If you were to ask business owners the number one thing they wish they had done right from the beginning, many of them will say that they wish they had focused on building an email list, from day one.
But why is it so important to build an email list? Why I’m glad you asked! This post will explain the top reasons to build an email list, and will also provide information on the email service provider that I recommend.
I’m always on the lookout for people to mentor me in my business. Sometimes that mentorship comes in the form of face-to-face interactions, and other times it comes through books, but seldom has it come (for me anyway) via T.V. The exception is Marcus Lemonis, a.k.a. The Profit.

Because of that, I was delighted when I came across this infographic on why and how to use images in email.
Having a hard time getting the most important things done each day?
Working hard, but not really getting anywhere?
