Hi everyone, welcome to livingtherightway.com, where my goal is to show you how you can live the life you really want, without having to work 70 hour weeks with 2 weeks holiday per year.
A little about me. My name is Iain Stanley. I’m from Sydney, Australia, originally but for the best part of the last 20 years I’ve been travelling the world, taking in its wonders, surfing waves, and photographing everything. And now I’ve built this site to help people like you live the life you want.
If you’re a person who wants the most from life, and wants to do as much as you can in the time that you’re here, you’re in the right place.
If you’d rather pursue your passions and learn to make money from them, instead of doing them part-time and working full-time 9-5, then this site is for you.
More than ever we see in this life that we don’t know what’s gonna happen, when it’s gonna happen, where it’s gonna happen, or why it’s gonna happen.
So we need to live life the best way we can. Every single day. But if we’re slaving away in the company grind, it’s pretty hard.
And that’s why I made this site. To give you options, and show you that you can live the life you want, and make good money doing it.
This site isn’t about positive affirmations and daily meditations (not that there’s anything wrong with that), it’s about real steps you can implement to take you away from the 9-5 drudgery and into a life where you’re making money and doing what you love.
I absolutely love photography and travel, and some years ago decided that I’d really like to combine the two and create a living for myself from them both.
Have you ever done anything like that? Taken the things you enjoy doing in life and tried to turn them into an income? If you have, you’d know it’s not easy, and things don’t always go to plan.
If you haven’t, but you’ve thought about it, let me tell you it’s not easy and things don’t always go to plan!!
Very often the product or service you have is great, and the basic ideas you have about how to monetize your passions are great, but you’re just missing a few key ingredients that would turn your struggles into success.
That’s what happened to me. And has probably happened to you too.
Everyone told me how great my photography was and I was wasting myself by not turning it into a business. I even won some photography competitions, and reached the finals of some other well known ones.
So I set up my own personal website , designed it carefully and displayed my best work
I simply thought that my dreams would instantly come true and people would come running to buy my stuff.
And then I waited. And waited. And waited…….
Does this sound familiar to you?
You have a passion for something, or a product or service that you’re proud of and have tried to turn into a living?
A skill that you’re really good at and everyone said you should market and sell and turn into a business?
You’ve followed your heart, and your friends’ advice and prompting, and tried to build a new life around your skills or loves, but things just haven’t taken off the way you thought they would?
You got yourself up online, you created profiles on all the social media sites, you told all your friends about it, but it all just seemed to plateau and not really go anywhere?
Did you see other people succeeding with work you thought wasn’t really that much better than yours? And wondered where you were going wrong, or where they were going right?
And you kind of just gave up on the idea of it all and thought that you needed to be some kind of marketing guru or advertising genius to make it all work? And that you didn’t really know enough about it so you kind of just gave up?
I really hope so. I really hope this resonates with you and sounds very familiar, because you are the person I am trying to help. It’s exactly what happened to me, and why I started this blog.
I started doing research, and I started spending more and more time trying to work out a way I could earn money, so that I didn’t have to give up the dream of pursuing my passions.
And I learned about making money online. And marketing. And using the power of the internet to make money.
And it all became clear, and started falling into place.
Believe me, the internet is the future.
Seriously, think about it.
When you have a problem, where do you look first for the solution?
You ‘Google it’ right?
And when you wake up in the morning, what’s usually the first thing you do? You check your phone, right? Emails, and Facebook, and perhaps the news.
It’s all on the internet.
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, holiday bookings, car sales, clothing, how-to guides……..everything you can imagine doing, is being done on the internet.
It’s the one place that everyone goes for everything. Billions of people. Every single day.
So it makes sense that if everyone’s using the internet, then we should use it to make money, right?
And that’s what I’ve learned.
And it’s exactly what I want to help you with too.
Anyone can do it. I am part of the most amazing, helpful team who has given me so much, and allowed me to turn my passions into a lifestyle.
To enjoy each and every day.
And by doing so the changes have happened in my business too. Much for the better!!
Now my business is so much more successful than it was and my interactions with people, and engagement with people who want to buy from me and learn from me has gone to heights I didn’t think possible.
Not so long ago I was struggling to get more than 50 ‘Likes’ on my Instagram photos. Now look at these results. With Likes comes engagement, and with engagement comes sales, new leads, and better business.
I have also had my work published in numerous magazines, including Japan Travel, Not Indoors, and Panorama Magz.
These changes that I made are simple changes that you can make and implement too.
Anyone can make these changes to the way they approach and run their business. If I could do it, you can do it. It is not beyond anyone.
And even better, I am right here to help you do it. And so is my team.
I want to help you through this site. I want to help you understand how to take the fantastic product or service that you have, and:
* get it in front of more eyes
* get more people talking about it
* increase interaction with fans and potential clients and customers
* keep your customers coming back for more
* increase your fanbase and your core buyer group
* market yourself along with the best of ’em
* avoid the social media and online pitfalls I did
* see the value and power of online interaction
* know the do’s and dont’s of just about everything related to online marketing
* create a home-based business that is automated and easy to do and easy to replicate, even if you don’t have experience
