I am 25 years old. Growing up, I was lead to believe that you have to be content with what you have, that somehow wanting more is a bad thing. Whenever I wanted something, my barrier was that I shouldn’t want it because a) it is outside of my parents means and b) it was somehow bad to want something more that I didn’t need. I should only want to be comfortable.
I say this is a BS ideology. It is okay to want more, it’s okay to want money.
BUT Don’t chase money for the sake of chasing money. If you truly help your community, and be passionate about helping people, money will follow.
That is why I dropped out of my masters program in Biology and started a local marketing company 3 months ago.
How did I get started with this? Well I started out with wanting to make money passively. So of course I was drawn into MLM (multi-level marketing). This is a ridiculous industry making it seem like everyone can do it. I wasn’t too sure about it but I took the risk and invested in a program anyway.
Then I stumbled upon a program that was teaching a different business model for making money through internet marketing. This model was using the internet to generate leads for local businesses. It is a great model and all the steps are laid out for you. I still haven’t made any money with this either.
BUT with this type of business model I am seeing so much more of a potential than anything. I feel like the past 3 months It is my fault that I haven’t made any money. I was too focused on my goal of making $1000 dollars per month by 3 months that I didn’t do much to make that kind of money. I was procrastinating and not putting any effort. I was not willing to change my behaviors to match the life I wanted.
Currently I have 2 lead generating websites that I have been desperately trying to get to the first page. One of them is http://www.dfwmetrogaragerepair.com/ I have been taking what I believe are massive actions towards achieving this goal of wanting to make $1000 per month.
So here I am, I dropped out of school, jumped into a business, Invested ALOT of money, still haven’t made any money back, but I refuse to give up on this and my dreams.
Here is a video that made me change the way I viewed my goals and why I think I failed to achieve my 3 month goal.
