My Grandpa used to say “Bug Eyes, you learn something new everyday”.
Yeah, he really called me “Bug Eyes”…
Pretty sure it was because I had these blue eyes that were way too big for my face.
My daughter Emma got the same eyes and she just gets “Oh my gosh, your eyes are so pretty”.
And I got “Hey, Bug Eyes”.
I’m cool with it…no real scarring. Besides, funny nick names are like a badge of honor in our family.
But Grandpa Ed’s “you learn something new everyday” saying has really struck me this year.
My birthday is in January and I honestly feel like I am learning more right now (every day) than I have in any other time in my life.
The big lesson I want to pass on to you today is to be ready for change.
When I first came up with the idea, I thought it would be cool to be kind of “secret agent like” and I had fun with it, but at some point I came to the realization that I am not really a secret agent.
I know…hard to believe, eh?
After a while, I got bored with the shtick and I am pretty sure that my female readers never really related to it in the first place.
So it was time for a change.
But what was going to be my shtick this time?
After some serious thought, an idea began to form. This was about the same time that I ran across an email expert who I knew of before, but never really dug very deep into his stuff. Much more on the Secret Email Expert in the future.
Heh. There I go again with the whole secret agent stuff. = )
Well, after reading a bunch of his emails and thinking back to what I learned about email at a $10,000 mastermind weekend, I realized what I needed to do.
My emails didn’t need a shtick. They needed a real and authentic voice….the real me.
So from now on what you see is what you get. If I learned a lesson that related to marketing and making money online by taking my 11 year old son to a “birds and the bees” class…
…Be prepared to hear about it.
Hope you are cool with that, because I really doubt that you will get blog posts like this anywhere else (at least in our industry).
Now, since I took the time to explain all of that, I am going to save the Canned Ham winner until tomorrow.
But, the moment you have all been waiting for…
The number one way to make moolah on and off line is (drumroll): Make customers happy!
When you provide a product or service that makes people really happy (that solves a problem for them) you will basically be able to print money at will.
If you are struggling online right now, you might want to write down the ways that what you are selling makes people happy and solves problems.
OK, I’m out!
Talk to you soon –
