So . . . you all now know my experience in learning how to swim . . . the pool . . . the ice cold water . . . and the bees!
And what exactly does swimming have to do with doing an online business?
Well . . . let’s look at the whole swimming mindset . . . and the online business mindset. And keep in mind, this is from my personal experience . . . in both swimming and doing business online.
As you’ve probably concluded, I’ve pretty much known how to swim since I was about nine years old . . . Now I’m on the declining side of 60, and still swimming, probably better now than I ever have. But that’s another story. Suffice it to say that swimming might be one of the best exercises – besides walking – for senior fitness . . . of course if you know how to swim. Even water exercises and water aerobics are wonderful options.
Now what does swimming have to do with an online business?

The online business landscape is much like an ocean . . . sometimes calm and mostly stormy. Many of us are not really sharks or whales in this ocean of online business and marketing. Most of us are guppies or at best minnows just barely swimming in a huge current of SEOs, leads, emails, spams, safelists, and a world of other cyber entities that consume our energy, time, attention and learning skills. We try our best to learn all the secrets, techniques, special strategies to help improve our online presence only to see a marked deficiency in our time, and in many cases our monthly income, which though there is an increase output, the input is about the same or even less.
