11 seconds to brutal touchdown

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

Last week, I wrote about my second parachute jump in an ebook. I jumped from 600 meters up, and my proofreader changed it to 4,000 meters.

I asked him why.

He said that he thought 600 meters sounded a bit low, so he checked and found that the norm was 4,000 meters.

The thing is that I didn’t have a free fall first. My parachute had a string that was attached to the airplane, so that the parachute was automatically drawn out. But when I talked with my husband about it yesterday, he said, “600 meters is kind of low. What if something went wrong?”

I told him that we were trained in every possible situation.

“But still…”

He checked how long it would take a body to hit the ground from 600 meters. A little more than 11 seconds.

“And you use the first three waiting for the parachute to unfold, right?”

Correct.

“Then you look up, and if something is wrong, you have… what? One or two seconds to react?”

True. It didn’t leave us many seconds to think about what to do. Kind of forced us to make snap decisions, right? Or we would end up becoming what was known at the club as “parachute pizza”.

Ugh.

Luckily, not every decision is about life and death, but the faster you can make them, the better your business will work.

Here’s how to make snap decisions http://malka.biz/2-minute-decisions/

Are you wasting your time?

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

If you’d been Jeff Bezos would you have given up your dream, when Amazon’s result was still in the red?

Most people probably would. But Jeff Bezos must have believed so much in his project that he stayed put.

Luckily, we don’t have the same big problems. But small problems can drag you down and drain your energy as well.

Like that blog of yours… Will it take off one day, or is it a waste of time?

The product you’re planning… Will it make you money, or are you wasting your time?

There are no certain answers. There are proven roads to follow, but even that doesn’t mean 100% certainty.

Making faster and more confident decisions will not only save you time but also make you more money.

Why? Because you’ll get more things accomplished instead of leaving them unfinished or unstarted.

And you’ll get better at weeding out the timewasters before they drain you of energy and money.

Your hand forced

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

Have you ever waited in line in a supermarket?

The line snakes towards the cashier, and you wonder if you should switch to the other line or stay.

You can’t decide… The other one seemed to have stopped, but this one approaches slowly.

Then, the moment you find out that five of the persons in the other line were together, and if you’d switched, it would have been your turn now, a woman with a cart filled with groceries steps up to the cashier.

Your hand is forced. You missed your chance to make a decision.

This is only an example where you could have saved time. But “in real life”, in your business, making faster and more confident decisions will not only save you time.

You could also be making more money, because you’ll get more things accomplished instead of leaving them unfinished.

Or not even started.

What separates winners from losers?

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

Okay, to be honest, it’s not fair to call anyone a loser, but I couldn’t fit a whole psychological thesis into the subject line 😀

Somebody who loses is not a loser. He’s somebody who’s lost something.

Sometimes, a person loses so many times that he’ll begin to think of himself as a loser.

A lot of it is in the mind. Somebody who keeps losing will begin to expect his next attempt to fail.

What’s the solution to that?

Turn the wheel around. Drive in a different direction. Begin to experience wins instead of losses.

One thing that winning people do differently than losing people is taking fast decisions.

They don’t linger for days, weeks or months, waiting to get every last detail before they decide.

No, they look at what they know, they realize that they cannot know everything about a choice, and then they take a snap decision.

That’s something you can learn to do, actually.

Friend got laid off – guess my reply

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

Yesterday, I received an email from an online friend, fellow marketer and writer Chris.

He told me among other things that he’d gotten laid off.

Can you guess what I told him? One word.

Congratulations.

Why?

Who said, ‘because I’m a mean old witch?’

Yeah, that too, but no. Rather than seeing this as a disaster, I see it as a chance. A chance to get serious about business and work for himself instead of for some random man.

The same thing happened to another friend last year. He’d been trying (trying) to make money online since 2010, and only when he received that pink slip did he really do something and succeed.

(It surely helped that he got one of my courses, too, hehe, but I can only tell people what to do, I can’t force them to do it, so all honor for getting started goes to him.)

Why am I babbling about all this?

Because I want to know what you would do if you got fired. Do you have a plan?

Or is there anything I could help you with?

How little work can you get away with?

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

You know what?

I quit my day-job in 1995. While I had a job, I worked 5 hours per day, 4 days a week.

After I quit, I worked from early morning and until 2-3 am the following day. Seven days a week.

See something wrong with that picture?

It took me quite some time to figure it out, but the less I worked in my business, the more focused I got.

How little time can you put into your business and still make an income?

You need to spend at least 30 minutes per day. Five or six days a week. That’s my estimate. But you have to be focused and have a plan.

Don’t have a plan yet?

Would $100K per month change your life?

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

One of my Facebook friends asked a similar question:

What would you do different if you made $100,000 per month in your business?

My life wouldn’t change much. I would definitely get the house on the beach, and certainly hire someone to clean the house, but other than that?

Nothing really.

Both my husband and I make enough so we don’t have to worry about bills or paying the rent and stuff. We don’t have any financial worries. We’re free to do what we want and we can wake up by ourselves, not using an alarm, every morning.

That’s life, isn’t it?

To me it is, at least.

How do you get to that point?

You can follow a plan. Follow a guide from someone who’s done that. And to help you get there, I have an interview with an Internet millionaire that I can share.

His advice is sound, and I’ve listened to it several times already.

Listen to this

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

You can learn a lot from studying what successful people do.

Some advice comes free. Like you sign up to join somebody’s list, and you study how he writes his mails, which products he promotes, stuff like that.

I do that a lot. Well, almost. I don’t just join a list to get a freebie. Those are mostly not worth my time. But I do follow marketers after I’ve bought products from them.

Some are boring, others are inspiring. And of course, I’ll buy more from the inspiring ones to learn more.

This has taught me a lot, and given me several good laughs, too, for example:

  • When a marketer promotes a product he clearly doesn’t use himself (like an autoresponder).
  • When several marketers use the same swipe mail, given by the vendor, and even mail out the same typo.

It has also taught me that you can’t reverse engineer everything. Sometimes you need to hear it from the vendor himself to learn what thoughts lie behind his decisions.

When you can get your hands on stuff like that, it’s worth listening to.

That’s why it makes me proud to be able to present the “150K Millionaire Audio Files”. These are recordings made by a famous marketer. I am not allowed to reveal his name, but his first name is Eric (he says so himself in the audio), and his second name sounds almost like a famous French museum that holds the original Mona Lisa painting.

Can you learn from him? I know that I did, and the funny thing is that every time I listen to these files (I’ve done it five times already) I learn something new.

I have to boast of my son

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

When my children were small, I went through a tough divorce. In short, I fled my house, scared that my ex would kill my children.

My son was three years old, and all that happened during that period changed him from being a happy little child to a shy kid, who didn’t even dare to use a toilet in front of him on a ferry, if I didn’t go with him.

Fast forward till today, and he’s an office manager with more than 100 employees, AND – totally unrelated – he just participated in a new commercial.

The commercial is about a cake called “rozalach”, and the coffee chain Landwer has made different versions of it inspired by different countries’ food culture.

My son, who was born in Denmark, represents the Swiss version (oh, well, they are probably blond and blue-eyed there, too). I’m mighty proud of him. He’s come a long way, and he’s a very confident young man now.

You can see the video here: https://youtu.be/w4fefV3i8rY

Speaking of confidence…

What makes your legs wobble when it comes to making money online?

Hit reply and let me know what scares you, and what (if anything) you do about it.

More time when you quit work? Ha!

By Britt Malka | Daily Emails

If there’s one thing most entrepreneurs (and writers) have discovered, it’s this:

More time doesn’t equal higher productivity.

If you’re stealing a minute here and there now, working full time in a job, and with a huge wish and intention of changing that, you might be in for a bad surprise:

Unless you do something about it, you’ll waste a lot of time daily.

That’s what happened to me. Being “busy” from 7am to 2-3 in the morning… and still didn’t have much to show for it.

Things changed when I discovered ways to get more productive, and I share them in my “Work from Home Rescue Kit”.

Take a look here. It could be your life-safer http://malka.biz/im-work-from-home-rescue-kit/
