For me it’s all about family, friends and fun.
My entrepreneurial journey started many years ago with the thought that there were way to many exciting and fun things to do in life to have to spend most of your time just earning a living.
When I grew up in Miami, FL, I loved the ocean and diving and dreamed of traveling the world and being a treasure hunter like the great Mel Fischer.
Interesting start to say the least, and that thought, along with a degree in Psychology, which qualified me for nothing but minimum wage, set the stage for what was to come.
My first true career was mastering the art of leverage in real estate by putting together large partnerships that owned apartment projects. I started at 22 and by the time I was 29 I was almost retired and then ….. oops!! The economy in the early 80’s crashed and took me down with it. Darn I was so close too!
Then discovered the true art of leverage in the MLM industry where I joined an early stage company, developed some very powerful mass marketing and lead generation systems and within 2 years I had complete financial freedom once again.
I have had many businesses since then but none even comes close to the reward you can achieve in a network marketing business. It is a world of challenge, personal development, achievement, friendship, mentorship, and incredible reward. It is a true win-win business model where you can only achieve if you help others to excel. What an incredible industry…..
