In 1984 after studying Economics at Missouri State University, I joined the United States Air Force and spent the next 4 years developing an important part of my character and one that I carry to this day. I had a lifetimes worth of great experiences during that time but the development of my integrity and strong work ethic are things that I will be eternally grateful to the Air Force for instilling in me.
In 1988 after I got out of the service, I had a strong desire to go into business and try my hand at being an entrepreneur. I bought a small “mom and pop” musical instrument company and in 6 years, transformed it into the largest musical instrument retailer on the internet. I still can’t believe that that was 1996…before Google, Amazon and Ebay. My brother and I continued to grow that company and eventually sold it in 2001.
At the same time that I was growing my music store and sometime around 1990, I was introduced to Network Marketing for the first time. Like everyone, I was skeptical but since my father is the one that introduced me so I thought… what the heck. So, embarked on an entrepreneurial journey that continues today. So….what MLM did I get involved with you ask? Amway of course…hasn’t everyone?
For the next few years while I was growing my retail music company, I managed to do pretty well in Amway. I made it all the way to the Direct level and that was when everything had to be done by hand. Orders, presentations… geez, everything was done by hand. Boy, how times have changed. Somewhere along the way, I lost interest in Amway and dabbled in several other MLM’s but never did much with them. Then I was introduced to Monavie. Here was a company and product that was growing out of its skin. I worked it really hard and became the first Ruby Executive in my state.
During the explosive growth of Monavie, It started to occur to me that not only was I good at this but I could multiply my efforts exponentially on the internet. You see, I forgot to mention that somewhere in the middle of all of this, I went back to school and received a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Marketing. I started studying everything I could get my hands on about online marketing, viral marketing, article marketing and attraction marketing….I was possessed with the notion that I could create a residual income from my home and keep a day job too if I wanted.
All of this brings me to where I am today. I am in constant pursuit of perfecting online marketing and now I want to give back. Yes, I work as a Marketing Director and Consultant for a major company by day but I use the same techniques for them that I am going to teach you. Having several sources of income is important and it isn’t rocket science. Does it take time and effort? Sure it does… anything worthwhile takes time and effort! I also recently joined another MLM but not for the reasons that you might think. Yes, this new MLM is incredibly cool but that isn’t the reason I joined. I joined because of the people that I was going to be involved with.
To have a successful business, I don’t care if you think you have the best lotion, potion, vitamin, service, widget or whatever. The strength and success of the company is determined by who is involved, not what is involved. The best case scenario however is when you have exceptional people and an exceptional product. I have found just such a company and product. What is it you ask? It’s Numis Network. There is nothing more exciting than showing people how to collect silver and gold assets, save money on their taxes and make a substantial income all at the same time.
You see, I have crossed paths with a lot of wonderful people over the years that are also online marketers or network marketers and sometimes it’s not what you know but who you know. My father always told me that in order to be exceptional; you need to surround yourself with exceptional people. That is exactly what I have done and what you should do too. So, what are you waiting for?
If you are still reading this, you obviously have the patience and drive needed to succeed in online marketing, network marketing or both. I would love to talk to you about your journey and I sincerely hope I can help you find financial independence. Now let’s get started!!
To your success,
