I just finished listening to a podcast by Pat Flynn over at Smart Passive Income. In his podcast Pat, interviews Noah Kagan, who is the Founder of AppSumo and was among the first employees at both Facebook and Mint.

 

Noah goes on to say that when you have a business goal you should share that goal with your audience.

 

This is something I’ve believed for awhile... but…. belief can only get you halfway there. Action is needed to validate that belief. More on this action below…

I started this post by stating that I was going to share our business goal with you - and that’s what I’m going to do.

 

Our goal, before we launch, is to have at least 1,000 beta users signed up and eager to use PolitePersistence.

 

 

I just shared with you 78 ways that someone can use PolitePersistence to save time, energy and resources.

 

If you are already signed up for our beta launch then I encourage you to share this with someone who you think it can benefit by either using the social sharing links below or by emailing them this post.

 

 

 

When they get here all they need to do is sign up below:

 

 

 

I’ll let you know when we hit our goal in the comments.

 

I look forward to helping you take advantage of more opportunities and saving more time in the near future.
