Confession. I don't do email. I just don't. I hate it. I hired somebody to start doing it for me in 2013. And I have not looked back since in fact, I don't even have email on my phone and. Yes, I have an email address, but it's fully managed by my customer service gal. And she is my favorite person in the entire world most days, because she can do everything I need in very little time and respond to stuff that needs responses from me by asking me a quick question, and then I'm not distracted by email all the time.
Now that being said, I do have one personal email address that I use for like my kids, teachers, and you know, all the things that require it, that aren't business-related that I have to deal with on my own. And somehow somewhere I ended up signing up for a newsletter with James clear. And I, I've gotta be honest.
I haven't read email newsletters in years because that's why I wanted somebody else to do my email because I will read them and I get sucked into them and I get pulled into all the hype and I need to focus. Like I don't need more stuff. I don't need more education. You probably don't either. I need focus.
I need to just do what I know I need to do and move forward. But I saw this newsletter come through from James and he's amazing, he wrote atomic habits. One of the most brilliant people. I follow a note. And when I do go into that inbox, which is like once a month or whatever, I never check it.
But when I have to, because I know there's something there from a teacher or something, and I see his stuff, I'll read it because. It's some of the best content in an email I've ever seen. And so today I want to share with you a nugget that I took from his email and talk a little bit about how that can help you grow in your business and help you identify what you should be focusing on right now. 📍
So here's a quote that hit me really hard that I wanted to share with you. Now, this is James clear. He said where to focus for the beginner execution for the intermediate strategy for the expert.
Can you guess what it is? That wasn't his quote. That's my little side it's mindset. Okay. That's James clear from his email newsletter. I just thought this was so brilliant because it makes so much sense to me when you're first starting out, you need to know like what the softwares are to use, what the tools are, how do you actually do the things and what does it look like and how do you get people onto an email list?
And what do you say. And the focus is all on getting it set up, it's figuring out what to do and how do you actually make that happen? And that's the bulk of your questions when you're just starting out. Then once you start to get some progress, you start to make some money. That's one strategy is so important.
That's when you get super intentional about your messaging, about your offer, about your conversion mechanism, about your traffic and about your nurture. When you get those things into place, then things can really start rocking. And rolling, this is where courses on marketing and sales and all of those things are super helpful and they can really start helping you to accelerate the results that you are getting in your business, which is fantastic.
However, and this is the biggest mistake I think I see that keeps people stuck in the messy middle is that we don't give our strategies enough time. We do this thing that I call FOMO marketing. We try a strategy and maybe it kind of works. Maybe it doesn't. And then we read all those email newsletters, which is such.
Oh, such a black hole and we get all hyped up and we're excited about so-and-so's new free challenge. And we get exc
