If you are hesitant about attending events or masterminds, then let me share with you some of the business and life lessons I have learnt from attending masterminds and events. 2015 was the year were my business moved to the next level. The first event I attended was in March 2015, a couple of months after that, my business was booming. I won’t be specific with the event’s details or locations as that is not relevant to this post. What matters is what I got out of each event -and what you too can get- if you make the decision to attend these events.
Before I continue, I would like to add that the number of strategies and skills I’ve learnt plus the value I have gotten and the fantastic people I have met is SO big that I could easily spend a few years of my life describing them all here :P. Each of them have been equally important. For the purpose of this post I will only be mentioning the aspects of the events that touched me the most and which have remained with me up until now.
Can you guess whereabouts is this?
Visiting your dream place: This may not sound very business-related, but in a few words: ‘If you are in your happy place, you can happily do business‘. The comfort of your hammock atmosphere around you sets such a mood that doing business gets really smooth even if you have to deal with a glitch that has turned into your worst capture page nightmare. By attending a mastermind/event that is hosted at one of your dream destinations, you have the opportunity to go around and discover it after the event. I visited this special place for the first time and had an amazing time there. First at an exclusive resort – all included- and then by renting our own gorgeous house. This exotic location is magical and I can say that it is my favourite getaway destination in the world. The time I spent there was of spiritual healing, recharging, forgiving and letting go. So If I was able to visit one of my dream destination while doing business, you can too! After all, you never will never know the effect a certain place place will have on you unless you get there and discover it.
Meeting like-minded people: By attending events and masterminds, you also meet amazing humble, smart and fun people. I’m talking about the kind of people that you have just met but it feels like you’ve known them for a lifetime. Strangers that become your friends and family. People who inspires you, motivates you, helps you break free from your own paradigms and makes you realize that ‘heck yeah!, I can totally do this!‘ because these people have already walked the path you are walking and can help you overcome struggle, or give you some epic tips to avoid getting them on your way. Now, depending of the type of event you attend, you can also have breakthroughs. The lessons I’ve learnt have allowed me to have many breakthroughs during this time, and these happened at random conversations with some of the best kick-ass entrepreneurs, at the time I’m sure they didn’t even know the influence and power of their words in my life. Well, months later I have decided to share these lessons with you.
Lesson #1 – ‘Forgive Yourself’
I would say that a very important person who helped me have a major breakthrough during this phase of my life was Brent Payne, CEO of VIM. If you know my story, you know that I was a workaholic, career-focused Medical Doctor working crazy hours and then one day, snap! my mom passed away. It hit me, I let precious moments with mom slip through my fingers. In order to get a better understanding of this breakthrough, watch the video below… This is a very VERY personal video –Thank you sis Regina for capturing this golden moment <3 – and I find it a bit difficult to share it here but I know that if you are on a similar situation the one I was in and you too have someone very important in your life like you children, your dad, your partner, or whoever means the world to you with whom you want to spend valuable time with, this video will help you. So here I am sharing my vulnerability and strengths with you.
For about two years I felt guilty for being at work most of the time rather than with my mom. That guilt was stopping me from achieving my maximum potential as a business owner and it wasn’t until that moment with Brent, when I had an unexpected breakthrough in front of about 100 people. Suddenly, it felt like a whole load was taken out of my back. Today, I know for sure that this moment was crucial. Before closing this lesson I have to share with you an application that I’ve used, that has also helped me with my own personal development and my business productivity. This application is called VIM, a user-friendly and highly effective application co-created by Brent. Brent, thank you from the bottom of my heart <3.
Lesson #2: ‘Let go’
I spent a decent amount of time talking to one of the most successful online entrepreneurs: David Wood. Having the chance to talk to him one-on-one at one of our parties, at the 16’000 sqft mansion we were staying, was another EPIC moment I got from attending events. We didn’t spoke about landing pages, conversion rates or business strategies. We spoke about life. This conversation allowed me to see beyond the ‘man on the screen’. David Wood is one of the most humble, kind-hearted, kick-ass and smart-ass people I’ve ever met and this is what I can share with you from our conversation: “You need to let go. You need to let go. JUST Let go“. Yes, it is a simple phrase yet a powerful one that can also help you. Let go of whatever it is that is holding you back, no matter what happened in the past. Your time is too precious to live in regret or wonder. Just let go and focus on the present moment. David Wood, thank you.
Lesson #3 – ‘Give and Forgive’
Chatting with my Unstoppable Momma – Rhonda Swan is like listening to a life and business encyclopaedia while getting shots of energy, fun and life. She is totally badass! Always spot on, energetic, full of life and business focused with a MASSIVE heart of gold. She knows what she wants and she gets it! –If you know her, you know what I’m talking about, If you don’t (yet) then trust me, you better do– Rhonda has also been (still is!) a very important role model in my life, from her I have learnt many many powerful lessons. Two of those are:
Unstopapble Momma lesson #1 – Life: “In order to give, you need to forgive. Give and forgive” Forgive what happened in the past, let it go, it was part of a process, embrace it and set it free. (this connects directly with the previous lesson). Then, give give give, love, give, help. Forgiving and giving is your best medicine.
Unstoppable Momma lesson#2 – Business: “Structure gives you freedom” By that time, I’ve had heard the classic “organize your day, plan your day ahead, set you DMO (Daily Method of Operation)” but when we were talking, listening to her it was like all the dots connected and suddenly it all made sense. “Structure gives you freedom”, by organizing your day and dedicating a specific amount of time to certain business tasks, you get more time to chill out, go out, have fun or do other things you also love!. Rhonda, my Unstoppable Momma, is a co-founder of the Freedom-Preneur Movement. A movement that has set the foundation of my entrepreneurial life and where I’ve learnt most of the business skills I have now. If you want to meet her, then I suggest you go ahead and visit our Freedom-Preneur Movement now, especially if you are not sure where to start in your business or you are an aspiring entrepreneur struggling online. Rhonda, thanks Momma :)!
Lesson # 4 – ‘It’s not about you, it’s about the people’
This phrase was KEY to my business so thank you Paulo B., a kind-hearted, humble, genuine person and friend. The main message of this phrase applies to you if you are in business or in sales. Forget about the sale, it is not about you making a sale for the sake of it, it is about the people you are talking to and how you can help them with what you have. The sales are only a result of your help. Of course, it is vital that you genuinely BELIEVE in your offer and that you act with integrity.
Lesson #5 – ‘Sell to help’
Before Joannie’s presentation at the mastermind, I was against selling and struggled with it because I hated when people pitched an opportunity at me. Being the person I am, I can’t even pretend to do the same to others. But after hearing her presentation on selling, my perspective about selling totally – and I mean TOTALLY – changed. If you believe in your product, if it resonates with you, if you KNOW that your product is of value and it genuinely helps people. Then you have the obligation to offer your product to them because you have something that is going to help them and if you don’t help them with what you have, they will miss out on an opportunity that can change or improve their lives. Or even worse, someone else will sell them something that won’t be as good as what you have for them. So if you have the power to help them, DO IT. It is your obligation to make them realize the benefit of it. With this I don’t mean ‘being pushy’ NOT-AT-ALL. Real selling is about helping your client realize by themselves the value or the product or offer you have. In other words, you have a specific solution for someone with a specific problem. If that person is ready, they will take the next step and acquire your product and if is not, that’s ok!.
Nowadays, when people asks me ‘how do you sell?’ Well, I really don’t. Instead, I genuinely share what I do and/or what I know. The sale comes by default. I don’t worry about ugly sales pitch or recommended things to say. I just speak from my heart, from my own experience, from the powerful change that this product or offer has caused in my life and business and how it can help improve their lives too. As the saying goes, the master appears when the student is ready and when they are ready, they take action.
Lesson # 6 – ‘You are a Leader’
Last but not least, I actually heard this phrase when I started my transition from employee to entrepreneur from two of the people whom I appreciate and love to bits, Mike & Regina.
If you have no business background, getting started in business can be effin’ scary, that was me back then. I could barely understand the definition of an autoresponder and the function of it seemed like some type of alien language that I was never going to decipher. After a couple of days of badass 1-on-1 training, everything started to make sense. My point here is… YOU ARE A LEADER. If there is something that you don’t know (yet) and don’t understand (yet) it is OK. Leadership starts with small simple actions within yourself go out there, ask, figure it out and find the solution.
The foundation of leadership starts with leading yourself to the fulfillment of your goals. If you can lead yourself, you can lead others to the fulfillment of their own goals. So leading yourself does make you a leader, as your actions will get people following you and it will also inspire them to take action.
Now, if you are wondering where are all of the business strategies I’ve learnt at these events well my darling you have to attend one and learn it yourself!, keep reading because I’ve got good news for you – and also because this post is about to end– I haven’t put any technical business strategies here because it doesn’t matter if you know how to gain more followers to your instagram account or how to grow your facebook page or how to get more engagement on your you tube videos or find ways to automate your business, etc, etc. Honestly, there is no point in knowing all that if your business/offer/product is not in tune with your core beliefs.
Let me explain, if your business is not giving you the great results you want -especially if you see others getting great the results- and you truly are putting your best effort, most of the time is because of the limiting beliefs and paradigms in your mind acting as barriers which prevent you from achieving YOUR TRUE POTENTIAL. So take a moment to evaluate what are those limiting beliefs and reframe them to your benefit, once those beliefs are in tune with what you do, your business will be rocking!.
However, if you are in tune with your business and you want to learn the business and digital strategies I have learnt from attending events and masterminds and, you are ready to implement these strategies into your own business, I invite you to grab my ebook from here. Finally, now that you know some of the life and business lessons I have learnt from attending events and masterminds… What are you waiting for?? Go secure your ticket and maybe we will meet at an event 😉
To all of my mentors, colleagues, friends that have become family and each of you who have been and are still part of my journey. I am grateful for all of you. Thank You <3
ps: If you haven’t figure it out already, my favourite getaway destination is Bali <3 😀
Hola! In 2013 I quit my medical career to create my own business. Now I love keeping a business & lifestyle balance while travelling or spending heaps of time with my loved ones. Curious? Click here to read my story
Kevin is one of those few people who will totally INSPIRE YOU to unleash your inner power. He embodies the meaning of personal power to defeat any limitation we think we have.
In a few words, Kevin is the one who made the impossible Possible!
I was fortunate enough to attend one of his conferences back in December. In fact, I wasn’t expecting to attend any conferences that day, but it is one of those things that just happen. I went there with zero expectations. To be honest, I didn’t even know who was the presenter and when I finally got there and heard the name, I still didn’t know who he was because…. I don’t watch any TV or News at all).
(Kevin if you’re reading this sorry about that but, it’s the truth :P)
As I was saying… I had no expectations for what was about to happen and perhaps that was one of the best things!
At first glance, Kevin looks like a typical Kiwi (New Zealander), tall athletic, nice blue eyes with a witty, professional look but at the same time, sort of … laid back. Giving his audience a sense of “hey! he’s a normal guy like me!”. I can relate to that!
His presentation begun and as I was listening to what he had to say, watching his videos, laughing at his crack up personality and after having my mind blown away by his C-R-A-Z-Y stories. You realize that he is notjust another Kiwi – Just as Sir Edmund Hillary who was ‘a former Bee-Keeper from Auckland, New Zealand and also the one who -alongside Tenzing Norgay -became the first climbers to conquer the summit of Mount Everest on May, 1953– Kevin Biggar is also -on his own way- a Conqueror.
Once his presentation ended, I came out of the room feeling Empowered, Inspired, and knowing for a fact that I could conquer any of the goals I had. I just needed to re-evaluate my strategies and make them more efficient.
Kevin Biggar‘s presentation had a transformational affect on me. After his presentation, I approached him and asked him if I could interview him. Fortunately enough, Kevin agreed to our interview 🙂
So now I can share his story and excellent advice with YOU. ( Yes, You =) ).
See? I care about you my darling! The thing is, I KNOW that Kevin’s impressive stories can IMPACT you as much as it did me and his effect would be even more powerful if you attend some of his workshops.
Kevin Biggar will help you become better than what you already are and he will teach you how to set goals to Successfully ACHIEVE THEM in spite of how crazy you might think they seem to be!
Kevin will inspire you to UNLEASH Your Inner Power.

So… Who is Kevin Biggar?
From a professional man with an established career , holding a physics degree and a masters, transitioning then as a self-confessed couch potato, before he was transformed into a world record beating endurance athlete in 2003 winning a huge-endurance 5000 Km Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race.
Rowing for the first time in his life alongside a team partner, who he had only met 6 weeks before the race, they not only won, they set a New world record!
The pair then went on to achieve a much tougher challenge in 2007 – as the first ever kiwi team to complete an unsupported trek from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole – a 52 day, 1,200km journey on foot, each towing a 160 kilogram sled in temperatures as freezing as -40 degrees Celsius.
Alongside Jamie Fitzgerald, his rowing team partner, they co host a TV Series ‘Intrepid NZ’ – recreating the adventures of pioneering NZ explorers.
Kevin will entertain you with his adventures, and share with us what he has learnt about facing challenges from rowing across the Atlantic Ocean and Trekking to from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole.
Check out a brief summary of my Interview with Kevin Biggar
Kevin, At what point did you decide to do something different? What was your why?
Kevin: I was going through a quarter life crisis. I just turned 33 years old. I started to think about what I had and hadn’t achieve and what I was ever going to achieve. For the first time, it didn’t feel like I had all the time in the world to do everything and if I wanted to do something that I wanted to do, NOW was the time.
Would you mind sharing the story about your mum and your decision to take part of the Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race?
Mom decided that the only way we would get a result (an agreement) was to ask to her favourite TV show and they will decided if I should go or not. Since then I’ve met all of them and I’ve individually thank all the members.
I see your 5’000 Km trans-Atlantic rowing race as the race across the ocean of life. At some point in our lives, there we are in front of this vast ocean of life not knowing WHAT to do or HOW to do things. Some people follow the regular path society imposes whereas others like, Us the entrepreneurs, choose to do something different, something that others may call “crazy” or “unreasonable”. In your case, you had no previous experience rowing but you TOOK ACTION…. HOW did you map out your plan of action?
Kevin Biggar: Just to clarify, I had no experience rowing when I had the Idea of getting to row, but that was 2 years before the race. So by the time it started out I was very strong.
I think that one of the most important things when you step out to do things you don’t normally do is to find somebody who is doing what you think you are gonna do. For me was a really powerful moment when I met somebody else who had row across the ocean. I met a guy called Rob Hamill , he was a kiwi guy who had won the first Trans-Atlantic Rowing Race and when I met him I saw he was just a normal person. If he was a normal person and he could row across the ocean then I am a normal person too so I should be able to row across the ocean too and suddenly it doesn’t seem like something extraordinary, but like something that if you plan a method you can achieve.
Whatever people is going to do or think of doing, there is always a little sub-culture, a little sub-tribe of who is doing those things. And once you meet them it suddenly becomes more straightforward of how realistic it is to take on this challenges.
Holy cow! if that shmuck could achieve things from sitting on his mom’s couch, well think of how much I can do from where I am starting now. (Kevin Biggar)
If you really want to take on something brave. It’s not about having no fear, it is not about being really tough. It’s just about having a simple method and breaking down the tasks into little steps and building up the momentum on taking on the tasks.
The first thing to do is to meet people who have done similar things to what you want to achieve and start talking to them and getting a plan.
Kevin Biggar: I don’t think it’s all about the mindset. I think that to take on any big challenge, it’s all just about having a process where you set little milestones early on. You meet the right people and you gradually get drawn into it. If you set up a system where you make the process towards what you want to achieve more fun. There is a little bit of discipline and willpower involved, but I don’t think a system to success should be based on been hugely staunch.
Anyone can achieve a huge amount!
The only reason why they don’t try is that they believe they are lacking a certain mysterious ‘X-factor’ that successful people have but in fact it’s not quite how it works. All they are missing are the skills that can be learnt. Like ‘how to keep persistent’ or ‘how to deal with cravings, etc. These are things that can be taught and I teach this things myself on my workshops.
What were the biggest challenges that you encounter?
Kevin Biggar: The biggest challenge that I encountered was getting to the ‘start’ line. Also, possibly in both cases another challenge was raising the money and finding the sponsorship. That was the hardest part and that’s when you are knocking on a lot of doors, getting rejected day after day. You are putting in your own money to keep things at float and at any time you could quit and it wouldn’t be a big deal. But when you are in the race, or when you are walking up to the south pole it is much harder to quit. (…) Kevin then explains some of the challenges he and his partner Jamie faced during their rowing race and while trekking Antarctica.
Making an analogy between someone who has decided to make a career change and start new business with you at your Rowing race across the Atlantic or, with your trek across the South Pole in Antarctica. You didn’t start it just for the sake of doing something different, You did it to WIN. Was that your major goal?
Yes, in the south pole, our major goal was to trek unsupported and unresupplied. We put all of our own food and fuel from the start. Yes, we did it to WIN.
The key thing for people starting their own businesses it is having a mentor. Someone who knows what are the odds if something pops out.(…) Someone to ask you what your business plan is, what your marketing plan is right at the very start before you invest lots of time and money.(…) There is a lot to be said by someone who is just a couple of years further on the road than you and see what they’ve learnt from the systems that they’ve put in place. I am big fan of getting in a group of people who is doing similar things.
Once you were in your race and things got tough. How did you get the motivation to keep going?
There’s a motivation in keeping your environment set up in such a way that it helps you. When you are on a boat and all you can do is row and if you don’t get up to do your shift then your team mate doesn’t get in to sleep. Then, it’s not so hard to get up. We didn’t have any other options. (…)Your life becomes simple and that’s what I do now in terms of motivation.(…) I met with someone who is in a complete different business than me and all we do is we hold each other accountable for the goals that we set or we are going to set (…)That is massively motivating for me because I don’t want to let this guy down.
Do you think you can compare your situation in the ocean as a life-threatening situation?
No, I felt safe… I felt safe up until the moment when I nearly died (laughs). I talked about that in the speech (…). Trekking to the south pole I felt more like we were gonna die. It was really easy for a little thing to snowball and go wrong (…)
That reminds me of this quote “When you want to succeed as hard as you want to breath, then you will succeed”
Kevin Biggar: Well that is exactly the kind of advice that I think is bad advice. I have rules of advice, I call them my laws of bullshit.
If you hear something and the opposite is also true, then you know you are getting bad advice. (refer to audio for great examples)
If the advice sounds correct but it requires me to be superhuman then that’s not good advice either. (refer to audio for great examples)
A Great tip that helped you keep yourself motivated…
Getting some coaches and a business mentor. The people who I took great attention of in the build-up was my coach called Jon Ackland from Performance Lab and if anyone is thinking of doing an ultra-marathon adventure or some sort of extreme outdoor adventure then he would be a fantastic person to speak to because he understands performance and the athletic world. To get an hour with Jonis to get some very powerful lessons.
What do you think is the one thing that prevents most entrepreneurs from taking action & What advice can you give them?
Fear of the consequences, fear of what can get wrong. That is certainly what almost stopped me from taking part of the transatlantic rowing race. (…) The key thing is to make certain that there is a safety net underneath you so make sure that you are not risking everything – unless you are the sort of person that can find that particularly motivation or you are particularly young-. If you are 21 then you could go broke, but if you are 35 with 2 kids then that is not so appealing.
It’s about looking at the risks wide-eyed and making sure you’ve got the wort case scenario sorted. So if the worst case happens then you should be able to survive it. (…)and definitely HAVING A PLAN, even if you change the plan later, it is much better to start off with a plan and then change the plan as a result of the information you learn. I’m guilty myself of living day to day in the business and not thinking about where I want to be in a year’s time and working backwards from there.
If you are looking to make a career change, to become an entrepreneur and start your own business, these are the main points I’ve gotten from Kevin Biggar’s advice.
Surround yourself with people who have done similar things to what you want to achieve.
Get yourself a Mentor or a Coach, someone who has been where you are at and it is exactly where you want to be.
Learn the skillsand methods necessary to succeed in your area of choice.
Have a PLAN of Action from the beginning, know where you are going to and be flexible to change/adapt that plan according to circumstances that serve your purpose.
With these 4 things in place, You can achieve whatever you want to achieve. Remember, It is not about trying hard but about trying Smart.

Hola! In 2013 I quit my medical career to create my own business. Now I love keeping a business & lifestyle balance while travelling or spending heaps of time with my loved ones. Curious? Click here to read my story
Tip & Advice Before Quitting Your Job. Tip #1: Embrace Your Situation
Have you ever find yourself asking yourself “Should I Quit My Job?”, should I -perhaps- change careers? Should I do something different to what I am already doing?
If you’re here reading this right now, you have obviously had. In fact, that was me on those mornings when I would woke up bright and early to go to work. I loved my career, but there was something missing. It wasn’t fulfilling anymore.
Something within myself was saying –screaming sometimes- STOP IT! This is not what you want to be doing for the rest of your life! You weren’t born for this! You were born for so much more than being stuck at work 15+ hours a day. Of course this doesn’t include the commuting time which fluctuated between 1 -3 hours a day.
According to some statistics gathered by business insider if we add up all of the time the average person spends working, it would make90’000 HOURS of WORKover their lifetime.
Yes, you read that correctly: Ninety thousand hours of non-stop work during your lifetime. That is 3’750 DAYS which makes 10.3 YEARS of Your life working.
Imagine yourself working for over a decade of your life, non stop, with no breaks from dawn to dawn, just like robots.
It sounds more like a sci-fi movie and it may be hard to imagine it happening in the real world but unfortunately, that is the reality for most of people except that instead of working for over a decade non-stop, they work with breaks in between, with a 7-10 day holiday a year, where they don’t even get to rest so, eventually, they spend most of their lifetime working, ending up stressed, overloaded, unfulfilled.
Oh but this is only the beginning my dear because on top of that, the reality in numbers goes like this:
25% of employees say work is their main source of stress and 40% say their job is “very or extremely stressful (CDC statistics)
64% of Americans canceled vacations last year. One-third did it for work-related reasons even though most felt they were more in need of a vacation than the year before
You spend 90% of your lifetime, INDOORS, most of it at work . That’s 71 out of 79 years.
Do you get the picture? This stuff is real. So it is of no wonder why SOME people like You and I fall in to the realization that there definitely is SOMETHING MORE, something better and more meaningful to do with your life. Something fulfilling that gives you the joy to do what you love, with whom you love, wherever you choose to be while still generating an income.
It is of no wonder why some of Us, then, wake up and start asking ourselves: Should I quit my job? Should I make a career change? Should I start my own business?.
That’s why I decided to create this video training series: “Should I Quit My Job? Tips and Advice You Should Consider before quitting Your Job.
So within the following days/weeks I will be giving you – excuse the redundancy- the tips & advice you need to consider before quitting your job. Today we are starting with Tip#1 and that is, “Embrace Your Situation”. Of course there is more to just embracing your situation, but that is something you’ll learn in the video. So… here it is 🙂
To watch the video on my facebook page, click here. Feel free to like, share and leave some comments.
See you tomorrow for Tip# 2 that you should consider before quitting your job.
Have you read Rich Dad, Poor Dad from Robert Kiyosaki?
The first time I read “RichDad, Poor Dad”, it was probably
between my 14 or 15’s I LOVE reading and this kind of
books were always part of our shelves thanks to mum.
Mum always ensure that we feed our minds with valuable
information besides what I learnt at school, I was a curious
little girl and she always allowed me to express myself
and respected my own –sometimes weird– opinions.
Oh mum, you always gave me the right foundation for my success.
I guess I was being a wealthypreneur without even knowing
what being a wealthypreneur meant back then.
Ok, let’s get back on track! :P… To be honest, it has already
been 12 years since I read it for the first time and I couldn’t
Since last year up until now I’ve listened to the “rich dad, poor dad”
audiobook probably about 10 times, and just recetly I decided
to buy the book again and read it. This time, in english.
(FYI, I’m from Peru so the first time I read it, it was in Spanish)
I started reading the book 2 days ago, and I don’t wanna finish it!
One of my rules is listen to an audio for about 1 hr and read for
about 1 hour. I usually do this right after my morning meditation,
as soon as I wake up. It is one of my rituals.
So yes, you might be saying… Ameli, you spend 2 hours reading
and listening to audios?… 2 HOURS??!!!
YES, and I call this Investing in myself. I know that my mindset
and my time are my biggest asset so I choose to invest in them
to then, apply what I know not only in businesses, but also in
my life. Nowadays time for me is not a problem anymore as I am
a full time online entrepreneur so I can distribute my time as I please.
Of course, I get distracted sometimes!
Now before I say anything else, I’ll share with you some of
my favourite and …
Powerful quotes from “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”
“One dad would say: “The love for money is the root of all evil”. The other one, “The LACK of money is the root of all evil”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Learn to Manage Risk” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“There is a difference between being poor and being broke. Broke is temporary, and poor is eternal”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Take it or leave it. I’ve got too much work to do to waste my time. If you can’t make up your mind decisively, then you;ll never learn to make money anyway. OPPORTUNITES COME AND GO. Being able to know when to make a quick decisions is an important skill” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
#5For when you blame your boss or someone else about situations in YOUR LIFE
“You’d Best Change your point of view. Stop blaming me, thinking I’m the problem. If you think I’m the problem, then you have to change me. If you realize that you ‘re the problem, then you can change yourself, learn something and grow wiser. Most people want everyone else in the world to change but themselves. Let me tell you, it’s easier to change yourself than everyone else”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“The avoidance of money is just as psychotic as being attached to money” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
#7 For those moments when emotions like fear or anxiety seem to gain control…
“Emotions are what make us human. Make us real. The word ’emotion’ stands for energy in motion. Be truthful about your emotions, and use your mind and emotions in your favour, not against yourself. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“‘Will a job be the best solution to this fear (the fear of not having enough money) over the long run?’ In my opinion, the answer is ‘no’. Especially when you look over a person’s lifetime. A job is really a short-term solution to a long-term problem” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“I want to teach you to master the power of money. Not ne afraid of it. And they don’t teach you that in school. If you don’t learn it, you become a slave to money”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Once a person stops searching for information and knowledge of one’s self, ignorance sets in. That struggle is a moment-to-moment decision- to learn to open or close one’s mind.” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Unfortunately for many people, school is the end, not the beginning” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
#12 Understanding assets and liabilities:
“Rich people acquire assets. The poor and middle class acquire liabilities they think are assets” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“An asset puts money in your pocket. A liability takes money from your pocket” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
#14Are you in a debt?, keeep this in mind…
“If you find yourself in a hole. Stop digging” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Mind your own business. Financial struggle is often directly the result of people working all their life for someone else. Many people will have nothing at the end of their working days”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
#16 – About Professions, Businesses and your Career….
“There is a big difference between your profession and your business. I often ask people “What is your business?” And they will say “Oh, I’m a banker”. Then, I ask them if they own the bank? And they usually respond “No, I work there” (…) A problem with school is that you often become what you study (…) The mistale in becoming what you study is that too many people forget to mind their own business. They spend their lives minding someone else’s business and making that person rich” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“When I say mind your own business, I mean to build and keep your asset column strong”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“We all have tremendous potential and we all are blessed with gifts. Yet, the one thing that hold us back is some degree of self-doubt” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“In the real world outside of academics, something more than just grades is required (…) This factor, whatever it is labeled, ultimately decides one’s future more than school grades ” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Often, in the real world is not the smart that get ahead, but the bold” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“I’d rather be welcoming change than dreading change”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Land was wealth 300 years ago. So the person who owned the land owned the wealth. Then, it was factories and production, and America rose to dominance. TODAY, it is information. And the person who has the most timely information owns the wealth” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
#23 For people who refuse to change…
“Old ideas are their biggest liability. It is a liability simply because they fail to realize that while that idea or way of doing something was an asset yesterday, yesterday is gone”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Rich people are often creative and take calculated risks”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
#25 – Reasons to increase your financial intelligence…
“Few people realize that luck is created. Just as money is. And if you want to be luckier and create money instead of working hard, then your financial intelligence is important. If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the “right” thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It’s like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“The single most powerful asset we all have is our mind. If it’s trained well, it can create enormour wealth (…) An untrained mind can also create extreme poverty that lasts lifetimes by teaching it to their families” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“So why develop your financial genius? Only you can answer that (…) I develop my financial IQ because I want to participate in the fastest game and the biggest game in the world. (…) That is why I invest in my financial intelligence, developing the most powerful asset I have. I want to be with people moving boldly forward. I do not want with those left behind.” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Simple math and common sense is all that is needed to do well financially”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“Great opportunities are not seen with your yes, they are seen with your mind. Most people never get wealthy because they are not trained financially to recognize opportunities right in front of them (…) To find an opportunity that everyone else has missed. You see with your mind what others miss with their eyes”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
#29 – Taking the road to financial freedom…
“Always remember to have fun. This is only a game. Sometimes you win and sometimes you learn. But have fun. Most people never win because they are more afraid of losing. That is why I found school so silly. In school we learn that mistakes are bad, and we are punished for making them. Yet, if you look at the way humans are designed to learn, we learn by making mistakes. We learn to walk by falling down. If we never fell down, we would never walk. The same is true for learning to ride a bike. (…) The same is true for getting rich. Unfortunately, the main reason most people are not reach is because they are terrified of losing. Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki).
“It is what you know that is your greatest wealth. It is what you do not know that is your greatest risk. There is always risk, so learn to manage risk instead of avoid it.”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
#31 – What is financial Intelligence?
“Financial intelligence is a synergy of accounting, investing, marketing and law. Combine those four technical skills and making money with money is easier. “(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
#32 – About a “JOB”
“Job is an acronym for Just Over Broke” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Workers work hard enough to not be fired, and owners pay just enough so that workers won’t quit” And if you look at the pay scales of most companies, again I would say there is a degree of truth in that statement” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
” The net results is that most workers never get ahead. They do what they’ve taught to do: “get a secure job.” Most workers focus on working for oay and benefits that reward them in the short term, but is often disastrous in the long run” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
#35 – Before choosing your career path…
“Instead I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acqure before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the “Rat Race”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
#36 – What is the Rat Race??
“Once people are trapped in the lifelong process of billpaying, they become like those little hamsters running around in those little metal wheels. Their little furry legs are spinning furiously, the wheel is turning furiusly, but come tomorrow morning, they’ll still be in the same cage: great job”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
#37 – So, what to do??
“When I speak to adults who want to earn more money, I always recommend the same thing (…) Often I recommend joining a network marketing company, also called multilevel marketing, if they ant to learn sales skills. Some of these companies have excellent training programs that help people get over their fear of failure and rejection, which are the main reasons people are unsuccesful. EDUCATION is more valuable than money, in the long run”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“The reason so many talented people are poor is because they focus on building a “better hamburguer” (using the example of McDonald’s) and know little to nothing about business systems” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“My poor dad said, “you need to know a lot about one specialty.” My rich dad said, “you need to learn a little about a lot of things”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Poor dad wanted me to specialize. That was his view on how to be paid more. Even after being told by the governor of Hawaii that he could no longer work in state government (…) He never understood that the more specialized you become, the more you are trapped and dependent on that specialty”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“The main management skills needed for success are: 1. The management of cashflow; 2, The management of systems (including yourself and time with family); 3. The management of people”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“It is communication skills such as writing, speaking and negotiating that are crucial to a life of success” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Rich dad encouraged Mike and me to know a little about a lot. He encouraged us to work with people smarter than we were and to bring smart people together to work as a team. Today it would be called a synergy of professional specialties”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“If you hate risk and worry…. start early”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“The greatest reason for lack of financial success was because most people played it too safe. “People are so afraid of losing that they lose” were my rich dad’s words” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Rich dad knew that failure would only make him stronger and smarter” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Failure inspires winners and failure defeat losers. It is the biggest secret of winners”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“The main reason that over 90 percent of the American publis struggles financially is because they play not to lose. They don’t play to win” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“If you have little money and you want to be rich, you must first be “focused”, not “balanced”. If you look at anyone successful, at the start they were not balanced. Balanced people go nowhere. They stay in one spot. To make progress, you must first go unbalanced. Just look at how you make progress walking” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“If you have any desire to be rich, you must focus. Put a lot of your eggs in a few baskets. Do not do what poor and middle-class people do: put thir few eggs in many baskets” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Staking the asset column is a high-attitude game. It takes guts, patience and a great attitude toward failure. Losers aoid failing. And failure turns losers into winers”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“How do you beat laziness? The answer is a little greed. IT’s that radio station WII-FM, which stands for ‘What’s In It-For Me?’ A person needs to sit and ask, “What’s in it for me if I’m healthy, sexy and good looking?”or “what would my life be like if I never had to work again?” Without that little greed, the desire to have something better, progress is not made. Our world progresses because we all desire a better life (…) So whenever you find yourself avoiding something you knwo you should be doing, then the only thing to ask yourself is “What’s in it for me?”Be a little greedy. It’s the best cure for laziness. ” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Do what you feel in your heart to be right -for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll b damned if you do, and damned if you don’t “- Eleanor Roosevelt. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Arrogance is ego plus ignorance. (…) When you know you are ignorant in a subject, start educating yourself by finding an expert in the field or find a book on the subject”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Most people simply buy investments rather than first invest in learning about investing” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Arrogant or critical people are often people with low se lf-steem who are afraid of taking risks”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“I would say that one of the hardest things about wealth building is to be true to yourself and be willing to not go along with the crowd. (…) As we used to say as surfers: “There is always another way.” People who hurry and catch a wave late usually are the ones who wipe out”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“You become what you study” In other words be careful about what you study and learn, because your mind is so powerful that you become what you put in your head”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Put into action what you learn”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“A lesson that I learned from my rich dad was that “the world push you around.” The world ushes people around not because other people are bullies, but because the individual lcks internal control and discipline. People who lack internal fortitude often become victims of those who have self-discipline”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
#61 -Starting your own business?
“The three most important management skills to start your own business are: 1. Management of cashflow; 2. Management of people; 3. Management of personal time (…) The three matter in the way you live your life as an individual, or as part of a family, a business, a charitable organization, a city or a nation” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Use pressure to inspire your financial genious to come up with new ways of making more money and then pay your bills. (…) The rich know that savings are only used to create more money, not to pay bills” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“The real skill is to manage and pay well the people who are smarter than you in some technical area.(…) Why? Because if, and I do mean IF, the people are professionals, their services should make you money. And the more money they make, the more money I make (…) That is financial intelligence”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Too often today, we focus to borrowing money to get the things we want instead of focusing on creating money. One is easier in the short term, but harder in the long term (…) Remember, the easy road often becomes hard, and the hard road often becomes easy”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“To be a master of money, you need to be smarter than it. Then money will do as it is told. It will obey you. Instead of being a slave to it, you will be the master of it. That is financial intelligence”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“If you want something, you FIRST need to give” (…) Whenever you feel ‘short’ or in “need” of something, give what you want first and it will come back in buckets”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“There are powers in this world that are much smarter than we are. You can get there on your own, but it’s easier with the help of powers to be. All you need to be is generous with what you have, and the powers will be generous to you” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Stop doing what you are doing. In other words, take a break and asses what is working and what is not working. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. Stop doing what is not working and look for something new to do”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Take responsibility for your finances or take orders all your life. You’re either a master of money or a slave to it” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Take Action! – Find someone who has done what you want to do, take classes and buy tapes (…) Action always beats inaction” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Profits are made when you buy, not when you sell”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Buy the pie and cut it in pieces (…) If you want to get richer, think bigger first”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Money is only an idea. If you want more money simply change your thinking. Every self-made person started small with an idea, then turned it into something big. It takes only a few dollars to start and grow into something big”. (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Education and wisdom about money are important. Start early. Buy a book. Go to a seminar. Practice. Start small” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“It’s what is in your head what determines what is in your hands. Money is only an idea. There is a great book Think and Grow Rich. The tittle is not work hard and grow rich. Learn to have money work hard for you and your life will be easier and happier.”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Today, don’t play it safe, play it smart”(Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
“Awaken the financial genious that lies within you. Your genious is waiting to come out” (Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki)
After 4 days reading this book again, I’ve to admit I felt
a bit bumped when Robert said “Thank You for reading this book”
it is such a good book and there is so much great info that
I didn’t want to finish it. But, at the same time… There are more
books to read and knowledge to acquire.
As You might very well understand now, Your mindset is your biggest asset
fill it with the right information. But also, it’s not only about new information
and learning but also about TAKING ACTION towards the new things
I hope you understand that “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” it is not about
real estateor the share market. Robert gives this as his examples because
it is his business and his passion and he knows how to play the game of money.
Whatever your career is, and the path you have chosen – or ar about to choose-
make sure you add in some of the skills Robert mentions all along his book
and that I’ve tried to quote in this post.
Remember… TAKE ACTION towards the opportunites in front of you!
That is what I did to get out of my “rat race”, and now I’m able to work
from home -or wherever I happen to be- from my computer, build my
empire. It is normal to feel confused at the beginning, it is normal to feel
fear and it is normal to fail. Failure is the way to success and as long
as you Learn, it is not failure. So TAKE ACTION, do it for yourself
for the life you deserve and for what you want to achieve. I share some of the
the education I’ve acquired about building my own business,
marketing, branding, selling on my private facebook group that you can access for free.
So you can learn some vital steps to Succeed in business!
Btw, what was your favourite “Ridch Dad, Poor Dad” quote??
Remember to leave your thoughts in the comments below this
post and if you find this powerful quotes valuable, then go ahead
and share it with your friends :)!
Someone told me this morning “If you want to succeed you have to put in the effort”.
We all want to be successful, we all want to achieve our ultimate dreams, 99% of those people is willing to take determined action and put the right effort into it, and that road only leads to one place: FAILURE CITY.
So the question here is HOW BAD do You really want it?? What are you willing to do to achieve even your craziest goal??
I have to be honest here, for different reasons, I haven’t been blogging as much as I should these last days. I would point out exactly the reasons why I couldn’t, but in that pack there are also some excuses and as the saying goes…..
If your excuses are bigger than your dreams, then your dream is not big enough!
So I figured, I better get back into blogging! -on the other hand, I also miss it!-
So WHY do 99% of businesses fail?? and…. How can YOU be in that not-ordinary 1%??. Easy!, This is what you should NOT be doing:
FREE TIME & PROCRASTINATION:
When you work for yourself, when you are your own boss, when you work from home -or no home- NOONE is going to sit next to you and tell you. “Ok ABC, this is what you need to do while handling you a list -from 1 to 10- of things you need to do”. So You can choose to…
A. BE SUCCESSFUL:
You have already ORGANIZED your productive activities for the next day the night before.
You PRIORITIZE the important or harder tasks first time and the easiest ones to the end.
You Wake Up Early and at the same time everyday (you’re actually doing a favour to your brain and those neurons :)! )
The lazy bum, gets out of bed after 9+ am.
Waste the whole morning on facebook (the BIGGEST data & waste social media if used in a non-productive way),
Maybe spend some time on your bum watching TV and eating some chips.
There’s no productive/smart Organization of your day.
To be a clear here, YES, there is anyone pushing you an forcing you to do some work. But if you want your business to succeed, you need to treat it like a business, be responsible and get things done ON TIME. Only your effort, your commitment and the passion you put into your work will get you the results that you want. And something super important is: You Need to DO what you LOVE and what motivates you. Because that love and that motivation is going to be your strength when you feel down, because… yes my dear. There are going to be times where you’ll fill exhausted and down. Life is not perfect!, there are always up and downs. And here is when your core motivation comes to the rescue, to boost you up with a huge those of motivation, inspiration & strenght :).
THE MESSY PILE OF PAPERS:
A lot of people would think this is not important. As long as they know where they’ve left their “stuff” that’s alright. Meanwhile their desks look more like a recycling collection place with heaps documents/papers/books/receipts/ magazines/ newspapers/big notes/ little notes/ post-it’s/ fake post-it’s etc etc… all mixed up with pens, pencils, cables, plates and anything random you can imagine. (You get the picture).
Well.. guess what?? That’s a NO NO NO. AVOID IT AT ALL PRICES!!! Why?… Because
You are making it harder for your brain to focus, and provide you with the ideas/inspiration & resources you need!. A messy environment is only going to fill your mind with the same sh**t you’ve got around you.
Your desk is your personal area, your area of work. If it is all dirty and messy. It is only a subconscious reflection of what you have inside.
What you have inside will reflect in the way you manage your business. Yes, it is a cycle.
CONSISTENCY IS KEY
If you study successful people, you will realize the they all have ONE thing in common. They are all CONSISTENT no matter what!.
Once you have a vision and you set your goal, create a plan and strategize to achieve that goal. Every single day is an opportunity to grow, and every single day you need to take massive determined action, CONSISTENTLY.
As Neil Patel said today in our webcast, when he was blogging consistently, he was getting leads and results every single day. He stopped for a period of time and it took him about 3 months to recover the amount of visitors and leads he was previously getting.
In my personal experience, previously I have been blogging consistently up until the last blogging challenge. I was getting heaps of traffic, comments, visitors, people emailing me and subscribing to my list. There was action and it felt good!. After a couple of days I got some people asking about my posts. It is going to be 2 weeks now and guess how many visitors I get daily now??? Yeah…. not so many….
Is it Clear??? BE CONSISTENT and No Matter WHAT BE CONSISTENT!. The little steps from today will pay you back in the future. And once you look back you’ll see how FAR you have gotten. You will know more than what you know today and eventually you’ll just be a better person, maybe a totally different person :)!
THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU
Unsuccessful people, believe that they can do it all on their own. They do not delegate and they believe they already know it all, that’s why hey do not take advice of other people, they do not listen to others and that is also why… they are not successful.
Successful people, look to connect with like-minded people. They join together often to brainstorm and change ideas. Like exactly what we do in our amazing masterminds. They care and support each other to build up their own business. They understand that the key of success lays in joining a community and working as a team, being accountable while respecting your own independence. It is like a relationship!!
If your partner/boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife tells you to do everything their own way, and you have to be next to them 24/7 as if you were a teddy bear and you have no voice whatsoever. Where is that relationship going to end?? FAILING!.
On the other hand if within the relationship, each of you respect your own differences and actually use those differences to grow, communicate, understand each other and even push each other. Things are going to be so much better! And that relationship will SUCCEED :).
EDUCATE AND INVEST IN YOURSELF
Successful People,is continuously educating themselves, whether they chose to go to a training, a seminar, an update, study & read the new trends. Successful people is always looking to learn more, to innovate. Want examples??: Search the most successful Gurus, Leaders & Entrepreneurs in the world: Richard Branson, Donald Trump, Hiro Kiyosaki, Anthony Robbins, etc etc.
Unsuccessful people, think that learning new things is a waste of time, their ego makes them so blind and dumb that they can not see the world changes continuously. They believe they already know it all but with that attitude they actually know nothing. They are not coachable and unwilling to learn. Therefore they get stuck in bumps they have created to themselves along their way.
So these are the tips you need to apply to be part of the 1% and have a successful business. It may sound easy, it may sound simple and you can say right now “bah… easy-peacy”. If that’s you, nice! Then challenge yourself to follow them and applying them on a DAILY basis NO-MATTER-WHAT.
And a great way for you to start is by blogging consecutively for 21 days. Why 21 days??. Because it takes 21 days of consistent action to develop a habit.
So get your things sorted and start working to your success!!
Tomorrow I’ll continue with My Website Series 🙂
See you on my next post.
ps: If this post helped you, you enjoy it or you just love my tanned skin & happy face :D, then go ahead and share this post and its value with the rest of the world :D!
On the previous blogging challenge, we’ve been talking pretty much about YOU, about your own personal development and the importance of building a successful mindset before starting a business online -or any other business- . These steps are FUNDAMENTAL to start your online business with the right foot. So if you haven’t read those posts yet and before you learn how to grow a successful online business, I highly recommend you to do so and follow the exercises assigned there.
3 pillars of starting a successful online business
Because the truth is that whatever is happening around you, somehow is a direct reflection of how things are inside you. Therefore you need to master yourself, learn to control your thoughts and utilize the power of your subconscious mind first before pretending to master anything else.
I am going to assume you have check each of those topics and follow the exercises there. Because yes, you can go straight to the “golden nuggets” but it would be pretty much as pretending to build a house with a weak, wobbly foundation.
It doesn’t matter how pretty you make it look, if the foundation is weak and unstable your house will fall apart as a house of cards with a soft breeze and at the first setback in your business, you will be freaking out trying to understand the “why’s”. So to save you all that unnecessary worry, hassle, waste of time & money. Just Go READ & APPLY the exercises in the articles above.
Are we clear now? Great :).
Now let’s move forward.
Considering today is Day 5 in this 21 day blogging challenge, over the next 16 days I Will be educating you with a bit more technical and practical knowledge to teach you how to grow a successful online business.
Tomorrow, to guide you on how to grow an online business and how to succeed in business, we will be talking about “The Basic Steps To Have An Appealing, High Converting and Responsive Website/ Blog” to promote your business and increase customer engagement.
So you can be on the right track when starting an online business… stay tuned! :)!
