Dear Diary,

It was never meant to be this way.

I was supposed to be at $10k a month by now…

All I had to do was buy into a high-ticket affiliate program at $1,000 and make 10 sales each month.​

It sounded so easy.

I’m doing everything right, I think?

My engagement is through the roof…

300+ likes every time I quote Tony Robbins.​

Though not motivating enough to join my business.

Actually, I made a $1,000 sale a couple of months back…​

Beginners luck, I guess.

I’ve posted the same earnings screenshot every couple of days since, but failed to get another.

I don’t understand.

My “mentor” seems to be popping high ticket sales all over the place…​


Perhaps he’s doing the same as me?

He hasn’t been much help anyway…​

Just told me to “give more value” when I asked why my inbox was empty.

That’s just it…​

I can’t give any more!

I’m churning out thousands of words per week with nothing to show for it.

I’ve even bought business books to create more content…

Real ones, with paper pages!​

Today, it took me three hours to write a post…​

Based on Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs”.​

I didn’t understand most of it, psychology or something…

But it’s “value”, right?​

800 words of solid gold.

Not a single enquiry.

Still, it got plenty of likes.

My first commenter responded with a cheery “Good Morning!”​

I posted at 8pm.

This is exhausting and I can’t keep it up.

I feel burnt out and ready to quit.

Maybe I should have a chat with David…​

You know, that Welsh guy who writes the posts.​

He seems to have this figured out.​

I look forward to reading his posts…

And he actually seems to have fun with them.

This hasn’t been fun for me for a long time.

I need to start over.

Do this marketing stuff properly.

He’ll know what to do.​

I’ll send him a message now.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.


What on earth was I thinking? 🙄
