Another Monday Morning Website Tip by
Marcus Rangel

So I’m going a little off of my normal digital tip for this week because it’s officially DAY 1 for me.

I know just like every project I’m sure you’ve been part of in your life there is the initial excitement, then the “oh crap” moment of thinking how are we going to get through this, and then hopefully if you are like me and plow through it you get to the end and say, “wow, look how far we came.” Today marks my first day of being a self employed entrepreneur, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Although this is day 1 of going all in with IMC, the “oh crap” moment already happened. Here’s why..

You all most likely know that I’ve been getting up every morning at 5 a.m. to start my day off and the good news is, that isn’t changing. I’ve found that for me personally, there isn’t a more fresh time to start the day off right before the noise of the day starts. The key to most successful people I’ve listened to is they have a very strict routine for their spiritual life, work, and their workouts…. and most of them do that early in the morning. 

My “oh crap” moment actually hit Anna and I when we officially hit our goals that we set of  going all in with IMC and realizing their was going to be a change from what I have been doing for the last 13 years. So technically it wasn’t even a bad “oh crap” moment LOL!

What’s going to be the biggest change?

My availability honestly. Although I was able to do more than I could ever even expect from myself in the limited time I had in the mornings, there was only so much capacity and work I could do. This changes now and the speed that I was able to bring with the work at my full time job now comes to the clients that work with me and IMC. Speed equals trust, and speed along with quality is what you can count on me for.

Have you heard of the phrase “Ready, Fire, Aim?”

So many times I feel we get too caught up in perfecting every project, every decision, and ultimately paralyze our progress by overthinking everything. If you are ready to make projects and get them out the door quick while “aiming” to adapt based on the data we see then I’d love to talk through your next project to collaborate on.

P.S. I know I promised a follow up to the Sales Campaign from last week, don’t worry I’ve got that on my radar to have ready for next Monday!

About Marcus Rangel

I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.

I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.

When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Topeka, KS.

So Saturday, yes Saturday made it officially one year since I hung up my corporate cleats.

What have I learned since writing that “day 1” email a year ago? Well, turns out quite a bit :), I felt it was worth of a top 10 list for a year. 1. Anna, my wife, is and will be my best friend and co-worker, ever.I always thought that we would be apart from 8-5 during most business days since my days of signing up for a full time job. There really isn’t a…
