|The ticket that got me thinking.|
I've been over using my behind for five years now, but lately I've been thinking, unless I want the fat in it and in my tummy to grow and start cascading around me like the folds of a ball gown, I need to plan for a career that'll involve fewer hours of sitting. Besides, if I stayed in SEO for good, what kind of stories would I tell my grandkids one day?
You know what kids, when I was a young lady, I was living the dream, I stared at thousands of backlinks every day while patiently cultivating my internal fat farm.
I don't mean to leave the online world entirely. There's always the option to earn passive income or hire other incredible slugs to do the sedentary work for me. Also, I have moderate and completely legal ambitions. I don't plan to become the country's president like Manny Pacquiao or the maker of imaginary friends in need like Janet Napoles (allegedly). I just want to be the master of my own home work cubicle and my loyal constituents, the dust particles on my desk.
So over the weekend, I attended Janette Toral's live Digital Influencer Bootcamp in the hopes of picking up a few tips on how to become my own boss. I like learning from Toral because she is an expert of guru proportions without the ego to match and she never holds back.

True enough, she took us through everything an online entrepreneur needs to know from evaluating one's passions, goals and personal business model to outlining legal requirements, SEO strategies and modes of social media promotion.
At the end of the day, I must admit, I was in a bit of a daze, as if I'd eaten a bucketful of food seasoning. My blogger pal, Carlo summed up what I felt when he said he needed Simeco for the brain. The mild mental indigestion was well worth it though because the bootcamp drove home what I really need to do first, that is, identify what I truly want to do online.
Carlo has an advantage over me because he knows where he wants to go and only needs to review the strategies Toral taught to make a headway. I, on the other hand, am totally clueless, so I shall have to remain an incredible slug until I figure out this first crucial step.
If you want to take the journey to becoming a digital influencer too, you can check out Toral's online bootcamp and if you already know what you want to do, you'll only need half a dosage of Simeco.
