Well, this is what the laptop lifestyle has...Stuart's face clearly tells he couldn't see the screen 😂
Anyways, in our last post, we told you about one of our mentors, Stuart Ross, also known as 'The Freedom Entrepreneur'. Now let's continue with his incredible journey.
What He Wants To Tell You About The Digital World
"I started my journey into the online entrepreneurial world with nothing more than passion, perseverance, a laptop and a dream! These days I feel absolutely blessed to have been able to create a successful lifestyle business in the education and technology industry that I absolutely LOVE – my driving passion is sharing the know-how and mindset that lets others feel the same way about their lives.
One of the most powerful concepts I learned from the top mentors I've worked with is the power of leverage. What do I mean by leverage? Well the dictionary says: "influence, power, force, control". But in my words, leverage is doing more with less – spending less time, effort, energy and investment, while gaining more income, results, value and free time. In my opinion the essential secret to living an abundant life is not getting a great job, but learning how to leverage your life.
Truly understanding this concept is what separates the wealthy from those who struggle financially. It's about shifting from the conditioning of doing just enough to get by or only working until you're comfortable, to abundance creation through continual growth along with leveraging your time and money effectively.
The traditional way of earning money is not great leverage – you find yourself chained to an office as an employee or taking the plunge with scary overheads as the owner of a brick and mortar business. In contrast, a newer and much better way to leverage your time is to become a digital entrepreneur. In other words, someone who owns an Internet based business, which can be started at a fraction of the cost of a traditional business and can also be built around your existing job until you find your feet.
Now there can never be one magic secret that will give entrepreneurs all the answers, but one of the main things that all successful entrepreneurs implement daily into their lives is a can-do mindset which sees opportunities instead of obstacles. The right mindset is the hidden key that sets people on the path to major success, and I've learned the hard way that mentorship is what keeps this on track.
In terms of actual business models that really work though, just think of the opportunity we have these days! Literally, the Internet puts almost anything at our fingertips, from services to knowledge. Not only that, it gives us unlimited potential customers from every corner of the globe, 24-7-365. If you can become a master at online marketing, I truly believe you'll never have to worry about finance, redundancy or feeling constrained again.
What's more, if you can master the art of digital marketing, then you can get started faster than ever before – even if you have very little capital or absolutely no idea where to start. This is because you can start out as an affiliate for other peoples proven products and services, just like I did. Ultimately, it doesn't really matter what business or product you have – opportunities come and go, but understanding effective online marketing keeps you safeguarded forever when it comes to making money and leveraging your life so you can have more freedom to do the things you love."
The Importance Of Learning From The Right Mentors
We wanted to start an online business but didn't know how or where to start. So when we discovered Stuart and started to notice how much knowledge he has, we knew we wanted to learn from him. We wanted to learn the things he does to be successful. If he's successful but you are not, then it's because he knows something that you don't know. We realized we had so much to learn if we wanted to have a digital online business like his. We can really tell we have never enjoyed learning so much before! lol. We feel great, we feel more than great because we LOVE what we are doing. And that's really the secret.
So this is one of the reasons why we joined the SFM. We liked his journey a lot and really inspired us to start this amazing business model. The great thing is that anyone can do this! So if you've been wanting to quit your job, or you refuse to have a traditional one, would like to have more time to spend with your family and friends, maybe travel the world and go to places you've never been to, live incredible experiences and enjoy every moment and you know you deserve it, then perhaps it's time to take action.
It's not about the money, it's about the lifestyle.
Please share our mentor's encouraging story on social media with all your friends and family if you liked it! Comment your thoughts and insights if you would like to :)
