..right now, as I’m writing this, I’m waiting for my son Matthew to finish a four hour exam.
Pecking away at the keys from the back seat of the car, it brought me back to all the many times I’ve sat here, making video courses, podcast episodes, and like now, writing emails.
Compared to the action some backseats see – before the baby chairs get installed – I think the back seat of this one has been responsible for some of my best ideas and writing, and paid for itself many times over.
Which always makes me shake my head when I see people throwing the weakest excuse in their way.
They can’t find the time, don’t have the space, or these doozys….I’ll do it when the kids get older….. or when I know a little bit more.
The weakest excuses that could easily be pushed out of the way by a little action.
While you mightn’t be stuck for four hours like me, – listening to the rain bounce off the roof – there’s no reason you can’t be doing something from where you are.
One of those places might be working on that all important email list.
Now, while all those geniuses love talking about list building, they never tell you how to talk to your subscribers, how to keep their attention, or how to sell to them and not look like a used car salesman.
Methinks, it’s because they don’t know how to do it themselves.
But don’t take my word for it, go look at your inbox for proof.
Right now, you can copy the ‘ALL CAPS, ‘Sale Ends Now!’ car salesmen talk, or you can take it nice and easy – like I am- and turn that back seat into your own email wonderland.
A world where people follow you down rabbit holes of entertainment, because that’s what they enjoy reading and opening. A place where no one needs to get hit over the head, or robbed at gunpoint. Why? – Because tomorrow’s a new day, with a new idea, and a new email.
If you’d like to make money from the back seat of your passion wagon go here.
PS – Sitting back here also brought two things to mind. One, is everyone’s kids as filthy as mine. And two, how long does it take for a McDonald’s fry to start decomposing? – Because I swear this one has to be at least 6 months old.
