What a difference a few months make.....

When I cam here in August, I was really overwhelmed. There was SO much information! This forum is so awesome!

I read.....and read.....and read. Asked questions. Took action.

I have posted about my first $300 day. I have had more. I have reached another milestone, but I will post about that in another thread. :rolleyes:

Now, if I make less than $100 a day, I am really disappointed.

I cannot even put into words how different my outlook is. I have always been positive, but there is such an excitement every day! I can't wait to log on and see how much I made while I slept! I can't wait to get to work for my clients.

I am so excited that the phrase, "We can't afford that," never has to be uttered to my children again.

Hubby and I are excitedly making plans for his retirement. He is SO excited! So am I!

Newbies, you don't have to wait to get started. Don't analyze everything and get worked up over the details. You need to read (a lot) and then take action!

Don't wait. Don't make excuses.

Read.

Learn.

Ask questions.

Get started.

It will totally change your life.

    Shay, that is so cool. Not only am I thrilled for you and your success, but you are an inspiration to me!

    Though I've been slow to start, I'm finally starting to take action, thanks to the help that you and others have given me.

    You go, girl! Here's to ever-increasing success for you--you deserve it!

    Hey Shay -

    I really liked your post because it gives hope to those thinking they cannot do this! Sometimes they need to hear that successful marketers were once frustrated wannabe marketers.

    That has actually been my marketing approach on youtube. Simply letting people know that I share the same struggles, frustrations they do - but I didn't give up and found a way to make it happen!

    Somtimes people think successful marketers just landed here...frustration free ; D

    Yeah...and we haven't used those words "I can't afford it," either in quite some time!

    Congrats to your (continued) success, Shay!

    Shay - that's freakin' incredible news! Well done. How about you give us a sense of what strategy you are using? We love getting that kind of stuff (I think it helps everyone feel good knowing there are SO many ways to get independent using IM).

    Fantastic news and I really feel good hearing this. You are definitely inspiring a lot of people.

      Thank you!

      Most of my income is from writing for clients, at this point - but I am in the process of transitioning and having more passive income (although I will always write for clients - I enjoy it so much!).

      THAT is really exciting for me - the money you make while you sleep.

      My other income is coming from blogs and selling info products (guides/ecourses) through them.

      I do have a list of 1800 moms that I started building as a hobby that I have not really tapped into yet. Finding the best way to utilize that list is part of my strategy for 2009.

        Shay, the easiest way to monetize that list is to open their minds up to the
        possibility of making a side income online. In today's difficult times, you'll
        be surprised how many will be open to it IF you present it properly.

        Another way is to think about what the average mom likes, such as
        recipes and things like that.

        The market to moms is unlimited. Just think about what you like.

        Oh, and congrats on your success.

          Hey Shay,

          Congrats on your success. I love success stories, they're so inspiring. I'm very happy for you and your family. If your husband is able to retire and you're working at home with a flexible schedule you'll have the time and resources to do the things in life that you WANT to do rather than the things that most people HAVE to do. I know that's what I'm after.

          To your continued success...

          You are an inspiration to a lot of people that visit this forum. Keep up the good work and keep posting here as well.

          Adam.

    hey Shay,
    Keep on keepin' on girl! Your success gives us something to look forward to. Thank you for sharing. I just started taking action, made no money yet but got some good results and now I'm hooked. It's only a matter of time before I post my first affiliate sale. Thanks again for the inspiration and motivation.

    Wow! That's super. Just when I was thinking, "another 1:00 am night to get my articles written and submitted; is it worth it?" you post that success. You can tell how it energized everyone, and how genuinely happy for you everyone is! Give us more details, if you aren't giving away secrets.....

      Okay. Now that I have a few minutes....

      I write to make money online - no secret there - but I also do more than just write for clients. I write for myself - to create guides/reports/etc. in order to help people.

      But there is more.

      I pace myself. I am organized. I write down my plans for the next day. I work with my personality and quirks to use them to my advantage.

      Case in point: it is after midnight and I am online and writing. Why? Because I work best late at night.

      I know myself, so I work well by myself. Does that make sense?

      I didn't try to learn a zillion new things when I came here. I took inventory of what I could do, learned from the great Warriors here, and then adapted what I learned to help me make money - taking my strengths and weaknesses into account.

      Each week, I make new goals and branch out so I can increase my income. I write things down and make a plan.

      I hope that helps.

    Shay, It's always a pleasure to read your posts... Very refreshing.

    Don't you love the fact that you can make money when you sleep??? I know the feeling, and it's sooo cool to wake up excited... just racing to your puter, and waiting for it to load to see your balances/sales... it's awesome.

    Good luck in all your ventures.

    P.S. Have you been reading your "You are free to invent your life." fortune cookie every day?

      Congratulations! Shay,
      To me your post is more inspirational than those who come in bragging about their 1000s of dollars in their latest release.

      Your post makes it seem realistic that in a short time someone who is struggling can make a decent amount of money with the prospects of more in the future.
