Encore Career Entrepreneur, Just Doing It

Hey there all my peeps! Have been struggling a bit, but am determined to reach out to you all. I’m keeping in mind my three most important take away lessons from the Jamaica Diamond Mastermind: Just do it! Just do it now! Find a mentor and do what they tell you! So, I’m taking some imperfect action tonight, because (as my mentor has told me and yes, I have one too) imperfect action is better than no action at all. If I waited until I felt perfectly able to write again, it might be a bit longer before you all heard […]

DON’T OPEN THIS BLOG POST UNLESS YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE BEST BUSINESS SYSTEM EVER TO LEVERAGE FOR BUILDING YOUR OWN LIFESTYLE FREEDOM You’ve been hearing from me about the amazing business system that I’ve been leveraging for the past few months. Well, at least some of you have! Those of you who have been reading my blog posts, opening my emails. You might have seen my YouTube videos of my first “big commission” month, $1694+ so far this month. The thing is, really, if I can do it, anyone can. First off, I started almost 9 months ago from […]

Entrepreneurs, 5 Ways To Increase Your Email Conversions

Hey there, Today I want to encourage my entrepreneur readers who are doing or considering email marketing with a few suggestions to help you increase your email conversions. One of the most important concepts I learned in Montego Bay is to always include a “CTA”, a Call To Action. In effect, we ask people who are interested in learning more to “raise their hand” and let us know that they are and why they think they will be a good fit with us. These individuals are our most engaged audience. They are letting us know that they are interested. Second, […]

Entrepreneurs, Have Fun, Help Others, And Create Wealth

Hey there, Just sharing some joy now! Got the phone call I’ve been waiting for this morning from Nate Rio in Malaysia, congratulating me on my first “big” commission. I knew that this business system was the real deal, not a get rich quick scheme, but a solid business system to be leveraged. So, I got to work with enthusiasm and persistence and in the past few months started seeing some real results, the kind where you get emails telling you that commissions have been paid into your eWallet. Even so, we all enjoy proof, don’t we? Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cm6-KaCMI8M   […]

For Entrepreneurs, Getting Results Is Fun

So today I’m writing because I have some exciting news. Getting results is fun! It is fun to receive an email notification that you have received funds paid into your account. Hard to beat the feeling of doing something that you love and that is fun to do and then also having the added positive reinforcement of having fun getting results! For me, right now, it is a little tiny baby step compared to what is ahead for me, but it is a step in the right direction and it feels just great! Check out this little video of “social […]

The Wee Hours, Again, “Entrepreneuring”

So, here I am again in the wee hours of the morning, your “Encore Career Entrepreneur”~ wannabe blogger ~thinking about what it is that keeps me going and going (kind of like the EverReady bunny) until these kinds of hours so often. It is a part of the laptop lifestyle that I cherish, this being able to keep going “when the Spirit moves me” doing something that I love, knowing that it is okay to be working when most of my little corner of the world is asleep. It is wonderful to know that if I’m feeling inspired, it is […]

Seek First To Understand, Accept – Then Reinvent

Seek First To Understand, Accept – Then Reinvent Listen (Listening is SO important) Accept what is! (Okay, you don’t have to love it, but it really does help if you accept what is actually happening!) Don’t take things personally! (Most of the time, it really is NOT personal at all and taking it personally keeps us locked into a negative feedback loop that helps no one, especially us.) It is really up to us to figure out who we are at our core and accept that, and then figure out how to get that message out there to the people who […]

Ten Rules For Success From A Superstar

So, I was listening to a Gary Vee YouTube talk. I enjoy him. He’s obviously VERY smart and kind of a wise guy too, and he’s funny. His language is a little over the top for me, so I’ll try to distill this without all the “F” words he uses when he talks and get the meat of the ideas for you. Gary Vaynerchuk’s 10 rules for success: Bet on your strengths and don’t bother at all about what you are not good at. Focus on what you are good at and put all of your time, effort, energy, and […]
