Online Success, Vulcan Salutes and The Ability To Clench One Buttock…

So, what is it that the Vulcan Salute (you know, that funny thing they do in Star Trek with their fingers) and the ability to clench one buttock at a time (I’ll have to go into more detail about how I discovered this another time) have in common…?

Well, for a start I can’t do either of them…

Rest assured, my inadequacies are not limited to just these two things. I’m sure regular readers will recall my tales of the list that is kept at ‘Lowe Towers’ of things I’m not very good at … it is updated on an almost daily basis by ‘She Who Must…’ and it must now run into several volumes…

Now I come to think of it, it’s the things I’m NOT very good at that have actually helped to define the level of success I have enjoyed…

Let me explain … when it comes to getting online success, you can’t do everything … which is actually quite good news … because, like me, the chances are you won’t be any good at quite a lot of it…

Which is fair enough, really … after all, if you were doing major work on your house you’d get a plasterer to do the plastering, an electrician to do the electrics and so on, instead of just diving in yourself with no knowledge or experience … because if you did you’d stand a very good chance that your online business will resemble one of those houses you see on those ‘DIY Disaster’ type TV programs…

Since the advent of fiverr.com it hasn’t been that expensive to get things done for you either (if you recall a couple of months ago I mentioned you could get a website set up and ready for less than £25 with no more than the merest inkling of techie knowledge) so there really shouldn’t be any reason for you NOT to be online…

You don’t have to be expert at everything to get started online, you just need to be clear about what you want to acheive … play to your strengths and get the bits you’re not very good at done for you by people who know what they’re doing…

Until Next Time,
