“When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” –Robert Kiyosaki
I have been blessed with becoming a student of the industry. About two month’s ago while making friends on Facebook and shortly after the church had prayed for me to find a J.O.B., I came across Josh Coffy’s profile. Now part of making these friends on Facebook is to find those who are also in the same niche. If you want to get better, you have to be open-minded and teachable. I had to humble myself and let go of my pride and seek help for becoming a better marketer online. I mean heck, I have been in the industry for as long as he has been alive! However, due to other issues, I just wasn’t making it in the industry. You can find out a bit more of that in my about me section.
After a few minutes, 30 or so, chatting on Facebook. Josh was excited to teach me even more about finding a method of operation. He said he wanted to show me what he does to generate leads for blogging. Little did I know he was going to be showing me a power point presentation that he created while I took a few minutes to get a cup of coffee so that we could continue via Skype. I didn’t even have a mic but yet he called me up. He spoke while I typed back in response. Where there is a will, one will find the way to get the education, right? Needless to say, we have become a team of leaders working together to help and find others who want to succeed.
You see, even though I might be older and have some wisdom in the industry. I am not updated when it comes to marketing on the internet. I had to find someone else smarter than me in that department! Again, learning to let go of pride and ego, I had to remain teachable. I had to become that sponge and absorb the new skills of marketing.
One such skill, was learning how to develop Twitter Followers. Josh suggested that I sign up for his Twitter Boot Camp. I did as suggested and have found that my followers have increased over the past thirty days! I was averaging anywhere from two to ten followers a day at the time. Today, I am reaching about sixty people! Now that is just insane! I never thought that I could be having so many new people wanting to become friends on Twitter!
Josh is truly passionate about what he does and knows how to get results! He has become my coach and mentor for internet marketing. He continues to inspire me to become a better marketer. I look forward to the years to come as we continue to both grow as leaders in the industry. As long as we remain humbled and aren’t afraid of making those mistakes, then we will always continue to be working towards our goals.

After a long hiatus, I have decided to come back with a new attitude and with a vengeance. I had started a blog a few years ago but then I became a salaried manager for a 24 hour gas station. Well needless to stay, I became too tired to do any type of blogging. I have always been aware of the network marketing industry but only recently have found something that will definitely add to my primary business. As most of you know, sometimes we have to go searching for coaches who are in the industry who might not even be part of our business. This is a business where yes, you are in business for yourself, but you truly never have to do this alone if you find the right people out there. Never be afraid to start investing time into learning and researching other people.
I recently came into contact with a young man, who is passionate about what he does and he has helped me get back on track after taking an hour and fifteen minutes out of his own time while he was on vacation with his family! Now, how many of our own “bosses” today will do that for you if there is something that you don’t understand at your job? Heck in five minutes, he even gave me a power point presentation as to what my schedule should be as a daily routine from this point forward. Now I don’t have a webcam as of yet, but he called me on skype and he did all the talking while I did some typing to communicate since I don’t have a mic just yet. Talk about going out of your element! We did our best with what we had to work with! As they say, don’t wait till you have what you need to get started, just get started and run! Now some of you might know of him and some might not, but my new friend Joshua Coffy can be found by going to http://www.joshcoffy.com. Sign up for his free 3 day twitter boot camp and learn how you can develop MASSIVE twitter traffic and turn those leads into sales!
I look forward in continuing my education and helping others who are looking to also grow as leaders in the industry. Remember, marketing is no longer just a belly to belly business. Although, offline marketing is still crucial to making sales, but so is the new technology of the internet. Learn how to build trust with your new friends online. People buy from those that they know, like and TRUST. Quit using the excuse of being part of the NFL club and get out there and do it! Remember you are responsible for your future. Get out of your own way and let God help you and guide you. As long as you do the footwork, God will provide! As I have learned from my Pre Paid Legal family, remember to keep God first, family second and work third.
