Everyone wants to be successful. At least in one way or the other. And a lot of commercials on YouTube want to tell you about the easy and lazy way to get rich and famous. Spoiler: This short way does not exist! But if you are focused and consistent you can reach the goal you are dreaming of. If you, as a creator, want to build the online business of your dreams – and grow personally along the way – we show you a five-step-recipe to get there.

“Smile, breathe and go slowly.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Get Energy

This is so essential that a lot of people don’t even realize it. And it is the base for ALL your success in life. Eat healthy. Move your body. Relax. Repeat. Only if you are in a good physical and mental condition, you will be able to reach the top. When you are always tired, or your body is screaming for attention, you need to focus on this first. Make it your number one priority before you go any further. You would not go on a long journey with your smartphone at only 15%. Get energy first!

Get Knowledge

It never was so easy to find all the valuable information for a special topic or business area. The internet is full off endless – often free – content and a great starting place for your research. Dive deep. Consume as much information as possible regarding your business area. Watch videos. Read books or listen to audiobooks. Subscribe to our newsletter.😉 Listen to podcasts. Take a course… If it’s interesting and valuable for your desired goal, you will automatically soak up the information like a sponge and get more and more expertise with every bit of data.

Produce & Create Content

Now that you got enough energy and knowledge, it’s time to get going. You don’t feel ready to produce yet, even so you are theoretically prepared? Don’t wait. You will probably never feel completely ready to start. Hardly anyone does. Don’t let your doubts take control. And don’t try to be perfect! That’s only holding you back. Just give the best effort creating your content. Produce A LOT and get better with every peace you create. And most importantly: Enjoy the process.

Publish & Advertise

As soon as you have some output, show it to the world. Use social media platforms and/or your dedicated website. Put your creations on any channel you are involved in. Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, YouTube… After you have an amount of output you feel good with, get familiar with ways of promoting your work. Get your content out there and build an audience.

Growth & Success

Be consistent with these four steps. Make producing and publishing a habit. Give it time. Don’t expect instant results. Business success needs a long-time horizon. Let your business and your followers on the different channels grow slowly with you along the way. Personal growth and success of your business will go hand in hand. And they will ultimately come if you unswervingly pursue your goal and become a little bit better and more experienced every day.

“Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you’re climbing it.”
