Six figures, six figures. It seems everyone who is an online coach or consultant uses these words as some sort of validation that they are doing well in their business. From the very first day of my online journey, I followed persons who boasted of making 5-figures in their business. I saw them as an authority and as an influencer. Even though most of these persons were making their money in US Dollars, I always felt like 5-figures in my currency will mean the same thing. So I set out the goal and made the decision to do it.
I followed every webinar and every free training to understand the basics of this online coaching world. There were many sleepless nights, burning eyes and frustrating moments as I worked night and day to get ahead. I did the work and I paid the dues for the first year. I put myself out there when I had nothing. I was living at my in-laws in not-so-good conditions. I did Facebook live-streams anyway. I organized my first Telesummit (the first in my country) and got connected to the moguls in Online Business. I never thought I would be interviewing the likes of Tepsii Thendo, Cassie Howard and Aprille Franks-Hunt. I hosted webinars and workshops. I created and delivered Coaching programs. Wow! Looking back, at that time, it seemed like I would never make any money. But I stuck with it.
In the second year, I continued moving up bit by bit. I could see how things were progressing, even though it was slow. Then...........BAM! I got a client to do some blogs for their business. They quadrupled their order about a month after. Amazing! I could finally afford the coach I wanted to teach me the good stuff (not the 'free' stuff). I worked with the coach for two months and everything went up from there. For the next few months, I was overwhelmed with the amount of work that was coming in from this little idea that I had of becoming a mom coach.
I added other services like Blog Management and Virtual Assistant. I also created free and paid offerings that are bringing me passive income almost weekly. My goal is to get that passive income daily!
Tomorrow is my birthday! I just ran an income statement report from my Wave account, just to see what's up. I was so surprised to see that my income from January to present is over six-figures! That was a shocker, but I knew I worked damn hard for it.
So, how can you do the same? Work your ass off! It may not happen in the first year, or the second year, but stick with it. Be consistent, get out there, make connections, ask for referrals, create content daily, be honest and PLAN! Believe in yourself and get rid of the haters.
You can do this!
