First Post Using Gutenberg Editor

My photo at my old office in INTI KL (January 2019)

This is my first blog post using the Guttenberg editor in WordPress. So far, so good. For a while, if you are familiar with the old editor, it is confusing, but after a while it makes sense, why WordPress is going this way.

Adam Khoo Tips on Business and Life

I read an article recently on an interview with Adam Khoo on his success. Adam Khoo, in short, is a successful enterpreneur, running a gamut of business offline and online. He gave a few points about his thoughts on business and life.

The summary of the article are as follows

  1. There is a way to generate Youtube advertising revenue.
  2. Even though you are focused on your career and other stuff, do not forget your loved ones, especially family.
  3. Work can make us spend time away from family, but absence makes the heart grow fonder. But, do not stay away too long though.
  4. There are various ways to generate money online. The key is to focus on one method until it works, before moving on to another method. Too many things at the same time can lead to greater failure.

I have to agree with all of the above, especially item no 4. Been guilty of it as well.

Don’t Go Looking For Knowledge ….

In then world of Internet Marketing, it is common to go looking for new knowledge or information. Lately, I was thinking why my internet business was going a bit stale. It is definitely not to the lack of knowledge. A look at my hard disk shown me tonnes of IM programs and tools that I have. So, for a few hours I sat in deep thought wondering what is wrong. Then I realized the answer… I was in this situation because of my hunger for knowledge. Yes, my hunger and thirst for knowledge has lead me to not doing well in my internet business.

info overload
Not me 🙂 just a picture showing what I was in …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yep, my thirst  for knowledge lead me to where I am. Allow me to explain. Simply, I was looking for knowledge and information of internet marketing without actually applying the knowledge/information learnt first. So, I kept jumping from knowledge A to ebook B to seminar C .. and the list goes on and on …. in the end, what do I have? yeah, you guessed it .. INFORMATION OVERLOAD!

So I did a bit of research especially from the IM ‘seniors’ to rectify and avoid this problem in the future. There were two major points outlined

1-Don’t Buy Any IM Related Stuff For The Next Few Months

Don’t buy anything else in the IM arena until you have finished reading AND applying what you have in your hard drive. Basically, begin with what you already have/bought. From what I see, a lot of IM stuff (especially WSOs) are recycled stuff that have been published. Go through what you have first, applied it and see the results. Need further info, uncle Google is around …. 🙂

2- Focus on ONE method/technique Until You Succeed

There are so many methods / technique of IM nowadays. From blogging to FB Ads, there are so many options. Do not follow the current. For example, right now FB Ads is the current ‘in’ thing. Do you need to go and buy the latest FB Ads course, while you have a Google Adwords course that you had purchased that you have not yet finished.

Well, I learnt my lesson and shall be applying these lessons to my online business. I would focus on what I have, apply it first, and then proceed. So far, it is working to a certain extent 🙂 and hopefully for the rest of my IM business life.

happy
Not me but a description of what I felt 🙂
