STORIES COMING YOUR WAY DURING OCTOBER
This 31 Day Blog Challenge is excellent timing for me. It fits in with my early plans for my RETIREMENT PROJECT. Shouted out loud with huge letters because it is EXCITING for me and hopefully for you.
Who wants to come along for the ride? Well …. let me not get ahead of myself.
The last six months I have been setting up a membership area for my new ‘Wats-On My Mind’ project. Work, work and more work.
Now the promotion of the membership area begins and it is for a NEW audience(s) – so all of the social media work begins.
First of all I want to tell you story after story about why I am setting up this is setting about a retirement project being 70, years old.
I am 71 years this month – which must seem a strange time to start something new, – BUT of course just wait for the story …
In fact many of my life decisions have been weird – but fantastic stories…
Any regrets? – NO.
Made awful mistakes at times – but what a way to learn.
The strange thing for me writing a blog is actually wanting to say too much at once. As I am writing this – I am pulling back from stories today as I am trying to set out a structure and putting a plan in place.
So here it is – below is a basic plan of the areas I will cover if you follow my blog this month.
HEALTH – MENTAL AND PHYSICAL.
Health has has been my life. I trained as a nurse when I was 21. You will get background to how I moved from being a electronics engineer – through a temporary job and on to a starting out in a job that was predominantly women in those days. I loved being in a set of nursing recruits – 48 women and me and one other guy – hey the joy. Stories… well carefully selected stories
A confession though – I still admit that I never really learned how women think – even with that constant exposure. Men are from Mars, Women from Venus. Stories …
When I retired from nursing in 1996 – I set up a web design company. One of my clients was a guy called Adam Eason who is a hypnotherapist. Together we developed audio and video products, books and a training school. What a fabulous subject hypnosis is – BUT very often totally misunderstood. The shame is that so few people understand the power of the mind. There is total ignorance about the subject – Stories …
In fact, there are many stories about my introduction and growth on the internet. For eight years I was out in the Muscat, Oman helping to commission a new hospital. It was a University Hospital and while I was there I first came across the www – very basic but infancy of something very important.
I put up my first website about antiques in 1994. and been involved with 2500 websites since. Can you even imagine the changes over those years. Putting up my first website with a very slow modem over phones from the Middle East is the first of my Internet Stories…
PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET
Anyone wishing to run any sort of internet business needs help. It is impossible to know it all. Just keeping up with new developments is a full time job – without earning a penny. During the month I will introduce you to some of my mentors and professional experts. You will never get a recommendation from me about anyone suspect. There may be the odd affiliate link – but again that will be explained and I will have always used the service or know the person that I am recommending.
I will introduce you to some of my online mentors and friends.
I will introduce you to people that are mustard.
Let me give you an example – Paul Taubman
Paul is the man to turn to for WordPress Security. I came across Paul and this challenge through a marketing membership – so more about Paul, David and Jen and others another day – via stories.
MY RETIREMENT PROJECT – FROM PRODUCTS TO STREAMING MEMBERSHIP SERVICE
This is a time in life when I can really do what I want to do and not worry so much about the financial income, although income will be fine. But it’s more about doing something that is enjoyable and worthwhile.
The reason that I called my Blog ‘Wats-on My Mind’ is to introduce and educate as many as possible about controlling what goes on inside our heads. As a nurse I realised that people with positive approach to their illness or surgery responded so much better than those that worried and were anxious. My work with Adam reinforced that point.
I am not a hypnotherapist or Cognitive Behavioural Therapist – BUT I have recorded hours of videos and audios and have indeed used hypnosis sessions for my own personal issues. More stories…
OK – SO WHY THE STORIES THIS MONTH
My Secret Tip For Today.
If you have read yesterday’s blog you will see that I listen to podcasts every morning as I take my exercise walk.
This morning I listened to the 100th podcast recorded by a guy called Brandon Gaille. I have listened to them all and what an education – all for free. I feel I really know him though and that is the key point.
Here is a paragraph from his home page. In fact this below is an introduction to many stories that punctuate his podcast.
Here is Brandon’s website – https://theblogmillionaire.com/
FROM BRAIN TUMOR TO 1 MILLION
After a brain tumor left him physically and mentally disabled, Brandon overcame the odds to regain his health so that he could help his pregnant wife beat breast cancer. Three years later he launched his blog, BrandonGaille.com. Within four months, his blog had surpassed 100,000 monthly visitors. Less than two years after his first post, there were over 1 million business owners reading Brandon’s blog every month.
The thing is that the stories improve the relationship. I know and respect Brandon – and I have never met him.
MY SECRET EXPOSED
If you have found your way to the bottom of this Introduction my blogging challenge month then you may be somebody I am looking for.
I am looking for affiliates for my evergreen hypnosis membership website. Affiliates care who they work with – rightly.
The most important issue for me is that anyone working with me – can understand me – trust me – know how I click and so on.
The stories I will tell you during October will help you get to know me – warts and all. I will also have to add some video as well. For you to comment and make contact – you will make my day.
Some personal stuff coming your way.
See you tomorrow.
