MY STORY AND WHAT I STAND FOR
Entrepreneur And Founder
WHO IS ERIKA LINDSTROM
Yes, that is the big question here. Do you know who you are? Let me tell you, I just started my journey to find out:
- Who am I?
- What are my values in life?
- What will make me feel fulfilled?
- What would I do if I had 10 million dollars on my account today?
- Which people would I prefer to spend my time with?
Here´s a little bit of my background:
I´m a mother of 3 children. Two of them are teenagers and will leave home in the next few years, and then I also have a little boy, just started school. For so many years my identity has been that I´m a mother.
After child leave for my second child, I started a 2-year education full-time. I decided that I would really go for it, finally doing something for my self, so I studied every day, and after putting the children to bed, I stay up until really late, reading and preparing for the next test. This got me to be nr 1 top student in the program, but I sacrificed my family and my self. Actually, I was not a nice person at all; I did whatever it took to get my good grades, not thinking about others at all!
This got me into a divorce and I moved into a home that my children and I hated and never felt happy and safe in. But as a result of my good education and grades, I got a job as a manager for 2 stores in the same chain in Sweden. First time being a boss, not educated and experienced at all for such a task, but I did it anyway somehow.
Years went on and I did my career as a store manager! I started my own businesses, for example, I had 2 franchise-stores in two different cities and drove between them. During this period of my life, I also meet my big love and married him! We got a 3: rd child together. Actually, we got married just 2 weeks after my opening of my first store. I planned our child to be born between my high seasons just to be able to work as much as possible. After childbirth I was back to work in just 6 days, putting my baby on the desk beside my computer when slept and breastfeed him while doing the salaries for my staff. This was a really crazy time in my life.
After a few years I ran 2 stores, and Internet businesses on the side. One Internet business I sold, the other one made me bankrupt!
Finally, I got to the top of the career as a store manager! I got a prestigious job starting up a brand new store for a very well known chain in Sweden. This was the job most people in the business just could dream of. I got a good salary and life was supposed to be wonderful.
BUT, I miscalculated one thing….I thought that if I could get our ( in my mind it was our store, but the staff thought of it as mine apparently) store to rank as a top store within the chain, we all would feel proud and successful. I was wrong! The better rank we´ve got, the more envy I created. My goal was to create a team that worked together and a spirit that someone always held our back. Instead, I got a knife on my back! My new boss didn´t like me, and no one had the guts to stand up for me! Either they didn´t like me, or they were too afraid to be exposed as a troublemaker in front of our new boss. I don´t know until this day.
These experiences at work added tons of stress and anxiety.
- I couldn’t sleep at night anymore
- My body ached everywhere
- I started to forget things
- I got irritated with nothing and had a very bad temper
- I lost all happiness in life
One day I was out walking and was about to cross the road. Suddenly my legs froze and I couldn´t walk anymore. I was standing in the middle of the road and didn´t remember how to walk!!! This was my first panic attack. It was also my last day at work….
I got to the doctor and got the diagnosis of out burned and deep depression. For months I didn´t get up to bed, I could barely take a shower because it was too exhausting. I did not do anything in the household, absolutely impossible to go to the grocery store because all the choices of grocery got my brain to burn and I got panic-attacks inside the store. Very frightening experience!
After 6 months of negotiating with my employer, I got my self a deal and I quit my job!
This was the day I started to recover from my depression. After a few months, I saw a Facebook ad and got caught up in the message of it. Two Swedish guys talking about Internet affiliate business and something was really different about this guys. I subscribed to get 7 videos for free, showing me how to start my own business.
From that day I never looked back anymore! My journey at SFM is more than I ever could dream of. Why?
- The community of SFM. The company culture is unique because everyone wants to help you succeed. There is always someone that has your back!
- You get help to build up your own profitable business and you decide how much time and money you put in.
- The training hold superb quality! I tell you, the best marketer in the world does these workshops, webinars, personal calls, and curriculums.
- SFM is much more than earning really big money; their leaders help you to find your own purpose and happiness. You can work in whatever area you choose. They support you and keep you on track, every single day!
So, I hope you feel you know me a little better now. Please let me give you an advice to you from my heart. If you feel that something might be missing in your life. That you want time-freedom, i.e. to afford and have enough free time to do the things that you love in life, don´t be afraid to start the same journey as I did.
If something must change in life, you must do something different. That´s scary I know, but I and SFM have your back, all the way!
My mission is to take control over my life and my happiness. I want to build up an income stream that provides me and my family a finacial security. My goal is to build up a business that I´m able to run from a computer, anywhere in the world. To be able to have the time and money freedom so that we are able to spend our lives as we choose to. For me, freedom is the most important thing. No boss, alarm clock or chasing customers and budgets for someone else's business. And I will help other people and families do the same.
To help ourselves and as many other human beings as possible, live the life we choose to live off our own will. We are already born to this wonderful universe so let's make it a ride to remember.
