Heads Up! 7 Motivational Quotes For Entrepreneurs To Keep You On Track

 

Two years ago Dirk and I didn’t even know what entrepreneurship was……

Entrepreneurial Quotes 1

Becoming an entrepreneur, creating our income and that of others, was the best decision we’ve made.

4 entrepreneur-quotes

Changing our lives, family perspectives, being able to work with our laptops and internet, around the schedules of our kids, earning what we deserve, deciding with whom we work with and that we want to help others to do that as well and SO much more benefits.

We know that it also takes time, guts, energy, investment, passion and a vehicle to create your dreamed success and freedom. Especially the letting go part of “old values ” and opinions of others, can be a tough one …

The Secrets of Successful Financial Help For Single Moms

 

Attention Single Moms Out There!

Are you looking for a way to make your life easier
as a single mom?

-This mom has a couple of life changers for you!
And I can’t wait to share it in this blog post with you.

First of all, I want to welcome you, and I’m happy you’ve found me
in the jungle of other articles and video’s, out there on the internet 🙂

I believe that everything has it’s  reason to happen, so let your visit here
be a valuable one right?
My goal is to helping you with finding the information you are searching
for right now: “Financial Help For Single Moms”

And I don’t know who you are, where you live and in what kind of situation
you’re in….
As a mother I can relate to all the single moms out there who are struggling
with time management and finances: mostly connected problems….

Are you still with me?

The financial setback after my husband hit bankruptcy in 2013 created an
unknown power in me, that changed my “vulnerable” social worker’s, hard working mindset,
in a super marketing online mompreneur!

What Transformed Me?

Inspired by a large group feminine online entrepreneurs, I found out that
working hard- not seeing my kids while my bills piled up
– proved NOT to be the solution
for my problems.

Finding an extra job seems often the only way out, but end up with stress,
sad kids and a mom with a broken mothers heart: leaving your kids while
you have to trade time for money just doesn’t feel right…

Working smart brought me new perspectives and created the
online home based business
that has been the solution for my nest.
I want to encourage you to open your mind for what is possible!

~ “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kyosaki created my
vision
and it taught me to
really SEE that money can work
for you.
In staid of the accepted way of thinking that you
have to work hard
for your money.

I want to encourage you to read this book!

Tips

Overcoming your problems might seem very difficult,
but it is not! When you feel like you can’t see the beauty of the ocean,
because you almost drown in it, it’s time to lift yourself up seeing the amazing
view of it!

Financial Help For Single Moms

#1 Work on your believe system:
believe you can climb out of your situation! Connect with people who overcame their setbacks
in staid of holding on to people who are talking more about their problems then their plans
and idea’s to overcome them.

#2 Focus on Long term solutions:
A loan to pay off debs or to paying your bills is an understandable action….

But after you’ve read the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, you will understand that investing money
can create more income and can save the time investment you would put into a job.

But where to invest it in?

Okay, good question 🙂
I had no idea how to invest before I got started with the online business system:
That makes it possible to earn the same amount in one single day as my monthly
social workers paycheck.

This other blog post that Dirk & I wrote, will lay out
the online business system I’m using.

#3 Invest in knowledge and trainings:
…to teach you what’s needed for another way
of solving your money issues.

If you keep on doing what you always did, your results will be never change…
Dare to step outside your comfort zone, take another path.

#4 Take action !
Great idea’s, learning new skills and reading great books will not change your situation.

You need to take action for change.
Go for it! Think about your biggest reason why you need
help for single moms.

And realize that stepping into your power will take you every where
you want to be!

It will show you a new way of thinking when life gets hard.
It will show you a new path against struggle

How To Bounce Back When Life Gets Hard

Quote

How does this quote makes you feel?

“If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.”
~ John D. Rockefeller

It makes me feel relieved that Dirk and I took another path, than the “accepted” ones….

But how about you? Are you still stuck in ideas that makes you believe that you have to live the 40 year plan to have all the freedom you deserve? That you have to work your life away?

That you should struggle to pay your bills? Because it’s accepted to be poor ?
And accepted you to talk about what you don’t have in staid of talking about dreams of living a wealthy life….?

Please don’t! There is another way!
Read on I will tell you all about the path of freedom and were you can find it.

I already saw to many people dying to young, for believing in that “old” path to become happy.
My mind already is unleashed, for believing that I should walk in line with people who lost their dreams doing what they love before their kids are grown up.

My mom, 46 years old, ended her own life.
My stepmother, 59 years old, died of cancer.

Life can be over tomorrow.
…are you spending your days doing what you really love ?

Back in time…

I remember for example that I used to have 2 to 3 extra cleaning jobs to pay for my bills, education, food between my of 17-22. It was hard work.

And even after becoming a mom myself, and Dirk started his first restaurant I had to take an extra job, being out of the house, away from our baby to afford life.

I saw NO other way. This was back in 2004….I hated this. I always was looking for a way to be at home with our babies. I tried many different things for as much time at home with them as possible.

I started a pedicure home business to work around the baby schedules. But I almost broke my back carrying all the heavy equipment, because we had no room extra to practice this at home.

What a nightmare….

For 7 years I worked in a overnight-job, slept at work: to enable myself not to miss daytime with our kids, and go to work at the end of their awake day…

When I then new what I know no about ANOTHER way to make profits to pay bills, OMG!

Since the kids went to school I switched to a day job that enabled me to see them at night. But was as well far from ideal: My social worker job does not allow me to earn enough to pay back the BIG financial setback and restaurant bankruptcy Dirk and I suffered from in October 2013 with result: $300.000 in debt.

But as I always love to look forward in staid of looking back with regret….

I feel so thankful for the moment that our path crossed a message with a video and a link: that brought us the online system that helps us now designing our ideal lifestyle.

Your ideal lifestyle might be totally something else than ours.
Bur realize that you NEED to strike out on new paths if want to succeed with creating your ideal life.

There is a path leading towards freedom, being free from any constrains, a life sucking job – although it’s a part-time one-
living life on our terms, to be unleashed and rise up!

And you know what?

We are succeeding! And success IS smiling at us.
Because we decided to took an alternative path.


Today

Now we’re guiding our team on the exact same path we’re walking on. That team is called
TEAM UNLEASHED!

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty – The Solution For The Mind Blowing Issue …

What An Awesome Movie AND Illustration Of
What IS Possible For YOU

Is your mind fighting against your dreams, because you don’t see a way out of your killer rat race?
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty – The Solution For The Mind Blowing Issue ...
and what you can learn from it:

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty – The Mind Blowing Issue …

Do YOU ever wander? ………
About the solution for the mind blowing issue? And how to change it?

  • “Is this what’s the purpose of life”?
  • “Do I have the courage to break free”?
  • “Can I live my dreams”?
  • “What are my dreams”Just  a couple of questions…..

That ! ! blows my mind – and that of Dirk- my husband and dad of our 2 kids.
That a lot of people are thinking it, and they are suffering from the prison of their working hours…..
To be at a certain place, at a certain time, to earn a certain amount of money….

I remember a day in summer, sitting at work, looking outside the window, the sun was shining and I was stuck there… My vision came to me.
Our kids were at the house of their grandparents -having a lot of fun though-.
But without their mom or dad to be the most important influence in their childhood.

I was realizing there must be more in life than looking outside the window, at work, desperately want to spend time with my kids, my friends…..
I wanted doing things that matters more, than work for set hours and ask permission for a toilet break at a meeting!

My vision is being able to help others to live their dreams, help them to step into their power, without paying with my own valuable family time, my dreams.

But I never knew how.

Until

Secret Life Of Walter Mitty

I finally jumped into a new online world with free souls: entrepreneurs.
And I never felt so at home than surrounded by like minded free souls, willing to do whatever it takes to build their dream life.


This Amazing Journey

Just a quick view back in time ……
I’m
educated as a social worker and my mindset as well:
educated to do what I was told, helping others in a setting of a job, with a small paycheck, while doing tough work.

I realize that working for a boss almost killed my dreams.
I almost believed that it’s acceptable for saving dreams for 67+, when people are “allowed” to travel, to do what they love after a life full of hard work.

That is the accepted value… of the big black mass….of a lot of people around me.

But YOU might be in that mass….
Tying to get out but you don’t know how?

We do know now, this is the road we are walking on.

“There must be more than an unhappy life”, right?

We opened our minds when we found others designing their lifestyles, being able to fire there boss, because they learned how to market online and leverage systems that can work for you, while you are spending time doing things you really love.

-And that is not being stuck at work your whole life, right?-

When people are asking me why are Dirk and I doing this “internet Marketing thing” ?
I always answer:


“Because there is more in life than work your life away.
Would you wash your sheets by hand, when the washing machine can do the job as well?”

 

There is a way of doing the things you love,
and provide for your family,
and live a life full of abundance and prosperity,
IN THE SAME LIFE!

Conclusion

That’s why I love The Secret Life of Walter Mitty –

And The Solution for The Mind Blowing Issue

Is You!

Your willingness to make a change.

 

What are you going to do with it?

 

Let me know your thoughts, your dreams, your issues!
They might not be as hard to solve as you believe.

There is ALWAYS a way out.

This social worker mom is a a sales mentor now, a team leader, earning residual income online.
And I’m teaching other open minded, trainable people the exact same things that helped me and my husband to break free from the endless 40 year plan.
Just follow the road to freedom:

Overcoming Difficulties By Positive And Proactive Thinking, Is It Truth Or Hype?


Overcoming difficulties by positive and proactive thinking, is it truth or hype?
You will find your answer in my blog post if you read on with an open mind for finding a way to make life easier! 
Difficulties are part of life … That is a truth, right? But what about the hype? Is there a prescription that can be used by everyone? The sooner of later, every person will face difficulties as, sadness, pain, sorrow, loss. But how to deal with it? There is a solution … This is what I learned about overcoming difficulties by positive and proactive thinking.

Lets Travel Back In Time For Finding Answers

Overcoming-Difficulties-By-Positive-And-Proactive-Thinking

My personal journey to the truth goes way back in my own family history…
I remember that my schoolteacher once gave me a grade for “laughing” and being a happy and positive kid. I was about 11 years old.

Although I had a lot on my mind and had to overcome huge difficulties at home, somehow I was blessed with a happy character. Or was it an ability for positive and proactive thinking?

My parents’ marriage was tensed and they struggled finding balance together. From time to time, there was a lot of shouting, tears, frustration and anger at home, around me.
Part of the unbalance marriage was due to my moms depressions and her feelings of insecurity. The roots of my moms sorrow went back a long time to her childhood ….

She never overcame losing her dad in the second World War:
my grandfather was taken away by German soldiers and was finally sent to Auschwitz, a destroying camp for Jewish people, like my grandfather.

Her mom, my grandmother, married to another man after the war, who already had 4 children. And they didn’t got along well with my mom and her sister. My mom’s childhood was not happy seeing her mother being dominated by her new husband. And regularly, he punished my grandmother with a painful hit in the face, in front of the children.
Not being able to get over this, the marriage of my parents became tensed.

What I’ve Learned, What You Can learn

Overcoming Difficulties By Positive And Proactive Thinking, Truth Or Hype?

I learned at a young age to find a solution for serious difficulties, like for my almost divorcing parents and a mother that didn’t want to live any more from time to time.

…. Somehow my mind was always my best friend and it always whispered solutions, how weird that may sound!
I never ever gave up, found ways that made me feel happy. When I felt sad I didn’t sad down in despair, but went out to take action and searched for activities that made me feel better. Like positive brain fuel.

I was blessed with finding a lot of friends and hobbies.
And somehow, I always knew that one day I would be able to look back on overcoming my difficulties that I was facing that time.

Now I can say: “I DID!”
And this can be done by you as well. But you need to tap into the right resources, find the right books to read, audio’s to listen to.

Btw ….Here you can read Dirk’s blog post about how to deal with failure.

-Are you still with me here?
One key for making life easier is personal development!

-Please continue reading …….

How Everything Will Fall Into Place

Overcoming-Difficulties-By-Positive-And-Proactive-ThinkingLater in time, growing up, I learned how everything was related: and that my taking action and positive could be labeled as “Proactive Thinking”.

I started to read personal development books, like “The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People” , by Stephen R. Covey.

And in there I discovered how overcoming difficulties can create new personal strengths! Understanding this process, now enables me to teach others how to overcome difficulties by positive and proactive thinking.

I discovered that being part of a family tragedy, I learned as a very young girl to think Proactive: One of the 7 Habits, mentioned in this book. Which means more than merely taking initiative.

Let me explain what Proactive Thinking means and how it can help you make your life easier.

Ready? Here it comes ….


Pro-activity and Reactivity, Explained
~ by
Stephen R. Covey

Overcoming Difficulties By Positive And Proactive Thinking, Truth Or Hype?

Pro-activity
It means that as human beings we are responsible for our own lives. Our behavior is a function of our decisions, not our conditions. We can subordinate feelings to values. We have the initiative and the responsibility to make things happen”. Look at the word “responsibility” – “response – ability”- the ability to response. Highly pro-active people recognize that responsibility. They do not blame circumstances, conditions, or conditioning their behavior. Their behavior is a product of their own conscious choice, based on values, rather than a product of their conditions, base don feeling.

Reactivity:
Reactive people are often affected by their physical environment: If the weather is good they feel good. I it isn’t, it affects their attitude and their performance. Proactive people carry their own weather with them. Whether is rains or shines, makes no difference to them.

 

Overcoming Difficulties By Positive And Proactive Thinking

Step Into Your Power

Feeling sad never solved my childhood difficulties- it was beyond my powers as a kid, because it were my parents’ problems –
By creating situations that would make me feel happy, like spending time with my friends, sports, and work hard and create good results in school and helping others,
I practiced pro-activity! I decided to find happiness. I took responsibility for my feelings.
THAT overcame my difficulties in life! And can be done by you.

Beware

It’s a understandable, BUT in my opinion a weak mindset to say that you always have to “go with the flow”.
Without taking course of the direction in a situation where you face difficulties, life will live you! I found out that you will be easily victim of problems and difficulties doing that.

Flipping the situation over by pro-activity, I’m positive that you will be able to change the direction of your life!

Conclusion

What my mom couldn’t do, I learned! That changed my kids future, it saved my marriage. It makes me a happy person, a better mom and lover. It makes me a much nicer person to share our planet with :-).

My early learned life lessons thought me that holding on to positive thoughts, taking action with pro-activity, I’m able to take be in charge of the direction of my life and my beloved ones.
And it is such a wonderful feeling that by writing down my personal history, others can learn from what it gave me.

It’s my mission to show other individuals the way …
overcoming difficulties by positive and proactive thinking.

If You know How To Ride A Bike, You Can Build Any Business

As some of you may know, I love to ride my Surly Moonlander Fatbike.  And just a few days ago we went for a ride on the beach.

Think about it, if you know how to ride a bike the destinations are limitless!
In a straight line it is only a 10 minute bike ride to the beach but that is not really exiting, now is it.

So we always try to find new routes to get to the beach and in a crowded city that is not always that easy.

Anyway, I found this hidden path that was running IMG_7284along a fence at one side and on the other side it was basically a long way down covered with trees and thorns and nettles.

Awesome! We had to get out of our comfort zone and just go with the path laid out for us. There were fallen trees and bumps in the road.

At the end of this path we had to go straight down. This way tricky because there was a ditch below.

But if hang towards the back of your bike a little and use your back brake to keep control, you will be oké. Just let the bike do it’s job.

We stayed dry!

Adrenaline was pumping through our veins and we headed full speed to the next challenge.

 

But…My friend lost a paddle!

We had two choices, turn back home and that would it for that day or find a solution.
Luckily we were nearby my parents house and my father is somebody who always loved his bikes and never throws anything away that can be used.

YES! I was right!

My dad had a pair of paddles. The perfect match for my friends bike.

So 30 minutes later we were back on track…

Through the dunes, but over the cycling paths. And, because it was still light, I saw this path. It was a clear and open path under a tunnel of trees.
I said to my friend

We need to go in here, we never tried this path before! Who know what it will bring us.

So we didhow to ride a bike

And it took us further and further into the unknown. But because the sun always sets into the west and we have beautiful sunsets at the beach, we knew exactly what direction we needed to go.

With the end in mind, we kept going.

After a lot of ups and down we came to an open aria and I recognized where we were.

Again we had to choose…

Going back was not an option, going to the left or straight would bring us back to the cycling paths. Or we could turn right into an aria that was not only unknown to us but there was also a sign that said

No access, service road

Now, I’m not saying that you should brake the law or something like that, but sometimes you have to bend the rules a little. I thought as long as we stay on the road and make sure nobody is hurt and nothing is damaged, we might discover new ways!

And my friend didn’t see that sign and I forgot to mention it 🙂

It was a beautiful and breathtaking ride. It was so quiet and the only thing you could hear were the birds.

Everything was just perfect! The dirt road was hard so it was easy to ride on and the weather was perfect, there ere birds, foxes, rabbits and dears crossing the road ones in a while.

And…I felt like I was 9 again doing something that I knew that was not allowed but did anyway! Can you remember that feeling?

After following this path for about 30 minutes…..there was a dead end!

Again we had to choose…

Going back is never an option.

There was an electric fence and we heard something big grazing behind the bushes! We could easily open the fence and close it behind us.

But there was no road, just small trails leading to all directions! But with the end in mind we took of.

Sometimes it was a dead end, sometimes there was a pond, sometimes we had to walk and sometimes we came back at the same point.
Mean while it was getting dark, so we had to find the way out.

Finally, after a lot of scratches on my leg of all the bushes we arrived on an open space again and we could clearly see where we had to go.
After crossing this field there was another fence with a thick forest behind it. We followed the fence and we took a leap of faith that this fence would eventually bring us to our destination.

Was I right? Yep, there was a tarmac road that I recognized. It would bring us straight to the beach.

After climbing the fence and getting back on the bike I noticed that my front tire was soft. Having  4,8 inch thick tires, it is not easy to handle the bike when the a soft, almost flat.

I said to myself

Just a little bit further, you can do it! When you arrive at the beach we will get the pump out.

Well, on the beach I put new air in the tires and at that moment I had no idea that there was something wrong.

It was high tide and the sand was soft and sucking the bikes in. This makes it even for a fatbike hard work. After a mile or so I noticed that something was wrong. It was not the sand that made it hard to ride, there was simply no air left in my front wheel.

Yes I know it was dumb not to bring any equipment to fix the tires….

So…There we were. By now the sun went under and it was dark and we where just half way on our journey. What to do?

The reason why we do this is because not only it is fun, but it is also a great way to stay in good shape.
I’m the kind of person who likes to make the best of things. So, with the fatbike in one hand and the other person the other bike we started jogging.

First the beach was our goal and although we had a lot of “struggle” on the way, we made it. We never gave up.

And during that first mile riding on the beach, when we hit that drifting sand, I just knew that if I keep pushing those paddles, no matter what, I will get home.

But… BOOM…Flat tire!

Now, I could keep on pushing those paddles, but that will only damage my bike.

Sometimes you just have to get of your bike, make sure it gets home so you can fix it.

We ran all the way home and I can assure you running 15 miles with a fatbike in your hand was a whole new challenge for me 🙂

What does knowing how to ride a bike got to do with building a business?

If you know how to ride a bike it means that you can keep your balance, you have strong legs, because you keep pushing those paddles and your are not afraid to take some risk.

When you are building your business you will encounter many similarities.

Let’s go over them:

  • Finding new routes; When you are building your business, online or offline, you will be challenged to find new ways of doing.
    It is possible that you are doing something that was working for a long and suddenly it stopped working for you.
    You have to look for other ways to succeed. Because quitting is never an option.
    If necessary start over. Test different ideas until you are back on track. Get out of your comfort zone and try new things.
    Ones you do, you’ll that everything will go smooth again, like that beautiful ride on the forbidden road.
    And  then again you might hit a dead end. But now you are so many steps further and no one can take that away from you.
  • BOOM a flat tire… Your Youtube channel with all your marketing video’s is flagged and shutdown.
    Or your website crashed and you are out of business at that time.
    Are you going to give up?
    No, you’ll walk!
    You’ll make new video’s on a new Youtube channel and if necessary you will call people  to tell them the site is down…
    I don’t know, but you’ll find ways to get to your destination.

    Always work with the end in mind.

As I said before if you know how to ride a bike , you know how to keep balance. Well if you are building your business you need a lot of balance.
Not only financially but what I mean is mentally.
I always say

Everybody can build a business if they would really want to.

But not everybody wants to and therefor not everybody can. And besides that, you need to be a strong character, you need to have balance.
There will be times that you have to climb long and steep dune tops and straight after that you will go downhill fast.

But there will always be another dune top to face and that’s where the balance comes in handy.

 

 

Strong legs!
If you ride your bike a lot, you will get strong legs, there is no discussion possible about that. First somebody has to hold you.
Remember? When your father or mother or god knows who hold on to your neck and without even knowing they had let go. Only because your skills improved. You legs got stronger, you knew how to keep your balance etc etc.

Building a business is not much different.
If never give up and just keep moving forward,  your skills will improve and and you will get better in what you do. It’s about having the right education and the right mentors.

And you must not be afraid of taking some risk. If you are riding that path along the fence. You have the fence on your right hand side and on the other side it is a deep drop down.  At the end of the path there is this steep way down.

You could get of your bike and try to walk down, but because of all the drifting sand you’ll probably fall. Staying on your bike and just have a little trust will get you down faster and safer in the long run. And I’m sure if you take that road a dozen times, you’ll probably will not even use the brakes!

Anyway, as you can see there are a lot of similarities in how to ride a bike and how to build a business.

There is one more thing we didn’t talk about…The bike itself!!!

Having access to the right tools is maybe the most important aspect of all.  I mean did you ever tried to ride your road bike on the beach through the soft sand.
Or tried to ride 20 miles on the tricycle of your little brother or sister?

It’s the same with building a business. Having access to the right tools, the right education and the right mentors is crucial for you success.

When we started to build our business online, we didn’t know where to start.
Questions like

We knew that you could make money and brand yourself with a blog. But witch one?

Do we build one ourselves or do we use a free service? Or do we choose the right tool and take a subscription for a Viral Blogging system were you can learn everything there is to know about blogging.

We choose the viral blog. It is the one you see right now.

How to market?

We didn’t know anything. Again, choosing the right vehicle was crucial.

We were able to tap into a system that taught us everything to know about marketing online. Because of all this knowledge and education we were able to build a successful affiliate marketing business online and step away from the rat race.
