Have you ever tried giving your brain a vacation?

I’m experimenting with something that I call a brain vacation – I just made that term up , not sure if it exists already!

My wife recently stopped reading the news and she felt weird at first , but then after about a week she felt GREAT!

She told me about it a couple months ago and I blew it off.  With the new year coming I thought I give it a try.

So far I haven’t read the news for about 10 days, and yes, at first I felt weird.  But now I felt really good – hard to explain until you try it yourself.

Will I do this forever? Probably not.

The lesson here is that we’re being assaulted with some much information, most of it negative on a daily basis, it probably a good idea to take a break now and then, and give your brain a vacation!

If you’re gonna do this.  I wouldn’t just cut out the news.  I would limit any source where you’re being bombarded with stuff that’s negative. That could be TV, facebook, or twitter, depending on what you’re watching and reading.

New Direction for This Blog

I know.

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve blogged at all.  Let’s just say I was a bit preoccupied!

I’m shifting the focus on of this blog.  I’m going to share experiences from my last 4 years, on how I build a software company from zero to $11.6 million then back to zero in a couple short years!

I’ll share everything I learned along the way.  The stuff I did right, the stuff I did wrong, and the stuff I did horribly wrong!

Never Stop Testing and Tweaking

This is a BIG one that I’ve been VERY guilty of in the past.

Consider this scenario…

Your business is humming along, you’re making a solid profit. So you get lazy, you let things run on autopilot.

Then one day you wake up 6 months later and you realize your profits are down by over 50% from what they were 6 months ago. You thought it was just a slow time in the market, and that things would pick up but no you realize it’s something more.

You’ve been schooled by increasing competition.

By the time your realize what’s happened, you’re F’d and might as well start something new.

I’ve personally been in this scenario and seen a lot of people fall prey to this.

So what’s the alternative?

Make consistent improvement to your business on a weekly, EVEN DAILY basis:

SPLIT TESTING

Split test your landing pages until your blue in the face. I don’t care if you can’t think of anything more to test, just make something up and TEST IT.

This is the ONE biggest thing I’ve been doing lately that has skyrocketed my profits and allowed me to blow past my competition.

Now you want to have a SOLID SYSTEM in place for split testing, whether it’s a custom php script or google website optimizer, or whatever. As long as it’s something you feel comfortable with and do NOT have to ask an outsourcer for help every time you want to setup a new split test.

Remember, the biggest key is here to consistently split test. 8 out of 10 of your split test will be duds, it’s the 1-2 that will skyrocket your profits. You gotta keep testing until you find those!

IMPROVE & EXPAND YOUR SITE

You need to be constantly be working on ways of improving your site content, adding more content, working on your search engine ranking and SEO.

It’s important to have a system in place to get these done, you do NOT need to be the person doing these.

COMPLIANCE

This one’s a big deal, that almost NO ONE gets. You have to constantly ask yourself : “How can I make my site and product offerings more compliant?”

and

“What are some of my most compliant competitors doing that I’m not?”

You can do all the split testing in the world and have a massive conversion rate. That’s gonna mean NOTHING if you get slapped by Google.

Gotta Learn How to Lose, Before You Can Win

That’s right.

You MUST learn how to lose, BEFORE you can learn how to win!

I recently started doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Needless to say it’s BRUTAL, especially when you’re first starting out.

After getting my ass kicked a bunch of times, I was discouraged. My instructor, Alex, told me to not to worry. Every one gets beat up in the beginning, and that only by getting beat up will you learn how to win.

And that’s SO true, in almost everything in life.

When I first started affiliate marketing back in 2005, I failed for 9 months straight before I had ANY success.

Problem is most people are too scared to fail. You know who I’m talking about.

If you don’t learn how to fail, how to lose, you’ll NEVER learn to win.
