Revealed: Why Being Productive is Only as Difficult as You Make It – New Hub Page Launches

Productivity is the Achilles heel for many online entrepreneurs, and especially if you’ve worked a standard 9-5 job before going on your business journey.

To be honest, productivity was a tough thing for me too. In short, I wasn’t always a productive being, to say the least. Just a couple of years ago (or so), I had my lowest-performance period. I was lucky to have done 2 hours of work a day, and the work I was able to accomplish didn’t get me anywhere anyway. Not cool.

Anyway, I got better, thanks. But this is not due to any magic-bullet solution or a wonder product I bought. No, nothing fancy about my story. I just changed my mindset, learned a few things, and devoted myself to staying productive by using various techniques and setting new habits in my workday. [Read more…]

How to Write a Blog Post – From Start to Finish, as Shown on This Cut-Out-‘N-Keep Blog Post Blueprint

How-to-Write-a-Blog-Post

Okay, I don’t intend to pretend that I’m some kind of a blogging guru who’s just gracefully provided the only proper blog post blueprint along with his fail-proof advice on how to write a blog post. Not at all.

This blueprint is just one of the possible approaches for writing blog posts, but it is my favorite one. The reason why I’m sharing it is because I believe it can be helpful to other bloggers too; especially when faced with a writer’s block of any kind.

The one thing the blueprint is not going to help you with, though, is finding a specific idea for your post, this is still on you, sorry. Anyway, without further delay, here’s the blueprint. It’s available in 5 main formats: [Read more…]

Top 20 WordPress Business Themes of 2013 – The Comparison

I’ve always been fascinated with WordPress themes for some reason, and particularly WordPress business themes. Probably because they allow us to change virtually everything about our sites in just seconds, via a simple “activate” button under a new theme.

This actually gives extraordinary power to any online business owner. Back in the day, getting a new design for a business site had a price tag of $1,000 (if you were lucky), $3,000 (usually), or even $10,000 (the top notch designer’s charge).

Nowadays, this is no longer the case thanks to various WordPress business themes and a bunch of additional plugins. Granted, some of them do have a price tag, but rarely more than $99, and there’s even some quality free stuff (be careful here though).

By the way. Feel free to also check out my list of top plugins for online business and the WordPress glossary I published a while ago. [Read more…]

5 Diet Methods That Appeal to the Entrepreneurial Mind

Portrait of a styled professional model. Theme: teens, education, sport.Today I want to talk about something a bit different. If you know me then you’re aware that I’m a big fan of healthy living and being in shape in general. And by healthy living I don’t actually mean being a vegetarian or any of that BS. My rules are simple, (1) exercise, (2) drink yerba mate, (3) eat a lot of dead animals, and (4) enjoy your life.

But why am I even telling you this? The thing is that being an entrepreneur is not the healthiest profession out there. Most business people are usually stressed out and think that they don’t have time to be healthy (as silly as this might sound).

That’s why today I want to take a break from the usual business-advice-driven post and focus on something that’s probably even more important than our businesses themselves – our health. Yes, I really think that way. If I had to choose between my health and my business, I would go for my health with no hesitation.

The following is a guest post by Matthew.

Entrepreneurs are known for their challenging and innovative approaches not only when they launch a business venture but also when they want to solve an everyday problem. Once they perceive an opportunity, they position themselves in a way that brings them big results from small efforts – a condition called “leverage.” [Read more…]

Page Not Found; But Wait There’s More! – The Art Of Error Page Selling

errorYou’re not on an error page.

Just wanted to say this up front since the headline says “page not found.”

Anyway, the concept of error page selling is something I’ve stumbled upon a couple of weeks ago when looking at a product called Wishlist Error Page Booster (WEPB).

I didn’t actually buy it because I don’t have a membership site, but the idea itself is brilliant.

In short, it’s all about turning your error pages into sales pages.

In a minute, I will show you how to make this possible on any WordPress site for free, but first, let me give you a WEPB example: [Read more…]
