I recently read a blog post where someone mentioned creating a Word for the Year. This is where you choose a word that encapsulates your main intention for the year. It can be one word or a group of words. For some, it’s not always easy to find that word and in fact, you can take courses to help you find that word, but for me it was easy. I knew straight away that my word was ‘minimalism’.
I have been wanting to declutter for some time now and in fact, have been slowly doing this with household items but I really wanted to get serious about it. The house was still filled with so many ‘you never know when you might need it’ items and it was time to let them go.
This has taken up much of January for me and Wanda has come onboard as well and is doing the same with her home. In fact, she has gotten rid of far more than me. Continue reading
We know from the emails we receive that so many people are struggling to make a decent living online. It can be quite depressing at times when you seem to put in so much effort for little return, and often your family and friends are not supportive.
But Affiliate Marketing does work, you just need to get the process right. We tried all sorts of things before we finally found what worked for us and the steps that we talk about in our Amazonian Profit Plan certainly made the world of difference to our income and lifestyle. The main thing is to find what suits you and stick to it. Money isn’t going to start coming in at the start, be prepared for this, in fact it generally takes a few months before you start to see any real results. But if you stick at it you will get there.
So why do I love the affiliate marketing business? Well it allows me to live a rich and fulfilling life full of extraordinary moments. I just want to share some of the highlights with you, maybe it will help to keep you focused when you know that I am not some young tech savvy person, in fact I am a grandmother and a great grandmother (I started young) so if I can do this, so can you.
In the last three weeks alone, we have had the opportunity to drive 4 different model Ferraris through a company called Prancing Horse, attend the T. Harv Eker ‘Millionaire Mind” conference and then went on to the Tony Robins/Richard Branson Ultimate Success Summit in Sydney.
It has been a lifelong dream of mine to own a Ferrari, so having the opportunity to drive 4 different models was an amazing experience.
We left Sydney on the Friday morning and drove to Kiama for lunch at the Seabreeze Restaurant and then further on down the NSW coast to Gerringong where we stayed overnight at the Bellachara Boutique Hotel. The package included, accommodation, all meals and a fantastic massage when we arrived at the hotel.
Then we drove back to Sydney the next day. There were 8 people all told, and each car had two people in each, so we stopped to do a driver exchange and later on at the next stop we exchanged cars. This gave everyone the opportunity to drive each of the cars. A totally awesome weekend. And just don’t tell anyone I told you but Paula got a speeding ticket driving one of the Ferraris – a whopping $672 (approx $630US) for doing 40kms over the speed limit! She says it was worth it!
A week later we were back in Sydney to attend the 3 day Millionaire Mind Intensive event and stayed on in Sydney to see Tony Robbins and Richard Branson, for a taste of more motivational inspiration.
So for the past 3 weeks we have stayed in Sydney at 4 & 5 star hotels, eaten at very nice restaurants and attended educational and inspirational events; things we could not have done without our online business and more specifically when we finally worked out what we needed to do to get our websites to start returning serious money.
It has allowed us to travel wherever and whenever we like because this business can be done on your laptop. We flit back and forward to the US and next year we are off to Europe again, plus we get to travel around Australia at will.
We didn’t always know what we were doing and we made every mistake in the book along the way. But we found the key to success is to have a plan, focus on it and open your mind to the endless possibilities that are available.
We did it and so can you!!
