The ‘No Excuses’ Attitude

The No Excuses Attitude

The ‘no excuses’ attitude starts with my business story, where I took my business profits and turned them into smart real estate investments which resulted in a $2 million dollar + portfolio in just 5 years. This was the beginning of building real wealth and my desire for a freedom lifestyle.

However, when I was sitting at zero, there was absolutely no way I could wrap my head around going from $0 to $2 million in the time that I did.  When I look back at how it happened, I can see now that it was because of my ‘no excuses’ attitude.

Let’s talk more about my story.

When I started my home-based network marketing business, it was just after I moved to Ottawa after living in Italy for 3 years. Even though I didn’t know anyone here, I just started to talk to people, initially through my kids who had friends with parents and my wonderful dog, Mackie, an Airdale Terrier, who was loved by everyone in the neighbourhood!

That’s really how it all started.  Just being genuinely interested in others.  From there I joined networking groups and that’s when my business grew in leaps and bounds. I realized it was the power of a network.  And in the last few years I used those same skills to build my relationships on-line through social media and blogging.

My point here is, that it could have been too easy to give up and make a bunch of excuses.

For example, not knowing anyone in Ottawa or not speaking French in this bilingual city.  And there’s many more!  Believe me, there were times when I didn’t feel like reaching out to people or going out to an early morning networking event.  It’s about ‘just doing it’ even when you don’t feel like it.

So why, a ‘no excuses’ attitude?

You will be rewarded beyond your wildest dreams.  And I’m not just talking about the money reward.  There’s nothing better than a feeling of accomplishment and making a real difference in people’s lives.

You have a big ‘why’.  This is your reason to go after your goals and dreams and I know you can do it with this kind of attitude. For me it was about being a role model for my kids and being there for them in every way.

Your integrity and doing what you say you’re going to do. You owe it to yourself.  It’s about providing value to others. It’s about being authentic and building solid relationships.

Building my wellness business and then my real estate portfolio was based on these principles.  Without them, I know it would not have resulted in going from $0 – $2 million+ in 5 years and now living the lifestyle I always dreamed of.  So, if I can do it, you can do it too!
