Industry Expert/Author of numerous training packages/publications
Over 18 Years Building Better Online Businesses
I’m Barbara Ling, Authority Building Marketer, 17+Year Innovator and a Rebounder from Ankle Fusion plus a whole heap of medical challenges. But that’s personal; professionally, I’m the author of a huge number of training packages, books and publications on how to generate a thriving business online, and an all-around Marketing Innovator.
I’m also a member of the National Association of Female Executives, the Society of Professional Journalists and the Online News Association.
Media-wise, I’ve appeared in The Wall Street Journal, CNN, Forbes and Inc. magazine, eCommerceTimes and others.
During my recovery time of 5 months from October until February, there was *0* decrease in my business (thanks to strategic planning). Throughout it all, I have continuously shared my expertise via articles like:

- Social Media History Is Being Made: Facebook’s Social Media Outrage Creates 150K “Likes” Fanpage

and hundreds more.
These are possibly the least important things you could know about me.
The most important thing is this.
I’ve been in the online marketing business since it began, and believe me, I know exactly how to generate long-term income, without using the techniques of those who trumpet, “Send me your money and I’ll sell you an impossible dream!” That’s a song and dance.
I also know that making money online… requires *courage*.
It’s scary to commit to something and dare success… or failure.
And it takes time to give yourself permission to actually *try*.
That’s okay. That’s one reason why so many people buy bright shiny objects….
It’s because it feels good to test out the waters and buy the tools. It’s like weight loss… people will buy the Infomercial DVDs or gym memberships or workout tools….
But actually putting them into practice?
That’s another entirely.
I understand that. That’s one reason why I showcase the latest and greatest new releases on my site…
I don’t judge. Everyone’s Hero’s Journey is intensely personal…. and when the time comes, you WILL take that leap of faith.
But that’s your time-table… not mine.
It simply isn’t *necessary* to venture to the Dark Side – and to my mind, it’s downright wrong. There are hundreds of routes to legitimate online businesses that support their families and business online . Those businesses are stronger, more sustainable, and they actually make more money in the long run. Plus they let you sleep soundly at night.
I call that a win.
In the past, I’ve worked one on one with clients…. my health these days, alas, doesn’t allow me to do that any more.
So instead, I simply share what goodness I can with whomever would like to learn.
On a more personal note, I love coffee, martial arts, and mastering new industries (I even became one of the foremost experts in realty without ever working as a realtor). I live with my husband, my four amazing children, my Twitter Budgies, and our two moose – I mean rescue dogs. No, I mean moose.
If you’d like to delve back into the extremely boring (and long) list of my qualifications, just keep scrolling down.
