I was born into a small farming community in Jerome, Idaho. At about the age of two, my parents divorced. We moved in with my grandparents in another farming community in Moses Lake, Washington. There was an Air Force Base just out of town. My aunt had a boyfriend that was stationed at the base. He had a friend that had a car and was willing to drive him to our house. The young man that drove him, popped into the house. My mother poked her head out of the kitchen door for just a few minutes to say, but it was enough time for that young man to know that he was going to marry my mother. And he did. He married her and her four children.
Since he was in the military, it gave us the opportunity to live all over the United States, the Orient, and Europe. It was a wonderful educational experience for all of us. My biological father essentially disappeared from my life. The good news is that this wonderful man that married my mother, adopted all four. I now carry his name.
We initially lived in a tiny 8′ x 36′ trailer the first few years of my life. Dad had built bunk beds three layers high to sleep everyone. After a while, we graduated to a 10′ x 50′ metal hallway. We needed more room, because his mother, my grandmother, came to live with us. The funny thing is, we had no idea we were poor. As children, we thought we were living the life. We had everything we needed, love, a roof over our head, each other and we had fun.
My parents both dropped out of high school. I didn’t know. My dad was an aircraft mechanic and I though he was the smartest man in the world. He knew everything about airplanes. Mom was a bookkeeper. She kept the books for a couple of businesses.
Life has certainly changed since then. The last twenty-five years has been spent trading time for money. I have been a successful attorney practicing in the area of bankruptcy law. Success or not, I was burnt out.
As a solo practicing attorney, I hired internet marketing companies to assist me with my marketing. I also attempted my own personal marketing efforts on occasion. I found that when my own marketing efforts were used, my ability to attract new clients increased over the the efforts of the different companies we hired. We all utilized the same awesome technology that ‘everyone’ has access to. Yet my efforts created much higher profit margins. Maybe because I cared more about my business.
As the internet matured, I realized that there was an incredible opportunity staring me in the face. Here was a lucrative and powerful economic driver that far surpassed anything my law practice could create.
It is easy to see that the Internet is where business takes place, where people socialize, and where we gather and receive information! The internet has become the most effective way to reach markets, promote ideas, and to communicate with family and friends.
Creating an online business also requires less management time and fewer expenses than would normally be required in a traditional business.
Best of all, it doesn’t require a degree!
Although I loved assisting people with their financial lives, I didn’t own my time. I was looking for a way out, but I still need to make money. I took time to further educate myself in online marketing. The result? It is changing every aspect of my life. It is giving me to time to follow my passions and time to spend with my wife and family.
I am writing a book. I get to eat breakfast with my wife. My kids are grown. We are traveling and visiting new places around the world. It is giving me both time and money. The best part, I can work on the beach or anywhere else I choose as long as I have my computer or my phone and an internet connection. I am not confined to an office for 10 hours a day. The courts, judges and my calendar are no longer dictating how I spend my time.
I am a person with a lifetime of successes, and failures. I found that the career and life I had chosen was no longer satisfying nor serving me. Something was missing.
For 25 years I assisted clients regain their financial health and move forward in their lives. My own dreams and aspirations were left unfulfilled.
I was tired of chasing clients. I was tired of judges and the court system. I was tired of working long, stressful hours. I was tired of not being able to go on vacation because there were always some trial and hearing date that I had to be to. There was a time I couldn’t see an end in sight. I didn’t think I had a solution because bankruptcy law was all I knew. So, for the time being, I continued business as usual despite its restrictions and my lack of passion . . .
I did not want to be that person that died at his desk, never having lived out his personal dreams. Hopefully, this does not sound familiar. But if it does, are you the person with the potential that is currently being under-utilized. Are you the person who isn’t living out their passion because you have responsibilities. Do you have limiting beliefs that may be stopping you?
The wonderful thing is that you don’t have to do anything really crazy to go after your dreams. Plus, everyone around you, and those you love can also benefit!
The funny thing was that as I was looking for a way to leave my law practice, business took an upswing. I was busier that I had been in a few years. I felt more trapped than ever. I experience better than average income that year. But happiness is not just about the money . It was time to stop dreaming about travel and my perfect life and start creating it! I could not imagine another 25 years in the stressful life I had chosen.
I wanted freedom and unlimited income, but I had no idea how to have both.
As I was listening to a channel on YouTube, I came across a life changing training system that really made sense to me. It explained marketing in the digital economy that is currently exploding and how to take advantage of it. I was already using the internet to market my law practice. Now I can create a new business or several businesses, work from anywhere, increase my revenue streams, and reach massive markets quickly.
This possibility did not exist when I first launched my law practice. It is now the avenue that is allowing me to pursue my long-stifled dreams and aspirations. It is now an integral part of everything I do both personally and professionally.
I never imagined I would be able to really love my work, set my own hours, work anywhere in the world, dictate who gets my time, and determine how much I earn.
As a bankruptcy attorney, clients thought they were secure in their jobs, home life, health, only to discover there is no such security. Health issues, divorce, loss of employment and any number of issues can change your life very quickly. We create our own stability. I have been able to tap into some remarkable education. I have everything needed for anything I want to pursue, which also includes promoting great products and services that can generate passive income.
The best part is that the Internet doesn’t discriminate – no matter what your education level, age, tech knowledge, background, it doesn’t matter. It welcomes everyone with something valuable to offer! Everyone has something to offer.
If you are here, my guess is that you have an entrepreneurial mindset . . . you have the desire to control your destiny and to lift the limits on how you live your life. There is a way to achieve your goals without buying a franchise business, without investing in stocks or bonds, without buying real estate, and you can afford it, and it’s available to anyone!
When I stumbled upon this opportunity, I didn’t hesitate and I am so glad that I went with my gut instinct. If you choose to do the same, it could be the stepping stone to a life you dreamed of.
BUT IT TAKES A DECISION . . . one that you must see through to achieve your goals. That’s what every successful, wealthy entrepreneur does. It’s not an easy road, but it certainly can be an immensely rewarding one! And if you choose to join our entrepreneurial community, I will personally be here to assist you in any way that I can and invite you to reach out and schedule a chat with me. I wish you great success and abundance! You can start with free on demand workshops. It’s all just a click away.
