When the economy tanked back in 2008, Deborah Robertson decided she’d had enough.
She looked around and saw that traditional methods of saving for retirement, working 9 to 5, socking money away in a 401k, and counting on government programs, just did not work.
Those days are over. You would think most people would understand that, right?
The world has changed. You can’t count on the old ways, now that the new age is here.
But, I’m consistently shocked to discover that most people have gone right back to their old ways.
Saving, working a 9 to 5 job, trying to save and rebuild their “nest egg” just like they did years ago.
A house built on sand.
But Deborah Robertson took the road less traveled. She started her own online business, decided she was no longer going to trust the government and Wall Street to provide for her future. She took her destiny in her own hand. She even wrote a book about it.
And, perhaps most importantly, she started attending online business masterminds, in order to be around people who understood that the world has changed, that the “9 to 5 mentality” just does not work.
If you’ve decided to start your own online business, beware!
Beware of the 9 to 5ers in your life. They just don’t get it. Don’t let them break your spirit.
Get around people who do. And the best way to start is through MTTB.
