It all starts with this first blog post…
Here at the supplemental mom (or really its just me), I’m about to embark on the digital journey to making money online. Like many of you, I’m a working mom, and wife an novice blogger, trying to gain financial freedom of some sort and on a mission to do so not only for my family, but helping others as well.
This is my journey so far, I work as an educator and as much as I love what I do I have been looking for something different, creative and challenging, yet lucrative (isn’t that why we are all here). So, I decided to embark on a journey to figure out how I could make either some or most of my income online. About 6 months ago, I started diving into it head first, doing mad amounts of research on, internet marketing, e-commerce exc…and as I have a tendency to want to start a lot of things and not finish them, all of this information was very overwhelming. I decided to pick one, try and master it and actually stick with it.
After starting my own business, I thought if I build it they will come. That couldn’t have been farther from the truth. The one thing I really had not done much research on was marketing and I just figured all of my friends and family would come and flock to my store and buy all my product. Sadly, not one person I knew had bought from me. Great I thought what do I do now ?
At this point I had to figure something out. I had spent a lot of time and effort on my business and because I’m stubborn, I was not going to give up. I dove right back into my research and made my way into the internet marketing world. This I thought, was going to be my win at the finish line of what I needed to succeed. I found that I could not do this on my own and I needed help, a mentor even. I stayed up late night after the kids were in bed listening to podcasts and webinars on how I could get a business started and how I could make money online. I finally broke down and invested into a program that I knew could help.
Here is where my journey has brought me so far…
1. Get advice from others so you get ideas on how to make money geared towards your long term goals.
2. Listen to people who have created wealth and who know what it takes to do so.
3. Don’t sit on the sidelines and watch life pass you buy and dream about what you could have had, make it happen.
