Workng Through the Overwhelming

It's been a very hectic week trying to get the web site optimized and get some cash flowing in. As I work I'm feeling more unsure and uneasy about my abilities to pull this off. It all seems so overwhelming; getting traffic to my site and getting them to buy, making time for more designs, checking emails and reading books on SEO, which is a little over my head at the moment. How will I do all this? Where am I going to find the time? It's overwhelming. My dreams are SO BIG and I have no idea how I'm going to make them a reality. I try and remind myself that anybody that has ever done anything, didn't know HOW they were going to do it, just that they were going to do it. I also hear that saying in my head that I so love to believe is absolute truth "Leap and the net shall appear". Of course when I get to the edge of the cliff, I start to doubt. I need to be clever and trusting like Indiana Jones, when he steps down in a leap of faith and lands his foot on solid ground. When he sees he hasn't fallen to his death, he then grabs out a bag of sand and tosses it onto the "invisible" bridge and all of a sudden it's presence is clear as day. If I could just find my bag of sand...........now where did I leave it?

I decided it was time to take a step back. Why am I doing all this? Answer: because I know I was given a skill and I know I'm suppose to use it. How am I going to do it? One step at a time, with some help. OK, where do I get the help from? No one I know has done this, so I can't ask them. Angela suggested we go on the internet and see if there were any classes being offered. We both started a search and I found a local place right away that offered classes. I called them and found someone to help. The man who talked to me does SEO for numerous companies. We talked for a bit and I could hear in his voice that he was a genuinely nice guy who really wanted to help us out. What a blessing-a guardian angel of sorts to help me sort through the information and finally understand this foreign land of selling online. I'm still feeling a little overwhelmed, trying to get everything done in a very limited amount of time, but at least now I have help. Maybe I've found that bag of sand. We'll find out tomorrow when we meet him for breakfast.

Maybe things are going to start lining up for us in ways I can't yet see.
