Where have I been…
and what have I been doing since my last post 8 months ago?
Well, there’s a short answer and a long answer but they’re both very much the same.
The Short Answer…
Life intervened and so I have been spending my time —
- Meandering through the world of Internet Marketing
- Dealing with day-to-day life activities
- And lastly, watching with awe at where my “Evolving Career” has been taking me
The Longer Answer…
It’s been an interesting, frustrating, eye-opening, and mostly non-revenue producing trip. I have come out the other side, not sure where that is… and not sure yet if it’s been worth it or not.
I am totally overwhelmed though by how fast the days, weeks, and months have flown by. I am still wishing people a Happy New Year and we’re already in April! I feel like I had more free time and got more done when I was working 50 hours a week as a program & project manager. Why is that???
One thing that’s different now is that I am much more relaxed, I get more sleep, I usually get more exercise (except on days like today when it’s been raining all day). I love learning new things and I have been learning so many new things that I feel like I’m stuck in shiny object land – they are all so interesting that I need to start choosing where I spend my time or I won’t ever get anything completed. Consequently – My current internal mantra is: I Am Successful Joyous Completion!
Where I’m Spending My Time
As a general update on where I’ve been spending my time, here are the groups that I am now a member of and am participating in their activities, meetings, and group sites. All of these groups provide training, experience, support, a group to participate in, mixed with a measure of personal responsibility because it’s still up to each person to actually do the work!
Partnership to Success (P2S) – This is a continuing membership for me as it is with P2S that I started this blog and jumped into Internet Marketing (IM) in the first place. John Thornhill and Randy Smith run a supportive successful group that is focused on learning Internet Marketing, product creation, and list building.
The contacts within the group are helpful and provide an incredible base of affiliates to promote each others’ products. They also have bi-weekly webinars showing what they and/or others in the group are doing to create and market products successfully. Randy, John, and the P2S FB group are an amazing resource for all kinds of IM and techie software questions as well as a built in group to help with creating and promoting all kinds of products.
NAMS Insiders Group – David Perdew and his daughter Jen Perdew Houlk run this group which again provides incredible, wide-ranging, training on everything from personal clarity to business essentials, internet marketing fundamentals, software, weekly interactive meetings, and a membership made up of people in a wide variety of niches.
This group is so fun, knowledgeable, and accessible that I look forward to each week’s meeting because of all of the valuable information it provides. Additionally, there are software products (eg video system, click tracker, website theme), so many courses I can’t begin to list them all, 30-day challenges around subjects like publishing, product creation, content creation, list building, plus the weekly mastermind meetings. This is all just a small part of what I’m getting from being a part of this group!
TrainYourBrainU – This is a group that was founded and run by Dana Wilde to give more opportunity for students and readers of her book Train Your Brain and associated teaching. Dana is a very enthusiastic, smart, and successful woman entrepreneur who started out sharing what she learned and developed as a successful MLM businesswoman.
That success and mentoring turned into a larger teaching organization where mostly women (some men too!) have joined her to learn and apply her many goal setting, personal success, and personal growth programs in their daily lives. Again, there are webinars and training programs as well as a highly participative group of members who support and encourage each other on a daily basis! Her site and membership group is TrainYourBrainU (TYBU).
I am very lucky to have found 3 groups to learn from and grow with and that are all different enough from each other to give me a wider view of life, internet marketing, and ways to create a successful life and new Evolving Career.
Be sure to check out the FREE PDF you can get via email at the top of the Home Page. It’s an informative book by my P2S coach, John Thornhill. You’ll learn a lot by reading it.
Stay tuned for my next post where I will tell you all
