The Online Entrepreneur’s Survival Guide

With the economy in constant turmoil, many folks are turning to the Internet to make extra money simply to make ends meet and put food on the table.

Becoming an online entrepreneur is extremely overwhelming for so many people. It’s like you just got a huge load of information dumped on you and now you have to sort out the puzzle of how to put it all together.

I remember back in 2009 when I started my online marketing journey. I was excited to begin a new career with the vision of the time freedom it was going to eventually give me. I was also very confused as to where to begin and found myself roaming around the web aimlessly looking for the next “shiny object” that was going to make me the most $$ in the least amount of time and effort.

This is the worse thing you can do.

As I see new folks every day looking to create an online income or make their first $1 online, I notice the same pattern by those who are struggling. It isn’t that there aren’t enough opportunities to make money from home. There are plenty.

I see 2 Major Factors affecting and inhibiting those trying to succeed making money online.

  1. Cultivating the Right Mindset: Ask any six or seven figure marketer, and they’ll tell you that mindset is everything when it comes to determining your success or failure. And it’s not something that just happens – it’s not something you’re born with. You have to cultivate it – make it happen. You do this by planting the right seeds and nurturing the right mindset as you weed out a vision that doesn’t align with what you want.
  2.  Further Your Education Every Day
    There isn’t a single marketer who knows everything there is to know about online marketing. Not even the multi millionaires. One thing that sets successful people apart from those who fail is their hunger to learn. If you’re not willing to invest in yourself…who is going to take you seriously?

You need to get a handle on your time management. Part of your education has to be knowing how to better manage your time. We’re all guilty of messing this one up, but you have to practice better habits so that you get more done.

This is especially crucial if you’re in the beginning stages of your success and bill collectors are breathing down your neck. You have no time to waste – and that means no Facebook scrolling, no game apps on your smart phone – just pure, dedication to your work.

In the last 8 years of building my online business, I have learned the ins and outs of what works…and what doesn’t work.

I have learned how to cultivate the proper mindset to see profits roll in on a daily basis, no matter if I am trading or building another business.

In order to help you do the same, I spent the last several days writing a 62 page Handbook to guide you through the same process so you can begin to see profits in your business as well.

Here are some of the things you will learn:

  • Balancing Your Mindset:  How To Get TOUGH On Yourself
  • How To Have Something Powerful Driving You to Balance Out Your Monetary Needs
  •  How to have to have guts to believe in yourself (when nobody else does) in order for you to make it online as a successful entrepreneur.
  • Nobody else in life is going to pump you up – so you’d better learn how to do it for
    yourself…I show you how.
  • How to shut that little voice up inside your head telling you “you can’t” and turn it into “I can!”
  • Why having more than one business or multiple streams of income also gives you financial peace of mind.
  • How to use social media sites such as Facebook effectively so people want to follow you, seek your advice and potentially buy your products or join your business.
  • Dealing with distractions when working from home
  • Why successful online entrepreneurs wear failure as a Badge of Honor & why you can too!
  • How to set boundaries for people who believe that “work at home” means “sit at home doing nothing.”
  • How to Make Your Motivation Soar Even When Faced With Obstacles

And Much more!

Many folks sell this type of insider information for anywhere from $67-$97….But I’m not going to charge you that.

Because I appreciate you and I KNOW you want to see success, you can grab your copy of it for…

Not $47…Not Even $27

For a Mere $12 you can grab this course now.

Yes…just $12 will give you instant access to all the insider tips I mentioned above, in order to help you break the barrier of struggling with your online business.

This is a 62 page -book jam packed full of value. Once payment is made you will be directed to the download link for Instant Access.

Grab a copy now... if you are serious about your business and are willing to invest in yourself in order to stop struggling to make money as an online entrepreneur.

Why Most People Cannot Keep a New Year’s Resolution

With a new year upon us, folks everywhere are making all sorts of “New Year’s Resolutions”  or “Wish Lists.”Subconsciously, we all see the new calendar and think of January 1st every year as a Fresh Start or a New Beginning.

Why can’t EVERY day be a fresh start?

It’s a well known fact that by the 15th of January…folks who haven’t made any progress with their resolutions have quit altogether.

So how do you break the cycle of broken resolutions? What’s the alternative?

Perhaps the resolutions you are choosing are “PUSHING” you….as opposed to “PULLING” you.

Let me explain.


Have you resolved to go to the gym every day, but when you think about going, you dread it and you find an excuse not to?

Have you resolved to give up sugar but whenever you see cheesecake you just have to have it?

These are examples of resolutions that are “PUSHING” you to do something. Push requires willpower and willpower never lasts.

What you need is something that will PULL you. Something that gets you so excited you cannot sleep. This is something that becomes a part of your every day practice. It’s your passion…it becomes part of your essence.

It has to be something so compelling that you know it’s going to be a gift when it happens. You also have to have strong enough reasons to continue and follow through when the going gets tough.

It becomes part of your every day focus & vision. Perhaps not as easy to accomplish, but once you gain momentum and make progress you are more likely to stick with it.

Is it to quit your job and finally have an alternative income that allows you more time freedom with your family?

Let me give you an example of what happened to me a few times.

As many of you know, I have been making a full time income online since 2009. In those first few years when I may have slacked off, money became scarce. Working from home can make you complacent, as you don’t have a boss watching over you constantly. You need to be self motivated.

The thought of going back to a “real job,” punching a clock, and having a boss analyzing my every move scared me more than anything I could ever imagine. Just the thought of waking up to an alarm clock put me into a panic. I immediately put things back into HIGH GEAR and crushed my online business.

These are the resolutions you need to be making. Make a resolution with such a clear vision it wakes you up in the middle of the night, eager for daylight so you can get right to work on whatever it is you hunger for.

So find something that PULLS you, create a vision, believe in yourself take action, see results, review it every day and I guarantee the cycle of “Broken” New Year’s Resolutions will cease to exist.

P..S. I have been receiving so many messages from folks saying “they missed” the Black Friday
discount on my courses. I have added a coupon code and reserved only 10 copies of each. If
you missed the deal, you can enter coupon code 2017 at checkout and save $30 off each
course. Remember, there only 10 of each at this discount, so they will go fast.
If I can help you with anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Cleaning Up the Negativity in Your Life


As a solo entrepreneur, you need all of the positive mindset you can get. When self doubt and negativity creeps in, it can cause you to panic and reverse course – stopping you from ever achieving your dreams.


Seeds of negativity are constantly being sewn in your life, and it’s up to you to spot and weed them out as soon as they take root. If you leave these influences to flourish, it will someday feel out of control and you won’t know how to get back to a place that’s manageable.


Eliminating Inner Negative Self Talk


Aside from all of the outside influences, which we’ll discuss in a moment, one of the biggest negative factors stems from your own mindset. You’re trashing your decisions and never giving yourself a chance to succeed.


Part of why we do this is self preservation. We want to be smart about everything. If we predict failure, and it comes true – then we’re insightful and it won’t sting as much as if we had falsely pinned our hopes on success.


You might say things like, “No one will want to listen to me in this niche – look at all the other experts out there who are much better than me!” Or you might start to make a video blog and see yourself in the camera and turn it right off, picking on yourself for being too fat, too old, or not handsome or pretty enough.


You might just lightly criticize yourself, doubting your decisions on which niche to choose or what kind of business model you want to implement. And every time something goes awry (as it does for all marketers), you beat yourself up brutally, calling yourself stupid.


Sometimes your negativity is with other people. There are thousands of people working toward online success who do nothing but blame others for their failures. Everyone “scams” them.


They tell themselves nothing works. Other marketers are liars. Basically, they’re saying these negative things because they couldn’t get it to work, so instead of shouldering the blame and working out any issues – it’s easier if they just say it’s someone else’s fault.


The first thing you have to do is be honest about how negative you are. Start to recognize if you call yourself names (or other marketers). Then correct yourself in mid-sentence.


If you say, “Ugh! I’m so stupid for not realizing that,” stop and say, “Actually, I’m learning and giving it everything I’ve got, so I’m still proud of myself for trying, even if I made an error this time.”


You have to replace the negative with the positive. You can’t just stop saying the negative – you want to put yourself on the path to success and productivity. Practice positive affirmations if you want to – but don’t copy any from the Internet. Make up your own so that your affirmation sounds like something you’d say.


Dealing with Negative Family Members


Once you get your own mind sorted out, you’ll be dealing with those closest to you. Family members can wreak havoc on your success just by being negative about your efforts – or about life in general.


It’s hard to wake up positive and motivated every day when you’re around someone who drags you down in life. It’s worse when they direct their negativity toward you. So as an entrepreneur, you’ll hear a lot of that.


You spouse might say, “You still haven’t made any money yet?” Your in-laws (or even your own parents might say, “When are you going to get a real job?” You might have aunts, uncles, and cousins who chime in to make fun of your journey if you happen to share it with them.


It hurts to not be fully supported – especially by loved ones who should be the very people cheering you on. There’s nothing that can stop that pain, but you can decide whether or not you’ll put up with it and let it affect your progress.


Keep in mind that negativity often isn’t about you. The person can be a miserable man or woman in general – always complaining about the weather, their job, the traffic, and so on.


Even these little irritations can sabotage you with work because you’re constantly trying to make them feel more positive and cheer them up. It’s very toxic being around negative people on a regular basis.


Why do your loved ones act negatively toward your dreams? Well, some of them honestly think they’re trying to help. They assume your pursuit of an online income is ridiculous (because they don’t understand it), so they try to save you from yourself.


Others are just the kind of people who aren’t happy unless someone else is the target of their misgivings. With these people, you can either limit your time with them, or learn how to deflect the criticism – and that includes keeping your entire journey to yourself.


If they ask what it is you’re doing for a job, you tell them you’re studying a new career and you’ll let them know when you make a firm decision. Or just smile coyly and let them keep wondering.


Really, it’s not anyone else’s business what you’re doing. It’s your decision. You need to take back control of what’s shared and what’s available to the public for the gossip mill. A corporation would never disclose all of their pursuits, and you don’t have to, either!


Handling Negative Friendships


Friendships are very treasured to many people – like a second family of sorts. But friends can also be casual acquaintances. Either way, you’re likely going to encounter well-meaning (or not) friends who disparage what you’re doing.


Again, it’s not always about you. Sometimes these friends are just negative, miserable people. They call you up to unload their problems on you. That’s fine, until it becomes something that puts you in a sour mindset.


Other times, what they say does have to do with you. They might tell you that it’s ridiculous to waste time with online work – that they heard it was all a scam. Again, this is simple ignorance.


Why do people who are supposed to have your back try to cripple your progress? Sometimes, like your family, they mean well – and they think they’re saving you from making a big mistake.


Other times, it’s a jealousy issue with friends. Maybe they hate their job and they wish they could do what it is you’re doing. Maybe they feel more qualified than you, and wish they had the guts to pursue an online income.


So what comes out of their mouths isn’t supportive and well-meaning. It’s a cheap shot, aimed at defeating your mindset so that you’ll get on par with everyone else and they won’t have to feel bad about their own decisions.


You have to set firm boundaries with people – whether they’re minor acquaintances or long-time friends. Let them know that you’re proud of what it is that you’re doing and if they can’t be supportive, then the issue will be off the table for further discussions.


Don’t try to explain every element on being an online entrepreneur to someone who puts it down. They won’t understand because they don’t want to. You’ll be wasting your time and end up frustrated.


Instead, set boundaries, and if they continue invading your space about the issue, make a decision about whether or not you need to have this person staying in your life any longer.


Weeding Out Your Negative Network


You may think that as long as you keep yourself and those closest to you in real life, you’ll be well on your way to a positive mindset. Unfortunately, as solo entrepreneurs, we often rely on our online support network to achieve success.


Your network can consist of customers, affiliates and joint venture partners. Everywhere you turn, you’ll be inundated with people who like to harp on what’s wrong, instead of what’s right.


Even friends you make online – who you’ve never met in person – can drain you if you let them. Take time to analyze who you’re surrounding yourself with. You want to be positioned with people who have the same positive career goals as yourself.


Check out people’s Facebook page, their Twitter and blog. Do you see a pattern of rants and whining – complaints and just the tendency to put a damper on everyone’s good mood on a regular basis?


There are people like this who just spend all day mired in what’s wrong, rather than focusing on what could be right. Sometimes, if you’re not careful, it can rub off on you and you’ll notice yourself agreeing with them.


Others will buy one shiny new object after another, and because they don’t fully implement a product or course, repeatedly fail. They won’t chalk it up to personal responsibility, though.


It will be the fault of the seller. You don’t want to attach yourself to people like this who suck the life out of every day from the moment you log online. You don’t have to be surrounded by people who are nothing but positive, either – but being one sided is never okay.


Replace all of those Negative Nellies with positive influences. You can unfollow someone on Facebook, and yet still remain their friend. They’ll never know, so no feelings will be hurt, and you’ll set yourself free from the sadness and anger they like to spew about how they feel mistreated.


You have to be especially careful when you try motivating others. Some people make it a goal to prove you wrong. So if you’re cheerful and positive, they’ll make it their mission to make you see their truth.


Others will latch onto you and, since they’re drowning in a bad attitude, use every drop of positivity you have to offer just to keep their head above water. Never-mind the fact that they’re pulling you under with them.


Make Positivity Your New Mantra


As you begin weeding out all of this negative influence – in real life and online – you have to replace it with something that will benefit you. The first thing you want to do is make positivity a way of life for you.


That means in your parenting, in your relationship, in your finances, in your fitness – everywhere. Not just business. If you try to only stay positive in your career, it will be hard to stay afloat because the rest of your world feels like it’s crumbling.


Make sure you regularly weed out the toxic influences in your life. When you stay aware of how other people affect your own mindset, you can then make a plan of action on how to handle them.


Will they simply be tuned out whenever you encounter them? Will you set boundaries and keep them at arm’s length? Or is the influence so troubling that it’s in your best interest to close the door on that interaction completely?


Aside from stopping yourself from saying negative things and replacing them with good thoughts, work on other ways to continually let go of negativity and find the silver lining in every moment.


You might make a gratitude journal and keep it until you begin automatically noticing what’s good more than you do what’s bad. Some journals have uplifting quotes or sayings in them to help you start (or end) your day on the right foot.


Put the focus of each day on helping others. When you work on being positive with other people, it helps you feel good on regular basis. Reach out to others and help them  whenever possible.


Do things that promote positive energy, like laughing. Watch comedies instead of dark horror or dramas. Turn off the news. It can be depressing and make you feel like everything’s going wrong, all of the time.


Engage in meditation, yoga, guided visual imagery or other practices that can deliver peace and calm to your day and quiet the chaos that comes from hearing everyone panicked and angry.


Cleaning up the negativity in your life will be an on-going process that doesn’t happen overnight. But once you’re able to spot people who aren’t good for you, you’ll begin to see that you achieve more and enjoy your career more than ever before.

Tips To Achieve Better Results In Your Business

              Happy New Year!
I hope you are looking forward to an exciting & prosperous 2017 as much as I am. Each year brings new challenges, but it also brings along new opportunities if we are open to seeing them. Many people focus too much on “can I do this?”…as opposed to “I CAN DO THIS.”
I teach folks every day and the one thing I notice between the folks that succeed, and those that fail…is mental attitude.
If you think your life stinks, it probably does. If you think the world is out to get you, it probably is. If you think you deserve more, you probably do.
See, most people blame the world for their failures. We live in a new generation of “entitlement.” Would you agree?
Look around you. Do you see kids working 3 jobs to have “pocket money” like the older generations did…or do you see them playing video games looking for a handout?
I think you get my point.
The same goes with building any type of online business, or for anything else.
There’s no way to sugar coat it. You may be your own worst enemy. You are the only one who is standing in the way of your goals and your success.
If you want something you have to work hard for it. Not a half effort either, I mean you need to really work your butt off!
You need to make sacrifices and push through even when things get messy and complicated. You need to keep going when everything in you is telling you to give up because that’s the only way you’ll ever amount to anything great.
It’s understandable that some folks will lose their positive attitude because of negative events. RISE ABOVE.
What happens to us isn’t always our fault…but we can control how we react.
I failed many, many times before I saw success. The difference was my mindset. Ask anyone who has ever struggled with anything in life how they got through it.
“Was it sitting on the couch and wallowing in self pity?”
I doubt it. They brushed themselves off, took another look, tried again and succeeded.
I’m sharing this with you from experience…my life wasn’t always a bowl of cherries. It still isn’t. I have to work on myself ever day.
Once I stopped blaming other people for my bad fortune… my life took a huge turn for the better.
I remember back in 2009 when I was struggling online, my mentor Ray Higdon told me…”Anne, you need to work harder on yourself than you do on your business.”
Nobody had ever cared enough to tell me the truth. It was a “hard truth” but it worked. I was ashamed of how I had let my poor attitude suck my bank account dry.
So, I really hope 2017 is a tremendous year for you. If there is anything I can do to help, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
Also, today is the absolute last day to get any of My Courses at the 60% discount. (only $37). They have been on sale since Black Friday and at Midnight tonight they all go back to the regular price. ($97)
One of the courses is Mindset Mastery which may just be the ticket you need to help change the course of your business. I’ll leave it up to you to decide.

How To Achieve Your Greatest Desire In 2017

With the New Year Just a few days away, people everywhere are thinking of changes or resolutions they want to make their lives better in 2017.

As the year comes to a close, I wanted to share a personal story with you, in the hopes that it may help you achieve your greatest desire in 2017.

FIRST, You need to understand and identify your Core Desire.

What is a core desire?

Core Desires are those things you want with all your heart. They are deep, intense, and powerful longings. They are persistent, ever- demanding, heartfelt hungers or yearnings that pierce you to the very core. One easy way to identify them is that they are always tied to a very strong emotion in your heart.

In 2006 I discovered my core desire in the simplest way possible. I simply looked in the mirror one day and it was staring me in the face.

It’s called…Pain.

Pain that is so great you are willing to do or sacrifice anything that will alleviate the agony. Although I had a good career as a medical professional, there was an intense and painful burning in my soul when I got up every morning to go to work.

I wanted more for myself. There was something missing. I wanted to be able to make a difference, to be free of the frustration that came with punching a time clock.

August 1st, 2006 I took a leap of faith and walked away from my 18 career without a plan. I was finally free and my heart was happy again. That was a very good day.

I was reconnected with one of my dearest High School friends shortly after. As we enjoyed each others company over a 3 hour lunch, she asked me a question that took me back to a place that psychologically, I have avoided to revisit.

She said “Anne, what made you decide to leave your career at the hospital and start your own business?”

Truth be told, I left for countless reasons. If I were asked to pin down the deciding factor, it would be that I didn’t like the person I had allowed myself to become. I couldn’t stand to look at myself in the mirror every day, knowing I had permitted myself to get to such a point.

Along with the tremendous support of my family, and a very special person who entered my life at that tumultuous time, I gained the courage to leave my job, and make the necessary changes, which commenced the amazing journey of taking me to the place I am today. I had people who believed in me…even when I didn’t believe in myself.

“What you get by reaching your goals, is not nearly as important as the person you become by reaching them.” ~ Zig Ziglar

But…this post is not about me…it’s about you. It’s about helping you determine if what you aspire for yourself and for your future, supersedes any obstacles you will encounter on your journey.

First you must ask yourself these 5 simple words…”What Is My Core Desire?”

Is it to Retire at an early age?

Maybe you want to see all that our beautiful World has to offer…

Perhaps you’re waiting for the day you can “Fire Your Boss.”

Is it that you never again, want to be revolted by the person looking back at you in the mirror every day?

Whatever your Core desire is, it will be your #1 reason to succeed. Your Core desire will be the reason you fly out of bed in the morning, not wanting to waste another minute of a brand new day. Your daily decisions will be based on your Core desire. Your Core desire will consume every part of who you are, and what you become.

I took many chances and sacrificed more things than I allow myself to admit. I traveled, or I didn’t travel, I dated or I didn’t date…based on my Core desire. I made decisions such as selling personal possessions in order to invest in myself, with things such as self-education, and books on personal growth. I discarded lifelong friendships whose only contribution to my life at that point had been a daily dose of their negative energy. My Core desire dominated my life with a sense of urgency. My focus and energy became so intense, it dominated my every thought and my every action.

My Core desire won out over everything else…and made the difference between success and failure.

So if you have any doubts and are still wondering if you have what it takes to reach your Core desire, just ask yourself if you are willing to sacrifice, or not to sacrifice, to change, or not to change those stable, cozy and comfortable aspects of your everyday life.

And if you need someone to believe in you, I believe in you…

There isn’t any doubt, that each and every one of us possesses a Core desire. The doubt lies in whether we are willing to change our lives and ourselves… to attain them.

You are a unique and amazing person my friend. You are blessed with many talents and gifts to share with the world.

My wish for you is to be that person – The World is waiting for your greatness. 🙂

Blessings & Abundance,

Anne Theriault
