11 Things To Getting The Most Out Of Your Online eCommerce Course

Today, I'm going to share with you how you can get the most from your online ecommerce course but first, let’s pretend for a second. Let’s pretend that you had a million-dollar racehorse. How do you think you’d treat it? This is the question my coaches Alex Charfen asked me one day. 

He said that we, the entrepreneur, are the million-dollar racehorse yet many of us don’t treat ourselves like we would that racehorse who could make us a million bucks. In fact, we often end up treating ourselves horribly.

The racehorse would get the best training, ample time to rest, great food, and plenty of water.

The average entrepreneur often gets training through trial and error, little sleep, garbage fast food, and not enough fluids.

I know, you might be thinking that the million-dollar mark is so far away but… is it really? You have to start at the beginning, there is no getting around this, no matter who you are. Some people just take a different route to how they get there. That racehorse wasn’t born ready to cross the finish line in the first place. It had to train, prepare, and get treated like… well… a million-dollar racehorse.

How do you treat yourself? And no, I’m not here to teach you about nutrition because we all know I love myself some Chick-Fil-A and Diet Coke. I’m here to help you realize what’s needed in regards to getting the most of out of your online ecommerce course so you can become your own million-dollar racehorse.

 

The Realization I Could Go Faster With An Online eCommerce Course

As a new mom, I used to feel so guilty spending money on me. I’m sure you know the feeling where even buying yourself a new shirt to replace the one with holes in it makes you feel guilty. I just wanted to make sure my kids had everything they needed.

As they grew, so did the expenses. Clothes, soccer, piano lessons, etc, etc. The feeling of guilt when I spent money never seemed to go away.

So, naturally, when I needed to learn about what it took to start an online ecommerce business, I went to YouTube University. I thought I could save money by searching YouTube for everything I needed to know. And I actually did learn a lot on my own.

However, it wasn’t until I joined my very first mastermind that my eyes were opened to how much faster I could be going with a  focused online ecommerce course. I was moving at a snail’s pace with my current self-education and trial and error approach. And little did I know, there was a jet sitting there the whole time that would get me exactly where I wanted to go… so much faster.

 

Investing In Yourself For Speed

Before joining that mastermind and taking an online ecommerce course, I just didn’t think I could afford to invest in myself. But once my eyes were open, I knew this was the path. Hindsight being 20/20, if I could go back in time I would have invested in a coach so much earlier.

I was paying for a coach for my kid’s soccer and piano but I was blind to my own need for a business coach. I can’t fathom how many mistakes and issues could have been avoided if I would’ve had a coach to lean on during those early days.

It’s so clear to me now that you are your greatest investment.

On your way to your goals, you have the choice to treat yourself like that million-dollar racehorse or not. From personal experience, I can tell you that the latter will lead to more late nights, tears, and frustration than anyone should endure.

 

How To Get There Faster With An Online eCommerce Course

“The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take it away from you.” – B.B. King

I want to pull back the curtain and show you how to be successful when you sign up for your first online ecommerce course, mastermind, or whatever it is. I’m going to dive into some of the top tips, tricks, and tactics that I’ve seen from my own students in the $0-100k community and friends in the online entrepreneur space.

 

#1: Do Your Research For The Online eCommerce Course

It’ up to you to do your due diligence and make sure that coach or educator is actually legit. You want to make sure they aren’t some one-hit-wonder and that they have real results with students over a period of time.

Keep in mind when you are doing research that one negative doesn’t mean that person isn’t the real deal. Even Mr. Rogers had haters so take it with a grain of salt.

Look for things like is that person showing up in their community and providing value, does it seem like they care, and do you get a good vibe from them. These are all things you need to look for and ask yourself before investing.

 

#2: Use a Trials For An Online eCommerce Course 

There are a ton of online ecommerce course creators who are offering trials now. You should take advantage of this to see if you like how they deliver content. Remember, this isn’t like college. You aren’t stuck with your professor once you sign up if you use the trail. If you don’t like them, just switch.

 

#3: Watch For Emails From The Creator

When you sign up for an online ecommerce course, make sure you are actually getting the emails and they aren’t just going to SPAM. If you aren’t getting the emails then you could be missing out on vital information for your success in the program. 

 

#4: Join The Community

If they have a community, JOIN IT! These are people that are on the same journey as you and many of them are steps ahead of you. Be active in the community and pos when you have questions or roadblocks. 

 

#5: Commit To Posting In The Community

These people are on the journey with you. They are taking the same online ecommerce course as you. Not only will you get questions answered fast from the educator and other community members, but you’ll also be able to create a sense of accountability.

 

#6: Answer Other People’s Questions

You might not consider yourself an expert yet, but guess what… you’re a few steps ahead of some other people and you can provide them value. Maybe they hit a roadblock that you just got around last week. Your reply could save them hours of pulling their hair out. 

That doesn’t mean you are a know-it-all, it just means you are helping.

 

#7: Find a Friend In The Community

When you are getting started, there is something so powerful about having another person that you can lean on and become accountability partners with. If you are in a thriving community, it will be really easy to find another person or persons to team up with.

 

#8: Block Off Your Power Hours For Your Online eCommerce Course

When you set an appointment to get your hair done, do you move it? Of course not. I want you to treat your power hours like your hair appointment and have them set in stone. Your power hours are for you to learn and execute. For every hour that you spend learning from an online ecommerce course, I want you to spend 2 hours implementing what you learned in that online ecommerce course.

 

#9: Reward Yourself

Come on. We are humans, we love rewards. I don’t care if it’s your favorite cookie or to take an hour break sitting in your closet in peace, reward yourself. When you set a goal, also set a reward for when you accomplish that goal. You deserve it.

 

#10: Set Realistic Expectations

“It took me 10 years to become an overnight millionaire.”

You’ve probably heard that quote before. In the beginning, don’t set your goal to be a million-dollars in revenue in the first month. Set incremental goals. In the beginning my goal was to sell $1. Seriously. 

Then it was to sell $200 per day. Then $1,000 per day.

Start small.

 

#11: Implement

You could watch all the online ecommerce courses in the world, but if you never implement what you learned, you’re are no further ahead. You’ll never be that million-dollar horse by just learning. Get out there and start practicing what you’re learning. Take action for the love of loveliness.

  • Thank you Bev and Alison!
    by help would be nice! from Canada

    Absolutely incredible podcast. Thank you ladies for being real, clear and motivating. So empowering. A true testimonial to “Because I Can!”

  • Scary
    by irenesq from United States

    Yup! Alison is scary...not in a bad way though. Its all in a good way. Why? Well, first of, I think Alison is not only an e-commerce expert but also has a psychic ability. I am only on the fifth episode of her podcast, and listening to it made me think like, “how does she know what I’m thinking?” All the fears and self doubts and negativity. She talks about life experiences that are relatable. Somehow whenever I listen to her, she connects with me like as if she was talking to me. I just love her and really blessed to have found her and be part of her clan. Thank you Alison!

  • Inspiring & Amazing
    by DoohikeyDesigns from United States

    Alison is the real deal! She’s real as she inspires you to reach your best life. She gives you glimpses into how she has made multi dollar million businesses. Alison was called to serve others to help others reach the dreams we have always wanted to achieve. She inspires to help us Rise Up to what God wants us to become! It just keeps getting better and better! Wow! Today’s episode in February is amazing! Literally I sell wholesale and know what it takes. But now I’m wanting to really create more retail sales and I have since being in your program! Loved the episode that you did of Puerto Rico and why you moved. I loved how you testified of how God works in our lives and if we trust him we can do anything. Thanks for being a light and a mentor to me. It just keeps getting better and better! Especially today about making offers! Sometimes we don’t always think of the little things it make offers daily to weekly. I know I can amp up my orders and I will be digging deep this week!

  • Clear advice to give you confidence
    by MintBillyCat from United Kingdom

    I love this podcast so much-it is my favourite I’ve found among all the business podcasts. It’s targeted at women who are at home with kids or in a job dreaming of running their own business and making more money. Alison is really relatable, clear and supportive in her advice & delivery and there are tons of good nuggets here for any aspiring or active mumpreneur.

  • Inspirational
    by Greenwichound from United Kingdom

    Some of things that Alison discusses in her podcast are really simple. But sometimes you need it laid out in these terms for it to just go in. And go in it does. Meaning you leave each episode full of confidence and aspiration with a check list of to do’s or things to try out. She shares information bombs that others in her position would never share (fear of giving away their secret sauce) and every step of the way you feel like she’s championing your specific journey. She is golden and this show should be in the library of everyone thinking or currently doing Ecommerce. Keep it up Alison! X

  • Fantastic, just Fantastic
    by 2shopornot from United States

    I just went back and caught up on all the podcasts and can I just say I should’ve done this a long time ago! The content is so clear, Alison brings in guests that are so willing to share.

  • Very optimistic and useful!
    by AJM.44 from United States

    I find these podcasts useful, filled with good tips backed by her experience. She’s also very optimistic and makes me feel like I can do it! Which is why I want to get started! Ok Alison, this question is for you - I want to start selling online in an effort to fund my college education! Obviously I don’t have a lot of time, and more than that, I don’t know where to start lol! Do I create a Shopify store? Do I start selling on someone else’s site (and whose?!)? Do I do a ClickFunnel thing?!

    by Future CEO MR from United States

    I bought your course last summer right in the middle of taking graduate courses to increase my salary lane as a teacher. No need to say that the increase in salary has not made any mayor changes. I always had the desire of doing an e-commerce business but did not know how to start. I still have not taken the time that I am supposed to dedicate to the course, however these podcasts had filled me with the courage I need to start doing it. Thank you Alison for your words of wisdom every Tuesday.

  • Episode 15
    by -akoboe from United States

    Loved this episode and how broken down and step by step the details were. Question for you: How do you decide on a business name and shop for an e-commerce store if you don’t have a niche? Or do you only recommend opening a store for those who do? In the beginning, you sold a lot of random things that didn’t relate to each other, so did you use third party selling websites to sell or did you start your own store and how do you do that without a specific product or niche?

  • Excellent

  • Hopeful:)
    by Polka. Lover from United States

    So far I’m really excited about this podcast....and hoping it doesn’t all lead to what so many other podcasts I’ve listened to have, which is “I’ll tell you just enough to get you excited and start to believe you can do it, but to really start to change your life it’s time to pay for the membership/course and if you can’t afford it that’s just an excuse”. I’ve become a bit of a pessimist in the self-improvement journey while trying so hard to get started but not having much cash to do so. I’m that mom stuck living credit card payment to credit card payment which doesn’t exactly leave money to get started. I’m hoping this podcast is what I’ve been searching for to guide me on how to finally get something going that will bring hope and real change for my future. I love Allison and I have faith that she’s who can help me change my life!♥️

    by Hidequa from United States

    Holy cow- Alison I can feel your energy through my phone as I listened to your podcasts today! I’ve just recently stumbled across your Instagram and even two weeks ago watched a webinar by you as well. I can not tell you how much I feel like you are talking to me, yet I feel myself hearing you, as if I am the one talking. I have felt for a long time that I have something bigger than me I need to do to help people but like the lady in your podcast with the epi-pen, I’m kinda closer to that side of things right now. BUT I feel like I am on my way and I hear your passion for helping people. I can’t wait to listen to more of your podcasts and see where this will take me in the future. Thank you for sharing your loving heart with others.

  • Treasure Trove of Expert Goodness
    by linescrew from United States

    If you're looking to learn about building a successful online business, following your passion, and drive from a real person who practices what she preaches, this is the place! Alison is passionate about others successes- you can hear it in her voice. Against her norm of staying out of the spotlight and working behind the scenes Alison pushed past her fears of putting her face out there to follow her inner drive to teach others how she has been uber successful in several online businesses. She is still active in maintaining several online businesses and has taught me (and thousands more) how to build our own businesses. She is unselfish and wants success for all (and teaches how to do it without going into debt!). She gives so much to help others build their own dreams. Alison is the first mentor that I have found that doesn't hold back in sharing each piece to the complicated puzzle of successful business practices from idea to distribution to customer care. She doesn't promise magical overnight success- but gives you the keys you need and reminds you that your success depends on your dedication and hard work. I can't wait to see what her future episodes bring. Thanks Alison, for overdelivering yet again.

  • Info needs to be consistent
    by joness59 from United States

    I missed that you mentioned the link to your bundle at the beginning of the podcast. At the end you mentioned the site is becauseicanlife.com/bundle. This is an invalid URL. I spent time trying to figure out the link until I saw it posted in the notes of your podcast. My feedback is to make sure the info you provide is consistent. Other than that it was a real good podcast. Hope this was helpful. Stephen Jones (your old Boise neighbor)

    by My Beautiful Child And Me from United States

    Alison is the real deal. She doesn’t just preach and leave us on our own. Alison works her online business right along with us and teaches from her own experiences. She shares the highs and lows and gives us the tools we need to succeed. She is kind and welcoming and supports us even when we feel we are failing. The community she has created for us to find like minded people who want to make a difference is the best group I have ever been a part of. I love that she is always up dating her course that we have life long access. The fact that she takes the time to do FB lives a few times a week where she is open to all our questions is remarkable. I am grateful I found her. It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out or a seasoned business owner, Alison offer something for all of us. Connie Leonard

    by seesnow99 from United States

    I’ve been following Alison for a while now. I bought into her 0-100K system. My store is up & running thanks to her & a lot of hard work. If you want to have an e-commerce business & have the best support team ever, look no further. I’ve done tons of webinars & online research. Nothing compares to what I have learned from Alison. Her online Facebook group is nothing short of phenomenal. You can post your struggle & ask for help. Five hours later, you come back to loads of encouraging posts from fellow “clanners” who have been there & they’re offering helpful advice. I have been in her course since May 2018 & have watched her course get better & better. That’s because she’s constantly adding to it. The best part about all of this is that Alison is genuine. She really wants to see her students succeed. This podcast is just another way to encourage us & all of you at the same time. I’ve met her in person more than once & her sincerity is more than evident. Sit back & enjoy the podcast! Better yet, take that jump & come join us in the Because I Can Clan!

    by StartupDadHQ.com from United States

    So happy Alison has launched this podcast. So refreshing to find parent entrepreneurs who are crushing it in business but at the same time being REAL, TRANSPARENT, and VULNERABLE about what it's really like to build a business with a family (without sacrificing the family)! So many families out there are struggling working 9-5 or more and still unable to provide for their families. Alison's journey is a tremendous inpiration that it doesn't have to be like that and as a Entrepeneur myself I'm looking forward to some solid advice and tips through this podcast. Thank you Alison!!

  • Alison Prince WALKS THE WALK Like No Other Person I Know
    by Supreme Dragon Slayer 69 from United States

    Full Disclosure. I met Alison and her amazing family just a few years ago and in that time I have witnessed an incredibly humble person step into even more of her greatness. This is someone who chases Impact over Significance in everything she does. In a world where most “big marketing gurus” who just yell louder to be heard and rely mostly on manufacturing celebrity to become a house hold name... Alison has been actually walking the walk for decades. She is family focused. She is heart centered. But make no mistake. She is one of the most BRILLIANT Marketers and Business Builders in the world. She had proven herself time and time again on her multiple businesses in multiple niches. All. From. The. Ground. Up. So yes. I know her. Which makes me qualified to write this review bc if you do have an opportunity to ever meet her in real life, feel good knowing she is the same in real life as she is on this podcast. Dave

  • The real deal

    If you really want to know what it takes to change your life then you better listen. Alison knows what it takes to start and grow your new online business and love your entrepreneur life.

I was crawling through a lot of the early parts of my business when I could have been taking a jet and getting there so much faster, and it's so much more luxury. I was making my racehorse me go through so much trial and error, exhausting it to the end staying up until 2 am just to learn one more thing or crying way too many times because things just didn't work.

Hey, you are listening to the Because I Can Life Podcast where we believe we can decide our own income, choose happiness, kick fear in the teeth and never, ever stop. Why? Because we can. I'm your host Alison J. Prince and I went from being a junior high science teacher to building four online multi-million-dollar businesses with four kids at my feet. Each week. I'm bringing you real conversations that have led me as well as other experts to step into our dream online business lifestyle so that you can get the answers you need to craft your because I can as well take that first step and commit now to your because I can live by downloading your free personal bundle at www.alisonjprince.com/bundle.

Welcome to today's podcast. All right, if you had a million dollar racehorse, how would you treat it? I'm guessing you treat it pretty darn good, right? plenty of rest really good food. Well, this is exactly what one of my coaches Alec scharffen asked me one day and he said the entrepreneurs are the million dollar horse yet they treat themselves in no way they would ever treat the horse. In fact, many entrepreneurs end up treating themselves the absolute worst. So maybe you're thinking oh my gosh, Allison, that million dollar may seem like forever away. can't even imagine yourself getting there. But think about where did that horse start? It had to have its first steps, right? It had to go on its first race. That horse had to start at the beginning and grow day by day, and it became into the million dollar horse race that they became. Someone took time to invest in that horse, show them what to do, and train them kind of like what you're doing right now. Let's think about you. How do you treat you know, this isn't a podcast on diet or food. It's on how you treat the training for the growth on how you get to your goals even faster on how you become that million dollar racehorse. Now, I used to feel guilty, really, really guilty for spending money on me and at one point, the few shirts that I had in my closet had holes in them, and I still couldn't buy me a new shirt. This was really Right after we had our first baby Michaela, buying a shirt for me just made me feel really guilty. Jared, my sweet husband went to Old Navy and he bought me some one of them. I still remember to this day, it was a baby soft pink shirt with a little pocket on the side. He's a good man. I wanted to make sure my kids had everything. So spending money on me just always seemed really selfish. And then as my kids grew that money went into soccer teams piano lessons, and that feeling of spending money just seems so wasteful on me yes, even on new clothing. So when I came across online learning, it just didn't even ever make sense. It just didn't make the cut for me. I am a thrifter by nature, thanks to my sweet grandma grandpa who went through the Great Depression they taught me how to reuse tinfoil wash out my name ziplock baggies so I think that has a little bit to do with my thought process on Why I'm just fine wearing a shirt with holes in it. So when I started out on my journey, I thought I could just go to YouTube University and learn through trial and error journey to figure things out. Now, I did figure out a lot of things on my own. But it was only after I joined my very first mastermind, that my paradigm completely shifted. And I realized that I was crawling through a lot of the early parts of my business. When I could have been taking a jet and getting there so much faster. And it's so much more luxury. I was making my race horse me go through so much trial and error, exhausting it to the end, staying up until 2am just to learn one more thing or crying way too many times because things just didn't work. I was trying to figure out on my own, because I didn't feel like I could invest in me spend the money on me my growth. Or my learning. Now if I could go back? And of course we all say that right hindsight 2020 I wouldn't have been so afraid to invest in me who was becoming that million dollar horse. I think about if I would have invested in a coach earlier, what mistakes would I have missed what I've been able to get to my goals faster. I mean, I pay for coaches for my kids piano to help them to get results faster and help them to stay consistent. So I'm not sure where in my journey I didn't think that I could invest in me. I guess that's why I'm bringing it up on today's podcast. You know, I talked about my mistakes and hopes that you don't make them. You are your future million dollar racehorse and I don't want you to have to crawl through some of the things where you could be taking that jet now I get it is hard to spend money on a coach or an online ecommerce course to learn not only Have expenses, but you're gonna have to deal with some of the other thoughts about will it work is a teacher legit? Maybe you've tried other things and he just didn't quite get the results that you wanted to. Now I know I've experienced it and seen it firsthand how one online ecommerce course can make you a million dollars turn you into that million dollar horse. And through this process of watching me watching my students go through it, I've truly learned that you are your greatest investment. You are the one to invest in, so that you can get the outcome that you're looking for sure, you go to YouTube University. But why haven't you done it already? Right. YouTube's been around for a long time. There may be some things that are missing over there on YouTube University. There's so much information out there. You need to stop the clutters Stop everything that's going on stop the talk and focus on you. And investing in yourself with clarity and with focus. Now there's a quote by BB King that says the beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you. Learning to make that first dollar, you prove to yourself that you can do it again and again and again. Okay, so I've talked about how you are your future million dollar horse, and I've talked to you about, we can invest in our kids coaching and our kids ability to help them stay consistent. Now you're like, Okay, I get it. I can invest in me, I see the power of coaching, I see the power of being able to focus on the things I need to do so that I can go faster. And so you sign up for a course or a mastermind or something like that. What I want to do is I want to dive in to some of the top tips that I have seen and watched those students who are successful, do consistently time and time again. So plot your pen, pull out your paper, because I'm going to go through the habits, the things, the tips, the tricks of people signing up for an online ecommerce course, and completing them and hitting their goals. And I want you to be able to do that as well. All right, number one, maybe this should be zero, do some research, make sure that that educator is legit. We're seeing a big influx of people educating online and maybe some are one hit wonders and don't actually have any testimonials. Or maybe they're just one step ahead of you. Do some research, make sure they've been in this industry. For a little while they know how to teach they know how to get their students results. Now, if you are going down the trail and looking up reviews, remember, if you see a negative review, remember even Mr. Rogers had haters So take some of it with a grain of salt. An online ecommerce course that I took had a handful of negative reviews, but I took it with a grain of salt. And it was the best information I learned. There are people that are just grumpy in this world and are gonna leave bad reviews. But watch to see how that teacher is participating. are they responding? are they showing up in their community? Are they trying to make the wrongs right? Do your homework in that area number two, use a trial. So many online ecommerce course creators are offering trials now. dive in, see if you like their style of teaching. I had some really bad, really bad professors in school. And I remember I had this specific teacher she was the only one that taught the class and I was stuck with it. I couldn't change. That's not how it works in the online world. You can switch classes if you want to. Number three when you sign up watch for emails from the Creator. And open them up, make sure they're not going to spam. Make sure you didn't have fat fingers and type in the wrong email address because you could be missing out on vital new updates, information, having that communication open through emails so that you can progress, get the updates and move quicker. Number four, if they have community, hop into the dang community and post if there is not a community, I'd personally be a little bit hesitant. You'll see why. And number five, six and seven. Now next week's podcast episode, I interview a gal named ronita Clark, Guess how I found out about her in our community she posted a huge pile of packages going out the door and how she was able to make it happen while working full time. I can't wait for you to hear her story. And without this community, I wouldn't have been able to highlight her and just wait you're gonna be pretty darn inspired by this gal. All right, number five commit to posting in the community in the Whether it's a Facebook group, whether it's some other type of group commit to posting, now I have a friend on social Well, okay, we've only met once. But I think she's a rock star. So in my book, we're BFFs. And she wanted to compete in a bodybuilding competition at the age of 46. She told people everywhere so they would hold her accountable. Now she has a great family and friends to support her. I get that, but not everybody does when I started my business, all except the Alison j brands because I can fam brand. I didn't want to tell a soul because I remember when I started, I had a guy leaned over to me and tell me that I was a joke, and then I would never make it. So of course, I went quiet. I went deep. I wanted to prove him wrong. I didn't want the whole world to know if I failed. But I know if I had a community that could have helped me process it that could have helped me inspire that it could have helped me to have learned how other people are going through this Same process with the same goal, who wouldn't judge me, I would have gotten a lot further, a lot faster. Remember how I'm talking about the million dollar horse and that million dollar horse was crawling. This was a crawling time for me, I would have had a community, that would have been the jet to let me know that there's a lot of jerks out there. A lot of people that are going to tell you that you're going to fail. That's just what some people think. And they like to voice their opinion. And so when I learned that's just something that people do, I'm now able to block it a lot faster. This is why communities are developed online, they become your family of your goal that you're trying to get to. You have common words you have inside jokes. There's a few words that we use, one of them's called can win. When you get your first dollar and we celebrate the heck out of you and we have the 1050 hundred grand cam and even a million Another one is finding your llama to get people off the freeway of social media, it's like your own language, and you just get each other. Next one. Number six answer other people's question. All right, we've got this gal in our group Julia test. She answers questions like nobody's business, and she's been doing it for years, and I have been able to watch her business grow, you start to think differently when you begin to answer questions that you had just a few months before. Now, I do know that there's difference between helping like what Julia test does and then you've got them as no at all, who's never done it. No at all. There is a difference lean on the side of helping number seven, find a group in the friend. See if they want to be your accountability partner. have a meeting with them each week can be over social and just say how to do once you get done. check in on each other. All right, three left to get us to number 11 number eight is block off your power hours to learn and consume the content, write it down in a pen on your calendar so it doesn't get moved just like you don't move your hair appointment. Oh, man, once my hair appointment is set, that thing is cemented in. Because I know it'll take me another month or two into my hair lady. Do this and treat this the same way as your power hours and stick to it, then forever how much you learn. So let's say you do an hour of learning an hour of consumption, then I want you to double that time with implementation. So one hour of learning and two hours of implementation. This is where I see a lot of people struggle and it's not your fault. Netflix taught us how to binge watch dang Netflix. sucked in there so easy. This is not the process of building a business. Think about it. Like let's say you want to become a gold medalist snowboarding if you could read all the books in the whole world on how to be a gold Gold medalist in snowboarding, but you're never going to be it until you get on that hill and implement the things that you learned. Get on that hill. Number nine, reward yourself. We're humans. We like rewards, whether it's your favorite cookie, whether it's your favorite doughnut, whether it's to take an hour break, and sit in silence in your closet, whatever it is that brings you happiness, make that your goal. Maybe the thing is you stay consistent with your power hours for a week, and then you get to reward yourself. We are human beings, we love to be rewarded. You deserve it. You deserve it. Number 10. Set your expectations. All right. We have a little talk a little chat with this. Don't expect 100 million dollars overnight when you first start. You've heard the quote, it took me 10 years to become an overnight millionaire right? There's so many people people that say that overnight millionaires, hundred million, that doesn't happen, it doesn't happen. So set your expectations when I first started, my goal is to sell see if I could even sell it make that dollar and then I raised it to $200 a day. And then I raised it to $1,000 a day and then I kept raising it and raising it and raising it. Start small you have permission to start small. Okay, another thing is school messed us up. They taught us to get an A we have to get 90% right, a B's 80% c 70%. You know, you know the drill, you know, looking at your grades. So when we open up our very first store, and we see we have 100 people coming to our store because we look at the stats. And 90 people didn't buy our stuff. We feel like a failure. And in fact we look at it and only two people bought out of 100 that's like 2% That's not even an F. That's an F minus minus minus. That is where school completely messed us up because the average conversion in your store is one to 3%. So if you get one, two or three orders for every hundred people, you, my friend, are headed to your million dollar racehorse don't believe what school taught us. Now it's my mission to get you well above the 3%. But just a little FYI, to make you feel like you are the rock star that you are. When you get a sell for 100 people. Just take note, put that little badge of honor on you because you deserve it. And then let's talk about emails. Here's an expectation for emails. You send out 100 emails. And why did only 15 people open it? That still feels like an F minus minus right? Nope. School messed us up. Just remember that school messes up average open rate 15 to 20%. So for every hundred People you have on your email list 15 to 20%, we'll open it. Sure. My mission to teach you how to get that higher but that's average so that you know that you are crushing it. Alright, here is the last one number 11. I know I mentioned this earlier, but I feel like it needs the ending. I feel like we need to kick this one off for the end. For the love of all loveliness, implement. You can watch all the online ecommerce courses in the entire world. You can learn everything, but unless you implement, you will never become you can't become that million dollar horse. That million dollar horse had to learn how to walk had to learn how to run a race, how to learn, and it was coached and it was taught and it was directed by someone who knew who had been down the path before. So don't forget to put that implementation in progress. Alright, so I want to wrap it up. I want to go through over those 11 things real quick. But I forgot one thing. I know, maybe this should be like seven point, but no, it should actually be 10.5 because we're talking about how schools messed us up. Think about the online ecommerce courses that you invest in. Maybe they're 500, maybe they're $1,000. Maybe they're whatever the prices, compare that next to a college degree. Let that sink in a little bit $1,000 for a course compared to what schools charge now, I don't know. I am happy to pay for courses all day long because they help me get to my goal faster. I don't have to go earn credits. I don't have to sit in a stinky classroom. I can get to my goals faster. I love paying for course creation. Pay these teachers to coach me, just like I pay my kids piano teacher to help coach them and keep them accountable. Alright, let's run through a real quick here are the top 11 things to help you to be successful to completing a course and becoming that million dollar horse that you are number one, research number two

try it out and number three open your emails from them number four use the community number five post in the group number six answer other people's questions. Number seven, find that BFF or your accountability partner. Number eight power hours, get that power on and rock that work out number nine, celebrate track and then celebrate the heck out of you along your journey. Number 10 expectations school screwed us up. Know your expectations so you can step in to the rock star that you are and then number 11 love of all loveliness you got to implement.
