My January-February 2015 Monthly Report

January-Februray-2015-Monthly-Report
Hi, long time no see! I’ve been very busy and overwhelming with stuffs around me, including my on-going final draft of the new Kindle eBook, preparation for an upcoming online course that I’ve been thinking about it for a while and I really want to jump on this new opportunity. I want to tell you the truth that I still have no idea how to create online courses, especially with Udemy platform. So during the beginning of this year, I’ve been working so hard to push the new Kindle eBook to the next level. So this eBook will be part of my script on online course that I will create later on after I’ve done publishing this eBook on the Kindle platform and might be with other market places like JVZoo or ClickBank. Well, I will be deciding this later. So how about your business? What have you been up to lately? Have you ever been struggling with something? You can share idea or whatever you want with me by commenting below.

For me, this year is going so fast. It seems like the New Year just came across, then this month is March already. I haven’t been updating my Monthly Report for over 3 months, since last post. So I will not go down in detail on December 2014 Monthly Report, since it was already covered within 2014 Income Report and there was not much update on this month. This post will be cover about what was going on in January and February 2015. OK, let’s see what was going on these months!

What was happening in January 2015?

Lost over $300 with unacceptable results of eBook translation (Thai to English)

I have been writing eBook & this blog for a while, every time it takes me around 2 hours to complete 1000-word about writing. So in Sunday’s afternoon, after I went back from my long vacation, I was sitting at Starbucks near my house as usual and tried to write an entire eBook, page by page, by myself. Since I didn’t have much time to write every day. So I came across an internet and find any ideas that could help me with this. After an hour of research, finally I had got an idea. Why I didn’t hire someone to help me translate the material that I already had in Thai language into English. So I was ready to give it a try. I posted a job, waited for freelancer translators bid and offered their price. Since this was the first time I tried this service. So I needed to carefully select the right candidate for me. I was asking for their example of Thai to English translation and see how quality they were. After a week, I was choosing the girl and working with her for the rest of the translation process. It took her almost 3 weeks to complete this job.

First time I thought that I could rewrite all material that was missing and incorrect meaning from her translation. But it was completely painful, because It was so many incorrect sentences and I needed to rewrite myself. That’s why I was changing my mind and hiring a ghostwriter to help me fixed this.

Lacked of focus and Rushed into New Business Model with no time

I was thinking about doing Amazon Seller & a TeeSpring Business model for a long time. If you’re working full-time and doing online business as a side – business, you’ll completely understand what I mean. I’ve had limit of time each week. So after I was trying to learn this business model for a couple of weeks. Now I knew that I haven’t got much time to cover what I really want to do. One reason I was lacking in focus from my goals of 2015 that I published last year.

So I’ve changed my mind and continued for the current project. This helped me a lot, so I’ve had more focusing on the task each day without distracting from what I still didn’t need to do.

What was happening in February 2015?

Hired Ghost Writer to Help Me Improve eBook Quality

writing-first-book

He saved my life. Since I found him via Elance and we were working really hard throughout this month to make a better flow of sentences, free of grammatical error and a better quality of this eBook. I will let you know when this eBook is ready to be purchased. This eBook is all about “Amazon Affiliate Niche Site: The Complete Guide”.

Part of a mini-mastermind group from DynamitCircle

I’ve been invited to the mini mastermind group with people from the same level in DynamitCircle. We’ve discussed and finally we’ll meet each other via Google Hangout at 5:00 AM (My time in Bangkok) every Friday. So I need to wake up early on Friday every week. J Since I’ve been reading Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod for a while and I really want to do it myself. This would be a good chance that I can apply Miracle Morning into my life. Hope that this is going to be successful, since I’m not a morning person, Hahaha!

Long-term Adsense Website

site-flipping

I’ve been building a new long-term website, which I’ll monetize with Adsense first, then would be high-payout affiliate program and information product. This website is still in an early stage. I haven’t built any backlinks yet, just post the content every day.

  • Hey Raweewan,

    Sorry to hear about the unacceptable translation from Thai to English. Outsourcing work is also one of the things I struggle most with because I always think that I could have done it better myself. Unfortunately, we can’t be everywhere at once!

    • Hi Tom, Yeah me too. The right outsourcing work and VA are hard to find sometime. All we need to do is trial & error to find them. 🙂

  • wkhojoseph

    You can try to use trial article to hire new VA next time, example you can mention on your job description saying that this is a trial article and only pay $2, if is good I will let you translate the whole ebook and the whole project is about $200
