3 Entrepreneurs Evolving Online

Am I the only one who has changed what I do online? Nope. Here are 3 people I can think of right off the bat.
When I started online, Nicole was the affiliate manager for Jimmy D. Brown. From where I sat, she was a whiz at getting things done and an outsourcing master. She was also in the WAHM or mom niche. She didn’t stay put in those arenas though, she eventually moved on from being Jimmy’s right-hand gal and away from the mom niche and ramped up her EasyPLR store among other things.
Now she and Melissa Ingold have this amazingly successful content for coaches business called CoachGlue. Nicole does a very good job at spotting needs and providing solutions. I like that.
I’ve know Alan for quite a while and we’ve partnered on a few products in the past. He’s a solutions guy, and much more techy than me. He has never been afraid to try out new tools and software and was successful as an affiliate marketer for his niche sites and in the IM market. BUT… he’s only got a toe in IM now because he’s following his passion as a fiction writer. I’ve had the pleasure of reading his first book and I’m eagerly awaiting the next 2 in the series.
How wonderful is that? Internet marketing had lost some of it’s appeal and he decided it was time to go after what he wanted offline – writing novels. And because of his online marketing background, he’s able to market the heck out of his books. What we do before always has a say in how successful we are now. It all comes together, doesn’t it?
Lisa has had a PLR store for quite some time now. The earliest memories I have of her are watching how much she got done while she was 8 and 9 months pregnant with her last child. Wow, she was laser focused and knocked out content right and left. Then while she was doing that, she learned all the ins and outs of social media and teaching others. one day her husband decides to market his soy candles and they opened an online store. Next time I turn around they’ve got a physical store and they’re also renting out space to other artisans. They’ve created a full artisan market.
But I think Lisa has really found her calling with her newest venture – the Secrets To Her Success podcast series. It amazes me how far she’s come from where she’s started.
Is there a point to me sharing these stories?
Right livelihood. I think it has to do with saying okay to yourself if you want to change what you’re doing. I’m not talking about chasing shiny objects and running off in a different direction every time something promising comes out.
I am talking about finding something that makes you want to get out of bed in the morning, something you’re really jazzed about. Sometimes we try to force things to work even if it’s not really a good fit, and other times what used to fulfill us work-wise no longer sustains us.
No apologies. Redefine your passions. Go in the direction of helping others and making them happy while creating an income from that. Alan entertains a lot of people with his writing. Lisa inspires people with her interviews. Nicole helps people get ahead.
How about you? How have you evolved? Where are you heading now?
