My topic today relates to what I learnt this weekend at the “Don’t be a wussy” event in Denver. As promised to you, I will try to relay the knowledge I gained form you this week.
First of all, did you check out the blog post yesterday? If not, stop reading right NOW and go look at it. It’s important you take that step before anything else. You can find yesterday’s blog post HERE.
So… if you read yesterday’s post we can begin with the next step!
Vick Strizheus, my mentor and creator of Big Idea Mastermind, is the guy who taught me what I am about to teach you. I have actually been doing part of this for maybe 7 months now. However, just hearing him explain it all again in person made me grasp the importance of it even more. And I have tweaked my approach to this since then.
A lot of people get frustrated when they don’t see results overnight. They join an internet marketing business and think that they are going to wake up rich the next day. Well, they are in for a huge disappointment. Internet marketing is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme. Just like any other business it takes time to build up. You need to invest some time and money into it for it to become the full time(but flexible and fun) career it can be. With full time I mean it can be your ONLY income if you apply the information and training you get properly. Top Earners use about 2-4 hours per day on their business. That’s it. NO, stop it! Don’t for a second think that they are any different from you. YOU CAN BE JUST AS SUCCESSFUL! We all start from the same point. From scratch. We all have to learn how to become successful individually. Luckily, within the Big Idea Mastermind network we are all extremely excited when we can be of assistance to others. If you are brand new to internet marketing – we are there with massive support to help you succeed.
We want to see each and one of our team members be successful internet marketers that can choose for themselves exactly how they want to spend their time and their life. That’s what we are here for! We fulfill dreams!
To start your own business online – all you need to begin is $25 for Big Idea Mastermind/Empower Network. $25 – if you “can’t afford it”, this is nothing for you. There is ALWAYS a way to make something happen if you want it enough. If your desire and dreams are strong enough. $25 equals a big lunch or a night at the movie theatre. It just comes down to priorities.
If you create your own online business – yes you have to work on it and build it up like any other serious business – but you will eventually be able to live life on your own terms.. and isn’t that what we all really want?
OK, sorry – I lost track here for a minute.. Back to the “lesson” of today..
Now, Vick has been extremely successful with his internet marketing career. He has been working on this for about eight years now, seven of which have been very successful. If you are going to listen to any advice from anyone within this field – with him is a great place to start.
This weekend he gave us his very own recipe for success with internet marketing:
1. READ daily – at least 30 minutes reading and 30 minutes listening to someone:
– What?: books ton the subject of personal development are recommended (This could be of Napoleon Hill, James Allen, Dale Carnegie, Maxwell Maltz, Zig Ziglar). You can also listen on audio books and/or watch videos on youtube etc within the topics you are trying to progress. If you are a member of EN/BIM you get loads of valuable training in your back office.
-Why? If you want to be successful in ANYTHING you have to work on yourself, know what you want and make clear intentions. Know how to work with your mind to make it work for you.
2. Spend 1-2 hours EACH DAY where you research your field. Shut off all Facebook, chats, phone etc and only work on research for what you are trying to do. If this is internet marketing – use search engines, blogs, youtube, pinterest, stumble upon etc to look for new ways to market your business.
-Why? This is how you can unlock your own tools for promoting your business. Find something that everyone else isn’t using. Use your creativity and create something new!
3. Apply what you learned. Use what you learned in the previous hours that day. If it’s some new knowledge from reading or listening to others – write a blog post about… or make a list or schedule(or whatever you may have learnt.. use it!). If it’s new traffic source – try it! PS. always start SMALL SCALE on new traffic sources – make sure they are effective and actually convert before you scale it up.
Finally – BE CONSISTENT! Keep working on this every day. Don’t take a break and don’t give up. As mentioned before, building a successful business takes more than one night.
Don’t you want a business you can have for the rest of your life?
Don’t you want to make your own hours and spend more time with the family?
Don’t you want to cut down work to about 2-3 hours per day and make more money than you do today?
Don’t you want to travel the world and live life NOW?
If this is what you want – Big Idea Mastermind can help YOU! You can get rid of any financial troubles you may have, you can achieve your deepest goals in life – but you have to be willing to take this as the serious business it is.
