When I first started seeing success with my BREs, I found that making the money I wanted wasn't always enough.
It's not that I needed to chase more money, I felt like I needed...I don't know...something.
These blogs just weren't doing it for me.
They had served their purpose of getting me the money that I needed to pay my bills and so it felt like I needed to move on to something else.
It's why Dare to Conquer
I don't really feel fulfilled with my work unless I know I'm helping people. When I'm helping people I go to bed with a smile and wake up with a laugh.
I'm going to be honest here, BREs usually don't give me that feeling.AND THAT'S OKAY.
They've provided me with the ability to not work for someone else. They've allowed me more freedom to work on the things that I want.
But I'm not going to pretend they are the endgame for me. I don't want my life to be filled with nothing but making BREs.You might be different
. Maybe this is something you want to do for the rest of your life and the reason why I've created this course is that I want you to have that as an option.
BREs are a great gateway for people that aren't sure if running their own business is for them.
Some people get weirded out if they are called an entrepreneur because they don't think they can create their own business.
BREs are great in helping you build the confidence that you can build a business because THEY ARE A BUSINESS.
Types of Entrepreneurs
In his book, Choose
, Ryan Levesque does a great job of categorizing entrepreneurs.
He classifies entrepreneurs into 4 types:
For the longest time, I knew I was a mission-based entrepreneur. I had a mission to help people and so I would come up with a ton of zany ideas that I thought would work.
They should've worked because if I wanted to help people then they should want my help.
Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way and I wasn't making any money.
I almost called it quits until I sat down and really studied how others were making money.
That's when I switched gears to become an opportunity-based entrepreneur. If there was a good way to make money then I was going to go after it.
Switching gears from mission to opportunity allowed me to come up with Blog Revenue Engines, but as I mentioned before they didn't fulfill a burning I had inside.
What they did do though is allow me to switch gears back into being a mission-based entrepreneur.
Now I am afforded the luxury of taking the time to work on things that I truly believe in.
That's special and I think that's what most people want. They just want the freedom to work on what they truly want to work on.
But for that to happen they need time and money. The more money you make, the more time you give yourself.
Instead of looking at BREs with dread, I began to look at them as my own mini-investment group.
When you have these little assets running and bringing in money for you, it brings about so much more freedom.
But first, you have to put in the work to make them happen.
I bring this up because many of you are going to come into this course with the mindset of being a mission-based or passion-based entrepreneur.
You know exactly what you want to do and that's what you want to stick with.
I completely understand why you have this mentality but I just wanted to open you up to the possibility of being an opportunity-based entrepreneur when working on a BRE.
With that being said, let's see what BREs are really about.
