Looking for ideas and suggestions to get your first online Pay Check?
Look I get it! We are spoiled for choice these days when it comes to making a side-income or even full-time income online.
Which, while kind of cool at first glance, unfortunately leads to a massive case of OVERWHELM when exploring the list of what you can focus on, for example…
- Affiliate marketing with a Blog (ahem!)
- Driving Traffic to offers via paid traffic
- Monetizing Social Networking Platforms
- Becoming a successful ‘YouTuber’
- Promoting yourself as the Local Businesses ‘Go To’ Guy
- Dropshipping via Amazon
- Etsy and Shopify Stores
- Creating your own Digital Products

Because the more you explore all the options the more you get bombarded by the ‘latest’ must have Tools and Tactics and fall into the trap of what we call ‘Shiny Object Syndrome’…
At its core, shiny object syndrome (SOS) is a disease of distraction, and it affects entrepreneurs specifically because of the qualities that make them unique. Entrepreneurs tend to be highly motivated. They crave new technology and new developments. And they aren’t afraid to start new projects and create new things.
Ordinarily, these are great characteristics, but when SOS sets in, it forces you to chase project after project, and change after change, never settling with one option.
It’s called shiny object syndrome because it’s the entrepreneurial equivalent of a small child chasing after shiny objects. Once they get there and see what the object is, they immediately lose interest and start chasing the next thing. For entrepreneurs, rather than literal shiny objects, SBOs may be business objectives, marketing strategies, clients or even other business ventures.
This is real, trust me! Even though I’m aware of this I STILL sometimes find myself getting distracted by some new tactic ( real OR fake) that takes away my focus.
Now don’t get me wrong – we should always be learning and exploring new ideas but NOT to the extent that we do ONLY that and spend all our time ‘learning’ instead of earning.
