When I met Dennis on The Third Tribe (affiliate link) forums, I was impressed by his drive to help people pursue their passions through their careers. This post talks about a subject near and dear to my heart: taking action. One of the things I like best about leveraging the web is how fast you can move once you have decide to get started. Enjoy and don't forget, if you have a favorite tool which you'd like to talk about right here, write up a post and send it in!
What separates those who are successful from those who fall by the wayside? Is it that they know more? No. Is it that they went to a better school? Absolutely not. Is it that they have a better support system around them? No way!
The truth is as blunt as it is simple. Those who get things done implement. They take action and they get things done. Quickly.

Alright, it's confession time.
In all my dealings with you guys, my readers, I urge, cajole, whine and basically just stop short of berating you to use software online to get things done.
I truly believe in software online; in its power to save time and money and how it enables you to implement new processes. I've written a 70-plus page ebook on the subject. I have researched endlessly to find the best tools online and I've created courses to teach folks how to use those tools.

I spent money on an offline solution.

I met Dawn on The Third Tribe (affiliate link) forums. When I read that she was looking for a new time-tracking tool, I asked her to record her journey and final results so we could bring it to you guys; she was kind enough to do so in excellent detail.

Let me be up front with you: I know that this post can be seen a thinly disguised marketing ploy to tell you about my new course, "Earn More by Finding Freelance Writing Jobs Online".
Yes, it can be seen that way (and I DO want you to buy my course so I can keep writing here and creating more courses for you), but what I really want to do is talk about the "course behind the course"; the core reason why I create courses like "Earn More by Finding Freelance Writing Jobs Online" and write this blog.
Like I said to a friend the other day, "When is a course about finding freelance writing jobs online really about learning the value of the Web? When it's a Leverage the Web course!"
It's all about Leveraging the Web.
