Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all the clutter of advertising online?

Do you scroll through your Facebook news feed and wish you could skip all the ads?

If so, you're not alone. It's easy to feel overwhelmed. Between ads, webinars, emails, and other marketing materials, you can feel like you're always being sold to.

But rather than getting frustrated, what if you decided to take an even closer look at the material and try to learn something?

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how to learn from everything you read online (even the ads) and incorporate the lessons into your business.

Do you desperately want to build your online lifestyle business, but you have no idea where to start?

I see it all the time! People want to create a business, but they don't know what steps to take first or what actions will make the biggest impact.

It might feel overwhelming to get started, but you CAN create a successful online lifestyle business as long as you set these three things in place.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about the first three steps you need to take when you're building your online lifestyle business.

How often do you compare yourself to other people and wish you had what they have?

Sometimes we look at others and think, “That person is richer/thinner/better/more successful than me.” The list goes on.

Just look on Facebook or Instagram and you’ll see plenty who seem to have it all. They might be people in your niche with more followers or more comments on their blogs, or they might be your friends and neighbors who have a better relationship/car/job than you.

But this comparison process is not only pointless, it often lacks the important factor of the truth. You have no real idea who that person is or what happens behind their closed doors.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about why comparing yourself to others will only lead to heartache and how you can learn to measure yourself against yourself instead.

Did you see the Lego Movie? I know, I know. It came out a couple of years ago; I’m a bit behind the times. But in any case, it was a great film, and it was monstrously successful!

And why was it so successful? Because Lego took a product and turned it into a story. What a brilliant plan!

Stories are the backbone of any great brand. Stories make us loyal to one brand over another. Plato said, “Those who tell stories rule the world.” Smart man, that Plato.

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about stories and how they can help you relate to and engage with your audience.

Do you ever feel like you’re just not good enough to do what you want to do? You feel like you’re not smart enough, talented enough, pretty enough, or anything else enough. It can feel debilitating! It can stop you in your tracks and make you give up on your dreams.

We all feel like this sometimes. We all have obstacles to overcome.

Richard Branson says, "surround yourself with people who complement your weaknesses and share your passions. Success will follow,"

On this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how to identify your weaknesses and find ways to plug the gaps so you can be as successful as possible!

How often do we stop ourselves from doing things because of how we feel, either about what we’re going to do or the potential outcome?

Perhaps it’s fear that stops us, or maybe we just don’t feel like doing it, or perhaps we’re procrastinating usually brought on by overwhelm or lack of direction.

Whatever it is, it’s your emotions stopping you.

Sometimes this is a good thing, as our minds are programmed to protect us from harm.

But sometimes that protection stops us from taking positive life changing actions that can help us achieve our goals.

Big T - Tony Robbins says - ‘Master Your Emotions, Master Your Life’.

In this weeks episode I’m exploring what you can do to ensure your emotions don’t stop you from doing what you know can and will change your life…

Let's talk about creating content.

You know you need to create content for your audience in order to grow your business. You hear it over and over again from coaches and business experts.

But sometimes it can feel like an overwhelming task! You want to be on every social media platform, and you have all kinds of things you'd like to create, but you just haven't the time!

How can you create consistent content and stay relevant without letting all the other areas of your business crumble?

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how to become a prolific creator of content that your audience will love!

How often do you reach the end of your day and wonder where the time went?

You feel like your wheels were spinning all day at full speed, but you don’t really have much to show for all that effort.

It’s a common problem, isn’t it? You realize you spent too much time focused on the things that didn’t make a big impact in your life or business, and far too little on the stuff that matters most.

This used to happen to me frequently. But lately I’ve been tweaking just two things about my daily schedule, and my productivity has gone through the roof!

In this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about how to be dramatically more productive every day!

It may sound old fashioned, but I find I can get more done if I do a least 4 things for me -- eat something 3 times a day and take a time outside as #4.  That fresh air revitalizes me significantly and breathing in fresh air helps me keep going. This is from a 70 year old who is still managing a store.

If you’re starting an online lifestyle business, you are probably drowning in technical data. You have to juggle a website, blog, social media platforms, email, landing pages, and the list just goes on! It’s overwhelming just thinking about it!

I learned early on that I was wasting hours and hours of valuable time trying to wade through all this technical stuff.

Thankfully, I found Neil! Neil manages all things technical in my business. I don’t know where I’d be without him.

On this week’s Make It Happen Monday, I’m talking about the importance of outsourcing so you can find your very own Neil and start getting smarter about your time management.

Can you believe that I crossed paths with Mark Zuckerberg on the Great Wall of China!!!

Certainly one of the highlights of our 18 day tour across Asia.

I also flew back from Kuala Lumpur on the same plane as Goldie (you know the guy from a James Bond movie with all gold teeth.)

But apart from rubbing shoulders with celebs we had amazing experiences as we train, plane and automobiled ourselves across Bangkok, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo & Kuala Lumpur.

I picked up some travel tips along the way and thoughts about running a business while on the go and that’s what I’m sharing on this weeks Make it Happen Monday Episode.

Just a few days ago I was surfing through YouTube, when I came across ‘Steve Jobs 10 Rules for Success’

Check out - Evan Carmichael’s channel - Modeling the Masters (

The first rule was ‘Don’t Live a Limited Life’. What a great message.

It made me think about how ‘out of the box’ I have lived my life over the last 6 years and so todays episode is about my journey.

What I’m doing living in Phuket rather than the UK and how we’ve traveled the world as a family.

I tell you this story in the hope that it inspires you to look inside yourself and ask how you can start living your dreams right now!

I saw a great quote recently that said;

“The Goal is to Die With Memories, Not Dreams”

So watch todays episode and stop dreaming and start making memories!

Hi! My name is Jo Barnes. I am a Mother, a Sun Chaser, an Entrepreneur & an Online Marketing Addict.

I started my online business in 2010 and haven't looked back since. In the last 4 years as a family we have lived in Europe, Australia & South East Asia. We have also travelled extensively chasing the sun across the globe! 

This is all made possible because I run my entire business online, so as long as I have an internet connection I can work from anywhere in the world!

I want to give you the opportunity to make better choices because you have more money, more time and more passion for what you're doing than ever before!

My main focus is demonstrating how to increase leads and sales while systemising and automating your business using online marketing strategies & productivity hacks.

I’m also a great believer that good health equals improved results, so there’s a little bit of that thrown into the conversation also!

I can tell you this, living an 'internet lifestyle' is 100% possible for everyone and anyone who wants it and the good news is, you can do it ethically and with integrity and without hard selling. That's the beauty of todays inbound and social media marketing world we live in!

So if you love discovering new ways to fit more into your day, increase your income and get more out of life , be sure to circle my business page-

Also connect with me over on Facebook - and check out my blog -
