I recently returned from a whirlwind, fast-paced trip to sunny San Francisco, where I went with my husband to attend a work conference he was speaking at. It was a fun switch for me as he’s usually attending mine!
We had just 1 day to walk around the famous Fisherman’s Wharf, but it was so much fun! There were all kinds of neat shops – antique stores, crab shacks, sweet shops – even a Ripley’s Believe it Or Not store!Just before we hopped on the cable car to return to our hotel, we visited the pub where they invented Irish Coffee. All I can tell you is if there was coffee in my drink, I couldn’t tell! I couldn’t feel my forehead by the second round – so I decided to rename the drink as the San Francisco Botox after that!I went on this trip both to support my husband and to relax and enjoy some time off. I ended up getting some great ideas for my book and having some great conversations with people I met that once again solidified my purpose for helping people to see a different way of earning revenue through things like informational products and Internet Marketing.
For example, I met 3 incredible people at one of the get-togethers for my husband’s conference from 3 very different backgrounds – but they all wanted the exact same thing: Freedom.
All this was brought about through no intention of my own – it was just one of those things where you’re making conversation, people ask you what you do, and one thing led to another…
The first person I talked to was an older (retired) woman, who practically knocked her husband down to get over to me when she heard me answer the question, “What do you do?”
I had a blast talking to Gerry! She and her husband had worked hard all their lives, and were now living comfortably. Their kids are all grown up and taken care of, and now her goal is to be a motivational speaker!
She was looking at doing business in 2 areas that are great loves in her life – one was travel and the other was animals. She’s full of education and amazing stories in both areas, and really wants to host workshops to either get people excited about travel by introducing them to new things in the world, or to get people motivated to help animals in areas like shutting down puppy mills or giving assistance to wildlife sanctuaries around the world.
She was full of amazing stories, and she was really telling me how this is her time in life now (she called it the 2/3rds part of her life) where she can start doing the things she really loves to do and make a difference in the world. She’s taken care of her kids and her family, and now it’s her time.
It was such a treat to get to hear some of her stories and discuss with her how some of the things I do with internet marketing strategy could fit in with some of the things she wants to do as a motivational speaker.
Then I was introduced to a middle-aged Asian man named George, and his son Stephan who was in his early twenties.
George is a businessman who is very good at what he does. He makes a great living for himself but he was sharing with me how he’s really getting tired of the rat race. He wants to create some kind of business that he can do together with his wife that will allow them to travel more and have more freedom.
He really felt and was saying over and over again how Internet business is the kind of opportunity that is so big and allows you to really go anywhere you want, which was of course very appealing to him! He was looking for a way to basically make the same kind of money he’s making now (if not more), and have a better lifestyle – the opportunity to slow down and enjoy life.
His son, Stephan, was also really interested in learning more about Internet Marketing strategy and the opportunities that are there. He grew up reading books about twenty-thirty year olds who have become millionaires through the Internet, and he wants to be one of them!
He was just so full of vigour and dreams and high energy – and he recently was married and really had an eye to provide well for his wife and family.
Both George and Stephan had paid a lot of money for courses on how to do these things, but really only gotten their answers in pieces. In a way it was just a huge encouragement to them to talk to someone like me that has been there and literally seen it happen – I know a lot of people that have done this – it’s not just a pipe dream!
It was so cool to have this experience of meeting these 3 very different people – and completely unexpected! This all took place at my husband’s insurance conference – I wasn’t there to sell my program!
Really it’s amazing to me – it seems like no matter where I go, whether it’s standing in line at the grocery store or heading to San Francisco with my husband, I meet people that have these new hopes and new dreams, and they see the Internet as the solution.
Meeting these 3 in particular reminded me once again about all the different reasons people want to do create their own destinies in this way. These were 3 very different people with very different ages, nationalities, and reasons for wanting to change their lives…really they just needed some guidance to getting the kind of freedom they wanted!
In the end it was one of the greatest things I took away from the trip. Talking to people like this – listening to their hopes and dreams – it’s like the energy of the whole room shifts.
This is what I strive to provide for people in my Millionaires in Training Program – it’s truly something that gives me as much joy as the people that are in it get out of it! Having that kind of support and knowing through it that this REALLY is possible – that you really can get the kind of freedom in your life and career you want – it’s indescribable.
I consider it an honor to be able to provide that for people – and would be honoured to do the same for you as well. If you’re ready to step up to your dreams, visit here for more information on getting some powerful support to move forward with them to your freedom.
