Watch how a retired school teacher who had a fear of flying is now running her own online business while she travels the world
Deborah Robertson is a retired school teacher and school system administrator from Covington, Georgia who now is running her own home based online business.
“If anyone had told me two years ago that I would have my own internet marketing business, that I would travel the world, and that I would actually have a professional film maker following me around shooting video, I would never have stopped laughing.” says Deborah.
Deborah loved her work for the most part until a few years ago when getting up in the morning was becoming a struggle. She had enough money to retire but wasn’t at full retirement age yet so she decided to go for it and submit her retirement notice.
“That was the best feeling in the world. It was like a burden had been lifted off my shoulders. But now with a fixed income, I had another problem. I like my current lifestyle, so I didn’t want that to change. And I also have seven grandchildren. So that meant with extra time on my hands, I wanted to make some amazing memories with them. I wanted to take them places and I wanted to do things with them but I knew that was going to take more money. I had to find another way to make some money.” says Deborah.
She wanted a home business but was not keen on businesses that operated on home parties and networking. She wanted something she can do from her computer so she started searching but ran into a lot of “get rich schemes” that promised a few clicks of the button and overnight riches.
Then she came across a video by Matt Lloyd, CEO and founder of MOBE.
Here is how Deborah relates the story…
“He was standing on stage and he was talking about the internet marketing business. And he said, to start your own internet marketing business takes hard work and takes time. He was talking about the numbers. He was talking about your return on your investment. He’d been to the university and he was going to be a finance major there so I knew he knew a lot about business.
And then he started telling his story about how he struggled four years before he was really able to figure out how this internet marketing worked. And because of that, he developed a system for people to be able to get in to internet marketing, who really were serious about it and wanted to earn a replacement income or just another second revenue stream. And that is exactly what I was looking for.
And his name was Matt Lloyd and his system is MOBE.
But you know, I still had doubts on whether or not, I could really do this business. After all, I’m a former teacher. What do we know about the internet marketing industry?
Then I continued to look into what MOBE and what Matt had. And I discovered that Matt had put in some safety nets for anybody especially people like me to get started into this industry. And these are the safety nets:
- You have a step-by-step system to follow. You know what, as a teacher, I understand giving people small bits of information really is helpful. It will cut their learning curve.
- He has a phone team that works for you. The phone team makes sales for you. If you’ve never made any sales like me, you don’t have to worry about that.
- You get a coach to help guide you through it. If you get stuck, you got a coach there to help you.
- And the fourth thing, Matt understands that you can’t make six figures making $25 and $100 in commissions, you’ve got to make $1000, $3000 and $5000 in commission if you really want to get six figures.
That was all I needed to know. I couldn’t sign up fast enough. In fact, my first month, I did exactly what the coach has told me to do and I made $2000 in commissions. Hey, I was pumped from there and I knew that I could do this business.
As I look back on my first year of my internet marketing business, I have amazed myself at what I have learned, what I can do, and what I have made.
Part of my success has come from the MOBE community. I find that the people there are so helpful and they’re so caring. They will really do what you need to do to get your success started. You can ask them any questions. And I met them all online but I really wanted to meet them in person and the only way I was going to do that was get to a live event.”
Despite of her fear of flying, Deborah got on a plane and went to her first Mastermind in Costa Rica. Now she has traveled to several other locations in the US, Mexico and Costa Rica.
“Don’t let fear get in your way.” says Deborah. “Don’t over think it. Just do it. Take action… I can’t believe what I’ve learned. I can’t believe what I can do. And I can’t believe how MOBE has changed my life.”
It took Deborah a bit of time to pick further momentum, but in the last 2 years she has earned over $70,000 online, something very few retirees can say they did.
Her story was very inspiration to me and she was one of the reasons I decided to give MOBE a second look myself.
If you are currently approaching retirement or looking for ways to supplement your current income, you need to start looking at multiple sources of income and tapping into the online licensing model.
