I started with virtual NAMS5, as a complete newbie. For six months I worked on my blog and spent time learning about internet marketing. Everything was building up to NAMS6, the live conference in Atlanta, GA. I was really looking forward to it.
I felt like a star-struck kid, when I got there! It was so cool to meet my mentors, meet the instructors, and meet my online buddies in person. It became a weekend filled with many a-ha moments, learning, sharing and creating deep bonds and friendships. Within that rich experience there was one golden moment that changed everything for me.
For various reasons, both external and internal, some based in reality and others just the demons inside whispering nonsense; I had begun to believe that I was headed down the wrong path with my blog. I was worried I had made a huge mistake. Those doubts were keeping me from making progress.
Being an idealist and a dreamer, no one has ever accused me of having tiny dreams! “Giving up” is not in my vocabulary. But unfortunately, I lack the internal guidance system that allows people to make that intelligent decision of knowing when to reassess and regroup – in other words when to cut your losses. This can be a very dangerous and frustrating combination.
Knowing this about myself, I asked Lynn Terry to give me feedback on my blog. I completely trusted her judgment and I knew whatever Lynn said would be my “guide”. I would accept it without regrets or doubts. That was the moment - when Lynn critiqued my blog - everything changed for me.
When I think back, it’s actually funny, because I realize there were so many things Lynn suggested I change. But what stood out for me then and still now, is Lynn Terry saying she liked my idea. Lynn Terry said she liked what I was trying to create with my blog.
It was a profoundly life-changing moment, because it was no longer about my blog. It was about believing in myself. Someone well-respected as Lynn Terry believed in my idea…I could surely believe in myself. Wonderfully so, something like this spills over to other areas of your life.
We are such powerful beings. What we say and do can have such a profound impact on someone else. Having taught university mathematics and statistics and owning a successful consulting and tutoring business for over fifteen years, I am aware that our roles are interchangeable. We are both teacher and student capable of creating these moments for each other.
My goal is to create these golden moments for others - to make a difference. It was a natural transition for me to become a certified life coach a few years ago. My love of writing led me to create my blog. It’s a community of readers and writers, where everyone can share their thoughts, promote their services or products and help each other grow, thus creating these golden moments. The articles are written with the intent to offer a solution or improve our lives.
I realized years ago that it is not always possible to pay someone back, simply because they don’t have the need for it, so I make the commitment to pay it forward. I would love to offer my blog as a venue for any marketer who wants to publish articles. Beginners who don’t have a blog yet or who are working on theirs can use it. People who already have a blog can use it and get in front of a new audience, create backlinks and more. Even advanced and pro marketers might find a whole new set of beginners who are hungry to learn from them.
My deepest gratitude to David Perdew, not only for creating NAMS but also for being my Vision Coach; without him I would still be flailing around. And thank you sooo much sweet Lynn; words aren’t enough. NAMS6 has fundamentally changed the way I look at my internet business. I still have a long way to go, but this is certainly a great beginning.
