First off, my apologies for this millionaire mentoring message with no photos.
I’m working late tonight.
I have a 4 year old asleep on my thigh and I’m sitting here researching and learning about the top bloggers online.
I’m on a mission.
Probably just like you, otherwise I can’t imagine you reading this.
Here’s what I learned from tonight’s investigation:
Millionaire Mentoring Message: Off The Beaten Path
While I was looking at some blogs of apparently successful people, I came across a guy named Darren Little. Now Darren might as well be a Brad Campbell, Jeremy Page, Tai Lopez or whoever you can really think of really that has made their success online in some way.
What caught my attention was the fact that he stated you should brand yourself first.
So, if you can’t see it….this is “off the beaten path” of what most people do in mlms, life and in their jobs.
It’s called being a black sheep in a sense.
It’s not always comfortable but to those of us that do it, it’s a part of us and when we follow who we are, we are more free.
A huge majority of people, including those in the Job Killing Coaching Program, are always seeking guidance for someone to tell them what to do, who to be…etc. etc. They almost seemed scared to take the next step without having permission or a lesson on how to do it. It’s almost like they don’t trust their own judgement or they are so afraid of failure that they sit around inactive until someone satisfies their need of “valid direction”.
I decided to write about this tonight because I got to thinking about how all of those successful bloggers and online millionaires that we “dream” of being all have one thing in common that perhaps we miss because we are so busy trying to be like them.
What is it?
It’s the fact that they are EXACTLY who they are. They don’t bullshit. They’ve had mentors, but they are not trying to be them. They are bushwhacking their own paths and they are not afraid to throw their own out there.
I work with a few others who promote the Job Killing Coaching program who are in the program with me and even we are guilty of not going on our own. We want to “stick to the program” and make sure that we don’t mess up.
Well, what if part of the program is realizing that our own “brand”, the originality of who we are is what makes our blogs more attractive and more real to you the reader?
I’ve been so “robot like” sometimes with my posts because I was so focused on the keywords and the content. I wasn’t trusting that I can actually read and research about a mlm company or two and write interesting mlm reviews.
Let’s face it, mlm reviews are boring sometimes! God, I bet you some of my readers out there would have a party if they could find more interesting ways to read about mlms rather than the same-o same-o.
So today, I want to start to commit to making my content more “me” and still informative.
To those of you that follow, I’m sorry I was such a drag. (Really this is an apology to myself).
It’s time to start testing how I (the real me) can make it with newfound skills rather than trying to constantly imitate and do as others. (Not that I’ve been doing that the whole time but my point is to be more me…..)
My brand is who I am and I’m starting to think it might even be more important than trying to sell an opportunity. (I’ll definitely keep you posted!)
Millionaire Mentoring: Why is it so hard to be me?
Well, it’s not that hard but when it comes down to it, but I do struggle with it just like most others out there.
Sometimes it’s just a matter of “getting started” and trusting yourself in order to start down the path of true self discovery.
I have always been a little “different” and even if I wasn’t, the fact that I think it makes it even more so.
I know I’m human and all that other stuff that connects us, but when it comes to feeling like everyone else or following the crowd, I have always felt like the outsider.
Even in my teaching job, I always felt outside the pack. Maybe it was because I was the only teacher who hung up student work one year. Or maybe it was doing my researching and standing up to bad administration about a decision they had made. All the others had let something go on for years, and I refused to lay down on it. Why was I the only one? What bravery does it really take to put your foot down and say enough is enough?
I don’t understand why “being me” has always felt different. But how could it not?
Different is good and my goodness we are all different!
I struggle to trust that ME is exactly who I was meant to be and my gifts and talents are loved by some and hated by others and that’s ok.
Why is it so hard to be me?
I’m my own worst enemy. I overthink things. I want to people please. I want to say yes when really I should practice saying more NO’s.
It’s hard to be me because I have been allowing dumb blinders to affect my progress.
There is really nothing to be scared of.
Darren Little talks of the X-Factor in order to achieve success.
Really I think he’s talking about finding your “you”.
I believe we all have an X-Factor and it’s just a matter of letting it loose and allowing it to be seen is what makes the difference in success.
We may not know exactly what our X-Factor moment or activity is just yet, but I’m pretty sure it’s not going to be found if we keep hiding ourselves and trying to simulate those who succeeded before us.
The successful bloggers are the DIFFERENT ones….and there’s no reason that the real you (or me for that matter) can’t be just as successful talking about the same things as them but with our own flair and style. We all speak to a different crowd and that’s what makes being unique valuable in the online world.
Perhaps my focus needs to shift from quantity to quality. And by quality, I mean adding more of myself into these posts.
Perhaps, it’s time to go off the beaten path!
Millionaire Mentoring: My Mother Would Never Do This
Perhaps another reason that I’ve been so regimented and “hiding” is because my own mother would encourage nothing but the acceptance of a the life I’ve already built.
It’s more her generation I think than it is her.
My mother has always been a pretty private person and I know I’ve challenged this in her as I’ve grown older.
I don’t have the same censors as she does and when she believes that I should just be happy I have a good paying job and that Job Killing is a scam, I know the exact opposite to be true.
I’m not happy with a job that pays good but where my mental health is challenged due to physical assaults and verbal abuse.
I know Job Killing is not a scam because I’ve made thousands of dollars because of what I’ve learned and others who I’ve help get to join have made money and found new hope as well.
My mother wouldn’t dare challenge authority to the levels I have even when they were dead wrong. She’s more from the “Be Seen Not Heard” era and that’s just not something I have ever been able to do. Perhaps I lack couth and I’m a bit crass but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I love my mother to death, but it’s time to let my own fear of disappointing her go by allowing myself to shine brighter and then perhaps I’ll be able to start writing to you all about how a Millionaire Mentor, such as myself, finally came to fruition.
I encourage you to challenge your beliefs and continually grow into who you should be and not who someone wants you to be!

We’ll be waiting to see the unique contributions you can make to the group!
