Working too hard to make any real money

Distraction and overwhelm are two of the biggest enemies of your success.

There are too many options for generating traffic…from social media to paid advertising.

What about monetizing your website? You can promote affiliate programs, offer consulting, create courses, set-up an ecommerce store, or sell advertising to your audience.

Set-up your business in the wrong way and you create another job for yourself. It’s not uncommon to find people earning less than minimum wage from all their work online.

You can quickly find yourself running on a treadmill with no real progress.

Overwhelm even afflicts those of us who have earned millions online.

There are multiple times where I’ve taken on too many projects at once.

Too often I’ve said YES when I should have said NO.

It was the Fear of Missing Out.

I’d look at others in the industry and see everything they were doing…and then beat myself up for not doing more.

Speak at another conference. Do another interview. Seek out more JV partners. Promote a bigger launch.

I’m thankful I broke free from the majority of this more than a decade ago.

I stopped speaking at conferences, because I didn’t like the travel.

I quit seeking big launches or a bunch of joint venture partners.

Because none of that is necessary.

If you try to do it all, it soon feels like everything grinds to a halt.

The more you commit to, the longer it takes to get anything done.

You might even find yourself in burnout. I’ve known what that feels like several times also.

Instead of trying to do everything, ask yourself…

What is essential?

You need a way to generate a buying audience.

You need a way to consistently communicate with your audience.

You need offers to monetize your business.

Of course, you can add multiples of any of the above, but all of us are limited in the time we have to invest in growing our business. You can put systems and a team in place to leverage and get more done in less time, but those take time to put in place as well.

Whether you’re a beginner just starting out or you have decades of experience, you still can’t do everything.

And beating yourself up over what you’re not doing is wasted energy.

You’re going to say NO to a whole lot more opportunities than you have bandwidth to say YES to.

One of the essentials to my online business…and for the majority of my clients…is email marketing.

It’s how we consistently communicate with our audience. It’s also one of our primary sources of income.

Autoresponder Alchemy gives you the step-by-step system I’ve refined over 25 years now.

The Internet has changed dramatically in that time, but email is still the #1 income generator for me and my clients.

Get access to my step-by-step system for earning more from every email you send.

When you do it right, it becomes the catalyst for so many other areas of your business.
