A little Success Story From Skills Learnt at WA

Last Update: January 08, 2016

Success happens on many different levels, and can happen simultaneously on many of these levels at the same time if we are ready for this to occur.

Some background information, A few years back i was involved in a bricks and morta business. I had a substantial share holding in this particular company. Through a complex course of events, I was placed in an untenable position. The out come, basically I turned over that shareholding in that company for the sum of one dollar.

This represented a major loss on many different levels, financially, emotionally, relationship wise both personal and business associate wise. The fall out was emense.It leaves you in a vunerable position. As an individual it can be very challenging to pick yourself up dust your self off and get back into the game. To be honest it takes a little time to get things sorted. It is a head space thing.

At that low ebb, it can indeed be a very lonely place. Folks mean well and there is advice aplenty. At the end of the day it is your journey and you are the only one that can make the decisions that will change your situation. It is a process.I looked at it as an opportunity. Because of the complexity of the situation it required some different and creative thinking to remain in the market that I was involved in. That in it's self has been a major positive.

The Success Story

The opportunity presented, to make direct contact with the company. From being here at Wealthy Affiliate I am developing a new skill set. Which is a definitely a work in progress. I tackled this situation from a different perspective.

Some times the simple things are the best things.

I decided to construct the correspondence in the same vein as creating a blog, by including the following. Classic solution.

  • Keywords
  • Long tail key words
  • 3 to 4 sentence paragraphs
  • Added some images
  • Added some calls to actions.
  • Provided some solutions to issues that the company were having.
  • Had it hand delivered to the appropriate person. ( custom audience )

The out come could be described as miraculous, I was contacted by the chairman on new year's eve, we had a very positive conversation. Next week we will be sitting down and negotiating a way forward in which will include me taking a shareholding in the company. Unbeleavable. What a ride.

Success in business is related to the strategies that you develop and implement.

If I wasn't here at WA would I achieved this out come definitely not. It's not an online success story, but it is a" take the online skill set and apply it to a bricks and morta situation". This makes for a very interesting journey, my return on my membership has well truly paid dividends beyond belief. Everything from here on in will be a bonus. A bonus which will help many other folks and that is a given fact.

This is a story about the success that can be obtained by applying the skills we learn here, weather it be online or off line. It is an overview, if things aren't going to plan.

Stop think and reinvent, its an ongoing process.

Remember that success is looking for you.Just reach out and claim it.

Thank you for reading .

Alexander.

Sometimes bad experiences strengthen our willpower to learn from our failures and stir us towards finding the solution. Though it is a bitter pill to swallow, but to be a man is to be able to stand up, dust oneself and move ahead in situations like this. You have been able to forge ahead and now a solution has come by applying the skills acquired here at WA., that is, not only applicable to online businesses but also to bricks and mortars, skills here are inexplicably valuable. Thanks for sharing, God bless you.

Both the bad and good news were interesting to read, the bad ones because it takes a lot of strenght courage and willpower to get back on track , and also because i can identify with some of those feelings as i had some similar issue that made me move out from the country i was living on , thus losing many friends and the place where i grew up.

The good news i also like becaused you show us how even when all the odds are against one , success can still be achieved with effort and thinking outside the box.

I really liked your sincerity you earned a follower :) .
Hoping your success keeps growing.

Hi Erin
Thank you for dropping by, have to agree things do happen for a reason. At the time perhaps we don't see that reason, but on reflection we grow because of it.

great post . I too had to learn the hard way with a brick and mortar biz, lesson I learned was not how too start the biz, but the first thing to do was to plan how to wind it down when things didn't go as planned.
Great to see things turn around for u
