Why I Just Deleted 12,499 Email Subscribers And You Should Too

I just deleted 12,499 people off my email newsletter.

Yep!

If you know anything about email marketing, you know that’s somewhat like lopping off your left arm.

I spent a lot of time and money attracting those 12,000 people.

In fact, I’ve been hemming and hawing around about it for the last few months because it’s such a big thing to me.

But, I had to do it.

Why?

Dead weight.

Of those 12,499 people, exactly ZERO had opened any of my emails in the last 6 months. I know. Makes you wanna cry for ol’ JMO.

But don’t.

I actually feel relieved. Because of WHO’S LEFT!

I know THEY are serious.

And, that’s who I want to work with.

This is an important lesson for you. Not every client or job is right for you. Some will be an enormous pain in your butt… and not worth the time.

You have to be willing to let them go.

Bye Felicia!

As the kids say.

If you don’t, they’ll drag you down, make you miserable and cost you tons of time and dineros. Let ’em go.

Find your niche and focus on the people you can help most.

Your “tribe”.

And, that’s why knowing what your niche is so important. Critical for making the big bucks and being happy doing what you do.

In this month’s Patreon-only ecourse, I give you my 3-step method for find your niche. And it works every time.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John is one of the best instructors I have come across, I learned a lot from his online tutorials.
