At the Vienna Business Park, where I was teaching young entrepreneurs this week - I'm on the left.
Why I Removed 4 People From My Newsletter Yesterday
Here’s why I removed 4 people from my newsletter yesterday.
Firstly, my apologies, as several people had a problem with a link in yesterday’s edition - not helped by the fact that the launch time was exactly as I was boarding my plane home!
I managed to reply to a few people from the boarding area, but we were quickly in the air and there was no wifi on that flight - grrr!
On landing, I received emails from a few more people who were having difficulty with the link (still a tiny percentage overall, so even more confusing!) and I was able to reply and help whilst awaiting our bags.
However, 2 people were extremely rude about it, accusing me of “cheating” (although the price was indeed $17 as I’d said in the newsletter, but they’d somehow seen a different version which was, of course, at a higher price.
(To be clear, several people had the same problem, but were very sweet about it - and I thank them and apologise to them here again!)
One other person emailed me to say this software was “obviously no good”, as they had received no other emails from anyone else yesterday “advertising” it (I didn’t understand that point and said so!) and one more person said that he’d bought software online before and had a problem so he’d never buy software online again and “couldn’t understand” why I’d ever suggest buying software this way …
  • Let’s put aside the fact that the days of going into intimidating computer shops and buying overpriced and overpackaged floppy disks are, fortunately, long gone!
It is very important to me that anything I talk about here (and on my podcasts and videos) is used and tested by me before I can confidently recommend it to you.
Yes, on some items (but not all!) I’ll receive a few dollars from any purchases, but that is tiny compared with the vast amounts of time and research to fill the daily newsletter with stuff that is of compelling interest to you, obviously. 
(Even the jokes take time to prepare, believe it or not!)
You also never see that (vast!) amount of items that I see that I never tell you about, either because they’re no good or there are better alternatives.
In short, it’s essential both for my integrity and for your earnings that anything I tell you about can help you.
I answer every email as quickly as I can (usually the day after receiving it, sorry, due to the differing timezones) and am always polite and helpful, as you’d expect.
If I ever lose your trust, I don’t want you to continue reading and listening to me, please.
For that reason, and that reason only, the 4 people mentioned above cannot see this email - I’ve removed them and I’ve asked them not to re-subscribe.
I have no problem with questions or feedback, of course, but mutual trust is essential, as I know you all understand!
As I say so often - I trust that makes sense!
Do let me know if you think that I did right, please!
Build a Business, Not Another Job
Many people dream of working for themselves, being their own boss, and having the freedom to only take on clients and projects they love.
What they don’t realize, though, is that there is a huge difference between building a business and being self-employed.
Business owners scale their income. 
Self-employed people trade dollars for hours.
Business owners leverage the skills and talents of others. 
Self-employed people rely only on their own skills.
Discouraged yet? 
Don’t be. 
Every business owner started out self-employed. 
Just don’t stay there. 
These tips will help you build a sustainable business instead of just another job.
Don’t Try to Do It All Yourself
Building a sustainable business requires that you leverage the talents and time of others. 
While it might seem cost-effective to simply do everything yourself - especially in the start-up phase when you likely have more time than money - it’s a path to burnout and stress.
Instead, separate your tasks into those that you love and are especially suited for (such as marketing) and those you dislike and aren’t good at.
Then make a solid plan to get those that you aren’t good at off your list of things to do. 
If you feel like you can’t afford to outsource it all right now, start with what you tend to procrastinate the most on, even if it’s just a few hours each month.
Don’t Allow Yourself to Work All the Time
The trouble with working at home is that you live at work. 
And that means that there’s no clear line in the sand between your work day and your home life.
Since there’s always work to do, it’s easy to find yourself working every available moment—often to the detriment of your family relationships.
You can help avoid this by:
  • Setting and maintaining clear work hours
  • Having an office with a door you can close when you’ve finished for the day
  • Scheduling time for family and other activities
  • Taking time for yourself
Vacations and Downtime Are Important
As you know, I travel a lot, always in business class in the air, first class on trains.
This gives me access to lounges, chauffeur services, more space to work/relax/read, less chance of interruptions - oh, and better quality food. 
Many years ago, after a long flight to New York in economy, I had to join a long queue for a yellow cab, then got crammed into a plastic seat with a thick perspex wall between me and the driver. 
I later noticed that NYPD prisoners have more room in Police cars. 
Never again …
My record for Uber is 8 cars in one day (!) and if the airline doesn’t offer home to airport and back chauffeurs, I use Blacklane, who meet me at the airport arrivals or on the platform for trains.
I rarely drink alcohol, but I tried a nice glass of Bulgarian red wine on my flight yesterday - not bad!
Such travel seems expensive if you only look at the cost - but you also need to look at the benefits, as with most things, cost is only one factor to consider!
So, don’t ever create a business that requires you to be “in the office” every day. 
At the start, you may need to be available more, but you should definitely be planning for the day when you can be “off the grid” for extended periods of time.
  • Have trusted contractors who can handle things when you’re not available
  • Leverage automation tools such as autoresponders and webinar systems
  • Create repeatable systems so you’re not always re-inventing the wheel
While you might not be able to hit the road with no internet access for days at a time, at the very least you should be able to reduce your workload to a daily check-in.
Sound impossible? 
It’s not. 
With some forethought and planning, you can create a team - and the systems they need - to successfully run your business without becoming overwhelmed and overworked. 
As ever, hope this helps you!
Last Chance - An Extra $1,000 A Month Guaranteed
Today is reasonably the last opportunity for you to get involved with this.
Yes, you can “do it later” - but it will cost you a lot more - I have no control over the pricing, sorry.
To recap, this week, I’ve been talking about how to combine 2 products (I’ve called them Stage 1 and Stage 2 - not much work went into those names, sorry!) and make a guaranteed $1,000 a month from them - the details will be in Stage 3, which will be free from me.
Stage 1 was revealed on Sunday - here’s the link:
and stage 2 was revealed yesterday - the links are below.
For stage 2, let me reiterate that I recommend that you seriously consider upgrading to the Elite or Enterprise editions (for 5 times and 10 times the profit, respectively), as the price will increase to a monthly fee - but you can still get everything for a simple one-off payment today. $17 - I recommend that you upgrade, though: Upgrade to Elite, with $12,700 of fully integrated software for a one-off payment. This will increase to $77 every month if you don’t get it today at the one-off price Enterprise version - $19,500 of fully integrated and easy to use softwareThis will increase to $197 if you don’t get it today at the one-off price.
  • Please note: I cannot “get you in” at these lower prices after today.
A Complete Business For $97
  • No profit sharing - You keep 100% of the money
  • No ongoing fees - everything is set up already for you with nothing more to pay, ever
  • Nothing to upload - it’s all done for you already
  • Nothing to configure - this is all done for you already
  • No website is needed - it’s included for you 
  • No customer support - a fully staffed 24-hour help desk for you customers to use is included
  • Alun’s Bonus - you’ll also receive 50% commissions on all upgrades!
Alun, Tell Me More!
  • All businesses, large or small, need to send emails to their customers.
  • They need to build a list.
  • They need autoresponders.
  • They need experts to handle all of this, too.
  • And all of that is horribly expensive.
You can offer a fully integrated package to do all this  - and more - and you’ll only charge a $17 one-off fee - and you keep all of the money, remember.
This is something that everyone from small local businesses owners to the largest corporations have a need for, of course - and it’s at a price that doesn’t need to be thought about, either!
Personal comment: Too many companies are charging too much for online programs these days - when cloud computing and cheaper, faster, internet connections are the norm. 
I’m looking at you, Mailchimp, GetResponse, LeadPages - and many more!
This replaces all of them - and is fully integrated into one package.
  • You need to order this today, as the number is severely limited, for what I trust are obvious reasons - so, it has to be “first-come, first-served” which I think is only fair, don’t you?
  • You will be able to launch this next Friday.
Now, you’re thinking “how do I get customers?” aren’t you!
  • Also next Friday, I’ll give you my personal latest course on how to do this for free - this is a $2,200 course with, of course, my help and assistance, as always. You just need to send me your receipt, please, as I don’t see your purchase details, of course, for privacy reasons.
Here’s the link, but I cannot promise that this will still be available after today:
Have a successful weekend - after all the exciting ways to earn an extra $1,000 a month were revealed here this week, the light at the end of the tunnel is burning rather brighter than usual, isn’t it!
