Yes, you read that right. There are already enough people out there telling you they’ll help you make a million dollars in three months or that they’ve found the secret “hack” to social media that will get you hundreds of thousands of followers the easy way. I’m sure you’ve heard those claims before, and have maybe even handed them your email or money in hopes that they could change your situation.
But you guessed it… they were lying.
Even the best of them had to start from the bottom, working hard on catching the attention of their followers through video, blog posts, podcasts and more, to even dare scratch the surface of what we know of as “success”. None of the best YouTubers reached the top 10 overnight with one video, nor did any of the Instagram celebrities we follow on our feed. All of them had to work hard on what they did, consistently pushing themselves further up the ladder until they got what they wanted.
That is what I want to help you with. Not “hacking the system”, because that’s for chumps. I want to show you how to make your own luck. You’re not going to regret having come onto this website; let’s just say I have a feeling that you’re even going to walk away a better person.
Here’s an exercise: I want you to project yourself in time – three years ahead in fact. Think about where you are today, and then think about what you would change in the following 1095 days.
you be a happier person or are you already content with everything? Are you
making more income after that period, or is everything going well currently? What
about your enterprises? Has there ever been a business idea you once had in
mind and never executed? Would you want it up and running by the time these next
three years have passed? What about a famous travel destination you’ve always
wished you could visit?
ask you these questions because it was practically three years ago in June when
I decided to reinvent myself.
sat, unemployed and unhappy, at home with just my favorite books and TV series
to pass the time. At the age of 25, I was studying something I didn’t enjoy,
and I felt the growing pressure of my most potentially productive years passing
me by with little more than a whimper. Life didn’t look promising at all.
it wasn’t until my last source of income disappeared – the money I made working
with my dad every now and then – that I truly saw myself standing on the edge
of the abyss. I was suddenly not only unemployed and unhappy, but also on the
verge of running out of what little money I had. I even depended on my partner
at the time to ensure I could eat a decent lunch!
a deep breath and giving a long look at my life while I attempted to pick up
the pieces, I recalled that I could still teach English to Spanish-speaking
students the traditional way. Sure, it did
go okay for a time, but I realized that it was neither stable nor fulfilling
work, and it wouldn’t put me fully back on my feet. I needed to start making
approached a friend one day when things were looking ugly and I barely had
enough money to get through the week – she also taught English to Spanish
students – and suggested that we start an English-teaching business together. Maybe even an institute, I suggested.
I’ll never forget what she
revealed to me next.
Freelancing and the First Step into Online Moneymaking
“I don’t really have time for that,” my friend said, and my smile faded. But she wasn’t done yet: “Have you ever heard of freelancing? Hey, maybe I’ll teach you and you can improve your situation.”
And so we began, for the next six or seven days; it didn’t look easy, but it was certainly straightforward enough in the end. I decided to tap in to a talent I hadn’t used for years, despite my voracious hunger for reading: my love for writing.
“Anthony M.,” my freelance profile read, “Experienced Writer and English-Spanish Translator.” It was true,
though it hid my uncertainty and fears quite well. I couldn’t believe that I
was actually trying to make money from home, especially in such a way. The idea
that I could make more money on my computer than on somebody else’s at an
office seemed quite absurd, and I began to send proposals for jobs without
believing it would go anywhere.
“These big shots will never hire somebody like me,” I thought. “Some guy without any work history, who doesn’t even have a professional profile picture like the rest of them.”
It took me a week to land my first job.
“Write a children’s book on a popular video game,” the young man – a guy about my age, who was making thousands of dollars on eBook sales – said. “But try to deliver it in seven days, or I’ll have to reconsider.”
happened next? Let’s just say I did what he asked, and I ended up becoming the
best writer he ever had. We wrote twenty-two books together, and both his
reviews and sales soared after we began our business relationship.
was just the beginning for me, however. I was about to carve out a career in
freelance writing that would take me to new heights.
Enough about me for now: are you done with what I asked you to do, projecting yourself? Have you seen anything in my story that you feel identified with right now? My story is quite a common one when it comes to young men and women – we’re built to believe that life is about graduating at a young age; finding a job at some office and working there for eight to ten hours a day, seven days a week; finding a partner and starting a family while traveling once a year, if at all… We simply don’t get much of a choice in what decisions we make until we’re much older.
like us, however, don’t follow this system. We’re the rebels.
you looked into the future did you imagine yourself making a fortune? Did you
see yourself with thousands of followers, all of them in love with your content
and sharing your videos and posts all over the net? Did you travel to a time
when you have a fast car, a lovely spouse and a beautiful, furry dog in your
huge back yard? Do you have the desire of visiting ten or twenty countries per
you believe me when I say that there’s nothing stopping you from getting any of
that? Since starting my freelancing career, I have joined webinars, learned
from the best publishers, studied marketing courses and taken part in tutorials.
I have ghostwritten over fifty books, written for several blogs, managed social
media accounts and amazed even experienced writers with my work. I have read
hundreds of resources on freelancing and boosted several company’s sales, and I
must tell you right now – it was all because I decided to reinvent myself and
start over, away from traditional work.
