Again I am here to encourage those who are just starting not to give up. There is a tipping point and if you give up, you will not find it. My journey started almost 4 years ago. I have been through a lot of setbacks. I was just starting to make money on Squidoo and I had about 12 lens up. I failed to read the TOS completely and violated a few of the terms and all of my lens were locked. I was back to ground zero. I finally got a forum up and it was very very active. I had a lot of ladies participating. Then out of the blue, after a really good year, it was hacked and my web designer was no where to be found to help me. I had to start all over last month. It was eat up with viruses I think. Still not sure. The penguin update or something totally affected my blogs. I had two that were getting some great traffic and converting like crazy and one day, the visits dropped to like 2 to maybe 15 per day! These are just a few of the setbacks that I have had. There have been more, some in my personal life as well, but I just kept going. I started over at Squidoo and followed the terms very carefully. I have 10 lens in tier one and ranking well in Google and 26 more that I am tweaking! I rebuilt a website and am now learning the back office stuff (no hair left) so that I won't have to depend an anyone for this. My blogs are back up in traffic and am working on my second wordpress site. Needless to say the money is following. This did not happen overnight. Like I said, I started this almost 4 years ago and I am a huge procrastinator. I had also invested a lot into personal development classes. I have learned that I get a lot further when I invest into me and it is just as important as investing into the business. My state of mind and my attitude and beliefs greatly affect everything I do. I have been at this close to four years and my tipping point was in December of 2011. Out of the blue I had a $500 dollar day! It's been almost a year from that day, and it just gets better. I see no ceilings on what I can do now. Instead of getting down in the dumps and beating yourself up when something bad happens in your business, stop, relax, breath and look for the opportunity in it. There is one there I promise. Keep the vision in your head of not necessarily how much money you want or need but where you would like to be. I keep seeing this hammock on the beach and this fabulous kitchen in my future for all my cooking adventures. See it in your mind and believe!
