Starting a successful website business is something I could never have imagined myself doing if circumstances had not compelled me to start thinking outside my comfort zone.
Have you ever wondered if there’s MORE to life?
That there’s something BIG out there waiting for you or you have something burning inside of you to inspire and make an impact? That was me back from 1998 - 2018 while i sat at my desk as a Finance Specialist in Uganda. As an Outsider looking in, my life looked pretty good. Good job, Nice House, Nice Car but I was completely empty inside. It drove me nuts waking up each morning to someone else’s schedule and going to work for someone else’s dream; being stuck in an office 12 hours a day and occasionally accessing the outside world through my employer's website business system. This is not the way I wanted to spend the rest of my life until I was 65.
It bothered me the more to imagine what life would be like after i retired at 65 years to depend on government pension. I dreaded the possibility of going through my dad's post retirement experience. He was an accomplished engineer who retired at 70 yrs having worked for 45 years.
The mentality of working for a boss and sacrificing all his productive years to employment left him no room to invest in an alternative source of income. He had to depend on a government pension scheme which was not sufficient enough to sustain his earlier lifestyle. In the end he died a broke and depressed man.
My Dad was a true inspiration. He always encouraged me to work hard and live life to the fullest and our family would never have had the experiences we had without him. Indeed i worked so hard to create a career as a Chartered Accountant. However his post retirement experience is not something i was prepared for.
At the Beginning of 2015 I read a book that changed my life called Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki (visit here ) for a free book on the life changing discoveries i got from this book) . After reading that book my mind and vision to what was possible completely opened up and I started to think very differently about being an Employee vs an Entrepreneur!
I wish I would have read that book back in College or High School but of course that wouldn’t happen because the school system is flawed…unfortunately we’re taught to be employees and drones in school rather than become website Business or Offline business Owners!
The Knowledge i got from Kiyosaki led me to the concept of home website business, and in May 2015 i joined the community of infopreneurs who sell their knowledge through information websites.
I followed a well laid out automated process to start my website business part time and the ever growing traffic started rewarding me with nice returns. In Nov 2016 Network Marketing Found me. I had an old friend of mine call me up and invite me over to her house for a business presentation….
When I got to her house I was exposed to the Network Marketing Environment for the very first time. There was a weird Flip Chart set up in the living room and people wearing team shirts. To be honest I was just trying to be nice to my friend and not ditch out on her excitement but I was Uber uncomfortable being there.
After seeing a short video and a really boring presentation, the last page of the flip chart talked about the different levels in the company and what the average income was and when the presenter said that they were earning $600,000/yr and it took them 3 years to get there, i was like woow.
I grabbed an application form and started filling it out fast. I’m not kidding. I thought if these crazy people are making that kind of money and I’m slaving away at my JOB 12 hours a day and I’ve been working for 18 years doing the same thing making 1/4 of that….I’m in!
My Millionaire Road
So as most people who catch the Network Marketing bug, I thought now that I got this I’m gonna be a millionaire fast!. I was out doing home business presentations 6 nights a week while working a crazy work schedule on top of that and trying to balance everything else.
I realized fast that Network Marketing had to be treated like a business if I wanted it to pay me like one but the difference between my Business and my JOB was the fact that it could be my 5 year plan verses my 40 year plan. I liked the 5 year plan better and I knew I was going to build something BIG.
By November 2018, i had indeed put in considerable time to my Network Marketing business and created a team. I had high belief in the system, but the returns where nothing comparable to my website business where i invested not more than 4 hours each week.
In February 2019 I had the opportunity to go on a trip to Huangzhou - China. Truly one of the most amazing places in the world, and while there, I thought of how I could run my business even while on a trip. I started Googling ways to build my Home Business online and I found some Entrepreneurs that actually had found ways to attract buyers and reps through the Internet…..Exactly what I wanted to do!
I’ll be honest, learning the Internet side of marketing a website Business is not easy but it was worth it. It took me about 6 months to really get the hang of HOW to make it all work but once I found my strategy and got committed to making it work, some really awesome things started to happen.
Having a good mix of Offline and Online Marketing for the team has really BOOSTED our results and as a leader in this Industry I believe it’s our job to embrace the changes in technology with Social Media being one of our biggest Networking Assets!
From 2018 to Now I’ve been exposed to many tools and courses and the ones that I recommend if you’re thinking about taking your website Business Online are listed here if you want to check them out. It’s easier to learn from someone who’s already been down the road that you’re looking to go down!
I am so Blessed and Grateful for my Life. I’m 46 years Young and I’m Free! It took me a few years to figure out my real path to an early retirement through hard work. Now i'm proud to have something that most people don’t have…..A route to Complete Time & Financial Freedom. I still work hard (about 2 hours a day) but I love what I do more than anything and I wouldn’t trade the ups and downs of owning my own Business and being an Entrepreneur for anything.
It’s Great to meet you my New Friend.
