate promotion.
- Kindle publishing.
Now, some of these I even have more than one site for. It keeps me busy for sure, but is it really the best way?
For me it is, but that doesn’t mean it is for everyone. I know some people that can’t focus on two parts of a project at the same time without getting overwhelmed.
I guess what I’m trying to say here, is that the key is finding what works for YOU. If you find that working on more than one projects keeps you from getting any of them done, it is time to step away from a few of them and focus on the one you see the most promise in. If you find yourself getting bored, maybe it is time to look in to trying something new.
One thing I HAVE learned from doing all of these different things is that you will pull different lessons from each adventure. Something you learn while writing your Kindle book could easily spark an idea for your blog. Something you learn over at Squidoo could give you inspiration for your own product.
Just remember that this is YOUR adventure and only you know what will work best for you. Make sure you are honest with yourself and what you really need to succeed.
