Following What “Society” Says
Are you a follower? Have you been sucked into what society says you must do to be successful? Did your parents, teachers and other role models tell you that in order for you to make it in this world you had to go to school and get a “job”? Yep I know I totally get it ….I was too!! I did everything that my parents wanted me to do..I went to college got a ton of degrees and got a “job”! Woo hoo….yeh me..right? Well I thought it was right until I was introduced to a whole new world of network marketing and I thought OMG why didn’t someone ever tell me about this before I got into a ton of debt in student loans…lol!
Why was it so taboo to work for yourself and build a career in network marketing?
Honestly I believe it’s a conspiracy….all our lives we were trained to go to school 5 days a week for 8hrs a day and then go to work 5 days a week 8 hrs a day all to be working for someone else making them rich. Now let me say this…..if you are someone who wants to be a doctor, nurse, lawyer or something like that yes you need to go to college, there’s no way around that. The thing is most people go to college and end up in a career that has nothing to do with what they went to school for and they are MISERABLE and honestly proabaly didn’t even need a college degree to do what they are doing plus 8 out of 10 people hate their jobs…yes that’s a true statistic.
The problem is that they don’t know what to do about hating their job, because that is all they know or they are scared to make a change. By making a change I mean working towards what makes you tick. If money wasn’t an object they would be doing what they really want to do with their lives. Yeah I know it’s hard to think that you can make a living doing what you love! Some people just can’t get their heads around it. I digress….
Here’s the thing it’s not going to be easy….yes you have to put in work…but oh my darling it is soooo worth it!!!
Benefits of Doing What You Love
Think about your life….say you’re married you have kids and you have to put your kids in daycare so you can go to work. Now someone else is keeping your children the majority of the time. You are missing out on so much all because you have to go punch the clock…..wouldn’t you rather be home with your kids?
Here’s another scenario…your child is sick but you have no one to take care of them and you can’t miss work because you have a huge presentation to give to a client and it will make or break your career you could possibly be fired….so you take your kid to daycare and give them some medicine to hopefully hold them over until you can get off……
Oh here’s one…your kids have a school play in the middle of the day and because once again you have to work you miss it and your kids are disappointed that you couldn’t make it.
Have I tugged on any heart strings yet?
Suddenly being your own boss and having control of your own schedule is starting to look good!
But how do you do it?
Well first things first what do you love?
Do you like to make things like jewelry? Well how would you capitalize on that?
Here’s what I would do. I would start off making as much jewelry as possible to have a good inventory. Then I would build a website and put my jewelry up for sale. I would call my friends over for a jewelry party and test the waters by seeing how they like it. I would start making videos on how to make jewelry and give tutorials and build a blog all about jewelry. Once my blog was established and started to get a nice amount of traffic (meaning people coming to my blog) I would put a few google adsense ads on it and start getting paid for ad clicks. I would point people to shop on my website. I would also ask them to sign up to get my newsletter so I could grab their email and start marketing to them on a continuous basis and they get to know me and want to buy more jewelry from me. I’d make sure I was visible on all social media platforms.
Are you starting to get it now….that’s just a snippet of course there’s a little more to it, but that’s it! You can teach yourself this stuff it’s really not rocket science and you’re not spending a fortune on college.
