I get a lot of questions about which tools and services I use to run my online business. Some of these are free and some cost money. In this post we are going to focus on the latter.
Before I breakdown the last 30 days expenses for you I think it’s helpful to look at people’s attitudes to spending money and investing in their business.
In my experience, there are 3 main types of people I have spoken to:
1. People who are just starting out and are extremely reluctant to spend anything whatsoever.
2. People who are very reluctant to invest in essentials like an email marketing service (e.g., Aweber) but ironically have spent thousands on training products which have resulted in zero income (because they are “biz-op junkies” and/or don’t see things through).
3. People who understand that sensible investment is required for any business. And the costs involved in starting an online business are tiny in relation to virtually any other type of business you can think of.
I’d encourage you to have a think about which category YOU fall into (more on that later).
