Everybody wants to have their own business nowadays. And that’s good, it’s dope, I believe it’s a long-needed paradigm shift.
But what not everybody is willing to do is to go through the shitty starting-out period. Or as Mark Manson puts it, you gotta eat shit sandwiches.
The trick is to eat shit sandwiches that you like.
Blogging is one of the easy solutions.The good side? You can do whatever the hell you want. Write about farts. Hell, South Park made a show about farts and they’re doing pretty well.
The bad side? Nobody gives a shit. It’s quite possible that months, or even years will pass, and the only comments will be from your parents and your girlfriend.
So people quit.
That is, the 5% of the population that actually had the balls to start out in the first place. Only 1% eventually “makes” it, and then live happily ever after, full of cash, farts, and big-booty bitchez.
But what the 4% failed to realize, is that eating those shit sandwiches actually IS THE WAY. Learning the basics of WordPress, content creation & distribution, building an email list are just a bonus.
Going day after day with people not giving a shit is the key though. The key to building mental resilience and work ethic, that will eventually push you to the 1%. Obviously, all the percentages are, like in most online places, completely made up, but probably not far from the truth.
So yeah, if you’re the 5%, then just blog/sing/dance/sell/fart.
And when people don’t give a shit, you know you’re doing the right thing.
