I began investing my time heavily in social media in December of last year, when it became clear that the economy was not doing good things for my current business. At first, I hoped that social media would save my business, and was approaching it from that perspective. However, without a clear understanding of how social media could help my business (there was certainly a learning curve) I did not efficiently apply the principles, and did not have enough time to make it work before the money ran out.
I used my last dollars to pay for a telesummit on social media, and it was the best investment I have ever made. I wasn’t able to listen to the courses live because my business was in the process of folding, and all my time was invested there, trying to do that the right way. However I had been wise enough to pay for the upgrade that included the recordings, and after I got over the trauma of losing a business I had given EVERYTHING to, I grabbed onto social media like a lifeline. I began listening to the training calls, and applying the skills I learned, with the intention of finding a job. We’d lost everything as a result of the failure of our business (my husband and I both ran the business, so we had no other income source), and in my mind a job was a necessity.
My job search strategy was to position myself as an expert on social media in my industry, direct sales, with the intention that companies would see this skill, which is relatively new to the industry, as a very desirable trait. There aren’t too many people in my industry at the corporate level using social media yet, who have the background of serving as CEO of a direct sales company. With this unique skillset, I thought I could better find a job.
What I didn’t anticipate is that people would start coming to me, asking me to help them with social media. I received speaking invitations, joint venture opportunities, and more, because I was uniquely positioned in my niche. I began to realize that this could actually be a real business opportunity, that could actually make money. Thus the strategy that I teach to others was born. When I talk about these techniques, you need to keep in mind that I am sharing with you what I have actually done with NO MORE MONEY in my pocket. Scared about the mortgage no more money.
If this resonates with you, then listen carefully. Because by following the exact same strategy that I teach, I AM making money. And I am making money doing EXACTLY what I am TEACHING YOU TO DO. I did not enter the social media arena with the intention of making money that way. I entered social media with the intention of positioning myself to find a job. Sometimes the universe has other ideas, however.
These skills can really help you make more money with your business. And I now have a passion for helping people learn how to do it, because it helped me out of a desperate situation. And believe me, I KNOW that I am not the only one in that kind of a situation these days. If you want to learn more about what I’m doing, please attend one of the events I’m speaking at, sign up for private coaching (this link has a special offer that I am extending to my blog readers), and join my Facebook group.
Those of you who know me personally know that I have a passion for helping others. My last company donated 100% of its corporate profits to charity. We gave away over $150,000 in the last 3 years. I would love to help you get yourself out of a challenging situation and make more money. It IS possible, and you can do it by creating value for others. It’s an incredible opportunity, and I look forward to walking this journey with you.
Here’s to your incredible success.
