“You, guru.” That is the catch phrase that caught my eye while reading April’s issue of SUCCESS Magazine. See, there was an ad for a book called “The Millionaire Messenger” by Brendon Burchard, which I ordered as soon as I saw it, and it just arrived in the mail yesterday. While I’ve never wanted to be a “so called” Internet marketing guru, I am eager to start reading this book, because it is not about being some “high and mighty” elite internet marketer or anything like that. Rather, it teaches you how to share your experiences with other people, share your advice with others and make a difference in other people’s lives. (…and making money from doing it! Heh, how neat is that?!) That’s pretty exciting stuff, because I love helping people! Funny thing is, the word “guru” kind of turns me “off” a little, because I see that word tossed around a lot online. It’s kinda like, “I’m an ‘internet marketing guru‘ with “company ‘X'” and I make a bajillion dollars a month“. Yeah…right…
Me?? An Internet Marketing Guru?!
So, this interesting thing happened to me last night — and I haven’t even read the book yet so it surprised me! I was speaking on the phone to a great friend of mine who is on our team of Beachbody Coaches, His name is Jerry Luis Arichabala, and he joined my organization in November, 2011. He is a VERY successful network marketer — and in fact, he is someone I admire very much in this industry and I am thankful that he decided to join my network marketing team in Team Beachbody. So when he said last night that I was an “internet marketing guru” during our conversation on the phone with me, it made me feel very honored.
You see, not long ago, my page ranking for “Earn Money with Beachbody” ranked on the FIRST PAGE of Google for that term! How cool is that? I didn’t pay anyone an expensive fee to do it for me, but rather I myself learned how to do it (and yes, it cost me money to learn how to do this stuff and it cost time to implement it, but obviously it pays off!). This is exactly the kind of stuff I am eager to share with my entire team of Independent Team Beachbody Coaches. So, for instance, if someone who is eager for success as a network marketer/Team Beachbody Coach decided to become a Beachbody Coach with our team of Beachbody Coaches, I will teach them my essential Beachbody Coach training so that they can build their businesses into a powerhouse on the Internet! See, in network marketing, what you do in the business benefits everyone on the team! That is the awesome power of network marketing, and I teach these strategies to anyone who is willing to actually put them into action, as long as they join my organization. And it earned me the respect of someone who I respect…Jerry said that I “earned a point in his book as an Internet marketing guru“. I don’t think of myself as one, but hey, if I can implement this stuff, anyone can, because I’ll tell you straight up that I was not the brightest kid growing up. I was a “C” student in high school, and student who was semi-above average in college. But anyone with drive, determination and the right training and action steps can reach an Internet marketing guru status too!
