This week only, I introduced five people to writing. Yeeeeey!!!
I am not a pro yet. I started just the other day, but I consider myself an influence. If I see an opportunity, I like to inspire others to succeed. Trust me, I will carry you along.
After enjoying summer, winter finally landed. I finished the project I had and was only left with droplets of articles to write. It felt so empty… and blank… and broke.
I didn’t know I was getting so attached to blogging. I tried to come up with articles for moneymakingjourneys.com but I could hardly impress myself with the posts. So I decided not to post them.
Just today I was feeling sorry for myself because the week is ending and I have made zero $ dollars.
Thank God, I have a great trainer. Walter Akolo, I owe you.
It’s like he senses just the time to speak. I was on my way home from work and was feeling exhausted and wasted. He came up to our chat group and started asking us about our progress and encouraging us. How timely?
Sometimes all you need is a friend to speak a word and keep you going.
That’s why you need real friends around you. I started counting my blessings and I realized I have learnt a great deal this week. Even though I did not get orders done; I used my time very well.
So, today I am emphasizing on building networks.
I learned about writing on Facebook, I don’t even remember how but I thank God I did. I have many dormant social accounts but Facebook can never be one of them. Through Facebook, I have reconnected with so many old friends. I have also learned so much on parenting through a group called “My newborn and Beyond”. This is the best group I ever joined. It made parenting so much fun. Thanks, Allison.
The next best group for me is “Remarkable Freelance Writers in Africa”, I found it through my trainer. It’s like my diary, every time I want to share a challenge, I scroll down the recent posts and I always find a solution from someone who was there before me.
I must confess I have met awesome people online. This idea of spreading positive energy and knowledge to people all over the world whether they read or not, like or insert funny faces, is just splendid.
You need to try it. Think of the way wires connect and create current, that’s the same way you need to connect with people globally to stay charged up.
It’s true that people are different. I have my guiding principles, you have yours but when we bring them together, we form a circle of influence that generations can benefit from. Too much information is posted online nowadays; choose to make a difference and post positive stuff.
I am a bit worn out tonight so I won’t write much. I just wanted to tell you that building friendships online can make your dreams come true.
I intend to create a thorough post on Networking as a tool for business but in the meantime, you can check out our Facebook group and join.
Feel free to share those brilliant ideas you have, video clips or quotes. We enjoy learning from each other.
Have an awesome weekend ahead. Make as many friends as the stars.
