It’s My First Birth-Day!

Birthday Cake

Sixteen years ago today, I gave birth and became a Mom for the first time.

It had been an easy pregnancy. I only got sick twice–once when I ate too many mangoes and then bent over and squished my tummy, LOL!

The birth itself was easy peasy. After a short labor on my last day at work, my baby birthed herself. I didn't have to push at all.

The nurses thought I was getting hysterical because I didn't have any pain relief, but it was really because I could feel my baby coming–and I wasn't in the “delivery” room yet!

My 7-pound baby slipped out of me like a wet fish. My ob-gyn didn't make it on time. The resident simply sat in front of me to catch the baby.

At the same time my baby was born, a dream was born as well… a dream to someday continue sharing my gifts with the world without sacrificing my physical presence with my family.

I didn't hate my job at UNICEF. In fact, it was a dream job: I was getting paid well while helping the weakest, the most defenseless, and the poorest–the underprivileged children of the world.

And yet, every time I went to the office, my heart broke. I was spending very few hours a day with my baby awake. I prayed hard and made many plans to eventually become a stay-at-home Mom.

Finally, in 2008, everything fell into place.

A Dream Is Born

It took 14 long years for my dream to come true. It isn't always easy. I often have to do scary things, uncomfortable things, things that open me up to criticism and rejection.

But every single day I thank God, because I'm living my dream. My life has changed beyond recognition and it's wonderful!

The best part is, I'm helping other idealistic, talented individuals reach their own dreams… for autonomy, creative freedom, and financial success.

Because you're reading this, I know you have this dream too.

I would consider it a privilege if I could help you achieve your dream.

You're Invited

This is why, starting October 12, I'm going to be giving a small group of idealistic dreamers a series of eclasses about how to harness the power of the Internet to find more buyers for their products and services.

This eclass is specifically for self-employed professionals, authors, coaches and other solopreneurs who've been struggling to make sense of social media marketing to find more customers.

It's for those who want a simple but systematic, no-fluff approach to promoting their products and services on the web.

If this is you, then I invite you to look at what I've put together.

Normally, I wouldn't want you to jump through hoops to do this, but I don't want you to miss out on Ronnie's irresistible bonus.

If you have any questions about the eclass, feel free to post them in the comments below.

PS: The eclass comes with ecoaching and a 60-day unconditional guarantee. Plus, the price is so ridiculously low that Ronnie called me “crazy.” Crazy or not, I just don't want price to be an issue–if you feel that this is right for you. Read this and decide.
