I have a buddy, who I’ve known for 40 of my 43 years on earth. We grew up together, obviously, and have remained very good friends all this time.
He is a home renovator and general contractor.
I am a weird writer-type.
VERY different ways of making a livelihood.
He is always on his feet.
I am always sitting at a desk with keyboard or pen in my hands.
…hence the problem.
Sitting at a desk is a very bad thing for your health.
It causes excess weight to be put on.
And it can KILL your back.
For many, many years I have had a bad back.
Only made worse by the computer.
I do my Tae Kwon Do 4 days a week for cardio, and I walk my dog and marketing assistant, Casino, 7 days a week.
But one of the best things I ever did was get an exercise ball to use as a chair.
My back feels 100 times better. It seems to definitely help strengthen the core muscles in the body and tighten up that softening middle which was partially created by sitting for so long.
The best part of the exercise ball?
I can sit down at the computer, crank out copy all day long, and get mini-workouts throughout the day. I move it side to side, back and forth, and bounce a little up and down when needing to get the juices flowing.
Getting exercise while making money is a wonderful thing.
10 years (in March) I have been working on my craft… and it is the most enjoyable thing I have ever done.
It’s like therapy… but without the psychiatrist.
I highly recommend you get yourself a really good chair… the large exercise balls work great (except they can roll away on you when you get up… which is a minor, minor problem to have while living a life you love).
And I recommend you get REAL GOOD at writing emails.
And sales copy.
You master those skills and you will never again wonder what you need to do to make more moola, nor will you ever be at a lack for marketing ideas.
The Story Selling Home Study Coaching program http://www.storysellingtips.com should be ready by Friday and is an incredible way to introduce your clients and prospects to your backstories… where your real money will be made.
Your back and your bank account will thank you.
