About Me

Hello and thank you for stopping by...

 

Just like you, I was once searching for the perfect business to provide that freedom -- and I found it. More about that in a little bit.

My story begins back in 2002. I had been married for almost year, working in a corporate job when I felt this vehicle wasn’t for me. I could remember back to my younger years. I was about 8 years old. My neighbor and I decided to have a lemonade stand to make some money.

We opened it up on one of the hottest days of the summer. We made a few gallons of lemonade and began selling them for $.75 per cup. Business was going ok when I thought, what if we could make a little extra and give our customer a smile. So, I immediately went to my back yard and began clipping some of the lialacs off of our bushes.

We bundled them up and began selling them for $1 per. With the lemonade and flowers selling like hotcakes, we soon saw the money flowing in. We made a profit that day.

As I began reliving this memory in the spring of 2002, I knew I needed to be self-employed if I wanted to have financial and time freedom. The first opportunity that fell in my lap was working with an insurance network marketing company (I’m sure you know who they are if I told you their name). Six months into it, I had sold a whopping two policies.

I was getting discouraged and I stopped showing up. I quit and jumped right back into giving my corporate job all that I had. Click here to continue to read my story
