How To Earn More Money with Less Work

Even a 2-year old boy would want to earn more money, without doing much.

A lot of us believe in the 80/20 pareto principle and it’s important that you simplify the whole process. Don’t you think so?

You’ve to work on your most important task. The tasks that have the potential to bring more cash into your bank account.

But it could get confusing, when you consider all the activities a blogger is expected to carry out on a daily basis. Most of the time, it may seem that all the tasks are vital, and you can’t easily sacrifice one for the other.

What if you’re just starting out?

The truth of the matter is that if you’re new to blogging or haven’t made significant income, then you may think the idea of working less and earning more wouldn’t apply to your case.

But I don’t think so. In fact, it’s a lot easier for beginners since they’re yet to immerse themselves into the work.

The most important factor to earning more is to stay FOCUS.

Why FOCUS is powerful

stay focus

Bill Gates was the world’s richest man at a time. If I should ask you why and what he does, what would your answer be? He is focused on Microsoft and channeled all his creative energy into it.

I’m not here to talk about the development aspect, because I don’t know the technicalities involved. But you get the point, right? Mark Zuckerberg is one of the world’s youngest Billionaires because he’s focused on Facebook and nothing else.

Yes, in recent times, Mark has acquired a lot of other online properties, but they’re all geared towards building a more friendly social media network.

Warren Buffett is wealthy, famous and cheerful, not because he had the best education than most of us had, but because he’s focused and calculative on what to invest his money on. He’s focused on investment.

If you want to earn more, stay focused.

Yes, you heard me right. Stop searching for money making opportunities everywhere. This can take up a bunch of your time and cause you to waste money.

In order to work lesser than you’re doing right now and get more, focus is a vital key that can take you there.

Of course, you don’t have to quit twitter, Facebook and Pinterest to earn more. In fact, you can use their robust platforms especially Google+ to establish your authority. But don’t get carried away by the things happening there. Don’t spend more than 2 hours tweeting; it’s not wise at all.

Don’t share a link if you can achieve a better result with a tweet. If it’s an image, instead of wasting time sharing the image link on Facebook, a pin on your board would do the job perfectly.

Our goal is to cut down on the activities that take us away from the main thing. To avoid distractions, when you’re writing a blog post, disconnect from the internet and just go offline.

A word of caution: Don’t launch another blog or product if you’ve not made any significant income from the first. It could be possible that you made a mistake or trespassed, which is causing the failure – find out the reason and fix it.

Stay focused. If you prefer to monetize your blog with affiliate links and banners, don’t distract your visitors with Google AdSense Ads. Experiment with affiliate offers and see how much you can earn before diversifying your income portfolio.

Take this home

As you can see, focus is a very vital key for anyone who wants to make more money online, with less effort. One of the reasons why John Chow is rich is because he has only one authority site and all his creative efforts and investment goes into it.

There is nothing wrong with having multiple sites and products. But it’s going to take a lot of hard work to manage and build relationship with the target audience. And this is the CORE!

Yes, you can earn more when you tune to the “focus antenna.” I’m sure you can do it?

What other simple strategy can bring you more money, with less work?

    Good post, ok I’m going to back to work on my site now, You’re making me lose focus LOL

  2. Andy says:

    This post reminds me of something i read in Napoleon Hill’s Outwitting The Devil, where he talks about people having a “definite purpose” and the power of having an absolutely singular focus on achieving your objectives. It’s something very powerful.

    There is only so much reading and educating you can do. Chances are if you are reading this you have enough education and a good enough game plan. The problem most of you reading this will have is a lack of focus and a lack of action. You have the plan. You have the definite purpose. You have the focus. Now its time to act no?

    Good post, enjoyed it!

  3. Dwayne says:

    It is very important to maintain focus. When working online, it’s easy to get distracted by the “get rich quick” offers. If you’re always chasing the next new thing, you’re never focused. Commit, focus, and make it happen!

    Michael Chibuzor, great FOCUS article!

  5. Edson Hale says:

    This is exactly secret of money making without burning your soul. But in this age of stiff competition people try to manage their several projects just hoping to pick the most successful of them.

  6. Great post !!! I made the wrong decision starting to work on several blogs, instead of focusing on one. Now I have sold them and im only going to focus my work on one blog.

    Thanks for the article.

  7. Yes, you are right. Focus is most important element in search for success. I’m jumping from project to project to finish them, spreading my energy and results on multiple sides.

  8. FERNANDO says:

    Really loved the ideas and the Focus message you have brought up through this article. Thanks for the share and it’s true that starting few blogs at the sometime distracts us form making a big impact from the main blog.

  9. Joanne says:

    FOCUS is an essential factor to become successful in what we do. With all the distractions surrounding us, we likely lose our focus on the important things. So I agree with you, Michael, that we should stop searching for money making opportunities everywhere and focus on what we already have instead.

    For me, if one wants to earn money with less work he should also be passionate in what he does. If he loves what he’s doing, he’ll stick to it though how many distractions he’ll encounter. He’ll enjoy every single day of his career as well while earning.

    My own formula: Passion + Focus= SUCCESS (Earn more money with less work)

    Interesting article, Michael!

    I found and “kingged” the post on

  12. Jethro says:

    This blog post really strikes me as I’m always looking for ways on how to earn more. I forgot the word focus.. Anyway, I think I should concentrate on one aspect or passion that I want to develop. And then after polishing it, will go and use it in a real world. I’m sure people want to earn extra or make this as their full time not just part time. John Chow knows how to make money online that’s why I’m always here reading everyone’s work. Keep it up!

    Awesome Michael! The power of focus cannot be ignored. The takes on this post are inspiring and a key takeaway for me is this part:

    A word of caution: Don’t launch another blog or product if you’ve not made any significant income from the first. It could be possible that you made a mistake or trespassed, which is causing the failure – find out the reason and fix it.

  15. Leslie says:

    You are so right. Focus is important. There is so much information available and it can be easy to get distracted. This was a good reminder for me right now.

  16. To be focus on what you do is the most important principle in everything you do in your daily life. You always achieves better results. I agree that it is important to be well on Google + and not be around at a lot of unnecessary social media, it just takes a lot of time.

    Focus on the work we do online, this help a lot when earnings don’t want to come after days of work.

  22. jodi shaw says:

    Great post! I have been blogging for four years now. I do product reviews because I love them, I do sponsored posts because I get paid to write. However I’m not making the money you are and wish to make more to support my family. My niche is so highly competitive, yet I no matter what I do I can’t gain enough readership. I have read everything on seo, marketing, using social networks to my advantage. Nothing is working. I appreciate the tips you made on facebook, pinterest and picking and choosing how you post. How do you engage online to keep our audience happy? No matter what I do I feel like I’m failing because in what I do it’s all a numbers game. And trust me I’m focused!!!!

  23. punjabibolo says:

    Wonder-full john i want focus now more on things which i want to do.. right now

  24. Arbaz K says:

    Great share Michael.
    Focus is the key to making it big in the business. Without focus, you won’t be able to achieve your goals and thus there won’t be any success.
    I didn’t know about the 80/20 pareto rule and now I know about it and I think with it one can earn more money with less work.
    Thanks a lot for the post 🙂

  25. Jestine Yong says:

    Focus and give what the audiences want is the key to success. They will become your fan marketers which means they will tell their friends about your blog. Once you have build up your sticky communities there is no reason why you can’t make money from your blog

  26. Enstine Muki says:

    Focus is the key and I have always preached this because it works. It’s absolutely a waste of time jumping from one thing to the other. That really explains why most of us don’t make it even in real live

    Focus is the core of any business. Thanks for sharing.

  28. Jawbone Up says:

    Nicely say. Focus on 1 topic, niche or plan can be good and bad. You are planting 100% of your energy into 1 basket, and if anything happens, you’ll lose everything.

    I tend to channel all my energies to 1 business, and it failed. I wasted all my time and effort. Right now, I diversify, and should any part of my businesses failed, I have other legs to withstand the storm.
