Today we have the privilege of Interviewing Scot David Harris, the founder of Son of Mag website. It is dedicated to people who wish to earn a little extra money through passive income. Perhaps this is to supplement an income, or, people wanting to make passive income their fulltime income.
As well as this, we provide motivational material for people to get the correct positive mindset within passive income, e-commerce, and entrepreneurship. Have positive mental wellbeing within any form of business is key. We want people to find their passion as well as feel motivated on their journey.
How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey?
Our main objective is to give anyone the tools and means to create a little extra income in the easiest possible way. Helping others to reach certain goals is our motivation. Whether that be financially, or through a positive mindset. Having goals and achievements to work towards inspires us all, and gets the best out of us. If we can help people get on the right track to do that, that's the greatest reward for us.
Who are your role models?
The great role model was my late Mother, Margaret. The website is named after her in her honor. I was her son, people called her, Mag. So, the name Son of Mag seemed appropriate. – Albeit perhaps a little random. My Mother was an incredibly hardworking woman, kind, generous, and loving. There wasn't anyone is wouldn't help if she could. This inspired me to want to help others. To give back to people who are looking for ways to better themselves.
What inspires you?
My main inspiration is seeing others succeed in life. The ‘feel-good factor' that produces is so rewarding. It's a wonderful achievement knowing that you have helped others to get more from life and make their life a little easier.
Please tell us about ‘Son of Mag'.
I own and run the website, Son of Mag. It was set up purely as a base for others to get information on making an additional income, as well as providing them the tools to navigate through life with a positive outlook. We have many different ebooks available for people to choose from within the e-commerce niche and mental wellbeing. The ebooks are specifically designed to be informative, helpful, and provide a clear path for people to follow.
What's your most memorable experience?
The most memorable experiences are the ones where people get in touch to say how much our content helped them. We understand that everyone deserves a fair chance of bettering themselves, so when people get in touch to say that our products have done just that, it's a wonderful feeling to have.
Which social media channels work best for promoting your work? What exactly do you do on the social media channel that makes it work for you?
We have various social media channels, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest. The combination of all these channels works wonderfully as it helps us to reach a wider audience. Within these channels, we provide helpful content for people to see and read. Perhaps a daily uplifting quote, a little inside trick to getting more from life, and so on. The engagement we receive back from this is encouraging for us to continue what we do best. Helping others.
What's your greatest fear?
The greatest fear I have is not fulfilling our true potential. And the potential of others. We have so much to offer people. We want to inspire everyone, motivate them, help them, and guide them to a much more fulfilling life.
Looking back, what's one thing you wish you understood better before you ever got started?
I wish there was someone there to help and guide me when I started out. I went from one mistake to another, with the loss of money too. This led to me feeling very down about myself and feeling worthless. I didn't want anyone else to suffer what I had. Or, if they had, I wanted to give them a way forward. Something to help them understand that although the road may be bumpy at times, it doesn't always have to be this way. So, I set up my website.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
First and foremost, having a positive mindset was the foundation for being successful.
Without it, nothing really happens correctly. It's the very foundation to build upon. Once you really accept that you can make a difference in your life, and be successful, everything then begins to fall into place. It's like the mind is opening up numerous doors for you and showing you the way forward.
What keeps you going when things get tough?
If/when things seem a little troublesome, or if it feels like nothing is working, I simply take a moment to stop. Readdress my goals, look at things from a different angle, and know that there is a way forward, I just haven't seen it yet. I think about all the things that I have accomplished and the wonderful work I continue to do and promote. This then leads me to feel a lot more motivated, and suddenly, I'm back on the right path again.
