As I write this piece I’m 61 years old. My father died when he was 49. So far, I’ve lived 25% longer than he did and I miss him. However I am aware of how lucky I am to have survived this far, but also terrified that time is running out for me. I realise that time is more precious than money.
Life is short. That’s not an observation – it’s a fact. Right now I have more years behind me than in front of me. Time is becoming more and more precious with each passing day. Time to live a life that has few or no regrets. Time to spend with myself, doing things I like. Time with family and friends.
Last year as I passed by another birthday I asked myself “what, in terms of life, was left for me?” Retirement? Travel? Adventure? My father never got to do any of those things. He worked hard, and it seemed like he would have to continue to work hard, right up till his unexpected death.
I didn’t want to die, without enjoying my final years. I wanted to do what he never got a chance to do – to live a life on my terms – to live a life that gave me control over my time – and to live a life that gave me the freedom to do it every day.
Like him, I worked hard all my life. Raised a family. Struggled to pay a mortgage. Did the commute from hell every day, and lived a life dancing to everyone else’s tune except my own.
Paycheck to Paycheck
So – I decided – ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH. I was done with the 9 to 5 (it was longer hours than that too). I was done with working from paycheck to paycheck, and I was done with having to take holidays only when it suited my employer. Time, I decided, was more precious than money. So, I decided I needed to spend more time doing the things I enjoyed, but I still needed an income of sorts.
Just thinking of how I could achieve all the above made my mind chaotic. I tossed and turned at night. I spent hours trying to find a solution. A solution that would allow me to make the transition from the daily grind to a more comfortable and enjoyable lifestyle. I tried reading books, listening to podcasts and even went to seminars but nothing grabbed my attention – until I came across a guy called Stuart Ross.
I found Stuart simply – like you – from clicking an ad and discovering his company, and the education it delivered for online entrepreneurs. I signed up to his digital marketing course and it (genuinely) changed my life.
I am now a student of the SFM – creating websites, learning all about digital marketing and actually living a life on my terms. I now make my income online(even while doing the training you can “earn as you learn”) and I have more time on my hands than I could have ever imagined.
Imagine taking your ideas, your ambitions and your experience of life and work.? Then you create your own online business from all that? Imagine if you could also be an affiliate, for other products and services, and earn while you learn as you grow your own business? That is the opportunity that SFM provide.
This – at my stage in my life – was a huge leap of faith but I genuinely can say it surpassed (and continues to surpass) my expectations.
Not For the Faint of Heart!
A word of caution – its not for the faint hearted. But, if you have a genuine desire to make a dramatic and hugely beneficial change to your life than the rewards are truly enormous.
Click on any of the links in this post and sign up to Stuarts course – his intro videos are immediately accessible (and free) and they provide an insight into a world of opportunity that is literally yours for the taking.
You’ll only hear from me again if you sign up – but I hope you do, and we can someday meet up and enjoy that precious thing called time – and enjoy it together.
Always on your side,
p.s. – If you decide that you have the commitment and the desire to do this then I promise you this:
I will be your mentor/coach on your journey at no cost to you – yes i will give you 100% support and I will help you every step of the way to succeed. When I started out others did it for me so now its my turn to help others too.
