My Lunch With ProBlogger Darren Rowse

My Lunch With ProBlogger Darren Rowse | Cherie Bobbins

I had to consciously refrain from throwing my hands in the air and getting my holler-back girl on, dropping all the, ‘uh’, ‘what’, and ‘f*ck yeahs’ in between each sentence.

Like most bloggers, while I listened to ProBlogger Darren Rowse speak, my head was nodding as I identified with a lot of what was pouring out of his mouth.

And for anyone who knows me, or has met me in person, knows that I’m a ballsy mo-fo. So after introducing myself, in the next sentence I threw my hat in the ring to speak on stage at ProBlogger.

Ya know, cause I’ve got so much good stuff in my head I want to share it with as many of you babes as possible! And not so secretly, I love to talk to people!

He spoke about the 7 Habits Of Lucky Entrepreneurs.

These were the notes I took.

Habit 1: Avid Learners – Hungry for knowledge.

Habit 2: Fascinated with problems – Set up problem traps, ask people what their challenges are.

Habit 3: Practiced curiosity – Ask ‘what if’ questions about that problem.

Habit 4: Experiment prolifically – Test ideas

Habit 5: Watch for sparks. What gives me energy and what gives others energy

Habit 6: Builders, initiators, constructors and creators. Are you working responsively or constructively?

Habit 7: Quick to pivot. Agile enough in business to change tack.

Of all these habits, none of them are personality based. They are all things that can be learned, practiced and honed to improve your blog and business growth.

So fundamentally, luck has very little to do with most entrepreneurial success. There’s being in the right place at the right time, and then there’s being aware and prepared to grasp opportunity. They are two vastly different things.

What stuck out for me the most, was habits 2-4, but 2 in particular.

Habit 2: Fascinated with problems – Set up problem traps, ask people what their challenges are.”

That right there, is you collecting your qualitative data, finding people’s points of pain.

Habit 3: Practiced curiosity – Ask ‘what if’ questions about that problem.

This is you brainstorming a solution to solve their pain.

Habit 4: Experiment prolifically – Test ideas.

This is you testing those ideas to see what works.

And these exact 3 things are but a snippet of what I teach in Analytics To Actions, my new eCourse which will drop on the 13th of July.

Objectively acquiring and systemising the way you collect your feedback will make the biggest difference to your blog and online business growth. Heeding this, you will create content and products that your audience not only wants or needs, they are blatantly asking you for that help to solve their pain.

If you’re all like, ‘blah systems, poo analytics and WTF is qualitative data?’, I make it super easy to understand in this post here.
