Welcome to another edition of the Affiliate Buzz, where affiliate marketers have been coming to be inspired, informed and motivated to succeed since way back in 2003. Last week, James spoke to David Dalka, founder of Fearless Revival, about the strategic positioning of performance marketing and how to quantify strategic value. This week, bestselling author Vickie Helm is on the show to share some of her secrets to finding ultimate freedom in life.
Vickie Helm is a business development strategist and the author of the groundbreaking new book “Ultimate Freedom: Unlock the Secrets to a Life of Passion, Purpose, and Prosperity”. With a background in both business development and as a relationship expert, she explains to James how people can break out of a rut in order to find their passion. They explore the reasons that people get stuck, how people can take the first step, and how to ensure that when you make a big change, you’ll be successful.
Freedom is Not a Right
According to Vickie, it’s best to leave protecting our freedom to the military. What we should focus on instead, in order to honor those who protect our freedom, is to ensure that we pursue our freedom. Vickie explains to James that there are 6 different types of freedom to pursue, and that no single one will ensure happiness and fulfillment. They also examine the 5 big reasons that people in a rut stay in a rut, and how you can recognize and avoid those traps.
Finding Ultimate Freedom
How do you know when it’s time to make a change, and what’s the first step to getting out of a rut? Vickie first explains to James the four main signs that it might be time to do something different in your life. Then they discuss the three-step process that Vickie says is key to taking the first step to change.
One of the hardest things about a serious life change is finding the strength to go through with it. For Vickie, that strength comes primarily from having a good support system. She explains to James what makes a good support system, and how to ensure you have one in place before you take that first step. They also look at some of the barriers that people have to setting up a support system in the first place, and how to overcome them.
