Why FOMO is Deadly to Online Marketers

FOMO stands for Fear of Missing Out.

It’s one of the biggest issues we face today.

Imagine a family sitting together at the dinner table.

Are they chatting about the day?

No.

Each of them appear to have a permanent crick in their neck as they gaze down at their phones.

How many likes did they get on their Instagram post?

Which of their friends just purchased a new car?

What did that politician they hate say this time?

It’s an addiction. The constant input sets off pleasure centers in the brain.

It can destroy relationships.

And it can keep you from enjoying a blessed moment that may never come again.

FOMO can devastate your online business.

You can’t go all in on your Youtube channel because you’re worried you’re missing out on the Facebook advertising gold rush.

But you can’t invest the time in Facebook ads because you’re too busy thinking about how you should be starting up an affiliate program instead.

Oh…and super-guru is having a limited time launch about how to attract new customers from Facebook groups.

You buy it, because you don’t want to miss out, but you never have time to implement it.

You don’t even have time to watch it!

You end up feeling guilty about everything you’re not doing.

You bounce here and there…everywhere.

You beat yourself up and ask, “Why doesn’t anything ever work for me?”

It doesn’t work because you’re not focused on the essentials you need to succeed.

It’s tough today. There’s no question about it.

There are BSO’s (Bright Shiny Objects) surrounding you no matter where you look.

Focus is a requirement for success.

Every time you say YES to something, it’s an automatic NO to at least a dozen other things.

You can’t be wishy-washy.

I like this saying…

“You can have anything you want in life, but you can’t have everything.”

Achieving a goal means rejecting whatever hinders you from reaching that goal.

We live in a world of overwhelming abundance, but you have limited time here.

How you invest your time determines the future you’ll experience.

Yes, time is an investment. Invest your time wisely in systems that will create a better future for you and those you can impact with your message.

And here’s the good news.

You don’t have to be overwhelmed and anxious about all the options.

Freedom businesses can be simple.

Gurus might show flowcharts with 100+ steps, but you can break down the foundation…the essentials you need to focus on to just 4 simple steps.

And that’s what I’ll be sharing in the September issue of the Monthly Mentor Club.

It’s called, “4 Simple Steps to a Freedom Business.”

It’s going to print & mail on September 1st.

It breaks the myth that you have to constantly hustle in an online business.

You’ll have to put in the energy to get things moving.

But follow these methods and you too can put systems in place for each of these 4 areas.

And when you do, you can reap a harvest of freedom, fun, and financial rewards both now and years (even decades) into the future.

Join the Monthly Mentor Club today and get access to dozens of my special reports and videos.

And get the “4 Simple Steps to a Freedom Business” mailed out to you the first of September.
