There are so many creative people with pay it forward ideas here at WA you might say there are more ways to help than we have members. There is a thread that seems to be consistent in mosts posts. “I want to help others.” We find so many ways to help. Each of us takes a different approach to helping. Sometimes it is offering encouragement. Sometimes it is helping a member solve a problem. Sometimes it is simply sharing our story.
Lots of us want to be a life coach. When we promote WA, we are coaching.
I am a life guide. I don’t feel I can be a coach. Who am I to tell you what to do? But, I can help you evaluate your life and your values and help you find that one thing you want to accomplish more than anything else in your life. When you know your mission, it will guide your life. How you spend your time determines what you will accomplish in your life.
Margaret Mead said, “Never believe a small group of caring people can change the world. For, indeed, that is all that ever have.”
We can be most effective when we work together. Margaret Mead was active was active in the 60’s and 70’s. She didn’t have the advantage of the internet.
Today we can use the internet to attract millions of people. As a life guide, I have to be a futurist. I look at trends and write scenarios of what could happen. No one can predict the future. No senario I write is more probable than another. I can forsee a futer in which AI and automation can replace all repetitive jobs. Sales clerks, truck drivers and even paralegals will no longer be needed. Those jobs will be replaced by jobs we cannot even imagine. Employers will be hiring creative, adaptable people who have a broad range of skills. Everyone else will be freelancing. They will be hired to complete a project. When the project is completed, they will be fired and have to find a new gig.
Finding a job this is yeah will become more difficult as we grow older. By the time they become unemployable, only people who have their own business will be able to earn a comfortable living. As long as your health holds up you should be able to freelance provided you maintain your skills. When you can not longer work, you will have to depend on retirement savings and medicare. The trend is, people are not saving enough to fund a comfortable retirement. Unless you develop a business that provides you an evergreen income you will be in trouble.
You can find affiliate programs that can provide you a passive income. It is called internet marketing and it is what WA teaches. I prefer a busimness model where I get a commission based on the sales volume I develop in my sales team. Some people create passive income by buying commercial realestate. Some by creating a insurance agency. Others write and sell books or movies. Successful actors get royalties based on the profits of movies they work in.
I think the best opportunity for most of us to create a comfortable retirement in a relatively short time is by creating a multi-level marketing downline. Trouble is 90% of MLM marketing programs are scams. I look for companies that market quality products at competitive prices. I try the products and if I will use them myself, I will promote the business.
The internet makes it possible to promte anything you choose to work with to half the population of the earth. IM provides us an opportunity to develop income and help others that no other generation has had.
Whether you want to work for someone else, expand a brick and mortar business or create your own startup, if you ignore the potential of the internet to brand yourself or your business you are going to face stiff competition. When you use your website to tell your story you are standing head and shoulders above your competition.
When you help enough people solve their problems, you will be successful yourself.
