On selling online

There’s two kinds of products you can sell online.

  1. Products that (claim to) help you make money.
  2. Everything else.

You can push the former really hard. The latter, however, requires the opposite approach.

The ultra-soft sell.

Who’s the one

Who’s the one person you owe the most for shaping your career?

This is an important question.

And if you don’t know the answer almost immediately, you might want to start looking.

Make the bed?

When you’re staying in a hotel, remember this:

You don’t have to not make your bed.

Of course, housekeeping will make it while you’re away.

But it’s your early-morning, quick win if you want it.

Or are you?

Smokers. Gamblers. Drinkers. Liars. Cheaters.

You see them and know.

You’re glad.

You’re not one of them.

Or are you?

What contract?

This friend.

That service.

This box.

That newsletter.

This tool.

That software.

Nothing’s under contract.

If they’re not making your life better, richer, or more joyous, let ’em go.

Nothing’s under contract.
