I know what it's like to get caught up in the daily loop of email, FB, Forum.
Tis' what Eban Pagan calls the OCD Loop.
Great advice is to batch up all of those tasks into a specific time each day.
Success in consulting and local marketing is no secret technique or new hypey trick. It's ALL about having your day scripted out to the tee on exactly what you need to do, and then simply implementing. Knowing what value you offer and knowing 110% in your heart that you can really help businesses.
It's all about systems baby!
You should quickly be able to know your numbers. For instance, for every 20 contacts you make, you'll get at least 10 appointments, and close at least 3 deals.
If you've set a baseline for your deals, say 7k, then you know how much to do and what to do to hit those goals.
So in this instance you could be earning 21k in a month very part time.
Those stats are just for example sake, but are super realistic, and some would even call low numbers.
But it's all about being focused, and having your day scripted out. The more structure you have in your daily business, the more freedom you will have.
