[01:46] Feeling Out of Place: 

  • Many people feel out of place when starting something new, whether it’s in a new country, a new school, or a new industry like online business.
  • Igor discusses a deep-seated feeling of not fitting in, particularly during his school years after immigrating.
  • Turning to online gaming provided a sense of belonging and community that was not based on physical appearance or social skills. 
  • Being active online helped him build his social reputation and value differently online, which also helped him later in his business.
  • Despite being inspired by prominent online marketers like Frank Kern, Ryan Deiss, and others, Igor felt disconnected and doubted his ability to achieve similar success. 
  • This sense of not belonging made it difficult for him to take decisive steps forward.

  • His success began slowly, with initial periods of uncertainty and lack of direction.
  • Small victories and gradual earnings growth helped build Igor’s confidence in his abilities.
  • Hitting financial targets like making $10,000 a month changed how he saw himself and made him feel part of the online marketing community.

[04:20] Self-Permission

  • The concept of self-permission, underscores the crucial role in his transition from being an outsider to an active online entrepreneur. 
  • People often wait for external approval like school grades or job promotions to feel capable, but in entrepreneurship, traditional forms of validation are missing.
