Everyone always says “Do what you love and the money will follow”. But that’s easier said than done.
However, it’s definitely worth it and it’s our entire mission.

I know there are roadblocks along the way to creating a career you love and that pays well.

But I want you to know that we’ve helped thousands of people to overcome them…and we can help you too. It just takes awareness of the problems and the ability to solve them one action step at a time.

Before you know it, you’ll be looking back thinking the hardest part was just making the decision to start.

Money_Hand1. Money – How long will it take to replace my current income?

Starting a business or coaching practice takes time. It could take 3 months or 3 years. However, you could triple your current income after 5 years (yes, triple!).

If you’re impatient you might not want to hear that… and it means you really need this next point!

2. Short Term Vision – I don’t want to take a step back in my career.

People with long term visions are more successful than people that only plan until the end of the month.

Also, most people overstimate what they can do in 1 year and underestimate what they can do in 5.

So taking a “step back” in your career actually means a step forward in your life.

Time_Girl3. Time – I’m too busy right now

Working hard in the wrong direction is not progress. I know there are so many urgent things to do. But your to-do list never stops.

The real question is “Will I prioritize what’s important over what’s urgent?”.

4. Belief – Will I really be able to do it?

If we can put a man on the moon, you can probably achieve your goal. Of course, it depends what your goal is.

Worse case scenario, you can start it on the side. If it doesn’t go well you can just go back to doing what you did before. But at least you learned something, grew as a person and had the courage to try.

5. Clarity – I don’t know what I would love to do.

That’s ok. Before you love a person, you need to go on dates. Before you love a career, you need to get to know them first too!

So just start researching different careers or business opportunities. Talking to people about them, watching videos, taking note of different things when you walk down the street.

Your brain is smart. It will find answers for you when you keep questioning it

6. Strategy – I don’t have a plan for the best way to start.

Nobody’s sure of the “best” way for you. But you can be sure it’s not waiting on the sidelines until the stars are perfectly aligned!

Remember: You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.

The best way to get a plan is to model (copy!) someone that has done it before. They will have a roadmap you can base yours on.

A Fast Vehicle

But what career options do you have to do what you love?

We believe it should be something that is low-cost, quick to start and something that helps peoplein an area you enjoy learning about.

This area could be anything from mindset, health or business.

We strongly recommend people explore the coaching opportunity. It’s a fast vehicle to help you reach your goals and is the 2nd fastest growing industry worldwide for good reason.

To explore this opportunity further, we have an information evening called “How To Become A Highly Successful Coach”. >> Check it out here.

All the best in your search.
