First Blog Post Of 2017- Where Have I been?!

Hello!

This is my first blog post of the year and January is nearly over! I made a pact with myself in the summer of 2016 that I would write 2 blog post’s per week WITHOUT FAIL!

Last year was amazing! I started out in March on my online journey and things went pretty smooth, a few ups and downs, but mainly all good! I was prepared to do whatever it took to be able to stay at home with my baby girl and replace my part time income for when my maternity leave ended… And I did it!

Things were great. I started building an email list, a following on social media and became a bit of a recruiting star! :) I started to believe in myself, even to the point of feeling LIMITLESS at what I could achieve! I was close to 500 team members in my entire downline of my MLM. I started branching out in other things after replacing my income in time for maternity leave ending in July 2016. I believe every online entrepreneur needs multiple income streams.

People were coming to me, complete strangers, wanting to know what I was doing, how they could join me, how I could help them etc etc. It was such a great feeling. I had climbed up the ranks so fast and just wanted to take whoever I could with me. I felt AMAZING! FULFILLED!

And Then…

WOOSH! The rug was pulled from beneath my feet. My whole world came crashing down. :(

The MLM I had put all my energy into, all my focus, all my hopes, my dreams, my future, my time at home with my baby NOW… Turned out to be a SCAM!

That company was called Click Intensity and is now operating under the name of COIINN CRYPTO. I and many others have been blocked and had our money STOLEN. If you are ever approached by anyone promoting either of these opportunities then you need to RUN IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION! In fact, do your due diligence with ANY opportunity you are shown. Research the owners, check out reviews etc etc… Google tells you a lot.

This isn’t the first time I’ve fallen for a scam but this one was different. It was working. It was exciting. They had big plans for the future and had a lovely lady called Tara Mish as the face of the company, the ‘Head of Communications’.

She gave us daily tips, inspiration and motivation and treat us all like family. She finally came out and did a Facebook Live video to explain that she didn’t know what was happening and confessed that she had never met or spoken to the phantom owner ‘Nick Johnson’. This was when I realised I had been conned and my dreams were shattered into a million pieces :(

I stopped blogging. I stopped doing my Facebook Live’s. I stopped posting to my Online Marketing Tips group. I stopped believing. I laid down and stayed there…

I’ve always been so positive and resilient, ALWAYS! But this was different. I couldn’t figure out how I could possibly keep going, if I could turn this around or start again from scratch. A daunting thought after all the hard work and hours I had put into building this business…

We really needed the income and FAST! Otherwise I’d have to go back to work and leave my baby with someone else, a thought that truly devastates me.

After a week or 2 of doing absolutely nothing, I decided to get back into the matched betting. I knew it worked but I was only expecting £50 here and there but something had to give. I knew I didn’t want to give up in my online ventures but couldn’t find a way out, or back in maybe I should say?! Luckily I have multiple income streams but, like with anything online, they take time to build and we needed money NOW!

Getting back into matched betting was the best decision I’ve made. It’s earning me a regular income and even MORE than Click Intensity ever did! I decided to set up a group on Facebook to help others get started too. My friend Lisa had already had her own group to support new matched bettors and it was going well so why not?! :)

Now that I’m earning regular again and helping others again, I feel ready to get back into my online adventure. The only difference is, I’m really going for that time freedom now. Having NOTHING really made me realise just how important family is, how valuable my time is. Maybe this was all just the universe teaching me a lesson?

All work and no play is not good. It’s slow, steady and consistent for me now. I still have my dreams, I still want financial freedom, to travel, to not have to worry about bills and the hoover packing in (flippin’ thing!) but time freedom is my big goal and what I have right now (family) is my priority.

I was all about work before and getting to the top as fast as possible. I climbed fast but fell a lot harder and faster! And it hurt!

It’s taken me a lot of time to get over what’s happened but at least with everything I have learnt about marketing, branding, prospecting, recruiting etc, I don’t have to start COMPLETELY from scratch! :)

Onwards and upwards!

Love to all,

Kirsty
