I genuinely want all my business-minded friends and followers to see and experience this.
I remember it like it was yesterday when I first got excited about becoming an internet entrepreneur…
The idea of being an “entrepreneur”, the financial freedom to do what you want, when you want, the laptop lifestyle I was seeing from others, the income potential was fascinating to me.
I was 28 years old with not a lot of money, no experience, no knowledge, no contacts, and no mentors…
But you know how sometimes when you have a burning desire to do something, you always seem to find a way?
Well, that was me back then. I always liked to make websites, photos and all stuff connected with building a brand. Even my real job is connected with building a bran so i decided if i can do this job for someone, i can do it for myself too.
I found some affiliate marketing company and joined.
Being very new and naive, over the next couple of months I ended up investing a lot of cash into marketing, traffic, promoting this one company, buying the “here’s a #1 secret to success” type products from different ”gurus” …
I worked hard and gave it all. This was my ticket to success (I thought).
After all that hard work and investments when I looked at my sales reports – I had 0 sales. It felt like shi**.
My heart sank…
I got disappointed and frustrated…
I questioned myself a lot…
I gave up on my dream a lot of times, but then i always remembered this photo:
And you know what? I always came back with new force. Maybe I was so close from achieving true success?? Small quiet voice deep inside of me kept telling me that I can make it somehow.
If somebody else could do it, I could surely find a way, too! I’m not stupid, i have an idea about thing or two, I’m able to restore Ford Mustang Mach1 from 1969 to brand new condition so why i can’t earn doing online marketing?
I decided to stay and give it one more shot.
Call it luck or whatever, (I call it a blessing) – I found somebody who was doing what I wanted to do and I listened to his teaching as if my life depended on it (which it kind of did.. ).
I remember staying up all through the night on multiple occasions learning, building, applying, copying those methods…
Hours didn’t matter, I was seeing those diamonds behind a thin wall.
And then I remember, having my first ever breakthrough – my first sale!
My friend, if you’re trying to build your dream right now and you’re anything like I was, my message for you is simple – please do not quit, do it. (and remember picture below i have it in my mind always)
I’m so glad I didn’t throw in the towel when all logic and common sense screamed: “give up!”
Sometimes one idea is all you need to change everything.
My one idea was simple – do the polar opposite of what everybody else in your marketplace is doing. Take charge and build YOU, build your brand. Do so by doing certain things in a certain way.
That one idea and advice changed my life forever.
Look, I want to encourage you.
Keep on keeping on.
Today I teach my partners in business and anybody who’s willing to listen – DON’T DO WHAT EVERYBODY IN YOUR SPACE IS DOING!
Be DIFFERENT, Be EXTRAORDINARY (ps i love this word)
After 6 years in the industry, I decided to plant my flag and dedicate the rest of my career to helping people create a real and lasting breakthrough in their business and life through the project I joined and promoting it ‘The FourPercent Challenge’.
I genuinely want to be remembered for the work that I did in ‘The Challenge’ and the millions of people’s lives that were impacted as result of taking ‘The Challenge’.
If you’re reading this, I may or may not personally know you..
But if you’re reading this and you’re anything like I was in the beginning – I sincerely invite you to check out The FourPercent Challenge.
I don’t want to sell you on it or whatever. I’m just saying – if you’re struggling and want somebody to take you by the hand and show you what to do, how to do it, when, and why…
Without confusion, frustration, overwhelm…
If I can help you in any way – this is it.
Hope this (quite long) story inspires you to move forward and perhaps give it one more shot.
I’m telling you – the only way to fail in anything is to give up.
Don’t give up.
You got this. You can do it.
P.S. Staying allowed me to reach 75th place in sales contest. I’m not quitting. Looking forward for top 20 as then I will have opportunity to join yacht trip with top 20 entrepreneurs. My current goal!
