Over the years, my business has changed a lot. I have gotten away from blogging, because I went full time into options trading. Unfortunately, that leaves a large hole in my traffic, since without new content, no new people come to my websites. I thought I was ready to walk away from blogging entirely and was thinking about downsizing my domain holdings this year. But the stock market did something that reminded me that it is not always a good thing to step away from one of your prime income sources.

When things look badThe market dropped almost 1.5% in a week. While 1.5% doesn’t look bad, it actually translates to larger numbers inside one’s portfolio. My portfolio value dropped almost 25%! That put the fear of God into me. It told me that I should not stop what got me here in the first place, since closing off one income source to grow your current holdings is probably not a good idea. I have a responsibility to my family that I have not taken lightly. So when I see my legacy lose a quarter of its value in the span of a week, it is time to get back to business and bringing in money the old fashioned way.

I am still going to be doing my options trading, because I have a system in place to keep me earning good money, but I will be writing more on my blogs. Writing is actually good for my mind. I used to say this a lot in the prime of my blogging and podcasting days. I got a lot of therapy out of it. Then I stopped podcasting during the worst of my grief from the loss of my father and then my mother to cancer. Much of my grieving became channeled into just getting my life into some semblance of normalcy. It is finally as close as it will ever be to that goal, but I do not plan on being satisfied with normalcy.

I have set some goals that took a major hit with the profit taking in the market. All that means is the timetable might be rearranged for a while. Many of my investments are long term, so a value drop for a short time is not critical. As long as the market levels off and then turns around, everything there will be fine. But a few of my short term goals got set back. All that means is that I need to keep going.

When you see a goal get pushed further out, it does not mean your long term goals have to suffer, it just means you get to work on making the next goal attainable in spite of the setback. Hence my getting back to writing.

Let’s kick ass! The first month is gone, month two is ahead of us. Look at your goals and figure out what is needed. Then get back to work.

Writing a book is only half the battle unless you already have a string of successful books under your belt. You have to promote your book to let your potential audience know it is available.

It is possible that the book will start to sell on its own, especially if it is in a very hungry niche (one where people are yearning for more information on the topic). But why take chances on a slow start?

One of the ways you should be stacking the cards in your favor is by preparing some promotional materials to submit to Social Media, blogs and other websites. One of those is a Book Trailer – a short video that peaks the interest of prospective customers. These book trailers can then be uploaded to YouTube and other video sharing sites, as well as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn to get the word out as far and wide as possible about your book!

Here is a podcast I did about Book Trailers:

PS – You really should check out the Easy Sketch Pro software… it looks like it will totally rock for making Book Trailers!

 Pure Leverage

Ever wanted to be the first to have access to a powerful
tool or a new method that works? Well, you now have
the chance to have just that! And it will only take $1

the power of leverage to help create a toolbox that will

but we give you the step by step methods that have

    And honorable mention went to the Lite Version of Evergreen Business System (EBS):

    http://wsoinsiders.com/go/ebs/

    During the show, I mentioned how if you aren’t certain how you will use the EBS system to make money, you should definitely invest in the Lite version, where you get unlimited use of the system for only one webinar. If you don’t make any money from that webinar, you only invested $97 instead of $497. But if you find yourself killing it with that one webinar, and want to branch out into other markets, then jump on the $497 version at:
