Today I'm celebrating my 38th birthday, and I'm spending my day doing what I love best: traveling! I'm heading home from a fun week in Vancouver and Victoria, where I attended the Social Media Camp event - and also just had good times with good friends.
It's been a *great* trip, including a fun day at White Rock beach (left), but now I'm anxious to get home & see the people I love.
I have received some thoughtful gifts and many really nice notes - thank you for those!! - but there is one thing I want more than anything else this year...
Can You Help Me Make It An Awesome Year??
I'm not going to ask for much, I promise.
It's probably things you would already do anyway. But I could really use your help. It will take zero money and less than a minute of your time, but make a huge difference (collectively)... and mean the world to me.
Living The Dream
I often joke that while the gurus are out there poring over and split testing their big red headlines, I am out there making them true.
I make money in my sleep, literally. I travel, A LOT, and yes I make money while sipping margaritas on the beach! I have a flexible schedule, get to do what I want when I want, and have had the opportunity to raise my children (as a single parent) while still pursuing a rewarding and successful career.
I can't even begin to express the gratitude I feel for living in a time where the opportunity is so available. Not just for the lucky or the rich, but for everyone.
Even a single mother who never finished high school, didn't go to college, and didn't have a lick of credit or savings. (That was me.)
What I really want more than anything is to help more people achieve the same lifestyle I have for myself...
An opportunity to define happiness on your own terms. To live out your biggest dreams. To create the life you really want, and walk away from the one you feel stuck in - the one that holds you back.
Life is GOOD. I remember a time when it wasn't though. And I remember too, how hard I worked to change that. With no "inner circle", no mentors, no money to make things easier, and often working 14-18 hours/day.
Whatever it took to get to a better place in my life.
I want to make that transition easier for others. Not everyone, because working online or working from home isn't for everyone. But for those that desperately need or want to start a successful business or career online... I can help.
Whether you want an online business, a virtual job, or just a fun blog that earns you $2000/month in extra spending money... I can help.
Unfortunately there are tons of scams and crap out there - and that's what most people find first when they're ready to make a real change. Unfortunate indeed.
I can't tell you the number of people over the years who've said, "I wish I had found you before I ___" or "I wish I had known about your free blog & forum when I was struggling to get started."
I hear it everywhere I go, along with terrible stories of scams and frustration. It's really disheartening. We all know it's just a matter of being in the right place at the right time, knowing the right people - those that can point you in the right direction, and getting lucky enough to find the real information in a sea of junk.
So today, on my birthday, if I could make a tiny request, I would love to let you help me spread the word just a little bit farther. Collectively we can make a big difference for someone. For many someones, even.
I'm working very hard to make sure my free tutorials and getting started guides are in the right place for the right people, but I can only do so much on my own.
