The Biggest Reason Most New Entrepreneurs Fail

2017-01-05 09:43:53

In yesterday's email I talked about why I think New Years is the very best time to begin making big changes in your life.

I want to thank the dozens of you that have opened up and shared your big goal for the next year with me . I was up until 2am last night in Dublin answering emails, and I hope to continue getting to know you better into the new year!

First however, I want to introduce Avery Breyer.

A few years back Avery had a a completely normal suburban life with her husband and two kids.

But after trying her hand at niche sites and a few other online ventures without any real success, she joined Location Rebel Academy and started freelance writing.

Less than 18 months later her business was doing so well that she packed her family up, and took off on an adventure to Asia where they lived in Kuala Lumpur for nearly a year.

Now they don't have a home base, and when I spoke with her a couple weeks ago they had setup a home base in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Looking back she said it was the Location Rebel Academy blueprints and forums that ultimately helped make this new life and new business possible.

She's happier than she has ever been, and has a thriving business to boot!

"I knew exactly what I wanted to get out of joining LR, and now I've got it! I can work wherever the heck I want, we can pick up and travel whenever we please, we don't have to ask permission from anyone. Finally."

Check out my recent case study with her here.

The ONE key ingredient for success with a lifestyle business

When you're embarking on a journey that has you doing things your friends and family might consider crazy, there's one key recipe to success that is way more important than everything else.

I've learned this. As has Avery, and most of the people who have been successful within Location Rebel Academy.

Any idea what it is?

How about I just tell you.

It's having a community of supportive people, who get what it is you're trying to do.

Even if you're trying to be a soloprenuer, the worst thing you can do is have a "lone wolf" mentality.

But this is the attitude so many new entrepreneurs take, and all too often it's their downfall.

Having a supportive community is the absolute most important aspect of beginning this journey. You know why?

Because you're going to have down days, you're going to run into roadblocks, and at times you're going to want to give up and stick with your "comfortable" yet soul-sucking day job.

When you have a community of hundreds of people doing their own variation of what you want, you don't have to worry about this.

Inside Location Rebel we have over 2,000 members who are on every step of the journey.

We have people like Jessica and Colin, who have made huge changes just months after starting the program. We also have people like Lise who have built extremely successful businesses, and tend to take on mentorship type roles to newer members.

But many of the people in our community are in the exact same shoes as you, and are just starting out. This is huge, as you can lean on each other for accountability and help each other stay focused as you grow your business.

Community is something I see so many people miss when they begin building an online business - and it's frankly, the most valuable part of Location Rebel.

What makes this better than some other communities out there?

Everyone has paid to be there. Seriously, that's the truth.

That means they've invested in themselves, and have made a commitment to themselves to make a change. This immediately makes the quality of our community skyrocket.

So today I want you to think about the community you've surrounded yourself with. Are they the support system you need? Do they share your goals and understand what you're trying to do? Answer that question honestly.

Tomorrow I'm going to tell you more about the newest blueprint in Location Rebel (it's hands down the most valuable one we've ever created) - as well as all of the other incredible bonuses I have in store for you this week.

Remember our 72 hour sale goes live at 10am PST on January 1st, and the earlier you join, the more you'll get :)

I honestly believe this is the best offer I've ever created for Location Rebel, so there will truly never be a better time to join.

PS: Thank you again to everyone who responded to my last email with their goal for the rest of the year. I knew I'd get some responses, but I had no idea I'd be up so late answering emails - I love it!

I wasn't joking when I said email is better as a two way street.

If you haven't emailed me the one biggest change you hope to make in 2017 yet, take a second now and hit reply. I promise I won't bite!
