How to Turn 1 Niche Into 4 Money Making Business Models – Part 2

Hi everyone! I’m back with the second post in my series on how to turn 1 niche into 4 money making business models. We’re starting here:

Business Model #1 – Info Product Development

Info product development is so intimidating to some. They view it as a formal publishing expedition, but that’s not really what it is. There’s no agent to convince to represent you, no publishing house to approach – it’s just you, creating a solution for one of the problems your readers have. Continue reading

How to Turn 1 Niche Into 4 Money Making Business Models – Part 1

Hi everyone! I’m starting a series here that I was going to compile into one report, which I may still – but I wanted it on here for everyone to enjoy when they arrive.

Online marketers have a career that’s both a wonderful opportunity to embrace and huge burden to bear. Not everyone will thrive in this career because the sheer noise of options drowns out what little enthusiasm and courage they came to the table with.

Everyone always wants a plan.

“Just tell me what to do, and I’ll do it,” they beg. Continue reading

When Too Many Things Vie for Your Attention

Hi everyone! I got a GREAT question from a reader that I wanted to address here today. This person said:

I want to do soooo many things and they all vie for my attention, so of course, not one of them gets my focus. How do you decide when you have 10,12, 20 ideas that may or may not be viable, but each one only holds your attention for long enough to do a small bit of it?

I love this because we all experience this to some degree. Even within one project, you can have tasks vying for attention, too. It happens to all of us. Sometimes it’s self doubt. Sometimes you initially feel like something is a good idea, but later it wanes (your interest).  Continue reading

Teach Me How to Make an Online Business Checklist

Hi everyone! When it comes to us managing our online businesses, it’s overwhelming sometimes to figure out what all needs to be done, and then what has to be maintained on a regular basis.

What makes it worse is, there’s no “one size fits all” for business management. Even two people in the same niche can do things differently. So it’s no wonder this request came in on my “Teach Me How to” survey…

Need a checklist for sales funnel, email-list building, and daily action taking in social media marketing.. Tall order!

The truth is, you’ll need two checklists – one for set-up and one for on-going business management.

Teach Me How to Focus

Focus. Such a simple sounding word, and yet it evades me almost as much as the Loch Ness monster, Big Foot, or Ted Cruz (okay so that last one is because I’m a super fan who didn’t get to meet him yet, but still!)…

I get a lot done, on most days. It’s how I earn six figures. Without productivity, you can’t make money. So somehow, some way, I do focus enough to get me to that level.

I’ll share what I know, but in no way do I consider myself some sort of focus expert.

Focus strategies are flexible.

I can’t use the same focus strategy over and over again. Because what worked one day, might not work the next. Hell, it might not even work an hour from now. What I have to do is kind of flip through my mental focus rolodex and find something that fits right here…right now. Continue reading
