It’s not JUST about email lists & mula

This entrepreneur lifestyle can be lonely.

We (mostly) start off at a jay-oh-bee of sorts.

Then the questioning begins if “I’m doing the right thing?”

You find a book like “The 4-Hour Workweek” or “Crush It!”

and realize we can make a living on your own doing something that you love…

Fast-forward a year or two and you’re working from home

or maybe even from a remote location as you travel the world…

Then you loop back to some form of “Am I doing the right thing right now?”

As I’m plowing through “On The Shortness of Life”,

I stumbled across this gem that every online entrepreneur should embody:

Do this first – then ditch the guru

Just sat down at the coffee shop in Phoenix.

I’m a little tired after hitting the town last night but all is well.

For some reason last night I was reminded of a few years back when I was trying to build a blog and a podcast with a close friend.

We wound up dating but fell apart after a series of events I take full ownership for.

But you know what,

When your product falls right on it’s a-$-$

When you’re selling products and coaching services online it seems like there are one of two results…

The first is that people rush to buy your product,

and second is that it falls on it’s a$$.

A few months back I was walking around a rainy San Francisco and I heard this:

“Umbrellas – 7 dollars.”

At the time, everyone around me was soaking wet and it was starting to rain harder.

Which got me thinking…

On it’s way out: Email Elite August Exclusive Training

After a few recent inquiries I figure an update would be good…

Question #1: What is Email Elite?

Email Elite combines personal help with self-help to guide you in starting, growing, or expanding your business online.

The program was built to help you build an email list and monetize it in as little as 14 days.

Question #2 : Who is Email Elite for?

Email Elite is THE program for online entrepreneurs who’ve realized their email list is their most important asset – but have delayed focusing on it.

Maybe you were making too much content,

maybe you know what to do but aren’t doing it,

or you’re new to world of creating an online business.

If you’ve been trying and trying and nothing seems to “stick” with building your email list and business online and are ready for a necessary change –

Email Elite is for you.

You’ll get access to me and my experience from serving, working besides, and getting mentored by some of the top names online.

Question #3: How does Email Elite work?

Email Elite will walk you through the process of creating and leveraging an email list step-by-step through a combo of one-on-one coaching calls and an “Exclusive Training” sent to your inbox the first part of each month.

These Exclusive Trainings are created around a topic designed to transform your business and life and “go deep” on ideas like storytelling, practical list-building strategies, target marketing, monezation, and how to optimize your life as an Entrepreneur to basically guarantee your success.

Each Member currently gets three coaching sessions as a part of their subscription along with weekly accountability and email access to me.

(this will change in the near future and will include less one-on-one time – making it a great reason to join now.)

Question #3: How much does Email Elite cost?

An Email Elite Membership – which includes 3 one-on-one coaching calls, a new Exclusive Training each month, Q&A “Jam Sessions”, and email access to me – costs less per-day than the smoothie you enjoyed this morning at just $69 per month.

The investment will soon increase so if you’re on the fence about joining the program now’s the time to action.

  • A highly underrated way to welcome new subscribers to your business and offerings (I’m experimenting now across all of my businesses)

A video walkthrough of my system for spending less than 30 minutes per day easily publishing content online that generates traffic and attracts ideal subscribers day in and out.

How to “pistachio” your business

While on an Email Elite Coaching Session with Member Julie earlier today:

At the beginning of each session we go over the number one goal of the call.

She proclaims:

“How do I pistachio my business?”

Great question.

If you’re new around here,

she’s referring to advice I reference from time to time from Sally Hogshead.

You see…

Making money online isn’t all dark chocolate and danishes

I must of caught something in the last 24 hours because today’s been hell.

Stuffy nose.

Itchy throat.

Didn’t leave the bed till 3 PM.

But so it goes – sometimes you have to push through.

(plus I’m stubborn so I don’t take traditional meds)

It doesn’t matter who you look up to or who your are,

everyone has their “off” days.

Sometimes you wake up and things are funky.

Maybe you’re in a kerfuffle with someone you love.

(^^that’s a word)

Or your health takes a break.

I had a vision at one point that having a successful online business and working from home was all dark chocolate and danishes.

The reality is that it’s not.

You’ll still have funky days.

People won’t always be happy with you.

(when you put yourself ‘out there’ online the floodgates tend to open)

And sometimes you’re busier than those who work two jobs.

(and you may make less than them at times)

But at the end of the day,

it sometimes just doesn’t matter when you’re doing what you love or you’re on your way to it.

But, just like my cold or a funky day, time cures all.

As you get deeper into your business, however, time becomes scares.

That’s where action and sales come in.

For instance:

One of the biggest concerns people come to me with is that they want to leave their job (or already have) but they don’t have any (or enough) customers or clients.

Big problemo.

I could say “wait” (time cure) but that doesn’t feel right.

And so action becomes the name of the game to get to sales.

Same with your list.

If you aren’t making money yet (or know that you should be making more) then you have to take action.

It boils down to this:

Make more offers, sooner.

In fact, this month’s Email Elite Exclusive Training (which become a member by July 31st at Midnight PST to get) covers all bases for making more offers, sooner…

… and how to do it with out going crazy.

OK, getting kicked out of Starbucks now.

Go here to get this training before it’s gone:
