3 Reasons Why I Love Helping Others

When I first started my business back in 2015, the initial reason was to start building so I could work from home. Although, sometimes plans don’t go as we expect and sometimes plans will change.

During the building of my business, I started to realize how much I enjoyed helping others with the blogs and websites. I remember back to 2010 when I first started blogging and wish that I had someone to point me in the right direction. However, I didn’t. What I learned was through trial and error. One of the best ways that I can learn.

Fast forward to 2017 and I am ecstatic about helping others. Many of my clientele are new to blogging and WordPress. As I create the vision they want for their website, I’m also creating video to show the step by step how to do certain tasks. I don’t want my client’s to be dependant on someone for the rest of their blogging career. Whatever they can learn to do on their own will make them that much better.

3 Reasons Why I Love Helping Others

 

Let’s take a look at Why I love helping others.

Having a Client Who is Elated with the Completed Project

Making someone happy because you created what they saw in their head is a great feeling. Although I don’t Skype with my clients, I can feel their enthusiasm via our emails and text conversations. Client Testimonials are key in any business so if you can get them, do it! Just knowing that I put a smile on just one client’s face is definitely worth it.

Teaching a Client

Like I said previously, showing the client how to do something on their website is a huge in my book. If a client asks, I will do it for them, however, I also want them to learn how to do for themselvesย if they are willing. My client’s don’t always want to know how because they would rather focus on the business side of their blog with content and networking versus the backend stuff. Because of these tedious tasks, I offer a Monthly Blog Management Service which allows the client to not worry about maintenance, customizations, etc. They entrust their blogs/websites with me and simply ask questions along the way.

Doing Something I’m Passionate About

I’m a firm believer in you live a happier life when you are doing something you’re passionate about. I enjoy my side-hustle. I love being creative. It gives me a great sense of achievement knowing that I’m basically 100% self-taught and I’m kicking it! Allowing my passion to flow to someone’s website or blog is in itself, a Win-Win situation.

    HI Bren,

    First congrats on your success and it’s all through being self-taught. I think it’s great that you want to teach your clients how to do things on their own. I think every blogger should at least learn the basics.

    Like you said if they choose not to learn the basics, then you can manage it for them. That’s awesome. I wish when I got started with WordPress years ago, someone offered to do small tasks for me.

    I am familiar with all the bloggers that you mention in your post and read all of their blogs and follow them. You’re definitely right, it’s important to pay attention to the types of people that we follow.

    Thanks for sharing this and I have no doubt that your WordPress business will continue to grow.

    Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚

    Susan

      Hi Susan,

      Thank you so much! I do take pride in everything that I have taught myself and what I have picked up from the “pros”, like yourself.

      I’ve had clients, who are still clients, that do not feasibly have the time to do some of the maintenance and management, nor do they want to be bothered. I’m happy to provide that to them as a service and one they can easily afford. It means a lot to me to assist them so they can focus on more important things.

      I see that we hang in a similar circle of Influencers and Entrepreneurs so I’m sure you have learned a thing or two from them as well.

      I appreciate you sharing with us, Susan! By the way, I saw your new free service on your website! You go girl!

    Hi Bren, it’s amazing to see how you have come a long way since the beginning days of blogging. I remember, you, Cori, Ravi and myself when we all first started blogging. All of our blogs and focuses have changed over time.
    I have learned so much from all of you. Recently Ryan’s eBook on how to create an eBook really helped me out. I’ve learned many things about making money via Cori. Ravi is a technical whiz who shares all about WordPress -and you know I don’t like that technical stuff!
    And you Bren keep me on my toes with all your changes and creativity. I really admire that about you – you are not afraid to try anything!
    You’ve helped me a lot over time with images and keeping a little consistency at my blog. Thank you so much!
    It really shows that you love what you do know and you truly enjoy helping others.

      Hey Lisa,

      I think it’s pretty dang amazing myself, but to hear it from Influencers like yourself, means that much more. Thank you! Yes, I’ve learned so much from these folks as well. Can you remember how many times I went back to Blogspot and WordPress.com with blogs? Oy vey! But on the bright side, it allowed me to learn the skills I needed to be able to offer them to those who don’t have the knowledge yet.

      Anytime you need my help, you should know this, just holler. We may have to get a few more graphics together sometime. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for sharing with us, Lisa! You’re still my Twitter Queen!

    Hi Ben, nice article. The only way we can grow is by helping others. If I want to earn billion dollar I need to help others to earn million. This is what I believe and work to fulfill it. Producing educative content actually help us in many ways. It help us educate our clients / leads. It help us get more traffic and social signals and at the end help us earn more money. Keep up the great writing.

      HI Nahid,

      That’s very true, my friend. I’m glad to hear you practice similar techniques! We must remember to keep ourselves humble and remember where we came from. Everyone starts out at one time or another. Keeping ourselves grounded and able to help those newer folks, makes us more valuable.

      Great to see you here! Thanks for your comment.

    Hey Bren,

    What a surprise.:)

    I am glad to see my name here. Helping others has always been a motive of mine. Lisa, Donna, Ryan, Cori and many other bloggers are there who spread their words of wisdom to help others.

    I like it when someone says thank you after finding the solution to their problems. Sharing my experience is something I always prefer.

    Thanks a lot for the mention.

      Hey Ravi,

      It should be no surprise. You should know how much I admire your skills and talents. I’m always reading, bookmarking, and implementing your tutorials and tips.

      A simple “Thank you” can go a long way, no? I can’t not mention you when I speak of WordPress experts. I truly admire how far you’ve come and how you are growing your business. Very admirable, my friend. Keep up the great work and sharing the knowledge!

    Hi BREN,

    I believe that helping others is helping yourself.

    Yes, learning to do things ourselves is better than depending on others.

    All your favorite entrepreneurs do the same thing as you – they help others.

    I also love to help others. It’s the trait that make us humans. Animals live for their own, but human beings live for their own as well as others.

    I will tweet your post.

    Thanks a lot for sharing.

    Hi Bren,

    I first want to give you a virtual hug for the mention!

    Helping others is a great feeling. Also teaching them something and watching them grow is amazing. You are a caring person by nature so of course your business will thrive. You have an amazing amount of creativity and strength to make your business prosper.

    When it comes to “attraction marketing” you are tops. You are always sharing and girl you came a long way!

    I always look forward seeing you and your fur babies on Facebook. I think that’s how we met.

    -Donna

    Hey Bren!

    Making my way around blogs I’ve missed this past week. Thanks so much for the shout out girl! I really appreciate the love. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s funny how our blogs have changed over the years but what remains is the passion to help others. For me it’s not about the money – or I would have quit a long time ago. It’s more about helping people. Like you, I get a rush when a client is excited about his or her new journey and to be a part of that is a great feeling. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You mentioned my favorite bloggers – each one of them have helped me and I could never thank them enough. And you’re one of my favorite peeps too. The way you grab life by the balls is awesome. You jump in and swim without testing the water while I’m dippin’ my toes to check if it’s too cold or hot, LOL.

    I love your passion for helping others gf and it shows!

    Great post gf!

    I couldn’t agree with your more Bren. Doing something you’re passionate about is the foundation of living a joyful, happy life. It’s essential!

    I started my blog and my freelance career for many good reasons. Along the way, I have realized why helping others is so important. I have become a firm believer that if you concentrate more on helping others and less on the money, it will free you up to have more money. Interesting how that works!

      Hi Benjamin,

      I’m glad you can relate to my passion! I admire folks like you that start a business for one reason and then realize there are so many more important reasons why what you are doing is essential for other people.

      I appreciate you taking time to comment. Have a fab day!

      Bren
