Stop The Bleeding
It's the #1 rule of first aid... stop the bleeding.
Because if you don't keep enough blood in the body, it won't matter what else you do.
The patient will bleed out in time.
The same thing goes for your business.
Every business has expenses... it's unavoidable.
But you can avoid paying more than you have to.
And paying for things you don't need.
How many tools, training and software have you bought?
How many are you still paying for - even though you never use them?
Quit throwing good money after bad.
I know how hard it can be.
I've done it myself, more than once.
In fact, I think it should be a regular part of your business routine.
At least every quarter, go through your expenses and make sure you're not wasting money on unused tools or memberships.
Keeping your business lean will make sure you have your eye on the ball.
Here's a secret to earning more and doing less.
It may seem backwards, but doing less is one of the secrets to making business work.
Steve Jobs, billionaire co-founder of Apple knew this. In fact, it was the cornerstone to his success.
This is what he said about it...
“People think FOCUS means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all.
It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are.
You have to pick carefully.
I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done.
Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”
Reminds me of a torture practiced long ago.
It was called lingchi, or, “Death by 1,000 cuts.”
There are lots of opportunities online... too many to count.
Avoid death by 1,000 cuts.
Focus on ONE THING that can get you out of your dead-end job... this year.
Don't know where to start?
P.S. Here’s to working less… and earning more. I can’t promise you’ll make a billion like Jobs, but I'm sure you can make enough to quit your job.
You’ll need an hour or so every day to focus on doing one easy task. How can you fit that into your schedule right now?
