I bet you’re thinking that I got this backwards, that it should be ‘when the student is ready, the teacher appears’ – but that’s not what I am talking about here. You see, I used to be a classroom teacher and taught all the way from Kindergarten through 12th grade for most of a 20 year period. When I left that world and came online, it wasn’t long before I missed having students that I was accountable to for their learning experience.
For the first eighteen months after I left my old life behind – I was also a real estate broker and residential appraiser – I was a student of online marketing. I was simply amazed at how much I did not know about getting started with an Internet business. I spent eight hours each day trying to soak up as much information as possible. It took me a year to finally understand how I could create a business out of what I was doing on the Internet. As soon as I started making money I made a promise to myself. This was that I would teach others how to build an online business in less time than it took me, helping them to sidestep the mistakes and pitfalls that I had encountered.
And then it happened; people began asking me to teach them how to make money online. The teacher was now ready, and the students soon appeared. My life now is more rewarding than at any other point in my life. I’m a teacher again, and now I have enough time and money to enjoy it to its fullest.
