Spending Money Like A Drunken Sailor…
The other day when I was walking my dog Scruff, I realized quickly how much I had zoned out.
Yes, I was thinking about all the money I have spent, learning to build a business online!
And then it hit me!
One of those damn Bougainvillea branches growing like a wild octopus tentacle over the back fence of a lane I walk down.
Have you ever seen the thorns on those plants?
They are HUGE and on top of that, the wind had it flying around like a spinning top.
Boy, that soon brought me back to earth. Lucky I wear glasses I hate to think what could’ve happened.
Back to the main thing
Anyway, getting back to the money I have spent. Am I being like a drunken sailor wondering everywhere online with no real purpose spending money chasing shiny objects?
Possible at the start, I would say yes!
Being seduced by what seemed quick and easy ways to build a business online….Not anymore!

Well, there is one thing I can share with you …building online is critical today.
Each step you take investing in yourself, learning and growing gets you closer to achieving your ultimate goal. Remembering life is about the journey you take to get to your destination.
Your Deserve It Factor…
There was a quote I heard by Charlie Munger
To get what you want you have to deserve what you want. The world is not yet a crazy enough place to reward a bunch of un -deserving people. How big is your deserving factor?
Charlie hit the nail on the head here. And one thing is key for all of you in small business or start-ups and you want to rake in the profits … Work on your Education Strategy and invest in yourself.
There is no such thing as a traffic problem for your website. There is only a conversion problem.
