You want a piece of me is a 3 or 4 part personal story of my journey getting to where I am today and what life changing changes happened along the way that changed my life forever…

want a piece of meIf you read my first two posts “You Want A Piece Of Me! Part 1” and “You Want A Piece Of Me! Part 2” then you know how my life started and what happened to get me to this, the third part of my journey…?

If you did not have a chance to read the first two parts of my journey, you should click on the links above and check them out first, before reading this, the third major change in my life…

You want a piece of me, part three starts out where I had just finished my retraining in the field of electronics… and had landed a non-training related position in a plumbing business computerizing their office…

Now, as you may realize this is totally different from the job experiences I had in the past, which were outside, during all kinds of weather conditions, long hours, and just plainly hard labor type jobs…

The one thing that was refreshing was that since it was in a plumbing shop, it was still construction related, so I did have some experience in that area, so the terminology etc. was familiar…

Well that job was going great. I had started out at a small beginning wage and had graduated to a fair wage in a very short period of time… Probably more than I would have made in the electronics field anyway… The wages were good, I had good insurance, even had some other good benefits like, vacation pay, retirement plan, etc.

So, I got started with this job in August of 1989 and everything was going great! I had gotten comfortable in my job and income…

Then, along comes 1999 and the beginning of the decline in the economy. Yep just like everyone else, I was affected the same. The first thing that happened was, my income was reduced… You probably know how that will affect the cost of your home that you have gotten comfortable in? The amount of toys you have gotten accustomed to playing with, etc. So you start downsizing to compensate…

Then the retirement plan went away…

That is about the time I decided that I had better find something to supplement my retirement because it did not look like my job was going to do it anymore, unless something in the economy really changed a lot. That is around the time that I started looking online for some kind of options that would not take a lot of money or time…

I found a company online that was in the healthy green technologies industry and I thought this is a great field to get into. People need clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, healthy juices and vitamins, etc. The country is going green. This is where I should be…!

I did what most all of you reading my story have probably done, since that is the way we have all been told it should be done…?

Go out and talk to your friends and family, hit the guy up next to you in the grocery store line, because he can’t get away from you… Purchase and cold call leads all hours of the day, just to get as many no’s as you could get, so you could get that yes… Then what happens is you get someone into your business for 30, 60, 90 days and then they quit.

In my case, I have bought the big kit that I was told will save me a lot of money and create more profit for me as well… At that time I was still working, had good credit, lots of credit cards to give me easy access to purchasing the products/kits…

After about two years with this company I had built up a good sized inventory in my garage and a team of probably 10 people. I had a filing cabinet full of folders that said I had done really well with probably 50 or so people that had been in my business over time and had quit.

During this time I had started spending more time online trying to figure out how to market my company and my products. Company policy would not let me market the company name and that sort of thing everyone probably understands…

magnetic sponsoringI ran into a product called Magnetic Sponsoring by Mike Dillard and bought it. I was now on Mike’s email list and started getting information in my email. It was about this time that I got up one morning as usual and went to my computer to check things out…

What did I find jumping off of my computer screen and just about knocking me to the floor? There was an email with the subject line, “XYZ company has been sold…” What, I have over $10,000 of inventory in my garage! As it turns out, the company had been close to bankruptcy, without the common knowledge of the reps in the company.

This is what happened. The new company kept the majority of the main line products, but changed the names on all of them. They discontinued several of the products and decided not to honor some of the warranties for products that had not been sold yet and stopped making some of the replacement parts for others…

This is when I realized that what I had been hearing about, people do not buy your products, they do not join your company, they join and buy from YOU because they know like and trust YOU!

By the way, I still have inventory if anyone might be interested… LOL

The 7 Figure NetworkerThat is around the time that I connected with Jonathan Budd and his 7 Figure Networker System. I jumped into that system with both feet and have been earning commission checks from J Budd twice a month ever since just like clockwork.

That is when I decided I was going to try to learn everything I could about marketing online. I did it just the way all of you are probably doing it… Yep, I started buying products and courses about everything. I studied it all…well probably like you I studied the first chapter or two and then I would move onto something else.

Something that I may have done that you are not doing though is, I started taking action on the one thing that was working for me and that was the 7 Figure Networker System. Sure I was making a few dollars every month from my marketing efforts, but I was not going anywhere. I would check my email and there would be another one of those shiny objects telling me how easy it was to market online, how easy it was to get rich with this course or that…

free workshopI say “BULLSHIT!”

Pardon my swearing, but that is the truth. I am a very upfront person and I tell it like it is. Marketing online is not easy, it is hard work. And becoming successful at it, is even harder. But, it is not impossible if you go about it in the right way…

OOPS! I got carried away with that part of my story… So that was the next big thing that happened that totally took my life into a different direction. Now I am not saying that your company is going to be sold out from under you, but I will say that, you need to build your own brand and sell yourself first. I wrote an ebook called, “How To Brand Yourself With A Million Dollar Brand,” and you can pick up a free copy here: My FREE Gift To You for reading my story…

I decided I was going to learn and share what I learned with others and help them miss all the mistakes I made. So I and now doing coaching and mentoring as part of my everyday online experience. Don’t get me wrong, there is still more of my story that I will save for the next part for you to read…

The biggest mistake people make when they come online is they do everything backwards. They come online and try to make money the first thing without learning how to do it first?

Online marketing is not an easy road to take. Marketing online takes a lot of hard work and sacrifice… I don’t care what you have been told or what you have seen plastered all over the Internet, but the truth is it is damned hard work and very few people are willing to do the work necessary and they fail.

Like I said before, most people come online without knowing at all what to do, how to do it, or where to go next once they do get here… Most people come online with a lot of energy and desire and see all over the Internet things like, “Get rich Quick,” Making Money is Easy,” etc. They jump into this and then that and before you know it they are either broke or so frustrated they are ready to quit, or both…

As with life having two ways to go, positive or negative, so does your path to online success. You can do it the normal way, which is the path that most take to frustration and debt, only because they don’t know any other way…

Or you can take the harder/easier more successful, more cost effective way, of finding a coach and a mentor that has already been down that first path and can save you from the frustration and debt if you are really serious about your success…

starting overMyself, if I had it to do over again, I would definitely choose the last option. It was only after I got so far down financially that I was in bankruptcy, on the very edge of losing my home to foreclosure, that I finally made the decision to find a mentor and a coach. Trust me when I say it made all the difference in the world because now I am coaching and mentoring others and making a difference in their lives as well…

I have recently found a live workshop training course that is really helping people get started on the right track. The reason why I like it, is because it is presented in a step by step method of training that is put together in 10 weeks of workshops. Each week you get the training necessary to go through each level of your business in the proper order.

For example: In week one workshop you would get the training necessary to set up your autoresponder so you can follow up properly and start building relationships… Week two is where you would learn how to create capture pages, etc. and the things necessary for building your funnel and start generating leads and income… These are just brief descriptions, trust me there is a lot more to this course than that? Workshop 2.0

As you should be able to see, a person if they are taking this course seriously, could be positioning themselves to start creating cash flow within the first two weeks of this course, instead of fumbling around for weeks, months, or even years sometimes without generating a dime or getting a single lead.

If this is of interest to you at all, you can go watch this free video training to get all the details of what I am talking about. Not only do you get this free video, but you will be able to get the first workshop for only a buck. Yes, i said that right, for one measly $1… Click Here Now
