Closing Thoughts1:28 with C.C. Chapman
Understand that building any business through blogging takes time. However, if you devote your time to something you enjoy and can grow your audience and influence at the same time, it can be a very worthwhile pursuit.
In closing, I just want to share a couple last thoughts with you. 0:00 The biggest thing is this takes time. 0:03 You are not going to magically become a thought leader overnight. 0:06 You are not going to suddenly have people writing checks to you. 0:09 It takes time. Content marketing is the long game. 0:12 Yes, you might find success tomorrow or next week, 0:17 but start thinking of 6 months or a year, it's going to take time. 0:19 I've been blogging out for 11 years. 0:24 It took me a long time before I was asked to be on stage. 0:26 It took me even longer before I was asked to write a book. 0:29 You're in this for the long haul. 0:33 Looking it at that way and then trust me, you'll be much happier. 0:35 And finally, there are days when this is like slugging through the Mars. 0:39 It is not always fun 0:43 but you can make it fun. 0:46 I love doing this stuff. 0:48 Taking random photos while you're walking about, 0:50 going out, consuming content, reading, 0:52 looking at what other people are doing is fun. 0:54 Do not make this a chore. 0:58 The more you embrace it, the more you live this 1:00 and just enjoy it, you're going to have a lot easier time with it. 1:02 Find what you love doing. Find a fun angle. 1:08 And all this blogging and making money from it, is much much easier. 1:12 Don't be nervous, don't be scared, don't say, 1:16 well they're not doing it how can I do that. 1:19 This is your blog and your future. 1:21 Have fun doing it and thank you for watching. 1:23
