When people talk about online business, a lot of the focus is on what it’s worth to your wallet. But that conversation is only surface-level―an online business is worth so much more to your family.
Many people start an online business because they’ve heard the success stories, and are excited about the financial opportunity.
But people are also excited about the opportunity to be their own boss!
That means working when you want, wherever you want (for better
or and worse).
On a hot weekend in June, I met up with two entrepreneurs from my mastermind group to collaborate an on online course called Project LAUNCH. The challenge was… we only had 48 hours.
At 10 AM on Friday June 3rd, 2016 the countdown began.
Craig Jarrow, Wes Wages, and I had committed to a very public challenge to create and launch an online course in just 48 hours.
That weekend was full of nothing but hustle, and there were moments we all doubted our ability to finish in time.
But we did it―we successfully created and launched an online course in exactly 48 hours!
If you’ve even thought about creating a website before, you’ve probably heard the name “WordPress” mentioned. But what is it? And why should you care?
When I first started blogging back in 2013, I created my website on Google’s Blogger service.
It was simple to set up, and seemed like the right choice at the time…
But I quickly discovered Blogger’s limitations, and started exploring other options.
I love running an online business, with all the opportunity and freedom it brings. I would like to see more bloggers follow that path, but the same few mistakes keep holding them back.
If you’re like most bloggers I know, you would love to make a living by creating genuinely helpful content on your blog.
You know it’s possible (you’ve read the success stories), but you’re not really sure how to connect the dots from here to there.
On a daily basis, your thought process might go something like this:
Should I create a new logo? Most full-time bloggers have those. Then again, maybe I need to focus on social media promotion, because I really need more traffic on my site. I know, I’ll update my Twitter bio! But wait… I should finish that half-written ebook so I have something to sell on my blog.
In last week’s post, we talked about the value of an email list―and I introduced my list-building mentor, Bryan Harris. This week we’re going to dive deeper into that topic.
Bryan has been doing an incredible job teaching people how to create successful online businesses by focusing on one thing first:
⇒ Building an email list ⇐
At this point, you know you need to build an email list. You may even know how to get started.
But what does it take to get 10,000 email subscribers?
