Our family’s entrepreneurial journey so far has been exhilarating!
The more we learn about successful entrepreneurial people and what makes them different from everyday people has helped us to not only understand our own subconscious beliefs and values, but to re-condition our own subconscious into developing a mindset and value system that is accepting of economic and personal success.
Our journey of self discovery has allowed us to look deep into our own habits, thoughts and belief systems and that of our children.
However, what has really inspired us, are the people we are becoming friends with along the way. Positive people with energy, motivation, connectedness and drive! These people are our reference group and by simply becoming their friends we are able to absorb their awesome energy!
We flew to Surfer’s Paradise on the Queensland Gold Coast to attend a three day intensive Boot Camp run by the guru of internet marketing, Sean Rasmussen. Sean’s rags to riches story was an inspiration! From working as an electrician on a mine out from Karratha in Western Australia, carrying a large debt and working very long hours, to becoming a wealthy and very successful (self taught) Internet Marketer!
He would spend twelve hours a day, six days a week, working on the mine site and then teach himself internet marketing during his few waking hours at home (and only sleep for four hours a night!).
He made it his highest value to change his family’s economic situation by being very intent on finding a way to build an online business.
Sean’s focus and persistence (and total support from his family) soon paid off, and within a couple of years he had built a extremely successful business that well and truly replaced his income from his JOB. In fact, Sean’s income rapidly grew and now he has a multi-million dollar business!
It seems odd that we traveled so far just for three days, when Sean and his family actually only live less than an hours drive from where we live here in WA. But, of course, being an Internet Marketer, means that Sean has client’s all over Australia and the world. But it’s pretty cool knowing that we have an Internet Marketing Guru who is well recognized world wide, living just down the road!
Our experience over the three day weekend was mind blowing! Sean’s amazing knowledge, enthusiasm and sense of humor kept us captivated throughout the event. We met and became friends with many fantastic people who inspired us with their commitment, passion and variety of topics they were blogging about.
Many had major hurdles to overcome to pursue their passions like Dave who is 21 and has Cerebral Palsy.
Or Lynda, who is his supportive Mum, has 4 other children at home, and takes the time to bring Dave to Sean’s Boot Camps because she also wants to expose him to the myriad of possibilities out there.
Or Dr Wiliiam… (or Dr Bill as he is affectionately known) who is a spiritedly 80+ yrs young!
Or Catherine, who dreams of working from home so she can still spend time with her gorgeous baby girl.
Or Helen, who came along with her husband Alex and we worked out that Trev taught her in Yr 5 in Geraldton!
Or Dale, who’s passionate about Natural Health.
These are just some of the incredible people we met and who we know will make huge successes of their businesses down the track, especially under Sean’s wings.
What we like about Sean is his down to earth approach to life. He carries no airs or graces. In fact he and his family enjoy much the same things our family does. They have a hobby farm with a mob of sheep and a crazy dog, their kids play soccer on the weekends in Bunbury and they enjoy the simple everyday aspects of family life as we do.
Sean genuinely wants to help people succeed and he really gives value far beyond what you’d expect with his training and programs. He makes genuine connections with people. Sean explains that with business it is all about finding out people’s problems and then providing the answers.
Now this isn’t the first time that we have seen this pointed out. In fact all the successful people and mentors that we have been fortunate to learn from all say the same thing.
Connect with people and help provide them the answers!
Sean Rasmussen points out that everybody is an expert. Just find what it is that you are passionate about and become that expert! Find out what people want to know, then build a business around your expertise area.
Thanks Sean for your genuine friendship, your energy and your teaching!
