Bad Will Happen, What Are Your Going To Do?

Just Breathe.

The reason to get beta testers is to make sure everything is working, not perfectly, but as close to perfect as possible.

My eBay course beta testers were in love with the user interface, the membership portal worked great, however, 3 of the 5 payments did not go through, not only it’s technical issues with the payment gateway, it was also a matter of approval, that payment gateway customer service gave me hell and wasted 2 hours of my time on the phone with them. They said it would be a couple of days to resolve then this may happen again!

I hung up the phone, and just took a long breath.

I then decided to use another payment gateway, it will take 4 to 6 days to setup from beginning to end. This is why I am pushing the launch another 2 weeks, the new official launch date is November 10th.

I am OK with that, I made my peace with it, I learned a while ago that bad things will happen in business, no matter how perfect it is, you just have to breathe and pause for a second, and find a workaround or a solution for it. Everything is going to be fine.

My Biggest eBay Project Since 2008

In February 2008 I started working on my eBay course that was delivered online by video, it took me about 6 months to launch it back then, we had so much success that we got an offer to sell the entire site with all materials for a lot of cash, that’s when we sold WAHOL.com (stands for Work At Home OnLine). I had a blast creating the course and enjoyed answering questions, the best thing about it was not the amount of money I made, but it was the success of my previous members, and I only sold it after everyone got what they wanted from it. Only 2 years later the company that bought it was almost out of business due to some none related bad investments, I offered to buy the domain back and they agreed.

Ever since I sold it, I had extra time to work on my other ventures, affiliate marketing was a big thing and I was making a decent income with very minimal work, as well as continuing teaching my eBay classes and selling of course.

I have been working with my team on a new eBay course all build from scratch, sharing everything I learned throughout the years. My past clients will tell you I have always over delivered information (good useful info that is), and I can tell you that I really get a lot of joy of seeing results, in fact, I tell everyone how proud I am of their progress.

Today, I am launching my course!

Though everything is completely different from what it was 8 years ago, I made sure I include everything I know that will either start you a business from scratch or expand your business, whether you already sell on eBay or not, this course is for everyone.

Throughout the next 2 weeks, I will share more details about it, but I can tell you now it is completely worth it.

The official cart open date is Tuesday October 27th, and it will close down on Sunday November 1st.

I have a few tiers launching this course, including beta testers, email subscribers, affiliates and JV’s, and then we have a huge ad campaign including online, newspapers and possibly TV spots. If you want to keep up to date, you can do 1 of 2 things:

  1. You can join my periscope if you download the app and follow 1LX. (Psssst… I will be scoping today at 3pm EST).
  2. Sign up for the mail list on the right side of this article.

I will have a few short classes that will be extremely useful for free during the 2 weeks launch, the 2 methods above are the only 2 ways to get the free classes notifications.

I can not tell how truly excited I am about this, it’s going to be awesome 🙂

New Plans! V. 1.5

It has been almost a week since I announced the upcoming changing for this blog, However, we have faced so many difficulties with the theme that we decided to use, and our in house designer (my friend John) was not available to help us. And a lot of new changes in the business just happened this last week, first eBay’s new policy with digital products (which equals about 20% of my business) and then the all new wordpress 2.5 release and some problem we had with images and the season finale of the Celebrity Apprentice. I will post more details about all in future posts.

So we decided to stick with the old design with some minor modifications, but we will fulfill everything else in the update announcement.

I am glad to announce that our new Services, Jobs, classifieds and photo gallery pages will be published within the course of the next 24 hours.

And you’re in for a treat!

I have come to the point that all the old series of posts should be compiled, So not only I will compile them in one place for you, I will also try to complete all parts in all my posts so you can have all the information that you’ve been waiting for.

Even Better:

I will start helping you make money online and master the art of being an entrepreneur online and to even achieve the superstar entrepreneur status.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them below and I will do my best to answer all. 🙂
