Money Maker: Create a Live, Recorded or Virtual Tour
Do you have a lot of knowledge about your city or town? Do you know where all the hidden gems, historically significant sites, or best restaurants are?
Maybe, instead, you have a favorite vacation spot that you’ve visited many times and know the place almost as well as the locals.
You could create a tour business to share your knowledge with visitors. With travel opening and closing due to the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic, now is a great time to encourage people to visit the hidden gems near home.
Tours could be done as live, in-person walking or bus tours; as pre-recorded self-guided tours that individuals or groups can listen to on their phones, or virtual tours.

Lack of Major Progress Means Failure
Do you feel that if you’re not making significant progress every single day, then you’re a failure? Maybe you have a list of goals that you want to achieve and that list haunts you because there are too few check marks on the page. It’s a reminder of all that you haven’t achieved. Sometimes feeling like you must do big things, results in doing nothing at all.
Your limiting belief may be that lack of major progress on your goals means that you’re a failure. You constantly criticize and berate yourself for not achieving more. For not being more successful. For not accomplishing more, faster.
Any progress is a Win.
To shift from this belief, you must understand that even the smallest progress on your goals is a big win. Small bits of progress on a consistent basis adds up over time to big wins. You may not be making huge amounts of progress on a daily basis, and that’s OKAY. Slow and steady wins the race.
Your new belief is that any progress is a win. Did you take one small step toward your goal? That’s a win! Even if you only do one thing per day or per week toward your goals, that’s progress and should be celebrated. Don’t judge your success by whether you’re making big jumps forward, but by your consistency.
Check out this week’s book, One Small Step Can Change Your Life for guidance on making those consistent small steps and repeat “Any progress is a win!“
What We’re Reading
One Small Step Can Change Your Life by Robert Maurer, Ph.D. Is a guide to the kaizen, the art of making great and lasting change in habits or processes through small steady steps. Kaizen is an ancient philosophy captured in the statement of Tao Te Ching: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” This is a great book to read just before you make those New Year’s resolutions.
We’ve shared a lot of books and we will continue to do so. The idea is not necessarily for you to build a library – though you can. The idea is to purchase (or borrow from the library) those books that are relevant to your situation, that can help you to conquer any blocks in your mindset that may be preventing you from reaching for your wildest dreams.
