IBCX Update

It’s amazing how nearly a month has gone by since my last post.

I am trying hard to be consistent, but the end of term is always busy for teachers and at the end of the year there is lots of paperwork to complete.

However, alongside all my offline duties I have also been busy online. My last post was about the new coaching course – Internet Business CodeX– set up by my friends Garry Parkes and Gary Simpson.

I joined this coaching along with my husband and we are now busy getting to know the other members of the course. I can already see that even though I have been working on my online business for over two and a half years, I still have lots to learn, but most importantly, to put into practice.

This is something that I know I have not been very good at. I am great at learning and really enjoy exercising the grey matter, however on a practical level I often become stuck, almost afraid to try something out. I know that “there are no mistakes, only learning opportunities” and I am determined to prove that right by getting off my backside and doing something about it.

So back to the course.

Much of it so far is information I already know because I have been around for a while. However, it is always good to have a refresher, not only because things can and do change quickly in this fast-moving world of the internet, but also I often find that I have missed out on something, which might be quite small, but could make a difference to what I am doing.

So, I intend writing here about my continuing journey to find a system of working that is right for me.

  • It has to be completely ethical – one of my main reasons for procrastination so far has been because I have been uncomfortable with many of the suggested ways of making a living online.
  • It has to be one that I can fit in around an already incredibly busy life – I’m happy to give up some things if I can work on my business, but there is still so much else that needs to be done on a regular basis and won’t happen if I have shut myself away in front of my computer!
  • Most of all it has to be enjoyable – it shouldn’t be too much like work, though of course there will always be those things that have to be done that we are not so keen on
  • .

How does the Internet Business Codex course fit into this?

Well so far I have found:

  • 2 really helpful, honest and knowledgeable mentors in the ‘2 Gs’.
  • A set of well-structured, well-written and easily understandable webinars, Question & Answer sessions, videos, written information and helpful websites and tools.
  • Most importantly, an active and friendly forum for members where no question is too silly to ask, but everyone is really helping one another and we can all learn from the experience and knowledge of the other members. I’ve learnt lots already.

As you can tell, I am really pleased to be involved in this course and can highly recommend it.

Although it is currently closed to new members, it is possible for you to access the blog which was begun before the course opened initially and continues to be a source of information.

Even better, if you sign up on the waiting list, you will get a weekly series of useful tips by email (and they really are useful, not just a quick sentence), so that you can learn about the type of information you get as a member.

Yes, any links here are my affiliate links, but then again I am proud to be associated with this excellent training and would highly recommend it to you. You won’t be disappointed.

If you have a look at this, please do come back and let me know what you think about it or feel free to ask me any questions that you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Hilary

    As a fellow member of IBCX I have just come to read your blog and I can see how happy you are that you are doing this course.
    I have been on courses previously but I would say this is the best I have seen. I really love the internet and gave up my full time job to learn more – and I know we are all going to master this course.

    Thanks Sue

    I totally agree with you that this is the best course that I have seen too. That’s not to say that I haven’t learnt from other courses as well, but I like the whole feeling about this one and the way in which it is presented.

    We are all individuals with very differing backgrounds, yet it is all laid out for us to understand in bite-sized chunks. This is a real plus for busy people – that you don’t have to spend too long on any one small aspect and so lose the thread of the message if you have to go away and do something else.

    If we take each step there is no reason why any of the members should not be able to reach our individual goals with time. BUT it takes some effort and ACTION.

    I’m off to take some now.

    Hi Hilary,
    The IBCX course has given many of us a new hope for success on-line.

    The depth of information is a great thing. But it’s the support of our two
    mentors along with a dream forum that puts the course over the top.

    Where we’ll all be in 6 months or a year no one knows. But I’m thankful
    now to have the how to of possibilities right in front of me.

    I’ve enjoyed your posts and the info you shared.

    @ Rob

    I believe that it is so important to find a course, mentors and other members who resonate withour own outlook on life.

    We are all different and have our own experiences, but it is now down to us to make the most of the opportunities we have been given in this course. It is so extensive and supportive – I’m really appreciating it.
