may be a lot like me. You've been just "getting by" for a long time.
And from a young age, you've been taught to work for someone else. In college
they taught you to "get a job" and to be an "employee." But
they probably didn't offer you a class on owning your own business. Or one
on becoming financially independent.
probably thought that owning a successful business that provides continual income
was only for unique people like Donald Trump or Bill Gates.
you changed your mind yet? I have.
Your Life Back
Being able to be home with
my wife to see precious moments in our young son's life was not something I had
given up on. Neither was being able to travel and relax when I wanted to.
when a former associate and friend told me he had quit his job to own his own
business, I was intrigued. Especially when he said that I could begin one as well.
kept talking about "residual" income. "What that means,"
he said, "is that you get paid every month for what you started. You get
paid for what you did one time just like royalty from a book or record. Think
of it as continual income that comes in whether you go to work or not."
sounds good, I thought, but what do I have to sell? Soap? Vitamins? Dishes? Products
my friends don't know anything about, probably don't want and things they'll end
up paying more for if they purchase from me?"
he said. "You don't have to sell anything. People are already paying
these bills every month!"
bills could those be?" I thought.
services through MCI. Cell phone service from Cingular Wireless.
Satellite TV from Dish Network and other things people pay bills on every
month without giving it a second thought."
Paid for What You Start
was excited, but what pushed me to stop wasting my time and start building my
future was when he told me that I didn't only get commission every month
on customers I switched to these companies, but I could bring in others like me
to find customers and I'd receive a commission on those bills too!
only that, but all the bills that came in under the people I brought in, and
the ones they brought in.....and the ones they brought in, and so on. Just like
Donald Trump and Bill Gates, I'd receive income on the efforts of others in addition
to my own.
signs appeared in my eyes as I saw the numbers adding up in my mind.
wouldn't have to store products in my garage to try to "peddle off"
to my friends and I wouldn't risk money by ordering those products and hoping
to sell them. All I could do in this business was make money. A few hundred
each month (or more) to start and who knows where I could go?
would you do?
now, I can think of lots of folks who could use an extra three or four thousand
bucks every week. Maybe youre one of them. Or perhaps youd be happy
making just an extra $1000 dollars a month?
would you do with extra income? Or if you totally replaced the income you are
making now by working 9 to 5 everyday?
