This is the second email in a series to help you reduce the workload involved in creating a business or a new income stream.
If you missed yesterday’s tip you can find it here.
Today’s tip is about avoiding the tyranny of the blank page which can cost you hours of productive time.
Something I know well from writing fiction.
You have this great idea but getting the first chapter done is intimidating. How can you turn your idea into words?
Whatever you write is never as good as you wanted it to be or as you imagined it would be.
Yada yada yada.
It’s so hard to get the first chapter right and we won’t even speak about the opening paragraph.
In the end, you just have to get over yourself.
And write something no matter how terrible it might turn out – the well-named crappy first draft.
Once you have something down, you can improve it. And lots of ideas on how to do that come to mind. You know what needs to be fixed.
But you can do nothing about a blank page.
So whatever you’re creating: an email, a post, a book cover, an article, or a product, I want to encourage you not to care too much about the quality of your work in that initial attempt.
Don’t put off starting, just do it, and get over the blank page moment.
Make tons of crappy first drafts. As crappy as you like. And then improve them.
The world is filled with people who are waiting to start but you have too much to do for that.
Put finger to keyboard and just get on with it. You’ll be glad you did. 💖

This is an amazing deal on all these Coach Glue training packages – available only until April 21st.

BONUS SELECTION ( 💖💖💖 ITEMS ONLY)
As I had a lot of requests for various different bonuses, it’s now official that you can choose any one of the recent bonuses when you buy through any of my links marked with a 💖💖💖 in my newsletter on top of any other bonuses mentioned.
This works better for those who already own one or more of these or who want to buy a couple of items.
To claim just send your receipt(s) to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know which bonus(es) you would like. I’ll verify with the vendor and send them right back to you, usually within a day or so.
NOTE: A few people have asked for one of my bonus reports when they bought one of my own products but I haven’t been offering these as I don’t want to compete with my affiliates who like to offer their own bonuses or who maybe don’t have time to make extra bonuses.
So here’s what I’ll do for any sales going forward from today. For my products only, whether you buy through my link or through an affiliate, whenever you spend $17 or more in one transaction, you can also choose a bonus report from the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖
By the way, there are a few new bonuses in the works. I just have to get them done and out of the works!
Here are the currently available bonuses.
