Do You Need a “Blueprint” to be Successful Online?

What if you could have a personal tour guide …

Modern BusinesswomanConsider this – spend a few minutes on google and you will find hundreds (probably thousands!) of “online success blueprints”… from how to create a website, to publishing an ezine; to creating your opt-in freebie, using autoresponders, publishing info products, writing articles, hosting teleseminars, being a guest on radio shows, writing sales copy and more…

They come in all shapes and sizes too: ebooks, toolkits, software, audio products, membership programs, etc.  I sell them myself and they’re great but, they’re not the only thing you need to be successful.

If blueprints were enough we’d all be making millions online.

A blueprint simply points you in one specific direction where personal coaching is like having your own personal tour guide to show you the way, highlighting important things along the way as they relate to YOU.

Think of it this way… A blueprint can teach you how to publish an online newsletter but it can’t tell you if you’ve actually created a good newsletter. It doesn’t know if you’ve put together the most noteworthy buzzable newsletter ever seen or, one that could go down in history as the worst ever. Nor can a blueprint provide feedback on how to IMPROVE a potential flop either.

Don’t get me wrong, a blueprint is a great starting place but, personal coaching provides specific and precise feedback that rapidly closes the gap between where you are now and the goals you have for your business.

And this is where I can help you …

Check it out… Big News for Part-Time Entrepreneurs!

.
If you are an entrepreneur trying to juggle your passion with a JOB or family priorities… you are going to love this news today!

It is rare to come across an organization that ACTUALLY feels fresh and new. What’s even more exciting is when it fills an obvious need.

I was invited to be part of it and now I get to share it with you!

Finally! World’s First (And Only) Organization for Part-Time Entrepreneurs

I was thrilled to be invited to join the mission to advocate for the success of part-time entrepreneurs as an Expert Advisor. I’ll be sharing surprisingly simple ways to achieve fun, fame and good fortune online – in record time along with 16 other experts in happiness and business matters.

So now I have a question for you.

Are you a part-time entrepreneur (PTE)? If you are passionately trying to grow a business “on the side” of your full-time life … with another job or taking care of your family for example.. then likely you are!

Why does this matter? PTEs have to be super motivated to step beyond a few unique challenges:

1) Comparing their speed of success with that of same-industry full-time entrepreneurs;

2) Reacting out of fear to these comparisons by signing up for costly training programs and taking marketing advice that is not RIGHT and not affordable for their differently paced businesses.

If PTEs are passionate about their business, but not finding practical, proven and easy to implement tips, tools and information to turn that passion into monetized success too… it wreaks havoc on relationships, finances and self-esteem.

But no longer! No more defining part-time success on full-time terms, no more expensive advice when affordable solutions fit your needs much better. PTE businesses are unique, and who you take advice from and your business actions much reflect your reality, nobody else’s.

Say hello to International Alliance of Motivated Part-Time Entrepreneurs (IAMPTE)

IAMPTE is the world’s only organization for PTEs, men and women of any age, trying to make money with a business or concept “on the side” of an already full life.
