(Long Version). I moved to the United States in 1995, and I didn’t understand or know the English language, I was in a new environment. Upon learning it, I knew that in order to win, I had to learn, therefore I established a personal motto: “win by learning”, and I love to win. Internet was a new concept to me, and pretty much to everyone I have come across with at the time when it came to computers, I remember receiving my first computer from a family friend, a college professor who no longer had a use for it. That led me to create my very first e-commerce website, I knew how to make one, I just didn’t know what to do with it after, and that was my first entrepreneurial venture in 1998. It would only be in the near future until I finally cracked the code, so to say, as to what to do after, and the traffic came. Of course, unfortunately, I entered the rat race, I got a job, it was horrible, I was bagging groceries, and it wasn’t something I did for just a week or a month, I had that job for two and a half years. Although in my off time I was relentless in pursuing my goals, I was always doing something online; many online ventures from startups to my own agency and company, some successful, others not so much, lots of failure, but that was good because I was failing forward. Success is determined by how fast you get up after failure. I ended up having a few more jobs, various positions from blue collar work, to cubicle work, up to a managing executive, and then selling my own franchises. No thank you, I didn’t want to do it because I was lacking the freedom in personal endeavors. Although in between that, I joined a company called Cutco, it was pure direct sales, and I became the number one sales representative in my region; it was not what I expected, and I was out of there after my promotion. Absolutely, I was continually growing my online base as I grew through all these various gigs, positions, and career choices. In 2008 I entered a network marketing company because I owned a prominent blog which was getting hundreds of thousands of unique views and I needed a product to feature. The company I was promoting simply faded, and as you would expect, I told everyone about it, online and offline. Although inherently solidifying my adherence with network marketing. As business goes, I was part of various panels and communities, and was featured in multiple publications, I was able to purchase my first house at a young age, I acquired various cars and toys, and I’ll never forget my first luxury car purchase on eBay with my online income. Also coming to an understanding of wealth; that the idea is not to look rich, but to be rich. Having it well made in my own way, I also went through a time frame where I lost pretty much everything I had, so it seemed; which came as a blessing in disguise to show me that I can get it all back, and more, and faster, and better. And I did. And that If I have to, I can certainly do it more. Meeting people along the way I am able to connect continually on a level of understanding and appreciation with others which propels a common bond to succeed forward. I enjoy collaborating with speaking engagements, internet stuff, network marketing, entrepreneurship, training sessions, think tanks, and expanding influence. When you see any links, advice, and sources of wisdom coming your way from me, I highly recommend that you take a look, subscribe, connect with me, and initiate action. Today, I continue to build, explore, accomplish, and create in abundance; while living life on my terms, and giving quality value to you along the way. Welcome.
Why Network Marketing/NWM?
My tank was running on E (empty), my well was drying out (gulp)… looking at all the statistics of many industries network marketing just makes sense.
How many people are using their college degrees in regards to the job they have now? There is a reason why college debt is at an all time high of over 1.5 Trillion (too staggering to even imagine). Colleges refuse to show their success rates as to what happens to their graduates (because then they would be out of business). 71% of all businesses that start close down in 10 years. 96% of all real estate agents (with a realtor license) don’t sell a single house. There is absolutely no employment security. Downsizing is at an all time high. People can’t retire when they’d like. There is not enough money to live on.
Network marketing statistics are readily available, although it does get a bad rep in the press because… it’s the press. In the media, editors and publishing executives usually give one command to their employees “if it makes you angry, sick, and disgusted, publish it” basically “if it bleeds it reads”. All media has an agenda. Usually to drive traffic to itself via most treacherous stories so it can capture just enough eyeballs to get the advertising revenue.
That is why it’s truly important to look at the core of network marketing and how it is truly helping people succeed. With proper vision, set your goals high. It’s hard to be rich, it’s hard to be poor; so choose your hard. Network marketing is a vehicle that allows your dreams to come true. The path and how far you go depends solely on the size and intensity of your desires.
I became determined to succeed in network marketing, and I have reached great success with always more to do in the field. I joined my first network marketing company in 2008 part-time, and then went full-time or “all in” in December 2011.
That being said, be a friend to people who are trying to improve. And remember, real leaders are not born, they have made it their business.
As far as what I do today, in earlier abundance and lifestyle prefix; network marketing/nwm is at the core of more money, more health, and more time.
Lifestyle | To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
Success | Losers look only for the badness in a good person and therefore find it difficult to work with anyone, while winners look for the goodness in a bad person and hence can work with almost anyone.
Leadership | The obstacles and rejections initially are painful, but when you look back on them, you realize they benefited you for the long-term goal. People respect experience, not shortcuts.
