Watch how an engineer who got laid off from her full-time job turned her life around and started a successful online business
Chances are you or someone you know has been laid off from their full-time corporate job.
This occurrence is becoming very common and can cause a lot of stress if you don’t have a plan B. Whether you are looking for work, or worried about losing your current job, always look for ways to diversify your income stream and start an online business on the side.
When done right you will find that an online business can be much more lucrative than going back to a full time job.
In this case study we will look at Adeline Sugianto, a mother and former engineer from Sydney Australia. Like many on the job market today, she lost her job and had to look for other sources of income.
As of September 2015, Adeline has earned over $207,635.60, mostly done in the last 12 months using the MOBE system.
Having the time off allowed Adeline to focus totally on educating herself on the options and then implementing what she learned. Her quick results are a testimony to the power of using existing systems and investing in education and joining communities that provided support and mentorship.
Adeline is using the four main online income models I reference in my book “Design Your Income Online”:
- Selling your services: either as a consultant of coach
- Selling products: either physical or digital products
- Affiliate Marketing: Getting commissions by referring your clients to other people’s products and services
- Licensing: Leveraging other people’s existing systems and business models
As a newbie to the online business world Adeline focused first on the leveraged system where MOBE does all the heavy lifting, and now taps into additional sources of income like affiliate marketing, having her own products and also selling her services as a business coach.
This is a great example for newbies who are just starting out. Many newbies lose focus and start by creating and selling products and end up losing a lot of time and money before they see results.
Below is Adeline’s story in her own words…
My name is Adeline Sugianto from Sydney, Australia. I used to work as an engineer in a renewable energy company. I earn comfortable living and I love my job. Things were going great, until one day, the company that I worked for was not doing very well. And like everybody else, I lost my job.
To be honest, I felt weird and frustrated having to go from something to nothing a month. But, looking at the bright side, I took it as a wake up call where I realized how important it is nowadays to have multiple income streams.
And not only just to earn extra money to pay for stuff, to buy more stuff or to fulfill your needs but also as income protection–an insurance policy. What will happen if tomorrow you lose your job? As the saying goes, never put your eggs all into one basket.
One day, I was reading a book and it talked about internet marketing as one of the ways to make money, to create an income stream. I decided to check out what it is all about. And, it just resonates with me. I mean, I love freedom–freedom from time, space and money. Living the internet lifestyle has given me the chance to travel all around the world. Meet some of the most amazing people. And be able to work, whenever I want and wherever I want. All I need is just a laptop and an internet connection.
I found MOBE from one of the top online marketers. What attracted me to MOBE is that they do most of the heavy lifting for you and this is really important. Because when you’ve just first started, you just really want to focus on one thing. One thing and just master it while you leverage a high converting sales funnel and their expertise to close the sales for you and start making money right away.
I was also attracted to the one-on-one coaching because I believe, in order to succeed in anything, especially in this industry; you need a coach that can step up your learning curve. I also love the community because it’s not just another group of people; it’s like a big family. Where we can learn and support each other. And also, Matt Lloyd, the founder, I’ve never seen anyone who really cares about their partners and genuinely want them to succeed. He and his team are always innovating and improving the system for us to make money as easy as possible. And also, for his company MOBE to exist the long term.
With this system, I’ve made $2,000 in a single day without having to close the sales myself. And now, I’m at the beautiful 5 start resort in Costa Rica, masterminding with 7 and 8 figure earners to take my business to the next level.
In my short term with MOBE, I’ve already tasted some success. But more so, I got to feel freedom.
After two years and her MOBE business has already generated over $300,000 in commissions.
Using her MOBE training, Adeline was also able to start her own ecommerce business that has generated over $151,700 in gross sales in the last month alone.
Congratulations Adeline! What a great success story!
