Do you feel like you’re putting more into your business than you’re getting back? Whether that’s finances, time, or energy, you’re not the only one. I've got an actual rocket scientist as my special guest on the podcast this week. Travis Albritton is an aerospace engineer who felt like he was wasting his life and wanted to create something bigger, more purposeful, and more impactful. Travis decided to start an online business and founded a program called the Digital Missionary Academy. He is also the host of the Practical Christian Podcast. I asked Travis to join me on the podcast today so he could share his journey as he’s built his business, because I think it’s one that many can relate to. Travis dreamed of leaving his day job job and creating an online business, but in the first year he had trouble selling his course, so he’s had to figure out how to overcome setbacks and get better and better. On today’s episode, you will learn how he overcame many obstacles, but most importantly, you will learn what kept him from giving up on his dream of creating a business so that he could have deeper purpose in his life. On Today’s Show You’ll Learn: The importance of choosing a life that is fulfilling to you How to get back up when things don’t go as planned Why it’s a mistake to think you’re smarter than Facebook The value of building an email list How to get in front of the right people How you can learn from every mistake Why Travis transitioned from a course to a membership How Travis overcame anxiety and panic attacks around webinars How Travis started to get some traction with his ads The importance of giving things enough time to succeed Why you have to be willing to not be profitable in order to learn how to become profitable Travis has learned so many hard but valuable lessons as he’s built his business, and it was a great experience to sit down and ask him all about his journey. If you’re someone who feels unfulfilled at your current 9 to 5 and dreams of a life with deeper purpose, make sure to tune in to this powerful episode. When most online course creators try to figure out what makes other course creators successful, they usually start by asking, “what are they doing?” If this sounds familiar (I know it does to me) I want you to know that you're asking the wrong question. The better question to ask is “what am I doing that they're not doing?” It can be hard to answer that question for yourself because you're too close to your own business, and that’s where I want to help. There is a brand new community of like-minded online course creators waiting for you inside the Optimized CEO Facebook group who are getting unstuck in their business. This is my brand new, totally free Facebook community. I am so excited about it, and you can join us right now. Go to www.rickmulready.com/group. We'll see you there.
