Just last week while coming back from Canada, the border crossing official asked me what I did.
What happened next will make you laugh…
Agent: What do you do?
Me: I’m an Internet Entrepreneur.
Agent: So what do you do?
Me: I turn entrepreneurs into online celebrities by building their brands and web platforms.
Agent: You talk like a bad ass.
Me: I am a badass.
Agent: Who have you made famous?
Me: You probably haven’t heard of any of them. Being internet famous is different than being Hollywood famous. You’re only known to a specific group of people.
Agent: Want to know why I asked you what you do?
Agent: Your handwriting. It’s really bad. Like a doctor’s.
Me: I know.
Agent: Marisa Murgatroyd. I’ve never seen that name before. It’s like a transformer.
Agent: I bet you’re the only one there is.
Me: Yes. I am. That comes in handy if you want to be Internet famous.
Agent: Have a nice day.
Me: (walks in the wrong direction)
Agent: Ma’am, America is that way (points straight ahead)
The truth is that your path to “Internet Famous” begins with you getting clear on what you’re about.
Your big “Why”.
And it continues through you Living Your Message — and being completely, unabashedly, authentically you.
Online, and off.
I’m going to be blogging a lot more about how to get Internet Famous over the coming weeks — so make sure to stay tuned for that. I have some powerful things to share with you.
