Start YOUR Infopreneur Business with Bailey Richert
How To Become An Active Participant In Your Life
We at The Successful Thinker world are big into growing our thought process and turning into exceptional people. If you’ve downloaded my Exceptional Life Blueprint, you know that number two in steps of ways to become an exceptional person is to create your own products and offers. I’m a great believer that life right now requires that you are an active player and you are not setting yourself up to be like go buy a company or to be unemployed in a year because you didn’t plan for your life. This person that I have to speak with is active in that space. She is an infopreneur coach. Her name is Bailey Richert and she’s an award-winning business coach who helps individuals launch and grow profitable online enterprises as infopreneurs. They are respected experts in their field, creating value, generating income and realizing their ideal lifestyles by sharing their life experience, knowledge and passions with others through information, products and services. Bailey, welcome. How are you?
Thank you so much for having me. I’m doing great.
I was talking to you before and I was saying that I was listening to your TEDx Talk and it excited me about how you got into entrepreneurship. Can you share a little bit about your journey and how you got to where you are now?
My name is Bailey Richert and I am a business coach for infopreneurs but I wasn’t always. I grew up believing in the American dream. That’s what my parents taught me. Probably like a lot of the readers, your parents taught you something similar that you’re supposed to dedicate yourself to your studies, work hard in school, get a scholarship, maybe go to more school, university, get a job, and one day you’ll retire. That’s what I believed in and that’s the path I followed for a long time. I was high school valedictorian and I got a scholarship to study engineering at Rensselaer, which is United States of America’s oldest engineering university. I got my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Engineering there and eventually wound up working as an environmental engineering consultant out of California for many years. Until about the age of 25, I’ve been doing that job for a few years and I was reaching the pinnacle of my career to an extent.
I know that there are wonderful engineers who do incredible work for decades and decades, but one of the things that we have in the field of engineering is called your PE or your professional engineering licensing. To me, that was the pinnacle. It represented the final step that I needed to accomplish to achieve all the levels of professional engineering. I was studying and taking those exams and passing those exams, but at the same time dealing with something in my own life, which was a quarter-life crisis. I was about 25 years old at the time. A quarter-life crisis is exactly what it sounds like. It’s like a midlife crisis, only instead of having it at 40 or 45, you have it around 25. I was struggling with the fact that the path that I was on wasn’t necessarily the path that I wanted to be on for the rest of my life, and so I started to consider other options.
That’s what my TEDx Talk was about. It was this concept of having a life crisis and starting a business as a way to help you navigate your way out of that. I did decide that I wanted to go into entrepreneurship because I thought that it was the only avenue that was going to provide me all of the different things that I wanted in life. I wanted to have a bit more money if I’m being honest. I wanted more time freedom. I wanted to see my family more. They were living all the way on the other side of the country back in Pittsburgh where I’m from. I wanted more time to dedicate to my philanthropic efforts. I wanted to travel more. I wanted a lot of things and I realized that being my own boss was the only way I was going to get all of that. I started embarking on this pretty long journey to becoming my own boss. Originally, I started working online while I was still at my 9 to 5 and exploring all of that, but decided that I needed more time to be able to make this successful.
I decided to leave my 9 to 5 and enrolled at graduate school at MIT where I studied entrepreneurship for two years as part of a graduate program. It wasn’t an MBA program, it was in the engineering department, but I was able to work on my business while I was there. When I graduated, I had the goal of being fully 100% self-employed, which I was. Eventually, the business that I had started morphed quite a bit. Now what I do is business coaching for infopreneurs, which means that I work with other individuals who want to start their own businesses online, usually as a personal brand, leveraging your life experience, knowledge and passion to create and sell information products like eBooks, online courses, virtual summits, masterminds, coaching and things like that. That’s what I’ve been doing for several years now. That’s what I do and I love it.
You’re good at it. One of the things that I want to share with the audience is that I am a student of yours. I have enrolled in your virtual summit school and I’m impressed with the way you lay out your information. One of the things I was wanting us to is the process of becoming an infopreneur. I feel like you have a number of core values that you build your business around and I was hoping you could share some of those.
The process of becoming an infopreneur is not as difficult as many people think that it is. There’s a lot of work that you can do to lay the foundation of your business before you even consider leaving a 9 to 5 job, which is one of the reasons that I like it. I personally am not super risk-averse in my life, but I would never encourage anybody to just make a leap out into the unknown without having a good financial safety net there. The ability to start an infopreneur business while you’re working at the 9 to 5 gives you the best of both worlds. You can pursue something on your own while still having a steady stream of income. Some of those things that you can do when you’re getting started are figuring out your niche and your ideal audience.
Who is it that you’re going to serve? Working on your messaging. What is it that you’re all about? What do you teach? Your branding. Visually, how do you want to be perceived by others? Getting your website up, starting to create some initial content, trying to figure out how you’re going to monetize this audience that you’re building. There’s a lot of stuff that you can do first. You mentioned the core values in my business. One of the things that’s unique about infopreneurship is that most of us out there are operating as personal brands. Meaning that my name in life is Bailey Richert, but my business is also Bailey Richert at BaileyRichert.com. When you are operating as yourself but you’re also operating as a business, things tend to sometimes get a little blurred.
Is it my business? Is that my business persona that’s speaking? Is it my persona that’s speaking? Having a firm foundation of the values upon which you want to build your business, as well as your life, is important. We all have values in our own life. We know how we all want to behave, act and be treated in our own lives. In business, we need to make sure that we have those boundaries set and those values established as well. Some of my values, there are several, but transparency is huge. One of the things I value with my audience is being transparent about how I build my business, how I make money online, my profits from my different launches. I’m not interested in misleading anybody down a path and suggesting, “You can make $1 million overnight,” or “Look at me doing work from my laptop on a sandy beach,” which is absurd and nobody does that. Being transparent about what it takes to succeed online, that’s important to me. Inclusiveness is incredibly important to me. Setting an example for my audience of good work-life balance is important to me. Being legal and ethical and doing my business a way that is proper and right, that’s important to me. Those are some of the values upon which I’ve built my business.
It’s interesting because it shines through in your course. You have a name for it. It’s a webinar that plays repeatedly. What’s the name for that?Everything you need to know to start your own online business is learnable. Click To Tweet
The auto webinar?
Yes, and one of the things that happened was I was on another guy’s webinar and all he wanted to do was to sell and wasn’t giving any value. I said, “Somebody else must be doing what this guy’s doing but hopefully, they’re doing it in a better way.” I found you through a Google search and what impressed me is exactly what you said. You were giving out the real figures that real people could generate in the real world. I wanted to say to the readers, and I thought you were a great model for this, a lot of infopreneurs or entrepreneurs in general get confused. A lot of times they want to act as though they’re somebody’s hero. I was thinking you had a counterpoint to that.
It’s important for people to be authentic. I know that’s a buzzword that gets thrown around a lot. What does it mean to be authentic? What’s important is to portray a version of yourself that is truthful. One of the ways in which it often gets blurred whenever it comes to infopreneurs, especially business coaches that are doing things like income and profit reports, is that we often try always to portray the best version of ourselves that looks the most impressive. People will be impressed by our work and then they’ll want to hire us. Oftentimes what people will do is they’ll report their income, maybe from a launch or their annual income report, but they’re not actually reporting their business expenses and final profit alongside that. One of the things that you often hear from business coaches is, “My latest course had a six-figure launch.” They might not even specify whether that’s income or profit. They’re leading you to assume is it profit?
A lot of people do think that. They don’t necessarily know any better. Maybe they’re not terribly experienced in business or they want to give that person the benefit of the doubt. They think that infopreneur business coach, whoever, walked away with six-figures in their pocket as profit, but in reality, that’s not how it went at all. That person probably had a six-figure launch like they’re saying. I don’t doubt that they’re trying to be truthful in that regard. If it’s six figures in income and let’s say they had $100,000 launch, six figures, but they spent $75,000 of it on expenses between ad spend, contractors to help them with the launch, graphic designers and things like that, as well as paying out their affiliates, hosting, all those sorts of things. They walk away with $25,000. It’s not necessarily, in my opinion, the most honest way to represent yourself.
You’re right because what happens is that other people then do things like quit their job. They think that they can do what this other person does because the other person says so confidently, “I can show you how to make six figures,” but they don’t say, “I could show you how to keep six figures.” I thought that was an incredible distinction. When I watched your auto webinar, you did just that. You listed out exactly what you paid to launch your first virtual summit. I was impressed by that. I was wanting to encourage the successful thinkers out there, before you start any business, examine your core values and operate in the way that Bailey operates in that you can have the freedom, you can have the success, but you can also have something probably even more important. You can walk away at the end of the day withincredible self-respect.
You hit the nail on the head right there, self-respect. For me, that’s a large portion of what this is about. Can I honestly look at myself in the mirror at the end of the day and be happy with the person that I see? I am not in my business to try and fool anyone so that I can get sales. I’m not saying that other people are either. Sometimes it’s easy to look at an industry that’s comfortable with those lax standards and think that there’s nothing wrong with it. I personally like to hold myself to a higher standard and I would like to set a new standard for our industry with that level of transparency, truthfulness and authenticity.
One of the things that happened to me when I first started my journey was I thought the things that I wanted to teach were so obvious that no one would want to learn them. I was wondering, do you come across people who run into those types of disempowering beliefs? Do you run into people that are teaching things that other people wouldn’t necessarily expect but are having success doing it?
There are definitely individuals out there with limiting beliefs about what people will pay for and what they could teach others. Even among successful infopreneurs, there is this belief that the level of content that I know, everybody else must also know. This is so basic. In reality, it’s not the case. We are our own experts in our own fields and we have to make an assumption that people do not have our own similar life experiences nor knowledge accumulated from those experiences. Chances are they don’t know even the basic things that you know. Even if they do know some of the basic facts, they can’t necessarily bring to it a level of analyzation that you can as an expert who’s been doing what you do in your field for so long. There are people out there who might know the basics of sales funnels, for example, but because I’ve been doing them for so long, I can bring a level of expertise. I can analyze somebody’s funnel and tell them how they can make it better and increase their ROI with a few simple tweaks or steps compared to somebody else that doesn’t have the same level of experience in my field. We do tend to underestimate what it is that we know and what it is that we can sell through info products and services.
One thing that was interesting that you did was the Funnel Fest in which you are doing that. You were showing the theory behind a sales funnel and then it was showing people how to do it. One of the things that a lot of people do when they first start out is they don’t realize that they have to approach their entrepreneurship as a business. Can you speak a little bit about the difference between having information and turning that information into a business?
This is one of the definite struggles that infopreneurs have when they’re getting started. They are a wealth of knowledge about the expertise that they have established or that they have built up over the years from their own life experiences. The business sense of it all isn’t necessarily something that they know because they never had to monetize that expertise. Perhaps they have shared it with other people, but not in the same way that infopreneurs do. They haven’t necessarily written a book and then tried to sell it or they have never done a course and then tried to sell it. They’ve never created a sales funnel or something like that.
Normally, people who have that type of experience want to share it freely with others that they’re willing in whatever way they can. Maybe they’ve shared it in a blog before or they’ve given local talks. They’ve shared it with friends and family, through emails or something like that. The way that you need to share content in order to be a successful infopreneur is a bit different. You need to have marketing plans. You need to understand your own pricing strategy. You need to understand value ladders and what it takes to upsell people who are investing in your smaller priced items so that you can get them into your higher-priced packages and things like that.
It definitely requires a base of knowledge in order to become an infopreneur business owner that many people don’t necessarily start out with inherently. It doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to learn. It’s important to recognize that everything can be learned if that’s your goal, but it’s going to require some time investment. It’s going to recognize that there are things that are outside of your wheelhouse at the moment, but they don’t have to be for long if you’re willing to invest the time to learn how to do it properly. That’s where people like me come in. As a business coach for infopreneurs, it’s my job to step in and say, “You’re amazing at the thing you do. You have so much knowledge about this particular area of expertise and I can’t wait for you to share it with the world. If you want to monetize it properly and create a sustainable and profitable business, then this is what you’re going to have to do next.”When people have to pay for something, they ultimately are going to value it more. Click To Tweet
One of the things that you brushed upon is another area of struggle for beginning infopreneurs. A lot of people freeze up at the idea of charging people for their knowledge. Can you share why it’s important that we lose that mindset?
It’s important to recognize that people are going to value things more if they have to pay for them, which I know sounds a little strange because anytime we get something for free, we think, “What amazing value. I got this awesome thing for free.” When it comes to info products, the truth is that excitement over that free thing doesn’t last very long. For example, we see a lot of infopreneurs that try to launch online courses. In order to get early stage feedback or testimonials, they’ll often introduce a Beta group and they’ll give away a certain number of enrollments in their program for free.
Without fail, what happens every time is the individuals that raise their hands and said, “I want that program for free. I swear I’ll do it. I will from beginning to end and then I’ll give you an amazing testimonial.” They never follow through. That’s because they didn’t have to lay down any money for it. They didn’t end up valuing it nearly as much as they claimed to value it. When people have to pay for something, they ultimately are going to value it more. Think about anything in your life you’ve ever saved up for, if you’ve saved up for a vacation, for a car or for some luxury item that you wanted and you know how much hard work and effort it took to get that thing, you’re going to value it a lot.
On the other side, easy come, easy go. If it came to you quickly, you don’t think much of it. As an infopreneur who might struggle with charging for our services, we have to realize that our goal is to get our ideal clients to accomplish their goals. It’s our job to put the knowledge in the hands of our clients and then help them get to the end result through our course or through our book or something like that. If we give everything away for free, we undercharge and we don’t price our things well enough, people aren’t going to value them enough. They’re not going to finish and they’re not going to get results.
We’re not going to get testimonials and it’s a bad snowball effect. If we do charge properly for our products and services, then people are going to find value in them. They’re going to know what the worth of it is. They’re going to see it through. They’re going to follow through with you on the coaching program. They’re going to finish that course and get results, which then is better for us as the business owner because we’re going to get happy students who got results. We’ll get testimonials from them. We can put those on our sales page, we’ll make more sales, and then it’s a positive snowball.
We can amplify our effect and help many more people. I always say that if we don’t do that, then we’re stealing from the people we were born to help. Bailey, one of the things that I admire about you is that you seem to be incredibly organized in your online business. Can you help me understand a bit how you go about setting your goals and planning out the next few months?
I was talking to a friend about this because I had to sit down and revisit my plans for the next six months. Even though as infopreneurs, we might try our best as very organized ones to maybe figure out our schedule almost up to an entire year in advance. There are always things that happen to pop up, an amazing affiliate opportunity or a speaking engagement that we didn’t necessarily think we were going to get that we end up landing that ultimately throws our calendar and schedule off a little bit. For me, it all revolves around the real calendar. When I sat down to plan out the rest of the months of 2019, I said, “Let’s take a look at the calendar.” The first thing I’m going to do is identify when I have holidays, events or things where I’m definitely not going to be working.
I don’t want to do a launch or I’m going to be away traveling and I need to be cognizant of those times. I will usually plan this out on my Google Calendar, but sometimes I also write it down on a paper calendar to help me visualize it all at once. I’ll mark those dates out. The next thing I do is I look at my business and I say, “What are the big goals?” Not the little things, but the major things that I need to accomplish over the next several months. Is it a re-launch of a course? Is it the launch of a new program? Is it finishing that book I’ve been working on? Is it doing my annual summit that always factors into my plans for the year somehow? Am I aware of any affiliate programs or launches that I’m definitely going to be a part of because I’ve already committed to that? How does all of that stuff fit in?
I start playing with it all like it’s a puzzle and starting to see, “I know this launch is going to take at least three months to do, so there’s no way I’m going to be able to do that until at least October. Why don’t we put that in November right before the holiday season and that’ll be the last thing of the year? I wanted to finish this book. It’s not going to take that long and it will fit well into this email series. I’m going to do that first. We’re going to finish that in August.” That’s pretty much how it works. That is the plan. A plan doesn’t mean set in stone. It means this is what I want to accomplish and this is what I will accomplish if nothing goes wrong. Things often do and plans can change and you have to learn to be a bit flexible like that in your business. For the most part, that’s how it works. I wish there was some secret sauce or a little bit more complicated methodology that I could share, but that’s how I do it.
That’s perfect because what you’re talking about is strategic thinking mixed with flexibility. In The Successful Thinker book, we talk about the Law of the Agenda, which says that you can go ahead and fight the universe or you can figure out how to flow along with it. This is important. What you said is so true. You have to go through the act of planning because you and I can tell how successful a person is based on their calendar. One of the things that you and I both know is that entrepreneurship and infopreneurship is oftentimes fraught with problems and obstacles. How do you personally go about overcoming obstacles and how do you help your clients to do the same?
The truth is it depends on what obstacle you’re talking about. There are many different kinds of obstacles. There are obstacles where we get in our own ways. There are obstacles of mindset blocks. Maybe we’re having money mindset issues and we’re afraid to increase our prices or something like that. There are other obstacles which are totally outside of our hands. There’s the obstacle of you’re working with a partner and they’re not holding up their end of the deal. Your Facebook Ad account got shut down and you have to deal with that obstacle. There are external and then there are internal obstacles. The first thing is which one of those obstacles are we dealing with? Based on that answer, there are different remedies.
For external obstacles, more often than not, the answer is usually systems. Putting in systems in place that allow you to have backup systems, contingency plans, all that stuff. Those are important things. Whenever it comes to the internal obstacles like the mindset issues and all that stuff, it comes in different ways and maybe everybody handles it a little bit differently. Whether it’s needing the support of a coach or an accountability partner, joining a mastermind or simply changing up your routine to involve more quiet time with God, meditation every day to distress or taking those ten minutes every morning before you jump into your workday. There are a million different things and it completely depends on what that obstacle is.The most successful people in the world are those that are teachable and willing to learn from the people around them. Click To Tweet
The point is that virtually all obstacles are overcomeable.
That’s probably a good assessment. In my own business, all of the obstacles that I have encountered, I have been able to overcome. I’m sure that there are some that can’t. None immediately come to mind but never say never.
I love that because one of the things that happen is people want to start a business. They have a solid message and they have a great heart for it. They run into a roadblock and they stop. What I want our readers to do is to not stop. I want our readers to do what you’ve said early in the interview that things can be learned or experts can be hired. One of the things that’s interesting is I was enjoying your funnel festival because one thing that excites me is that over the last few years, the tools have come out to make infopreneurship and entrepreneurship something that can happen within one system. I know you use ClickFunnels. Would you like to talk a little bit about what that can do for you and how you like to use it and teach it?
ClickFunnels is an incredible software. Essentially it’s an all-in-one marketing software. It is something that allows online business owners to create sales funnels so that they can market, sell and then deliver their products and services. It came out in 2014 and I jumped on it in 2015, so I was one of their early adopters and I honestly knew that from the day I joined this was going to be the future of marketing. I decided in that moment I was going to use it to build my entire business. I’m glad I made that decision because I had been light years ahead of everybody else that discovered it years later and then had to move everything from their business over to it. ClickFunnels for me has been incredible because it allowed me to create incredible funnels to sell my products and services.
It is an indispensable part of my business. I’m not sure what I would do without it. I’ve also had the incredible opportunity to work with and get closer to the ClickFunnels staff and community over the years. Russell Brunson, the Cofounder and CEO of ClickFunnels, hired me to do some projects with him, some virtual summits. I spoke at their conference Funnel Hacking LIVE in Nashville. That was an incredible opportunity and I’m grateful to Russell for shining a light on me and my expertise and that’s done a great deal to help elevate my business as well. It’s an incredible tool and anybody that’s doing any business online should check it out, specifically infopreneurs. It’s well designed for those that are selling info products and services like eBooks, online courses, summits, things like that.
One thing I noticed is that they do a good job of teaching their clients how to use their product. Not just functionally but also ideologically, why you should be doing certain things and so forth. That time you’re talking about around 2015 was an interesting time because before you had to try to bolt a whole bunch of different things together. Now there are multiple platforms that do it, but ClickFunnels is probably one of the best that allows a person to do all the things they need to do. One of the things that young entrepreneurs or infopreneurs do is they start rushing around, trying to grab all these tools and grab all this advice and so forth. What I like people to do is to focus on one thing, learn it well, and then move on a little bit. Speaking of learning, you’re one of the most intelligent people that I’ve ever talked to. I wonder how you go about educating yourself and keeping out in front of the curve when I talk about the constant and never-ending life improvement. How do you go about educating yourself?
I wish I could honestly say, “I belong to this book club,” or something like that but it’s not true. More often than not, it comes from surrounding myself with people that are slightly ahead of me because I learned from them. I see what they’re doing in life. I also pick up on the resources that they are reading, watching or looking at, that sort of thing. There are all of those old clichés that are so true. That’s why there are clichés about how you never want to be the smartest person in the room. You are the average of the five people that you spend your most time around and all that stuff.
For the most part, even anecdotally, they’re true to some degree. You ask about how do I stay ahead of the curve or how do I continually improve myself after already accelerating to a certain level. It’s by seeking out those individuals that are doing even better than myself. I mean that in a lot of different ways. I mean that in terms of revenue that are doing better than myself and their own businesses. Maybe they’ve accomplished a certain life goal that I would also like to accomplish. I want to learn how they did it and study and model their methods. In my opinion, that’s how it happens.
I want to congratulate you on that because very rarely will people in an expert space admit that they don’t know everything. It’s the intelligent people who say, “This guy knows something I don’t. I want to find out what it is.” It’s cool because it’s back to the transparency thing. One of the greatest things that ever happened to me was the day that I realized I didn’t have to know everything. Unfortunately, I was twenty years older than you are when that happened. I’m a slow learner. However, I do agree though that the people that you’re around make a huge difference in your life. The opposite is true, if you allow yourself to be surrounded by people who tell you, “You can’t,” by people with negative attitudes, you literally take yourself right out of the game.
The most successful people in the world that I know are teachable. They are willing to learn from the people around them. It’s always the stubborn ones or the individuals that think that they know it all that never succeed past a certain natural or inherent ability that they might have. They’re unwilling to admit that there’s so much more that they could learn. They’ll never excel past a certain level.
You defined one aspect of what separates a successful thinker from an average thinker. Do you have other thoughts on what separates successful thinkers from average thinkers?
First of all, I would ask for a clearer definition of average versus successful because there are certain elements to that. Does average mean that you’re following the status quo of what most people in the world are thinking and successful thinkers are following what the 1% are thinking about? Does it mean that successful thinkers are people that think for themselves even though they might not be classified as part of the elite or 1% or whatever it is that you want to call them? There’s a certain definition that probably needs to be defined there based on the answer that you want to provide. For me, if I was to classify myself as a successful thinker, what I would want that definition to mean for me is that I have critical thought. It’s not just that I am successful in my own life and can show it on the outside and to prove to other people that I’m successful because to me, that doesn’t matter all that much. If I’m a successful thinker, it means that I have been capable of critical thinking that has put me on a path to the type of success that I would like to have and put me on a path to living the life that I would like to have.Take action and become an active participant in your own life. Click To Tweet
When I think about it in terms of that definition, being a critical thinker and being a successful thinker means that you need to take every bit of knowledge that has ever been handed to you and you need to question it. It might be 100% truth, but it would always behoove you to consider the alternate possibilities. This is important when it comes to societal norms. When I was leaving my engineering job, there were so many people that said things to me like, “You’ve worked so hard at your engineering career, why would you want to give it up? Are you sure this is a good idea?” If I was an average thinker based on the definition we’ve laid out, it would be easy to take those things as gospel because they sound like the truth. They sound completely correct. From my perspective as a critical thinker or successful thinker, I had to consider a lot more than just how I was going to be perceived by others. I had to take into account significantly more factors than my coworkers were privy to. I know that’s probably quite an existential definition, but that’s how I think about it.
I was so proud of you for that definition. I have a son who’s about to be seventeen, and he was asking me, “Dad, what’s the difference between immoral and illegal?” That’s a fun question. To make a long story short, one of the things that I asked him to do is I said, “Whenever there’s a discussion, whether it be politics, morality or ethicalness, what I want you to do is think hard about your answer before you speak. Don’t just mimic what you’ve heard other people say.” Bailey, I’ve talked to a lot of people in my life and you came as close to my own definition of successful thinking as anyone ever has. It’s a question of what I believe to be true at the moment or what the other person believes to be true at the moment, is it in fact true for me? Am I accepting it as gospel or am I examining it? That’s all I ask for from the people in my life.
If we were all a bit more critical thinkers, then there would be a lot of people that would probably make different life decisions than they already have. It’s so easy for us to accept the thoughts that have been planted in our heads for a very long time.
What I was hoping that you would do is share with us a little bit more of how a person can get involved with working with you and the products that you offer.
Thank you so much for asking. If people want to learn more about me and my business, they can go to BaileyRichert.com.

There are links to all of my courses and there’s a contact page there as well. People can send me messages. For those people that would prefer to reach out directly over email, you can contact me at Contact@BaileyRichert.com
It’s important that people are expanding their horizons and their ability to make money because unfortunately, the world is changing so rapidly that you can’t count on your current job to support you for the rest of your life. Bailey, can you share with us one parting thought for our readers that you would like people to know about you and your business and what you stand for?
One of the common themes running throughout this interview as well as my business is the idea of taking action and being an active participant in your own life. That’s something you and I were speaking about before. That’s the coach that I am. There are lots of different coaches out there and different coaching styles. There are many people who are excellent listeners and you particularly hire them for accountability so that you can talk to them every single week and they can listen. I’m a good listener, but my coaching style is more action-based. My goal is to help you learn how to make money online so that you can design your life and ultimately live out your dreams and your ideal lifestyle. That’s my goal for you.
If that’s the kind of person that your readers would resonate with, I hope that they will reach out. Regardless of whether they end up working with me or not, I hope that they will remember that nothing in their life is ever going to change unless they make it happen. You can wake up every single day and keep living the same life over and over and wish it was different but wishing isn’t enough. You have to take that action. Do those first initial steps even if they seem scary to you. Go to the website, download the free toolkit, reach out, join the free Facebook group, and meet other people. Take those first initial steps, the ones that are no risk at all, and then continue down the path and you’ll see the next steps in front of you the further down you go.
You reminded me of a fantastic quote. It says that, “There comes a time in your life when you must firmly choose the course of action you will follow or the relentless drift of events will make the decision for you.”
Who said that? That’s excellent.
I think his name is Herbert V. Prochnow. Bailey, I want to thank you for spending time with us. Successful Thinkers, I want to thank you for spending time with Bailey and I. I hope that you will do what she said. Take action and go and visit her website. I can tell you from personal experience, it is helpful and Bailey really walks the talk. If you want to learn more about The Successful Thinker and my books and the things that we do, I’ve got a new tool out there. All you have to do is text the word THINK to 64600. I want to thank you all. I want you to remember that no matter what happens out there, I believe in you.
