It all started in 1997, (can’t remember what month it was) when I was in my 7th year as a NYC Correction Officer. I remember it like it was yesterday.
I really did not want to go to work this day, but had to go because I called in sick too many times before in the past. I was praying that I would get a real easy post so the day could go by quick.
It’s funny how GOD never gives you what you want but always gives you what you need.
You see, I was always trying to figure out how I could start my own business, because I always (for as long as I can remember) knew that working for others was not the way I wanted to live my life.
Boy, I sure did not realize at this time how deep the rabbit hole really went.
**GOING DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE**
Okay, back to that day at work. There it was, somehow I got the post I hated the most, THE INTAKE (where inmates are processed entering and exiting the jail).
I remember sitting there pissed off when all of a sudden this officer Roger J. (I will never forget you Rog) started talking to another officer about money and how it works.
He wasn’t even talking to me, I just happen to be walking by and over heard him. He was talking about THE RULE of 72, INVESTING, REAL ESTATE, and OWNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS.
I didn’t know what it was but it was like I won a million dollars. I asked him, no begged him (just kidding, just asked) if he could teach me what he knew.
Long story short he invited me to a Network Marketing opportunity meeting which basically changed my life. What happened next really made the change solid, I read 2 books: Rich Dad, Poor Dad & Think and Grow Rich.
**FAST FORWARD IN THE TIME MACHINE**
After making good money but with no solid traffic of new fresh leads (new prospects) and my warm market (family & friends) drying up fast, my dreams of home business ownership was DEAD.
I hated every time my uplines (sponsors) use to tell me “You never run out of referrals in your warm market.”
Well, I didn’t know what the heck they were talking about because that’s what was happening to me. Also, during this period I discovered one of the most powerful marketing tools in the world THE INTERNET.
I then joined several other businesses after Medical Billing, Phone Cards, Selling Dish TV, Buying ATM Machines, etc.
I loved the Network Marketing companies I joined, I believed in their mission.
Example: I do not like owning just one store in the mall. If there is a fire near my store and my store gets destroyed.
My income DIES! Versus owning several stores in different areas of the mall and something happens to one of my stores.
I still would get paid because of the other stores I own in that mall. I wanted a nationwide; no scratch that, an international business not a local or regional business.
This is what Network Marketing Companies provides, the more people you have on your team (going for their goals & making money), the more money you make ALONG with them. NOT OFF OF THEM LIKE CORPORATE AMERICA DOES!!
**NOW I CAN SEE VERY CLEAR NOW**
My eyes once again opened up I saw more clearly. I hope that after reading this you will understand what I am talking about. Also, it was something about the power of INTERNET that I totally loved.
I figured if I could understand the power of the INTERNET and knew how to use it, I could get paid big money in a TRUE HOME-BASED BUSINESS.
Don’t get me wrong even though I quit some of the Network Marketing companies I was with, I would choose this route (working with a MLM company) as a career over a normal 9-5 Job ANY DAY!!
**MY FUTURE LOOKS REAL BRIGHT**
I started and still am reading as many books as possible about on how to think, marketing, money, business, wisdom, basically EVERYTHING and ANYTHING involving personal development.
I WANT TO GET PAID (Period)!!! WITH MONEY COMES FREEDOM, WITH FREEDOM COMES CHOICES, and I LOVE HAVING CHOICES!!
I hated someone telling me when to go to work, when I could take a break (or how long), and I how much money I could make.
I hated them telling me where I can live and what I can drive based on the amount of money I made. All of that made me sick (physically and mentally). That’s why my future is looking very bright now!!
The best thing of all now is I can really help others by telling them what I’ve learned and what I am doing with what I have learned.
One my greatest joys in life are to be able to impact other people’s lives to help make them better. I don’t want ANYTHING in return, just to help others….. THAT’S IT!
So please browse through my site, take advantage of all the info to see why I am so excited about my life now.
