It’s information overload. Everywhere you look there’s an amazing freebie to download, or a business development course to take. I get it. I’ve been there and totally fallen into the I NEED MORE EDUCATION trap. It’s so tempting. My inbox was overflowing with offers, PDFs, courses and more. I wanted to know how to grow my blog, social media following, email list, how to get more clicks on videos and MORE MORE MORE. If I’m doing this, then I bet you are doing this too.
Let’s simplify. It will help us in our personal life AND our business. We need a clear path and direction. Let’s pair down and get rid of things that drive us crazy in our life. How can we take control of the overwhelm.
