Do you ever get the feeling that people think of Multi level marketers, authors, coaches and online marketers the same way they look at used car salesmen? Slimy grimy, slick and fake. I don’t of course because I am an author and a coach. And I’m sure if you ask anyone who’s benefited from my services and the countless others who are in the same field they don’t think that either. Today I had a blogger write to thank me. Let me share what she wrote:
“Message: I am trying everything that you have recommended… at least everything that I can fit in. 🙂 I am being spotlighted tonight on ABC after answering a query about kids and CT scans. Yikes! I hope this is something good. The reporter was awesome and absolutely was fine with mentioning my blog name. So cool! You were just the first blogger I thought of to share the news. Before this I also had a small stroke of luck, parentsociety.com contacted me about being a contributor after they saw a comment of mine on their blog… again, something you recommended was to comment on 5 blogs every night.
Thank you!” ~Gina My Chocolate Peaces
I was so excited when she sent this. The part “I recommended” Gina was referring to came from her reading my book Get Famous. But today as I checked my inbox and saw a request from a reporter this is what it said:
We’re looking for stories where your back was so against the wall, entrepreneurship was the ONLY choice.
We’re not looking for people who planned on becoming entrepreneurs or who planning while still working. We want the “my butt was thrown straight into the fire” entrepreneurs.
Please no coaches, authors or network marketing/MLM. Must be in
business at least two years and profitable. Location unimportant.
