The Circle of My Life: From Ohio to Panama and Back Again
Born in Ohio; moved to Virginia, Maryland, then the Panama Canal Zone. I returned to U.S. to live with relatives near Columbus, OH until graduation from high school. I married in 1965 (in OH); then moved to Wisconsin.
One of my first attempts at being an entrepreneur was becoming ‘The Fuller Brush Man’ working a territory designated by the Fuller Brush company. Knocking on doors, talking to strangers, and touting the value of a Lifetime Warranty was an eye-opening foray into the world of sales, marketing, and home-based business. It cost me more than I made, but I was sure that the problem was ME, so I was determined to educate myself and try again when the next opportunity arose.
Over the years, of the companies that you might recognize, I’ve tried Avon, Prudential, and Herbalife. They are all good companies with great products, but unless you are a great ‘closer’ with a Type-A personality, a fair-sized budget for initial marketing, and LOTS of time to put into getting started the likelihood is that you won’t (get started that is). Mentoring was what I needed but it was, for all intents and purposes, non-existent. What I REALLY needed was to learn how to use MY OWN personality to be successful in my business endeavors instead of trying to be someone I was not.
In recent years I delved into a few Internet-based MLM ‘schemes’ (with the same negative outcome). So, what was missing? I’m a relatively smart, capable, caring human being, so why can’t I make this work? What’s wrong with me? But the desire to ‘own my own life’ was still there, so I tried a few more ‘opportunities’ but it wasn’t until I found a group of like-minded people who were willing (and able!) to guide me (the key word here is ME) that I found my place. Now I am ready to help others find what they seek too.
