The one thing that means we will all fail

Ok, so loads of us all trawl the internet day in and day out trying desperately to make enough money to get out of the rat race and live a happy secure life.

Problem is we are all kidding ourselves, what actually happens is we all start following each other and it ends up with the blind leading the blind.

Take this post for instance, I now have over 520 followers but it will get twenty views at best, and probably 100 likes, I challenge you to leave a comment or read it through to here, because if you think it through if you don’t read this why would you think people would read yours?

Lockdown Ending…….

So here is to the news that the UK is coming out of lockdown over the next 3 months, this is, of course, dependent on the rate of infection not going through the roof again!

This is a quick post to say that as us and the rest of the world shake off our hangovers and social distancing fatigue, the first to get focus on the future will have a massive advantage over the crowds.

Millionaires have been made through face masks and hand sanitizer as well as benefiting from corrupt purchasing deals by governments around the world, and yes you cant take it with you but you can enjoy money while you are here.

There is, however more at stake than that, the huge shift to alternative power and the shift in global economies means that money is even more important now to the standard of your life, and that of your children, now is the time for the 18 hour days and plenty of caffeine to secure your families future.

Dont let the pandemic blind you to your goals and your responsibilities.

Gfpharma.co.uk goes podcasting

Well, friends it’s like this, I haven’t posted in a while because I, like everyone else has been trying to get my head together with this covid nightmare, so as the title suggests gfpharma.co.uk goes podcasting in a bid to generate traffic and interest.

I will be putting a summing up of how the business has gone so far quite soon and suffice to say it doesn’t make for light reading, but I think that it is a message that needs to be put out there.

Spoiler alert, there are lies and then there are online business guru’s

So far we have made a minus balance and the trend looks to be consistent, so if you do not have the appetite for my next post then just take that as a warning, always assume bullshit until proved otherwise.

Valuable lesson

However all the money we have spent has not been wasted, the experience has taught me more about online marketing and life in general than I could have learned anywhere else, this I have carried into my podcasts, it is time for the bullshit to end and I hope to do my part to bring about that end, so please have a listen (or not) and I will catch you very soon, be lucky everybody.

Progress at last!

Ok so finally things are moving, the new ad is running and the focus groups are working well, our store session rate has gone up 400 percent!

That actually sounds better than it is because of the low number to begin with but I’ll take the glory for now.

So are you rich now?

Hell no! Still not sold a single thing so now we need to address two possibilities

  • The store sucks ass, as uncomfortable as it may be to think this, it is a real possibility that your idea of a store, or mine in this case, just isn’t good enough so we will be looking at that to see if we can get a conversion rate at all!
  • It could just be in the numbers, the reason people can make so much money on the internet is because of the sheer size of the customer base, we are only selling in England so we have a smaller base than others but still, a good conversion rate is 1.5 to 2 percent so the more customers the more conversions! I hope so anyway.

So that’s it for this rant, hope your business is doing better than mine and that I catch up to you soon if it is !

Launching my supplement company

I have been quiet for a long time, this is because among other things I have been working on launching my supplement company gfpharma.

This is a very exciting time for me and my partner, however it is a very crowded marketplace so we will have to think slow and act fast.

I am hoping that I can provide insight into the highs, lows and strategies as we learn.

Start date is next week sometime so see you then!

Grant Cardone’s The Millionaire Booklet – How to Get Super Rich

https://millionairebooklet.com/free

Now, hear me out on this one, I know that sharing this seems to go against a lot of my values but it is totally free, there is no cost and despite what anybody thinks about the showmanship of Mr Cardone’s seminars and his demeanour in general, it is undeniable that the man has money and lives the lifestyle that we all are striving for.

I did not actually get the ebook as suggested here but rather I listened to the audiobook on audible and to be honest there is a lot that got me thinking, and a good few challenges to the way most people see money that make sense.

It certainly helped me re-align a lot of my thoughts and as a result changed my path a little, you should give it a read or a listen because taking on new opinions is never a bad thing, if you dont agree then it strengthens your resolve in your own thoughts and beliefs and if you do agree then you have learnt something new and can adjust accordingly.

Tired of procrastinating To overcome it take the time to understand it |

https://ideas.ted.com/tired-of-procrastinating-to-overcome-it-take-the-time-to-understand-it/

Another amazing article and possibly one of the most valuable lessons of all, without the ability to control procrastination we literally wont get anything done, ever, period.

I agree largely with a lot of the points raised and want to share it so we can all challenge ourselves, and see if we are standing in our own way.

Don’t start doing, just DO because the alternative is years of reading stuff on the internet trying to decide which path to take, meanwhile days months and years will tick by, others will advance, some will fail, but you will do worst of all because you will stay still.

Motivation for Monday

Hey, following on from this weekends posts about Mondays and how we feel about them, just remember to be present in the moment and not to dwell on the past, you cannot change any mistakes you made or undo any bad decisions, but you can work harder on better decisions and take the opportunity of a new week to get closer to your goals.
