    Quick and easy money? Take some deep breaths...

    Quick and easy money? Take some deep breaths...

    It’s sad when I see people seeking quick and easy money.
    Often, they seek it because they are actually exhausted with work, and life. “If I could only solve this problem of money, then I can really have the freedom to live life on my terms.”
    That mindset provides little defense against unscrupulous people who are selling some system that will supposedly earn quick and easy money.

    How to be consistent with our good habits and disciplined with our schedule?

    How to be consistent with our good habits and disciplined with our schedule?

    1. Better design of our life/calendar structure... are we getting enough self-care, enough family time, enough admin time, enough time for the important things? Are we putting those activities at optimal times? This is an ongoing re-design issue as you learn more about your energy flow and your life's patterns.
    2. Your motivational methods in the moment... what works for you?

    Practice creating daily and publishing in obscurity :)

    Practice creating daily and publishing in obscurity :)

    Pick a platform (such as Twitter) where you barely get any engagement...
    Reframe that fact as an opportunity -- you are liberated to test your content in relative obscurity!
    By having a daily practice of creating and sharing ideas, even if it's as brief as a tweet, you'll reach a new level of optimism and confidence in your business.

    Rant -- f**king free webinars (dishonest) vs. honest info sessions

    Rant -- f**king free webinars (dishonest) vs. honest info sessions

    I start with a bit about Sales Funnels, but most of this episode focuses on the common (dishonest) strategy of "free" webinars that are actually bait-and-switch sales pitches that are carefully designed to move the unsuspecting participant through a series of emotions and understandings into the buying mode. 1/3rd build credibility with rags-to-riches storytelling and testimonials, 1/3rd myth busting to create "aha!" moments that sets up for the final third: the pressurized sale.
    Yes, a bit of cussing is involved. I'm passionate about this stuff ;-)

    Market research leads you to create Offers, which eventually helps clarify your Niche...

    Market research leads you to create Offers, which eventually helps clarify your Niche...

    A few notes from the Live Chat:
    From Mira Rao:
    They are also paying you attention in the beginning before they pay you money
    From Jason Schneider
    Read an interesting article on ‘the attention economy'
    So you have your market = has paid you… next ring is your potential market = they follow you… and then a wider potential market = people who could be in your audience with similar interests?
    I don’t have the actual article but its an entire field with books etc.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attention_economy#:~:text=Attention%20economics%20is%20an%20approach,only%20so%20much%20of%20it.%22 (Here's the wikipedia).
