Just Keep Going!

Sometimes Life happens. I mentioned in my last post that I have been helping my mother deal with the passing of her sister. She passed 2 weeks ago. The service was this past Saturday and what a beautiful service it was for a beautiful lady.  I have spent a lot of time with my mother and would not have it any other way.

Navigating through this challenging time has set me back a bit in building my business. It’s been a valuable lesson, though. I’ve come to realize that life can throw unexpected challenges our way, and it’s important to accept that “Life Happens.”

When we encounter obstacles (which we inevitably will), the key is to persist in building our business, even if it means progressing at a slower pace than we’d like. The mantra here is to just keep going, keep plugging along. Any forward movement is definitely better than no movement at all. Obstacles are part of the journey, and the goal is to learn how to keep moving forward.

Take this blog, for instance. It’s been a two-week journey, and yes, I missed my initial deadline. But instead of getting mad at myself, I decided to be kind and understanding. I worked on it when I could, and I was determined not to miss my second deadline. It’s all about staying disciplined and remembering that progress, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction.

Just Keep Going!

I’ve hit another roadblock (obstacle). Remember in my last blog when I shared about setting up my Linktree with links to my Facebook and Instagram? Well, here’s the scoop: my Facebook link isn’t cooperating. As I’m writing this, I’m scratching my head, wondering, “What’s going on?”

I’ve done some Google deep-diving and found some great instructions, but alas, no success. The culprit? Figuring out the correct URL. I’ve got a personal Facebook page and a business page, and it seems my link is veering towards the personal side. But fear not, this setback won’t get the best of me. I’m determined to crack the code and get it sorted. Stay tuned!

I have worked on the FB link for what seemed to be forever, UGH. I decided to step away and hope the lightbulb would light and I would say “Oh yes, this is what I was doing wrong”. But NO that has not happened yet. I will need to reach out for help on this. And until I can correct this I will move forward, I will Just Keep Going. I will keep you updated on how I corrected this in a future post.

Just Keep Going!

After hitting that little hiccup, I decided to shift gears and dive into week 9 of the Q&A session in the Beginners Advantage in Affiliate System. And let me tell you, it was a game-changer! The wealth of knowledge shared by my fellow affiliates was incredible.

One standout discovery: Canva is an absolute powerhouse! The possibilities it opens up are mind-blowing. Plus, we delved into the world of video and uncovered some golden tips for creating impactful content that could really boost my business with a bunch of views. I’ve got so much to share on these topics that they might just deserve their own dedicated blog posts. Stay tuned for the scoop!


Life has a way of throwing curveballs and presenting obstacles, but the key is to remember: Just Keep Going! Keep pushing forward with your business. Even if it’s a small step, any movement is better than standing still.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss, but I 100% agree that spending time with your mum is paramount. I hope you’re all ok, my thoughts are with you all at this sad time.
    Well done for not missing another personal deadline, it takes an incredibly strong mindset to keep the disciple through something like that. Well done.
    The Q&A sections are incredible aren’t they?
    I’m looking forward to your next post about canva. I have an account and use it but I’m not overly knowledgeable on it all.
    Look after yourself

    1. Sarah,
      Thank you for you comment and your condolences. This community is awesome as I feel the compassion and genuine care from all. I do have to remember to use the Q&A sessions and not try to figure out things on my own. I will keep you updated on my Canva adventure.

  2. Yes, those that fail are those that quit…. you just have to power on through the tough times, The thing to remember is that as long as you are making good use of your time, reaching out for help when required, and constantly putting out good content you will eventually see success

    1. Tony,
      Thank you for your comment and thank you for that reminder. Yes, making good use of my time and remembering to reach out for help are imperative.

  3. Did you get your Facebook link sorted? I hope you did. I understand how frustrating tech roadblocks can be sometimes you need to step away for a moment. Thankfully, you can always send in your question for the Q&A Monday, and let Glen and Sophie help you! I am always reaching out to customer service or submitting my questions, I feel like time is so precious and having a resource like we do is invaluable.

    1. Alison,
      I have not gotten my FB link sorted out yet. I did submit a question in the Q&A so I will be playing the recording as soon as I can to learn of a possible solution. We do have great resources for help and I need to remember to reach out more.

  4. Yes always ask for help. That’s my strategy, especially when we have so many willing to help! Sometimes advice given isn’t always accurate, so there’s always that. And watch out for overthinking. Keep it simple is my guideline for this business.

    My condolences for your loss.

    1. Kate,
      Thank you for the comment and your sympathy. I agree that asking for help is imperative for success if we do not know or understand something. I need to learn to do that more. Thanks for the reminder.

  5. Sherri, ohhhhhh, I feel your pain. But, it is making us better at every hurdle. Don’t look back now cause we are on our way up to success. I so relate to you. This has been a massive learning cure for me.
    Thanks for sharing your experiences.
    Success is yours!

    1. John,
      I agree with your statement that every hurdle we experience will lead us to success. I am not looking back. Thank you for that reminder. Here is to our success.

  6. I do indeed know about having setbacks. My dad passed away in February and it has been very stressful trying to figure out all the little details about what goes into planning a funeral all while trying to come to grips of losing a loved one. Now that it’s done, I can finally grieve my loss. I wish I could say I have been staying on the path the last few weeks, but now I have re-dedicated my time and effort to go full steam ahead. I’m so sorry for your loss and know that I understand that sometimes these obstacles create lessons in life and figuring out how to rise above and move forward is vital.

    1. Vanessa,
      I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I felt it took me a few weeks to be able to get back on track so I understand getting off the path for a while. Good for you for re-dedicating your time and effort to go full-steam again. I know you will be successful with that attitude.

  7. Hi, Sherri! Yes, obstacles are always going to appear, but I suppose they build our calf muscles faster as we learn to step over them! Lol!
    I’m learning these obstacles are just ways to reach our audiences. They give us source material. After all, we’re not the only ones who will face them, and we can help each other along the way.
    I haven’t set up my Facebook Linktree yet. If I encounter the same problem and figure it out, I will let you know. It is one of my goals for this week.

    1. Nakina,
      Thank you for the comment. I am sure building some calf muscles over here. LOL! Yes you are correct this is something that maybe someone else is experiencing and I hope my post has helped in some way. Please let me know how your Facebook Link in Linktree goes and I am still struggling with it. UGH. I am determined to figure this one out.

  8. Hi Sherri,
    We all have moments where something will get in the way of us moving forward, but there’s not much we can do about it. We’re only human. All you can do is try your best to get through it, so you can continue to move forward. The good thing is that you kept a positive attitude through it all, and still tried your best to get things done. It may not have been as much as you would have liked it to be, but you still got things done and moved forward. That says a lot about you. Excellent job, and I’m so sorry to hear about your mom’s sister. Hang in there and it will get better soon.

  9. So true Sherri;
    A few weeks ago, the same happened to me. A very good friend – my age – passed away from cancer. My wife was telling me that maybe I should step away from it all and take a few weeks off.
    I thought about that and I figured that – for me – the past thing to do was…like you said: keep going. I think my friend would have laughed about that!
    We all need to take our time; success isn’t a race, it’s a nice marathon that – if we’re lucky enough to do so – we can go at it at our own pace.
    My thoughts go out to you and a big Canadian hug is being sent to your mother and your family.
    Stay strong!

    1. Marc,
      Thank you for the big Canadian Hug. It is much needed. Sorry to hear of your loss but you are probably right, your friend would have wanted you to keep going, just as I know my aunt would have wanted that also. Thanks for the reminder that success in not a race, it is a nice marathon.

  10. Sherri, sorry to hear about the passing of your aunty. I hope you and the family are well. You’re absolutely right things in life happen like family issues, work, issues, health issues, just how busy we get with work and children etc. We get diverted easily throughout the day. But your attitude is correct. You just get on with it and there might be a slight delay but so what it doesn’t matter. The whole point is you carry on keep going keep going keep going. And remember you’re not in competition with anyone, you just building your business and as long as you keep going and adding value value and doing the right things it will happen in its own time. All the best, thanks, Atif

    1. Atif,
      Thank you for your sympathy. I really feel that this community cares for each other and I am grateful for that. I will continue to work on building my business one step at a time. I will keep going keep going keep going. I love that!!

  11. Sherri,
    First of all, condolences for your loss. I agree that we must Just Keep Going, no matter what life throws at us. as you said, we may need to go at a slower pace, but as long as we are going, that’s what is important! I love your attitude. Good luck moving forward!

  12. I must admit, I’m very bad using Facebook, I got both a personal page and a business page and I still struggle to know exactly how those two differentiate from each others. Also nothing is user friendly there, there are left side menus, top menus, right menus, with all their submenus. Information seems everywhere and overwhelming for me. Sorry if I sound frustrated but I’m just struggling since months trying to get things evolve with Facebook and my only one follower and nothing seems to start. Since we must go forward I let Facebook on the side for a while, time to learn other more friendly avenues .

    1. Martin,
      Oh I can relate to your frustration with Facebook. I am still working on my problem. I have decided for the time being to focus on Instagram and TikTok.

  13. Nice honest commentary. Also nice to read info from a real person. Somethings impede our journey others don’t, but we must continue to pursue our dreams.

  14. Ahh Sherri

    Life is amazing, isn’t it? Sometimes you think you’re on your own and then you read something and then realize, I am not on my own!

    That is so empowering so I want to thank you for sharing your journey with us.

    I have found the comments to my blog and other people’s posts help me to keep going and this post has done just that.

    So I’m grateful for this community as am not sure I would be able to keep going without it as we do not know what the future holds and as you say sometimes ‘Life Happens’

    I am available if you need help with any roadblocks you may encounter tech-wise. I am nowhere near an expert but I do know that two heads are better than one. (smile) and the roadblock you’re facing with FB feels manageable as (i have completed the Linktree.

    When something like this happens to me I also take a break from it and come back and when that does not work I will be asking for help.

    Yes, Canva has so much to offer and the most I’ve done is create images but there is so much more to it.

    Am glad that along with that you are enjoying ‘the world of video’ and that has given you many ideas for future posts.

    Look forward to learning and sharing your journey with you as we Just Keep Going!

    1. Eleanor,
      Thank you for the comment and thank you for the offer of help as I am still at a lost with my Linktree and FB link UGH. I am diving into Canva so I am excited to learn all I can about that. Yes sometimes a little break is what we need to compose our thoughts and then get back to work.

  15. I, too, have recently experienced a family situation that caused a “pause” in everything I was doing. I learned we can either let life get in the way or roll with life. I am glad you are back on track and able to move forward. Please take care of yourself and those you love and let your community and mentor support you in business as needed. Now off to go check out Canva. Thanks for the tip.

  16. Hi Sherri, so sorry to hear about your aunt. I do hope your mum is OK. Yes, life can be very tough at times but we must carry on. My thoughts are with you.

  17. Don’t listen to the inner judge that just wants to tear you down for not meeting a deadline, or whatever perceived “failure”. Getting mad at ourselves is never going to help us succeed in a meaningful way.
