If you're new around here you might not know this.
Last year Cupcake adopted our beautiful son “Dong” (no, that's not his real name)
It was a long process that took nearly three years.
There were times where we were frustrated and we wanted things to move faster, but they told us from the start it might take up to three years.
In the beginning we had to go through psychological exams, home studies with social workers, hours of classes, and mountains of paperwork. Not to mention the big monetary investment we made.
We plowed through all the preliminary stuff because we were so eager to be parents.
We got everything done in record time. The folks at the agency said they had never seen anyone move through the process so quickly.
Funny thing is, this was the easy part.
We had a checklist of things that needed to be done and we got them done.
We didn't realize how hard the next part would be —- the waiting.
It took us around 3 months to get all the paperwork, classes, and approvals done.
Then it was silent.
Months passed with no updates.
Months turned to years.
It got to the point when any of our friends or family asked about our adoption it was a sore subject for us.
Then, in March of 2016 we got a call from the agency telling us we've been matched.
The entire world melted away and there was just me – Cupcake – and our son (who we hand't met yet.)
You'd think that things got better, but it was bitter-sweet.
Why? Because now we knew who our son was, but we weren't allowed to talk to him. They sent pictures, they sent info, but we couldn't see him for another five months.
There was our son – waiting for us to come get him and we still had to wait.
Those five months felt longer than the previous two years we waited to be matched.
We looked at his pictures every day and wondered what he was like, how he acted, what made him smile, what he liked to eat.
In August 2016 we travelled to the Philippines to meet our son for the very first time and bring him home.
Things haven't been the same ever since.
It's like this in business too.
You decide to do something BIG. You're excited at the idea and you jump in without looking back. You make some progress, then things slow down and get quite.
That's when you gotta decide whether you'll keep going or turn back.
The people that succeed will push through the ups and downs to get what they truly want.
The people who fail will quit as soon as the new-ness wears off.
If it wasn't for Cupcake I might not have made it through that long process and if you ask her, I think she'd same the same about me.
When you're doing something hard you need people in your corner who will stay strong when the going gets tough.
And that's exactly what Cupcake and I do for our clients at The Podcast Factory.
We stay tough through thick and thin to help them achieve their big goals.
It ain't gonna be easy, it ain't gonna be fast, but if you stick with it and trust the process you will get what you want.
We're extending our Podcast family right now.
Maybe you've been on the fence about starting your show, maybe you're scared of how long it will take to get started, or all the technical stuff.
Maybe you don't have a lot of time, maybe you don't know if you can get the results you're looking for.
This fear you have is keeping you from doing the things you want to do and should be doing. Every day you put it off more competitors are taking up your market share and selling their inferior solutions to your people. Why are you letting them do that?
No matter what you're facing, we've been through it all before and we can help you figure it out.
There's only one way to know for sure, book a strategy call with me and I'll dive deep into your business to find out what you really want and tell you if I can help you get there.
If I can't help, I'll point you in the right direction.
