Before you go & waste your money on another business product, service or training….
I have personally invested well over $50,000 in internet marketing training, conferences, e-courses and group coaching. Nice chunk of change huh?!
The people closest to me….many people in my family, acquaintances and possibly even close friends would have ‘shaked their heads’ at me in bewilderment (or disbelief)…..while certain people in my family and extended family would have almost certainly ‘shamed me’ for doing so….. had they known about it.
I have a personal rule though. I don’t tell people who I know won’t understand.
It’s very simple. Don’t go to people for support and advice who can’t think ‘outside the box’, who believe that they are limited by circumstance, swear by their own excuses and don’t take risks in their own life.
Think about it.
If they aren’t taking risks, they aren’t going to support you to do that!
If you were to invest as much money as I did on something as totally intangible as ‘your personal growth’, what would the people around you say?
Isn’t it interesting how those same people would support you to go into to debt for a degree (even though there is no guarantee of a job)?
It is all about paradigms!
Any way you slice it, if you want to keep growing, expanding and manifesting your dreams, you are going to have to invest in learning new skills and elevating your mindset – so that you can be the person who does what it takes to be successful.
So do you want to do what THEY want you to do? Be a slave to ‘the man’. Choose a path that looks secure, but then give up your creativity and time?
Of course not!
Do you want to suppress your dreams, for security and so that you can stockpile ‘stuff’ with your biweekly paycheque?
Not a chance!
The best ‘retail therapy’ can’t compare to the sense of pride and accomplishment you’ll feel, being able to generate the lifestyle you want – just from being you, sharing your passions and helping others with your experience!
If the people around you don’t support your dreams and are not passionately pursuing theirs, it might be time for new friends (or a new partner).
It is scary walking away from friendships, relationships and situations that offer comfort, but not growth.
But your life is literally at stake here.
Without progress, your life is not at a stand still (as you may think).
It is actually oscillating in a downward spiral.
If you are not growing, you are dying.
The first time I made the decision to invest money in learning how to properly create a business, I was living month-to-month, I had no savings and not a cent available on my credit card.
It was a group coaching style e-course available for $4000.
But I made the decision anyway that I was going to get the help I knew deep in my heart that I wanted and needed – hell or high water!
And just before the EARLY BIRD ended, I kid you not, I got a letter from my credit card company telling me that I was being given an extra $1000 credit!
I had never even thought to call them and ask.
That additional credit allowed me to secure my spot in the training with a $697 deposit to hold my space!
OMG! It felt like a miracle. But actually it was just a decision.
What have you been telling yourself that you want but can’t afford?
Let me let you in on a little secret.
The reason you don’t have the money is because you haven’t decided.
Because if you haven’t decided hell or high water, you don’t need the money yet.
That’s why it has not shown up yet!
When you decide, then you’ll be able to find the money.
Honestly though, if the money hadn’t shown up so quickly, I would have gone to the bank and got a loan or asked a relative for money, whatever…I wasn’t proud.
I had already decided.
I just knew that there was ‘shit’ I didn’t know and I needed to know it or there was no point in spending a truck load of time building a business that wasn’t going to work – because effectively, I just didn’t know what i was doing.
Back then I was a business idea machine, but that doesn’t mean I knew how to actually run a successful business!
But by this point in the game, I had already failed to figure it out on my own.
I launched my first business at the age of 25. It was a natural mom and baby retail store that went bankrupt in the first year – after spending over $50,000 on graphic design and marketing ads.
Holy shit balls!
Never spend money on those things when you don’t yet have clarity, and a plan.
You have to make something ‘marketable’ by turning into a system or formula, before you spend money on marketing it!!
By the way, Beth and I share how you can do that in the ‘Sexy Signature System’ video we’ve included in this instant access 4 part FREE e-course.
So before you go and waste your money on Internet marketing courses, please understand that you need to develop your offer or service first – make it something that can actually be marketed.
Otherwise you are throwing your money down the drain.
That’s why we created this FREE e-course training, to get you started off on the right foot in your business.
So which $50, 000 do you think I regret spending?
On the courses I took or the pre-mature graphic design and marketing?
Obviously, I regret spending money on the graphic design and ads.
When I purchased e-coaching, e-courses, private coaching packages – well those were investments.
It is knowledge that I continue to use to make WAY more money. It keeps paying me back month after month, year after year!
The knowledge no one can take from me.
Whereas the graphic design and the ad spend, quickly became an expense. The minute I spent the money it was gone, because I didn’t have the knowledge I needed to make those beautifully designed posters, website and ads actually attract business!
So how about you?
Have you been spending money on your business or investing in yourself?
If you want to know more about how to do the right things, in the right order in your business — so that you can set yourself up for success, instead of throwing money down the drain or worse, going bankrupt from a lack of business know how (like I did), then you’ll want to join this FREE training today — AND if what we share resonates with you, take advantage of the EARLY BIRD savings of $1000 on the Business Model Makeover to get the right knowledge, support and help you need for where you are ACTUALLY at in your business!
Do you want to know what really pushed me over the edge when I was thinking about taking my first business training?
It was the realization that if I didn’t believe in myself to be able to generate a few extra dollars in my business to pay my coaching fees, well then – why bother even working on the business if I wasn’t actually planning to make money!
Do you see that?
When you tell yourself you can’t afford it, it is because you can’t see yourself taking what you learn and being successful with it.
You are holding in mind that you are just going to take the program, enjoy learning and not actually do anything with it!!
So what is the real issue.
No money or no confidence in yourself?
Well we can help you generate both.
