If you want to make a change, write it down!
Do you write out your goals and plans? Have you ever thought of an idea that you’d do whatever it would take to make it happen?

Don’t make life harder than it already is, put yourself in a position to succeed. One of the best ways you can do this is by writing out your thoughts on paper. In today’s world that may sound “old school” but it works! Scott has been stressing the value of writing things down for quite some time and his guest, Kevin Sanderson agrees.

You need people in your corner who will support you.
Who do you have in your corner cheering you on as you build your ecommerce business? While it would be nice to have a supportive coach who guides you every step of the way, that is not realistic. You can surround yourself with family members who encourage you, and you can join groups who will help you keep your eye on the prize. Kevin has been a TAS follower just like you, he attended workshops and learned from Scott’s helpful lessons over the years. All of the support and encouragement that Kevin received from the TAS community played a huge role in helping him get his business off of the ground. As much as you’d like it to be true, you can’t do it all alone. Make sure you have the right people in your corner!
