So how do you define success? Is it when you get what you want....or you deliver on other people's expectations? That's a tough one...and you may be wondering why I am asking such a thing. Fair enough!
I just finished a live and interactive Facebook event called Closet Design Basics to teach the basics of custom closet design and help entrepreneurs create a new business or people working from home create a small business. Was it a success....well that would depend who you ask.
Why I created the class was two fold:
- To teach people a skill
- To generate interest in my on line course
Well......I did both! The MANY participants were engaged, learning and interested in everything I have to offer! I am thrilled!
So why are others getting me down saying it was unsuccessful if I didn't make X amount of dollars...who are they to say!
I am frankly tired of all the ads I am seeing promoting your door to a MILLION DOLLAR business......excuse my language but I am calling BS on all of that!
I know what it took me to get my course done and I know what struggles people are having after taking my course.....because I CARE and I FOLLOW THROUGH with people. It's not about the money!! Any new skill takes time to learn and expand on to become confident enough to become a success.
It's scary! Starting anything new is scary! Taking the leap of faith is terrifying, but if you don.t.....you will never know! What is that saying?
All I wanted to say I that we all put ourselves out there. New is good, and it only matters if YOU think you were a success!
I am proud and pleased with the comments and feedback I received about the event and I know that the rest will follow!
