So I set a do-or-die goal – if I could accomplish it, I would count it as traction and keep pursuing my online career. If I didn’t hit it though, it was J-O-B time.
Talk about stressful. I worried at night, and sent out job applications during the day for jobs I wasn’t even sure I wanted. I even interviewed a few times and it looked like I had an in.
But something inside of me just really, really, really wanted to do freelance (and not starve doing it!)
Then it happened.
The goal I’d set was to double my email list during my 24-hour launch.
By the end of that 24 hours – I mean in the last two hours of it! – that number was hit EXACTLY.
That’s when it hit me.
