August 2014 I joined the Six Figure Mentors as a mature student ( age 48 ), with 31 years Information Technology ( Programmer, Tester and Manager of Software creation ) behind me and endless new horizons ahead of me…
I’ve been Masterminding with Jay Williams of the SFM and Amazon fame, you can find is awesome training in all manner of subjects on Youtube as Jay Williams TV…
Jay does a periodic review of what he has learnt and accomplished and liked the idea, so I borrowed it 🙂 ( I did tell him )..
So what have I learnt and accomplished since joining the SFM and DEA?
This is in no real particular order, just as I remember it…
How to create a domain in the SFM backoffice under the hosting called DBL.
How to create a WordPress website and setup as my Authority site, another as my Blog and another as my advertising and Adwords (Google) and Facebook, Twitter Compliant site
How to create an advert for Facebook and run it to an audience interested in learning digital marketing and affiliate marketing
How to create a video advert for Youtube and target my audience
How to create and edit videos (in iMovie on MAC) and produce content that helps business owners and members of the SFM and DEA
How to Read again (this blog notes some of the many books I’ve read in last year ) and to use audio books ( great to listen to when travelling )
How to Learn again
That the SFM and DEA Community is full of interesting, friendly, helpful people all striving to be the best version of themselves
That I love Podcasts, I especially love the Satoriprime ones
That I really enjoy web design and the technology side of this business
That I have come a very long way on the marketing side of my business from 0 to 7 out of 10 I’d say… More to learn and implement
That you must LISTEN fully and not run off and do what you think you should do – follow the Blueprint to success, much like a road to success, stay on the path and do not wander off….. !!
That once you have listened carefully and fully that you MUST take ACTION, it won’t do it itself, much like when you sit in a car and drive you do the pedals, gears and move the steering wheel and look where you are going and gone…. do them all in your business too, take 100% responsibility for all parts of it..
Outsource the bits you would prefer not to do, but learn them first so you know what you expect from the person you outsourced to.
IMPLEMENT; make sure you Listen – Learn – Implement, taking action is great but ensure it’s the right action and that would be to implement what you have been taught.! Simple really…
I’ve learnt that taking daily action in the right direction will eventually lead to success.
Mindset!; I wondered what that meant and I’ve been learning from Satoriprime all about Mindset and completed the 10 day challenge that “puts you on a path to more fulfillment, time, money and happiness” and the Mindfluence course ( which is a MUST if you want to know yourself ) and more recently the boys “Ilan and Guy Ferdman” have found their calling as Personal Development coaches and I’m loving the self-discovery.
I’ve created numerous websites, some in the Niche of the Equestrian World, where my Wife (Emma) and I have our competition passion, Emma and her horse Floss compete at Dressage and we are coining ourselves as “Equipreneurs”
I have my own Youtube channel “Kevin Paul Humphrey Channel” which has both Business and Equipreneurial video content, the idea is to assist the small business world with video content and SFM and DEA members and entertain the Equestrian world with some horse videos.
I have accomplished the amazing feat of leaving the corporate world and starting my own business in my name, I am Founder of Kevin Paul Humphrey Limited and the company has been running since 31st October 2014, so just over a year.
I have an accountant and just submitted my first ‘Accountancy’ documentation to HMRC 🙂
I have been to VEGAS on a GOLD DEA training course for two days and flew by helicopter into the Grand Canyon 🙂 totally amazing
I’ve worked at home since 2nd March 2015 as the boss 🙂 and love it

I discovered Juicing and the Nutribullet and lost 10 KG ( though as I type I need to be good again as been a bit lax with the exercise recently and the weights coming back on fast ….. time to exercise more again 🙂 )
I found a love for challenges 🙂 The SFM and DEA have them to help you keep up motivation as you learn the art of marketing and I’ve been in;
The 90 Day Video Challenge – great to hone your skills in a video – LOVE IT…
The 90-day post MOM UK Challenge for Health, Business and Relationships and this group, coined by Jay Williams as Team Elite, is the Greatest bunch of people you could ever wish and have the privilege to met, much like the SFM and DEA Community – all awesome people
And numerous other sales challenges and this time I’m doing well as on the leaderboards 🙂 – 3rd place currently for Apps and 5th for Members
I have attended two MOM UK ( Momentum days at Heathrow) – where the SFM community met in person and have an awesome day of presentations and a few drinks at the bar later
I learn something every day and hunger for knowledge
I do not think I know enough yet
I have members join the SFM through my adverts and I love that I was the one that set them on the path to the greatest version of them and love it when I get emails saying thank you 🙂
And the journey continues…..
