Does this mean I now run a 6-figure business?
Hereâ€™s a screenshot of our Stripe dashboard for ZenMaid from a few days ago when we broke $100k in total earnings.
We have a long way to go but itâ€™s nice to take a little break and celebrate what weâ€™ve accomplished thus far. Itâ€™s also pretty cool that about half this revenue has come in the prior 6 months (with about 10K coming in during the month leading to breaking 6 figures) so weâ€™re on an upward trajectory.
Alright, thatâ€™s enough celebration. Back to building!
Why? So I can do more of this (photo from last nightâ€™s FC Barca match vs Bilbao):
Why yes, I did see Messi and Neymar play live. Dream come true.
This is the first in a small series Iâ€™ll be writing about the creation and approach to my first book on Comprehensive LinkedIn Marketing (name still to be determined)
Honestly, these posts are more to help me personally to analyze and improve on what Iâ€™m doing, Iâ€™ll be honest: I have no idea if what Iâ€™ll be doing are the right things to do, but I can tell you why Iâ€™m choosing to approach things a certain way.
To start Iâ€™ll just list the things Iâ€™m currently doing as work for this book:
I went through Audible and bought every LinkedIn Marketing book I could find that didnâ€™t look like a scam/part of someoneâ€™s Kindle publishing “empire”. I now have 10+ hours of audio to listen to on LinkedIn Marketing.
This is to help me learn whatâ€™s already out there being sold in the same fashion as I intend to but I also expect to learn a lot and make some improvements to our current LinkedIn campaigns for ZenMaid
2) Sales Page:
In addition to additional research on the project right now Iâ€™m also finalizing a sales page for early access to the book. I already know that Iâ€™m going to write this book because I feel like I can help quite a few entrepreneurs with my story so this isnâ€™t really about validation. Instead Iâ€™m trying to build an email list as Iâ€™m writing the book that I can go to for feedback or perspective
3) Find my “10”
I want to approach this book like Iâ€™m writing it for 5-10 of my close entrepreneur friends who are looking to get started or improve their results on LinkedIn. Right now I have about 3 friends in mind and Iâ€™m constantly brainstorming more. These 10 people would be my target audience and Iâ€™ve found itâ€™s easier to approach mentally thinking “What would Joe need to know here to succeed with this section?” rather than “What should I include in this chapter?”
Finally, Iâ€™m trying to find as many book writing experts and resources as possible to figure out what I donâ€™t know I donâ€™t know.
More on that to come …
If youâ€™re interested in being one of my “10” please donâ€™t hesitate to reach out! Knowing what you need to know in order to succeed on LinkedIn helps me help you!
