Internet Marketing Expert And Balanced Lifestyle
#1
http://internetmarketingsingapore.com/blog/


If you are into internet marketing, you have to explore the lifestyle that
is the envy of every person on the planet: jetsetting, having vacation after
vacation, while money rolls in on automatic pilot. However, this comes with a price,
and whether you realize it or not, burnout may be on your cards.



You may or may not be an internet marketing expert. Perhaps you are striving to be
one. No matter where you go, we live on 24 hours a day, and even if you are a super
internet marketer, there's always a limit to what you can do with the time you have.


There are three major categories of internet marketers. The first, is the
super-hardworking sort. You are the kind that works literally 16 hour days as if
this were a job you could be fired from. Unfortunately, you overwork, and you burn
out quickly. Your family complains about your lifestyle. You don't have balance.


The second is the one that ding-dongs from hard work to no work. You churn out
content, then you sell them, make your money, then go on vacation. You are the
epitome of active income, because without activity, you have no income.


The final one which is by far the smartest, is the one that builds residual income
streams. By this, I mean building an income stream that works without you. If you
haven't learnt how to build income streams, you probably aren't really able to build
much residual ones. However, this should be your primary concern, because you will
have to work hard once and then forget about it.


Jay Conrad Levinson, the father of Guerilla Marketing, leads an extremely balanced
life. He works hard for three days of the week and takes the rest off to enjoy what
the world has for him. If you are someone who desires this kind of life, you will
definitely need to stop thinking of yourself as the hard working guru. It's a matter
of principle. You have more responsibility than simply just making money. You have
family and health to care for.


The balanced lifestyle has only two basic elements. The first is personal alignment
and the second is goal awareness. Personal alignment is in doing something that fits
in with our purpose and being. If you are not aligned, you'd be extremely stressed.
Sometimes, you might think you are aligned, but you might be shocked that I'd say
you could be addicted. Being addicted and being passionate with what you do are two
very different things, and it isn't easy to identify. What you must realize is that
if you are addicted to it, it could spell disaster for your well-being eventually.


The second is goal awareness. You will need to be more aware of your desires, and
things that require your attention. Do you need to build a better relationship with
your spouse? Your children? How about your health - mental, spiritual and physical?
Considering these goals and being aware of how you can dovetail these with your
limited time schedule, you will begin to realize how much more you can achieve even
within the same span of time. Dovetailing is a process of seeing two things and
achieving it as though it were one goal. Don't just do internet marketing and become
an internet marketing expert. Be the father who dotes on his family while you are an
expert. Don't just be a millionaire. Be a millionaire that shares with the world.

Very nicely put.

I always believe it's more fun to make money when I'm sleeping so I can enjoy doing whatever I want to do when I'm awake Big Grin

Haha. Well put Biz. To excel in internet marketing you really have to be committed on the 24 hours a day, seven days a week scale but it pays off because you really are your own boss and have a level of freedom that you don't get with many other jobs. It's not for everyone but I love working in this field.

Very well said Pauljun Wink Right, we have to balance our life and career and it is really up to us to set our priorities. Perhaps arrange your schedule and commitments in order to accommodate family needs.

Prioritizing is everything. I think it's very manageable to do internet work and still be able to have a life but it's just a manner of being able to set yourself hours and stick to them, knowing when to turn off your work and relax for the rest of the day or attend to things that you need to.

People forget that it takes a lot of work to be self employed. To get to the point where your income is almost on auto-pilot, you need to put in many years. The commitment to the business is 24/7.

Be prepared to have fewer times when you can make progress while sleeping!

That's very true but I think that part of getting started up is knowing when to turn off your work and be able to get some mental and physical relaxation. Otherwise self-employed workers can get overwhelmed very quickly and the overworking almost ends up defeating itself because it's harder to produce or maintaining quality while running on empty.

If that is the case, then one never strive to get a business running on its own inertia. If you organize your day, and make sure work ends at a reasonable time, you are more likely to see long term success.

That's pretty much what I was saying. Sorry, I'm not trying to argue and I think we both have essentially the same idea but it's getting muddled up! I completely agree that organizing your self-employment into a 'normal' work day is the best way to go about business though.
