How to Kickstart Online Business Success When You Stop “Learning”

As online entrepreneurs, we sit down every day to work in front of what I not-so-affectionately call a “Distraction Box.”

When else in human history have we been expected to do productive work by using the exact same device that also provides entertainment, connection with loved ones, and irresistible distractions at every turn?

Give yourself a break: it’s not easy! For any of us — me included.

But I’m here to report that:

Productive days and weeks are possible — even when your productive work happens on a “Distraction Box.”

Ready?

5 Ways to Make a Genuine Connection with Your Virtual Community

You’re a good person. I’m a good person.

But how do we know that about one another?

How can you build trust across the virtual divide that separates us?

If you can’t reliably connect with the prospects you want to reach, you don’t have much hope of building a profitable online business.

Over the years when I’ve met readers for the first time, they’ve said, “I feel like I know you!”

That reaction happens because somehow my work at Big Brand System has connected with them.

Genuine connection in the virtual environment takes time. It’s not simple or easy.

But it’s a worthy goal.

Here’s how to make community connection happen …
