Hi Joel -
I understand completely. I felt the same way when I started. Heck, I still do on occasion!
If you haven't already done this, I'd recommend that you spend a few hours watching the entire Action Guide (videos) from beginning to end. Don't try to do
any of the steps, don't take notes, don't put any pressure on yourself to "get it" right away. Just relax and watch and get a sense of the overall picture. Once you know where you're going, it's easier to wrap your head around the individual steps for getting there. (At least it was for me!)
After you've watched the entire AG, go back to DAY 1 and start again. Take it slowly. Baby steps! When you get to something you don't understand or that doesn't make sense to you, don't be tempted to skip ahead. (Seemingly "little stuff" can mean a lot to your ultimate success.) Stop, and come to the forums with your questions. There are lots of friendly people here who'll do their best to help you.
And last but not least, don't put too much pressure on yourself. You'll "get" it. Really, you will. Remember: you're learning a whole new language and building a business from the ground up. It'll take time, but it's worth it in the end!
Looking forward to seeing you around the forums ...
