If you are into internet marketing, you have to explore the lifestyle that

is the envy of every person on the planet: jetsetting, having vacation after

vacation, while money rolls in on automatic pilot. However, this comes with a price,

and whether you realize it or not, burnout may be on your cards.

You may or may not be an internet marketing expert. Perhaps you are striving to be

one. No matter where you go, we live on 24 hours a day, and even if you are a super

internet marketer, there's always a limit to what you can do with the time you have.

There are three major categories of internet marketers. The first, is the

super-hardworking sort. You are the kind that works literally 16 hour days as if

this were a job you could be fired from. Unfortunately, you overwork, and you burn

out quickly. Your family complains about your lifestyle. You don't have balance.

The second is the one that ding-dongs from hard work to no work. You churn out

content, then you sell them, make your money, then go on vacation. You are the

epitome of active income, because without activity, you have no income.

The final one which is by far the smartest, is the one that builds residual income

streams. By this, I mean building an income stream that works without you. If you

haven't learnt how to build income streams, you probably aren't really able to build

much residual ones. However, this should be your primary concern, because you will

have to work hard once and then forget about it.

Jay Conrad Levinson, the father of Guerilla Marketing, leads an extremely balanced

life. He works hard for three days of the week and takes the rest off to enjoy what

the world has for him. If you are someone who desires this kind of life, you will

definitely need to stop thinking of yourself as the hard working guru. It's a matter

of principle. You have more responsibility than simply just making money. You have

family and health to care for.

The balanced lifestyle has only two basic elements. The first is personal alignment

and the second is goal awareness. Personal alignment is in doing something that fits

in with our purpose and being. If you are not aligned, you'd be extremely stressed.

Sometimes, you might think you are aligned, but you might be shocked that I'd say

you could be addicted. Being addicted and being passionate with what you do are two

very different things, and it isn't easy to identify. What you must realize is that

if you are addicted to it, it could spell disaster for your well-being eventually.

The second is goal awareness. You will need to be more aware of your desires, and

things that require your attention. Do you need to build a better relationship with

your spouse? Your children? How about your health - mental, spiritual and physical?

Considering these goals and being aware of how you can dovetail these with your

limited time schedule, you will begin to realize how much more you can achieve even

within the same span of time. Dovetailing is a process of seeing two things and

achieving it as though it were one goal. Don't just do internet marketing and become

an internet marketing expert. Be the father who dotes on his family while you are an

expert. Don't just be a millionaire. Be a millionaire that shares with the world.
