Living With Deliberate Intention

In the last 3 months I’ve been to Ireland, Switzerland, France, California, Oregon, and Italy. My friend in Monaco said to me this week: “You can live and work from anywhere – how lucky you are!”

It’s not luck. My life is created this way by design. I have worked smart (not hard) to get to this place. Here are a few steps you can take to achieve the same and more.

I started to build my online business seriously only about 5 years ago. Before then I dibble-dabbled with it, learned, failed, failed some more but I never gave up. I started out mostly being down on myself and the internet world. I said things like: “I just don’t get it. I dislike technology. This is too much work. It takes money to make money. The internet freaks me out.”

Today I have over

27,000 YouTube subscribers, hundreds of videos, over a dozen online courses that are enjoyed by tens of thousands of students in 129 countries.

Here is how you can get started and at the end of this article I will share with you how you can

work with me as your coach.

Step 1: Let ‘Enough Be Enough’

I wasn’t always this flexible about where I could live and do what I do for a living today. Like most I was tied to a job and had mortgage responsibilities that made me feel trapped. There came a time, however, when my desire to be free to live anywhere became my driving force. Enough already!

Lesson: When the misery of being tied to a job/desk/location becomes too big, a new desire of wanting to be free is born. Allow and feel this misery and then let this ‘feeling trapped-ness’ guide you out of whatever miserable ditch you find yourself in.

Step 2: You Must Want It Badly

Answer the following questions. Meditate with these questions if you must. Really answer these questions from a soul-level, not an intellectual level.

  • questions, large sizeHow badly do you want to free yourself from being tied down to a job or location?
  • How badly do you want to create multiple, passive and generous streams of income?
  • How badly do you want to reach a global audience with your most important message?

There are few things more true than the saying: “Where there is a will there is a way.”

Lesson: Achieving this type of freedom requires the right mindset. Be willing to change your mindset about working from anywhere. It all starts first and foremost with your mindset.

Step 3: Elbow Grease

I put some elbow grease behind my desire to live a mobile lifestyle and learned ‘everything’ I could to build a mobile business. For years I carefully researched online business models to see and feel what would resonate with my personality the most. I spent hours each day learning about internet businesses. Everything from keyword optimization, online advertising, backlinking, website building, list building, product creation, content repurposing, trading time for dollar, affiliate marketing, you name it. I learned it.

Lesson: Be willing to learn new things such as how to build a website or learn how to delegate this task to a web developer. You must be willing to learn new skills to succeed working in an ever-changing digital world.

Step 4: Remain Authentic

The most important step above and beyond anything when it comes to business is to not fall for the trap to choose a niche and then fill the need. Every internet marketer I have ever studied teaches you this strategy and now that I’ve been working online for over 12 years, my greatest piece of advice is not to fall for this trap but instead find the pearl of wisdom within you that you are meant to share with the world.

In other words, when you find a niche and then create a product to fill that need, all you are doing is chasing after money. You may make a lot of money with this strategy but where is the real you in this venture?

Rumi once said: “Everyone is searching the world for treasure when the real treasure is you.”

With this in mind my urging to you is not to find a niche and then fill that need because this strategy does not even remotely touch the pearl of wisdom that sits deep within your soul and is longing to be sparkling in this world. Finding a niche and filling that need is a recipe for you to get exhausted down the road. Don’t do it.

Instead your job is to find that pearl within you that makes you run on Spirit’s energy rather than your hunger for money. Let your soul guide the way, and then boldly go and share that pearl with the world. When you have found that spark, you will never work another day in your life!

Words like ‘competition‘ will then cease to exist and you will find collaborators, joint venture partners and receive every other support you can possibly need to helping you spread that pearl’s shine with the rest of the world. That’s how unique and precious you are. Don’t settle for anything less but the real you.

Only once you have found that preciousness within you can you look at untapped niches and craft your message in a way to tap into your target audience – not before.

Oscar Wilde once said: “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.”

Lesson: Find your inner gem, your inner pearl that is waiting to glisten in today’s desperate world. Be authentic with your character and share your Self with a hungry world.

Step 5: Choose Your Vehicle

Armed with being fed up (step 1) of your current situation, along with the desire to want a change badly enough (step 2), and a heavy dose of elbow grease (step 3), you authentically spread your own inner wisdom with a hungry world (step 4), now you are ready to hop into a vehicle that will help you spread your message. There are countless vehicles to choose from. Here are just a few:

Become a certified Teleclass Leader

Become a certified Teleclass Leader

  • Teleseminars
  • Webinars
  • Videos
  • Online Courses
  • Membership Sites
  • Podcasts
  • Radio Publicity
  • Print (blog posts, books)

Today I am utilizing all of these vehicles but it didn’t start this way. My recommendation is not to overwhelm yourself by attempting to master all of these right out of the gate. Choose the vehicle that is the easiest for you to learn and master. Set your message-spreading up on auto-pilot using one of these vehicles. Then move on to the next.

I started by becoming a certified Teleclass leader because I was too scared to speak in public. Over time I was able to polish my voice and my online demeanor. This sets me up as a more confident speaker, podcast host, radio guest, public speaker and online instructor. Click here to become a Certified Teleclass Leader.

Step 6: Re-Purpose Your Content

Over time you learn how to re-purpose your content. Repurposing your content is quite simple. For example, you may be a great writer and love to write articles or blog posts. Don’t stop there. Take your article and now turn it into a teleseminar. Then take your teleseminar and turn it into a podcast. Then take your podcast and turn it into a video. From all your materials, create an online course and then write a book. Or do it in whatever sequence it makes sense to you. Perhaps you have already written an eBook or a print book. Now take your book material and turn it into online courses.

With each of these vehicles always remember that the end-goal is to create material that is ever-green that can be shared with a global audience. In other words, let the world enjoy your material in the format that works for them, while you are earning an income while sleeping.

Step 7: Patience, Consistency and Grace

And lastly, be patient with this process. Success doesn’t come over night.

I’ve started to be serious about building my online business only about 5 years ago. Before then I dibble-dabbled with it, learned, failed, cried and said: “screw it,” kept going and then failed some more. I was down on myself saying things like: “I just don’t get it. I dislike technology. This is too much work. It takes money to make money.”

In hindsight, I wish I had shown myself more grace. I’m glad that my desire to succeed was stronger than my fear of failure. I picked myself up when I failed and just kept going.

Today I have over 27K YouTube subscribers, hundreds of videos, over a dozen online courses that are enjoyed by tens of thousands of students in 129 countries. I’m thrilled that I persevered and know you can achieve the same and more.

One day I saw this picture online and it hit me. I wondered how many times in life I came this close to success. I made the decision to never give up on my own dreams again. Life has changed for the better since making that decision. This picture is not mine and I don’t know who it belongs to but I hope it will encourage you as much as it encouraged me.never give up

Step 8: Avoid Nay-Sayers

Often times the people we are closest to are also the ones that mean the best – to our detriment. When we tell them that we want to quit our jobs to become an entrepreneur while working from home, they tend to play “devil’s advocate.” They say things like: “You don’t have what it takes. Be careful. What if you fail. The internet is saturated, you won’t make it. With what money?”

This happened to me and it happens to just about anyone who makes a huge change in their life. The wise choice here is to be selective with whom you choose to share too many details with and instead surround yourself with those who won’t keep you small but instead cheer you on to get out of your own box.

I love being my students’ cheerleader and mentor. I believe in every single one of them and no matter their desires, it is my job to guide them and believe in the wisdom they have come to share with this world. This is why I decided a while back to move on from holding my own teleseminars and workshops and webinars to teaching others how to create the same for themselves.
