      • Why some bloggers make the leap and others don’t. (It has everything to do with what they don’t do!)
      • 3 MUST-ANSWER questions that will shape your blog’s journey.

      • AND MORE!
    • Imagine knowing exactly what you need to focus on despite all the distractions pulling you in a million directions.
    • Imagine if in a mere year you accomplish more than you ever thought possible, feel a sense of satisfaction, and actually make progress toward this larger vision of what you want your blog and business to do for you.
    • You don’t flinch, get panicky, or try different tactics hoping one sticks. You have a plan of action and every decision you make for your blog is calculated and intentional. That’s the power of the process and the promise behind The Blog Startup!
