Is it A Storm in a Coffee Cup !!! Or a detour in the right direction ???
Do you know the story of Howard Swartz
Who Remembers Blockbusters?
Did You know the founder of Netflix approached Blockbusters with his vision of a video streaming service
They turned him down
He even went back a second time and gave them another opportunity
They still turned him down again
He went ahead anyway
Howard Swartz loved the Company Starbucks and wanted to work for them and at 29 his dream finally came true when he was employed as Director for Marketing & Sales
On a trip to Italy Swartz fell in love with the Cafe lifestyle and approached the then owners who at the time sold beans and coffee grinders and coffee related items but not skinny cappuccino
They decided not to deploy his vision so he left and opened his own cafe inlign with his Vision of people sitting somewhere leisurely meeting friends and family, watching the world go by etc
Starbucks went into decline and Howard Swartz bought the company for $3.8 Million Dollars and implemented his original Vision he’d pitched previously to the original owners but now as The actual owner
The other night I watched a film with Adam Sandler and my partner said “What happened to Adam Sandler? I saw somewhere recently he is worth over $700 but I haven’t seen him in any films lately. How is he worth that much?”
My initial response was “My guess is he has created other income streams like a production company” this initiated me to do a little research and coincidentally found he had signed a multiple million dollar 3 film deal with netflix and indeed does have a production company called Happy Madison
Many Years ago I approached my then bosses with ideas that I had and they were also turned down only to be implemented later and them taking the credit for them in a couple of my cases
Yes that was frustrating but now I see it as a gift
They implemented those ideas after I had left the Company’s
If they had taken me up on my ideas I may have stayed in those roles and not be where I am today
Where I am now today is believing that what these Gentleman above had is what is “Inspired Action” and the people who they pitched to couldn’t see or appreciate what was being pitched to them because it wasn’t given to them
It wasn’t their vision to see so they couldn’t appreciate the value being shared with them
Plus, by not appreciating that Vision set these Gentleman on a Journey to build what they were actually meant to build in the way they were meant to build it
By being turned down it was Obstacles in the Right Direction
Earlier this year I was building something I initially thought I was supposed to build and kept hitting roadblock after roadblock
I Am aware enough now to think “OK, what is this trying to tell me” but despite this it still took me a while to wake up to what I was supposed to be doing
I believe we ALL have these Divine Download Inspired Actions
I believe We all have gifts to share with the world
Regardless of Age
And now is no better time
For two reasons
- Now is no better, easier, cheaper time to set up a business online and multiple streams of income based around our gifts and inspired ideas (& I can even show people how to do it for zero).
- It is essential Now more than ever to create multiple streams of income because the world of work has shifted so much tomorrow is not guaranteed that we will have a job or traditional business
A few months ago I was unexpectedly visited by an ex-colleague who was on furlough.
Only two days later I was contacted by another colleague who wanted to purchase one of my products and during that conversation they told me that that colleague and one of those bosses who had taken my idea for themselves had been fired.
The first round of furlough was coming to an end and they had both been laid off before it ended. The company probably seeing they would have to start paying their salary again and realising they actually managed without them I am assuming decided they were no longer required
In actuality furlough was actually extended but to late for them … boom 💥 no more job !!
Only 48 hours earlier my ex-colleague was discussing how they disliked their job and was not wanting to return with full belief there was a job to return to
My guess with the ex-boss from what I knew about them, they foresaw seeing their days out in that business. Imagine the shock they felt. Especially after furlough was extended. What a kick in the teeth 😱
We cannot rely on one stream of income anymore if we want financial security but also at the same time …..
This is an incredible time to leverage what is going on in the world
The message I was trying to share in 1999 as I completing my Higher Education in Art about taking time for yourself and appreciating life to minimise stress, people weren’t getting but since the Global Pandemic and Lockdown people more and more are evaluating life and seeing it is precious and don’t want to do the things they hate anymore and want more quality time with loved ones and wake up happy which “Not” Coincidentally is the name of the domain name to get a free copy of my life changing Morning Routine at mywakeuphappy.com because I Am Now on a Mission to help as many people as possible Wake Up Happy so that’s why I give it away
It’s also no coincidence my first subscription episode of my Podcast “The Fab Over Forty Show” is called “Tomorrow is Not Guaranteed”
I believe we All have something we are Passionate about and there are also others in the 7 Billion plus people on the planet that also love that thing but …….
You are a couple steps ahead of them and they would love to accelerate their learning and experience on that subject to enhance Their life Experience whatever it is and would love to learn from “YOU”
So my question to “YOU” is ……..
What Inspired Action Ideas have you had that the world needs to know about ???
Hey !! I mean it !! Write anything that popped in to Your head down right now !!
When “YOU” create a Product or Service based around something “You” Love and others Love to …. “YOU” are not selling ….
“YOU” are serving !!!
You are sharing Your Gifts that YOU are Destined to Share to the People You are Destined to Serve
Talking of which …..
I had so many people coming to me saying I was so Lucky Doing What I Love and Loving What I Do and that they wish they could do what they love and asking for advice and again
Wanting people to Wake Up Happy I was giving away loads of advice for nothing in return but I realised one day when ……
I was having all these roadblocks and obstacles …
That was utter madness and when I woke up to the fact that I am actually good at this stuff that I thought I was only learning to enhance my own skills and expertise for my business.
Why am I giving it away?
I had an idea to use a Training Tool I learned from a multiple 7 figure earners Inner Circle I am part of and adapted it to help my Network Marketing Team “The Freedom Empire Builders” to work out Their own individual Passion and Niche to build Their Freedom Empire Business on.
I could actually share it to these people who come to me for help to tap back into to what they love most and show them how they can monetise it for a small nominal fee (I’m also on a mission to Teach a different way to build a Freedom Creating Network Marketing Multifaceted Passion Based Business and Brand using intuition and The Law of Attraction to align, not Hustle)
That way I serve these people, utilise my time sensibly to be able to focus on my income producing tasks and make a small income at the same time from the skills I invested hundreds of hours and hundreds of dollars/pounds in
I had the Inspired Idea to stop what I was building and create a whole Digital Asset around this Tool which I now call The Fabulous Freedom Passion Finder and I have still kept it at this nominal fee but now I have added hundreds of dollars worth of bonuses at no extra cost to ensure people have everything they need to work out what they Love to do most and then teach them how they can turn that into an Online Location Free Passion Based Business
Why I Am Focused on helping people particularly but not exclusively over 40 to create Location Free Businesses is another story for another time and posted elsewhere
Since those Inspired Ideas have come I have had so many others like creating a subscription model called The Law of Attraction Lovers Club and so much more and more ideas come in all the time but first you have to take one Inspired Action step and I trust more and more will come once You say yes to Your Universal Given Gifts
I AM Passionate about helping brainstorming out those Gifts but At the present moment I only give 121 Coaching even though I Am a Qualified Advance Life Coach and Advance Law of Attraction Practitioner to the people in The Freedom Empire Builders because my Vision is creating Digital Assets that help people do that for themselves, that I can set and forget and create Multiple Income Streams so I can have my own personal Location Freedom Lifestyle and Live Life on My Terms
I would love You to become a part of The Freedom Empire Builders and help You Brainstorm out what that looks like for You and believe it or not you can access that for around £29/$29 including my Coaching if You become an Associate or even zero if you sell a couple items of dead stuff on Facebook Market Place, Vinted etc that are laying around the house and have a business in as little as a weekend or less with a beautiful fully functioning website. Amazing Training and access to some incredible award winning Health & Wellness products for wholesale prices instead of retail
but if that is not something You feel is for You right now I totally get it but I would love it if you keep tapping in to my free content on my blog and other platforms or you could grab that tool I mentioned above for just $7 just to test out what You love to do most and set those wheels in motion for Inspired Ideas to start Divinely downloading and for possibly multiple streams of income to manifest and you can grab that no.

You maybe wondering what this post has to do with the Law of Attraction, after all I call myself #theloalover. Am I just trying to sell you something ?
Please read below and you will understand my true Purpose of why I post, podcast and write about stuff like this
At a very young age I wanted to become an Entrepreneur even before I knew what one was
Then in 2010 (in my Forties) after a series of spooky events I came across the book The Secret based on The Law of Attraction and in that book and the film version I resonated to Bob Proctor and encouraged by Bob I created a Goal card and manifested my first business
I also learnt from Bob the term Multiple Streams of Income
What I have learnt over the years even if not deliberately labelling it or even consciously knowing it the many successful people use The law of Attraction or Deliberate Creation to consciously attract and manifest the businesses and lifestyle most people dream about
Over the years I have also seen and become aware to have freedom and dream lifestyles, that won’t be obtained from 1 salary or one source of income and we need MIS’s or Multiple Income Streams as Bob mentioned and that’s why I Am Passionate about sharing a message of using The Law of Attraction to attract and create a lifestyle to Wake Up Happy for and create income streams based around what people most love to do to create time, location and financial freedom
After Years of People Pleasing because of my subconscious programming and putting other people’s needs over mine and feeling thoroughly miserable to boot by implementing Inspired Action steps gained from studying the Law of Attraction I finally created a life I woke up happy and more importantly excited for and because of this I know what is possible for other people aw well
But even more importantly to me is I see and hear so many people, particularly Women think that it is not possible because they are to old and again
I Am on a Mission to prove that is just a myth
We are NEVER to old and it is NEVER to late
I actually attracted my dream of Entrepreneurship and MIS’s in my 50’s and I have learned all the tech stuff and continue to do so nearing my 60’s and I see many, many, many women particularly in the Online Business Network Marketing space literally crushing it on TikTok etc which incidentally is actually intentionally gearing itself for business people so if you remain open minded and don’t dismiss anything for its potential the opportunities are unlimited
I started writing this blog post on a Saturday while attending an “Online Recurring Income Summit” enthused by the potentials out there and then because of some news that has convinced me we are heading for another Lockdown in the UK and wanting to help people see the possibilities of creating an online business and the need for MIS’s and then whilst doing some online Omnipresent Training I set myself some challenges to create a TikTok video and a podcast short every day
Once we step out of our comfort zone we soon stretch that muscle memory to become our new comfort zone but first we have to start
What obstacles are in Your life right now that are actually gifts in disguise saying “You are out of alignment with Your Higher Purpose. Go this way”
Grab a Journal and start free writing whatever comes to mind
Not in a position to journal right this moment? Set an alert on Your Smartphone to revisit this at a more suitable time and Journal when more appropriate
Purely setting the intention and the alert is an Inspired Action step within it self
You’re moving forward towards Your Dreams Baby !!!
Thanks for taking the time to read this blog. I know it is a bit longer than normal but that’s because I think it is such an important subject, especially at this moment in time to appreciate the importance of tapping in to what we love most and sharing our gifts with the world and protecting ourselves with Multiple Sources of Income based around our own personal Purpose
Have an awesomely attractive day and if you do check out my TikTok videos @alisonkparsons and, or post cast shorts at The Fab Over Forty Show I would love you to leave a comment and let me know that you came over because of this blog post and anything it inspired YOU to do ……. regardless of age !!!!
