Recently, I signed up for a challenge to create and launch a product in 30 days. I thought, no sweat I can do this.
In the past, I’ve pitched business to clients and sold services that I hadn’t ever done before, but knew that I had the skills, expertise, and experience to get it done and deliver a stellar product. Why should this time be any different?
As a side note, if you’re familiar with the Entrepreneurial StrengthsFinder tool, you’ll understand why I am the way I am. My top talent score is “Risk-taker”.
In the challenge that I signed up for (called Just Ship It!), after the first group call on Zoom and looking at the course outline, I thought “What was I thinking?” The fact is I wasn’t thinking and that’s a good thing.
Why is it a good thing you ask? Sometimes you just have to jump in feet first and get out of your comfort zone. When we stay in our comfort zone we can easily get complacent. You know the adage, “no pain, no gain”.
We experience the most growth when we take ourselves out of our comfort zone. That’s why I’m a risk taker. If I thought too long about it, I’d talk myself out of it.
I’m in this challenge now almost to the 30-day mark. I’ve gone through all the steps in the course to research the viability of the product, develop the product, create and launch the landing page, and now just putting the finishing touches on it all. I’ve delayed the start date to allow a bit more time to build some buzz, ensure key partners involved could participate, and get people to sign-up for the product.
Are you dying to know what it is? I was hoping you’d ask. Here it is. And I hope you sign-up.
