Hey Grinders! I wanted to start this Monday off on the right foot, and what better way to do just that than to offer you Grinders whom read our blog, support us and share our content some cash.
Last time we did a contest – It became and remains the #2 post by popularity on the blog here. (HA!)
So, this contest is super-simple. All you have to do is answer this one question (it’s a 2-part question though) by commenting below this blog post. We will share this across Social Media too – but the responses must be here on the blog. (I’m not chasing all the replies we will get across social, that would be overwhelming).
The question is:
What’s your #1 obstacle keeping you from achieving (what you think) is success in your respective marketing business? And why?
Now if you’ve achieved a “success” pillar, congrats! But, I would imagine there are a ton of Grinders that read this blog who have achieved successful goals and feats, which is why I know their answers are going to be gold. It seems every successful person I meet, they all seem to never settle, never give in, never become complacent. They are always moving forward and striving for that next “success pillar.”
Now, if you are just starting out in your Marketing journey, you feel free to answer to! From newbies to advanced, let me know in the comments below what your #1 obstacle is from keeping you from achieving success? And why?
We will determine the 3 winners on this coming Friday – October 18th at 3:00 pm CST.
Apologies for the weird time on Friday (it’s my kids weekend).
The top 3 answers will be awarded $100 each. Use that $$$ to fund an affiliate campaign. Maybe pay a month of your hosting bill. If you don’t answer – watch out for that banana peel on the road. Karma’s a fierce bitch who never forgets.
Well, it’s Friday and it’s been one busy week! We had a lot of Grinders partake in this easy contest for their chance to win $100.
I would like to thank everyone that answered the question. We had 53 comments total since Monday afternoon!
I also would like to say – this was hard. I literally spent 2+ hours last night reading over all the comments – then again today returning from picking up my children. There were a lot of great answers. Enough that I’m going to start doing this once a month, for a week.
Click on the “Older Commments” link at the bottom of this post – you can read all the answers as. There is a mountain of awesome information in the comments.
I don’t want to string this out any longer but I want to say thank you to everyone who gave an answer – and HANG TOUGH if you feel like you’re in a tight spot. I’m going start addressing some of the answers and how I got over them. Believe me – I’ve faced every single problem that’s listed in the comments below. More than once.
Starting next week, I will be addressing “complacency” capital, patience, fear (there’s a lot of them – the main one you need to be is “fear of yourself”) – More on these later this week.
For right now, I didn’t pick a best comment. I simply picked three really good ones – because there were a lot of good ones.
Here are the three winners: (Links straight to their comments)

For everyone that answer, you all blew my mind. I knew. I KNEW there was a little beast inside some of you, wanting to come and express itself.
Starting this coming week, Brent, Ryan and myself are going to start addressing these issues we all face.
