The Story of My Journey as an Entrepreneur

Hello!

I am pleased to have you here on my main blog today, hopefully the reason you’re here is because you’ve found some level of value from my content which has helped you in some kind of way!

I created this website with one main goal in mind, give as much valuable information as possible. Why? Because the more people I help to succeed in life, the more people I help achieve their goals, and the more people I inspire to take more steps toward their dreams and aspirations, the closer I move toward my own.

Simply put, the more value I give, the more value I receive! The value I receive comes in different currencies including, satisfaction and fulfillment in seeing others achieve success, gaining new long lasting friendships with people who have similar goals and aspirations, and of course earning an income that allows me to live a more fulfilling life.

I Love What I Do Now But I Got Off to a Rough Start in the Beginning!


I got started in the work from home industry years ago, at the age of 19, when I was introduced to an MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) opportunity. Needless to say, I failed miserably. I then proceeded to try again in another company… and failed miserably AGAIN!

I repeated this cycle of jumping in and out of companies, like a game of ‘in the river/on the bank’, for over 5 years. Yes… I know, I was hopelessly hopeful. I couldn’t seem to get past the thought of finding that perfect company that would finally help me succeed in achieving my dreams of financial freedom!

I could also tell that I was getting better at selling people on the wide variety of opportunities I was constantly getting involved in. I was actually starting to get the hang of it.. finally starting to make some money!

But despite the small successes I was beginning to have in network marketing I noticed one big problem that continued to show up. Each time I recruited someone, they would almost always end up quitting a few months down the road once they realized how difficult it was to recruit their friends and family.

That’s when I started to study the skill of marketing. After all, it is called Multi-Level Marketing right?

I began to realize that the main problem with network marketing is the fact that almost everyone sells it as being easy, fast money, a way to get rich quick by simply talking to a few people.


You’ve probably heard this before yourself, “oh it’s simple, don’t complicate it. All you need to do is get 3 people and then help your 3 get their 3… Before you know it, you’ll be making more money then you can spend!”

I soon realized that something huge was missing from this strategy. The most important thing that was missing was the skilled marketing!

Instead of targeting the people who most likely have a need and desire for the actual products you’re selling, people who will use those products for the benefit they get from them even if they never make a dime off of them, we were being taught to go out there and talk to anyone within a five-foot radius!

“Make a list of 100 people you know and call all of them!” Sound familiar? “It’s a numbers game, keep talking to more people and you’ll make it.”

I soon learned through trial and error that although it’s true, MLM is a numbers game, successful marketing, no matter the company or product being sold is a targeted numbers game.

Marketing is slightly different then selling, it’s about finding out who wants and needs your product and then putting together a strategy that will show them exactly why they want and need your product because of the benefits it will provide them with. After that process is completed, then the selling comes easily.

In the midst of researching marketing strategies to help me build my network marketing business I learned a lot about Affiliate Marketing, Social Media Marketing, Video Marketing and Search Engine Marketing.

That’s when I realized the power of  leveraging the internet to quickly and efficiently reach 1,000’s of people who had an interest in a specific niche. I began to invest in courses, coaching programs and anything of value I could get my hands on. I was determined to make internet marketing work for me.

“I Started From the Bottom Now I’m Here… 😉


Fast forward past all of the evil scams, failed marketing campaigns and thousands upon thousands of hard earned money lost forever, I now run a successful, full time Search Engine Marketing business (Black Belt Lead Services) and enjoy doing affiliate marketing as well.

Although I still am involved in an MLM company and have nothing against network marketing as a business model, I personally do not depend on it as a primary income and probably never will.

I’m not incredibly successful, I’m not a millionaire nor am I a six figure earner, but I’m headed in that direction as I relentlessly pursue my income goals everyday.

I’m on a journey, and I welcome you along this journey with me. I’m very grateful and thankful for the opportunity to help as many people as possible grow with me along the way.

Thanks for reading. I would love to hear your thoughts, comments and feedback. Please leave a comment below or visit my profile and drop me a message.

All the best!

Sincerely,
