My user name is 'Bullie' and he was one of my Thoroughbred horse rescues. He was a son of the Triple Crown Winner 'Seattle Slew.' When I rescued Bullwinkle he was emaciated and straight off the track. It took about four years to rehabilitate him and due to his condition, all legs and nose, I named him after that silly moose. He was one of many horses I have rescued since 1995. What does that have to do with my interest in Network Marketing?
My former husband and I created one of the first dot coms in 1995. We sold classified ads on the web. I managed the applied technology group and also created the requirements specifications for the first domestic marketing analytics application. I know how to code in flat HTML only, and do not have any sales experience despite being in all of the meetings and characterizing the market of 'free agents' for a SEC filing.
In 2006 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, which is annoying but not tragic. Some days I walk better than others but that is also due to three herniated discs in my spine and a ton of arthritis. I have never fallen off a horse, I was assaulted and robbed one evening on my way home from work in New York City. Since I relapse frequently, it is best to find a work from home solution. My horses are great therapy animals. I currently have five, however, two are 'keepers.' That would be my 'Impressive' son, and my great granddaughter of 'Secretariat.' They are so bonded I will never split them up. I still ride as well as I did before, only I'm not as quick on the ground. The horses are patient with me!!!
My first try was with Herbalife. I like the products - I am a vegan not just because I detest the slaughter of animals, but the MS requires it. Herbalife is great for my health. The only problem with Herbalife is their marketing company 'Online Business Systems'. They rob you blind and I am sticking it out until I recoup my costs and then I'll bid them adieu!!!
My coach and upline actually cost me my first sale! I used an autoresponder and safelists and I had one prospect at the time who wanted to sign up as a Distributor. Well, the coach and her upline insisted on being on the call. I could not get a word in edgewise and they ended up selling her $230.00 worth of product, which she never bought in the end. Listen to the call I got in my voicemail after that fiasco. It is horrific!
After that nighmare, I found Ann Sieg's 'Renegade Marketer' book. I bought it and read it cover to cover and often listen to the .mp3 podcasts that came with it. Ann and Mike are so organized and everything progresses in a logical manner. I have a BA in Analytic Philosophy from New York University and transparency is very important to me.
I know if I follow the plan that I will be successful. The material is not difficult and I enjoy the study of it all. I am learning a lot of new things as the Internet has changed since I had my own company and actually worked in the sector. I am enjoying myself and I am pleased to be here!!! I hope this site starts to get an Alexa rank soon!!!
