I trained myself through Google and Youtube – and I am thankful for all the free training I have found over the years.
I am also grateful for all the years I got to spend with my children, my husband, my friends and my dog. Time is a precious thing and spending 40 hours a week at a job you hate is no fun!
Most of my life, I have worked for myself.
I had a few jobs over the years and I didn't always hate them. I did hate that I had to go to work every day. I had a lot of years when I wasn't very healthy – and going to work was hard when I was sick.
I usually don't last long at jobs because I am psychologically unemployable. I don't like working 40 hours a week for a paycheck. Plus, I feel I am worth more than most jobs are willing to pay me.
I was born with an entrepreneurial spirit.
- I like setting goals and hitting them.
- I like freedom – time and money.
- I like working for myself, setting my own schedule.
- I like learning something new every day.
Keeping it real here – sometimes working from home is hard. Sometimes I put in long days and got very little in return. Sometimes I would start a project and it would take months to see a return on my investment.
I love that I can work from home or work from the beach. All I need is a computer and a phone. I can work from anywhere. When I spent 3 months on Kauai, I used to get up at 5am and work until 10am and then go to the beach. That was the life!
When I started Internet marketing there was no complete training (that I knew of).
I would find a little info here and a little info there – never a central place where all my questions could be answered. Sometimes, I would search for hours before I found an answer to a question.
I have taken plenty of courses, e-mail and online and learned a ton!
If you want to work from home too, just about anybody can earn extra income from home if they do these 3 things.
#1 Set Goals
If you don't have a target, you can't hit it.
The great, Zig Ziglar told a story on his “Goals” audio recording – that I listened to until I wore the cassette tape out and then I downloaded it on Napster!
(yep, I'm really dating myself now)
Zig said he could beat the number one archer in the world at an archery competition!
If first, someone blindfolded the #1 archer and spun him around a few times so he would have no idea where the target was.
That's what going through life with no goals is like.
“If you shoot for the stars and hit the moon, it's OK. But you've got to shoot for something. A lot of people don't even shoot.” ~Confucius
#2 Make a Decision
Some people will give Internet marketing a “try” – there is no try. Yoda said it better than I ever could. Watch it and remember – do or do not.
It's your decision.
You can't just try working from home for a couple of days and quit because it isn't working. Dig in. Do what it takes.
Most people decide to work from home and then their friends and family tell them that “those things” never work and the company they are with is a scam.
And they quit.
They quit because they believed people who are working a job and collecting a paycheck would know whether you can make money working from home.
What do those people know about working from home?
They have jobs.
Talk to entrepreneurs and ask them whether you can work from home and make a good living. They know. You don't have to work a job.
All you have to do is find something you love to do, find a way you can help other people while doing what you love.
There is that nasty “C” word that everybody hates!
You know the one – commitment.
I am not asking you to get married. Just make the decision – you are going to reach your goals, no matter what it takes.
You have to decide you are going to succeed and…
#3 Educate Yourself
“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.” ~Jim Rohn
Learning the steps from someone who has already taken those steps is the best way to learn. You can do what I have done for the last 23 years and piece an education together from here, there and everywhere (Google and Youtube) are fantastic for learning things…
Or you can get free training to work from home, all in one place, with live help and an active community of entrepreneurs.
If you are looking for a group of people who are all committed to your success- look no further! I really have never seen a group as active and kind as this one.
When I say completely free training – I mean it.
You get to try it all for free for the first 7 days – with many of the perks and you can even build a couple of free websites – with help from the training of course.
You will have video training and written training, plus the ability to ask questions in the community – for free for the first 7 days.
You even get access to the keyword research tool – which is so cool!
After 7 days, your ability to interact and ask questions in the community goes away unless you upgrade to “Premium” – which is only $19 for the first month and $49 a month after that. There is also a way you can bring the cost down to under $30 a month if you sign up for the yearly plan.
I was looking at another training for Internet marketing and they wanted $17,995 for the elite training which included less than I am getting for $19
That was actually how I found this free training – because it was being compared to this other one – and when I clicked on the link to join – I saw that I had already joined for free – Five Years Ago!
But I never did anything with it five years ago. I made a profile and probably looked around some, but it looks like I never started the training or made a website. The platform tracks your progress and all of my progress was at zero!
So, last Monday, I upgraded to premium to get access to the full support of the community and dive in head first into the training. I have completed all of the training that would have been available to me as a free member and I am continuing on with the Premium training.
How do you like the website I created in one week?
Not bad, huh?
You can do this too.
I hope to see you inside the free training
Work from home and you can work from anywhere!
This picture is from when I stayed in Kauai for 3 months.
Where would you go if you could go anywhere?
Leave a comment below. I'm looking forward to getting to know you and seeing your own progress and success!
