What We Talk About

Have you been putting off building your email list? Maybe you think you’re too busy, or nobody will listen to you. In this episode, we break down 11 reasons you might not be building your email list (and then we’re going to talk about each one of them and WHY it’s #bullpucky.) We’ve been there, we’ve overcome that. And now we’re taking you into our psyche to help you overcome your list building fears too.

  • (8:32) Reason #2: Nobody wants to hear from me
  • (13:25) Reason #3: There’s already someone else who’s more successful.
  • (19:11) Reason #4: I can’t figure out the tech
  • (21:53) Reason #5: I don’t know where to start or what to teach
  • (23:10) Reason #6: I’m not a good writer.
  • (23:47) Reason #7: I don’t want to be on video.
  • (25:54) Reason #8: I don’t know who my audience is
  • (26:43) Reason #9: I don’t want to or know how to run Facebook ads
