Sweet Girl Fans, i came to overhaul this page and make it sound more gangsterly. and i probably will some day. however, this is the very profile bio i grew up on this site with. you can see how lame it was but also why it worked, right? (the links and everything they lead to probably won't work in 2010). Enjoy this piece of online marketing history:
So it wasn't really much of a surprise that at 6 years old I told mum and dad, "I want to be an Engineer when I grow up."
But I didn't get a whole lot of social grooming.
That didn't matter, because I was just starting to realise that there was money to be made from their lack of knowledge.
How I was Born Into Internet Marketing
I used the money I made to pay for 9 years of university. So it wasn't all bad :)
Having attended postgraduate school, you'll find I'm a bit different from most Home Business and Internet marketers.
I won't be telling you some sad story about dropping out from school and living under a bridge. I've always made smart and profitable decisions. I always worked my butt off.
But it's not my 4 university degrees that gave me the "work-from-home", travel wherever-I-want, Jaguar-driving, beach-bumming, extraordinary lifestyle I enjoy.
No...it was something else, much less...umm "exclusive".
Actually, I was a terrible marketer. I don't even write that well and my dad who's an English professor still gives me a hard time about my spelling! I'm not really fluent on the telephone, I'm ridiculously shy, I hesitate and spend WEEKS slaving over editing out all my mistakes from the tutorial videos I make for you guys.
How Network Marketing Stole My PhD
When I got started in Network Marketing in 2006, I dragged a few poor friends of mine in with me. They only came along because they respected me. But I had no clue how to market or sell anything and none of us made any money.
For nearly a year, I burned a hole in my wallet and lost every single cent of my tiny PhD scholarship (it barely covered my Sydney rent anyway.)
I was miserable and broke and I couldn't even afford to eat or go to uni.
But one day, everything changed.
No it wasn't that I decided to stop listening to my upline (although I did), and no it wasn't that I came across some crazy magic system that made me rich over night.
Nothing so theatric actually.
I just made a decision that I will NEVER stop trying until I cracked the code. I needed to BE The Expert on Network Marketing.
Knowing that I couldn't go on like this much longer, I asked myself "What is the most important thing I need right now to make money?"
I needed prospects, people to talk to.
The only way I'd been taught to market my business was by talking to lots of people about it.
But I didn't know many people and had crappy social skills. Making new friends was going to be difficult. There was no choice but to learn the social skills I didn't bother to learn as a child.
Until the age of 25, I thought I could live a fulfilled life with nothing more than a few basic social skills.
Before one month was up, I had made more friends than I had made in my whole life. And they weren't just friends...I had fans, admirers, even stalkers.
By consistently taking one new step of action every day, no matter how small, I moved to the next phase.
Soon after I was reading stacks of books on persuasion, body language, human psychology, and even dating. I attended courses and pushed myself beyond my comfort zone.
Finally, I began to enrol distributors. Sometimes I enrolled as many as 8 distributors in a single week.
There were weeks when I produced over $20,000.00 in sales. But my troubles weren't over just yet.
There is no magic system that will just hand you free leads and customers. Success in business isn't a secret. Whether you're marketing online or offline, your income is controlled simply by how much action you take.
You may have all the knowledge and skills in the world, but without action you'll never make money. So don't kid yourself by thinking that all you need is someone's latest, greatest, marketing system.
If you aren't prepared to make the same decision I did, you should just stick to your dull day-job.
Why I Gave Up My $2,000/week Pay Cheque and Started Again With a $50 Note
The problem was that no one else that I recruited was willing to spend a year losing money. No one was willing to give up their careers to sit in a cafe all day reading books.
Fact is, most people will NEVER make a solid residual income from their Home Business simply because they won't do even simple tasks that they need to do.
I knew I had to create a really simple rejection free and step-by-step solution that ANYONE could use to get unlimited leads and prospects on a tiny budget.
I stopped going to the cafes and spent all my time at home researching how to market on the internet.
The Internet presented an opportunity to get massive duplication. I could reach out to the world as an audience without any barriers. I know if there was a way to become the expert, I had to find it online.
I began by setting my budget to just $50. I used simple 20 word advertisements with very little chance to add creative marketability to the wording.
Because if I could prove that with just $50 and a limited skill set, one could still build up a few hundred dollars a week of income...I would have solved the thorniest problem of every Network Marketer.
In just 8 days, I had cashflow.
But, only when I saw that I was making a solid residual, weekly income did I take these strategies and introduce them to my downline.
I'll admit, very few of them even bothered to try the techniques.
On the other hand, that tiny group of my downline that tried saw their first sale EVER in just 2 days.
People who had never made a cent in any business were strangely profiting in mere days.
And that's when I knew I was onto something.
