A Crazy Shower Experience

May 31, 2012

2 Comments

 In today’s video, I am going to get a bit intimate.  That’s right…

I’m going to share an experience I had in a hotel shower that I will never forget.

This lesson is all about expectations.  In life and in business, many of the emotions we experience are a direct result of the expectations we have about certain events, people, or tasks.

This story is about a little historic hotel in Ely, Nevada named Hotel Nevada, where I had a shower that I won’t soon forget! Check it out!


 

If you enjoyed this story or think that a friend could benefit from the lesson I shared, please SHARE this video.  Have you had a similar expectation that was exceeded?  If so, I’d love to hear it, so please comment below!

Winning Life’s Great Balancing Act

May 28, 2012

5 Comments

Unlike Rich, who showed signs of being an entrepreneur at the tender age of 9, I never knew I had an entrepreneurial bone in my body until I was 26.

Since that time, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to truly succeed as an Internet entrepreneur.  One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned along the way is about the power of choices.

When I was young, I used to love reading Choose Your Own Adventure books.

In case you didn’t have the good fortune to read these books… as you read the story, you are given choices—for option 1, you turn to page 7 and for option 2, you turn to page 9, then you get to the bottom of that page and you’re given 2 or 3 more choices….

Every story is different because of the numerous choices that you get to make as the reader.

I’ve found that my life over the past nearly 6 years has been quite similar to a Choose Your Own Adventure book, especially since I’ve been pursuing my entrepreneurial ambitions while practicing law full-time.

I know there are many of you out there that are doing the juggling act that I’ve been doing over the years, and some of you have kids on top of a full-time job and your business.  Even if you don’t fall into this category, this lesson is universal, so listen up! ; )

Every single day you are presented with a multitude of choices.  Each choice you make takes you one step closer or one step further away from your entrepreneurial goals.

For example, if you’ve just completed a course on, say, blogging.  You then have a choice:

A.  Implement what you just learned

B.  Buy another course (Hey, you need to be an expert before you get started, right?)

C.  Watch TV/Visit with friends/Re-organize your sock drawer, etc. (“I’ll get back “on track” next week/month/year”)

D. Quit (“hey, this entrepreneur stuff is too hard!”)

Over the years, I’ve seen about 10% choose Option D.  60% of people choose Option C, and another 20% choose Option B.  Amazing only a tiny 10% choose Option A.

Guess who is making 99% of the money?

The people who choose Option A.

Why don’t more people choose Option A?

I really don’t know…. some may be deterred by that pesky monkey on their shoulder that tells them that they aren’t good enough to get started.

(My suggestion— kick that stupid monkey to the curb!)

Others simply lack the discipline necessary.  They fall prey to the “hype” in our industry that says you can make money with no effort.

(That’s all that is, by the way, hype!)

The truth of the matter is that it takes hard work and a lot of self-discipline to succeed as an Internet entrepreneur.

Presumably you started down the entrepreneurial path in order to reach a goal or achieve a dream, right?

So let me ask you a simple question…

Are Your Dreams/Goals Worth It?

If the answer to that question is “Yes!” then continue reading…

Our answer to that question is a resounding “YES!”

Rich and I have foregone many a social outing or trip just to work on our business. It’s why we are getting the results that we are. Regardless of what anyone tells you- when you’re just starting out, you can’t sit on the beach 24/7 and generate over 10,000 leads and become a top affiliate like we have.

It takes discipline and sacrifice.

But it’s sacrifice for the greater good…. every social outing I forego to work on our business means that another group of entrepreneurs is going to be equipped to reach their goals.  The more entrepreneurs that we help reach their goals, the closer we are to reaching our own.

Every TV show I miss, means that we are that much closer to living the dream lifestyle of building our online empire while travelling the world.

(Yes, I did say online empire—we’ve got enormous plans!) ; )

Your entrepreneurial future is truly in your hands and no one else’s.  With each decision you make, do a little “check” and ask yourself:

“Is this going to take me one step closer or one step further away from my goals”?

and then ask yourself

“Am I OK with that result?”

I ran across an amazing video recently that sums up this article perfectly.  Have a look and if you know of someone who could benefit from this article, please share it.

We Spent $4,138.58 On Advertising In March (Inside Scoop)

May 24, 2012

0 Comments

Ok, this video is something I wouldn’t normally share with anyone other than our private coaching clients, but I know that a lot of people are really hungry for the real scoop on how they can scale up their business through paid advertising without running up huge credit card bills, tapping into their savings or even worse, their retirement accounts.

If you’re brand new to the idea of building your business using the Internet, I command you to leave this post immediately and go wander around the Internet searching for answers for the next four years, then you should come back here and watch this video.

Now, this is the part where I say I’m just joking…ha ha, right? Uh, wrong! I mean it, get outta here so you can take the long windy road to success like we did. It’s simply not acceptable to me that you are so lucky to have stumbled upon this video that can potentially shave off years from your learning curve just by grasping the powerful concept in this video.

Now, if you’ve spent a respectable amount of time (6 months+) in front of your computer for 16 hours a day learning and implementing every lead generation strategy known to man, and you still have no idea how you’ll ever get to 50 leads a day, then you’re welcome to proceed to the next level of awareness by clicking on the play button below…trespassers will be prosecuted.

It’s important to mention that the sales numbers I shared in this video are just from our marketing efforts alone. They do not include any affiliate traffic or joint venture deal that we we put together. I’m pointing out this distinction because almost all of the time that you see people talking about how they did “$X” in two days, the number they provide is the sales number, while they conveniently leave out the fact that 50% or more of that money is going to be paid to someone else.

The reason I’m sharing this information is to demonstrate the power of having a properly crafted marketing funnel combined with your own products and services. This is the secret sauce that creates the “unfair advantage” for some online and is the only true way to earn 100% commissions on your efforts.

Why Your Blog Makes You No Money

Okay, awhile back I bought a Bamboo Pen. If you don’t know what I’m talking about it’s a tool that allows you to write or draw on your computer screen while you’re doing videos or webinars.

Pretty cool, but when I got it I was using a PC and had no problems with it. Then we got an iMac and I haven’t found a great way to get it to work without using an additional app, which is a pain.

I just shot this video while I was testing out Bamboo with an app called OmniDazzle…if you know of a better way to do this with an iMac, I’d love to hear it, so leave a comment below.

A Cure For Information Overload

May 10, 2012

0 Comments

Are you feeling overloaded with information?

If you are, it’s totally natural, especially if you’re brand new to marketing.  Learning how to market online is a skill, just like practicing law, practicing medicine, sales, financial planning, etc.

If you decided that you wanted to become a lawyer, you know that you would have to go to school for 3 years.  Then you would spend years fine-tuning your skills.

If you decided that you wanted to be a financial planner, you would expect that you would need to study (and likely pass several tests).

Yet, for some odd reason, since the Internet is so “informal,” people think that they can learn how to successfully generate targeted leads online in a matter of months. If that’s you, I hate to break it to you….

Attraction marketing is MARKETING.

There are numerous strategies and basic principles that you must learn and implement properly in order to create a substantial income online.

You can get a lot of great information through courses that you purchase online.  But, there’s one thing that every successful marketer has (and not many talk about it) that helps shorten their learning curve and take their business to the next level…

A Coach (or Consultant).

The reason is simple.

As you begin to apply what you learn through your training courses, there are several lessons that those who have experience, have learned.

A coach/consultant can help you discover these problem areas and help you tweak them, before you waste time going down a rabbit trail in the wrong direction.

That’s why I firmly believe that if you are truly serious about building an income online, you must hire a coach/consultant to help you get off on the right foot, or ensure that you are headed in the right direction, even if you’ve been marketing online for years.

This is probably the most important investment you’ll ever make.

So what’s the difference between a Coach and a Consultant? 

This is a common question.  When people ask what I do… I jokingly say that I’m a COACHULTANT.

When it comes to issues of personal development, defining a niche, defining a Unique Selling Proposition- I’m more of a “coach”.

I help my clients “dig deep” to cultivate their unique identity, the root of any perceived road blocks, their true passions.

When it comes to creating and implementing a marketing strategy that incorporates their “authentic self,” their skill-set, and their target market, I take on a “consultant” role as needed, in order to ensure that my clients are not going down a dead-end road with their marketing plan or website.

In addition to a coach/consultant, I often find myself mentoring my clients as well.   I am their cheerleader, and the voice of reason….especially when it comes to keeping them protected from…

Shiny Object Syndrome

That is, the urge to buy every new course that comes out, in the “hopes” that it will be the “magic bullet” that turns their computer automatically into an ATM.

What To Look For In Hiring a Coach/Consultant

You’re in luck! There are a lot of people offering coaching and consulting services in the areas of attraction marketing. The challenge is sifting the truly experienced coaches/consultants from the “posers.”

One of the biggest thing that you should look for is Testimonials.  See what their clients have to say about their experience.

You should also look to see that the coach/consultant has expertise in the areas you are looking for help with.

There are coaches/consultants that focus in a variety of areas in this industry:  mindset, niche, branding, blogging, copywriting, pay-per-click, sales, etc.

When in doubt, ask for referrals!

Now, I know that you’re wondering…..Natasha, are you offering coaching/consulting?

The answer is yes, sort of.
