List-building is nothing to shake your maracas at

Cinco De Mayo was the other day and I happened to be celebrating a good friends birthday–

–so I had no intentions of slamming margaritas (or the like) that evening.


one thing led to another…

and we end up on the town surrounded by Dos Equis and maracas.

The next morning comes around and I find a sombrero on my night stand.

How does this random story about May 5 and me finding Mexican-headwear relate to building your online business?

Well, I can think of a few ways:


In order to have fun you have to do ‘fun’ things.

With being successful in business it’s no different.

You have to put yourself in a position to win by showing up daily and building routines around money-making tasks.

Being successful in biz means doing ‘biz thangs’.


You should – in the same breath – expect to win everything and expect to win nothing at all.

Too many people are dependent on the idea that their business will be successful quickly,

and for most,

(like 90%)

that just won’t be the case.

So you have to remove the outcome and focus on the hard work instead.


You might end up with a straw hat in your bedroom.

Here’s what I mean:

You just never know what will happen.

But by putting yourself in a position to win, you’ll have more opportunities to get different results.

At the end of the day, you can’t win if you don’t play.

So keep doing the right things,

lose the dependance on the outcome,

and make sure you aren’t playing from the sidelines.

There’s a healthy dose of the “winning mindset” inside my premier online list-building and monetization program called “Email Elite”.

Shake your maracas on over and join the mariachis here:
