All right, you guys have to be on boob patrol, because the girls are going to want to pop out of this shirt.
Here I am. This is my intro.
Hey, it’s Marie Forleo and you are watching Marie TV, the place to be if you want a business and a life you love, this is Q and A Tuesday. That almost sounded like, “This is So You Think You Can Dance,” but it’s Q and A Tuesday. And today’s question comes from Jane, and Jane writes, “I’m here and ready to take on my new multi-passionate adventure. I’m educating myself with your videos, attending workshops, and I’m even on the crew for an Anthony Robbins event in London.” We love Anthony. “I’m starting to build my tribe slowly and it feels great. More than great, freaking amazing. But here’s my question, how do I create an online presence with zero, zilch, nada technical knowhow or financial means? Thank you for your time, energy, and sharing your passions. PS, let me know if you have a fancy coming to London.”
Girl, thank you so much for asking this question because you, Miss Jane, inspires the first ever PSA Tuesday. Have you ever wished you knew how to do something and not done it because you didn’t know how to do it. This condition can be devastating, but there’s a cure. It’s called Google. It’s a free website you can access 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And it’s helped millions of people recover from not knowing how to do stuff. Do you have friends that don’t know how to do stuff?
Maybe it’s time you told them to Google it.
Here’s the deal, jane, you mentioned two obstacles you feel are holding you back from building your online presence, technical knowhow and financial resources. Let’s tackle both of them. Number one, the lack of technical knowhow. As you heard in our PSA, you never have to let life pass you by because you don’t know how to do something, so never again in your life will you have to put your life on hold because you don’t know. You just need to use the Google or my other favorite website, the YouTube.
Have you ever wanted to learn how to do something but you don’t like reading words? YouTube.
There are thousands, if not millions, of free how to videos on YouTube, everything from how to tie your shoe to how to change your website header. It is all there, and as I always say, everything is figureoutable. If you make that your mantra, you will never be stuck again.
Number two, you say you lack financial resources. Well, here’s the thing, everything that you need to build an online presence is available right now for free. For example, you can go to wordpress.org for a free blog, and if you want to build an email newsletter list, you can use a service like MailChimp, which currently offers up to 2,000 email subscribers totally for free. Now I suspect, Miss Jane, that you may have some more inner resistance happening inside. Like maybe your mind’s telling you, “I can’t do this,” or, “It’s not going to work,” if that’s going on, I have got the cure for you, and once again, it is for free. I have the best free training in the world on my website, marieforleo.com. It’s a video training called How to Get Anything You Want, it is so awesome it’s going to blow your pants right off, that’s right, no more pants for you. The link is right below.
Before we wrap this up, I want to leave you with one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite guys. And yes, it’s a tweetable.
“When it comes to achieving success in life, it’s not about your resources, it’s about your resourcefulness,” Anthony Robbins. So there you have it, Jane, you now have the resources to create an online presence for free, even with no technical knowledge. You got to keep going for a girl, I believe in you. I know you can do this, but you need to believe in yourself. Now I’d love to hear from you. Do you ever let the fact that you don’t know how to do something stop you from moving ahead? Have you ever had to overcome a lack of resources or lack of knowhow? I want to hear your stories. I want to hear your insights. As always the best stuff happens after the episode, over at marieforleo.com, so go there and leave a comment right now.
