“How Can I Be Financially FREE”

“How Can I Be Financially FREE” I Kept Asking Myself Over And Over”

 

Let Me Tell You My Story!

Have you ever started something that just wasn’t working out?

I have… and it wasn’t a nice feeling, until I discovered another solution to get me on track.
I needed a decisive plan of action.  I knew what I needed to do and I did.

You see after going through difference experiences in life I’ve learned from my mistakes… how to stay focused and be persistent.

‘Does this sound like you?  Do you want to be Financially Free too?

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Angela and I live in New York.  Unemployed…
I awoke one morning with a lot on my mind worried about what to do with my life.
I couldn’t sleep all night…Just turning and tossing.

I’m not the type of person who wants to work a 9-5 job for Corporate America anymore,
after working for 9-10 years in one company only to be laid off! I was horrified when
I found out the company was laying off people due to consolidation of jobs.
It was a very disturbing experience. I’ve promised myself that I’ll never work for Corporate America…anymore!

I’m going to be my own BOSS!

OK! All sorts of crazy thoughts kept flowing through my mind…
‘OH! I’m going to build my own website…I’m going to have my own store’…The thoughts just kept flowing…

NON STOP!

Still confused…Staring at the walls trying to decide exactly what to do with myself…OK!

For Me To Be Financially FREE..

I came up with an idea!  I decided to use my talents by creating designs to become rich…YES! Very Rich…Build a website… add my designs to it and I’ll be…

Financially FREE!

I taught myself jewelry making and created a website.  After a few weeks I added products to the site.  No sales as yet!  Months after months still no sales.   The business was not working
the way I expected, and it did not help me to be Financially FREE!

This was CRAZY!  So many people are making money online with their website.  I asked myself ‘Angela what are you doing wrong?’  Then I discovered that I should market the website better.

Having a website without getting sales was like living on a deserted island….

You see building a website takes a lot of time and focus and sleepless hours, especially since you have to do most of the work.

I’ve searched the internet to find ways to market the site.
Sometimes participate in street  fairs, shows, flea markets to get more business exposure.

I’ve Spent over $20,000 within the years, between marketing, domain, hosting monthly payments, etc. and still didn’t see much SUCCESS…WHY!  I didn’t market the website correctly…

DISAPPOINTED!

I had a different perspective about owning a website to be Financially Free. Until one night before I went to bed  ‘the Aha moment’ came flowing, I decided to…Take ACTION!

Since I took ACTION …I’ve learned how to do social media marketing, blogging, internet marketing, video marketing, email marketing, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and lots more from the awesome trainings offered in the back office of this business.

Is there some truth that you need to tell yourself today?

Atlantic Antic Street Fair Experience

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a beautiful sunny day with a crowd of people walking along the Atlantic Antic Street Fair eating, drinking, listening to music entertainment and shopping… It took me a few hours to set-up a lovely display with four tables, a tenth and added side closures around the tent.

How Did We Managed At The Atlantic Antic Street Fair…

A few hours after the sun came out at the Atlantic Antic Street Fair my husband took down the side closures so more people could get a better view of our tent display.  Which was a cool idea.  After he took down the side closures we got a bigger crowd at the tables.

About one hour after, out of the blue moon it started to drizzle.

I was a nervous wreck trying to save my designs.

 The Atlantic Antic Street Fair Rain Experience…

It rained heavy for about half an hour. You should have seen me in action! This would’ve been a great video scene to see my reaction. LOL!  We moved the tables closer together, I moved my jewelry towards the inside tables, my whole set-up got changed.

 

 

 

 

 

One side of the table for the leather wristbands got wet and some of the wristbands got wet I had to spread out each piece to dry on a small table. Thank God they didn’t get damaged. The rain stopped, sun came out and everything went well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Customers enjoyed the designs, complemented me, tried on pieces, purchased designs, took business cards. Until I ran out of cards, some wrote down my information and some customers took pictures of the banner display I put up with website information.

Here are some mistakes I made, with so many luggage trying to set-up, I couldn’t find where I put my book to take customers contact information.  LOL! I forgot to take pictures of the lovely display. Right now I’m beating myself for not taking pictures as I usually do. 🙁

A photographer came bye took pictures of the booth during my busy time as I was trying on wristbands on customers etc. I wish I could get my hands on the photographer pictures.

Everything went well when the sun came out until closing time at the Atlantic Avenue Street Fair.

That’s my story experience from this year Atlantic Antic Street Fair.

To Your Success,
