My Exciting & bumpy Life Story
June -15 -2013
For most people, transitioning from the “real” world to a world they designed is a chasm most may never cross.
In the beginning, I was still learning and I lost significant amount of money. So I can handle it, I took a different viewpoint. I believed I was paying a price for what I wanted, and I needed to pay my dues to go to the next level.
Life Without some Challenges Is A No Life
Of course, like most people, I went through my share of being exposed to scammers and people who had subpar understanding of marketing. This beast drained me of countless hours and money.
But, from such lesson, I learned that I will either learn what to do, or what not to do. Hence, I learned understanding, patience, and tolerance . I learned quickly though, because I started to see what I should not be doing.
Magic In Reality Is Only A Disillusion
Unfortunately, almost everyone is looking for some type of “magic” involved. But the truth is I can only attribute “evolution”, not magic, as being the main key to sales and marketing success.
If you can learn how to grow bigger than your problems and sincerely master the skill of “getting out of your own way”, you’ll soon discover the path you need, for your life, to get to the next level in your sales and marketing efforts.
To getting out of your own way, to me, simply means swallowing your pride and reducing your ego to let other people assist you. But why not receive more from people who want to coach and mentor- being humble and patient enough to see the path that awaits you.
Here’s a quick formula I’ve used over the years that has helped me.
1. Be something!
In order for anyone to “be” something, you have to clearly define it. and In this case,
- What is a marketer?
- What is a salesperson?
- What are sales?
- Have you used the dictionary to clearly define it? Once you clearly define what you want to “be”, on to the next step.
2. Now Do
When you clearly have defined what you want to be, then you have to do. It’s not that easy, as most people don’t understand how much Herculean effort it takes to “get things done” and “make things happen.” Perform. Execute. Accomplish, based on executing through correct knowledge.
Knowledge by itself isn’t power- correct knowledge executed upon is the power!
3. Now Have
Having is the by-product of clearly defining who you want to be and executing flawlessly on correct knowledge. Only then will you start unlocking the gates to your kingdom. Having is an effect: the cause is being who you need to be, to do what you have to do, and to have what you want to have.
Living your life as you define it. Having your success as you know it.
Little More About Me
A waiter for 12 long years
I Started a direct marketing career life in 1994 after serving as a waiter for 12 long years. I truly never liked that waiter thing!… It got me nowhere! Working as long as 10 hours a day and 6 days a week… Bringing in money that hardly paid for my basic needs!
I knew I have to search for something else
searching for another career can really take its tall emotionally and physically. So I started the long search and realized how hard life can be. I ran into storms of scams and bogus claims….
Just like many of us I Bought every piece of junk every time to thinking this is the real magic now only to find out that this new scam is worst than the previous ones ! I almost lost my shirt and my mind too!
In 1994 as I was listening to a TV show for Brad Richdale, a pioneer in direct marketing , I decided to pay the initial $39 for the program .
I received his initial starter kit that wasn’t much more than a little booklet and a cassette tape. He asked for another $275 for a premium membership and to be included in one of his advertising promotions he was conducting for a month period.
It sounded very good but I really did not have the $275. I was fully determined to leave that GLOOMY WAITER JOB! I had to come up with something and very fast to make it through the promotion.
Always- success comes with patience
I did a very successful direct mail marketing campaigns afterwards and by 2006 I had a total of 3 gift shops I invested in with another partner, and so far I was doing very well since ever then! no more waiting on tables or poor days! until hurricane Sandy came and too everything with it.
I lost everything all over again, and again I was in the hunt for something online this time as this is the easiest way to run a business if you can get successful. Everything like this needs work and dedication, you must also be committed and determined.
I was very cautious this time as I learnt my lessons from the previous times. As I was diligently searching the internet, I magically landed on this breathtaking opportunity that is called Wealthy Affiliate which requires the following….
- Zero money to invest!….
- Zero money to train!..
- Zero money for 2 websites!…
- Zero money for hosting!..
- Zero money for a 24 hour support.
- And many more beyond mentioning.
I’m doing very well as you can see, I managed to build 12 websites since I joined in April of 2013 promoting many affiliate programs like Amazon, Groupons, Google AdSense, HP computers and many more.
I really knew nothing about online marketing or building websites, this is the amazing thing- see for yourself what I’m able to do in such short period of time.
