I absolutely love my lifestyle.
While all the gurus are sitting in their basement offices in their bathrobes, crafting those big red headlines... I'm out there making them all true.
I flew to Florida to spend the day on the beach at Okaloosa Island, for Willie Crawford's annual beach meet-up. I had a great day with friends - with lots of laughs, fun conversation and great food. It was a very laid back casual meet-up, and I'll definitely be going again in the future!
I flew in that morning, and flew back home the next morning. The cool thing is that the entire day I was hanging out with friends on the beach... I was making affiliate sales online across multiple sites. That's passive income at it's best.
I wake up every day grateful for the opportunity to work online, and create a lifestyle that allows me to fly to Australia for the weekend on a whim, or spend ~$700 just to fly down to the beach for a day.
This opportunity is not available just for the rich or the lucky. I was broke and seriously UNlucky when I got started. If this is the lifestyle you want, and you're having a hard time achieving it, I would love to help you get to the next step.
Speaking of, when I arrived in Florida I took a cab from the airport to my hotel. The driver, John, was a nice fellow and I was the only one in the cab, so we had a nice conversation on the way. It turns out he's from Tennessee too.
I asked him how he ended up in Florida, and he proceeded to tell me the short version of his life story - or at least the more recent bits, 2004 to present.
The story made me sad, and it really stuck with me.
I pondered on that while staring out the window at the beautiful beaches, still listening to him, and thought of the chain of events in my own past. Life just happens, doesn't it? And it's not always so kind...
I used to wonder if things would ever let up, or if I was just going to continue to spiral downward from where I was. I always think back to this one particular phase of my life where I was broke, angry, frustrated, desperate and scared.
It was a hard time. I think it was the anger that got me out of it, pushing me to work 14-18 hours a day 7 days a week to "beat it". And I didn't give up until I did.
I often wonder where the difference lies between those that accept life as it is, and those that get mad and refuse to stay stuck where they are...
At any rate, it really made me appreciate the hard times I went through to get where I am today - because I truly believe it was the hard times that got me here.
Would you like me to help you reach your goals?
No matter where you are with your online business, whether you're just getting started or already turning a consistent profit, you're probably looking to put things on the fast track - or take it to the next level.
That can be difficult to do alone, without feedback or the support of a peer network. I know, because I've tried it both ways. My business really took off when I started creating a peer group, and having accountability partners.
I'd like to offer that to you...
The best way for us to work together is through my Private Brainstorming Group. We meet on the ClickNewz Forum, in the private area, and also have two webinar sessions every week where we do live brainstorming and member site reviews.
All you have to do is register at the forum, if you haven't already, and then upgrade to Elite Member through your user admin panel - or using the link in the Private Brainstorming Group area.
I would love to see you there.
I hope you enjoyed the photos. I had such a great time! And on top of catching up with good friends, I came home feeling inspired and motivated - with some cool new ideas to work with. Including a new domain & niche to dive into this week!
