I am currently writing my Never Give Up program that tells my story and how my disasters struck around 2008 and from then on how I have been able to go on and rebuild my life all over again and much of my success has been due to my path online.
It has been a therapeutic exercise going back through the memories of everything that occurred.
What has been so strange is realising that only 5 years ago I didn’t work online. I didn’t have an ecommerce business, in fact I didn’t have a website. And in addition I lost everything else that I had worked my whole life to earn.
I was telling a friend yesterday how I remember my 1st tentative moves on my path online. Alongside my gym business I decided to start up my life coaching practice. As fortune would have it, a member of my gym offered me an exchange, knowledge for knowledge. He wanted to build his body to the next level and knew that personal training from me would help. He just didn’t have the money. But what he did have was an expertise, and that was being able to build a website. So I agreed to train him in exchange for a website to promote my life coaching business. And that was it my first website.
As the months went past and my business grew, I started to receive emails from people around the world interested in coaching. I was getting about 5 clients a month and loved coaching and making the difference.
But things ramped up the minute I started to blog, and to me this was the catalyst behind all the good things that have happened to me, and my path online has been up and onwards all the way through. I didn’t start doing this properly until I had my eye operation and wasn’t physically able to be a gym instructor. Not only was coaching of interest to people, but also my thoughts and knowledge particularly in regard to both personal development and fitness. I couldn’t believe the numbers I was getting to my blog, the comments I was receiving and the people I was now communicating with.
I then took my business to another level. I knew I was reaching more and more people, and it became clear that I should be creating an internet business and this would be built around an ecommerce shop. Things haven’t looked back since. My path online was certainly financially benefited by becoming an ecommerce shop owner. I still have to pinch myself at times how well this has gone.
Yet now I want to go to another level. I have learnt so much of how to survive and recover from difficult times. I know I can help others through the knowledge I’ve acquired. Coaching people on a one-on-one bases is simply amazing, but know I want to reach and help more people, making something affordable and so I’m creating the Never Give Up program which will be in my first ever members area. I am so excited and know it will change many lives. I truly believe that. So my path online is taking another new direction and this one will reveal the true me, the guy that wants to make a difference!
I know I have the skills and knowledge and most important the experiences that will help other people to get results and I know I have the abilities to create an awesome program and community.
You will have to judge whether I am!
