500 Plan update 3

Life, life, life it just keeps happening so fast… I didn’t update for 3 weeks!! Bad Jessica…. Here you go…

goals, planning, actualAs of 06/26 here are how we stack up against our goals:

1. $500 (P)lan : $0 (A)ctual – No money, no plans of how we will make money on this site. So I am not sure this goal is realistic anymore. We have put ZERO effort into this goal… which is not really the plan.

2. 500 Followers (P) : 26  (A) – A few more followers in the last few weeks. Interesting. I can see that we have not been putting in the effort to actually make this site exciting and grabbable.

3. 150 posts/podcasts/interviews live (P) : 53 (A) – This means we are a little behind. But no need to worry yet. We will get back on the horse, here.

In the last few weeks lots of life has been happening. And sometimes that distracts you from what you are doing. I can definitely say that has been the case for me. I am now complete with my previous employment and creating new sources of income that will provide the new cashflow that I am up to making. Katie is also on her way in developing her very own podcast that will inspire the nation! Looking forward to that getting live!

What’s holding you back?


Are day dream about your unicorn?  Don’t look at your computer like I am crazy.  You know what I am talking about!

I am talking about that illusive fabled career or business that you want to start.  You know the one that you are sure will fulfill your life and have all of your troubles fade to the background of your  life?

Here is what I want to know:

  • What is that job/business?
  • What is in the way of you starting or pursuing it?
  • What would having that job/business make possible in your life?
  • How long have you been waiting?

Once you have answered those questions, I want you to answer:

  • What is the first action I could take toward my unicorn?
  • Who could hold me accountable for or what structure would support me in taking that action?
  • Who do I know who is doing something like __(insert your unicorn here)__?

There you are!  Now you have a plan.  Do you know what is missing?

No!  Well don’t fret – I do.  The only thing that is missing now is ACTION!

Smart people have long said, “Fail to plan, plan to fail.”  And while that may be true, you are going to fail anyway.  I mean really, it is just part of the journey of starting something be it a new hobby, job, business or relationship.  Failures will teach you what you need to learn.  If you adopt that mentality, you could look foward to the failures.  You could swing full out in life knowing that whatever you needed to learn would be brought to your attention.

Planning may be important, but action is imperative.  No action, no results – PERIOD!  End of story.

So now what?  What are you going to take action on, and by when?

500 Plan update 2

Okay… exciting things have been happening here at Mogul in the Making.

goals, planning, actualAs of 06/01 here are how we stack up against our goals:

1. $500 (P)lan : $0 (A)ctual – So… no money yet. We have however chosen to create an LLC in Nevada, after research, and will have that done by Monday so we can start adding dollars, it may start in nickels but yay!!

2. 500 Followers (P) : 21  (A) – Only a few more this week… hmmm… we need to kick this up! Although, I listened to a great podcast about how this is really for the long term. Blogging is about the journey not about the instant gratification that we have all become so accustomed to.

3. 150 posts/podcasts/interviews live (P) : 39 (A) – 8 new posts this week! Perfectly on track. So great.


Katie and I talk  a lot about MITM and what we should do with it and why. And on one side this really isn’t how either one of us plan on becoming millionaires. For both of us this is a platform to use to journal our journey for you all and ourselves. I am “not a morning” person. Yet for the last like 5 weeks I have gotten out of bed between 5:30 and 5:50 and been on a call by 6:30. It is only because it is scheduled on a radio website and Katie is waiting. Otherwise I would DEFINITELY not wake up at that time. But the truth is it gets me moving and started on my day. My whole day goes differently on those days. So keep on watching out and try some of the stuff we do, we are learning and trying. We will come out on the other side with success but probably not before some more failure.

500 Plan update

I just re-read that and thought that I had said I would update it monthly but I told you all I would update it weekly. I am so sorry. I apologize for letting that slip. There has been lots of progress on this and I haven’t told any of you about it. I am recommitting to doing a weekly Sunday post on this topic.

goals, planning, actualAs of 5/26 here are how we stack up against our goals:

1. $500 (P)lan : $0 (A)ctual – Sadly we have not figured out / implemented the money making part yet. We do have a plan for it though and we will see that number increase in the coming month.

2. 500 Followers (P) : 17  (A) – This number may not seem large but we are actually quite thrilled with it. We have not posted a FB page, Pintrest page or any other social tool. Once we do that you will really see this number climb. We are holding back for the money making part. And honestly this whole having a full time job thing is really holding up the full court press… 

3. 500 150 posts/podcasts/interviews live (P) : 31 (A) – One thing about setting goals is that they need to be realistic and achievable  I just went and calculated how many we would need to do per week in order to hit 500 by August 31 and it is 18, which is silly. Even if we were each posting everyday we wouldn’t hit that number. So I am going to adjust this down to 150. If we each post 2 a week and post our 4 calls per week that is 8 and then there are 15 weeks between now and then. So 8 x 15 = 120 + 31 we already have = 151. And I am going to generously give us a 1 post cushion. 🙂
