My journey into the world of Internet Marketing and Making Money Online started about 20 years ago whilst working for the UK telephone company BT.
I was leaving home to go to work at 0730 and fighting the morning traffic to arrive at work at 0845 and then spending the next 8 hours having to answer to my boss, taking a lunch break at the same time each day and being told when I can have my 2 week holiday each year, then fighting the traffic on the way back home to arrive at about 1800 each evening.
As the years passed the traffic was getting worse and it was taking longer and longer to get to my place of work and my stress levels began to rise.
My pay cheque at the end of each month was not bad, but I had no way of earning more money without working my weekends as overtime, and then only when it was available. This cut deeply into my free time.
I was like everyone else giving my time for money, but with a ceiling on the amount I could earn as there are only 24 hours in each day.
In 1994 I took early retirement from BT, the company I had worked for since leaving college. I’d had enough and decided I could no longer work for a boss and there had to be a better way.
At this time I did not go straight into marketing online but became a self employed Driving Instructor. I had always had a passion for cars and helping people. I was also heavily into Motor Sport and was competing in Stage Rallying in the UK.
My income was, however, still capped and although I was now my own boss I still had to work when my clients were available for lessons, sometimes into the late evenings.
During this time I had become increasingly aware of people running online businesses on the Internet and also seeing people supposedly making large incomes with what looked like very little effort.
Could these ‘Get Rich Quick’ systems really be a reality? I was skeptical but getting very interested.
Now fast forward a few years and I started to investigate all this ‘making money/Internet marketing’ business. I quickly became aware there was one hell of a lot of hype, Scams and miss-information around and many people advertising ways to become rich almost overnight with very little work.
Their are many roads to financial and time freedom, but one thing above all others is they will all take time and work to get off the ground. Also some financial input will need to be made.
If you were to open a shop or start any type of offline business, it would take hard work, time and money. You would need to buy a business or rent a shop etc.
We all know this – so why should it be any different online?
An online business is no different in that it will take work, time and money. However, there is a difference – when you’ve got this new online business working it can become self-sustaining to a large extent and having put in the work to get it up and running, maybe taking some 6 to 12 months, then you can have a business for life. This business will not require you to be there for 8 to 12 hours each day and you will be able to run your business from anywhere in the world where you have an internet connection. Yes, even on the beach or in a bar whilst sipping your favorite drink. You will have the “Internet Lifestyle”.
The amount that you can earn is not connected to the hours that you sit in front of your laptop, but more related to the systems that you will have put in place in your business. You now have a Global Business that works in the background 24 hours each day, 365 days each year even if you are on holiday or become ill. A business that mostly runs itself.
I remember the last few years of my school days, I was never shown ways to start my own business or become an entrepreneur but was directed like all of my peers into the world of work.
Society seems to try and keep us down and keep us from having spirit to try and break free from the normal 9-5 existence where we work for 40+ years and then retire on a small pension, looking back on life and all that we could have been.
To become an entrepreneur takes a different Mindset that seems to be suppressed in society by all the negativity that comes at us from many directions. We have been conditioned into a state of acceptance and being happy in our little comfort zone. We are just one of the crowd.
However, we have a choice, we can retrain our minds to become open to all that is possible within the world.
I believe that we all have within us the ability to be more than just one of the crowd. We have the ability to break free and release our suppressed ability to be “Awesome”!
That is what this website is all about. So read on and see how you can become more positive and create the lifestyle that you and your family truly deserve.
