Why Reducing Clutter Is Essential To Creating The Life + Business You Desire

 

Hey there! Before we dive into the content, don't forget to get access to my free workshop, How To Build Your First Online Course here

 


 

This is a guest post by digital organization and business system coach, Lydia Martin, of Banish Business Clutter and the Digital Clutter Cure.

What is Clutter?

When you hear the word "clutter", do you just think of physical clutter? A messy desk? A pile of paperwork? A room in your home that is disorganized?

According to Merriam-Webster, the verb clutter means... to run in disorder; to fill or cover with scattered or disordered things that impede movement or reduce effectiveness.

I think Peter Walsh explains it best when he said,

“Clutter is not just the stuff on your floor. It's anything that stands between you and the life you want to be living.”

In 1995, I was a newlywed and a music teacher who launched a home-based business as a side gig. (Long before the term "gig economy" was a thing.)

Being a #Kajabihero is like being in a club with other superheroes. 

I've been a digital entrepreneur for about a year now. In that time, I've used Squarespace, Honeybook, Teachable, Dubsado, Square, and other miscellaneous apps and software to scale my business.

But, I knew that if I wanted to diversify my income, grow my business in a grand way, and look professional while doing it -- I need to find a platform that could do it all.

That's why I signed up for Kajabi and never looked back.

That's also why in this post I want to share with you seven reasons you should switch to Kajabi, too!

If you haven’t already heard, Instagram is testing hiding likes in the U.S. This has already been a reality for other countries like Canada and New Zealand and there is absolutely no reason to panic. I truly believe the benefits outweigh the disadvantages and if it makes you feel better, the majority of people we’ve talked to are actually excited about this change! But like with any change to social media platforms and their algorithms, it will take some adjustments to your strategy to make the most of the changes.

 

Focus on creating the content you want. Not what others are creating.

Have you ever noticed that the people you follow on Instagram start to all talk about the...

Hey! This post does contain affiliate links for Kajabi. To learn more about how we use affiliate links, read our full disclosure policy here.


I want to first start off by saying that Teachable is a great starter platform.

I've been using Kajabi for almost a year now and I am continually impressed by the platform and all of its capabilities. Not to mention, the staff at Kajabi are always working to make improvements!
