Declare Your Independence

by Martha Giffen

Is it high time you declared your independence?  Is there something that’s standing in the way of your success?

Achieving success always involves breaking loose of something that is holding you back.  It could be negative self-talk,  your perceived lack of finances,  family resistance, whatever.  The list is as long and wide as the population.

Maybe you are wanting to declare independence from that 9 to 5 grind. Maybe it’s time you admitted the path you’re on is not exactly leading to the pursuit of happiness.

Declare, declare, declare!

No matter what is holding you back, once you make the decision to go a different or new direction, once you declare it, you can have it.  Declare!  Makes the magic start happening.  If that last statement was a little too Disney for you, I’m trying to make a point.  Say what you want and then start moving forward!

I have to tell you, three years ago, when I first started toying with the idea of having an online business, it was more than a little far-fetched.  The only computer experience I had was checking my e-mail and selling a few items on e-bay.  Other than that, I was clueless!

Then something happened. . . .

I stumbled across a story of a man who claimed he was a broke blues guitar player and the internet had changed all that.  He had established a biz that was successful and he was teaching others how to do the same.  He had written a book, Your Portable Empire, and I decided to read it.

Now, I wasn’t exactly broke.  My husband had a thriving business.  But after being a stay-at-home Mom for 20 years, I was fast becoming an empty-nester and the economy was starting to take a toll on my life-after-kids career as a Realtor.

So, I declared!

I declared that I would have my own online biz.  And I would do it my way.  And I would run it my way. And it would be successful.  Yes, I actually said that because that’s what declaring is all about!

Anybody out there wanting to break away from the 9-5 grind?  Have the desire to work for yourself?  Want to declare your independence?

Here’s what worked for me. . . .

After reading the book, I attended a seminar put on by the author, Pat O’Bryan.  After that, I enrolled in his online coaching program, Portable Empire Coaching.  You see, after I declared my independence, I had to move that success story forward.  I had to take ACTION!

If you are still sitting on the fence with your success story, get off.  Make it a reality.  Once you declare it, believe it, and take action, you are on your way.  I know, it looks like three steps and it is.  But, once you take the first step, you’re more than half way there!

Is this your story?

Are you also wanting to start your own biz?  If so, let me know.  I’ll help steer you in the right direction.  If you are serious and interested in speeding up the process, join me at Pat’s Unseminar 9 in Austin, TX on July 15-17.

It’s the quickest way to gather the info you need, meet people who can help you, and catapult your success!  I should also mention there’s always cool blues music too icon smile Declare Your Independence

Make it happen for yourself!



p.s.  It was announced yesterday that the seminar is almost sold out.  Declare your independence quickly!
