What This One Tea Shop Did Differently To Make Me A Long Term Customer

Several years ago, my wife and I made a conscious effort to remove sugary drinks entirely out of our diets. No more high fructose corn syrup. No more Boba milk tea and no more delicious milkshakes. For my wife however, cutting out sugar was particularly difficult because she hates the taste of water. (Given that water is tasteless, I personally don’t see how you could possibly “hate the taste” but that’s a topic for another discussion). Anyway when we’re not drinking water, we both drink a lot of tea because it tastes good and there are 0 calories...

What Everyone Should Know About Starting A Business Vs Working A Day Job

If you read a lot of business and entrepreneurship blogs like I do, you’ve probably noticed that almost every article out there glorifies quitting your day job. Quit that soul sucking job of yours and call your own shots! Why work for someone else when you can be your own boss? Fire your boss and live happily ever after. Here’s the thing. Even though my blog is called “My Wife Quit Her Job”, I’m actually not “anti day job” at all. In fact, I’m a strong proponent of working full time for someone else if that’s what makes you happy. And I can...

The Secret To Prioritizing Your Time And Achieving Business Success

This post was written by Nemo Chu, who built a 7-figure eCommerce business from scratch in 1 year—while working a demanding day job. He has since quit his job and now offers free advice in his newsletter. I really wish I’d learned this sooner. See if this sounds familiar: “You’re busy. You’ve set your financial goals. Yet, you’re spinning your wheels and struggling to achieve your goals even though you’re doing more and more stuff.” That was my story. And it’s the story of some people who hire me to coach them on Clarity. Most of us want to be more financially...

6 Reasons Why Copying Amazon Is A Bad Idea For Your Ecommerce Store

When it comes to designing your ecommerce store to maximize conversions, you would intuitively think that copying another successful online store would be the logical thing to do. After all if an online store is doing well, they’ve probably figured out the most optimal design right? Because Amazon.com is one of the most successful ecommerce stores in the world, we should all emulate exactly what they are doing right? The other day, I received a question from one of my Create A Profitable Online Store students who asked… Steve. I just went through your module on best practices for conversion...

How My Student Tracey Sells Products In The United States From A Foreign Country

I often ask my readers what is holding them back from signing up for my full blown ecommerce course and one of the most common questions I get asked is…. My country doesn’t have a large market for what I want to sell. Does your class work outside of the United States? Can I make money if I live in a completely different country? Here’s the thing. When you sell into a country with a much smaller market, there tends to be much less competition as well. So what ends up happening is that you can often target...

Why Only Selling On EBay, Amazon And Etsy Is Like Gambling

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about why you should start your own store from complete scratch when there are marketplaces out there like Amazon, Etsy and EBay that can offer you instant sales. And it’s true. If you choose to sell a popular item on Ebay for example, chances are that you will be able to generate some revenue. And it’s also true that many people are making pretty decent money on platforms like Amazon and Etsy as well. So with that being said, why the heck would you ever want to own your own store? ...

Income Report: How My Blog Performed As A Business In The First Half Of 2014

Back in 2009 if you asked me whether I thought my blog could ever make more money than my day job, I would have said “Hell No!”. In fact, my Mom is still amazed that MyWifeQuitHerJob.com is able to make any money at all. Just the other day, I had a Skype chat with my mom and she was like… Mom: Let me get this straight. People sit at their computers, click on your ads and you make money? I still don’t understand how that works. So can you just sit at home all day...

2 Simple Tweaks That Doubled My Email List Signups And My Take On Single Vs Double Optin

Out of all the traffic sources that bring in revenue to MyWifeQuitHerJob.com, most of the money that I make is derived directly from my email list. Without my email list, I would not be selling very many copies of my ecommerce course. Without my email newsletter, I wouldn’t be converting nearly as many affiliate offers. And without email, I would not be receiving as much traffic as I currently receive today. Because email is such a crucial part of my blogging business, it’s important for me to maximize the size and quality of my email list. So today, I...
