Well, let me tell you a little story first..
My youngest son John, who is now 16 years old, has his own online business, Marketing Mastery Elite, actually he owns an LLC, limited liability company and him and his 16 year old business partner figured this out on their own. I never helped them one bit form the LLC.
When John was around 9 or 10 he started asking me questions about my marketing activities online. He would some time watch over my shoulder from the background, which I did not know he was doing..
Well one day, he was on the computer and I asked him what he was doing because I seen he was logged into some of the same marketing sites I use to drive traffic with, and he told me he was driving traffic to a gaming site he created..I was like..WHAT..huh??
You created your own site, how in the heck did you do that?
He said I will show you, then he proceeded to show me how..Because at the time, I didn’t even know how to create my own sites, and I had been marketing online a little over 4 years at this point..
I was completely blown away, and very proud of him of course. The other thing I asked was, did you log into my traffic generating accounts, I was about to tell him to not do that because he could mess something for me, when he said..No, I created my own accounts..WOW, I never showed you how to do this, how did you figure out how to use them?? He said, I just learned how..I learned a little from you, but mostly I just figured it out on my own..Its not hard he said.
I walked away in amazement, because he was only 9 or 10 at the time. A few days later, I was invited to the school for one of the projects the class was working on, it was about your heritage, and family tree. So when it came time for John to do his show and tell, I was expecting, like a hold up items and share some stories about them..But to my amazement and disbelief it was a power point presentation, complete with slides, the whole shaBANG!
I still do not know how to do one!!
Now fast forward roughly 6 years, and John like I said now 16 years old, has a successful online business, and owns a LLC, Did I help him set this all up?
NO..I am to busy with my own online businesses. I gave them some advice here and there, and wrote a couple pieces of content for them. But other then that they set everything up, created it all, and created a membership database, and wrote all the coding. Some of the stuff they have done, I still can not do, because me and the tech side of this online stuff are not friends..I love writing content, copy-writing, driving traffic, and working on the conversion end.
So whats the point of my story?
YES…Anyone can be successful online, if my son could do it at 9 or 10 years old..Remember what I said he told me..I just learned it and it wasn’t hard..Those that want to be successful will learn it..There is no luck involved, you will not have to know how to do everything, there are plenty of programs and tools, that can do what you can not and fill in the gaps. But the basics everyone needs to learn how to do, anyone can and have success.
You just have to decide like my son did, and follow through with your plan, and pursue your goals and dreams. My son does what successful people do, they read success stories, watch and listen to motivating individuals to get his mind set right. When someone tells him he can not do something he makes sure to prove them wrong. He doesn’t let obstacles get in his way, thats how he created Marketing Mastery Elite..I really want you to understand that I have given complete strangers online more marketing help, then I have given to my son John, yes my son John is very intelligent, but it is his determination and focus to succeed at what ever he does that drives him to learn and do on his own. He has never wanted anyone to tell him, you are only successful because your Dad helped you. This is what I want you to take away from this blog post, is that ANYONE CAN HAVE SUCCESS ONLINE OR with anything they do, ALL they HAVE TO DO IS DECIDE that they will be successful and they will be, there is no LUCK involved!
