How To Figure Out What You Should Do For A Living If You Hate Your Job

When I was a kid, I always tried new things just for the heck of it. I never thought about it too hard. I simply went with the flow and followed my interests wherever they took me. For example… I spent one summer reading the encyclopedia all day because I was curious about all of the cool facts hidden in these massive tomes. I spent hundreds of hours creating the ultimate Legend Of Zelda strategy guide on a typewriter. I played Street Fighter II for 8 hours a day so I could beat all of my friends. I spent hours learning how to...

ConvertKit Vs AWeber – A Detailed Email Marketing Comparison Written By A 6 Figure Blogger

I’ve been a happy user of AWeber for over 6 years now and I can wholeheartedly say that Aweber has been responsible for over 90% of my revenues. This year, my blog will make well over $600K (likely $700K but the year isn’t over yet) primarily because of email so it’s extremely important for me to stay on top of my email provider choices. Now normally, I have a “don’t fix it if it ain’t broke” mentality so unless I have a specific pain point that is not being addressed, I tend not to change. So why am I looking now? Recently,...

A Holiday Gift Guide Brought To You By My Create A Profitable Online Store Students

A common question I get asked is what my Create A Profitable Online Store students are up to in my class. So this year, I thought that it would be fun to put together a holiday gift guide composed entirely of online stores run by students in my course. Overall, I got many more submissions than I could handle and unfortunately could not include all of them in this guide. But I wanted to thank everyone for their submissions! What’s also cool is that there are shops from across the globe including Canada, Ecuador, and Australia. In any case, if you...

Improving Your Habits And How One Simple Change Can Lead To Business Success

If you’ve been a reader of MyWifeQuitHerJob.com since the early days, you probably remember that I used to refer to myself as a lazy piece of c$%^. Now depending on the person, laziness can have different definitions. To some people, being lazy is sitting around and watching television all day. To some people, being lazy is staying in bed and not getting up until the afternoon. To some people, being lazy is wanting to make a change and not doing anything about it. But to me, laziness is participating in activities that have absolutely zero...

3 Examples Of Short Term Thinking That Will Ruin Your Ecommerce Business

“How long would it take me to become great under you?” he asks. “10 years,” the master swordsman replies. “I don’t have that long,” says the student. “I want to be good soon. What if I worked very hard and dedicated myself completely to the task?” “Ok, 30 years,” he says back. “But that’s even longer,” the student says with some perplexity. “I am telling you I am in a hurry.” And so the master replies, “Precisely, students in a hurry end up taking even longer to learn what is right in front of them.” After teaching my Create A Profitable Online Store Course for several...

How To Prevent Your Amazon Listings From Getting Hijacked, Stolen Or Piggybacked

As more and more sellers flock to Amazon, the competition is becoming increasingly merciless, cutthroat and aggressive.

To make matters worse, if you’re relying on Amazon as your primary sales channel, you need to be aware of the many dangers of selling on Amazon and what could potentially happen to your sellers account at any time. To sum it up, Amazon doesn’t care about you as an individual seller. And since you’re...

Your Ecommerce Business Is Dead Unless You Apply This Long Term Strategy

Recently, I attended 2 back to back online selling conferences and spoke with hundreds of ecommerce entrepreneurs about their main strategies for growth in the coming year. And the one key takeaway from all of my conversations was this… If you aren’t adding value to your ecommerce business, then you probably aren’t going to be around in the next few years. I’ve alluded to this already in my post on The Dangers Of Selling On Amazon And Horror Stories From Real Amazon Sellers and here’s what I’m seeing. Right now Amazon is getting flooded with a bunch of me too products. People are...

ShippingEasy Vs Stamps.com – Why We Switched Our Shipping Software And How It Improved Our Order Flow

One of my biggest pet peeves with product reviews found on the Internet are that they are often written by people who have never used the product or service. And most online reviews lack any sort of depth whatsoever. For example, when I was looking for objective reviews on shipping services for ecommerce, all I found were glorified feature comparisons between the different companies. Not very useful! Anyway, my wife and I were recently in the market for a new shipping service for our online store and we ended up switching over from Stamps.com to ShippingEasy.com. If you just happen...
