This Is Why You Are Leaving Most Of Your Profits On The Table. Forgetting Your Profits. This video is going to explain why you are leaving most of your profits on the table. Yes, I said it. You are probably working hard to get leads, clients and sales then dropping the ball. Most of your profits are left untouched. Watch this video to see what I’m talking about.
Tool Problems The secret to an online business is not what you have been told. Success doesn’t come from the tools; it comes from your mindset. But nobody wants to tell you that because it makes it harder to sell you their newest latest and greatest product. Now that you have solved your first problem let’s take a look at the 2nd problem. Stop thinking like a marketer and start thinking like an entrepreneur. Watch this video to see exactly what I’m talking about.
I don’t know about you, but when I got started in business I suffered from the WCS (“Woulda Coulda Shoulda”) syndrome. No matter what I tried to do, I would second guess myself. Have you ever had that happen to you? It was insane. I felt like a starving hamster stuck in a ball chasing the last piece of cheese in the world. It didn’t make a difference what I tried, I was stuck. I think a Magic 8 Ball could have made better decisions than me. It was so bad I would spend days planning to do something only […]
It’s natural, and it happens to everybody. But it’s how you handle that feeling that makes all the difference in the world. In the past I would try to cope with stress and overwhelm by consuming Red Bulls and junk food. Needless to say, that didn’t solve anything. Most people get overwhelmed and instead of looking at the real problem they just try to power through it like I did. You are stressed and overwhelmed because you are thinking about or trying to do too much. Step back and prioritize everything. Look at what can only be done by you vs. […]
Few people will ever admit this, but goals are the most dangerous things for you to have. I’m sure you’re thinking that I’ve lost my marbles. How can goals be dangerous? Goals will drive you to accomplish more than you could imagine, but here is the elephant in the room. The wrong goals will sabotage your success because they don’t push you out of your comfort zone. People are afraid to fail so they end up making goals they know they could accomplish. This keeps you from pushing yourself to become more. It’s kind of like failing the 1st grade […]
I’m still blessed to have my father with me. He turned 79 this year, and he inspires me with how he lives his life. While most people want to slow down and rest, my dad still works part time and is always looking to learn new things. When he was 72 he bought his first computer and now he spends a lot of his time watching videos on his iPad. I grew up with my dad always learning to do new things. Just like my dad you need to look at how to maximize your time and productivity as an online marketing business owner. […]
Not enough market research As entrepreneurs it’s easy to fall in love with an idea about how well your products are going to sell. Just build a better mousetrap and they will come. Well, in the online world that’s like waiting up all night to catch the tooth fairy. It’s just not going to happen. Most entrepreneurs start an online business with the belief that their idea is going to be worth millions right out of the gate. But if you do the market research and look at the facts, you might discover that your idea is not going to […]
