Hello, and welcome to the 30 Day Blog Challenge to create freedom in business and adventure in life!
Let me be the first to congratulate you on making a very smart choice towards your future and personal success.
By committing to the next 30 days you’re taking life changing steps in the direction of building a business and lifestyle you love.
It may be scary, even hard at times and I commend you for your dedication.
Now, lets jump into it…
Over the next 30 days you will have three acts to follow:
Act 1: Welcome to the world of digital nomads (Days 2-8)
You’ll learn how to:
Develop a winning and effective entrepreneurial mindset that will allow you to build a solid base from which to grow both personally and professionally
Understand what it really takes to be free and location independent and figure out your next steps for your current stage of suitcase entrepreneurship
Act 2: Build an online business you can run from anywhere (Days 9-21)
You’ll learn how to:
Choose the business model that most suits your lifestyle goals
Craft and create your one page business plan to profit and freedom
Learn how to use online tools, social media and outsourcing to build your online platform
Act 3: How to Become a Pro at Being Homeless (Days 22-30)
You’ll learn how to:
Prepare yourself for location independence and how to choose the right destination for your personal preferences
Establish your daily habits and routine that will ensure you stay productive, focused and successful no matter where you are
Become a savvy travel hacker and establish a global network of friends around the world
The aim of this series is as easy as 1-2-3:
Teach you the why and how of the step you’re about to take with real examples in action
Set you a task that you DO by writing your response on your blog (250-1000 words is a great ballpark range to aim for – but it’s your choice)
Provide you with further resources so you can dive in deeper or to learn from or great examples in action.
This three pronged approach is designed so that you come away from the challenge fully equipped with the knowledge, tools and resources to build your online business and create your ideal lifestyle plan, but you’ll also have achieved the blueprint to accomplish your own personal version of success.
Excited? So am I!
And I’m not the only one. Others are excited too and already wrote why they’ve joined this challenge like Katie Curtin with her post All Aboard The Suitcase Entrepreneur Blog Challenge : Life Design for Creative Souls
Let’s get started…
I wasn’t going to actually have you do anything today but I’ve had so many people asking when can I start that here’s what you can sink your teeth into (it’s optional) before the first challenge tomorrow:
TODAY’s challenge: Write a post on why you started your blog, who you wanted to reach, what you wanted it to be all about. Then state why you joined this blog challenge and what you want to get out of it.
Make sure you read the full fun details at suitcaseentrepreneur.com/blogchallenge and take the four simple steps to get started – go read them now!
A quick note on trackbacks and how to share your posts:
So that we can know when you’ve posted and include a link to your blog post in our daily round up you need to create a trackback.
Trackbacks are a way to notify blogs that you’ve linked to them. Think of them as the equivalent of acknowledgements at the end of a book.
Option 1: Trackback
Simply copy and paste the full URL of this blog post for example, which is http://suitcaseentrepreneur.com/blogchallenge/blog-challenge-day1
2. When you write your blog post response, paste it in the box below the text box you’ve typed your blog post into, which should look similar to this:
3. Publish your post and the trackback will be sent.
Option 2: Comment
If that’s a little technical simply leave a comment below with a quick sentence on what you wrote about and paste your URL.
(Note it may not show up straight away as I’ll have to approve comments with links in them).
Stay tuned tomorrow for Day 2 on Mindset: Have you got what it takes to be a Suitcase Entrepreneur. By the way if you’re as excited as I am and all the other awesome people emailing and messaging me, so share this cool challenge with your friends
