It is easy to sit on your laurels and put off those things that you need to do in your business. Money isn’t enough when it gets hard in your business, and money alone will not help you kick into high gear. It’s not enough to motivate you and keep you moving through those hard tasks or encourage you to learn new skills. If you are not doing what you need to do, then you could be on the road to going broke.


Today, we discuss why starting an Amazon business just for the money is often not enough to keep you motivated for the long haul. We share the reasons why we tend to procrastinate and put off the things that we find hard but still need to do. We reveal how you can get out of the circle of putting things off and why you should spend time figuring out what motivates you to keep going. We also share the action steps you can take to motivate yourself to tackle those hard tasks.
