Two weeks ago, I moved to France. What happened?
- A broken pelvis,
- sleeping on the kitchen floor,
- almost writing off my Tesla.
First off, my move to France had two phases.
- Take all of my office and computer stuff over to France in a van myself.
- Hire a moving firm to move all of my household stuff into storage.
The move seemed to go well until the moving truck backed into my Tesla and left a huge dent in the door.
After about 4 or 5 days of being in France, I finally got my office set up, my computers online, and the house in order and tidied up.
I had almost finished unpacking when my cat, Miriam, stumbled into the kitchen with an injury to her back leg. It was late at night. So I couldn’t go to the vet.
She seemed to be in pain when I tried to move her, so I left her on the kitchen floor and put my duvet next to her.
I ended up sleeping on the floor with Miriam that night.
The next day, I took her to the vet for an x-ray and we found out that she had a broken pelvis.
Earlier today, Miriam had a special operation where they inserted a metal plate to repair her pelvis.
Apparently, she’s pulled through and is absolutely fine. We collect her on Saturday. I guess it’s going to be quite a long recovery for her.
The big lesson I learned from moving to France is, don’t try and do too much yourself.
I definitely think I tried to do too much stuff myself, driving the van, loading boxes, unloading dishwashers and fridges with Dave.
I think I’ll hire someone else to do that next time!!
The same can be true in business.
If you try and do too much stuff yourself, you’ll end up running around in circles, never actually accomplishing anything.
If you really want to get ahead in business quickly, or want to get ahead with affiliate marketing, and massively accelerate your results, you really should hire experts.
In other words, hire outsources to do the tasks, you’re either no good at
to do the tasks, which you hate doing.
Outsourcing has definitely helped me grow my business enormously over the last 12 months.
Would you like to find out the secrets outsourcing?
I would like to invite you to an online training class where I’ll show you exactly how you can outsource traffic generation and profit from that traffic.
All the best.
Really sorry I won’t be attending the London lunch today because of all the problems with Miriam and her broken pelvis.
As some of you may know, Dave is a bit of a petrolhead and absolutely loves his white Jaguar.
We quite often get into discussions comparing notes between my Tesla and his Jaguar.
A couple of weeks back, we got onto the subject of top speeds and I asked Dave how fast would his car actually go if we put it on a racetrack, 100 miles an hour, 110, 120.
It’s hard to say. Dave suggested that we go to a racetrack to test out how fast his car would actually go.
I went online and booked a track day at the Goodwood Race Circuit.
A week later, we both turned up at the race circuit.
There was a very interesting mix of people at this event, drivers with regular street cars such as BMWs and Mercedes to the most serious bunch, the people who obviously did this as their full-time hobby.
This consisted either of very fast sports cars such as McLarens or Aerial Atoms or modified Japanese imported cars like the kind of cars you see in the Fast and the Furious films!!
I decided not to be a passenger in the car as this would fill me with horror so I decided to stand on the track side and take photos.
I could see Dave was having great fun and managing to overtake and outmaneuver cars which were much more powerful than his.
On the main straight, Dave managed to get up to 119 miles per hour. Pretty incredible especially since Dave’s car is a diesel.
Here were loads of different cars there ranging from 30 -year-old BMWs to very expensive brand new McLaren sports cars that cost hundreds of thousands of pounds.
The guys driving the McLarens seemed to be very cautious and were not on the track for very long at all…
I guess they were kind of paranoid about writing their cars off.
Now the guys in the much older cars which they had obviously modified themselves were taking much higher risks and seemed to be having a lot more fun.
Sometimes, simple is better
The same thing is true with internet marketing and affiliate marketing. Simple is sometimes best.
There are all sorts of expensive, complicated and glamorous tools you can buy as an internet marketer.
- Keyword tools
- Competition analysis tools
- Building sales funnels
- Learning loopholes
Sometimes you just need to get back to basics, keep things simple..
- Find an affiliate product to promote.
- Send traffic to that product.
- Make sales.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it?
Well, that’s because it is. These are the strategies I use when I make sales with affiliate marketing.
Would you like me to teach you how to profit from affiliate marketing the simple way?
If you’d like me to teach you how to become a super affiliate and how to profit from affiliate marketing without having to learn all that complicated stuff. Watch this video to find out more 🙂
Must go now.
All the best,
By the way:
I’ll upload some photos from the track today to my Facebook page and also to my blog.
At 10pm on Wednesday I saw a post on Facebook advertising an Internet marketing meet up in Glasgow. One of the things I love to do in life is make snap decisions. Personally I don’t see the point in thinking about something for days or weeks. I prefer to just get on with it and take massive action.
OK so I thought about it (for all of about 10 seconds !!) and then decided to set off the next morning for the first major road trip in my new Tesla electric car.
It was funny when I walked into the showroom last week to collect my new car, there was a big sheet over the car and a sign next to the car which said Sarah Staar’s Tesla.
The staff in the showroom gathered round and said 123 then pulled off the sheet to reveal the car.. Pretty cool hey…
If you’d like to see a video of the reveal it’s on my Facebook profile page.
The thing I love about Internet marketing is the freedom it gives you to do stuff when you want and how you want.
So I set off on Thursday morning and drove to my first stop, which was Bristol, (yes I know it’s not exactly en route !) to meet up with my good friend Deborah and chat about a project she is working on for me.
Now I got this Tesla just in time to take advantage of their free supercharger network.
So I charged the car up in Bristol at a supercharger point and was absolutely gob smacked at seeing a Volvo plugged into one of the Tesla chargers !!
This is like someone stealing your petrol at a service station….
I hope the person that owns AE17 TEY has a good reason for using a Tesla supercharger.
A second Tesla owner pulled up and we proceeded to have a conversation about this, we were both rather puzzled…..
It’s quite funny really, I guess I’ve joined the Unofficial Tesla Club… whenever I charge my car and there’s another Tesla owner at the charging station we seem to strike up a conversation… great fun.
Glasgow is a bit of a hike up the road from Bristol, normally I wouldn’t even consider going that distance in a car – just too tiring.
But I paid for the autopilot feature in my Tesla and I’ve been testing it out on this trip, and yes the car actually steers itself!!! kind of self driving… I have to say it makes long trips much more bearable and actually quite fun.
And it’s very safe by the way..
The great thing is since the car is driving itself it’s giving me the time to catch up on reading some books…
Don’t worry I’m not actually physically reading them with my hands nowhere near the steering wheel !!
I’m using Audible, which is a service which reads books out to you.
This is an absolutely brilliant app to use if do any kind of long distance travelling.
This means driving a car is no-longer wasted downtime, we are now able to timeshift.
So what books have I been reading on this trip ?
How a group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks created the digital Revolution.
This is a very interesting book and tells the story about how our world of Digital Tech came about.
I’ve only read about a quarter of the book so far, covering the development of the computer and the transistor. The lessons I’ve learnt so far from this book are :
– don’t try to do everything yourself, surround yourself with experts and motivate those experts to do brilliant work for you.
– also don’t get stuck in your own ways of doing things, be prepared to admit that you’re wrong and be prepared to change how you do things.
Anyone Can Do It – my story by Duncan Bannatyne
I just started reading this book this morning, but so far I’ve learnt :
– you don’t need to be first to the market with an idea, you just need to do it better than anybody else.
