Hey, everyone!!

Oh goodness...I saw this and did not know if I should laugh or cry - funny as hell and waaaay too true!! But funny nonetheless....

But the truth is that we often use so-called distractions to avoid doing the stuff we know we need to do...

Are you really addicted to social media - or are you avoiding creating that landing page because you struggle with it?

Do you honestly go down that rabbit hole of YouTube because you find those cat videos that funny - or is it because deep down you really don't want to do your newsletter?

The point is that it isn't always social media or some other third-party distraction or ADHD that derails us - sometimes it's just our subconscious helping us avoid the difficult tasks that we really don't WANT to do because they're tough, confusing or sometimes, just simply annoying.

And so by the end of the day, we are scrambling to get the bare minimum necessary things done to keep afloat.

But the bare minimum will never get us the success that we want.

This week I was doing some work in my aMember, and as I added a new product, I looked at the number - in about 27 months, I have created 302 products, and issued 385 coupon codes. Done by me. Not outsourced, all original content. Seriously! No wonder I was feeling a bit tired.

A spring chicken I ain't.

But you want to know the TWO magic secrets to creating all of those products?

Secret #1: I took ACTION.

Scared, overwhelmed, floundering for direction, and in the beginning, trying to find a few minutes here and there as I tried to transition from an extremely demanding career to a totally new one. Going from 30 years experience and reputation in 0 experience and no rep in the other.

LOL. Yep. Crazy.

Secret #2: I get the stuff done that I don't want to do first thing in the morning.

I don't do anything else until it's done. I don't give myself the opportunity to get distracted or make excuses. I roll out of bed, grab the coffee (nothing is possible without coffee, sorry) and hit my to-do list. The tasks that are the first to be done are starred and those are the ones I do. The landing pages. The sales pages. All of the stuff that is 'grunt work' I get done first, because well, I AM the Chief Grunt.

If you find that you are not getting the things that matter completed because you keep getting distracted - dig down and find out why you are getting distracted!! Is it really outside things that are pulling you in - or are you practicing avoidance tactics without admitting it to yourself??

LOL I was TOTALLY guilty of this at one point in my life - it was amazing how I could work so darned hard and not actually get anything done - until I sat down and really analyzed what I was doing, and became conscious of the 'self-sabotage'.

Now if I could just get this productive with house-cleaning.....

And tomorrow - let's talk about the myth that freebie seekers are evil and out to steal you blind...

Michael Cheney's Secret Money System

Screen Shot 2022-01-19 at 2.42.45 PM
Confession: I use to avoid Michael Cheney like the plague. Thought his stuff was scammy, and pretty lumped him in with a bunch of others that put out crummy copy-cat stuff. Then I bought his last W+ launch, Fast Track to 1 Million, and realized what I had been missing. The man is brilliant, and I have become a huge fan. He knows what he is doing and his conversions are astounding - and he is on every leader board with a major prize. And no, I am not a millionaire yet but I am using a lot of things I learned in that one and they work ;-)

I just picked this one up today - $9.95 - and am looking forward to diving in as I have heard rave reviews from others.

Pinning Case Study - Make Video Pins That POP

Screen Shot 2022-01-18 at 4.06.14 PM
One of my fave Pinterest peeps just came out with a new course, and I jumped on this one because interestingly, my pageviews on my site have SKYROCKETED in the last 90 days. - like from 9k to over 26k per month. Digging in, I discovered that a MAJOR part of that increase came from ONE Pin that I did LAST Summer!!! So, yes, I have renewed interest in getting my pinning activities going again!

I purchased everything in BOTH of these except for the coaching but I have not gone through them yet - I just know that I learned a lot from their last training and this is all updated fro 2022

Check them out here:
