Yes, it’s that time of year again, a time to share with family and friends the joy we celebrate at Christmas time with our friends and loved ones.
My family has just returned from the children’s Christmas mass at our local church in Bowral, where we spent just over an hour being thank full for what we have in our lives and each other. We have cracked a bottle of bubbly and we are watching the Christmas carols at the Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne, Australia…… a tradition we have done for as long as I can remember.
This past year has been full of many emotions for me …. starting off the year with the end of my relationship of 2 years which was the worst part of the year and it was only January! I thought to myself, it can only get better, which of course it did. With unhappy endings comes many new beginnings and wonderful events, some good, some not so good…. the meeting of some wonderful new people including the formation of my new team.
With the formation of my new team came some new friendships, including life coach, Shirley Kerkow, who most of my readers would know by the name “The Inspirational Success Coach“. Shirley although a professional in her own field came to me wanting to know how to market her Life Coaching business online. In a few short months Shirley is now on page one of Google for her keywords Inspirational Success Coach. It’s been a pleasure to work with Shirley over the past 3 months and assist her in reaching her goals, plus she has also become a wonderful new friend.
I watched my friend and business associated Mavis Nong of Attraction Marketing Online.com produce her first product, Underground Blogging Secrets…. and what a product it is! Not only has her latest product helped an abundance of Internet Marketers reach their blogging goals it has also help a monumental amount of affiliate marketers make a rather large income. Well done Mavis!
June this year was the beginning of my new marketing business, where I assist individuals and businesses on and offline reach their full potential and target their primary audience by placing them on page one of the search engines, via on page and off page SEO and content marketing. I also had my bleep bleep birthday in June…. the older I get the wiser I become…. 🙂
August saw me leave my primary company after 2 years…… I have to say this was one of the hardest decisions to date in my online career. When you align yourself with the best in the business and your on the ride of your life there comes a time when you know you should move forward. Although it was one of the hardest decisions, it was also one of the best decisions that moved me onto bigger and more profitable ventures.
November I attended the “Release Your Inner Rock Star” Conference hosted by two of the coolest guys in the International Speaking Industry, Jeff Slaytor and Kane Minkus…. what a blast… I finally met my online buddy Peter Montgomery and also met the world famous Corporate Ninja, Ron Lee. What am amazing conference where I once again met some awesome new friends and gained a useful amount of knowledge to add to my internet marketing tool box.
December……. what an awesome end to the year! I entered the Top 50 MLM Blogs Contest run by thatmlmbeat.com where I finished in 14th place with a spot in the top 50 mlm blogs… What actually made me the most proud was that 2 of my colleagues Mavis Nong and Easther Sudharta also made it to the top 50 and Easther managed a place after a life saving kidney transplant. I was so humbled to be a part of these amazing top bloggers and leaders in the Internet Marketing arena.
Also in December, my youngest son had his last year in primary school and will also have a new beginning on the 1st of February, 2012 when he starts High School.
As you can see I have had a wonderful year surrounded by some amazing leaders in my industry while having the support of my family and friends. The Internet Marketing industry is a tough niche to compete in, however well worth the ride to the top.
I want to thank all my readers and supporters for the abundant support throughout the past year. If it were not for you….. I certainly would not be where I am today and I am truly humbled. Thank You!
While your here tell me about your highs and lows of the past year and most importantly I wish you all a very Merry Christmas from my family to you family.
