Starting an online business can be an intimidating thing. So many options, but where do you start? That’s what today’s video is all about…getting started in a sea of options.


Loren Carlson is starting an online business (way to go, Loren!) but he doesn’t know where to start. Here’s what he wrote recently:

I have extensive personal back ground with Depression. I see a lack of easily accessed support for those that are FIGHTING it. I want to ultimately have a brand that is multimedia (books, video, audio, blog, tele/web/seminars, etc.) and culminates in workgroups, keynote speaking and possibly personal coaching.

Help from one who has been there and has the education to synthesize the various treatments available.

I’m at the starting gate, new to social media, web sites, e-mail list (you get it), but not computer illiterate. I’m interested in using affiliate income as a humble starting point, and build strategic relationships through it as well.

I’m sponging up everything I see/hear/read that I believe will help me along the way.

Can you relate to Loren? If so, watch this video.

‘When it comes to social media, if you are everywhere, you are nowhere.’

How do you maintain focus with so many options?

    Love that advice. I also like to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. So if competitors are ditching FB and heading to Snapchat, I’ll double down on FB. We marketers like to be early adopters but we forget that our followers are just that – BEHIND US. They may not be eager to switch platforms. I don’t need a million people. I need a few thousand (or even just a few hundred!)

    PS bad news – no more Blab. 🙁

      I know…that sucks about Blab.

      Good point about sticking with something if people are ditching. Never really thought of that.
