So, now that you know you need to define your why, let’s get to the next part of this lesson.
As seniors, we have a lot of life experience as well as corporate work world experience locked inside our heads. That means there is a lot of information in our memory banks that will help other people and information that people will gladly pay for each month.
There Is A Market For Your Experience
What most of us, as seniors, do not realize is there is a market for most, if not all of that experience. All we have to do is bring it out of our memory banks and put it out in the public.
Keeping that in mind let’s dig into all that information you have stored between your ears so you can find something that can be used as your first product/step to becoming an online entrepreneur.
Your first assignment may require some help from someone you are willing to receive advice from. I say willing to receive advice from because most of the people in our generation do not see any value in what they know, at least not any income generating value. If you will sit and talk to someone you can receive advice from and share your corporate world experiences as well as your life experiences and passions with, they will hear things that have real-world value to them. You will just have to trust their opinions and not your own thoughts, doubts and fears in order to get started.
I believe the biggest problem most of us face is fear and I believe I may have been introduced to some information today as I was putting all of this down in a way, I could make it available to you that may be of help in that area. You see most of us, our generation, were taught we needed to go to school, get a job, work hard, for someone else, take care of our families and build a retirement, so we could enjoy our golden years.
Change Your Learned Mindset
Our generation was not taught to think outside the box and look for a better way. We were not taught, by anyone, how to think like an entrepreneur. The Seniors generation was taught to trade our time for a paycheck and now that no one, in Corporate America wants our time we have no idea how to earn an income, even a small income to help make sure there is money left over at the end of the month instead of month being left over at the end of the money.
Everything we have been taught, from childhood, is what keeps us from having the right mindset. We need to change that mindset and that is one of the things we want to help you do, starting with the next lesson.
Let’s take a quick look at today’s lesson.
You need to find or redefine your why. Maybe you have had a why in the past and you need to tweak it a little or maybe you need a new why. Either way, you need to make sure you have a clear vision of what your why is.
You need to take a look inside your memory banks and find the information you can use to launch your online business.
