For most people, getting started isn’t the problem. As humans, we’re attracted to things that:

  • Sparkle
  • Promise happiness
  • Make us feel good
  • Provide a level of competition – we think may win
  • Look like they’ll help us make money

And upon first introduction we’re excited, committed and ready to go.

Until the next sparkly, happy, feel good, make money thing comes our way.

We dare not pass up on an opportunity, right?

And yet, for every opportunity we chase, we don’t stick around long enough for it to work!

Seriously.

I’ve been owner of the same business since 2008. Plenty of time to chase after a different ‘sparkly’ thing. Plenty of time to ‘try something different’. Yet, I stuck to the building of my business. It’s still going strong. Oh, the offerings have changed a bit and that’s in response to the client requests. And, team members have come and gone because they found new opportunities or they weren’t a good fit for the business.

I’m still here.

I didn’t start the business thinking I would quit if it didn’t make money in the first 3 months.

I didn’t start the business thinking I would quit in 6 months.

I didn’t start the business thinking I would quit.

I started the business because I knew the clients needed the services I offered.

I started the business because we needed more money.

I started the business with a commitment to myself, my husband and my circle of friends: I would stick with a plan and work the plan until the plan needed to be changed. Then I would change the plan and stick with it until it needed to change again.

I committed to building a business – not starting a hobby that might make me a few dollars.

I’m in it for the long haul. I’m in it to the finish line.

Those that don’t make it in business? They don’t understand that being a business builder means commitment to the business until the finish line.

What’s the Finish Line?

Achieving your goal.

What business am I in?

The internet marketing business.

I’ve been offering it since 2008. I’ve been teaching it to professional teams and individual business owners since 2009.

Interested in internet marketing? Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone teach you the ropes while you make money?

That’s what I’m offering – not in place of my current business, but in addition to it.

Want to join me?

This ‘business in a box’ set up is the perfect way for you to get started. I’ll be with you – so don’t worry about needing to have anything more than

  • Desire.
  • Commitment.
  • Willingness to Learn.

Ready? Let’s go!

  1. Charlene – I agree with you 100%. People love to hop from one thing to the next. I have to admit that while i’m sitll in the early stages of my business – it’s great to connect with and hear from people who have worked hard for years and stuck it out! Keeps me motivated! Thanks for sharing!
