Hi all, sorry it’s been a while coming I’ve been putting some exciting stuff in place to launch the blog properly beyond the preliminary stuff you’ve all seen. But we’re about to launch into the meat of it all….how is all this buzz going to translate to INCOME? Where’s the actual HARD WORK gonna come in? What’s the actual AMBITION behind the project?
Well I can tell you…….ambition is not something I lack! I am an optimist to the core, that’s how I ended up here…..most of my plans are thought out long and hard (as opposed to long and hardly thought out lol). But what some of them lack is a true worst case scenario, and I firmly believe I’m a tad unlucky in this regard and I do find myself in exactly that scenario…..up pooey creek without a paddle…fairly often. All that said….the ambition behind this project is possibly unsurpassed. So much so my darling wife Claire is on record as saying “ You’re off your head, it’s never going to happen – I just don’t want you to look silly”.
To be fair she didn’t say this of the whole scheme but of one or two elements of the plan (maybe 3 or 4). I believe though, that people who claim to be realists are often pessimists and CAN (huge disclaimer) lack ambition. I need these people around me. This is why we have a successful 14 year relationship and I respect nobody more for putting up with me…from that mind-set.
My brother is also one of these people and I love him dearly and (usually) value his opinion massively.
Don’t think you don’t need these people around you or that they’re a negative influence. Often they are exactly what you do need to keep you grounded and hold you to account. They also maintain your focus, I can’t afford any more slip ups in the immediate future as I’m about out of trust and faith since my last delivery of some stability and success.
Fortunately lots of ‘madness’ has worked, to a degree, which is why confidence stays high. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes, I am prone to dark days where I lose belief and take solace in my duvet and the comfort of Bluebell and Bonsai (my dogs) pinning me under it while they snore away contentedly above.
It is from one such period I arise, like a phoenix, to take on the world, embattled for a new assault at greatness, one that is surely unfailable! One that is so awesome it deserves a new adjective! “What such plan?” I hear you cry……
The blog here at SteveHax is going to be the window, not just for general life or an online diary of mediocre interest. It is going to chronicle the launch of ideas, concepts and ultimately products and services. ‘Money Making Madness’ – if you will – that you, the reader, can gain inspiration from, enjoyment from or just straight up laugh at, as it all comes crumbling down! Either way I want it to be memorable. I’m all in on this, lets do it.
Continuing the madness theme, how many ideas are we talking about? Well. being one for a challenge…..I thought I’d go for 52, one a week for the next year. All of them can and should work (‘Should’ THE mantra of an optimist) but even if only one of them works, we should be alright…..right? So how’s it gonna look on this blog? I have a template I want to work to as close as possible that involves a post every day. A typical week ‘should’ look like this….Sunday – Blog post, Monday – Video – life and times of…,Tuesday – Idea, Wednesday – Expansion on idea, Thursday – Blog post, Friday – Video – any, thought for the day, life and times of, product review. Saturday – Funny story, insightful share, madness video, fun video, or recommendation.
This is where the hard work comes in right? I’m going to be a busy boy posting every day, unless on holiday, out of internet, or under the duvet…..NOOO! Wait, it’s Monday, I’m already a day late! I’ll do two tomorrow, I already shot the video I wanted to post and I already have the product idea to tell you about……that’s a point, I sat down yesterday to try and see if I could get anywhere near the 52 ideas I need….amalgamating all the thought processes I’ve had during the conceptualisation of this blog/project. It took me about 30 minutes to bring together all 52 ideas……easy day. Sooo…..call to action time folks? Subscribe to the blog using the fields on the right if it sounds like a journey worth following or join the facebook group for more interaction….but above all, please find my SteveHax page on facebook and like it….so loads of people come along and I don’t feel like I’m flogging a dead mackerel (I have no idea)……CIAO FOR THE NOW – Steve
