Welcome to Day 6 of the #3StepsNoExcuses journey with me, Rob Willmann.

Today is Day 6. Time flies when you enjoy what you do, and I definitely enjoy helping others through their 30 day journey.

This day rocks, because it drills home the idea that we actually have to START something.

Some people are great at dreaming big. Others are good at coming up with plans.

It's the ones who take ACTION on their plans to realize their goals that succeed.

That's why I love today's Plus 1 Success video "Start Something". I'll talk more about it below, but it's such a powerful little nugget.

If you're not familiar with this process, be sure to check out Day 1 where I go over the whole process.

Here's what you can expect in my daily updates:

  • A short list of the three steps,
  • My results and thoughts about each step.
  • A link to my 3Steps Today email course funnel so I can grow my list. (I am a marketer after all.)
  • Current amount of CTP, Hive, PoB, Leo the @threesteps account owns.

Let's go!

Your 3 Steps for Day 6 of #3StepsNoExcuses

  1. Watch the ClickTrackProfit video "Podcasting". Your voice matters.
  2. ListNerds - Build the 2 B's and win.
  3. Watch Plus 1 Success Video: "Start Something", then take action.

1. Watch the ClickTrackProfit video "Podcasting". Your voice matters.

Login to Click Track Profit, then head to the Training portion of CTP. Once there, find the "Click!" section and look for the "Podcasting" video and watch it.

I currently have plans to start my own podcast, and so far have:

  • narrowed it down to the number of times I am broadcasting per week (two),
  • located someone to do my intro\outro voiceovers (dwhightower)
  • have a timeslot picked out (early am)
  • have a service I want to start with (https://anchor.fm/)
  • purchased the material necessary to make a 'pop' filter for my Samson mic and hope to have this started soon.
  • own my own domain now (https://3Steps.Today) where I can promote and post my audio from the podcast.

Notice what's missing in the above list? a NAME!

I am still fidgeting over what to name this podcast, and am running out of time because I have to have a name picked out before I get the script done for the intro\outro voiceovers through fiverr.

Have any ideas? Leave a comment below with what you think I should call a podcast, if it's all about the best content from the Click Track Profit tribe.

I am anticipating that my initial broadcasting will most likely start in a few weeks if I stick to my plan.

However, my goal right now is for me to continue through this entire 30 day process and record videos daily to supplement what I already have content-wise for the #3StepsNoExcuses free e-course.

I can't start the podcast until after I am done with my current 30 day project, because I do not want to over-commit myself.

Let's talk about List Nerds.

2. ListNerds - Build the 2 B's and win.

As a marketer, your job is to get people to know, like and trust you...And you do tht by:

  1. Branding your name
  2. Building your list

Jon O really hammers the point home about building our own brand. I do this by promoting almost exclusively my current funnel. That way when folks are subscribed and on my mailing list, as they get to know, like and trust me, I am building a relationship.

Yet it all started with that first contact, most likely from List Nerds. That's why it's important to make sure that your marketing messages are building up you and your brand, business, and list.

Over time this wins.

Review your List Nerd emails to make sure your efforts are building your brand and not someone else's. Once you've made any changes to your emails, it's time to check out Plus 1 Success!

3. Watch Plus 1 Success Video: "Start Something", then take action.

Login to Plus 1 Success, and check out the video for day 6:
"Start Something"

Note: If you haven't upgraded, you still have access to all of the material from the 30 days in ebook form. :)

This is a great lesson, because the entire point is that we can plan and plan and plan, but if we never act on our plans, they're just wishful thinking.

For me, I decided to take action, create the 3Steps.Today site, start a curation account (this @threesteps one) and began promoting CTP, ListNerds, and Plus1Success. It worked. It still works.

Why? Because I took action. Look, I am nothing special.

Success online is about effort, persistency, consistency, and helping others.

If you can work on bettering yourself in those areas, you'll most certainly be successful. If nothing else, at the end of this journey of self improvement you'll be a better person, and that's a win in my book.

Now let's talk about crypto. (Entering #leo mode.)

Current holdings for @threesteps account

Token NameAmount Held YesterdayAmount Held TodayDifference

These numbers look small now, but they grow daily, and I remember when my @robwillmann account was new. It won't take long before this account really starts to take off, especially with the delegations it's received.

Each day I am compounding more crypto. Since I am trying to use the CTPTalk platform more, and because I am upvoting ctp content, and posting to the CTP tribe on Hive, etc. it only makes sense that I earn more CTP tokens than anything else.

I'm fine with that.

I'm a very big fan of the #CTP tribe.

I mean, c'mon... this entire 30 day series was started by Jon @ CTP, and uses three tools built by the CTP folks.

With that, have a wonderful day. Go start promoting your online business with the new tools you now have in-hand.

That's it! Cya tomorrow. Please reach out to me if you have questions.


P.S. One last item:

I created a 30-day free email course on the #3StepsNoExcuses journey mentioned above, and I'd really like to hear what you think about the content. You can sign up by clicking this link and then confirming your email address. The course lines up with the daily steps, and I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Also, I've created an account on Hive blockchain called @ threesteps. It's a curation account that upvotes quality content on the blockchain. Mention this account in your post and I'll swing by and take a look. This is a community tool to increase earnings of people who write good content. I will specifically look for and upvote # 3StepsNoExcuses and # 3StepsToday posts first. I upvote quality content, and stake 100% of the Hive, CTP, and #leo this account earns. That way votes from this account increase as fast as possible.

Hi Rob, What's wrong with "3StepsToday" as a name for your podcast? It aligns well with your website and your other Hive account. When you curate quality content it will be in the context of people taking steps to move forward, whether or not they actually took "3 steps."

Not a bad idea. I was thinking more of a "Three Steps Today To Success". What's your thoughts?

Hmm, it seems a bit of a mouthful and the word order is a bit odd. A three word title has more of a zing, whether it's "AskGaryVee" or "SchoolOfGreatness" - you don't have to explain everything in the title. Okay, "3StepsNoExcuses" was four words and six syllables and retains a bit of zing, but five words seems a bit much!

I really enjoyed your post. It was fun to read. Filled with passion, and most of all for me-BE AN ACTION TAKER.
In life, you can make it happen, watch it happen or wonder what happened. I will look at your offer. Thanks

Thanks Michael for the feedback. And yes, you're right - most of all it's about taking action.
