It was a few weeks ago when I just SNAPPED!
Yes, you read that right. I snapped like a twig.
I reached my max capacity for dealing with bullsh** on every level you can think of especially when it comes to my business.
If you read my recent email, you'd know that I'm totally done having employees. I'm done with the soul-sucking overhead and responsibilities of having a "traditional" business.
In the very beginning of my teaching career, I had a handful of students (who are still with me, by the way) who anticipated "great" things for me. Apparently many of them had this idea in their heads that I was going to become the next Robert Kiyosaki. You know, the Rich Dad, Poor Dad guy?
And I made it very clear from the beginning. I don't want to stand next to "them" (the gurus) and become one of "them."
What did that mean?
Most of those gurus are full of sh**. They don't practice what they preach and they certainly don't do what they tell other people to do. And I absolutely refuse to even stand in the same category as they do simply because people will automatically assume that I'm on the same snake-oil-salesman-level that they are.
But mostly it's because I simply didn't have time to be the full-fledged "guru" that those other guys are. I actually go out, do real estate, have other businesses (for Aggressive Income), and only have a tiny bit of time for the "guru" thing.
Furthermore, even though I've been offered book deals by major New York publishers and have already been afforded the opportunity to become "one of them," I've turned down these publishers time and time again simply because I don't want to become the female poster child of financial freedom. Instead, I'd rather focus on teaching the few of you (who are serious about this) what I know, let you become successful, and we both then move on our merry little ways.
But over the past couple of years, my life and teachings have become contradictory. Since I started teaching my students Aggressive Income Strategies around this time way back in 2012, I've been showing my students how to not have overhead and not have employees and not have the stress of a regular business while enjoying the benefits of stuffing $20,000 or more per month in pure profits right into your pocket.
Yet I have the stress and obligations of overhead.
In the beginning, it was enjoyable. I had a mission. I needed to train people to become financially proficient and self-sufficient so the minor frustrations here and there of having a business didn't bother me. I was built to do it, having so many businesses for so many years. People management comes easy to me. And the minor frustrations I can bulldoze over, for many people, would be viewed (and felt) as insurmountable obstacles that would give them an instant one-way ticket into the loony bin.
But then something happened a little more than a year ago...
I had a powerful "shift."
At first I thought it was a "mid-life" crisis. Just a bit early. I figured since I had a hard life and always figured things out much earlier than most people, maybe I was going through the mid-life crisis thing earlier than most people do. This would explain the BMW thing and me carving up my body with a mural of tattoos on my back. (Yes, my entire back is all tattooed up.)
Then recently I figured it out. I figured out what was happening when I watched a video called The Shift by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. (You can watch the video on YouTube.com by searching for it...and have at least 2 hours available to watch it front to back without distractions. Highly recommended video! CLICK HERE to watch it on YouTube now. It's really life-changing.
I realized that I was going through The Shift and that it was time I did something about it.
Each one of us only has a certain number of days on this planet. And life is too short doing stuff you can't stand.
That applies to you, too!
And me, too!
It applies to everyone.
Now, many of you know that I've been "fake" retiring since...I don't know how many times. It's been A LOT of times. It wasn't really a false alarm but rather me mentally and emotionally preparing myself for the "real deal" that I knew was eminent in my future. (I just didn't know when it would happen, exactly.) Just when I was ready to step out of the spotlight, I'd freak out. I didn't want to let go of my students, my staff, my office, and what had become my "life."
Then the situation with my right hand assistant Lynette happened a couple of weeks ago (when she told me that she refused to "touch" my book The Lost Secret because it talked about "energy" and "vibrations," something she doesn't believe in as a Christian) that made me realize that this whole situation has become like an old snake skin that I should have shed back in September 2019 during the Holly embezzlement debacle...but that I've been too stubborn to want to let go.
Now it's time to let go.
I'd like to clarify what I'm talking about in this quick video I shot the other day. CLICK HERE to watch it right now.
When there is too much on your plate, you have to eliminate the sh** that is wasting your time so that you can focus on the sh** that is worth it to you. It's called the 80/20 Principle. This is a true concept outlining that 20% of your "work" yields 80% of your results.
Everything else you have to ditch before it eats you alive.
And that's what I'm doing.
Life's too short to waste it on nonsense.
I have an important training tomorrow that talks about exactly what I'm doing and how you can hop on board...if you'd like. CLICK HERE to enroll in the training ASAP.
See you at the top!
