Yes, there is more to (business) life than this…
I didn’t start out knowing a lot about business, or money or marketing. In fact, far from it.
I first dipped my toe into entrepreneurial waters around 2006 when I started to feel restless in different jobs I had. Something wasn’t quite right because I just wasn’t feeling happy or fulfilled in any of those jobs. It finally dawned on me that the problem wasn’t necessarily the jobs themselves, but the fact that I just wasn’t satisfied working for someone else.
So, I started seeking out different opportunities on the side. I dabbled in several different side gigs and the common thread was a desire to create—to take an idea, a passion—and bring it to fruition, helping lots of people and making a good income for myself along the way.
As I continued to dabble, I became painfully aware of how big of a role marketing played in keeping a solo business afloat. The rough translation being, you can’t make any money if no one knows you exist! I realized it wasn’t enough to just be good at your craft, at “the thing” you do; you had to get the word out about yourself in a big way.
Unfortunately, I didn’t relish the idea of running all over town going to networking meeting after networking meeting—nor shelling out big bucks on traditional advertising or PR services. When it came down to it, I thought, “There has to be a better way.”
Meanwhile, being the avid web surfer I was, I began noticing that more and more entrepreneurs were using the Internet to market themselves and their businesses. To me, the opportunities I saw for a business owner to expand their reach literally around the globe via the Internet were astounding. I was already comfortable with the technology, so I began to immerse myself in learning the leveraged online marketing techniques I was seeing so many of them using successfully.
Around the same time, there started to be a buzz around this “thing” called social media. I was drawn to how it could be used to connect to all of these potential clients and customers—in a very natural and authentic way. You didn’t need to feel like a pushy used car salesman while doing it!
As I used it to market my own part-time entrepreneurial endeavors, I discovered I also had a real knack for helping others simplify and implement social media as a strategy, to get the word out about themselves and their businesses in an effective, leveraged way. Because so many entrepreneurs struggle with marketing, I realized there was a real need to teach these techniques.
A Defining Moment
Then, in the depths of the recession, I ended up getting laid off from my job. I took that as my opportunity to hang out my “virtual shingle” as a full-time entrepreneur. Having always had a job, I was unsure and anxious about losing the “security” of a paycheck, but, I was determined to build a successful and sustainable business of my own.
My fear turned to nervous excitement because I knew there was no turning back. I decided to learn as much as I could about building a successful and sustainable business online, and my goal was to make a really good income without the commute, the lack of control and the lack of true financial opportunity associated with most jobs.
For me, the bottom line was, I HAD to make it work. In the beginning I fumbled around trying to figure it all out myself, and it was lonely. I finally began seeking out mentors. That search led me to several people who each taught me an incredible amount about personal development, business success, and marketing.
I studied, soaked up knowledge like a sponge, and began implementing. I started a blog and began writing an email newsletter and telling people about that–and a funny thing started happening. People started seeing me as someone who was social media savvy, and online marketing savvy… essentially, an expert. People I was connecting with in social media began subscribing to my newsletter and asking if I could help them market their own businesses the same way. As word of mouth kept spreading, things began to take off.
I was growing my little consulting business by leaps and bounds with online marketing and social media strategies—and selling products, services and programs successfully online–and people were taking notice and constantly asking me what it was that I was doing. Because I knew I could map it out and help others achieve the same results I had–I decided to create a step-by-step system for consistently bringing in new clients and customers using the Internet and social media. That “roadmap” ended up becoming one of my now best-selling products, The Get Clients Online Home Study System.
People loved the content of that system and started to ask for even more personalized help from me to implement what they were learning, and I began working with private clients in a coaching capacity. Today, the work that I do with my clients and students is focused on helping them stand out as a go-to leader and expert in their field through the power of leveraged, authentic marketing and mindset strategies.
