Inspiration is something we all need in our daily lives. It pushes us to do greater things and makes us feel good inside.
My post today is for anyone who is an entrepreneur, growing their online home business.
I want to share a little of my story so that it will inspire you to carry on, stop you quitting and give you inspiration to believe in yourself and what you are doing.
Inspiration – The Beginning
I was introduced to the industry by a close friend of mine and from that point on I embarked on a massive learning curve.
I thought I could operate a computer and was computer literate. However, I soon discovered the only thing I knew was how to write and answer emails.
The jargon that was around confused me. I didnt understand words like capture page, squeeze page or sales page. I also didnt know what a blog or a lead was.
It seems crazy now I look back. However, thats how it was for me and I imagine how it is for many new people who are beginning their journey now.
If any of the above resonates with you, stay around and read on because when we talk of inspiration I want this post to inspire you to think bigger, better and believe in your ability to get through the tough times.
I soon began to learn the difference between a blog and a website. I saw that many marketers had a blog which led me to wanting one of my own.
Can you believe with my limited technical knowledge that I actually attempted to create a blog myself? I know, it was madness.
After wasting a few months I finally hired someone using Odesk (Upwork now I believe) . It didn’t cost too much and after a couple of weeks I actually had a blog to write on.
My blog has developed and changed since then and has now become what you see today. Its always work in progress and like anything has room for improvement.
To learn more about blogging I bought Ray Higdon’s Pro Blog Academy Course. This was the first course I ever bought. Ray now has the 3 Minute Expert course for bloggers which is a better course and contains everything you need to learn about blogging.
I began being coached by Rebecca Woodhead. I learned a great deal about social media and how I should be posting for a purpose, plus many other things.
However, in the Summer of 2015 I found myself floundering. I wanted to quit and felt like I was going around in circles. The jigsaw pieces just wouldn’t fit together in my mind.
After telling myself I didnt need to get stressed and after a lot of tears and frustration, I phoned my Upline and friend Richard to tell him I was leaving.
Richard talked me out of going and mentioned that his Up line, Ray Higdon was visiting our home town in a few weeks. I felt better after talking things over and when Ray came to our town I went to see him.
That day,…. was a huge turning point for me and my business
The Turning Point
After meeting Ray I enrolled in his online Top Earner Success School where I received top class training in the subjects all marketers need to know. In fact my 8 video series is based on this very course.
I then went on to invest in a 6 month coaching program of Ray’s and then progressed to investing in his Mastermind Coaching Program inside his Top Earner Club, which was for 12 months. Recently, I renewed for another 12 months.
When you are immersed in a coaching program you sometimes can’t see the wood for the trees. However, on reflection, you can.
Since becoming a member I have found the courage to create my own product and hold webinars. This week alone, I sold more product, rank advanced in an affiliate program I am part of and was invited to be interviewed for a summit being held for women entrepreneurs.
More and more people reach out to me now than ever before and my inner confidence and belief is growing every day. I remain humble because I still have a great deal to learn. However, the progress I have made through investing in my coaching and education has been the best investment I have made.
When things begin to happen its hard to describe how it makes you feel. All I can tell you is that it is worth all the heartache, hard work, frustrations and doubts.
Now I truly believe in myself. I know that I can do this. Believe me, I am what is known as a Baby Boomer and if I can learn all this stuff at my age then so can you.
Did I Inspire YOU?
Did any part of what I have shared give you inspiration?
Has it given you hope that you too can make progress ?
YOU are your biggest asset.
If you invest in yourself and get the knowledge you need you will put yourself in the great position of being able to help others whilst at the same time, grow your business.
When you succeed then you will get all those things that you have dreamt about.
I did a live video talking about this on Facebook last night. So I thought I would include it in this post.
