There I was…sorry I cannot shed those words…Being a retired Air Force veteran…that’s signal that something exciting is coming! Lol
As a Baby Boomer too, I knew I was well on my way to successful retirement with a Defense Contracting job plus my military retirement. Yeah, right!
Then the recession hit and corporations started shedding millions of jobs…including my team and mine…NOW WHAT!…
Challenged to find work and build a new chapter in my life I began building other businesses, spending thousands of dollars, and making some costly mistakes in the process.
Then desperation hit. I knew that there had to be a better way…then it happened…
I was introduced to a great business opportunity and a way to generate cash flow and passive income! I would just have to punch a couple buttons and the money would flow in!…
I didn’t know the first thing about marketing my business and there was little education out there, which presented a major problem!
I contacted family; friends, anyone I knew, and I were getting nowhere fast!
At one point, (thanks to caller ID) my phone calls stopped being answered…Who’d a thot?!
I hired some “gurus” to get me there, those who talked a good game but really didn’t have a clue and were more interested in their bottom line than ours.
Up to this point I knew very little about the Internet…I even looked for an “Internet for Dummies” book!
I realized I needed to learn how to market myself and build my own brand
Through a friend of a friend (who was in the same spot I was 2 years earlier and now a 6 figure earner) I was introduced to a concept called attraction marketing….
Where I could position myself as the expert and actually attract people to me and be of service to them…
….Instead of putting “the Heat” on my friends with my business opportunity and losing friends in the process.
This concept and marketing system allowed me to be myself and connect with people who were actually interested in what I had to offer…
Wow, what a concept! This could just work! What do I have to lose?
With this new system, I was connecting with passionate business leaders who were incredibly successful, building massive businesses, and training others to be successful without the hard sell.
I was utilizing technology to connect me with those who were actually looking for what I was passionate about…. Rather than “pitching” a bunch of people who had never expressed an interest in joining a home based business…
Thanks to my 6 & 7 figure mentors, “who had been there done that,” I am finding ways to promote my business and products, and perhaps more importantly, helping others succeed at finding solutions for their businesses…
And I am discovering the very same tools and marketing strategies the top producing online marketers use to build huge businesses.
Mentoring me…even though I’m starting out as an Internet and Marketing Dummy! So how did this all happen?
I was shown a little video that revealed a system with “Done for You” campaigns to building your business, increasing sales, sign-ups and improving cash flow.
If you would like to see the video that shares this exciting system, CLICK HERE to check it out.
Now I know what you might be thinking, “I am too old to learn something like that!” Or… “How can I change things…I’m a retired vet…something about teaching an old dog new tricks, right…?”
I actually thought the same thing too!
But I soon realized I had a simple choice.
To either continue doing what I was doing… Which remember was spinning my wheels and was even costing some friendships…. And continue to resist this new world of social media and technology and get left behind like so many others….
…after all those that excel in this world are Grandparents and Kids!
Take the steps necessary to succeed in the digital age and regain the life I wanted.
Plus they have step by step video tutorials, fantastic support and an entire community of other people to help us along the way…
You may also be saying, “I don’t have the time to do this on top of building my business”
And again, I thought the same thing until I realized that growing a social media audience and building a list of people who were interested in learning more about what I’m offering WAS building my business!…
And creating some serious time saving leverage in the process!
I am also learning to look at myself, seeing my potential, and knowing I can learn and grow in this brave new world using these new systems and support.
And You can too!
And yes, you don’t need to be a technical genius to utilize the tools (Remember I’m an Internet and Tech Dummy).
Learn how to not only use the systems and apply them, but how to change yourself, your perceptions and see the potential you have.
Remember it is never to late to learn and clasp onto the incredible opportunity available and take action.
If you want more leads, more sales, more cash-flow in your business, comment and LEARN MORE about how to grow your business.…
I look forward to hearing from you!
