“This post is sponsored by Russell Brunson but honestly, I was stoked to try his methods!”
If you work in digital marketing as I do, Russell Brunson is a known name. He is the co-founder of ClickFunnels and is a boss at moving product like hotcakes. When the opportunity arose to get an advanced copy of his new book, Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers, I was all in.
For the past 30 days, I’ve been diving in and soaking up Traffic Secrets while learning key strategies to increase site traffic. Don’t get me wrong, it has been a lot of work but work that has been rewarding. The goal of the 30-day challenge is to help you find your dream customers by utilizing people who already do what you’re doing. Might sound crazy but it works!
Just because you build it, doesn’t mean they will come.
As most of you know, after years of friends and family begging me to create something that teaches them how to work from home, I’m finally doing it! I’m creating a series of courses to teach women creatives, stay at home moms, women wanting to be entrepreneurs, how to become bloggers and influencers.
Believe me, when I started out blogging and learning Instagram specifically, I struggled to find the information I needed. So many others would read my messages and ignore them which I found disheartening. I believe in teaching women how to do exactly what I do and choosing community over competition.
So what does this have to do with the challenge? Well, since this is a new product and the first time I’m going to be selling something that’s not a service, I needed to find the best way to market myself and fill my own funnels with my dream customers.
As Russell states, typically the biggest problem entrepreneurs run into isn’t creating the product, it’s getting their dream customers in their funnels and discovering that they even exist. Every year, thousands of businesses launch and fail become they don’t understand the skills of getting your dream customers to find you.
Your dream 100 is the foundation.
Russell starts the book off with information then slowly adds more and more secrets to his methods. Each secret builds off of the last before coming to the end and seeing how it all goes together to create an amazing funnel.
I absolutely love the Dream 100 method. It boggled me at first and I didn’t know what direction to go with it but once I really started getting my groove, it was cake. My Dream 100 kept growing to a larger and larger list.
Without giving to much away, I’m filling my funnel daily by using his methods. The launch for our first set of course will be in July and I’m so excited to see how the launch will go. So if you’re tinkering on the edge on wether or not Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers is worth reading for your product or business, do it!

Everyone always talks about the importance of a morning routine, and numerous books, interviews, and podcasts preach its benefits. CEOs, influencers, entrepreneurs, and more all have big opinions about morning schedules as well. From the benefits of bulletproof coffee, morning meditations, yoga, exercise, goal setting, or practicing gratitude, it’s a lot to fit in before breakfast even starts. The advice on creating your morning routine is overwhelming.
If you have trouble mastering a morning or evening routine, it might be better to focus on other parts of your day that are more flexible. If your day is unpredictable, mornings and evenings don’t have the be the end of any semblance of structure for your entire day. So, what about a lunch break routine?
A lunch break routine can help you give more structure to your day and set the stage for good habits. It also gives us a chance to pause and reset in the middle of the day. You can use your lunch break to retune your mind and body for the rest of your day. A mid-day break also gives you something to look forward to in the earlier part of the day because you know you’ll get a break.
You might be thinking to yourself that your lunchtime is one of the least flexible parts of your day. However, if you know you have a working lunch at your office or you have a lunch meeting, you can reschedule your reset time to earlier or later in your day. You can also shorten or lengthen your routine so that it adapts to your daily schedule. Even ten minutes sometime in the middle of the day can be beneficial to keeping your mid-day routine. No matter how well you slept the night before or how well your morning went, you can always use your lunch break reset to start anew.
The first thing you should do is decide when you’d like to schedule your routine for days that are more predictable, then decide how long you have to practice your routine. By having an expectation for when and how long your routine lasts, you can ensure that it is an important time of your day that you make room in your schedule for. This time should help you relax and take a break from your daily grind, even if it’s just for a few moments. Be protective of this time. Say ‘no’ to accepting calls and block it out on your calendar to avoid getting scheduled for a meeting.

Your time to reset should allow you to give your eyes a break if you’re looking at a screen, stretch and move around if you’re constantly in the same seated position, or just relax if you have a more active job. This time should allow your mind and body to rest momentarily. Turn off your phone, avoid screens, and pause any work during this time. If you’re able to, maybe go for a short walk or sit outside if the weather allows. You can consider doing some simple stretches or using this time to meditate.
Because it is lunchtime, part of your routine (unless you’re working around a lunch meeting or need to work through lunch) should focus on refueling your body. Eat a light, but filling meal that is nutritious and will take you through the rest of your day without bogging you down. Drink water, which can also help you feel less sleepy in the afternoon. If you’ve already eaten, you can refuel your mind by continuing to rest or extend your reset time to clear your head even more.
Towards the end of your lunch break routine, you can begin to refocus your mind back to work and the day ahead. You can think about how your morning went, celebrate any victories, or spend time goal setting, Time spent goal setting can be big goals such as buying a house (Crediful has lots of financial resources) or smaller goals like rocking your next meeting. This time should be treated as a new beginning for the rest of your day. Move on from anything stressful or things that don’t serve you.
Let’s stop quickly shoving food into our stomachs without taking a break in the middle of our day. Use your lunch break or mid-day break to create a small routine that will have a big impact on your day.
