In fact, I've been very guilty of it for the last few months, but I'm putting a stop to it in my own life.
What mistake am I talking about?
-Its not sending tons of spammy links to your website in a day
-Its not forgetting to set a daily cap on your PPC campaign
-Its not making a few typos so your article isn't accepted at EZA
-Surfing the Warrior Forum for 2-3 hours a day without any purpose
-Skimming through a new WSO or ebook every other day
-Taking "breaks" that turn into an hour or more away from your IM business
In other words, THINGS THAT DON'T MAKE YOU MONEY!
Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Warrior Forum.
But it's very easy to get trapped in here, just like a good book, movie, video game, whatever.
Its easy to justify it sometimes, saying to yourself "I need to learn something new", or "I'm promoting my signature"
But here's something I've noticed lately-
Some of the most successful IMers are NEVER in here
Guys like Ryan Eagle, Tim Atkinson, Jason Fladlien- they're too busy MAKING MONEY to spend all of their time in here.
Are there exceptions? Of course!
There are probably a few 6-7 figure marketers reading this who have thousands of posts, which is sweet because they can balance their WF time and their real work.
For example take Alexa Smith- she has about 12093712987 posts, 1298237198273198 thanks, and yet I NEVER see the little green circle meaning she's online! I swear shes a ninja.
But for most people reading this- those Warriors making less than $100 a day- take heed.
Treat the Warrior Forum as a tool, or maybe a place to relax.
For example it can be a tool for launching JVs, WSOs, or learning something.
It can also be a place to relax. You're surrounded by some of the coolest people in the world, who are also willing to help you!
But when it comes down to it- your business is going to be MUCH more successful if you're out there planning your business and taking action than cruising the WSO section all day.
With that- I'm off to make money
