Keeping Clear Focus

Congradulations on starting your journey READER. You finally picked your niche, decided to upgrade to make the most of your business.

Hello and Welcome from Michael The Traveling Trucker. Here are some tips for you to use daily to stay focused.


Evaluate How Mentally Focused You Are. How strong is your mental focus at the present moment? Your Focus Is Good If… You find it easy to stay alert. You set goals and break tasks up into smaller parts. You take short breaks, then get back to work.

Your Focus Needs Work If… You daydream regularly. You can’t tune out distractions. You lose track of your progress. Let me say here, we ALL get distracted from time to time. Learning to focus takes practice. You can and will learn this valuable lesson so give it time to master.

To improve focus and productivity, build healthy habits like getting enough sleep and exercise. Multitasking and social media can cause distractions during work, so it’s best to limit them. Breaks are important to stay focused — try a time-blocking technique like the (pomodoro method).

So what is the Pomodoro Technique? Pomorodo is tomato in italian. The secret to effective time management is…thinking in tomatoes rather than hours? I know this sounds crazy, just keep reading. This popular time management method asks you to alternate pomodoros — focused work sessions — with frequent short breaks to promote sustained concentration and stave off mental fatigue. Thinking in TOMATOES is way more fun than thinking in hours.

1st- pick a task-2nd-set a timer for 25 minutes-3rd- work on your task until the timer buzzes 4th-Take a 5 minute break 5th-For every 4 pomodoro take longer breaks 15-30 minute breaks.

What is the Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique was developed in the late 1980s by then university student Francesco Cirillo. Cirillo was struggling to focus on his studies and complete assignments. Feeling overwhelmed, he asked himself to commit to just 10 minutes of focused study time. Encouraged by the challenge, he found a tomato (pomodoro in Italian) shaped kitchen timer, and the Pomodoro technique was born.


If the saying “practice makes perfect” is true, then meditation is a sure way to enhance focus because it takes a great deal of concentration.

Exercise regularly

Exercises like swimming, running, walking, yoga. You get the picture, right?” DO SOMETHING EACH DAY.

Establish a to-do list

To-do lists not only help you prioritize what tasks you need to get done first, but they can also serve as a record of the loose ends.

Try a small amount of caffeine

If you’re feeling groggy, grab a CUP OF JOE or something with caffeine.  Studies suggest that caffeine may, in moderate doses, help to boost focus — particularly in those of us who are fatigued.

Get away from screens during breaks

Not all breaks are created equal. If your pomodoro work sessions happen on your computer, don’t just switch over to Twitter or Instagram when the timer goes off. Give your eyes and brain a break from screens — that means your phone too! Stand up, move around, stretch, go outside, do a mini meditation, grab a snack, watch birds out the window. If you work from home, fold some clothes or clear off the kitchen table.

Now you are armed and ready to get your tasks done in a timely manner.


Mistakes Help You Grow

Have you ever hit your thumb with a hammer? Learning to hit the metal nail instead of your ( human ) nail is important , right?

“What great thing would you attempt, if you knew you could not fail?”

— Robert H. Schuller


So READER, what would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? What would your life look like? Would it look the same as it does today? If not, how far off from that vision are you?

All too often, fear holds us back from pursuing the things we’d like to be doing. For those trying to build a freelance writing career, affiliate marketing, SEO, Blogging, fear can show up as insecurity, a feeling dread or imposter syndrome, procrastination, lack of confidence, and analysis paralysis, to name a few manifestations.

Fear also impacts goal setting, because when you operate from fear, you may make choices based on the wrong things. Or worse, be afraid to make choices at all. Be strong and courageous. I’ll stick by you and help you grow.]

You need to get past any obstacles and take action to move forward. Identifying your mistakes and knowing how to correct them is all of our goals, RIGHT?

Even though fear may never completely disappear, you’ll learn you CAN make it through. Take a deep breath, NOW. Every time you overcome fear, you’ll gain more confidence … and become even braver … ( SUPERMAN OR WOMEN) willing to tackle bigger and better things … ultimately getting you to a life much richer than you ever imagined. Life is to short to spend worrying about things that might not happen at all. Spend time making YOUR life better.

If you want to go where the BIG money is…

If you want to truly “future-proof” your career and have peace of mind that you’ll always command a high-income (goal) right?

There’s one skill you do need to learn ASAP.

So What Is This Lucrative Skill?

Simple:It’s knowing how to create a content marketing strategy. When it comes to digital marketing, literally ALL of it is driven by content. Got a TikTok, linkedin, or twitter video ad that goes to a sales page? That’s content.

So where do you start? AUDIENCE: No matter what you’re selling — whether it’s your own services, software, or a physical product — you’ve got to know WHO your ideal prospect is. Intimately know the person you want to move to action.

Offer: It becomes infinitely easier to know WHAT to offer them in terms of a solution, whether it’s in the form of a product or service. In my business, I have both. Products and services. Check This Out.

COPY: You might start with a free video the prospect finds on YouTube, which then links to downloading a free lead magnet, which then in turn leads to an email sequence that leads to the sales page. All of these are important, but you MUST know your audience. Get to know them. See what strengths and weaknesses they have and help them SOLVE them.

Because no matter what niche you go into… no matter what industry… this “Audience, Offer, Copy” trifecta remains the same. Remember, It’s about learning, TAKING ACTION and helping your people do the same.

KNOW, LIKE TRUST Is The Name Of The Game

Slavery’s Chains

You can hear the hammer coming down on the hot metal resting on the anvil. The bolt driving down to lock the cuffs in place. Not a sound was uttered as the cuffs find their resting place.


Michael The Traveling Trucker asks- how long have you been wearing those chains? You are told what time to wake up each day. What time you can eat. What your work for the day is. What time you can leave to go back to your cell.

Does this sound like your life as you prepare for work each day? If your boss needs you to stay late or work weekends, can you say NO?

Very few people find the key to unlock those chains, but there to be found. You really do have the tools to make your key and escape those chains, if your willing.

Take a walk with me, READER. Lets explore those tools together and make a key. What do you say? Life on your terms or life on your bosses terms, Your choice.

1st- Do you want to escape your job? Can you see yourself telling you boss, ” I don’t need to work here anymore”. All the hard work you have been putting into building your home based business finally paid off big. TIME FOR A CHANGE.

You have followed the done- for -you- system, step by step. You have listened to your coach and mentor to write your blog, buy advertising from the co-op. You have dailed the phone and talked to your prospects. Building those relationships. You love making your Youtube videos.

People are trusting your lead. Doesn’t it feel GREAT? Being in the right niche is very important.

Have you thought about writing your book is the next question from your coach. All the hard work you have spent after the children go to bed and before they get up in the morning is putting thousands in your pocket each month looks and feels good doesn’t?

I see that great BIG SMILE. It’s burning down into your spirit and you will never go back. NEVER.

Your coach asked- have you thought about interviewing your favorite mentors and coaches? Are you ready to teach what you know to others in a webinar?

I know for some it sounds scary and far off. It was for me. Little by little, I took those steps. Doing what was uncomfortable until it became easy and part of my daily business money making activities. COME JOIN US NOW.

I offer you the chance to change. Reach out your hand and I’ll walk with you each day until you can stand and walk by yourself. Sound fair?

Freedom Is One Step Away

No Experience NEEDED

When I first started, I was thankful for the term No Experience Needed because I didn’t have any. Michael The Traveling Trucker was a ordinary person who had the desire to drive a BIG RIG.


I drove from Georgia to California every week for a year to get some experience,4500 miles per week. Now It’s 28 years later with well over 3 million miles under my belt.

7 years ago I started my journey with affiliate marketing with- you guessed it “No Experience Needed”. I had a desire to learn and implement what was being taught. In the Coaching world, did you know that a coach does NOT need to know their clients industry? Coaching is simply a system of questions to ask your clients.

First hand I know 3 people who have mastered the task of asking the right questions to help people achieve the wildest dreams. Janet Legere and Rob Gehring and Jared Myers.

I have had the opportunity to work with all 3. Each one has helped me grow more than I thought possible. Dear Reader, do you want your business to grow by leaps and bounds? Finding the right Coach/ Mentor is vital.

Can I coach someone if I don’t have experience? You bet you can. The coaches job is to simply ask the right questions that will help the client create success. Coaching with the RIGHT SYSTEM is about helping your client get a clear picture at where they are today-and where they want to be down the road, then take MASSIVE ACTION and holding them accountable.

Realizing ” how” you make money is VERY IMPORTANT. If you make a lot of money and don’t help anyone and have no joy.. is it really worth it? Making money is awesome and all, but I personally want to have purpose and fulfillment of helping others all along the way.

This brings a joy deep within my spirit. It drives me each day to help serve others. If you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want. There’s no ceiling to your earning potential. The more you invest in yourself to learn new skills and master them, the more money YOU will make.

Swimming Up Stream

You have decided to go your own way. You are not listening to the nay-sayers, family and friends who have watched you fail saying you can’t do it.

Michael The Traveling Trucker jumping into the deep, swimming strong against the current.

No one said that being successful in life is easy, and it certainly isn’t. Unfortunately, many people give up before they’ve even given themselves a chance to succeed. What’s the point of persevering if you just give up in the end?

Perseverance Is an Important Quality Because You Will Face Challenges in Life, and It’s a Skill That Will Pay Off.

Perseverance is the persistence in working on your goal despite facing many obstacles. It can also be defined as the act of working towards your dreams/goals despite delayed success.

People without options always persevere, because they have no place to fall back when things get tough. Many people, who persevered until they achieved their goals, often encouraged themselves. 

While persevering, you have to understand that it might take long before you achieve your goals. Therefore, you have to work on building patience so that you don’t become frustrated while working and waiting for the fruition of your goals.

Success on any level requires the ability to follow through, to execute a plan, to persevere … to stick with it. Researchers found those who persevere are more likely to achieve success than those who cannot or do not.

Keep your goal visible at all times … Keep your goal on your desk, in your wallet or purse, on your bathroom mirror, on your refrigerator. Prepare for two steps ahead. Balance your focus on the task at hand with preparation for the next step. This prevents complacency. Ask yourself, “What knowledge, skills, relationships, experiences do I need to develop to be prepared to succeed?” Write down your list. Check them off as you master them.

If you want to learn how to persevere, you should build a NETWORK OF SUPPORT. Building a network of support that includes family, friends, co-workers and peers will allow you to have a comfortable place to open up and get feedback and encouragement during hard times. Whenever something goes wrong, you can turn to your network of support and talk through what’s going on. This step is important. Make sure you have a group that will listen, assess your words, then challenge you.

In our busy schedules, we tend to get bored with the same old routine, and giving up becomes more tempting because there seem to be other things that are more fun instead of doing the same task over and over again. I’m one who doesn’t like the same old same old, but when I looked at my job, household, yard work, shopping–GUESS WHAT, I’m doing the same thing over and over.

Like doing this over and over. Click Here to find out why.

Take Small Steps But Not To Small Steps Each Day

Look Who’s Visiting

You completed you web pages. Got your site just rught. Now , how do you get people to your site?

Michael The Traveling Trucker brings a truck load of info for you to use.


Put your web address on everything you can

Your web address should be ubiquitous. It’s on your business cards, brochures,shirts, books, and anything that you can give away.

Brand Advertising

If there is anything small businesses tend to overlook, it’s the power of brand advertising.

Brand advertising focuses on making a memorable impression. It’s encapsulated in your business name, logo, and tagline. This is who you are to the world.

Social Media- Engage the right audience for your business

Build awareness. When people look to understand more about your brand, they turn to your profile or bio section. It should quickly communicate your brand value proposition while establishing your tone and style.

Use LinkedIn Pages and Sponsored Content to increase social engagement and traffic from your audience.

Yes, social media platforms are another excellent source of website traffic.

To begin with, your social media profiles can include a link to your website.

Drive traffic to your website with content

Spoiler alert: you can’t get more website traffic without content. Marketers with blogs are 13 times more likely to generate positive ROI.Create content around topics that will always be of interest to your audience. 

Write irresistible headlines

Headlines are one of the most important parts of your content. Without a compelling headline, even the most comprehensive blog post will go unread.

Create awesome visuals

Use design tools like Canva to illustrate concepts, visualize data, and recreate charts in your branding. When other sites use your images, they’ll link back to your site.

Incorporate video

Text-based content is all well and good, but video can attract more visitors and keep them engaged. Embed videos into your blog posts so they can appear in video search results.

Link internally

When creating and publishing content, be sure to add at least 1-3 links to other pages on your site to that page. This will help drive traffic to those pages, but also, it (a) keeps visitors on your site longer, (b) gets them to view more pages on your site, and (c) allows them to get more value out of your site—all of which improve your ranking.

Let People Know The Real You

Breath In Breath Out

Well, you finally got the news. After all those tests, the diagnosis is wonderful, better than you dreamed possible.

Michael The Traveling Trucker shares tips about BUILDING YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS.


People encountering a one way sign must travel in the direction that the sign is pointing. What’s the point of looking for a business, asking for help, getting all the information and go in the opposite direction?

A company’s business concept is about the direction and form of its operations. If it is apparent to you that the company’s success lies in its intangible assets, think carefully about protecting them at an early stage.

Four Business concepts for entreprenuers:

The best part is, these concepts will help you to think, talk and act like a modern entrepreneur. All of the concepts you will learn here are important.

CUSTOMER. Without the customer YOU don’t have a business. Treat everyone with respect. Build the relationship. It’s so worth it.

Supply and Demand: Relationship between the quantity of a commodity that producers wish to sell at various prices and the quantity that consumers wish to buy. High Ticket Sales are the best. People who embrace these are serious and ready to get started.

Competition: See what’s working. Check out other sites. Most have testimonials.

Return on Investment. A calculation of the monetary value of an investment versus its cost. In business, few concepts are as important as return on investment (ROI). The adage that “you have to spend money to make money” is often true, but only if you’ve anticipated the ROI potential of your investments. Return on investment refers to the amount of profit directly related to an expense or group of expenses.

What does relax and smell the coffee mean? Glad you asked. To realize the truth about one’s situation : to become aware of what is really happening. These problems are not going to fix themselves. Your finances are looking poor. You worry about paying your bills. You are thinking, there has to be a better way.

THERE IS. I’m working with people who not only teach, mentor and coach, they walk you through the entire process of getting your business up and running. Helping you make the right decisions and seeing a return on your investments. ( PROFIT).

Riding Off Into The Sunset

THE END—- Wasn’t that a great story. Michael The Traveling Trucker strikes again.

We all like the ending of the story with everyone winning, riding off into the sunset happily ever after.


WAIT- WHAT? Where’s the beginning and middle of the story? Where would you start? How does your story differ from everyone else?

Does your story have LOVE? Love can be forestered, extended, used to subjugate hate and thus CURE DISEASES. Real friends are those who, when you’ve made a fool of yourself, don’t feel that you’ve done a permanent job.

Is there JOY? Joy in what you are doing, sharing with those you care about. It’s easy to be pleasent, when life flows by like a song. But the man worth while is one who will smile, when everything goes dead wrong. Let your JOY shine forth for all to see.

Where is your PEACE? Take with you words, strong words of courage: Words that have wings!

I have heard the next one but not sure what it is. LONG SUFFERING. Much wisdom remains to be learned, and if it is only to be learned and if it is only to be learned through adversity, we must endeaver to endure adversitty with what fortitude we can command.

I see GENTLENESS: If you have a weakness, make it work for you as a strength- and if you have a strength, don’t abuse it into a weakness. The kindly word today may bear its fruit tomorrow.

Into the mirror I see GOODNESS. We’ve got to build a better man before we build a better society. The only way to settle a disagreement is on the basis of what’s right- not who’s right. What I must do, and not what people think, is all that concerns me.

FAITH really is a gift of GOD. Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.

MEEKNESS is essentially an attitude or quality of heart whereby a person is willing to accept and submit without resistance to the will and desire of someone elseDon’t let others take advantage of your meekness thinking it’s your weakness.

What is the true meaning of TEMPERANCE ?  Moderation in action, thought, or feeling : restraint. : habitual moderation in the indulgence of the appetites or passions.

See your story does have everything. I’m glad you got to share this with all of us. WAY TO GO. I told you it was easy, don’t you feel better for getting your thoughts down on paper and then say, COME READ.

Let’s sail away PETER PAN. Neverland is waiting for the adventure of a life time. Pixie dust fills the air and the lost boys really aren’t lost.

Captain Hook is a shadow not to be seen again for the crock swallowed him whole. By the way I found your marbles. Don’t ever close those windows, open them wide and embrace your furture.

Here is your chance to ride the wind. Click Here.

Capture Each Day, Enjoy It, Then Let It Go.


Your biggest fight is the 6 inches between your ears, until you settle it, it will kick your butt.

Seat belt on, motivation CD’s on. Best books picked out to read once we stop. Michael The Traveling Trucker offering coaching, mentoring and motivation.

What is keeping you from SUCCESS? Is it fear of what others might think? Have you failed numerous times? No money, no time, no resources?


All of these YOU can overcome, trust me, I know how it feels. Most of the online world has felt this way, so your not alone.

What type of online marketing are you interested in? Affiliate, selling digital products, consumer goods and services? Whatever it is, do you homework. Do a search and see what is working for others. Find a mentor and ask the hundred and one questions.

“IT’S NOT ABOUT THE SIZE OF YOUR DOUBT, BUT THE SIZE OF YOUR FAITH.” Ultimately, doubt is always present when faith is required. There is no need to fear doubt—not our own or the doubt of those we love. For even when we doubt the truth, it still remains true.

“YOUR DOUBT DOES NOT DISQUALIFY YOU.” When you struggle with doubt, it can make you feel like a fraud. It’s easy to believe that having doubts disqualifies you but it DOES NOT. Fight the good fight until you win. Get out your paper and pen- Yep it’s note taking time.

Search your doubt to find its root. There is usually something that is at the core of your doubt, and most other doubts stem from it. If you can identify that core problem, it will help narrow your searching. Is it people in your past saying, you can’t do it?

Be honest with yourself about the nature of TRUTH. Truth doesn’t depend on what you like or on what makes most sense to you personally. Truth is something you have to commit to seeking outside of yourself. 

How to Stop Overthinking and Overcome Self-Doubt. By changing the way we think (or whatever it is we’re trying to do), we can change our emotional response to the action. No one is really paying too close attention to you. That may seem harsh, but it’s actually liberating. 

Most people think about themselves way more than others. The reality is that other people are so absorbed with their own struggles, fears, failures, successes, and what they’re going through, that they rarely take too much time out of their day to consider what you’re up to. 


Let the buzz of thoughts in your head out onto the page.

When we overthink, our heads can get so clouded with buzzing thoughts that we can’t really evaluate each idea clearly and realistically. 

A great way to reduce overthinking is to journal your thoughts. Write down everything you’re thinking without holding back. Just get it all down on paper so it’s out of your head. You can then evaluate what is there and see what the best course of action is.

Embrace Your Self-Doubt

One of the best things we can do to overcome our self-doubt is actually embrace it. Make the decision to embrace your discomfort and embarrassment. Ask yourself “what’s the worst that could happen if I fail?”You will have to figure out another way to do it.

I have a great recommendation about business for you to look at. Click Here.


Asking Your Recipients to Safelist Your Email Address 

As an email marketer, getting your emails to the recipient’s inbox is undoubtedly an important job, but not an easy one.

What a great day to ride along with Michael The Traeling Trucker.


Due to strict spam filtering and email marketing regulations such as the Can-Spam Act, reaching your recipient’s inbox is one of the most difficult jobs. There is a good chance that your emails will go to spam. In such cases, it’s ideal to ask the recipients to safelist your email address. Along with that, you can also tell them how they can do it.

Join just ONE safelist mailer at a time. Join it. Get it completely set up and working for you. THEN think about joining another one. Joining too many too fast could result in a lot of frustration on your part. Here is my recommendation CLICK NOW

Whenever you send an email to someone, it has to pass through several spam filters. Email clients have developed spam filtering to monitor every email to keep the recipient’s inbox free of spam and unwanted messages.

So you have a beautiful list of emails that you’ve collected for months or years. These email addresses belong to people who fit the demographic of your regular customer, maybe they even ARE your customers.

Perhaps the most effective method for utilizing your safelist is to regularly offer discounts. The next best way to maximize the use of your safelist is to update your list when industry or company news gets published on your website.

Want to ensure that your mailing list doesn’t get treated as spam? Constant Contact ensures that your mailing lists adhere to all laws without any extra effort from you, helping you grow your business with customers who want to hear what you have to say.

On a double opt-in list, all email address must be confirmed before they are added. A request for confirmation is sent to the submitted address and the address owner must take some action to confirm that He/she is the owner of the email address,the address is working and He/she indeed wants to subscribe.

safelist is a group of people who have agreed to receive emails from one another. Usually, the group requires membership and has rules regarding how often you are allowed to email the members.

I hope this explains what safelists are and how to excess them. Leave a comment. It helps me focus on what’s important.

I look forward To Helping You
