This time of year brings up a lot of emotions for me as I remember experiencing one of the hardest moments in my life.
About 7 years ago at this time of year, I was getting ready to throw in the towel.
After many years of exhausting my energy, trying everything I could think of to build my business, and just spinning my wheels, I had had enough.
My rock bottom was when, after promising my kids I would take them to Disney World for Thanksgiving when I hit a goal I had set for myself in my business, I had to go back on my word to them.
After running myself ragged to achieve my goal on time (and I had been shooting for this goal for 5 years leading up to this, too), I didn’t hit the goal.
Meanwhile, my kids had been SO excited about the trip that they made a calendar and were crossing of the days counting down to Thanksgiving when we were supposed to be leaving on our trip.
So having to have the conversation with them to tell them that we weren’t going was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Not only were they so disappointed, but I was left feeling inadequate, like a total loser. I felt like I was failing in my ability to be a positive role model for my kids, to lead by example… because, no matter how hard I tried (for over 5 years!), I couldn’t succeed in my business.
And then one day everything shifted for me.
In Entered My introduction to Attraction Marketing.
I met someone who was having an unspeakable amount of success, and she wasn’t doing any of the things that I was doing (things that I despised doing). I was shown another way of marketing, another way of building my business.
And, unlike everything that I had been doing, it did NOT include making cold calls, plastering cars in parking lots with flyers (or any type of spam whatsoever), or pestering my friends and family for their support. It was a total breath of fresh air.
I started to learn a MUCH more effective way of marketing… a way that helped me build a brand and an audience of targeted people who were actually seeking out what I was offering.
And very quickly everything changed for me.
Not only did I start to achieve results… but I was hitting my goals BEFORE the date I set to hit them and I was surpassing the goals I was setting. I was also LOVING what I was doing… every bit of it… and that was certainly not the case when I was cold calling and spamming.
I hit the 6 figure mark in my business 10 months later, and I took my kids on that trip to Disney World… and we went big, it was a total first class experience at a beautiful resort… it was the best.
Here is the post on Facebook with a picture of the calendar… I cried again when I read it today.
Since then, I have never looked back.
I share all of this for a few reasons.
1. If you’re currently struggling to achieve the results you would like to achieve in your business, know that you’re not alone. There’s no reason to feel alone, and there are some amazing resources available to you to help you turn things around for yourself. One of the resources is my 5 Day Attraction Marketing Challenge that I’m sharing with you for f.ree beginning on Monday, November 27th. You can sign up to get access to it HERE (You won’t be able to sign up after Monday the 27th, so be sure to sign up right now if you’re interested).
2. Remember that this too shall pass. Everything in the world is constantly changing (the good and the bad) and so this could very well be your time to have that breakthrough you’ve been waiting for.
3. Moments of discomfort and ‘feeling like a failure’ are GIFTS – they’re opportunities for you to learn and to grow. Take these opportunities. Don’t just sit there feeling sorry for yourself when you can actually act on opportunity to turn things around.
I feel stronger and more alive because of the challenges I’ve been able to overcome… I wouldn’t trade any of them, because they have all caused an enormous amount of growth (and miracles) in my life.
And now, because of my pain, struggle and frustration, I’ve come to completely fall in love with Attraction Marketing. It’s what I teach now, because I’m so passionate about helping others to have that same breakthrough that I did.
So, let me help you…
For 5 days, you and I and a group of others get to go on this awesome journey together. This is one of those absolutely-nothing-to-lose-and-everything-to-gain opportunities. The worst that happens is that nothing changes (which is basically impossible unless you just flat out don’t even show up). The best that happens? Things change for the better… you learn a new way to do things, one that makes you feel like you are contributing to the world, not spamming it. You feel like you are living your purpose, and you start to see measurable RESULTS in your business. All good things. All things that you very much deserve.
Attraction Marketing Boot Camp
Here are the quick facts for the Attraction Marketing Challenge:
1. We start on Monday, November 27th.
2. It’s my gift to you (there’s no charge)
3. It’s all gonna be delivered to you via this Facebook group (you just need to request to join and show up each day for 5 days and do the work).
Now let’s talk about #3 for a second, so I can explain why this is so powerful.
Here’s why — Facebook challenges work wonders because you get to be TAUGHT exactly what to do in the COMPANY of lots of others who are in the same boat as you. You will be surrounded by love and comradery.
You also have 5 days worth of direct access to me, so you can get your questions answered immediately. And we can celebrate our victories together and get support in the areas that we need it, together.
Personally, I love teaching inside of a platform like this… I’ve had great results each time I’ve done it and my students have as well.
So, I’m officially inviting you to the attraction marketing 5 day challenge. I’m so excited to share this with you and I love all things about it. And of course, I would LOVE for you to sign up so that you can get to know me better and I can get to know you better too!
All you have to do is join the Facebook group here and introduce yourself once you get inside (if you want to, no pressure). And I’ll see you on November 27th.
Can’t wait! 🙂
Hope to see you inside…
