Well unfortunately she never made it to 1000 post, and that task has been left up to me, and I have been very hesitant to post anything on here, as I still had no idea what to say that would do justice to an incredible person and her journey.
Positivity a key to success:
Many people find themselves looking online to make money due to unfortunate events like losing a job, or in our case a terminal illness meaning we could no longer work a traditional 8-5 job. Cathy was the poster girl of positivity I never once heard her ask "why me?" or "if only?". Dwelling on the past is the ultimate exercise in futility if it is not done as a way to learn and better ones self.
Within the realm of trying to make money online this becomes more and more apparent as the ever changing online environment has a way handing out massive negative blows. Recent Google changes have devastated peoples businesses almost overnight. The ability to take negativity and learn from it and continue rather than having it beat you will go a long way to creating a successful business. As one starts with online marketing there can be many disheartening things happen. The smallest victories need to be given your full attention and the failures you should learn from and move on.
We often take life too seriously and having had to deal with all we did made me realize that life has so much more important things than what we spend the majority of our time doing or worrying about. Making money online has the massive incentive of giving us time and flexibility to spend with our loved ones and on the more important things in life. Make that your goal for success not riches or materialistic things that we think can make us happy, money is the means to a better life but not the goal.
