It has been a while since I last put my thoughts down, it has been challenging to say the least.

New business opportunities have presented themselves this month, meetings, research and thought provoking decisions have zapped my time and energy.

Mindset shifts have also happened in recent days, the pressing need to advance forward has awakened my soul.

You will be seeing more writing on here than there is water in the sea.

I have decided that I need to document the journey in it’s full glory and leave nothing out.

That’s quite a scary thing to do, laying yourself…

It’s almost as if scattered brains and entrepreneurship go hand in hand.

Many entrepreneurs would argue that this is not the case, but others, like myself, did not start off with all it worked out.

When people first start their entrepreneurial adventure, they don’t know what to do, how to do it, or who to listen to, which leads to what I call scatterbrains.

A lot of people with ADHD have this dilemma as well, with the exception that ADHDers have a much harder time controlling their scattered brain.

It can be quite daunting when you first begin your entrepreneurial…

There I said it, making money online doesn’t have to be hard.

The gurus would like you to think otherwise by manipulating data to suit their own theories.

I suspect by doing that they can get you hooked in, or maybe they genuinely believe that it is hard.

It’s not it can just take time.

Yes, some people will come into the online space and start producing results out of nowhere and make it seem like that’s the norm or that if you follow their footsteps you will have the same results.

Unfortunately, the world isn’t like that but fortunately…

Physical freebies always fun there’s just something about something that’s physical like you can hold in your hand that attracts a deeper sense of meaning than something digital.

And today I received a package through my door which was a freebie for being one of the first to take action on brand new website

This website is brand new on the scene and it’s the software that’s responsible for me getting out of my own way and creating a simple script based off somebody else’s script to book guests on to my podcast and reach out to them.


The answer is quite simple.

I am all about streamlining systems and processes.

You know making it easier for me or anyone to produce content for a variety of platforms without being overwhelmed.

Using my website to create and host my blog felt like a chore rather than a delight.

This maybe because I am not really a blogger at all and such never really got into it.

However, the fact still remains that I started my blog on my website MichaelEllisOnline Jan 2021 but have only published 2 posts in blog form.

Clearly using my website wasn’t working out…

It’s dependent on so many factors, like your business goals, audience, platform and what you are wanting to achieve with your content.

That’s going to be different for every business out there.

For example, a bespoke cake company, that has chosen to focus on only Instagram for content marketing most likely will only spend 10–30 minutes per day.

Taking a series of photos of the bake-off and completion photos as well as behind the scenes story reels.

Quick, efficient and simple but will have a great ROE (Return On Effort) if executed correctly.
