Many of you who have read my blogs in the past know where I am coming from, for those of you who are new, here is a quick re-cap. I always wanted to be an entrepreneur, and so eventually I was. I owned my own successful Marketing and Advertising business with clients like Subaru Corporate, Level(3) and Digital Globe for over 18 years.
One day I woke up and realized I hated my job and I was the boss! Several months prior to that my mom was diagnosed with cancer and my daughter was in a near fatal car accident a week later. I could not work, not physically or emotionally. As I was taking care of my family my business was dwindling to nothing. Why you ask? A million reason, however the main one was that I was the only person bringing in the sales. I had plenty of people to do the work, I just wasn’t able to go out and get the business, again for a million reasons. We dipped into our savings, we dipped into our 401K. Eventually my mom passed and it took months and months of therapy for my daughter to recover.
I eventually was re-introduced to network marketing and that is when I was ready to listen. So... now we bring you to today!
I have mentioned what I am doing to a few people over the past several years and it is funny how they want to see me do it first before they would consider joining me. The real question is do YOU want to do it. It has nothing to do with me. Over the years I have ranked up, I receive a car bonus, our lifestyle is improving and hope is back in our life. I continue to build my business and I win a FREE cruise.
What does a FREE cruise look like... amazing. All the while those people are standing by watching. You see I know because I did the same thing for way too long. I stood by and “watched" most of my life away. After loosing nearly everything, my husband and I realized we don't have a lot of time to make up all the money we used during the time of our family crises.
My goal was to never be in that situation again, thus residual income via the profession of network marketing. And, what this blog is really about is that I was on a cruise for a week which was paid for by my company and I just had my largest residual income... mind you I was out of the country for a week on a cruise!!!!
Have I worked hard over the past few years, you bet I have, the only difference is when I owned my traditional business nothing grew unless I was working. And… that is when I woke up and realized I hated my job and I was the boss! I had to make a change, I stepped out of my comfort zone, took a leap of faith and never looked back.
What a blessing it has been to have the profession of network marketing helping us to get our life back... we have hope again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We never know what to expect in life... sometimes the darkest moments become the brightest moments. Like you, I have had a life of ups and downs and at certain points in my life I wasn't sure if I could go get much further down.
