It was 2 years ago that I got my pink slip Laid off in the worst economy ever. My department eliminated because the company was “too diversified” and wanted to refocus on its “core competencies”.
This Thanksgiving I’m thankful…
That I am not a statistic I’ve seen many of my colleagues STILL out of work and others start/fail or struggle with small business ownership.
I’m extremely thankful that I didn’t have to go back to a JOB. I’m thankful to have written my own success story. I created a new life for myself and my family, one I didn’t know HOW I was going to create. I just got up each day with a dogged determination that if others could do it-so could I-and I was going to figure out how to do it for me.
During the past two years, I’ve worked with clients of all shapes and sizes including:
Helping Christina start her own Virtual Assistant business while staying at home with a baby
Providing strategic guidance to Zappy as he worked to get his “Make Money with Domain Buying/Selling” system sold on infomercials and change the lives of thousands of lives by providing a blueprint for how to make money with virtual real estate
Supporting Mandy in overcoming technology challenges and adapting her coaching practice to incorporate online lead generation instead of relying solely on offline methods.
Supporting Andrew and Eileen as they sought to grow the Miami Chapter of Glaser-Kennedy Insider’s Circle faster than they ever thought possible
Inspiring Sharon to develop her own social media marketing plan for the Art Fest Fort Myers
Taking 10 small business owners businesses to new heights with my High Altitude Marketing Academy program And that’s just a tiny fraction; there are so many more stories to share.
3) I’m thankful for the ability to do hard work. Not manual labor but intellectual hard work. Every moment of everyday it takes work to juggle all the balls and keep them all spinning in the air. Since I’m a student of Dan Kennedy & Joe Vital, I fully support and believe in taking MASSIVE INSPIRED ACTION.
I’m thankful to practice what I preach. Everything I tell people to do, I’ve done first myself. I’ve mired through the muck and confusion and overwhelm everyone small business owner has and considered it a challenge to overcome and a privilege and honor to share my successes.
I’m thankful to my coaches and mentors. Like Rev. Anne, whom I’m sure you’ve heard me mention. We’re kind of co-coaches. She helps me breakthrough my unconscious roadblocks (who knew there would be so many!) and tune into my intuition (have you checked out her new coaching program? It’s killer!) And I’ve introduced her to the whole big world of information and internet marketing.
I’m thankful for business friends who hold me accountable to stepping into the incredible power I’ve been holding back. Thanks Rob, Alex, Andrew, Eileen, Vince, and Dave. Because I’m accountable to them, you’re going to see a lot more from me starting now. I’m back to embracing my entire depth of knowledge in the lead generation and direct response marketing industry as well as previous experience strategically building small businesses.
I’m thankful for YOU. (yes I was saving the best for last ) My very first tweet, blog post status update email newsletter was read by just my Pomeranian Penelope (check her out on Facebook) and a few of my close friends.
I can say I actually have Fans (Shout out to Lane for introducing Bill to me! Another shout to Barbara & Eleanor for all the Facebook ‘likes’) who make each post, tweet, and offering something special I share with you. Thank you for your loyalty and your time.
With so much to be grateful for, I have one small favor to ask of you…
Will You Help ME Help YOU?
I’m on a mission to help 2,011 entrepreneurs explode their businesses in 2011. Could you be one of them?
If you’re looking to
Do what you love but struggling with marketing yourself, generating a steady stream of high paying clients, likes Rev Anne…
Take your business to the next level by diversifying your lead generation portfolio, like Andrew…
Become a certified Lead Generation Virtual Assistant, and work at home on your own terms,like Christina…
Overcome your technology challenges and become a masters of internet marketing like Eileen and Mandy
Outsource your social media marketing so that you are seen everywhere all the time by clients and prospects, like Rich…
If you are nodding your head at any of the above statements, then we should talk more. I guarantee you that if any of the people above can do it, YOU can do it.
I want you to think about something for a second…
You probably know how to drive a car, right?
Or you know someone who does. Did you learn how to drive by opening up the owner’s manual and reading a bunch of facts?
Of course not
Did you learn from trial and error? (This makes me crash the car, this doesn’t make me crash the car…) Of course not!!
Then why is that the way you’re trying to get internet marketing (including social media) figured out?
