Becoming the Best Version of Myself and Gifting Myself to the World
Description: No Promotions! Working together to lift each other and our young businesses up as a Mastermind team.
Starting an online business can have a steep learning curve. I already have one successful online business and am venturing out into blogging for additional income and I believe I/we can be more successful at that if we have a support group of like minded individuals.
No Self Promotion! There's enough of that online already.
Work together here. Create friendships if you like and in the future outside of this group you may have the opportunity to work together in a business relationship.
The internet is constantly changing. It can be overwhelming. As much as I use Google and read books and watch vids, there is nothing that takes the place of real interaction between people and I am a people person.
Promotions will be deleted and you will likely be banned from the group.
Let's get building our businesses!
The difference between Choice A & B.
Way back in the 1990's with the advent of eBay, I started buying items locally and reselling them on ebay. For whatever reason, selling new & especially used books became my focus.
Now I already had a full time business back then, so Choice A was I could eventually get home sometime that night, sit down in our comfortable sofa and watch TV all night.
Choice B was maybe I could use that time more wisely and sell things online for fun & money.
I chose B and I have been selling online ever since, first part time and now for the last 4 years that has been full time income.
In 2000, after selling lots of used Catholic books, I thought wouldn't it be nice to reprint some of the higher priced used, old books and make more money from multiple sales then just a random book here and there and so I published my first hardcover book. It was 900+ pages, B&W with photos and it cost me $2500 for 100 copies which I sold for $60 each retail. So $2500 turned into $6000 and I eventually did 4 printings. Thus spending $10,000 to turn that into $24,000. Do you think that beats sitting in front of the TV? ;-)
Today, I have 1000 published book titles and 277 ebooks all selling online 24/7. Yes even while I am sleeping, books are selling. Tough work, right? hahaha
I write this because people are often discouraged with minimal results and they don't see the long term picture. Also I would add by doing something that I loved, it DIDN'T feel like work at all, but more like play.
What could you be doing?
Live and Love with Passion!
With this blog, my goal is to share with you the many things I have learned over my life. Perhaps these lessons will resonate with you, perhaps you'll gain some insights or just be entertained.
I have always loved traveling and enjoying as many new experiences as I can while also seeking to improve the quality of my life.
I feel that I have been blessed in so many ways, including those times we might consider to be bad/negative times in our lives. For me I've learned the darkest hours often bear the greatest lessons to be learned to make me an even better, more loving person. Sometimes its taken me most of my life to figure things out, but I am grateful that I finally understand and can accept everything that has happened in my life.
Thanks for coming along!
