Follow Me On
So, I`m a young ambitious, honest and confident guy from Brazil. While still in college I knew I didn`t want to work forever. I wouldn`t like to spend decades of my life confined in a cubicle for 40+ hours a week working to accomplish someone elses dreams. I wanted to work to realize my own dreams. But I was young, immature and inexperienced. I started of as most people do, as an employee.
From Employee to Invetor
I`m glad I`ve read Kiyosaky`s Rich Dad, Poor Dad and other books of the series while still very young. I became aware of the cashflow quadrant. I was already an employee, not willing to change for and self-employment and didn`t considered myself an entrepreneur. So my first way out of the rat race was becoming an investor.
I was single, living with my brother, earning a good salary as a software engineer for Hewlett-Packard. I understood the value of compound interests and I was saving as much as I could every month. Sometimes as much as 50% of my salary, but I couldn`t keep at this ratio for long. Being an investor and having money working for me sounded great, in fact, still does. But it takes a lot of money, in order to live from the interests without touching the capital.
Becoming an Entrepreneur
After a few years I had some money and started a traditional business. A store at a mall being administered by my brother. It ended up not working out due to a variety of issues. A traditional business require a lot of money, it demands a lot of your time, experience and good knowledge on a variety of subjects is also a must. Well you get the picture. My first venture was not successfull, nor did the second.
MLM is Revealed and Understood
So, I continued at HP. Saving money and investing to recover what has been lost in those business. It was during this time that the concept of MLM or Network Marketing was presented to me. It made all the sense in the world for me. I did my due dilligence and signed up. I started only being taught the basic, raw old-school methods and man did I strugle. But I knew, or you have excusses or you have results, you can`t have both.
I studied a lot, bought a variety of trainings on old-school methods and stubled up on Mike Dillards free 7-day boot camp on magnetic sponsoring and attraction marketing. It all made sense. Put the marketing back into network marketing and talking to those who already seek what you are offering and doing it all while still having a life.
The Affiliate Network Marketer Arrises
To make a long story short I also started studying affiliate marketing, not only to make a self-funded proposal but also to make a full-time living out of it. And it made all the sense in the world to combine all these powerfull marketing strategies to create a unstoppable 24/7 cash machine. Truly leverage myself while teaching and supporting others to do the same.
