GM-11 Just Say No to Facebook Ads

February 28, 2019

IMHO Facebook ads are a black hole you an I may never recover from. 

Too Dramatic?

I am not saying Facebook Ads have no value, they do! It is just that they have become a massively sophisticated platform that we simply do not have the skill set to effectively manage. 

That is you and I, the average content creator. 

Too many of my online colleagues will encourage you to take a course to unlock the power of Facebook ads and manage your campaigns yourself. 

More of my humble opinion........BAD IDEA! Listen to learn why!

GM-10 No Passion, No Path

February 21, 2019

This week's podcast was inspired by a coaching webinar I held last week. It was called "Discover Online Business" and it was focused on those just starting out in online business, reinventing themselves or looking to grow their online business.

The questions I was asked spoke to some universal challenges I believe we all face when we contemplate online entrepreneurship.  

 Who is my ICA (Idea Customer Avitar)? The person I am trying to attract, to serve.

What is my focus? What product will I ultimately sell and how do I determine exactly what it is?

So many of us look at the opportunities online, know we want to be there, but where to start? What to do?

Your Passion is a great place to start.

This week I share with you some of the key milestones I passed as I built my Online Business.

I hope to offer some context, how long it takes, and where breakthroughs come from.

Darn tootin!

I have only one thing to say: if you build a good solid email list, you will have a good solid online business.

If you build a freaking awesome mail list, you will have have a freaking awesome online business.

If you don't build an email list, no guarantees....you are on your own.
