As a former financial planner, I've always been interested in the effects of compounding and how small but consistent actions can really add up over time. My friend, Dan had a successful career in software sales, but got sick of the corporate hierarchy and rat race, so after finding the SFM he quit his job to work for himself online.
Why bust your ass selling for someone else's business and building someone else's dreams, when you can build your own? He is someone I look up to and his inspiring story is one that can help you.
Dan's first talk ever on stage as a newbie-entrepreneur is below. Take the time to watch the other videos to see how far he went in such a short amount of time because of the SFM's training, so you know what's possible for you!
Dan quickly became one of the newer all stars in the SFM community, so he was asked to chat with the convention after being given an award and then he decided to film a quick video addressing those who think this online way of life is too good to be true.
With only 2.5 months worth of living expenses left to his name he was very afraid and experienced unbelievable amounts of stress. After processing the negative emotion he decided that his mindset was going to be the key to succeeding online. As I'm sure you can understand, he didn't want to go crawling back to his former employer, asking for a job.
Dan shares the steps that he took in order to change his mindset from one of fear to one of hopeful expectation and knowing that he is part of something bigger, the natural flow of life and an ever-changing industry that allows people the chance to work for themselves.

"I let that shit go." He says. "I learned to see myself as the hero in the story." He shifted his belief from someone who wasn't worthy, into someone who had a 7-figure online business. And, guess what?
Dan went on to have revenue of 6 figures only 10 months after quitting his job and reached 7 figures in revenue before hitting the 2-year mark, and he shares pretty much everything he's learned within the Six Figure Mentor's community.
Turn yourself into the hero of your story. We've all had failures, but experience is what you got when you didn't get what you wanted, says Howard Marks. I failed as an Amazon.com affiliate, I failed as a drop-shipper, I couldn't even get my e-commerce store up and running, and then I gave up on an MLM because they wanted me to solicit friends and family and wouldn't allow me to market their product online, but then I found the missing components....
Training, mentorship, community, and access to tools and resources I didn't know existed.
Timing will never be perfect. There will always be a reason to stay comfortable and avoid risk. The problem with that is that life goes by quicker every year and before you know it a decade has passed and we've not accomplished anything on our bucket list.
I realized that after seeing my kids enjoy snow for the first time. I suddenly knew my vision, which is to be available to make memories with my wife and kids no matter what.
Whether you're passionate about building lifestyle freedom, or something other than that, do it. Life is short and the time is now because everything happens now. It never happened in the future and it can't happen in the past. Do the things you love. Do the things that make you happy. Give yourself permission to experience positive emotion and make yourself the hero in your story. That's the kind of selfishness that absolutely makes sense.
Until next time, please be well.

Meet Stuart Ross, SFM Co-Founder and Your Guide
"Welcome! I started my journey into the digital and entrepreneurial world with nothing more than perseverance, a laptop and a dream.
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.
The reason they call me The Freedom Entrepreneur is because I refused to accept the constraints of traditional employment. Having successfully found a better route, I’m committed to showing others how to live life on their own terms too."
Stuart and his team have helped thousands of people who want to be self-employed from the comfort of their computers, but don't know how. The SFM's Digital Business System and community are one of the fastest ways to get you from where you are, to where you want to be.
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?
