(Rant) You Know What Makes Me Sad?


Almost exactly one year ago, After trying to figure it out on my own (with NO success)…..I joined a company that taught me a TON of internet marketing skills…but most importantly, I met some rock star people whose eyes were shining bright from the excitement and hope that they were going to figure out this “internet thing”, and achieve financial freedom.

Slowly, I watched the light dim in almost all those eyes. Most, yes…MOST have given up…disappeared! They probably got burned out for a number of reasons….got overwhelmed….blamed their sponsor….couldn’t handle the pressure from friends and family…and they either went back to their j.o.b. or found another bright, shiny object that fed them promises which gave them another spark in those eyes for a time or two.

It just makes me sad..

Didn’t Michael Jordan get cut from his high school basketball team?

Didn’t Steve Jobs get fired from his own company?

walt-disney-was-fired-by-a-newspaper-editor-because-he-lacked-imagination-and-had-no-good-ideasDid you know that Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas?”

After Harrison Ford’s first small movie role, an executive took him into his office and told him he’d never succeed in the movie business.

Didn’t R.U. Darby GIVE UP from striking the richest gold mine in Colorado history when he was just 3 feet away?

Did a heart surgeon learn how to do open heart surgery overnight?

colonel-harland-david-sanders-was-fired-from-dozens-of-jobs-before-founding-a-successful-restaurantDo you have any idea how many NO’s Colonel Sanders got before he got his first YES to sell his “secret recipe” for KFC chicken? Over 1,000!!!

Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, had his first book rejected by 27 different publishers.  His books have now sold well over 600 million copies!!


Listen, you can still survive and sustain yourselves as you are learning this “internet marketing” thing. Most of us live in so much abundance, it’s not even funny.

Do you REALLY need to have that steak dinner when you can a get one at the grocery store for a fraction if the price?

WHY do you want this?


Then make the decision that you are going to whatever it takes!

Choose something that resonates with you… you want to help others succeed? Do you want to help others lose weight? Do you want to help others look younger?

Then take a method and LASER FOCUS on that for 30 solid days!!

Whether that is Facebook marketing, Video marketing, Blogging, Pinning, WHATEVER!

If you do that, I promise….you WILL be an expert in that field.

Don’t belly ache about why you can’t do something. Those are excuses!!! Take that excuse and crush it by learning how to overcome it!

I want you to know that I have made sacrifices!

There are times when my husband thinks I’m insane for how driven I am. I have gained weight because I have spent so much time sitting at my computer -learning and doing.

But can I tell you what?

Nothing feels better than when I know I have helped changed the life of someone who decided to do whatever it takes.

Those people are few and far between. Now I know what they mean when they say there is a 97%failure rate.

(I am SO TEMPTED to tag those friends but I won’t…you know who you are) 

As for me????

I am NOT giving up. I have come SO FAR in this last year….more than I ever have in my whole life!

I have grown so much as a person, wife, mother and friend. I have met some of the most incredible people who don’t live anywhere close to me!

I am finally starting to have success…..I’m finally starting to reap the rewards, so to speak.

But guys…. IT WASN’T EASY.

Which is why…I am NOT giving up. I love this industry way too much….because I made the CHOICE to do so.

And don’t you give up either.
