At least once or twice every week, I'll be at my desk (or at the dining room
table) with my Franklin Covey planner open and a stack of laminated checklists
"What are you doing, honey?" she calls, already knowing the answer.
"I'm planning," I reply with a smile.
She laughs and I get back to work.
She laughs because she swears I spend half of my time "planning". But,
if you ask me how I'm able to get as much work done as I do in only 3 hours a
day, I'll point to a black Franklin Covey planner with about a dozen laminated
Building an Internet business is easy. Seriously. I'm not saying that it's not
complicated, because it is. I'm just saying that it's easy to accomplish if you
just have a system in place.
There's very little in this world that can't be accomplished with the
right set of action steps in front of you.
Today, I'm going to give you such a system for building your Internet
business. There are only 4 steps...
1. Decide What You Want To Do. Do you want
to run an eBay(R) business? Be an affiliate marketer? Buy and sell reprint
rights? Get involved in niche marketing? While all of those things will likely
find their way into your plan in time, you gotta begin with one thing at a time.
My recommendation: Choose a "broad" topic you are interested in and
begin building a list of folks interested in that topic.
2. Determine A Weekly Action Plan. After you
decide what you want to do, it's time to determine how to get it done. What I do
is this: I create a weekly set of action steps. That is, I have a set of things
I do on Monday, on Tuesday and so forth.
Decide how many hours (as little as ONE) you want to work each day and
schedule yourself a reasonable amount of things to get done in that time frame.
Repeat this process week after week.
My recommendation: Begin writing ezine articles to promote your list ... and
affiliate programs. It's the easiest way to get free traffic and build your list
at the same time.
3. Devote Yourself To Staying On Schedule.
The important thing here is to stick to it. The easiest way that I know of to
make certain you develop discipline in your schedule is to NOT set unrealistic
expectations. Give yourself ample time to do each day's action step - don't
Look for progress along the way to celebrate. Reward yourself when you've
reached a milestone. And, remember, you're GROWING a business. Just like
physical growth, it takes time ... it WILL happen if you remain committed.
My recommendation: Weave in simple activities related to the following
categories - List building (ezine articles), product creation (conduct
interviews or hire ghostwriters), site development (making your site convert
more visitors into buyers) and education (continuing to learn new ways to grow
4. Develop Additional Shortcuts. As you get
better and better at working with your lists, creating products and tweaking
your site, you'll want to continue to improve your business with new ideas,
strategies, tools and resources. The key is simple: never stop learning!
Visit forums. Read articles. Download reports. Identify sites and resources that
CONTRIBUTE to your success in educating you. You want faster results, bigger
increases, automated processes, and other ways to get more accomplished and more
profit, with less work involved.
Everything depends on you developing a plan and sticking to it.
And that is the REAL secret to building a high-profit Internet business!

HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM.
ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADE PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF THE HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.
