#FtheHustle ~ Issue 01November 10, 2020 November 19, 2020 /
For Entrepreneurs Ready to Enjoy the Journey & Grow a Profitable Business
Welcome to the first issue of the #FtheHustle newsletter! 🥳
I am super excited to be bringing this to life. I came up with this phrase years ago and for one reason or another the timing wasn’t right.
Then recently when I was revisiting a few things for my brand it was like a ton of bricks hit me upside the head.
I knew exactly what to do with the phrase.
First, if you’re not sure what #FtheHustle is all about, I wrote a full post on what it means and why I think we need this now more than ever.
I’m a firm believer in hard work and mastery, but not at the expense of everything else in my life.
The best part about #FtheHustle is that you can still create what you want, without burning yourself out.
Without further ado, let’s jump into it!
A little Brainpower 🧠
It might seem a little contrary that in a newsletter titled #FtheHustle I’m sharing an article about getting more done in less time, but I am. It’s all about the “Flow state” state. Read “How to Get More Done in Less Time by Reaching Flow State.”
I used to have this phrase taped to my computer: “No is a complete sentence” … which was a completely foreign concept to me at the time. Have you ever wondered why we explain ourselves when we say “No” but never explain ourselves when we say “Yes?” Listen to “It’s O.K. to Say No” by Matt Davies on the Nurture Flow podcast.
Tool Time 🛠
I have to admit, I’m much better than I used to be about finding new tools and going down a crazy rabbit hole, but I still love my tools! I’ll share tools I’m using, have tried, or are being used by people I know.
First up is of course ConvertBox. The lifetime price for Convertbox is going up tomorrow (and I know I mentioned this yesterday, but this is seriously one of the best investments I’ve made in my business). Get ConvertBox for all your lead generation here.
-Add in a little social proof with Wisernotify! We’ve used a social proof plugin on Content Creators Planner and holy moly does it work! You can use it for purchases, opt-ins, registrations, you name it. You can get WiserNotify as a lifetime deal on AppSumo here.
For Your Viewing Pleasure 📹
I hadn’t ever heard of this term before, but my friend Jimmy Rose created a short video about increasing motivation and productivity with a “mental deload week” (I guess it’s a common term in weight lifting). I don’t know about you, but every time I take time for me I have a renewed energy for my business. Watch how to “deload” with Jimmy Rose here.
Goals vs. Intentions
This video really resonates with me… and is in complete alignment with the #FtheHustle movement (yep, I’ve decided it’s a movement). Trevor Blake, who grew 3 companies working from home 5 hours a day (and then sold them for $600 million), says goal setting as we know it is dead.
Watch “What is the Difference Between Goal Setting and Intention Setting?” here.
Because we all need more books 📕
Ryan Daniel Moran is the founder of Capitalism.com and has recently published his book called “12 Months to $1 Million: How to Pick a Winning Product, Build a Real Business, and Become a Seven-Figure Entrepreneur.” Now, before you think this is a cheesy internet marketing gimmick, it’s not. Full of insights and stories on finding physical products, building an e-commerce company, and growing a brand. Definitely worth reading.
The Alchemist, a novel for entrepreneurs (err, fable).
One of my favorite books and one I recommend frequently (to anyone). The journey to what we think we want and our purpose aren’t always the same. This novel is about self-discovery and following your dreams. Get The Alchemist here.
My new favorite word 🤣
A little laughter goes a long way!
Well, there you have it!
The first issue is officially out. I’d LOVE to hear from you… what you liked, what you want more of, and if you have something you think would be of value, let me know!
I’ll be pulling content from the Content Creators Facebook Group so if you haven’t joined, hop on over and join the Facebook group here.
Next week and moving forward the newsletter will be sent out every Thursday.
Have a great weekend my friends,
p.s. if you need an extra little pick-me-up, here’s Chris Hemsworth (aka Thor), telling you how amazing you are 😉.
