A farmer had a garden. He tilled it beautifully. He furrowed the ground. He planted the choicest seed. At long last, the garden began growing. Just as the corn stalks were high in the sky, and the vegetables were almost ripened, the farmer was visited by his pastor.
After a short visit over lemonade and his wife’s homemade pie, the farmer invited the pastor to see the garden he had grown. “um, I think you mean the garden that God has grown.” The farmer looked rather exasperated, but proceeded to show the pastor around his garden. “Look at the corn we grew this year! What a dandy crop” “I believe you mean the corn that the lord grew” his pastor countered.
After about ten minutes of this, the farmer grew weary. “Pastor,” he said ” I get your point. But now I hope you get mine”. Taking the ever smug pastor aside, the farmer said, “let me show you the garden that God grew” and he showed him a vacant field of weeds.
“I don’t mean to be sacriligeous, Pastor, I believe that lt takes a big God AND a hard working man to build a functioning Eden.”

The Lonely Marketer’s Newsletter

looking_out_the_window_by_misslivyoung-d6vhr8k

Dear Marketer,

I know you. You are busy, frustrated, underpaid and underappreciated. You spend hours on the computer and you are lonely.
Some mornings, you wake up and pound on the keyboard wondering if it’s even worth it, if your dream will ever happen.

Other days, you doubt your dream,,, and doubt yourself, wondering if you are even doing the right steps to get there.

Once engaged in a “This is the BIG one” project, you shut yourself off for days from friends and family. Or, you do your work right in the living room, clicking and typing while the family members hover over your shoulder, arguing inches from you on who gets the computer next.

If you have already hit “the big one” (as in, that winning online venture) you work for weeks tweaking and maintaining it; It consumes you.
It isn’t easy starting at internet marketing, and it’s even harder doing it alone.
Which is why I started:

The Lonely marketers newsletter.

This isn’t one of those deals where you sign up for free marketing info and get a snippet of gobbledygook directing you off of your email to another site.
And this isn’t some teaser email that acts like it’s going to give you info, only to pitch its product.

These are purely inspirational and motivational.

The newsletters come about every two weeks, or whenever I have something important to say.

You can get it by signing up below:

 

Thanks! Your first letter will arrive shortly. In the meantime, add us to your safe sender list to ensure deliverability!

Mirror Talk and Money

Hey reader, I’m feeling kind of punchy today. I just want to take you through my house with me for a moment. Here we go, past the laundry in the hallway (can you BELIEVE it reader?) . Try not to judge me too harshly when you see the bathroom, okay? Here we are, at the looking glass. This is where it happens. Does the devil ever meet you at the mirror in the morning? It all starts here. Tell yourself the truth. You’re gorgeous. No, you really are (though I hope you aren’t TOO convinced of that…especially if you so are so beautiful). Take it over the top. Swoon over your looks a moment if no one has done that for you lately (don’t skip this step).

Put a blazer or tie on, wig, whatever you wear to get your look on. Brush your hair if you have some. If you don’t, remind yourself of Telley Savalus; he had it going on and he was bald. If you have belly fat, just don’t look down–look up!

Yes, we are going to talk about self talk, and mapping out your future with your mouth. You’d be stupid to tune me out right now, reader; I am about to CHANGE

YOUR LIFE.

It’s time to let go of all the regrets, doubt, insecurities, and fears you have in your life, family and business. Today’s a new day, and we are going to make it happen!

But it all starts up here. If  your attitude is off, you won’t believe and you won’t move forward with confidence. I know that many of you are new at internet marketing, or you’ve been at it for a long time and you haven’t made any money. Or maybe you are going through something personally, and internet marketing is not even a priority right now. But whatever is going on, I’m going to give you a secret into my daily routine and I promisse you, it will change your life.

The roses on my wall

Around my house are a bunch of beautiful roses that grow there. They were the inspiration for my rose blog. But they weren’t always there…I saw them before they got there. I wrote out what it would be like to have all of those roses around my wall. I did this; I wrote the vision and made it plain.

Reader, this is what you are missing. You need to map out everything, step by step, from here to your end goal.

You need to write down every single thing that you must do/or accomplish for your business to succeed.

Will you need traffic? How will you get it? will you need a better product (or, a product to start with). If you are an affiliate marketer, you need a plan.

But reader, if you are new at internet marketing, don’t get steamed when I tell you that right now, more than anything, you need to know what you are doing.

If you are sitting there right now thinking “I don’t even know what I am doing” then how are you going to know what step to take next?

So get some real education, and stick with just one thing. If you don’t have alot of money, get started with Ebay and sell your extra stuff.

I think it’s wonderful that you have a big wonderful dream! That is the most important thing. But before you launch off in all directions, make sure that you know what you are doing, and what really works.

What’s down below the street

Remember that Sesame Street song, “down below the street?”

“All those wires, all those pipes, different sizes different types, bring you water bring you heat, that’s what’s down below the street.”

This martial arts guy cracked a sidewalk but he also broke his arem. He said that he over focused…he actually could imagine the pipes below the street, so he hit the sidewalk too hard.

Marketer, to be successful, we all need to pull our focus back each day from the bullseye of changing the world, to the rings around the bullseye (daily life).

Take some time today to look at your immediate, present and future. Maybe cleaning up the bathroom and doing the laundry should happen before the computer today. Only you know which priorities go where.

 

How to Brighten Your Day

Every internet marketer knows that it can be a real drag getting things done. I’m going to show you a simple series of daily discipiplines I do to get the day rolling right.

Sit upright. Yup, you heard me right. Before I fall out of bed, I sit up in bed. Admit it, marketer; getting up in the morning can be hard, especially if your day is swirling before you. Product launches, blog posts, and new ebooks to write. Hey, whatever it is that you do on the internet, take a moment to think it out before your feet hit the floor.

Coffee (sorry, Mormons). If you can’t drink coffee (which I personally consider to be one of the five food groups), then drink something to clear your mind and get you going. An energy shake, just water, or something.

Write. Just write. What needs to get done today? I segment a piece of paper into six sections and as I’m reviewing my day, list my to do’s in each section.

Schedule.  Each “to do” gets a time.

Pray. Yes, it’s really true; without a spiritual program, I know I would never be number one on Google for a variety of search terms. And I unbashedly hasten to say, this only works if your spiritual program includes the right mentorjesus holding the world

Post. Get one post on your blog. after prayer and planning your day, that’s the most important thing you can do. Take a week getting it ready, if needed. If you will post one article per week, minimum, you will get more traffic and reader engagement than you could ever hope for.
