it is so exciting and I could not have done it without this forum and all the helpful people here.

I have been working so hard pushing to get my first book done and course. I still need to do much more marketing and work on my blog. I spent most of the time on my products and building a list of people I knew.

First day my book up I sold 5 of them at $9.99 Yay!

First day my course up sold 9 at $350! Double Yay!

Do the math!

This so exciting! I can really do it!

Next is to continue working on my marketing, keep my customers happy, and start on my 2nd product.


The only bad thing was when I did announce my company, a former boss who was a real jerk and fired me when I was sick, emailed me with a nasty scathing email. He basically said I am a joke and lousy at $#@# and have no business offering a course on it.

There was another email from a former co worker who commented they couldn't imagine me being a business owner.

I had to laugh because this clown is still stuck in his cog daytime job in the same company and same position working on a heart attack.

I don't plan to reply to either of them.

    You have unlimited potential and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Those people just hate themselves and they take it out on you. Don't take it personal.. Just feel compassion and leave them be. They are not worth you're time and energy.

    Congrats on your success!

    Thank you everyone! I truly could not have done this without this forum. I prone to depression and coming here and reading what everyone is doing is very helpful for that.


    joining the war room is a great idea. Lots of information there. Geoffs kindling program helped me get my book up there and going.

    When I come here to read and post, it is like being a part of the top secret coolest kids club haha.

    I sold a few more of the book and course yesterday so I am enjoying that. My blog traffic jumped 600%. I still need to get out there and post on other blogs and improve my marketing. I am at the kindergarten level of marketing, seo, etc. compared to you guys lol. I am learning though.

    I have calmed down about the critics. They are jealous. I'm glad my former boss didn't think I was qualified to continue to sit and rot in one of his cubes! Thank you for firing me.

    I have received postive feedback from others in my industry which is nice.

    The main thing to focus on what I am doing and keep moving forward!

    I hope I am not a jerk magnet or something.

    I had to block one of my husband's distant relatives today when she went off on me for no reason. She has said she wanted to read my blog and then 2 days later she posts on my fb saying that she thinks I am arrogant and she wanted to let me know I am not better than her. I said what is this about? She said again I was arrogant and think I'm better than her because I am college educated and she suggested I stop being so arrogant and flaunting myself on the blog. Then she proceeded to say I had a foul mouth for using the word he double tooth picks. Huh? She just kept insulting me and then I deleted her rubbish and blocked her. Huh?

        Block out all the negativity and focus on the positive. I recently heard one of my favourite marketers, Mal Emery, say that when you are onto a winner, keep backing that thing with everything. Looks like your course is a real winner. Good luck with your second project!

        No link as I am using my real name and I like to be able to talk freely here and vent if I need to. This isn't a WSO. I am just monetizing the career I have been at for 20 years.

        I will keep going with this for awhile but doubt I will stay with it long term as I do hate the industry. Working from home or creating a product hasn't changed that. I can't see myself doing this for another 20 years.

        The whole point of this is to do something you enjoy isn't it.
