So, You’re Afraid…WHY?
I was taking a nap when I woke up with this idea so I ran straight to my computer to share this with you. I hope this will help you get rid of being afraid
So, You’re Afraid…WHY?
Being afraid is ok but staying there is not. The only way I believe to get over being afriad is to just do it. Don’t let being afraid stop you from living the life you desire.
Always do what your afraid to do. E. Lockhart

So, You’re Afraid…WHY?
I don’t know about you but I have always desired to work for myself. I had my first taste of self employment when my mother started her daycare. It allowed me to work side by side with my best friend.
However, at some point I did what regualr people do and got a job working a 9-5 but soon discovered I disliked well let’s be honest I HATED working for someone else. I could never get use to someone telling me When, Where and How to live my life.
But what I did discover was my love for travel. Travel became my life and passion starting at the ripe old age of eight. My very first trip was spent with my best friend…yep my mom when she took me to Disney World. We rode1st class on Eastern Airlines. (Yes, I’m dating myself) however I still remember this trip like it was yesterday.
Side Note: It was also the first time I had duck. (Didn’t like it to greasy, lol)
Fast forward a whole lot of years….college years that is and I must say I think I went to two pretty good schools. Wentworth Institute of Technology for Computer Engineering & Newbury College for Media Technology but never received a degree in either.
Can you guess what I wound up doing…yep getting a job but the desire to work for myself always prevailed so I always dibbled and dabbled in something with the hopes I would make it big. Well I haven’t made it big yet but that hasn’t stopped me from trying.
I have learned some necessary skills along the way that have help shaped me into the person you see before you today. I’ve read books, changed my circle of influence, gained some great skill sets that I have been able to share with the world. I got over my fear of my voice and started doing video. I believe today I have over 100 videos on my YouTube channel. SUBSCRIBE HERE
Today I go harder because I have two extra set of eyes looking at me everyday. I don’t want him to have to go through some of the same struggles I have. I want him to have a good life and not have to worry about him doing something he hates just for the money. I want his passion to fuel him. I DON’T WANT HIM TO BE AFRAID!
The one thing that always baffles me are those who say they need extra money but won’t even look at what your offering or tell you it’s a scam.
Which leads me to this question: What are you so afraid of? People will make every excuse, I can’t sell, I’m not a sales person, I can’t afford it but we will go and give our money to movie stars, basketball players, fashion designers and others and never get a return on our investment.
These people have made it WHY because of US, the ones buying their products. We will tell others about a good restaurant, movie or pair of sneakers but we won’t tell others about a way to make money and get a piece of the pie back in our pockets……..can you say CONFUSED!!!!
Listen, I understand that entrepreneurship is not for everyone and there are those who love their jobs and for those who fall into that category I’m truly happy for you. But for those who may hate their jobs, need more money or just want a better way out how about forgoing those Kevin Durant’s @ $115 or more and invest in YOU INC.
I will be the first to say it’s not easy but damm it, it sure is worth it. I wouldn’t change what I do for the world. There are a lot of puzzle pieces in the world of entrepreneurship but nothings better than seeing a smile on my child’s face because I now have the time and money to do the things we enjoy. Like taking him to the theater, cruise vacations, day trips to New York, being able to go to his school programsl during the day.
So, I challenge all those reading this that may have been on the fence about investing in themselves to give it a try and commit for 90 days. Don’t just join and do nothing and say it doesn’t work but truly commit yourself and see your world change right in front of your own eyes. I would even go as far to say don’t even look at the money so much as your willingness to DO IT.
You truly can make money on the internet however as a good friend and mentor reminds me that this is a game of chess not checkers. (Mr. Brian C. Jones)
To your success & Wishing you Peace, Blessings and Prosperity
