How to Change Careers: From nurse to online entrepreneur, an interview with Cordelia Kate
My friend Cordelia Kate is one of the most impressive people I've met in a long time. Divorce left her life in turmoil and after picking up the pieces, she realized that she didn't want to trade her time for money any more. She wanted to always be available for her kids and started her online business by importing items from China and reselling them.
She didn't love it and lost money. She went back to the drawing board and knew that she no longer wanted to have inventory or import or ship anything. She explored website design, but it was too complicated and then she came across the SFM and changed her life.
Cordelia talks about how the SFM's step-by-step system allowed her to completely transform her life. She quit her nursing job after only 7 months of training! The support she's received from the community has made a massive difference. Like me, she tried it on her own and failed. You might recall that I failed as an Amazon affiliate, drop-shipper, eCommerce store and gave up on an MLM because they wanted me to solicit friends and family and wouldn't allow me to market their products online.
She's discovered her purpose: to lovingly give others the freedom to safely be themselves, so that they have the strength to explore life's journey being rich with joy! Pretty good stuff.
Cordelia says that saying the change and growth of people who come into our online community has completely replaced the fulfillment she found while nursing.
She goes on to say that she's still getting used to the freedom because she's used to working 13-hour shifts.
The lesson she'd like to share is not to compare yourself to others and to come into entrepreneurship open-minded and with a timeline that has nothing to do with what anyone else has done. Comparison can be a killer.
I hope our conversation gives you hope and allows you to know that there's a realistic way for you to go into business for yourself. You can build your online business in your spare time and then eventually quit your job, just like Cordelia did.
Until next time, please be well.

Meet Stuart Ross, SFM Co-Founder and Your Guide

To date, I’ve created a multi-million dollar lifestyle business in the education and technology industry that I absolutely LOVE. My driving passion is sharing the know-how and mindset that lets others feel the same way.

Four Principles To Create Your Best Life
PRINCIPLE #1 KNOW YOUR VISION
Stuart talks about vision moments. My 'vision' moment happened while on vacation with my kids. I realized that we'd made very few memories as a family, because of health issues that have prevented me from doing much travel, and because my career has me working weekends.
My girls screamed with delight, as they touched snow for the very first time and like a light switch, I instantly realized that no job was worth missing my kids' childhood and making quality memories together. That's the vision that keeps me motivated. I'm putting the effort in now, so I have free time and extra money to make memories with my wife and kids for many years to come.
PRINCIPLE #2 INVEST IN YOURSELF
"Every day I make sure that in some capacity, I'm investing in myself. Unlike school, as a self-learner, you get to choose the areas you're enthusiastic about and you get to choose the people that you're learning from."
The most important investment I've ever made has been in me and my education, not a 401k. The SFM will show you how to use the internet as a tool to support yourself from any location. The return on your investment is the ability to earn income, no matter what the economy is doing. Unlike traditional education, you'll have passion for what you're learning!
PRINCIPLE #3 DO THE WORK
Find someone who has what you want and do what they did! I live by this principle in every aspect of my life. Find someone who’s willing to teach, who's been there and done what you'e looking to do, and follow their lead.
My top goal is lifestyle freedom and knowing that the internet makes that possible, I tried to build several online businesses early on, without a guide, and failed. Then I found the SFM. Their experience and coaching allowed me to avoid expensive mistakes and succeed the second time around. They've made me into a successful online entrepreneur!
PRINCIPLE #4 KNOW YOUR VALUES
If you don't know your values, then it's time to uncover and illuminate them. Then, everything else you do will be aligned with your values.
One of my main values is family. I decided to make a change and learn the skills necessary to be self-employed online, so that I'm always available to make memories with my wife and kids.
God, integrity, loyalty, having fun, and passion are a few other values I hold dear. What values drive your daily actions?
