How to become famous: Accepting and Taking Risk

Accepting and Taking Risk

Depending on your definition of famous, I think I would now, in a most humble way, say that I am on my way to become famous.

I use StatCounter for tracking site statistics for this and several other blogs that I write. I also use Google Analytics, but StatCounter really made me see something interesting. My articles, for this and my other blogs have been read by someone on every continent. I am aiming to be read by someone in every country, and of course the English speaking countries have the highest read rate, but I'm just stoked that my articles are being picked up by interested readers around the world. How cool is that?

If I didn't get over my fear of letting others read my writings, I would never have been able to claim anything from that last paragraph. I took a risk and so far, I am becoming known around the world. Its a very small population that has read my works, but that's okay for now. I expect that it will spread after you forward this article or any of the others to your friends using the email link at the bottom of the page.

If I can make a small dent using only a minimal amount of time and effort, what can I do with an hour a day? Or better yet, what can you do?

Ayniae,

I'm glad to see you are taking some initiative to get a product out there on the market.

The short answer is that you have to sell your idea to others now. Not to individuals, but to companies who will act as a marketing channel for your product.

Since your product is in cosmetics or personal hygiene, I would recommend that you 1) have a means of manufacturing or license to manufacture your product in volume.
2) Ensure you have a clear statement of ownership or patent. 3) Build relationships with purchasing agents at national chain stores such as Walmart, Walgreens, or other stores.
4) If you prefer to sell your idea or license it, you may wish to build a relationship with other hair care products manufactures and salons.

Good luck and keep me posted on your progress!
