All your life you have heard that circumstances lead to opportunities. That is to say, “Problems Create Opportunities”, “Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining”, “ When Things Get Tough, The Tough Get Going”. Please, do understand that every circumstance carries within it a hidden reward.
None of us can make light of these extremely devastating circumstances. All of us must forge a path for our unified and personal survival. First we must collectively accept and acknowledge the reality. Consequently, we then must adhere to the guidelines developed to arrest the situation
Mandated and self imposed quarantine policies are now being activated. Therefore, many of us have been forced to remain at home. Creating a whole new set of personal problems.
At the top of this list regains financial concerns centered on the potential loss of income. Running a very close second is the creative use of forced down time.

Now, may be a good time to consider entrepreneurship. Now, may be the time to pursue your passions. This, may be the time to create the lifestyle you have been dreaming of. There is no greater happiness than “Self Fulfillment”.
Pick Your Path
All business must address problems and or pain points for their customers. In your contemplation of starting a new business of any kind you should naturally begin with an understanding of this concept.
After that, ask yourself these questions; What do I like to do? What gifts/talents do I possess? What is my purpose in life?
Put it all together and you should come up with what I call a “Definite Purpose”. Then ask yourself; What products or services can you provide to solve problems for your customers? DO WHAT YOU LIKE TO DO!!!!!
Now that that is settled, you will soon realize is that there is also a number of problems you too will encounter as you begin your journey.
Initial Entrepreneurial Problems
- Start Up Capital…How much money do you have to get started?
- Products or Services…What products/services can you provide to your customers?
- Learning…(you got a lot to learn) …Where can I get the training/coaching?
- Market…What is my market?
- Marketing/Advertising Strategy
My path to entrepreneurship began with retirement. After retiring I quickly realized that my income had to be subsidized. To live the lifestyle of freedom I desired, I had to create Something. So then I began my contemplation. As a result Digital Age Professionals was conceived and birthed.
Of course I too had to face and solve all the afore-mentioned problems. After much searching and mining I decided that digital marketing provided the opportunities I was looking for.
Having no product or service to offer I had to initially develop my strategy based on affiliate marketing. My research , yielded countless get rich schemes, beware.
“The strength of the effort determines the degree of success”…James Allen.
The two affiliates I have partnered with are The Six Figure Mentors and Aweber. Adopting their products and services has been life changing for me. Their strategies, and coaching coupled with award wining technical platforms provided a solid foundation on which to build.
Choosing the SFM affiliate marketing group was my beginning point. Their program has provided the answer to not one but ALL the aforementioned problems. For a minimal investment I have access to their products and services, conveniently nestled within the frame work of their perfectly constructed sales funnel.
SFM is second to none when it comes to Learning. Working your way through the training modules will set you up for true success. Taking it still further, SFM networking and coaching is superb. And, as an added plus all affiliates have access to thousands of courses (in the niche of your choice) through LinkedIn Learning.
Of course customer acquisition reigns supreme. Automation is the answer. In partnership with AWeber we have developed an extremely successful automated email program with minimal investment.
Email is the corner stone of our marketing strategy. Email automation coupled with social media marketing concepts will get you where you need to be.
After considerable investigation I found that AWeber provides the greatest bang for the buck. You will find that they lead the industry in the newest technologies. Check out AMP (accelerated mobile pages), email carousel, the instant personalized email templates, and landing pages.
The compatibility of the two tech platforms was my selling point. Seamless integration between SFM and AWeber has been the key for me.
