Hello and welcome my friends!
My name is Michael Stead and I am super excited about making some awesome connections on here and to network with the people that are truthfully creating real tangible freedom for themselves. I am always open to exchanging ideas and to learn more from everyone!
So there's a few things about me that you should know....
Growing up I was raised on the standard beliefs that I am positive 95% of all people are taught. These are that if you do not have a good education that you cannot get a good job therefore you cannot be successful. Also, that if you do not have business experience that you cannot win in life.
I knew that acquring financial freedom would virtually be impossible if I had chosen to do what everyone else does and that is to get to school, study hard and get a good education, then get a 9 to 5 job and work for 45 years for somebody else.
This whole philosophy was drilled into my head but for whatever reason, it just didn't seem right to me. Not to mention having witnessed the vast majority of my friends and family struggle financially, I knew that there was simply no freedom in a J.O.B.
However, becoming very frustrated with my results by taking the traditional route I decided that the only way that I could break out of this social norm was to become an entrepreneur.
I knew that this would be a huge leap of faith however, my desire for a life of freedom spoke so much louder than my fear of failing. I knew that I could impact people's lives so that not only could I enjoy freedom myself, but I could empower other people as well to acquire it for themselves.
One lesson that has truly made all the difference for me is Robert Frost's poem, "The Road Less Travelled". I highly encourage anyone who is serious about acquring freedom to read this poem and to discover the underlying message that it entails.
I truly believe that anyone can achieve success and live the life of their dreams. All you have to do is have a plan, take action, have a burning desire, and never quit.
That being said I am excited to getting to know everyone on this forum and I hope that we can truly make some amazing things happen!
