    Hi Barrie, Interesting article and Video, It certainly is vital to build that listen but even more important to have a responsive list. I have been a victim in the past with this myself having a number of people on the list but it was not very responsive, Thankfully now I am on the right path to building a responsive list that wants to work with me and buy from me. Thanks for sharing 😉

      Inspiring Paudie. It’s surprising how many people will be able to connect to this subject I think.

    Hi Barrie,

    So many good tips in here! Particularly that darned ‘shiny new ball syndrome!’.

    When we get involved in internet marketing, inevitably we get marketed too! So to be fair, you do need to develop a thick skin, because some of these people really know what they are doing! LOL

    The other side of course, is it’s easier to blame the business we are with when it’s not working, rather than looking to ourselves and our own failings and/or lack of skill sets.

      Sometimes we get “blinded by light” Robin and need some decent shades to see exactly where we are.

    HI Barrie,

    This is really good and hopefully people will realise that you need to start at the beginning first and gain an income from just one or so businesses.

    Then slowly try another one. But lets educated first. Learn, and practice and eventually earn that income.

    Income on the internet is not an overnight thing. Not if its long term.

    Pretty good stuff here.


    Lisa 🙂

    Right on the nail!

    I was just talking about this. Focusing on just one income source is really the key…

    “One step at a time”

    “Crawl before you walk”

    Talk later,

    Hi Barrie, You are absolutely spot on there with the ‘shiny object’ distraction syndrome.. Learn the skills that will help to ‘Brand’ you Barrie, in whatever is your passion in life… I quite agree that you cannot earn a living from multiple streams from day one! You must choose ONE and only ONE, perfect it and earn a healthy consistent living from that ONE… Then and only then, can you move on to number two… You must keep giving your followers (you list) the guidance and leadership they expect from you, no matter what shiny object you choose as #2……Enjoyed your post. Kind regards Ron

    Hey Barrie,

    Great tips here and liked your video post. I was guilty of Shiny Object Syndrome when I just started and learned my lessons … just couldn’t focus. Currently I am building one main online opportunity apart from my offline business. You’ll get better results.
