So Much Going On - Which Way to Go?

So much going on - and it's hard to know where to start ....

Well, yesterday I quit my job.  For a lot of reasons - but mainly I wasn't making much money and it just didn't 'feel right'.  It seemed that I was always pissed off and getting upset about stupid stuff - but I knew it was the job.

I know I need to make money, but I also know that life is too short to be miserable - and too precious to make anyone else miserable.  Especially my pregnant wife.  She doesn't deserve it.  Heck, I don't deserve it.


I did learn something very valuable in that job though.  I learned that I can indeed make 50-60 cold calls on the telephone a day.  I wasn't great at it, but I did get better.  And with my experience in sales, I know it really comes down to the numbers.  Make more calls, presentations, send more emails, make more contacts or connections and make more sales - AND Make More Money.

So while I do believe it's true that more sales activities (calls, presentations, webinars, emails, etc) create more sales, I do NOT necessarily believe that more websites will create more sales - or even more sales opportunities.

Here's my problem:  I have a problem with focus.  I seem to really like activity, rather than focusing on what is important.  Some call it the shiny object syndrome.  Others like myself call themselves Variety Seekers (we even have a 'secret' group on Facebook).

Like my wife, I really want to be able to make money online and work from anywhere I can have a laptop and internet connection.  It's really not even a matter of wanting.  It's what is going to happen.  But I think I might need a bit more focus and better planning and even perhaps some better coaching to make it happen as soon as we want it to.

Just to give you an idea, here are just some of the websites that I own - and have posted in the past month or two:

http://JoeAbs.com - probably haven't posted here in awhile, but Joe Abs is on the way back ....  ;-)

That doesn't include the many sites that I haven't been posting to either.  I kind of feel like I just need to choose one and do it right.  What's your opinion?  You obviously cannot make up my mind for me, but I do value your input.  And BTW - Thanks for reading!
