As a result of being more settled in my full time job I started paying attention to this gold mine, I started a business plan, I kept my mouth shut to new prospects until I had an implementation process ready to go
This venture has changed my life because I am looking at the big picture and how I can retire in 3 years and you looking to make 10k or more a month. Success no longer is solely measured by what I make, it is measured by what I give back, how much time I get to spend with my aging parents, and my growing children. I thirst for more time with them and flexibility to run my business fairly but as creative as I like while making about 4k a month in residual income. I then want to help others to realize their dream! This business venture can be a much as you want it to be or as little, you decide.
However, this has taught me to be more proactive in planning so that I can save more money, this has showed me that though I am reducing expenses like everyone else I do not have to sacrifice quality, I just have to learn to think different. STE offers webinars giving you tips on the best ways to maximize your savings. It is so much more than I ever initially thought. This commitment was made around mid June and by the first week of July 3 of the 5 have 2 or more brokers 1 of them has some great frundraising opportunities in the works that I assisted him in presenting, and I have 1 more who knows I am coming for her this month and was excited and told me that my enthusiasm was contagious! Finally, I am doing something that I believe in, that helps me leave this world in much better shape than I inherited it in, I can help causes and churches with the fundraising aspect, I can show my children how to be more environmentally conscience, train, teach, motivate……and make money too? This is crazy amazing to me.
Well I am not, I have made six figures over the last 6 years but my priorities have changed and my circumstances have changed
I will probably be condemned by all of the brokers(sorry) but I would personally recommend highly being a website owner prior to being a broker. I wish I knew what I had in March but until I started doing the webinars, dabble com training, and actually shopping on my site, there is no way I could have known. I believe if more people started as website owners they would be better prepared, better trained, and better equipped to answer questions without having to go up the chain to someone who is seasoned enough to answer it and loosing credibility or giving mis-information in the process. I believe that some people drop out because their sponsor was not trained on how to train their people and as a result they felt frustrated and isolated and gave up thinking that this would sell itself. They may not have had appropriate training or expectations or perhaps a little of both. I am still new and happy to answer what I can. Good luck to you in your decision making process! The risk at STE is essentially “no risk” for the possibility of being your own boss!
Anika, Mike and Jack.. Thanks for your insight. There are people that need to read what you have said. I get tired of the bloggers that spit out obsenities with no logical or factual backing, on both sides of the fence. Reading posts from those that can state facts, again, on both sides of the fence, help others to make good decisions. That sad part about your posts is that they are not at the top, or right under Darwins good posts. Between those and you, there is a lot of garbage, and that really is too bad. For me, Darwins comments, when not fighting with others, have been insightful, I hope that your viewpoints are seen as just as insightful… thanks!
