I've been inspired lately that many of the things I've been working on with my sites and the way I do them will work out in the end.
A lot of that has to do with the Q&As I've been doing with other Niche Creators. I ask everyone the same 20 questions plus a Bonus question where they can add anything else they'd like.
What's inspired me is that we're all on the same journey, yet it's different for everyone. There have been 8 interviews thus far and each person has taken their own, unique path.
You'll see that there's no magic process, course, location, etc. to building successful niche sites. It's a matter of getting started, making mistakes, and learning along the way.
The questions start off with where the Niche Creator lives, because it's always interesting to hear if there's a reason for their location. It goes to show that you can be anywhere in the world and create content.
Then the questions go into their backgrounds, niche sites, and strategies. Then it goes into my 3 favorite questions:
- What has been the biggest mistake you made?
- What has been the best decision you’ve made?
- What’s one thing that you felt accelerated your journey the most?
These 3 questions ask them to reflect on their journey and what has helped them get to where they are. Everyone has different answers to this. These answers are so inspirational to me, because they show that everyone's unique and we all take different paths.
But, there is a loose thread through the responses. It was summed up nicely by something Shawna Newman from Skipblast said...
Investing in Myself
She said that in regard to spending money on forums, courses, etc., but there's so much more in those 3 words.
Are wondering how all the gurus out there got to be so successful? They put in the work.
Invest time and energy in yourself and your niche sites. There are no shortcuts.
