Develop The Best Social Media Marketing with These Tips

dilbert_funny_sales_cartoon_twitter_social_media

Getting yourself set up online with social media is now becoming an absolute necessity for any business, whether based in a physical location or just an online business.   As a Social Media Consultant, I can tell you I learned the ins and outs of this industry, and I decided to write this blog article to give you some heads up tips about how to develop the best social media marketing with these tips i’m about to share with you.   In this  article I will show you how to effectively market your company using this new marketing media outlet.  It’s not as hard as you might think it is.

 

Think twice about paying for a professional social media marketing service. For starters, their black hat techniques are often seen as spam and will degrade your reputation.

 

These companies use proxy servers and registration bots to create thousands of accounts on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. Because these services use abusive tactics, your message is generally not seen by too many real people, as the view counts are fake and the fraudulent accounts are generally terminated fairly quickly.

 

Don’t get me wrong.  Not every Social Media Marketer does this.  I’m talking about “some” out there that call themselves companies, where behind this “company” is basically a one person show using the methods mentioned above.

 

So don’t buy in the hype, make sure you pick the right social media consultant to do this job.  Someone you can trust.  Make sure you have a 1-on-1 talk from time to time.  In my case, my clients are like “friends” on a professional level.  They trust me and I trust them.  With this type of relationship you are into good things, big things!  This could lead you to getting more gigs.

 

When to use the “Like box”?

You should put a ‘like’ box on the top of your blog page.   Doesn’t matter how many social media profiles you are on, you need to make sure everyone can see where you are on.  Remember if they can’t see you they won’t visit you.  This will make it easy for people to “like” your content , in your website or blog.

 

I personally use a WordPress plug that pops up, when someone visits my website it pops up asking them to like my profile on Facebook.   The easier you make it for your users, the more likely people will “like” your page and increase your exposure.    If you noticed my website is very user friendly.  Everything is always on the outlines of my website so its easy to navigate, and my Social Media Profile Icons are available to “Like”.

Sharing

Make sure you add a sharing icon in every post and every article you write in your blog or website.    Make sure that your content is interesting and unique,  so that other social media users will want to share it with others.   People succeed by using social media, but only if their content sticks out from others, then you could be considered an authoritative figure in the online world.

If you are out of ideas, you can always find inspiration online or from family and friends, Yahoo Trends, Google Trends, any viral social site you can find on line.

 

The Power of Image and Correct Dimensions

Try adding pictures to your social media site. People get a better understanding of a product when they can literally see it. And, when people understand your product, they are more likely to purchase it. You do not need to have too many pictures, just a few should do the job.  Be creative with your pictures.  For new users I suggest starting off with the Diptic App.  Create your own posters for you to share in a heartbeat.

Screen Shot 2014-09-16 at 3.10.39 μ.μ.

Make sure the dimensions of your posters and pictures are compatible to the social media profile you are trying to upload them on.  It’s  imperative that you make sure you are using the correct sizes, so they are shown properly while they are being shared.  You really don’t want to be sharing posters that are not that attractive to the eye.  Neither posters that are half cut etc.    That could be damaging to your own Social Media Marketing reputation as a Social Media Consultant.

 

With a quick search on Google you can get all that information on how to find the right dimensions for your pictures that you are uploading.  Try using “Social Media Cheat Sheet” in Google Search.  You’ll get all the info needed.

Screen Shot 2014-09-16 at 3.15.53 μ.μ.

Make sure you create a logo for your business or brand.  In each poster or picture, try adding the logo on there.  Preferably, in some corner, and try making it a little discreet.  Think of it like your “reusable shopping bag” where you have your brand on it.  Each picture or poster you send out in social media, is your “shopping bag” for others to pick up and use it themselves.  You’ll have to know where that bag came from.

 

Just allow people to share your product, your creation.  Imagine the power in that.  Don’t forget to add your official web address on there as well.   Make sure you use Pinterest in all of this.  Pinterest is becoming HUGE in Social Media Sharing.  Easy free traffic could be generated by creating a business profile on Pinterest.

You need to Give to Get

In order to increase your follower list or likes, you’ll need to have exclusive offers that potential customers and users  can only obtain by following you.   When users  notice deals open only to Facebook followers, they are sure to give you greater attention and share the information with friends.

like-share-and-win--4

To make your social media marketing campaign successfully and stand out, you will need market your brand and sell yourself as an industry authority.   Instead of plugging your products, produce engaging content that entertains, educates and even inspires people.   If you happen to create something that goes just a little viral due to the share button, your company name is getting out there.  Make sure you don’t over do it with your products and services.  You don’t want to “annoy” your readers with the same thing everyday.

 

Help your followers, or users  stick around with giving them interesting things for them to work with.  For example, I try giving value to my subscribed readers.  They subscribed for a reason.  So my job is to give them more information on what it is they are asking for.

 

Personally , in my social media profiles that I manage for my business and clients,  I’m using the 70/30 sharing rule.

 

What this means is, in a day if I post ten times,  seven of  those ten times will be about everything that is not my business , and three times during this day I  would mention my business, products, or whatever services I have to offer.     You really don’t want others “unsubscribing” or “un-liking” you.  There will be a lot of those, but that’s fine, there is an abundance of “potential” new likes every day

 

You just need to be out there for them to see you.

 

 

Goals and Objectives

Try to map out your objectives and goals for participation when starting a social media marketing campaign. Make them available throughout the company so that everyone within the organization is on the same page. Results from social media marketing will be more productive and better focused when all activities are aligned and working towards the same goals.Destroy-Your-Goals

 

 

For large companies, social media marketing can be a labor intensive, complicated, and non-standardized task where efficiency can be elusive.

 

Many ad agencies and social media agencies are still trying to understand how to effectively market to the masses and are making it up as they go. So be careful where you spend your money and make sure you are getting measurable results from your marketing campaign.

 

 

When running a social media marketing campaign, brag about how many followers you have from time to time. If someone sees that 1500 people are following you, they may join up too just so they do not get left out of what their friends already know about. The desire to stay in the know and be trendy can be your friend.

 

 

As you can see from this article, while social media can seem intimidating for someone who hasn’t spent much time on it, it is really quite simple.   But really its for people that have the time.  Let me warn you that it could be very time consuming.  Especially in the creative part.

 

Creating a poster could take several hours, just trying to get the concept and idea down together with the edits that you could be doing.  Or maybe your are creating a paid advertising campaign.  You have to create everything, the content, the poster , and find the relevant keywords to help you target the exact demographic you are targeting.

 

Budget?

In terms of budget, well social media is actually something that is free and simple.  But it all depends on how much impact you want to have.  You could do it yourself, and test things out or hire that professional to  do it for you , with tested methods that prove conversions.

free

Budget Varies throughout the online world.  It could be per hour, or per week, or per month.   It really depends on the ad agency, or social media consultant.  I prefer charging monthly.  Without hours, so I can give my “Creative” self some room of creation.  I feel if I’m on the clock, I’m tied down and have no freedom to create.

 

Really, I hate being on the clock. It reminds me of my 9-5.  This job is something I love, so I prefer doing it my way, this way I can guarantee good results to my clients.

 

So if you do hire a professional , make sure you know who you are talking to, and also make sure you understand how they work.  How do they gain their followers, and likes?  If it’s paid advertising then that’s fine, however like I mentioned previously, there are some shady ways of gaining followers and likes, which are not good for your business.   These are called  “black hat” techniques.  Just heads up on who you hire!

 

 

These are some ideas where someone could get started.  I didn’t go into detail in regards to which social media profiles to use etc.  This is another topic I will open up another time, and wouldn’t want to expand on this here.

Choosing the Right Web-hosting for your Business

webhostingmagnifyingglass
How would you expect to solve an issue with your website? How would you do this if you do not understand web-hosting enough to navigate the changes you need.  This article is to help you in Choosing the Right Web-hosting for your business. It seems that, 2014 is a year where many people are learning how to build their own websites. I’m one of them.  There are so many hosting companies available for those who do not understand technical online jargon.

Read the following article and I think I’m going to help you decide which web hosting service you will choose, that is right for you, or your business, or your blog. Whatever your pleasure.

Web-hosting Offers

First of all , you need to check the hosting site to find out what kind of sites they can offer.  A lot of free services will only provide you with th the tools necessary to build your own websites or let you use their templates, but not add overly dynamic personal scripts.  If you cannot find the kind of dynamic scripts you want to use, look for a paying for a plan instead.

The ideal web-hosting for you

When you choose a web hosting company, select one that resides in the specific country of the audience you are targeting.

For instance, if your site primarily targets people who live in the US, the data center of your web host should be located there. Don’t get me wrong, you can still choose whomever you want, even if its not in the country you are targeting. Just saying, its better for those instances.

Choose a hosting service that allows you to instantly and easily view your web statistics.  You will want to know things such as how many people are visiting your website and what pages they are viewing.

You can even find out how long they stayed on your site, and what search words they used to find you. These can be important in the long run, so use a server which offers those tools.

After all, your first website build is the one that will teach you lessons – not make you a ton of profits.

You may end up with a lot of downtime, and you’ll have ads that aren’t yours, but you’ll get an intro to running your own site. Make the most of your profitability of your website by closely looking into the many web hosting services that want your business.

You can be asked to pay as little as $1 per month to hundreds or thousands for your own dedicated server, but the least expensive ones can often prove the most reliable.

While you will often see bandwidth increase if you pay for a higher priced host, the lower priced options might not mean any increase in downtime, which should influence your final decision.

You should never pay in advance for hosting services.

Many companies will offer you a discount to sign up for a longer term. What if the hosting company goes bust?  Worse yet, what if you do not like something about the hosting company and wish to switch? It is better to pay as you go with web hosting.

Blue host is an example of paying up front.



I had to learn the hard way, by thinking I was paying monthly, something like I am at Host Gator, or at Wealthy Affiliate.

HostGator’s service is monthly. However, with BlueHost you pay up front. Suddenly, when I moved my new domain to Blue Host, I chose the plan for 3 years, at 3 dollars a month. Suddenly I got charged over 290 bucks….but thank god, they allowed me to change my plan, and didn’t go for the up-sells. Special Security features etc, back up plans etc.

So the cheapest price at blue host is around 60$ for 12 months. UPFRONT.

Look its not that bad for what it offers.

Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 11.15.25 μ.μ.

So if you are a person that doesn’t like paying upfront, then Blue Host is not for you.

But if you are interested, you can check for a domain right below using Blue hosts Domain Finder.

Search Domain through Blue Host

 

If you are looking for a month to month hosting services, then you should look into  HostGator .

Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 11.20.00 μ.μ.

As you have read in this article, every web hosting site differs greatly from one another.  I’m going to create a review for each one at some point, but for now, I’m just mentioning the ones I’ve used personally, since my journey as an Affiliate Marketer, I have designed a few websites, including this one right here, and I’ve also transferred to other domains, checking everything out .  So I have my share of experiences on which hosts you should choose.

Follow these tips to learn which features are essential for your site.

Comparison shopping makes it easier to locate the provider that can best meet your needs, and at a price that is within your budget.

 

So really its a win win situation. You don’t have to pay for anything if you don’t want to. Simple as that.

Some hosting sites that might interest you…

  1. Host Gator
  2. Blue Host
  3. Namescheap
  4. 1&1

Thanks for reading! See you inside!

Side effects of Making Money Online at Home

working-from-home
Today , there’s a lot of talk about working online at home and making money. Everyone seems to becoming some kind of Freelancer. I think this is pretty cool, however, there are some Side Effects of Making money online at home. Not all are fun and games…

 

People like myself, might enjoy the comfort of my own home. I know being 12 years in the corporate world, being in a cubicle, or an office, wasn’t something I wanted. It really is not for everyone. I wanted to have my own hours, and my own time and never to be secluded in an area where I have to be there daily.

 

I never thought I’d be working from home, but as dreams change, goals change, and as we grow, we start to realize what we want to do. For me, I was 27. For others it could be earlier, or later. Doesn’t matter. At one point of time, you will question yourself. Where am I? Why am I here? Do I really want to do this for the rest of my life?

 

That Itch!

Something inside me was itching to try out new things. Not stick around to routine. Again, this is not for everyone. Action takers? Yes, Risk takers? Sure, how bout people that just don’t feel right doing whatever they are doing to make ends-meet? Hell yes…

rebel-without-a-cause

Personally, I had to break lose. I had to break that chain of “sheep” type life. Following suit with society is not my cup of tea. Call me a rebel, but I had a cause. I wanted to follow my dream.

 

I used to enjoy getting that monthly check, however, I don’t think I was grateful for it. I think I enjoy it more now, not amount-wise, but more…responsible. Life has become more interesting, and especially when testing ones own abilities, or expanding knowledge and getting rewired to having a positive mindset, everything around you can change for the better.

 

Positive Mindset

Amazing how our thought process changes throughout our lives. I remember once thinking, how sure I was, that I would never read another book in my life. Why? Cause I had the craziest thought and belief , that my obligation to finish school, and university was complete. And that I felt that I knew everything!. How….hmm. How ignorant I was.

DpapaquoteAlbertEinstein

We as humans, evolve. We learn new things and try out new things. We basically want to follow our dreams. That is what I believe life is all about. Living your own life, the way you want to. Forgetting what others are saying, criticizing, or judging… I say just believe in what you want to believe in. What you learn and what you do , is clearly your work and doing.

 

No one should be an obstacle to whatever it is you want to achieve. You yourself is responsible for their own well being. Not your Mom, not your Dad, not your sister,not your brother, not your best friend, not even your enemy. You yourself and your beliefs is what makes you…YOU.

 

Sometimes, tough times, call in for some people to get up and make a change in them or anything around them.

 

My job here is to help others, understand that they can do what they love and shouldn’t be jealous of the others that have made it. You can make it too. I’m making it…I’m gonna make it. I had to learn the hard way, but knowing the way now makes me more confident in how my future is forming up.

 

There will be some drаwbасkѕ that will probably change in the nеxt few years when most реорlе in ѕосіеtу wіll ѕtаrt wоrkіng аt hоmе оnlіnе. Eаrnіng mоnеу оnlіnе at hоmе, which tоdау is juѕt a bеgіnnіng of a trеnd аnd most оf іtѕ drаwbасkѕ are undіѕсоvеrеd аnd unѕtudіеd just yet. Even though, for now its one profitable business. Feel like there is an abundance of wealthy for anyone interested.

 

This trеnd оf wоrkіng frоm hоmе аnd earning mоnеу оnlіnе can роѕе ѕеrіоuѕ thrеаt tо оur ѕосіаl ѕtruсturе оthеr thаn a numbеr оf problems for іndіvіduаls who have a family to raise. Wоrkіng frоm hоmе on іntеrnеt is lіkе working іn a vіrtuаl еnvіrоnmеnt аnd virtual оffісe, whеrе еvеrуthіng that еxіѕtѕ nоw mау nоt еxіѕt tоmоrrоw or even аftеr a few mіnutеѕ.

 

The downsides to working online

 

1.  Your Love is also a Curse

Working on something you love, and from home, could have its downsides. You don’t really pay attention to what’s going on around your house, except for the pc you are on. When I’m hungry, I don’t eat. I kinda keep forgetting to head to the kitchen.

 

2. There is no place like home

Well, home is not really missed since I’m in it for so many hours within the day. You can’t really relax as I used to relax when coming home from work. But see that’s the problem. Whenever I did come back from the office, I didn’t have the motivation to do new things. I just wanted to relax. Now I feel that instead of relaxing, I can be making money online. Or learning something new online. Or growing, or just tapping in the power of this universe.

 

3. Nо social іntеrасtіоn

Whеn wе earn mоnеу оnlіnе by wоrkіng at hоmе, we hardly mоvе оut of the hоuѕе, bесаuѕе if wе аrе еаrnіng gооd money, we’ll like to work more and еаrn mоrе mоnеу due to the grееd that comes out of our humаn nature. For me personally, is not really greed, but more of a bet with myself and proof that one can make it alone, and follow their dreams as long as they take action and without following the fear that is brought to them by society when growing up.

 

On thе оthеr hаnd if wе аrе not еаrnіng аnу mоnеу оr аrе lоѕіng mоnеу then wе wіll like tо make ѕоmе changes аnd іmрrоvеmеntѕ in our work, thеrеfоrе wе’ll ѕреnd some mоrе time online аt home. Thіѕ means we dоn’t іntеrасt wіth ѕосіеtу, wе spend our time іn online societies whісh аrе virtual. This is one оf thе major drawback whісh wіll bring a mаjоr change іn social structure аѕ people wіll wоrk аt hоmе and ѕреnd time оnlіnе, rеѕultіng in a poor and mееk ѕосіеtу. A subject оf іntеrеѕt fоr social ѕсіеntіѕtѕ.

Not that this hasn’t affected the already existing problem we are facing with smartphones and society. You know what i’m talking about. You know, 4 friends, out for coffee, for 4 friends to be starring at their phones so they can do their “check-ins” or to “like” each other’s “Check-ins”… Seriously

 

But anyways, thank god for my dog Clooney, if it wasn’t for him, my social aspect would be non existent.

IMG_0025

 

These are some of thе ѕіdе-еffесtѕ of mаkіng money online аt home, maybe thеѕе are nоt thought рrоvоkіng, but they dо exist and have a major іmрасt оn bоth оur еаrnіng money оnlіnе аnd working аt hоmе.

 

Don’t get me wrong… I love working from home.   The benefits are even more in my book.

work-from-home-guide

 

My life is a challenge, and i’m experiencing LIFE as never before.  Nothing is the same for me.  Each day holds suprises for me.  Good and bad, i’ll take them in and cherish them, because, this is our path,  EXPERIENCE life to the fullest, doing what we love!

 

Thіѕ article is just a brief outline and just a preliminary report.  These issues must be considered before starting a full time based earning program, as everyone can’t make adjustments all the time, even if you’re making a crazy amount online working from home.

 

If you don’t know where to start, you can follow my own footsteps.

 

The thing about working online from home, is basically the freedom someone has.  When someone is making mad money, then you have all the time in the world to do what you love best.  Just as long as you have an internet connection and computer of some sort, you can be anywhere in this world you choose to be.

How to Develop the Right Mind-Set to Reach your Goals

Look, to be honest with you,  3 years ago, sometime in 2011 I had a major change in me.  In order to learn how to develop the right mind-set to reach your goals, you need to basically WAKE UP.  What I mean by wake up, I mean, start questioning life.  Ask yourself.  Are you happy where you’re at?  Are you happy with what you’re  doing?wakeup

For me It was a Friday night, at my usual “club” scene, and I was just hanging out, but really wondering, WHAT AM I DOING HERE?   I felt, old, I felt I was wasting my life in a club with a drink in my hand.

Something inside me was trying to get a hold of my “autopilot” that I was taking part of my life at the time.  I was doing my routine, and my inside was calling to break the routine once and forever.

Things changed…something changed.  Now I understand why…

I’ve started learning about having a right mind-set.  I started hearing about the Law of Attraction.

I remember reading The Secret way back when it came out.  I thought I knew how life worked back then.  But I was so wrong,  you can’t even imagine.

I think the secret worked just for like  a week.  After that I think i got tired.  I was doing it all wrong.  I was focusing on the wrong things, on the materialistic things in life.

Just understood it the wrong way, because I was so obsessed into money.  If I had no money then things just weren’t happy in my world.   My god, thinking back then, how wrong it was to even BE in that state of mind.

Everything just took a downfall for me, and NOW I know why.  I can safely go back in my life and recap at what happened, and where it all went wrong.  But I wouldn’t really call it a bad thing, because if that never happened,  I wouldn’t be here today, doing what I love the most.  Basically living my dream.

I had to go through phases, and levels (as I Like to call it), and right now I’m on a very high level of understanding how this beautiful universe works.

We got laws surrounding  us which we control.  We really do.   I’ve reached my goals since I’ve set forth on this journey of finding out the truth about us and myself.  And I feel that since that time I started reading certain books, I’ve experienced my manifestations and they are all over this blog.   You can go back to one of my  first postings, and you can see the transformation of where I was to where I’m going.

I already know where I’m ending up at …

header-universe

At the end of the day, no matter what happens, we have the power to choose our thoughts about any  event that takes place in our lives.  By Developing the right mind-set, it will help you reach your goals.

I’ve been rewiring my brain for the past 3 years now, and right now I’ve just scraped the top of the mountain I’m on.  I got so much to go, but I’m glad I know how. I can show you what books to read to maybe speed up your process in understanding and believing.  Without believing you won’t get anywhere.

There’s Work Involved

Just like anything else in life that is worth having, developing the right mind-set has a little bit of work involved. However, this work is not too painful.

It really is a matter of training your brain and resetting it to a program you want to replay over and over again.I-Have-Work-To-Do

You must make an effort everyday to listen to how many times the voice of negativity comes to visit.  When you hear that voice of negativity that wants to sabotage your success, keeps you unsafe, and makes you fearful, you must work hard to change  it.

You also need to pay attention to our little voice in our belly, or should I say gutt feeling?  That’s one important voice you need to listen to.  We seem to always ignore it.  We really shouldn’t.  That’s the voice of truth.

I can see my words coming out my thoughts.  If they are negative, I can no spot it, and change it immediately.  Before, I woudn’t even realize how much negativity was coming out of my mouth, or mind.  Your every thought is basically an order to the universe.

Even when saying,  “I have no money ” unfortunately, you’ve just placed an order,  so you get more of that “NO MONEY” in your bank account.

Trust me, been through that too many times.   I hated myself for being in that state of mind, but by choosing to accept that then, and move on to new things now, its helping me understand how grateful I was in that position to feel that thought of failure.   I’m smelling success already.

Try and remind yourself that every negative thought that goes out will have a negative reaction in your life.  Its basically what we like to call Karma.  You need to go back into your life, and think of all those times when you had your worst day.  Think about why that happened.

Same goes for the good days.  Think of why that happened.  When you connect  the two you’ll notice that it was you all along that created those instances in your life.

Same goes for the things you’ve obtained in your life.  Your favorite things and the things you hated.  Your favorite things were your own manifestations, done when subconsciously you were making an order, when you first thought about it, or you really humbly thought about having it.

When you were so humble, you didn’t even realize, you obtained your “gift” sometime later on.  Right?  come on, think…remember, connect the two you’ll see where I’m going with this.

Practice this daily, and start going back in your life, just so you can start believing.  If you can’t believe there is a force that transmits from your brain to the universe, then this might not work at all.  You need to be open minded.

Re-train your Brain

Once you have recognized the negative talk and realize it is not valid, move on to the next step, which is to re-train your brain. Take that thought of, “What if I fail?” and change it to ” How I will succeed?”banksyeinstein

Retraining your brain takes practice every day. The use of positive affirmations is a useful tool in retraining your brain. Although it might feel a bit awkward at first, positive affirmations really do work.

Take out all the negative words, in your sentences, and rephrase them.  Use words such as I CAN, I WILL , I WANT, instead of anything sounding like you’re in doubt.  GET RID OF DOUBT!

Everyone is entitled to everything they want.   It’s just all about you controlling your universe surrounding you.

So many people might criticize this article, my thoughts.  But I challenge you to take a small test with this in a day, just so you can see the effect of it when you’re aware!

Once you’re aware of what’s going on around you and understanding what’s going on , then you can get a grasp of things and give an answer to each situation.  That’s why at the end of the day, everyone should recap throughout their day, see what happened , and be grateful for all the great things that happened to you within that day.

I do it daily, following some instructions from the “The Magic” I just finished reading.

Every night, before going to sleep, I think of all the great things that happened to me during my day, and give a big thank you to all.  Its crazy, since I’ve been doing this, there isn’t a day that went by, that I didn’t at least have one good thing happen to me.

Sure , we are humans, we’ll have our bad days.  There’s nothing we can do to change that, unless we are fully rewired.   Hey I’m not perfect, but I’m going to be perfect in my world when I’m complete with this.

Align Yourself with Success

We all have goals. The difference between those who succeed and those who fail are those who succeed are willing to try. If you are afraid of failure, see how you can turn that around.IMG_8557

Maybe failure is a way of learning, but never trying will not equate success.  I know my own failure is currently leading me to my success.

Align yourself with success by taking on new things. Network in different places, join seminars, take classes to boost your skill set and your confidence. Try something new you have never done before – even if it is public speaking.

I’ve been part of an Affiliate Network Community where I’ve been  coached on how to build my passion into my own business.   This helped me meet up with others such as myself, that want the same things I want.

I want to succeed in my own business.  I want to do what I love doing as a job, and a hobby.  And I can!   This website is proof that I can.

Set your own self up for success, put yourself in places where you are bound to succeed, and learn to recognize that even if you fail once or twice, the mere fact that you are trying aligns you with success.

Once you have succeed in smaller steps, you will feel more confident to take on more and more eventually reaching those coveted goals.

Books that changed my life

I’m going to list a few books I read, which literally changed my life so much.  My perspective has changed so much, that I’m no longer a skeptic.  I’ve used these books, and I’ve applied what they’ve taught me,  and this lead me to creating my blogging career.

Amazing how things fall into place.  How things get paved all the way to your success, WHEN YOU’RE AWARE.

Everything after reading these books, were about me taking action and taking control of my life.  I used to choose gaming before working, now I find working, before gaming.  I’m working on projects that I love working for.

I’m giving myself the biggest challenging career face-off I have ever had in my life, and I’m kicking ass at it.    I’m experiencing new things, I’m learning new things and I feel I’ve come so far, and have so much further to go.

Looking forward to my future, you should be looking forward to yours.

You have nothing to lose, but so much to gain. I never read books folks.  I hated reading, but when it comes to self help, that’s a different story.  Knowing that I’m just going to be a better person, and a more successful person in life, my career overall, is good enough for me to chase that dream and those goals I have.

I challenge you to follow suite. I promise it will impact your life.

 

If you read any of these books, please feel free to share your experiences when applying some of these affirmations in your life. It will be interesting to see how many of “US” are basically chasing the same dream, and are looking at life through the same perspective, going through life, as I am going through.

I’ve met so many people online , just like me, people that wanted to break from their 9-5 and get a job they always wanted. Whatever be it, I met these people , and it makes me feel good about how this whole thing is opening up things for me. You could do the same. Take action.
