Hello my friend Craig here. As you pay attention to this blog post, you will learn why I believe that anyone can truly live the life they want. And, how I am doing whatever I can to help others to follow their dreams.
But first, let me tell you my story first. My online marketing journey started back in 2002 when like most people I was working a job. I wasn’t satisfied with the way my life was going. You see I had two jobs at the time. and I was getting burned out quick.
I wanted more out of life, working two jobs for the rest of it wasn’t going to cut it. So, I started researching online for ways to make money.
Damn!…It was a lot of information.
I spend 5 hours a day in cyber space looking for my answer. With so many “make money this,” and “make money that,” online – I just didn’t know who to trust, or what to believe.
My search went on for almost 3 months. It felt as though I wasn’t any closer than when I first started. But, I was determined to find what I was looking for.
One day while at work, a guy approached me to ask for directions. I showed him how to find what he was looking for. He was a little Filipino dude. This guy was sharp. After I gave him directions, he gave me his business card. He told me about some private, invitation only meeting that him and his business partners were holding. And, that I could be his guest. I told him that I would consider it and I would be in touch.
I know you’re wondering if I went…
Well I did, and here’s what happened…
I have never been exposed to anything so mind blowing in my life. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and hearing. There were hundred of people in this place. People from all walks of life. Ordinary every day people.
The only difference between those people and the people I was surrounded myself with everyday was that these people talked different.
What I mean is…
They were not talking about the football game or the latest tv show. They were all talking about dreams, goals, and personal development stuff. They were also talking about how much money they were making from a little part-time deal they were involved in.
Their stories were very similar to mine…They frustrated, doubtful and depressed working two, some three jobs, and still not having enough money to take of their families, or have time to spend with them.
Until.. they found this little opportunity and the guy who I gave directions too just the day before. These people were thanking him for all the money they were making…from home.
Now they really had my attention…
As I listened, watched and paid attention to the amount of money these people said they were making was incredible. Some were holding up checks. It was crazy. I never seen anything like this in my life.
I know what you’re thinking…
All of this could have been staged, the checks could have been faked, the people were lying. I’m with you.
I thought the same thing…
You see what I didn’t mention earlier in this story was, that at the time I was a police officer who pride himself in knowing how to spot the real thing from the fake. And, who always paid attention to details.
As so as I was able too. I talked to as many people that night as I could. They all were able to back up what they were saying. It was incredible.
Though I still wasn’t sure at first…
I joined the team. And, from there, there were ups and downs. But, I stayed the course. And, I haven’t looked back since.
That night, fifteen years ago changed my life. The people I met, the income that I’ve earned in the industry has been a true blessing. It has allowed me to see the light again.
Today I am working from home, and my wife and I travel and enjoy life. You can do the same. All you have to do is make a decision to believe in yourself and take action.
