This is part 2 of my struggles trying to make it big online. Last time I just finished giving up $400 to a known scam with no way to get the money back. I gave up on the idea of generating guaranteed sign-ups and concentrated on the companies again. So I thought I just got in at the wrong time for these companies so next I jumped in a couple pre-launches, hoping for a lot of spillover, one company I am not even sure if they launched yet, it's been like a year. I almost joined xango, with a great sponsor who was based near where I live and was making $50k a month. She was featured in home business magazine and was incredibly nice but I never followed thorugh.
I still had the "Oh it's too late mentality." I tried an hourly call center this time. I quickly got good enough at the job I didn't have to go to the company site to answer questions, unfortunately my days of $9 an hour were quickly ending.
They demanded full time but my parents demanded school, guess who won. I just worked at Dunkin Donuts for a while at that point while attending college. I met some really nice customers, including a venture capitalist who was in his twenties, and an owner of an insurance companies who was also in his twenties. Success so young, why not me. I also met a few Monavie reps, some people who were so excited because of how much their friends made. Even a guy who was making $15k a month in the business, but my mind was just elsewhere.
At this point I thought, "let me go a safer route, what about stocks." You know the saying "it takes money to make money," it is truest when applied to the stock market. I thought I was learning quickly, unfortunately I was only learning the hard way. Penny stocks were volatile and sometimes dropped off the board. Yet I still thought "maybe if I buy when it goes back down, it will go back up." I was wrong, ended up losing hundreds again.
I even met a millionaire who began with stocks, its a lot easier during the dot com bubble though, especially when you have 50k to invest. I found a great job at the end of last year moving office furniture with a guy whose wife goes to my church. I have known his family a few years and they were great people.
I worked with him, his son who was my age, and one of my best friends. Best of all, I was making $14 an hour at age 19, I was loving it. I figured I could save more and try stocks again, then my awakening happened.
A day before New Year's I sprained my ankle, so badly that it still hurts today. I was forced to leave my job, my income, and struggle to maintain my debt from my failed stocks with the money I had left. I know what you're thinking, I made $14 an hour with no bills, I had plenty left. Remember this was right after Christmas, and I splurged because I "knew" I would make it back soon.
So I just kind of hung around my house thinking "what can I do, who knows when I can get back to work." So I checked all my spam mail searching for something. Strangely enough I checked an e-mail address I don't use anymore. I got this letter from someone I never heard about concerning this great company.
I checked out the company, it was only $30 to join so I thought, "why not, I have wasted more before." The same day I set up an adwords campaign and enrolled my first person. Pretty much my first real sponsored member ever. I thought this was pretty good, 1 person, 1 day, maybe this is a sign. My first good news ever, it was a sign, I sponsored another person my 4th day, then had 11 in my downline by the end of my first week. The week after I enrolled 3 in one day, I was ecstatic, I went from $50 my first week, to $200 the next month, and my check has been increasing every month since.
Then came the biggest turning point in my life, the introduction of Magnetic Recruiting techniques. As I learned, it contradicted every little thing I ever learned (literally little, I didn't know much), and guess what, it worked. Ever since then I have began modeling my recruiting methods, traffic generation methods, and business relationship building techniques around the magnetic principles. I knew there were people making it online, I just had to be one of them, that was my motivation. I didn't want to be wrapped up in work and miss seeing my kids grow up.
The last thing I want is to see my parents grow old by having stressful jobs whither away at their life. Everyone take up arms and conquer financial oppression. You have no excuse to keep living the way you are. Success can be made, the main factor is you.
I don't say this for sympathy but for hope, to show you that there is calm after the storm and that you can make it with perseverance.
