Let me first tell you a little back round story about me and why I decided to start a blog back in early 2012.
I was 29 at the time and was at the lowest point of my life. (Rock Bottom)
Lost my dream job (Making $30 per hr), sold everything I owned just to pay my bills, got a new job 4 months later, ($10 per hr) got depressed and disappointed, started drinking heavily (lead to DUI & Jail time.
My life was headed down a dead-end road at 120 mph.
I needed to make a change ASAP.
Apparently I messed up BIG time and thankfully, I was smart enough to realized and then learn and correct my mistakes so I can improve my circumstances, future and destiny.
If you do what you always did, you’ll get what you always got.
To make a long story a little shorter, I made a decision to work from home in my spare time to build a home-based internet business and make money online.
My goal was to build my home business in my spare time, working very part-time to create multiple streams of income that will surpass the income I was currently earning working full-time at my current job, so I could quit my J.O.B and work full-time on my internet business for a few years so then I can work part-time and still earn more than a full-time income.
When I first started my internet business, I knew absolutely nothing about starting or operating a successful internet business.
But I did not let that stop me.
I tried just about everything, most of the things I tried in the beginning did not work, from printing out 500 fliers and posting them on every tree, pole and stop sign in my town.
When that did not work, I put them on cars in the supermarket parking lots.
Then I started posted hundreds of posts in random Facebook groups, until they threw me in Facebook jail and almost suspended my account.
When that didn’t work. I needed to find a new strategy.
Looking back now, I was finding myself doing and trying just about everything but personally approaching strangers I did not know or without having to bug my friends and family.
After a few months of trying things that did not work, I was just about ready to give up, quit and go out and look for a better job and go on my merry little way, stressed, broke and disappointed wanting more out of life but not able to get it.
To be honest with you, over my last 3 years of building my online business, I must have quit on myself 30 times.
It’s not what you’ve been through in your life that defines who you are, it’s how you got through it that has made you the person you are today. Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you’ve ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were.
But a few days later, I realized if I don’t keep building my home business and pushing forward I was going to working at a job earning just enough not to quit and work just hard enough not to get fired.
That kept me motivated to kept me pushing forward through the tough times and easy times.
This picture below, sums it all up.
Once I realized, what I was doing was not working. I needed to find a new way.
That lead me to searching the internet for new strategies to grow my business. I found new techniques and new mentors to follow and learn from and model.
The turning point
After about 4 months of spinning my wheels and wasting my time, I finely learned what I had to do and it all made sense.
To make money online you need to do one thing and one thing only to earn commissions and that is SELLING stuff.
The secret to building a profitable home-based business is to sell things to people who want to buy them.
You need your sales message to reach the right people at the right time.
If you want to make money online, there are two options…
You are going to go out, search and find the ideal customers and persuade them to buy what you are selling or have the ideal customers coming to you ready and willing to buy what you have.
Once I realized that, everything made sense and I was more determined than ever to knock it out of the park.
How to start blogging
I am going to be totally honest with you..
The hardest part of blogging is getting it all set up.
From finding the best place to buy a domain name and how to get it hosted on the internet.
Then installing a good theme and setting up a strong foundation to build a successful blog that is going to be on the internet working for you 24/7 targeting the right people at the right time producing targeted leads and sales in your business.
