My Real Life Story
..... of Failing & Bouncing Back Again......
and How I Ended Up Building This Website
Hi... I'm Ros. I have been living in Kuala Lumpur and it's neighbourhoods since 1992. I studied in University of Malaya and got a quite good job right after graduation. Soon enough, I joined the "career people commitment" club. You know, the car loan, the credit card bills... the stuff most working adults think we can afford because we have good paying jobs.
The first two years of my career was a learning curve to me. I worked hard to get the experience, to please my bosses and to pay my bills... but then I thought to myself - why I’m doing this and am I going to do this for the rest of my life?
I’m Feeling Sick Of My 9-5 Job!
I still remember an advice given by my ex-primary school principal every week during the weekly Monday’s assembly,
"Children, you must study hard and pass the examinations in flying colors so that you can go the university, and get a good paying job. Then, you can make yourself proud and be happy."
I studied hard. I went to the university. I’m having a good paying job. But I’m still not happy... most of the time. I’m feeling sick of my 9-5 job and I'll let you know why. Let’s see my typical working days schedule....
.... and the cycle continues.
Whoa... a rather boring schedule that I’ve to bear every day, isn’t it? I’ve even thinking of getting another job but hey, the cycle still goes on right? I would still facing the same 9-5 job schedule, don’t you agree? It doesn’t matter if I jump to another job, I’m still stuck with having a job (and a boss) because I need the money to pay my bills and to live. No wonder I’m feeling so damn sick with my 9-5 job.
Did you notice something? Hmm.. my daily working schedule seems to be the same as yours, isn’t it? What? We’re sharing the same misery, the same feeling of sickness? Whoa.. don’t freak out, not just yet...
Does The 9-5 Job Secure?
Just don't get me wrong. I love working in the accounting field but I'm not in the idea of working for other people for the rest of my life. I don't want to depend my life on my job. I want financial security.
Financial security? Let's see what's it really means.....
If you are 110% sure that you can depend your life on your job - meaning there is NO risk of you getting fired, NO risk of not getting paid, NO risk of having the company to stop its operation or NO risk of you getting critical illness or meeting a terrible accident (and can’t work). In other words, there is absolutely no way that you can lose your job (and your monthly paychecks). No risks. No worries.
Then, congratulations. You have a financial security.
But, I don’t. I have no control over the risks, and I’m worried. Ouch.. I’m feeling sick again.
This is a real life story. A friend was fired as part of the company restructuring. He received a compensation, of course. But, how long do you think the man can survive on the compensation money when the bills piled up - the mortgage, car loan, credit cards, with 6 little children plus a nagging wife to taken care of? His car was taken away and his lovely house was almost being auction off by the bank. He felt into an emotional hell.
My friend recovered, but I still shudder of the mere thought of having to go through his experience. Ouch.. I’m feeling sick again.
Dare To Dream.... Dare To Fail.
I don’t want to be frustrated like a square peg in a round hole for the rest of my life. I want to get out and start something on my own! So, I looked into ways that will help me get out of my 9-5 job, sooner or later. This is when I got caught into the direct selling business, or better known as the multi-level-marketing (MLM), a rather fancy name I think.
A colleague (obviously, she also hate her 9-5 job) persuaded me to sign-up for a direct selling company. I was really attracted to their sales-pitch of being able to quit my day job within 1-2 years and getting luxury rewards such as free houses, cars and vacations.
I attended seminars and team discussions (even at odd hours), bought the recommended books, listened to hundred of inspiring tapes, performed cold callings and personally used the products itself. I even went the extra miles of building a website to promote the business.
In 3 months, I quit. Period.
I decided that direct selling is not for me. It drained too much of my energy, consumed my private time after-work and required me to work during weekends with strangers. I was extremely worn out.
I failed. I bounced back.
Dream What You Dare To Dream....
I’ve Found It!
I’m not really happy with my 9-5 job and I want to quit it, someday. I want to work from home. I want to become a work-at-home-mom if I have kids later on. That’s my dream. My life goal. My special prize.
I failed with my direct selling business, but I’m not just about to giving up my dream.
Remember that I’ve built a website to market the direct selling products? The one that failed to attract any visitors (traffic). I knew the site failed but I don’t just sit back and do nothing. I want to know why it failed. I really need to know, so....
I read hundreds of online marketing e-books written by various internet gurus that I can get my hands on, until I become an online marketing addict. Then, I realized that all of them pointing to the same direction.
To have a successful business online, I need to build a website that works - a website that can attract hundreds of free, targeted and willing-to-buy visitors per day, every single day.
I must start where they (the visitors) start. Visitors start surfing the internet for information, not solutions. I must give them what they want by converting my knowledge into in-demand, high quality CONTENT. My theme-based content will ranks high at the Search Engines, attracting free, targeted TRAFFIC, interested visitors. Then, I’m able to develop trust and confidence (PREsell). Then I can MONETIZE my warm, willing to buy visitors.
That’s C-T-P-M as teaches by Dr. Ken Evoy, the founder of SiteBuildIt (SBI). C-T-P-M is the perfect way to build a website that works for any online business.
That’s it! I can make a living doing what I love. Whatever passion, skill, hobby or anything that makes me happy - I can turn it into a living.
From juggling, country music, horses, rc cars, gift ideas, kids game, cooking, weight loss, hair style, weddings, favorite vacation beaches, debt consolidation, bookkeeping - any topic that interest me is indeed a topic of interest to thousands of others too. Why not turn it into a living?
The biggest mistake people make in life is not making a living at doing what they most enjoy.
If you're jobless and nobody wants to offer you a job - you can create one yourself using SBI! I highly recommended you to read some real-life case studies on how SBI link has helped ordinary people from all over the world. Review the case studies and read between the lines - you’ll get the point. The case studies are detailed recounting of individual SBI experiences, each in their own words, in their own styles.
A Turning Point And A Step Closer To My Dream
I have bills to pay but I don’t want my employer to control too much of my time and my life. I don’t want to stuck with my 9-5 job forever. I want to start doing something that I can depend on in the future. Looking at the results and the eye-opening case studies, I believe I’ve found what I’m looking for.
SBI is an affordable, risk-free, all-in-one solution that’ll show you how to turn your hobby, passion or skill into a profitable online business. Anyone can build a successful website even if you don’t know web design or HTML.
Frankly, I didn’t buy SBI right away. It seemed a bit pricey, at first. But, when I looked at the comparison with other web hosting solutions, and when I read more and more of the free information given, from free courses to thought-provoking e-books - I became really excited. At 82 cents a day, SBI is incredibly cheap, and worth every single cent.
I built my first SBI website which contains about 50 pages by myself. Man, I was so proud with my effort. The theme was about "hosting" but I soon neglected it as I have no passion nor expertise on the topic at that time. I have made a mistake of not following the SBI Action Guide closely and have chosen a wrong theme.
Most people make a common mistake - by thinking of failure as the enemy of success. You’ve got to put failure to work for you... go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because, remember, that’s where you’ll find success.... on the far side of the failure.
A Neglected Website That Scores?
My first SBI site was neglected. I have no passion on it thus I didn’t make any effort to update it. In 8 months, it was rank 1,926,000 by Alexa ranking system. To my surprise, I received a small paycheck from Google for placing Adsense on that website.
I didn’t really know what to say, was it "eh?" or "wow!".
I decided to forgo my first website and invested into a few other SBI websites (including this one). I also decided to learn HTML and CSS to help me build a better looking website faster, even though I don’t have to. SBI is a very user-friendly all-tool-in-one website building solution that help every body (even a 14-year old school girl) to build a successful website (and a thriving online business), without having to know the techie stuff.
My websites are still growing and I’m still far from being rich (remember, success doesn’t come easily, it requires persistence), but I’m making my dream a step closer, and I'm happier now.
My Dream Keeps Me Going
Every morning, I wake up, take a deep breath and start the day by thinking positively. It really doesn’t matter how many times I fall. It’s the ability to climb up again, each time I fall that matters! Whatever failure that may comes my way is not a setback. It's a blessing in disguise.
You know, my SBI websites are helping me to come a step closer to my dream. That's why I've also invested into another SBI to build a special web site to help others to achieve their dreams too.
One day, my SBI websites would become very successful, and hopefully make more money than what I earn full time as an Accounts Manager. When I reach that point, I can fire my boss and be free. That’s my dream. My special prize.
When you cease to dream, you cease to live.
The Lesson.... Start Dreaming From Now
You know, it’s all in your hands. You can shape your own future, and SBI can help you to achieve your dream. We can't thanks Dr Ken Evoy enough for developing an outstanding all-tool-in-one solution that’s proven to help thousands of dreamers to achieve our dreams.
If you don’t have a dream yet, start one right now. Follow your dream. Don’t quit. A very special prize is there waiting for you.
He who is a bankrupt is not the one who does not have a single cent in his pocket but the person who does not have a dream.
