In this issue:
- More overwhelm anyone? Solution for creatives!
- The Money Gym, give your financial life a workout! Free book all about Financial Intelligence
- Signups! Woohoo!
Well, that’s enough to be getting on with I guess, in our seemingly endless quest to make money online!
Too much to do?
Nah, all in a days work, do the normal everyday things in life, then update my social networks, make a top business decision, update more social networks, learn new skills… and have a life. Sure, I have all the time in the world! And monkeys might fly.
For me, being into personal development, law of attraction, internet marketing, NLP and DJ’ing, I am sure you can see my dilemma. And I guess I am not the only one.
OK identified problem, now solutions….
- One thing at a time. Multi tasking just scatters your attention and energy. I remember when I was 16 in one of my very first jobs, it was in the day when high street stores were busy on a Saturday. Fancy that! Before the days of huge stores on unattractive A Roads on the outskirts of town! I said to my manager who was not that impressed with my cashier skills “but it’s so BUSY”. He said “No matter how busy it gets, you can only serve one customer at a time” . And he was right (begrudgingly). Same here, I can only do one task at a time, so I may as well give it all I have got, in fact, pretend it is the ONLY thing I have to do today, so do it with care and attention, then move onto the next “ONLY” thing I have to do today…. etc
Or you could outsource. Some people equate outsourcing with sweat shops, and paying people in foreign countries a pittance, but I recently had this myth dispelled, certainly in the case of internet marketing. I read it in Mark Anastasis book “The Laptop Millionaire”, brilliant, by the way, on wages in the Phillipines.
Hotel and restaurants $133 a month
Construction work $147
Real Estate $189
So, relative to the cost of living there, an average wage of $20o a month is more than the average pay!
So that cannot be exploitative.
The Money Gym
Speaking of money, I want to mention my mentor, Nicola Cairncross, she rocks! She has mentored me online- and she has years of experience.
She is always in the process of learning, (a sign of a good mentor I think), has a wonderful down to earthness and honesty, and a wonderful business knowledge. She herself was mentored by Gill Fielding, who was featured in the TV show “Secret Millionaire”, so that is the benchmark of quality here.
Would you like a FREE copy of her book “The Money Gym”? It is FREE here. And if you need a mentor on or offline, I would snap her up, IF you can get her!
It is said that without a mentor, all you have is your best thinking so far on a subject, and that is not always optimal- no offence!

Speaking of Optimal Thinking….
Have you ever noticed that you get your best ideas, and have the best experiences in a RELAXED state of mind, not a frazzled one?
Would that not be a case for calm? Keep calm and carry on and all that.
NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming is the study of the mind and how it works. Loosely. It does not try to fix what is wrong, but notices what works, and seeks to teach that to people. It is a psychotechnology if I may. Basically, EVERY behaviour has a “structure” we DO it somehow. Whether it works or not (or gets the intended result), we do it anyway.
Which brings us to an interesting corollary- “There is NO failure, only FEEDBACK”. Therefore you can never fail at anything, all it means is given your outcome you wanted, you either achieved it or not. If you did, great, if not, well you got feedback on how to do it more effectively next time.
Perhaps new skills are needed. Which leads me to:
The 4 stages of learning ANYTHING:
- Unconscious incompetence- You don’t know what you don’t know. And you don’t know that you don’t know!
-Conscious Incompetence- You recognise that you are on the path to learning, but realize that you still have a lot to learn
-Conscious Competence- You are getting better, but still really have to concentrate
- Unconscious Competence- You do it without thinking, mastered it.
These are the 4 stages, and no one can buck them, so do not beat up on yourself, there IS no failure, only feedback.
Would you believe that there are strategies devised for accelerated learning, and making smarter decisions, and believe it or not the strately that Walt Disney used to come up with his brilliant ideas!

I guess we have all heard that the money is in the list. Or in the relationship you have with that list. But how to get a list in the first place. That’s the bit they leave out! I recently discovered a great resource called Safe-Swaps. Basically, you can buy very cheap clicks. There is a one off small joining fee. The you select someone you want to work with , and ask them to send a mininum of 100 clicks to your opt in page. It was really exciting for me- I noticed every few minutes a new subscriber was signing up! It is good to do a bit of research on what their list is interested in of course, and if it is a match, then go for it.
Once you have 1000 or so on the list, you can get even more leverage, as you can trade messages with them; mail to your mutual lists.
Well worth it in my experience, and if you want to give it a go, you can check it out here:
If you need any help by the way, drop me a mail at email@example.com, I had some good training from my mentor on this. Happy to give you a heads up.
