I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Warrior Forum and all its members. WF has been responsible for a lot of my successes online, some lifelong friends I met here, great partnerships and relationships formed and well over 5 figures in revenue the past few months alone.
The following is the email I sent to my subscribers, with a little blurb and link of promotion of my current product carefully taken out of this post because I don't want it to be a self promoting post but an important message to all the aspiring entrepreneurs we have here.
Hope you are good.
This email is different, just an important experience
I thought I'd share with you.
Recently due to a family urgency and twist
of plans, led me to travel almost 4000 miles
at the short notice of 4 weeks.
Well, you'd say, take a flight and boom you'll
be there right?
Well, when you have to abandon all your plans,
most of your belongings, and have a ONE WAY
ticket because you don't know whats in store for
you. It ain't fun.
But during the flight I was thinking, Its not so bad.
I mean how many people could do that? specially
at such a short notice?
That is when I realized! All this struggle, all the hours
in front of the computer screen, almost no social life
(at least in the beginning) and a constant reminder
that I had to pay the bills at the end of the month, ALL
the Hard Times.
It was all worth it!
The entire trip was paid for, along with all the other
expenses, by Internet Marketing alone.
Yup, that money came from my online endeavors.
Not a job, no begging the bosses for extra hours
and more shifts, no calling friends and family for
last minute loans.
I mean, just imagine if a serious urgency comes at the
end of the month, when you are already short of
cash and you gotta raise a couple of thousand $$
and you can't even do extra time at work.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I know how it is and how it feels to be a struggling
marketer, an aspiring entrepreneur with all but good intentions
a lot of hard work but nothing to show for.
It is TOUGH! very tough. But I want you to believe in yourself
and keep going.
Never Back Down!
In the end, if you keep going, keep believing in yourself, it
will pay off! Everything will be worth it.
I'm here to help. Drop me an email if you feel like I'm
the person who could help with a specific problem.
I am at my current location for a couple of months
before going back to England but I will be working
online so I'll stay in touch.
Also, keep an eye on my Coaching program reopening
in a couple of days.
For now I have been busy with the customer service
and setting up my last product Instant Income Streams
on an affiliate network as I received several emails
from people wanting to promote it.
Till next time,
(end of email)
My online career has seen A LOT of ups and downs but if there has been one thing that kept me going is my WHY. What is your WHY? Why do you do what you do? Why do you want to be an Online Entrepreneur?
It is very important to know your WHY because that is one thing which will keep you going through the tough times and make you start all over again the next day.
Be Consistent! Never give up.
Every product/project I've failed in online has been a great learning experience and I've never considered any of my endeavors a failure.
I've learned how to take calculated risks, I've learned how not to do certain things, I've learned how to establish relationships with partners, online social circle, virtual assistants and freelancers.
I've learned short term is just as important as the long term plans. I've learned short term planning is not being short sighted, those are two different things.
I've learned its important to have consistent cash flow while you are working away online.
I've learned its important to believe in yourself and in your proposal before approaching a client or a potential JV partner as it clearly comes across in your attitude.
I've learned that there is no difference being a pessimist who thinks nothing will happen or being an optimist who thinks it will all work out in the end and do nothing about it. ACTION is key!
Have an abundant mindset, reward people, value your time, cultivate relationships, treat your list with utmost respect and love, value friendships and don't underestimate the power and value of little things in life.
With that said, I wish you all the Best in your online endeavors. Just remember, everything you need to get started is right here. Take that step today, not tomorrow. Reading or learning and doing/implementing are two different things.
To your success,
