What Am I Getting Myself Into?

It was approximately January when Elijah first came to me with all this internet jibberish.  I had absolutely no idea what he was talking about.  He was so excited and so passionate about everything he had just discovered, it was hard not to be affected by it – even though I couldn’t for the life of me wrap my head around everything he was trying to explain to me.

He spent as much time as he could (often in lieu of sleep) reading and researching and trying to get in contact with anyone that could help.  I could tell he was getting really frustrated at some points.  It’s such a huge undertaking and learning curve and I still have no idea how he processed so much information.   I was a little nervous, to say the least.  He was throwing so much at me constantly and incessantly, I didn’t know what to think . . . Although I knew Wordtracker was an amazing discovery.

Very important: if you don’t understand or something’s not making sense, just ask!

The thing is though, now that I know what is attainable the possibilities are endless.  Internet marketing and having an online business is such an awesome way not only to make money, but also to meet people, network, and fulfill your goals.  We’re not out to make millions of dollars and be internet moguls, but my goal personally is to be able to compensate my current salary at my day job, so that I can free up my time and focus on the things that I’m really passionate about.

If there is one aspect that makes me excited about these new horizons it is the possibility of travel, whenever and wherever I want.  I look forward to having the freedom and mobility to see the world, and enjoy my life now while I can.  Our biggest stress would be having to leave our cat, Shandy, behind for extended periods of time, and  If it were up to me I would hide her in my pocket.

But that’s a another story. 🙂

I guess what I’m trying to say is that this journey so far has been one of biggest risks I’ve taken thus far in my life, and I’m not worried.  That’s not to say I’m not a little stressed because there’s still bills to pay and mouths to feed, but I know this is just the beginning of all the great things to come.
