It’s Friday and I’ve been working hard this month to revamp how I do things.
Aka a lot of reminiscing and rebuilding.
During this time, I noticed a number of mistakes I’ve made over the years.
Mistakes you’d do best to avoid...
Here’s just a few of them:
Having an email list may be the most important part of your business.
The thing is insanely valuable.
Yet I still don’t capture many emails from my website.
And by diligently, I mean investing money into it.
Future you’s bank account will thank you.
I was a freelance writer for years.
I’d travel around Latin America making a few grand a month and not working too much.
I wasn’t focused on business, becoming a better writer, or raising my rates.
I should have dramatically raised my rates every six months and niched down to areas I could write killer content and copy in.
Once you start seeing some money come in, don’t be afraid to pivot.
Don’t be afraid to make changes that might initially hurt your income, but will help it in the long run.
Once you see money come in.
Don't change pace until you've found some success, fam.

Over the years, I’ve been far too focused on organic traffic.
SEO this, keywords that.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…
I never knew how valuable Twitter is.
It’s damn near the best place to share ideas in the world.
If your target audience has a decent IQ and tends to be more motivated than the average bear, use this platform!
YouTube and Instagram can both be exceptionally valuable.
Hell, some have found ways to monetize platforms like Pinterest.
Every brand, personal or otherwise, should be using these platforms right now.
Punto. Blanco. Periodo.
If you’re going to come around this corner of Twitter, then make sure you have your priorities in line.
The people around here do shit.
They handle business.
Te lo juro.
Get the fuck to work.
Oh, and if you dig it…
