Too much work to do? Then maybe clearing the desks is the answer!
Last Update: Apr 8, 2014
I have been here at WA for almost 2 and half years and in that time I haven't really hit success. I have had loads of small milestones like the first page on Google, the first no One spot on Google, the first sale on Amazon, the first sale on clickbank etc.
These have all been great and I had loads of sales on my eBay shop which I used to fund my online business so all was going forward. However I seemed to stall towards the end of 2013 the sites weren't growing and in fact I was slipping in ranking.
I was torn into five directions by the projects I had going. I had the eBay shop, an ekmpowershop, my fishing blog, a review blog and my bootcamp. 5 projects and I still had my day job and family life to squeeze in.
I was feeling the pressure so I had to make some decisions. I closed the ekmpowershop in favor of the eBay shop as sales were better and the review blog was closed. I could after all put them on my fishing blog anyway.
So I am down to 3 projects from 5. Some may say I should go further and drop the bootcamp to concentrate on the fishing blog and eBay shop and I may do that but for now I will keep it in place to see what happens.
I have put more time into my remaining projects and have seen the blog move back up in ranking and start to make some sales again. The eBay shop is steadily increasing too but as we are now moving into fishing season again I would have expected that anyway but I feel the extra work has helped and I feel more relaxed on my work loads.
What I would say to you is when starting out don't get carried away with too many things. The distraction will hamper your progress and cause you to stumble. I am just glad I cleared the desks before it was too late and I burned out trying to juggle all that work. :)
