Why Traffic Generation Café Is Not Making as Much Money as It Should

Last updated on

Your online business is a bridge from your life as you have it to your life as you see it.

In your new life, you might have the time and the money to do EXACTLY what you want when you want it.

You’ll no longer have to read the menu in a restaurant from right to left.

You’ll no longer have to check the price tag before deciding if you have enough room on your credit card to buy something.

Your assets will finally grow beyond pizza coupons.

But that will be then.

For now, you are overwhelmed, underpaid, and just don’t get why your busy-ness in your business hasn’t gotten you any closer to the life you wish you had.

And you are not alone.
