What Is The Six Figure Mentors, Actually?
You have heard me rant on about how you can change your work-life and achieve your dreams and golden goals doing online business. But when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, what does it really mean? What does it entail? What do you have to do? Who am I going to meet? What is really in it for me?
På dansk: Værktøjet til at skabe din store fremtid
This article goes to the core of what you can expect, should you make the decision to move on to the first steps of the journey to your work-life of freedom.
In my home country, Denmark, 22% of working people are dissatisfied with their jobs. In the US the number is as high as 70%. You would think that this would make a landslide of people leave their jobs and do something else. However, this is not the case. Why?
In the western world most of us live performance driven work-lives. We don’t have the time or energy to rise above the day-to-day hassle. Thinking it is easier to deal with “the devil you know”. The main reason we don’t move away is fear of the unknown. We tell ourselves: What if I can’t make it? What if I lose my professionalism or the position I have worked so hard for? Am I good enough?
Being dissatisfied with and maybe even complaining about your work-life situation is a conflict-filled place to be. And it calls for action. But if you do not act, it can be not only frustrating. Some experts say it may even be dangerous to your health. The situation activates our “fight-or-flight” instinct. But no fight or flight occurs. We get stuck in this realm of fear.
It is a little like when you buy a lottery ticket. You dream of winning the big prize. You know you might never, though. But winning a small win once in a while makes you stay in the game. Getting a promotion or a raise or a pad on the back every now and then keeps you thinking: Maybe, I wanna stay on for just a little longer.
I don’t know about you. But I certainly can relate to this. Looking back on my career it has been a line of convincing myself that my job wasn’t all that bad. But you and me … we can do better.
I found that what I have to do is ask myself “Why?”
Why do I keep making the same mistakes over and over? Why do I end up in the same situation again and again?
But even more importantly: What is my “Why”? What is my purpose? What do I want?
The latter question is the foundation to being able to replace the jobs that I don’t want. Answering the question is a work in progress. But for now I have found that breaking free is my preliminary purpose. And The Six Figure Mentors has been so very helpful in my quest. Read my earlier articles to learn how that came to be.
But not only that. The Six Figure Mentors also has the potential to laying the foundation for leveraging my professional skills and taking them to a new level. How? Well, let me tell you.
A Work Life of Freedom
What is it that The Six Figure Mentors are offering?
- It is an education. A step-by-step course in setting up an online business. All with a technical setup system with support. And you don’t have to be at all tech savvy either. A marketing system and support. Coaches, mentors and a network of co-students.
- A network of peers who are on the same journey as you – at different levels. Some have just started and others have thriving businesses. Some organise sub-communities for different subjects. And the culture is altruistically helpful 24/7 365.
- The opportunity to earn while you learn. You are free to set up a business according to your own wishes and goals. But if you are confused as to what you want to build your business on, you can start by promoting other people’s products or simply promote The Six Figure Mentors. It is called Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to start an online business, if you don’t know what product or service to sell just yet – and even if that is what you want to do, period. Many online businesses (among the best known are Amazon, Apple and eBay) offer commissions if you refer customers to their products and services.
So if you promote a product – say you create a video where you praise a product sold on Amazon – and you send people via a link to amazon.com. Then what purchases, these people make, give you a percentage in commission.
Many people have created thriving businesses doing just that.
Import and Export
The Six Figure Mentors also have an import/export education and support program. Here you learn how to make connections to great, reliable suppliers of great products all over the world. And how to setup an online business to “challenge Amazon”.
Your Own Business Going Online
The same principles as the ones used to set up an affiliate marketing business apply to promoting your own professionalism. Whether you want to promote your bakery or your consultancy firm, organic and ad-driven marketing can be converted into great business online. In the program you can learn to manage ads on different platforms, make promotional videos, write blogs, tell stories and much more. You can also learn different kinds of marketing principles and methods.
What is really cool is that you learn how to automate much of this. So driving customers to your business happens, even when you are not present. You can literally wake up one morning, to learn that sales have been made while you were sleeping.
The process of converting from the paradigm of a paid job, inside the performance culture mentioned above, can be counter intuitive and very difficult. And many fail. Look only to statistics which say that most startup businesses fail during their first two years of existence. This is no less true for online businesses.
The good news is that The Six Figure Mentors also “have this covered”. Not to say that you are guaranteed to succeed with The Six Figure Mentors. But the program is VERY focussed on helping you pinpoint your purpose, get the right mindset, keep up momentum and consistently move forward towards your goal.
Almost every day there is a webinar coaching your: Meditation, vision, keeping focus, masterminding, wake up call, and so on.
There are also online workshops in marketing mastery, tech support, Q&A and more. And you can have a coach to make appointments with and have 1-on-1 sessions online. And on Facebook there are groups related to The Six Figure Mentors posting news, tips and tricks or simply success stories to help you keep up the good work and make friends all over the world.
The program even has a library of over 6,500 online courses on every which subject you can think of.
My Business Vision
I have started my journey towards a work-life of freedom doing affiliate marketing. Enjoying the full support of The Six Figure Mentors. The next step for me, when I have pushed through with this, is my consultancy firm of coaching and personality testing. Then the artwork of cartoonist Josefine Overbeck, my daughter. Then my wife’s health consultancy skills. And so on. It’s gonna be HUGE 🙂
What Is an Online Business to You?
I don’t know what you are thinking right now, but I saw great opportunities in The Six Figure Mentors. And so far if nothing else, the experience has been life changing for me. I have a new perspective on my work life. And I have gained energy and positivity which attracts energy and positivity right back from my surroundings. It really beats working for other people’s purpose. It even creates energy to “put up” with working a 9-to-5, if I can only work with my online business on the side.
What do you think it could do for you?
