As i build my on-liine biz empire. i discovered ;.!
Once upon a time, life responsibilities were so much more taxing juggling family life, work, fun, excitement, our first baby and school, not leaving much room for research in deed…!
Nevertheless, I was on the right track 13 years ago when it comes to the direction I was heading, building my On-Line biz at the time. Back in those days, every piece of information related to this subject manner was extremely costly, full of expensive webinars, instructional DVD’s, useless e-books, ECT. All of this did not really thought you anything… Not to mention the confusing MLM programs, expensive leads list and wasted time with the one button program packages design to make it easy with a simple push of a button once install lol ;)… Yet, the installation could proved to be near to impossible, especially for a newbie…!
As life went on, I heard about On-Line marketing biz here and there, as I tried to ignore the information, close my ears, eyes and walk away before I became too curious. Consequently, involved before I knew it, getting no results ending up frustrated feeling hopeless and powerless, but most of all angry and just plain upset... At myself for convincing me to waist my time and money, allowing myself to get sucked back into this unprofitable vicious cycle ;(…!
There were times; I wanted this On-Line biz to work out so bad I allowed myself to get involved in Amway… Avon… Monavi… Pre-paid Legal… Scenty… Travel Agency… Herbalife only to later find out that they indeed were great opportunities but without knowing how to navegate the web and establish your products presence, brand, along with knowing how to drive traffic to your website in order to increase your biz exposure its all futile…! Unless you go door to door and even then there are no guarantees that you will successfully sell or place your entire product…!
Personally, I totally understood this to a certain extent, but deep inside I just knew there had to be a way to provide a product or service without having to come up with a big investment having the need to keep inventory. Moreover, all the additional problems that implicate a sell on line with delivery, the terrible stories from Ebay and more.
At this point, force by life’s circumstances I was too busy taking care of daily life with barely enough time to just breath. See my family as we cross each other in the hallway as one arrived from work the other took off to work… life went on this way for a few years, until we realized that our child needed more of our time…!
Finally, I fell sick in 2012 facing my own demised and experiencing my absolute destruction as I witness all of my hard work of having a business degree go up inflames right before my eye. As I am face with a health issue that I was not prepared for, at all. Stopping my whole life right on its tracks… Literary. Forcing me to analyzed myself on the spot to re-evaluate why I had been working so hard…? For what…? For who…? I had made all the sacrifices of getting a degree, a career, where had this taken me and how had this help me in my life…?
From 2012 to 2015, I was being bed ridding not having the strength to even pick up the cell phone because it was too heavy for my brittle wrists. Moreover, my mind had just been experiencing a terrible set back, it had grown terribly weak, forgetful and loosing sight of reality for a few minutes before realizing where I was. The small side effect, courtesy of the pain pills I taken for a pro-long period of time, since that was the only way I was able to endure the excruciating pain which I experienced 24/7 on those days…!
At this point, my mind was gone. I was no longer able to actually read and comprehend what I was reading without getting a headache facing a huge wall of confusion thus, not being able to focus on nothing but the overwhelming feeling of not being able to just comprehend simple directions. At times I could not remember the last word I had just red lol. My memory was fading fast as I started struggling with remembering my own name, birth, address and phone number, even my short-term memory was suffering forgetting things from one minute to the next lol.
I thought all of it was lost by now as I fearfully look into the scary future that was awaiting for me and that I been fighting with everything I got because I refuse to become part of that scary world of pain and solitude…! Somehow, thru my Heavenly Father’s power and thru his grace, I manage to sum up the courage, the strength and the commitment to hold on to a little part of my broken and betting up soul before I lost all hope. Along, with the support and help of my husband and daughter we were able to pull through as a family, being able to live another day together lol ;)…!
Very slowly, I focus on regaining my life back as I found myself completely immobilized from head to toe…! Therefore, as my husband look for ways to help, he started downloading all type of different brain game applications as a means to pass my time while being able to gain some control of my lost coordination, helping strengthen my mind with each game I played on my cell. 6 months later I became more mentally active as I lay on bed or sat on the couch looking like a stiff dead vegetable ;)…!
I remember being extremely frustrated at the beginning, having my anger get the best of me as I send my cell flying a few times across the room when I felt incapable of moving forward on a level. I used to cry my eyes out uncontrollably, beating myself up by believing that I was never going to be able to be all the things I used to be and do. Before I knew it, 6 months had gone by and I was no longer crying my eyes out of frustration, rather excited and re-learning how to upload, download and navigate my own game applications actively. By now I was playing games most of my waking time, keeping my mind busy, distracted as my motor and mental skills seem sharper ;)…!
Then I became a big girl, my wrist grew stronger and I was now able to return to facebook giving me the opportunity to view the actual world that I did no longer belong to since last time I had checked in. Since then, all I did was rest in bed, the couch. Again, the beginning proved to be very confusing and frustrating at times because I had the energy to like things but adding comments had prove to be a challenge for myself since my fingers are so stiff making it not easy to type in a simple comment… Then, hubby suggested that I could use the voice application so I would not have to type. Yet, again I was face with a huge challenge due to my accent, it prove not very helpful for me. So, I pushed my self to type comments forcing me to read posts and before I knew it. Here I was some time later being able to join groups and actually posting comments with tons of mistakes but I was now able to make coherent short sentences at least…!
Later on, I started actually editing my comments becoming more proficient on my spelling lol… While on this journey, as my mind seem to improve its comprehension level; I started exploring visiting websites from the facebook application venturing out here and there. I soon discover the quiz applications, totally love that for simple daily entertainment.
All of the sudden, I was up early ready to put my morning posts and gym goals, just like with the games… As I became better, the time spent on it increased, by now I was no longer interested in game applications, nor I was going to go on facebook anymore, I was ready for something new… my confidence was groing as my horizons started to expand, exploring the internet lol ;)…!
The whole world was at my fingertips, thanks to my cell and so… I jumped into the net and search, explored, checked out and found this peculiar site that talked about learning to make money on line and so, I got more information and join this program when I realized that all the needed information, tools, skills and support were provided for me to just be creative. I had found Wealthy Affiliate and after a 7 day trial in this community I realized that I have come a long way from the grave that at one point had echo my name numerous times lol…!
My point is… If you ever felt the need to do something and for one reason or another it just do not seem to come together is because everything the universe provides including knowledge will come when the student is fully ready… NOT WHEN THE STUDENT THINKS HE IS READY ;)…!
