I wouldn't be able to explain to you Significant Marketer without first telling you who I am and why this website will be well worth your time.
Let me start by saying, Internet marketing presents a “wealth” of opportunities. However, what is more important than wealth is helping others realize their true potential (Significance).
Struggling and living paycheck to paycheck (Survival) is rough, I've been there.
Doing well in your business (Success) and completely forgetting those who helped you get there can lead to loneliness. I have dealt with success too.
As Job said (1:21 paraphrased), “God gives and God takes away,” but only when you get a big head.
You must remain Significant,
.. a word you will see and hear many times on this page, in published posts and in every video I upload.
Hello! It's nice to meet you..
My name is Barry Canada. I'm the husband to the very beautiful Maria Andrea and a father of 3 wonderful children (plus one on the way) – Morgan, Alexander, Alessandra and Alexandrius (T-1 and counting).
After retiring from the Army, I went back to work for the government as an Army Civilian. Although it paid well and I had additional income through my retirement from military service, it never really felt like I was making an impact on humanity, at least not the way I wanted to. It always seemed like there was so much more I could be doing…
I started to apply myself online, started connecting with others and began revisiting something I used to do many years prior – Internet Marketing.
It wasn't easy..
Web 2.0 was very different from what I learned back in the late 90's – make a list of all your friends and family and tell them all about your great business. They sign-up and you ride off into the sunset.
Create a website, past links to affiliate offers and wait for the checks in the mail. I used to love those checks in the mail.
It doesn't work that way anymore.
It requires much more than bugging your friends & family and pasting a bunch of links on a webpage.
It now requires building great relationships.
For someone like me (basement nerd), I found that really hard to do.
I struggled for many years!
Good thing I kept my day job, eh? 🙂
More about the Significant Marketer
I do this business not only for me, but also for all of the people out there who are counting on me..
for all of the people out there who also want to make a difference..
and for all of the people out there who come from similar beginnings.
I come from small [or limited] beginnings, growing up in the Projects (low-income housing), where I was placed in some very terrible and very dangerous situations for most of my youth. Through nothing but the shear blessings of God, I was able to survive those torturous and very abusive days.
Those past experiences have shaped me into the person I am today.
I'll share with you some of those experiences in future posts.
Even though life was rough when I was young, I managed to turn out okay. I have also learned to forgive those who hurt me [and others]. Forgiving them allowed me to go on with my life, and it has helped me to become a better person. It has allowed me to become more significant by sharing with others the things I have personally endured, which in times is the same as someone else out there. It inspires others, creates great rapport and leads to some great conversations.
About Becoming a Significant Marketer
Significant Marketing is a road map to becoming the very best person you can possibly be. It includes spiritual development, personality development, mindset development, wealth development and the complete understanding of the gifts and talents you possess.
In other words, before you can become a Significant Marketer, you have to become SIGNIFICANT.
And that part is really already in you. It's what Les Brown calls – Greatness.
I'll help you hone it using some of the tools that have changed me and experiences that have shaped me, if it's indeed the road you would like to travel.
