Essential advice for Newbies

This morning I followed a link in an email from Liz Tomey (for those who don’t know Liz, she is a very successful internet marketer).

Liz TomeyThe post was on her site The Biz Model Guru’s Secrets and is titled How To Keep The Techy Stuff From Killing Your Online Biz Success!

This post is excellent advice; Liz says:

I have seen a lot of people never become successful with their own online business for one very easy to overcome problem……

People looking to start an online business need skills such as product creation, copywriting, being able to build simple websites to sell their products from, how to install and use a blog, and several other technical skills.

When people start seeing all these skills they start getting confused, start trying to learn everything at once, and they end up buying everything under the sun to help them but become a casualty of information overload.

They never get any further than where they got stuck and never see the fruits from their labor…..

This post is worth reading, even if you are not a newbie but are not succeeding as well as you hope to. Here is the link    http://bizmodelguru.com/how-to-keep-the-techy-stuff-from-killing-your-online-biz-success/

Lifelong learning is based on an attitude of constantly growing and evolving in various areas of your life. The old saying that whenever anything is not growing it is decaying could be just as true for us as humans. No matter what a person’s age there are great benefits to be gained by challenging yourself in the different areas of your life, physical, mental and self-deveopment.

Physical challenges must be appropriate for your level of fitness, but regular exercise of some kind will leep your body healthier and your brain healthier too. Mental challenges do not have to be academic study, they can be a new hobby or interest, a new caring or chrity venture, more involvement with family. The most growth in personal development will come when you take on something that is currently outside your comfort zone (nasty words those, aren’t they? How we love to stay in our comfort zone, even when it isn’t all that comfortable really).

Lifelong learners live by the motto “you’re never too old to learn” and this attitude is a big part of the reason that people who approach life with this mindset are seen to perhaps live longer but definitely enjoy a better quality of life – is the so-called law of nature known as the “use it or lose it” true?

It does seem to be the case that those who are considerably inactive develop mobility problems as they age, whereas those who are quite active do not develop these mobility problems. A similar effect takes place with anyone who takes no part in any mentally challenging activity or pursuit. After years of mental inactivity
