My friend said this one sentence and it changed my business forever.

I was having lunch with a friend of mine (who is multimillionaire from his online businesses) and we were talking about new business projects we were working on, and he casually said this:

“I only work on projects that have the potential to bring me an additional 6-7 figures per year.”

I didn’t realize it at that moment, but that sentence ended up changing how I run my business forever. When I went home that night and looked at my (never-ending) business to-do list, I looked at all the tasks on there while thinking about what he said.

I realized very quickly that I was working on some very time consuming projects that didn’t have nearly as much income potential as some of the other things on there that I’d been ignoring for months.

For example, I was spending valuable time working on things that could bring one of my existing businesses a few extra percentage points in earnings per month, all while there were new projects I wanted to build that could equal or surpass the earnings of already existing businesses. In other words, one task might raise my earnings for one of my businesses by 5-10%, while the other could potentially bring an extra six figure business into my entire portfolio! And yet, for some reason, I was putting off executing new projects because I wanted to optimize one of my existing businesses (I wanted it to be *perfect*).

There is obviously nothing wrong with wanting to earn more money from an existing business, but if the new project has a much higher income potential and both activities take the same amount of time, the obvious choice is to move forward with the latter.

And after I started thinking this way, I realized there were all kinds of tasks I was doing that hardly made me that much extra money, and yet I kept doing them, and it was coming at the expense of working on more potentially lucrative projects that were constantly “on hold.”

From that point forward I looked at my business from only a “big picture” standpoint and prioritized my to-do list in order of how impactful those activities would be on my overall business.

Based on my results, I’d recommend you do the same. 🙂

Note: I have made this automated newsletter using AWeber. No website (or Facebook fan page, etc.) is complete until it has a sign up form to collect email addresses (otherwise, you’re leaving money on the table). Every business in the world should have an email list, as well as a newsletter they send out on a regular basis. No matter what kind of online website you have (business website, personal blog, etc.), get a sign up form on there and start collecting emails immediately (even if you don’t have a clear idea of what you’re going to do with that mailing list yet). One of the most common regrets of anyone with an online presence is “not having started collecting emails sooner.” 

AWeber is hands down the most powerful (and affordable / easy to use) email marketing tool for managing and growing automated mailing lists. It is also the most effective tool I have when I need to communicate to my entire audience all at once about anything at all. I highly recommend starting a mailing list as soon as you start your online business, no matter what your goals are. I have a video lesson that shows you how to use AWeber here

My personal website portfolio is made up of both of these types of businesses (generic passive income websites and cared-for blogs), and I suggest you build both kinds of websites for your business as well.
