My Story

I live in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with my precious wife
and three beautiful daughters.

Things weren’t always so rosy as they are now.

I can vividly remember Christmas of 1999.

I was a desk clerk at a motel, working the 11 PM - 7 AM shift.

Take-home pay was $200.00 a week.

I had a wife and three children, and no money, no business,
no savings, no retirement, no medical insurance, no home,
no assets, no anything, and worst of all – no money for
Christmas presents.

I couldn’t even afford to buy my
kids a Happy Meal at McDonalds.

A very un-happy situation, to put it mildly.

There is nothing, except poor health, as terrible
to your soul as having no money.

It can ruin your relationships with your friends and your family.

It can make you feel hopeless, helpless and despondent,
and worthless to yourself, your family and to all of society.

I was at my wits end. I had nowhere to turn.

I had run across some information somewhere online.

A story about a guy that had
made it big in network marketing.

I called him up. Here’s a millionaire marketing guy
and you can actually call him!

Unreal.

It was Christmas Eve, and this guy takes my call.

I tell him my story.

Can you imagine listening to my mess on Christmas Eve?

And get this - I am not in his network marketing downline,
or even a customer of his!

He told me I needed to read a certain book.

I bought it immediately.

He sent me some tapes.

I went to his website and read all the articles.

I got on his free email marketing newsletter and printed
every one of them and put them in a binder to study.

It took more than a full week’s pay to order his marketing course,
and it’s the best money I’ve ever invested.

A couple of months later I borrowed $1,000.00 from
a friend to go to Atlanta, Georgia to meet him in person.

Was it worth it?

Fast forward…

In August of 2000, just eight months later,
I bought my family a home.

We’ve since then paid off all our bills.

I get checks in the mail almost every day now.

In fact, I dis-like holidays because the mail doesn’t run
and I don’t get any checks in the mail!

Thank goodness for the Internet, so I can
still make money online on holidays!

My wife and I both drive new cars.

We’ll be taking two or more vacations
(and I mean good ones!) this year.

We don’t have any bills.

We are major contributors to our church.

Waiters and waitresses at restaurants like to see us come in!

I just bought my wife a new wardrobe (not an outfit or two)
for Valentine’s Day.

I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

More importantly, we’re investing the money that
we’re making with our marketing business into
real estate and creating additional income and net worth.

Can I honestly recommend marketing courses?

What do you think?

I can honestly tell you that just the FREE downloads
and FREE email series can change your life like you
cannot even imagine.

Are YOU ready for a RADICAL change in YOUR life?

If you’re ready to really start making money in
your marketing business, it doesn’t matter what
business you’re in, MLM Traffic Formula can put
you over the top!

Your business and lifestyle can change like mine did.

Best of Success!

Tomorrow

The poor, the unsuccessful, the unhappy, the unhealthy
are the ones who use the word "tomorrow" the most.
