My name is Wilson Lau and I am from Singapore, a small country and yet high living standards. Ever since we are born, we listen to what other people say, what our parents say and whenever we do things that oppose their decision, it is deemed as the wrong thing.
I have to say that the decision to focus on building my own online empire is not easy. Firstly, in my country, we are always following what people are doing and what most people are doing is actually focusing all of their efforts on studying the stuffs that they don’t like, get a cert,a job and get married. They complain, they rant, they whine, they don’t like it but what is the main reason that motivates them to keep on? Their parents! Mine does that as well and I really don’t see the point of doing the things I hate so when I entered my polytechnic(which is known as college in other countries), I didn’t really focus my time on studies. Yes, I know it’s a risk, in fact, it’s a high risk.
Instead,I decided to spend most of my efforts going to my school library to read up on wealth, motivation, personal development books to change my mindset. I have to say those books have a really great impact on me and it have totally transformed my thinking and I got addicted to those books. I start to feel the hunger of learning new stuffs that are related to that. Got very interested in how our brains actually works, the power of laws of attractions, how visualization actually works and how to manifest the power of our thoughts. I find this really fun to learn and afterall, it’s an organ that we can’t really see. That’s why Abundance Brains is founded. I do not have the time to fully focus on that first but I will be working on that once my cpa business is getting stable. Till now, I still did not regret the decision that I have made because I got to learn a lot of things that my parents and schools didn’t taught me and that is manifesting our thoughts and make it into a reality.Definitely there are things that are beyond our control but still, we are still able to achieve alot of things and that’s more than enough for us.
It doesn’t feel good when my parents don’t understand what I am really going through, i maybe facing on my computer only but actually a lot of thinking and strategy needed to be done. Sometimes, it’s seemed like I am actually opposing them but I know once I made it, they will be convinced that all the efforts I have put in is going to be worth it.I am really grateful to them for bringing me up but that doesn’t mean I should listen to you just because you don’t like that idea of me doing things that no one in the family have done it?
I have been embarking the journey on internet marketing on the year 2011. During that year, I spent my time reading tons of personal development,business and wealth books to transform my mindset to someone that does not make decisions based on fear and wanting to move out of my comfort zone. At the same time, I happened to discover internet marketing through the books that I have read, feeling curious on how the business works, I decided to spend time researching and analyze how all the business models works Even till now, I am still spending time to read to educate myself because I strongly believe that reading can help to improve the creativity and also to stretch the potential of our brains. Learning had become part of my lifestyle and I really enjoy learning.
In 2012, I have decided to start list building and I spent around 10 months of hardwork creating blogposts and do lots of free traffic generation. However, things does not go as well as I planned so I decided to leave it aside and focus on running CPA offers. Also, I have get to know quite a number of local internet marketers through the social power of facebook and some of them are successful, that made me even have more belief in my business because if they can do it, so can I.
I have to say this journey isn’t easy and smooth although it may just seem that I am working on my business from home. But well, it’s very mentally tiring when you face lots of setbacks in front of the computer. Things isn’t that easy as most people seem. A lot of hard work,time and money must be invested in as well, and it will be harder because we tend to lose focus when we are at home and we are feeling really comfortable.
In 2013, I have managed to run several CPA offers and so far, I am seeing progress although it has ups and downs, still it’s considered progress to me. I will be going right into mastering paid traffic sources and discover the art of ad copywriting. This shall be my main focus and I will share all the case studies and split testing that I have done, which means I will share my success and failures in this blog as well.
