I'm fighting fires

but still popping in today

Ever start working on something ambitious only to have obstacle after obstacle thrown into your path?

It’s nearly impossible to build a treehouse if you’re busy putting out fires that threaten to burn down the tree.

I know I’m not the only one, but boy is it annoying.

Today I wanted to let you in on some of the things coming soon, and then I’m off to man the fire hose for a couple more days:

Have you ever wondered how I operate and make money with Email Magic? It’s a different animal than what I help some of you with in the eCom world…

I’m still under 2000 subscribers, but here’s how I did last month:

The Email Magic ecosystem is more than just the emails you see. I don’t really talk about the front end or back end of this business much…but it’s the secret sauce that makes everything work.

I’d like to double this number once or twice before the end of the year without hiring a bunch of team members or working 80 hours per week.

You’ll get a glimpse into how I intend to do that in the next section…

Should I share more about what I’m doing? You tell me.

Last week I raised the price of my Premium membership. For those of you who got in at the old rates, congrats. This next bit might make you have heart palpitations.

In the past, I did not do a great job of explaining the extra features that come with a Premium membership.

I’d like to explain that to everyone today:

Free Newsletter (what you’re reading right now)

Sent between 2-6 times per week, sharing my knowledge and lessons learned from scaling multiple businesses to 6 and 7 figures of annual revenue.

Expect to see a combination of ad placements, affiliate offers, and sales messages from yours truly on the regular.

I give away a lot for free, but I ain’t running a charity here (see below).

Premium Tier 1 - The Vault

Get access to ALL of my paid content and courses normally sold for $100 or less.

Once or twice per month, I create a resource, training, workshop or mini-course priced at $100 or less and offer it through the Free Newsletter. By subscribing to The Vault, you will get access to ALL of the $100 or less paid resources I’ve created.

The cost is $99 per month.

I am exploring platform options to do a better job of hosting the content in a single, easy-to-access place. I currently have an account with Podia but don’t love it.

Options include Kajabi, GHL, or stick with Podia. If you have any suggestions or insight, please share.

Premium Tier 2 - Mail Mages

Get access to ALL Vault content above, PLUS monthly live trainings with guest experts and Ask Me Anything group calls with me.

I have long-term 1 on 1 coaching and consulting clients who pay between $500 - $1000 per hour of my time, and clients who have given me equity in their 7-figure business for regular meetings.

That being the case, this level of access to me is an incredible value at $290 per month.

The Beehiiv Mastermind

Several of you signed up to Beehiiv through my affiliate link, and I have promised to meet with you regularly to strategize.

This offer is now closed.

Those of you who made it in, this will kick off next month. Keep an eye out for details.

Finally, for those of you in the middle of something difficult, it’s important to remember that you’re not alone and it’s all part of the game.

Personally, I’m dealing with another business venture that’s slowly circling the drain, sucking money, time, and energy out of me as it sinks…

…and after that problem is solved or situation is dealt with, another “emergency” will inevitably pop up.

It’s important to keep perspective through the ups and downs, or you risk being drowned by the waves.

(Maybe there’s a training I should create about this.)

I’m not selling you anything today.

But if any of this strikes your fancy and you want to rap about it, hit reply and let me know.

Have a good one,
