Ok at this point I assume many of you know the basic idea here, create an info or software product, and then seek out JV partners to launch it with. Sounds so simple!! Well trust me it isn’t so simple, and obviously there is a lot more to all this than what I just described above. There is a long series of little steps invoved in order to make this happen.

It’s now the start of day 3, and I am still struggling to come up with a product to create. Having to take a day off yesterday to sort out personal crisis didn’t help either, so I suppose its still really day 2 for me.

Anyway I’ve read the very detailed manual at this stage, and all I can say is Wow, its probably the best ebook/manual I’ve ever read of the type. Michael Green is a very clever guy. There are instructions/details/systems and ideas that I would certainly never have thought of.

So the BIG question: Is it doable? Yeah I think so, although I think someone Like Lynn who is already far more immersed in this world, is off to a better start than me. Not trying to sound negative there either Lynn.

Bottom line is that I am very Optimistic.

Hi,
I just started researching internet marketing, don't have a website, don't have a product, am not well-versed in any of this arena and came across the 20K in 20 days challenge right off the bat. I am tempted to join in, but am wondering if I'm dreaming to think I can do it from my starting point. Also, the "If it sounds too good to be true..." slogan has it's place here for me. Can I get a reality check?
Thanks,
Maureen


Hi Maureen & Welcome :D

To be honest, it all depends on your attitude and your commitment to the challenge. If you WANT to make it happen, you certainly can - especially with the help of the members both here at the SSWT Forum and on the challenge forum itself.

BUT, you want to "go with your gut" on this. If you have serious doubts, then wait and take on a smaller challenge. Or stick around here and let us help you get a good feel for what's what and what you may want to get into.

It's all up to you!

I'm glad to hear you are optimistic, Fiachra. Its definitely a lot to get into. And you're right - I have certain advantages with my experience and position... but I will tell you firsthand that the whole process isnt any easier for me than it is for any other person here.

I have struggled with development, launches, the organization of it all - doing it on my own. That's the reason I joined in on this challenge right alongside you guys. Not to show you up, but because I need the same challenge, motivation and step-by-step process to get through this as anyone else.

Michael Green really impresses me. I've followed his work for years, but this really takes the cake. Not just in the toolkit and the manual, but I am watching other things he is doing behind the scenes - and I will tell you this: I know I am in the right place, learning from and following the lead of the right person!

And no worries about being behind - This is Day 2 for me, and I am still on Day 1 ;) Onward...

20K in 20 days

Thanks Lynn and Fiachra for your replies. Can I ask for a little bit more?

I get that we are marketing an information product, but thought Michael provided us with a list of products to purchase for $2-5 or so. Is it better to create your own? How big a product do we need to purchase or create? What kind of time commitment are we talking for this step?

The second step of finding JV partners is totally new also. How are these found and can someone with no web presence or established reputation at all realistically expect to find them? Is this all spelled out with templates, etc. Do we need to know how to sell in order to make this work?

Finally, given my situation, how many hours a day should I plan to work on this to start some positive cash flow in the next month?

I'm just having a hard time knowing whether this is something to dive into right now. My situation is that I need cash flow right away; I don't have months to devote many hours a day to something that won't be contributing to paying my bills.

Having said that, though, if it's completely within reach of a newbie with 4-5 hours a day to spend, I am motivated to make it work. But I need to have real confidence that putting my energy here will pay off sooner rather than later.

I know there are no guarantees, and this time pressure of having to buy it right now to get the discount is working against my being able to make a fully informed decision. But to your best ability, can you give a gut feel for what it would be like to start from where I am and how long it would take to get in the black (maybe in hours worked?).

Thanks for any insight you can provide!

I'm on day 2 of day 1 like Lynn - :D

I'm doing the read through of the manual. I was planning to start reading it at 6:00 PM last night but didn't start until 11:30 PM, oh well. I'll finish it today.

I will say I am excited so far. Yes, it's early but just what I've read so far I can see this isn't the same ol stuff out there.

You have to clear your mind, don't worry about the experience level of Lynn or others. There is always going to be someone who knows more than you and someone who knows less. :)

I still don't have access to the member only 2020 challenge forum, I'm assuming Michael and his peeps are swamped. But I've seen some negative posts pop up already on the public side of his forum. So don't spend too much time reading the forums especially if their negative.

Give it a fair chance and if it doesn't work out, well hey you tried and you get your money back but don't let other people's negative posts influence you.

Hi All - I'm in too

Hi all,
Since asking a question at Lynn's blog I've been in wtih the 20/20 challenge. I wanted to "fess up and get in on the forum posts. So far so good. I'm really ready to committed and make this happen. Hey, we all need to meet for a huge dinner somewhere after we bank our bucks at the end of this.

I DO have a question though. I've not had good experiences using elance for writing purposes. I'm also trying to find a good VA. If any of you have a heads up on a good writer to help rebrand the PLR or a good VA to do some of the support work, I'm all ears. Meanwhile, I'm doing my own work but that means even extra long hours -- so back to work. I'm glad we have this support forum.

Hi Maureen,

Everything is outlined in the manual in regards to product development and joint ventures and each of the options - and from what I can tell so far (still reading) it is very detailed.

If you can devote 3-5 hours a day for the next 3 weeks, and are committed to working through each day's steps - even if that includes extra groundwork getting answers on forums like this one - then you can succeed with this just like anyone else.

Anything you arent sure how to do, or need help with, you can get at the 20/20 Challenge Forum also - so you are going to have a great support group working alongside you to share resources and answer any questions you have.

Ultimately though, the decision is up to you. Michael offers a money-back guarantee, so we're all in it together to see what we can accomplish in 3 short weeks!

Hi ChristiMarie,

I hear you - my advice is to post what you need here on the Job Board, and you can also make requests at other forums like the Warrior Forum. There are lots of people who can do quality work at reasonable prices that are just dying to get a paying job, big or small!

Well said - and there is no competition to this challenge. Each person is in it to succeed, and as a group I am sure we can all gain resources and insight from each other along the way. In as much as I have an advantage, I can also *be* an advantage - I'll openly share any resources I have and help all that I can!

I'm on day 2 of day 1 as well :) I've only skimmed through the first couple of chapters, and I already like what I see. What I like about this challenge is that everyone can taken it as their own pace, and it's not a big deal if you span a whole 'day's tasks' over more than one day.

Let's face it, as much as you plan and schedule things, life can surprise you with things that crop up everyday, so the flexibility of this program is a big plus, and will not make you feel guilty at all. Just keep on going where you left off yesterday. Flexibility is the key for me cause these days my life is Hectic!

So I'm still reading on...

I've been in online marketing for over 4 years, mostly affiliate marketing and have has success with that. Though I've never gone into this type of income generation, so although I do have experience, this feels like totally new to me and I love it. A challenge... woo hoo :)

I'm with you and dont have any qualms about taking a few days on a step if needed and I love the structure of this challenge as a whole. I'd still love to see it work in the 3-week time span though, so I am making it a point to get past "Day 1" as quickly as I possibly can.

I'm still waiting to get access to the challenge forum too, by the way. Anyone else?

Wow! Am in

Postby ayo_hassan » Tue Oct 02, 2007 9:55 pm

I am happy to inform everyone on here that I just bought the package, and looking forward to taking the challenge with you all. I must admit , if I had not been introduced to this through Lynn Terry, I wouldn't have bought in; since am just a student without too much money to spare. But am very excited at the prospect of generating so much cash. I have sent the request for access to the 20/20 forum to Michael Green's helpdesk, but haven't received any reply. Does anyone know how long before being granted access? Once again, I look forward to making money with you all.

Congrats! Welcome to the challenge ;)

There seems to be a backlog on getting into the private forum for the challenge, but I'm sure it will all be resolved shortly.
