Who is Ontarian Hawkins
My name is Ontarian Hawkins.
The Early Years
I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. My journey into entrepreneurship began somewhere in the early 2000’s. I first came across being your own boss and working on the internet in my early 20’s. I was a college student at the University of Tulsa doing some homework on the computer.
I remember sitting there thinking to myself, ‘Do people really earn money online? If so, how do I do that?’As a college student, I did ok with my grades. But my life as a child and the memories of struggle were still present. I can clearly remember being a child and asking for a candy bar in the grocery check out lane.
Childhood Struggles Opened My Eyes to Desiring Financial Freedom
She used to carry a yellow envelope in her purse, with the money she had budgeted for groceries and bills. I can remember her pulling out the envelope slowly, with hesitation to pay for things. Even though she never said a word, the anxiety in her body language and face made it very clear to me that there wasn’t enough.
Seeing my mother struggle to buy groceries and pay bills when I was a child planted a seed so DEEP in me, I decided I was going to do something different when I was older.
Dropping out of College to Pursue True Freedom
I dropped out of college because I didn’t see the point in following the ‘success blueprint’ that had been taught to me. You know, the American Dream- Go to college, get good grades and get a job in corporate America, building someone else’s dream. That didn’t appeal to me. I settled into a regular job, but I knew there was something more out there for me.
After looking around I joined a Network Marketing business in 2008. I wanted success, so I followed their blueprint. I made my list of friends and family. I attended the hotel meetings. I called, chased, and hunted everyone I knew. Why? Because that’s what I was told to do. If you’ve ever been involved with a Network Marketing company maybe you can relate.
Needless to say, it didn’t go very well for me. I did make a little bit of money, but nothing substantial. I couldn’t get any duplication going.
Network Marketing Failure Kept me Struggling
So I quit and moved onto another company. And another, and another. The first 3 years I spent a lot of money on starting new business ventures, only to end up failing. They all presented the same problem: nobody was able to duplicate and as a result they dropped out. It seemed like this was a good plan for a few but was too difficult for the other 97%. By this time my friends & family were tired of hearing about the latest and greatest business deal I was in.
I knew there was a piece or two missing, but I wasn’t ready to give up. I needed some change in my life, so I got my CDL license and drove a truck all over the country. During this time, I focused on learning as much about marketing as I could. The psychology behind it, how to identify your target market, funnels, capture pages…you name it. Then I joined a group focused on mindset and marketing, and that’s when things started to change for me. Through this group I met my mentors Diane Hochman and Joe Schroeder.
My Attraction Marketing Breakthrough
I took a break from actively marketing a business, and learned how to attract business. That was an important mindset shift.
Instead of hunting for prospects, I delved in deep to learn how to become the hunted.
About a year into driving a truck, I was itching to get off the road. I missed my family and friends. I only had one day a week off and worked very long days. I took a job back home with the intention of freeing up more of my evening time and planning my financial freedom. For the next year, I worked tirelessly on my plan, soaking up every piece of information I could on how to create a passive income online. And I did it. I freed myself from the chains of bondage. Now, I am here to show you how to do the same if you are willing to make a few mistakes and commit to your freedom.
My purpose for Creating this Website is to share what I have learned in my trials so you can implement only what works.
You deserve financial and time freedom and to live the BLESSED Live You Deserve!
