My Life Looking For The Perfect Opportunity
November of 2003 was the BEST MONTH OF MY LIFE!!! Yeah I know that with everything that has happened recently the best month of my life should have been January 2010 simply because I’ve gotten engaged and I couldn’t be happier.
One afternoon in mid-November of 2003 I had one of my friends at the time, Miguel Burleson, approach me and tell me about “a way to make thousands of dollars by the end of the year” Keep in mind that means thousands of dollars within under two months. I was 21 and in love with money so I went to this “Meeting” he invited me to.
I got to the “Meeting” about 10 minutes late(I overslept from my afternoon nap). When I walked in the room [it was in the lounge in the barracks] There stood a man about 6’2″ tall dark complection and dressed in a very nice light grey suit… He looked like he stepped strait out of a GQ photo-shoot. At first I thought this is insane if it was this easy to make money EVERYONE WOULD BE RICH!!! But as I listened to the “Business Plan” I started to get excited! It made sense!! I WAS GOING TO BE LOADED!(Rich,Rich,Rich)
I continued to talk to this man who I later came to know as Mr. (Miguel) Curl. For those of you who have read “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki can understand when I say Miguel Curl was (correction…) IS my “Rich Dad”!!
That November I learned that I didn’t have to follow the 9-5 schedule. I could do my own thing! (Here’s another..)
I didn’t know how to do it… What was my “thing”???
I tried a “Network Marketing” company[not telling which one] and I loved the concept because in my opinion its just like any job I have ever worked. With the exception of…The harder you worked…the more money you made!!! Not only that but you can build a “business” from the ground floor up without having to worry about thousands of dollars in payroll!!!
I didn’t believe in my product and started to believe those close to me who said “That will never work”…
So I decided to let “MLM” or “Network Marketing” companies and business models go!!
I knew there had to be a way to get out of the 9-5 rat race without having to worry about “big business loans” and other problems that surface when starting a business…
So I listened to a friend of mine who just quit his full time job to work from home as an “Internet Marketer” (a joke..or atleast that’s what I thought at the time) I gave it a run for about 2 months and didn’t make but one sell which meant a $17 profit.
Then about a year later…I got laid off! As some of you know, That meant there was hard times ahead of me!
So that’s when I picked “Internet Marketing” back up…
I spent hundreds of dollars (almost everything I had) on the ebooks teaching how to do it!
Then one day (after I got my tax return) I went to “Curcuit City” for the Going Out Of Business Sale. I was looking around at the video cameras and seen a “Flip” camcorder and as odd as it sounds some guy walked up and said that’s a great camera especially if your using it for Internet Marketing…WHAT??? So the Networker in me exchanged info…
We partnered up a few months later and after some careful thought we started Stay Boosted…
I love every thing about Stay Boosted but…(I’m using but’s a lot I know) We started it by giving away free content not charging for anything or trying to make money off of it and WE plan to keep it that way (as far as the blog is concerned)
So I tried to write an E-Book … Enjoyed everything about that but after the initial week I launched it I didn’t sell any more…
So I thought about what “Vehicle” I could use to attract success…
Do What You Love!
The phrase that I heard on over 10 movies inside of a week…
I thought about everything that I’ve ever done and/or enjoyed to do…
- Network Marketing
- Internet Marketing
- Helping others
About the time I was trying to figure out the best “Door” to open Mr. Curl called me and we sat down and talked about my dreams and everything that I was wanting to do. He introduced me to a new opportunity that blew my mind!!!
My Shopping Genie
Another Network Marketing Company? Yes!
Another Way To Make Money Online? Yes!!
The Best of Both Worlds?? OH YES!!!!
I can’t put into words how great this is I love IT!!!!
What was the biggest part that attracted me?
They didn’t promise $5K a Week or to become a millionaire inside of a year. They promise that its a valid business opportunity and if worked right it could make some money! Thats it? … YES! Some Money!
The Truth is simple … You can become a millionaire off of it and You can not profit anything its all in how you work it!
So I put together The Shopping Toolbar
Take a look and let me know what you think….
Honestly I just got tired of hearing about “I Made $1,000 While I Slept” or “Make $5,000 a Week”
Will it work for me? I am not God so I can’t answer that but if you ask me in a year I’ll let you know!
For now I’m done rambling Hope everyone finds the drive inside of them to find Success in their Pursuit of Happiness!!
As Always Be Good and Stay Boosted
To Your Success in Finding Your Mental Fortunes,
