Hi there, my name’s Julie Atkins and my aim is to help you get started online! I know just how tough it can be to start out – when I began, I couldn’t find the right information anywhere. Despite trying to learn, I found that all the so-called “gurus” left the biggest gaps in the information they handed out to you; the very basics that you needed to get started were hidden and I was frustrated at not being able to move forward. Now that I’ve learnt the skills I need to build my online business, thanks to a great mentor, I’ll be sharing these with you, but first you need to know one thing – there’s no way you’re going to make money overnight, no matter what anyone tells you. You will have to work hard and learn new skills (but you’ll only have to learn these once!); you’ll need determination and perseverance; but most importantly, you’ll need THE RIGHT MINDSET. I’ll be helping you out with skills, tools and resources which you’ll need so keep visiting to see what’s new. Together we can do it.
I’ll be posting regularly so check in regularly to read these; there’ll be helpful resources and information as well as meanderings about my day to day life online. Check out the videos in the appropriate section too …..
Social Media is the big buzz at the moment and it’s popularity shows no signs of waning. If you want your online business to succeed, then you’ll need to get involved in the social media element. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are the three “biggies” which you’ll need to master. If you’re looking to move your business forward, check out the Social Networking Academy, which will help you grow your business worldwide.
I love the whole social media thing and my free SocialMediaBranding report will help you begin your personal branding journey. Get this at my FanPage
There are many reasons why I love my online business but the main reason is the freedom to work at my own pace, in the comfort of my own home, running it alongside my “normal” day job.
Of course, it’s hard work – never believe anyone who tells you otherwise. It’s a long road you’ll be travelling and it’s not an easy ride, take it from me, but nothing worth having comes easy. BUT it is exciting … you’ll have to put in the hard work to make it work, as there will be no-one by your side telling you what to do, so you’ll need incredible singlemindedness, determination and above all, the RIGHT MINDSET.
Unless you have the right attitude to this business, you are setting yourself up to fail. As the saying goes “fail to plan and you plan to fail”. Even if you are just starting out, you can still plan what you want to do and once you have worked this out, you can get a head start on those who just meander along.
Remember three little things which will help you on your way:
* F = Focus
* D = Dedication
* D = Discipline
Make sure from the outset that you have a plan - a plan of what you intend to achieve, how and when. Don’t make this too hard or too unachievable. Just set yourself perhaps weekly goals which you want to get done- this is what I do each week. I write down all the things I want/need to do, both daily and for the week and work through them each day, ticking them off as I complete each one. Sometimes there are things left at the end of the week which I haven’t had time to do but I never get stressed over this – I just carry them over and work on them the following week.
It’s a proven fact in this business that whether you are a newcomer to online business or a veteran, having a mentor will increase your chances of succeeding one hundredfold. Once you have found someone who resonates with you, who helps teach and guide you in a way you like, then you should stick to that person, follow their advice and try to emulate what they do. It’s a no-brainer really!
I feel incredibly lucky in that I found a mentor right at the beginning of my ventures into the online world and that I have learnt things in a way that I never thought possible. Being able to build my own websites from scratch and building my business on a solid foundation were vitally important to me and the skills I learnt only had to be learnt the once!
So who’s my mentor? None other than Chris Farrell, who’s been voted the Number One Internet Marketing Service Online by IMReportCard (check out the reports here) and for one simple reason – Chris over delivers time and time again with what he offers on his membership site. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Chris and let me tell you, he’s one of the nicest, most genuine and honest guys around, who’s showing the world of internet marketing how it SHOULD be done!
But let Chris tell you in his own words how he got started online and why choosing to be a member of the Chris Farrell Membership is the best decision you’ll make if you’re even the tiniest bit interested in creating a sustainable income online:
‘…is it really possible to create a lucrative income online…?’
‘ …is it really possible to create a simple website and earn from it…?’
Hello, this is Chris Farrell.
I’m from London, England — but live with my wife Frida – and our four dogs (Alan, George, Mr Stevens and Lea) in Beverly Hills, California. Number 5 is on the way. Dog that is — not wife.
And yes – I do earn my full time living making money online.
I was ‘playing around’ online at the very end of 2007. But I didn’t take things seriously until 2008. I put my first site online in February 2008.
I started working hard and studying Internet Marketing from April 2008.
After 6 months, I had my first $250/days
Within 9 months, I had my first $1000/days
In August 2010, I launched my first ever high-end product launch. The product went live on August 24th, 2010 and less than 24 hours; later, this product had made over $1 million in sales (yes, $1 million and all verifiable)
The total sales over the 5 days we opened the doors almost nudged $2 million
100% of these incomes are generated 100% online and are 100% verifiable.
I am even more proud of the fact that this Membership Site has been voted the No 1 Online Coaching Program for 2010/2011 by IMReportCard.com
As a result of this, I have spoken with and been invited to speak with many great throught leaders and industry experts, including Brian Tracy, Gary Vaynerchuck, T Harv Eker, Alex Mandossion, Richard Branson and even Bill Clinton.
I am the first to admit that this whole “internet thing” still continues to amaze me.
I’m now a full time internet marketet and product developer working from home. I often say – after asking my wife to marry me – creating my own web based business has been one of the best decisions of my life.
But before I began – the questions above were the exact questions I had been asking myself for YEARS.
I was fascinated by the whole “making money online” business (and still am).
But it wasn’t until April 2009 that I finally TOOK ACTION and did something about it.
Has it been easy? Honestly … no
But can it be done? With the correct mindset, most certainly … yes
If there is ONE thing I’ve learned, it’s as follows …
Making money online is a skill – just like plumbling, or carpentry or cooking. But just like ANY skill, it can be learned.
I have now taught thousands (literally) how to get started and begin their online business. This ranges from those that view the web as “a bit of fun” and who’d like to earn a small bit of pocket money – to those who see it as an opportunity to become their own boss and change their financial situation to look after those near and dear to them (which is the reason I started)
I also have thousands (yes, really thousands) of verifiable testimonials too which you can see on my site.
I’ve been voted the No 1 Internet Marketing Service online for 2010 and 2011.
I and my team reply personally to every email I receive. But don’t take my word for it. Please Google me to see a selection of the thousands of verifiable testimonials.
I created my membership site for one reason and one reason only – to help you to create a profitable web business.
My aim quite simply is to create THE membership site that I wished existed when I began.
If you are anything like me – by far the biggest hurdle of wanting to create a successful web business – is knowing exactly what to do and in what order.
In fact, having a lack of “sgructure” was probably the biggest hurdle that I faced when I began online. I’m sure you’ve asked yourself these questions – I know I certainly did at first ….
Where do I go?
What do I do?
What’s the next step?
It’s very easy to get caught in the paralysis of analysis, isn’t it? Well – don’t worry.
Half the reason I created my Membership Site is to demystify the entire making money online process – and break down every single element into simple, easy to manage bit-sized pieces.
I would be delighted to welcome you aboard – it’s an exciting adventure and now really is the time to start”
Why not head on over to the Membership Site and take a look at what’s on offer? Don’t be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information/resources/free tools/videos that you’ll find there – simply start at the beginning and work your way through everything on offer!
