    EP44 - Kick-start you your email list growth into high gear

    Fast track to the resources here -> http://bosslifecafe.com/
    Do you want more clients? Then you need more leads WHICH MEANS 👉🏼 you’ve got to build your email subscribers tribe 📩 How?
    Here’s the question that’s on everyone’s mind when they start thinking about mailing lists:


    “Which service should I use?”🤦🏻‍♀️
    You’ve probably wondered yourself, and maybe even spent a few hours (or days, or weeks) researching your options. 😬

    🛑Stop!🛑
    .
    This is NOT the question you should be asking (yet). And it’s exactly why so many entrepreneurs get stuck in the planning stage of list building. 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
    Before you need to think about tools, you must ask yourself this:

    “How can I best serve my market?”

    Whether you’re coaching business owners, new moms, bloggers, or youth pastors, they have a need that only you can fulfill.
    And when you discover what that need is, you’ll have two valuable pieces of information:

    🌟What incentive will be a true no-brainer for your ideal client to opt-in to your list?

    🌟How can you use your mailing list to provide the best value for those who join your list?


    Don’t over-think these questions, though. Your opt-in incentive can be as simple as a resource guide or a short how-to video that answers a common question.
    And when it comes to providing value to your list members, keep TWO things in mind:
    1️⃣ THERE ARE PEOPLE ON THE OTHER SIDE 🥰
    2️⃣ Be consistent, they are counting on you as the thought leader in your market to distill and provide the information, tools, and products that they want and need.

    Are you ready to grow your email list and talk to people that are asking for your solutions??? I have a planner for you a 5-Part Planner with Worksheets: How to Add 100+ New Subscribers to Your List in 30 Days for beginners, download it here

    EP042 - Take a stand and raise your voice BLM

    EP042 - Take a stand and raise your voice BLM

    t's not easy to look the other way, silent, while this is happening in our backyard (still).
    These images and a tweet by author Ashlee Eiland (in show notes) last week moved me out of inaction. Sometimes it takes just one little push to shake us into taking a stand and for me, it was these.

    Here's is the thing, I'm worried, seriously worried, that this beautiful-magnificent Black Lives Matter movement is going to be washed away in a few news cycles.

    And I asked my self what can I do here, in my corner of the world to make a difference, to move the needle forward. So I shared in my email last week what we are doing here, and I also posted here in this group.

    This week I kept working on my promise and created a compilation of resources on my website hoping that it will motivate my audience to also take a stand & do something beyond sharing posts and rants in social media. (in the show notes)

    Also, this week's podcast is dedicated to this cause, because I have found that when we all do the little things that need to be done, the Big things finally become a reality. It's important to realize that we don't have to do heroics acts to be someone's hero. (Resources, books, movies, & important organizations in the show notes)

    So I challenge you today to find 1 to 3 things that you can start doing today to assure that the BLM movement lives up to its name.

    From my heart,
    Karem Mieses

    Even in economic downturns, businesses flourish but you have to assume 100% responsibility, make a choice and carry on with your plans. 

    Here's the thing, sometimes you just need to make a little extra cash. You’ve got extra bills to pay. Maybe a kid is going to college and you need tuition money. Maybe you are on furlough or lost a job due to COVID-19 and have to make up for it.

    The internet has fundamentally changed how we make money. There are dozens of ways to make extra cash through a variety of online techniques. We’re no longer forced to take traditional jobs in order to make money.

    In this episode, you’ll discover 11 effective ways to make money online. Some of these methods will be more lucrative than others. Some will require more work than others. Some of these money-making methods can even turn into full-time jobs.

    EP040 - 4-steps to Ditch all the overwhelm 

    EP040 - 4-steps to Ditch all the overwhelm 

    So much to do😱 so little time 😩 How to enjoy your nights & weekends without feeling behind 🤯
    (Fast track to all the free resources in our Bosslife Cafe -> https://bit.ly/productive-week-access)
    .
    Try this technique to empty your psychic ram (all those thoughts that don't let you think?!) so that you can enjoy life, no guilt, and boosted productivity for Monday!
    ++++
    Here's the thing overwhelm comes from:
    (1) Constantly multitasking - our brain does not take a break b/c it’s constantly trying to make a decision
    (2) Indecision - when you doubt yourself the brain enters into a loophole.
    Many times we are indecisive due to lack of direction ….
    .
    For today, I challenge you to stop-multitasking and overworking yourself..
    .
    B/c the reality is that unmanaged overwhelmed can lead to anxiety and that it's a problem... a box of Pandora that you don't want to open.
    Just google anxiety and health, and you'll start taking relaxing and having fun way more seriously 😉
    .
    For now, explore these
    1) Work in 90 min time block and take 15 min breaks
    2) Make a list of things pending, aka "the parking lot," every time you need to stop, it will help you resume way faster.
    3) At the end of the day, make a list of everything that you wanted to complete that day and circle the top 3.
    4) Start with the top 3 the next day.
    .
    People who are overwhelmed not only spread themselves too thin, but their energy gets diluted. Don't be afraid of disappointing others for saying "no," we get one life to live and they may be as scared when it's their turn ;-)
    .
