Hey, I'm Art. This past year has been quite a ride; Corporate America is now a memory!
I was born and bred in Philly. My dream was to play backup trumpet in Maynard Ferguson's jazz band. Some of my favorite memories were ditching high school and jamming with some of the jazz greats in downtown Philadelphia.
I was a music major for two years at West ChesterUniversity, but (and I hate to admit it) couldn’t pass music theory (evidently it wasn’t enough to be able to “improvise” my way to a music degree) so I ended up graduating with a degree in Business Administration.
So for the past 25 years I’ve been an entrepreneur. I started out as an investment broker; I was passionate about the business, worked hard and was very successful.
After 8 years, I decided to start my own business and have owned a thriving mortgage company in Pittsburgh for approximately 16 years…and quite frankly I was thoroughly enjoying my job. I was able to live the lifestyle that allowed me to pursue my interests as a wine connoisseur, golf, traveling, and playing trumpet semi-professionally. Life was great!
And then, as most of you are aware, a few years ago the real estate industry as a whole took a huge downturn… and to no surprise, so did my business. Well, being the entrepreneur that I am, I started looking for ways to supplement my income. I wanted to do something on a part-time basis and still be able to operate my mortgage company.
After looking at more opportunities than I care to remember (like many of you have) I joined an MLM company, but it was VERY old school.
I did everything my upline told me…you know, made a list of 100 friends… worked the phones for countless hours… chased down everyone including the postman to join my business.
Not only was I struggling, but so were those on my team.
I had to find an answer fast as by now I was dipping into my savings.
Thank God, I found what I was looking for - a company and a system that supplied phenomenal training as well as the marketing tools to promote it's life-changing wealth and health products, all of which allowed me to leverage my time and regain control over my financial future.
And if I, someone with ZERO experience or background in direct sales and marketing on the Internet can generate over $40,000 in sales in only four full months, so can you!!
My partner Cheryl and I are passionate about teaching others how to harness the power of the Internet and couple it with the one-to-one personal follow up. We are Internet trainers for our primary company community and are private consultants for people all over the US.
I am now in the process of selling my mortgage company and going full-time with my online business. To have financial freedom and the ability to work from home on my own schedule is huge!
My intention here at Better Networker is to bring you the very best to help you build WHATEVER home-based business you are in.
