I know so many of you are setting BIG goals this year and planning exactly how you’re going to make those a reality in your life and business. But as you plan, I want to be sure your mindset is in the right place and you’re thinking about what you’re ready to let go of that may no longer be serving you (and how you can create space for something that is!). That’s why today, we’re diving into how to clear out products and offerings that are holding you back in business so you can achieve more time and more focus to create consistent, reliable income, and a strong business foundation.

From the Freakonomics podcast, here’s how Schwartz describes the very memorable jam study, by the psychologists Mark Lepper and Sheena Iyengar:

When researchers set up [in a gourmet food store] a display featuring a line of exotic, high-quality jams, customers who came by could taste samples, and they were given a coupon for a dollar off if they bought a jar. In one condition of the study, 6 varieties of the jam were available for tasting. In another, 24 varieties were available. In either case, the entire set of 24 varieties was available for purchase. The large array of jams attracted more people to the table than the small array, though in both cases people tasted about the same number of jams on average. When it came to buying, however, a huge difference became evident. Thirty percent of the people exposed to the small array of jams actually bought a jar; only 3 percent of those exposed to the large array of jams did so.
