A few weeks ago, I was sat at home watching daytime TV – now don’t hate on me! I wasn’t feeling too great and needed a bit of respite…
I was watching This Morning and Holly Willoughby was interviewing this young girl who was making $30,000 per video on TikTok.
Over 1 million views per upload – 3 cents per view – $30,000 per video! That’s insane.
But what’s even crazier, is that all she does in these videos is put things in her giant mouth…
Now hold up- get your mind out of the gutter!
It’s all good clean fun here.
This young girl is said to have the largest female mouth in the world. And so she’s made herself a good living entertaining people on social media by putting giant things in her giant mouth.
She demonstrated by fitting two full-sized, whole doughnuts in her mouth live on the telly.
I have to say, I was impressed – and equally a little jealous.
$30k a day from just filming a little 30-second video!
My mind started plotting…
What could I do on TikTok that would net me $30k a day? Challenges? Chilli eating? Container spotting?
Now, thankfully, I’ve had a bit of coaching and I’m pretty self-aware. I know my weaknesses – and I know how to spot Shiny Object Syndrome when it rears its ugly head.
Shiny Object Syndrome is the curse of the entrepreneur. It’s the never-ending attraction to something new, something exciting – something that could be a huge success.
But it’s dangerous.
If you leave it unchecked you waste your time pursuing too many ideas and never actually committing, digging deep and making one a success.
So while I’d love to be a social media star – I know it’s best that I stay focused and double down on what I know best – Millennium Cargo.
As we reach the end of the year it’s a good time to think about focus. To get your goals mapped out for the new year and plot your steps to success.
A solid plan, clear goals and a thorough understanding of why they matter to you will help you avoid Shiny Object Syndrome and keep you focused on your success.
So what about you? Have you got crystal clear clarity and focus? Or do you fall prey to the entrepreneur’s curse?
