The first thing you might want to do is create two email accounts. Or if you have already have one (which is likely), then create a separate account. For your main account, sign up for the gurus whose information you respect. You’ll want to keep only the best emails in your main account. For your separate account, sign up for all other lists in your niche. This is where you can pick up great marketing ideas from the emails you receive.

Don’t rely on others, become self-sufficient and you will reap the rewards. I guarantee it.
