Hello Guys! My name is David Pritchard and I am a digital entrepreneur.
Does that mean I’m the most creative person on the internet? Not exactly. In my words, I am the owner of an online business that recommends valuable products & services to consumers. Not only that but I also deliver content in the hope that I can inspire and motivate people like you. I am very fortunate that I have found my path very early in my life. My mission is to reach millions of people, just like me, and provide them with the information they need to take the right steps forward.
The first 25 years of my life were very ordinary. I attended school, where I was taught the relevant skills to secure a good job in the future. I chose not to go to university but intended to join an apprenticeship until it got cancelled last minute. From that age, I spent years ‘floating’ around retail and leisure. My peak was becoming a manager in a bowling alley which really opened my eyes to the world.
However, after a couple of years dealing with the stresses of being a manager, I packed my bags and started a new job maintaining industrial sites for a small company. The job may not have been the most glorious and involved physically demanding work at times but had very little stress involved. Plus this was my first job where I worked set hours every week, compared to shift work in retail and leisure. I was able to start routines every week, spend more quality time with my wife and begin to get my life in order.
Unfortunately, years on into my new job, I began to feel trapped in this 9-5 lifestyle and discovered it wasn’t easy to just earn more money when Overtime wasn’t there. I started to understand that I was simply trading time for money and that would continue until I retired (40+ years later). So the search began. I started looking on sites like YouTube and Google for solutions to my problems.
Quickly, I realised that there was potential to start earning ‘Passive Income’ online. I switched my energy provider to ‘Bulb’ and started recommending others to do the same. For every customer who switched, I was gifted £50 by Bulb (and so was the customer). The good part: Bulb has (even at the time of writing this) one of the cheapest tariffs available. That was my first insight into affiliate marketing however I had absolutely no idea how to market.
One day whilst watching more YouTube videos, I came across an ad by Dan Holloway talking in a bar about him quitting his 9 to 5 job and living the laptop lifestyle. The ad could not have been timed better. I signed up right away with a company called ‘The Six Figure Mentors (SFM)’ which he recommended and only a couple months down the line, I am writing you this story.
After following the guidance from SFM, I was able to start my own business (ME!) and was taught how to market to the people I wanted to help, people just like me. My mindset was opened, I became stronger and I finally felt passionate about what I was achieving. I am working for myself, helping others, and gaining fulfilment with every task I do.
No matter what start you have to your life, everyone deserves to achieve their true potential. A large percentage of the world have been taught at schools, in the news or by their parents that getting a secure job in a big firm is the right path for them.
People are taught to live their lives around work and to put their jobs before their passions. Some people are seen as lucky and manage to work in a career that is fulfilling. However, the truth is most people may start out interested in their career but years later, many begin to feel trapped. They have spent years training in specific skills to now find out they have no universal qualifications for other job industries. Sadly, therefore, too many people continue unsatisfied with their lives. Fortunately, there is another way.
In the last 20 years, the world has seen tremendous development, called the ‘internet’. With endless avenues comes endless opportunities and with every year that passes there are more choices for inspired entrepreneurs to seize. Many people at this point have already replaced their boring desk job with a ‘laptop lifestyle’, allowing them to ‘log-in’ from around the world.
Frankly, who wouldn’t want to wake up to a sunny backdrop, work a couple of hours a day, then spend the remaining hours enjoying whatever they wish. Well more people than you’d probably expect. The truth is to become a digital entrepreneur takes serious dedication and countless hours of initial ground works before you even earn a penny. Many try, only to fall at the first hurdle, become demotivated, lose focus or even quit.
The ‘easy’ option is to go back to working for someone else, follow their rules, and have the security of knowing where the next paycheck will come from. But actually, is that easier? Is it easier to work 40 hours a week, plus overtime, for someone else compared to working 4 hours a week on your own business? Is it more secure to only earn money when you are at the office, instead of letting the world view your business 24 hours a day?
Anything is possible if you put your mind to it. The hardest part is usually the first 6 to 12 months but compared to 3 or 4 years at university, that seems like nothing. My biggest dream is to inspire as many people as possible to start living the lives they want to live (Lemurs are difficult to inspire!)
If you are reading this, you are probably very much like me. I won’t lie, when I first started learning about how I could become a digital entrepreneur and start my own business I was sceptical. I was scared and I almost didn’t make that crucial first step. I hope you trust me when I say I have no regrets for taking action and taking back my life. There are always going to be downs as well as ups but with a good support network and community, you can achieve everything you deserve.
