What does it really take to become UNSTOPPABLE IN LIFE?
What does it really take to become UNSTOPPABLE IN LIFE?
THERE IS NOT A SINGLE DAY that goes by that someone doesn’t ask us how we can live the life we live.
My family has been traveling the world for nearly 5 years now without any traditional barriers, like being tied down by a traditional 9-5 job or having to live in one location. While we are not Rich (in the financial sense), we are able to live our passions of surfing, snowboarding, traveling and experiencing the world while running our mobile, online business.
We are not trust fund babies, nor did we win the lottery. We didn’t start our trip with a large nest egg like many have. We actually were quite the opposite on how we started our trip around the world…and this experience we call LIFE.
We lost everything we had. That’s how it started.
Please don’t feel sorry for us, or think we are looking for a pity party….
Quite the contrary.
Losing everything and starting over was the best thing that has ever happened to us, and I want to share with you on WHY it was the best thing, and HOW we made it happen and are still making it happen 5 years later.
Let’s talk about how we are doing it.
Most people look at our lifestyle and feel it is next to impossible to create. We are here to tell you that it’s much easier than you think when you figure a few, simple things out and get ultimately clear on what you want out of life.
First, we would like to give gratitude to some of our Business and Spiritual mentors that you may know or follow as well.
* Bob proctor & Tony Robbins have paved the way for us in mindset & leadership for 20+ years, and have helped us create a sense of UNSTOPPABLE belief that we didn’t know we had.
* Wayne Dyer & Deepak Chopra have opened our minds to our spiritual side and our sense of being. I had the opportunity to speak with both of them about our situation when we found out we were losing everything (but thats a different story, altogether)
* In the past decade, mavericks such as Tim Ferriss (4 Hour Work Week) & Chris Guillebeau (the $100 Start-up) have shown us what is possible in today’s economy and how to rise above government shutdowns, corporate controls and to start taking responsibility for our lives.
They call it the mindset of the “New Rich”.
Each of these “GREATS” have given us inspiration, guidance and the mindset needed to make things happen.
but when it came to doing it on our own……We were lost.
We needed more of a community connection and someone that we could reach out to with questions along our journey. It’s one thing to take off strong, but to stay strong…..
That’s a whole different set of skills and mindset.
Let’s talk about the crucial ‘HOW’ steps we took to establish a successful mindset and online business that works for us when we are traveling, experiencing life and spending time with our daughter who is now 6 and is our primary reason for being UNSTOPPABLE and not giving up.
Before we actually get into the HOW, let me share a bit more of our story so you can understand why we take a stand everyday and share our story of FREEDOM and LIFE.
I won’t share my whole story but I will share my “BIG WHY” with you.
I did everything I was “meant” to do in life growing up. I went to school, got good grades, played sports and even went on to get my MBA degree in college.
The corporate life was set for me….it was actually everything I had ever dreamed of.
I worked extremely hard to get a great job with benefits and landed a position right out of college with a Fortune 500 company. The money was amazing in my eye’s, but even when I started out in the “Real World” as a broke college kid and started making more money I had ever made…
The money alone was not enough to keep me happy.
As years went by, I started to feel really empty with my job and my contribution to the world.
Then one day changed my life forever.
I was in a meeting with this woman, who had just came off of maternity leave. She needed to leave early and take her new baby to the doctor, so she asked our boss if she could leave 15 minutes early to get to the appointment.
I will never forget this moment.
Our Boss told her “We are running a business, and you have responsibilities with this company”, if you leave early do not plan on returning”.
My heart sank…I realized that I was just a number in this huge company.
It was at that exact moment, I made a Vow to myself and my future Children….that I would never put them into daycare. At the time, I had no idea of how I was going to make it happen.
I just knew I would.
So I am going to share with you how I did it, so you don’t have to go through the same roadblocks that I did when I started 9 years ago as an entrepreneur with a vow and a dream.
**** 1st Thing is FEAR
If you are going from employee to entrepreneur, then you will have to deal with fear. I will be BLUNT with you…you are going to have to tackle it head on. I had to get it out of my head the concept of a “safe paycheck” illusion I created.
My Top Fears Were…
* Getting over the fear that if I had failed on my first attempt, then maybe friends and family might judge me and say, “I told you so”.
* What if I failed, then I would have no one else to blame but myself.
* I have never been an entrepreneur…can I do it? I had “no experience nor personal mentors” to show me the way.
These fears almost crippled me from taking the first step..
THE REALITY of everything was that if I didn’t at least attempt to go after my dreams….when was I ever going to do it.
EVERYTHING I WANTED was on the other side of fear.
**** 2nd – A MENTOR
This changed my life…I was trying to figure out everything by myself for so long. This was the really BIG difference from just having a book to read. While I was grateful for everything I learned in the books, I required more guidance.
For some kids in class, you could give them a textbook and they wouldn’t need a teacher at all. For myself and 90 % of the other people out there, a teacher in class was crucial to help guide you when you are stuck.
Once I got a mentor, I was able to totally transform my whole online business. After years of success by myself, I decided to reach back and mentor people myself.
I have my friend and amazing leader, Jeremy Gilsoul , who is totally transforming his life and others by giving the guidance I gave him.
I am willing to coach you if you are serious about change. My time is limited but I do make time for serious people who have big dreams & who take action!
**** 3rd – AN ONLINE BUSINESS MODEL
This personally took me a long time to figure out through trial and error. Everyone has different interests and needs in a business. I will share with you my personal wants in a business, then I will share “How I went about finding it.”
My Ideal lifestyle which I am LIVING NOW…was to be able to spend 6 months in Europe then the next 6 months in Bali if I chose to.
What I required while looking for a business..
1. Mobile business system that I could work anywhere in the world
2. Community based business so I could feel like I was part of something
and be connected to others around the world
3. Affordable, and solid infrastructure with support
4. Ability to earn at least 6 figures a year with room for growth
5. A system that had been proven over time
I can only share what has worked for me. That is what I speak on.
