Goals vs Milestones

Morr Meroz Entrepreneurship, Productivity

I hear a lot of talk about setting goals. I’ve also heard people define a yearly plan for their business with certain goals such as “reaching 5000 email subscribers before the end of the year” or “10% increase of traffic every month” and other such metrics. Setting up such goals is nice and all, but there’s one problem with doing …

Stop Being Embarrassed

Morr Meroz Entrepreneurship, Inspiration

Stop being embarrassed about pursuing your own thing. You feel like there’s a magnifying glass above you, created by your family and friends, but there isn’t one.

One of the things I like most about running an online business is how effective my time-for-money is. It’s similar to investing in real estate, only MUCH cheaper.
