Do you have lots of big ideas?
Do you love to daydream about creating blogs, products, courses, videos, books or resources that people want?
How do you know if your idea is a good idea or a bad one?
The answer is to get in the heads of your readers. I don’t say that from a weird, mystical standpoint. Your success depends on you living in your reader’s shoes.
The bottom line is this: If you want to make a difference in the lives of others, you must know what they want and know how to give them what they need.
A great place to start is by asking the right questions. Many entrepreneurs/blogpreneurs often start by asking the wrong questions. It is not so much about the money and the traffic. It is about over-delivering on value in an area where people need the most help and encouragement.
