I was in the middle of my 8th year in public education. It wasn’t really what I had anticipated after graduating from the University of Southern California just 10 years before. Graduating from USC was a childhood dream, but teaching 8th grade wasn’t!
But there I was, standing in a classroom in Norwalk, Ca., telling young, impressionable kids the same old rhetoric that most teachers in public education repeat day after day, “Follow Your Dreams” “You Can Be Anything You Want to Be” and “The Real World is tough out there, I am trying to prepare you for that!”
I felt like a hypocrite most of the time…..
I went from graduating from college, right into teaching students about the real world.
What did I know about the “REAL WORLD?” No offense to my teacher friends and former colleagues, but hardly any of you are preparing your students for the world that is out there. Once you try to make it on your own, try to make your OWN money to support your family, THEN you know what the “REAL WORLD” is like out there. (step down from soapbox)
Problem was, being a teacher was not my dream. I mean, it was a job, and it was supporting my family, gave me plenty of time off, but it just wasn’t what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
So after many stressful nights, talking about it with my wife, I left teaching to pursue my entrepreneurial dreams.
Only this time, my dream turned into a NIGHTMARE!
I started my own real estate/mortgage company. I thought I would make a ton of money, I could take expensive vacations, and really give my family the life they deserved, something I could never achieve as a school teacher.
And then the economy crashed.
Prices of real estate fell, mortgage companies were closing left and right, and mine did too.
I lost my house. I had no income coming in. It was a tough time in my life.
I remember getting on my knees one day and asking God why this was happening to me.
It was rough.
But I learned a valuable lesson.
God answers prayers.
I started to have people placed in my life that would introduce me to a new career path.
I learned a new term, “Internet Marketing.”
I had no idea what that meant. What was internet marketing? How can I make money doing it?
I have a masters degree in “Educational Technology in the Classroom” but I had never learned anything like what I was about to learn.
Soon, I was hooked watching any video, reading any ebook or attending any seminar I could about internet marketing.
I’m a fairly intelligent guy, but man did I struggle.
I couldn’t even figure out how to build a website. It took me hours and hours to learn tasks that I can now do in under ten minutes. It was a struggle.
If I struggled with all the technical stuff, then how was I ever going to start making money.
Finally, I decided that I could start marketing my services to local business owners. I joined a few networking groups, tried to sell my services, NOTHING.
At the time, Facebook started to really take off. It’s popularity was growing and growing, so I thought, “Why not sell Facebook Business Pages to Local Business Owners.”
I asked a few business owners on my son’s football team and now the money started to come in.
I gained a little confidence, more checks came in.
But it still wasn’t enough.
I decided to create a digital product on how I made money offering these Facebook fanpages to local businesses.
With the help of my buddy Kevin Koop (God sent him to help me, it’s quite a story as to how we crossed paths, but I sure do owe a lot to that guy)
I wrote a short PDF report on how to do it. I recorded some video training on what I did. I put them all together on a download page. I wrote a short sales page letting people know that I can teach them how to make money selling fanpages to local business owners.
And BooYah, my digital product creation business was born.
The date was November 13th, 2010, a day that changed my life forever.
Since that day, I have done over $500,000 in sales just by creating digital products.
I have created software products, private label rights products, digital information products, etc.
I live the life of my dreams.
I work from home, take my kids to school every morning, spend a ton of time with them, coaching their sports teams, and any other extra curricular activities.
I don’t have fancy cars, and don’t live in a huge house, YET.
But the freedom that I have is priceless. I don’t need to answer to anyone. I don’t have some boss over my shoulder looking at everything I do.
Of course it can be stressful, but what type of career isn’t?
So I do things that relieve my stress, I fish.
I am now the Internet Marketing Teacher!
What gives me the right to call myself the Internet Marketing Teacher?
Check this out:
If Google says that I am the Internet Marketing Teacher, then I AM the Internet Marketing Teacher.
Ok, so let’s move on…….
When it comes to internet marketing, I have done it all. Seriously, I have spent thousands of dollars on coaching, and on hundreds of products, I know a lot.
If you think you could use someone like me to help you out, then you might want to check out my coaching program.
It’s not cheap, but it’s the best around.
Remember, I am a former teacher, I know what it’s like to be the student and to struggle, I know how to handle all of your frustrations. I have been there and done that.
Maybe you don’t have the success yet, but failing is a good thing, it led me to where I am now.
I can help you turn your failures into wins.
So don’t think about losing, just think about time.
Don’t get down on yourself if you haven’t been successful, you never know, it might be right around the corner, you just need the guts to keep driving and the help from a regular guy like me.
Learn from my mistakes.
